That's too funny! I grew up in Trolley Crossing, off of Brown Ave closer to Litchfield! Small, small world (no pun intended)!

Trolley Crossing is still our trick or treat spot. Lol.Alomst all of my friends were on Brown Ave, so I spent most of my time down there. Well it's always good to find so many similarities with someone. It's quite possible we'll run into eachother on vacation at some point.

Trolley Crossing is AMAZING for trick or treating....

So many houses, so little time.

So SOON!!


You must be so pumped, so close yet so far!!


I've been debating whether or not I should put some of my $$ onto disney gift cards. Planning on doing a drink/snack around the world, and thought it might be a good idea for this. I'm assuming all those places accept the card yes?

In my experience, MOST of the carts do take cards. Some of the smaller ones don't though. We have $1250 in gift cards, split $625 for each DH and I and we will have a good amount of cash too, just in case we want something we can't use the card for.

Our goal is to not touch our debit card while we are there.

And we will be there in......



3 more days!!!!!

I SO want to see NKOTB again...Joey was my favorite. :-) saw them at Six Flags back in 6th grade...

Honestly, we usually wake up around 9 or 9:30 am and don't get to the parks until about 10-10:30am. Yeah, I know some people at the thought of that, but, it's vacation!!!! We relax, even at Disney!
Yeah, Fastpasses might be gone, blah, blah, blah...but we are not adverse to waiting in line if need be...it doesn't bother us.

Maybe we are just weird though, we don't follow touring plans or crowd calendars. We also don't avoid EMH's (we gravitate towards them...late ones of course) and we like the buses!

We have a very different touring style than a lot of other Dis'ers I think?? Or are there more out there like us???
My kids LOVE the buses. DH and I on the other hand prefer the monorail..(or boat). :-) so much easier with the kids and stroller and all...

I am very indecisive!!!

Thanks for reading along!!!

You made me realize that maybe I never updated my PTR with my final ADR's. We have lined up:

Biergarten lunch
Wishes Dessert Party
Via Napoli lunch
Tusker House breakfast (yes, for Daisy!)
Yachtsman Steakhouse dinner
50's Prime Time lunch
Be Our Guest dinner

We never did the stroller all over the place thing, even when the kids were little (on their first trip they were literally just turned 3 (the day before our arrival) and 5). We just rented the strollers in the park and walked onto the buses....so much easier!!! For us, anyway, but again, we are weird I guess...

Well....I figured I'd check in one more time on this here PTR!

24 hours from now, we will be waiting to board our plane to Orlando!!!

This was my 1st PTR and I truly appreciate everyone who has read along and commented!

Hopefully, we get out of Boston tomorrow without incident and arrive in Orlando quickly and safely!

Thanks again everyone!!!!
