Hope Kyle's feeling okay. I love your new goodies for the trip. It looks like you've got some great places to try on your list.

I'm excited about the list; I thought about wandering further off the beaten path but I'm still such a newbie at knowing where everything is on the resort, keeping to the monorail line seemed to be easiest!

Kyle is way sick. It's the swine flu for sure. His temp was 102.2 this morning, but is controlled by over the counter meds. He's drinking cold fluids like it's going out of style, so as long as he keeps that up and doesn't get lethargic or dehydrated I won't worry. The virus mutates so fast that it's impossible for a doctor to do anything for the flu itself; all we can do is treat the symptoms.

It IS weird to see my ADHD teenager laid up in bed for days though. That is SO out of character for him.

I'm here! Great PTR so far.

The DDP is so totally worth it for only $200 total more. You'll love it and you did score some great ressies, esp since the 90 day mark passed -- le Cellier, O'hana -- woo Hoo!!

Add me to the list of "I can't believe your 14 yo doesn't want to go to Disney!" I wonder if he'll sing a different tune after a few days...oh well, like you said, it'll be good for him to get away from the girls and be on his own for a bit.

And it's not like you're never going back again, right??

Finally made it over, and am loving what I'm seeing so far!

Like others have said you really scored some great ADRs!!

I can totally relate to Kyle's 'tude. I have an 18 yr. son that went with us last time. Two whole days he opted to stay back at the Fort just to chill and swim. Boys just really need some space when they get older, I guess.

Your girls will really like ASMo, and if it keeps Jose happy, then that's definitely the route to take. Keep them happy, I say; do nothing to jeopardize any future forays onto Disney property!

Tea sounds fabulous! So girlie- yet, I hear many, many men enjoy the elegance of it as well.

WOW! You are from Nashville?? Where were you last April when we had our meet at Opryland Mall??!! My whole fam. lives in BGreen, KY, we could meet next Sept. before our trip, if you're up for it!!! I'll have to PM you!! That would be an awesome start to my trip!!

Last year, it took us 12 hours, in a whole bunch of driving rain, to get from Knoxville to Orlando. We were told it'd take 8- WHAT.A.JOKE! Not in a million years!

Okay, enough for now. Keep your updates coming!

Hello and hurray! lol I'm kind of shocked that we got some of the ressies we did; Le Cellier is and Tusker house are lunches, but we got everything else as dinners. I'm just looking forward to sitting down at a guaranteed time every day, rather than fighting through QS lines and searching for tables. Oh joy...

I know, I know... Kyle had a good time in January to be sure, but I think most of it was to make me happy. He is such a mama's boy, he'd do anything I asked him to. Even take pictures with princesses and teddy bears. He'll have a better time having the living room to himself to watch science fiction movies, staying up as late as he wants and eating junk food for a week straight. Oh to be a teen. lol

And we are definitely going back again! I think when we do go back I may look into renting DVC points since there are so many of us; having four kids kind of limits your choices without breaking the bank before you even get there!

Well hello and hurray to you, too! Thank you!

You feel my teenage angst, eh? Yeah, he'd rather just hang out at home this time around, but hopefully he'll at least want to come along for the ride next time.

And you're right about ASMo... I was just meh about the choice but I'm ultimately happy my DH wants to go at all! I mentioned the trip in passing and the next thing I know he's pricing it out! Can't beat that.

I was here in April, but I didn't know about the meet! Dang! I may be up your way before next September; my Dad really really really wants to see the Corvette factory and we keep putting it off; I've been here since 2005 and I've never been to Kentucky!

We were in Knoxville last May to go to Dollywood; that was the year the mountains killed my transmission!

re: DVC -- I'm a believer!!

We just bought into DVC a few years ago and it has TOTALLY transformed the way we do Disney, how often we go, how much we enjoy it, etc.

I'd definitely look into renting points.

We were lucky...my DH switch jobs and had to liquidate his stock in the old company...we decided to purchase DVC with it -- best decision we ever made and it came right before the market crashed -- so it was a smart financial decision too!

You seriously did luck out by cashing out when you did! Man... We just took our first trip to the World this past January, and my husband is now hooked. DVC is totally on our short list of 'to do' items for the near future!

First and foremost, thank you all for asking about Kyle. He's holding steady with a temp of about 100.8 under medication... don't ask what it is when he wakes up in the morning after a night without medication.

Anastasia woke me up at 5:20 this morning to tell me her 'neck hurt'. Yep, she's got a sore throat. UGH. At least it looks like we'll get the swine flu out of the way before this winter, and better yet before our trip in November! I would be a nervous wreck worrying about it the whole time, and now at least they'll have immunity against the virus and can enjoy themselves. (Not that I won't be traveling with handi wipes, antibacterial gel, Lysol spray...)

But everyone's in bed now, lulled to sleep in a Nyquil haze so I can finally jump online long enough to tell you we got our MVMCP tickets today!

It's finally feeling real, friends... cause you know it doesn't feel that way till you start getting Disney mail, and here it is!





By the by, today is 65 days till Disney!

They're awesome, right? I thought they might just be cardboard or something but they're like the KTTW cards. Now I have to stash them away with Kyle's tickets to the Paramore concert so no one can find them!

Actually, I don't even live in the US! Sorry for the confusion! I live in Central Asia, but will be moving back in about 2 years. We'll probably end up in Oregon, but my whole family lives in KY. Both of my older kids want to go to university there, so I'm sure I"ll be visiting Bowling Green often. Which, in fact, get me closer to WDW!

Congrats on your Mickey Mail- love those tickets!!

Well heck! I lived in Oregon for about 7 years; beautiful country! (And I miss the lack of humidity!)

Hopefully we'll be able to meet at some point then... because I doubt I'll be in Central Asia anytime soon. lol

Today is my only son's fourteenth birthday, and his birthday present is to not have a fever for the first time in five days! His temp was 99.7 which, after temps of 101 and 102 sounds GORGEOUS.

Happy birthday, Kyle-o!

(That being said, I woke up with a sore throat and Stasia has a temp of 101.6... Ugh.)
