Mad, so right! we don't have to worry about "the kids will feel bad if we go on that b/c they can't yet or they are afraid". We could jsut do it!!! I also try to go w/ girlfirends every other year to do the things kids & guys don't want to do...BUT, that's another thread! Deb

I always kid that if I went with the girls (who are all Disney freaks), every morning, we would be jumping on the beds sceaming we are in Disney! Guys do not tend to enjoy those kinds of things

We are also childless by choice and we love Disney. My DH has been going since he was a kid; but I went for the first time on our honeymoon. I have been to DL before; but WDW in better.

Everytime we see kids having meltdowns, we laugh and walk in the other direction. We find the funniest times are on the bus after the park closes and the parents have had it and the kids are cranky. We are even more thankful that we chose kitties.

OMG -- you all are 3 pages ahead of me...

Tiffany -- how are things w/you all? Is Lestat playing w/his cousins yet? or are they still separated? And how are things on the job front?

Regarding the romantic comments -- ITA! DH & I have been there numerous times & always make it romantic. I think the romance is more in what you do & how you approach it than the things there. Long, leisurely dinners, cocktails @ epcot on the water, walking along & holding hands at the Boardwalk, picnic @ AK in a quiet corner.... It can be very romantic if you are not running around like a loony bird.

As for kids, we have 1 dog & 3 cats... that keeps us plenty busy. I figure I have a hard enough time keeping myself straight, no way I could supervise a kid. Honestly I'd rather not have kids than be that mother you read about in the paper who forgot her kid in the car, or left the kid for 10 minutes to run to the store or what ever.... If I can't do it right, I'm not going to do it at all (and don't tell me you haven't read those stories in the news).

We are planning a trip to WDW in 2011 (assuming DH lands a job here pretty soon). Going to go w/the in-laws. I think FIL will have a lot of fun. His fiance...not so sure. She likes to cook and host parties so we decided to go during Food & Wine. I'm hoping she will enjoy the tastings and speakers. That is the one thing we struggle with... she just doesn't like much. DH tries to include them but even when she goes it is obvious she is not enjoying herself. Guess I can't complain...I've heard of & seen some real nasty MIL's. So if our MIL just quietly doesn't enjoy herself we should complain too much.

OMG...PWI'ing so I should put the key board down (but I won't )

he's been coming out on his own a bit, but still hisses and growls at the boy cats and runs back to our door wanting in...the girl he doesn't have a problem with, but as of right now he doesn't spend enough time out to really play with her...he gets too scared and upset at the boys...
