    What can I say except that this family is the best family to be around. They are always full of love and have tons of fun with each other. This Sunday we got together for a ham dinner (which I must say was the best ham dinner ever) and 6 hours flew by as if we were there for an hour. We had tons of fun and lots of laughs, and the best first root beer float ever. Thanks you guys for everything. I couldn't ask for a better family to be with. :bitelip: :earsgirl: :flower1:

    Just came on to see if Southwest had put out their new schedule. Poor DM and DF are going batty waiting as this is the only loose end of our trip they can not tie up. :badpc: Not yet. Thanks for all the continued response to our story. I can speak for all of us when I say we are all still as excited as we were the moment we found out. So hilarious when my 2 year old DS says "we going to dissey". As you can tell we talk about it often and he has picked up our new favorite saying. Looking forward to sharing the next leg of our family journey our trip reports, is it August yet? :goodvibes

    Hello, Carol! :wave: :wave:
    I have thought of you (and your wonderful ideas ;) )often and have been wondering how you are. It was so nice to see your post! :goodvibes
    Yes, indeed, we are all still excited and looking forward to our adventure in Disney. All our ADRs are set-now just waiting for SWA to open up flight dates for our trip. That, I must admit, is making me quite frazzled. :crazy: Again, it was great to "hear" from you. :goodvibes

    Thanks for sharing that Magical Moment story with us, love that idea!! We too are going to Disneyland for the FIRST time on June 20th! We have always dreamed of going, and it was always my mom's dream to take us, but that never happened.(my sister did get to go for one night for graduation trip with her senior class, 20 years ago) So my husband and I came into some money and decided we would finally take our two kids, but I decided I just couldn't go without taking my sister's family as that has always been their dream to take their three kids and they just couldn't afford it. So we are all going, NINE of us! We are staying in a family suite, sleeps 10. Our oldest daughter(13) knows about the trip , smarty pants figured it out one day, however our youngest does not know, he is 10, and neither do any of my sister's kids.( 9, 13, and 16). My daughter however does not know all the little surprises we have planned. THe first one is the morning of the 20th a limo will show up to pick us up then later pick up my sister's family. He will present us all with Personalized Gold Mickey ears.( I have a friend in CA that is sending them to me)Plus I ordered carry on type zip up handbags that each person will get that is full of disney themed things for the airplane trip/etc. ( disney hat,tshirt,stuffed animal, coloring books,puzzles,suckers,pens,crayons,etc etc)The fun part too is our two kids have never been on a plane before!!! YEAH!! We got the 4 day hopper pass, then we have tickets to go to Seaworld for one day, and Universal for one day. We extended our trip to the 7th day.(plane leaves at 8pm) just so we could do the Pirates of Carribean ride,supposed to open that day!We are doing the character breakfast at Goofys Kitchen one morning and the dining with Shamu at Seaworld.
    I am more excited about all the kids reactions, then getting excited about seeing Disneyland!!! YEAH!!


    Hugs,
    Shawn in Vancouver,WA :yay:

    I just came across this story and it so moved me.

    That is the power of the Disney Magic.

    Your family will have a blast.
