Yes, it was right there at the swan, you just take the water taxi to the swan from Hollywood Studios, and the water taxi is a very nice ride too, with alot to see.

Yes, we could go as far as Port Orleans, it was a very nice ride, it's already a must on our to do list for next year!!

We had an awesome trip too but I was so focused on getting the most bang for our buck that I had my kids literally running from place to place without even asking them what they wanted to do. Your kids look so happy and relaxed. I am learning alot from your trip report that I will hopefully take with us on our next WDW vacation (Dec 2010-we hope).

Great job. Can't wait until the next installment!
Aww, thanks, I did do A LOT of planning for this trip, and because of such a big gap in my kid's ages, I wanted to make sure they were all having the best trip, and I think I did a pretty good job at that.

Thanks, It was something taking them there!

Some fun news to share!!!!!!

Ok, so Manny and I never technically got married. We've been together for 11 years (next month) and had Emily within the first year, so we just never planned a wedding. I of course refer to and consider him my husband, but it's not official.


Well guess what we are getting married next year. We are going to get married on the 4th of July!!!!!! And consider our next year's big Disney Trip our Honeymoon!!!!

HOW'S THAT FOR FUN!!!!

We really just decided this last night, and we are both really excited. He already told the guys at work, he beat me!!! I have not really talked to anyone yet.

So Joy (my SIL) if you're on the disboards today you may hear it here first!!! and Nicole(Makdyn) you may hear it first as well if you're on before I talk to you again today!!!

So I now have a wedding and a Disney Trip to plan for next year!!!! Oh, boy, I'm excited today!!!!

And I never thought that i'd be saying I have a wedding to plan
I'm going to tell the girls tonight, i'll let you know what they think of this. And we'll call Anthony tonight and tell him too, he has always wanted us to get married!!!! When he was younger he would have us act out little "play weddings" too cute, I know he's gonna be excited!!!

My pre trip report for next year's trip is gonna be alot of fun, I hope you're all around for it

How fun! My husband and I talked about that when we were at Disney-- I told him I wished we weren't married so we could plan a Disney wedding and/or honeymoon-- he laughed but said he thought the same thing!

We actually went to Disneyland California two days after we got married in 93! But we lived in California at the time so it wasn't quite the same!

Have fun with your planning!

Planning a wedding is almost as much fun as planning a Disney trip! LOL!!


Your "down day" looks incredible! Your pictures really capture how much fun you are all having. I'm glad Manny enjoyed driving the boat! I am not at all a boat girl so I don't see my family doing that any time soon, but it looks like you all had a blast!

I love the Dumbo that Lizzie bought. VERY cute!

Keep the great updates coming!

Congratulations Pam!! Your girls are going to be so excited! I can't wait to hear of their reactions! They'll be your little bridesmaids! Awww! are you going to wear white? Just kidding!!!!

I can't wait to hear all of the planning details! I loved planning my wedding! I think I should have been a wedding planner!

Your next vacation is going to be even more special now! You will have to plan a romantic night for you and Manny!

I know, I don't know which one will be more fun. I think it will be equally fun to be planning both, at least i'll have something to take my mind of off Disney every once in a while, because I AM OBSESSED!!!
