    Shhhhh...it's a secret.....yesterday I bought Tyler a plane ticket!!! :banana::banana::banana: I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy!!! Pods finally relented, after I made him call the coach (after a girlfriend spoke to him and the coach said "Tell Ken to give me a call- Tyler should go to Florida!" YAY COACH!!! YAY for girlfriends!!! :dance3::dance3:

    I am not going to tell them- just going to pretend I am dropping Tyler off at therapy on Monday on our way to the airport....and then surprise!!! You're going to WDW instead!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!! :yay::yay::yay:

    Hehe!! I love it! Hope you have a camera ready to get a pic of Tyler's face when you tell him. We surprised Al with a WDW trip for her 7th birthday and didn't tell her until we were on our way to the airport. The expression was priceless!

    Sorry so late in replying Ellen. But the girls did an awesome job performing. Both at DTD and MK. I loved seeing them march in the band down Main Street USA.

    Advice for staying at SSR. Don't let them put you in the Paddock. No bus stop there from the constructing of the new pool they are doing. We love the Grandstand area. Plus it is the first bus stop to get on and off, and there is a great pool there with a bar during the day. Or if you really like to go to DTD try to stay at Congress Park. The Turf Club is excellent for dinner. They had great prime rib. For us the crowds were kinda big. But we would get to the parks early for EMH then go back to the resort and swim/lounge around the pool in the afternoon, then back to the parks in the evenings. So we tried to avoid the big crowds at the parks.

    Busses, well, they are busses. We didn't have to tough of a time getting them. I never did have to stand while riding one this trip. Thank goodness. :laughing:

    Hope you get this before getting to SSR. Have a great time with your boys, which I know you will. Can't wait to read about it. :woohoo:

    Thanks, Chris- just wanted you to know I did get this- and I requested Springs, CP, or GS when I booked- NO PADDOCK or CAROUSEL!!! :scared1: I am expecting big crowds- and planning to do what you suggested (we are not used to them either! Always travel on the off times). TTYS, and thanks for the tips!!!:thumbsup2

    :cool1: Looking forward to tonight's report. You have started something you know. After drooling about your trips I decided Sarah and I would go to Disney for our annual mother-daughter trip. Rob and Sarah generally go camping for their one-on-one trip, but since I am NOT a camper I tend to take Sarah to places with real beds and indoor toilets. :rotfl:

    :banana: Five nights and seven days (leaving early and returning late) at OKW, just the two of us. I am going to let her be in charge of the whats and wheres. Yesterday I made her sit down at the computer, review menus and pick out the restaurants where she wants to eat. Also, I signed her up for one of the YES individual enrollment classes and I reserved one night's viewing and eating at the Wishes Dessert Party. Rob avoids sweets so this is the perfect thing to do when it is just Sarah and I.
