Is she going to WDW or DL? I can't remember. I'd love an updated lot of maps if at all possible. Pics of any new areas?

Relax as much as you can and enjoy the moment. I know it won't be easy with your family in tow, but don't stress the small stuff.

Looking forward to heaps of info and pics of Art of Animation

Try and take a photo of someone biting into one of those brontosaurus sized turkey legs. I tried to take one a few times on our last visit to DL but ended up laughing hysterically like a loon every time I tried to take a sneaky pic.

Maybe you are a better papparazzo (spelling?) than me.

I hope to not stress about the small stuff.
This was my advice to a friend who left 4 days ago, You will be tired you will be cranky and think this is not fun at all what was i thinking, then you will get home and realise where you went what your saw and experienced you will think you had a wonderful holiday and will start planning the next one and when the kids mention everyday something that they experienced and start saying Ive been there when they see somewhere you went on TV you will be on and treasure every memory you made with the kids.
