What a great morning on TOT. I was lucky last week...no screamers on my car.

LOVE that photopass pic in front of TOT!

Love the boys ToT shirts! They are too cute!

Yes, teenagers traveling in a big group can be very squealy -- I wouldn't have been a fan of sharing the elevator with them, either!

We have SW points too
What dates are you going? I don't think our vacations are the same this year.

Sent from my iPhone using DISBoards
It is under Travel Tools. All the way at the bottom of the list, "All Travel Tools".

We're hoping to fly down Thursday 4/18 to Sunday 4/28. We might overlap a few days... when are you hoping to fly home?

I can't wait to ride ToT with Heidi & Julie in just a few weeks. Hopefully we won't have any screamers... unless they are us!!

The teenagers were really well behaved, they were just teenagers. They get loud, they get squealy and it does get a bit annoying after a while!

Last day/ last park :(

When I left off, we had spent our last morning at DHS & were headed to AK for a few hours.







It was around 2:15-2:30 when as we made our way to our first stop… Dinosaur.






We rode twice then headed to Asia. Zach picked up his favorite AK snack along the way.


I’m sure you guessed we were headed to Expedition Everest!




We rode twice! This is when I hit my head really hard on the bar sort of on the side/back of the seat. I believe this was my last “bump” of the trip!


After EE we took a funny ride on Kali with a large group of cheerleaders!




It was slightly congested in this area!






Warning! You may get SOAKED!




Our boat was us & a group of cheerleaders still in their outfits! I think a couple of them even took off their shirts & were just wearing their sport bras! You know… they didn’t want to get their shirts wet! It was pretty funny. They were almost as squealy as the girls in Tower of Terror!

As usual, I got soaked & the boys didn’t feel they got wet enough. After the Kali, we started to make our way out of the park.






Continued...

Last day/ last park :(

Again, we timed it wrong & the road was closed off for the afternoon parade! Tim didn’t want to stop but I was excited to see the parade so I snapped pictures as we walked along the route.










This guy lost his stilt so the CM was trying to block him as he fixed it!




And then it was just us & this CM walking out to his car.


Good bye Disney!


I don’t want to wave… I don’t want to go home!


This is the best I can do mom.


We did have one more bit of excitement that night as we were packing up. I received this text message from Heidi at 6:28pm.
“Help! We left Liam’s stuffed animal behind. Vistana lost and found has it. Can they deliver it to your room and u fly it to nh?”
After some more back & forth and a visit from security, Snow Bear was in our hands.


And with that, we packed up & went to bed. The next morning was uneventful as we loaded up the car, checked out & made our way to the airport. We were back in NH in no time… ready to plan the next trip!

Up next: Final thoughts on this trip as we begin planning our next family trip! Plus a mini-TR from our trip to NYC this summer.

SNOW BEAR !!!!!!

Every parents fear, to lose that one lovey that can not be replaced. But thanks to a bit of pixie dust and Amy's NH bound family we had Snow Bear back within 24 hours!

What a great last day Amy! How was it coming into AK so late in the day? Were the ride lines long at that time? I'm worried we only have a half day for AK. Wish time could stand still in Disney!

Great parade pictures!

Oh No. Not your last day. What a great trip report.

The boys look so bummed to have to leave.

I love your shirt. So, so cute! You look like you are having a blast on EE. Too bad you got a battle scar to prove it.

I absolutely love the parade at AK. It really is my favorite!

Looking forward to your final thoughts.

And - and yeah for recovering Snow Bear.

Once again, I really enjoyed your pictures!

Not bad for your last afternoon at AK- Dino twice, EE twice and Kali. And getting some bonus parade time.

Did the cheerleaders get soaked?

So sad when you walk out those gates for the final time!

for your part in the rescue of Snow Bear!

I am woefully behind on your PTR for the girls trip, but it sounds like an absolute blast!!! You must be out of control excited!

What a fun afternoon at AK; I always regret not staying long enough for the parade.

I don't like waving goodbye either...it's so sad; but glad you have another trip to plan.

All too familiar.

The only way to survive leaving is to be planning your return.

Enjoyed the AK pictures!

What a fun last day you had. Cheerleaders didn't look too bad.

Waving goodbye to Disney is so sad.

Great report.

I don't want to wave when I leave Disney, either.

Thank goodness you were able to deliver Snow Bear to Liam -- I used to live in fear of losing Connor's Baseball Bear.
