I'm here! Joining in of course! I'd much rather be reading TR's anyways compared to doing housework or Accounting homework. But can't wait to read more about your trip with you and Em! Maybe one day I will be able to get out to southern CA to go to DL but that's after I defriend my uncle so he won't know that we're in CA. Hahaha!!! Long story is my aunt drives me nuts and we all dread when she comes to NC to visit because it's a bad week for us all! Yeah we're so nice huh? But seriously can't wait to read more!

Totally repetitive, but here it goes...

Love your pink bag!
Love your intro!
Love your other reports!
Totally excited to read this report!
THANK YOU to your son for his service to our country!


That should about cover it. Now just waiting for the show!

Brenda!!

So glad you were able to do a TR for this!! After seeing your post on FB about touring Cindy's suite, I thought for sure you'd be doing a report on it. I was right!! Lucky us!! I always love reading your reports, I just don't always keep up with them after each post is posted, so please forgive me. But I do read, promise!!

You always have the cutest outfits!! I love the way you dress, such a southern Cali., girl.

So sorry to hear about your ankle, I hope it's not too serious. Did you actually break it?!?

Hi there Trinity and Bre's mom!! Thank you so much for joining. I'm ever appreciative of even the quiet types who simply read along - I appreciate your participation. But thank you for letting me know you are here. We'll count down to your December trip together since I'll be returning there in early December as well.

It looks like from your signature that you've been during the holiday time before! Please tell me that it is amazing!

thanks again for reading and joining!

Just finsihed reading intros (great job, so excited to hear more) and you and Emmy look just as beautiful as always! Prayers and thanks to your son who is serving our country and for all of your wonderful children, they are lucky to have such an amazing Mom Brenda!

I am so excited for this report! I would LOVE to stay at MK for the ease of transportation with a W/C...which leads me to say, you COULD do a W/C trip and see how the other half lives at Disney...just saying! And what happened to your ankle, I read the PTR when you wrote about it last week, but never did see exactly what happened or the details of how long you will be out of commission I am SO SORRY! But you COULD do Disney (I am such an enabler)!
Judy!! I am so honored that you are here you dear sweet woman.

Thank you for your kind words. Coincidently, I just heard from my son today that he is on his way home!!!! I'm overjoyed!

You are so correct. I could do a trip in a wheelchair! You want the truth huh? Gravity works. I stepped off my stairs - apparently there were more steps left and I didn't notice because I was distracted! I'm actually walking now so I've progressed from crutches and crawling.

Hi Paula!! Thank you so much for joining. (You're PM was hilarious... I haven't pulled the trigger on the DR yet so I can back out. Oh the commitment!)

Believe me, if I went during F&W I would sync up our dates so I could see you and Hunter.

Hi Jacquie! I've seen your epic reports around here but have not had the nerve to jump in and participate. (Kinda like asking to sit at the popular kid's table at lunch! You being the popular kid!) So I'm now gathering my nerve to join your PTR. August dates are typically when we go as well so our paths may cross next year! (Whoa, I just peeked and THREE WEEKS including an Eastern Caribbean cruise - get outta here! That's faint worthy! )

With that said... THANK YOU so much for joining - I'm so very glad that you are here!!

Sounds fantastic so far can't wait to hear all about yours and Ems trip. I am so vicariously living through you and these girls trips. My dd is 11 and we are doing this in a couple of years.
Nice resorts..so exciting
You guys look fabulous as usual
Oh no about ankle
Hi Patti! Awwww that will be a super exciting trip with your DD!!

Ankle is much better .... I may even be dancing soon. Well, I don't think anyone labels it dancing but you know.

Hope I'm replying correctly! Lol spreadsheets are my friend and for me half (well maybe not half) of the joy of going to WDW is all the planning and details leading up to actually going.

Worthwhile? Are you kidding? I gobble up your TR like they were special pancakes from Kona (which I've yet to have)! You have a wonderful ability to write in a way that makes me feel like I'm right there w/ you guys! Thanks for sharing!!

Hope your ankle is better soon and ready to take on the world soon!
Hi there distripplanner! I can completely relate to your user name! And YES, planning and layering in the details is half the joy.

Thanks for joining and enjoying my prior TRs.

HI!! I'm joining in!! I saw the heads up on FB!! I was a lurker for bits and pieces if your last TR, which I need to go back and read more of!! I read your intro and this sounds like it's going to be a fun adventure to read about!!

I mostly go to WDW but was lucky enough to get out to your neck of the woods or shall I say the So Cal area late July-early Aug. We loved it and hope to get back out there someday!!! We did DL and LA/Hollywood!!!We saw lots of things, but there are so many more places to go and things to see out there. We were lucky that the weather was perfect while we were there. It was even cool in the evenings, something that doesn't happen much around here this time of the year!!

Hi there! Thank you so very much for joining in - welcome!! Welcome to the DisBoards! Isn't this place great? It's great to "meet" you as well Raina!

Bless you for your kind remark. I'll move you to the front row of the class where the teacher's pet sits!

We are also resort hoppers. My DS loves AKL and we both love YC. Recently we've been staying at CR during our MK days and it makes it so convenient, then we just move over to the next resort for that area.

You have another fan here of the pink bag! Can't wait to hear about the trip.

I'm still confused about the Mickey waffles from your Feb/Mar trip. Your report is the only one I've ever seen from Akershaus that shows having them. I hope it's that way when we go next summer.
Hi YCFan! Welcome and thank you for joining!

That's awesome that you have your DS as a travel companion. It certainly builds some wonderful memories.

I'm with you about YC but I also love AKL - thus the split stays. Our park strategy is similar - knock out the dining and things we want to do strategic to the resort we stay. Great minds think alike!

Ha thanks! I've had a few PMs about the bag. And I wasn't going to bring it because it is not a good park bag but I was too lazy at the last minute to change bags so it came with me.

We've had waffles at Akershus every trip since 2010 when Em's eagle eye spotted someone having waffles brought to their table. Apparently you have to ask for them so don't be shy about that.

Thanks again for joining!!

Hi Wendy! Welcome and thank you for joining! Oh, you must be a BLT lover from your signature. At least it looks like your home resort. I LOVE the villas there.

I can't wait to share with you the Dream Suite story!

I think it's fantastic you and your daughter are getting to spend this time together..and in Disney!! My mom is the one that brought Disney into my life at a very young age (my first trip was at 2.5) and it's something we still share today (along with my younger sister)!

We are "passing the love-of-Disney torch," so to speak, in just nine days when we take my daughter for her first trip (she'll be 14 months)! My DH and Dad will be there, too, but while they do like Disney, they are not as obsessed as we are!

Anyway, looking forward to reading along!! :-)
Hi TM! Thank you for joining! How exciting to see that your little DD will have her first trip to WDW next week. I see you have a PTR. I'll have to drop by. I wish you all the joy and excitement of that trip with your family!

My mom and I share a special Disney bond like you and Em... We haven't done a girls only trip, but I think we need too!
Hi Amy! I'm glad that my eating and gaining 8.5 lbs was entertainment for some people!! Are you participating in the live dining thread for your upcoming trip? I would be glad to repay you!!

That's awesome about you and your mom's bond. I know that years from now I will be confident that even though trips themselves do not build a bond between a mother and children that at least they were the memories for which some of our bond is built.

I am honored that you even read along - thank you!

ha ha ... your comment about my outfits had me giggling because I buy the cheapest stuff at Forever21 or Ross and if not those places then Disneyland's Adventureland Outpost has some cool Roxy, O'Neil, and other "surf" brands. Thanks for the endorsement!!

My ankle is actually better since I'm walking on it... the klutz in me is paying the price!

Hi there!!! Thank you for coming by and joining! So you are part of the FB group.... I'll have to uncover your identity. Thanks for reading along!!!

Sounds like you left before it really heated up here. Which was about the time that I headed to FL. It was rather cool until early August around here. I'm glad you got to see some of So. CA (smog and all!) Did you enjoy DL? I'm sure you have some comparisons to make between the parks. Let me know if you did a TR as I'd love to read along.
