Of course not. Nobody says that. It's like begging for more brussels sprouts.

What a great ending to your time in Disney!!

Glad to hear that the Plaza was good as usual. I really wouldn't mind going back there soon. Food is yummy and the price is great!

As always, your balloon tradition made me tear up. I think it's a fantastic way to honor your dad and to give some pixie dust to a child.

caught up on the last few updates...my man getting a Reuben sandwich, his stock just keeps going up on the cool meter.

that is my all time favorite sandwich.

and what is it with disney coke, i can chug a few glasses at every meal we have there, but at home am good with one. i think they put something in it to make you drink more and spend more money.

It is a shame that breakdowns seemed to be taunting you, but it seems like you got to do plenty of fun stuff anyway.

As much as leaving the parks for the last time is not fun or good in any way, I always have a different kind of appreciation for it whenever I read about your last day tradition. That really is a cool way to honor your father's memory.

The meal at the plaza is a nice last day touch too.

The balloon tradition is such a sweet tribute. I'll bet you made one little girl very happy! It is always feels so good to do something for others that they may not ever do for themselves.
Even the littlest things are great when you see the smiles you create. I love to give away fast passes if I am not going to be able to use them. (harder now with the time restraints, but we still passed on some TSM FPs this fall when the ride was down during our return time). And we had a counter service meal left on our tickets the day we were going home, so I paid it forward and bought the people behind us in line a meal.

You made the most of your last day! Can't wait to see some Marco Island photos!

I will do responses later (perhaps tonight after our company is here...it's just me, Mark, Andy and Mark's dad sister and brother-in-law).

But in the meantime, I wanted to wish ALL of my DIS friends a very Happy Thanksgiving.

I think I'm finally caught up! I loved the meeting you guys had with the Tremaines, they seem like they would be so much fun! And your pic with the Fairy Godmother was adorable!

I love that your last meal is always at the Plaza. Or last day tradition is usually just going to Epcot!

I think it is so sweet that you buy a balloon for a child in memory of your dad on each trip. I'm so glad the people you gave it to were so grateful!

I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!
