Hmm. Ok.
Yeah, gotta say the anticipation and arrival of the box was much more exciting than what was inside the box!

The good news about the box?

It means the trip is around the corner.

The box was pretty cute itself though and worth the wait? Well I thought so

As Kevin stated, the box does mean the trip is coming up fast! I look at it as added value...and don't take too much stock in the contents of the box.

The pictures of The Box look significantly smaller than what we got last year.

I, too, liked the box better than the contents.

Friday night (6/14) dinner

It's been a couple weeks since the topic was brought up, but with time winding down I wanted to post again a reminder for anyone interested in joining the group "Second farewell dinner", now planned for Steakhouse 55 at 6 PM on Friday, June 14th. Currently we have 17 people "signed up". If you read this and want to join in, just post in the thread. (If you are already on the list below - then there is no need to post.) I am probably going to call up in another few weeks to make this ADR.

The 17 suspects:
Peter (skier_pete) and Ulana (ukeemom)
Rory (roryh22)
Christy (chropistopy) and Cheryl (cherylbug)
Angie (ymxbfalcon)
Kim (kgibbler20) and Mary Ann
Melanie (Disneygrl36) and Eric
Lori (BriarRosie)
Lisa (Lee Disney) and John
Matt (Darthvader92) and Matt's Mom
Toni (Disneykiwi) and Christine (brightie)

I thought I was alone in not being overly excited about the contents of the box. I had seen pictures of others and I guess I expected more. Another testament as to why not to share surprises.

It's funny - there doesn't seem to be much more we need to know about the trip. It's just nice to go in and chat with everyone.

Just so everyone knows, I am posting a picture of the contents of the box over at my PTR - be warned if you haven't opened yours and don't want to see - do NOT go over there!

I guess I dont understand the reason for taking a chance on ruining a surprise for anyone else.

Didnt you enjoy the surprise of getting and opening your ABD box?

You posted that you had to wait till you and your wife were in the room together to open it.

If you had read a trip report with photos....wouldnt that have ruined that moment of anticipation.

Again....I dont see a reason for taking that anticipation away from someone that stumbles upon these photos.

Sorry, many of the folks following my PTR were asking what is in the box. I didn't think it was that big a deal of a surprise. I waited several days after the box arrived to post it.

If you would prefer, I'll take the pictures down after a few days. Again several of my DIS friends (not going on the trip) asked to see what was in it. I'll give them the chance and then I can take it down so no-one stumbles on them in the future.
