My deepest sympathy to you and your family. I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child. My brother died back in '93, just shy of his 21st b'day. I think of him everyday. He's always in my heart. I hope this trip will be just what your family needs, and you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday together.

Thank you. Someone said we shouldn't try to run from the holidays,that we should just face it. Easier said than done...

Glad to hear that about Teppan Edo,I wasn't sure about that one.

Yes, magic bands became available to us yesterday. So now I am trying to figure all that out..

55 days until we go!!!!


Today I got to customize our magic bands.
I have to get my mom a MDE so that we can connect her to our reservations and decide on FP+ selections. I really hope Disney continues to allow people to use regular FP while we are there. Three fast passes per day are not enough for my crew. Also, Thanksgiving Day is blocked off on mine to use FP+. Not sure if that's a mistake or it cant be used that day.

How exciting!!

Can't wait until our trip is closer so we can customize magic bands. I really wanted a pink one, but crazy hubby wants that color.

My son used to say "real men wear pink"

I didn't ask my crew about colors. They will have to live with my choices.

That is what my husband says. The only time I can get my son to wear pink is on Pink day at school for Breast Cancer awareness day. I found him a cute shirt at walmart. It has a stick figure with muscles and says Tough guys wear pink. He is okay with that one

Good call picking all the colors yourself

So sorry for your loss. I really can't imagine how hard that must be for all of you. You guys need extra pixie dust

It looked like you pulled some magic to make everyone happy with those ADRs! I look forward to see if more.

Great job on the ADR's! You're making me hungry! I hope you're going to do a TR when you get back because I want to hear all about them.

I love that you're going with a big group! You are all going to have so much fun.

Did you do something fun for Peyton's birthday??

And WOOHOO about the Magic Bands!

July 1st for 15 days at SSR, this year the girls both do big exams so they finish school a month early. It's saving us about $3,000 going this early as flights are cheaper

3 aren't enough for us either, I'm reading as much info as I can but my plan at the moment is to do rope drop with no FP's then schedule my FP+ for later in the day. When we last went you could still use FP's late so our normal touring will have to change dramatically

I don't know if I will do a trip report. Last time I did one I spent a lot of time on my trip taking notes. Then again I may do one because I love looking back at that report. the kids were so little!

I agree about the FP+. Its going to change how we do things and we are going during a very busy time.
I might be in Disney when you are! Rae and I are getting AP passes and are going several times this summer when all the big kids are busy!


We went out to dinner on Peyton's birthday. Today we are having his "family" party. This year instead of the normal 20 people though...we are having over 50 people for a cook out! I was feeling so sad that his brother isn't here with him to celebrate(their birthdays are three weeks apart)I kept saying yes when he asked to add people.I am very thankful that it is a beautiful day.
