Awww, how awesome of Courtney to send you those pictures! She's great, she sent me one on Instagram too.

Of course you were so enthralled with the violin guy. I mean, what else could you possibly have been watching during the show in Morocco?

I've made the fatal mistake of buying a frozen coke before planning on getting into One Man's Dream. And then getting completely turned away. DENIED!

Did you enjoy the drink at least?

My heart just melted. Riley was asking for you.

That story about the little girl looking behind her and sitting down is just awesome. That means her parents are doing a great job teaching her how to be polite.

I just loved everything about this update. Some people really are worth melting for.

Reminds me of one of my favorites...
" If there ever comes a day when we must be apart, keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever"...

Can't believe we're almost to the end of another TR....it's been great. Can we somehow just figure out how to make going to WDW and writing TR's your full time job? What am I going to do while I wait on your next trip? It's your TR's that inspired me to do my first PTR and I hope to do a full TR after my September trip. Please forgive me if my layout is similar to yours. They just look good that way! Thanks for the great reading. Looking forward excitedly and sadly for the end.

Hi Rob

I haven't been on the boards for a while but I'm back and caught up! You are such a sweet guy and Riley is so lucky to have spent some time in Disney with you!

So sad that this report is almost done! When is your next trip so we can get another installment??

Well first, THANK YOU SO MUCH for reading and WELCOME!!!! It's close to ending, BUT, there is an upcoming intermission, so not too soon.

Thank you again. I really really appreciate that. I do have a potential trip planned (in my head anyway) and another besides that, so hopefully many more TR's to come.

Ahh the Gran Fiesta Tour! Seriously one of my favorite attractions I think, there's just something so Epcot about it!

I love that sweet little girl who sat down so people could see behind her, you really don't see that much in Disney!
Hehe, well I admit that was sort of planned Jen. There is not much that I would skip Wishes for, that's for sure. This was super easy. Illuminations is not a bad substitute either. You're quite right.

I really did enjoy it. Of course, the company didn't hurt.

Oh me too. It was such a sweet thing to see. I will never forget it.

Hi Grace. I'm sad as well. This really was my favourite trip ever and I hate to see it end.

And I gotta say, your update was the perfect thing to read tonight. I've been away from the DIS for a few weeks now, and since Alex has left I was feeling a little sad this evening. I figured reading some stories about Disney was just the thing I needed to cheer me up. And your update did exactly that. It reminded me that Disney is so much more than a theme park. And these boards are so much more than a place to talk about one's vacation. Thanks for that.

I think watching IllumiNations on your last night was a wonderful choice. If anything, it wasn't what you expected. And aren't those unplanned game changers some of the best times?
Alicia, sappy is totally acceptable here. Believe me, I tear up at that all the time even still. And I'm going through that same withdrawal now. It was a perfect ending (though not quite over) to the night for sure. Bitter-sweet to say the least.
Awww Alicia, that is so sweet. My God, you're gonna make me cry. Oh wait... too late. Disney is very much more than a "theme park". I'm so glad that there is a place like this to share those stories and experiences. And even more grateful for the people here (like you) to share those stories with.

Honestly, it was perfect. Carrie really loves Illuminations, and while I still love Wishes more, there is no way it could have topped that evening. No Way!

Oh my goodness Danielle, it genuinely made my day. I love that she sent you one too. So incredibly thoughtful.

Exactly. He was so charismatic.

Just the worst feeling. I'd be a little more ok doing that for One Man's Dream ONLY because it's not as time sensitive. I would have thrown it out if it was the last Voices show of the day.

I did, despite the straw. It's quite yummy. Plus because the next show was a little away, I got to really enjoy it.

Mine too. God, I get so teary thinking about that moment. That one just completely stole my heart.

It really was awesome too. I was just so shocked, impressed, and touched my it. Just wonderful.

Awww thanks Danielle. I have been itching to post it for so long too. She is absolutely worth melting for. And having just seen them again makes reliving it even more special and hard at the same time.

So very true Brenda. I still feel so bad since we had talked about seeing Wishes that night too. There is nothing else that would have dragged me away, but I just had to go. That final moment will forever be part of me. But, you know the night didn't end there...

Hopefully I will get that prepared really soon. In the mean time, I hope you and Em have a WONDERFUL visit in World!!!

Thanks Jake. Oh my would I ever love THAT job! Hopefully the next trip isn't too far away. Wow, I'm so honoured that you said that. THANK YOU!!! I'm so sorry that I haven't made it over to your PTR, but I will absolutely be joining in when you do the TR.

Well hello right back at ya!!

So glad to welcome you back. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for all your kind words. Believe me, it is I who is the lucky one in that relationship. No question.

Aww thanks. Well, I do have the mini Niagara TR coming very soon (just have to get organized). AND, there may be another Disney trip as well. Still not for sure though, but maybe.

Overall it was great. But WAY too short. I will have all the stories coming up soon though.

Nice parade pics.
LOL about Brenda starting her trin 2016.
I don’t think I have ever seen anyone sit for the show or the parade except for the one son the curb.
We were in Epcot this day but not till later.
Not familiar with whom you met.
I like Voices of Liberty but not a must do every trip but still enjoyable. Glad you liked them a lot.
Glad you did make it back for the final show.
Nice Illuminations pics.
I am all caught up again.

Rob, I think only one word sums up this last update: wow. And now I'll add a bunch of these because they surely seem fitting as well

Your update had me tearing up... unbelievable what the Dis has done for us lucky Disers, isn't it?

I know! Clearly you posted that update just for me so I would not be left in suspense.

That's only if we're lucky.
You know, I don't even often see them sit on the curb.
Just missed again.
All DISers.
Oh my goodness, I LOVE them!!!! Definitely a must do for me.
Oh me too. As I said, I LOVE them.
Thank you!!

Awww Tracy, I would never ever ever change that night. That was a Disney memory that will be hard to top.

Aww that's so sweet. I was too, believe me. I'm just in awe of the gifts the DIS has given me.
