Now, I am totally reconfiguring our touring plan so that we can fit in golf for the guys, etc....
But, they are far from Disney obsessed, so basically just told us to "show them a good time"

This oughta be interesting!!!
How exciting!! Who knows, they may be Disney obsesses after this trip.

Hmmm...not liking the sounds of injections!! But whatever helps I suppose. That would not go over well, my DD8 is not the 'toughest' one out of my three.

We were all swabbed again, but she said it only looks like DD8 is having another episode of it. I am not a fan of the antibiotics either. We have been doing so well, and had a long stretch without any. I picked up some kids probiotics for her to take at the same time. Thanks for caring.

Thank you Shelia...

Wow this is big news! It will be a whole different trip for you guys now...how fun to have friends along! I am sure you will love planning everything to show them. Have fun!
I hope this one works and she is better soon.

I know, righty? Who knew actually taking the meds the doctor says I need would actually make me better.

I know I need to, but I tend to put myself last on my own to-do list.

Either he is a pod person, or my DH is a closet Disney World lover. I told him about the discount park tickets for convention people and he's interested in getting them. He is already planning what parks we could go to and what rides we would make sure to ride.

Anyone know about how much they cost? I think you can't use them until after 5, but he'll (or we'll) be in training all day anyway.

Sounds promising!

Here's a link about convention tickets. DH was supposed to go to a convention in Feb that we were going to tag along for. I wish that hadn't fallen through.

Thanks!! Your post got him even more excited about the possibility of going. I'm going to talk to the mil tonight and tell her if I go, I'll not take any classes first session. Just in case they want me to take notes.

We have 6 meals planned but two of them are after they leave, so it shouldn't be too bad.

I just have to fit golf in, but we have several "open" mornings already, so I just need to pick one of those.
Yay! Sounds fun!

Mousemommy - I hope things go well with the friends coming along. That sounds fun!

I got a mailer yesterday for Annual Passholders. I can't stop staring at all the special events I'd love to try. I wish we lived closer.

I'm not feeling YC CL today. I think I need to call and see if Poly CL is available.
Someday, I will have an annual pass!!! :-)

Yes, I am on the reservation line now, on hold of course, and when I went through the automated system it had the address I lived at over 10 years ago!!!

I got a pin in November it was my address that I moved from in 1988, I've been on numerous trips, dvc member etc.... How how the heck ? And I have got pins to my email address with my friends last name who travelled with us and they wouldn't honor the pins.

BL Be careful what you wish for. The AP's are addictive and costly.

Wookie I hope you get to go.

MM Sounds like fun. I hope it's fun and no drama.


My doggy drama is finally over. One thing I really disliked about WDW pet center is that the never answer the phone. You have to leave a message and they call you back. It's usually 2-5 hours before they call you back. I called them today to add on a couple of nights. After 2 hours of no call back I decided to do what other people do when they want better accommodations at a cheaper price. They look offsite. Not for us of course, but for the dog. I found a beautiful ranch style pet spa in Kissimmee call Bass Pet Resort. It has much better reviews than the Disney one. After checking out the online photos I called, and someone actually answered the phone. I spent 15 minutes talking to the employee about the place and had a great feeling about it. I was able to book the VIP suite package which included a 40 sq ft suite with a toddler bed, TV and a private 40sq foot outdoor patio. He also gets 3 play sessions with other dogs, 3 walks, bedtime story, cuddle time and doggie treat. All for 42.00 a night. The same thing at the Disney one would have been 70.00 a night. I was very happy with this. He loves playing with other dogs. We go to the dog park everyday so this should be fun for him. I am really happy I found a nice affordable place to board him when we go to Orlando.

At the dog park today I was talking to some of the other pet owners. They are also not impressed with the kennels in our area. I was glad to know it wasn't just me. I didn't think I was really that fussy.

The best part is I got to upgrade to RPR club.2 239.00 a night. 500.00 for 3 day tickets for the 4 of us. Universal is such a great value.

That is SO weird. I get Disney mail to my grandmother's house. She lives 2 houses away. Why can't they just get the house number right?!

jenny Don't you just hate when they're sick? DS had recurring ear infections as a baby. Apparently they look for that in ASD kids, which I found very interesting.



Work was a NIGHTMARE today. I was tired to begin with and right now I can barely keep my eyes open. Of course Lily has no interest in sleeping.

Glad you got the dog situation handled. Sounds great! Wow! Universal sounds like an excellent value! I will have to convince the fam to try the dark side one day.

You've got a late night party girl too, huh? Mine doesn't seem to want to sleep before 10-10:30 lately. Luckily she usually sleeps in and takes super long naps though.

Your boys would love Universal. My boys choose it over Disney. The Spiderman 3D ride is the best ride I have ever been on. I can't wait to go to the one in Hollywood to ride the Transformers 3D. It's a much different pace then Disney. You will get front of the line passes to every ride. No need to make ADR's, but lots of good restaurants within walking distance. No busses you can walk everywhere. The resorts and pools are as good as or better than Disney. Club level is great. You can't beat the value. The only negative thing I can say about it is that it's only a 4 night 3 day trip. I can't fly to Orlando for 4 nights so it's always a add on to Disney, therefore it does make my Disney trips more expensive.
