I agree with you on the last part, but I admit that I have never done Stitch's Great Escape - mainly because of the poor reviews I've heard. We did get a photo op with it!

We liked everything about it EXCEPT for the part where he runs across your shoulders. That part really does hurt

Great update Carissa. I love that Stitch ran off with Stitch.

We didn't get any Photopass pics our first trip, but I didn't realize you had to ask them. Other theme parks they attack you.

Whew, glad you got Stitch back. The picture of you and Sully is just great. I'd definitely say that Space Mountain is much scarier than Haunted Mansion. Give me grim grinning ghosts over hills in the dark any day!

It's just too difficult to get all 3 of my boys to pose for pictures!

I got Stitch from Kathy - KathyRN137 - who got him from Buzz - MontanaDisneyFan - who got him from Heidi - blue_river (is that the correct order Heidi??). Now he's out in California with Keith - Goofster57. There's more of an explanation at the end of my PTR.

No - I didn't read that! I'll have to go check it out.

Hey There just caught up these last pages and just laughed with the stitch story! How funny -- so IN character for that CM to "steal" the other stitch I guess that was the most fun he had all day !! Cute.

And those are some good photos! I like the ones you made. Your pics are great too! I am glad you are taking photos of Port Orleans.

Looking forward to more !

I know you have pictures of your family at the beginning, but it wasn't until I saw those family shots with Sorcerer Mickey that I realized just how much your boys look like your husband. Too cute!

I just started reading your TR tonight and I'm really enjoying it. We drove down from Northern VA (Winchester) in Jan. and we ate at the same Cracker Barrel in Emporia. We must have had the same waiter because it took us forever too and my dh commented that we were only stopping at fast food places from now on.

We've stayed at both Windsor Hills and POR. I loved our short time at POR, but you can't beat Windsor Hills for the amount of space and amenities for the money. I would stay in either place again.

I saw you on another TR and decided to pop over and read your's.

You are doing a great job. I love all the pictures especially of your cute boys.

My DH and I stayed at POR last Sept. I loved it. I thought the food court had some great food. I really like the boat to DTD too! We took the buses and didn't have any problems.

You have some good tips on here. Keep up the good work.

Our youngest is definitely a mini Chuck.

Glad to have you along! Yes, Windsor Hills is a really great place - especially when you have a bigger family.
