I keep checking SW when they announce their sales on Tuesday to see if the flights we booked have dropped; they just seem to be going up. I managed to nab $135 on the departure and $111 on the return. That's about as good as it's going to get for us, I think.

Piglet's Mommy: Oh my, MORE than double to stay on-site?

to all.
Thanks for the good vibes on air! I hope it is released soon...I never really relax until air is booked.

Yeah...we are paying $539 at Anabella, Disneyland Hotel was $1295 for the same 3 nights. Paradise Pier was just around 1100. I forget what GCH was, as I know it was more, and the one I really wanted was Disneyland Hotel, but I just can't see it at that much more.

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!



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!!
Awesome news on your cruise! You will love it!
Congrats on the great YC deal for your friend!

ADR's stress me out! I look at EMH days and pick the park with the morning EMH for the day. I look at crowd calendars, but don't focus on them too much, as that usually goes against the morning EMH, but we are early birds, so it works for us. We aren't doing a dining plan in Nov, since it is F&W and I am looking forward to not being tied to ADR's as much. We will make some, but won't have to worry about losing credits if we want to cancel something.

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.
Yum!!! Looks good to me! Esp. since you said you are on deluxe and like to park hop.

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!!!
She is so smart!

For $40, I think I would make that change too!

Nope, I NEVER had a "furure husband"

Just wanted to pop in and say hello. I hope everyone is doing well. Things are their normal crazy around here, which includes JM getting suspended from school for a few days. If only those 157 days until we check into the BC could just fly by.

Luckily it's Friday, .and I have a 12 pack of Strawberry-ritas cooling in the fridge waiting for the DH to get home.

Jeanette: Glad you were able to also take advantage of that rate at YC!! And I am happy you and hubster had a nice couple of days. Hope you are refreshed and re-energized.

PigletsMommy: Have you all done a DCL before? If so....share!!

Linda: Did you get the info on the TA that you needed? I can also PM if you want.

Dani: That is so cute about Lily, my youngest pouts quite frequently too and just says "I want to go back to Didney".

Minnie&Nana: Did you decide on dates and resort for your May trip??

SRiley: Sounds like you fit right in here!

Well, I will pop in later, I am on my own tonight. DH's band is playing a fundraiser concert tonight for a friend of a friend who is battling cancer for a second time. He is only 40ish, with a wife and two small boys. They were trying to save for a trip to Disney (this brought tears to my eyes.) when the cancer returned and the drug treatments are just eating away at their entire finances. Hope tonight will raise some much needed funds for them. I will try and post a link about them...

Hope this works:

Thanks. I just hate it because he has been doing so well lately.

On an awesome note....
When Joey got home from school, he came right to my room. He has been a real rear to get up for school this week and has been giving me attitude. As he was leaving school, he bought me a chocolate chip cookie and a chocolate milk to say he was sorry. He got his dad a chocolate chip cookie to apologize for giving him attitude the other day. I am so proud of him that he knew he needed to apologize and wanted to do something to make it up.

Lily is SO flipping adorable (to use a Miss-ism ) but it's all true. She is quite the princess and knows what she wants!!

Wookie, so sorry... at least it's friday and the drinks are chillin'... I assuming this has something to do with the recent problems he's been having at school?

And just read your follow up post... Joey is quite the young man, to come to you that way to tell you straight off... and bearing chocolate too...

Jen, thanks for sharing the story link...so sad for that young family. How thoughtful that your DH and his band members (and others in the community) are joining in to help him. Hope it raises a bunch!!

I'm thinking of doing 3 nights Disney 2 nights Universal. I'm not sure though. I think if it were a longer trip I'd be more open to doing it.

Good morning all fellow RCers!!

DD was miserable yesterday with diarreah, and although she seems better in that department, she's awfully crabby and whiny. It's going to be a long weekend...

No RC news although my TA did get ADRs set up. Most of them are what I wanted. O'Hana dinner is just a bit later than I wanted...8:00 at night...may have to tweak a few things if we decide to let DS do a pirate adventure cruise thing or if we do the Pirate and Pals Wishes cruise then...

Have a good day! DD is being her RH self right now and wants me...I'll be back later! :-)
