I hate to be a burden to my family but I also don't want to make myself feel worse. Maybe a few grey goose slushies and I won't notice the pain!
Grey goose slushies will definitely help I saw the x-ray on Twitter...how the heck did you do that????

Walking full speed through a dark hotel room that happened to have a table in my way!!! As soon as I hit it I knew it was broken. It made a horrible snap!!


Does anyone else have to deal with friends and/or family members who are anti-WDW? I swear I don't even tell people anymore when we are about to go because I don't want to hear them start in "OOoohhhh you're going back again already?????? Weren't you just there like last week??? HA HA!" Oh yes you are so funny and original I've never heard that joke before. Don't rain on my parade people!!!!!

Now back to packing

Yes! And to tell you the truth, I have so much fun pretending that I don't realize they are trying to be funny/sarcastic.

I hear the same line, "Oh you're going back again? Weren't you just there?" My response "I KNOW! Isn't it great!? I hate to wait too long between trips. I'm so lucky the whole family is into it as much as I am!!!"

Or something along those lines if they make some other snide remark.

That usually sends them away murmuring to themselves and shaking their head.

So now I'm trying to figure out if I'm going to try to walk, get a wheelchair, a scooter, or what??? The pain is a little better today... I'm walking on a cane and getting around OK. Luckily I've got 3 days to pack so I'm taking it slow. Anyone have any advice or information about renting wheelchairs??? Also, do I qualify for boarding the plane early? Not that I'm trying to take advantage but it would be nice to get seated up front where I have more room for my stylish velcro boot! So much for the pedicure I was supposed to get tomorrow.
IF it was me, I would rent the scooter. Why? because it will keep your foot off the ground and out of the way of being bumped or stepped on by others! And yes, you should be able to preboard - you do have impaired mobility and if anyone ever needed a front seat it's you - so you can keep your foot elevated. Trust the old lady on this one.

Hi Erika, I was there last year with a broken foot... stayed at the BWI. I did not rent a scooter just kind of hung around the hotel and downtown disney and went to a Yankee spring training game. Just so you know if you do need to rent a scooter there is a place on the boardwalk that rents them if you feel you need one when you get there. I was in a boot so I didn't worry about being stepped on at all it's pretty protective. As for the boarding early call the airline and let them know you need a little more room and they might place you in front. Also when you get to the airport take the wheelchair it helps get you priority. Have fun and good luck!!

The trip ended up being not too terrible. LOL I did rent a wheelchair and used it for about 3 days before finally having all I could take of being pushed around. My kids loved pushing me at first, they practically fought each other over taking turns, then once the fun wore off it became a nightmare. Nobody wanted to push me, so they'd either go way too fast or too slow. I was in a panic the whole time they were going to ram my foot into something. Finally I decided to cut my bandages off a few days early and just walk on my own. It was painful, but better than being pushed. Don't ask me about all the "FUN" I had when DH and the kids decided it would be cool to let me free-fall down the ramp to the Jungle Cruise!!! I literally screamed like a person being stabbed. LOL

It was kind of lame this time because pretty much all my time down was spent writhing in pain.

I need to have a pity party!!!!!! We had to cancel our March trip and reschedule for May. DH has a conference out east he needs to attend and we just couldn't make it work. Of course it being Easter week was insane already, room rates were so high, and I'm a spoiled baby when it comes to the deluxe resorts, so we made the executive decision to just do May instead. The kids last day of school is May 24th so we will go that following week. It hits memorial weekend but at least I can get decent AP rates. In fact a room at the YC in May was LESS than what we were paging for CSR in March!!! Crazy

So now I have 3 months to wait but I will have lots of planning to keep me busy. Not to mention getting DS ready for high school!!! Which seems totally impossible to believe.

Hope everyone is well and let's hope this miserable winter ends soon!!!!!!

Hi Erica!
Just finished your January report and loved it!
I so agree with you about the unfortunate habit of other guests to be unkind in the concierge lounge. It seems that if people would just think how they would feel if they were the one waiting for a seat, it sure would be nice. I used to be a deluxe cl girl too, but I just started to feel ripped off and the chaos in the lounges really began to rub it in!
I also am so Disney obsessed like you and trying hard to stay that way, but I have experienced more and more situations similar to what you described at BLT. That would have been unheard of just a few years ago!

I hope you have a great May trip!!!!,

CL has definitely lost some of its appeal. But there are still benefits. I love rolling out of bed and being steps away from breakfast, even if I don't have a seat. Plus my boys snack and drink enough to justify most of the cost. I swear they are always thirsty and hungry!!! However, to make it work I HAVE to have a good discount , there's no way I'd fork over rack rate. Poly CL was $900 a night spring break and $620 a night even in May. Totally insane for seven nights. I'm not spending $10,000 to go to wdw.

So I'm starting to think about 2015, and I want to stay onsite for a few nights

I liked AKV, but not all the walking to the lobby, and I didn't like not having a food court right there.

We probably need a 1 bedroom or two rooms at a value. Mum wants to rent points again, but I think two value rooms will be cheaper anyway.
