I just started reading your report and I just can't get enough. You are such a great writer and so funny. I am constantly laughing.
Can you share with me what countdown app and wait time app you use on your phone? We are going back to Disney in November and I am trying to find a good Disney app for my phone. Thanks!

Woot!woot! Congratulations!!!! That has to be an amazing feeling to be all caught up!!!!

I guess we are going to have try to squeeze Universal in because those rides sound amazing.

Thanks for all your hard work.

Thank you for the wonderful explination of the Harry Potter ride without giving it away! I've been curious about it for a while but couldn't find anyone to actually discribe what the ride does. Much appreciated!

Updates-apalooza! What an accomplishment considering how busy you are.

Your castle pic is perfect. The reflection is so clear; it looks like an ad.

Boo! No more Pixar Pals parade? It's so colorful and the characters are so Incredible! (Pun intended )

OMG! The fireplace at Whispering Canyon! We want to eat there next trip but so glad to know about the fireplace. The fireplace at our favorite anniversary spot is similar. Thanks for letting us know it's there.

Gaahh! What a treat to enjoy breakfast at Tomorrowland Terrace since it's rarely open. It's so peaceful to take a break in there and the view is so relaxing.

Hot dogs on a pretzel bun?! Now they just have to offer that at Casey's and I'm done.

Congrats on earning your ears and wearing with all of the other CMs!

Thanks again for the updates.Stay wonderful!

Hey Jess!

I have finally caught up on this TR and I am loving it!! You had me hooked on your Christmas TR (which made me plan a trip this last holiday season, which was awesome!) and now you're making me wish I was still in college so I could do the DCP! Ha!!
I would love to plan another trip this summer, but we'll see how things go! Thank you so much for writing this! It takes care of my Disney blues until I can get back!

Wow, you are all caught up! Years from now you are going to be so glad that you kept such an amazing account of everything you did at this time in your Disney life!

Guess what I am going to do today?! I am going to the Disney store to get my park hopper tickets for my fall trip. Yay!!!

My first trip report. In progress!

Yay for you getting all caught up!

OMG I loved your IoA/Universal updates! They make me want to go back again so badly! So glad you had an amazing time there! The frozen Butterbeer sounds delicious, I didn't know they had a non carbonated one! I do not like soda so I will definitely have to check that version out!

I learn something new from your updates every time. Like a hot dog on a pretzel bun at DHS? Yes, please!

Yeah!!! I am glad you ventured off property!

Now that you are a CM and have seen the inner workings of the company, you can have fun comparing how the competition does business..... Plus, new food!

It also will help out talking with the guests. Having knowledge about central Florida will come in handy.

I wish I had that much energy!!!!

You have so much energy--thank you for your optimistic attitude, childlike excitement (it's so refreshing) and CP Reports.
Having never been to WWHP either, it was fun to see your pictures. Are you in a hurry to get back or was once enough for a while?
Have a magical day!

Jess, first let me thank you for sharing your CP experience with us. I am really enjoying it, as is my DD16 who is a sophomore in HIgh School right now.

We are coming to WDW this summer (YC CL! Hooray!) and doing one day at Universal for the first time. DS12 refuses to go on roller coasters, but he has been very interested in the one he sees on the commercial 'where your feet hang down.' I noticed your description of Dueling Dragons as having you feet dangling down. Did you notice any other coasters that were like this? I am just trying to make sure we plan on hitting the right one, in the hopes that he actually might try it. Thanks!

Looking forward to your next set of updates

I'm a longtime Disney lover, but somehow only recently discovered DIS and trip reports! Have been catching up on yours, and just wanted to thank you for documenting this wonderful journey you are on.

You seem like an amazing young woman, and as a fellow Disney obsessed person, I'm so excited for you and the fantastic experience you are having. Thank you, thank you for taking the time to share it with all of us Disney dreamers!

I have to comment on your Mummy ride yesterday because I also love it SO MUCH! Last time we were at WDW we had a Universal day (pre Harry Potter) and by some wonderful circumstance (predicted thunderstorms?) we had the park almost to ourselves. My kids and I rode Mummy 9 times in a row - no one was in line - so we just kept getting off and running back through to ride again. My DH was sitting across the way on a bench watching us & cracking up (he doesn't like rides - except the PeopleMover - how can that be?). We finally had to stop only because the smell of the propane in the fire room was starting to make me feel sick.

Looking forward to more updates about your adventures!

Congrats on getting all caught up! I've enjoyed the updates!

I saw that you got the Tables in Wonderland card and I was wondering if I should get one too during my program since I plan to go to a lot of restaurants.

Could you say how much it costs?

Also, would you say there are additional benefits to having it other than getting the discount for dinner at World Showcase restaurants?

Thank You!
