Now I'm trying to decide about the dining plan and park tickets... decisions, decisions!! I'm so excited!! We're going the first weekend in October, which also happens to fall during the Food & Wine event. My goal is to convince him that we NEED to buy DVC! So wish me luck, send me prayers... whatever will make it work!!
Very nice! I would do the dning plan. The last time we went, it was during the Food & Wine Fest, and we used all our snack credits there.

You're going to have a very Disney October!!!

I am not doing any tours either.

I will go to NR, I haven't been there yet. Other than that just people watching, riding rides, having a glass or bottle of Magicale. I will be buying a bottle to bring one home.


Hi Dawn glad you made it home safe!

aahh Debra.. i'm sorry you are having challenges with your son.. he's a good kid just going through a rough age... you are a Strong Intelligent and Good Mother.. i 'm sending you lots of love through this time.

I'll be on the laid back plan on this trip too.

I was really hoping we could plan a movie night and order in chinese food or pizza or something fun.

Does anyone else bring things to eat in the room? We always do. I like having breakfast in the room each day. Then we have lunch and dinner at the park with snacks in the room later that night.

I bring cheeses and crackers with deli meats for the snacks. Usually homemade cookies and we had the great candy from mixer night candy bar last year!

I hope we do the candy bar again..that was alot of fun!

Dawnikins is home! I hope you had a fun trip, even though it wasn't the best of circumstances.

Big hugs to everyone.

You all just reminded me about the scavenger hunt, I haven't thought about it in awhile. I have a little list of clues already made up, but there's still a long ways to go on it. Too bad I can't meet up with my fellow committee members in October to work on it. *sigh* poor me (and Beth and Deb for not getting to go either in October).

Stacie, Saratoga Springs?? As in WDW?? How fun!!! He's going to love it, and I'm sure you'll have no trouble selling him on DVC.

Off to get ready, see ya later.
Yup, WDW!! And I had a Beth-kind of day today: had a biopsy done on a nodule that's on my thyroid, had blood taken to check my hormones and had my teeth cleaned! What fun!!

That's what I was thinking about F & W. And yes, my October will be very Disney!!

As for DVC, my hubby is completely against it. We already own a timeshare, which we got resale for VERY cheap! So he doesn't understand paying so much more, even resale, for DVC. AND it's hard to justify with 2 kids in college, and he says "We don't go to Florida that much anyways..." Yes, I would like SSR, just for the fact that when we do go to Florida, we'd have someplace nice to stay. I thought about the GC but it costs more, not out for resale yet, and we can stay pretty cheap at Hojo's or another close hotel. And the fact that they've broken ground in Hawaii is another good incentive!!

Hey to everyone! Hopefully I can keep my secret until we go!!

I like Indy! It's not my fave, but I can go on it once. Anymore then that and I get a headache.

I'm going to NR.. my mom.. Melody.. Cheryl... i think Courtney and her mom said they wanted to go... and it's open if others might like to join us.
Thank you
Okay. Wait, I'm confused. So the night of the group character dinner at Goofy's some of you are going to Napa Rose? I thought that was going to be our one group meal that we voted on? Or do you mean some of you are going to NR after for dessert?

If there are going to be different groups going to different meals that night, then I'll probably skip Goofy's and go to House of Blues or something. I'm not a huge fan of Goofy's and was only going to go because I thought that's what the group voted on, and that was going to be our one big group meal.

Oh joy. Sounds like my kind of day for sure! lol But hey, it's good to get all this stuff done. Not fun. But good.

And stay strong!!! Don't give in to telling him your secret!

For all of us not doing tours and inviting ourselves along with Melody to ride the scary rides with Beth......ummmm, I would need someone to hold my hand on TOT.....that is if someone could drag me on it.

I roomed with Beth and January last year......you know, the room that was more like a convenience store.

Yep, others definitely bring stuff to eat and drink in the room. Now that I think back on it, I can't remember if I payed Beth back for buying the snacks and my oh-so-important Diet Pepsi? Gee, I hope I remembered to do that.

Beth, can you remember if I payed you back for our supplies?

Hey Capri - if I can do it, you can do it I would hold your hand, but I need both of mine to hold so I don't go flying up *er - not really, it's not skeery!!!!*


Beth - if you can handle Indy (which is a bone rattler!), you can totally do Space Mountain or Tower of Terror. You can do it

Big hugs for wendylouwho... yes we need to work on the scavenger hunt. I picked up the paper for the hand outs..and we are doing good on prizes. Just keep thinking up questions and challenges. We should probably do an email share to see where we are all at.

theresa.. me too! i bought stuff to make individual candy bags like last year... i haven't bought candy yet,of course ..i've just found pirate suprises to go with the candy. can't tell how happy i am about the trip. and if they don't do a candy bar.. oh well then we have little treats.

stacielee... oh i am so sorry! you take good care of you tonnight. pixie dust with the dvc

I understand that many of you have done tours already, I'm a newbie and will be happy with any tour since it will be my only trip without kids for quite awhile. Any other newbies have ideas on tours you may want to do?

I see that a few of you are ride wimps, who will go on the thrill rides with me?

It's a little early for planning but anything you need help with just let me know!

I've also been figuring out some questions for the hunt. It's fun!


And I'll hold anyone's hand, and go on any ride. Oh.........except the evil gondolas!! My DD Kaitlyn hates that ride. Said it is the scariest one, she has ever been on. That was enough of a clue for me!!
