    THe weather has nicely warmed back up and is sunny and in the mid to upper 70's now. It feels beautiful outside now.

    Tuesday we had a perfect day at Animal Kingdom. We rode everything at least once except the train and saw all the shows except the Flights of Wonder. The weather was perfect and everyone had a great time.

    Yesterday we had a Magical day at the Magic Kingdom. I love New Fantasyland. It is just beautiful. It was agreat day capped off by dinner at the Castle. We enjoyed pretty much everything in Fantasyland, new Fantasyland (except for Be Our Guest), Storybook CIrcus and Tomorrowland. Tomorrow we go back and plan to focus on Frontierland and Adventureland. We couldn't have asked for a better day at the Magic Kindom yesterday.

    Happy Thanksgiving all. Today we are taking a quiet day at the resort. We plan to go look at some Christmas Decorations later and will have dinner tonight at Chef Mickey's.

    Down to one day for you now. I know you're beyond excited. I hope everything exceeds your expectations! Thank you for taking such good care of us on this thread and all the work you've done! Awesome! Have a magical trip!pixiedust:

    Now down to one day if my calculations are correct. :cool1: Have a fantastic trip!

    I do! I was just doing that yesterday. Then when we get back I play it the other way...this time last week we were...much sadder version!:sad:

    So glad to hear about BOG. Can't wait to try it out on the 28th! Hope your flight home was good. Thanks so much for updating us. It's so fun to hear from people while they are actually there!::yes::

    If the maid found it, they will probably be able to get it back to you. The problem with calling the resort is, you're not really calling the resort, but a call center and they would have no way to help with that. And they don't identify themselves as a call center, but pretend to be at the front desk. Hope you can get it back!:flower3:

    So glad to hear he's getting better! Sounds like the rest of your trip will be fantastic! I hope so! Hope they enjoyed their surprise at Chef Mickey's!:thumbsup2

    Wow! Sounds like you're having a great time! Glad the weather is pretty good and the wait times are manageable. Thanks for the updates!:goodvibes

    :cool1:

    Sounds like so much fun!!!!:cheer2:

    Wow! Sounds like you're having a blast! So neat that your DD can ride the big rides with you. Nice bonding experience. Lol that she wants to ride in the stroller. It does get so tiring!! And the little one's response is sooo typical! So glad someone turned in your key fob! Another bit of pixie dust. And it is so neat that you all got to participate in the Enchanted Tales. Hope your DW got some video of it. Thanks for the update!

    You as well! Hope it is magical!pixiedust:

    The girls are adorable in their dresses and Mom looks pretty happy! That's always a good sign. ::yes::

    Good Morning Everyone!!!:wave:

    I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It was so nice to have 2 of our 4 kids here along with their families. So much laughter and fun! Our Son and his wife will be here until Sunday and our daughter and her family are leaving tomorrow morning. :sad1:

    The house has been decorated for Christmas since last Saturday.:santa: The Grandkids really enjoyed having them out. DH is putting the tree up on Sunday and I will probably decorate it Monday. I've gotten all the Christmas cards made and will address them on Sunday while watching Christmas movies. I will pack in earnest on Monday or Tuesday. I have a dental appt, an eye exam and a massage before we go. We're traveling 2 1/2 hours to stay overnight near the airport we're flying out of.:drive: We can leave our car there and they'll shuttle us to the airport so we don't have to pay for parking. The funny thing is, we live 5 minutes from an airport, but the flights were $300 cheaper going to Columbus and they are both non-stop, so well worth it! I'm getting so excited!!:dance3:

    Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!:cheer2:

    ETA: I forgot to comment about the kids decorating the tree with lots of ornaments on one branch. That is so adorable. Our DGD, who wasn't quite 3, did the same thing. I left them just as she placed them and after she went back home to Virginia, I would look at those lower branches and just smile. She kissed each ornament before placing them on the tree too, which was precious. I have to say when mine were little I did as your mother did and rearranged after they went to bed. Now I wish I had left them just as they placed them! Funny how we mellow as we age.:rotfl:

    Our last day in Disney world! =(

    My son had an amazing time. Everyone is so nice here. When we arrived to check-in, they had greeted him with a stuffed donald duck, autograph book, and a big pen for his birthday. That itself had made his day. As for the weather, it did start out horrible. We all ended up getting sick! But now its warming up. Overall, everything was great. We'll be back again once this baby in my tummy turns 2! =)

    It's our last day today as well. It's been a great week and we've had a wonderful time. We are going to do MK and DTD one last time. No rushing to get to the park today. Just taking it easy.

    The only must do today is getting our photo pass straightened out. We have someone else's pictures on our photo pass and we are missing some of ours. I'm sure it can be fixed, but it's annoying.

    The only poor weather day so far has been Monday, so that has been nice. We may come back at this time of year again. Definitely have been inspired for future trips.

    Ill do a big wrap up when I get back.

    Wow, i can't believe we leave tomorrow!! :thumbsup2 Thanks so much for all the dialogue on the boards everyone! So looking forward to 8 nights away from work!

    We did have some disappointment last minute - my brother, SIL and DN2 will not be able to join us after all. SIL is 18 weeks pregnant and just found out she has complete placenta previa, so no flying till the baby is born. My kids were SO disappointed. What they don't know yet is that my DH's sister and my DN9 are joining us on Wednesday for 4 nights - it's been planned all along, but we're surprising both sets of kids with that one, so still get to see family this magical trip!

    Flight's at 7:30 tomorrow am, Disney here we come!! :goodvibes

    So glad the key fob was turned in. My dd2(8yrs old) wants to know why we don't have a tripple stroller so she can ride as well! I'm sure if they 2yr old wants to walk a bit she will jump right into her spot. Glad your all having a wonderful time.

    Yay!

    Have fun!

    Your trip sounds just wonderful! Your girls look so cute in their dresses and the look on their faces is just precious.

    So cute how she kissed each ornament and then put it on the tree. Sounds like you are going to get a lot done before you leave. Have fun with your family.

    What a nice surprise for your ds! Sorry to hear you all got sick.

    Can't wait to hear more once you are all back. I hope they figured out the photopass problem.

    Have a great time! Safe travels. Said a prayer for your sil.

    Safe travels and have a blast!

    Have fun!

    Hey! We just went to Chef Mickeys on Wednesday and my kids LOVED it!!! My one year old cracked up every time they came by us and my 4 yo daughter loved getting their autographs!! I thought It was worth every penny!! It's hard to say how much time. We also are off property and with traffic was about 25 minutes +\-. Enjoy!!!!!!

    So we are just starting week two of our trip! We are hanging out at the resort the next two days and then will start the parks on Monday! Looking forward to surprising DD with CRT! We keep saying to her that we wish we could go inside the castle! Lol she's going to be so surprised! Wednesday we are having dinner with friends at Cali Grill. Today my DD had to go to he doctor now. She got DS's tonsillitis!! Now she's on antibiotic. Hopefully she'll be better for Monday!

    Hope everyone is having a great trip or having fun getting ready!!

    Oh no! So sorry your DD got the bug! Yes, hopefully she'll feel good enough to go to CRT! Sending up a prayer!!:hug:


    Wow, so many people leaving the last couple of days. I'm down to 3 more. I'm so tired from all I've been doing, but I know once I get on that plane, I'll perk right up. I hope everyone has a wonderful time!:goodvibes
