Preparing for our first on-site visit in a little over a month and, if things go well, we'll make it a yearly trip!

Fwiw, we've had the same blue-camo Mickey antenna ball for the last 8 years with a replacement snowman Mickey antenna ball kept in the door of the car for swapping only when winter rolls around.
Hey another Raleigh person! Welcome

Toward the end of the parade when they hand out stuff to the kids some lady puts her grandchildren right in front of my kids who had been there. I got pi$$ed. I did nto use any 4 letter words but I did let her know how rude she was and that she should have gotten there earlier. Maybe it was the heat gettin to me ha ha. I am usually not like that. it was still nearly 90 degrees at 11pm.
You could have used the Stealth Fart Method...surely your kids are immune to it...the others would just pass out.

Hey all. Fairly new to the forums. Just saw this thread.

My first trip to WDW was 2001 when I was 25. Went back in 2007. Both times were with my wife's parents. We're looking to go again in June 2010, don't know about the in-laws yet.

DW and I have 3 girls, 10, 7 & 4. Even our dog is a girl. When we go to the world I get my fill of princesses! But nothing makes me happier than seeing that thrill on my girl's faces.

You know, when somebody from around here hits the corn all weekend, it means a big hangover on Monday.

Keep 'em on the right paths Corn Fuzz!

Welcome itJeff! That soulds a bit familiar to me as well.

Trennr good luck this weekend. I hope you don't have any Corn Hoppers.

FedFuzz hitting the corn? I prefer whatever scotch is made from.

BTW We are at 29 DAYS!!!!! (or 1 month less 2 days)
