    those commercials were cute! I liked the last one the best...well, and of course the one with the dogs! :goodvibes

    My favorite Disney commercial is the one where the kids are sleeping and Cinderella's horse-drawn carriage is coming down their street. :cloud9:

    We don't get Disney commercials here.....well, not for the parks...just for DVDs. :lmao:

    Thanks for sharing.

    Glad you guys liked them :) I was lurking on the boards last night and wander into a thread that was basically parents vs childless/child-free adults and someone started linking a couple of those commercials in response to someone saying something about "there are no disney commercials without kids in them". I just thought those were really sweet :)

    Those commercials are great...

    I wish we had been able to do two parties, maybe next time!

    I got this idea from Nermel9, and it's actually working out kind of difficult for me :lmao:

    Top Twelve "New" Things

    Because I used to be a CM, there really isn't much that's "new" to me or that I haven't done before that isn't related to food. So these are twelve "new" things I haven't done that I'm looking forward to and I'm going to try not to keep it to just food. But it'll mostly be about food, since I've done just about everything else on my itinerary at one point or another. These are in no particular order.

    12. Staying at Pop Century for more than two nights!

    [​IMG]

    When I stayed at Pop with my parents in 2004, I think we were only there for two nights. On my solo trip in 2006, I stayed off-site.

    11. Using DME!

    [​IMG]

    It just seems so convenient :) On next year's trip, we'll have a rental car, so we won't be using DME on that trip.

    10. Breakfast at Crystal Palace!

    [​IMG]

    I've only ever had lunch at CP, so I'm looking forward to this :)

    9. Having two guaranteed seats to myself on a plane.

    [​IMG]

    Yes, it was expensive and I don't know if I really need two, but meh. I have them and I'm actually looking forward to it because I'll have more room :lmao:

    8. Dinner at Raglan Road!

    [​IMG]

    I've wanted to have dinner here for YEARS, but I've never been able to until now :)

    7. The dining plan!

    [​IMG]

    I know a lot of people rip on the DDP, but, honestly, if I wasn't on it, I'd be eating quick service all week. With it, I can eat at other places because I'm not worried about if I have the money to cover anything but a tip. So I'm really looking forward to it :)

    6. The Food and Wine Festival!

    [​IMG]

    For me, it'll be the Food and Water Festival, but the principle's the same :laughing:

    5. Lunch and dinner at Liberty Tree!

    [​IMG]

    I've been in the building before, but never eaten there (those bathrooms are so tiny and always crowded and such a pain to clean :headache:).

    4. Eating at Tony's!

    [​IMG]

    I've never been and I've heard mixed reviews, but it just looks so cute inside!

    3. Breakfast at the Pop Food Court!

    [​IMG]

    I've had dinner there, but not breakfast :lmao:

    2. MNSSHP!

    [​IMG]

    I've technically been before, but not as a guest. I was a CM working it :lmao: So I'm really excited about this :teeth:

    1. Meeting Sharon and Ruthie and Alison and Heather!

    [​IMG]

    Yes, I know that's not really us :lmao: But still :)

    :lmao: You know, that didn't even occur to me until you pointed it out? I dunno why, either :lmao:

    I think I'm missing the punch line here...but that's okay.

    It is a fun top 12 list and I'm at the top :woohoo:. Thanks! But that's a lot to live up to. I hope reality matches up with expectation....:scared1:

    :lmao: The Alison I meant was Simba22, who I for some reason called Alison instead of Ali.

    You are at the top of the list! :lmao: But yeah, I'm looking forward to meeting you :)

    Yes, please do! I'll PM you my #! It doesn't have to be exactly when you land that you text me, just whenever you have a chance, I'm just curious how your flight is gonna go, and if anyone who's big has a problem! :rotfl:

    Love your list! :) I love breakfast at CP, it's so good and the Pooh characters are awesome! And I love the Dining Plan, I think it's definitely worth it, we would be eating QS the whole time too if we didn't do it! Tony's is fun, I think Mama Melrose has better food but Tony's is definitely cuter inside! :cool1:

    Thanks! :goodvibes I remember liking it before, and I'm alone, so there was no reason to stay at a mod or deluxe :lmao:

    I'm sure you know already, but I PM'ed you back :lmao: I'll definitely let you know if anyone else big on my flight has a problem, but I have a feeling that an FA might stick them next to me to share my fat seat, even though I paid for it. :confused3

    I'm sure I'll like breakfast at CP :) If I don't, well... I'll like hugging Eeyore :lmao: I really do like the dining plan. I think it's great, especially since then I don't have to worry about how much something is, I just have to leave a tip :) I can get the $20 steak OR the $10 cheeseburger :lmao: Or something healthier :rolleyes1 I looked at Mama Melrose, but I'm only spending one day at DHS, so I wanted to go to Sci-Fi :) We might put that on our list for the 2011 trip, though :)

    Congratulations for 10 days and online check-in tick marks! :thumbsup2

    I wonder if I should NOT do a to-do list? :rotfl2:
    I could either write a NOT list or NOT do one...
    Decisions, decision!

    But I need to remember to get you some chocolates and tim tams AND get Ruthie some semi-decent Aussie Lamington (NOT the stuff that's being sold at F&W).

    Light Bulb! :idea:
    There we go...As I just put it down in writing in YOUR PTR, you just need to NOT forget to remind me! :teeth:

    :lmao: Well, I'll remind you if I remember :) I'm sure I'll remember :)

    I need to stop at Walgreen's before the airport, too, so I can get batteries and another memory card or two.

    Yay for 10 days and online check in!!! :cool1: :woohoo:

    I have to get my hair cut before Disney too...I'm wondering if I should do it now so it will grow out a little before I go or if I should wait until like, the week before to do it! :confused3 Sometimes it looks weird right after it gets cut!
