3monkeymomma - POR
PRmamiPEdos - 10/17 - 10/20 - BW or BC

3monkeymomma 07-28-2012 02:28 PM

ME, ME, ME!!!! DH and I will be LEAVING THE KIDS HOME!!!!! We will be spending a long weekend at the F&W for our anniversary weekend from 10/17/13-10/20/13. I have my calendar alert to remind me when to book our DVC villa. Since we own at AKL, I can't book until March and I'm hoping I can still get a BW or BC studio at that point.


P.S.the kids are upset, but too bad. LOL

:welcome: You go girl, the kids will get over it. My kids would never let me live it down if I went without them (ok the 17 year old doesn't care, but to 10 year old would)

FigmentChick 08-01-2012 02:21 PM

I'm with you, figmentswife!!!! :) I've already called and I'm paying the downpayment on Friday. So excited!!! I think you and I both went in October 2011, right?

I've got our dates down pat: October 31st through November 9th at POR. We'll be neighbors! (you have to ask yourself: do I really want the crazy chick as my neighbor? lol)

AND.....to add new excitement to something that has become "old hat" to our older two children: we're going to take the auto train. It's going to save me approx $1,000. I can't wait. I just hope hubby does ok in an enclosed space for 17 hours.

Talk to you all soon!!!!!pixiedust:

YEP - we did!!!! That was my best trip EVER - just went again in April with friends - and it was BAD - so this is going to be our "make up" trip - NO FRIENDS!!!!:cool1:

What planning have you started so far?
 
Today, I went to Target and got a Mickey mouse binder, folder and notebook. We are looking at renting DVC, would love it if Swan/Dolphin has employee rates available (but we won't know this until about 60 days before we leave).
I am not banking on FREE Dining for next year b\c this year that time frame was blocked out this year. Plus I did the calculations and - we can eat 3 meals a day including 3 Character meals EXTRA and still be around $100 cheaper overall, so I think we will be paying OOP, unless they do offer the free dining.

Also, at this point, I am thinking we will NOT do matching shirts again (if you know me, you know that we usually wear them everyday), but when we were there in April, I found that I would have been much more comfortable in a tank most days....however, If the tanks I like (don't like the tight ones) go on sale for $3 or less - I will TOTALLY be getting them and have to rethink the whole thing. We will however, do "birthday" shirts on the 11th for DD birthday.

FigmentChick 08-02-2012 10:20 AM

I actually am kinda banking on free dining. LOL Next year, we will be going one week later than we normally do because we want to see the cross-over between Halloween and Christmas. Plus, the tail end will overlap with "Jersey Week" and my kids will loose two days less of school.

We do not do the matching shirt thing....hubby would kill me. :D It's enough that I get a "theme" going (all Mickey shirts, all Epcot shirts, etc.). I haven't started my binder yet, but I will.

If free dining isn't offered....no skin off our nose. We'll do just fine picking up CS around the parks. We normally don't eat all that much as it is, but the table service is nice so we can try new restaurants. I think I'm going to try and convince the family to try Coral Reef.....hubby already agreed to Le Cellier (you can bet I will be online at 5:30 am on May 4th. ;)).

I'm sorry about your April trip. That is one reason why we don't give our dates and exact resort to our family & friends. That sounds horrible, doesn't it? LOL We'll tell them we're going to Disney "towards the end of October" and "we're staying onsite". We've actually had the problem of a friend wanting to join us.....hubby said no way.

OK...that's all for now. I have to merge yesterday's sales orders and do payroll.

Have a great day everyone!!!!

I'm having that problem right now. I've already made this a trip for my mom, sister, niece, nephew, DH, DD, DS and I. When I told my best friend I was running the marathon in January, she said "maybe I'll send ____ with you". Eeek! How do I tell her we don't have the room?:guilty:

PeanutButterMom 08-02-2012 04:23 PM

me me me ! :cool1: We're planning on the 19th-27th.

Maybe we'll be neighbors. Not sure if we're staying AoA or POR/POFQ yet.

I actually have 2 different IRL good friends who are ALSO thinking about planning October Disney trips :rotfl: I think it would be hilarious if we all went the same time. Not really going "together", but since we all tend to think along the same lines, we'd probably all download the same touring plan :rolleyes: We shall see.

I'm in serious saving mode... and then DH's vehicle broke down on the way to work this morning (I have the new van, he has the beater that I've owned since before we even met! Poor CR-V has over 150,000 miles). So those obviously-needed repairs are eating into the savings that I had put away already :sad1:

I'm still super excited though! :goofy:

PeanutButterMom 08-02-2012 04:29 PM

Also, I am VERY confused between FigmentChick and figmentswife :upsidedow

figmentswife 08-02-2012 09:52 PM

I am typing this from my phone on the new dis app....so will see if it goes through.......

FigmentChick is the super cool one......figmentswife.....is married to him.


Hehehe. Will type more tomorrow
