I am still upset that they don't make the Hello Kitty clogs in adult sizes

Here's my trip report from last year http://www.disboards.com/showthread....ght=BeckyScott (had to dig around a bit to find it).

I'm hoping this year is similar. You know the drill. Nothing is going to go the way I planned, exactly, but overall a great experience.

The heat is a concern, but I'm trying to figure out how much hotter it will be in July than it was in June. It was pretty darn hot last year, we had one of those water-sprayers and used it like crazy, and kept everyone hydrated. The heat seemed to affect me worse than the kids. And except I think for the first day and the AK day (which was shorter anyway) we did the afternoon break.

Justin did have earplugs for many of the attractions, I figured he would want them, and that took care of the noise problems.

The parks weren't awful crowded, though. Sure at the evening shows, it was wall-to-wall, but just walking around during the day it wasn't bad. So I'm not sure what we'll be in for this year.

Most of June is expected to be at an 8 so I don't think it will be that much more crowded. The ear plugs really are a good idea. It seems like your boys have an idea what they can handle and what they can't. Lois

Good News

Went in to have my follow on my foot. The bad news is it is still broke No magic healing for me. But the good news is it is healing as expected and I will be almost Good as New in about 4 weeks.

I hope this post finds everyone well and happy in this New Year. I can say how thankful this has made me for all the blessing I have. My life has been good. Lois

Hi Everyone,
We just got back from the World on January 7 and we are so anxious for our July trip. We were ready before we even left there to be back. We always feel like that.

Isn't is nice coming home knowing you are going back so soon? It must take away that feeling of, what I call, "The Disney Blues." When you spent so much time planning, it's taken up a year or more of your life and in a week, it's all over.

But I don't have that now!! In fact, this is the day that I had marked as my 180 day out for ADRs. Even though I can't make them, it still makes me excited because I know it's getting closer!!!

Yes, it is nice coming home and knowing we will be back there again in just 169 days. My DH and I still get the "Disney Blues" though. I do think the Blues could be a lot worse if we didn't have another one planned. We were suppose to make all our ADR's on January 2, but we have to wait longer now. That's okay, it gives us a little longer to make good decisions on where we want to eat.
