I need to revamp my siggie quite a bit, but look what I added!

YAY!



Now I need to make a spreadsheet, check park hours, book ADR's - so much to do!


Mary Ellen: What I've learned from this TR is that TR's can be fun and I promise I'll do one for this Sept trip with LOTS of pics, if you promise to read it!

Sorry your trip report is coming to a close.
I truly enjoy all the wonderful pictures you ladies provide, just beautiful.
Looking forward to the recap etc.


btw, the screwcap on wine is called a Stelvin Closure.(she says in her snootiest voice) it "think" it started with a particular winery etc.

I see it more and more at work, but mostly on whites. Not so much on reds, where people look for the nice red moist cork end.

That's great Jen! Your trip is going to be great. I wish I was going that time of year, but my friends picked HH. As soon as my contract passes (*O please, O please, O please*), I am going to nail down some dates for Denny and I. I was going to go after T'giving, but I may wait and try the first week of December.

Trip reports are fun, plus I have met the nicest people through the TR boards - 5 of which I will be vacationing with in May. Where else does that happen but here!

I will definitely read your TR Jen. I just don't know where you will find the time.

That is interesting! The things you learn here on the boards. Thanks for that interesting tidbit. I am drinking out of a bottle right now with a Stelvin closure.

Great "dragging yourself out of Disney" shots!! You got some wonderful ones of Serveur Amusant...I'm always cringing too much to take pictures!

Love that Figment made an appearance on the pin merchandise...I love that guy, it makes me sad how often he is maligned! (Actually, I'm wearing my Figment shirt right now! )

That'd exactly how I felt - like I was dragging myself out of Disney.

Glad you like Serveur Amusant's pictures. That is such a fun act to watch, but now that I know he's really from Russia, the illusion is ruined.

I like Figment, too! You have a Figment shirt - that's pretty cool. I have never seen one! I would love a Figment T.

As always, wonderful pictures!!! Those pin ones are so cool.

Jen - I'm glad you have a buyer for your big contract. Too bad it's not me! Got any March UY?
Looks like you can get started on some big planning for your next trip!! We really liked CBR.

This has been such a fun TR to read! I always got excited for an update and more amazing pictures! Thank you both for sharing!

I hate that the trip report is almost over. I loved looking at all of your beautiful pictures and reading about your adventures. At least I can still look forward to your final thoughts.

Jen, I see that you've decided your headed back to Disney but I guess I missed where you decided to stay.

I've not deserted you Jen and MaryEllen; things have just been super busy with my brother, work and things at home. I am still reading, just haven't had a lot of time to comment. The pictures continue to be great.

Jen, it looks like we miss you by a couple of weeks.

Oh my goodness with the stressful last day!

That wait for the bus was ridiculous! I must admit that with our Oct stay at BLT and recent stay at Poly Iíve come to realize that Monorail resorts have terrible bus service! We waited 45 minutes for an AK bus! There, of course, was standing room only and there was a squabble over who was getting on the bus! Who had been there longer kinda thing! UGH!

I do, however, think itís hilarious that you took a picture of a women scratching her derriŤre!!! LOL!!!

The AP trouble would have killed me! Really? How did the CM not realize that you werenít upgrading for just that trip?! Hello!

Love the video! The song and your voice are beautiful!

Your DHS pics are amazing as are you pics from your ride on the Friendship boat! BTW, I donít think remembering the 5 and 10 from your childhood doesnít show your age! Because, I remember going to the 5 and 10 when I was kid! Although Iím not sure that anything cost 5 or 10 cents!

I still have all my fingers and toes crossed for your resale DVC buy, MaryEllen!!!!!

I have the opposite disease of you! My disease is ďitís the last day, Iím in denial, so take hardly any pictures!Ē Itís very annoying! Because I always, always regret it!

Not brave enough for the SAB slide?! Girl, you go on TOT!!! I think we all have to try it once! My niece and DD conned me into the slide at poly! I ended up hitting my elbow and giving myself a cut! YIKES!


Your pics of Boardwalk from the boat are amazing too! I really, really hope I can get it for Dec!!!

More beautiful epcot pics and you found a hidden mickey like mine frin outside of Caseyís in Oct!!! I must say your Epcot pics have me longing for some good quality WS time in May! Itís very, very hard to get that with 3 kids or with a DH who doesnít feel well! Wooo hooo!!! Ok, one more time, Wooooooo hooooooooo!

Awww, I hate to see it end! But, I know there will be lots more Disney fun to be had soon!

Jen, good luck with school!!!!

ActuallyMary Ellen we spent our 40th & 43rd anniversary at WDW. No better place for me. A great way to go "overseas" without all of the hassles.

Jen it would be so great to have a meet in Sept.

My ticker seems to have disappeared & I couldn't fix it.

I know she is happy (and sad, too).

Hey - I have a March UY too. I swear....it is hard to find hand ons for March.

I like CBR too. Good memories there!

I think CBR is official for Jen. I think she's pretty excited. She loves trying new places. I know that feeling - I love staying at new resorts.

No worries. I know you have had a ton of stuff going on. Last time I checked your TR there was nothing new written, so I know you have been super busy. Glad you have a few minutes to stop by.

I was wondering about that because really, we hardly took any buses. We went to AK one day and the only other time we took a bus was to HS. I really dislike waiting for buses. It's just a drag, particularly when its hot and crowded.

When I looked at those pictures I was actually a little surprise myself, that I did that. I must have been feeling especially ornery at that moment. That's what the "I'm sick" phone call from 1000 miles away will do to you!

Really! You said it! Clearly he was inexperienced and probably just learned how to upgrade tickets so he didn't know what he was doing.

I still wonder, to this day, if I hadn't discovered it, what would have happened in May. You would be waiting a long time for me in Mexico!

Really? I thought they did away with 5 and 10's when I was a kid. Gee - I'm not as old as I thought! lol!

Did you forget my Vero Beach trauma??? (how quickly they forget). I am now officially afraid of water slides, but I'll give it a go...maybe!

Thank you and I hope you can get the Boardwalk, too. Weren't you supposed to stay there during one of your many trips???? Forgive me - your trips do get a little confusing. I wish we all had that problem.

If my VWL passes than I want to stay there over the holidays, but I also really want to try the Boardwalk.

Glad you like my (not so) hidden Epcot Mickey.

I want to spend LOTS of time in the WS. Love it there!

Oh - and Jen - she's a freakin genius...she will ace school!

Nice! So you have had firsthand experience on the greatness of an anniversary at the world. I was so impressed with our anniversary experience.

Actually, I posted a little unexpected trip that I am taking in 24 days to Florida (but no Disney). I am super excited.
