Ok ladies, the DVC idea is out. It's just too much money right now so maybe next year. Now I've decided I want a new adventure. So, we are thinking about trying a Disney Cruise, believe it or not my husband is the one who mentioned this! The only problem is, I already paid the $200 deposit and had insurance so I would only get $48.10 back ($151.90 was the cost of insurance) since it's been over 14 days since I booked the trip. Has anyone else had this issue before? I called DCL to see if the insurance could be transferred and they said it couldn't because they are under a different insurance plan. So now, I'm stuck with deciding if I just stick with the WDW vacation or lose $151.90.

Also, can anyone else recommend any good cruise lines, other than DCL and not Carnival (my husband went on Carnival a few years ago and was not impressed)?

I'm going to give it a few days to make an actual decision but I am really leaning towards going on a cruise, I've never been on one and the idea of cruising down to the Caribbean would be a new adventure and sounds wonderful!

Oh sad about not doing DVC right now....but yay for DH's that want to do a cruise!! so let me get this straight, you paid the $200 for your deposit for your WDW trip, which you would get back, but the vacation insurance is non refundable? That seems like an oxymoron or something along those lines.

Bummer, I vote do both!!

I'm listening to the fil talk to the DH about the training, and he does not want me going b/c I "don't work for the company". I don't want to go anymore. He expects whoever goes to focus on appliances only from 7 AM to 10 PM.

'Morning Ladies,
My net is back. Yea! I can read from my phone (and post a little, but my skills aren't that great with longer posts) but I much prefer the laptop to keep up.

Today's wacky weather--flood watch, fog advisory, lake effect snow advisory starting this eve for 6-12 inches of snow from tonight thru Fri. In the meantime, it's 50 degrees out there.

MM-Two vacations, lucky you!

LuvLuvLuv-Hooray for a mini-stay. Hope you had a wonderful time!

Jenny-About strep...Our son went through a really bad phase with it. I'd take him in, get the meds, think he was OK, and overnight he'd develop the fever and rash and be right back with it. We finally got through it, but it was worrisome. He's also the one who had bad ear problems. When he was about 16 months old, he still wasn't talking. They figured out he wasn't hearing, popped in the tubes, and he his speech delays disappeared, thank heaven. Kids, they can worry ya.
Hope your dd is much better soon!!!

sjs314, Wookie, DznyCrzy11-I agree with you guys, Disney's computer system is pretty nuts. I have old addresses pop up occasionally too. That house number stuff, pronouncing your name, both are annoying....Just connect me already. Who advises them on this stuff?? It just over complicates things.

Lacey, Annual passes would be Disney heaven! Someday.

Marie, I'm late to your birthday party. Hope you had a lovely day!!

Padawans-I enjoyed reading about Universal. So many parks, so little time...

Janet and Melissa, Lovely photo! Glad you had a nice chat!!

Waving hi to the RC friends, have a great day!

...Now I'm off to the store to get my errands done before the snow starts. How long till spring????

That's ok. Yes, you are correct. At first I was being told the full $200 would be put back in my acct and then she said "wait a minute, you purchased the travel ins which was $151.90 and since it's been over 14 days since your reservation was made, instead of getting the full $200 back, they keep $151.90 of that $200". I was disappointed to hear that!! She did say you can file a claim with the insurance and try to get the $151.90 back. My guess is, if you add ins to your reservation, after the 14th day they purchase the policy, that's why you wouldn't get that portion back.

Yeah, but if you paid your own way he would have no say!!
That's disappointing though. How can he expect his employees to go somewhere on a conference and not have any time to themselves??

He claims that is what the conference people want. They do have mandatory receptions and such at night, but it doesn't say you have to stay the entire time. He says the only discount Disney tickets they offer are for before and after. Ummm, no I looked and they are offering the after 2 PM and after 4 PM tickets. My fil isn't exactly reasonable when it comes to working for him. When I worked for him before, doing his scheduling, he expected me to answer the phone from 7 AM to 7 PM Monday - Thursday, 7 AM to 5 PM on Friday (b/c I left the phone with him on the weekend) and then I only made $110 per week.

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's great! Sounds like a nice vacation for you and the pup. Great prices

No cruise info here...sorry about DVC..we owned in SSR 2003-2008. Unfortunately when we bought we were a family of 4...so we couldn't even go yearly...when I looked into buying points so it's cheaper to go with a discount now...we did sell our points and get a trip out of it from the profit

Bree asked this morning if she could touch the fog...so cute

morning everyone..
Every day I look to see if there is any AP discount out yet....we are booked for All Star Movies...BUT hubby said if the AP discount is any good for French Quarter then we COULD go there...Port Orleans was our very first resort when we celebrated (a little late) 25th and a half wedding anniversary..now this year is our 46th...we have gone every year...sometimes MORE...we do love this place and new things come up every year...

Our favorite resort is FQ, then Movies. Riverside aka Dixie landings was third...POP is out in left field. We did go to the Dolphin maybe 4 times ..but going thru the gorgeous lobby in our flip flops and bathing suit ...while a man played the piano in a fancy suit...we felt out of place..(although it was an awesome resort) .so we will stick with the other options..

sent an email to Florida Town car and asked if we were able to fit four suitcases, and four carry on's as well as four adults in the town car..or should we look into the van instead....we may not do Magical express...we do love the town car service...decisions decisions...

todays weather is FROGGY out...cant see down the hill even...May can not come soon enough...

have a good day everyone
