Ooooh! Already shopping with MeMom!! I'll definintely need a new mug and some 40th anniversary merchandise on the next trip!! I've only had one pair of classic mouse ears myself! Well, I have Minnie doodle-boppers and the Santa hat but not classic ears! That pizza looks pretty good too...

to the crowds at ME! I hope you guys didn't wait TOO long there. I always find that I'm sweating by the time we make it down there and over from the other side of MCO

I'm loving the 40th anniversary stuff! I totally think I'm going to get those ears and a new pink lid mug is definitely on the list as well.

It really was weird to see the picture of the drained Hippy Dippy Pool! But, all the better for you to enjoy now in July

Interested to hear this bathroom story that I heard a bit of on FB...

I really like the blue one the best, I was thinking Pink for Jamie The yellow is actually growing on me......I agree with you though, it would be nice to have some more choices!

I love the 40th anniversary merchandise, all of it is so cute! I wonder what they're going to design in 10 more years, that stuff is bound to be awesome!

And taking pictures of napkins is totally acceptable. Particularly Disney napkins. I like that design. Very festive.

Me too - I look fondly at my resort specific mugs but I am excited about the new ones.

The format is very different from the DIS, so if you listen to all of them, you can get Disney just about any day you want to in any form you like.
Yes I was at the treehouse meet. Maroo dragged me. Big crowd in the treehouse- we were a little worried about that thing staying up.
I really need to check that out more since I went but have not had the time.

The 5K this year is through AK. I hope I can do that AND make park opening at MK. My knee is not happy with all this activity so I am going to see the "knee guy" Thursday. Hopefully he can just help stabailize it better and deal with it. I am hoping he won't suggest surgery but if it will help and have a short down time I am game for that too.

Oh my goodness I was at the Treehouse Meet as well!!! Too bad I wasn't on the Dis then! Next time


The 40th Anniversary Merchandise - OMG I couldn't stop haha. I bought all 6 of the special Vinylmation and a mug. I wanted so much more but just kept reminding myself I'll be back in May haha


It was sooo sad to see the Hippy Dippy Pool closed My trip was very quick that weekend and we really wanted to take a few minutes to grab a drink and dip our toes in the pool. We still grabbed the drink (loveee the Pina Colava) but it just didn't taste the same without the pool being open.

So if you're looking at doing something after the morning at MK, I have a suggestion: EPCOT!!! Right now our plan is for me to wake up early and run in the 5K (I think it starts at 7am), then when I'm done with that Anna and Luke are gonna head to MK while Seth and I relax at Pop. Then we're gonna meet back at EPCOT around lunch-ish time and graze the F&W Festival, then dinner at Kouzzina's around 6:00 (although I don't know how much we'll need dinner reservations after the F&W Festival, but we're getting free dining so we might as well use it!). Then Seth and I are gonna call it an early night (saving our energy for some other later nights) and Anna and Luke will probably go back to MK for the fireworks/parade. Anyway, you know I'd love to actually spend time with you guys at Disney World! What are your dates again?

What an exciting start for Jill and Bella. I love Brooklynn's luggage tag, so grown-up to be able to write her name herself.

Your meal sounds delicious!! I'm going to have to take after you and do a themed Disney meal down here.

I love the smell of Pop chocolate chip cookies. It's mouthwatering.

I'm imagining working at Animation Suites, that would be so awesome!

I can't recall if I have seen a Pop pool emptied before this picture. I want to say I have but I'm not certain.

I know Duffy is just a way to spend more money at Disney but I find him so cute with all his little outfits. I love the new mugs, I would get one with a pink lid as well. I just send my dad a text just in case he decides to go and pick some up. Oh! the napkins are so cute too!

I was wondering the same thing, apparently I was missing out on several good Disney sites but they are now bookmarked.

Hi you guys! I'm needing a Disney fix! I'm sorry I've not been around much lately. But I'm on board now for this report. Loving the pictures and comments so far. The girls are getting so big and are totally adorable! I haven't been here much to see them, but I've been keeping an eye on them on FB.

I love this Minnie! She's so cute. I also love the new mugs. I need a pink one! I think I'll have to try to make a stop when we go pick up our oldest from college in May. We're talking about maybe trying to squeeze just 1 day in at a park. Maybe with a little we can get that to happen!

Good to see you back. I see you took the plunge and moved to PR.

I wish you luck in this next chapter of your life and hope you make it back to the mouse someday.

I'm joining in! Thank you ever so much for those photos of the construction of the new Animation value resort coming soon. I love seeing that kind of stuff. Too bad the Hippy Dippy pool was drained. Must've been pretty packed at the other pools! I see you'll be going back in July to face the unrelenting Disney heat. I'm glad to see I'm not the only crazy one I'll be back at the end of July
