    DS4 saw me looking at CRT and said he wants to go to the castle because he can be a Prince..:cloud9: Well what is a Queen to do....book CRT for her birthday of course...(DH is hesitant...I have 177 days to get him onboard)Bree is too much isn't she???

    Okay so this IS a US PTR...a pic of the Castle for Sheila...

    Pas, the Express! You spoil me... if I wasn't in the middle of reading A Song of Ice and Fire, I'd go back and re-read my favorite series ever. :thumbsup2


    I wanna go so bad. :crazy2:

    Ooooh, shall we run at the wall together with our luggage carts? :rotfl2: (Every time I'm in the U.K. I always look around when we ride the train into London; I'll see that platform one of these days. :goodvibes )

    Your family sounds like my family. They have decided that they would rather go to Universal. We stayed at PBH for the first time last summer. We loved it. We are doing Universal/SeaWorld in June. We are staying in a condo this time with other family but I am thinking about booking 2 rooms for one night at RPR so we can get 2 days of express pass.

    Love the pic of your kiddos in front of the Hogwart's Express. :) We will overlap--we are there Aug 10-24. Looking forward to seeing what you have in mind! We are probably going to do the 'Ohana breakfast for our Disney fix--I wanted to go back to the GF for the "in laws" but Stitch cannot be denied. :stitch:

    You are SO right, Stitch is not to be denied! :stitch2: And why not? He's great! (the breakfast rocks too :thumbsup2).

I am also thinking the kids could have an evening at Camp Lil Rock so hubs and I can have some time alone :) DH is really counting on chillaxing...lots of pool time. I am really excited!!!! Trying to make sure we do things we've missed...water rides...restaurants. I'm always open to suggestions too!!! And :welcome: Thank you for joining the fun!!!

    I am joining in. I know next to nothing about US so, I am hoping to learn something while reading. Or I will learn that changing my plans is a normal thing. I seem to change my mind weekly.

    When I first started planning, I had a hard time not changing my mind constantly. I am now on a program where they help me to stick to my plans and I get one day a week for changes. I wish they had support groups like that, but I imagine they would have a hard time sticking to a date and time.;)
