OH-HOW-AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! Your room looks FANTABULOUS!!! Sorry you weren't feeling well. That happened to me back in 2007. I hate being sick at Disney and then REALLY feeling it when you get home. But glad you had an awesome room to spend your sickly-ness in! Your hubby rocks!

Our next stop was one final Musical…. Yes… Nemo: The Musical. Well, we HAD to end our time together with a show, didn’t we? Again, I took no pictures, but we enjoyed a fabulous performance.

Finally, it was hitting us that our time in Disney together was coming to an end. We decided to drown our sorrows in one last Mickey bar.

Addy was still smiles, because she got to stay a few more days


Even Shae was smiling, because who can be boo-boo face with a Mickey Bar?


Keslen gobbled his down and was ready to go on more adventures


And Tyson (who chose a cookie sandwich instead) savored every last bite


One last Mickey bar for us


And goodbye hugs for my BFF (who would be moving to Pittsburg shortly after this trip)


Yeah, that thought made the Mickey Bar happiness dissipate very quickly


After many hugs and a few tears (from the grown-ups) I finally dragged my kids away and headed back to AKL to catch our ME bus. They were both crying the whole way out of the park. I just couldn’t help myself and stopped at the gift shop on the way out. Baby Simba and Perry the Platypus plush friends decided to come home with us.

We spent a few moments taking in our AKL home




But soon found ourselves the sad victims of Disney withdrawal as we pulled onto the interstate and headed to the airport.

I didn’t really talk much about it, but during the entire trip, I was fighting off some kind of nasty…. It was like a head cold with a bit of achiness, but with a constant flow of Advil, I was able to keep it at bay.

Unfortunately on the plane, the nasty decided to rear its ugly head. The decent into Indianapolis was the most painful I’ve ever had. My ears felt like someone was stabbing them with serrated daggers! Even as we were claiming our luggage, I couldn’t hear a THING and they were throbbing with pain. This was super unfortunate, because although the trip was coming to an end, my hubby had a very big surprise waiting for us at home and I just couldn’t respond to it the way I wanted to, because I felt like death!

What was the surprise, you ask? Well, if any of you ever used to watch the TLC show called “While You Were Out”, you will completely get what happened! During the 5 days we were gone, my husband apparently had a team of people completely redoing our master bedroom. I came home and headed upstairs to the smell of paint, and the view of a new flatscreen TV in our room. As I headed in the room, I just stood there, mouth wide open. It was beautiful. Here, check it out!





And our not-so-hidden-Mickey


There are also some subtle Mickeys in other décor items… can you find them?

So that’s where my fantastic trip came to an end. And it’s a good thing my room looked so amazing, because I spent the next 2 days in that bed trying to recover from the nasty, because it hit me full on as soon as I was home, of course!

I will still have an update to share, letting you all see some of the fun the rest of the drama queens had without us. So come on back!

I wound up marrying another band member (he was two classes older than I) and we just had our first child, our daughter.

I knew Matt was a fan of Disney, but it's pretty awesome to see just how much of a fan you guys are.
Ha ha! I've run into a few folks from the 'band world' on here! Glad you found me! If you really are bored, there are links in my signature to most of our other trips... so you can get a true feeling for our addiction.. and see your former band director acting all sorts of crazy! Hope you can come along on my next TR.. I'll be posting a link soon!

What a stinker that Jessica got food poisoning! And in DISNEY WORLD no less. Glad she got better and was able to join all of you again. Love all the pictures. The "Drama Queens" in front of the castle made me laugh out loud. Great pic!

Ok, off to keep reading.........
I am terrible about going MIA on the DIS sometimes, too. Then it's so hard to catch up! Thanks for spending time with my TR today!

But the lines for characters or pirate "loot" were long for that too. However, I don't remember it being that crowded AT ALL. I wonder if they have increased the amount of tickets they sell for these events since then? What a shame!
Yeah... I don't know what it was. This was our first ticketed event, and I was NOT impressed with the huge crowd size. It will make me think long and hard about ever doing one again!

I'm so sorry for Bryan but I was about his feet picture! This has happened to me on a couple of occasions. It is SO ANNOYING!!!!

Ok, off to read more............
I know! I was laughing at the time, but he was NOT happy. He has come to terms with it, though, and can now laugh a bit!

Thanks for watching it! I thought she was pretty awesome myself.

That was the first time we had gone first thing in the morning. I don't think I'll do it any other way from now on! Lots of great animal time!

He does... he does! I still can't believe he did all that for me while he was stuck at home and I was at Disney. Doesn't seem fair, does it?!

What a great safari you had, I have never seen the lioness so active either! Loved all the pictures with your Mickey Bars, could go for one of those right now.

Your new bedroom is beautiful, love the not so hidden Mickey. I then had to look back at the other pictures to see the hidden ones. Really nice of Matt to do that while you were gone.

Fun report, thanks for taking the time to write it.
