Wait, what? Why are you mentioning BTMRR? They just had a huge refurbishment last year. I am pretty sure the Disneyland BTMRR is closed for refurb though...

Soooo sorry for the confusion. I just looked and BTMRR is closed at DisneyLAND. I'm such a goof.

Good morning ......

January is almost over!!

I have been super busy at work and it's interfering with my DVP (Disney Vacation Planning). Annoying!! And then at home I'm busy planning other peoples' trips and trying to remember to throw my kids some crumbs every few hours to keep them alive.

I need some down time, I want to work on my touring plans!

So, how many of you are doing this: ?

If you don't know what a LGMH is, check the DIS. The most recent thread I found is this one: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2984199 .

I always put one in our car window, one in our room window, and attach one to whatever bag I am carrying / wearing that day.

If I see you with one, I WILL say Hi. If you see me, you better say Hi!
I was always wondering if there was a way to identify ourselves and other DISers. This is great. I know a lot of us are at POR on the same dates, so I think putting them in the room windows will be interesting.

Either way...I don't much mind rain. The only issue is DS. I'd happily be drenched at Disney, but I don't want to be dealing with a cranky 2 year old. Remind me to pack the rain cover for the stroller, just in case.

Is anyone else excited about the Flower & Garden festival?
I thought it was just the gorgeous topiaries. I didn't realize they have themed play areas for kids. I guess they're adding food kiosks this year, as well.

Iím obsessed and my family is barely tolerating me! :lol

Dh and I went to WDW for our honeymoon in 1998. Iíve wanted to go back, but we havenít had the money. Now we are finally getting to go. The kids are 11, 9, and almost 5.

My kids donít really understand what is so great about WDW. I try to explain it, but they just donít get it. My 10 year old daughter is REALLY apprehensive about the whole thing. The idea of flying on a plane to get there makes her tear up because she is really scared of it. We were talking about the trip together on Saturday and she was really trying to understand why Iím so obsessed. She doesnít like rides at all and I was trying to explain to her that the rides at Disney arenít like the rides at Six Flags or at the Fair. They are THEMED and itís more like a show. I know that Iíll never get her on any of the roller coasters. She definitely wonít do Haunted Mansion even though I LOVE it. She wasnít even sure about soaring when I was explaining it to her. I know sheíll love Peter Pan, POTC, Jungle Cruise, all the shows, etc.

The best I could explain to her was that is was like being IN a movie or a cartoon and itís just FUN.

I think weíll just have to get there and see what she thinks.

My DH is calling me obsessed. I didn't get this crazy planning last year. But having been there, I know to what extent I need to plan and what can be go with the flow.

I need to make two more ADRs and I don't know what to do. We want it to be at Epcot, since we want to spend two days there and we only have one planned so far. (We don't have hoppers.) We already have Akershus dinner reservations. It doesn't need to be character, but it has to be good for kids.

My older DD is making demands on me now, telling me this morning that we HAVE to meet Merida because she's a princess and we haven't met her yet. (We've met all the rest except for Pocahontas.)

Biergarten! That's what we're doing, Akershus & Biergarten. It sounds fun for the kids.

Just thought you all would like to know that Wheel of Fortune is giving away 2 Disney trips a day this week. Watch the show, get the bonus round phrase, then enter at the Wheel of Fortune website.

Very excited! Been twice during this time and EPCOT is so beautiful. The food booths are going to be fun.
