Nobby's Gnomies... heading to WDW in April 2010

Here's the story, of some lovely ladies, who met while trip planning on the DIS…

Well, I don't have time to come up with additional lyrics to be sung to the tune of the Brady Bunch but you get the point.

It all started some 250 pages and 3,000++ posts ago and has turned into a group of friends who are there for each other to laugh and cry together, support each other and yes, countdown to Disney trips . While we've all been chatting for a while now, we welcome any new faces who want to come along with all of our nuttiness (is that a word?). Seriously, we’re relatively normal.

So what do you need to know about us?

- We are planning a trip in April 2010 for Flower & Garden festival - a mix of attendees, some solo, some w/ hubby, some w/ kids

- Occasionally we do trip planning on this thread but for the most part it's chatting amongst friends

- Speaking of chatting, we have our own chat room, thanks to Julezdisney http://disaway.blogspot.com

- We have a gnome. Yes, a gnome. His name is Nobby. I'm not sure I can explain but I will try. At some point as we were talking about Flower & Garden someone (Lady Lallie) mentioned her love of the garden gnome. Paula (Iluvcrush) was quick to confess her secret love of gnomes as well. From there Paula decided we needed our own gnome and Nobby journeyed from the land of travelocity.com to meet his new family. Since he's joined us, he has visited WDW with Jen (jenjolt) and also Chicago with Julez. You can read an ongoing account of his WDW trip with Jen here or about his Chicago trip here.

The trip planning we have done can be found here:
Where in the world is Nobwick the gnome?
Magic Kingdom ADR list
Epcot ADR list
Disney's Hollywood Studios & Animal Kingdom ADR list
Resort ADRs


Should anyone be brave or crazy enough, our first thread can be found here There's Gnome Place Like WDW... The Mickey Marcettes Kicking Up Dirt in 2010

So to my “old” friends and new friends alike… here is a toast to the next 250 pages, 3,000 posts, daily laughs and friendship.

I agree P, I'm just happy to have made it onto the first page! I knew there was NO way I would be first, leave it to LL That's why she wins the posting award around here.

Bring on more gnomie madness!!

Blech. That doesn't sound fun.

Today is a slower than usual day at my work.

Which is giving me time to obsess over my Disney Itinerary. I think I will be calling Disney this evening.

I wish I had a slow day -- I really want to finish the book I am reading -- I only have about 70 more pages.

What changes are you planning on making?
