I think it's very likely. All of the resorts are now testing. I'd be shocked if they stopped or rolled back.

I'd never heard of this truck either until we went to a gaming party last weekend. It as amazing. Now DH wants it too.

I only have one child but its still nice to have some one-on-one time. When he was littler he and I used to go to visit my parents and to Sea World. Now that it's Disney - the whole family (DH and DSis) usually goes. But I miss those mother-son trips.

I think my kids would love the surprise, but they would want to know a little bit ahead of time because they like a little anticipation.
We are surprising our kids on the dates, they know we are going to Disney but think we are going next year! My DD9 wants to know the day of, she said I have to do something nice not just wake her up and say we are going to Disney so I need to come up with a plan since our flight leaves at 7 AM!

Oh my, I didn't even want to look at the price. I'm sure most kids would like it though.

That will be tough to do when you have to get her up at 4am. My husband didn't want me to book the 6am flight because he didn't want to have to leave the house by 3:15. We are getting a 9am flight now and I'm losing 3 hours of Disney time

Ok y'all here is our first attempt at this years LGMH! This one will be on our door at POP, we will have an identical one on our bag and each of us will have a smaller individual one on us somewhere.

I used lime green paper from Michaels craft store, and printed the name and the outline on my printer, cut it out, then laminated it with laminating envelopes I got from Wal-Mart. Used our iron and some towels to melt the laminate together.

Awesome job!!! I need to go and find the blank ones. Although, every year when I've made one, no one recognizes it. So....maybe this will be a different kind of year.

I have been checking frantically every day to see if there is availability for one more FD night at the end of our stay. I have been hawking the website and calling constantly only to be told that FD are sold out for that night at POR. We were able to get a room discount for that night, but it was only 5% at POR, but at least we had a room for the night.

This morning I checked the website, albeit with a different checkin date, but it was available until 11/9! I called immediately and they said some nonsense about that night only being available if I checked in on 11/2(the date I plugged in) but not if I checked in on 10/31. Huh??? I then asked nicely to talk to a supervisor; I didnt' quite get that if there was availability on that night, why couldn't I add it on? Instead of connecting me to the supervisor, the CM came back on and said they would add the extra night!!!

I can finally stop checking the WDW website any time I had a free minute. Now I can devote even more time to the DIS!!!!
So happy for you....and on so many levels. Congrats on your new addition, free dining for the length of your stay, and the awesomeness of the airfares. Oh, by the way....I will have to send you a PM later. Hubby & I will be in Haddonfield on Thursday.

It's just a mess. Like other people said, it was in Seaside which was devastated by Hurricane Sandy. They do think it was intentional. You have to understand, it's the Firefighter's Convention in Wildwood this weekend....there were all ready tons of departments there and away from their "home base". As a firefighter is galls me that this happened. Why would you so many people potentially in harms way. And, from my understanding, it destroyed at least 4 blocks. Just ticks me off.....

On another, and better note: I got MB & FP+!!! I spent the afternoon customizing with my family and choosing some of our FP+. We can't decide on every day, but maybe we'll decide the closer we get. I was happy that I got Soarin' and Test Track for evening our first day in the parks....we always start at MK and then we're going to Epcot for dinner at Coral Reef.

OK....now I have to go and update the first post, because I have been lax in my responsibilities. Everyone have a great day!

Cute. I like the black outline. Makes it pop. ( no pun intended.)
