Wow you are popular, already on page 10! Thanks for inviting me over! I'm caught up right now. Cannot wait to read all about this trip. I am jealous of all the deluxe resorts you get to stay at and such long trips too. Must be amazing to escape from the real world for so long!!

Great update Brenda, love the curb-side photo of you with the luggage. So sad about the Mickey one, it really shouldn't be falling apart after only 3 trips!

Of course you chose the coffee cake, that goes without saying. It's the start of your vacation, after all.

Bummer about being surrounded by hyper, LOUD kids on the way. Thankfully it was for the short portion of your trip.

Walter Disneyland World, I'm so calling it that from now on.



Aww too bad about the Mickey bag! We have a Mickey duffel that kinda fell apart after one use. I guess the Disney luggage isn't made to stand up to the incredibly gentle baggage handlers these days.

Mmmmm coffee cake looks gooooood!

Huge SWA fan here! I have had enough points for free flights on my last trip and my upcoming trip! I also love that bags fly free... If its free its for me! Obviously bags flying free benefits you girls too!!

I had a suitcase casualty on my last trip... Hated throwing it out but a broken handle doesn't do anything but make you look foolish trying to wheel it in the airport! I bought a new one over the summer and actually just bought yarn THIS morning to make a bright pompom! Can't have DH grabbing the wrong bag!

Aww so sad on the Disney bag biting the dust! I remember your having to buy it last summer!

I love Southwest and fly them often. It's also the Credit Card I use to get the points. Both Hunter and I are flying most of our October and December trip on the Rapid Rewards points I have earned. Of course they are now gone so no more trips lol. (Not happening as I fly to see hubby on SWA all the time)

Can't wait to read more of course!

I'm finally here! I'm so excited to hear about all the fun you & Em had in the world! Also, I think I need your help with booking because you score some pretty awesome deals.

I love your new hair cuts! Very very cute! I still love that bag. it's such a great color. I'm such a sucker for pink. My 12 year old self would be horrified.

I can't wait to hear what you guys thought of the magic bands! I used them over this weekend during my short solo visit & was very impressed. I thought I'd hate them. I also heard that they get you to spend more money, which I laughed at...and then was totally guilty of.

Yay for southwest!! I love the black Mickey bag. Starbucks & I became major bffs over this trip too. I just cannot resist their pumpkin bread!

Ahhh Brenda! I'm just so excited to hear about everything! Rich says hi, btw.

In my defense, we were planning on a 2 week trip and we are GIRLS. I can guarantee that no one is going to be coming to me for packing advice. (Paula remember when you made that mistake?)


5. Camera stuff: My bridge camera recently threw itself a retirement party since it quit working! Soooo… I can’t go to WDW without a camera otherwise this would be a very short and boring TR. I purchased a Sony NEX5R but hated it so I returned it and got a Nikon Coolpix P7700. It has all the point and shoot capabilities that I value in a camera for an untrained photographer!!! Ha ha! Please accept my apologies in advance since I was getting used to some of the settings on my new camera so some photos that I will share are not the best and I refuse to take the time to edit them!

Brenda, I always overpack! Jason asked me to put his clothes into my luggage this past trip and I told him to go find his own bag. Haha! I have always overpacked due to my mom telling me that you can never be too unprepared for whatever might happen. She did the same thing on our trip.

As for the Camera too bad for your other camera dying but good thing you found one you like. I want a new waterproof camera but until mine dies I will continue to use it.

I thought I posted before… but I love your outgoing message at work.

So sad that your luggage didn't make it back in a useable condition!

I haven't flown Southwest, but I wish Airtran would adopt their "bags fly free" policy!!!!

I love your voice mail message. Sounds like something I would say if I was working outside of the house. I should change up my cell phone message and see what people would do. I would definitely have gotten the coffee cake it just looked more pleasing to me. And now that it's fall time means I get my Pumpkin Spice Latte's.

If you book the Airtran flight via the Southwest website, you get free bags.

Awww, that stinks about your suitcase, but I guess it was expected with so much resort hopping. Still, it looks really cool! I wish I had a Mickey suitcase. I'll just settle for the old Magical Express luggage tag that's still on it from my last trip to Disney.

LOL @ the sequin dress pat down. Security these days. And who knows? Probably was trying to find a price tag somewhere. I mean, what does airport security have better do?

to your choice to fly SWA and in Starbucks Pastry! Southwest is by far the best airline. May not have the TVs like with JetBlue, but they are much more efficient. MUCH more. They counteract the crazy distractions and bothers by a lot, I'm sure.

Can't wait to read more!
