Welcome, lucky for you you exceeded the 99 required to join. Think of the others as something to shoot for now that you're a member. Kind of like achievement badges.

Welcome from the club's southernmost Canadian (I think). Lived across from Square One in Mississauga for 8 years before moving closer to the mouse in 2002.

Ya'll take care.
Get the place warmed up for me, we're spending the weekend fine tuning the plans for the trip.

I wish we could make a couple of right turns right now...
Umm...who's driving?

How nice that would have been. We first looked at them on our honeymoon. I'd just spent about $4,000 on that trip - and it would have been great because back then they had a deal where part of your current stay cost could be applied to the purchase price - but she didn't even want to spend money that hadn't been set aside and budgeted for that trip on souvenirs - just being married and all. She has always been the more frugal of the two of us, but finally agreed it was a worthwhile since we go so much. Too bad though, since the price had nearly doubled from then til when we actually did join. After 3 add-ons later I just say oh well, and so does she.

So many teenagers work in the hospitalty business that business owners get very short staffed if they have to go back to school and can't work that last weekend of summer) Anyway, there are so many loopholes to that law the most school districts start before labor day anyway. We don't want Madison to miss the first week of first grade. We plan on using DVC points too, but we're borrowing a bunch from 2011 for our December stay, so waiting a year or so should allow us to get a better cabin too.
Oh I hear you - you definitely don't want to let her miss the first week! That would just stink for her.

We've been going back and forth about the cruise thing for 3 years now and kept putting it off. Finally with the new DREAM and the lower point cost we decided it was time. Our eldest will be in school then too (vs the flexibility of home-schooling as he currently is), but he'll only miss a couple of days vs. pulling them out for a week or something as some people might do. We had to pick a time that wasn't going to be too detrimental and not overly costly points-wise. So that's what we chose. Hopefully it all works out well.

Bad News!

After placing the order for my DIS Dad's T-shirt, I received some bad news. My order could not be processed, apparently because modifying a Disney image is a copyright infringement. I guess the Disney items they sell can be ordered as is but not modified. SORRY ABOUT THAT!!!
Back to the drawing board.

Have you tried a design where the Disney image not modified in any way, but has text either on the opposite side of the shirt or in a different location?

No, but I did wonder about that. I would have to email them to see how that works. I'll do that. My assumption is that anything in the Disney line belongs to Disney and probably has to be printed as is.

Hey, DADS! It's been crazy busy here... hope you all have had a great Easter day! I'll be working on the new DDC IV thread tonight getting it ready for release soon. You "chatty Cathys" are really making this thread move! Looking to see what can be done to spruce up the place... the beer can pyramid is looking a little dusty.
