By the way the Disney fairies did bring Nicole's two boys Joey and Matt gifts as well. some little cars/Princess stamp set to keep them busy on the plan along with the large amounts of coloring books, Ds, movies and whatever else you can think of getting into a carry on bag to keep 5 children busy!
we are at the airport!!!







on the plane...











to the ME....


She got better!!

Mo, you've got some gorgeous kids, in case I didnt mention that... They're even cuter awake, as opposed to dead on their feet when we met!

I'm so excited for your TR... I'm going to be looking for myself in your pics.. LOL.

On our way to the PORT ORLEANS Riverside.. ok it's not the Poly... But it was so beautiful.

While Tom and Nicole checked us in and made sure we were in a good building by the FOOD! i walked around Fulton's AWESOME general store!! this was the best store!!!















We did pay for the preferred room and we did get Building 14!!!! WOO HOO!!! i was worried about this.

i think they knew my dryer was broken at home and felt i need to hang my clothes here too...

My DH new job...

Happy isn't he?
once we checked in and chilled out in the room. we went and bought our cups! I wasn't a fan of them i thought they should have changed with the season.. Being there in November and for the Christmas party i wished for something more fall/winter themed instead of the pool side. So now that we got our barrings back it's on to EPERCOT for the Food and Wine Festival!

No that is NOT a typo my kids call it EPERCOT..

If we didn't get these kids on a ride soon we all may feel the pain.
SO we did:









Sorry these are so unfocused but the ride wouldn't stop for me to take a better picture and i could NOT see my settings on the camera...















Disclaimer: No no fish were harmed with my Flash. I did not use one
After we found that fish who could have saved himself a lot of grief had he just listened to his father in the first place...
We went to the Food and Wine festival...
The smells!!! the yummy goodness all around me. i thought Disney was heaven? Add in the food!!!!
I don't have many pictures of the food and only a few salvaged pictures. My Favorites are the Canada Soup. and where ever this guy came from... BAD picture...

couldn't get the light right. maybe this was the culprit?
this is going to be out of order... But who cares right? you Love PICTURES!!!




Ran out of space!

I LOVE how you have a lot of photos in your TR!!!

First off, I want a party bus, Escalade thingy to come pick us up!! What a cool idea.

Secondly your daughter waking up with hair all crazy is hilarious!

Thirdly, Glad you got the F! thing straightened out. I almost had a nervous breakdown getting into that show and I only have 2 kids that are much much older!

What a fun wild family, can't wait to hear more!

a little late, but joining in!

Your kids are adorable.

On one hand, you'd think it would simplify things to only have one birthday party a year for all three!! on the other hand... it's got to be a huge party!!

Lucky for you they love the Mouse and Disney has so much to choose from!! At the same time I feel your pain because Disney has TOO MUCH to choose from!!

I loved the Alice in Wonderland playing card guys!! (We're having a AiW tea party for DD's birthday in January.) Looks like you made those with a deck of cards, pipe cleaners, and construction paper?? I have to steal that!!

I think it's really cool that you took the trip with your friends and their family too. I'd love to do that, but we don't really have any friends!

Looks like your trip is off to a good start, despite a few bumps!! I can't wait to hear more!!

No the party bus wasn't back in time to pick us up (THAT must have been some party to go on that long!)
So the Co. send the Esclade instead so we lucked out!!! yay good disney pixi dust was a huge factor in our trip!
I love that picture of Meg.. I may blow it up especially when i have to deal with her and teenage-hood!!!
EXACTLY why i would NOT go to F! without the VIP seating. we walked right in without a problem no crowds... and we waited for the crowds to die down before attempting to leave!

Hey there almost-neighbor! (We were supposed to be at POFQ until the last minute switch to CBR.) Looks like we might have passed eachother in Epcot -we were wandering OUT of Epcot through England and Canada that evening when you were wandering IN. Can't say I saw you there - too busy noticing all the drunks! Which BBVD showing did you see. We were at the first one. (5:15 PM I think?)

Hello!!!
I know it was later then 5:15. was i one of your noticeable drunks??
we were walking out as illuminations was going on to beat the crowds... which of course didn't happen!!!
But i enjoy the buses and transportation/lines. I love talking to people... we had the bus laughing so hard on the way TO Epcot.. one of it was telling Nicole i was going to the DIS boards and complain about this horrible mother and her children.. I just haven't fit it in this report.. I have to some how..

SINCE SHE IS LURKING ON HERE AND NOT POSTING!!!!


What made you change your mind on POFQ??

We arrived on the 10th. We had Free Dining at POFQ from 11/13 to 11/20, but we were able to add a day of Free Dining on the 12th and get a room discount on the 10th and 11th at CBR which we couldn't get at POFQ...so we saved about $230 by switching over. I missed POFQ - but we actually liked CBR a lot, so it was worth the switch.
