Ahhhh!!!! I can't believe it's over!!!! :-( but I am so incredibly happy for you to be doing the CP! Wow 93 days!? That's incredible! You should totally do a live trip report or something to let us know how it goes!! Guess I have to join tumblr huh? :-)

I'm so excited to read your Halloween trip, but it is very sad to see this one coming to an end. It was an awesome TR! :-)

Oh my God! What a perfect way to end a trip report! This trip report made me ready to take on Disney at Christmas on December 4th! Again, one of your best trip reports EVER!

Hi Jess! I've been a lurker on your report and am finally getting around to posting. I remember seeing your post about interviewing for the CP...how exciting that you were accepted! My sister is also going to be doing the Spring Advantage program in merchandise. She did the program last fall and loved it. Maybe you guys will meet each other when you're down there.

Anyways, I loved all of the holiday posts. The holidays are one of my favorite times to go.
I *HEART* WALT DISNEY WORLD!! been there, done that, GOING BACK!

So sad it's over, but there's a new one to read and even more exciting is that your CP is under 100 days away :D.

I didn't post much in this TR, but I definitely followed along! It was one of the TR I was reading the most when I was in lurker mode all summer, seeing as I was too busy with the baby to post comments. I LOVED reading about your trip and want to go to Disney around Christmas time so bad. Thank you for sharing your wonderful trip!

I have read all your trip reports and have loved every single one! I'm so excited for you that you were accepted for the college program. What a fantastic and awesome experience it will be. We will be down in Disney right when you are starting! Maybe we will get to see you! It will be DD's first trip and I hope she turns out to be as big a fan of Disney as you are

Another trip report all done BUT! You always have a new one starting, so YAY!

The last mornings of a trip are awful. Leaving Disney World is seriously depressing, isn't it? At least you were able to have a last minute fix at breakfast at Chef Mickey's!

Jonathan's face on the ME to the airport is priceless. He's so sad

Well that was my Sunday!

Hi Jess

I'm normally a lurker from the Disboards but had to comment on this Trip Report ... I have spent ALL day reading it from beginning to end and have thoroughly enjoyed every part of it .

We're hoping to book up a last minute Nov/Dec 2012 trip so seeing the Christmas decorations was really exciting. I'm now subscribing to your next Trip Report and I'm going to love reading all about your DCP experience.

We've been to WDW numerous times as a couple (me and DH) but more recently have enjoyed introducing our baby boy to all things Disney. Sadly we've never stayed on site but maybe one day ... !

I HATE the DME ride BACK to OIA-I call it The Sad Bus!

I always just sit there with a sad Deer Face in a semi-comatose state!
I'm glad we're not the only one who that has happened to! It's a little confusing!
I know, it's the saddest bus ride of them all!

I am totally planning on printing out your tips for our December trip. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this incredible trip report!

So I'm totally sad that it's over, but I am so grateful that you have another TR in progress! You are awesome!!!

I can't wait to hear about your DCP! I'll have to live vicariously through you, haha!

Good luck with this semester and getting ready for your future!
Haha it really is! I am going to feel so empty and along without it! Good thing I have a whole new one to write. This trip reports never end and that is NOT a bad thing!

Oh awesome, awesome! I'm glad those tips will be put to good use!

Thank you so much!

I have the same experience with characters sometimes. Nothing memorable or anything.

Awww leaving Disney ):

I LOVED this TR, Jess! It was so cool reading about your Disney Christmas and New Years! One of the best TRs I have ever read (:
They are SO good!

Yeah.. but it's always fun to meet them no matter what!

So sad!

Thank you so much! That means a lot to me! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

You can sign up for their rewards card too and earn free nights to keep your car if you fly home ever during your DCP.
Ahh thank you so much! I will keep that in mind and we will look into it!

I can't wait to read about your October trip, or as I like to call it, "The trip where you found out your Disney dreams are coming true."

I think it's great that you have such a great relationship with your family, it is so apparent in all of your reporting!

And BOO on non-Disney food, life is not fair if there are no Mickey Waffles, just sayin...
Hahaha aww that's beautiful! Thank you so much! 19 DAYS IS SO SOON! And I'm sure you'll be able to book another one soon!

SERIOUSLY that is what that trip was! I can't wait to write about it!

Aww I really do! Thank so you much - I'm glad you can tell!

Haha but really!

You started it right before we booked our first trip as DVC members and it led to me reading all of your reports and subscribing to you, Kristen, and Joni's reports and reading them religiously! I follow you on Twitter and Instagram too. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful trips and love for all things Disney! We are arriving for our next trip two days after you start DCP so if we happen to see you I will definitely say hi! They are very lucky to have you and you will make an awesome concierge CM! Just thought I would say thank you and good luck!

Aww thank you so much for posting! I'm glad the both of you enjoy the reports and that this one was fun to read!

That's SO wonderful that you read all of my reports as well as my friends! Thank you for dedicating the time to us - we really appreciate it!

I'm glad you follow on instagram and twitter too because that's a great way to do live updates!

You're so welcome - I'm glad you enjoy them! Yes, if you see me definitely say hi! That would be so cool to meet you!

Thank you so much for your kind words! And you are very welcome!

Or the Yacht Club. AHHHH too many resorts to choose from! )

And CONGRATULATIONS on getting accepted to the DCP! You are going to have such a wonderful time!

Going to join your October TR now, although I can't promise I'll be able to keep up and comment!
I'm glad that you're still here! You're very welcome, I'm glad you enjoyed them! Hopefully you will get to take a Christmas trip someday - it really was BEYOND magical!

Thank you so much! I can't even wait!

Woohoo! That's okay - if you feel like reading it it will always be there for you to catch up on!

And we wher just as lucky to go through the employee line at the airport last december. Appearently, they are more than 1 train and i just go the way we always go. We almost missed our fight. They called us over the intercom as soon as we got off the 2nd train.. Well congrats again!
Aww thank you so much for everything! What role were you when you did your DCP? I most definitely will - I'm so excited! Ahh good thing that all worked out at the airport! Thank you!
