I just found a few things I knew I might forget to respond to if I did not quote every 20 pages or so!!!

I posted my responses in BLUE!


You don't totally suck as a friend. We probably started this thing when you were super busy and you have had your own health issues to deal with it. I find that if I don't DIS every or every other day, I get way too far beyond and then its really hard to catch up.

I'm so glad you got a chance to really catch up today. Jen and I really did have such a fab trip. It's been fun to write about it!

Jen's DH is really tall. I think he might have an inch or so on Dan. It will be interesting to see how tall her boys get.

Thanks so much for stopping by and catching up Dawn! Tell Leah that I love her idea and I will use it for every trip report!

#4 Be respectful to everyone you meet and never treat anyone lesser than you for any reason because your life may soon depend on their generosity, kindness and a strength you do not posses no matter what you think you bring to the table.



This is a great quote Dawn and certainly words to live by!

Nothing like a good all update based on drinking and Kim Possible missions!

Exactly. If I am going to sit somewhere to drink in Disney, I want it to be outside. Since I have any one rita from the Cave yet, I have a lot of catching up to do!

OK - I will think really hard about it because it would be really fun to meet you ladies. I really like late August/early September for a visit to the world. Its a great time! And having an AP that is still good until 9/12 certainly doesn't hurt!

Yes, CSR. The original plan was for Epcot on the 5th, but guess who foiled that?You got it...those stinkin' grads! MK is on the 5th now, Epcot on the 6th. The 6th will be our "beat down Futureworld" day, where we don't even step foot in World Showcase. Dinner at Coral Reef. We have 3 more days in Epcot beyond that, so there will still be lots of drinkin'!

Well, I know you guys love Epcot so its great that you can visit so much during your trip. I like the idea of "beatdown Futureworld". That would be fun, but I would probably HAVE to sneak over to the world showcase for a little adult refreshment. Let's see if you REALLY make it all day!

We have good will power when it comes to resisting the urge to get a drink on that day. Well, as long as you don't count the drink at dinner, booze-filled dessert, and drinks back at the resort that night

I will read at both! I will!

I'm a chronic procrastinator, though that's no excuse. I am still adjusting to reading more than one TR at a time, though

We are going the day after Labor Day. May I will be there the same time as some of you. I like that time, it used to be very quiet.

Isn't it amazing how kids can give you that will power! When my kids were that age I knew I needed every bit of energy for them.

And - NO - the dinner drinks and booze filled desserts do NOT count!

No problem! You are going late September - right? Ahhhhh....Sept.....so tempting. I wish I could live there for the whole month of September and the first two weeks of October, too!

Kathy - its obvious that we can't push him too hard or...well....we don't know what might happen! But it probably won't be pretty!

Well, if I do go late August through LD weekend you better believe I am staying for a few days after Labor Day. I have always wanted to be there right after LD. I bet it is the lowest crowds of the year!

My DH & I have gone twice the day after Labor Day. The parks were so empty, it was unbelieveable! No waits for anything, we sometimes just stayed on the ride since no one was waiting.

The last trip was in the middle of Sept. which was a different story. Seemed crowded to us after that. So many school aged children were there also.

When my kids were younger we would go the very last week of August leading up and through LD weekend. My kids often don't start school until after LD. Once year I got an amazing deal on a flight that left at 7:30pm on LD monday. My kids hated me for getting them home so late the day before school started, but by 4pm there was no one left at Disneyworld. Our resort looked like a ghost town. I remember wishing I could just stay there.
