WHAT?! No!!!!

Seriously?! Your new TR is already on page 3?! I need to log on more often. Great start, you always make me laugh. Maybe one day you'll make it further south on I-95, maybe for a trip with DCL?

You had me cracking up reading your update - I love your sense of humor!

I need to learn some of your tricks, we usually go for 2-3 days also and have NEVER been upgraded! I'll work on my smile.

And so true about the dogs. We have three and I often joke that their pet sitting fees are more than my resort charges!

Can't wait for more!

You are a lucky duck so when I go next time I am going to have you check me in. It's that southern charm you know us New Englander's are lacking in that dept.

I'm here! I'm so behind - already on page 3! That is so cool you got the upgrade - best place to get one! I always book Standard view, too - but at AKL I booked Savannah view and then asked for my friends the giraffes at check-in - I love giraffes! That was the whole reason I wanted to stay there.

You are starting out so funny - "poodle view" Can't wait for more!

Still up in the air on the move...... After a nice relaxing evening by the pool last night, I'm against the move.

Oh, dont' get me started on DCL - I caught Jeff studying up on it - bathroom reading material ya know......

Bucky does so well at the kennel/vet AND I always have his shots and exams done while he's there. That way I'm not the bad guy holding him while he gets his shots! See? Always thinkin here!

Just don't threaten to have the CM's "whacked" and you'll be okay! OH, wait, you're not from NJ!

We had a giraffe right outside our room at one time! We kept joking about it, and then while Jeff ws in the shower we looked out and it was RIGHT THERE!!! He didn't believe us and almost missed it!

OMG...I am new to the dis but have been reading for the last couple months because my husband and i (31 and 27) are planning our first trip ever with our almost 5yr DD and 2yr DS this sept-oct, when I found your upgrades and underwear TR...i about split my gut reading it and just got done reading the beginning of this one. You are such a funny writer and I am thoroughly enjoying reading this one already...I especially loved the comment about your husband and the dino phobia...LOL...that pic was really funny! Just wanted to let you know you have another follower for this TR..I love getting all you vet. disers points of view on the place I have been dreaming of for my whole life.

(My family thinks I may be a little too old to be so in love with all things Disney so its nice to find people out there that know Disney is the only way to go!!)

Glad to have found your TR. I have been lucky too. My first trip I got upgraded to a water view corner unit. The second trip was a land and sea one. Well just days before the cruise I got a call if I was ok being upgraded to a suit, um let me think HECK YA! So we had this great suit and concierge service. When we arrived at POR we didn't get a special upgrade at first. We actually had one of the farthest rooms but I had some real trouble with swelling this trip, thank goodness for flip flops. When we finally made it down to our room I called to see if by chance they had a closer room due to my swelling. They said yes we do it's in the Mansions if that is ok? Sure not a problem with me. We got bumped to a beautiful room with a water view again. Oh and we had gotten the dinning plan with circ tickets, but we really didn't care to see it as we have several here in Vegas. So we got lucky with Disney Credit for the tickets as they were on a break. Score extra spending money!!

Maybe we should pool our mojo, we might be in a deluxe suite at the GF before too long!!!!

When we upgraded our 7 day PHs into season passes last year, not only did we get the passes, but I think the CM misfigured something because we also got a $250 gift card for the "difference"! The funny part is that my inlaws had paid for the entire week long trip, so to upgrade the tix, AND get the gift card, it was like, "thank you inlaws!" Our first year's passes cost us NOTHING! Now the renewal on the other hand......
