Me either...we'll see if they really look like that Since they have queen beds now, I think we'll be fine. While we loved FW cabins, the bed almost did DH in. And yes!!! Do get a peek in one and let me know...I'm so curious



Kook....where's your ticker You always have a trip planned!

Thanks...I'm a big planner, so this is a little out of my comfort zone. We'll see how it goes. Faith doesn't know that we booked that room...hope she loves it.

If he doesn't go, we can stay somewhere that only sleeps 4 (WL maybe?) or I could take both grandmas and possibly stay at AoA

That is awesome! So excited for you!
A few days at WDW????....why not???!! Go for it! And WL is a good choice The 5 of us are going to squeez ourselves into POR for a weekend....hopefully we won't kill each other Jesse likes to sleep in a sleeping bag, so I'll throw one of those in the truck before we leave

Glad she's feeling better and got your computer issue fixed

It's it super hot when our hubby's say/do stuff like that? Last year, I found my DH in our locked bedroom, laying in bed, with a laptop on his tummy, ear buds, in his ears......pricing WDW trips. Then he said that we had to move our trip up b/c he couldn't pass up on the good room only deals. It was the hottest thing I have ever seen him do and hottest thing he has ever said to me.
This is true! While my hubby loves the World, he usually doesn't initiate such conversations...not sure what's gotten into him She does know that we are going for her bday, but doesn't know which resort....a very last minute trip. She doesn't realize that these Royal Princess rooms exist, so hopefully she'll be a little surprised. We're going to have a bday gift waiting on her in the room.

Hello ladies! I am on the phone applying all the Dis GC’s I got at Target to my Feb resie. I really didn’t want to have to sit and have them scan all of them at check in so I am taking the time now to key them all in, LOL! We are definitely staying put for our dates now that the AP discounts have changed and our exact reservation is almost $500 more

Jeanette – I guess I read your dates wrong, I thought you were going to be at Anna Maria the week after the 4th of July. Our reservation is July 6th-13th. That stinks

Mommyrosa2 - I totally forgot about CSR business class, maybe I will check it out for our April trip, although I don't know if DD will give up her Royal Room

Linda – LOL about retirement leaving you too much time on the computer to play, I feel the same way being a stay at home mom, especially when the kids are in school

Padawans – Oh a pet friendly room at, how exciting! Congrats on the rescue puppy!

Wookie – LMAO about DH and his hotness planning a Dis trip!!!! And OH MY what a scary morning, I think I need to by kidnapped by my bed too

Candace – YAY for PIF

Heather – we also have a royal room booked for DD’s bday, since CR was way too much she “settled” for a RR, LOL! I think they are really cute rooms! Now that your jaw is off the ground I hope you got the ADR’s you set out for.

Jen – OH NO, poor DD, and poor mama!! How scary!

KOOK – I love the Mickey and Orange Bird

Hope everyone else is having a great day!!!

Melissa

Jaw is off the ground, but still not in place Of course, I had to swear that I would make no upgrades and haven't.....yet. I did make one ADR for Tony's Town Square. Not really sure where Bill wants to eat, so I'll finish tonight...hopefully.

I think mine just tolerates it because he knows I love it so much. This next trip will be the last one we have for a while to WDW. There are too many other places we want to go with the boys before they leave home. Next the DH would love to do a train trip out to LA. We would see the tar pits, the walk of fame, go to Universal. Then rent a car to drive up to Redding. The DH lived there for a while and wants to show it to the boys. Then see Mt. Shasta and the Redwood Forest. The kicker is he wants to take me all the way to CA and not let me go to DL.

I'm sure she will love it!! I wanted to stay in one for our last trip. When I showed the pictures to the DSs, they said it was "too girly".

I will keep my fingers crossed that one day soon, you are kidnapped in the same way.

I got back at her by putting her old Winnie the Pooh flannel sheets on her bed yesterday. I thought she'd protest, but so far, she hasn't said anything

I thought last Spring Break (our first) would be terrible, but it wasn't at all. We did a BWI/CL and WL/CL split and the lounges weren't crowded. Wait times were longer, but we got FPs and have been many times so we didn't stress over skipping something with a long line. Room prices are higher, so maybe that also keeps people away? The weather was perfect - no rain, not too warm, (it was the end of March, beginning of April).


Three options: right click on your mouse and choose "copy image address" then paste it into your signature. Or you can drag it onto your desktop and then upload to your own photo sharing site like Photobucket.

Or you can just add [IMG] to the beginning and [/IMG] to the end of this address, copy it (right click or highlight to copy) then paste it right into your sig. I think even Linda can do this

If I can do it you can do it Linda! I am about as computer savvy as a child. Wait a minute....children are very computer savvy.

Anyhow...you will get it!

Yeah for saving, but stop tweaking your trip and start copying and pasting! If you can post that snazzy ticker, you can post an image... Go Linda, Go Linda! There better be an OB in your sig. by the time I'm done cooking dinner

Good evening RCers! Looks like we've been a busy, changin' bunch!

Jen-Woo-hoo for the great discount! The photo of your girls was too cute!
I hope your dd is feeling much better. It's no fun when a little one is under the weather.

MM-I promise, I'm trying to keep up with the changes. I think you're back to YC? Good choice! I love that place.

Janet, GG, Pas-Milkshakes at Gasparilla's, what a nice way to remember our Sarah. She touched our hearts, and she will be missed.

Missout, I loved seeing Miss M's tribute to Sarah. Such a sweet smile!

Wookie, Great idea, Dole whip floats!

Lacey-A trip over spring break, and celebrate a birthday sounds like a fine idea.

Heather-Congrats on your booking!

Padawans
-Loved the puppy update!

Kook-Mickey and Orange Bird, perfect! Thank you so much! I'll get busy and add it to my collection. No tickers till I have all the bills paid, so something happy like this is so welcome!

Melissa-great idea to call and get those gift cards applied. More park time, less check in fuss.

Thanks RCers, I so appreciate your friendship. I love reading about what's new, sharing ideas, and of course, hearing about the latest resort changes.

Hi friends! Sorry I've been less active lately, just very hectic with the holidays and all my running around -- today was my interview, so now it's just a waiting game and I should know in a couple weeks whether I was successful or not. I am a tad scared, hoping I didn't bite off more than I can chew! Well we will see what the decision is soon.

My DS 16 has said he'd like me to take him and his BFF to Disneyland next yr (perhaps in FEB) -- if I get the job it may be something I think about -- however it would be a shorter trip/ probably 4 days in DL and a tour to Universal Studios California. I've heard that a DL trip could be as expensive as a 9 day WDW trip! That's scary and would be a deal breaker as I want to go to WDW again in Jan 2015--- so this DL trip would have to be cheaper than I am used to -- hopefully under $5K
I don't know how important on site is at DL -- maybe Linda can jump in and let me know her thoughts/ recommendations?? I'm loving the Disneyland hotel, but my pocket book may not love it in the end! Any off site hotel recommendations if on site is not necessary?? If I get my FT job, it may be something
I begin to think more seriously about! I haven't been to DL since 1990!!!! Linda, if I do come, I am going to need a ride buddy with my son having his BFF to sit with!
Marie
PS..... Candace, I see your not WL CL anymore! Back to YC?? I hope you are all happy with that new change yeah for PIF!!!

For the DL Diva trip I'm staying at the Hilton. Walking distance to the parks, etc or a short distance to the Toy Story parking lot to catch a shuttle. We usually walk to the park but take the shuttle back in the evening. I just got a great deal there. Give me notice and I can pop down there for a couple of days or so. End of February might be the Diva trip again.

kook aren't you done cooking dinner yet???? As you can see I gave up on the orange bird. I really need to remove that stupid gray box ... people on other threads are going to think I've lost it!
