I can't believe you forgot Lumar's socks...you were so careful about packing

I love your first CSR photo (can we go home now?????).

Your dessert looks very tempting...may have to give that one a whirl. We've never been to the restaurant but we thought of putting it on the list for a future trip.

I didn't get any chocolate either at the party.

Your TR is off to a great start.

First of all, nice title.

MNSSHP needs to stop with the raisins! I got like 20 boxes of raisins last year. I was not a happy camper lol.

I'm thinking about staying at CSR for my 2012 trip. So I'm looking forward to reading all about it

NO socks for Lumar. That's too funny, I always have that fear that I will forget something, something important at that. At least socks are something you can easily pick up. Packing for my 4 kids and husband, I usually forget something of mine. Great pics too, I love the pics of the resort and of the food. That food from Paradiso, looked fantastic and so tasty. I am so excited to hear more.

CSR looks so pretty! I really want to stay there someday! I keep checking to see if there is any availability when I'm there, but it's booked! Maybe next year! Yay for getting your requests!

That dessert sounds amazing...I love anything sweet! And I love cosmos, that's my drink that I order when I can't think of what I want!

Can't wait to read more!
You DID warn me! My friend at work LOVES it and my mom fell in love with it just bringing us and picking us up! It's a lot closer for her than JFK or Laguardia or Bradley...so SHE liked it. I'll stick with Bradley now that JetBlue will be using them!

I have a ton of pics I took at CSR! It's beautful! I can't wait to get to our resort day so I can share them!

Cosmos are my favorite too! And that Chocolate Stack....

Im in and if those pics were from your cell phone they were pretty darn good. Glad to see your including some food porn as not having to cook for an entire weeks is one of the best things about going to the world for me. 9 more days for me so can't wait to read the rest of your TR
Thanks for joining in! Yes, those pics were from my cell (it's the original Droid through Verizon) and I was quite happy with how they came out! ITA about the no cooking thing! The food is my favorite part of vacation...well, that and the no-work part!

I couldn't believe I forgot them either. Wait until you hear what happens when we revisit this....

I want to go HOME, too!!!

I really liked Paradiso, A LOT! My sister and her boyfriend want to come with us next year and if they do, we are totally taking them to Paradiso 37. It was a great experience!

I thought the candy selection was supposed to BETTER this year??

LOL Thanks! It's totally fitting for the overall story!

They do need to stop with the raisins! I only got one box but STILL! This is Halloween for Pete's sake!

At least you have a bunch of people to worry about so you have an excuse! How does someone who's only packing for 2 people forget SOCKS of all things?

One of my friends at work loves that airport too, which is why I decided to try it in May! You know what I hated the most about it? Baggage claim. They just throw all the bags from every flight on ONE carousel and you have to sift through like, 4 flights of luggage to find your bags, it sucked!

There was only one other flight that came in with us, so we didn't have any trouble with that. But the overall feeling to me was just "cramped." And $8 for an egg & cheese sandwich was just the icing on the cake!

Great start!

Lumar and I are clearly opposites. I have been known to forget socks on WDW trips on purpose, so I have an excuse to buy socks with Mickey or Minnie or Tinkerbell on them. I now probably have about 14 pairs of Disney socks.

That sucks that you didn't get any chocolate! At the 10/22 party, I got three mini Snickers and a Clarke bar. And Sixlets, though I'm not sure those count as chocolate, considered they're labeled "chocolate-flavored candy"!

Famous last words.....
They do, they just have Minnie and Tinkerbell on them

I bought some either last year or the year before and I love them. I honestly don't know why he cares about his socks so much...In WDW no one cares, and at home he wears pants all the time so no one can see them!

OMG he LOVES Sixlets! Didn't get any of those either, though!

Pretty much! I tried to get him to buy those socks they sell in the Japan Pavilion that are made for wearing with clogs (the big toe is separated from the others) and he just kind of looked at me and walked back to the anime section.

I want to try the drive just once and see how we do. I can't convince Lumar to do it though. Maybe one of these trips!


Working on the next installment now!

To be honest, I would've given you the same look

Just remind him that you did suggest pullling in to Walmart or Target really quickly. If he's anything like my DH, I recommend that you do so from.....

I'm In ! Another Ct neighbor here. Can't wait to read more Had we not had to cancel our trip for November, we were going to fly out of White Plains for the first time too. I had heard it was small but had no idea it was that small. One thing I noticed when Jet Blues schedule came out for Bradley, it only had 2 flights per day where as White Plains had four so when we finally end up going chances are we will head to White Plains, before we flew out of JFK which is just too big for my likeing.
I never forgot to pack socks or underware but that is because I always buy new for the trip,so they go straight from the store into the suitcase.
