wow.. how exciting.. glad you are keep the deluxe plan. I was hoping you would especially since I remember this is the last time you could cash in on the child meals on the plan.

I just ordered my MNNSHP tickets for sep 15th.. loved it last year and can't wait to do it again! <3

Have you considered a stroller swap? A friend I referred to the "dis" boards got in on a free swap for August and was so happy.

Everything sounds awesome! I'm so excited for you and your family! Yeah!!!!!

If the cost of a decent stroller would be less than an overall rental, then I'd say buy it. You can always sell it later on and recuperate some of your money from it. Can't do that with the rental.

Hmmm...trying to think of something for Bryan....

LaNouba looks so Cool

I love Disney Mail

I can relate with the Magical express. The reservation was in my name and I was the only one not on the booklet when I got it too

Halloween tickets are cute


Getting so close now..a few more days and you will be in the 20s
Thanks Kelly! We are really looking forward to La Nouba! We got a great 30% discount through DVC! My new ME booklet came already!

Love seeing your MNSHP tickets... that will be so fun. Your kids are the perfect age for that, I cannot wait to do that someday when mine are bigger. DH and I loved it, I liked it better than the Christmas Party to be honest.

Hannah rides in our MaClaren a lot.... it fits her nice, and she is about the same size as Eric right. 90 is a lot less than renting one, I am dreading forking out that money, but we are lots of trips away from not needing a stroller.

So excited about your tickets to Cirque, have you seen one before? We saw O in Vegas... wow! I contemplated getting tickets for DH and I and leaving the kids one night, but I decided that is a lot of work right now. Someday....

Here is hoping you get BLT for your fall trip, that would be awesome.

For Father's Day I did order DH a Mickey tee, the all american one on Disney shopping... he is a patriotic guy so I thought since we are there close to the fourth he would like, maybe Bryan needs it for the fourth of july. (I think he is getting a darn DVD player for Father's Day... ours is acting up and he refuses to get a new one, much to Hannah's dismay!)

Have a great week Diane... love watching those days tick tick tick down!
Thanks Laura! I love the cleos, I have been "breaking" them in and they are so comfy! I went to disney shopping and they didn't have Bryan's size in that shirt I was leaning toward a massage at the SSR spa but he's not a spa kind of guy I hope the next 4 weeks fly by too!!

I got my ME stuff this past week too. They misspelled my sister and nieces last names so I called and requested more. How important is it if their names are spelled right on the booklet? I didn't think to ask for a reprint on the booklet too. For now I'm going to wait and see what they send me.

We're down to 35 sleeps. I wish we had a Disney Musical to help speed the time up. We do have the end of school and dance recital to help hurry things along.

Have you thought about renting a stroller from an outside vendor? It would save you having to haul it down there and back, but you would still have it 24/7 while you're there.
That stinks they messed up your ME paperwork too! Spelling the names wrong shouldn't be too big of a deal! I think I am going to splurge and get the Maclaren. Thanks for the tip on the outside vendor though!

Thanks Dana! I think I am going to just go ahead and get the Maclaren, I have a target gift card too for $50 so really I will just be paying $40!

Does Bryan like speed? You could splurge and set him up with the Richard Petty Drive thing. My husband doesn't follow racing but he would love to drive the race car.

When I first read this, I immediately thought of drugs when you said , " Does Bryan like speed?" I guess that's what working with middle school aged kids will do to you!! A good thought though, I will check it out!!

I love those crocs and have to find me some. Are they comfy? I just got my MNSSHP tickets too I say buy a stroller here, especially if it's cheaper. I love having ours for DTD and anything else we might need it for. Plus, you can get use out of it at home

Hey Dianne,
Our crocs are identical, great minds think alike : ) Our MNSSHP tickets came in the mail too, aren't they cool! As for the stroller, we're in the same boat and we have a Volo for Lauren and are bringing that, the rental rates are so expensive, plus for late nights to the buses and DTD I'd like to have it.

Love the crocs ... funny that alot of DISers have the same ones. I have looked at them myself but I like buying the jibitz (it's the kid in me). How exciting to receive the MNSSHP tickets ... I love that they have the characters on them.
When my boys were little we bought a couple of inexpensive umbrella strollers that we took to Disney. The were light weight and had a clip-on umbrella for shade. It was definitely nice to have for the long walks to the buses at night. Also, a few times we didn't feel like lugging them with us all day so we even rented a stroller but didn't feel guilty because they weren't too expensive.

Hey! Totally would get the stroller -- We have ours for DS's who will be just turning 4 and 7 this June.... debating double vs. single. Not sure how DS7 will do in the heat... But Maclarens are great -- we have the Quest and the double which has been a great investment! RE the volo, it is roomier across than the others, but doesn't have a sun shade -- however if your DS wears a hat, that solves it. I say good choice!
