I know. I'm following that thread (as well as trying to get work done at work).

Post 1,000 on the DIS Boards!!!



A good news, bad news post.

First, for the good news.

I guess y'all know that MNSSHP dates and prices are out. Emailed them to youngest DD. She and DGD are probably going on the 29th. A little bit of mother/daughter time by themselves.

Hope it won't be too much for DGD. Going to make breakfast ADRs at Tusker House for that day. I think I'll just settle for as late as possible, and don't even try for anything before rope drop. Either ride the safari first thing, or try to get noontime fastpasses.

Now for the bad news.

My mother-of-the-bride dress still isn't in yet.

When i called last week, they said it would be in no later than Monday, and i made my fitting appointment for today. When I got there, my dress wasn't in. The receptionist called the manufacturer, and they said it would be here this coming Monday.

Six days before the wedding.

I demanded to see the manager immediately, and of course the manager took today off. No one could do anything. I was literally in tears. That means, having the dress fitted and altered in four days. Four (bleepin') days. And I'm Pooh-sized, so I can't get anything off the rack that would look nice...at least nice enough for the wedding.

The receptionist assured me that they would do everything they could do to fit me in my dress properly. But I just feel like I was lied to. The manager is calling tomorrow morning. I'll give her until noon, then I'm calling her.

Can you see I'm a little perturbed. No, a lot perturbed.

Congrats on 1000 posts!
Awesome news about MNSHHP.



Not so awesome news about your dress. I hope you have better news to report soon. Keep us updated.

Got my first ADR. Tusker House at 8:15 AM on October 29.

If I ever get it. Right now, I'm thinking about wearing shorts and a T-shirt that says: "All I Got for Mother's Day is this Son-In-Law."

I like Tusker House for breakfast and have had an early breakfast there, before the park opens. Yes, the parking lot will be opened and you'll be able to park right up near the entry, depending on how early you get an ADR.

We had a 7.40 am ADR and were done by 9 am.

So the parking lot was open by 7. Was it a morning EHM day?

I'm just worried that the parking lot won't be open. They're suggesting over at the Transportation Board that we valet park over at the AK lodge and take the bus over. Don't really want to do that.

Quote:
I ran to go get EE fast passes and then we wandered up to the safari. Standby line was 20 minutes.
On reflection, it may have been better to get a fastpass for the safari and then go hit EE. Either way, its a bit of walking. Hmm....maybe that isn't the best strategy.
Only person interested in EE might be DD24. We'll probably do standby at the safari after breakfast. I wouldn't mind getting Fastpasses though and let DD ride single rider on EE.

Love this! You have a great attitude! Any news on the dress? You'll look beautiful no matter what but I'm sorry to hear about your stress. You don't need that.

I know. But one of my creeds is: Something is wrong if there's not at last one major crisis going on.

Couple things:

1) With my first ADR comes my first ADR change. We're eating breakfast at 10:45 at TH. That way, I don't have to stress about the parking lot being open. And DD24 and DGD will probably go to MNSSHP that night. We'll make rope drop at AK, but that means probably getting up about 7:30 that morning instead of having to be somewhere at 7:30.

2) The dress...well it's being overnighted to the bridal salon. I have a fitting this Saturday at the salon. Hoping it's nothing but minor alterations which will take a few days.

We'll see.

Hope you've had success with the dress!

And that sounds like you've gotten your TH ADR sorted out. Timing looks great.

May the Fourth Be With You!!!

I love Star Wars.

Anyway, so far, so good. Success in making the Akershus ADR and the BBB reservations for DGD's Birthday.

BBB at DTD...Thursday Oct. 31 at 9:05 AM
Akershus....Same day at 2:45 PM (wanted late lunch)

Had to make the BBB reservations in the hospital.

No, nothing wrong. DH needed blood work done for a routine check-up. He wanted to get it over with first thing in the morning, and the hospital lab opened at 7 AM. So while the lab technician was drawing his blood, I was confirming the BBB appointment. Afterwards, we went to First Watch for breakfast. He was hungry since he needed to fast for 12 hours before the blood work.

In other news....

Remember, I told you we were going to the Wisconsin Dells later this month? We decided to extend the vacation an extra day, and hit up Chicago. We're staying at the Hilton at the airport on the 25th. That way, we can take the train into downtown Chicago and back to the hotel. The train runs 24/7. So we can stay and drink until the wee hours of Sunday morning and not have to worry about driving, or the trains not running.

Later today...the dress fitting. I'll let y'all know what happens. Wish me luck.

Glad that you were just having a standard check up for DH.

Congrats on scoring the ADRs and the extra day in the Windy City. Hope you had as much success with the dress fitting.

Oh yes, the dress. Right now, let's just say I semi-wish I didn't lose those 20 pounds.

I lost at least one dress size, and maybe two. I don't have to get anything taken in at the waist. But I have to have some taken in at the breast. Plus, I have to have it hemmed up several inches.

The alterations alone are over $100. However, they assured me the alterations will be done by Tuesday. I'll pick up the dress then.

Congrats on the weight loss! Pity about the cost of the alterations....but you have a dress for the wedding.

Finally hopped over from the FB group! So nice to get to know you and your family more! Wow, you are a BUSY woman!!! That is some kind of stress over this dress. With the craziness, I would have requested a discount on the alterations (congrats on the weightloss, though!).

I am enjoying reading along. Loved seeing the pics of your DD24's wedding and looking forward to your DD25's as well!

I am also staying at WBC (for the first few days of our trip) and cannot wait to see it!

Yea!!! New readers. Thanks for dropping in.

Really, I'm under no more stress than usual. Although I am looking forward to this time next week.

Did have a Disney oops moment over the weekend.

Last October, I bought "Cinderella" for DGD's birthday. I know she opened it, but she left it here. I've been meaning to give it back to her.

Saturday, DD24 (AKA DGD's Mom) came over with a bunch of DVDs she bought at a bargain. Including "Cinderella."

Oh well...one more Disney video for us.
