Yes, our actual dates are included! Nov 17 - 21 is when we will be at WDW, and the BB dates are Nov 17 - 23. I will be keeping my fingers crossed.

Candace, we love the whole PT 50s vibe!! (and food). I so hope you get a good waiter/waitress that is into the whole experience. My DD got cited for elbows on the table and had to stand with her nose against the wall while everyone in the room "shame on you" And she knocked over her water on another trip, had to clean it up (he did help a little ) and was given a child's cup the rest of the meal. She loved it!

Plus when Magic, Linda and I ate there last month, Magic was a tattletale and had to wear a hat that said "I am a brat!": ... and I had problems minding my manners with my elbows on the table! Just like my Sam!

Candace, we had dinner there last August and we were pleasantly surprised how much we liked the food (although I'm told the menu used to be mostly ethnic and that has changed). And I agree with Pas, the Princess interaction was fabulous!

Because of being a mod, I usually never ever ever say when I am going to Disney... sometimes there are the mod haters....HONEST...

we have done our homework and looked at All the Music info we can handle..we usually like the room for sleeping and changing into our bathing suits to go to the pool...

Our favorite restaurant that we have been to ....was...drum roll please...tutto italia...hubby and I both had the NY strip steak and it melted in our mouths...The service was excellent ...we had starters, main food, and dessert...and we had three different people attending to us...it was weird but very very nice..

I "DID" like Le Cellier when we had the long bread sticks, and our selections were always good...soup or salad, prime rib, and Mousse...YUMMY..

Our worse experience for food was in Morocco, I had the grouper and my husband had chicken brochettes, and we had to go to American Pavillion after to get some burgers to fill in the gap that we didnt get at the restaurant...I dont want to be pigged out but I would like to know we got ate enough to be satisfied.

guess I should go and eat some of the leftovers from last nights SB party...I had wayyyyyyy to much food..

I showed JM pictures of AoA and he really liked it. I had assumed he would like the FN suites better because of the color scheme and I was right. He's already claimed the pull out couch as his. He is willing to allow his brother to sleep on it with him, "if there is room". My major selling point with him, was that he father and I would be in a separate room with a door we would shut, so they wouldn't have to listen to their father's snoring.

How was the dessert party? I have thought about adding that maybe to our September trip.

We didn't have a lot of people over. The DS were in there room playing XBOX, and that left me, the DH and the fil watching the game. The mil was working on the computer in the office.

I love the food porn thread!! It makes me hungry, but doesn't make me want to eat since nothing we have here is as yummy as the stuff in the pictures, if that makes sense. Your right, it does help decide what you want to eat.

We ate at Morocco on our last trip, because the DH insisted. He wanted to see the belly dancing. I swapped out our Teppan Edo for it. Our server suggested getting the feasts. This way, we could share and have a wide variety of everything. We really didn't care for the appetizers. The DH and I both liked the lamb and couscous. Everyone like the chicken, and we didn't like anything else. I was still pretty full from lunch, so even with the little I ate, I didn't want dessert. Out of all of our meals, we were on the DlxDDP, that was the one we left the most food on our plates.

That reminds me, I have left overs from this weekend I need to eat.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. We did. Saturday I got the taxes done. When I took DH back to H&R Block to sign them he took us all out to eat at one of my favorite restaurants. It's called Babe's chicken. The only app they have is salad with their house dressing. Well it's less like salad and more like just chopped up iceberg lettuce with their sweet house dressing. When they bring you your salad (with super cold bowls) you get homemade biscuits. The tables have butter, honey, and syrup for the biscuits. At that location the only meat option is chicken fried steak and fried chicken (each person gets a leg, wing, thigh, and breast). Then the only side options are creamed corn (so good and the only kind I will eat), mashed potatoes, and cream gravy. The sides are all you can eat, you just can't take them home if you don't finish them. I have a breast and thigh left. I always just eat the leg and wing while we're there because the breast and thigh heat up better. On Sunday, we saw Warm Bodies at our favorite dine in theater. mmmmm fried pickles!! Then the DH made hamburgers while we watched the first part of the Super Bowl. I don't know what he put in them, but they were the best burgers ever!!

ugh!! I am having a RC dilemma!! When I did my pricing, and I priced upgrading from what I thought you get free from FD to the DlxDDP, I did it based on you getting the basic package. If you stay at a value, don't you get the QSDDP with FD? If that is true, then my numbers are off. Based on getting the basic DDP with FD and then upgrading to the DlxDDP the AoA suites would cost $2,928.08 and the WL with a woods view would be $3,166.58 a courtyard view $3,248.68. That is only a difference of $238.5 for the woods view and $320.60 for the courtyard view. However there is going to be a bigger price difference from the QSDDP to the DlxDDP than from the basic DDP to the DlxDDP. Which means the difference between the two will be even less. There is where the issue lies. Do I spend just a tiny bit more money and get to stay at a resort I adore, or do I stay at the AoA and have more room?

I asked hubs yesterday if he would be disappointed if we went to "Maybe say, Disney, for your 40th and we didn't stay at either the YC or BC..." to which he replied "no". I'm thinking, depending on the number of nights, the garden wing sounds like a strong contender.

I tried to downplay it all. I know, I should be proud of the fact that we can do this, but it is hard when people are giving you their silent disapproval.

OH WELL!! We are excited!
And, obviously, we're excited for you.

It's gotten to be the same way with my family and hub's, too. Last trip, we didn't tell anyone... going to be the same with the next one, too, I think. Just not worth the bother of having to explain or lessen our excitement for their sake. That's why I love you guys! We all just "get it"...

Candace: I hit "quote" on yours but it's vanished! I was going to ask what you didn't like about Akershus but then you replied about it. (I had a momentary lapse of sanity and almost booked CRT for our last trip then I took a second to think about it and ... Miss M just isn't into princesses at all. I dunno. I'm going to have to get her to do the Pirates thing you did with your kiddos though; I know she'd get a kick outta that.) If you change your mind about wanting to go out for a breakfast, you can always do Captain's Grille right there at the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Loved the pics of the girls at Disney on Ice!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My main computer is borked so I'm playing "dork tech" today and removing bits from the motherboard to see where the problem is... <--- Maybe I should just spill some coffee inside so I can get a new one? Better yet, one of those Adult Dole Whips? Although I might electrocute myself whilst slurping it out of the PC innards.

LMAO!!!! Good thing I didn't have a drink in my mouth, I would have spit it everywhere as I had the visual of you with your mouth on the pc innards slurping out adult dole whips!!!!

One to play catch up with this chatty bunch

Padawans - glad your money is already back in your cc! I'll have the check the site again as everyone I click on make a payment the payment part doesn't work. As for the Poly prices, I am not surprised, my CR CL wasn't a while lot less this past December. It was a once in a lifetime splurge at those prices.

Candace - we didn't like the Akershus lunch at all either As Miss said the breakfast is really good at Captains Grille if you get tired of club food.

Janet - suitcases are out but only the toiletries are packed (those never get unpacked, lol). Tomorrow I will do laundry and pack! You are missing gorgeous weather, mid 70's and not a cloud in the sky!

Jen - your vacations are your business and so is what you do with your money! I know it's hard when you get "the looks" and "the comments" about your trips, but so what, you know it is all worth the looks on the girls faces when they arrive at Disney!!!!!

Wookie - I hate to say it, but I think AoA is a better choice for you. The WL rooms are SMALL and you will feel it with the boys! Plan a meal there or even just go relax in the lobby one day but I think you will be happier space wise at AoA.

Miss - glad to hear DH won't be crushed if you don't stay at YC or BC

Jeanette - wait where and when are you now???? LOL!!! I'm on the iPad so I can't see tickers!

Hello to everyone else!!!! Hope everyone is having a great day!!!

Melissa

It was the famous Labor Day discount...the early November discount isn't as amazing..but it's usually blacked out by discounts...the infamous Jersey week! But it still saves me $2000!!!!!!

Jenny - Glad your girls are getting healthy again! How exciting to be planning two trips at once. Maybe GF??? I think you'll be just fine booking a BB. Last year it was still there through June.

You say Magical Vacations has an agency exclusive for Thanksgiving? I may have to get a quote. I think I'm down to either going then or over Christmas break. The big thing for me is that we cannot do deluxe if it is one of those weeks. I refuse to pay rack holiday rates at a deluxe again.

I may still work on convincing DS9 that it's ok to miss a week of school. He is so stinking smart and has never had any sort of problem making up his work so...

Miss - I'm sorry things are tough with your mom. I hope you can figure out a way to monitor things without it driving you crazy.

So DH gave you the go to WDW in October? Great news!

babyberger - You must be getting so excited by now! I totally understand being happy about no dishes/cooking. It's what keeps me from ever booking an offsite condo. I feel like it won't be a vacation for me if I'm still cleaning and cooking.

Grumpy Grandma - Congrats on the new puppy!

DetTigsGal - Your DS finds out about the band today right? Best of luck to him!

Magic - Dole Whip with Spiced Rum. Oh how I wish I was doing F&G!!!!!

Mousemommy - Love the Disney on Ice pic! We had a bad time at Akershus too. The meatballs were easily the worst thing I have ever eaten in WDW. Great for princesses though.

sjs314 - Of course you are second guessing the Poly. If we ever knew what we wanted we would not have this amazing group of women. I'm thankful for my indecisiveness!

padawans - Glad you got your refund. That is also good news about paying online for a RO. I hate calling to make payments.

pumba - Great news getting an AP discount!

Janet - You crack me up about the Christmas tree.

Wookie - That is a dilemma. I'd tend to want to pick WL, but then I'm addicted to the deluxes. I love the way the AOA suites look, but every time I price it out it comes so close to deluxe and something in my head tells me that it's not ok to pay that much for a value. The extra space is a really good selling point though.

Ok girls, off to do some housework. My menfolk love to totally trash the house over the weekend and leave me and DD to fix it on Mondays. I need to start enforcing better habits around here.

Hello. My name is Heather. I have a can't make up my mind about where to stay problem. It's been 3 hours since the last time I looked up my options on the the WDW site. My problem started in 2011, when I started at ASSp, changed to POFQ and somehow ended up staying at BC CL.

This time, I am torn between my love of BC and my love of a $ well spent. My mind says BC or BCV but my wallet says not. I keep waffling back and forth between "screw it. let's go big" and "we can do x, y, z and not sweat the $$ if we stay somewhere more budget friendly". Add to it that we are thinking of bringing a set of Gparents to keep us company and help with our herd of little people.

We travel in Autumn 2013 and I have a feeling there's going to be a lot of resort rallying before we get on the plane.

Your braver than I am. I could never tear my own computer/laptop apart. I just make my DH do it for me. Unfortunately, he doesn't know laptops as well as he does desktops.

Hello to everyone else!!!! Hope everyone is having a great day!!!

I do like the extra room, especially two bathrooms.

This is my problem. I love it so much, I can justify not having the extra room. Plus there is the ability to take the boat, which my entire family loves.

The extra space is a really good selling point though.
That's my main issues. I love the extra room and bathroom of the AoA suites. JM liked the look of the pool and the FN suite. However, I love the WL. I love the lobby, the walk to the boat, the boat rides. Plus JM really wanted to have room service one morning for breakfast. True we could eat in our suite at AoA, but we would have to go and get it first. Plus, this will be our last trip to WDW for a while. I just keep hearing in my head "Do you really want to stay at a value for your last WDW trip for a while if you can afford the WL." This would be way easier if I could get the same amount of space at the WL for the AoA suite price.

I need to get some more done before I have to start dinner. I have my 2nd load of laundry in the dryer that I need to take out and put away. I did make time to count the Disney pig money, make a new spreadsheet for it, and take out the "pretty pennies" to put in tubes for pressed pennies.

This time, I am torn between my love of BC and my love of a $ well spent. My mind says BC or BCV but my wallet says not. I keep waffling back and forth between "screw it. let's go big" and "we can do x, y, z and not sweat the $$ if we stay somewhere more budget friendly". Add to it that we are thinking of bringing a set of Gparents to keep us company and help with our herd of little people.

We travel in Autumn 2013 and I have a feeling there's going to be a lot of resort rallying before we get on the plane.
I am so tempted to do a price check on the BC, but then I'm already confused enough picking between the suites at AoA and the WL. We are planning on spending a day at the resort enjoying the pool, so being able to play at SAB would be amazing. ugh!! Too many choices!!

I think I'm just going to step away from the laptop and take a super hot shower. I have a headache that I assumed was from high blood pressure, but it's not high (I'm actually taking the meds the doctor told me too). It was only 116/69.

thanks again for welcoming me to your great group of "changing" peeps...rofl..we decided to just spend money elsewhere when we dont spend that much time in the room..
Over 30 visits to the House of the Mouse and French Quarter is high on my list of loves...then Movies...then Dixie landings (now Riverside) and then Swan/Dolphin...and Pop ..I am sorry...but pop century was not up on my list of loves...once we stayed at Sports and was out in left field someplace...LITERALLY...I jsut remembered that one..
So we are changers too...
I think we are in the double digits now...I can love this ..ROFL..
Thanks again for the welcome feeling ..

BB and I heart You have to go to the old website. You can do this by clicking on the free maps in my Disney experience. The link will take you to the old site where you can pay online. I always pay off my reservation in one payment with same card. If you make payments and then cancel they will refund it exactly how you paid it. I learned this the hard way when I cancelled a reservation I had kept adding days too. I had 5 different refund amounts on two separate cards, and it took about 2 weeks to get all the money refunded. If you make twelve 500.00 payments. You will get twelve 500 dollar refunds. They will not refund it all at once. Just an FYI for those you that make payments.

Heather I think most of us struggle with the same thing. I really struggle with the CL vs non CL thing. My favorite trips have been the ones I have planned in 2 weeks because I just book what I can afford at the time. No agonizing that I'm overspending or worrying about saving more money. I hate planning this far in advance. I am constantly upgrading and downgrading depending on my mood, and what unexpected costs I incur from the initial reservation to the time we leave.

PAS I would need about 70% to stay at RPC. 1 night rack rate is more than my monthly mortgage payment.

CR sounds like fun. Like yourself I am so glad I have converted from Poly to the Epcot resorts. The discounts used to be the same across the board. Now the Epcot resorts are the most heavily discounted. I hope that doesn't change.


Our baby lost his manhood today, he's is not too happy about the cone on his head. He is getting a lot of empathy and sympathy from the other men in the house. I didn't know my 8 year old could show that much empathy. I guess it's a natural reaction in males when the family jewels are involved.
