THanks for the info but I don't have a Chase card. I try not to have any credit cards (I treat them like free money then cry when I get the bill ) so I'm a cash dealer. I wonder if VISA are doing any deals on GC's

Here's the skinny on us:

When: Nov 29th to Dec 8th

Where: POP Century

Who: Me (Mike - age 43), DW (Roxy - age 38), DD1 (PumpkinGirl - age 16), and DD2 (Bean - age 13)

Why: First time traveling to 'the World' at Christmastime!!!!! And as a bonus our kids have no idea we're going, they think I'm planning for a trip in December of 2013!
I'm checking into POP on Nov 29th too! You will LOVE being at WDW during Christmas time, it's even more magical. Good luck with the surprise trip How are you telling them?

It does!

Ok, so lets do a run down on what I have done so far for the trip ....

Bought a travel size bar of soap .... then promptly used it cuz it was sooooo cute, I just couldn't resist

Found a travel pack of wipes in my cupboard - score!

Bought my sneakers, wore them yesterday to start breaking them in and admired them constantly as I walked passed anything reflective.

Ummmmm ..... thats it! Woah. Looks like I'll be doing my normal and running round grabbing what I need 2 days before we leave. I love the pressure

(I can hear BDL screaming from here!)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

The funniest part is, I didn't see the last part until AFTER I was done straight-arm clapping about the news. But that is still awesome news.

Also, this morning, I turned on my little Christmas countdown clock. 75 days 14 hrs and 22 min, in case anyone was wondering.

Good morning everyone!!

I am home today, feeling a little under the weather and it's not me to stay in bed and rest when I am sick.

So I was able to check pricing again last night to see the difference in cost to switch to a full stay at WL instead of a split stay with POFQ. I told DH and then he was heistant. We discussed it the night before and he was all for the change. Arg! Just want to have set plans in mind. I think today I will list out the weeks schedule for him with both plans in mind. Hoping that will make him decide.

Hey!! They are really cute shirts. And I might have bought 2 pairs of pajama pants when I bought the WS shirts. They came yesterday and are really cute and soft.

You are so right! But I hate when it's something that I decide rather than what WE want. I always feel guilty.

You are a much nicer person than me. Play up the convenience of staying in one place versus packing up again and moving for a split stay. (I know it's really not that bad, but hopefully he doesnt know that.)
