Oh that Cynthia! I'm so jealous.

You were cutting it close with that suitcase! I've started bringing a bag weigher on trips since I'm usually so close as well.

I'm absolutely no help on the geography. My house is super close to the airport and I can never find it. Bonus that you had a whole row to yourself!

A little stand versus the bakery. Oh Mary Ellen

Great TR ladies! Thanks so much for sharing your adventure

Well once again, I have been away for far too long! Geographically challenged- yes, that's it! I got lost!


Lone Traveler-

The pictures of the sky at sunset are gorgeous!!! I love the way the EPCOT fountain looks like it is on fire!


Reveal-

I never weighed in on the T-shirt contest and it is a good thing. The only one I was positive you got was the Beers around the World for Jeff, and you didn't get that one at all!

I love your purchases, especially the very cute shirt from Yak & Yeti, the Hook pin, and the cookbook. I know you can find a lot of recipes here on the DIS and I may just look up the meatloaf and the coconut curry chicken stew. Thanks for the tip about the chicken. BTW- I did make a shephards pie based on the recipe you posted. Yum!


Madame-

at the Michael Jackson profile comment! Too funny!

WOW on the last picture of Madame Leota you posted. Absolutely amazing!!!

I enjoyed your bonus fireworks pictures- the colors are stunning!

My husband and I just realized that we have never been on the Peoplemover at night! We hope to rectify this mistake in July.


49 1/2 Pounds-

Love seeing the pictures of your incredible view from the room.

Nice pictures from your run. The colors in the picture of the Dolphin are so pretty. I didn't know there are swan boats at the Swan!

at the picture of your suitcase! So glad you were under the weight limit.

I enjoyed hearing about your CBR memory.

Finally, I didn't even know you could see the welcome sign from the Magical Depress. How cruel! In July we are only taking the ME back to the airport from Disney since the first part of our trip is to Universal.

Loved the pictures from the plane. So detailed! The amusement park photo was great. I'm so sorry I can't help you identify any of the landmarks.

I look forward to your wrap up (loved the one from your last report). As others have said, it is sad that this one is over, but I'm so happy that you have trip literally around the corner!

I'm pretty darn sure this is Norfolk, VA with the underwater tunnel that dips down something like 1 mile.




How long was between the 1st bridge picture and the underwater tunnel photo? I used to live in eastern NC and we would drive up Rt. 32 to Norfolk/Virginia Beach quite a bit and we would cross a bridge similar to that. If it isn't the bridge you were thinking, it might be the bridge on Rt. 32 crossing over the Albermarle Sound near Edenton, NC.

As shocking as I know it is... I was behind again. I guess coming back to find you have finished serves me right for being away so long.

I love all the pictures you got Mary Ellen! Especially the one of Madame!!!

The walk down memory lane was great!!! Some of my best memories of Disney trips were those early ones... at the height of good deals and low crowds. Plus... it was neat to read that you have enjoyed CBR. Planning to stay there in 4 months...

I had to laugh at all the chair discussion... they are the creepiest things ever!! DD came in as I was viewing one of the pictures and I could tell it really bothered her too. Soooo creepy!!

You definitely made the most of the weight in your suitcase didn't you!!! 49.5 pounds. WOW!!!

Your seat on the plane sure was awesome!!! You got great pictures AND didn't have to share space.


How exciting you go back in just a couple weeks.

The picture of the tunnel is actually the Monitor-Merrimack bridge tunnel that runs between Suffolk and Newport News, VA. The Tunnel to Norfolk is slightly east of there. The big dark spot on the upper left side of the pic is a coal yard!!

Yup - less than two weeks now. I do have the East Coast advantage considering its only a 2 hour flight. I am really looking forward to this trip since its couples only!

I think its fun to try to figure out where you are. Sometimes I hit it exactly, most times I have no clue!

I love that too. We live right near the C&D *(Chesapeake and Delaware Canal) so I always get excited if I see that as a landmark.

It really was and it is something I will always remember. She really went out of her way to make him feel at ease and it helped immensely. He used to hate to travel, especially car rides. I guess knowing that he had to start school the next morning just completely put him over the edge.

HulaHoopy! Thanks for coming out of lurking to identify that as Clementon Amusement Park. That makes perfect sense because Clementon should be a little south of Fort Mott.

Well, I didn't exactly plan it but I figured it might work out that way. I see your trip is only 6 days away. Promise to let me know if you write a TR because I definitely want to hear all about your trip.

I always overpack. I have no idea why. It's weird. I always think I need two complete changes of clothes for everyday I'm there and I definitely don't . I am going to do better this next trip. Maybe.

Unfortunately, even though we are flying, we are not arriving until 4:30ish. I missed booking the 8am flight and then the price jumped. Just as well because I have to board Max. At least I have time in the morning to take him to the vet and do a couple things around the house before we have to leave for the airport. Still wish we had a better flight time but there was nothing between 8am and 2:15pm.

It really is hard to see pictures of Disney during the winter. It will probably be a bagillion degrees while I am there, but that just means more pool time. And you have your Alaska cruise to look forward to - that is going to be amazing!

That really was one of my favorite trips. I think I realized then that I was a Disney lifer and I didn't need to apologize for it. It really was a magical trip and that FA was so sweet that I will probably never forget her kindness.

I love it when the pilot announces where we are. I wish every plane had a map on the TV screen to show you exactly we you are. I am such a geek!

OK, now I don't feel so bad. Apparently there are readers who did recognize some of those landmarks and I appreciate them chiming in!

Thanks....and now I don't feel so geographically challenged. I think I found my house once!

I always hate when a TR ends so I am very glad I have another trip just around the bend. Makes everything all better!

Thanks! I will definitely do another one. I am going to combine HHI and the June trip into one TR.

Thanks! I generally don't get too many in-flight photos, but I think because I was traveling alone I decided to do it to ease my boredom! That and having an entire row of seats to myself.

OMG - my kids were so cute when we first started to go. I love that I made a scrapbook from my first trip. I love going back and looking at it.

You'll make it! I think its fun to have a Disney trip to look forward to when the summer is over.

I hope you do decide to do a TR. Remember, its never too late. I really enjoy your TRs, so definitely think about it.

Welcome back Stranger! Glad you are all caught up. Seriously, girls trips are so fun. There's nothing quite like them. Thanks for the compliment of the pictures!

I hope you have a wonderful time in DL! I have read a lot of DL TRs and it looks like such a fun place. I hope I get a chance to travel there one of these years!

Take care
It's so easy to get behind, isn't it? I take a weekend off from the DIS and I am totally behind. Hope you are able to get semi-caught up before DL. Have a great time!

Well, I am glad I was able to at least post your pic here and I think Jenny posted it on your TR, so you are all good!

Toes are more interesting than coffee - when it comes to pics. When it comes to morning - I'll take the coffee!

Just sayin!

I don't want this TR to close until after I get back from my June trip, so no worries there.

When are you getting back from paradise? Maybe today. Maybe yesterday. I am actually not sure, but I can't wait to hear all about it!

Well, I didn't exactly plan it but I figured it might work out that way. I see your trip is only 6 days away. Promise to let me know if you write a TR because I definitely want to hear all about your trip.

Ok, I promise!! I would really like to try....Although, you and Cynthia (and MeMom and Pat and Emmysmommy and Kathy and Scott...the list goes on and on and on...and on...) are SO fabulous at writing them, mine may be quite plain in comparison! We will see if I am motivated to take good notes during my upcoming trip...

I always overpack. I have no idea why. It's weird. I always think I need two complete changes of clothes for everyday I'm there and I definitely don't . I am going to do better this next trip. Maybe.

You "need options" too!!

That's too funny!

Try it on Denny next Saturday...see if he falls for it!

Unfortunately, even though we are flying, we are not arriving until 4:30ish. I missed booking the 8am flight and then the price jumped. Just as well because I have to board Max. At least I have time in the morning to take him to the vet and do a couple things around the house before we have to leave for the airport. Still wish we had a better flight time but there was nothing between 8am and 2:15pm.

Its ok I will have to try and hunt you down on Facebook so at least you can see the pictures I post. I do enjoy keeping all my friends updated "in the moment!"

Hope you had a great weekend!
