Sadly, she is. I'm so sick of this man and he has only been at my branch for 3 1/2 months.

Miss - love the TMNT! That is similar to what I had in mind for for dh and me with pirate shirts!

Hugs Dani! Sorry you are dealing with work stuff on top of being sick! I have had hand, foot and mouth before and it HURTS.

She found a pattern that had the basic silhouette of the dress that she was able to use as a basis. She's still working on it & I can't wait to see it all finished!
Amanda, we're still working on the white rabbit - I think he's going to ignore us until late September! Or the boys said I should just order something and pack it!

I can absolutely relate on the costume front - it was the same for Alice. And I looked on etsy, too - saw a costume for $500! Crazy! Great plan for a custom made Wendy dress - hope you post a preview photo when it's finished and before MNSSHP!

This is exactly why we end up extending our stays - 5 people, 5 ADR priority lists, at least two ADRs per day - we can't fit them all in!

That's my last resort if the Alice costume I'm ordering doesn't work out. My mom sews too, and she's the one who suggested the family theme in the first place! And how do they turn Leia, Wendy and Alice into costumes that aren't appropriate to wear in front of your kids? There must be a market for them, I guess - it's just not us!

Hope you find a cute shirt! That was my original plan and it was actually a little hard to let it go. I'll be watching for your report, since you'll return just as we're leaving!

Heather, LOVE that photo! Reminds me of my favorite Poly room in Samoa. I was so excited about Poly CL that my only request was going to be 3rd floor, since I wasn't going to have to worry about a longhouse. But now that Poly CL is closed for our stay, I'm thinking about requests again. Think it would be pretty crazy if I requested 3rd floor Samoa facing volcano pool. Can't imagine we would be that lucky twice!

I know not all will not understand, but I'd rather visit less often and be able to stay deluxe. It is the best R&R anywhere for me.

It is! Minnie and Basket, we've done a few non-parks stays on the way to the airport from my parents' condo and I LOVE those. Just spend time at the resort, swim, shop, walk around the Boardwalk, and make lots of non-park ADRs - wonderful! We spent a couple days at AKL last year during a non-parks stay, too.

And basket, I think DIY pirates are a great back-up plan. I bet it would be pretty easy, and a lot of fun. Our boys have done the Knight Package at BBB, and when we booked a last minute trip and couldn't get in, we did a DIY Knights thing. Honestly, it didn't turn out the best - I couldn't make the Mickey head in the back of their hair like the FGIT - but we had SO much fun trying!

Pas, that must have been amazing ON Halloween! And some of the candy is chocolate? Yay! I have a feeling our tweedle dum is going to fall asleep before midnight. But carrying him back to CR could be tough because his costume has a big hoop around the tummy!

Sorry about the conversation with your husband last night - I get it.

Missoutandabout, fun costumes!!!! Love those masks, and Jessie is adorable!

Dani, that's crazy and yuck! Feel better!

Friday is the night we want to stay at MK until they throw us out so we thought about going to AK in the morning, chilling at the resort int he afternoon and then going over to MK in time for Wishes and EMH. We wanted to have dinner right before we went to MK but that means going to AK int he morning, then back to YC, then BACK to Kidani, then MK. Is that CRAZY? My other option is to switch Sanaa to Thursday when we plan to go to DHS in the morning and just hanging out at the YC thurs evening. I have Capt's Grill scheduled that evening since we will be at the resort BUT, we can take our time getting to Kidani and getting back to YC on an evening that we don't have a park scheduled. We may miss the movie on the beach though. We were going to walk on the boardwalk thursday evening. HELP me because I'm thinking that if we stayed at Kidani, it would be easier......just saying....
Step, I love Sanaa! Glad you're keeping it, and we'd probably do all the running around in one day and then just hang out at YC entirely on Thursday with an ADR at the resort/movie/boardwalk walk. If you already have AK, back to YC and MK, I'd consider it just one more stop along the way. But we do a fair amount of running around generally, so that might not be the best plan for everyone. Good luck with your plan!

Mousemommy, thanks for the update! So happy you're loving WL - can't wait to see photos!

I have good news and bad news. The good news is that what I thought was a crazy acne breakout, isn't acne. The bad news is that it's this stupid virus making me look like a pubescent grease ball! In all seriousness though, the sore throat is clearing up and I scammed my parents into buying me ice to alleviate the pain in my mouth. I'm not feeling too terrible.

I would definitely start thinking of how to put his outfit together & maybe just do it. If you bring it, he might be more inclined to agree to dressing up once he's immersed in the magic. My DH is not one who would normally dress up. So, I know it can be difficult to convince them to do such things. I do hope your DH gives in & has fun dressing up with y'all!

It's so frustrating, right? It's ridiculous that almost every female costume is so revealing.

$500 for a costume?? That definitely beats the Wendy dresses on Etsy for $150 and $185. I'm so thankful that my friend is helping me out on the costume. I will definitely post a picture for y'all!

I would think that either Alice or Princess Leia's white dress wouldn't be too hard to sew. Of course, I know nothing about sewing, so I could be completely off!

You guys are all so sweet.

I'm super jealous of everyone doing MNSSHP this year! We didn't get to enjoy the party last year because Lily was getting sick and we spent half the night in the baby care center. When Danimal and I went by ourselves we had a BLAST!

Janet called They are both exhausted from a busy week and late night packing, but know they are both so happy to see friends...and I hope for Janet this is a little time to decompress and relax for a couple of days.

She wishes everyone a great weekend!

Okay, completing my syllabus today for fall (booooooooo) but, if I get that done, I will start my PTR tomorrow. I will need to commit to Sanaa by then...

I think that we will schedule SANAA on our HS/Resort day. It will be easy to take the bus directly from HS to Kidani and Captains Grill on the AK/MK day so that we can best utilize the resort relaxing time by eating at our resort.

Any suggestions for dinner near YC? We have ADR's at Captains Grill but I'd be willing to switch. We already have ADR's at Cape May Cafe earlier during our stay.

I think you're right! That's going to be the plan!

I do! I do! We usually go into World Showcase for dinner as most of our favorites are there, but if we're doing a non-park ADR, I really like Yachtsman, Bluezoo and Il Mulino. We do like Flying Fish, but our server was not the friendliest on our last visit. In recent experience, the other three have been more child-friendly. And ESPN is fun, but not as much of a quiet break as the other TS in the area. They are all so different, so it's hard to put one too far ahead of the other - just depends on what kind of food you're interested in. But if we had to pick an Epcot resort area favorite, it would probably be Yachtsman - it's high on our boys' ADR priority list.
