Yay for so many updates! And YAY for a trip video!! Iíve always wanted to make one, but didnít really plan anything until this past Sept, and most of the trip there was only 2 people at a time, so that can be kinda hard to video cool things, bahaha!

Oh man, I totally do the same thing with my notes, or Iíll just write down stuff like Ėparade, Tiana, splash, snack, fireworks, and have no idea what happened in that time aside from that, bahahah. At least thereís always pictures to go off of!

Wow those pictures of Spaceship Earth! I love the black and white ones, so pretty!

Ahahahaa, oh Disney baconÖeverytime that I try it, I think, ďmaybe itíll be good this timeĒ and it just never isÖlikeÖwhat is it with the bacon?! Everything else is so tasty!

Rule breaker!! But those are awesome shots! I seriously wish that you could actually get good pictures on more rides (well, I guess people with actual camera skills and good cameras can get pictures, but I just managed some PPF pictures on my like, 11th trip, bahah!) How cute that Julia tattled!

A wait for Livin in the Land?! How weird! Iíve only been on the ride once and was still feeling queasy from Soarin, so I donít really remember itÖNEXT TIME!

I love the girls dresses! Thereís so many adorable outfits that kids can wear at Disney that adults just couldnít get away with. Iíve always wanted to do the tutu and tank top combo, but think that might just be weird, I just try to ďDisneyboundĒ as much as I can! Ah! Just noticed that all of you are matching! Such a good idea to keep everyone together and remember what theyíre wearing! Haha, my Mom lucked out with my super bleach blonde hair, she could always find me.

What is it with that queue!?! Itís always dead, and no one I talk to has ever seen it full, but itís so empty, and DARK!

AH! Just did the math and we were totes at Epcot that morning/early afternoon too! And definitely probably in the same spots at the same time!

Haha, I totally get the Duffy thing, heís adorable and I love him, but Iím not about to buy another stuffed bear that then Iíll want a million outfits for! Ahahahahaha,
Thatís great that the kids have new cuddle buddies! How cute!

I have to agree about the greaseyness of some of the food in Mexico, and I just had the chips and guac! Those mini churros look delicious though!

Oh my gosh those pictures of Brynn on the boat are adorable, she just looks so content and happy looking at everything. Thank goodness for boat rides! Oh Fiesta Margarita, they are so tastyÖand strong! It takes me until like, Germany, maybe even France sometimes to finish them, and I love my tequila! Hhaha.

I donít think Iíve ever spent that much time in the China pavilion, heck, I usually skim Epcot to a half or 3/4 day, haha, glad you guys got so much exploring done!

That certainly is a small little table! And for a meal served family style, plus coloring pages, that makes it even tinier! Dear god, looking at the table from the top, like, thatís a 4 person table, not a 5 plus a family served dinner, thatís insane!

Ahhhh! Sawyer with the ears on is so cute! That seems like quite the awesome day in Epcot despite the headache, Iím glad it didnít bother you for the rest of the week! So weird that we were in Epcot on the same day, Iím sure we crossed paths at some point out in WS, or even in the Land/Sea, who knows?! We did start in Canada, and end in Mexico, but somewhere in the middle, we mightíve walked right by each other! Weird! Excited to read more!

I'm looking forward to the video!

Lovin' your TR! I admit I'm jealous of the super cute dresses on your girls. My daughter is turning 11 this year and not into cutesy dresses anymore. Maybe I'll make some shirts similar for her and my niece for our trip in Oct.

Also, that face painting tent in Epcot must have magic brushes! My youngest has SPD and can not stand for anyone or anything to be touching his face, but there he just laid back and let them do their work. Since his cousin was getting a pirate face, he begged to do the same and I gave in. I had warned them that he wouldn't last long and to just do something small like a mustache or pirate-ish face cut and that if he got fidgety to just stop. He ended up both and an eye patch!

Well, I'm glad you like it, because there was A LOT of face painting this trip! I do love Brynn's cat face, though, because she is always pretending to be a cat. It fit her so well!
I'm pushing for Brandon to finish it by this weekend, but we'll see!

They really are magic!! It is a struggle to get her to let me even wash her face, but she just sat there like she was in Heaven!! Her skin is super-sensitive, but not at the face-painting booths!

Hehe...at least putting on a happy face this year was easier than putting on a happy face the year before when we all had the stomach virus!
I really did have fun, despite feeling like crud.

Ah so many updates! Such amazing pictures- I hope I can get that talented one day! I CAN'T wait to see your video. Sounds amazing

Epcot and I have such a strange relationship. I know people LOVE it and I want to love it but I just don't! Last time we didn't even make it to the WS cause we were fed up after Ellen we left but I hoped the WS would bring up my opinion this time. While they did an excellent job with the theming and it is gorgeous, the food just doesn't seem authentic to me!

I did enjoy stalking characters in every country though!

Oh Duffy! I find him adorable and did have to resist buying his stuffed animal but he's so strange. I googled it and they definitely changed his back story! When we were just there, people were walking past him going "oh it's that random epcot bear!" But it's really cute that your kids love him!

Aw Julia's Crush question is too cute! How smart she is

People can be so rude and insensitive! It's SO hard for differently-abled children. They just want to enjoy themselves like everyone else but have so much going on.

Your pictures are so AWESOME! I just can't say it enough! I can't wait for the video! And those Epcot outfits are just tooo damn cute!! I definitely saw you guys that day, right in front of Mission Space! We also ate at La Cantina that day for lunch, I'm so sad we weren't there around the same time so we could have talked some!! I feel your pain about the headaches! I get terrible migraines and carry around pills that are also like $60 for 10! But hey, they can seriously ruin your day, and who wants a Disney day ruined! Man, I wish I would have come up to you, I would have given you something from my bag of goodies for your head!

Holy updates, Batman! Aren't you the power poster?

I've been away from the Dis, but I'm all caught up now! As always, your kids are beyond adorable, and the photos are SO good! Hooray for a successful Epcot day!

Ugh...I'm so sorry about your headache (been there, done that, got the T-shirt)...very glad to hear you didn't have a repeat!!

Joining in! Your family is beyond adorable. Loved the Pirates League pics! And I'm glad you enjoyed your Epcot day, despite the nasty headache. We ate at Garden Grill for the first time two years ago, and I enjoyed the whole experience -- food and characters -- a lot more than I'd expected.

Looking forward to more!

VIDEO IS READY!! YAY! Pictures are included in some parts, as well.
Honestly, Epcot is mostly about characters for us! Let's face it, we have three kids...AND ME!! So characters are what we're there for. The food is not authentic to me, either, except maybe the German pretzels and *some* of the pastries in France, but most things are delicious!!
Duffy is strange, but I just can't question the love they have for him!
I agree. People (and, yes, even me, even though I have a "differently-abled" child--love that!) seem not to be able to stop and think and separate themselves from a situation; it's all about THEM, not what may be going on with someone else. But there is never, ever a reason to be rude!

You've all been waiting for it (and so have I...now I get my computer back!!), and here it is!!!

OUR DISNEY VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:woo hoo:

Here's the link:
Disney World Family Vacation Video

I hope you watch the whole thing...yes, all 15 minutes of it...and enjoy! It really is amazing, if I do say so myself.

PLEASE feel free to share the heck out of it anywhere you'd like: facebook, twitter, with people who might be interested, and most importantly, here on the DIS! Brandon worked for a countless number of hours and I think he deserves the whole entire world to see his work!

And of course you will get an idea of what goes on the rest of our trip, but please come back and read the rest of the TR even so! I love you people too much for you to disappear!

Enjoy, and have a magical day!
