    Thanks Sophia! I have being reading along on the cake chatter threads. That's where I have learned it is so hit or miss with people being happy with the cakes. I was told that it is better to give a general direction that super specifics like I want three roses...20 mickey heads...etc. I gave a general direction and I am letting them run wild with it. Hopefully it will turn really well!! :wizard:

    Thanks Wendy for the recommendation (and taste at Emily's birthday party). We were really impressed--nice and moist. :goodvibes He has played with it a bit here and there, so far he does! He has not really played with it too much yet but wants to before Disney. Of course he is planning on taking it with us! :goodvibes

    I think you should!! She will love it--especially since she will be able to read it herself. :banana: You know I keep tweaking our ADRs but we are happy with them. Now we just need to see if they happen once we are down there. :thumbsup2

    You're fine Mary!! :flower3: We knew we have chosen to spell it differently than the traditional spelling. She knows how to spell her name, so that is what is important.

    You did read that we have booked a trip for next September/October!! Are you coming!?! I will be so excited to meet you!! :dance3: It was great meeting Leanne and her family. We will be looking forward to seeing them again. :goodvibes

    Lilian has a dress that I picked up for her. I had her try it on today for the first time and she called it a lady dress. :lovestruc She asked me if her lady dress is going to Disney. She looks so cute in it!

    Thank you!! I hope she is on the upswing tomorrow now that we have medicine to kick the ear infection out.

    Stephanie,
    My biggest advice to you with the GG is to make sure to schedule a little time for just your family. Maybe its just you and your DH and your DD going for a swim or something, but I think some alone time is really important!! I really like the idea of you and Lilian having some special mommy & me time when the guys are golfing!!! I would love to have a couple hours alone with my kids in the MK!!! I think that would be really special!!

    We scheduled this GG a little different. Last time we all did EVERYTHING together and had no idea what we were doing!! This time thanks to my DIS Research, I have it all planned out! We know what parks we will go to and where we will be eating and then with all that time between meals, people can go off on their own or stick with the group. We also have it so the last 3days is just my immediate family.

    It sounds like you have this all planned out so nice. They will really appreciate it - trust me!!! It makes the vacation so much nicer knowing where you are going and where you will eat!!

    We did BBB when my DD was younger and it was so much fun! The pictures of the reveal are priceless:goodvibes Make sure you have a Photopass guy there for the reveal. I can't wait to hear about it. I hope Lilian feels better really soon.

    I am so excited that you booked October Stephanie!!!! That's great!! I plan to book at AKV at my 11 month mark and move to BCV if anything is open at the 7 month mark. Mary is planning on joining us too. The only thing we need is to get Nickie that job making the big bucks and we are all set. :cool1:

    Your trip is so close now!! How exciting!!!! :banana::banana::banana:

    I hope Lilian is feeling better and I absolutely cannot wait to see the BBB pics. She is going to have so much fun. The big reveal always makes me teary. Can't wait to hear all about it Stephanie! :goodvibes

    I have no idea if that is going to be possible! :headache: I think we are pretty much going to have family with us at all points--unless during our midday breaks they do not come to pool with us. :idea: Even then though, I think my Dad and BIL will be with us unless they stay to watch a tv show or take a nap. :sad2:

    MY MIL asked if we are going to give an itinerary out to them. :rotfl: I said I would give them something that says Where in the World will Lilian Be that first day. ;)

    Thanks for the vote of confidence!

    They are sensitive to caffeine or so they say, which is why they don't eat chocolate. :rolleyes: I can bargain with them and say that we have the Halloween party that evening so their sleep won't be affected. :rotfl2: :thumbsup2

    Thanks Jenny!

    I'm excited to Leanne. It is not a definite yet though because it will depend on my school schedule next fall. I hope to be in my PhD program at that point. Too many variables over the next year. BUT, we wanted to have it booked and are planning it.

    I'm really looking forward to our trip. I have reservations, but I am trying to get over them. :rolleyes: I think BBB will be a priceless experience!!

    Stephanie! I can't believe you are in the teens!!!!!!!!! I am so excited for you, sorry about Lilian's ear infection, but I agree with you, if it has to happen better now than later!! That was my worry with the kiddos too leading up to our trip!

    Those invitations are AWESOME! Maybe have Lilian hand deliver the tea invites?? My parents (especially my mom) LOVED the afternoon tea and commented how she would love to take Helen! I think it will be a very special afternoon and I think it's great you are getting her the doll too! That will make it extra special! Her birthday cake sounds so yummy, we never travel to WDW during an event, I might have to change that just so I can order a cake!! Cake is my favorite food!!! The Ariel dress is really cute too! She is going to look adorable! BBB sounds like so much fun!!! I hope to get Helen there too next trip!! I can't wait to hear all about it!!!:goodvibes:goodvibes

    I have started classes again for the fall semester. I will be crazy busy, but at least I enjoy staying busy. I have been slowing ticking away at things I want to do for our trip as well as need to get still. I am not going to get every single little thing I wanted done, but that is fine with me! I am happy with what I have managed to get done and how the trip seems to be shaping up. Without further ado…

    17: Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!

    [​IMG]

    I am so happy that we are going to be able to attend MNSSHP! It seems like a great ending to Lilian’s actual birthday. It is the first party of the year, so I am not quite sure what to expect. I need to read a little more of last year’s thread regarding the party.

    Lilian has a couple costume options, so we will see what she ends up wearing. DH and I decided against costumes, with it being so hot this time of year. Things we are looking forward to during MNSSHP:

    --Meeting Sophia and Joe
    --Trick or Treating in Magic Kingdom!
    --Boo to You Parade
    --HalloWishes
    --Meeting Snow White and the Dwarfs
    --Meeting the Princesses and Princes
    --Picture of Cinderella’s Carriage but that may not be possible since it is rumored it will not be out this year.
    --Riding HM​

    For your viewing pleasure tonight, I have a video of something I hope to catch (and get a great picture of), the Headless Horseman!

    And in case you are interested, here is a video of the Boo to You Parade.

    Anyone experienced MNSSHP? What are your favorite parts and do you have any tips you want to share? :goodvibes
