We have canceled prob 3 trips so far..... one day, we will make it back. It's just really tough right now financially. I still try to do a Big Give each month, but sometimes- even that is pushing it, much less a Disney trip lol. I hope to take my son back when he is 3 or 4 - that would be magical!He is turning 3 at the end of this month and I can't believe it. Growing up way too fast. He turned 1 at Disney World, but I know he doesn't remember it at all. Once I find a job- I will save up little by little to go!

For the planner in me, this had been a strange thing for me not to plan each day out ahead of time....our first day which ever bus is there when we get to the stop is where we will go for the day!

What a great reason for a bonus trip.

When we used to go to WDW as a family, my younger son and I were always the early risers, so one day we decided to get up before the others, take the first bus, and eat breakfast wherever it took us. We have a delicious breakfast at Restrantasaurs (I'm pretty sure I butchered the name) in AK.

(But basically I'm a planner, too )

I always say I'm going to chill more and do exactly what you're planning -- or not planning. Enjoy!

Must have been bittersweet to see Goofy.

Ooooooo. I've read about the beignets. Yum.

So if POFQ is a surprise, just where does Megan think she is staying?

Welcome Cheryl,

it really is a great reason for a trip Judy was feeling bad that we are coming all that way just to spend a little bit of time with them....I was "not like we can't find something else to do" and we are not about to infringe on their entire trip....this is such a wonderful, happy trip for them and also just to have that family time together is priceless for them!

Whenever we get something from WDW with Goofy on it, we take it as a sign of love from Jim...he wasn't the big Disney lover Megan and I are, but did enjoy WDW more than DLR (when we lived in CA we had AP's and went a lot, He'd stay home and say have a fun time)

we really plan on taking it slower this trip....our day for MNSSHP we are staying at the resort, swim, laundry (if needed - hope to pack a bit lighter) nap so we will be rested for a long night of

is ginger and rod behaving themselves, better keep an eye on them....we don't want any little 16oz and nuggets running around

Welcome Andrea!
she thinks we are staying at POP again....had booked that initially, then she was looking through one of my WDW books and saw PO....I did get a pretty good deal with the change and since it had a fridge and coffee maker included that sealed the deal for me! she does know we are going on the carriage ride at PO to "check out the resort" for a future stay so that's why I bought the POFQ dress D~ made for the carriage ride

You had better not be posting on here when Megan is looking over your shoulder! Won't she snoop and read your PTR? Let me know if you need me to delete my posts!

ROFL... I usually have multiple tabs open at the top, and if one of them walks in, I just switch tabs.

Have you thought about when and where you will reveal POFQ to her? As the bus pulls in? At the airport waiting? Will the resort be on your luggage tags?

Lisa - you're going to keep me honest yet. What am I going to do while you are on vacation?

Actually, I have been sewing... I go upstairs, sew a bit of applique, get mad, come down stairs, get a drink, stop by the computer... same vicious cycle over and over again. I wish they had a sewing machine guy like this...
