It sounds like the FF Italian dinner is going to be wonderful. How exciting for you all to be able to go together!!

I am looking forward to meeting you all in 3D! I just hope that we actually can take this trip.

Surgery was a success, she came through fine. I won't explain what the Doctor told me, but evidently there was a lot of infection that needed to be removed, so hopefully now that the infected tissue is gone, they will do the whole skin graft stuff to heal the holes and she will get all better soon.

I really miss WDW and while we can still get to DL (I actually snuck out there today while she was in surgery and checked out one of the new lounges and had a bite to eat and a couple of drinks, shhhhhh!) I really enjoy WDW and the vastness of it. People in So Cal have no idea what WDW is all about because they think of Disneyland in the middle of bustling Anaheim, both have their unique charm, but when we go across the country to WDW, it's totally different. I can't drive back home to get the video camera we forgot, or whatever with the cats, once we're there, we're there and we're immersed in it.

At DL we are so used to going back home at night, staying over is new to us, so I really hope that she heals up once and for all and we can start taking these longer trips. That what I bought DVC for in the first place!!!!!!!!!!

Alison,

So happy to hear Fran's surgery went well. Praying that she will now have a very quick & full recovery and this will soon be a very distant memory.

I understand what you mean about DL and WDW. Years ago I lived in LA and had many day trips (and some overnights! ) to DL! Gotta love DL as it's Walt's original, but for me there's no place like WDW!

I sure wish you would join us!

Maybe you could make a reservation, just in case!

407-939-5102

They only require a CC # guarantee and there is a 48-hour cancellation.


Happy Friday everyone!

Not this year, my friend! If all goes well, Kristin and Ashley should arrive in WDW that morning and we will have places to be. Besides, I am not about to sign up for something that has an unknown price tag right now.

I know you all will take copious notes and pictures so I will live vicariously through you!

Mark's is the opposite - he would be happy if we only did cruising going forward. He really really wants a trip on the Oasis or Allure, hmmmm, maybe some year in the future we should have a Jamborini meet scheduled on one of those!

So glad it went well! Good thoughts for a speedy recovery for Fran and that you guys actually get to take this trip.

Ecstasy is one of the older ships, comparable in size to the DCL Magic. They refurbished it prior to making Port Canaveral her new home.

Ecstasy also does an itinerary that stops in Key West (a 4 night, I think? )

I will have pictures and a TR to share when we get home!
I want in on this too.....

Sorry, we are just waking up. I picked her up at 10PM so it was 2AM before either of us got to bed. She did sleep most of yesterday. We have to get moving soon as she has an appointment to get the dressing changed and see the infectious disease Dr.

The mega-ships just don't interest me (and now of course all the cruise lines are building them! ) I really enjoy the ships that are Disney Magic or Wonder size! (2,000 to 2,500 guests)

But, if that's what I'll have to do for a Jamborini meet, then that's what I'll do!

I have zero desire to be on those particular ships, but I may have to give in once to keep getting my way the other 90% of the time LOL! That's why I'm trying to rope others in, make it more fun for me.
