I am enjoying your trip report so far. I can relate to getting lost at POR in the Alligator Bayou section. I was there for two weeks and could never figure out the logic behind all of those paths and how they related to the buildings which didn't seem to be numbered in a common sense way. I got lost and turned around many of times.

OH, that is funny!! Glad you are here and joining in!!! Are you doing a PTR, too? I will need to check it out!! Three kiddos (plus!) is a handful, but fun, too!!!

You started, yeah! My kids would have been a mess that late at night, yours look like they handled it well in the pictures! Love Jet Blue, those TVs are so great!

Hoping you got to sleep in a wee bit the next morning!

Loving it so far of course. Love the pic of you and Todd on the bus, Todd's floating head with Cole and Lucas on the bus ( ), of course the one of Coley catching a ride at the airport and the boys sleepily lined up in front of the t.v. at the resort. Can't wait for more

Thanks! Yes, I've started one (I put it in my siggy, if it works), but our trip is a looong time away...Sept. 2011! Probably the longest PTR ever! And I agree, the more kids, the merrier!! People always think we're out of our minds to have three...just wait until they find out we actually want another one!
I am absolutely amazed at the picture of your three sitting and watching the Disney movie when you were checking in. I think I have two pictures of all my kids together! And yours are well-behaved and it's late at night--so impressive!

Okay, all caught up now! And yay, you have arrived!!!!! How AWFUL about having to wait so long on the ME and then having to drag all that stuff, and the tired kiddos around the resort. I am VERY surprised they didn't offer help! I'm with ya, after all that I would have been getting frustrated and cranky too!

But that Mickey welcoming you.... I sure hope your room is easier to find in the DAYLIGHT though!

(also glad you were able to carve out some DIS time! I hope things fall into a routine for you again!)

So jealous you got to stay at POR...that is one of my FAVORITES and I have great memories of it when we were only a family of 5 . I just love the atmosphere of the resort...and boat to DTD!

It looks pretty cool to arrive to such an empty airport.

Magical Express looks like such a great way to get to Disney. We will probably always rent a car so I don't know if we'll ever have a chance to try it. I really want to though.

POR. It really stinks that no one offered to help you to your room. I'm sure it was no fun trying to find your room in the dark with 3 tired kids.

The AB looks so nice. We were in the mansions section and although the outside is pretty I wasn't fond of the interior. It reminded me of my grandma's house.

It must be great to go to sleep and wake up in Disney!

Great updates! The last time I checked your TR, you were still on page 1, so when I saw 3 pages, I knew I was behind!!!

I LOVE the picture of Cole with Todd and the suitcases. . .super cute. It isn't funny how you think your favorite pictures will be your family with a character or in front of a park icon, or something cliche like that- then, once you get back, you see your favorite picture is something on the mundane side!!!! I LOVE that!

Can't wait to read more.

Eek! That was a late arrival...I would have been sooo tired! I can't believe there was no offer of help with getting to your room either!

Cole hitching a ride on the suitcase is sweet. Don't you wish you could have done that?

Can't wait for pics of POR...I haven't seen too many pics of that resort.

Great update!!!

Your trip in sounded so smooth even with 3 boys - who I have to say are gorgeous!

I cant wait for the next update!

I havent started packing yet, but all of my OL things are unched together in the corner of my room...and I got some pins too!! In your spare time, (HA!) check out my PTR.
