If I'm a redheaded ninja, does that make me a Gin-ja? I would like to think so!

Surprised me too!

Love your dress and pose. Looks like the first attraction is the enchanted tiki room.

No more new management?

Thank you. I really like that one and it may come with me in Oct

Yup No One guessed MK.
I think MK was a low crowd prediction and with theholiday and outside EMH nights worked best. I already had the car waiting to go and not parked so it worked.


I am happy to report the Goofy did indeed make it the whole trip. By the oct trip I will have a new AP. I am saving that envelope - it is magic.

No more new management.

Loved the pole dancing dinos, and the sunset pic at AK, you sniffing the lobby of the BC and your princess pose on Main Street! (your dresses in both pics are so pretty)

I was just looking at your previous trip reports about the side effects of the annual pass and I can totally relate. I got an AP last year when I ran the WDW Marathon and then the Princess 1/2. We ended up driving to WDW 5 times in 2011. I must say I feel sad that I haven't run a Disney race since last year. I wanted to run the ToT 10-miler when we are there in a few weeks but I waited too long to make up my mind but alas, the race sold out.
The AP is a dangerous thing - the next step in enabling my addiction to WDW is DVC I guess and your trip reports aren't helping...
Glad you caught up.

Good old Dr. V. First time I saw him I think. Well I know because the last time I drove I was with 2 girlfriends and I KNOW if either one of them saw it I would have remembered.

First partial day was wonderful- got so much done it was great.
I really had my "summer collection " out during that trip.


The side effect is Horrible. add in DVC and couple that with addonitis for DVC and you can have a trip every month.

We saw the Sorceror stuff being done, but we didn't do one ourselves. Brooklynn didn't really seem too interested. Maybe she will be in another year or two - if it's still around.

Main Street....can't wait to see it decorated in orange in four weeks!
I have had a hand in training many CMs. If I see them fumble a bit I usually just relax and settle in. I have learned to say - hey I taught you something new when they apologize. All part of the training.

I did get some cards but <spoiler> never did play. Totally forgot about it.
I need to get more cards and rememebr to take mine back in Oct. MAYBE I will remember to actually play. And it wont be a million degrees and crowded.


I am lucky to see DL and WDW decorated for Fall and Halloween. Less than 3 weeks and 5 weeks for me. You are leaving on the 12th right? That is the day I will be driving down.

Better look at that too.
Being that everything is new to me for DL I am all over the place trying to make sure I don't forget a small detail and I certainly don't want to forget a huge one.

Funny, In my mind MK made perfect sense after I checked in. I guess since I already had to get in the car to drive to BCV, why not just keep going.

That pink dress is one of my favorites.

Another fab guess on the attraction

I didn't officially make my guess, but I thought for sure you were going to Epcot. Maybe us DISer's shouldn't think so obviously.

Monorail peach. That's such a funny color to me for a monorail.

Monorail should always win the coin toss.

I think you have the same luck with AP's that I do. Seriously, I have the same problem constantly. However, mine this time is Donald and I REFUSE to give him up. At least you ended up finding out yours really wasn't demagnetized.

I love your dress, it's so pretty. I'm going to say you're going to see some birds.

13th. What time do you plan to get there on the 12th? I think you and Anita and I had talked about a quick meet. We'd love for you to see Sophie, of course.

I'm going to have to make sure I keep a list updated of all the DISers to watch for in October. I'll keep an eye out for the cute pink dress!!

If only I were flying down - I could be there on the night of the 12th. Instead, we will be in the car until the evening of the 13th. You'll have to say hi to Memom and the gang for me...

It sure would be easier to guess where you were headed if we knew the park hours, crowd numbers, EMH, etc...

It is definitely the cleaner they use that produces that distinctive smell. Now if I could just find out what that cleaner is, then all my bathrooms could smell like disney world. How cool would that be?

I have a Goofy AP too and we seemed to have a lot of problems with our APs not working right. Well, everyone's but Nick's. His worked great.

Love your MK pictures and you do have the cutest dresses!

More please!

It is funny that we all think alike. One October trip - beginning of F&W and race weekend I notice whee ever I went there was a crowd. I quickly realized there were a lot of DISers or other fan meets and such. Everywhere I knew to avoid crowds it was crowded. I had to think like a first timer and then I was fine.


As for peah I think they were stretching the monoral colors. Maybe they should have gone with yellow green?


My poor AP. The first one was Mickey and he held out until the last trip. This time boy - every trip at least once I have been in Guest services getting a new one. I think I have had everyone.

Thanks on hte compliment on the dress. I was trying something new and I think I really like it most times.

Birds are close.

I goofed. I actually have a POP room for the 13th before I go to BCV. I do have to work the 12th and I am not sure if I will take off from work and drive as fara as I can and just stop for the night or go home pack up and then leave predawn and drive straight through.

What time do you get picked up on the 13th?

I printed out the list from FB for my notes. I have at least 18 of us.

That dress is one of my favorites.

I will be in the car too. I some flexibilty since I only booked BCV for the 14-19 and got a discount room at POP on either end. I guess I could drive straight through and then nap in the parking lot. :

I can't let all the secrets, what fun would that be?

I think I have been through the whole gang this year on APs.

I agree with you on the cleaner, maybe another task for Oct. Find out the cleaner.

I really had a dress thing going this summer.

I knew you would make it over when you came up to breathe. I know you have been busy.

Glad school is getting into a groove for you.

Sorry we never crossed paths. The rain did not help us this trip. I am sure we were so close to each other but never collided.
