    I was hoping to have another update, but the Disney website is KILLING ME, and won't let me make reservations!

    Hey Elizabeth!! I'm definitely in. Btw, I love, love, LOVE that picture of you and Josh (the one in the first post). Hee-larious!!! Oh, and that Minnie outfit on your niece is adorable. I had my sister make me something very similar and can't wait to put Alexandra in it for newborn pics. Swoon!!

    I completely agree :thumbsup2

    He is such a hoot, I love having him around!!!

    Yes, babies dressed up always makes my day. I think the cutest thing on the planet, hands down is when a baby is wearing ears on a sweatshirt or hat or something :rotfl:

    Well I finally got around to upload some fun photos!!

    I had some Disney Dream Dollars from my Visa that were going to expire on the first, so I had to make a Disney Store order... poor me :laughing:

    I got new shirts for our trip!!

    Am I the only one that finds I wear the same things on vacation year after year? We only have "summer" here for about 2 months so I find that my summer clothes as a result last forever! Sometimes when sorting photos I have to look at how long my hair is to figure out what year it is!!

    Love your new shirts!!! Especially the gray one! .....and yes... the same vacation clothes... but hopefully not for me this year with the training and running I'm doing! (That also means a little more on clothes and a little less money to take with me... but I think it will be a good trade off in the end. ha ha.)

    Love your shirts -- especially the fushia/magenta/whatever color that is. Haha. I do the same thing. I always wear the same Disney shirts on our trips. I figure out when it is based on how chubby I am or how dark my hair is. HA!

    YES!! I'm finding it hard to resist anything baby related w/ ears attached. Seriously, it's horrible!

    Actually, yeah... I can't wear T-shirts to work, so they don't get too much wear and tear on the few occasions I do wear them. They end up lasting forever and I always seem to take the same ones. The problem is I always seem to accumulate new T-shirts anyway.

    Wow you have some great ADR's going on! I take it your on the dining plan?

    :cloud9: Oh man, she's adorable. And that outfit! Are you kidding me? I love it! If I ever have a girl, i'm going to have to steal this idea.:rolleyes1

    I feel so bad for you that you had to go shopping for Disney clothes...:lmao: For me, I only wear my Disney clothes to either Disneyland, Disney World, or the Disney cruises so I feel like I keep wearing the same Disney things over and over. I tend to buy at least one new shirt for every upcoming trip I have. Like for the TR i'm doing right now, I had to find a Disney shirt for MVMCP. Well, I didn't 'have' to, but I felt it was necessary :thumbsup2

    Yoooohooo! I made it over here! I'm impatiently waiting for some more updates, specifically when you get back so I can look at your pictures. I have like a bazillion more days before I go...not even booked but I'm thinking we'll have to go back next year to see the rest of Fantasyland when it opens! Maybe we'll go at the same time!

    Oh my gosh your niece is so cute! That minnie outfit is just precious! We'll have to get her and Foster together, I brought Mickey ears to his newborn portrait session, so they are baby Minnie and baby Mickey!

    I also love your new Disney clothes! I am so guilty of wearing the same outfits over and over to Disney. I don't usually wear my Disney t-shirts in real life, so they only come out for vacation!

    ::yes::

    I am going to update today, I have changed our ADRs, and in some cases our parks all around!!!! I will see if I can find a few old pictures to make this more colorful!


    You boys are just so cute!!! I can't wait to see the baby Mickey photos! I have been wearing my new Mickey shirts around a bit more! I work my pink one to work yesterday. They all know I am a Disney nut, and encourage me, so I figure, why not!?

    One of the things that is best about being a Disney lover is that it isn't hard for people to know how to throw you a party!!!

    The night before my birthday a group of my friends and I went out to dinner and I had my first volcano bowl... fun stuff.

    The next day, my actual birthday I was sent to the scrapbook store (yeah I knew there was going to be a cake when I got home) and came home a full blown princess party!

    Complete with this amazing cake made my one of my best friends

    And now, I am 22 (plus a few) and that much closer to our trip!!

    New and Improved Schedule!!!

    Because I plan to the point of obsession, I have cancelled and scheduled, and moved and re-arranged!!!

    So Now, let me share our plans for Days 0-3

    Day 0 - Arrival Day: 4/16

    We fly in late afternoon, but will have to be up before 5. Because of this, I figure we could check in, settle in our room (if it is ready) and then head to Magic Kingdom.

    We hope to hit Big Thunder and Splash and then Haunted Mansion, before/after our 6:45 reservation at Liberty Tree Tavern. The plan is to stick to ONLY Liberty Square (which is an argument between Josh and I, he insists that Liberty Square doesn't count as a "land") :lmao: We don't want to go anywhere near the New Fantasyland until we can explore it in full. We also want to have a limit to what we are going to do after the great migraine of 2011, where I ended up not being able to enjoy Liberty Tree as a result.


    Day One - Magic Kingdom - 4/17

    We are going to get breakfast at the Mara before we head to the park so I can get me some Mickey waffles! :banana:

    We will head strait to Bell's Enchanted Tails, and then explore the rest of the New Fantasyland!

    Once we are done with New Fantasyland, we will head over to Columbia Harbor House and have some lunch, so that I can get some of that yummy shrimp that they hide there! We had thought about doing Cosmic Ray's before, but after deciding we wanted to try Be our Guest for lunch later in the week, I had to do a switch a roo!

    The rest of the afternoon will be a mishmash of great thrills through the Magic Kingdom!!
    For dinner we will be dining in the newest enchanted castle : Be Our Guest, at 8. After dinner we are going to catch Wishes and the Electrical Parade, if we are able to stand still!! If we don't catch the parade ( it's at 11, which is late for us!!) we will have another chance (or two) later in the week


    Day 2 - Epcot - 4/18


    Our first Epcot day is going to include a wonderful breakfast at Sunshine Seasons! LOVE this place!!

    We want to spend the morning in Future World, then have lunch at the take out station of the Rose and Crown before spending the afternoon in the World Showcase.

    We are then going to have dinner at the Garden Grill. We have never been there, but we love the land ride, and didn't have a character meal, so I think this was a good fit. The original plan called for Le Cellier, but once they switched the menu over, we just couldn't justify the price :sad2:

    After dinner I figure we will have enough time to grab me a nice glass of champagne and then enjoy the show!
