I am also all caught up. My teens and I just got back from a week in WDW. We have to go to SoCal for a family event next month so we will have 2 days in DLR the week of July 4th. That gives us one day per park, or 3/4 of a day in DCA (open 8 AM - 10 PM) and 1 & 1/4 day in DL (open 8 AM to 12 PM). We got lucky with the schedule - there are no EMHs on our DL day and we will be going to DCA on a non EMH day. We are able to take a rest/pool day in between parks. I can't wait to read about how much you were able to do and see in one full day!

Wow I know waits are long for Matterhorn in the mornings, like max 20 minutes, but not 45! I'm glad that you did it though. And Nemo! I have to say, you're getting a lot done within the first couple of hours while you're there.

I love your SM picture and the picture of you fumbling for your camera on Buzz!

I'm so excited to see where you're off too next!
Yeah 45 was way too long Too bad I was too busy talking and didn't even notice how much time we were spending on a line that wasn't moving at all! But we were enjoying ourselves so it's okay..

You're going to have so much fun doing both parks! We didn't get to *everything* in DL but we did a lot and I felt like I got a great taste for Disneyland. I really wish we could have done DCA too, even just to see Cars Land, so I guess we'll have to take another trip!

Have fun on your trip! It's been hot down here so bring lots of sunscreen.

I'm so glad this TR got you excited! That's exactly why I decided to write it (although I definitely didn't foresee myself being so terrible at keeping up with it!) I hope your trip was amazing!

I know I can't believe how quickly it came and went and now it's all over!! I wasn't really nervous until right before I had to walk down the aisle. But it was so much fun and our honeymoon was amazing and now I'm back and can't believe any of it actually happened! I may post an update with some wedding/honeymoon pictures but I feel like I need to get back on track with this TR first!!

I'm Going to Post an Update...For Real!!!

So I'm alive, and I'm back, and now I'm married! And I'm ready to refocus my attention on the DIS! Man, I'm so behind on all the TRs I'm reading, not to mention the one I'm writing! I can't believe anyone is still actually reading this, I'm surprised but also excited and it really makes me want to get back into it, so thank you to those that commented recently

Well, I almost had some super exciting news to share (more exciting than getting married!!!! ): I had a WDW trip booked for the beginning of September! Did you notice the past tense?

Friends of ours, another couple who actually just got married, asked us if we wanted to visit WDW with them in December in between Christmas and New Years. We wouldn't have been able to go then, but I suggested the beginning of September for 4 nights since our school schedules (two of us are teachers in the same school) would have allowed it which NEVER happens in September! They agreed and we booked the trip! I was super psyched to experience the non-existant September crowds. We had a great deal with free dining and decided to stay at Coronado Springs (it would have been my first time at a moderate!) We booked some fantastic dining reservations - even though it was a pretty last minute trip and already under 180 days - we got REALLY lucky with dining. First we booked Chef Mickey's, 'Ohana, and Hoop-De-Doo Revue. I was checking back every day though for a better time at 'Ohana (it was going to be a 9:00 dinner and we were hoping for something earlier). One day, what should I see? A dinner opening at BE OUR GUEST!!! I could not believe it! I thought for sure it would disappear when I tried to book it but it didn't - it actually went through and we got it! I was so excited! Fast forward a few months, and we still couldn't find reasonable airfare ($360 per person for a two hour plane ride down the coast!) The other problem with the dates was that we would return home late on Sunday and have our first day of school the next morning. We probably would've been okay with it but the amount of money for the airfare was just killer. So on the day before our final payment was due, I called Disney to cancel the trip. We decided we would try to book a longer trip next summer, and farther in advance. We'll see what happens...

Boy you better believe I was sad to let that Be Our Guest reservation go. It was snatched up within seconds, and I hope whoever got it was super excited about it and has a magical trip The best things that came out of this were 1) I got to experience the excitement of planning a trip that was an actual real possibility (as opposed to the trips I plan in my head all the time that I know aren't happening ) and 2) Bobby agreed to go - so I know he's willing to go back to Disney after all! Woohoo! And that's when I decided I would marry him after all! JUST KIDDING!!

So anyway, I just wanted to share all that. And now I'm going to get pictures ready for the next update!!! Thanks for sticking around!
