What a great day in AK. I can understand that you got upset when Donald wasn't there to take a picture with you at Tusker House. I think you all woke up feeling more miserable than before. It's seems to go that way when taking a nap for that long

Having so much fun reading up on your TR!!! I chimed in on your PTR - love your writing style and your bags are again AMAZING! You and your daughters had such a wonderful time bonding and spending time together. You and oopsiDAISY have been a bad influence and I have convinced my guys to go to WDW for a short weekend in February. DS17 has a Friday and Monday off from school for the first time. Can I please PM you with a question or two? I am having difficulty with the TA and don't know what to do. I haven't been since 2007!

Keep up the wonderful TR! Your loyal fan club is anxiously awaiting.

We had a wonderful M&G with the up characters last year too.

V seems to have perked up a little after the EE rides - at least she's smiling in the lunch pictures.

Hurray! Finally some CM love for the greatness of boutique fabulousness!!!

I hope that 3 hour nap did you some good and the next day was the bestest ever. (I'd say that night, but I know how I'm like after a 3 hour nap. DH calls me Zombie Woman. )

Another great update. Sorry you didn't feel well that first day. being sick at Disney is no fun. The M&Gs all sound like fun. I'm glad your bags and headwear were big hits.
I love the Sully bag. He's one of my favorite characters.

D-been reading along on your TR and loving it! Been as crazy busy as I expected-its been a long week. I'm still at the office now but wanted to post a few comments before I go home to crash. I'll have to come in this weekend too. Next year if we go do a summer trip to WDW we'll have to go earlier to use our APs and that will work out better work wise for me but we'll face bigger crowds. I don't think I mentioned to you that I got an email from a friend that they fired 2 more people while I was away.

I just LOVE Sully!!!! Love his eyes. You always do such an amazing job! Love the lining fabric too!

Hope V makes a smooth transition to high school. Lizzy seems to be doing well and seems pretty happy. I'm more worried about her 2nd half of the year. Joe & Emma are doing well too. Emma cried when we got our mail Saturday and she saw who she got. She got the very strict teacher but even Emma admits she isn't as bad as she feared and she's got a few friends in her class so she seems happy now too. I think she will actually like the structure!

I have to say I was surprised when I read that you bought the Lapu Lapu-didn't seem like something you would spend the money on. I'm really sorry to hear you didn't enjoy it-even worse made you feel sick. I've stayed at the Poly 6 times and never tried one. I did try the Lava something-that one was good. My drink of choice at Disney is a Lemon Drop at Via Napoli but those are very strong so I often just got a sangria there.

Also sorry to hear you weren't feeling well at the dessert party. The one & only time we did it was on an arrival day. I thought what better way to get all excited about our trip. Big mistake. We ended up leaving before the fireworks too.

What wonderful character interactions at AK! Emma & I saw Dug & Russel. That was the #1 reason we brought her pillowcase back on this trip was the to get Dug to sign it. We didn't go see Mickey & Minnie in their new spot at AK because the line was always too long. Can't wait to see your photopass pictures!

I'm sure there was more I was going to comment on but I just can't remember. I booked a room this morning for December for Emma & I -her last one on one trip before middle school. I just can't get through this budget season without a trip booked to look forward to. I still need to book flights. I have almost $400 in Jet Blue credits and the first $100 expires next week so I need to do that.

Love the Sulley bag.


Your morning at AK sounds fun. I would have been puking if I rode EE more than one time.

I love the "cranky" pictures. So glad they had Donald inside; he was outside for us and it was hot and you could tell he was hot.

Have a great weekend, D.

That was probably the quickest impromptu DISmeet every. But for real.....you gotta haul to a CRT reservation.

V definitely worked hard to come up with her 1/2 of the meal.

Glad you were able to make it in time.

We seriously never have ponchos when we need them. Oh yes, we bring them. And then subsequently always leave them in the hotel room.

The queue for Donald and Goofy is extremely boring, isn't it? Standing in it is like watching paint dry, and I'm not that hard to entertain.

I'm sorry you weren't feeling well! Ugh, there's nothing worse than that in WDW.

We had to experience the mass exodus of Main Street after the dessert party. I picked up one child, someone else picked up the other child, and the grownups just said "see you at the front" and we all separated. Otherwise, we would have been stuck forever.

I'm so sorry you had to miss the dessert party because you weren't feeling well. But you have to always do what's best for you.

Holy smokes! I love your Donald duck butt bag!

No Donald at Tusker House? You were right to be upset! That's definitely what you pay for with the meal as well.

Missed you at AK too! We were just exiting the park as the huge storm hit and we ran through it hoping to not get electrocuted before we got to the car. Our last Disney day now more than 2 weeks ago. LE SIGH

You are right - between Tink and the Donald/Goofy/Minnie/Daisy line... Probably the worst lines ever.

Thanks! It was loads of food - despite being sick - we were happy to be there. It was just a VERY LONG DAY for our first day (or any day) - I knew better, truly I did... But the girls didn't want to give up any of those meals, so we were stuck. Suzi was our savior that day - for sure!

It was FUN! And Pocahontas was amazing... I was just editing those photopass pictures last night, and that photographer took a bunch of great ones showing her excitement - so that's pretty cool! And it would be even more fun if you knew her!

Thank you for all the nice compliments.... I love taking the girls and spending time with them - there are so many great memories there.

Hahaha... I can't say that you are the only one that I've instigated a trip for - I hear this frequently... The real problem is that I end up persuading myself into another trip too... I did send you a PM... I have no problems PMing people - except sometimes my box fills up... LOL

Thanks Liz! Yes, it was no fun - but we were in Disney, so we tried really hard to make the best of it. IT was super cool to get so much attention for our stuff... However, after a while, the girls were getting really sick of it - they started to sound like robots whenever someone would stop them. LOL

Hi Bernadette!!! Thanks for checking in - I was thinking of you yesterday (I was wearing Emma's bracelet)... So sorry that work is sucking the life out of you - that is terrible. But I am glad you have another trip planned - it will be wonderful to spend some one on one time with Emma... Where are you staying?

Glad to hear all the kids are adjusting well... It was so much fun to meet your family - you all are just the NICEST group of people. I can't wait to start writing about our day together! It's too bad that I dont' have many pictures of it.

Hahaha... Well - it was a regretable purchase... At least I know never to get it again. It kind of put me off on all drinks while we were there though - There were a couple others I wanted to try (the Gray Goose for one) and I was just afraid to, because I was nervous all of them would make me sick. So, I stuck with water for most of the trip.

So glad I am not the only one... It was so heartbreaking to leave, but in hindsight - I am kind of glad we did... I can't imagine how much worse off we would have been if we would have stayed.

I am glad you brought her pillowcase back - it was so neat to see it in person. I just love how you did it and the fabrics you chose! Victoria is sleeping on her's already. LOL

I totally get having a trip to look forward to... it always makes me feel better too... It's sad to think that I *almost* enjoy the planning more thant the trip itself. Although - I was hoping we would ahve more miles by the end of this trip than we did.

Normally - that is what we would have done too... And it's what we did many times later in the trip - but with Alli and I not feeling well, I didn't want to leave them alone in that crowd.

True... If it was just us there - it wouldn't have been so bad... but I had friends there and I didn't want to miss out with them. Oh well - in the end, it was the right decision. I am sure of it.

Thank you ! It was my favorite bag to carry during the trip.

Exactly my thought too.

Oh yes... I vaguely remember the storm - it took place while we were sleeping. Glad you made it out safely. I know - Thursday we were home for a week, funny how time flies.

Yesterday was a great sewing room day for me... As you can see, I finished up my latest order. I just love how it turned out! Sulley is one of my favorite characters.

I also finished editing my PHotopass pictures last night - very relieved to have that done... my final number is a little over 1800. Not as much as last trip, but this CD is very odd. It seems I have doubles of every photo on there? Not sure what happened - but I think it has to do with the fiasco (I have yet to tell you about) that happened on our last day. I don't plan on ordering the CD, until I go back through our pictures to make sure I have everything I want. And I kind of want to wait until Disney releases the MNSSHP backgrounds - I'd like to throw a few of those on our castle pictures. But we will see... I might just get anxious and order it sooner.

I have some great things up my sleeves for the coming months... I can't blow it yet - but I just want to say that it's HUGE and BIGGER than anything I have ever done before... And it will be CRAZY!!!! I cannot wait to tell you all about it!!! I plan to work a little in my sewing room this morning to prep for this...

Out-take of the day...


I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Day 3 Part B

Whoa!!! That was a long nap!!! I usually don't nap that long - even at home.

When I woke up, I texted Suzi to see what they were up to... We had hoped to meet up for dinner tonight.

We made plans to meet up with Suzi and clan at 6pm at the Epcot bus stop for AoA.

We boarded the Epcot bus at FQ at 5:30, but we didn't realize that this bus was stopping at ALL OF POR first. ACK! So we were waaaay late....

When we arrived - our bus pulled up right next to the AoA bus, just as they were closing the doors. So, we hopped off of our bus and on to the AoA bus, we thought Suzi was on this bus... But as the bus pulled away we realized Suzi wasn't there. So, we thought they hopped on an earlier bus - because we were really late. So, I sent Suzi a frantic text telling her that we just boarded the AoA bus, and asked her where we were to meet her.

All of a sudden my phone rang - it was Suzi... And she was saying "We are still sitting here at Epcot waiting for you. How did you get past us?" OH NO!!!!!!! This is NOT good!!!! I felt so horrible - I didn't realize they were still there, I thought they got on an earlier bus. I don't want to tell everything here - because it's part of Suzi's TR... but let's just say that we felt AWFUL that we had missed them.... And I felt like the biggest idiot ever.

I ended the call with Suzi just as we were pulling into AoA.


Suzi sent me a text telling me they were on their way... They hopped a bus to POP (supa smaaat), and they would meet us at the bridge between the two resorts. Having never been to either of these resorts - I had no idea exactly where this bridge was... So, the girls and I went inside and asked a nice CM... He happliy gave us directions and advised us to have our ponchos with... Uh-Oh... Tut-tut, looks like rain... So, we wound our way around the big pool (what's it called?) and found the bridge...














V was starting to get cranky again...


While we were waiting for Suzi - the girls and I talked about AoA, and pondered if we could ever stay there. We loved all the "in your face" Disney stuff - but then we looked at how far some of the out buildings were from the main building... And well - I am not sure we could do it? However, there were parts of the resort that did look like they were a lot of fun - we just loved the theming!

So... Did we ever reunite with Suzi and clan again?
