Yay! Now I will join the rest of you airfare stalkers for the next release of Airtran and Southwest! Jetblue has a good fare going down on the 14 in the early morning but returning is the pits for time and price. So.....we shall wait!



Thanks Miss: DD swears it doesn't bother her, and she was just venting. I remember putting up with such meanness in school, just wishing I could shield then from it.

Oh, and I also helped a friend of mine get a fantastic rate for their August trip to stay at the Yacht Club...through an unnamed travel agency! They are seriously getting an amazing rate. They were originally staying at AOA but when I told her to google Stormalong Bay, she couldn't believe how great it looked. I like helping people...


Anyhoo hi to everyone, and have a great day! Let's keep on top of this airfare thing!!
My friends are staying at YC in August due to that fantastic rate too. I directed them to it...we shall not mention the name....

Phew...I am glad to hear that! My worst nightmare would be that said travel agency was not quite legit!! Sounds like it will be a fantastic trip for them though! If it was at a different time we would've jumped all over it too!!

Jen, so sorry I missed this post!! your DD has the right attitude with those bullies! hopefully she is venting and is not letting it get to her....bullies are cowards and need to exert power over others to get a kick... by DD being in control of the situation by not rising to the bait is the way to her own empowerment!! Kids are so cruel (girls particularly) ...hopefully this is the last of it.

Thank you Janet....I hope our DD's will be confident enough to let all the BS roll off.

About the Nov. plan, I am just hoping that it all falls into place! Will need some pixie dust!

So how do you guys figure out ADRs? I keep moving things around and then just as I think I have them set, I then decide it'd be better to go to this park on this day. Aarrgghh! How much do you pay attention to things like crowds, etc.?

They are legit I heard about them a few years ago when I was planning a Poly stay from Tikiman. But my dates didn't jive with the special that year. But they do this August for both GF & YC, so woohoo!!

I always pay attention to the crowds I use the crowd calendar on Easy Disney. It works.

Ok, so here's my list...Let me know what you think...this should give us a couple of QS/CS lunches and a couple of OOP breakfasts in the room (food we bring or use snack credits)

8/2
Chef Mickey's - dinner

8/3
Yak and Yeti - lunch
Via Napoli - dinner

8/4
Hollywood and Vine - breakfast (brunch)
O'Hana - dinner

8/5
Le Cellier - lunch
50's Primetime - dinner

8/6 (our anniversary)
Crystal Palace - breakfast
Cinderella's Royal Table - dinner

8/7
The Wave - breakfast
Rose and Crown - lunch
Narcoossee's - dinner

8/8
O'Hana - breakfast


Hopefully my TA is successful. :-) oh, tried the dining link to the old site, and it worked SO much better, but it wouldn't let me link my dining plan to my reservation. Weird.

Janet Your right why come back

I do not like connections either only did it once but that was enough to last me a life time. Coming back from Minn/St Paul I once paid $600+ one way to avoid a connection. NW was the only carrier flying non-stop direct so they had me over a barrel.

Jenny I like your new plans I heard about the fantastic rates at YC in August a friend of mine cancelled her BB of 35% off BWI and booked YC at MV saving an additional $1000. You did a good thing for your friend! I got a good deal @ Poly since Room & Tickets were discounted now to wait and see if Disney offers
30% at Poly when Fall Rates come out as I will save more but I sorta think by Fall it will be back to 20% since all the refurbs will be complete

You have a few of my favorites on your list, Via Napoli Yum! Le Celler

I am just not a fan of planning meals that require us to have to go from one Park to another as I have found bussing back and forth can be stressful. We use to always use PH but that was back before you had to make ADRs and walk ups was more the norm. As long as you leave enough time to get to your ADR (1-1 1/2hr) you should be fine.

I'm going to try to make it back to the room for an afternoon break, especially when we're at AK or HS where we'd have to take the bus or drive, so hopefully it's not too much of a rush back and forth. :-)

Can I just say how much I adore my little princess? We're laying in bed cuddling, she's having her "bees" and looks at me and says " I go bye bye." So I asked where she's going and she says DISNEY! She's too much. This is a common exchange for us by the way. At least once a day. She's determined to get there.

Krystal 'Ohana breakfast is amazing!!!

New ones on the list are Yak and Yeti, O'Hana for dinner, 50's Primetime, The Wave, and Rose and Crown. With the deluxe dining plan, I like to try new places each visit. Any you'd get rid of or any you'd add if it were you? :-) I have plenty of time to make changes! ;-)
