Awww, I wish you lived 1,200 miles closer too and could have a DISmeet with us in Chicagoland! Someday.....

Ugh, that stinks about the MB's. Incorrect finger scan my patoot. I'm going to call that "I'm too lazy to actually try to assess what could have happened..."

Woo! Good not having a wardrobe malfunction. Bike shorts under dress, check! I'll have to remember that.

Shoo fly don't bother me just makes me think of Encino Man....."cause you belong to my friend Link..." Random....I know.

Agree! Bah for the CM who didn't show his Disney charm. And yes, Em's quick response averted another wardrobe malfunction!

Love TE and between the two Mexican TS restaurants I can't decide which I like better. Actually.... I prefer San Angel for now since I now am in love with La Cantina.

Wouldn't that be awesome! Chips and magaritas with another CM pal!

I definitely also took the moment to walk through the sand on the beach upon arrival day, it was magical and that place is now home….along with akl and Pop, and AoA, and you know, Florida in general. Bahaha! BUT there is something amazing and perfect about the yc!
I'm with you. I have a few "favorites" for different reasons. But YC will always be a little more special than the others for obvious reasons. I'm with you for AKL though.

When you make your home in Florida that will be so glorious!!!

I know... someday. I'll be interested to see how it goes.

Yeah, patoot! Bah, what a sour mood he was in.

Yes, bike shorts, the solution to any potential Marilyn Monroe moment! It works. Not that I want anyone to see my bike shorts but it's better....

Ha ha! You are a great movie quote gal. Love it!

I had a problem with my finger scan in December. They told me that I needed to be sure to put my finger in at the exact same point every time because of my fake nails!

Ha ha! I can't remember now if it was just me that had the issue for which the nails would make complete sense or if Em had an issue as well. I asked Em and she doesn't remember. Oh well, we'll blame it on the nails.

Oh boy, I have a lot of catching up to do! Luckily your tr's are so good, so it's kind of a treat really!

Your YC room is gorgeous! I absolutely love it!

Then yay for ToT time! That really is the best ride! And then a quick jump over to RnRC! Perfect - except that wardrobe malfunction!! Oops!

How cute that little duckling was tickling you!! I had this one trip where the adult ducks kept biting my friends toes on separate days even! It was too funny.

I agree that TSM has got to be the most valuable FP+ ressie. I loved not having to be there at rope drop or miss out. However…I think I've heard that now you have to pick between that and RnRC? I haven't followed too closely (I'm still too sad about no Disney trips planned) but if so, having to choose sounds horrid!

I was surprised by how well they can teach just about anyone how to draw in Animation Academy. It was rough for me being a perfectionist as well though. The other problem is that I tend to press down SUPER hard so even with erasers provided, it never seems enough.

Man, you guys were in and out of Epcot so much! Must be so convenient to stay at those Epcot resorts!

Love how they do the movies on the beach! Maybe one day I won't run the family too tired and we can make it to one!

Oops... the baby would have been bigger this summer. That picture was from 2012. I was just point out that sometimes you see something really different. Sorry I wasn't clear. And in my TR I explained that I did the Safari twice in a row because of technical difficulties but the baby rhino wasn't out the second time. So really each safari is different, but worth it in my mind. It's totally a must do!

What a nice evening you had. I love WS pictures at night, especially less crowded ones. I wonder if I'll ever take any! I tend to want to and then get too lazy to wait and take them because I'm too tired. Next time I will because the wait for the bus after illuminations is atrocious!

And so jealous of watching the movie on the beach in the warm sand. We have a ton of snow and a windchill of -25 (-13 in F) today, so I am looking at that warm sand and totally dreaming!

I get so annoyed when I hear of people having MB problems and CMs giving them attitude... It seems like there are still SOOOO many bugs within them, that the CMs need to be prepared for that, by not blaming the guests, but rather blaming Disney for not getting it right before they released it. Soooo frustrating!

I am so happy you were able to get into IG and to Mexico on time... You did get a fantastic seat! Awesome!

Loved the movie in the sand... And I know exactly how you feel... I have much the same experience when I sit on a certain bench in MK, sipping a Dole Whip and watching the parade pass by while the castle changes colors... With all the little princesses running by, trying to see the parade, and my girls by my side... That is my favorite memory - and one I always try to recreate!

Thanks for a great update Brenda, and Happy New Year to you!

Not silly at all --- it actually sounds like perfection! That nighttime walk from Epcot to YC is so beautiful!

The finger scan? Really? Everyone knows how fickle Disney's IT department is- said with love, but come on! Their computer systems seem so delicate! But I'm sure in the moment it must be easier to blame the user.

But that leads to me another question I've had for you- Since you are a DL gal, do you have to keep up with the Gold card for DL AND a magic band for WDW? Something random that I wondered about…

fun update ... you know you are at the park late when it takes you a minute to realize that the park is, um, closed

and I totally get where you are coming from - normal every day things combined with Disney touches make them much more special. Like, ok, watching a movie, no big deal, but to be there with your daughter, while watching little girls in princess dresses, and a blast from Fantasmic! all combine to make it much more than "just a movie"

I think you are right since DHS has the tiered FP selections. I actually gave up a TSM FP+ this last trip and unlike a hard FP ticket I couldn't give it away.

I would be surprised if they could teach me to draw. It would be annoying for the rest of the class if I kept having the animator go back over his instructions several times before I "get it".... it's probably best if I just sit that one out.

Man, you guys were in and out of Epcot so much! Must be so convenient to stay at those Epcot resorts!

Exactly. If we stay near Epcot, we play there more often. Another reason why I love split stays to make it easier to make park plans when I don't have to travel far.

Ha ha! I'm picturing you guys falling asleep on the beach watching the movie. It would be nice if they had more than one showing or a double feature but heck, it's not all about what I want.

Thanks for getting caught up Kimmy! I hope you, Garrett and Landon have a wonderful New Year celebration!

Aha! I wonder how big the baby is now. I have no idea how quickly they grow. At least momma rhinos don't have to potty train their young.

I really need to do the safari again since we had an absence of elephants in August.

Thank you! Ack! Those crowds after make me decide to either hit the exit early or just wait around until the crowds have thinned out.

Oh my!! That's some COLD. Although I think snow is lovely I'm not prepared to spend an entire winter in it. Stay warm!

Hi D~! And Happy New Year to you and your family as well!

I don't disagree with you!! I've had issues with them for both trips however, I do feel they are an asset. BUT... they needed to beta test them more in-house before the roll out or give some type of incentive to participate such as a FP choice a day... something.

We were so lucky and we didn't ask for a window seat so it was just good timing.

Yes! You get those special moments that are worthy of being re-created or at least treasured. Especially when they involve family that helps to shape those memories.

Enjoy your New Year celebration tonight!

Hi Julie! Thank you. I can't quite communicate how lovely it was so although it may fall short in words, in my mind it was perfect.

And yes, I agree, YC is just so beautiful. Especially at night with all the twinkly lights.

Ha ha!! Your hubby sounds like mine.. why do I need thousands of photos from Disney trips. He's so silly.

At least for the CM with the tablet thingy he launched into accusation mode without me saying anything... The 5 year old in me felt indignant and wanted to stick my tongue out at him.

Hi Phil! I wasn't done playing at Epcot so I have no idea why they decided to shut the park down on me.

You get it! Now that you have kids I'm sure you've started to have those moments as well where you realize you add in adorable Olivia or Peter and memories are shaped in a new and touching way.

Wishing you and your family a wonderful New Year!
