Wazowskilover this is a great TR.

My husband and I are taking our 2 girls in November and we can't wait so it is fun to feel like we are there now through your trip. Thanks for sharing.

If you plan on going atleast 2 times, I think an AP is worth it. I'd say, if you'd like, we can play a game of how many times you can go to DLR in a year Its a super fun game HAHA
Oh I'm definitely down for that game. But in a calendar year or like...a year from today? I say a year from today to be fair. Now my wallet will be in trouble!

Eric's mom doesn't speak English, but she understands a little bit of it.

Patrick was totally game to speaking spanish so it was totally cool the whole weekend.

Its funny because I used to have a live in sitter when I was little and spanish was my first language. They kept me in bilingual classes until was in 3rd grade because they kicked me out (they needed more room for people who needed to learn to speak english!). But I don't remember it! BOO. How about you with Jesus, does his family speak a lot of spanish?

The gumbo is good! Its different from the gumbo in the BB or at Cafe Orleans. It has more of a tomato based stew and its more spicy. You should try it!!
Thatís how Jesusí Dad is. Well he speaks English, very little, but enough to kind of get by. The boys all speak English and Spanish and so does his Mom. His Dad talks to me in Spanish and English and I understand. I usually answer in English. I feel embarrassed too. I understand quite a bit of Spanish, so when the family speaks Spanish, I usually understand the gist of the conversation, but speaking back in Spanish is a different story. My Mom speaks fluent Spanish, so who knows why I donít!

The gumbo sounds soo good. Iím getting that next time instead of the clam chowder!

Jasmine, not only did my friend not get me any goodies at the Disney Store (actually, I think it is World of Disney) in NYC, she didn't even go into the store at all! TOTAL bungFACE! I have been requesting that she visit it for over a year, and she didn't go in. I thought she HAD gone in and just not gotten me anything - but she confessed that she skipped it altogether! (She said, "Well, if it had been in Times Square like it was SUPPOSED to be, then I would have gone in...") Of course, I am different in that I couldn't imagine going to NYC and SKIPPING the largest Disney Store in the world, but that's just me! You know how big OUR World of Disney store is in DTD - imagine one that is bigger than that! I have lost people in the DTD World of Disney before. It is scary! In fact, when I go back to try to get an 'extra' of that Mickey/paint shirt in WoD, I will probably not find it on the first try! I will likely skip right over it.

I want more Trip Report! I have been referring people a lot lately to your TR and Courtney's for recent Minnie & Friends pictures, and they are getting the benefit of seeing your great TR in progress, so keep it coming!

You said you love the movie "Love Actually," correct? I remember that from last year. Bumbershoot and I were discussing it over on her TR thread and I said I thought I remembered that you were a fan as well.

I went to the WOD store in NYC and it was HUGE. HUGE HUGE. Massive. I remember getting lost, it being really stuffy and my parents being really annoyed because they wanted to leave.

I don't remember if I bought anything though.

I cannot even imagine a World of Disney larger than the one we have in DTD. Yikes! I literally lost Shawn in that store and realized we have to make a meeting place just in case we get separated in the future! Was the NYC WOD in Times Square when you went or was it on 55th Street? I thought they had some cute Minnie Statue of Liberty knick knacks, from a picture I saw. My friend would have no idea what to get anyway - even if she had gone in. If it is not a technical gadget store, she is out of her element.

Oh, that's great, blame it on the little guy. How original. He must've read the schedule wrong with his one eye.

HAHA! Oh, I know. Well, if we counted a calendar year, I'd totally win. Maybe we should just do that, and declare me winner

Oh goodness, I know EXACTLY what you mean Courtney. His mom is exactly the same way. She can get by with little things here and there and she comprehends conversational english, but she can't speak the language. She speaks to me in Spanish and I speak back to her in English. Its weird, but it works. I feel bad for doing it, but I'm so embarrassed about my Spanish. Eric says I speak just fine, but I'm not confident about it. His siblings all pretty much translate back and forth for us when we're completely immersed in a conversation and both of us have no problem with it. She's really great to talk to so its fine.

You should give the gumbo a try, its pretty darn good!

Well thats a waste, not going to the WoD store over there! I bet its ridiculously fantastic! I've never been to NY but I've always wanted to go. Kaycee is not ridiculously far from NY, so I'm hoping on one of my visits to her place that we'll take a road trip one day. Who knows though!

Thanks for being my PR here in the DIS I'm so behind on posting the rest of the days, I'm just feeling overwhelmed with the photos to begin day two! It will happen though, I promise!

Oh, I DO love that movie Love Actually. Its so good I haven't watched it in a while, but my mom and I were just having a conversation about the movie. How serendipitous!!! Its just an overall feel good movie and I like how all the characters connect in some way.

And you know what? Jesus' family that lives IN Mexico, I swear their Spanish is so much harder to understand to me. I don't know, but I can't understand it as easily as I can the Spanish I hear here. I understand when I hear people talking at the store or whatever, but when his family comes up, I'm like what? I think they speak faster? Who knows.

Thats what Eric says about how they speak Spanish in Mexico! He said he doesn't understand them sometimes. It totally makes me nervous about going there because I'll be totally screwed! HAHA. I think its the words they use too because they are more complex
