So did you actually check in online?

I think I like the second set of feathers, but I'm a guy.

I did check-in online. I wasn't going to because secretly I thought to myself "if I check-in with a person, maybe they'll see it's my birthday today and give me an upgraded room", but then I decided that whatever happens, we're still in Disney and I'll at the very least get what I paid for, so no biggie.

I like the second set of feathers also, they're just huge. They must stand a foot and a half higher than my head and I can only imagine that might be annoying for me, and for the guests behind me on whatever rides we do.

Hmmmmmmmm.

I loved online check in when we did it. They also gave us a very close room to everything so who knows if we got some pixie dust thrown in there.

As for the headdresses... the first one is cute! I think it'll be easier to manage in the parks. The 2nd one is awesome but I think it might get annoying after awhile.

I promise I'm close to getting a first installment of a TR soon!

Yeah, online checkin was really smooth for me too. We got what we requested, and that's all I was really hoping for.

The word "soon" always reminds me of Spaceballs. "When will then be now?" "Soon." "How soon?"

Alright folks, it's that time already. "What time is that?" you may be thinking. Well I'll tell ya, it's time for....


THE SINGLE DIGIT DANCE!!!!

(The "Cabbage Patch" is my personal fave)



I can't believe that in only 9 short days, we'll finally be there. We'll get to see the new rooms at CSR. We'll get to have dinner at bluezoo. We'll get to see the MK for the first time in over 2 years. We'll get to celebrate my birthday in Disney!

I'm going to be a frazzled mess for the next 9 days, but I know it'll all be worth it in the end.

....so excited....

Woohoo!



We stayed at CSR in 2004 and it was great. The big pool is very well done and the whole resort is beautiful (and big).

Does anyone think it's worth upgrading to a hopper? It would be around $100 to add the hopper option to our 1-day tickets, which seems like a lot, but it would mean we could go to Epcot for the first part of the day to do a ride or two and maybe check our the F&W Fest until dinner and then go to MK to see Spectro and Wishes for my first time ever and for their evening hours.

Thoughts?? It's probably a silly idea, but one I wanted input on regardless.

Thanks!
I'm thinking no. Not sure what the hours are, but to pay an extra $100 to be able to go to two parks for one day seems a bit much. If you were adding hoppers for multiple days it would be different.

I guess I didn't delete that in time. I was thinking out loud and after typing it out and realizing we would only have like 3-4 hours in Epcot, I decided it wasn't worth the cost.

Thanks for the confirmation though!

De-lurking...

Congrats on the single digits! I'm sooooo close, myself, I can barely handle the anticipation!

Also -- and not like you know me, or anything, so feel free to take my opinion with a grain of salt! -- I vote for the first headdress. The second one looks cooler, and more costume-y, but it seems like it'd be a real pain in the *** to wear all night! If they're not expensive, maybe you could get them both, wear the big one for pictures, then change into the small one for the rest of the time? Though I guess that'd be a hassle, too!

Hi!!!

So happy to have someone else acknowledge that they're reading.

I don't know anyone on here with the exception of spinetnglr, so you're not the sole stranger of the bunch.

I agree that the bigger one looks cooler but might be a pain to wear all night. I did buy both, it was only $15 for the two of them, so maybe I'll take your suggestion. Bring both, start the night in the big one and when that gets too annoying, ditch it and switch to the small headband. Hmmmm. If I can fit both in my carry-on that just might work!

Well everyone, it's time for another trip related update!

With only a week to go, I figure it's time to alert all of my PTR readers that I will be Twittering/live blogging around The World.

My original idea was to only do a blog because it's super easy to post a picture and it would be one place to keep track of my trip without having to write it all down. Then, I signed up on Twitter to follow Carrie (Lurkyloo) at the D23 expo and realized how much I like the 140 characters of less. I have no self-edit at all so only having 140 characters sort of forces me to get to the point already. BUT, posting to TwitPic seems like a bit of a hassle, so I don't just want to use Twitter, if that makes sense.

So---I made a decision I know I'm going to regret, I'm going to try to do both. Any text updates, I am going to try to post in both places, but any pictures will go to the blog. I'm going to try to do a little combo of what we're doing, what we're eating, what we're riding and generally how the trip is going.

So, without further ado, here are the links.

Here is a link to follow me on Twitter.

Here is a link to follow my live blog.

I'll re-post these links closer to the day we leave in case anyone misses this update.

If you have any comments or questions that you want me to try to answer while we are down there, let me know!

Yay! Thanks, that makes me feel much better about posting! I'm a shy poster, what can I say. I generally don't want to post unless I really have something to say, but since I don't generally have something specific to say (I mean really, who does?), I end up not getting to know anybody!
