    Greetings DISfamily!!! :goodvibes We are headed back "HOME" to Disney World tomorrow for a bit of a crazy last minute spring break trip!! :thumbsup2 Availability was very slim for AP room discounts so we are split between THREE different resorts for the week. This could either be AWESOME or a complete nightmare, I haven't decided which yet. :lmao: But when the Mouse is calling my name we've got to get there no matter what it takes. ;) So tomorrow we will begin our adventure and hopefully you guys will enjoy following us along the way.

    Those of you who haven't "cyber-vacationed" with us before WELCOME!!! :grouphug: I love to post LIVE trip reports because you can experience WDW at the same time we are. If you'd like to see some of our other reports here are the last few:

    I am more than happy to answer questions or investigate things you might be curious about... I myself am curious to see how this new Fast Pass return time system is working, as well as checking out the new Storybook Circus area at MK.

    A little about our family... 2 adults, 2 kids (boys ages 12 and 10), flying in tomorrow, taking Magical Express, we've got room only AP rates booked, no dining plan, actually really NO PLAN of any kind this time around. :rotfl: We originally had decided to stay home over the kids' spring break to do some home projects and just relax... who were we kidding with THAT idea?? :lmao:

    We are at CBR the first night in a Pirate themed room, which the kids are VERY excited about. Then 4 nights at YC on the club level garden view, which I am excited about ;) , then the last night (April 1st) is on DVC points for a studio at Kidani because there are no AP rates that week leading up to Easter. The only dining reservations I have so far are tomorrow night Fulton's and our last night Narcoosee's. Since we live in the midwest we NEED our seafood fix. :thumbsup2

    Park hours this week look pretty typical for Spring Break, we've got lots of late night hours at MK, as well as 10:00 PM for the Studios. It's going to be crowded no doubt!

    I will try to post pics at least once a day. I will hopefully get some good ones of the current construction and anything else that's new. If you have something in particular you'd like me to snap a photo of please just ask. :)

    I also tweet live: @Erika_Murphy .... Feel free to follow along with me there!

    That about does it for tonight, its already almost midnight and I've got TONS of packing left to do! I feel completely NOT READY for this vacation, but I can't wait to get there! :cheer2:

    I'm glad to have you along with us.... so buckle in, keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times and here.... we.... GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO :cloud9: :cloud9: :cloud9: :cloud9:

    I've added you to my Vacation list, with a bunch of other WDW type Twitter accounts. I'll follow here, too. We'll be at CBR Apr 22 for a week. Warn the ducks there that the little blonde terror will be coming back, ok?

    Nice to hear your first day went so smoothly.

    I didn't know they had a "statue lady" in DTD. Cool.

    I am so jazzed a live trip report and I am here on time! Thank you so much for inviting us to join you.

    Love the photo of Walt and Mickey with the beautiful sunset. Great photography! Really happy to see the living statues back. We saw them on our first visit back in 2004. Shortly after that they were gone.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Hey Erika!
    Looks like another fun trip you have "planned!" I am excited to follow along once again! Thank you for taking the time to post.

    I'm truly looking forward to your YC concierge stay. I am surprising my family with WL concierge for our trip this summer. They have NO idea!

    Enjoy your WDW vacation!
