Hi Laurie!

I haven't read your whole PTR yet, but wanted to pop in and say hi!

I read the first page and can totally relate. We originally planned to go to WDW but were sidelined by a number of unfortunate circumstances. I'm sorry you experienced so much loss this year. I hope this trip starts a new trend of happiness for your family. If you're anything like me, there's nothing like a Disney trip to refocus on the positive.

We got a similar awesome discount since mom is joining us. The senior discount was 30% at PPH for our stay.

I look forward to reading more about your adventure!

See you at Trader Sam's

Thanx, we're hoping this trip changes the "vibe" we've been living this year too!! Disney is the thing that keeps me sane and gives us something to look forward to. I'm hoping it's the spark you need as well and things take a positive turn for you!!!

That's a nice discount you got!!! I hope I can keep one kid employed at Disney to take advantage of their discounts in the future.......

Looking forward to meeting up with you!!!!

Hey Laurie subbing in. LOVE your trip reports. They are always so detailed and fun. Your kids are so lucky. You are such a fun mom with the movie nights and all the fun stuff you plan for them on your trips. I know you are dissapointed about DW but you still will have an awesome time. Looking forward to seeing you on the 7th. Are you doing a ressie? You can pm me with the details.

It is also getting me excited for our trip. We leave a month from next Thurs (the 29th). Our trip is also pretty well planned and we just need to buy our Regan Museum tickets.

Can't wait to see and hear everything you did!!

See you on the 7th!!

Hi Kelly!!

I'm not super disappointed about missing out on WDW.....it's a bucket list thing for me, but going "home" will be so much easier on the twins.......so I feel we made the right decision in switching.

The plan is to meet up at the Old Spaghetti Factory on the 7th. I'm not exactly sure if we set a time yet. (thinking around 7pm) I'm hoping someone local will be able to call them and give them an estimated head count. I think we're going to be a pretty big group (maybe they have an area for large groups??). I'll send out another message on FB to get a count on everyone that's going and hopefully someone will take the reins in finding us seats.......lol Probably shouldn't show up at their doors and go......group of 40 people!!!

How fun you're going to the Reagan Museum......people keep posting cute pins and such they're getting from there!! You're trip will be here before you know it......time seems to be flying right now!!

Looking forward to seeing you and the girls (is your mom joining in??)!!!!
