Your family is precious!!

We will be there at the same time, too. That making June a holiday is killing us , but it just causes too much stress to take the children out of school. It was easier when they were younger.

Looking forward to more! You are doing great!

Thank you for the comment on my family, I guess I'll keep them
Yes maybe they are long lost cousins or something! I was always cracking up reading your trippie when you would talk about your hubbie too
Thanks again for joining

I know yeah!!! You know, that is our current problem... We usually drive everywhere just b/c it is easier with 3 kids and all.. so that was our plan, but now with the cost of gas, I am not sure anymore?? We'll have to wait and see what the flighs look like alittle closer (hubbie works for the big airline here)

Are you all driving??

Holy Guacamole! I think we are related!

I have a Grumpy DH, a 10ydd who is a drama queen/tween, a shy sensitive 8ydd and a wild and crazy and quite hysterical 5y ds. So the genders are off but man when I read your descriptions I thought "Hey, I know these people!".

Only 3 weeks away, WOO HOO for you!

Looking forward to reading along!

I can't wait to hear where your ADR's are. I have an obsession with ADR's, I just can't help obsessing over mine and everyone elses.
I'm looking forward to more.

I had looked into flying, but it would be more expensive for us to fly right now then drive. So, I budgeted about twice what I budgeted last year for gas. If the gas prices will just hold for right now, I think we will be okay. I am almost afraid to look at the gas stations when I drive by these days, because it always seems to be about ten cents more than last time. Then, I find myself doing math in my head to see what it will cost to get to WDW!

I don't mind driving too much except for that stretch between Macon and the Florida line where it seems like it goes on FOREVER!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you to find good ticket prices.

Thanks Allyson for joining us I know, as I was writing "their' description I felt bad that it seemed more negative than positive but they are good kids, they just have "some" issues here and there
I'll have to hop on over and check out your PTR next

For those of you reading this, thanks for following along

So what did HE do??


Yes you are all right about the non involved party, now suddenly having an opinion about everything!!!

Every so often he will ask, “now what are we doing in Disney?” Where are we going on such such day or “Do we have hoppers ?” or my all time favorite “ tell me again, the plan?” Hello… honey learn the plan, live it , love it and KNOW it!!!

Ok so after he decided to take an interest suddenly on where we would be eating, I showed him the menus and told him all our options. I of course was soo excited to have scored all the favorites such as 50’s PTC, WCC, Ohana dinner and Bk,, Chef Mickey’s, Kona , Coral Reef and Le Cellier!!! Did he not know how lucky we were???

So buzz kill number one, he really had no interest in going to 50’s or WCC didn’t like the menu and doesn’t like attention drawn to him…( He would die if he knew I was writing this PTR…)ssshh

Ok, I wasn’t crazy about the menus either, but thought the kids would have fun. I gave in to that one and agreed to cancel those two.. Again I knew I had way to many ADR’s for our time frame and budget, so I was prepared to cancel a few. But not the ones that everyone talks about, not the ones I was excited about trying. So I also knew I had wayyy to many character meals, and when they added that lovely “holiday surcharge” Chef Mickey’s was more than the others so xlnd that too.

Now, my hubby’s bday is right before we leave, and we will also be there over Father’s day . So my plan was to celebrate his bday on arrival at Ohana’s for dinner. Then to celebrate Father’s day with a Lunch at Coral Reef or Le Cellier the day before and dinner on Father’s day at Kona .. Sounds like a great plan right??

Well again after looking at the menu’s he just wasn’t into Ohana’s or Coral Reef! What are you kidding me? Look again please!!! Nope, doesn’t like them but did say Le Cellier caught his eye and he was fine with Kona. He was not and is not thrilled with Ohana’s b/c of how much $$ it will be , and Emma will probably eat bread and take one bite of something and be done. So hard to justify paying those prices when you just know they aren’t going to eat anything! Since we aren’t on the DDP , we do have to be cost conscious of what things cost etc..

I have had my heart set on ohana’s,, I think the food looks amazing and I think the kids will love it! Since we aren’t’ doing the other fun things like WCC, or 50’s I decided I am not giving this one up! So Happy Birthday we are keeping it!

Now I was a little disappointed about him not liking Coral Reef, again I thought the kids would love it. But I also like the menu better at Le Cellier (I think) so agreed to xlnd Coral Reef and we will do lunch the day before at Le Cellier..

I have been asking everyone what characters they wanted to eat with? My hubby’s choice was Goofy, but silly me kept getting Pluto and Goofy mixed up! I know** gasp**… I had breakfast planned for him at Ohanas with Sticth since that was also my son’s request, thinking that goofy would be there. Once I figured out the mistake I made I xlnd and rebooked Tusker House for him.. We are all very excited to eat with “The Ducks” and DH gets his goofy…

Now Emma wants to eat with all of them! So cute, but we all know that can’t happen. So of course she wants the princesses!!! Now I am confident (although I didn’t try) that we could have eaten in the castle, I settled on the Storybook Lunch at Epcot. Now if we HAD been on the DDP , you can bet we would be eating at the castle! At first I booked it for all of us, then I decieded to cut some costs and asked my son and DH if they “really” wanted to eat with the princesees too?? Of course Joey was like “ No way mom, not if we don’t have to” ok problem solved. It would be me and the girls and the boys will do there own thing for lunch.

Now last time we went, we ate at CP which was so nice. Since Lauren and Joey remembered that and loved it, that is what they picked. Great b/c that is my choice as well…

What else did we/I decide to add and try??

Your PTR has been fun to read! Thanks for the post on my PTR and hope you keep following along. Your kids are so adorable! I know what you mean about a current pic of them all together...I had to really look for one so now I am inspired to take more!
Quick question for you....How long is the drive from Atlanta to WDW? I haven't got to this yet in my PTR, but after our week in WDW, just me, DH and the kids are driving to Marietta, GA from WDW to spend a week there with DH's family. What kind of drive are we looking at?
Can't wait to hear more about your trip!
