    That's great news! :thumbsup2

    I think everyone will be there the first weekend of December (7th & 8th), with most of us arriving a day or two before that and staying a day or two after.
    We are still in the planning process for DISmeet options, but should be able to send you something soon.

    Next we have the final update from another reporter, Krista (aladdinsgirl), who's trip also ended yesterday.


    She said, "We just got home from WDW! We were supposed to be home around 10:00 on Saturday night, instead we pulled into our driveway at 1:30 am Monday morning! Our flight Saturday night was delayed 3 hrs, which put us leaving Orlando at 11:00 pm. We decided to stay an extra night, and then our flight tonight was delayed as well. Mickey really wanted us to stay!" ;)



    "Anyway, the last meal I have a pic of is from Saturday at...

    And now for our First Update of the Day was sent to us this morning by StuffedwFluff.


    Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party



    She said, "I forgot to send you the update about our experience at the Wishes Dessert Party on Friday night. This is our second time doing it and we love it. We booked as soon as it opened so we got an amazing table. We didn't even have to stand up to see the fireworks, it was right against the railing."


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]




    "The desserts ranged from amazing to just okay. The chocolate dipped strawberries are always the size of your face and sooo good. The cheesecakes are always a hit with me, the tarts are just okay though. The ice cream station is fun and the cookies and brownies are soft and delicious. We didn't try everything, there is just way too much food to even think about eating."



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]



    "The fireworks were beautiful and it's so nice to view them from a balcony without having to squish with a bazillion other sweaty people. I will definitely make this a tradition."

    Ooooooh, another December hopeful. I am really hoping to be able to go. DH and I are seriously planning for me to (assuming of course that I rejoin the working world!). I had wondered about sharing rooms as well. I'd be up for it if someone wanted to!

    Love all the updates! Never thought of the HoB brunch before and now it is on my radar!
