Our schedules look very similar!!! We will also be at DHS on Monday, Epcot on Tues and MK on Wednesday!!! :)

I'm so jealous you're staying at WL!! That's our "home" but this year we had to save some money and are planning to stay at the All Star Sports. This is so we can return to WL next fall after our cruise :)

Maybe our paths will cross while we're there. I'll be wearing my wdwmagic button on my camera bag!! :)

We would not have been able to stay at WL if we had of brought our boys but with just her, it was manageable.

That would be awesome, I'll look for you.
 
Headed to the WL December 14-19 for a series of firsts:
~first tme at WL
~first time to see Christmas decorations in person
~first girls only trip with my grown DDs

We ADRs at Chefs de France, Boma, Narcoosees & DTD Rainforest Cafe for dinners, Kona at my beloved Polynesian for a "must have" breakfast of Tonga Toast!

Sounds like a great plan. We stayed at WL back in 2010 and enjoyed it. We even spent some of our free day in 2011 hanging out at WL. And of course, BIG CONGRATS on your 25th anniversary! :) Can't wait to see your TR when you come back!

Well it's been a month since I first posted my PTR and a few things have changed. I got an ADR at Ohana's on the 24th @ 5:05 and am sooooooo excited. We still plan on going to DHS that day, leaving around 4 going to dinner and then back to DHS. For Tuesday, Sept. 25th I got an earlier ADR at Whispering Canyon Cafe for 6:50. Still trying to figure out how I can cram 4 parks in, in 4 days and have a little down time at the WL.

I will share the "Surprise" trip with my DD on her 10th Birthday on Aug. 27th and I will let you all know how things go. She is going to be so excited.

Well tomorrow is the big day. My DD 10th Birthday and the day we SURPRISE her with the trip. We had her party last night with friends and family and I can't wait until tomorrow. I have wrapped a Disney Authograph book and a note with WL picture and other disney pictures that says "pack your bags we're going to Disney in 4 weeks". I also have wrapped a Disney shirt and PJ's for her. She is going to be soooooooo excited. Stay tuned for more info after tomorrow nights surprise. :eek:

I do have to work tomorrow so it will be tomorrow night before we go out to dinner.

Happy Anniversary to you. We have two older DS (20 & 22) and they have been 3 times so they will not be joining us this time but I know that she will be so excited. I can't wait to get home from work and surprise her with the trip. Enjoy your stay!
