Just noticed this link in your signature! I can't wait to read all about it, especially since we are going close to that time this year!
Did Yoda love the characters or find them scary?

Hi Tracy! December was such a great time to go! You will love it!
(You'll have to keep reading to see what thought of the characters )

Hi Bev!

You're started!!!!!! Can't wait to hear all about it!

You've really got to keep a close eye on these Grandpa's nowadays, otherwise they get into everything!

Speaking from a Grandpa's point of view, he probably wasn't lost, he was hiding!

Hi Di! How are things! I have to finish reading your trippie! Life got busy somewhere around the Biergarten--can't wait for the exciting conclusion. Those grandpas are pretty sneaky!

So true. Have you gone with your grandkids to WDW?

That's a big YES!!!!! I've taken two of them, DGD13 & DGS11, to the World five times and will probably be going again this year. My other DGD10 hasn't been able to go when I can but hopefully she will be with us someday soon.

What a good grandpa you are! I think multi-generational trips are lots of fun and create many great memories. Do you have any tips for activities the whole family can enjoy? I'm still working on that one!

I think the best tip is not to try to do too much at once. You miss a lot if you find yourself running between rides. Stop for ice cream, take a break & enjoy the Resort pool. The Charactor Dinners, Lunches or Breakfasts are great for kids of all ages. I'm a 69 yr. old kid at the moment! The Dinner Shows are always fun.

The saying "getting there is half the fun" is true.

I read on one TR that a little girl's most enjoyable moment was the bus ride to the MK.

I'll be watching for your updates.
