Thanks Remmy
Yep, it's at CBR!

We will be at SSR. On our return home day, we don't leave until 6:35(ish) pm. So we will be at a park that day. When we check out of our room, will SSR hold our carry-on stuff for us?
Yes, any WDW resort will hold your luggage for you. Just make sure to leave enough time to retrieve it before you need to leave. Sometimes there is a line and it takes awhile to get it.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for or not. . . . .

I know a lot of parents stress about this, mine certainly did. However I had to take out a loan. It really isn't that bad. It wasn't a huge loan, and my monthly payments are $50. I can have this paid off in 4 years. I'm paying off a little extra each time so it should be less than 4 years.

Have you been saving your change? I do that for anything. I have a container on my dresser and only silver coins go in, then before a trip I cash that in. I have over $87 and the trip isn't til Jan. Saving the coins might not make much of a huge difference in this time span, but over a few years it certainly will. So you could also encourage your children to do this too.

How long are you planning on going for? Is there anyway you could make it be just for a long weekend (if it's planned for longer)? Try little ways to cut back while on vacation. We only eat at "big" meals 2 or 3 times during our trip. The rest are counter service. We also bring in fruit snacks and granola bars with us so we don't eat snackie stuff during the day. Also my sister and I usually end up splitting some meals, like some of the garden salads, that are huge.

There certainly are ways to do Disney on a budget. But only you know if you should go or not.

I agree... taking out a few loans for college is not a horrible thing, just make sure she understands the loans before she takes them out. I am completely amazed at what some of the kids around me take out loans for. If she's young then you will have time to build up some more money... if college is right around the corner, then she should also be saving. I didn't save money for college and I really wish I had, but I'm still ending up with less loans than a lot of the people I know.
However, it really is up to you to decide whether or not you can justify the trip. If the only way she can go to college is by skipping the trip, then skip it. However, the time you spend together might be a lot more valuable to you after she's gone. I'm not saying book a suite in the Grand Floridian, but you can research ways to take the trip without breaking the bank...
First, to answer your question, my daughter is a sophomore in college, so we don't really have a lot of time to make up the lost money. We'll figure it out. And thanks for all the helpful hints!

I got a Mousesavers Hot Deal in my email this AM, and I was so excited! Until I saw that it didn't contain a code. Oh well, back to the wait.

Mana Liz-I'm totally jealous of you being at Birch Run and Bronner's today. I want to go back!!!
Oh...yeah that would be way too much Christmas Overload for me. Most of our start around Thanksgiving and then I'm okay with that because I love Christmas music. My favorite fun song is I want a Hippo for Christmas...I have the entire thing memorized..which speaks volumes for my character LOL!

Oh the day after Thanksgiving shopping...I so can't wait!!! It's going to be fantastic....what's the one thing you are hoping to find on sale this year??? I really want to get a GPS.

"Oh. Well... That'll be good too though, I guess!"

Heheheheheee. Silly Australian travel agent.
I agree Silly travel agent...I have never been to DisneyLand before so I have nothing to compare it to...but it is called DISNEY WORLD LOL!!!
