    This is our first trip and we're doing CRT twice, once for breakfast and once for dinner. I felt like I was overdoing it, since you've done it, are the meals different enough experiences to do that? We're super excited and we have the credits from DxDP so it's not a splurge or anything, just wondering what your thoughts were on doing the 2 different meals. Thanks!

    We are 52 days out and I want to start packing!!!!!:rotfl2: It is getting cold here in RI so i figure it won't hurt to pack. Since most of what we are taking are summer/spring clothes. I just don't know where I would put the suitcases. LOL


    When does everyone else start packing?

    The experiences are similar but still different. We did our CRT breakfast on our last day and had done dinner the night before so we were pretty Disney'ed out but it was still great. The food is what you would find at a very high end restaurant so if you are a foodie it is definitely worth it. The princesses all come to your table and fawn over the kids and interact with everybody so it really is a great time. We had DxDDP last time and don't regret using the two (four) credits on it at all.

    What is AAA Wishes viewing? We're going thru AAA, also.

    Entering the MK and turning the corner of the Emporium and seeing that beautiful Castle; I've been in love ever since! As for SSE, what a thrill I had the first time I entered and rode it. Up till then I thought that it was only a landmark. I never dreamed that there was such a marvelous adventure inside of it; to this day, it is still one of my favorites.

    That is very nice! How did you do the embroidery work? You really did a beautiful job with it. I'm going to start working on our shirts again tomorrow.

    But, don't forget to take some warmer clothes because it can get cold in Nov., also. We're packing for warm basically, but going with some long pants and sweatshirts, also. I really want warm weather though. When you're from the cold North (Mid Atlantic) my big treat is to swim outside in Nov. for the first time ever! :beach:

    You guys have really helped me with my feelings and are helping me thru a tough time. Our family funeral was beautiful today, but very difficult. Coming to the Disney sites really helps take my mind off of everything. As I said above, I'm going to start painting our shirts again tomorrow. Thank you again.

    I visited Disneyland with my family and Aunt, Uncle, and cousin when I was 5. The most vivid memory I have was LOVING Its A Small World, HATING Pirates of the Caribbean, and being THRILLED to ride a real live burro on the Pack Mules Through Nature's Wonderland ride.

    My first WDW trip was 2 years later in 1973. My biggest memory from that trip was being FURIOUS with my evil big brother because he tricked me into riding the Haunted Mansion and I was petrified the entire time. I also remember thinking it really was raining outside when I saw the "storm" out the "windows" during the Tiki Room show.

    I was just looking at allears.net and seeing the review and pictures of the LM rooms at AoA. I'm going to have to find out which building is the Ursula building. I hadn't seen that before and my girls are TERRIFIED of Ursula, so we'll have to put in a request to NOT be in that room. :eek: I'll have to give them a call tomorrow. It's sold out so I'm hoping we get lucky.

    MICKEY MAIL CAME TODAY!! 34 days!


    I'm guessing, without going to get the envelope, that our mickey mail today was in a 5x8 ish envelope..not too big, but has Disney all over it. My 18 month old freaked out when he saw it!

    Oh my! I'll have to check out those pictures, I had no idea there was an Ursula building!! We're at the GF and Poly this trip, but I was thinking about AoA LM for my daughter next year but Ursula would completely ruin her vacation, and that's not even a slight exaggeration. Maybe we should stick with WL for next year! Good luck with your room request!:goodvibes

    OOOhhhh I'm so glad you said that, I was worried I was overdoing it, we have the breakfast on our first morning and the dinner on Day 7 or our 9 full days...

    As of yesterday morning our trip is paid in full!:jumping1::rainbow::rainbow::jumping1:

    Now I just need to book our hotel at the airport and order our photopass+. We will be getting mickey mail of another kind here soon. I preordered Cinderella from DMC. I have it on vhs and I am getting the blueray and DVD combo. I bought mickey notebook for my trip notes and to put all our adr info in. We are at 53 days and can't wait. It seems like I have a lot to do and not enough time. I won't have much time this weekend as we have a birthday party and a babyshower. We are making the diaper cake and tie blanket today.

    I am also stressing about work due to the fact I have a new boss. Its always a learning experience getting used to a new boss. I will continue to do what my job is as well as all the extras thrown at me.

    Thats awesome, us too!! :) Now is just the waiting game, aaahhh won't be long now. Hope everyone has a great Saturday. Tonight is my daughter's homecoming dance- the team lost the homecoming game last night booooo!! Oh well can't win them all I guess!! She is going to look so beautiful tonight. I will be at the salon with her for hours today- but it will be worth it for her this only comes once a year and I have always tried to make the day special for my girls- my daughter is a sophmore this year so I still have 2 more after this year then its all over--- no more kids in HS!! I can't believe how fast they grow up. I can still remember when they were little trying to even imagine what they would be like grown up and now they practically are and I feel old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But in a good way I guess. My girls Sarah- 23 and Rachel soon to be 16 in January are both such sweet and caring people and I am so equally proud of both of them. They do have their moments trust me but overall they are and have been such a pure joy to my husband and I. Hope everyone has a great day!! Enjoy the cooler weather too :)

    I have princess clings from last year I will use. The kids are bringing lots of disney toys so I'm sure they will end up on the ledge. I'll probably print a lime green Mickey head to put up as well. Lights are a good idea I'll have to remember to pack some.

    We homeschool too.

    We are at Pop Nov 26 - Dec 6th. Its our third stay and we can't wait. A dis meet would be nice. I'll have a lgmh too. It will be me, dh, two dd's and baby ds.

    Very funny! except in my house there is not pic of the husband since I do it for him. Ha Ha!

    I have a very small wallet type thing that I wear around my neck like a lanyard.

    Your girls are adorable! The outfits are just awesome. I'm very jealous. Ha Ha! My girls just get matching tee's.

    So glad to hear she is coming home!!!!! Great joy!!!!

    That sweatshirt is very cute! I am packing t-shirts, long sleeve t-shirts and sweatshirts. We will do the layering thing if need be. We will also have pants and shorts. I plan on doing laundry at some point.


    That is some stroller!

    :cool1:

    I was an adult the first time I went to Disney. I took my two boys 7 and 4. Watching them was the best! They were so excited. They are now 26 and 23

    :cool1:

    We have 58 days and will probably start packing in another week or so since it is getting cooler. I have a big bag already filled with things to put in the suitcases I just need to make room in the closet.

    :cool1:

    :cool1: for payin off the trip. Sorry about the stress of a new boss.

    So, first of all, little baby Caroline is not coming home any time soon. She has lost 10 oz in two days and is not feeding well. She now has an ng tube and is being fed through that when she doesn't eat enough naturally. My DD is going in 4 times a day to nurse her and pumping the rest of the time so she's being fed bottles the other times during the day. It was such a disappointment that she wasn't coming home, but we all want her to remain as long as it is necessary. Once she gains back her weight, they'll remove the tube and keep her another 2 days to see if she maintains her weight. Still, we feel blessed that her breathing seems to be totally fine.::yes:: I leave Monday to help out and can't wait to be there again. Maybe I'll even get to see and hold the baby!:thumbsup2


    Your schedule looks great! congrats on paying the trip(s) off!! It's never too early to pack around this thread! Once I don't need the clothes I'll start packing them.

    Looks like you put your new machine to good use!! That is adorable! Yeh, hope it is only needed for the AC!!!;)

    The one MM comes in a little bit larger than a business size envelope and the other comes in a bit bigger (taller) and less long than the business. Whatever, it's fun to get it!!! Hope yours comes soon!:thumbsup2

    If I recall, the AAA Wishes viewing area is the grassy area to the right of the castle than you access by walking down a path. There is a shelter type area at the bottom. All you have to do is show your AAA card.

    So glad you're feeling better about your trip.:hug: A beautiful service really helps to say goodbye and deal with things. Have fun doing your shirts!:goodvibes

    :rainbow::rainbow::rainbow: There are your rainbows for paying off your trip! I would love to get the new Cinderella, but I have the old one and can't justify the purchase. That is something to look forward to, though!::yes::

    I hope your new boss is a good one and that you can adjust quickly to her. Good luck!:flower3:

    Yes, it does go so fast! How nice that you can share in her day today, though! Wait until you see your daughter trying on wedding dresses for the first time. I was a puddle! Enjoy!:goodvibes

    DH and I are at POP Nov 28 - Dec 6th. Maybe we'll see you too! I've got some Disney Christmas window clings that I hope I remember to take. Took them one year and never got them on the windows! I'll have a LGMH on my purse and my backpack. ;)
