I guess I am a little confused. I have only ever used the DIS Boards before, so I am wondering, is the forum that you created different in some way? Do we post there INSTEAD of here?

So we are now, officially, 100% booked! (Yay!) My mother in-law, sister in-law and niece are in a Category 11, cabin #6521. My best friend, David and sister in-law, Dee are in Category 11, Cabin #6515. (Those are both those funky side-ways cabins! We have stayed in them before and loved them. They seem to have more space, even though they don't!) My husband and I are in a Category 10, #7505. Here's one thing I am wondering, though... would I be more likely to get upgraded if I booked them as GTY status instead? This is the firts time we have ever NOT been GTY and I am wondering....are they just as likely to upgrade us with Cabin numbers attatched, or not so much???? Anyone know???

Also, I have the most phenominal story about our airfare! I had heard that Spirit Airlines was having a $30 each way sale, so I logged on to try and book the six of us who would be coming from Boston. As I am entering the info, I am noticing that the price of the flight is coming up as $0.00. Wierd....so I complete the booking and guess what??? We ONLY had to pay the taxes and surcharges! We ended up paying $252 TOTAL for the six of us to fly roundtrip! I guess Spirit was having some kind of Red Light Sale where a very limited number of seats were booked for just $1.00 a seat or something, and I happened to stumble upon it! How psyched are we?!?!?!? So I recomend to anyone looking for airfare, check out spiritair.com and check frequently!

If my numbers are correct, we have 288 days to go! I can not wait! Now that have officially booked, my whole family is in major cruise planning mode. We will discuss the cruise CONSTANTLY until about 4 months after we come back from it!

Yetserday I booked our resort for the night of the 16th and our rental van form Avis. So now we have deposits down, dining rotation requested, flights paid for, car and hotel booked. Time to start looking at excursions. Plus the other great thing about being booked for January is that we can take advantage of all of those end of summer sales in all the stores! Can't wait!!!

It's hard for me to post regularly with an 8 month old and working. We haven't even started planning since we're not sure who's coming still. Right now with have a Cat 3 booked for the 4 of us, but my brother and grandmother may be joining us. This will be the first cruise with our son (who will be 15-16 months at sailing) so things will be very different for us. No diving this time and more family activities. We'll still do high tea, brunch and a Palo's dinner (can't give those up), but our shore excursions will be very different.
Speaking of which, I need to get said son's passport done soon!

Well, as of right now, we have 7 people going, but we could get up to as high as 18 of us! We'll have to wait and see who joins in!

hi everyone...i just realized i haven't posted here since we changed our cruise date. we have moved our date to may so we have longer to save and also watch dd's school absences a little longer to be sure we're "okay" pulling her out. i hope all of you have a great time and i will surely be thinking about you that week...and probably wishing i had stuck with january so i didn't have to wait another 5 months!!!

We're going to celebrate our 30th anniversary - anyone else there for an anniversary?

Richard
WOO HOO! We'll be celebrating our 8th! I know it's not a milestone or anything, but sometime I feel like it could be a miracle of some sort!

I agree ... of course I'm obsessive early to everything person! I'm working on it in therapy ... kidding of course. I just think it's so cool that Disney is so keen on kids ... we'll have iPods for our kids so they can watch their movies and listen to their music ... but to think that they have other things for the kids is GREAT! LOVE DISNEY!

Also, we would love to sit with fellow DISers at dinner if anyone is interested. We have late seating and are a small family of 3. If you are interested send me a PM and we can see about linking our dinners together.

Jim
Sorry I'm so far behind everyone ... trying to catch up!

I tried to pm this to you but it said I didn't have enough posts so here it is:

Hey there ... I noticed that you were looking at maybe doing a pen pal thing for your 6 year old daughter ... my son just turned 7 last week and we'll be on the Jan 19, 09 Magic Eastern Carribbean cruise ... that could be lots of fun! We also have one who will be 6 at the time of the cruise. Let me know if you'd be interested!

I think it's so neat how they get post cards from Mickey every now and again ... they're so excited!

Take care,
Georji

WOW! Way to go TINK! That's amazing! We used our airline mileage and the 4 of us are flying down for $40.00 from Spokane, WA ... but that's using 100,000 miles!! You totally win!
