    I'm sure this goes for all the others that have followed this trip report...but I still find it really cool that you like & have done so much of the same thing that my family loves too.

    Common things I found:
    1)Totally floored me to see your pictures with dd's behind bars with "Zurg"- or whatever his name is...I thought I was the only one who did that... I have my dd pictures ranging from ages 6 to 16 too :laughing:
    2)Epcot first thing in the morning...
    3) The sushi thing
    4) I've stayed at most of the same resorts..
    5) Pin collection
    6) Castle with the cat :rotfl2: I have a similar picture...less Epcot & other stuff... I've even told dd when she moves out of the house, I'm keeping the castle!
    7) restaurant choices

    Thank you for sharing the journey... and letting me know I'm not the only freak out there :eek:

    We are on the commando thread, so there are at least 200 of us there. Thank you for following along and your comments.

    I have no idea how that Zurg thing started, although my guess is they came off the ride and saw other children behind there, and then it just became a regular thing. Kinda like that Hatter tea cup picture. I have taken a similar one of DW and I over the years, but I am not as cute as dds so I didn't post all those.

    And yes, that Disney city is mine. They just get to borrow it.

    It was probably was my KID!!!!:lmao: we started taking pictures with dd posing like a model on the car that was at the beginning of Toontown and then the 3rd year we went....the car was gone:scared1:, now ToonTown is gone! At least we'll always have Zurg.

    I remember Pete's garage, but i don't remember a car. We were there in 2000 on our Disneymoon, but I probably wasn't paying as much attention as I do now. ;)

    You'll have to wait until March and I'll try another Live report. I wonder if the mods will let me leave this one open, and then I can just start posting here. Someone could teach me how to update the signature line and I could put in the new date and go from there. That would be fun to see 10 years of trip reports in one thread.

    Finally had a chance to finish reading your TR. Sounds like you had a great time! Reminds me a lot when our boys were younger. Looking forward towards your next TR.

    Go to "User CP"- Edit signature (under control panel), scroll down to the posting box, now just add your dates to the bottom of the box, only delete the type you don't want to appear. To change the date on the Disneytopia link line, just type over the date or if you want 2 links just insert a new link button after the original one" - Preview, then submit
    Do NOT, repeat do NOT touch the avatar box, where the tag fairy has posted because if you do anything to it, it will disappear.pixiedust: EDIT: it's not the avatar box, my mistake, it the edit user details....custom title

    Ok, I hope those instructions make sense, or if that's actually what you were asking:confused3

    Oooohhhh totally different

    In your first post that starts the thread click on Edit in the lower right corner of the post. When the editing box comes up click on "Advanced Edit" in the lower right. That will take you to a posting screen and you can change the title in the Title bar just like you saw when you posted this thread.

    I just tested it myself as a refresher... it works

    You can also change/set the link to start at the new post of of the next trip vs. starting at beginning (pg 1) by clicking on the page & post and using that as the URL ....

    Welcome to the next installment of the trip report.

    Disneytopia LIVE! October 2013


    Thanks for reading along. If you want to go back to the LIVE trip report from 2012, it starts on page 1. There are previous trip reports linked there as well. I thought this might be a cool way to just starting putting all my trip reports here going forward.

    I just read your TR and I really enjoyed it!! Your girls are adorable and it is so nice to see pictures of WDW during the times I can never get there. I am a teacher, so the fall is a "no-go" time for me. I am, however, leaving in 13 days to spend New Year's with the mouse (talk about a busy time...yikes!) staying at AKL. (Parents just bought DVC, so they are treating us to a 2 bdrm villa!)

    BTW - do they do the Welcome Home Wednesdays thing at Epcot every week??

    I really want to try to write a TR now!! :rotfl: I am not veteran that you are, but I think it would be fun!

    Thanks for a great read!

    I am glad you enjoyed it. We've been to AKV and it is a great resort, so have a great trip. If we didn't have a Fall Break, then we couldn't go in October. We have never done the 2 BR, but have enjoyed the 1 BR space. They do the WHW at the Boardwalk every Wednesday, at the Atlantic City Music Hall at 2:00 PM. Writing the TR is just another way to have more fun and enjoy the memories. You'll do great at it.

    T-5 hours. Packing and loading the truck now. For my birthday present, FIL loaned us his 2011 GMC Sierra 1/2 ton crew cab AND gave us his credit card for gas. An excellent present. Wave if you see us on the road later today.

    Okahumpka service plaza. Less than 50 miles away. This is the first stop off Florida Turnpike from I-75. I think our original visit was the oldest dd was carsick. Now, it's a part of our routine - dunkin donuts first breakfast.
