    Hello fellow DISers!

    We just returned from 7 days at The World and although I have to wait a few days until my PhotoPass CD arrives, I thought I'd reserve a spot here!

    This was a "family" trip of sorts... 8 adults, 5 of us are related!

    Me and my BF of almost 9 years, Lumar.
    My sister Steph and her BF Rob.
    My brother Mike.
    My cousin Toni and her fiance Josh.
    My cousin Tom (Toni's brother).

    I know, it seems like a lot of people to keep track of, but I'll try to stick reminders in there for you, and of course, there will be pictures!

    We stayed at Old Key West, renting DVC points - arriving on Monday July 9th, and we just came back today, July 16th.

    We had several table service meals, and I'm going to admit right now that I hardly took any food porn pictures. I normally take pictures of everything I stuff into my face while in WDW, but there was so much going on this time around, that I usually forgot!

    I'm starting a new job tomorrow ( :scared: ) so it may be a day or two before I post my first update! Wish me luck!

    Ali, I'm here. I'm here. And I am so anxious to read all about it. I'm dying to know what you thought of OKW.

    Good luck on the start of the job; I know YOU will be GREAT!

    We're staying at OKW for the 1st time this fall so I can't wait to hear what you have to say about it.

    I swear I'll do replies tonight and I will get caught up on everyone else's TRs! I'm so behind and this new job is running me ragged! I haven't even unpacked our suitcases yet.... :faint:

    Yay you were first!! The new job is...well...a job. I definitely should have given myself a recovery day instead of starting the day after we came back, though! I'm living out of a suitcase in my own home because I haven't had time to unpack anything or wash laundry. Gotta get to that today! And I will definitely post my thoughts about OKW!

    :woohoo: yay for the first page! And thank you! so far it's pretty boring because I don't know how to do much. Hopefully it will get better...I hate being bored at work!

    :wave2:

    I wish my PP CD would come in, and that my family would hurry up and send me their pics! I don't want to do an update for our first day without all of our pictures, you know?

    :welcome:

    Trust me, we're still in that fog too! The job had wanted me to start BEFORE vacation and I knew that I couldn't do that (we only had one car at the time and we knew we needed to get a 2nd one because our hours would conflict so I needed some time to get that done), and I didn't want to push it back another day or another week because I didn't want them to offer it to someone else, you know? It's all very stressful!

    It was definitely an interesting trip! Thanks for joining!

    Thanks! Welcome aboard!

    I had a dream last night that me and you went to the mall and we were complaining that none of the stores had any Vinyls for trade...why AE would have Vinyls, I don't know... it was weird!

    Nikki! I haven't seen you in ages! Welcome!! :hug:

    Hey Scott! long time no see! Welcome!

    Thanks! BTW we visited the Poly on this trip and actually walked the path to the TTC... It's definitely much easier in the daylight!

    Hi Amanda! Thanks for joining in! I have several pictures of OKW to share, along with our thoughts!

    Thank you all so much for being patient with me! This whole "going back to work" thing is killing me! :laughing:

    I swear to you, I am uploading photos to Photobucket right now so hopefully I can get my first updated done tonight or tomorrow!
