The picture of V is funny, but what caught my attention was that guy.

That is the one thing I want to do this trip - go crash AoA. I don't think I actually want to every stay there (unless we get some sort of surprise kid) but I cannot wait to see the Cars area.

And you've got some sneaky ninja bus hopping skills there. Poor Suzi, having to catch up with you.

Oh my!! I have just discovered your trip reports!! I spent last night and today reading all about your March 2012 trip and now have started in on this one. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your bags! Since I'm new here I was hoping you could direct me on where to find out more info on your bags and how much they are and what not. I'm hoping to fit one into my budget for my first mother daughter trip with my DD6!!!

Oh gosh...that AoA trip was interesting. Still not entirely sure how we missed you guys But it actually worked out good because we got to see a little of POP too. Love your AoA pics. This night is one of the bad ones on my camera. I know Sara has some cute ones though. It was fun!

I can't wait to read the big announcement!

I would be disappointed that Donald wasn't at the entrance as well.

The pics of Alli with V being cranky are adorably funny.

Another cliffhanger...

I'm glad you and Susi ended up finding each other (funny that you missed each other at Epcot). Great pictures of AOA. I know for fact that Mark and I could never stay there. And not because of how big it is, because we don't like the big icons and the in your Disney. But they sure did a great job with it.

DOrine, do you have merida pics? I have all of them so just want to be sure. I don't have any fairy godmother photo pass pics, was there a photographer there?

Hi I am joining in! I really enjoyed your pre-trip report and reading all about your sewing! My very small sewing business helps fund our trips too! My DD had a cold during our trip and we still had a wonderful time, but being sick defiantly slows you down, and that stinks! I hope you all felt better as the trip went on. Can't wait to read more!

We have to go in July/Aug because of my DH's work schedule. I guess since its go then or not go at all, I have never really thought too much about the weather but it is pretty hot. But, I would rather be in Disney heat than heat at home!

Hi D! I had to follow your TR since our travel dates overlapped and I recall that Kathy Schultz met up with you too! It was HOT then! Melty HOT!

Your attempt to get to CRT for dinner sounds exactly like our experience since they had a parade at that time and we had to detour the long way through TL! Argh!

Sounds like you started to feel better but darn, sorry for the Dessert Party night you were hit with the crud.

Love your whimsical headbands/bags and gear. How adorable and fun.

Enjoying the trip report so far. Midori really likes the Monster's Inc. Hipster..

The guy in the picture looks like he needs a new pair of glasses or he just ate something he did not like. Your right, you wonder how many family vacation pictures we are in with crazy looks and faces.

Hi Mike! Yah - I saw that guy too... And I LOLed at his expression. I pray I am never in anyone's TR and making faces - well - unintentional faces that is.

It was so fun to crash AoA - it was almost like a theme park unto itself. LOL You'll want to stay tuned for my next update then...

Hahaha... That was the ONLY time the busses worked so well in our favor - I should have known, as soon as it happened, that something was up. LOL

I think we figured it out yesterday via text - nothing made sense until then. I think, what happened is that you all were waiting at the FQ bus stop - but since the driver went to POR to pick up, he dropped us at the POR stop, which was RIGHT NEXT to the AoA stop... We were literally on the ground outside the bus for less than 20 seconds. I should have known the moment we pulled up - with the AoA bus next to us - that it was too good to be true. I love ya Suzi - I never would have gotten on that bus if I would have known you were there.

Oh - you know me - the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT is TOP SECRET for the time being... But I will continue to drop clues for you all, here and there, to keep you interested.

Hahaha... I love it!!! Maybe I shouldn't have mentioned anything? It's going to be a while before I can tell you all... and it's top secret news until then. But I will continue to drop clues, to keep you all in suspense (I've been told that I am good at that...)

Yay - so happy that we found Suzi too! Meeting up with her and her clan was one of the big highlights of our trip! I loved AoA... I think we could do a short trip there - but it would have to be short, we are way too used to the quiet and smallness of FQ.

I do have the Merida pics... I love how they turned out! There wasn't a Photopass photographer at the Fairy Godmother... But I have TONS of pics of the meet on my camera... Do you want me to email them to you?

Welcome! That is awesome! I love meeting fellow seamstresses on the The Dis! Super happy that you are following along. Bummer about your dd having a cold... V came down with a cold as soon as we got home - it was pretty nasty - she is still trying to get her ears to pop from the flight and we've been home for 10 days.

I totally agree... The heat was awful - but I feel the same way - right now we just don't have a choice. I cannot afford to let the girls miss that many days of high school for a trip - and it's SO MUCH WORK for them to get caught up... I hate going in the summer - but this was our first summer trip - and it was soooo nice not to have the stress of homework on us all the time.

Welcome!!! Glad to have you following along. Yes, I did meet Kathy - super happy about that! What were your trip dates??? Where did you stay??? Ooooh - maybe I should just go read your TR and see for myself? LOL

Yah - that was pretty rough... I don't wish it on anyone. And now the girls want to eat there again... Sigh - That was supposed to be a "once in a lifetime thing." LOL I hope you made it to your CRT ADR on time.

We did start to feel better - still bummed about the dessert party... but we will just have to do it again - it won't be the same with out Suzi and Erin there with their families, but...

************************************************** ********

Another nice day yesterday...

I am still finding it so strange to not have such a heavy workload in my sewing room... It's very hard to find things to occupy my time... I did spend some time up there yesterday though. As most of you know - as a rule - I try not to spend any time up there on the weekends, but as we were prepping for our trip - I was pulling 12 hour days/7 days a week for the last several weeks. So to be back to my normal schedule is very bizarre for me. So, just a few hours up there yesterday and I made a nice dent in my next BIG SUPER SECRET progect... No hints for it today - other than progress. But let's just say - the sooner I finish - the sooner you will get to see it.

I am still debating on ordering my Photopass CD... Then, as I was going through some photos on my phone yesterday - I found a TON of them I could have uploaded to my TR already... Really bummed about that. So, I think what I am going to do, is just edit those posts involved??? What would you do? Then I can just post a link to that post to let you all know it's been updated?

Today the girls and I are headed up to BFF's house. We have not seen her since we have been home from our trip. I am also bringing Alli's UP bag with me... It had an accident with her make-up on the trip home and it didn't win. I am so very sad about it - you all know how many HOURS I had into it - but I only found out the other day when she unpacked. It is very possible that I will have to rip the entire bag apart and remake it - I am hoping that I can at least save the panels with all the applique work on them - as that is where most of my time was spent. BFF is a whiz on getting stains out - so I am going to let her work her magic first. Thankfully I sprayed it down good with Scotch Guard before we left - so there is a bit of hope of saving it. Wish us luck.

That's about all for updates in my boring life...

************************************************** ********

Out-take... I had to pull this one out - even though it showed my drawing, the girls' faces were awful (even if one of them was intentional. )


Have a fantastic day everyone!

I forgot to add...

Yesterday, Alli created her own user name on The Dis... She plans to update my TR with some of the pictures she took on our trip. She is a bit nervous about this, and I don't know when she will get a chance to do it - as she wants to edit them all, so it may be weeks... But I wanted to let you all know that she may be around a little bit.
