Thank you very much, it's always my worst fear too.. Once I literally got sick the day we arrived at WDW, my family's first trip ever. Crossing my fingers!!!!

Thanks!
mopp22 to the DIS and this forum!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list for late February.



Being able to walk to EPCOT is just awesome!!! It is my favorite thing about the Beach Club. Sorry Stormalong Bay.

We have a few WL/BC lovers on this board, so hopefully they can share their comparisons between the two resorts.

What I find MOST interesting is that so many of us from the Northeast flock to BC/YC which is based off old time quaint New England shore. You'd almost think that we'd all go for the exact opposite from where we live, yet we stay "pseudo-coastal"!

I'm beginning to feel like I need to move so I can be a part of the Northeast group on here!! Does it count that I live along the lakeshore of Michigan (Lake Michigan side), it's no New England, but it is beautiful (our Holland State Park is continually on the Top 10 Beaches in the US), not to mention our spectacular display of Tulips during Tulip Time

Logpey I'm excited to hear your TR about the Princess Half and CL experience!! I so badly want to do CL, but unless there is a discount I don't think I can get my DH to agree (although, he is intrigued ) And the Princess Half, I have a good friend who is continually urging me to get my butt running so we can do a fun run like that together, just a girls weekend!! Not to mention it is always very, very close to my birthday (maybe for my 40th)!!

We're hanging in there. Although I didn't post about it here, you know that we unexpectedly lost my mom over Christmas and we're all still trying to accept our new reality. Booking Disney trips seems to help!
We're also considering buying resale DVC at BCV!

Hi Amanda, it's Mel.... Disney has comforted us in times of loss as well. Sending loving thoughts your way.

Goodness, that happened to me last January. Spent the week prior to our trip getting my older son & our daughter over a bad cold. Thought all was well, then the first morning of our vacation I woke up with a horrible sore throat. By the second day, I had lost my voice entirely.

Well, it seems funny now. But it wasn't completely awful. I'd rather be sick in Disney than sick at home. lol

Hope everyone is healthy soon! Fluids, fluids, fluids!!

That is one thing I remember about living in Mass. They have this blatant disregard for the letter R. I never really considered myself as Southern til I lived in Rockport for 3 years. Now that I have been returned to my homeland (the Southeastern US -lol), I can say that my passion for GOOD fish & chips has not died, nor has my use of the word 'wicked'.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your mom DrMomof3 I lost my grandma Christmas Eve, unexpectedly (although it will be 14 years this coming December, we were very close). How are your kids doing?

Oh yes, it's very important that I have an easier journey back to my resort than the last time. I was staying at POP Century and left The 'Rolls around 1 a.m. I walked through the resort to the BW bus loop, waited 20 minutes for a DTD bus. Finally got to DTD West Side, and didn't even bother to wait for a POP bus because one from AoA had arrived. So I hopped that one, got to AoA and walked through that resort, across the bridge and through the 50's section to get back to my room, which was all the way at the end of the jukebox building.

This time I will not make such a rookie mistake. Location, Location, Location!

I'm in the northern suburbs of Detroit. We're expecting 3-5 inches tonight.
Can't wait to escape to Disney! Only 22 more days!

I'll definitely do a trip report. It's sucks because I really need to be running, but since this flu hit, it's knocked me on my keister, so it makes me pretty nervous. CL is great, we've been fortunate to stay the last few vacay's at WDW in CL-- but only because of discounts, I've never paid rack rates ever & I never will.

It makes it much easier for my family to grab breakfast & snacks in the lounge than breakfast out. Also my hubby is a drink ***** & I don't mean alcohol--he's constantly drinking water, soda's, gatorade, plus an occasional spirit, so it actually saves us money. Our family actually spends a lot of time at resort--so it makes since for us, as far as value!!!

You have to do the Princess Half, especially for your 40th. What a great way to remember it & leave the thirties with a bang!!!!!! I'm looking forward to it....hope to hear you've decided to make the leap (run)!!!Take care...

So NYC is supposed to get 6-12 inches of that nasty white stuff... I'm thinking it's better that this is happening now and not in 2 weeks when I'm set to leave for my happy place! I hope anyone who is set to leave for Disney living in the Northeast gets there safely this weekend!!

Hey Mel! Dang girl you get around--twitter, moms panel hopeful DIS, here, just everywhere!!! Did you ever take your girls trip, I guess the one you take every year?

Going on my fourth day now, forcing fluids down. Thankfully kids & hubby are good. Just hoping it stays that way!!!!!
