So happy to see you back on the boards and starting another PTR! I am positive your anniversary trip is going to be wonderful. Denny and I are already planning our 25th anniversary trip for next year!

Yes you have.

Since we'll be at Yacht Club for a couple of those days, I think we definitely need to fit a little Grand Marnier Slush meet in there.
I would love to do that. Let's see as we progress here if our dates match at Epcot.

I am devastated that Ziva is leaving; I feel as bad as I did when Prentiss left Criminal Minds and I do NOT like her replacement at all.

Oh and lest I forget, I am looking forward to this pre-trip report!!
Thank you, Bob.

Hi there; happy to have you on this PTR as in the past. With the short time until my next trip, I figured I best get it started. I'll try to keep up with both of them.

Absolutely; I will be deeply disappointed if we don't at least get a hug. I'm just sorry my fellow Hawks loving guy won't be with you.

Yes, you were first. I wish I had a prize for you.

Thank you; like I said, like any couple, we've had our ups and downs, our health scares (Mark's heart attack, my breast cancer), losing family members, etc., but we stuck through it all.

Just saying hi. I'll read when we get back home. Or when I'm bored sitting on the beach and need reading material.

August 16 -- Arrival Day

Well, since I've gotten nothing done between starting this PTR, updating the girls trip TR, catching up on other threads and doing laundry and getting my pedicure done (who wants to clean anyway?), I figured I might as well get arrival day up and going.

Before, I do, here is a video. I put two on my TR from the wedding and this is the kids first dance. Let me explain something for those who watch it. Both of my kids got their dancing from their father. Which means they are awful. They certainly did not get it from mom. Mark was supposed to take two lessons, but he had injured his kidney the day before the first lesson. He did make it the second lesson a week before the wedding, but didn't have a lot of practice time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITycFlrXvJ8

So, we are leaving on Friday, August 16, for our longest trip yet. We have an 8 a.m. flight out of Midway Airport. I much prefer O'Hare, but we couldn't beat the $200 fare we got out of Midway. We are scheduled to land in Orlando around 11:30 a.m. After arrival, we will head here:



From there, we will take the most Magical bus to our home for the next seven nights:



We have come to love this resort and it is now always our first choice.

I'm sure our room won't be ready, but I will check in and this time will be prepared with our swimsuits in our carry on bag and we will head to the pool. I will also check back on the status on our room after the fiasco last year when we never got a text that our room was ready and we finally got in our room at 8:30 a.m. We do have a studio near the Hospitality House which will be nice as we'll be able to use the main pool this time.

After some pool time and lunch at the pool, hopefully our room will be ready, our luggage delivered and our Garden Grocer order on the way. We will then head to the bus stop for our ride here:



Depending on what time we get to the MK, we may or may not have time for an attraction or two or time to browse the stores before our 7 p.m. dinner ADR here:



Yes, I am eating here the second time in two months and the third time in eight months. I do love this place and so happy that Mark and I got an ADR for our arrival night.

After dinner, we'll do a few rides and then head back to OKW for our first night sleep before our first full day at the parks.
