When I see you on the 13th be sure to tell me what you had for lunch at the Brown Derby. The menu looks so good that I'm not sure what I'll order.
Schedule? What schedule? You're on vacation Angela! Just Kidding, sorry you can't make it, but we'll see you at Crystal Palace and LeCellier!

Packing is my least favorite thing about traveling. The good news is that since it's just me, I will only have to pack 1/3 as much as I normally do.

I was thinking about packing everything into a carry on bag and doing during the trip, but I doubt that I'll do that.
I was thinking the same thing....what to pack I'll be there 12 days so I will be doing half way during the trip....have to look good for the ADRs.

I thought you guys were staying at the Wilderness Lodge.

By the way, are you going back in Sept for free dining? Mark and my mom say they're not going back this year, but they always say that, then change their minds at the last minute. I booked the bounceback offer last Sept when we were all there, but changed my dates last week to Sept 26th-Oct 4th. I think Kat and ANTS are going to be there the same week. That's not why I changed my dates though. I just decided I wanted to be there for the start of the Food & Wine Festival. YUM!! I'll probably also be going back in Dec. need to check for sure when POP Warner is there. I usually try to arrive the weekend they are leaving. lol

Actually we are both right Vanessa - We are staying in WL in May (Because it was already paid for before Adrian inherited the DVC.) We will be staying at BLT in December.

I don't think we are going to Hawaii this year after all , so it's conceivable that we could go to WDW in September - I'll see what Adrian thinks.

Rich -

I can't help it! I am a Type A personality and I have to plan. I am trying to relax this trip since its just me. I always tour "commando-style" so it will be nice to slow down a bit.

I don't use the pools, so the pool amenities mean nothing to me. I seldom use the restaurant at my resort, so again those mean nothing to me. However, I do like the ceiling fans, covered bus stops, and the boats to DTD and, for this trip at least, was willing to pay the $222.00 to upgrade from my preferred room at AS Movies to POFQ to get them. Call me strange, but it was really the covered bus stops that made me switch. Now the year I rented DVC points and stayed in a studio at BW was great. I spent most of my time that trip at Epcot for the Flower Festival and it was great being able to just walk over there. Seriously I think you'll love POFQ. I've stayed there a couple of times before and just love it. The CMs are all so great and so very friendly. If we both get back from the parks in time, maybe we can go hear the jazz musician over at the Scats Club and don't forget they have bignets in the food court. YUM!!!



All the parks that have character breakfasts have an early morning character bus to get the guests to them. If you call WDW dining they'll know nothing about them, but believe me they're there. I've used them for years. In fact we had an early morning breakfast almost every day when I was there in Sept and we used them. I've also used them for almost every tour I've taken. I've also used them just when I've wanted to get to the parks early to take some pictures. You are supposed to be there for the tours at least 15-30 minutes early I believe, so I'd be waiting at the bus stop by 7:15-7:30am. Believe me an AK bus will come along and what's great is they are always almost totally empty.
Yah that Vanessa she's a troublemaker when it comes to upgrading... she loves to spend other peoples money !!! HA HA!!!

Sounds great! I'm not sure if anyone is coming with me on that trip. I'll just have to wait and see.

Oh guys, I could really use some pixie dust right now. It's been a terrible last couple of days. Thursday my younger son and D-I-L got taken to court by her parents and lost. Long story, but they are both a basket case right now and swear they hate her parents and will never speak to them again. I went to court with them and as soon as we got out, I called my elder son to let him know how it came out and he sounded so depressed. He said that it was just turning out to be a horrible day all the way around. When he showed up for work that morning they were told the company was downsizing and either people were going to be laid off or else everyone's hours were going to be cut, neither option of which he can afford. Just before I called him, his best friend (since first grade) called him to tell him he'd just gotten laid off and had no prospects. This friend and his wife just bought a house last year, had a baby in November, and the wife quit work and just started back to school. They don't know what they're going to do. It was just a bad day all day. Then the final blow fell that evening when my elder son again got a call. His other best friend (again since first grade) had shot himself in the head. Apparently he and his wife had been seperated for the last two months and she served him with divorce papers Thursday. He was only 30 years old and left two year old and a seven year old sons. My elder son is now as big a basket case as my younger son and D-I-L are. He's been asked to be a pall bearer for the funeral this weekend and says he has no idea how he's going to do it. He and Matt have been best friends for the last 24 years. His parents were also our neighbors for that long. That kid lived at my house growing up. I loved him as much as my own sons and just can't believe he would do something like this. He and his dad were both volunteer firemen, and of course he spent his entire life in the same small town, so everyone knew and loved the family. The whole community is just in shock. Between his younger brother's problems with his in-laws, his problems at his own job, his best friend losing his job, and now his other best friend committing suicide all in the same day, my elder son is not coping well. To top matters off my younger son's son turns four tomorrow and we have a birthday party to go to in the morning before the funeral. There's too many people coming from out of town to cancel it, so we have to act happy for a couple of hours, before going to a funeral.
