I'll be going to the first MNSSHP with 5 DGF's! One friend hasn't been to Disney since she was 12 maybe 30 years ago. (She's my "much younger than me friend!);) I'm really looking forward to this trip, even though when I return home, my first day of classes will be just 3 days away! This is my end of summer fling. DH isn't completely out of the loop, after my DGFs go home, he and I are going on a 3 night RCCL cruise!

Bobbi:goodvibes

PS. tufenuff, our DGC will be with us for a 3 night Halloween weekend in a treehouse. Sharing with those kids makes me so happy! I hope you have a great family vacation. Where are you staying?

Your "summer fling" sounds wonderful!! I know you'll have a fantastic time before classed begin.

We're staying at the Boardwalk. DH loves it over there! He likes SSR also but I thought since the F&W is going on and he's never been to it this would be the ideal location! I thought about the Treehouses for next June when DB and family comes again but I waited too late. That's ok...I'm booked into a 2BR at SSR so all is good.



Have a great weekend Bobbi! :thumbsup2

Linda! I'm here, my friend! We leave on Sunday, Oct. 2nd so we are only 29 days out...:banana: I received the DME booklet in the mail yesterday, used Frequent Flyer miles to get our flights booked and we are READY. Now I'm just trying to stockpile a little spending money for the trip. We purchased those wristlet gift cards last year for F & W which worked like a dream. SWIPE AND EAT. They should change the name of the festival to that. We're going to the "Swipe & Eat" Festival! Whoop!

Let's count it down everyone! We'll all be there soon.

Linda, how are you and your DH preparing for the S & E? ;)

He will be 6.5mo. Both of my other kids were 13m when they had their first trip so we are starting baby bird off early!

Just a few days to our semi-happy place (DL) as a company retreat, and then a couple months until Aulani! Woo Hoo :cool1:

Our trip to WDW is now passed, but it was supposed to be a family reunion to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary...instead, it was a grieving and healing time as my father passed away 10 days after their anniversary and 10 days before the trip. I just can't bring myself to remove the ticker. :(

34 days...and 4 hours...until takeoff!!

My DH just left today to go hunting for a week...350 miles away:sad1:...so it is just me and the girls for the next 7 days. Then, in a little over a month, it's my turn:woohoo:.

Here's our "itinerary"...

Day 1: Arrival, Fantasmic, in-room dining at BLT for late dinner
Day 2: Breakfast at Chef Mickey's, AK for the day, Boma for dinner, TOTWL for dessert and fireworks
Day 3: Breakfast at The Wave, Epcot for the day, check in to BWV, SoA for dinner
Day 4: Breakfast in the room, DHS for the day, LeCellier for dinner, Epcot/Illuminations after dinner
Day 5: MK in the morning, Olivia's for lunch, back to MK for MSEP, Wishes and evening EMH
Day 6: Breakfast at Kouzzina, DME back to airport at 11:30...flight departs at 2:30:sad1:.

First two nights, we have a LV studio at BLT with the DxDDP. The last three nights, we have a standard 1BR at BWV. It will be my first stay at both of them so I am knocking 2 resorts off of my "to try" list.

I am waiting for my DME packet. Once that arrives, I feel like I'm in the "home stretch"...but then what:confused3? Around 20-30 days out, I hit the "stall" phase...too late to tinker with anything, too early to start actual packing. DH was laughing at me because I've done a few "dry runs" with my packing, trying to figure out which bags will work the best, what will fit where, how much clothes I really need, etc. I've gone through my "practice packing" several times already and he thinks I am just ridiculous. Well, last night, he ate his words:lmao:. He was scrambling to get all of his hunting gear together...couldn't fit everything in the duffel he thought he was going to take...frantically searched for a duffel that would work...had to find the power cords to his electronics...needed batteries...had to buy a new flashlight...and on, and on:rolleyes1. He finally admitted that perhaps he should have tried a "practice pack" a few weeks ago:rotfl2:.

The wristlet is a wonderful invention for use at the F & W Festival. You can purchase them at Guest Relations and several other places throughout Epcot including the F & W headquarters(where Wonders of Life used to be). It's just a small themed gift card that is on an expandable wristlet which makes it very easy to just "Swipe & Eat". You don't have to keep going to your wallet for cash or a credit card. It is BRILLIANT. We are definitely getting those again!

Have a blast! :goodvibes

Silly question...is it just Epcot guest relations or will all the parks have them? We are going to DHS on our arrival night and have to go to GR anyways to get our AP vouchers exchanged and buy a TIW card. If I can get my giftcard-on-a-bracelet while I'm at it, that would be great.

Kristen, I'm not sure. I think you can only get the F & W themed gift cards at Epcot. But I could be wrong about that.

I so totally understand this. I'm at 23 days, getting really anxious :cool1: but kinda bored at the same time :confused3
The arrangements are all made, but it is too early to pack, order groceries or stalk the weather sites. So for now I am piling things on top of the suitcases waiting until it gets close enough to actually put things in them. Once the 15 day forecast is available then I know it is just around the corner and I can start preparing again.

To another PP, I love the "practice packing" idea! :thumbsup2

I can't believe I totally forgot the DME!!! Cee - if I hadn't taken the time NOW to read up on some of the posts I'd never have remembered to schedule it. Lucy at MS said not to worry. She personally has spoken to DME Management and they told her that "if a member doesn't get his or her package, simply give the DME personal at the desk the "airline luggage tag" and they'll retrieve the luggage and deliver it. But I sure hope I get my package by 10/8!

You realize this all the Federal Government's fault. If I wasn't on this darn Special Jury Duty I'd have more time for Disney!!!!:rotfl2:

I'm so sorry for your loss. It's been awhile since I've been on the board and just now saw your post. My sympathies. However, I can't think of a better place to "remember" all the wonderful times you shared with your father and family than in WDW.

Right now just keeping fingers crossed that my future daughter-in-law will be able to postpone a DMV hearing that she received for a day during our stay. She won't know til the end of the month/early Oct. if the judge will postpone. We are a party of 9 going (4 studios). Dh and I are definitely going just hoping they can go (as well as her parents). (Her parents were in the car with her when the accident occurred, as well as her grandmother who unfortunately passed in the accident). Thanksgiving day accident and she receives this now.

Still need to place the Garden Grocer order and truly figure out what clothes I am bringing (we're going carry-on only). Also need to pack the small box I am shipping to myself (trading pins, toiletries, etc)

I am MORE than ready for a vacation. :goodvibes

It's Maxwell House Filter Paks and the coffee comes already in the filters! I order from Amazon.com since they seem to be the only ones who now carry t his.

Now; I must warn you. I just went back and looked at my order. In my "excitment" I didn't notice the words "4 Pak" at the end. I'm hoping I don't get "4 cans" of coffee. Otherwise I'll have to see if I can freez it since I'm not going back to Disney for another 8 moths! LOL...I've orderd in the past and only received "1 can" so we'll see. I think I had this same thought last time I ordered also and don't remember receiving 4 cans. We'll see! :rotfl:

Hey I'll tell you what....IF I should get 4 cans of this stuff and you're interested I'll ship you a can. We can talk off line about details but seriously; I have a Keurig Coffee maker so I really can't use these except when I go to Disney. Let's see what comes and then I'll let you know!

So for anyone who's going to be in the world 10/9 - 10/15 - if you see this man and woman "zipping around" like a fireflies" you'll know it me and my husband who drank waaaaaaay too much coffee! LOL..:rotfl2:

OMG Cee...you have just "9 more sleeps" as of this posting!! Which means I have.............16 more sleeps until I'm on my way!!!:banana::banana:

I actually ordered today my coffee. It comes already in "a filter" so just like the ones you get in the set up, I just "pop and brew".

Will you be taking a laptop or notebook so you can tell us what's going on while we wait for our turn to go?? :rotfl::rotfl:

Oh...oh....I got my ME package today!! Yipee!!! NOW I'm really ready to go! :woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::dance3::dance3::dance3:

I know, Linda! SO excited. :banana: I just bought some Dunkin' Donuts coffee yesterday and they have new flavors for the holidays. I got some Pumpkin Spice and my old fav, French Vanilla. I won't have a laptop with me, but my girls both have "smart" phones(they're smarter than I am, I can tell you that!), so it's possible that I could somehow figure out how to post to the Dis while I'm there.

It's a little crazy, but the closer I get, the more apprehensive I am of those feelings of it finally being here and then OVER much too soon. I need to STOP that and just enjoy it!

Let the countdowns continue........! :thumbsup2

It is getting close, just under 3 weeks. I think I'll start the packing this weekend. Our last trip was August and it was so hot and miserable, so I'm looking forward to this trip for some hopefully better weather. Plus it's a 2 week trip with one week of family and one week without family....that's the perfect vacation for us!

8 days...

groceries ordered
most of the packing is organized
Fed Ex box ready to ship on Friday
debating on-line check-in (I didnt put in a room request and want a 1st floor, so if I don't get that, then I would have to stand in the regular line anyway)
still need to gather electronics (chargers, wireless router, etc)

180 days...

dining reservations made this morning - got everything I wanted at the times I wanted :thumbsup2
still need to reserve the Marcelline to MK tour
still need to decide drive or fly? Most likely drive unless an amazing air deal pops up

I thought about doing the on-line check-in for the resort, but the last time I did that I had the very last room down the hall; near Jellyrolls (3001) and that's just a little too far for these ole knees to handle each day. :rotfl: I don't mind walking believe me. But that's a L-O-N-G walk at the end of the day! :rotfl:

I'm packing now too!

Bought the liquor and a new razor today (although I am not sure how those two things are related:lmao:); laundry is in the dryer right now; haircut and pedicure are scheduled for Monday...

Between now and when I leave, I have a lot going on...

Tomorrow (Wed): DD8 has school pictures, DD6 has a field trip to the apple orchard

Thursday: Pick up niece from school at 11:15 and take her to daycare...gymnastics at 6pm

Friday: DD6 has school pictures...DD8 has a field trip...I have to work 2:30pm-4:30am...

Saturday: Sleep in until noon...work 2:30pm-4:30am again

Sunday: Sleep in until noon...spend the afternoon with the family and finish up any last-minute details

Monday: Spa appointment at 10am...PACK EVERYTHING! Before I go to bed, EVERYTHING must be packed and ready to go...

Tuesday: Up at 6am to get kids to school (DH works so he is gone by 4:45am)...go back to bed at 7:30am once the girls are on the bus...get back up by noon to get ready for work...work 2:30pm-4:30am again

Wednesday: Up by noon...check in for flight at 12:30 to secure business-class upgrade...get ready for work again at 2:30pm...scheduled to work only until 11:30pm but since nobody has offered to cover from 11:30p-4:30a, I will probably stay on until 2-2:30am.

Thursday: TIME TO GO!! I'm planning on getting up around 9am, showering and getting on my traveling clothes (running tank, yoga pants, sneakers, zip-front fleece and a hat). My mom is picking me up around 10am to head to the airport for our 12:30 flight:banana:.

Linda! I just got back yesterday...OMG, it is so wonderful there. The weather was PERFECT. Low 80's/mid-60's and no humidity and it never rained once! The Boardwalk is glorious and F & W Festival is beyond outstanding. Here are my favorites for your consideration, everyone:

America: Jim Bean Red Stag Lemonade(have two, they're small;))
Ireland: Fisherman's Pie and Chocolate Lava Cake :cloud9:
Hawaii: Pork Slider w/Dole Pineapple Chutney :goodvibes
Australia: Lamb Chop :worship:
New Zealand: Lamb Slider w/Tomato Chutney(of course!)

Well, it's ALL great!

Wait times were approximately 10-30 minutes max at most attractions. Soarin' was 20-50 min. and we rode it twice with minimal wait. The new Star Tours at the Studios is AMAZING. There's just too much to tell you all! All I can say is, have a BLAST and treasure every second because it all goes by so fast. Thank goodness I have my January trip to look forward to!

Bon Voyage to everyone going next week and I'm sending my friend, Linda, a huge :hug: to take with you!

October rocks! ROCKtober! OH! I saw .38 Special and Jon Secada at the "Eat to the Beat" concerts and they were both awesome! Don't miss the concerts! Okay, that's it for now....over and out!:goodvibes

New Zealand: Lamb Slider w/Tomato Chutney(of course!)

Well, it's ALL great!

Wait times were approximately 10-30 minutes max at most attractions. Soarin' was 20-50 min. and we rode it twice with minimal wait. The new Star Tours at the Studios is AMAZING. There's just too much to tell you all! All I can say is, have a BLAST and treasure every second because it all goes by so fast. Thank goodness I have my January trip to look forward to!

Bon Voyage to everyone going next week and I'm sending my friend, Linda, a huge :hug: to take with you!

October rocks! ROCKtober! OH! I saw .38 Special and Jon Secada at the "Eat to the Beat" concerts and they were both awesome! Don't miss the concerts! Okay, that's it for now....over and out!:goodvibes

Hi Cee!! I was thinking of you all week!! I'm so happy you had such a good time! I don't think our weather is going to be quite as nice as your's however but what the heck; it's Florida and I expect rain.

I'll definately keep all your suggestions in mind! I'm particularily interested in the Jim Beam1 :rotfl:

Well I expect some longer wait times Monday due to it being Columbus Day but after that I have a feeling it'll be clear sailing. What we really want to hit is Toy Story Mania; I still haven't been on that!! :laughing:

Well my friend....treasure your memories and start planning the January trip NOW!! :thumbsup2 DH is bringing his laptop so I'll try and do a TR daily.

See you in a week! :hug:

After this weekend, I need a vacation more than ever!!!

On Thursday morning, I got a call from DH who was at work. He had pulled up on an accident scene on the expressway when someone plowed into the back of his cruiser:scared1:. Luckily, he had not yet removed his seatbelt and he parked far enough away so the impact did not force him into the car in front of him. He ended up at the occupational health center getting his neck and back x-rayed. Thankfully, he has no structural damage, just a lot of muscle strain and soreness.

Then, last night, I was at work when I was struck with the WORST headache I've ever had:headache:. I ended up going to the ER and getting pumped full of sleepy-night-night drugs:sick:. (It pays to be a paramedic that the nurses and doctors are familiar with) The headache finally went away (or I fell asleep...not sure which) and I got up today at noon to go back to work.

So, after all of that drama, I am ready to leave:cool2: Only 5 more sleeps!!
