Hi Rebecca! Glad to have you here. I hope you had a wonderful trip--looking forward to reading about it. I loved the Facebook updates I caught here in there.

Oh you do...we'll have to see if you guess is right!!

Thanks Mary! Hmm, perhaps I should put up a poll to see who all you think caused the most drama.

the opening picture is great the castle looks very pastely (ok not a word but you might get my drift)

also...the cruise trip ticker is that gone as in trip not on anymore?
It is what it is, I cannot change. By all means, it was still a good trip, but there were definite lows for sure hence the Lots of Drama part in the title.

It does have a pastel look to it but I still like the picture despite the sweat!

RE: Cruise--I am going to address that here in a minute

Hi Sara! in case I have not said that, I cannot remember if I have or not.

Yippee for an upgrade!! I want to try GF we almost decided to stay there in May but we are holding off until DD gets older.

I noticed the cruise ticker is gone too, did you change plans?
Nope, you have not missed too much. This is going to have to be a slow moving TR--I have so much going on that DISing is going to have to be a little here and there right now.

RE Cruise: I am going to update on that in just a few.

OT: Cruise Update

Well, not completely since it is Disney related but it is more of a life update.

I interrupt this trip report to answer a question/observation a couple of you have commented on:

We have canceled our cruise we had schedule for in May. It was my decision to do so with it, but I am okay with it. We thought about going down to Disney instead, and almost did switch it to be that but wait for it, I said no to it to!! I know, I know what am I thinking turning down a trip but here’s the gist: I do not want to be stressed when we go down—it is not worth it. We have a whole lot that is going to be happening; one potential big one is a very big move. Once we select which program I am going to enter for my doctoral degree, it could involve a substantial, out-of-state move. I rather save the money to help with it, than being stressed on every penny we spend in Disney. It also allows the fall trip we also have had book to be much more feasible. I do not think we could have swung the cruise and flights in May, moving in the summer with at least one scouting trip before the moving time to find a place to live and the trip in October with flights without our savings taking a hit. So that is why I took down the ticker for the cruise and put up one for the fall trip.

We know when I graduate and settle into my job as a professor, once we are at a good place, we are going to buy DVC. There are many trips in our future!! So yes, all of you who assumed the NEVER AGAIN aspect of my title does not apply to Disney in general.

It may not be until this weekend when I get an actual update from our TR. I hope I don't lose all my readers by then but I did warn you all it was going to have to be a slow moving TR.

Also, if we are friends on FB, please do not make any references to what is said here on DIS PLEASE!!! Those who caused drama, are on Facebook too so I don't want anything to be said on there please, please, please! I have started putting pictures up on Facebook, so don't look if you do not want a preview of what is coming. Also, there are more pictures coming than what I put up--even for Day 1.

Next Post: Traveling to Disney: Day 1

Stef, it seems as if you made the best choice for you, especially if there is going to be a major move over the summer. Disney isn't going anywhere as we all know and it will be there when you are comfortable going again.

And I'm here for the long run...no matter how long it takes.

You made the right decision. You definitely don't need to be stressing about finances when you have all of that going on. It'll be there waiting for you in the fall. When you're more settled, maybe you can look into a land/sea package so you get the best of both worlds.

I'll be here whenever you update!

Thanks Kathy! It was a bit hard to believe I gave up a cruise and a trip to Disney in May, but is the best decision for us.

Thanks!! I am glad you will stick around!

Thanks Jenny!! I know it is the right decision, I am okay with it--it is better this way. We definitely will do the combo when we go on the cruise.

Thanks for sticking it out with me!!

First of all, you are not moving...out of state anyway! I won't allow it! I will, however, allow you to move within the community!!

Second, I'm bummed you decided to cancel the cruise, but I'm sure you'll take one soon. I am super excited about our fall trip. I don't think I am going to tell Emily about it at all. We might make it a total surprise and then having Lilian there, she'll be over the moon! We'll see though, I may not be able to keep a whole trip quiet! She's definitely not finding out about Lilian though!

Finally, I don't know if I mentioned it, but you are not moving out of state!!
