Hmmm, I actually prefer Bayou, but since you like Mansions better, maybe you could ask them if you can move over there if something opens up.

Two more days ... less than 43 hours until our plane takes off from Buffalo! I'm going nuts trying to make sure I've remembered everything, constantly checking the weather forecast in case I need to pack different stuff, etc.

So excited. I just can't wait until my boys see the castle.

We are back to reality today

I took tomorrow off to recuperate from the drive. I'm so glad I did! Back to workTuesday. Boo!

The weather was great! 88-92 degrees every day very little rain. I do like it hot. It was a great vacation. Wish I could've stayed longer, but I'll be there again in July for the whole month.

Hope everyone has a great upcoming trip.

Seven more days I'm almost finished packing and I'm really excited. I can't wait to check in at Pop century. I really hope I get a room in the 50's building since I love that decade.

back to reality for me too today. I'm seriously considering calling in sick tomorrow because I am just SO dang tired, not to mention the mountain of laundry that needs to be done and the hundreds of photos I would like to upload.

I was dying to say this all week when I was posting from there but didn't want to jinx myself, lol. But after the past couple of months of the 4 of us suffering from all kinds of bugs/sickness/injuries, and all the sleepless nights I suffered worrying about what bad luck would befall us on our trip, I am happy to report that none of us had so much as a sniffle or a hangnail the entire time!!

Well, actually, YDD did fall about 10 minutes after boarding the ship in the Nemo splash area and got a huge road rash type of scrape down her leg, but we bandaged it right up and she was fine.

I'm just now looking thru my Photopass photos and am bummed to notice right off the bat that at least 2 of our sessions are missing!! Merida & Jasmine/Aladdin (different days). Maybe even more but that's all I noticed right away. I got pics with my camera too so not a huge deal but I'm just peeved that I pay all that $$ and don't even get all the photos I should. Has this ever happened to anyone else??

That happened to me last time so I waited a day or two and then they appeared, but if they don't show up I know there's a process where you can describe what you were wearing in the pictures and things like that and they can find the pictures for you.

I was a bit frustrated because there wasn't even a Photopass photog at the Merida meet and greet when we were there. We were the very first people of the day, but you would think that they would have been ready for us knowing that there is always a crazy long line.

We got back yesterday afternoon. Boy is it cold here! 41 right now after 90s all week Our last day was a little chilly but it felt good after the heat. We loved our room/resort (POR) and "The plan" worked very well. We hardly had any lines at all. DH and DD rode EE and RnRC 5x each.
The one glitch was when TSMM broke down and closed while we were in line, then was still closed for our FP time. We asked them much later in the day if they would let us go through the FP line since it was broken during our time, and they did! Never hurts to ask We even got into BOG for lunch with no more than 10 minute wait. I must say their ordering system is not very efficient, but the food was yummy and came out quickly once we finally fought through the touchscreen. Dining room was really cool. We went about 11:15am.
Hope those still waiting to go have a wonderful time. I'll let you know when I get a trip report up.

Yup. You can definitely request to have them added. They'll request you send them a group picture, and the closer you can get to the actual time, the better (so the time stamps on your own photos will help).
