[QUOTE=officegirlblues;1117210]Awww, you guys are awesome! Thanks for making me feel so welcome! :wub: Mallory gets to take her person of choice each time we go so she’ll get to do that this time, too. I did think about letting Brody take someone. I’m glad you guys reminded me about that! I’ve kind of thought he’d be more apt to put his brave face on if he had a buddy with him. I’ve been showing him the trip reports with all the awesome pictures on top of the planning DVDs. Can’t be too sneaky, right?! He is really excited about going and keeps asking me when it will be so I think if I can get everything planned out to please BOTH of them I’ll be home free! Letting them both help is an awesome idea! I’m thinking, too, that adding some special meals and staying somewhere different from our norm would shake it up a bit. Great suggestion! We always stay at one of the All Star value resorts. Maybe bumping it up to another resort would add an element of excitement for Mallory. I really want to stay at Art of Animation but after seeing LMM’s Beach Club trip report I definitely want to try that one out, too! And, of course, Animal Kingdom Lodge would be an awesome location, too! Soo many choices! Maybe I will let them decide!
I’m thinking now that it might be better to separate the trips but still do both. I grew up at WDW so I don’t think there was a time of the year I didn’t get to go. Let’s see… the kids (mostly Mallory!) have been to WDW in October, May, June, July, December and January. October was our absolute favorite trip. The weather, the crowds… it was all glorious! I have a feeling Spring would be just as glorious. I just have to figure out when. I do NOT want to stand in two hour lines and be run over by people every time I turn around. I love the Mouse’s house but I’d rather love it with less people! I also have to plan around their school holidays, which stinks. When they were younger their teachers were more accepting of them missing a few days here and there. Now? Not so much…
I have to go back now and read thru all the replies so I can write all of your awesome ideas down in my notes!
I’ve also got to figure out how to pull quotes out of your replies so I can answer specific things from each of you. I promise I’m not trying to be rude by not responding to each of you individually. It’s just been a LONG time since I’ve been active in a forum! I have to get my wheels back under me. [/QUOTE]
Hope…at the bottom of this window…bottom right corner is a box that says quote. Click on that and it pulls up a window with the quote of the person you wish to reply…try it on me if you like…:happy:
