9 stops huh? During our recent drive to St Louis (which is about 7 1/2 hrs) we stopped twice - I think Don would come unglued if I asked him to pull over 9 times!

Regardless, you're in WDW!!!!

Next time Benadryl for Charles!!!!

Glad you made it! Yes, I have heard McDonald's coffee drinks are good but I made the mistake of looking up the calorie count.

Loving Connor's happy disney dance.

Love the pictures along the way! Everyone at work was talking about how good the coffee is now at McDonalds and it really is...I was quite impressed!

Love Connor's happy dance....that's normally what Jasmine does when she gets off the plane

I can't wait for pics ar CB, I really really really want to stay there

Great update. Chelsea seems to have done a pretty good job with her picture taking.

Wow! That's a lot of stops! I'm glad you finally made it there! I can't wait to hear if the room was ready or not.

I enjoyed how Chelsea documented your stops. I am more like Conner on our trips, my DH drives and I read. WE are usually good for at least 5 stops.

Oh my ... what a great update. So many things I want to comment on.

Are you the designated driver for the whole trip? God bless you, if so.

Glad Charles is comfy with his pillow. So next time you are flying, huh? Speaking of next time, did anyone book bounceback??

Looks like the camera was the perfect gift for Chelsea! She's making good use of it!

9 stops seems like a lot. But also seems like you made good time, in WDW by 2:30pm.

Love the happy Disney dance.

9 stops?! I think DH would most certainly murder me if I asked him to stop that many times. Can't say that I blame him on the Blizzard stop, though.

McDonalds does have good coffee drinks, but I prefer their sweet tea!

Chelsea cracks me up with her teenage-ness. Glad to hear that she is enjoying her camera so much!

LOVE that Walt Disney World sign!! I take a picture of it every time.

Connor's happy dance - too cute!

I'm betting that your room was ready, but was located in a less-than-ideal location. And I'm curious as to what the kids suggested that you didn't heed...

YAY! You started your TR!

Love all the pictures of Chelsea's birthday meals! Rachel got the same camera, same color, for her 13th birthday!

Waiting patiently to find out where your room was, if it was a good location and why do you need to listen to your kids?!?!?!

Great update! I have a feeling it's going to be very interesting to see the Disney trip through Chelsea's eyes.

I see Connor was wearing his Teva Mush Flippies, did they make it into the parks?
