It stuck me so funny, thinking about how nice and light hearted this resort thread is. Kind of like a bunch of jimmy buffet fans drinking sunken treasure all day by the pool when you leave you get a bumper sticker from lizzy from cars that : says "don't worry be happy" doing a conga line

Sorry couldn't help it!
I love this!!!

I hope one year when ALL of our friends from this thread have raised our kids, kicked them to the curb, and are ready for some fun ... we all meet at BC/YC and have a HUGE Dismeet "Jimmy Buffet" style party!!!

Anybody that will be at the Y&B 4/21 and 4/22, I'll now be off work and on the Fantasy. Sorry I'm going to miss you all.

Right now I have absolutely nothing planned for September so on any Sunday and Monday in September I should be there and look forward to talking to you about our MANY Disney cruises. We love cruising and I can talk your ear off about it ... as many of the group here can tell you. Please PM me if you have any questions before September though.

I'll see you then. I'll be back in the lobby on 4/28 and 29. I'll be the one with the big "I was just at Castaway Cay" SMILE on my face.

An opportunity presented itself. A close friend asked if our family would like to go with them to Disney for a week in late August. ~SNIP!~

I decided that I can't let this opportunity go by, especially when my friend wants to do BEACH CLUB with us!!!

Still early in the planning, and I haven't mentioned it to my stressed out DH yet, but I can see this happening. ~SNIP!!~

Anyway, I hope to come here for more info as my plotting and scheming continues!!
OH WOW!! Never give up hope! I am so happy to hear this!! Sometimes when life gives you lemons you have to make a Mojito any way you can.

Good luck with the planning and the scheming. Late August is a great time to go to WDW and the prices tend to drop as more people stop vacationing and get back to the business of life. I really think this trip will take the edge off of some of the other things that are bringing you down!

(well that and making dining reservations 180 days out (although we were just over 100 days out when we booked.)


The questions I had about what time we should leave YC to make it to MK rope drop was answered previously in the thread but I have a follow up. What do you guys do for 30-60-90 minutes after you arrive at the park but before you are let in? If you are chosen to be the "the family of the day" what exactly does it entail? Trying to decide if I arrive early and schmooze up a CM as someone suggested.


Thanks!!!
I know what you mean about the lazy beach vacation versus a trip to WDW!
We find that if we hit rope drop and leave by lunch time for a break, this type of vacation, while still an active one, is manageable. I'd recommend walking for 30 mins to an hour 4 times a week to get your self in shape for a WDW vacation. Having your tootsies in fine form before you go really helps to make the whole thing more manageable IMHO.

Usually I find that unless I leave super early I am always busy with bag check and then the welcome show starts. I have not yet been able to get to the MK any where near early enough to be in the running for family of the day. I think you have to be there over an hour early. At least that's the scuttle butt I've heard from people reporting that they were picked.

Now since it's me, if I did get there that early, I can imagine I would keep myself entertained by squirting security with my Super Soaker water pistol, but that's just me... All that walking I did before the trip will really pay off when I have to start RUNNING to avoid being captured. Fortunately I am still on the lam as security has not yet caught up with me.... but like my husband says, "It's only a matter of time".

How fun! The price of rum is cheaper there too My in-laws have a condo on St. Thomas and we used to go quite a bit. Recently, my mother-in -law has been sick and we have not been going. I miss it. Have a great trip!!

for Mickey T's 6th annual 1/2 marathon! Yesterday, I watched the 10K sell out, and today I'm watching the 1/2 marathon reach 51%. That's OK - we'll be there in 2015!

Teena, YAY!!!! What great news - I'm SO excited for you!!! I still need to make up for that missed Castaway Cay day on the Dream in 2011. Hoping to get back to the Wonder eventually . . .

Feckless, I'm with you! We have DL this summer while we're in Newport and then a Disney break in 2014. Meanwhile, I consider imaginary trips for the BC/YC meet in July and the 1/2 Marathon in January 2014. Glad the friends here continue to be so welcoming as my photos and BC/YC information start to age!

Robyn, I remember you telling the story of your surprise long ago and just love it! I just love surprises, but the time we tried it, our middle son made the all star baseball team for the first time and a couple games conflicted with our surprise trip. So we ended up telling the boys about a week before departure, so that our middle son would know the situation and be assured that the coach would still let him play the other games. But it was a wonderful time at WDW and BC! Maybe we'll give it another try someday!

Zup2002, we're at the bus stop to MK about an hour before opening. The bus isn't usually there right away - might have to wait 5-15 minutes. The bus ride itself is about 15-18 minutes, depending on whether it stops at BWI. Then there's the walk over to the security check from the bus takes a few minutes, the line for the bag check, going through the turnstiles (or now, the RFID thingies.) And the opening show starts about 10 minutes before opening. So if you add up all that time together, there's not much down time! But if the boys are still eating breakfast items from the Marketplace or the club lounge, we throw those in a ziplock and bring it along - just in case we're waiting a few minutes for the opening show to begin.

Have fun!!

I'll volunteer to go now and start reserving space for us. I know, I know...... it may be a while, but I'll make the sacrifice! I wonder how many Sunken Treasures I'll have while I wait for everyone?
