It is encouraging that at least some of you have had luck. I am really hopeful, because it seems silly that the boys would have to leave the room to see Memaw, and that is just a lot of door slamming for 6 days, because boys slam doors...... :)

It might also depend on the resort (some might have more rooms with connecting doors) because we most often stay at AKL and although we’ve had rooms next to each other (or across the hall), we’ve never had rooms with a connecting door. Our last stay was at the Poly and we did have one but on that stay we hadn’t even bothered to ask for one because my DD was old enough to be in the room by herself if I went out for a bit.

Congratulations and its an awesome way to celebrate! Speaking as an adoptee, I approve of this celebration plan! ;P Sad that Disney doesn't make I'm Celebrating adoption specific buttons at Guest Services, but I suspect then just writing that on the Celebrating Buttons will garner some serious attention.
Is it getting dusty in here...?

Thanks so much!!!!! We are so excited. It has been such a long, long road. I know it is technically just a piece of paper, because they have been mine since the moment they walked through my front door, but I will be soooo glad for that paper!

We did have an amazing CM last summer overhear us talking about it, and she insisted we get celebration buttons and write adoption in. I explained that we still had at least a year left, and she said it didn't matter, who counts days when you are celebrating something like that. It did get us some extra magic, for sure. I just felt terrible wearing them knowing we weren't done. But my mom said that if a CM told us to get them and wear them, and actually walked us over to get them, it must be law that we wear them! :)

I meant to post yesterday, but forgot! 13 days!!!!!

In typical me fashion, I played around with some reservations. Not too bad, but decided BOG for dinner wasn’t something we wanted to do. So traded it for FOF parade VIP lunch at Tony’s town square, and dinner at LTT.

Nervous about lunch, as I have seen not great reviews, but we still haven’t seen the parade, so it works out I hope.

Packing has started. Given that we leave for Memaw’s house in 6 days, it’s late for me. We are also taking the dogs to my mom’s, so there is another layer of built in stress. Two dobermans+two boys= a SUV that smells like feets and farts for 17 hours. Long drive but worth it in the end.

If you will be in the parks these days, keep an eye out for the three ladies looking crazy, chasing around two obnoxious, loud, adorable boys! ;)

It isn’t that bad, but dudes have some serious ADHD, and really struggle being contained in lines. The DAS helps a ton, but there are still some issues. And honestly, they are incredibly well-behaved, probably moreso than their Momma!
