I was wondering if anyone's kids did the sorcerer's magic card thing at MK? My DS12, had a blast doing that. We ended up doing two entire days + MVMCP at MK, because he was having so much fun solving the cases and collecting additional cards.

I guess all the big chatters are at WDW without us, that's why it's so quite.

I can't believe how much I am missing the world already, it really was a great trip and I have to say thank you, to you all, on this board! I would have never done the photo pass without your suggestion or MVMCP and both were fantastic ideas!
I think we will have to make the time to see it, Ive heard such great reviews. Guess it doesnt really matter who is the narrator.

One more sleep one more sleep

I seriously dont know what to pack, the highs are going to be in the 70-80s but the lows down to the 40s. Crazy Florida winter weather. LOL

Mostly packing jeans and light ls shirts, but might have to add some polos and shorts just in case its too hot. Layers, layers layers

While the narrator can make it better or worse, it's the choir that really steals the show, IMHO. When I saw them with Whoopi on 11/30 they were incredible. She did make it better with her readings, and a couple ad-libs, as well as dancing to the songs , but I still would have really enjoyed it if the person reading wasn't a celebrity.

We are driving to Orlando as I type this (spent a few days in South Florida). Counting down the hours for my first ever DW trip. Headed to MK in the morning. Soooooo very excited!

You might have noticed that my boyfriend glitters. It's just something that he does in the sun. Don't worry about it.

Hey gang,

Abby and I are home after an amazing eight days. I started typing up a trip report while in the airport, but only got two days done. :/.

I was reading posts while with the mouse during the trip, and I hope everyone is feeling better!

Hi Everyone! We also got in late due to our flight being delayed but luckily it was only by
1 hour. We left NY at 7:30pm and landed before 10. Disney's Magical Express stopped at two hotels before getting us to the Polynesian. We checked in around midnight and much to our delight got a room on the 3rd floor of Fiji facing the beach towards the Grand Floridian. Also I splurged and ordered a Christmas Tree for the room since we will be here until the 30th. It was the smaller of the two. I called the front desk today and asked if it could be put in our room so when we walked the kids would be surprised. It is really beautifully decorated. It is late now and I am exhausted. Getting up early to go to Hollywood Studios. Wishing everyone traveling a very safe journey!

Safe travels to everyone! we are in the car on our way to WDW. Just passed Louisville, kids are watching Toy Story 3. They were surprised but kinda in shock so reaction was low key...had to show them the packed car for it to sink in. And my DS9 was a bit disappointed at first that he wouldn't he home over vacation to play Minecraft. He is over that now! Have a great time for everyone already there
