I told Charles I suspected you were plotting on how to get me on ToT! We'll need to start making plans to hang together! I am so excited, and I just know Connor is going to be over-the-top at seeing Baylor again!

If not, they will get over it! That was my philosophy with Connor.

Good idea! I think it will come in handy at the pool next summer.

From what I have read, it is going to be super cool!

I think I might be able to make you feel better with a PTR.

I just hope I can manage to find something to write about on the new PTR.

It's okay -- we did head over and ask at Guest Services, but to no avail.

Well, I did ride it in 1997. I have tried all the rides at least once except for RnRC and Mission:Space.

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?
Yes, sadly, it was the last night. My plan is for there to be a new PTR before 2011 starts.

What are your dates? I am wondering if we are going to just miss each other.

Well, we might have booked a Free Dining package, so I think that calls for a PTR.

Yes, hopefully on the next trip all their dreams will be realized.

I am really missing the summer heat these days! I don't deal well with cold weather.

Sad to see that Bo still wasn't there for Chelsea...I guess you just HAVE to go back in 2011 to say hello! ::hint hint::
We "might" have booked a package which means we "might" be there at the same time as you!

We Head Home!

July 23, 2010

Back when I was first planning the trip, I had thought we might head to a park on our last day. I do this all the time. I always think we will have the energy and motivation for one last trip down Main Street. It has never managed to happen, so the next trip, I am not even going to pretend that we are going to a park on our last day. It will strictly be our departure day.

On our last morning, we took our time getting ready and packing. The only event of any interest was my last trip to the Caribbean Beach Resort gift shop. I felt the need to buy a few more souvenirs.

I bought some coconut patties for my dad and my MIL’s husband.


I picked out t-shirts for Connor and me.




Since I had been unable to find a CD of the Main Street Electrical Parade, I decided we needed the Illuminations one. I love the music from it!


We were on the road by 9:30, and the drive was pretty uneventful. Charles commented that it was the best trip we had had, and then thought he would be funny by saying, “Too bad it was our last trip.”

Silly man.

We didn’t reach home until 7:00, though. Why? Three words: Atlanta Rush Hour. Ugghh!

Our week of fun was officially over. Time for Chelsea to enter back into the real world where complete strangers didn’t stop her to wish her a Happy Birthday.

UP NEXT: Final Thoughts and “Sensing a new PTR, I am!”

The real world always seems so harsh after a week in the Disney bubble, doesn't it?

Hurrah for a new PTR and a dining package! My dates are 4/30-5/6... when are yours?

I'd like to sense a new CP PTR.

Love the souvies. Such great colors on those shirts! And who doesn't love some coconut patties? Yum, yum.

The coconut patties are a good souvenir. I bet, unlike I would have, they didn't keep the boxes when the food was gone. It's hard for me to throw away any kind of Disney food box or wrapper. I have a bunch of empty packages in the hutch with my Chef Mickey. I think that totally seals the deal on me being a Disney dork.

Oh, man, you could have spent that Atlanta rush hour time at the CBR pool or DTD or somewhere in Disney World!!! I don't know when Atlanta is not busy. We've been through there in the middle of the night, and it was plenty busy then.

You did get your parade music, eventually, didn't you?

Well, well, well - Charles was cracking jokes on the way home.
I bet he's already secretly been plotting things to do on the next trip.

Thank heavens you have a PTR coming. I can't go too long without my Connor and Chelsea stories. Plus, it's just so doggone fun to follow along as our friends plan where they are going to stay and eat and play the next time around!

I know I missed a few updates over the past month or so, but I really enjoyed your TR. What a wonderful trip! I enjoyed all the pictures of the kids and the souvies.

to a new PTR! Can't wait for all the details. I second what Christine said - early May is a great time to visit the world. Just sayin'

Last minute souvenir shopping helps ease the pain of departure.
We never plan to visit parks on our last day either. We just have a relaxing breakfast and catch an afternoon flight home.

Looking forward to your new ptr

As always, this has been a fabulous TR, Jackie!

I'm sad to see it end, but happy to know that another one is coming!

And YAY for Charles saying this was the best trip yet!
