You can send me a PM if you want to try and get together... there is a great JoAnn Fabrics in West Knoxville! I like Hobby Lobby too, but they are not open on Sundays. I will bring our FE. I did mine without sewing either, but used the iron on hem tape. It looks pretty good from the front!

Here's some info from the thread on the Grand Gathering at Friday night's Illuminations. I think it starts at 7:30, is that right? Down lower is the Grand Gatherings number and information on signing up from Lissa. But I don't know if there's any room left in the case that someone else wanted to join in at this point.

International Dinner and IllumiNations Dessert Reception
Taste food from all around the world in a buffet style dinner. In the past there have been American, Italian, German and Chinese selections. Your fun-loving hostess, Auntie Roz, will keep the eveningly lively and someone from your party might even be part of the show! Make sure your outgoing children are ready to perform -- and have your camera ready!

Classic Characters such as Minnie Mouse and Goofy have been known to show up right before the dance party begins! After dinner, there is also time for photos with the characters before heading out to your VIP viewing area for "IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth."

The highlight of this viewing spot is a beautiful and elegant dessert buffet. Wine and coffee are served around the chocolate fountain and other sweets. Sounds like a dessert lover's dream come true!

You're leaving so soon? After the fireworks, you do not have to hurry out. Relax! Fill up another plate! Do anything to avoid the mass exodus around you. Think about how peaceful your walk out of Epcot will be once the crowds are gone.

Prices are $59.99 (Adult ages 10+) and $29.99 (Children 3-9). Remember that theme park admission is required and is NOT included in the price of the Grand Gathering.

Illumnations dinner- grand gathering event
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just got off the phone with WDW. Can't book this yet as it is not 180 days so i will call next Saturday and book it. I can not book it until those that want to be involved add the grand gathering number to their hotel reservation. If your a DVC member you can do this by calling member services others can call CRO. So you don't have to look for the number it is 824529.

After over an hour on the phone I finally get through to someone at member services that can help. They have made changes to their system and i was only able to book for my family because you now have to pay for this when you book it. If you are a DVC member call member services tell them you want to book the Illuminations dinner and desert reception. They will connect you to the right person. If you are not a DVc member you call this number 1-407-939-7526. Tell them the same thing. You will need our grand gatherings number. The date we are booking is 7/17. In case you need it my confirmation number for this is M9723692. Our grand gathering number is 824529. Oh why did Disney have to change things they couldn't have just left it alone and this would have been so much easier. Sorry i couldn't book this for everyone.

The grand gathering illuminations cruise sounds wonderful! Too bad we will already be in Port Canaveral. We'll warm the ship up for you though!

I'm heading to Washington for a conference in a couple weeks. I also get to visit my parents while there. It'll be my first trip out of Africa since last July. Unfortunately, I won't be able to bring the family. Of course, Joann#2 already had her trip to Germany, so don't worry about her.

Yeah - Don't worry about me, I just have to single-handedly get ready for our moving sale - which is May 8-9. DH will conveniently miss that. Of course, I'm working full-time and have three kids at home - but I'm superwoman so it's all good.

The birds are chirpping, the grass is greening, and my daffodils are blooming! Could spring finally be here? I sure hope so! This morning we are going to meet BIL, SIL, & FIL for breakfast. They live about an hour north of us and FIL wants to meet at 7:30 so much for sleeping in. On any weekday DS is up by 5:30, he likes to read in bed before he gets up. He's not up yet this morning. Guess I better go wake him so we can get going. He has a lacrosse game at 11:30 and our foster son has lacrosse practice at 3:00. His game is tomorrow afternoon when it's supposed to be rainy with a high in the 50's.

Sounds like a busy day!!!

I woke up this morning and said, "Wow!" I don't have anything planned for today! How can that be possible????? Of course, now it's half over and I haven't accomplished one single thing (except scheduling a playdate for the kids later this afternoon!)

Good Morning All! Nothing much planned for today. It's storming and should be all weekend. I guess that means cleaning and laundry which I didn't do all week. Then again, a couch and a good book might be a good idea. The Cubs are playing today, so I call the couch and the TV for gametime!!!

Our travel agent has our shore excursions and palo reservations. We decided to take her up on her offer of getting up in the middle of the night. With10 people, 4 staterooms, and the families all intermixed in the staterooms, she can work her magic. Plus, I won't get blamed if something doesn't happen quite right...
