Ooooh, shall we run at the wall together with our luggage carts? (Every time I'm in the U.K. I always look around when we ride the train into London; I'll see that platform one of these days. )
I can picture both you and Janet doing this !!!

LOVE the Express Pass! And the boat to the hotel of course!!

We have had fabulous US trips..I can't help but miss WDW The Garden rooms at RPR can be guaranteed connecting...I am an enabler..sorry.

We had the best view at our Ohana's breakfast! Maybe we will meet up!!! I am also thinking the kids could have an evening at Camp Lil Rock so hubs and I can have some time alone DH is really counting on chillaxing...lots of pool time. I am really excited!!!! Trying to make sure we do things we've missed...water rides...restaurants. I'm always open to suggestions too!!! And Thank you for joining the fun!!!

I am joining in. I know next to nothing about US so, I am hoping to learn something while reading. Or I will learn that changing my plans is a normal thing. I seem to change my mind weekly.

When I first started planning, I had a hard time not changing my mind constantly. I am now on a program where they help me to stick to my plans and I get one day a week for changes. I wish they had support groups like that, but I imagine they would have a hard time sticking to a date and time.

It's perfect...although I am wanting to come in a night early and stay there...ugh...I am hopeless. But I need to be happy to have a Cinderella meal for Bree and visit GF with HRH (and DS4 qho loves Grand Foridan as he calls it)

BTW...we loved the character interaction at dinner...the step sisters were so good!

Hi Jen!! We loved Universal!! Specifically we went for Harry Potter and spent most of our time at IOA... when the force is too strong and you find yourself turning to the dark side you will love it!!
