Sad thing is that I only let the dog out in the back which is in the shade so I thought it was frigid until the afternoon. Too funny. I had a really laid back day and went to the movies later on. There were too many conflicting scheules so my family is going to do dinner on Sunday.

Saw Wreck-It Ralph which was really cute and as usual had a great life lesson spun in.

Also saw Life of Pi which was an amazing story and very well done.

Unfortunately my kids won't be able to say that I started laughing when you said you didn't want to ride IASW...my DH feels the same. He gives me such a hard time about that ride. Loved seeing the new Fantasyland shots!!! It looks awesome!!!
It was just fabulous. The only other time I've seen such low crowds was in late January. I'd probably choose September over January again because there were some days I wore my winter coat and definitely did not use the pools at all on that trip. Oh me oh my, I do not need to go on IASW again for a long long time.

Looking forward to more!

That's exactly what I'm thinking. The next time, if there is a next time and I'm sure there will be, needs to be a cruise. That way we can still have family time at meals but do our own thing the rest of the time.

Thank you You guys really flatter me. Can't wait to see your pictures, I'm sure they're fantastic as always!

It was so unexpected and neat. There must have been hardly anyone in line because the CM just said so nice and pleasantly that if anybody wanted to have a second ride they just had to stay in their elephant.

Totally agree, too short. I loved all the Goofini stuff in the queue.

We did that too, but the ones who had never cruised before, still hung around us most of the time b/c they had no idea what to do and did not want to miss anything.

Winter has arrived I think. When I got home it was 56 degrees inside, the heat had to go on.

This is funny, I would choose January over September ANY DAY!! We can't stand the humidty that you folks put up with over there and find it absolutely stifiling (sp?). Since it never really gets cold where we live and I'm not a big pool person, I'm OK with having to put on a jacket occasionally.

Silly thing is that my trips this next year are Jan-Feb and Sept-Oct!

I think our low in the house today was 66, so not yet, but it should drop a little this evening.

We love when our house is about this temperature! That's about what our outside temp is, well I guess it gets down to about 50 at night.....

The humidity is dreadful, no doubt about it. I guess I'm semi used to it, and on vacation I like hot rather than cold. I really don't like cold.

Oooohhh, what are your Sept-October plans? Doing the F & W?

66 is amazing... At night it drops to 62, but warms up during the day.

Outside today the high was 45 and the low tonight is 32....

Love our daytime temps, but it was 28 when I got up this morning. Even with the heat set at 64 it came on! BLECH!
