When??? I'm trying to talk DH into letting me do a girls only weekend w/my mom (he says if I go to the world, I have to take him w/me:rolleyes2 ).

Oh, and I must confess, I read that post on Saturday and it didn't really hit me what it was about until I read the other related post from today and THEN RE-READ Buffy's post! DUH!!!!:rolleyes1

I am going to be there already!!

Yes, my DH said we could go to WDW the week before school starts and school will start the 25th that year.

I'm pretty sure I'll get the raised eyebrow if I ask to spend boocoo bucks to scrap while at Disney, but I'm sure he will be okay if I leave to go meet you all at one of the parks or the hotel to eat with you.

That's what I thought you were talking about. Sounds like a great time! Don't know how much scrapping I'd get done...I'd want to be in the parks riding rides and taking pictures!:rotfl: Can't you get convention tickets for this for 4pm and later? I could scrap during the day and hit the parks in the evening...;) I'll have to work on DH. IIRC, we've talked about this sort of thing before and he was okay with it.:rolleyes:

HEHE That is what her card said. I was trying to be discreet. LOL

Yep, I got that after I figured out what you were saying in your post!:rolleyes1 My brain has been in major ditz mode since we've returned from vacation.:sad2:

If I wasn't already going to be there for five days, I'd swing over and pick her up. Although, all those hours in the back of a minivan with my two boys may have her wishing for sports & school. :rotfl:

That's what I'm thinking!!! DH, grandpa (my dad), and grandma (mom- if she doesn't go) can hold down the fort while I'm away. As long as I have a schedule and possible car pool arrangements made ahead of time (football would be my only conflict at this point), they will be fine!;)

just break away for one day, you can pay for a single day at the crop. And we should definitely get together for lunch or dinner. Hmmm where to go????? Whispering Canyon could be fun. UM yes, table for 50 please.....

yeah the tickets are either after 2 or after 4, which works out. Scrap while it's hot out and then hit the parks.
I think I'm bringing mom this time or just me. DH can keep the kids. I need to see if Lisa is going to drive or fly. We can go together.

Sometime in August I'm going to start an interest thread so we can get an idea of who will share rooms, who is going with family and spouses etc.
I want to make t-shirts and maybe some Scubbie shirts or scrapper widow shirts for the guys.

this year it's in Sept and my kids are already in school and DH can't handle that routine! At least during vacation they don't have to go anywhere, I'll just stock the pantry and buy some new movies and they will be fine.

You have to go Nancy, it would be like losing my right arm if you weren't there.

See, there ya go! (I figured you weren't too far from it) I'll pick you up and drop you off- one less thing your DH has to worry about!;)

I'm going to have a serious talk with DH tonight about this when he gets home.:thumbsup2

that time of year there is usually decent resident discounts at the values too... anyone know where this would be held? OH and my AP will still be valid

BernardandMissBianca
07-17-2007, 12:56 PM
and don't forget that there are several different packages, like nancy could go from Friday night to Sunday. Someone else local could do Sat/Sun I will probably do Thursday to Sunday this time.

And the more people you room with the cheaper the cost.

I'll talk to DH.. I definitely will have to make sure kaddjr goes.. I'm not a solo flyer by any means.. I'll need someone to talk to... going up is my biggest fear.. landing I'm okay with... if it's 2008.. I can handle that... now will my kids?

Whispering Canyon would be perfect. We are planning on Wilderness Lodge again, so I'll be right there if, for some reason, my boys just had to see that my imaginary friends were real people.

I figure that would be a great place for 30-50 women to hang out and eat.
Should I go through grand gatherings to book any dining reservations?

I think the gg people only work with you if you have room reservations for eight or more people. Which if enough of you are staying on sight, it should be doable.

Hey, I just may pull this one off!!!:banana: Started talking to DH, he gave me his look (we don't have an icon for that!)...the more info I gave him, the more he warmed up to the idea. He was thinking I was talking about THIS fall...so, he liked the idea of having more time to plan this, which is good! So we are looking at 3 options right now and he told me to price out each option. AND since the kiddos might be a bit miffed at me leaving them at home (they LOVE Disney), DH started talking about a possible Christmas 08 trip, instead of waiting until July 09.:banana:

DH does think it may be a good thing for me to get away with my DIS friends. When he asked me how I was getting to the airport, I said, "I'll drive, of course. I'll pick Nancy up, I'll park the van, and we'll get on the plane. When we get back, I'll drop her at her house, then come home. It's no big deal!;) ":rotfl:

So, start working on your kiddos and DH Nancy! Hope you don't mind flying SW airlines?:)

SW.. .SW.. Did you say SW.. SW is my friend..they have great great great rates!!!

Ok, I need pricing on this.. what does the scrap retreat thingy cost? I need figures.. I'm blonde..couldn't find them on the quick glance..but of course that was because KIDS were YELLING again! I'll start working on DH tonight! He'll given in.. He always does.. He loves me!

07-17-2007, 08:14 PM
here are the packages for this year. I'm not sure if they will be the exact same as this year but they should be close. The more people you share a room with the cheaper it is for all of you.

Not fair!!!! I am so desperately in need of a Disney fix. Right now I'd be happy planning for any trip, no matter how far out. I'll take a three year planning time if I have to. Unfortunately, no trips in the near future for me. DH has to finish school and get a "real job" so we can go back to having vacations. You ladies are going to make me so completely jealous.

07-18-2007, 06:51 AM
Patchchild- I feel your pain! DH was in school (undergrad and grad) for the first 8 years of our marriage. We went on our first official vacation last August!

I asked DH last night if I could go next September and he said "why don't we all go?" :banana: AWM we may be at Wilderness Lodge too- we stayed there last August and fell in love! :love:

Pricing is gonna depend on how long you want to be down there. Do you have an idea on what day you will want to leave and come home? Then, will you want to share a room with 1, 2, or 3 people? Once you make a decision on those things, then you can move onto pricing which options you want.

DH just called and gave me the green light to go. We had toyed w/the idea of him taking a couple of days off work to tag along and he had mentioned taking the kids also ("But what would I do all day while you scrap?" Me-"You COULD come scrap w/me!" Him-":eek: :headache: Uh, I don't think that would work for me!" Me-"Okay, do anything you want within reason."). After sleeping on it, he doesn't want to yank the kids out of school for a day or two that early in the year and has decided that he and the kids will just stay home. He just requests that I keep the costs reasonable, be home by sometime the following Monday, and I bring back a couple of good souvies for he and the kids.:thumbsup2

So Nancy, I'm pretty flexible at this point. LMK what you want to do (no pressure- we've got plenty of time!):)

PrincessNancy96
07-18-2007, 08:16 AM
I will look into everything.. DH said it would be okay... provided I leave a list...and keep the costs reasonable... (no problem, I'm a cheap girl.. CS for me!)

How did I miss this entire thread? I don't know. Anyway, I just got a part time job (20 hours/week working from home...). My DH thinks it is to help with bills and college savings (that sort of boring thing...). I know it is to support my Disney habit. It is paying for my trip in January. Maybe it will be paying for a mommy only trip in August. Hmmmm. I'll have to think on that!

BernardandMissBianca
07-18-2007, 10:34 AM
don't forget too that some of the packages includes I think dinner each day.

If we ship some breakfast type food down than we only need tickets and money for lunch.

I'm going to do some more research and get back to you.

That's kinda what I was thinking- fly out Sunday night. That way if I decided to skip the crop on Sunday, I would have time to hit a park, maybe DTD, relax by the pool...It's really gonna depend on what's going on at the time, however, a later flight would allow for that.
