    I thoroughly enjoyed reading about your trip! Thank you so much for taking the time to write everything for us. I will be leaving next week with my 4 girls, and I think we will have many of the same stories to tell.

    I just wanted to let you know I enjoyed all the trip reports. I recently went w/ my 4 kids. Although they are a little older (DS9,DS7,DD6,DD1) there were a lot of things I had in common. I think my DD6 saw every bathroom in all 4 parks! I do really enjoy reading reports by people w/ kids. I am already planning our second trip! :cool1:

    Thanks for sharing your trip report, I really enjoyed reading it. In June I will be taking my 2 and 6 year old grandsons to WDW, the 2 year old for the first time. If you can do that well with four, I can handle two! (I hope) :upsidedow

    I added a link to photos in the original post of this. It's right before all the links for the reports.
    Thanks!

    Thank you so much for sharing. I just finished reading your reports last night, and it was great to come online this morning to put faces to the story.

    What a great trip and you have some wonderful pics to look back on!

    Thanks again!

    Thank you! I love your avatar pic w/Aladdin and Jasmine! We have never actually seen Aladdin in the parks :guilty: -- I can't tell where that is you spotted them together?

    That was in Morrocco (Epcot). We just happened to time it right. Aladdin was AWESOME and gave my kids "magic carpet rides" (picked them up & turned in circles). One of our favorite memories. There was no other kids in the area at that time, so we had a good 5-10 minutes of Aladdin & Jasmine together. And Jasmine remembered DD5 from the PSB that morning...so that made it even more special.

    Thanks again minmate for the reports and photos.

    That sounds so awesome! When we're in World Showcase we don't seem to see a lot of the characters... usually we time it right in only one or two pavilions.

    Oh, Minmate...what a WONDERFUL read!! I read your entire trip report from the "Predawn nervousness" to "Sam (again) I am" and it was like a terrific book that I couldn't put down!! And I'll have you know that you have the honor of being the FIRST trip report I have ever read! Even though I've been on these boards for some time, I just yesterday discovered the Trip Report Board! It's now prominently booked next to all the rest of them. :love: Thought my DH would enjoy your trip as well and, knowing that he would NOT sit at the computer for that length of time to get it all read, I printed it all out for him...ALL 56 PAGES!! You owe me some ink girl! :rotfl: But I digress. Anyway DH kind of rolls his eyes at me ("Here she goes...talking about the DIS boards again") when I say, "Here, some fun reading material for you." So he starts it last night in bed and reads until he can no longer stay awake...and then takes the rest of it too WORK so he can FINISH it! He can't put it down. We love it and can't wait until our trip begins.

    "I remember back two days ago, and can almost see the ghost of my family where we stood waiting to enter the park that day, the girls donning their princess dresses."

    I LOVE this part!!! It gave me shivers when I read it. I can't tell you how many times I've ended a vacation and felt that same wash of feeling come over me...just could never put it into words.

    Quick question: Did you write this on a daily basis or wait until you got home? I'm amazed at all the details.

    Thanks again, Minmate. Don't know if you know it or not, but you sprinkled pixie dust in our house yesterday. Have a wonderful, Disney day! :wave2:
