Hang in there! And don't worry about catching up. :-) you certainly don't need extra stress! Sending hugs and positive thoughts/prayers your way.

Yay! Glad you got BOG .... I think you will enjoy it. I haven't even checked yet today to see if the website is back up or not .... guess I better do that!

I really hope this works for both you and Steven. Maybe more time at home will be good for him .... less stressful? Hugs!

I know several of y'all have been this year, and I was wondering if you have a picture of the refillable mug. JM was asking if they would look the same, or different. I assumed it would be different, or at least I hope they are different.

They are the same as they have been for the last 2.5 years...

We didn't even buy any this trip because we have too many of the current design. I like to collect them and haven't been able to add a new one in quite some time.

I have seen a few posts saying it is still the same one with the pool scene. I already have 2 like that so I really hope they get a new one soon.

Well that stinks. Maybe it's Disney's way of telling us to re-use the refillable mugs?

Jeanette I guess your DH will have to visit the BW some evening to get his funnel cakes ......too bad we are not there at the same time him and Bob could go together.

Good morning to all.

I owe everyone a "catch up" post! I've missed lots of goings-on.

Let me throw in a quick new website ADR complaint... (like you guys haven't heard the likes of this before, right? )

After saying I wanted to keep it simple and only have 2 ADRs, we decide to do add a special "kick it off right" on our first morning and I booked CRT. We've never eaten there since Miss M isn't really a princess sorta gal but we both decided the location would be a sweet start to the vacation. I looked last night to see that MK usually opens at 9am on the day we had it booked (I booked a breakfast ressie at 9:05am). This morning, I decide to check for an earlier time and noticed an 8:30 was available so I proceeded to book that one. It pops up with a conflicting reservation window. What was strange about this was it had listed the original reservation time as 10:05am. Weird, right? So I cancelled the original and decided to check my other ADRs...

I booked Artist Point for our arrival night, a Saturday (also our anniversary) and the website now has it listed as SUNDAY! What?! It's also a totally different reservation number than the one in the confirmation email (which has the correct day and time). If all they really want us to do is eventually have to break down and call anyway, why don't they just get rid of the new totally-borked website?

Back after my torture session to catch up. I hope everyone's mornings are off to a good start so far...

MM-What took you so long???? Seriously, we've only been once in late Aug, and it was reasonably busy. Doable, though.

Pas-Love the change! Do you think a CR/Poly split is in the works?
We've never stayed at a monorail before, so we're looking forward to 2 nights at CR. After a "few" indecisive changes, we decided that's where we'll be. What sealed the deal were the rumors about Cali Grill being open (hopefully) in Sept. We have a just in case reservation at Narcoossees. I sent an email to the IPO, and they've noted our request, for CG. They will book it if dining open reservations.
I made a ticker. That's a serious commitment in my book!

Missout-The Disney website is just crazy. What are they thinking with having such an unreliable site? Maybe one of these years they will totally fix it.
