This was such a long trip with lots to recap! So many details.... but most of all, I'm so glad that you rediscovered the magic again. I know exactly what you mean with that too. I don't have any future trips to WDW on the calendar either, and I agree that it's nice to remember the last one so happily!

Well, you too have plenty of Disney to look forward too as well!

Thanks for all the work in putting this together!

Very nice recap of another amazing adventure! Looking forward to many more of these! It is because of these TRs from you and others here I have done other things on my trips to various ADRs, tours and other activities! I look forward next year to taking the DestiNations Tour in Epcot with your great review and coverage of it!

As I've noted so many other times, after you write your Final Thoughts, just how much I enjoy reading your TR's! You and Mark experience so many things that I just don't do while at WDW. I love your insight into the dining and tours that you tend to do! Even though it sounds like you won't be back to our beloved WDW for quite a while, I'll definitely enjoy catching up with your TR's in the Globetrotting Forum along with the Disney Cruise Forum. Thank you once again for taking the time to share your vacation memories with us Cheryl!

For those of you who enjoyed this trip report and wanted to read another Disney one... well I can't do Walt Disney World, but my pre-trip report for our forthcoming cruises (yes in the plural! ) on the Disney Magic is now underway in the Disney Cruise Line trip reports forum. Maybe see you over there!
