We changed our room only rez to the Stay/Play/Dine package and are staying in our Royal Rooms!!!!

I really thought we would have to give those up since they weren't avail on the website! But the CM managed to sprinkle pixie dust our way and we are now in a Garden View RGR.

Don't want to share details here - but it has been a rather difficult time since our little one arrived so this is AWESOME!!!
YAY!! Big hugs! Take LOTS of pictures of your room/view/etc... We don't stay in our Royal Room until June, and I need pics to help pass the time Ha!

Oh, and to all those northerners posting about the 60 degree pool weather....
I live in SC (although I was born and raised in PA, so I know COLD.) If you're going anytime soon I just want to forewarn you that we've had a cold front come through this past few days. Last week at this time it was 80 degrees. Today, it was 60 and dropping. I just don't want you to get your hopes up too high We LIVE in flip flops year round, and today was bordering on being too cold for that. Granted, FL is usually a little warmer than us, but I just wanted to let you know

We actually used to bring a few tins of Heinz Baked Beans with us when my DD was younger, and a much fussier eater. Beans'n'chips (translation: "baked beans with a side of fries") was her favourite meal.

There is currently a Groupon for the Characters in Flight Balloon ride in Downtown Disney. $20 for two people-it's normally $18 per person so it's a good deal. saw it on the all ears newsletter. You can only get it tonight and it expires on May 31st.....for anyone going between now and then since Downtown Disney is somewhat nearby with the boat and all from Riverside!

Praying lots over here for warm weather when we get there. Sunshine is good for the soul

If not, I think the full DVD set of Coronation Street would seal the deal.

(Andre, my grandmother is from England - came over as a war bride and my dad was born there. I spent many evenings with her watching Coronation Street. LOL)

And of course marmite. Always started the day with dad having his marmite on toast.

I didnt see any on our last trip to home depot. Will have to check again. I have been trying to avoid going out "in public" the last while just so no one gets any of those nasty colds/flu or tummy bugs that are going around LOL. I like our little bubble right now.

Jeans + hoodie may as well be summer!! It is so cold here that the vehicles are having trouble getting started & the doors on my van were frozen shut. Could not open them.

C'mon sunshine!!!

if you click on the "buy" it will allow you to choose one ride for one person at $11 or 2 people for $20!

I tried to get my family to buy the Characters in Flight Groupon and the kids flatly refused. Apparently they are afraid of heights. That was news to me
Oh well!
