Hi,
Just started reading your pre-trip and it sounds like fun so far. My family and I are going May 4 - 10 and we are staying at the POP, it will be the kids first trip ever to Disney and they are pretty excited. I was wondering what type of crafts you do? Can't wait to read more!!

Your plans and ADR's look great! I love the theme of the trip of the "2's". I'm really looking forward to seeing the crafts you come up with. You are a very crafty woman! I have to make my way to the craft store soon so I can make my own tye-dye shirts!

Looking forward to more!
Welcome! It looks like your're going to be in WDW just a few days after us! What are your dates?

I've been trying for 2 weeks now to get a room on Priceline for our May 3 night. If you remember, in Sept I got $45/night and was pleased...thought I'd have to pay more for May.

Anyway, I started at $35 for a 3* (highest star rating on Priceline for Walt Disney World area) and kept increasing by $1 or $2 each time.

Today my bid was accepted for $45. That seems to be the magic number!

We will be staying at the Radisson Worldgate Resort. And besides being a really cool place only 1 mile from WDW, they have Sleep Number Beds!!! This is the bed we have at home since I had back problems (herniated disc) over a year ago!! Woo Hoo!!! I'm so excited!

Has anyone stayed at the Radisson Worldgate Resort?

UPDATE: Just checked out the DIS review for this hotel and it SUCKS!!!! People have paid anywhere from $45 to $75 for this hotel on Priceline and most agree it's an old, bad hotel!!

oh well! We are only there one night for about 12 hours total -- including the time we sleep, so it can't be that bad, right??

This may be the very first time Priceline fails me...

No one from the DIS wrote on the message board but we did get a lot of notes from fellow guests, the manager of the resort and the maids. Two people left pins for us (and I don't even collect them!) and 2 people (prob kids) left a "not-nice" message (one said "Mickey is pooping and the other said we were gay for doing the message board so I changed the word "gay" to "g'day" to make it more friendly!)

I would take the notecards with writing on them inside every time I saw one. I think we had about 5 or 6 people write a Disney greeting on them.

Here is the pic of it decorated:

Shame some kids had t o ruin that by writing not so night stuff on there,. But you did great in making it look more friendly

WTG in getting a good price on your hotel f or day one, but bummer it has bad reviews.

Like you said, at least it is only for one night.....not that big of deal

I love all the stuff you made. I haven't even started my scrapbook from our September trip yet. How do you find time with a two year old?

I don't clean my house -- I make crafts instead!!

Actually, my goal was to finish my Sept Disney scrapbook before my May trip -- not happening. I've prepared the pages (i.e., haven't put together) up through July 4th for other things but haven't gotten to our Sept Trip yet. Basically, I need to stop my scrapbook and start my Disney crafts very soon for May. Guess I'll be doing both Sept and May trips together!

So as you may have seen, today the Annual Pass discounts for room only came out for Disney. My first thought was "figures!" since I just got Priceline acceptance yesterday.

But it appears the discount for a value, room only is $89 plus taxes, so this is still much higher than our priceline room, so I still feel comfortable in what we got ... now come May 3 I may be having major regrets, but just how bad can a room be for one night??? right???

Oh, and the other news is that now people who have an Annual Pass can purchase the DDP w/o buying tickets or paying rack room rates!! This can be a large savings for those who eat a TS every day anyway!

I hope so! The reviews on the DIS were downright nasty -- mold, dirty, falling apart...some said it wasn't even a 1*

If nothing else, then I guess we will fall on our hands and knees while at the Beach Club Villas!

Ok, I figured out my "new" craft for this trip. Last year I created a Disney Activity book for my DD to help her learn about WDW.

This time I'm going to make a Disney ABC book...once again, it will be part learning activities for plane and part scrapbook. So each page will have Disney characters or rides or something to do with Disney on it and correspond to the letters of the alphabet.

So it'll teach her the alphabet and about Disney -- sounds good?!

I will also leave room so I can add photos later (like a photo of DD and Ariel for "A").

So now I need to start working on my list of letters...I think I will try for more than one Disney thing per letter.

Any/all help is appreciated!
