I would probably ditch POR this time around. I love it there, but the AOA LM room for your daughter will be time better spent.

POLY???? Do tell!! We've done lots of late Augusts. While the North is still not in school yet, crowds were lighter. But now we notice a HUGE influx of people on the start of Free Dining. It is actually better to go just before Free Dining kicks in in August IMO.

Great Review if anyone is interested http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2013/0...-disney-world/
Thanks!!! Tell Bob to just chant "Dole Whip" and all will be o-kaaaaaaaay! I like your first day plan. It feels so relaxing. What is the actual date of your arrival.

As I'm sure is no surprise to anyone here, I'm already pulling back from the idea of offsite. I want my YC. I want to price out a Poly CL/YC CL spit. Probably 3 and 5. Stoopid magical system upgrades. I toyed with dropping CL but DH will hear none of that. He is more of a princess than I am!
That Presidential Suite is AMAZING!!! I am so happy for your opportunity to stay there. Poly/YC CL is a killer split!!! Two thumbs up!

I hope this plan working out for Steven. You know just where to find RCers when you have the time.

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?
Oh my!!! What a wacky situation with your ADRs. I agree it sometimes sure feels as if they want us to only call that dreaded (407) Great idea to start with CRT to really get into the first-day WDW magic! My DH want to do CRT next March so I can't wait to hear your review.

I made a ticker. That's a serious commitment in my book!
Such a nice commitment to make. It sounds magical.

I'm just too p**ped to pop.

Perfect time to sit down and catch up. In no particular order...

Welcome backs to our lovely I_Heart, MM and GG.

Happy Birthdays to MM's DD and Deena!

Wanted to say thank you for the "Happy Birthdays" to Miss M. I can't believe she's 6 already (and going on 16).

Pas: Please give HRH a huge high-five from me for being a brave cookie during her MRI, certainly braver than me! I hope the check-up for Bree yields nothing of concern... and the ear-tube op goes super smooth for DS. (If the ENT mentions he'll need ear plugs for swimming/baths/showers, the ones we use for Miss M are called Zoggs, by the way. Got them off none other than Amazon. They're kinda nifty since they're reusable.) MEGA congrats on the 4.0.... way to GO momma!

Melissa: I hope the modified schedule for Steven will help.

Jen: How'd the pancake brekkie go? I flippin' LOVE that granddad painted their fingernails. (Well, not the overly tired bit but how cool is he? ) 2 weeks is coming up FAAAAAAAAAAAAAST! Take me in your suitcase.

I_Heart: Ooooooh WOW! I had a peek through all of those pics. What a absolutely FABULOUS trip! And that industrial-sized glob of Pixie Dust which they dropped on you! Your celebration was just

MM: Yet ANOTHER grand trip. Looking forward to all of your new plans (and 1,000 changes of course).

Sheila: That sounds like a mighty nice first day plan! I love the turkey sandwich at CC's. Oh, and that link you posted to BW Bakery... holy SHMOLEY. I was trying not to drool all over myself. That is a HUGE improvement. Makes me wish we were over there a teensy-tiny bit (I won't think about SAB).

Wookie & Dani: Since you guys were chatting about melatonin, thought I'd chime in since I've been taking it for a couple of years now. I have to take a couple weeks off periodically so it'll work again... if that makes any sense. For me, it seems to stop working after an extended period of taking it at night, so I'll take a brief break from it and it works again.

Magic: Yeah, I'm going to just wing it for The Wave and GF Cafe. (Shame I didn't listen to my own ideas for the rest of the ADRs! The lure was too strong. )

GG: Awww, I love Seattle. Do you think she'll make the move?

Kook: You're now at your two favourite CLs, right? No changes now, okay?

Ginny: A ticker? That IS a serious commitment. Even if they went back to the old website... at least we all knew it worked. How'd the chili turn out? Yummmmm-o.

Koh: Oooooh, how exciting about the Minnie party! Yep, it's a funny thing about those balloons... even at 6, I think Miss M was more stoked about the balloons than a majority of her presents.

Petey: Glad you got your ressies.

~~--------------------------~~

Hubbo took the day off yesterday so we could have some time to "decompress" after my mom and dad left. To relax, we wound up buying a bunch of topsoil, some mulch and a tree to plant. How's that for relaxing?

Okay experts, how does this sound for ADRs?
  • Day 1: Arrival Day! Artist Point at 7:45pm (our anniversary) ** Had to book this AGAIN due to the mysteriously vanishing ADR.
  • Day 2: First full day. 8:30am breakfast at CRT.
  • Day 3: Nada. Zip. Zilch. F&W, F&W, F&W
  • Day 4: Be Our Guest at 4:10pm (hubbo's birthday)
  • Day 5: Crying Day. Breakfast at Chef Mickey's.

We've never done CRT (because the kiddo isn't into princesses) or Chef Mickey's. We might end up cancelling Chef Mickey's. Although, we thought that since we'd probably be in the lobby a few times, Miss M might get a hankering for trying it if she saw it.

Can you believe I've got sunburn already?! My ghostly-pale skin can't handle this bright sun. On a bad day, just having hopped outta bed, I could seriously work The Haunted Mansion with no make-up needed.

Thanks Ginny I think all the doctor's visits are all set, surgery is set. DH is off that day so he can get the kids off to school, and I'll take little man...however, I think he'll wind up at the Surgicenter to see DS..the plus is I know all the nurses at the center so I KNOW my baby boy is well taken care of, they took care of DS21 when he had his ankle surgery (he was 17) and he had an allergic reaction...they were on it! I've worked with them when we were on Labor & Delivery together

As for CR, DH reminded me that we walked through and I wasn't "feeling" it. I asked where he wanted to stay....I got anywhere but GF Ugh...Polynesian??? The reply, whatever you want my love....has he forgotten who he's talking to....

He did say he will need ear plugs, thanks for the tip

HRH was so good, it was loud even with headphones, they gave her 3 chocolate bars when she was done. Even the neurologist said she was impressed. The girl is strong, when she sets her mind to do something....unfortunately it holds true for everything...so the 6 going on 16...yup 8 going on 30 for her So far, knock wood, no more headaches......My gut tells me there is something up with Bree, something not caught on tests just yet...I hope I am being paranoid but she shouldn't be having chest pain or shortness of breath at all. She is so excited to see her heart doctor. Bree loves her doctors...they are all female, and very very nice

GG, I will need to tap into your expertise for the "west of the Mississippi" Marriotts. Sounds like you've been to some really cool ones. Also your Northwest experience will be invaluable, too, if I may inquire. Victoria Island beckons me, too.

Is Deena celebrating at our favorite place - WDW?

Melissa: How do you feel about DS's new school schedule?

Miss 4.0: Doesn't DH know not to tell you to book whatever you want (except GF)? Now you're going to go and book RPC, aren't you?

MAGIC: Yes, Paul Blart has a way with words, doesn't he? Of course, so did John Cheever and Susan's father

Gwynne: How are you feeling?

to everyone else and lurkers, too (we know you're out there).

P**ped to pop??? Are you PEEPED? Are you PSUPED? Maybe you're PLUPED

If I don't call for BLT availability then I won't be changing, right?

My DD would envy your effortless ability to be mistaken for a HM CM - we love HM. Which is ironic because DD was scared to death of the ride up until her, umm, tween years

Well, I think BoG will be much fun and you'll be the first in for dinner! But, I think you need to stay longer - do you only have 3 full days? What would be your CM substitute? Can you add days and therefore more ADRs? We LOVE Tokyo Dining and your DD can eat out of a monorail!! (Monorail not included...)

Victoria is absolutely gorgeous!! I was there when I was little, but I'd love to go again now when I'd really appreciate it.

Can you believe we didn't do Victoria Island .... DH has been wanting to take me there ever since we met so DD and I decided we'd better save that for him!
