LOL Well it is hard not to go back because of the family we have in Florida. We HAVE to go visit the mouse too!

I don't see us heading back to WDW until the kids are a quite a bit older so for us it will probably be about 5 years and we have a nice bit of time to spend there too. Like you said Disneyland is not a hard trip to make so that is awesome!

yah, I don't think Tim will be waiting for two years...I have a feeling they'll be there for the prince's first birthday celebration!

and I love having the extra years inbetween WDW it always seems new to us that way even if there aren't any changes!
we have been to DLR 30+ times since we lived in CA for 7 years and would go for weekend trips quite a lot... but WDW is always a more planned out trip mostly do to the flight and having so much more to see and do!

Hey, do you plan on coming up to Seattle this summer? we would love to meet up with you if you do!

Lisa, Hijacking your thread to talk to Tim!

Juliana will have a BALL!!!! We have Victory Junction here in NC (part of the same Hole in the Wall Gang Camp)...David has been three times for Neurology week and LOVES IT!!!!!! They are amazing! This is his last year to be eligible age wise to go and he is SO WORRIED he will not be allowed, because they will have too many applicants and not enough counselors (that happened to him two years ago). Last year he was wait listed but got in because Mama puts the application in on the very first day it opens up. Some good vibes for David to be able to go one more time would be SO appreciated! Rachel went to sibling camp at VJGC three years ago...she is now eligible for their asthma camp (she developed asthma after having Mono last February...I am a nurse and never had even HEARD of that complication)! Lisa of course will go to Cardiac Camp... WHEN she is old enough, Mama isn't quite ready for that!

I really do think that GKTW is not to be missed! (Judy, I posted something on your thread about staying longer... once you get dates, I will halp you find a place if you'd like)
YES, PLEASE!!!! THANK YOU TIM!!!!
I know Juliana really loved the tea party but I really have to think hard if the $250+ was worth it. I know she really had a great time at the tea. There is the Alice tea which is around $50 or so. There are pics here on the DIS and it looks really fun for the girls.
I would NEVER actually be able to do it...besides, Rachel really IS too old...not in her eyes, but in the eyes of everyone else...Rachel and Lisa were able to attend the Alice Tea back in 2007 (That wonderful Disney Visa and its points). They had an amazing time, my only complaint was they overbooked and had to move Alice (She was sitting with Rachel and Lisa) to make room for three more girls...they pulled up a chair for Alice by the Mad Hatter, but Rachel said she stood up for the most part after that...Lisa had been so excited to sit with Alice, but they STILL had a grand time!


Lisa, we will definitely chat tomorrow, I just wanted to tell you again how very Thankful I am for our new found friendship and delighted to know you! Praying that this trip is ALL that you have dreamed and planned it would be! You are an EXCELLENT Mommy. I hope this trip finds you and Megan healing and bonding in a way that you never have before! God Bless you sweet friend!!

Tim,
I totally understand if you can't come in, but just wanted to let you know since we will be so close....
we are going 7/7 - 7/19 to NYC
7/7 - 7/10 in Long Island visiting Jim's boss and his family...also meeting one of the other families of one of the men who died that was with Jim, so that part of our trip has a lot of healing for us all!
7/10 - 7/13 in NJ visiting friends (we lived there 10/00 - 12/01)
7/13 - 7/19 in NYC have a DIS meet planned for Saturday with a bunch of ladies from the scrapbook forum and also a tenitive meet up with the Gengel family who lost their DD Brit in Haiti...we are helping them with their orphanage there in Haiti.

Petals,
I know 3-4 years seems like a long time, but in a way it always seems new to us this way...but we might get back sooner, we do want to see the new Fantasyland done!

Judy,
my sweet friend, you are always so kind and caring to everyone even with so much going on in your life.
I will call you in the morning and no problem highjacking my thread to talk to Tim, whatever I need to do to help make this trip happen and be happy, magical and fun I will do!!!

I saw you post on the Official March thread today. I'm hopping on board, very late. Will read through all the posts and hopefully catch up! From what I read so far it sounds like you have an awesome trip planned.

Sending good thoughts, prayers and pixie dust, for continued healing and an awesome mother daughter birthday bash and vacation!
