I am here to join too. I usually lurk so thought I would post and go back and read. My daughter IheartDduck told me to go and check it out.

We love WDW and tend to be a bit crazy about it. People just don't get it

I'm hopping on board. I did throw my hands up in the air screaming at your introduction btw.

Magnum P.I is the best! We used to watch it constantly when I was younger and we still watch it today. *sigh* Tom Selleck.

I love Gold Peak iced tea. I'm just bummed that Disney doesn't have the diet version for those of us really watching our calorie intake.

That definitely is a superpower, being able to calm down any child in the middle of a meltdown.

Beautiful littles! I love that Julia already knows that you are crazy and embarrassing. And how appropriate that one of Brynn's obsessions is It's A Small World. That's awesome that the mural in her room is the clock thingy!

Sawyer is adorable and sounds like my nephew, who also loves making silly faces. It's always "TeeTee, look!", followed by another crazy face.

Hahahaha, "instructional learning time". Julia sounds like me. I HATED missing school.

Brynn is so right, Atlanta is a city of cars. For real. And they're all idiots.

Thanks, now I have I Wear My Sunglasses at Night stuck in MY head...

I adore CBR, but it is the largest resort! I stayed there last November and man. I just used the car.

I have to say... you made the dreaded "trip down" update worth reading! I enjoyed it very much. You're lucky that you don't live that far from Disney!

Not to sound lazy, but I hate when I have to walk far at the resort to get to the food/busses/store. It's like ENOUGH with the walking all the time, when I'm at my resort, I wanna chill. I find with the Moderates it's not really enough to specify the section you want, you have to ask for a certain building too. Before we stayed at CBR, I asked (on the Resort board) what buildings would be closest to OPR, and someone let me know the exact buildings and linked me to a map. Building 22 of Martinique was one of the ones I requested and we ended up getting it! Just a tip for next time.

Thumbs up on your children loving and never tiring of Stacey. This means you have done a good job as a mom. Can't wait to read about your first day!

I love reading about arrival days, those are the best days because there is so much excitement and anticipation.

We almost stayed at CBR this time, but the size of the resort scared me a little. It looks beautiful though, maybe another time.

I am amazed at your packing ability. AMAZED! I can barely manage to organize my car after a trip to the grocery store without everything toppling over beforeI leave the spot.

I tend to find myself yelling at billboards. The ones around here are normally just local advertisements for things like car dealers, malls, urination issues (oh how I wish I was just being gross there...) but nothing offensive. I've definitely noticed how they differ though. Going from here to my sister's in NC there are a LOT of Disney ones. Going out to my in-laws in Ohio there are a lot of religious ones. And then going to see family in VA there is a stretch where we mostly see adult store billboards. I think our urination issues are easier to explain to a child though, I'll keep it.

I read this earlier but then my Mi-Fi died and I couldn't respond!

I may have to try the earmuffs for my boys! Casey will often take his hands and cover his own ears when he is over stimulated. And as for the Crew, we have battles like that here. Did you get a GAC for Brynn this trip? Thinking about it when we go down, but I'm not sure if it would really benefit us (I guess it depends on how Casey starts to do with speaking).


And your 1st day down was NOT boring, the anticipation! Oh and I was watching Blue Bloods on Fri night (I know, I am a loser, home on Fri night watching tv)...and thought of you...no, not cause I think you are a loser) but I must say Magnum PI is one of those men who gets better with age!!!! yum!


Can't wait for more!!!!

I'm joining in - as a long term lurker on the DIS boards, I'll try to speak up some, but I'm reading along.

I'm from N. Ga as well - and I am SO glad I'm not the only one who has a hang up with the billboards. It is so strange how you start seeing nothing but stripper signs when you get south of Atlanta, and then the immediate change to anti-abortion/religious/vasectomy advertisements as soon as you cross the Florida line.

Your kids are adorable - this trip report will work nicely to keep me going until out trip at Christmas!

Well, gawrsh! Obviously I was totally and completely wrong about people hating the drive down update! Either that's the norm, or I just have really great TR peeps.

I'm pretty jealous of how quick you guys go to Disney!

Can't wait to hear all about the first day of firsts!
You should totally read the billboards. You will never forget them once you see them, and you'll never be able to look away again.
I use the auto settings or the settings that are already on there when Brandon hands me the camera, and I have to say that I took a couple of good pictures this time! Literally, two. A couple.

That's because they AREN'T aware of the camera! They've had it shoved in their faces since birth. They think their dad has one single lens-eye because that's the way he always looks!

Aw, thanks! I'm a bit of a car seat fanatic, truth be told! Both girls also have five-point harnesses and will be able to have those for a few more years thanks to the seat I bought them. I'm in no hurry for them to "grow up" in any way, especially safety!
Her crew is very cute. And very abundant.

Thanks! You just made my day!
You're right about us waiting not-so-patiently. I had to potty (shocker!), the girls wanted to jump on the Nemo beds, and Brandon was taking his sweet time!

WHOA. And guess what? I TOOK THAT PICTURE!!!!! Maybe I should take over photography duties in our family! Just so you know, I'll be overly-proud of myself all day and will brag to my husband incessantly.

Wow, that sunset picture is phenomenal!

CBR looks cute. YAY for arriving! Can't wait for the first day to begin!
The picture doesn't even do it justice (though I took THAT picture, too, so obviously I am winning on this update!). It was seriously the most gorgeous sunset I've ever seen...or maybe I was just in a really good mood...

Anyways…

I wish I lived closer to Disney like you guys do. I’m from Massachusetts and my mom and I just drove in August. Worst 22 hours of my life.

Don’t you just love those billboards? Very kid friendly…

I love how CBR has a Nemo theme to the rooms!
Okay, I have to admit that I am a little like that, but with my pillows. I failed to include that I would not leave any of my zillion pillows at home, and I can't sleep if they aren't perfectly arranged. We all have our "things," ya know?
22 hours!?!? I would die. Like really.

My 10 year old little man is one of the smartest, funniest and happiest people I know and he too has Asperger's ... it can be a challenge sometimes but he has one of the coolest, creative and empathetic views of the world...

I'm looking forward to reading more...
So glad you're here! I completely agree with your statement about your son--Brynn is the same way. I wouldn't change her for the world!
And your princess is eighteen! You know, I fully realize that I'll blink and we'll be at that point. I also adore and identify with Belle, so hopefully she'll never stop!

In case you're wondering, my sig probably says I'm supposed to be enjoying a DLR trip right about now, but I'm still in the car, waiting to finally be there! Haha!
So I'm guessing you're there now and having a blast, right!?! I'll have to check out your TRs and try not to lurk!!

There's something awesome about the whole build-up to the trip, and seeing the transition of real life to being immersed in the magic of Disney World.

Anyway, I love how Julia wanted to stay at school. THAT is dedication right there! But it sounds like having that extra time was helpful!

Brynn and her little crew; so cute. I totally get what she's saying though. I used to feel guilty if I felt like I wasn't paying enough attention to ALL of my stuffed animals.

I love that photo of Brynn and Julia at the welcome center. They're so cute... and Sawyer coloring. Your kids are pretty darn cute.

That Welcome sign is my favoriiiiite. That's when I know I'm officially on vaca!

The photo of you guys outside of the room is kind of hilarious. Like, please let us iiiiin, hahaha.

Those billboards, btw, sounds ridiculous. That area is VERYYYYY different than the billboards you'd see here in Washington state! At least in Western Washington anyway.

I have to say, I'm jealous you guys can drive down to Disney World! That makes things so much more affordable and easy, especially when you have kids.

YAY I can't wait to see your first Disney day!
See, Dani, I never thought about it like that. Leave it to you to put a new spin on things!
You said my kids are cute, and that makes you tops in my book.
The billboards up here are definitely nothing like the ones in South Georgia. It's a completely different culture down there in the middle of nowhere.
We do love driving. We don't love the time it takes, but we do love being able to pack up nearly our entire house!!

I'm looking forward to seeing more of CBR. It's one of the few resorts I've never visited, so it'll all be brand new!
I'd love to say that I have a comprehensive overview of the entire resort, but that would be a lie! There's some, but not tons. It is a great resort for a moderate...but I may be kind of spoiled now that we've stayed at Poly! Glad we stayed there after CBR instead of before!

For all the potty breaks, our travels were very timely this time! Maybe it's that I didn't allow lunch and dinner breaks !!

I love that Brynn had to bring half of her crew with her to Disney, so cute! I might be an adult, but there are certain things I have to have with me when I go on vacation too!

It's been a long time since I've driven down to Disney, but if I ever do, I'll have to keep an eye out for these strange billboards, we don't have anything like that in CT! The only thing I remember from driving a few times were the 100's of South of the Border billboards!

Yay for arrviing in Disney! I love seeing the welcome sign all lit up like that! Glad you got your room requests at CBR, even if you were kind of far away! I'm wondering where I'm going to be placed in POR next month, I hope it's not too far away from everything!
I know those South of the Border ones, too! I saw those when I went to visit someone on a military base once! Like I said, North Georgia is VERY different from South Georgia. It's another culture altogether.
If you get put far away, just ask to be changed. I probably should have. But CBR is much bigger than POR, so maybe it won't be that far away even if it looks like it on the map!

Oh, Tom Selleck...be still my heart! That man gets even better with age, too.
See, I didn't even know Disney didn't have the Diet Gold Peak. I have such tunnel vision when I get near the machine that I haven't even bothered looking at what else they have. Dedication.
This house is full of crazy faces and eye rolling! The littles definitely keep me entertained and on my toes!
Let it be known that even though I'm not far north of Atlanta, I DO NOT drive like those crazies. Not at all. But I am great at yelling at them.

Last time I think we were in Martinique 22. I didn't realize how much of a maze the buildings were, and how much time they could add. And I needed my Gold Peak Tea with a quickness, dang it! I'm totally specifying a building next time, though I don't think we're staying at a moderate on the next trip.
Glad I can expect more cute animals and men. It wouldn't be a Lia TR without them, really.
Stacey has pretty much been elevated to goddess level in our household, and I encourage it. I have a video of Julia quoting her highness one night when we were in line for BTMRR. I need to find that to post as exhibit A (or B, because I think in the last TR I got a video of Brynn about to go on Test Track...and you know what that means...).

Okay, I had lots to say to you about packing, resort size, etc....
But then I got to "urination issues," and I'm just stuck. Please explain. My imagination is running wild.

You have got to get some earmuffs. They make things so much better. Just letting her calm herself like that while having her hands free to be a kid is wonderful!
We did get a GAC for her this trip. We never have before, but I will just go ahead and spoil the suspense and tell you that I am not sure how we've ever done a trip without it. We never will be without one again. It doesn't decrease your wait time in most cases, but it DOES decrease anxiety (for all involved) and meltdowns. I will for sure go into more detail on all that.
Tom Selleck has always been and will always be one beautiful man. I'm getting distracted just thinking about it...

Yeah, as soon as you get south of the perimeter, all billboard heck breaks loose. What is wrong with these people!?!?! Does your area of N. GA have mostly signs about neighborhoods? That's what we've got. And I can personally never afford to live in a neighborhood with an acre pool or beginning in the "low 1 millions."

HEY! Glad you made it over! Hopefully things will calm down tonight or tomorrow so I can get another update up!

AHHHHHHHH! I'm here!

Your children are adorable and I love the picture of the girls with their faces in the cut-outs. You're right ~ each one totally matches the character!

Yay for getting to Disney! Driving under those arches for the very first time on vacation is probably one of the best feelings ever!

I love that you packed each outfit in a ziplock bag. I've never done this myself and I think I'm going to for our trip in February!

Looking forward to reading more!
