Our Introductions


Welcome Everyone!!!!!!! As of today, we are now officially 100 days out from our trip-let the planning begin!!!!!

First, I would like to introduce the Cast Members of this trip:

Janine (Myself)


I love all things Disney- if I could move there, I would!!!!!

Favorite Park: Magic Kingdom
Favorite Rides: Splash Mountain, Peter Pan's Flight, POTC, Haunted Mansion,EE
Favorite Character: Cinderella

Paul (DBF)


Loves all things Disney as well!!! Score lucky me

Favorite Park: Magic Kingdom but LOVES Epcot as Well
Favorite Rides: Mission Space, Peter Pan's Flight, Haunted Mansion, POTC,Soarin'
Favorite Character: Figment

Austin (DS)


Also loves all things Disney. In fact, I just recently moved into a new house over the summer, and we did a Toy Story theme for his bedroom. It cost me a FORTUNE in paint because we bought the lime green "Alien Green" Disney paint from Home Depot. It looks great, I'll have to post pics some time.

Favorite Park: Was 2 1/2 the last time I brought him, but I would say Magic Kingdom
Favorite Rides: Loved Splash Mountain
Favorite Character: Buzz Lightyear

Here is a nice "Family" shot of us in September at Hawk Mountain in PA.


There you have it!!!!!! Stay tuned for our plans!!!!!!!

Our Plans!!!!!!


Good evening everyone!!!!!

I promised to share our vacation plans, so here they are:

Dates: May 9th-15th
Where: Disney's Pop Century Resort
With: 6 day MYW passes with Park Hoppers/ QSDP

We have already booked and purchased our airline tickets !!!!

Here is the Countdown Calendar we made yesterday. 100 days !!!



By the way, Paul and I were talking tonight about how cute the Countdown Calendar is, and how I don't want to ruin the Mickey heads by "X'ing" them out. So he came up with the idea to color in a small Mickey head in the right ear of each Mickey head instead!!!

A few weeks ago, right before we booked our trip, I decided it was time to do our first Disney Themed night. The theme was "Pop Century". It wasn't too elaborate, but it still had that "Disney feel" to it. And what do we do fellow Disers when we can't be at Disney? WE BRING DISNEY TO US!!!!!!!!!!!

Theme: Pop Century
Food: I tried to create one of the "Mom's Night Out" meals from Everything Pop food court. We had Shake N Bake BBq Chicken (its delicious, and a favorite of Austin and Paul.), Mashed Potatoes, and Corn.
Dessert: Tie-Dyed Cake (Paul and Austin do not like cheesecake so I had to improvise a little-it turned out great though!!!!).

Here are some pictures:

The Table


Place Setting


Balloons


My Rendition of "Mom's Night Out"


Centerpiece (Pop Century Resort Refillable mug, with the brand new lanyards I bought, and the balloons were tied to this.)


Our DELICIOUS Tie-Dyed Cake

Yum


Yum


and YUM!!!!!


I did make a few shirts, and let everyone pick out their designs, but they came out awful. I have made better ones since then that I will post one of these days.

Wow- I am very tired!!!! I hope you enjoyed tonight's post. Sweet Disney Dreams to all!!!!!

I love love love the idea of doing theme nights before your vacation, to cute. I may have to do that for our next trip. It's almost like your starting your vacation already.

Cake does look yummy

Oh, your Pop day looked really cute! Where did you get the Mickey plate? I'd love to have some of those. I know you are really busy, but I would love to get a pm or email from you so we can talk.

yay another May traveller Unfortunately you arrive when we leave Oh well, I will still enjoy following along.

I LOVED your pop century theme night DD thinks we should do some theme nights so I guess we'll have to brainstorm some ideas for it.

Love your countdown too! We are heading out to pick up some Mickey Heads for ours tonight

Hi! I'm another May DISer, who came over to read about the May plans of others.

Your POP night looks fun! I've never stayed there, but it looks like a fun resort.

I put double-sided magnetic tape on my Mickey heads, so we just take them off the fridge as we count down the days. (Recycle, Reuse! )

Can't wait to hear more!

Thanks !!!!! The theme nights are really fun-they have really cute ideas on these boards to theme your night to practically anything Disney. It really gives you something to look forward to. We plan on doing a few more before our trip so stay tuned!!!!

The cake was very good, and surprisingly easy.

Thanks Ann! The Mickey plates are actually a set of four (a blue, red, green, and orange one, and I think they are Melamine)- I picked them up at the Disney Store over the summer. I will definitely pm you!!!!!

Thanks! I have stayed at Pop once before. It is really bright and has that "Disney feel". I love the idea of using the magnetic tape for the Mickey heads- I wish I would have thought of that!!!
