I don't have any magical advice... I am not sure what kind of things are pushing her buttons right now, but I would ask her what SHE wants to do, and let her dictate the schedule for the first day... then let her know there are a lot more fun and magical surprises if she behaves.

Oh, and bribing with Ice Cream always seems to work...

Good luck to everyone.
+1 on the ice-cream gambit...

Good luck on which ever decision you make.

Never signed up for Twitter.
There’s very few celebrities whose opinions and daily travails I’d care to read about.
As for being followed myself…
I suspect that even those “really hot babes” wouldn’t even be interested in following my running commentary.

I reckon so…

A happy belated birthday to you
and to all that I may have missed since about Friday.

Being as I’m not as good about checking up on them as I ought to be,
Y’all just feel free to forget about mine

Fantastic!
Hope both of ya’ are having a wonderful time.

Interesting… I wonder what they’d replace it with?

I’ve seen the show many times and always enjoyed it. But that doesn’t mean that Disney couldn’t replace it with something as good or better. We’ll have to see if that rumor pans out and what the change might be. There actually needs to be a bit more going on in the Camp Mini-Mickey area.

Sounds right tasty…
Since I missed the original suggestion, where abouts in DTD can one find these morsels


Thanks Randall

i like the show too, but I really like the Nemo show. Something about the whole father/son angle that gets me.

Morning gents.

Looks like I have about 30 pages I won't be catching up on. Nothing much going on around here. The leaves turned colors and are already falling. Looks like winter is coming soon.

Wish I had more to help...

Matt
Agreed. Talk it out with her. See what is causing the problem. Good luck to you.

If she is being that bad, send the other adults out to enjoy themselves.

I think Matt had a good idea.. sit her down and try to find out what's up. It could be overstimulation with lack of sleep and some excitement thrown in.

Feeling a little tired today at work after being up until about 1:30 2 nights in a row to watch the Reds. Well worth it though. I can't wait until tomorrow afternoon when I'll be heading into Great American Ballpark for Game 3!
Awesome! Have great time at the game!!!

Mine are that way too. It is Disney overload. Just do your thing and she'll follow along eventually.

Possibly moving to a new location, but that doesn't seem to be confrimed yet.

They are closing to make room for the new underwhelming rumor of AVATARLAND.
That does stink. We don't do AK every trip, but it was in our too 3 attractions there. Kilimanjaro Safari, EE, FOTLK, Kali River Rapids, Dinosaur, Triceratop Spin, Bug's Life, Primeevil Whirl, and Character Meets. I hope it just moves to new location.

Afternoon Guys! Rainy and cold to fit the mood around here. Pretty good chance I will lose my 3/4-time employee next year so there will be even less bodies to get the work done. Hoping we don't reach minimal critical mass for another decade though. Once Jr. SWMBO is out of High School, I don't really care what happens then; McD's is always hiring burger flippers.

The research year is winding down other than a broccoli trial and some data on roundup ready sweet corn to collect and analyze so I hope I can check in more regularly once again.

I've lived in Charlotte, NC for the past 6 years now but I grew up in South FL so we went to Disney a LOT when I was growing up. I always loved it, but my fanaticism didn't start until a couple years ago when we took our children for the first time. (I got three of 'em - DD7, DS4, DS1) Thanks to the internet, I found the DIS prior to our trip in 2010 and have been addicted since then. Just about a month ago, we closed on our first DVC purchase (OKW is our home) and we're really excited!
At this point, our next trip isn't planned until Nov 2013 because I'd really like to wait until our youngest is around 2.5 before we hit the road again (plus our new DVC points don't kick in until Aug 2013). We may try to borrow some points and hit up HHI in April if we can snag a room. Regardless, it's going to be a long 13 months of trolling the Internet for my Disney fix, but there is no shortage of great sites out there.

I'm a complete fanatic and it's so nice to be able to come to a place like this and share our crazy addition with others who "get it."



What if you put bacon in your peanut butter, would that make it ok?

Hi, Brian! Sorry it took me so long to get you officially listed here in the club. Glad you found us! You are member # 717!

WELCOME TO THE DIS DAD'S CLUB!

What a Beverly of a day already. Sitting at the auto repair shop waiting for them to open so I can drop the rolling van of doom off. 1 coolant leaks, butch in places that I can even come close to reaching. Them I head home to meet the furnace guy because that's not working on this 39 degree morning.
Yuck I hope you were able to get everything repaired and it cost less than a short Disney trip.

If you already have an xbox I would probably go with the Kinect. I like the idea of the Wii U but I've read the controller cost is pretty high and we'd probably need to have 2 to keep the kids from fighting over the controller with the LCD. Also I really like Kinect disneyland adventures.

Biggest thing to overcome though is if I apply and get it, we'd have to prep to move really fast, I'd have only a few weeks before I'd start. not a lot of time to do things.
I'll be praying for you to have wisdom. It sounds like 2 good options which can be the hardest kind of choice.

I'm glad she's doing well now. Hopefully it'll last for the rest of the trip.


My parents came into town this weekend to spend some time with us on their way down to FL. They gave me the best early birthday present ever, the spent the day cleaning the garage with me so I could finally get my car into it.

Hi all! Been another busy week here in VA. Had a weekend of camping with family and friends at Cherrystone campground on the Eastern Shore. The cold front came through late Sat night with lots of wind. Woke up to cold wind and rain. Fortunately, we rented a cabin for the weekend and was minimally affected



In other news... I finally broke down and got a smart phone from Verizon. My dumb phone finally peanut buttered me enough to make the move. Had the choice between the iPhone 4s and Droid 4... I ended up getting the Droid. Basically came down to the fact that the Droid has a slide full qwerty keyboard. Very nice additional feature for heavy texting work. I am sad, though, that I do not get to try Facetime with Dave Now I am trying to get used to the phone enough so I can keep up with the DDC goings on. Might have to buy ForumRunner.

Glad things are going better. This is one of my big concerns with our up coming trip.
