Super trip report! (as always)

I was so surprised at the cost difference between the DP and out of pocket. Wow, what a difference from when the DP first became a big hit until now. Just shocking! It was really helpful too. I won't be tempted by the DP unless something changes.

Loved your souvies pic! Sheesh, I meant to get caramel corn while we were there and that oven mitt! I actually held it in my hand and then didn't buy it. Of course kicking myself now as usual. Your wine glasses are so pretty!

I notice your upcoming vacation plans. DL and Universal are on our to do list as well, not sure when we will pull it off, but am looking forward to hearing about your plans some time in the future. Until then, I will look forward to hearing about your holiday trip. I'm pretty sure you will love the time you spend at the Grand.

Thank you so much!

So glad the DDP comparison was helpful to you. You are right, it is shocking.

Make sure to get some of that yummy caramel corn next time!! DH has to get it on every trip! I love my wine glasses! They look so cool hanging in the hutch in the dining room!

I'm not really sure how all the vacation plans will come together after the December trip, but we are sure going to try for DL in the very near future!!

Hoping to get a PTR going within the next few weeks or so. Busy time of year around here!! Maybe after DS'd birthday stuff (his actual bday is today!) is over this weekend and soccer starts to wind down, then I might have some time to write!

Wow I must be losing it! I thought I had posted what a great TR! As usual!!
I am so busy with work I don't get on the DIS as much anymore.

Well I am happy to report we are going to Florida in April or July. All depends on flights for April vacation. I told DH we should just stay at Universal instead of doing a split stay since he and DS15 don't want to do Disney and he bought it!!! We're gonna do 1 day PH in Disney for yours truly!! Well DS11 still wants to go at least he's on my side lol!
So excited!!!

That's awesome ~ Congrats!! I'm so happy you get to go to WDW too and not just Universal!

How's the new job going??? I just took on a long term sub position in the middle school office. Not what I usually do, but they offered it to me and are letting me make my own hours!! Couldn't say no to that!

Happy birthday to your DS! That's so funny about the homework...Madison would probably wish for a boatload of homework for her birthday! Her teacher doesn't give a lot of homework this year (pretty much just nightly reading) and she's so mad about it. She just loves school work....not your average 5th grader!

Yep - mine is at DS13's school. But I never see him all day! Which I guess is a good thing since I'm in the office!

Thank you!

Oh DS11 doesn't see the need for homework at all, ever!! (or school ) He would rather use his time at home to play and have fun!! I don't think either of my kids have ever wished for homework!

Happy 11th Birthday to your DS! They grow up fast...I remember reading past trip reports of yours and I remember him being so young! Time flies!

Congrats on your new position! I work in the office at the elementary school here in town and I love it! I hope you end up loving your new job too!

I miss chatting with you now that your TR is over! Maybe I will write a trip report some day...I just have absolutely no time now that school is back in session. Can't wait til you start your PTR!

Does any kid honestly want to do or like Homework, if they do there is something totally wrong with them.
