We are all signed up for the FE and ready to go shopping tomorrow to start our gifts!! Can't wait! We have never booked a cruise so close to departure .... it is really exciting!!

The MV of the Fantasy was amazing and it ran really smooth. We actually renewed our vows for our 10 year anniversary on that cruise so it holds a special place in our hearts!!

Is everyone dressing up for Halloween or are all the kids? Can't decide if I want to take up all the space with two costumes for each kid ... one for pirate night and one for Halloween.

Our kids definitely will. Not sure what they are going to dress up as yet.

As for adults. Here is the full range. Some will not dress up at all. On the other hand. you will definitely see some go all out. We went to WDW for halloween last year and there were some non-kids costumes that were very impressive.

I think it is totally up to you.

As for me. Well. I got this shirt.
(hopefully no one will steal my idea)

I think the appropriate jargon is a Disney MickeyCon

One year I slicked my hair down, wore a really thin white dress shirt and tie with some nerdy glasses. But the kicker was I had a superman shirt underneath and a "hello my name is 'Clark'" sticker.

We might dress up for Halloween, but only if we can find/figure out good costumes. I was thinking about doing Mike and Celia from Monsters Inc, but the hubby didn't go for it. Back to the drawing boards.

We went to WDW years ago for Halloween and we did a Peter Pan theme... I still have my Wendy costume but the kids don't want to do that again ... wonder if I can get the hubby to be Peter Pan ... last time he was Mr. Smee.

I was dying to do family costumes (Wizard of Oz! Avengers! So many ideas!), but the kids INSISTED on picking out costumes the other day - Cinderella & Hulk. Plan B was for the husband to be Bruce Banner and me to be the 'before' Cinderella - no one else likes my idea or is onboard I guess I'm skipping dressing up this year!

Back from our short trip to DL and the expo. Cars Land is amazing! I can't wait until it comes to FL..they did an amazing job with Radiator Springs Racers, Mater's junkyard jamboree and Luigi's flying tires. The expo was pretty neat, and the highlight of our trip was the concert with Richard Sherman and Alan Menken. For those of you don't know who they are, Sherman (and his brother) wrote the song for It'd a Small World, Mary Poppins, Tiki Room, etc. During his portion of the concert, he play snippets of songs and talked about his time with Walt. Menken worked on the songs for Aladdin, Little Mermaid, Tangled, etc. His portion of the concert was more of a performance--he played lots of songs but didn't do a whole lot of talking.

While at the expo, my husband figured out his Halloween costume (I'm not going to give it away) now if he can pull it off! I still need a costume!

We will be dressing up this year. We let The Bee (age 5) choose the family theme. It was narrowed down to Wreck-It Ralph, Star Wars, or Oz the Great & Powerful. We are doing Oz the Great & Powerful (it will be myself, DH, Grammy, and The Bee!). And, of course, there's pirate night!

We have NYC Comic Con two weeks before and she wants to dress up for that, too...so she's deciding between Monster High or Star Wars.

So much to do, so little time
