welcome home mac

they get you one way or the other, name of the game is to to make a living on the touristas, we leave with empty wallets and big 'ole smiles on our faces...let's call it a win-win.

my better half put me a travel budget a few years back, sigh. I have to do quite a bit of stretching of it to feed my nasty travel addiction, but always find somewhere to cut back on to make it work. Hot dog and spaghetti nights at home come to mind. Do believe he's caught the bug though, since he's kicking in some bonus bucks for a quick disney fix this summer hehehe

Squeeeee!!!!!!

Getting closer to booking!

Tons of (can't remember) questions. Our dates are tentatively Oct 5th - 11th and will be slip up with some beach time. Our plans are for the start of our trip to be in Orlando and finish it up at the beach, and we already know we'll be staying offsite in a rental to save on money and give us more room to move. We don't have any APs or other discounts other than AAA, so my questions are: 1) would purchasing 1 AP benefit the family? (ticket discounts, parking discounts or HHN discounts) 2) please remind me which days are typically slower for HHN so we can plan on what days we want to go and 3) who else might be there during our dates that we can finally meet?

I'm sure I'll have more as we officially start booking. For now, please bow your heads and join me in a prayer to the Great Vacation Gods that we have no disasters get in the way of our being able to make this trip

i'll be at the darkside the day after you and still there after the 11th.

you have the choice of hhn on sunday oct 6 or thursday oct 10 as the best nights for your dates. these are non peak nights.

friday october 11th will be crowded, weekends always are.
weekend hhn tix cost more as they are peak nights.

the earlier in the season, the less crowded hhn will be.
columbus day weekend will have crowds.

i'm guessing that oct 6th would be a decent choice with oct 10 a close second for which night would be your best bet.


yes, i will be at hhn both of those nights besides the next 3 hhn dates.



the preferred annual pass will give you a good discount on the hhn tix and free parking in the garage.

have you changed your mind of booking rph now?
AAA is available for onsite hotel for a discount for october.
aph has not been released yet for october dates.


of course we all will meet up.
time to put a face with a screen name!

Good morning, Good morning! A stormy one we have here. Oh well, it's been raining most of this week now, and will be so into the week-end too. Thinking we'll be grilling for Mother's Day, but eating inside.

When SW opened flights through Jan 4, 2014, on Monday, I jumped and booked our December flights. I can't believe the morning of the day we are cruising the Dream, the direct flight sold out by Tuesday. We are flying in the day before, just because. Most likely the week before Christmas won't see bad weather, but I am not taking any changes and will relax at the Hyatt for the night before. Then the younguns are flying down alone to meet us after the cruise. First time we will do a holiday vacation.

my bad dog is offended. Come to think of it haven't seen a LOL cat pic for ages.

the mr's AP expires early June but hasn't received any promo flyer, guess i better call them this weekend and renew. I'm down to last 7 day tix i have stockpiled and not sure if i'm going to buy myself a Preferred or just go with the Power Pass (much cheaper and i figure i can use his pass for the hotel/dining discounts, etc.).

i searched and couldn't find an answer here, hoping somebody knows:

if i do buy a Power Pass this year (said black out dates work fine with out vacation schedule) but jik the 2014 blackout dates do not...

could i renew the Power Pass next year & then upgrade it to a Preferred Pass at the park or would i have to start all over and purchase a new Preferred one?

I'm almost positive you can upgrade and pass at anytime.
