His parents went to Universal and his dad said that the Men In Black ride (I think that was the one) was a little snug on him. The DH is convinced there will be a lot he can't do. He said that he won't go to Universal until he loses some weight, which he isn't even trying to do.

Well wish me luck. Tomorrow morning I start taking a morning walk. Then on the nights my mil feels like taking a walk, I'll walk with her as well. I just know she won't be able to do what I'll be able to do at first, so I want to make sure I get in at least one good work out per day.

Thank you for keeping the light on for us.....and sending out breadcrumbs for those of us, who need a little help getting back. Silly RC girl is now crying......
I am SO crying right now!!! I have to say starting the new thread was exactly what was needed to bring the magic back, and all the RCers back home. I was reading old threads and what fun that was!! I am so grateful the RC love brought us all back here, and I agree in spirit we are always together I wish the our Kaffinito was still active on the DIS! And I will be forever honored that you step, trusted me to carry on your reign. To me, you are the Queen, always and forever....*sniff, sniff, hugs*

Good luck! We are doing night walks, I call it Disney training for the kids

Thanks. I'm starting small. I'm just walking to the end of the street and back. It isn't a really short street, but it's not super long either. I may look for an app so I can track how much I am doing. Then on the night my mil feels like walking, I'll walk with her in the evenings as well. I really feel like I need to train for this upcoming trip. I'm used to having frequent stops because of the DH needing them. I won't have that with my friend since she'll be in a scooter. I need to be able to keep up with her.

Sounds like a great split with 2 resorts that I would love to stay at some day.

Oh yeah, I can already see me having to threaten him with making him stay home with Grammy instead of coming with us. Whenever we went to US & IoA the day before our cruise this March, he was sooooo whiny by the end of the day. I had to give him a piggyback ride to the car. I'm really worried about this "no stroller" thing.

WOW! My max is 2 resorts per trip.

This will only be our 2nd time doing a split stay, so let me ask all of you experts a question. On the 2nd day of our trip, we'll be moving from POFQ to SSR. I want to go to MK this morning and then (hopefully) our room will be ready in the afternoon @ SSR so that we can rest before MNSSHP. What is the best way to go about switching resorts? Should I just check in very early @ SSR even though I know my room won't be ready then & then proceed to MK opening? Or should I just wait to check in @ SSR when we leave MK that afternoon?

Ahhh, it's been too long!

MM, GG - yay for closing down the countdown! You're coming awfully close to the one month mark and then it'll be the single digit dance before you know it!!!

step - always good to see everyone!

wookie - I give you credit! I'm dreading starting to walk in August... we're already dancing in the 90s and I know August is only worse! Still, at least we'll be ready for the Florida humidity!

hallie, amanda, pas - always good to see how your trips are progressing! This will be our first MNSSHP (after missing the first one at DL 4 years ago by ONE DAY!!!) We are still back and forth about costumes. I wanted to try to do a group thing but DD is dying to be a princess so I think she and LO will be princesses and DH, friend, and I will do something. Lots of trio options!

Kohl - hoping you had an amazing time and we hear from you soon! Also hoping your fam is doing well!


THings have been a flurry of crazy around here. Now that we're talking about going to Japan there is a lot to do with timers going: we have to get the dogs screened 180+ days before leaving to avoid quarantine, girls and I need to be medically cleared, and DH needs to get orders so we can set up move and everything. It's so frustrating because each step can bring up something that cancels the whole thing (especially medical) so we haven't told anyone outside family and immediate friends until it's OFFICIAL.

On top of that, LO had all her one year appts (doing awesome!!!), DD6 is out with my ILs and I'm aching being apart for so long (two weeks!!!), and I have to run around and do everything that I couldn't do when ILs were here (clean house, return clothes, go through girls' clothes since they both grew 10 feet...)

Still, I did manage to fit some changing in. DD6 has wanted to do BBB one more time but DH and I thought twice was enough. Well, since it's looking VERY likely we will have our household goods packed up before Christmas, we're surprising her with BBB during our trip. We figure if all the grandparents want to throw in, we can do the whole glitz package, otherwise it's just hair and nails. That way we won't have to pack a bunch of gifts and ship or haul them on the plane.

Also, Disney screwing with the EMH has wonked out the first part of my Sept trip - we had PM EMH planned one night that isn't there anymore... and is the only night for MSEP and Wishes in 3 days, so we are swapping with one HS morning and that means ADRs have to change. So, instead of doing CP and GG on the same day (lots of character and too much food), we're doing CP, cancelling GG, doing Tusker the next AM, and planning on just grabbing QS and milkshakes at HS that night. I hate giving up GG (it's a staple!) but I just think this works better.

I hope all is well and everyone is having a great summer! and to everyone!!!

Hello! Finally found this thread!

We're getting better here, but boy it was rough. Glad to have it behind us now.

Anyway, Thursday is our FP+ and check in day! So not ready....

Time is ticking!

62 days to go!

Most of the highs over the next 10 days are in the triple digits here. The lack of Florida humidity is one of the things I will not miss on my girls only trip in December.

omg, it does sound crazy at your house. I hope you have some of your sanity left when you make it to Japan. I can't wait for y'all to get moved in, so we can start reading about all your adventures.

Glad you guys are doing better!!! No fun when everyone is down.

I am so excited for your trip! Not only does it mean mine is right behind but since you are taking your LO, I'm eager to read how it all goes over!!! Our LO has gotten into Minnie and Sofia the First over the last few weeks - she has helped herself to two of older sister's stuffed toys since DD6 has been gone - and I'm eager to introduce her to the magic!!!

We did dance with triples today (102 by my car's measure, 100 by the bank) and no storms until tomorrow... maybe. Bleh!

I won't lie - I had always heard about "Texas hot" and thought it was nothing like we get until we lived in Corpus... that was a totally different kind of hot than I'm used to! There is a definite scale of humid to dry (Florida -- Maryland -- Texas -- Wyoming -- Arizona) but because each area is so different (wet/dry/arid/elevated) each one is a total adjustment!

[/QUOTE]
I promise to write about each one - especially me trying to speak Japanese (I am awful with languages and have a slight southern drawl) DH is getting into it and wants to try to do Tokyo and HK and maybe catch Shanghai after it opens next year. He's like a kid - all i had to do is make it sound like a challenge and he's ready to 'win'... which means I win!
I have been scoping the resorts near Tokyo and I can guarantee I will be an RC in spirit even if not in practice (it can be harder to cancel in Japan). DH was thinking of trying to do Disney when we first get there before we put DD6 in school (and during a non-holiday time) and I'm already torn between on-property and off!

BTW - I highly, HIGHLY recommend checking out Tokyo Disney weddings on Google image search. They are AHHHHHMAZING! (I also love that lurkyloo - the cake chatter DISer - keeps popping up in the photos!!!) I am totally enamored with the wedding dresses!!!!!

Okay, back to RCing:
