Hey there Jackie! So sorry I've been MIA for so long, I've been a bad, bad DISer I had about 20 pages to catch up on, I'm afraid I had to skip all the chatter and just read your updates, I'm all up to date now though - just in time for you guys to head home, seems like that is the trend on most of the TRs I'm subscribed to!

Oh noooooo, leaving is always the worst! It always makes me so sad.

I agree, ice cream from a dinosaur would should have been food enough for anyone!

Sigh. Why do trips have to end.....

Connor also got the LGM souvenir cup -- it is very cute although I must confess that no one has used it since we have been home.

After dinner we headed to a galaxy far, far away. It would be our last ride on Star Tours before the big change. A part of me is sad to see it change -- it is one of those rides I have always loved -- but the other part of me is really excited to see the changes they are going to make.

The rest of the evening was spent packing and getting things ready to leave the next day.

UP NEXT: Some last minute shopping and saying good-bye.
Maybe next time for you and Connor and ToT.
I know I will have to disappoint anyone who loves me if they ever ask me to ride Mission:Space. I will just hope they are forgiving.

Those Pizza Planet special cups are fun. We have a few, and I use one as my 'water on my nightstand' cup. They aren't very expensive, either, and you can pull them out when you have Disney-themed parties and meals.

Star Tours is one of my favorites, too, and I am excited to see what new fun they have in store for us with the update. I hope it is just awesome.

Just so you know, it is totally unacceptable for you not to have a report going. If I cover my ears, close my eyes, and say 'Blaaah, blaaah, blaaaah!', it means I did not hear you say this is going to be over.

How sad that Bo was not there to greet Chelsea.

I am going to ride ToT in January! I'm scared to death!

Glad Charles made it back to the hotel with no accidents - that's always a plus.

Poor Chelsea, no Bo! Hopefully he's looking real spiffy now.

I think ice cream for dinner sounds perfect.

I'm sorry to see this trip end but I'm looking forward to you new ptr.

I hate it that Bo was not there and you had no pixie dust when you went to Guest Services. I know that was a long shot but I was hoping when CM Karen took some notes she would be able to make something happen.

I am glad the nap calmed things down a bit.

I ToT. I understand not liking it but you have got to try it once. My DS will not go on either. He will ride every other coaster in any park.

Boo for the last day.

Ohhh it's the last nght in Disney already??

Pizza Planet is such a fun place to eat.
I would have done exactly what you did, no ToT.
Glad Charles made it back to the room.

Hmmm, will a new ptr start over the break?

Chelsea and Connor have the best expressions! So sorry Chelsea didn't get to see her main man. There's always next time!

I like Star Tours too. It is set to officially open just after my May trip so I am hoping against hope that it will be in "previews" while I'm there and I can try it out.

I've been lurking along and am so behind on DIS'ing... did you say that you'll be starting a PTR when this is done?

Dare I suggest that if Charles had gone along with your idea of ice cream for dinner, his stomach may not have gotten upset that night? JK Iím sorry to hear he wasnít feeling well, but glad you all made it back to the room.

Chelsea and Connor had the saddest little faces Hopefully she will be able to see Bo and he will be able to ride ToT on the next trip. Iíll join in with saying that I will only be able to get over the end of this TR if there is a PTR soon to follow!

I hate it when a favorite TR is coming to a close. It's the same sad feeling that you feel on your last day in the parks.

It is always so sad to come home. I have enjoyed reading your TR

However, I could have used some of that summer heat when we were there last weekend.

There is May to look forward to!

I know when I ride it, I will be glued to those bars.

That mickey bar antenna is too cute! I've never seen that one before... have yall put it up on your car yet?
I still haven't put it on the car yet -- I am not sure what I am waiting for -- we still have the cheetah print Mickey head on it.

Oh, yes, we will have to make sure we head back soon, so Chelsea and Bo can see each other.

Yes, he better be -- we really missed seeing him.

He is so stubborn about having "real meals."

Connor was being a complete stinker about it, too.

I am sure he is pining away! LOL!

It's weird to still be writing the TR in December -- I have never dragged out a TR for this long! I think I have a title for the PTR!

It's the attitude that I find hardest to deal with -- sometimes I just have to walk away.

I would predict there might be one before the end of the year.

It was pretty good. We would eat there again for sure.

She was very sad.

Maybe...I make no promises.

I know Disney will do a great job on it -- I will just miss the nostalgia attached to the ride.

I really hope so -- there is now a gap in the pictures of Chelsea and Bo.

You rode Everest three times, though! That earns you lots of points!

Glad ya'll made it back to the resort without further incident!
We have quite a few as well -- mugs from Typhoon Lagoon and CSR that are too big to fit in the drink holders in the car.
