Hey Girls!

Great updates as usual! Love the pics from your Dismeets! We were lucky enough to meet up with Mary and her girls in 2010 and you are so right...those hugs are amazing! What a special time you got to spend with your friend! It brought a tear to my eye just to know how happy she must have been for one last trip

Coyotesweat! Thanks for joining in. It sounds pretty cool. Brown pelicans. That so neat. I wonder what happened to the birds when they closed the island. I guess the capture some of them, may be all.

I finally just looked it up on wiki and here's what they said. Interesting history.

The pillow really says it all! When I think of Tracy of I think of the way she looked in that pillow.

I highly recommend the breakfast buffet there. I think Cynthia said it was, but I'm not positive.

The meet was a blast. The party was a blast too and I am just about ready to post!

I definitely see where MaryEllen sees that Tracy is looking right at her on the computer. I'm so glad you had this time with her.

Love the DIS group photo. Aren't Avery and Cayley the best? Avery is a good hugger (can't wait to see them in 125 days).
Is it down to 125 days! Woo Hoo! I need some Disney right now, badly!

Both Avery and Cayley are precious. I love that they are so friendly with strangers - well - strangers their mom knows. It's great they can be so friendly.

It is pretty cool that you photograph Cayley without even knowing who she was at the time!

You are right. It's cool to meet people who otherwise wouldn't have. I believe there are so many people all over the world that we could be friends with. So many missed opportunities. But meeting people on the DIS creates opportunities.

I'm not sure I knew or remember that my DH said that to you Cynthia!!! Can't take him anywhere!! Although we have unique ways of identifying DISers in our conversations. I'll say things like, Mary Ellen, we met her at **, she's the one who went to Hilton Head (another trip we're copying) or Cynthia, she's the one that did the Alaska cruise. He can't remember names otherwise!
Denny can't remember names either. He has said "Cynthia who?" so many times its not even funny. He finally got it after the last trip!

Your girls are adorable and they are still at such great ages. Enjoy it because the teenage years aren't far off. So glad they liked their goodies!

Tell me about it. I have looked at those breakfast plates a couples times now just wishing I had something remotely close.

That's cool! I know that Christine loves hanging out by the pool at the villas and I can't say I blame her.

I know what you mean about not having enough time to do a TR. They can get really time consuming!

I love learning about all the old rides. That does sound like fun! It's so great to go back in time. I wish someone would do a documentary that would outline all the changes.

I didn't realize that you met Mary and her girls. They are really adorable. I am going to get to see them again in June along with Kathy and Anita and Marc. I'm pretty excited about that!

We were very fortunate to get to spend some time with Tracy that morning. She was so optimistic, but it was obvious she knew deep down that things might not be all the great. So very sad.

Par-taaaaaaaaaaay!


I know everyone has been waiting to hear about the party. Are you sure you are reading for this? I only took…immmmm…….500 pictures that night. So sit back and enjoy as we Par-taaaaaay!

But first - one final picture I overlooked as we were leaving Epcot




When Cynthia and I got back to the Willderness Lodge we decided a little pool time was in order. Of course, we had to use up a little bit of our rum stores this afternoon!



There is very little sun around the villa pool because of the size of the trees. We literally had the only spot with sun and it sure didn't last long.







Pat came over to join us and then we went got changed into our costumes for the party. Cynthia is the master mind behind the costumes. Her idea and she ordered everything. So thank you Cynthia!

I guess I won't keep you in suspense any longer. Say Hello to April, May, and June………….



I'm April. I think Pat was May and Cynthia was June. But I'm not positive.

So what do you think? Do we make good blondes?

Sure we do!





We made our way to the boat. Clearly we weren't the only ones going to the party.



It was a pretty evening







I wonder what they were looking at?



It may have been these guys. I asked if I could take their picture because their costumes were so freaking awesome





It may have been a beautiful evening, but they were running one boat short and you know what that meant - extra waiting. ugh!







We completely missed a boat because the line was so long. What a drag!

Finally we were on our way, but Cynthia and I still had to pick up our tickets at Will Call and that took even more time.

Byt the time we got inside the party I think it was already 7:45pm. Yeah - it took that long for us to get there and get our tickets.

I'm pretty sure that close says 7:40







I thought Main Street looked even better than the last time I attended a party (this was actually my third)



Inside it was obvious that everyone was already lining up for the first parade.



But we got the mojo tonight after our transportation woes and we ended up literally stumbling into an empty spot on the sidewalk. Score.

Somebody near me already had their glow on

I only took a couple pictures and the next thing I knew - *BAM* - the headless horseman was heading right towards me



Yup - He's just a blur



After the headless horseman flew on by I had time to take a few pictures before the parade started.





At one point the CM's managed to get all the kids out for a dance party.



It's a flock of princesses







Waiting





I think we had some costume competition across the way



Seeing this cart means the parade must be getting close



Ta Da!



Because one is never enough









I wonder if she noticed how cool our costumes are!



Pooh!

I love these guys









If you look closer you can see that the eyes are lit up on the tombstone









This just looks like such a fun job to have



I couldn't get a good close up of these guys



See what I mean? It's like "hey dude - look over here!"



I've never quite understood the purpose of the dancing cowboys in a Halloween parade







These guys look ready to Par-taaaaay!

Rock on Brother with you big ol red bass guitar





Oh Yeah



Now look at that picture again and check out how the window shade in the building is pulled back. Creepy!

See - there is someone IN that window!







And that, my friends, is the end of the parade



Since I went into a 4th post, I guess I will post a few more pictures I took before the fireworks.

Here's looking towards Tomorrowland



I just thought all the lights in the park looked even cooler during the party





How about if I end this update with a picture of the castle



Oh - and just in case you forgot what our costumes looked like (although I don't know how you could - lol).......



because next up you are going to feast your eyes on some amazing fireworks!

I would love to go back there, it is definitely my favorite buffet breakfast at WDW so far. Not that I have a lot to compare it to as the only other one I have done is Cape May but still, I've been to plenty of others elsewhere and just loved this one. Plus it is reasonable!!!

Yes, which definitely contributed to extreme lameness of the effort. I get an E. For Effort. We didn't do that much walking that day though.

I didn't have anything like that today either, though I did almost bid on a basket at an auction today that had ingredients to make some things like that. Doesn't really count though. Heck, I could eat that for dinner tonight. Sounds better than Yaki Soba!

I was bummed we didn't see Melissa again after that meet. We did get to see a several of the others more than once, including you which was so much fun!

Just the sweetest hugs and almost better when they are that genuine and unexpected.

Our time with Tracy was very special

So far so good, love the pictures. Now I'm sorry to have missed the Halloween party. Bob wouldn't go because of the crowds.

Love the blonde wigs, I have a pink one just like it!

I'm not familiar with April, May & June, are they related to Daisy, nieces maybe?

I just LOVE your costumes !!! What a great idea and so cute !!

The couple on the boat dock had one some amazing costumes, too. We went to the very first party on September 11, 2012 and there was a family there dressed as the Peter Pan gang. They had Peter, Wendy, Tink, Hook and Tiger Lily. They were really good costumes.

That party is so much fun and I love that parade !!

I've got a few more photos from our meet at R&C. I'm not hiding in all of them! Pretty sure Dave took these:




I'm right behind Mary Ellen

Getting set up for a group shot


What do you suppose Pat is thinking?



Sarah liked her sucker. See all the chatting going on behind her?

Great parade and party pictures!! You guys look so cute! I have to say that was the best parade at WDW in my opinion. I really like the Christmas one too, but this was so cool!

Looooving all the updates!!

The one with Tracy made me tear up a bit, I sure miss her sweet, funny, spirited spirit. She was a lot of laughs, it was kinda hard seeing her with the pillow knowing the out come of her prognosis. Bless her beautiful heart.

You did good on the pillow, Cynthia. I don't think I could have picked a better gift.

Okay, since I'm gushing about Cynthia's amazing ideas I have to say hands down those are some of the best comstumes I've seen in a long time!! So stinkin cute!! How did you come up with that?!? Too fun! Y'all looked great!!

Also, I'd like to get some ideas from you two on the goodie bags, we'll be having a Dis meet with a kiddo who I want to spoil a bit when we see her. And since Cynthia and you, Mary Ellen, are the Queens of amazing ideas, I really could use y'alls help on this one.

Such a great Dis meet y'all had!! I remember when everyone was on this trip and how left out I felt not being there with all those amazing Disers!! My next trip will probably be for the F&W, just not sure it will be for 2014 or 15?

Thank you, you two. This TR has been pretty great, I appreciate the time and effort y'all are putting into it.

Oh my gosh!! The party looks like sooo much fun. I love the whole Haunted Mansion part of the parade and such. What great photos! And yes, the blonde hair is very becoming!!

Backing up since I had to get caught up... what a beautiful day for your group Dismeet and breakfast with Tracy... despite sorrowing from the loss, the memories and smiles that you shared that day certainly warm your heart. Glad that you had that time with lovely Tracy and your other Dis-pals.

Now, what's up with making those like me who are a lazy slug on vacation look bad because you two work out while at WDW! Cynthia - even though you said you put in minimal effort for your work out - at least you did it!! I always think about it but am too busy getting to my next meal to give it too much thought! Great job you two!

GREAT costumes!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You ladies look stunning!

I never get tired to see the pics of the Halloween Parties. We have so many fond memories of them.

Oh, btw, Cynthia - we are going to have breakfast at the Wave in 2 weeks again and I'll have some of that breadpudding for you!
