    Dates - check! I think I am having drinks with the soccer moms on Thursday, so we will firm up our dates. I was thinking about waiting until 7 months and then booking 2 studios at OKW. I like the idea of the 2 beds instead of a pull-out couch.

    Great update, loving the tattoos, whereabouts in DTD are they?

    Tren-d looks like an awesome store, those chandaliers are gorgeous and look a Pook-a-Looz!! Love those :teeth:

    I never do get people that wear heels to theme parks, but then I suppose DTD doesn't count really.

    I think that's EXACTLY it- he KNEW we were coming!!! :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:


    I wanted to try the henna one, but it's not Disney, and I want a Disney themed tat when I'm in WDW- I am such a geek!!

    You're right- there is ALWAYS more to look at in Tren-D- best store they ever opened in DTD!!:thumbsup2 I love that there is so much unique stuff.


    I know other people took pics- there is more than just that one of him singing, I thought I remembered one with Joan & I being sung to....but maybe I was having an out of body experience and I'm just remembering it that way! :rotfl:

    The music was great, think Mozart electrified. And they were all so happy playing, they were really fun to watch.

    Those heels of hers make my feet hurt just looking at them!! :scared1:

    Hi!!!! :yay: I was wondering where you were....:goodvibes

    Ok- I need to know the story- why don't you like the SB slide? I like it because it seems longer and doesn't just loop around....it has the initial drop. :confused3

    And yes, we were having a good time. That tends to happen when you let women out of their CAGE! :rotfl2: At least, THESE women!! :rotfl:

    Thanks for reading!

    Fun night of tattoos and shopping! I've tried the henna in Morocco but will have to check out the Downtown Disney variety next time. Oh dear, your hottie was missing? I remember he was a highlight of the last trip. Where could he be???

    What are people thinking when they wear these types of shoes at WDW??? :confused3 Couldn't even imagine walking around in a pair of those for a minute. But, then again, thanks to people like that we get a little :laughing: out of it from pictures here on the Dis! Thanks for that Ellen!

    And is the Hot Man gone? Oh, no, what will you ever do?????


    Find another Hottie to look at I'm sure! :rolleyes1

    Aww....thanks! :blush: It will be even better when Kara or maybe even Cammie give their viewpoint...:surfweb:

    I will never say a word!! :rolleyes1

    I think Joan has to explain why i'm Shiny....I didn't come up with that one, she did. :rolleyes: And that picture of Joan is my FAVORITE!!! I don't know how she twisted her face that way, but WOW!!! :worship:

    We've been thinking about switching to OKW, too- especially with the refurb that's going on. It would be great to be so close to DTD, and the rooms are HUGE- I've heard. Although Pods & I were in a studio, and it was very big, too. Just curious- why do you do 2 studios instead of a 2 bdrm or 1 bdrm? How many people do you have?

    Huh??? What's a Pook-a-looz?? The Tats are at a TAT booth right in front of the huge WOD store.

    And I think DTD counts as a theme park where shoes are concerned- it's a LOT of walking in those high stilt heels! (There's another name for those pumps, but it's not DIS friendly!):rotfl:


    :lmao: That's right- OF COURSE we did!! :rotfl: Lots more fun to come.....:goodvibes

    I am doing 2 studios because I am point poor this year, unless I buy some more points and I still haven't found my perfect add-on contract. There will be 3 - 4 of us. I like the idea of the studios because everyone will have their own queen bed. The downside is that we will have 2 separate rooms so we won't be together in the am. I think a 1BR will be too small for 4 of us. IDK. I would love to get a 2BR, because they are the best, but I am trying to keep the point expenditure low on this trip.

    Anyway - it would be cool if we all end up at OKW. I gotta keep looking for that perfect contract. I want 100 - 120 points at SSR, March use year, and not stripped.

    Hi DisMoms!
    I remember your TR from last year-kids on a stick and Mr. Hottie. :lmao:
    OMG-Pumpkin Man & Purple Spandex Guy...:rotfl::scared1::rotfl:
    I agree that the Ditch is a great place to hang out-we lost a few hours in there our last trip. :rolleyes1
    Can't wait to hear more!

    So we three Jersey girls (ok- Joan's really from Iowa and lonnie now lives in Florida, but still...) were happy to see plenty of empty seats at many bars in RR. AND there was entertainment (we had always missed that in the past, lonnie & i, and Joan was making her first visit).

    [​IMG]

    But of course the REAL reason we were here was Hottie McHotness. Kara and Cammie had met him last year when Lonnie and I had gone back to Sanaa for dinner instead. I just went back to find his photo, but sadly, it's erased. :sad1: I did, however, just find my most favorite ITSK pic from last year-

    [​IMG]

    :rotfl: Anyway. HMH looks like Josh Duhmel, so, I guess you could say we were looking for HIM-

    [​IMG]

    We started out trying to ask the bartenders where Hottie McHotness was...and they didn't know who we meant! Can you imagine???? But then we said, "We're looking for Josh Duhmel!" and they IMMEDIATELY knew who we were talking about! Well, unfortunately, HMcH was on vacation that week (or hiding in the back in fear, we'll never know which is the truth) :rolleyes: so we wouldn't be seeing him at ALL (FWIW, he is one of the managers, just in case YOU would like to go see him sometime to say hello). DAMN! Guess we'll just have to drink away our sorrows with a pint o' Guiness!

    [​IMG]

    And we also decided it might be a good idea to eat a little something....so we ordered a Shephard's Pie to share.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Can I just say, there is a REASON for Pub Food...and Shephard's Pie is IT! Yum, yum, yum, it is the PERFECT thing to eat on a night of DISmom Boozy Debauchery!

    [​IMG]

    Somehow, we managed to rally for a photo- and doesn't Joan look so lovely? :cutie:

    [​IMG]

    Well, this whole time we had been getting texts from Kara- she had gone back to BCV trying to be a good girl, but once she got there she came to the conclusion she is a BAD girl, and should have stayed out with us! Cammie & Pam were ready for bed, and Kara was just...not! SO we paid our tab (minus the TIW discount again, yay!) and hit it for the BCV bus.

    So, we sat in the very back of the bus, we three, because that is clearly where we belonged after this night. There were maybe 10 others on our bus, and they were towards the back, too. And we thought, wouldn't it be nice to send Kara a special message? Soooo.....we decided to send her a video message- of us singing "You are the wind beneath my wings".


    ..


    ..





    Never have you ever seen a group of people stand up and run to the front of the bus so fast in your life!!! :rotfl: GEEZ. I think we SCARED 'EM!!! :rotfl2: Actually, i know we scared 'em!! It was HILARIOUS!!!!!! :lmao: Anyway, I am sorry if we offended anyone, and we promise if you were on the bus we were NOT dangerous....we just wanted Kara to know she is our hero....

    Upon our arrival to BCV, we noticed a gentleman rollling a luggage cart into the villas- with I think about 3 or 4 cases of beer on it. We asked if he needed any help, but oddly he said no, that he could handle it....:confused3
    Even after Lonnie & Joan had explained that they were VERY skilled at balancing cases of beer on their heads, and then drinking said cases, he still turned us down! Can you imagine??? I mean, look at them! They're PROS!

    [​IMG]

    For who knows WHAT reason, I found this side splitting, pants wetting funny (ok- we know why I found it so funny, but really, you need to humor me here...) (and I am not exaggerating that description of how hard I was laughing :blush:) and we were all hysterical by the time we got back to the room at 11:30-

    [​IMG]

    Where the four of us stayed up until 1am having a grand old time. :thumbsup2 It was such a fantastic night- I just love the DISmoms!!!

    In the morning....we're going to BOMA for breakfast!!!!! Then on to AK where I'm going to be a STAR!!!!!!

    Yes- it's sad the man has to take a vacation once in a while. Probably spent the whole week in the shower scrubbing off accumulated middle-aged Mom drool. :rotfl2: :rotfl2:

    Hey Chris!!! Can you post your HMH pic?? Didn't you seek him out last year, too? We were so sad he had to leave the country due to the fact he heard Kara was going to be back in town- next time we'll have to be more quiet about her arrival...:tilt:

    It would be cool if we were all there- one thing to think about with the studios- I've been reading that the new floors going into the refurbs are a little noisy in the 1 bdrms, and the studios are attached to them. They are putting a sleeper chair in the 1 bdrms so they will now accomodate 5 now, did you know that? Just a thought-

    Hi there and welcome back!!! :yay: hey- I think a few hours lost in the ditch is a few hours gained in Rita heaven!! :thumbsup2 A very smart move!!

    Okay, this is pure physics on my part.
    The more you weigh,
    especially wet, and the help of water
    squirting down with you,
    the faster you go.
    By the time I hit the bottom,
    I am shot out of that slide like a cannon.
    I hit the water and do a few rolls under the water.
    I'm so dizzy, I don't know which way is up.
    My nose is full, I'm dizzy, and I'm chocking and sputtering.
    Luckily the lifeguard looks away, and pretends it just another
    dumb one.:rotfl: (or I hope no one is looking).

    Pook-a-Looz is a the Queen of Hearts plush you were holding. Disney launched them not long ago. I think they are really adorable. Here's the official website for them (if you're interested)

    Looks like you ladies had lots of fun that night, would have loved to have seen everyones face on the bus with you guys singing away :laughing:

    Well, I can't personally speak for Kara, but maybe if we're very lucky she'll post sometime before the next DISmom trip and let us know!! popcorn::popcorn::

    I have had that experience on that slide- I have also had a slower one. It IS very fast!!!!! Probably why i like it! :rotfl:

    2 studios at OKW is 120 points for a weekend and 2 nights (I have no idea how long MEK's trip is). A one bedroom at OKW is less, even a one bedroom at Kidani standard view is I think 116? We're thinking about Kidani for next year, too- Lonnie, Kara & I love AKV, Joan would be happy to try it, and I think Pam is ok with it, but Cammie is not a fan. So not sure what we'll do yet- to me there are pluses and minuses to all of the resorts- I have enjoyed them all so far, though!!:thumbsup2

    [​IMG]

    And my HmH looks even BETTER! But it looks like Cammie deleted her pics from last year and I didn't get him with MY camera!


    Just so y'all know, if he was scared off it was NOT by me.... this time! I was back at the resort being, what did you call it Ellen? A "good girl?" :rotfl2:

    In case anyone is wondering, I DO have a copy of the Wind Beneath My Wings video.... but don't axe cause I'll never tell!!!!!

    OK, so here's what REALLY happened the night of Fultons.....

    It started with this....

    [​IMG]

    And ended with something like this....

    [​IMG]

    Any questions??? :rotfl2:

    Whoa!!!! Let me back up a bit.....

    First of all, I had the crab and lobster bisque plus about 2 or 3 or 12 loaves of bread with it.... :rolleyes1

    [​IMG]

    After all, I would need all that bread to sop up my chocolate milk intake for the evening. And even though I called it quits early, I KNEW my gals would be in the mood to pour me a double chocolate milk when they got back!!!

    Crazy that bartenders remember us when we return. I mean, you'd think they'd forget all about this....

    [​IMG]

    And this...

    [​IMG]

    But seriously, now that I think about it, who could ever forget THIS???

    [​IMG]

    I mean, dang! We are some hot mamas!!!!

    I'm sure they are still talking about Ellen picking up strange men.....

    [​IMG]

    AND

    [​IMG]

    Oh, she's truly enamored, eh? That was my Canadian accent there.......

    So after our shopping trip, I was about to hit the wall. Not just any wall, THE wall.

    So Cammie and Pam decided to head back to BCV with me while Ellen, Lonnie and Joan made sure we would NEVER be forgotten at Fultons! Remember, don't axe cause I won't tell!!!!

    But once I got back to the room, and Cammie and Pam got all snuggled up in bed, I opened the fridge. There was my choco milk just begging me to be its friend.

    I obliged.

    Then I decided to text Ellen.

    "Did you ever know that you're my hero?"

    Then I texted Lonne.

    "You're everything I wish I could be."

    Then I texted Joan.

    "You are the wind beneath my wings."

    None of them knew I had texted the others. Until all their phones beeped at the same time.

    It was about that time that they were on the bus heading back.

    And I got THE video message of all video messages!!!

    Ladies, I can be bought. To keep silent. I'm not above a little blackmail.......

    Jus sayin........

    So before long I HEARD them coming down the hallway. Actually, I may have heard them as the bus pulled in but I'm not gonna swear to that.

    And the party continued after they got in........ I think I may have even done the limbo, but I'm not gonna swear to that either.....

    First of all - great update!!!!I can just picture you guys singing in the back of the bus! Sorry I missed that! (then again - maybe I'm not) :rotfl2:

    Sorry you missed mr McHotness! But maybe he will be there NEXT year!!!!! If he is as cute as that picture....OUCH! SSSSSSSSSSS!

    Regarding the 1 BR at OKW - awesome to hear about the 1 BR's sleeping 5. That is great news. I think OKW is like Vero and I know the 1BR at Vero was really big. It had a big LR and I kept wondering why they don't put a pull out chair in there.

    Kidani 1BR is definitely another option. I love Kidani!!!!!
