Happy April fools to you too - I was the prankster this morning and got a couple of people lol!
Hi Tanz! I'm glad you came by! I excited to stay at a brand new resort!! I just keep looking for new photos!

Sam tried to get me, but no luck!

Congrats to Kadence on selling so many cookies! Does she have any extra boxes to sell?
You should give it a try at the start of one of your trips! I'd love to see all the room themes!

Kadence does have more to sell! You interested?????

I would love to try Art of Animation sometime. Maybe if Emma ends up going back for another CP she can get a good discount.

YES! We usually buy cookies from my cousin's daughter or one of the girls on our street but they didn't sell them this year. I only got two boxes from kids at school. So if Kadence has more, I'd take some.

Is she trying for another CP? That seems like such an awesome thing to do!

I'll FB you about the cookies.

The Little Mermaid rooms look so cool. I agree that the bathrooms are awesome! I'll bet Kadence will be over the moon!

I don't forsee having a problem finding pink fabric to match the I heart Perry shirt. What type of skirt do you have in mind?

Did you see how some people keep complaining that the only standard rooms at AoA are "girly themed". I don't get it. I think it's pretty neutral myself. I am loving the looks of the rooms. I am still tempted!

I am envious that you'll get to stay at Art of Animation. I so wish that that Disney had had the "extreme themed" rooms back when we first started going. Now, I'd be hard pressed to get the family into a super themed room.

Yay for Kadence bumping up her cookie sales! Way to go!

I've been looking at the AoA pictures too, and I am OFFICIALLY jealous that you're staying there! Little Mermaid is my lifelong FAVORITE and I'm pretty much in love with Eric, tell me I'm not the only one who noticed his portrait on the wall? I think I'd be requesting the bed closest to it... (not that THAT is creepy, or anything).

Congratulations on the cookie success, Kadence! I was a girl scout too, but I never sold THAT MANY COOKIES!

I just remember how awed she was with POP, so AoA should knock her socks off!

I really loved Maddie's little blue skirt you made her. Would that be an option?

I KNOW! I wouldn't expect a 16 yr boy to "love it" but I also don't see why younger boys wouldn't like it. It's not big princess pictures, it's Eric, Ariel, Sebastion and Flounder!.

Some people have to have something to complain about! I wish the had Cars standard rooms! Kadence would love that!

I'll let you come visit my room!! The bathroom will need lots of photo taken! LMFAO!

I'm thrilled the rooms came open in time for us to stay! I just glad we can do this while she's still young.

Thanks! She is thrilled of how she did. Did you enjoy her little thank you note!

Question;

but first, the story behind the question.


On this trip, Kadence's lovely Grandma wants to do something again for Kadence's birthday. Last year it was the Tea Party at the Grand Floridian. She asked me what she could do, or pay for on this trip.

What could she do? Any suggestions?

We aren't going to do BBB this trip, but will in 2013. I told John about the Wonderland Tea, but he's not liking that idea, he doesn't want to be not included again from things Kadence is doing



On to the planning, John is talking himself into changing our dining plan. (Jen, when things become solid, I'll let you know) We currently have Quick service, but he's now wanting to book some sit down meals, and is thinking of upgrading to the reg dining. I'm not saying too much, except to encourage his great idea!


I'm currently waiting for Nov calendar to come out soon, so I can go ahead and plan parks days & ADR's.


Happy Easter everyone!

I think that the Family Magic Tour looks like a lot of fun for kids, and isn't too expensive as far as the special tours go.

I know that Kadence is pretty girly, but the Pirates League looks super cool, and the Pirate fireworks cruise does too.

I'm sure that these are things that you've thought of already, but I hope it helped!

I can totally make a skirt for Kadence. I'll probably be out of commission sewing wise until around July, but that should be plenty of time. Maybe you'll even need more skirts by then! I'll get more details from you closer to then.

Hope that you and your family have a wonderful Easter!

I don't know what the Family Magic Tour is, but will research it! Pirate League is out, I was wondering about the Wishes Desert thingy. again more research is needed.

Thanks! I'm not worried about time frame. When you're ready, let me know!


Happy Easter you too!
