We really enjoyed MSEP in January - it was a nice change from Spectro.
Agreed. I like Spectro, but I don't love it the way I love the MSEP.

We tried the phone but it wasn't working. I will have to try again. Love all of the tiny hidden details that make WDW so amazing!
Wasn't working! Bummer. I hope you'll get to hear it next time.

What a great first day!!! Lots of fun and memories both new and old!

I too am a lover of purple cotton candy. One of our movie theaters sells it here and I always get that as my snack when we go. I never did get to try Disney's but I will make sure I will the next time I go.

I've been looking and I don't think it's on my laptop. I'm going to have to check our desktop computer downstairs.

Yes! You nver know when someone may gift you with a sample of cotton candy! Talk about pixie dust. I can't eat a whole bag by any stretch so that sample was just perfect.

Love the phone story.

For Those Who Are Curious...

and for those who are new to my trip reports, let me preface this mega post by saying that MJS and I bought a house this year.

Actually, in some ways, I like to think that my mother gave me this house. Because it was a portion of my inheritance money that I used as a down payment. And when we first looked at it, even though it was an overwhelming amount of work that needed to be done, there were little signs throughout that Mom approved.

And then I had a dream about her and my children playing in the yard, and that pretty much cinched it for me.

It was a LONG process, and it's an even longer story. Suffice it to say it's our first house, it's a major fixer upper, and we've been in the process of doing all that work. Well, I design, MJS does the work. I'm the queen of unpacking, he's reno (as in renovation) man.

So for you who would like to know, here are the fruits of our labors. And I promise, this is Disney related.

There's lots of little Disney things throughout my house. Let's see how many you can spot.

Living Room - Before


After -




Dining Room - Before


After-


Kitchen - Before




After -






Nemo's Room - Before


After -


Squirt's Room - After (Before shot is MIA!)


Master Bedroom - Before


After -




Bathroom - Before






After -










So, when I go a little bit in between updates, now you know why!




Next Chapter

Hi Kat,

I have been absent from the DIS since losing my mom. Something about that world going on thing made it really difficult to put myself into this place. It was like accepting that I could go on too. But just recently I've been thinking more and more about it. I finally logged back in today and what did I see right on top but a TR from You! It was a sign that I'm meant to come back, I think.

I've been to Disney twice this year and I've had a lot of other changes in my life so I'm going to think about starting a trip report of my own. Big step.

Thanks for putting yourself out there. You make a difference.

My dear, sweet friend. I understand. And I am so happy to see you back, now that you feel "ready." It takes time. As you know. Anything I can say, I'm sure you've already thought.

And thank you so much for saying that I make a difference, because really, this isn't just meant to be an entertaining jaunt into the World with my family. I hope it means something, and I know it does to you.

Thanks, LL!!! When I put all the pictures together like that, I can't quite believe it myself.

Ooo, building one brand new sounds so lovely. Picking where everything goes, your own floor plans...

However, I've heard that process can be just as much of a nightmare, so I guess I shouldn't think the grass is always greener.

Thanks for the compliments.

What wonderful kindness bestowed on your during your last minute arrival to the parade. It's so wonderful to experience the kindness of total strangers.

Your house renovations are quite impressive. That is a huge amount of work so congrats for accomplishing it so quickly and doing such an awesome job. I especially love the kitchen! I love the white cabinets.

Totally forgot to mention that we used a lot of Disney paint!

Nemo's room is Buzz Blaster Blue.

Squirt's room is Mickey Sailor.

The kitchen cabinets are New Day Dew.

I think that's it.
