still loving your report! Wish I could have you with my family on our trip in a couple of weeks! I would love to have all your info at my fingertips! BTW...thanks to your husband for noting that the keychains don't come with the bag...I love the bag and will buy some keychains to make it look cute like yours!

Happy Fourth of July! If I wasn't laughing, your posts had me smiling. Is Shades the whole name? Does Shades offer entrance to the Extra Magic Hours just like a Disney Resort?

Yeah, I'd love to be watching those fireworks tonight with you (except for the crowds!).
162d 22h for me!
What ... no minutes and seconds in your countdown?? What's up with that?

Count me in! Oh yah, that takes money, doesn't it? Well, I will be there in spirit. As for those key chains, I usually buy one or two new ones each visit and I have so many on my bag now that I jingle when I walk. And some of them are actually designed to go on the pin lanyards, but I love hanging them on my bags. This all started years ago when my grandson was a toddler and I put a keychain on my purse to keep him occupied at restaurants and such. It has just grown from there ... and I can't use him as an excuse anymore. He turns seven on Saturday.

Glad you are enjoying my TR. The full name of the resort is Shades of Green and we are able to use the EMH, thankfully. I just love those extra few hours. It's amazing how much you can get done in just that first hour in the morning.

Ah, SOG. Maybe I'll remember what that acronym is the next time someone uses it. Does Shades also give you a parking pass or would you need to pay to park in a park parking lot? I must be bringing back memories of your tour guide role. : o )

Finally found the hidden Mickey, on the chin, but can't figure how to post a picture with him hi-lighted.

Enjoying the trip report, glad I'm not the only oldie who enjoys WDW, but always feel a little creepy racing around and running under the water spouts, etc. (to cool down, you understand) and my wife doesn't approve at all!

Sorry. Yes, it is just for military. I forget not everyone knows this ... silly me. And in answer to your other question, no, we don't get free parking anywhere except magic kingdom we use to, but disney decided they didn't want to do that for us anymore.

You found him! And, no, you are definitely not the only oldie who lets the kid out at the World. Although, I have not taken on the water spouts ... yet. I can see it now, you and I dancing around in the water with your wife and my hubby both standing off to the side shaking their heads and denying any knowledge of who we are.

My grandson turns seven today! Boy am I getting old.

I am hoping to get the next chapter up this coming week ... if I ever get a free moment (that isn't spent sleeping).
