Have to work out the dreaded one way airfares though.

When I looked into it, the Disney airfare looked really good. The problem was no time to see Barcelona, as they have you fly in that morning. I do not think we will be able to take the cruise so I did not investigate whether they would book airfare for a day or two earlier though.

Joe and I are booked on the WBTA also and we are flying over on Thursday with Disney got the same airfare as if we were flying over on Friday and now we will have a full day in Barcelona

Now for our other news we maybe cancelling this cruise. Our good friends really want to do an Alaskan cruise and want us to join them in July. We are going to do the Alaska cruise and are still debating whether to cancel this cruise or do both. It is a hard decision especially with oldest DD getting married in Dec 09

That's a shame, but you know your circumstances. I hope you stay with us though.

Oh, Kathe....remember what I PM'd you about...well the rest of the team is A-OK with that plan should I have to go to the Hyatt.

Got the first vacation of the year booked today. A week in Chicago in May to play with sister Dianne, Cheri (who will be dog sitting for Ian & Sukie part of the time) and Ian & Sukie when they return from their WDW vacation. If three Tortolians gather in the same place.....does that make it a DIS MEET?

.
I love your team We'll see what happens, lots of planning time yet Three Tortolians definately mean an official dismeet! I only wish I could join in, but I'll be heading to disney world instead Funny you should mention trying out Citrocos. I have been considering this for my May trip. I love Jiko but have been a number of times, and I've been to CG a couple of times. I've only been to Citricos once, it was for a special Australian dinner during the Food and Wine Fest the first year I attended. It was a wonderful meal! I've always wanted to return to try out their regular menu.

Hope you don't have to cancel, but understand if you do. What a busy year this will be for you!

Hi Kathe!

I am under strict instructions to start thinking about our restaurant selections for our week before the cruise.

My assignment is to turn in a complete list, prioritized and forced rank.

I feel like I'm about to take the SATs.

Thanks Marilyn..it's been probably 10 years since we had an annual pass, so I guess that's why I didn't know about the TIW card. Sounds like it could be useful if we get an annual pass again. Congrats on the TA in Sept 2010. Had thought about that myself.

Hi John, good to see you here also. My wrist is much better than the last time you saw me , but not quite back to normal-if that is even possible. But I learned a valuable lesson about patience while I was healing, not to mention a renewed (sympathy) & admiration for everyone who has struggles like that everyday and manages.

Thanks for the info. I am not sure what kind of meal "deals" we will have, if any. I have done the dining plan numerous times in the past when it was called "the grand plan" or something like that. It used to include 3 sit down meals with appetizers, entree, and dessert, with 2 or 3 snacks a day. Plus it used to allow access to the concierge floor even if you weren't staying there. Like I said-it was a long time ago. Now we don't eat that much (except for desserts) so I think the flexible plan would be better for us.

Jan I'm so sorry that you and your family had it during your Christmas visit and that we were not able to get together. I hope you're feeling better now. I loved the pictures of Sophia.....thanks for sharing.

Oh and thanks so much for sharing the stomach flu too.....hahaha.....I had it really bad.....migrains, head spins, nauseous, chills, weakness.....it lasted almost a week also. Glad that I'm on the mend now and starting to feel a little better. I didn't mean to go MIA intentionally.....just couldn't lift my head off the pillow without getting violently ill. It wasn't pretty.
Welcome back Debbie-hope you continue to feel better. I started posting again, because our trip is coming up soon and it's time to plan. Can't wait for the Champagne Girls....will you let us know how much we owe you for whatever ?

Hi Cheri!!! We came very close to visiting Arizona in Feb. It would have been way down in Tucson for the jewelry show, but we would have traveled around the state some. We had to change our plans because Greg's having surgery in a couple of weeks. We are going to Vegas instead in April.

OK, here's a Question of the Day for everyone:

Where will you be staying the night before the cruise?


My family plan is to all stay together at the Hyatt...but I think there will be discussion later on to see if anyone else is coming early for a visit to WDW pre-cruise. Peg and Jose are thinking of staying after the cruise to see Cape Canaveral and Epcot. I'm hoping to convince them to do Epcot pre-cruise and Cape Canaveral post-cruise. Now, if anybody has DVC points to rent and I could get them into BC or Boardwalk Villas THAT would help!
I remember Peg enjoyed our stay for one night at Animal Kingdom, even without a park visit....and Magical Express from the airport is free....and we could then do group transportation to the port with some DIS pals....limo/mini van/private bus. How am I doing on the 'persuasions'?
Hi Jackie...we don't have definite plans, but would like to do either military discount at SOG, or buy 4, get 3 free at one of the resorts.

Ah, but you have till about JUNE SIXTH to complete the assignment. AND you will be there in May for a 'field test'.
