Until when will you be here??

I'm around starting on the 12th (really midnight the 10th-11th but will be worth nothing on the 11th) if you want to do a mini-meet

I figure we will discuss that when we're sitting in your living room in a few weeks. I think we should go wherever we can cause the most trouble.

Villas at Wilderness Lodge. Yes, the 4th (early afternoon for the boys, early evening for the girls). Kathe doesn't arrive till the afternoon before the cruise 9/11.

My meetings are DONE for the year and now I can focus on MY LIFE! I cannot tell you what a great feeling it is - to know that all that hard work finally in EVERY WAY paid off. It was fun standing at the Pioneer Village looking around at the people I work with that are usually so uptight and critical - to see them with branding irons in their hands, smiles on their faces and hearing laughter! Watching them play "quick draw" and throwing tomahawks - after their cattle drive and hay ride! One of the Regional Managers, grabbed my arm and pulled me up to the bar and we did a shot of Tequilla! Holy Schmoly! It was so worth it. Earlier in the day my boss before thanking everyone for coming, personally gave me KUDOS in front of everyone. Just like he did the first year... boy it's nice to be back on track!

Last night when they boarded the bus (to take them back to the hotel from their big extravaganza event) to see the look on Mike's (boss) face - when the Directors (our customers who are VP's, President's and CEO's of their companies) made it a point to hug me and thank me for all my hard work (including the wives) I was on - the wives of my own COMPANY don't treat me like that! Well, except for my boss - his wife is WONDERFUL!!!!

Anyway, not trying to toot my own horn, I'm just so darn thankful it went without a hitch and I got to meet a "new" group of Director's and their wives. I think this year was the best yet!

NOW - on to truly important business - the business of planning MY / excuse me - OUR cruise!!!!

Does anyone know how I can find out what rental car options are at the TERMINAL for pick-up. I will compare only those - and make it easier. I know Avis is one - is there a link maybe? I think it might be time for me to do some RESEARCH!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
Congrats Peg Sounds like you did a wonderful job. It's so nice that you were recognized for all of your hard work. I'm glad you can relax now and do some fun planning for yourself

Kathe

Things to be done by 6/14

Transfer reservation to TA
Pay for cruise
Buy trip insurance
Decide on excursions

And the week PRIOR to that...decide on WDW ADRs

Your list looks very similar to mine
I've been trying to decide whether I should transfer my ressie or not. Since I have the following week booked too, and since my daughter is flying down to join me for the 2nd cruise, I'm a little worried about her having problems if there's bad weather. We booked our airfare ourselves. Does anyone think it would be easier for her to deal with DCL directly if there were problems because of weather? I know they won't hold the ship if she's late in any case, I'm just trying to decide if there is any reason we would be better off sticking with the DCL ressie She is arriving the night before.

Monica, can you stand the excitement What is the date you are leaving? I bet you will have such a wonderful cruise, you have been looking forward to this itinerary for so long!

I'll see you on the 16th right? If you want to meet up one evening let me know. I'll be staying at CSR.

Thanks so much! I have been having some fun the last few days figuring out which car to rent, what days we'll be doing what and I just found out my friend Kitty (is joining us for the Holy Land Experience) while we are there in Orland. She lives about 1 hour south... we graduated together and it was good to see her last Sunday!

The Travel Kit is a brown folder with a booklet made out of quality cardstock showing gifts, trip insurance, formal wear hire, talking about making reservations and what to bring etc.

Oh and its also a reminder to pay the bill!

Got our travel kit this week. Oldest ds brought in the mail and asked why DCL was sending us such a big letter if we were going on Carnival. So I think maybe the big kids are getting wise...

Dh is back to his civilian job and all of the people he supervised (who were a great team), were transferred to other supervisors who won't give them up, so he has all new people who don't have such good on the job reputations. He's happy about it though, because he says he'll have to do lots of overtime so he can drink more on the cruise and maybe have an extra massage. Yeah, like that will happen after leaving me home with 4 home schooled kids for 12 months. I'm locking him in the cat 11 with all four of them and hitting the spa and the bar for a day or two.

If anyone going to Disney before the trip happens to stay at AKL- if you see the new villas I'd love to hear about them. We're staying there Wed-Thurs before the cruise.
