I'm here!!! Can't believe you started this last night! If I had only stayed on a little bit longer!

Love the story about DS5 and the pixie dust!!! Could that be any cuter??? Of course, the image I have in my mind of him scooting around on his hiney trying to get pixie dust for flying is hilarious!

A reunion and let's eat!

So before I really start my first day at Disney, I guess I should revisit the trip I took BEFORE my Disney vacation. If you were following my PTR, that would be a business trip to attend a workshop in New Orleans, LA. I had been once before, back a few years ago, but that was in the fall. Here it was the week before my vacation began, and I was on my way to another state! I not only had to pack and plan for this work-related travel, but also for our vacation -- for myself and my kids! – before I left Maryland! While I was away, my DH and my DMIL held down the fort for the final two days of school and my husband had his final staff day before the year officially ended. My end of the year was spent in a climate-controlled conference center on Canal Street!!!! Now I really didn’t take pictures people, sorry to disappoint. I managed to take a few of the movie they were filming in the lobby, and a few of my surroundings, but generally I left my camera alone. I ate some great food, had fun with some colleagues, and overall had a fabulous professional experience. It got me relaxed for sure, and really ready for my Disney trip. Here are a few that I was able to scrounge up...

OF course the most important icon of New Orleans:

So we made the trek to Cafe Du Monde twice ... we got up early and skipped the conference breakfast, opting instead for Beignets!!!!

Here is a random photo of me, with my friends (whom I don't think will kill me for posting this on the DIS ) This is somewhere on Burbon Street... YES, we walked up and down that street a few times... I am on the far left...

HERE is the view from the window of my room... DONT laugh. You would think I could have remembered to, oh, OPEN the blinds!!!

The pics from the movie they were shooting in the lobby are on my phone. I have to email them to myself before I can add them to Photobucket. I will fill you in later this week in a separate update.

So my workshop ended on the 20th of June. The day before, my DH and two boys drove down to Lorton, VA, a few hours from our house, and boarded the Amtrak Auto Train. Now, we all took the autotrain last year, on our first summer trip. If you want to see photos, check out my TR in my signature We LOVED it! Or, better yet, check out DDisrunner's new TR! She has train photos, too! I did entrusted a small camera to my DH, however, and asked him to take a few train photos. Here is what he was able to come up with…

(notice in this photo they are getting "sassed" by Evil Emperror Zurg. More on HIM later)...

And here I think they are watching Clone Wars or Toy Story.

SO, initially we were all going to drive down to Disney, but because of the training, and not wanting DH to make the drive solo, we went with the family taking the train down. They arrived in the morning of the 20th, and drove to Bay Lake Towers!!! Me, well I caught a 2pm plane bound for Orlando. I then went from the airport via taxi to the BCV. I didn’t take ME because I was afraid that I would miss dinner. I know I know funny, right?? Well, missing Le Cellier for dinner was NOT an option for me. We had a 6:15 reservation… DH and the boys checked in at BLT, went to the pool, then changed and drove to the Beach Club. They left my AP at the front desk, and headed to Epcot to catch a ride or a pavilion, and check in for dinner. I took my cab to BCV, left my luggage with bell services, collected my AP from the front desk, and walked out BC and over to the IG (or Anita and Christine’s PRIVATE entrance! ) my sights on …
