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.
Welcome! I always end up at "screw it. let's go big!"

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.
Thanks!

That's why I we tried RPC for 2 nights only. Those rates are unbelievable Now after the awesome upgrade we got there I'm afraid to try it again.

More great news!

Yes, I do need to crack the whip! They all go through phases and they all seem to be in a less then helpful one right now.

I did sent a request, but haven't heard back yet. I think I'm making progress with DS though. The lure of staying deluxe and low crowds may convince him it's ok to miss a few days of school again.

Oh, I love doing that as well. I have always been one to take things apart to see how they work. After destroying watches two Christmases in a row by doing that, my mom stopped buying me watches for Christmas. I just do so much on my laptop (school work and gaming) that I am too chicken to attempt it myself.

Much better. The BP is way low for me. Before posting this I checked it and it was 114/76. Early it was 103/69.

I guess it's just me then. I have searched and searched for the app and it never comes up.

Here is a picture of the actual case, and not the one from Amazon's website. I totally love it!! I didn't notice it, until someone I grew up with mentioned it, but there is no Snow White on it. Since it has my two favs, I'm ok with that. Although it would have been nice it she had been on it.

Well since we make things bigger here in Texas, I would like to order a Texas sized one please.

When you have such severe erosion and ulcers by the time you are 7, I think you are willing to do what ever it takes to fix it.
It did, thank you. It usually does. I just have to get my body adjusted to taking my meds again and not having high blood pressure.

Your right, it will just confuse me even more than I already am. The DH is crazy and willing to do just one room at the PC. Then instead of doing MNSSHP Friday the 13th (if they have it) since it will be our last full day there, he has a crazy plan. My plan has us sleeping late, doing resort/pool time then heading to the MK for MNSSHP. Then on Saturday we have a late breakfast at Chef Mickey's and head home. His plan has us check out of our WDW resort on Friday before we head to DHS, spend the day at DHS and then go to a hotel nearby for the night. Check out on Saturday and head home. I'll leave it to the Disney Fates. If they have MNSSHP on Friday the 13th, we will do that and check out of our WDW resort on Saturday Sept. 14th.

Hi everyone!!! The change is official!!! We're doing a 4 night cruise, 9/1 - 9/5, and then a 4 night resort stay at the Poly, 9/5 - 9/9. Can't wait!!! We decided doing it this way since we wouldn't get the full $200 deposit back and DH was worried that the 7 night cruise would be too long for my first cruise. He was not too crazy about his first cruise but is willing to give it another try so we went with the shorter cruise.

On a side note, I must vent, hehe. I am not happy with Disney's call service reps! Ok, it started out Sunday when I called DCL to ask a few questions. She then asked which stateroom we were looking at, I told her catagory 07A which is the cheapest of the verandah views she tells me there are none available and if I wanted a verandah view the next cheapest is $500 more, and then asks if I want to go ahead and book. I told her no because when I looked online that morning it was still available, she then tells me their system is more up to date than what I can pull up, then offers to put the room the room on hold, I declined that as well because I did not believe her. So, that night I go to book, what did I get??? Catagory 07A, booked AND confirmed!!!! Now I just feel like she was trying to get me to spend an extra $500.
Now, on to the resort reservation. I called last night to change the dates to 9/5 - 9/9. I literally had to tell this woman the dates 3 times because their system kept messing up and she had to keep switching screens!!!!! So then our current reservation was with a BB offer for free dining, upgraded to Dxddp. When I originally made the reservation I was told I could remove the Dxddp if I decided I didn't want it, at the time I was torn between the two, but yesterday I was told no changes can be made to it.....what???? Has anyone else had experiences with that? Mind you, this ended up being a 35 minute total call so I was quite irritated by the time I got off the phone!!!
Now here's the kicker....the Disney website has our new reservation correct but the confirmation is now showing 8/31 - 9/9!!!!!! Why can't they get anything right????? Needless to say the excitement has been over taken by frustration, for now at least!

Congrats on getting the cruise booked!! As yes you can make any changes to your package ressie, including chaning your dining plan up to 45 days out... call back today and hopefully your CM will be more knowledgable.

Do not like the new system ... I've linked my new reservations (why didn't my new 2013 ressies show up there to begin with??) and still it didn't bring over all the info.

Thank you Janet, you've made my day!!! I thought you could modify it, that's even what I was told when I booked it. I agree on disliking the new system!!! When I first go to link the reservation online it pulls it but it never fully links it, so frustrating!!

One of these days we are going to make it to Chicago again. My 8 year old is begging to see a Cubs game.
We've finally got SNOW -- just in the past 4-5 days. Nothing before that. Very strange winters we've been having.

2 weeks to recover?! Can we clone your in-laws? They sound like a ton of fun. (My in-law recovery period is usually just for frazzled nerves. ) Are they in the city? We're out in suburbia ... really wish we lived a bit closer in -- oh the restaurants and shopping. Maybe it's best we don't live a bit closer. Even though I'm not a native, I do absolutely love Chicago. You should ask your DH how to correctly pronounce the supermarket "Jewel" -- the accent here just cracks me up.

How's fur-baby this morning?

Do not like the new system ... I've linked my new reservations (why didn't my new 2013 ressies show up there to begin with??) and still it didn't bring over all the info.
But wait, can you make changes to the dining plan if it's booked on BB offer? I'm still pretty sure you can and that's what I had been told when I made the reservation. I kept telling the lady "just remove the Dxddp portion and keep the free dining part."

We decided doing it this way since we wouldn't get the full $200 deposit back and DH was worried that the 7 night cruise would be too long for my first cruise. He was not too crazy about his first cruise but is willing to give it another try so we went with the shorter cruise.

On a side note, I must vent, hehe. I am not happy with Disney's call service reps! Ok, it started out Sunday when I called DCL to ask a few questions. She then asked which stateroom we were looking at, I told her catagory 07A which is the cheapest of the verandah views she tells me there are none available and if I wanted a verandah view the next cheapest is $500 more, and then asks if I want to go ahead and book. I told her no because when I looked online that morning it was still available, she then tells me their system is more up to date than what I can pull up, then offers to put the room the room on hold, I declined that as well because I did not believe her. So, that night I go to book, what did I get??? Catagory 07A, booked AND confirmed!!!! Now I just feel like she was trying to get me to spend an extra $500.
Now, on to the resort reservation. I called last night to change the dates to 9/5 - 9/9. I literally had to tell this woman the dates 3 times because their system kept messing up and she had to keep switching screens!!!!! So then our current reservation was with a BB offer for free dining, upgraded to Dxddp. When I originally made the reservation I was told I could remove the Dxddp if I decided I didn't want it, at the time I was torn between the two, but yesterday I was told no changes can be made to it.....what???? Has anyone else had experiences with that? Mind you, this ended up being a 35 minute total call so I was quite irritated by the time I got off the phone!!!
Now here's the kicker....the Disney website has our new reservation correct but the confirmation is now showing 8/31 - 9/9!!!!!! Why can't they get anything right????? Needless to say the excitement has been over taken by frustration, for now at least!

Dealing with the phone CM's sure can be a chore!

When you call back ask to talk to Guest Services the problem is most likely because tht BB promo is expired and a reg CM can not make the change

Morin' Peeps!! Trying to play catch up....

IHeart: Good Luck today at the DS’ appt.

Miss, we love ya too!! Dork tech and all! P.S. Love the Code of Shame remark! Made me think of “UP”

Melissa, only one more day!!

DetTigsGal, did I miss it? Did DS make the Wind Ensemble??

Wookie, hope you can come to a happy resolution of the AOA/WL dilemnia... my first thought would be AOA for the extra room, you and DH have your separate bedroom... can you make an ADR or two at WL? I also think one PC room is not a good fit for the 4 of you…just not big enough. I think your heart lies with WL … how about the FW Cabins?? It would give you extra room and is in the similar setting as the Lodge.. or it is you that prefers not to stay there? If you are looking to cut some $$, have you considered scaling back to the Regular DP? In the September heat & humidity, you may find yourself not as hungry as you normally might be and 2 TS meals a day can be a lot. We go in August, and it’s just enough for us to get in one TS on the regular DP. Just a thought.

People feel they can post anything hiding behind the wall of the internet... we are a friendly, welcoming group …you talk with us all you want about your plans (and changes!)

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 ..
Pumba, different strokes for different folks! That’s why Disney offers so many resort options. We tried ASMu, was happy with the resort, but after moving over to POP have not looked back when staying at a value… just love the vibe and energy of the resort… it isn’t for everyone, but fits us fine. BTW, POR Riverside is also a new fav of mine …. Having just stayed there in January… I think I tend to love the one I’m at Welcome!!

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.
Heather! I'm like you, start with the POP and then imagine all the possibilities, trouble is I usually go ‘round full circle... think I need to apply the brakes sometimes and just go for it!! You have come to the right place, much waffling goes on here.
