I am so sad that your TR is over...all good things must come to an end though right? I still don't have to like it I felt so sad reading your last post, it's exactly how we all feel on that final day, and I do exactly what you did, this is our last this, and this is our last that....the whole day...drives Jasmine crazy

We don't have another trip scheduled until 2013 but Jasmine keeps checking online for deals

I am so happy that I got to know you thru your TR and I'm glad we'll still be able to chat on mine!

You're right, all good things must come to an end... but it sounds like your last night at MK was a good one! I still can't get over that view you had!

Angie is planning on taking her family back to WDW next October... in fact, we talked about it during our trip and how we should go together (her girls are a bit younger than mine, but they get along great!) I had originally told my girls we wouldn't go back until the Fantasyland expansion was complete... so when I asked them if they would want to go next year instead, they said NO! So I guess it's back to 2013 for us, too. Which will probably work out better... I really want to stay at a Deluxe, so this would give me 2 years to save instead of just one!

I noticed you updated your photo collage in your signature... love all the new pics!

Final Thoughts

All in all we had a fabulous trip, even with the rain storms, closures and a few missed rides. I am itching to go back already, although honestly, I'd really like to go just DH and I without the kids. I'm thinking they wouldn't go for that.

I applied for the Disney Moms Panel just for the heck of it, but didn't make it to the second round.

Here is the full finished collage for this 2011 trip

I have it printed on a plaque type thing. The videos are done and we've watched them and the photo book is sitting on the Fedex truck on it's way here this morning!!!

I put the trip summary video on Photobucket, it's about 4 minutes long if anyone is interested

We still missed quite a few things I wanted to do. LMA, Art of Animation, FoW (since it wasn't running both days we went to AK), Kali (again, down or crazy wait times), most of WS (at least got a few countries in), Snow White and Peter Pan (we didn't stop for either of those this trip and Snow White will be gone next time ), FOTLK, and Fantasmic (although I'm not upset about F!, not sure I care much).

I was very happy we at least got to a few countries in WS, Canada, UK, Mexico and Norway. Rode Maelstom (not sure why but I love that ride), saw Illuminations, loved Mickey's Philharmagic, ate at Pecos Bills, and I rode EE twice! Saw Wishes from every angle, and got to see Memories with Eric in it in person. That was the biggy, even if I only saw it once.

Thanks for following along and re-living it with me!

I just read the rest of your TR, so sad when trips end! It was a great report though, I enjoyed reading it!

We also had all of that yucky weather, but it didn't ruin our trip by any means.

I love your collage! What a great way to display your trip memories!

Well it's obviously time to start planning another trip! I loved reading along - I wish that our paths could have crossed - but I do love being facebook friends!
