    Although we had decided that we would forgo our August "Girls Trip" this year due to scheduling conflicts and upcoming financial commitments, we just couldn't seem to "let it go." So, after looking at schedules and picking up some extra hours of work during the summer, Baleigh, her friend Kaela, and I will be headed to Disney World in just under a month! I LOVE these trips, and I'm so glad we've been given the opportunity to go again!

    As a special treat for the girls, I have booked a Little Mermaid room at AoA for our stay - they are HUGE HUGE fans, so they are a hot mess of excitement :) And although I've read it's quite a hike from the buses/main building, we're only there for 4nights/5days, so I feel like we'll manage fine.

    It'll be a pretty easy going trip, however we have booked 3 meals per the girls request:
    Akershus - They had a BLAST here at breakfast last year chatting up the princesses
    1900 Park Fare - They cannot WAIT to meet the step-sisters
    and..............
    BE OUR GUEST!!!!! FOR DINNER!!!!!!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

    We are also going to try and do some of the Frozen Summer activities - the sing-along and ice skating are the two they're most excited about, and depending on how things go this week, I may try to book the VIP package for them.

    YAY!

    I've been in the Little Mermaid suite at AoA. It was the last place Herself's Sister and family stayed. :sigh:

    They are quite nice, and you will have a lovely time. I didn't find them to be too terribly far from the main building or bus stop. :unsure: It's a walk, but not a hike. :D

    I'm so pleased for you that you are getting to go. You need some purely fun time. You have been through a lot in the past many months. :hug2:

    Oh hon :hug2: :hug2:

    To be perfectly honest, I think the Little Mermaid rooms could be in Georgia and neither of these girls would utter a peep - they are just that excited. I, too, am pleased we are going - the time is passing all too quickly and before I know it Baleigh will be off to college, making these little trips even harder to schedule. So I shall enjoy them while I can, eh!?

    That was the first question the girls asked :hug2: We will miss seeing you guys, but I'll bore you senseless with loads of photos :D

    Guess what came yesterday....

    Yes, we all decided on red - the girls because of The Little Mermaid's red hair (also, note the names on their MagicBands), and me because I'm going to paint white polka dots all over mine a la Minnie Mouse :)

    It won't be long now!

    Nice! (Do they have purple? :D Can you choose your color, or do you get what they give)?

    You choose your color and they do not have purple (which absolutely makes no sense)
