    We have only 3 days to go now until jac & co. hit the friendly skies Sunday morning on our way to The Fortune Cookie Surprise Trip to Disney! I just can not believe it is almost here!
    I want to thank everyone for their support, interest & wishes for a magical adventure. All of your thoughts have meant the world to each and everyone of us-and your responses will all be part of our family scrapbook of our Disney adventure.
    I do hope to build a website to include trip reports, dining reviews and pics when we return. I will do my best to do so yet I must admit the whole idea is quite intimidating!

    Again, thank you...thank you...thank you all!

    Drew, Mikayla, Cj, Alex, Liz, Jenn, Manny, Amy & Craig

    I just found this trip report! Rock on Rhode Islanders! I went to PC, and LOVE LOVE LOVE and MISS the state...now I am jealous that you all are going to the DIS (well, it appears that you are back).. I can't wait for the trip report to BEGIN! :0)

    Beautiful idea!

    I'm a newbie here and just read your story --- IT WAS GREAT. Hope you all had a good time. Family vacations are the best. I just love going with my son and his family especially to WDW with the little ones (ages 1 and 4). It's some of the best times we have together and great memories. Hope they never end.:banana:

    Lynninpa, I love the fortune cookie idea. Can I borrow a few phrases for our trip?. We are going with a family of 6 --4 teens and 2 adults. All 1st timers. The "dine with nine" one works out perfectly for them and us (2a 1c)

    Their teens do not know they are going. 4 months having to keep it secret...yeeesh! As far as they will know they are going to visit family friends in GA. They will know my small unit is going to WDW and will be soooo disappointed (evil parents arent we?) The plan is to caravan down from PA ( I really do live there..lol) and stop for lunch somewhere around Savannah. That is when we will break it to them. HOLD YOUR EARS ON SEPT 10th Georgians, for you will hear the screams clear cross the state. I made up little books for them with tips, trivia and loose itineraries--days we will be where etc. They will get a personal t-shirt with something Disney on it 1st then, the little books(which I dont think they will catch onto right off the bat) then a folder with maps, puzzles, etc. to entertain them the last 4 hours of the drive. I would love to give them some fortune cookies for dessert for lunch as clues also. Figured let 'em eat first or we might as well skip lunch all together. LOL I need some more cluesfor the cookies if anyone can think of any that dont involve flying and would be obscure enuf not to let them figure it out. Trust me, these kids WILL NOT catch on right away with small clues. Kinda bulild up to it.

    Maybe I will actually get around to writing a trip report....LOL...yeah right...I still havent done the one from 2 years ago...LOL

    Turbo, awesome tatoo.

    I just read the original post, when you were still in the planning stages. Lynn in PA, did you ever write a trip report? I want to hear all about it. Just reading about the dinner and fortune cookie surprise, I felt so connected and a part of your suprise. I want to read more!
