MKY...YES is Youth Education Series. So you need someone under 18 in your party to take the class. DD14 LOVED the class but in addition we all got discounted tickets. Total was $944 for 5, 4 day park hoppers with water park and more option. We got 8 days worth of tickets. We were so busy on our 10 day trip. But I will admit that I like our basic ticket better. We relax and don't feel pressure to "Get our moneys worth". Hit a park, stay till we are done. With the hopper I wanted to go someplace in the morning and switch in the afternoon.

Don't feel cheated! And the discount is almost gone now...so sad.

TP2, Nice. Thanks for the explanation. That was a great idea / discount. We will probably feel pressure to do more in april and June this year since we are not going for so long. Don't want to leave the "boys" for too long. They are so much work, its a lot on Dad while we will be gone.
So we choose to go 3 times instread of twice and cut down the days, we are gone at any time.

It is awesome you have 3 trips planned mky!!

MNSSHP for us is on hold...they keep changing the days DS has off this fall too...glad I didn't plan anything. It's so pricey for really just one or two full days in the parks. Just cannot see spending the cash on airfare. Maybe if something CHEAP comes alongsomething to watch for I guess.
Besides they called so many off with the rain last fall.

Hiya everyone,

It really is not that "many trips" We are actually going for less days this year. Really excited for april. We have been in april before > but, touringuides are predicting a slower season. Than our usual time in March when it is usually nuts.

RHMH, good luck with your ADR's. Since the wdw "upgrade" it was very hard to do it online. I hope it is working better for you now. I gave up and called.

Yes, Tomar sometimes it even takes 2 balloons.

Wow, it was in the 50's fri and sat here. Today cold, with freezing rain. My car is shinning now with its ice coating.

Hope you all had a great weekend. We are watching the "fashion" at the golden globe awards.

Have a great week, mky

Easter is early this year so the spring breaks are in March I would think.

I've never been at a slow time. I guess I can look forward to that in retirement!

COLD here too. Not liking it either.

Hiya everyone,

RHMH, That sounds really nice. Especially fans of t-rex & sci fi. They are both "fun". Sounds exciting.

Had a VERY exciting "disney" email today. You guys probably all got it to. Was from the passholder world. About extra pixie dust all year. Well none during my april trip. But, that is ok cause we where feeling really left out, in june/july thinking we are going home on 7/3 and missing the special 4th's fireworks. But, it is going to run ALL WEEK! WooHoo! So we will actually see them twice on the 1st and 2nd. We have never been on the 4th so we are especially excited.

Well winter has definately hit here today. Snowed 1 inch in 1 hr, this am & its 8 degrees out > all day.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Happy Planning, mky

Sounds like great trips coming up

mky: those fireworks are AWESOME!!! I would do some research on where to be for them, but for those and for NYE we were up by the flagpole otherwise I don't think you can see the 360 effect. NYE at DHS they were 360 toogoing off the roof tops at DHS...very cool and outside the gate.

Hi Everyone !
Well...we are in a Deep freeze here in NJ this week, O M G...Its like the Frozen Tundra around here ....too cold for my blood !!

RHMH- Your vacay sounds wonderful ....hope that you and DD have the BESTEST time EVER !!

MKY- We were at Disney Once for the 4th...and the Fireworks at DHS were soooooo amazing , I will never forget it !!...First of all ,it was such a Pleasant suprise to see a fireworks show over Hollywood Blvd. which never happens, and the way they did the 4th , was sooooo spectacular, Believe it or not, we were at the MK on the 3rd, but honestly, if yu ask me, the show at the Studios was the one I will forever remember !!!

EE22-Hang in there , and lets try to ...."Think Spring" !!!

Happy Planning everyone !!!!

ooh, what to do?????

I know, the fireworks will be amazing. But, now I am facing the dilemma of: do I change our garden wing room at CR to the MKV tower???
I was trying to save the tower for oct, but maybe if something came out AP rate? or whatever and wasn't too outrageous > we could get the view for the fireworks.

OMG, trying to figure if I pick up overtime at work > is it worth it???
I had originally planned the garden wing for april as a tryout to see if I would be content. We have stayed there in the garden before > but you really get spoiled up in the tower. I keep telling myself > "you won't have to worry about elevators" So far that's not much of a selling point.

Well, hope this is my biggest dilemma of 2013.

mky

Hmmmmm,

We have never eaten dinner at the wave. The menu is not that appealing to us. We have had breakfast there, they really push the buffet > but we usually order what we want.
It reminds me of a nice hotels resturant. Nothing special???? It is ok.
Now, the bar issssssssssssss special. Really "hip" kinda feeling to it. We had a drink there it was sooooooooooo strong bug and I almost fell off our bar stools.
We miss the contempary's steak house. That was a must do every trip.

--as a side note at the wave breakfast last trip > we saw 3 tables robbing the "breakfast buffet" to stock there pantries. OMG They where filling up napsacks, and purses with donuts, rolls, fruit, you name it.
--Then the table next to us mom and 3 kids > 2 got the buffet and all 4 ate it.

It seriously needed to be watched. But, was rather entertaining.

mky
