You touring plan sounds GREAT!!!

DH and I celebrated an anniversary while at DL a few years ago. We had an awesome dinner at Napa Rose sitting at the Chef's table.

From everything I have read online, people strongly suggest riding the RSR at night. They say it is a far superior experience, so try and time fast passes for a night time ride!

What a great anniversary experience! Is it just as hard getting chefs table there as it is at V&A?

Thanks for the tip on RSR! We will definitely try to check it out at night. Do you know if they are allowing late FP return for it?

I didn't even realize you had another DL trip planned before your WDW trip. That's awesome. You are really have a run of great trips.

And Woo Hoo! for double digit dancing! My October trip is exactly three months from today. I'm pretty happy about that. But then I promised myself no more Disney trips for another year. Do you think I can make it?

Your DL plans look great. Sounds like its going to be a wonderful 4 days, except for perhaps the middle of the night barking of the dogs.

Glad to see you were able to get in for the EE.

Just so you know....though the EE opens for you guys at 7 AM, the FP machines don't actually open until 8 AM, though the early entry people are allowed to line up for them first. So, you are better off going in a getting in line for RSR and riding it, and then if you wanted to ride again later, go get in line for the FP. (I only know all this, because I'll be in with the masses coming in at 8 AM, so I need to know what to do.)

What's funny is that wouldn't you know it, we are just missing eachother by less than a week yet again. We are going to be in LA (Los Angeles not Louisiana) on our return trip the 16th - 18th, just 1 week before you. Won't this be like the 4th time we've just missed each other? (WDW Dec '09, Oct '10 and Nov '11, right? Did we also just miss for April '10 as well?)

I still think you should plan your 2013 trip for Nov 10-17. They don't need to know Paxton already turned 3! It's only a little white lie when it's just a few weeks, right? That way, you get to see all the Christmas stuff and can also catch the last weekend of F&W as well as Festival of the Masters! (OK, I'm just being selfish and want to meet you guys!)

No, Napa Rose is much much easier to get than V&A. Regarding FP return time enforcement, I would suggest asking on the DL boards. I know DL was not enforcing FP times like at WDW, but not sure if they are now that Carsland it open etc.

It was kind of a "last minute" decision. We booked a couple of weeks ago! I'm so excited that we get the opportunity to go back just the two of us and see what we missed having Paxton along. We have already done WDW solo a few times, so I'm glad we chose to go back to California and give DL a try solo this time.

I doubt you can make it!! I told myself I might be happy after all these trips in one year that it would be another year before we go again in Fall 2013 but I know I will be missing it as soon as we get back!!

Yeah, the dogs will hopefully just be an unfortunate end to a wonderful weekend.

Thanks for the tips! I had read something on the DL boards about the line for FP's being an hour long. Hopefully we can let the mania die down a little bit and go pick some up for later in the day so that we can try riding at night. I expect most of our early entry time will go towards standing in line for RSR but that is probably better than the wait times of 3+ hours in standby that I saw on the Lines app a couple days ago!

Definitely Dec 09 and Nov 11 we just missed each other. 2010 we went end of July/beginning of August for our spur of the moment trip. I had sworn off November, but DH is itching to go back for Festival of the Masters one of these days, so we just might have to tell a little white lie next year and go in November again. I guess it will depend on how much I like October. If it's worse than November last year, I could be convinced. I know what you mean though, so many near misses & we would love to meet y'all too!

Thanks. I guess I missed all the relevant threads when Cars Land first opened because we didn't think we'd be back anytime soon. I will have to do some digging over there this week.

Oh my gosh, it's sooooooo good! We love pizza in general, but the pizzas there are just the most delicious little bites from Heaven! Seriously cannot get enough of it. I wish I had time to try out the whole menu!

SO psyched about getting to see Cars Land! If I know my DH at all, which I'd hope I do after 11 years together, we will have LOTS of pictures of Cars Land.

Awesome Mail Day!!

Yesterday, I was coming out of Paxton's room for some reason (probably changing a diaper...the life of a mom) when the doorbell rang! Our doorbell never rings, so I knew it must be something from the mail that didn't fit in our mailbox. It was my version of Mickey mail, since I won't be expecting any ME tags or online check-in info for our trip.

First up was Paxton's autograph book!! I spent hours scouring the DIS boards looking for 8x8 character pages to make into a photo book. I wanted to do it on Shutterfly since their books are such great quality, but I went with Arts Cow because I had a bunch of free photo book credits. I ordered the autograph book and had them re-do the photo book I made for our Babymoon trip (I did the first one as a 6x6 not realizing how small that was so I re-ordered it as an 8x8) and got both for only the $17.98 shipping fee!


Front cover...made for me on the DIS of course!


Sample of the inside

Or if you want to view the whole thing, you can check it out HERE.

Thanks to exwdwcm for posting about the one she made for her son, otherwise I would have never thought of this as an option! Now just need to get some different colored Sharpies to have the characters sign with. I think this will be a great keepsake for DS as he gets older. The real challenge was finding enough 8x8 designs and characters that I liked, so hopefully I can either find some new and exciting ones for next year's book or come up with a totally different idea for an autograph book.

The next exciting piece of mail was one I wasn't expecting because I didn't know DH had gotten them, but it was the 2012 planning DVD (which we watched last night...nerds!), and this...


An Adventures by Disney brochure!! I have long been obsessed with the idea of traveling to Italy, and after listening to the DIS Unplugged podcast about their Viva Italia trip, I finally sat DH down and asked when the heck could I plan on us going to Italy?! Could I plan on it for sometime soon or was I looking at a long wait until our kids were grown or what? Well, finally, we came up with what we think will be the perfect time. So we are taking the Viva Italia trip in Fall of 2014! Talk about extended planning, right? (I basically have our next 5 vacations over the next 2 years planned out ) SUCH a long way away, but I couldn't be more excited!! Next year we will sneak in one more trip to WDW while DS is still free, and then the next year, we will have just me and DH taking the ABD trip while DS stays home with Nonni & Poppi.

We figured that was our best option timing wise. DS will not make the cut-off date for starting Pre-K that year, so he won't be missing school for almost 2 weeks while DH and I take a vacation. No guilt there! Plus, he will be old enough that I won't feel TOO guilty leaving him.

We are planning on doing the ABD trip, but probably arriving a couple days earlier in Rome at the beginning of the trip to get adjusted to the time difference and maybe do some exploring on our own. And we may add a couple of days at the end as well, but we have 2 options there. One would be staying in Venice longer before coming home, but the other would have us stopping in Paris for a couple of days and seeing the Eiffel Tower, and of course, visiting Disneyland Paris! DH said when researching the travel to and from Italy, almost all of the flights home route us through Charles de Gaulle Airport anyway, so why not stay a bit and see some amazing things while we are there?

Anyway, enough about that, I promise I am not turning this into an ABD PTR or anything, just wanted to share my exciting mail day!

I'll have the next Day's plans for WDW up soon, I hope! Trying to get a lot done before the Olympics start next week, because I'm not gonna lie, I will pretty much be glued to the TV for two weeks once that happens.

Thanks! I wish I was talented enough to make pages like that, it would have made the whole process so much easier. Luckily there are a LOT of talented DISers!!

Tell me about it! I am so NOT creative when it comes to things like that. Although, I am going to make a shutterfly book for my nephews. That is, if I ever finish my TR.

ABD Viva Italia! Nice! My step-sister and BIL does a lot of ABDs. We honestly can't afford them nor justify the price. Our 29 day Australia Vacation will cost less than the 11 day ABD version would have. That said, DW and I have signed up for the DIS groups Hollywood Backstage Magic trip next June. I've wanted to for a while, it just feels like such a must-do for a Disney fan.


We do plan our vacations out pretty far in advance. We've already got all of 2013s scheduled. Can't say 2014 is on the books yet, though a ski trip that winter is LONG overdue, and with DD hitting the "kids ski free" age for Colorado and Utah, I'm 99% certain that'll be the first 2014 trip.

The autograph book is super-cute, BTW!
