Hi everyone we are back and feeling very sad at the moment.. WE had a GREAT time, best vacation ever!!!! I am trying to get caught up on laundry etc... and get my photopass pics added to the group..

It will probably be another day or two before I can start the TR... How do I get this moved over to the TR board, I noticed that some of you already had that done?

Yes Jenn, I wonder if there will be any surprise "guests" in my TR???? you'll have to wait and see....

I hope everyone else who recently went had a great time as well.... All the tips I learned in my planning etc, REALLY paid out in more ways than one! TGM was right on also....

stay tuned.....

Oh, and to answer your question, I PMed OhMari to ask her to move mine. I think she noticed that others had become TRs and just moved them.

Looking forward to it! I'll be jealous if you ran into anyone. I was really looking for all you guys. (Of course, I probably would have been to shy to say anything.)

Sunday Day 1 Arrival day....June 8



So the day finally arrived!!! Today is the day we drive to Disney Yeah!!!
We woke up about 4:45 and started getting ready, we opened the kids doors and turned on the hall light to start to wake them. Joey came out on his own completely dressed and ready to go little after 5. I told him to go grab something to eat. I started to wake the girls and got Emma dressed, Lauren did the last sticker on the countdown calendar ,they had some pop tarts and we were ready to go! We pulled out of our drive way at 6:00 am.

It was a pretty uneventful drive down, except it took longer than I had planned and thought it would. We stopped for Lunch at a Bob Evans which was a mistake the food was horrible and it took forever, that added an extra hour to the trip! I don’t know why I agreed to stop there, we never stop at sit down places when we travel it is always in and out super quick. I think my DH was worried that our room wouldn’t be ready anyway so what was the hurry… The hurry was I wanted to get there ASAP!!!! Plus I knew the kids would want to go swimming etc..

So we finally made there , it took almost 9 hours! Like I said, whyyyy longer then I had planned. I was doing the driving on the final leg so I was alittle worried that I wouldn’t get the pictures I wanted when we pulled in. I was telling DH to get the camera ready…

We were soo excited when we started spotting the signs and boy was I smiling when we drove under this!!!!




And then when we pulled into this.. The guard man said the infamous words everyone is waiting to hear “ welcome home”



We told the kids to go sit over by the little TV they had showing the old cartoons and we got in line to check in. They started to give us bldg 26, but I said I had requested bldg14 or 18... So they did a double check and gave us bld 18 room 1834 second level courtyard view. The girl checking us in was as sweet as could be, gave us our 1st time buttons etc.. but had NO clue how the bus system worked etc.. she started to tell me that the buses don’t start running until 45 min before park opening…. Umm.. No sweetie that isn’t correct but thanks anyway..

We went over to the concierge and got our undercover tourist tickets added to our room keys, got our print outs for our ADR! Then off to drive our car around to bldg 18 and unload.. The kids were soo excited to see the hotel and get their swimsuits on!

It was a nice room, I loved that the sinks were outside of the “potty” area and the kids loved the curtain to separate the room and make their own private dressing room. We didn’t really unpack yet b/c the kids were ready to go check out the pool and slide!



So we put our suits on and tried to find the pool, the signs took us way out of our way to the pool, on our return from the pool we quickly found a short cut tho.

We had ADR’s @ 6:20 that night, so we told the kids we only had about an hour or so before we had to get ready and we weren’t sure yet if we were going to drive or take the bus to the MK and do the monorail to the Poly.

Here are some pictures of the pool, and kids enjoying the slide.. The line was pretty long that afternoon so they only did it a few times and Emma wasn’t ready to try it out just yet.






It was pretty crowded but we managed to get lucky and get a chair right up front by the stairs so I could watch Emma when I wasn’t in the pool.

After about an hour we went back up to the room to get ready for our Dinner @ Ohana’s….

How did we decide to travel to Ohana’s? Did we have any Dis spottings?? Did we enjoy the food? What surprise do I have in store for DH??
Stay tuned….
