So last year my job was eliminated on July 20th - a month before our summer trip. Thankfully I started a job the day after our return but it was long term temporary. I was told yesterday that this coming week will be my last ... two weeks before our Spring Break trip.

I am upset/anxious because I obviously need a job but I am also sad because I really really liked this job and the people there. I will miss them very much.

But the Disney trip will go on! I have been trying to get a late afternoon ADR at Sci Fi for weeks and finally got one yesterday! So after seeing a few innings of the ball game on Monday we will head to Sci Fi for a snack/appetizer before our later dinner at La Hacienda.

I am not really sure why it was so important to me that we get in to Sci Fi but for some reason it became an obsession. So now I feel everything is set. The perfect 3+ day trip!

Will deal with the job stuff when I get back!

So sorry to hear that Vicki. And you were only given one week's notice. That really stinks!

I know I probably said this last time but it's something I firmly believe in.

I will help you load up with lots of pixie dust during your trip to Disney World. You will surely find that open door immediately upon your return home.

Sorry about the job loss but a trip to Disney is just the distraction until you can find a new one.

Because I am a temp, they didn't even have to give me that. But the manager likes me and I know she is sorry that the current volume of business doesn't support keeping me.

I believe that as well ... and my last job letting me go definitely proved that with this new job. But now that it is ending, I just don't know what to think.

Thanks. Yes, the trip cannot come soon enough for me at this point!

Count me in for this one

Your plans sounds great - especially going to LTT just for the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake (why have I never thought of doing that!)

Sorry to hear about your job but I'm sure something will turn up, be sure to pick up some pixie dust whilst you are at WDW

Thank you for joining Linda! I think going to LTT for dessert is genius even if I do say so myself!

Ok, so I thought about things last night and realized that if I basically swapped my original Saturday and Sunday plans we would have less running around & more time to snack in EPCOT. So I swapped. Details are in post #2.

Main differences are that I will miss the Welcome Show and we will probably not be eating at WPE. May see about BoG for lunch but we had such a bad dinner experience that Andrew really wants no part of it.

We'll see what happens ...

Have a great time! I can't wait to do mommy/daughter trips. But mine are only 4 and 3.5 right now, so we have awhile before I'll attempt taking them alone!

One of the issues with now being home until our trip is 24/7 access to the computer to make changes! I don't know that I really factored the crowds into our original plan.

So no Yak & Yeti as I don't want to deal with bag check/turnstiles at an additional Park. Dinner at The Wave instead.

And no snacking around EPCOT ... lunch at Rose & Crown & dinner now at Chefs (DS's request when I told him we would be making changes).

Really don't want to deal with any more QS lines than we have to!

3 more days!
