My husband's debit card was recently stolen as well, BofA was great about everything. We know that the stores they used our card at have footage of it, so we are just waiting for the police to get back to us. I too don't understand why you would steal a debit/card these days. With all our technology you are going to get caught. Hopefully you guys can catch the person !
Welcome!!

With technology, purchasing stuff online, you leave behind your IP address. Purchasing merchandise, you have to ship somewhere.......so if you use your home address or work address you're busted. If you send to a PO Box, most places have info on who rents the box (and security cameras to see who comes and gets stuff out).........so I imagine this will be pretty easy to bust. Just feeling a tad "violated"!!

Finally made it over here Laurie!!

I am SO HAPPY your check finally came!!

And PPH Concierge?!?! Thats a dream right there! I know a lot of people love the DLH and GCH but the PPH was awesome in my mind!!

I am looking at a quickie trip the end of this month but I'm not sure it's worth it. I would drive down after work on Tuesday November 27th, spend a few hours in the park. Wednesday in the park, and then I would have to leave Thursday around 1pm to make the drive back as I would work that night. So I would basically get 1.5 park days and they are SHORT park days at that! Only open 10am-8pm... I'm torn as it's quite the drive (about 6 hrs each way) + 2 nights at a hotel... not sure its worth it!! Ugh the decisions we make for our Disney Love!!

Hey Laurie -

Sorry about your bank account, but thankfully you got it taken care of right away. Looks like your trip is full speed ahead and I am excited for you and your family.

I know, I feel so hoity toity (or however you spell that) staying Concierge!!! It will be so nice going back to the park and knowing we'll be comfortable, have a great view and access to some drinks and snacks!

I think any trip, no matter how long or short the trip is worth it!!! (as long as this doesn't keep you from going end of Feb) The park is amazing and if you just plan on going to catch a few of the holiday offerings (parade, fireworks, HMH and Small World) you won't be sorry.

Well I hope it's been dealt with......they told me it would take up to 24 hrs to reverse the 3 charges and when I checked it before dinner......they were still pending!

We're under 30 days now, so we're definitely full speed ahead.

Ha-Ha... actually if I DON'T go on this short trip I would be less likely to go in February! If I go on this trip I will be upgrading to the Premier Pass (now isn't that all Hoity Toity?!? lol!) If I don't go on the short trip I'm not sure I would bother to upgrade and therefor not sure when I would go to DL again...

You could have found exactly that if you were going to DLR during my dates (which are currently 12/2-12/5, with a slight chance of switching to 12/9-12/12), but you're not! I'm staying at the PPH under quite miraculous, unexpected circumstances this year, and I have space for a roommate (especially someone who is solo) - but you're going at the end of November!

Yeah... 11/27-11/29 is the only 2 days in a row I have off through the end of the year (except for 12/5-12/14 when I will be visiting with my DH who I do not see often enough!) So I guess technically I am off for your second choice of dates but that is the time I will be celebrating Christmas with my DH and my MIL. Were you able to get rates this year like you were last year?!!?

Best I could find you was the Motel 6~Maingate for $112 (with taxes). We've stayed here before and they did a huge remodel. Actually pretty nice for a Motel 6. You will need to drive or take ART unless you like a long walk. It's doable.....but for our family......the walk back would have brutal at the end of a long day.

I'm glad you'll get to go back for an early Christmas with your hubby! I was wondering if you were able to get time off since you just got back from your lengthy WDW trip!!!

Not exactly - without going into specifics, let's just say I got an even better deal and was going to pay it forward!

I found the Good Nite Inn Buena Park for $96 but not sure if it is an okay drive... I will have my car and with the Premier Pass free parking at the park so that is not a concern. Just want to make sure it won't take more than 15 minutes to get to/from the park in the morning and at night.


Nice offer Sherry!! Too bad the dates didn't coincide!!

Yeah. I love the PPH and would love to stay there again. However they charge $15/night for parking! I don't understand that!

I'm glad you'll get to go back for an early Christmas with your hubby! I was wondering if you were able to get time off since you just got back from your lengthy WDW trip!!!
That is the great part about my regular schedule only being 3 days a week. Its easy to just take off a couple of days and get a long break. I then work as much as I can inbetween trips to earn more vacation! Unfortunately this trip will actually be to San Diego as my husband is going to try and get his hot dog business going in Yuma, AZ for the winter! I still won't get to see my doggies! I miss them so much and haven't seen them since August! The next time I see them will most likely by May I guess.
