Life is what happens in between trips to WDW
Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

Of course that's what they looked like when you landed! You're going to WDW! But really...too bad they didn't take a nap!

I would say thats a lot off luggage, but Claire and I had that much too and neither of us needs a pack in play or car seat.

I did it for you!

I love Christopher in his pajamas...and so wide awake and ready to go. And Juliana always looks raring to go...you would never know she just got up.
Christopher would be happy wearing PJs all day.

Quote:
I remember texting back and forth with you about the Coronado while you were trying to get your luggage, give me your confirmation number, Mel trying to get it for you, etc.
Thanks for reminding me! I'll mention that in the next update.

Quote:
You don't travel light, do you? My oh my...hope you got a BIG truck.
Nope. You can't see all the carryons on the stroller- Mel's purse, diaper bag, my computer case, Juliana's bag... UGH!

I think everyone was excited. I tried to shut my eyes but Christopher wouldn't sit still and I had to help contain him.

Yea, tell me about it.

Her hair has grown so much since she chopped it off in the summer. It's getting back to a normal length now.

Melody & I debated canceling the trip all together but decided we HAD to go!
Good call! Gotta have priorities.

Another good move! Tickets are the only essential anyway. You can buy clothes down there. They'll cost you a 2nd mortgage, but still.

Dude, sounds like you brought that on yourself.

She was surprised we asked and said yes.
for more company!

Agreed. I think "they" started their career-path in the fast food business, according to Joe Pesci in Lethal Weapon 2.

You are right. Who needs clothes anyway?

I did but I was excited and I wasn't tired.

Too bad he wasn't an official for when that green team in Philly have the ball, huh?

True. But what fun would that have been. I'd miss Kathy yelling at me to post an update.

Maybe they should of stayed in fast food.

We went to Florida over Easter and he passed out on the plane on both flights. We thought he would do the same this time. Didn't happen.

Great start! That's a lot of luggage! Sometimes coming on the DIS scares the heck out of me just seeing all that goes into taking kids to Disney.

its the challenge that we love i think.

trying to manuever through the check in process with 5 pieces of luggage while having 2 more on your back/shoulders.

but this trip i learned the art of packing the medium size bag into the large size bag to have brand spanking empty luggage for the souveniours on the way home.

you wouldnt believe how handy this was and helped bring that JUMBO monorail playset home.

When You Wish Upon A Star

We were in the baggage claim waiting for our luggage, when I started getting texts from Kathy asking about Coronado Springs- which day we were trying to add and our confirmation #. I ended up talking to Miss CSR too. She was going to talk to her contact and see what strings she could pull to add the last night onto our CSR reservation so we didn't have to move to POP. It was time to see how much pull Kathy actually has. LOL

Anyway, we grabbed our SUV and started driving towards- not to- Disney. We were making a pitstop before looking for those gates. We were going to Give Kids the World!

We passed some power lines on the way....



We haven't been back to Give Kids the World since Juliana's Make-A-Wish trip in December 2010. Not only that but I was running in the Gingerbread Run 5k, a huge fundraiser at GKTW, the next morning and I had to pick up my race packet.




We had lunch at GKTW and did a little exploring.













We also found Juliana's star in the Castle of Miracles.









Each Wish kid gets a star in the Castle of Miracles and there are over 100,000 stars in there. It is really moving to see. There are so many stars, they just finished an addition to house more stars!

A little ice-cream before heading over to CSR to check into our room.





We had a nice time at Give Kids the World. It was great to visit again. We packed the kids up and started our drive to WDW.


Up next... checking in & Oh, NO! Characters
