Tomorrow is the day! I'll try to post pics or do some kind of updates if I can. We're driving (10 hours), so it's going to be a very long day tomorrow.

All of you that are leaving soon, have me so jealous!!! I know my turn will come but I just want to be there NOW!!! Only 5 (make that 4!!) months to go, I can handle it, I think, I hope! We are also surprising our kids with this trip. Our last trip was in 2010 and they don't think we are going again until next year. Fingers crossed that we can keep the surprise going until the day we leave!!

Looking forward to our stay! Don't want to rush time since my DS is graduating grammar school- he's been there since he was 3 for PreK but I can't wait for Disney!!

Hey CarolinaBlue, where can I buy Cherry lemon Sundrop? I'm a fellow tarheel but I haven't seen it yet. Have a great trip!

If anyone needs to know anything or wants me to check out anything at POFQ while I'm there let me know. We don't use computers on vacations so I can post anything you need when I get back

I'm flying for the first time in 11 years tomorrow, keep me in your thoughts for a very uneventful flight coming and going !!

Will post a full hotel report when we get back!!
Emme, can you see if the playground is lit at night? Thanks and have a Magical vacation!!!

I would say get lots of sleep tonight but if you are anything like me it is hard to sleep the night before we leave - too excited!!

Hope you have a Magical Vacation!!!

If it makes you feel any better I have over a year to wait before I am back!

Full length mirrors?

Can anyone tell me if there are full length mirrors in the rooms?

Thanks!

Hi! I'm Melissa and my husband & I will be staying at French Side for my 24th birthday & our 6 year wedding anniversary. Between the military & then having a special needs child we never had a honeymoon so were calling this our Disneymoon! lol. We'll be there from 8/31-9/3. (8/31 being my birthday & 9/5 is our anniversary). This will just be a "weekend" trip but its going to be a blast. Really looking forward to staying here.

We're here! Super tired from the drive, but happy to be here. We are in building 3, close to the gift shop. The weather is nice and hot. We don't plan to go to the parks tonight, just hanging out here. Will try to post more later and maybe some pics. Oh, and I've seen one pair of lovebugs here so far.

It's a special drink that was invented in Gastonia, NC. It was originally a fountain drink using Sundrop, cherry syrup, maraschino(sp?) cherries, and a lemon slice. Later, they started bottling it like Sundrop. Not sure of any other places it's sold other than Gaston County.

Well I will be driving that way at the end of June. I will have to stop and get some.

Thanks for the Sundrop info. Skipping the parks tonight is probably a good idea since you had such a long drive. Get some rest tonight so you'll be energized for tomorrow. Hope you have a fantastic trip and can't wait to hear all about it!
