He had kept talking about how he wanted to meet Buzz but he seemed scared when it was our turn. I'm thinking it probably had to do with the way he felt.

We bid farewell to POR but we weren't too sad. We'd be back in a few months!!
I know what you mean but you can feel free to ask me almost anything!!I always wondered but you know what they say about curiosity so I was afraid to ask.
That is crazy!! I know it's a big place but we would have had to have been in close proximity to each other at some point!!Trip overlap again! We were in the World Feb 12-16, 2017 and were in the MK on the 14th and HS on the 15th as well!
In my family that award would actually go to my dad & brothers. I'm nothing compared to them!!I just relayed the snoring story to my kids (ages 22 and 18). The 22 year old pipes ups and says "great idea Mom, you get your own room from now on." Yup, I'm the snorer in the family.
I'm sure it was miserable so booking separate is the way to go. I would assume you'll be away for a week at least so imagine not sleeping for the whole week. It's a recipe for disaster. You really can't enjoy yourself unless you're well rested IMO.So sorry about the snoring!! That stinks that you guys have to book separate rooms, but it does sound like the right move. My mom snores really bad and when I slept in the room with her in Chicago a couple years ago I got no sleep whatsoever. It was miserable! We plan to go to Italy together for her 60th and I'm planning to book us separate rooms
Thank you very much. That's very kind. I can't believe how often she is on my mind--more often than not. 17--I'm sorry. That's just not fair. I feel bad b/c I'm 44 & the oldest. My youngest sibling is 30 & I feel bad for him b/c I had 14 more years with our mom than he did.Just getting caught up. I just wanted to say how very sorry I am to hear that you lost your mom. My dad passed away when I was 17. As many years as it has now been, it still stings when I think about it. It does get better with time but you never stop missing them. Sending much love, comfort and pixie dust to you and your family!
I was almost there the same time! The studio I teach at performed at Disney Springs on the 20th buuuuut my due date was the 26th so no traveling for me!TRIP #5
WHEN: June 19th-25th, 2017
WHERE: I think I'm going to just start skipping this part
WHO: H(my niece), R & myself
You may remember them from previous TR's
View attachment 374702
WHY: R is a principal. During the summer of 2016 at his schools festival there was a raffle for a 4 day park hopper pass to WDW. My nieces H & B were with me at the festival. I told them that if one of them won the tickets I would take them & pick up the rest of the tab. I made them promise there would be no ill feelings toward each other if one of them actually won(they are sisters). They both promised. Lo & behold H won!! I did feel kind of bad for B but I couldn't afford to take her also. Don't worry--B has been there since & I'm taking her next month!!
Also, this was R's first trip to Disney in 20 years!! The last & only time he went was in 1997. He really couldn't grasp why I would go to Disney so frequently. I needed to make a believer out of him on this trip!! It had been so long since he had been there that it was almost like going with a first-timer!! Also, he had never stayed on property so that would be a new experience for him also.
I'LL THROW THIS IN SINCE HE WON'T BE MAKING AN APPEARANCE ON THIS TRIP:

J at church the day before we left for the trip. Sharp dresser!!
MONDAY, JUNE 19TH 2017
We had the ridiculously early 5:30 flight out of Pittsburgh. I drove through a monsoon on the way to the airport--typical weather for around here. When we got to the airport I told R & H I would drop them off at curbside & I would go park the car. R insisted that they go with me since it was dark. I told him I would park near a shuttle stop & I would be fine. He wasn't having it & said they were coming with me. I told him it was ridiculous for all 3 of us to get soaked but whatever..... I wasn't winning the argument. But, I did have the last laugh when he stepped in a giant puddle that he didn't notice. He was very irritated b/c he was wearing brand new shoes. By the time we got on the shuttle he was really stewing. H & I just looked at each other & laughed. If he would have just listened to me in the first place......
So, what's worse than a crabby R combined with the ungodly 5:30 am flight? Oh, that would be the addition of the delay of the 5:30 flight b/c.......ready for this?? The pilot couldn't adjust his seat. Maintenance came out to fix it & was unsuccessful. They said under normal circumstances it wouldn't be a big deal but our particular pilot happened to be 6' 8" & absolutely needed the seat lowered. I don't know that I've every seen someone so tall!! Anyhow, since maintenance couldn't fix the seat they decided to put us on another airplane which meant we had to change gates. All in all I believe we were delayed about an hour. It really stinks getting up for such an early flight & then having it delayed. Another hour of sleep would have been nice.....
We finally arrived!! I was really excited for R since it had been so long since he had been here.

We headed straight to HS.

Talk about perfect timing--this started a few minutes after we got there. R is a big Star Wars fan so this was perfect!!

The photographer had us do this. I believe it is something Star Wars related.

Time for our first FP!!

H loves this ride. I prefer not to go on it but will if I'm with someone who wants to. I'm happy to report that R is someone who no longer wants to. He remembered really liking it back when he was 23 but he didn't feel the same about it at 43. After the first drop all he wanted was for the ride to stop. He was literally banging his feet off the floor asking when it was going to be over. Now, again I don't care for this ride & normally I am holding on for dear life but all I could do is laugh at R during it.

Welcome back to Disney R!!
Yeah--that would probably have been cutting it a little close!!I was almost there the same time! The studio I teach at performed at Disney Springs on the 20th buuuuut my due date was the 26th so no traveling for me!
Yes it would be!!This one that you are reporting on actually overlapped with some dates we were there. I'll have to look for us in the background of your pictures. That would be cool if we were in the background somewhere.
Wait?? You were there too?? Too bad we didn't meet!!I know I was there during that week.
