..all is right again!!

..all is right again!!!

I just got off the phone with my TA and she was able to get us switched BACK to POFQ for the same price!! (aka..we didn't lose our "code' discount) Even though I had accepted our switch to CBR (and it really does look like a beautiful place) I'm am VERY happy to know we are going back to our "home" resort for the first 5 days of our stay.

So...all is right again. Now, if I could just find all my packing lists!

That's great. I was so sad for you cause I know how much planning goes into all this. You should be where you want to be.

Did you get it in writing???

Always get it in writing!

Good luck on finding your list. There is a packing list on the threads if you type it into the search part.

That's where I found mine. I figured I would forget stuff to put on the list. The one on the thread is also alphabetized!!

I know! I have put 10 months of planning into this trip! I'm SO glad it worked out!!! Yes, I got the email confirmation today from my TA. I'm also going to call the resort and confirm it that way as well. I found an awesome packing list. It's a little over the top..but at least I shouldn't forget anything!

I'm going to post this in a seperate thread too..but for those of you who have split stays in resorts as we are doing for the first time..I have a question.

We LOVE to shop! We also LOVE to have our purchases sent back to our resort so we don't have to carry them around. Now, when in those first 5 days to I stop telling the CM to send our stuff back to POFQ and tell them to send it to GF? (POFQ first 5 days...GF last 5 days) AND if our purchases get to the GF before we check in...what happens????

Thanks!!!

FINAL DOCS ARE HERE!!..AND DAY BY DAY UPDATE

**YIPPEE** Our final docs came in on Saturday!! We were so busy this weekend we didn't check the mail until Sunday night! It was a great suprise though!!! Have you looked at my ticker??? 19 days!!!

SO, I've been looking at our ADRs and I think I'm going to make some changes. I am having 2nd thoughts about eating at the Rain Forest Cafe. I just feel that we are going to SOoooo many "sit down" dinners. We are going to be ready for a break. RFC is not on the dining plan so we would have to pay OOP. We could pay OOP for a cheaper meal and have that money for other things! I think I'm also going to cancel the sleigh ride at WL. I seem to be the only one really into it.

The following is in NO way written in stone. THis is just a very rough draft of our plans currently. We are very much "go with the flow" people and we take disney day by day. We will switch some things around and take breaks when we feel we need them.

Day 1- Departure day!!
6am- the absolute latest time we head out our door
6pm- the absolute latest time (hopefully) we should arrive at DTD Hilton.
7pm- to DTD for shopping and dinner at Earl of Sandwich

Day 2- POFQ/MK Here we come
8am- check out of DTD Hilton
8:30am -arrive and check in at POFQ
9:30am- board bus and arrive at MK!!!
11am- lunch at Casey's
4pm- start heading to main gate to board monorail to CR
5pm- CM dinner
After dinner take monorail to Epcot for illuminations

Day 3-MGM
8am- bus to MGM
9am- MGM opens
11am- lunch at Pizza Planet
5pm- Dinner at Sci Fi
7pm Osbourne Family lights
8pm -MGM closes/take bus to CR to walk to Magic Kingdom for EMH

Day 4- AK
8am- bus to AK
9am- AK opens
**first stop Kilimanjaro Safari**
11am- lunch at Flame tree
??5pm- Dinner at Rain Forest?? (most likely will cancel this and eat CS inside AK. (AK open until 7pm tonight. Just depends on how we feel)

Day 5- Epcot
8am- bus to Epcot
9am- Future world opens
11 am- VERY LIGHT lunch/snack at Sunshine Season Food fair.
3:40pm- LeCellier CP Dinner
6:45- CP show

Day 6- DTD (last day at POFQ)
Sleep in (ahhh....)
Do Laundry
Pack everything possible and put in car
Lunch at POFQ
boat to DTD
shop
5pm- Captain Jacks Dinner

Day 7 (GF here we come!!!)
8am - check out of POFQ
9am- check into GF
10am- monorail to MK
10:30- snack
12:20- Cinderella's Royal lunch
5pm-ish Dinner at Pinocchio Village Haus or Cosmic Rays
7pm- take monorail to Epcot for EMH

Day 8- MGM/Fantasmic
8am- EMH-MGM
11am- lunch at Backlot Express
4:20pm- H&V Fantasmic Dinner
6ish- Fantasmic Show

Day 9 MVMCP!!!
Sleep in! (ahh....)
Lunch/hang out at GF
- go to any park we feel we need to revist-
3pm-ish- head to MK
5:20pm LTT dinner
7pm MVMCP!!!!

Day 10 AK EMH
7am- bus to AK
8am-AK opens!!!
**first stop Kilimanjaro Safari**
11am- lunch at Pizzafari
[/B]??quickest transport to WL??????[/B]
5:20pm- WCC dinnner (WL)
8pm- Sleigh ride (will probably cancel)
after dinner take boat to MK for EMH/ or tour other resorts

Day 11 (last full day at disney)
Nothing planned until...
5:40pm Dinner at Ohana's

Day 12 ( headin' home)
lunch at Planet Hollywood
finish shopping at DTD

So, as you can see we do take multiple trips back to the parks. We don't push ourselves to see everything in one day. That's one of the HUGE benefits of going for over a week. You don't have to rush. There are a few things I know we want to do that we will try to work in somewhere in the 11 days. (go to outlet mall, play mini golf, have a spa treatment for me etc..)
