Good news on the tax return! I haven't even got all my stuff from my former employer from last year to do my return!

Look forward to more updates on the trips!

We only had the one to get and as soon as we did, Mike went online. We originally were told anytime between the 9th and 19th......the 19th would have given me a heart attack....since most things depended on me needing the money when booking!!

Oh man Laurie I am so sorry. That's what sucks about renting is being at the whim of the owners. I am so sorry. I will pray for you that something amazing comes along. Glad you got your refund. I got mine as well but all my state went to bills and I have to put my Fed in Savings to buy a new car this summer. So NO extra money for me this year. Oh well nothing else new LOL

Yeah, it sucks.....but that's the game of renting! We'll just be on the look out & have everyone we know in the area keeping an ear out as well!!

Wow, I love the Disney Movie Night. Have you done a Princess and The Frog Night? I could imagine, Jambalya, Gumbo, Po' Boy's and for Desert beignet's! Very creative. Do you know anyone else who does those??? We usually just watch the new releases but no themed dinner. You mind if I borrow some magic?

We haven't done that one yet.....we've done Lilo-n-Stitch, Chicken Little, Monster's Inc and now Tangled. You're right......Princess & the Frog would be a fun one. Mike makes a mean Gumbo and Shrimp Po Boys. He's even made Beignets........so that would be a good one!!!

Feel free to use any of the ideas you want. There is a thread on the DIS for themed movie nights~~Here

Awesome! I will have to take pictures if we do one and I'll let you know. We are waiting to see if my wife is able to take time off from her new job. That is what is holding up us confirming a trip to the land, if we can't go, this is a good way to get some magic until we can go. Thanks again.

After taking a bit of a break with sick kids.....I figured I should get back to this report!!

After we watched the Phineas and Ferb show, we headed back to CarsLand. We went to use our FP for Radiator Springs Racers but it was broke down, so we let Mike get pictures from around the area, now that the lights were coming on. (the rest of us found a place to go sit & feed Michayla.





A couple different settings on the camera.....I like both versions:





Mator!



The signs behind Flo's V-8 Cafe (also an area you can see the racers speed by).













More pics of the rock formations around the racers.

At this point, we heard a familiar sound of the racers on the track....so we headed back to get in line.

Here's our FP's for Radiator Springs Racers.



We headed through the line and sent off to the wheelchair line. We had a car being loaded & a group of 3 in front of us.....so our wait shouldn't be too long.



Then we hear that un-favorable announcement that the ride is down. We all waited, hoping it would get going again. As we waited, more pics were taken.





Well, the CM's started letting us know that it could be a while before it would be up and running again. We asked if we could wait, just in case. (besides, it was pouring out right now).





The CM's said we could wait if we wanted, but it could take up to an hour (or more).....we had a 7pm dinner ressie so we had time to kill. So we hung out and got a few more pics.













The CM's were great and chatted with us for quite a while. Unfortunately, after waiting 45 minutes or so.....word came to the CM's that this was an extensive break down and they were unsure when (or if) it would reopen that night. So since we were pretty much the only ones left in the wheelchair line.....they gave us 2 FP's (both good for 6 people) to ride any ride in DCA. Unfortunately, this was our last day in the park & it was not likely we would come back after dinner. Since we had told them that.....he also gave me 2 FP's (both good for 6 people) that are dated OPEN for us to use in the future. So I have those FP's that I'll be taking to DL at the end of the month to use!!

So we headed out into the rain & made our way back out of CarsLand.
