~Snowbird Chat~

Hello Snowbirds!

Welcome to our new home. Come on in and make yourselves comfortable. This is a place we can all keep in touch and talk about our lives and our upcoming Disney trips (even if some of us aren't going in January again )!


BTW ~ I am going to Disney in 4 months from today!!

I'm a tad under 2.5 months until my trip!

As of today, I'm at about 95% recovered from knee surgery! It was really exciting to wake up this morning, get up, and realize that... walking felt right again!

...then, later in the day, the knee pain that drove me to my surgeon in the first place reared its ugly head and announced that it might be hear to say. It's hard to say for sure, yet, and I'm certainly going to give it a couple more weeks, as my surgeon asked me to email him at 4 weeks.

So for those who have been in September, what can I expect, weather-wise? I've been in January, February, April, July, and August. I'm assuming that it'll be more like August than February. I did, however, get travel insurance in case of a hurricane.

It's something I really am looking forward to. It's been kind of a moderately miserable year.

Thanks, Shelley! I'm here, too, looking forward to chatting. 63 days to go before I'm back in the World (as opposed to the "real world")!

Thanks for starting up this thread Shelly! Even though I just came home last week, I'm aching to go back. My DH thinks I'm being ungrateful, but I'm not! All I asked him was when do you think we can go back so I can start planning in my head. Is that so wrong? Even if it's a few years from now, I like to imagine in my head. Anyways.....I'm looking forward to staying in touch with everyone!

We've been there quite a few times in September. It can be HOT, as I am assuming it will be in August. We did hit a September one time that was cloudy all week. That was wonderful, temperature-wise.

Ok ladies I need some advice. I thought DH would have found another job by now, and he hasn't so I am starting to rethink the January trip. If you could go in either May or December 2010 which would you go? I like May b/c it's sooner. I don't like May b/c DH will more than likely miss a week of school. (He's working on his MBA.) I like December b/c of the decorations, MVMCP, and I have longer to save up spending money in the Disney pig. I don't like December b/c it's further away. What ever we do, I'm going to book it in August. This family hasn't been on a vacation since October 2006 and come heck or high water sometime next year we're going to WDW.

Oh...I am sorry you have to redo your plans!!! BUT..you know you are going back, so you just get a little longer to plan it!!! And save for it!!!! YAY! Well, does your family enjoy being out when it's hot, or do yall enjoy it when it's a little cooler? That's a big deal for us!!!! But, we did do Dec in 06 and then went back in May of 07!! THat was awesome. May trip was toward the end of the month...after Mothers Day week. It was pretty warm.. but not unbearable. Especially for us coming from the humidity factory. I was surprised how many families were there...I thought we were gonna miss it because our public schools still had 2 weeks left. Someone from there told me that Flo. schools were already out!!!!! WOW!!! I would def. do May again!!! I thought it was just beautiful with the Epcot flower thing going on. Also, it was soooo much easier to pack---all summer stuff!!!No coats, or blue jeans!!! Of course, we got to spend time at the pool at the beach club and they really loved it. Mike loves the Christmas stuff tho', so that's why we are going back in Dec.It really is beautiful...if you've never seen it, you may want to wait and book for then, especially if missing school in May is gonna be a problem with your dh's school time.
Gee, I don't think I helped you at all! Sorry!! I just wanted to give you a little view for both times!!
