Amy, Please keep us updated on the jac & co's trip. You and your husband are GREAT! I just hope one day I can do this for my family. I have a Dsis that probably will never be able to take her DS and DH to WDW.

I am so glad you came back to tell us how it went. I have been following since you were first asking for ideas. It brought tears to my eyes. This is going to be a special trip I hope you all enjoy. We went last year, there were 15 of us, my mother said she could not miss seeing the grandkids for the first time in Disney and she wasn't disappointed. She even invited our inlaws to come with us. It was great. Enjoy your trip!

I got a chuckle about what you wrote because I thought the same thing. How can we ever eat Chinese food together again? If we did, they would all skip the meal and go straight for the fortunes cookies! How disappointed they would be with plain ol' fortunes!

All the best to you and yours!
Where will you be staying, princessmom? We will be at the POP.

Hi We are so excited about this trip-now more than ever since we announced the surprise! We did want to post things like the ADRs we made. Would that be silly to do? Do you think anyone would actually be interested??!

Talking about Westerly sure brought back a lot of memories! We lived on Shore Road and I spent many a day with my friends on Misquamicut Beach(forgive the spelling, it has been a long time!) May I ask how old you are? Just wondering if perhaps we went to school together at Dunn's Corners Elementary!
Amy

Amy, I am 35. But I did not go to Dunn's Corners, but my husband did and my kids do now. We live in Dunn's Corners. It's so funny that you lived here when you were little. And even stranger that you went to Dunn's Corners.

I would like to thank you all for supporting my mother in this surprise, and I would also like to thank my mother for this surprise!!!!! She had always been the best in my eyes , but this time she has certainly outdone herself, dad too of course . The thought that I get to share my first trip to WDW with all of the people I love the most certainly brings tears to my eyes and the goose bumps shortly follow. I have always dreamed of going and I may be a 25 year old woman but my poor DH will have 3 children to look after on this trip since I am sure I will be the same as our 5yo DD. I have been reading posts on here and just happened to email my mom about this site, what a small world it is that this would be the one that she uses as well. Anyway, thank you all and Mom Dad you guys are the best of the best.
