Thank you You have some beauties coming up yourself I'm quite jealous of your lengthy cruises!

I ony have 3 weeks of vacation time, so have to be creative with the time. The 4 nighters will not take any time off, just will be a 'long weekend'. I just have to make sure she schedules me appropriately.

We are doing pretty well vacation wise, I just having to wait so long in between them...

The longer the better for me, I think I could be one of those that could live on a cruise ship.

That was going to be my question for you, it seems like a lot of vacation time, but if you're including some of the vacation days to be your regular days off that makes sense.

Those are some nice ones. I just have to try and get some nice ones going now, and cross my fingers, I can take the ones already scheduled.

Thank you!

I knew you guys would understand

I'm looking forward to trying the other resorts, hopefully I won't miss Jambo House too badly.

My fingers are crossed for you too. I'd hate for you to have to reschedule again, that would just be heartbreaking.

I work 4 ten hour shifts, so I can take a five day weekend and still get in all my hours each week. I have made all sorts of calendars and charts to make sure it all works. After going last December for four days, I know it's enough time to de-stress and come back refreshed and ready to tackle things again.

Have you started planning your Aulani trip?

That's why I'm putting a few short trips inbetween. I have discovered I'm much too impatient to wait too long between trips.

Oh my, that would be wonderful

Your vacation plans look great to me. Sending pixie dust and that all will be approved quickly.

Plans for your trip in 15 days looks good to me. It seems like you have a lot of flexability worked into the plans that everyone should be happy. There is also the possibility that R & M may want to set off on their own once they are secure with the resort, transportation and parks. Either way you have a pretty perfect plan for a great family vacation.

Thank you! I'm hoping she doesn't take too long approving everything. My mind will be much happier knowing everything is in place.

I'm hoping they get comfortable at some point. I know I don't want to spend the whole time guiding them around. Hopefully that isn't too mean. I'm going to try and go with the flow.

They're getting really excited that it's right around the corner which is nice to see.

Your plans look great and yeah for only having 8 more shifts to work. I would be jumping for joy.

I ate at the counter service in Morocco this trip and it was by far one of the best CS experiences ever. We had the slider platter. Now, you have to know that I far prefer seafood and fish over any type of meat, especially lamb. But, let me tell you - those lamb sliders were too die for. OMG! I can't WAIT to eat them again.

We had dinner at the Pepper Market and I had the fish tacos. They were very good (just a notch under the lamb sliders). The desserts there were also amazing. I think you will find plenty of options there. It was yummy and it wasn't crowded for dinner.

7 more now I'm almost getting to be really excited. It's just far enough away to feel out of reach still.

Thanks for the food tips! R might really enjoy the lamb sliders. I know if I ever get my dad back to Disney those would be on the list for sure.

I think the Pepper Market will be great for everybody. Mom has never seen CSR, and I'm excited to show it to her. She and dad had separated before we went on that trip. The theming is just so fabulous I think she'll just love it.

I'll be getting to the MK plans in the next few days (hopefully) and wanted to see what everyones' favorite MK ride is. Is it even possible to choose just one. Top of my list is Peter Pan, it just leaves me feeling happy and good

I also love Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, and Stitch's Great Escape. Many others come very close behind, but I'd be content if that's all I got to do.

What are your must do's?
