Ahhhh resort-itis! I was struck by this very same disease last year. I must have switched resorts 3 or 4 times!

I don't know much about CSR, it kind of flies under the radar I think. I did put clients there last year because they wanted to stay in a mod and that was the only one available. They absolutely loved it! And it looks beautiful from the pictures I've seen. I think I may have to give that resort a try one of these days. I've never stayed at a mod.

Good luck today!

Let me know how you make out this morning, I'm eager to hear how applying FD and switching resorts went! Lots of for good luck!!!
We liked POFQ but I really wanted to try another resort--there are so many, why not? Update coming soon...

Update time, including FD!

Photopass CD
Thanks to our fabulous travel agent, I was able to get the photopass cd preorder for $49.95!!! That is just an amazingg deal ($100 off full price, $50 off preorder price).

Free Dining Update
I am happy to say that we were able to get free dining!! Our amazing TA was able to even get the other two rooms moved over to free dining too after I got dropped four times this morning when trying to be transferred to grand gatherings. I know they were experiencing some technical difficulties according to the free dining thread but I was not thrilled. Thank goodness for A!

So we are at CSR with Free dining, from September 11-18th : We are so excited and happy with how our trip is coming together!!

Upcoming To Do List

Here is what is upcoming on my Disney to-do list.

May 15th: should have EMHs out—are we going to try to hit any? (Thought is we will avoid morning EMHs b/c busier park that day—one exception would be AK to get on the Safari ASAP)
--Check golf information
--Begin autograph book for Lilian
--Plan 90 day mark party!!
--Plan State bags
--Plan welcome treat for Lilian
--send out information regarding MNSSHP. Price of tickets, date and costume/shirts. Take count—do I order the tickets for all and get reimburse or have them buy the tickets individually if they choose to come?
May 30th: Finish binder sheets and dividers
--Bigger binder
--Begin putting together smaller binder

Next Sewing Project

I hope to begin my next sewing project this week/weekend. It probably will not happen until Friday since I need to finish one more school project. I am planning an Ariel dress with a shirred top. I hope it comes out really cute! :

Thanks Jenny! Resort-itis has been known to get several DISers. I am excited about CSR! I think it will be a great resort to try.

YAY! I knew that A could do it for ya!

Let me ask, how did she get a $50 photopass CD!! I was going to pre order with the $100 deal, but just wondering if it was just a limited time, or if I can do it for December

Woohoo for free dining

Hooray for Free Dining! That is great that you were able to move everyone over to CSR.

I'm wondering about the photopass too...how on earth did you get it for $50? I thought the $100 preorder was awesome, but $50!!!! That is fantastic! I'm going to do my preorder soon before Disney changes their minds again and gets rid of it.

Woohoo! Glad everything worked out!

I was on the phone with Disney this morning too. Not for FD but because they screwed up my clients ME information.

On MNSSHP, if I were you I would let everyone buy their own ticket. That way you don't have to worry about getting money from everyone or someone changing their mind at the last minute and eating the ticket. The latter is what usually happens to me! So I make sure I either get the money first or let them do it themselves!
