YIPEE!!! So glad you are finally enjoying the parks! Can't wait to hear all about your visits.

Tracy's Lady and the Tramp tee is so adorable. Can you tell me where she got it? I'd love to get one for my daughters.

Yeah I feel like WE are in too after following your story from the beginning. I am very excited for you!

We are older and our kids are grown now and we want to spend at least a few months each year snowbirding in the california sun so your journey has been very helpful and interesting to us!

And yes I have wondered too, how are you feeling Taylor? I hope your illness has kept at bay in the past few months.

Hi Taylor and Tracy!

First, thanks so much for the offer of advice regarding college theatre programs - I am very likely to follow up with you on that at some point. Our older boys are only 13 and 14 but our oldest has been on this path since age 5, so we think his interest is likely to continue. They watched your videos on youtube and are inspired - really funny and your singing voice is excellent. Really hope you'll have the opportunity to perform again at some point.

Actually, one quick question - our 14-year-old's strengths are acting and singing (theatre classes, heavily involved in school and community theatre, private voice lessons, choir, etc.) Any advice on the importance of dance skill? He's taking dance lessons but it doesn't come naturally, so he's a little discouraged in that department. I know he would appreciate any encouragement or advice!

On to your trip report - wonderful!!! I'm so happy for both of you - what a joy! Since I'm a mom, I'll be even happier when I hear that Tracy secured a job and is happy with her work, but I'm guessing that's in an upcoming report that's just around the corner. I love the tradition of Pirates as a first ride in any park - my father (a Pirates enthusiast who BTW introduced me to Minnie at age 2) would be proud!

Also continuing to enjoy reading about your resourcefulness - lots of tips in your report that benefit all of us! Thanks much!

I must have missed where you mention your videos. We would love to check them out. How do I find them?

I haven't been on the boards in forever (and a day...) but having a s-l-o-w night at work and decided to peruse ... wow, your TR just sucked me right in! Love, love, love. I'm all caught up and I can't wait to see further adventures with your AP.

Aw man, I didn't want to hear about Disneyland... guess I'll have to stop reading now...

First off, CONGRATS on finally getting those APs (6 months ago, lol)!!! You guys deserve them. And it's pretty cool they can do a payment plan if you live there instead of having to drop all the $$$ at one time. That's probably pretty helpful for you guys and for families with kids that might not be able to drop it all at once. So cool!

And your first trip into the parks looks like a blast! Can't wait to see what hijinks you and Tracy have been up to these past months inside of DLR! More updates please!!! (I mean, when you're not spending time in the parks, providing us with more update goodies for the future)

I'm so glad you all finally got passes! At the same time, I agree that it is fabulous you got to see so much of your new area in the interim.
