I want to see Brave!!

Well I'm in south Carolina right now. We were supposed to head to Florida tomorrow, but since its "raining " we have decided to hang out here for a few days. The bride says the wedding will still happen on Thursday, so we'll head down Wednesday and go from there.
On top of all that one of the fires in Colorado was in Estes Park, where my grandpa lives. Stubborn old man refuses to leave...grr. they lost 20 some odd buildings however that particular fire is taken care of, but if they could get some rain out there it would be wonderful.

Well I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Enjoy your week!

Thank you!

Haven't used the new camera yet, but I already love it.

Brave was amazing! I need to go buy some of the music on itunes!

Brave was really good, I saw it for the third time today with my Marathoner friends (my friends and I hold Disney Movie Marathons several times a year for several days straight and have become known as The Marathoners - we go all out for these Marathons). Definitely worth a watch.
Thank you!

Sounds like a lot of fun!

y'all remember Jen, right? she used to be a Snowbird--JenJolt is her screen name I think!! Drawing a total blank if that is not right--anyway she is at Disney right now...she's at MK and is having a ball!! apparently, lines are great due to rain!!
I,personally, hate being wet. Just don't like that feeling AT ALL...of course, if I was wearing a bathing suit and cover up it might be different So, another strike for Summer from me!! LOL!!
I told Mike last night I can not WAIT for our trip!!!! But that it's still quite a way off, and he goes 'it's only 4 months, right?' I was impressed he knew it so quickly!! And yes, 4 months, but still!!! I am excited to see how much reno's are finished, or what' s gonna be diff when we go. I have a really crazy question. Those Scrims that keep being in MK...what is the point of that anyway?

I've been keeping up with Jen's trip on Facebook....of course she went to the Haunted Mansion first!

I don't like being wet either, but the rain does keep the crowds away!

The scrims are used for buildings that are being repainted....that's what I've heard anyways!

I heard that too, but when I look at them (when we are there) I don't see how they are painting under that!!! And how the heck do they not smother!! LOL!!! Heat & paint fumes= headache!!!
Of course, they are all high tech and figure it out, but it just seems so strange, I guess it's the best way to keep little hands (or big ones) out of fresh paint!!!!

I don't think they're actually painting under there during the day. I'd imagine that they take the skrims down at night to do their painting and then put them back when they're done. I'm sure it takes quite a bit of time to get those elaborate signs, store fronts,etc fully painted and they don't want the guests to see things half painted. Just a guess!

unfortunately they do that with the husbands/dads looking stupid in all shows and movies now. It's sad, but most people don't have a problem with it--it does bother me too. It's such a loss of respect.

We saw Brave on Friday. I liked a lot of it, but as my DH pointed out, parts of the storyline seemed like they copied Brother Bear too much. Even the fishing scene. I hope I'm not spoiling anything for those who haven't seen it.

All the men looked like buffoons in it I thought. Not sure why that's necessary, the whole point was to show this strong young woman, wouldn't it make sense that her father (who at one time was strong and brave too) would also be that way rather than silly?

I really liked Merida though. I thought she made a great heroine. I won't spoil the ending, but I liked the end result.
Oh, and the animation? HOLY CATS! The scenery was so well done, it looked real to me!! (and I've seen Scotland) - just beautiful.

Great deal on SoG! I used to love it when we could stay there. Now we have no military left in the family.

update on our Nov trip...DS16 has decided he DEFINITELY doesn't want to go on this trip. We have been back and forth if he was going for a couple of months-we booked it without him then he changed his mind, so I added him. Now he wants out again So,..I took him off yesterday--he does not want to miss a week of school again, especially with no guarantee that any of the new stuff will be open until after Tday....we already have a couple of friends/family that he will be spending the night with ....all that too say...we are switching to the WL!! We are very excited! I have us booked in a Courtyard view right now and will probably call back to request a balcony and change it to a bunk bed room. We really, really, wanted a Standard Room Club Level,,it's showing that I can get just the room(not a package) online, but the CMs say that aren't even seeing that on their screens. So...I will continue to call and see what opens up.. I am tempted to call EVERYDAY!!! LOL... I was surprised with us knowing how much slower this week of the year is that all the club levels were taken. Only thing I could think of is that they are holding some for when the fall discount becomes available. Anyone have room recommendations? We stayed there the last night of our trip 2 or3 years ago and were in a Jr. Suite. It was awesome, but $$$$$. I really liked the lounge/food options. That's part of the draw for us to be there--I will be disappointed if I can't get Club Level. Just because I know we can swing it this time and I know how good their CL is!!!

In regards to Brave....I didn't really pay attention to how the men were portrayed. I was more focused on the relationship between Merida and her mother. I think all teenage girls should see this movie! I know that me and my sisters always gave my mom a hard time, didn't want to listen to her, etc. I was so happy that I saw this movie with Madison. It was just nice to see a Disney princess that actually HAD a mother! I know that Tiana's mom was in Princess and the Frog, but she wasn't really a princess. With Rapunzel, her parents weren't really in the movie much. But, look back at Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Snow White, Cinderella....no moms!!!

I never saw Brother Bear, so this whole story line was new to me. The animation was just amazing and took my breath away. And I too LOVED Merida when she was little....what a little doll!

Shawna- I've never stayed at WL so I'm no help there at all. It's on my wish list though!

Shawna-we stayed in a regular courtyard view room. I requested in er courtyard and the view was spectacular. I'll see if I can find a picture for you

In regards to Brave. Rylan asked to see it so we went on Saturday. We got mid way through the movie and he asked to leave I don't think he realized it was a "princess" movie. Never got to see the end

A lot of people have noticed and mentioned that parts of the film reminded them of Brother Bear. I noticed as well and completely agree with you about the entire movie, especially regarding the scenery.

Wendy - congrats on your mini trip! That's a great price for a room!

Mindy - BEAUTIFUL shots!!!!

We have not seen Brave yet - the downside to having a boy is most of the time I have to wait for the movie to come out on DVD to see anything remotely related to princesses!

We are in the middle of a heat wave - 104 today, 102 tomorrow and 90s for the next week. For the entire month of June we had less than a half inch of rain to go on record for the driest June and we're under a red flag warning today (in the midwest....yuck). We're under a burn ban, and I highly anticipate an emergency order banning fireworks. Some of the larger neighboring communties have already done so. It is so dry. Hope everyone else is staying cool.....

Less than 4 months until our trip....I can't wait. Still need to book airfare, but I'm waiting until I know something more concrete with the FD rumors. If what I'm seeing is true, FD will start the day after Ihad planned on arriving. We can do a room-only for one night and do the MNSSHP, or go the next day. We're using my SW rewards for our flights, so we'll only have to pay minimally for the flight (YEAH!).
