Jen, so happy to have you here. Yes, those girls are cute. I am hoping we can at least say hello.

Somehow I missed Mary's intro. So glad I was able to pop back over! I do think our girls would get along so well!!! So glad that when we meet up with Kathy, you and the girls will mostly likely be there too!

I'm in shock. Yes, Mary's girls are adorable. And I have several DIS meets. I hope we can get them all in.

She snuck that in on you, didn't she Tammy? Well, since we will be glued together...the five of us...I'm sure Brenda will meet the girls.

Kathy and Mark's arrival day

I swore I would NEVER do two reports at the same time again, but here we are.

Tuesday, December 3

Andy will take Mark and I to O'Hare Airport very early in the morning. We will probably leave the house around 4:15 a.m. so we get to the airport and then Andy can get back to school (he'll be a permanent English teacher substitute by then). We have a 7 a.m. flight, scheduled to arrive in Orlando at 10:25 a.m.

I am sure we still stop at Starbucks at the airport for some much needed coffee and breakfast, and then hopefully board an on-time flight.

Once we arrive at MCO, we will go and get our luggage and then go to the Budget Rental counter. After my horrid experience with the buses when I was with Mary and the girls in June at the Beach Club Villas, I was taking no chances this trip and we got a car (and a good deal on it too).

Then we will drive here (all pictures borrowed from internet):






our home for the next five nights.

Once we get checked in (I doubt our room will be ready), we will drive to DTD where we will pick up our AP's. Yes, I renewed them two weeks before all the nonsense started at Mark's job and the fact that he might not have one at the end of the year. But at least they are paid for. I'll also pick up my Tables in Wonderland card so I have it for this trip, my girls trip and Mark's and my summer trip.

Once we have our renewed AP's and TIW in hand, we will drive here:



We will be meeting Mary and the girls at the park.

Up next, lunch and who want's to party?

I am here. Great intros Kathy.

Great intros Mary.

Sounds like a good start to the first day. I don't blame you renting a car. If I stayed at one of those resorts I would too.

The Boardwalk is on my wish list of places to stay. That is sooo cool you will be staying there.

The buses do seem to be getting worse and worse each trip... you renting a car has me definitely wondering if it wouldn't be a good idea for me in January.

I am sorry to hear about the risk of Marks job. That is never fun. At least you do have the AP's paid for. I suppose that helps cut stress in some ways, yes?

Here I am....thanks for the FB heads up! And already caught up! This is going to be such a fun trip, Kathy! How did you ever get BWV for those dates? BWV is the first to book for December - for you!! I enjoyed my stay there, although it is not my favorite. Be sure to request a room near the only set of elevators or you could be in for a walk that is almost half way to the Studios to get to your room! Talk about long and winding halls...we were about 5 rooms fine the elevators...no noise at all. It was a great location...nice balcony...view of the entrance which was fine.

I am sooo disappointed that I will not be there to finally meet you and Mark after all these years of DISing. Had to cancel December because I am still in this darn boot and cannot walk around WDW at all. Hopefully another time...but you know I will be there vicariously though your PTR and TR!

Love the plans so far!

Life is short Kathy, I am happy you renewed your APs.

And staying at Boardwalk!! One of these days I WILL stay there. (Okay, pick your mouth up off of the floor...twice in one day!)
