Oh no! Such a late night before bed and time change too! Hope you wake up in time for the orientation!
Thank you Gail The daylight change was really hard. If I had known the day we were to leave was daylight savings..I would of left on the 14th. Some reason the calendar I was using didn't show it.

Thank you Kathleen It was a long day. This is why I wanted to try a red eye so we could have our first day to enjoy GKTW, but I was out voted on it. The kids were afraid to fly at night.

Thank you Josh. I'm loving your TR. The boys just melt my heart. I cried the day I heard Jett passed away. I just love John Travolta. Kylee had 20 seizures when she was a baby and nothing since, but we were told that it can show it's ugly butt anytime...especially she has some brain involvement.

Thank you Judy. I'm hoping to have some more report tonight. Kyra is taking over my computer right now doing a report. I'm on my laptop right now that doesn't have my pictures on it.

We stayed up till 12-1am almost everynight and got up between 7-7:30am most mornings. Can you say exhaustion? That's why a couple of parks we switched so we can sleep in till at least 8:30.

Day 2... Disney Hollywood Studios

I left off that we went to bed at midnight, but before I went to bed I set the alarm for 7:30am. Scott had to be at the 9am orientation and I wanted to take Steven and Kylee around the village and to see Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Kyra woke us up at 8:34am! Scott and I both jump up. I looked at the alarm clock and it was set for pm. I didn't even notice this when I set the clock. For those going on a trip...make sure the clocks are set right.
Scott jumped up and hurried and got dressed. Thankfully he didn't need to shave this morning. He left the Villa at 8:50. I never seen him get dressed so fast. My plans though were shot. I can't get dressed that fast..plus all meds that I need too do. We all got done at 9:35(fast for me) and I still didn't hear from Scott ,so we started to walk to the gingerbread house for breakfast. The Gingerbread house closes at 10, so we had to hurry. The only thing I didn't like that GKTW changed was we all had to go in to have breakfast or dinner at the same time or the person without you don't get to eat. You get a card that they swipe and once it's swipe..the other person can't use it. We had just started walking and Scott called to say he was done. I told him that we had left and we would be there in a few. We get almost there and a golf cart volunteer stopped to give us a ride. We literally had about 50 yards left. Why couldn't we of gotten a ride like 10 min prior. We get to the Gingerbread house at 9:50..just in time for some breakfast.

The girls in line to get some yummy food.



Our first breakfast at GKTW. I loved the biscuit and gray and the Strawberry waffles.



After breakfast we all piled in the van and head to DHS. I was hoping we weren't too late to sign Steven up for the Jedi Training. This is what we saw going to DHS..



Then this... opps..sign got cut off. I told Scott to back up so I can get it all in, but the other cars in back of us didn't move



I think it was about 11am when we finally saw this..



We hurried over to the Jedi Training Academy to see if Steven can do this. On our way over we stopped for a second to watch the Disney Channel Rocks.



We got to the Jedi Training and they were mobbed. I really didn't think we would get Steven in. One of the CM saw us and we asked if their was anymore spaces and he told us they had one spot left at 4:20 show.. Perfect. Now I can relax and enjoy the rest of the day.
We started walking to see what we come to first. We see the backlot( i think that's what it's called)





Then I see the restaurant I wanted to go to. After seeing Tim's TR and seeing pictures of the yummy food, but they were all booked for this night.



Our first ride was this..



They got us right on...matter of fact, we were the only ones on this tram. Kind of cool. Here are some scenes from the tour.















This was Walt Disney's airplane



After the ride we were left off at where the have some characters wearing costumes. We didn't have a lot of time to see everything as we were off to see the Lights , Motor, Action show.

Continued in next post...

Day 2 continued..

My last post we had just gotten off the Backlot Tour and was heading to the Lights, Motor, Action show, but first I got this picture.



We finally get over to here..



This is an awesome show. This was on our must do list.

The crew waiting for the show to start.



Pictures from the show





This was Kylee most of the show

















After the show we went to go see Mike and Sully. One of my favorite characters. Unfortunately Sully wasn't there.



After seeing Mike..we were all thirsty, so we went to get some drinks.



We were finally refreshed so it was time to go on Toy Story Mania.







Kyra took a picture of me and my awesome bag. (thank you Wendy)









My score is in red and Steven is in blue.
