My DS5 usually won't say more than 2 words on the phone, but is more than happy to see Granny and Grumpy on the computer and has a lovely chat with them. Give it a try! And I hope that your trip is as wonderful as can be, you certainly deserve some time out.
Thank you for stopping by......I guess I really should look into this video chatting.......I'm not super computer smart.....but this really might be a great way to deal with our absence.

Looks like you have a trip coming up as well!!!! Hope it's *+*+*magical*+*+*!!

So as I work on my little planner book that I carry into the parks with me, I've come up with a list of things to do.....things we've never had time to get to on other trips or it wasn't the families idea of fun, so it got skipped. I also have a list of some treats we've never tried but want to!!

My TO DO LIST:

Big Thunder Ranch
Disney Gallery
Great Moment's with Lincoln
Ride the Lily Belle
Innoventions
Ride the Jungle Cruise at night
Animation Academy
Turtle Talk w/Crush
Blue Sky Cellar

My TO TRY LIST:

Bengel BBQ
Gibson Girl Ice Cream
Cove Bar
Rita's Baja Blenders
Uva Bar (need one of Michele's Upside down Pineapple Cake drinks)

We rode the Jungle cruise at night for the first time on our Christmas trip. Amazing how you can find something new about a ride you have probably rode 100 times. Don't think I ever would have thought of it without the DIS and all 3 of us loved it!

We already had discovered that riding Big Thunder Mt RR at night was a totally different experience.....so looking forward to seeing that with the Jungle Cruise ride.

Sweet!!! Disappointed that I'll miss Captain EO.....really wanted to get to it last summer......read somewhere that it's coming out this month....so it will be gone before my trip.

Maybe I can hope for the Little Mermaid ride opening really early in March!!! They still haven't listed an opening for that....just spring.....well March 3-10 is spring!!!

So I just ordered our WoC picnic meals for Wednesday, March 9!! I get to see WoC twice on this trip....one from the preferred dining area (which we did last summer) & now from the picnic viewing area.......really excited!!!

I can't find anything on it now.....wondering if they changed their minds?? It either came up as a post on FB from one of my many Disneyland pages or I read it a few months ago as an upcoming closure/refurb. I know I read it was closing in February & Honey was coming back......I had commented to my hubby that I was disappointed we didn't make it to it last summer because it would be gone prior to the Diva trip......but can't find a thing on it now. Maybe it will still be going & I'll get a chance to go to it!!!!

I know I read it somewhere, but can't find it now......its not on any of the closures for refurbs & such.......so either I'm totally on drugs......or they scraped that idea (maybe it was one of those rumors)??

It's possible that it was one of those rumors you know how they fly on the internet.
