I had no idea it was THAT big. It's so awesome!!! A little bit of everything in there. Oooh, that would be fun to go house hunting with them! Are they looking to be in the Orlando area? My Mom is looking at Leesburg/Fruitland Park area. That is so cute and sad about Madeline wanting you to make sure Minnie's house stays there! I remember Henry going through a stage where he thought I had all the power in the world to make things different, the way he wanted. So cute! I sure do wish they would keep Minnie's though, just relocate it! You are welcome! I'm sad to see it go, but excited for what we are getting! I think it will be just what she needs - even if the relationship doesn't work out. Right now she lives in a small town full of young families and old people. She's single, and VERY much an "on the go" person. My sister and her kids have lived with her for years, and she's very, very, very ready to NOT be living with them anymore - she loves them, but she's done and wants to be a real Grandma to the kids again, instead of like a second parent since they all live in the same house. It's a tough situation, I'm so glad it has an end in sight finally! Ahhhh! You are going this week! Have a WONDERFUL time! And yes, if you can, peek into Toon Town and take a walk through Minnie's house - it's cute and will only take a few minutes, it will be gone soon!! Take a ride on Barnstormer too, it's more wicked than it looks! The Potato Head parts are the BEST! I'm already planning on getting another box, or perhaps the big Tater this time and just fill it with everything. Henry plays with it almost every single day (and I want to buy another Tater Head so I can play too! ) How very cool that you can use them at school too! No worries on being late!! We just LOVED the BWV! We are staying there again in Feb/March (along with a split at BLT). The BWV is pretty low on points too, which is nice because if you rent for there it won't cost as much! I think it's a fantastic location. People don't like the lack of true counter service, but Epcot is around the corner, so lots of options there instead. I'm so far behind on the DIS too! Henry is over at a friends house today - and is napping there - so I get a few hours to myself at home. The house is a disaster, but I'm sitting here DISing. I love it!! Minnie's kitchen is so, so fun! When we were there last time it was a lot more crowded, and Henry was younger, so we didn't take as much time there to play. This time Henry did it all - and I had no idea the cake in the stove inflated and the pots and utensils above moved. It was so cute! I am really loving some of the new merchandise Disney has out, like the coral shirt. It's Mickey, yet has style. I just wish it wasn't the SAME stuff in EVERY shop. I get why they have changed it to that, but still...I miss some of the unique things! It really is a neat area - I'm sad and excited to see it go. I've said it a bazillion times already, but I'll say it again - I wish they would keep the houses! They are so cute! I'm STINKIN' excited about holidays in Florida! They will have to be split with Minnesota for Joe's family, but just to think about doing all that and spending Christmas there makes me very !! There are so many things in those houses to see, isn't there? So many little details! I love that! I'll be bummed to see them go. I read all about those rumors last night! (on another message board that I think I actually saw you reference on another thread....I think it was you!) I was pouring over it all - LOVING IT! I think the Dumob/Circusland will be very cute...I also think Minnie and Mickey's house could fit in there, along with a Mickey/Minnie Meet & Greet, just fine.....! I truly wish they would keep them. The houses, along with the Barnstormer, the giftshop and Dumbo would be a nice start to a small land. The houses are cutesy enough to sorta fit into the Circusland, don't you think? If Snow White is open in Feb/March still I'm gonna ride it - I never have! I would hate to see it go before I get a chance to experience it. But not a huge loss to me being that I don't know what I'm missing. We've just avoided it because it's "scary" and with a little one it's not something we tend to go for! The Mine Ride sounds AWESOME. It's going to be all so incredible, even with just the additions of the dueling Dumbos, Little Mermaid and the Beast's Castle. I also noticed on that same message board they were talking about P.I. work happening! I gotta dig more into that, but it sounds exciting!
