(Yeah, sure ) I also thought maybe Elvis was too far in the past for you - not that you don't know who he is, of course, but I thought it would be someone more recent. One of my other guesses was Michael Jackson, because of the dark glasses.


I still think it's though!

Those early morning pics are beautiful! Everything looks so still and peaceful - what a rare thing that is in Disney! You can just imagine the change in just a couple of hours.

I'm so sad that your TR is over. It's the first thing I look for when I get on the Disboards. Whose TR will I have to follow now? OK, all kiddng aside, I'm really going to miss all your stories and great pics, and also the posts from your readers (several which had me Wonder who that could be? )

I can't wait to see all your souvenirs!

It's over?? You mean really and truly it's over?

The boys faces in the first picture are how I feel about it.

I love Disney in the early early morning hours. When it's still and quiet and there's only a couple of people about. I do not like Disney in the early morning hours when I am getting ready to have my butt on a plane going back home however. What a sad state of affairs.

Your pics from the balcony are beautiful. I bet you hated to leave that moment behind.

*sigh*
Another May, another trip far behind you.

Onward and upward I say!!

P.S....
I'll see you in 93 days!!!

I'm sure you'll find SOMEone's TR to follow.




And I know--- right?? Some of these posters in Shelly's thread had me in stitches!! Sometimes I just wonder where they come up with the stuff they do.

The old man from Up!!

I think you really need to see this Lego dude in person to see Elvis!! As soon as DS brought out his Soarin invention I said -- hey, how come Elvis us riding Soarin with Jodi and I?!!

Sure you were!!

Michael Jackson is a possibility.


It was a rare site to see the BC so still and quiet and I loved it!! Too bad it was the morning we had to leave.

I'm so glad my readers and I have entertained you!! We've enjoyed your company as well. Boy IDK whose TR you are going to read now.....

It's over girl!! And you know what? It seems like this trip was so dang long ago, even though it really wasn't. Weird.

I know, the boys faces say it all. So sad.

It was a nice morning to enjoy my sticky balcony. Too bad we had to leave. Hope they cleaned that thing for thge next person!

The new ME bus was super nice. We felt so special!! Our flight home was at 10am. The bus usually comes about 2 1/2 to 3 hours before your flight. I don't remember the exact time on this one, but I do remember it pulled in right on time. IDK how they are always so punctual with having to stop at other resorts!!
Thanks for the ME info. Our flight leaves at 7:55am. Yawn!

I hope to write a TR. I'm not very gifted that way but I'll sure try.

So sad to see your TR come to an end. I always enjoy reading them! At least you have another trip right around the corner.

Love the early morning pictures....one of my favorite times of day at WDW. Everyone is still asleep, it's peaceful....something you don't usually get to see.

I love the new ME buses!!! The blue interior is nice and they added seat belts. I noticed the seat belts on my weekend trip when I looked and saw all the kids wearing them.

Shelly~ so sad your TR is over. It looked really early in the morning what time did you have to leave? The only thing I don't like about ME is how much earlier you have to leave for the airport. We usually have a car take us back b/c DH won't get to the airport that early.

Well I went into HR today and I'm the new grade 2 teacher!!!! So excited!

Aww, it's over?! But, I'm not ready for it to be over yet!

Oh well, I guess all good things have to come to an end, right?

Thank you so much, as always for sharing your TR with us! I have loved every minute of it!

Hope you enjoy the rest!

Found the time to read the rest of your TR. Great read, but sorry I didn't write down any of my comments. I love what your DS10 did with his lego of you and Jodi. So awesome, that he knows you and Disney that well, and can translate it through Legos!

The ME bus looks nice! Did you have a really early flight? Does ME pick you up two or three hours before the flight home?

leaving 3 hours before a flight is nothing, intenatioanl guest and Cnadains get picked up 4 hours before thier flights. So if you have the first flight of the day for your airline at MCO your in for a two hour wait at the airport just for the arline staff to open the counters.

"that's it." ?????

TR over???



Where's the link to the PTR for your BIG Christmas adventure with Jodi? And yes, you should call it something like that!

As usual - a great TR - with wonderful pictures and stories. I really appreciate your giving your honest opinions of things - good, bad or otherwise, and the prices for your meals with ratings! I know everyone doesn't have the same tastes, but it's nice to hear about other opinions and experiences.
Thank you!


I hope school goes well for your boys this year - so far we're doing well with the switch to middle school for Sarah. I think it's a little rough for her because she's small and now her grade is youngest (it goes 6-8th). So she's fighting her way through the halls with all these "big" kids! But she seems to like it. Paige loves her teacher and in 4th grade that's the biggest thing. I just hope they can keep her from getting bored - right now nothing is very challenging. I'm sure that will change!
Have a great weekend!
