I was so surprised when I came home and he had it all set it up, really a nice thing to come home to When it comes to the Pirates movies, we both loved the first one, didnt really love the 2nd or 3rd, and loved this one again. I know everyone has their favorites

Love the pirates theme. Looks like a lot of fun. I would have gone for real rum over the wine though.

I'm glad you liked the new movie. I haven't had a chance to see it yet, but I hope we can get to the theater to see it sometime while it is still there.

Pirates night sounds like so much fun! Your place mats were hilarious. I wish I had thought of something fun like that do for the newest movie. I went with my DF and younger brother to the midnight premiere, and they were both surprsied that I'd only worn my PotC tshirt I got at Disney. They expected me to go a litte overboard.

Hi! I've been reading your PTR, but at work and usually haven't had time to actually let you know I'm following along. We'll be at Disney around the same time! We're staying off-site though.

I love the fact you are doing theme Disney movie nights, if I could only convince my BF to do that with me! You are so lucky!

I'm glad to hear you liked the new PotC movie. I loved the first, hated the second, and mildly disliked the third. I haven't seen the fourth yet, but I was hoping it would be better.

The Pirate theme night looks really cool. Those place mats are great.

Another fun theme night!

I loved POTC 4...so much that I'd see it again in the theater, and I NEVER do that! It was just SO good! I was happy to see that it was basically all about Jack, finally! And the beginning scene was just so great, him with the King...and the mermaids!!

I won't say anymore, in case some people haven't seen it, but it was SO good!

The pirate placemats rock! That's it, I'm decorating my house that way. I'm sure my wife will approve.

I am late to this party, but you had me at "Do they Serve Wine on the Magical Express?" They should! It was odd for us to walk on a coach bus and not have beer and wine available, as we are usually in Mexico on vacation. Happy planning!

The theater we went to see the new pirates movie in has where you can eat and drink during the movie...they were walking around with rum drinks in coconuts...if those didn't cost $10+ we would have went for it

I always threaten that I am going to dress up silly for Pirates or Harry Potter or other similar movies, but then I remember I have to sit through a long movie in whatever I choose to wear

I am a pretty lucky girl but shhh don't let him catch on

I am glad to have you following along!!I get on the disboards a lot at work during my lunch break...you guys are going to be there pretty much the exact same time! How fun I hope we bump into each other!!

Your opinions of the first 3 match mine...so I think you will be happy with the fourth one I do get a little antsy during the long movies like Pirates, but I did good this time!

I really loved the opening of the movie too..I knew after that beginning I was going to like this one much more than the last couple!! Johnny Depp just does such a great job playing that role and it was great to see him be the focus again!

We made sure to stay after the credits, there was a very short little scene at the very end...DBF wasn't impressed, but I was glad we stayed to see it

I think I may have to leave him in charge of theme nights from now on

It was the same way when I went to Mexico...even the tours I took they gave us a shot of tequila on the ride home!

So we took a week off from theme nights, Tim is in VA beach for work training and before he left we had a fun filled weekend in Williamsburg that left us exhausted!

I met a fellow runner on the disboards before the wine and dine half marathon in Disney World last year...and we got to meet up at the race We have kept in contact since then and I let her talk me into doing another half marathon in Williamsburg, VA. I was in for the medal (my bling) since it was another Inaugural half marathon, I would have two Inaugural half marathon medals...doesn't take much to convince me obviously

We stayed with her family in a 2 bedroom condo, they were so fun to spend the weekend with and I got to learn a little bit about DVC and was jealous!! We went to Busch Gardens with free tickets on Saturday...it was HOT and CROWDED...we walked around and gave up. They wanted me to put my tiny backpack (very tiny, only a wallet and phone in it) in a locker...I didn't bother paying $1+ for a locker just to ride one ride...I said to Tim "Disney wouldn't make me do that"

Here we are before the race,
Her name is Shannon as well and she of course beat me, I am a slow poke!




Some of my friends from Richmond came to do the race as well



If you can see the people in the background have "W.I.S.H" shirts on...a disboards group...I saw a lot of Disney race shirts and Disboard shirts...that was pretty cool to see!!

Let me give everyone a piece of advice - don't do a long race when you haven't been training much...I had trained for my first half marathon and didn't do much for this one I felt after, but I beat my time from my last one




On a more trip related note:

We still need to purchase MNSSHP tickets...we were trying to decide whether to have them mailed to us and have one more thing to remember to bring vs. just having them waiting at will call for us

We also decided to pre purchase the Photopass CD...Tim has never really used the photopass photographers before, I love them!

Also Tim's mom gave us a Piggy Bank to put some money aside for our trip...so I decided to convince Tim to put $1 in a day with me...I said "we feed the pig now...he will feed us later" so we are going to use the money we save towards our food at WDW

Wow on doing a half marathon without much training and how cool that you beat your last time!

Yay on going to Busch Gardens and purchasing the PhotoPass CD! I love the Piggy Bank idea.

I loved Busch Gardens in Williamsburg when I was a kid, I think we went there just as many times as we went to Disney World!

Yay for running another race, and beating your time! I don't know how you do it! I'm having such a hard time with the 2nd week of Couch to 5K...I really think I might have to repeat the 2nd week.

When I went to MVMCP, the first year I ordered the tickets and had them mailed to us, and the whole time during the trip I was paranoid that I'd lose them, or forget them. The 2nd year I opted to pick them up at will call, which was so nice! You can get them at any will call at any park, whenever you want! As much as I want Mickey mail, I think when I order mine, I'll use will call again. It's just one less thing to forget, you know?

Love the piggy bank! Brandon and I are doing something similar with our spare change, when it gets close to our trip I'm going to cash it in for a gift card and use it at Food and Wine!
