    Fun morning! You got a lot done before we met up! I don't remember what we did other than a few rides and a few drinks!

    This totally makes or breaks the ride depending on your skipper. Glad you had a great one!

    I've heard most people like Indiana Jones much better than Dinosaur. I wonder why that it? It seems to be a much better ride, even if the ride vehicle and everything is so similar.

    Wonderful updates :)

    I think WoC is up there as my favorite show. The music and storytelling are just so fabulous.

    The hotel breakfast looks surprisingly yummy.

    Bring on retirement! There’s really nothing like the parks at Christmas.

    I was so behind, but now caught up. I had a wild November and was not home half the month.
    I am loving all the DL pictures. It is reminding me how long it has been since I have been there and I really need to work on getting Claire and I there so I can show her where it all started.

    It definitely was! We still had a bit of trouble finding our way around, but we were so lucky with rides. Tom and I remember what we did ...... we have the photos :rotfl2: and not to get too far ahead of myself, but we enjoyed the parade and fireworks that night. AWESOME!!!

    Yes, a good skipper makes or breaks the ride. Especially if they fit in a few new jokes. ;) So so much fun.

    Same ride vehicle, but I think because Indiana Jones is not as dark as Dinosaur you are more prepared of where the vehicle is going to move, so it feels less jerky. At least that is my thought.

    It is AWESOME!!! We were so lucky to be able to see it there and then. Outstanding Disney story telling!

    It was! They had quite the array of things and it changed a bit daily. Nothing to write home about, but it filled you up and got you ready to tackle the parks. :hyper:

    It cannot come soon enough ............ Not sure how many years I can face the daily commute and unruly kiddos. We practically cannot wait to be able to get to WDW outside of the most popular travel times.

    :woohoo: for being all caught up! I so know how falling behind feels. ;) ....... and btw did you notice that I started a new TR for our 2017 trip? :rotfl2:

    We had such a great time there. You NEED to take Claire there, so can she see for herself where all the magic started. :thumbsup2

    Love reading your trip reports!

    It's chilly today here in Orlando, but I think those are the best park days!

    The long lost Rosie has popped up !! Happy 2018 Karen & Tom, I have been very busy with work and a great grandson living her keeps things hopping !! Braydn is adorable and at 14mthsisbecoming a little devil!! But Oh so cute !! I was in Disney in December with People and Places , saw many of the storytellers and thoroughly enjoyed Pandora in AK. We could only get GP for the Boat ride but that was wonderful. We saw lots of characters and the individuals had a ball. This year I may not make it to Disney unless I go with someone else as a partner escort as Carol had rejoined me at Opportunities and does not have much time off and we were committed to Universal for our Mikes sake . His Mom wants him with us as he seems to get himself in trouble with others , I willgo back and check out your latest TR and hopeful;ly will not be absent so long !!!

    I am slowly getting caught up, but had to comment on CHH, in December , with our group of 10 a very nice CM opened up a served area and had staff carry all our food to us !! This was over and above . CHH is always a favorite as we love the food and can usually find a table downstairs.
