Thanks to help from our awesome Nanette I was able to book our FP+ reservations and got awesome times!!! However I can't seem to get them into our Touring Plans... That sucks royally since I worked so hard on them. Oh well, I'll make use of the 6 hr layover tomorrow I guess!!!! I got a noon FP for TSMM. Since we didn't get to ride that at all last trip for various reasons that I can't recall right now (LOL) that is awesome.

Heart attack tonight - I called our airline to confirm checkin times because our first leg is domestic. They told me that DD (who is flying out of an airport in my sister's hometown out west) has to go to US departures, and for my sister to go through security to accompany her she would need her passport. First that will blow the surprise (we are going to tell both kids together in the airport in Toronto when we all reunite) and second my sister's passport is expired!!!! Plus they have to be at the airport 2 hours pre-flight. I called back to see if maybe they could UN-link her reservation and got an unfriendly person but who told me that the first person was WRONG and my sister only needed a drivers license and they can go to domestic departures. But it took me almost 2 hours to get to the bottom of it. I had to work late to get ready as well. So bottom line is that I haven't packed a THING for myself or DS, I got home at 10 pm and tomorrow morning will be interesting!!!!! Oh well, I figure all I really need is my passport, my phone and my Visa. I'm not going to the moon, right? Things CAN be purchased in airports and Disney World!!!! LOL. Big problem with surprise trips and suspicious pokey boys... You can't pack in advance!!!

Bringing my laptop this trip so hopefully I'll do some live posts so you guys can enjoy them like I've enjoyed yours!

And Hubdave, SO happy that your got DDs bunny back!!! That's amazing service!!!!

I seriously cannot believe I will be there tomorrow. I might cry. Really. I'm just overwhelmed.

Us too, saw it when I logged in. We have AP's that had to be linked so I did that, unfortunately it didn't work. I was able to order magic bands and the other members of my party were able to do fast pass plus except for me and my husband. Had to call tech support, and 2 hours later it still wasn't fixed. They are hoping to have it fixed within 24 hours. What a nightmare.

I hope you have a more positive experience!

I am looking forward to getting the magic bands.

I can't believe you have still managed to keep it a secret from your kids. You are unbelievably strong.

I hope all goes well for you tomorrow. The Toronto airport doesn't have as much shopping as MCO, but hopefully you will find a way to pass the time.

Hardly famous. Just a retired old woman who hangs out as the lobby greeter at the Beach Club two days a week.

She also calls Pop-Pop the "Kissing Monster".

Looking forward to meeting up with all the guests that are there now and coming in soon on Sunday and Monday before I head off to Vegas to help set up Jeanne's classroom on Tuesday.
Hope to see you Sunday!

Wow! Just checking in and there are so many pages I missed. Not sure how everyone finds the time to check in on vacation? We have been leaving the room sometimes as early as 7 a.m. and stayed for Illuminations the last two evenings. By the time I get everyone ready for and in bed, I am exhausted.

We are having a fabulous trip this time! Loved Animal Kingdom Lodge, but the while family agreed, when we walk into the Beach Club, it just feels like home. We tried quite a few new things this time, like Sanaa and I got my DD to finally go on Expedition Everest, which she loved. I have used quite a few tips found on this board, including the drawstring backpack Dee suggested with the zip locks for ponchos and later wet items. It poured on us the other day, but stopped raining later in the day. It was great to toss wet items in the ziplock. Thanks for the tip Dee!

Tomorrow, we might take the girls to the first Fantasmic show. Hoping to make it to SAB tomorrow or Saturday, and then see Teena on Sunday. I'll try to check in again. Hope everyone here now is having as much fun as us!
