Can't wait to read all about your trip!!
I'm glad you're here! It was hard when we were living it, but now that we are back it's much easier to look back and realize it wasn't so bad after all.

We were there Jan. 6th - 12th so particularly interested to hear your take on the parks on the days we had in common.
I don't want to give too much away, but Jan 6th and on were our best days. How did you guys find it?

What is your Dis name (FortForever) a reference to?

As you know I had one of those not-so-magical trips myself! But I took your advice & am focusing only on the positive!!!

Can't wait to hear more about your trip!!!
Woohoo! I still have days when I think about the trip and my "regrets", but focusing on the positive really does help a lot. I'm glad it's helping you too.

I think it's interesting to read about the not-so-good parts. Plus, it makes you appreciate the nice parts even more. Not to mention, rarely is a trip completely perfect and it's nice to know you are not the only one who goes through harder times at "the most magical place on earth". And thanks!

Can't wait to hear about your trip.
Thank you. Some days are harder than others. It still feels surreal. I really wish I could go visit her, but she's not there anymore. I'm truly sorry you have to go through a similar thing. It's hard to see them getting weaker and weaker. It's like a new grief every time. I'm happy to hear your mom was able to accompany you for one last trip. That must have been so emotional! Did she have a great time?

Wow! I feel like a celebrity.

The crowds changed big time! If you check out my PTR you'll see that we switched our dates by two days because of the flight. I really wish we hadn't because the second part of the trip was so much better! Oh well, hindsight is always 20/20.

It was my step-daughter's third or fourth trip to Walt Disney World. She came with us in 2009 (I wrote a TR for that as part of my honeymoon PTR, link in my signature). She also went with her grandparents (Ron's parents) once or twice before, no one remembers. She enjoys her time there, she's just not obsessed like us. She doesn't know much about the attractions and restaurants there. She's just happy to follow along. Japan is her obsession, though I guess if we said we were going to Tokyo Disney then she would be very interested.

We *thought* we were avoiding the crowds for most of the trip by traveling mostly in January. We usually travel in summer, those specific dates were one of the "once in a lifetime" things we were experiencing, because it's usually too expensive (and too crowded).

Hey Shan! I'm happy you're here. I've already told you that I'm borrowing your chapter titles. I love the way you write your TR, with the magical and not-so-magical details.

Glad you could make it here! I'm okay with it not being the best trip ever. It just means the next one will be better.

We did stay at two wonderful resorts! I'll probably start my TR by doing a review on both, as I wait for the photopass CD to arrive.
