I just caught up on several posts, I have been getting behind on all of my subscribed TR's lately! I love the PP pics of Reid outside of Star Tours, the border makes it look like he's really flying through space!

No worries...glad to have you back!

Thank you! I really like those Star Wars pics of Reid.

It's so true about being too tired. I just couldn't go anymore at that point. When we sat down in our room to eat, I was very glad that we had not gone to AoA for dinner.

Thank you!!

It was so exciting! And I was happy for Ed that he could ride ToT more than once since it's his favorite ride.

It's a big favorite of ours as well. I was so happy to get in 3 rides!

Thank you! Reid plays with it a lot! And especially since Santa brought him a Darth Vader mask. He really wants to be Vader.

Thank you!!

DHS really can be a lot of fun. I know the park is lacking a bit in rides/attractions. But, you can still make a pretty full and fun day there.

He had so much fun posing on that thing. And he was so happy to have his own light saber.

I didn't even look at the setting when I had put them in because I didn't think it would ever get even close to being cold enough for coke explosions. Be warned if you stay at OKW....check the temp setting.

It really wasn't bad at all for us. But, I have heard other people say the wait was really long.

I know, right?!? I am glad he enjoyed the ride since he had really been looking forward to finally being able to ride it this year.

Oh, then you definitely got to get the Photopass pics there. Those are some of my favorite from our trip.

I did end up visiting AoA during our trip. But, it was at the end of our trip.

It's so easy to get behind on the DIS, right?

Thank you....I really love the Star Wars photopass pics. They're some of my favorites.

Thank you all so much for the wonderful birthday wishes!!

I had a really nice birthday weekend.

Friday night, my guys took me out to an early birthday dinner at one of my favorite local Italian restaurants. And then we had cookie cake at home.

Saturday (my actual bday), we had a low-key day at home, watching Disney movies on ABCfamily. And that night, my sister was kind enough to pick up Reid on her way home from Target (we live maybe a mile apart) and took him to her house. He spent the night there and had a sleepover with his cousins, which he was super excited about. And Ed took me out for a nice dinner. We grabbed some coffee and then watched a movie at home.

It was a very nice and quiet weekend. Which is practically perfect in my book!

Everywhere I read today, it's loaded with good experiences at DHS, which are making me think I'm not giving the park a fair shake.

Drats to all of you--I'm going to have to change my plans next month. I know where I will, and it means a noon start at DHS, but I think with that and an EMH, it's doable.

Anyway, I love the pictures of Reid with the Star Wars stuff. That is absolutely too cute! My son loves the make your own lightsabers, as well, and saves his money for it. I also can't believe the CM with that little boy! That is awful!
