trying to keep up for now!

I didn't realize when your trip dates were! We checked into Pop the very next day. Sounds like you're off to nice, if tiring, start!

So excited you started your TR! Looking forward to seeing Katie's dresses. I kick myself for not getting a picture of you and Katie while waiting in line for the Dwarfs.

Well, I didn't feel like I did that great on Dumbo this trip either. I guess partly because the Fantasyland reconstruction really had everything looking....... shall we say......... not as pretty as I like. For me it was the scrims on the carousel. I was looking forward to seeing over the construction wall, but thought I might get a couple pretty pictures of the view from Dumbo facing the castle. But those scrims foiled my attempts. It will definitely be interesting to try Dumbo from its new location next year!

So sad, Jenn was supposed to eat that in our trip in Oct in 10' but since she moved over to the CBR last minute I had to cut that item form our scavenger hunt. I guess since it has cake in it I shall never get to partake in all its glory.

Off to a great start!

can't wait to read more. I wonder when Jenn will start ours? Or if we will even have one? I suppose I have to send her photos for her to start? oops ::hide sin corner::
I just have to say......... I'm terrible about taking food photos. I just never think to do it. Maybe I'm just in too big a hurry to dig in!

I do hope you guys decide to do a trip report. I would really enjoy comparing our park experiences. Not to mention seeing the photography from both of you! Which cameras did you end up traveling with?

That would be so cool. I really do want to get back to MNSSHP, but doubt it will happen this year. I don't know if Timmy will be running Cross Country, but if he is, I can't take a chance on missing any of his last season. And I suppose if we're going back I'd like to improve my odds of seeing the new Fantasyland. I hope they release some more definitive dates soon.

So what building were you in? How long did you stay?

Hmmm.... not sure if I'll get to much princess action in 3 weeks. Remember, my husband was along the first few days. He's not a big character hunter so we tried to keep that for after he left. I'll do my best though!

I'm glad you're here!

Howdy! I'm glad you found us. But you have to promise not to rub in my face just how many trips you have coming up with those annual passes. You haven't been in at least a few weeks, so aren't you overdue?????

Thanks Mike! Drew likes Disney. He likes it a lot. He just doesn't get as fanatical about it as Katie and I do. I don't think he understands why anyone would stay for more than 3 or 4 days. And he doesn't care to hunt characters and watch parades and fireworks they way Katie and I do. We like rides but love the magical show parts of Disney. Drew loves the rides and is ok with fireworks and shows, but would rather be doing more rides. I think he really enjoyed his visit there this year. Well, except for the blisters on his feet.........

I'm in! I love reading about your trips and my daughter loves looking at the photos of your daughter in her beautiful dresses with the princesses. She also commented today that she likes Katie's shoes she was wearing at the airport. Can't wait to follow along!

Hello Janet!

I'm hoping to do a better job of keeping up this time around.

Great start so far. DH doesn't like to hunt character either and now he has Danielle on his side. We're bring my niece in Feb and she's never been, I'm hoping DH will be a little more flexible since it's her first trip.

I'm subbing in also.

For our first trip with DD in 2009 you made her an Ariel dress....which inspired me to break out my dusty machine and now I make her outfits for everyday of the trip and then some. Can't wait to see what you made for this trip. I'm in the planning stages for our trip in June.

Erika

Oh, I'm so happy you have another trip report! I followed along on your last report but then stopped reading when you finished your trip. Now, I'm so bummed to realize that it morphed into a pre-trip report and I missed it. But, at least this report will all be new news to me.

I do have to tell you that after reading your last report that you totally inspired me to make my first dress for my daughter. I made her an Alice dress. It was my first piece of clothing ever! She wore it to 1900 Park Fare in Sept and we are breaking it out next week for our first trip to Disneyland. I will try to find a picture to post. It is not even close to your beautiful masterpieces but I was thrilled to be able to make something for my daughter. Thank you for the inspiration! I might try a Belle dress next....maybe..... But, after entertaining our daughter for 8 weekends straight while I made the Alice dress, my husband has encouraged me to visit you on eBay.

Yay! I'm so glad you are doing another TR! I know this is going to be good.

I'm so glad to hear that your husband could make it for part of the trip. Even if he doesn't love Disney, he'll be glad he had that time with Katie when she is all grown up. Sorry your boys don't like it though. Maybe they will come to their senses one day when they are older!

I can't believe Katie's school requires her to be there until 2:45 to be counted present?!?! Our schools around here allow you to check out at 11:30. 2:45 seems really late! What time does she normally get out of school? Around here the school day ends at 2:30.

I can't wait to see all your gorgeous pictures from this trip!!!
