I'm not sure how I missed your link to the new PTR but i'm here and caught up!

I've been hearing about how difficult it is to find an Elsa dress anywhere! And I guess even on ebay, people are selling those dresses for astronomical amounts. The one you purchased on etsy is absolutely adorable! She'll look amazing in it

Oh, and I think you should totally name the baby TBD.
That's great that you got a bounce back trip! Yeah, naming the kid TBD would like that story of the person who damed their daughter Female (pronounced Fee-mah-lay)

Glad you made it! Haven't missed too much yet.

Yeah, I am hearing just ridiculous stories and there are some amazing ones available of Esty going for like $2,000. Happy with the one we got, we also got a super cute Olaf shirt for Peter for the Frozen party as well

Pre Trip Report: Part 4 - Ticket and MB update ... and baby update as well


Pre Trip Report: Part 4 - Ticket and MB update ... and baby update as well


Couple of things to update today

First, I did get the tickets for Judi and Olivia through the Official Ticket Center as they were delaying the price increases. They also had an offer going where you got a free 5th day on a 4 day ticket. So I wound up getting 5-day tickets for them for $50 total LESS than what 4 day tickets would be if I got them right from Disney

They, along with my AP, have been attached to our reservation and our MB have been picked out (Olivia of course had to have pink).

Then I noticed that there were 2 MB orders in my account - apparently they are sending out MB to everyone with an annual pass, so I will have 2. I had them ship the AP one now so that I can start playing around with pretend booking FP+ to see how things work out.

That's it today as far as the trip goes .....

*********************

baby update:

This morning we had Judi's 20 week check-up during which we were able to find out that we are having another girl!

While we were perfectly happy with either option, this is a good result because of two reasons:
1) Olivia really, REALLY, wanted a sister so we did not relish the thought of having to tell her it was another boy
2) We had a girl's name picked out but couldn't decide on a boys ... so now we don't need to worry about it!

Oh, and here is the first released picture of her - already weighing a healthy 13oz:



(hope that didn't cross some TMI line)

Congratulations!!!! I love it when I can tell that the sonogram picture is of a baby. A coworker handed me hers once and I flipped it every which way and couldn't for the life of me figure out where the baby was.

Congrats on the new baby girl! Glad to hear all is well! Are you sharing the name or will she be known as "TBD" for the time being?

Smart move getting those tickets before the price increase.

I know! One of the reasons I found writing the TR from our last trip so positive was it kept that trip alive rather than needing to plan the next one ... once I finished the TR though, all bets were off!

Thank you! Yeah, we were happy that we got a number of good sonogram pictures and just so need to see them as they point out the arms and little feet and stuff ... less so when they pointed out my wife's bladder

Thank you! You'll have to read the next post to see the name of the new baby *cheap plug*

Yeah, I was pretty happy with how things worked out with the tickets, and also glad to have that decision made

I know, at least these dresses looked pretty darn impressive and in some ways easier to see the cost for those vs the people that want like $300 for the regular Disney costumes that retail for like $40.

Pre Trip Report: Part 5 - Re-booking our resort ... and baby name!


Pre Trip Report: Part 5 - Re-booking our resort ... and baby name!


Welp, a couple more smallish things, but did want to keep things moving along.

Some summer discounts came out and Disney Visa holders got early access, so with that, for now we have re-booked into the Royal Room at PO Riverside. So no change yet, just that now the cost for our stay is ~$200 cheaper, so I will take that.

Contemplating moving to the Contemporary (would do Poly but just scared of the construction) but still exploring pricing options.

The other news is that I have updated MDE with the new baby's name, so without further ado .....



So far everyone we have mentioned the name to is happy with it and we don't know many other "Emma" babies yet (we thought we were being kind of original with "Olivia" but there were like 4 in her pre-school class and one of her good friends is also named Olivia ... they refer to each other as the "Other Olivia")

We have Olivia's friend Tara's Frozen themed birthday party on Saturday so i will probably do an update from that - at least with Olivia and Peter in their Frozen outfits.

TTFN
