4 MONTHS TO GO!!!

ONLY - 4 MONTHS TO GO!!

And do ya know what that means???

Only 3 months until Danielle's 5th birthday!!

... and less than 2 months until Vicki's birthday !!

... and only about 1 month until Danielle starts kindergarten!!





[So I'd better get to work on my touring plans ... ]

Haven't had the chance to check Disney shopping on-line, but ...

I stopped by may favorite store in da whole world - the Disney Outlet in Jackson, NJ (and it's a REAL outlet!!) - on my way home from work tonight ... and picked up matching "Goofy" T's for me and the DD for only $5 each!

Well - mine's red, and her's is green - but they have the same design - but that also means we'll be wearing Christmas colors!!

They also had matching Pooh shirts for the DD and DW - but I passed cuz I didn't like them that much. Unfortunately, they didn't have the matching Minnie T in the DW's size ...

But that's OK - cuz the DW informed me she doesn't want any more Disney shirts ... What is wrong with her?!?

Oh, yeah - I also picked up another Grumpy short for me ... maybe I should go back and get one for the DW, too ... ??

I can relate: My Disney Outlet - and the regular store in the nearby mall - were on the original "hit list" - and I was major-league bummed - cuz I needed my weekly "Dis-fix" at the outlet ... but all turned out well, as they both have been saved ...

Stopped by Home Depot this morning for more mulch - and picked up a handful of Lime-green Mickeys!! (I was nice and left some for others to play with ...)

Go to this link, book the package with the link (don't pay, just see if it's available), then call the Disney Travel Agent. I tried it online first, then called, b/c if they said it wasn't available I was going to tell him it was. I get it for the first 3 nights of my stay which really helped.

Thanks - but it doesn't look like that will work for us ... we're staying at AKL from Dec 6-13 ... double whammy Deluxe and blackout dates ... And since we REALLY want to stay at AKL, I don't want to switch resorts ... but I will check with my AAA TA anyway ...

I've finally caught up with the DIS "December Code Watch" thread ... and then I went online to see what I could do ... and there were no rooms available for those dates at AKL ... (which I guess means - unless someone cancels - my brother's family won't be staying at AKL for a couple of nights ... I told them to book it months ago!! )

Also, based on what I've seen on the "Dec Code Watch" thread - it looks as if ALL of the WDW resorts are booked for our week in December ... So much for a "less crowded" time of year ...

But still - it has go to be better than the "Not So Great Adventure" day we spent today ... I'll give a full report when I have the energy (still recuperating 5 hours after leaving the park ...) but it boils down to this: minimum 90 minute wait for any of the rides the DW and I wanted to do (none of which are worth a 30 minute wait IMHO!! ) ... so we stuck to kiddie rides for the DD (5 minute waits ...), had a decent lunch, saw the tiger show (very cool - bought some ice cream and got VIP seats ...), and the DD and I stood under the "water tower" and got soaked !!!

"Great Adventure" opens at 10:30 - we got there about 11 ... and the DW and I were "toast" by 3 ...

Good morning!! (or afternoon ... or evening ... whatever is apropos to when you are reading this ... )

Hit the Disney Outlet yesterday after work and picked up a few things for our trip:

Matching Minnie t-shirts for the DW and DD - in hot pink!!

And - I got a Lightning McQueen backpack for me to carry stuff around ...

Used the 15% off coupon the Disney Visa folks just sent, too ...

It has two large compartments - one I can use for the video camera and dry clothes - the second for the wet stuff after Danielle "dives" into one (or more ...) of those interactive play fountains ... ...

... and a bunch of other little compartments to hold snacks, sunscreen, etc.

And - it's Lightning McQueen!! (pretty cool, huh?!?)

They also had Buzz and Pirates - but the Lightning backpack was the coolest (plus - in the movie - he got the Porsche!!)

In the next couple of weeks I'm gonna take stock of the stuff I've bought so far and see what else we need ...

Later ...

P.S. DD starts Kindergarten after Labor Day ... which means no more "Daddy and Danielle" Mondays ... ...

100 Days To Go!!!


Only 100 days to go!! ... (boy - did those 80 days since "ADR Day" fly ... )

I know - I wasn't gonna start counting days yet (and I'm not ...) ... but someone on the All Ears site posted that they had 102 days to go (2 days ago ...), so that got me thinkin' ...

The only other "days" countdown I have is at 90 days - when I have to book my seats, etc. with Spirit ... then I'll be back to "weeks" ...

So let's see - ... fortunately, I got an "A" in calculus, so 90 days from December 6 is ...

divide by 7 ...

subtract ...

nuthin' into nuthin is .... nuthin (that's for you Browncoats out there ... )

add ...

uh - about 10 days from now ... give or take a handful (or two) of hours, a bunch of minutes ... and a few seconds ...


I'm almost done with the Epcot-FW summary ... but we're going camping this weekend (and taking the with us ...) ... so I'll finish it next week ...

Have a great "Al Bundy Day" everyone ... !!! (for you "Married with Children" fans ...)
