Come on, enablers, help me think of some more arguments ...

Oooh, I should go do that!
Can you get airfare some other way? I rarely pay for flights. My Chase card has reward points. They can be used for anything but go the farthest on flights. I had enough this time for 3 of 4.

We took a cab to the Dolphin last year. For 4 of us it came out about the same as Mears and it was simpler.

Sorry about the double post... DD1 grabbed the phone!

However, we had two linked reservations and had to check in 2x even though we didn't change rooms.

Hope everyone had a nice holiday with their families. Ours was really nice! Now I could go to bed, but it's only 7pm, lol. DH ended up heading into work tonight so that he could get home earlier tomorrow. He has to drive to Buffalo NY to pick up and load and is hoping to be back after lunch tomorrow. And a bonus my parents took my boys home with her tonight so I have the house all to myself. Of course you would think I would have come home and put my feet up and did nothing...yeah no...I rearranged DS2's room and started rearranging DS6's but I have to wait for DH to come home tomorrow because I am not sure what to do with certain things and want his opinion. So then I proceeded to clean the common areas of the house to start getting ready for our dinner here on Saturday. Exciting, huh? Anyone heading out shopping tonight. I will sit home in the warm house and watch the crowds on the news....lol. I will however be heading to the food store tomorrow for my fixins for Saturday.

Called the Reservation line tonight and added my room requests to our reservation so I can do online check in tomorrow! AHHHH I can do online check in tomorrow!!! DH and I were talking tonight and he was talking like we had 2 more weekends left before we leave. You should have seen the look on his face when I reminded him we leave NEXT Sunday !!! It's getting so close!

I'm sure you will have to, Terri. You are staying at two different resorts. I'm staying at POR the whole time.....I think I'm going to NOT do the online check in just because I will ask if I can stay in the same room the whole time, rather than have to move after our first night.

Does anyone have any experience with early ticket pickup? Since my package doesn't start until the next day I will need to pick up our park tickets so we can attend DHS that night for late EMH. I know you do that at any Guest Services stand.....any idea where that is at DHS? I don't want to waste any time once we're there!

Awesome. Thanks, Gretchen. I read somewhere that it's possible for them to be able to do that at the resort but not necessarily......so I'll try that first but will expect to have to do the early ticket pick up at a park or DTD.

Is everyone asleep in a food coma? Tryptophan overdose?

way too much food today!
I'm doing some online shopping - some of the sales have already started. I'm debating going out tomorrow. There's one item for DD that I want and it's not available online. But I'd need to go to the mall

I'm still sitting around the table at the DBF's parents.

We'll head home soon, I hope. I'm sleepy and the conversation is quite boring. Besides it's in a different language that I don't speak.

I hope everyone had a great day!!

We had our reservations linked last year so we could stay in the same villa... It was a fairly painless process.

We are back. Had a nice dinner at SIL's parents' house, spent lots of quality time with my cute niece today. Tomorrow I convinced my hubby to go to Potomac Mills. I've been wanting to go to Ikea, and they also have a Disney Outlet. I'm hoping if we get there by 10:30am, most of the hardcore shoppers will have finished up and gone to bed!

I want to go to IKEA in Boston on Sunday to get felt food and things for the kitchen I'm getting the girls for Xmas- they are having a 50% off soft toy sale so I think I might wait- would hate to drive all the way there and it be out of stock... Thinking the weekend after vacation instead!
