Good morning Snowbirds.

Well the rain has come again. . . It is just plain nasty here. Just when I thought we couldn't get anymore, it comes again. And freezing rain. I can't believe we didn't have a school delay. And of course the bus was 10 minutes late, so we stood at the bus stop for 12 minutes. In the freezing rain! I don't remember the last time we had snow. . . maybe early December. . . Very strange. This mess is supposed to turn to snow later today though. I am really starting to get worried about flight delays!

Weather fab again at 82 degrees...went to MK at rope drop and rode everything first thing (first to ride dumbo )

got haircuts for the girls and hubby (hubby even got green gel and pixie dust too) I'll post pics at a later time.

Crowds were great in the morning, then picked up later in the day.

It was a magical day,my eyes misted a few times, esp at rope drop and waiting in line to get into MK when my 2 year old was screaming singing "i know you I walked with you once upon a dream"...it was really something else

We plan to get to MGM at rope drop tomorrow too to help with the crowds...the cast members say that crowds are way up from what was anticipated..Oh well..we are enjoying ourselves.

yes...Wendy, my husband says I can rent him out.

Sweet dreams everyone.
Thanks for checking in! So glad to hear you had such a perfect day. Can't wait to hear more! Have fun at DHS today - my favorite park!

My mom is joining us on our trip and then my sister is also going to m. eet up with us on the 18th. I have 2 dd's 15 months and 3 at the end of January.

We are all packed and already on our way, well DD1 and I are. Dh and DD2 are meeting us in Vancouver on Sunday., then we fly from Seattle to Orlando.

I have managed to get most of the character dinning that we wanted and we will be spending 10 days in the parks.

So far we will be doing MK for 4 days, AK 1 day, Hollywood 2 days, Epcot 1 day. Any suggestions on what parks to do again?


This is our 3rd trip to WDW MK in the last 2 years, but we haven't done any of the other parks because of length of stays and our kids ages.
to the DIS and the Snowbirds!

Good morning all. It's yucky here today too. Last night, the freezing rain started. I thought for sure they would cancel school, but no. On the news, they keep talking about a ton of accidents. The city schools in Buffalo are closed, but not the schools in the suburbs. Bummer. I was planning on getting my hair done today, but now I don't know with all this yucky weather. I could wait another day or two.

there are certain kinds of transfers for different colors.... some transfer are made just for dark fabrics.... if I am transferring to anything but white I use the transfers for dark colors.... the only thing with the dark color transfers is you always have the white background... the ones I used for your shirts Jen is a clear background.... it was the first time I found that... love it... don't even remember where I got it...

The freezing rain came here to and we have NO SCHOOL..... my DS has a book to read and this is a great help.... he is in an honors English class... the teacher assigned each student a book to read and write a report on.... the book she assigned DS she didn't have, wasn't in the school library, wasn't at the town library, and Borders said it would take 10 days to come in.... the report is due in 2 weeks..... ... I was able to find the book at a library about 30 minutes from here... luckily they had ONE copy.... just a little annoying.... so after 5 days of looking her now has the book and has to read it all this week so he has time to write the paper... he hates to read... ... obviously he doesn't get that from his mother... ten pages and he starts dosing off... its a 244 page book.... oh well....

OMG I think I would have told that teacher if she wanted him to read the book then she needs to find it for him!! Well at least he has an extra day now. My boys hate to read too. They can read, they just don't want to read. Must be a boy thing. They'd rather be doing something else, anything else. All my friends that have girls tell me that their girls love to sit and read. I can't imagine my boys "sitting" and doing anything!!!!

Quick question, I see some discussing here about Downtown Disney hours. Do the resort buses run that late? Like if DTD is open until 11:00PM do the buses run that late too? Or will I need to take a cab? Thanks again!
Awesome! Thanks for the number! It's our third marathon (me only as a spectator). The buses seem to run as long as DTD is open. Would probably be bad form to encourage your guests to spend money but leave them behind!

I tried to read this... but I think I'll wait until book 4 and then read them both straight through! I hate cliff hangers, and I assume that book 3 has them!

The one i'm bringing on the plane with me is Dewey, the library cat. I got it for Christmas and cannot wait to start it! We'll see if I can actually read on the plane though; I have a feeling i'll be a little too excited!
I did love Dewey, to my surprise. I borrowed it from the library and it was SUPER-cute. It helps that it takes place less than 2 hours from where my DH grew up so I recognized a lot of the town names and stuff. It was definitely a nice read.

No kidding!! We had freezing rain over night... our street was a little slick. We turned left from our street on to a main road (always a challenge in good weather) and... a few hundred feet down the road was a city bus that had been in an accident. Looks like someone slid into the bus - I feel so bad for the driver (and the passengers!) when that sort of thing happens.

And now they're talking snow all day Friday - our flight is at 9:30pm. However, it sounds like annoyance level and no accumulation? Hopefully I can flee!! Last time we went in January, we got 6" of snow from the time we left the house to the time our flight took off (let me tell you: not a fun ride). But we left a few hours late and got to this GORGEOUS 80 degree sunny day in Orlando. We knew we'd made the right choice!

Two days!!

Well like Shelly said...at least he has an extra day to read it!!! I can't say I was like that...I loved to read although I'm not sure I would even assign a book report for a book I didn't have and thought might be hard to find!!! Not good planning on the teacher's part!!

I'm confused what you mean by the "white background"??? You can see the image I want to post
Haunted Mansion DISsign

I would like to do the top one and put it on a black shirt...what would be your best recommendation Wendy!!! Feel free to PM this poor soul!!!!

Ughh... it's nasty over here too! I can't stand freezing rain. The stairs, sidewalk, and road outside my house are a skating rink. I hear the main roads are decent but to get out of my area is the problem. Since I don't have four wheel drive or decent tires, i'm stuck at home for at least the next couple hours. I feel like such a weeny but I hate ice!

So, here I am, DISing until I can get to work. What a shame!

Good morning Snow Birds. No school here today as well. We have about 1/4" of ice buildup. It's supposed to turn to snow tonight (fingers crossed). So everyone that has to go out in this mess be safe.

For those concerned with the crowd levels, let me tell the folks that have not been down in January before: The crowd levels will be absolutely, positively, and undeniably LESS than regular or peak season. My guarantee (for what it's worth). It still may get quite busy with long wait times, but remember it could always be worse!

Can't believe I can say Sunday night and not put a date on it because it's THIS Sunday.
I am such a ditz I just realized you are at Pop the same time we are!!
