Haha; Wendy isn't a cougar, she's just mature. She turned 7 months last Thursday already!

How fun to be planning with your cousin! I wish I had another Disney enthusiast in the fam to do something like that with; I can't wait to hear where you decide to stay!

I am waiting, waiting, waiting on that stupid website to update!

Wow! Seems like you are getting a GREAT deal on your plane ticket!!! I wish we could fly JetBlue out of where I live. It is always so cheap!

The picture of the pup in the laundry is priceless!

I can't wait for it to update, it's driving me nuts! I need to realign everything and I can't do it unless I have the schedule!

JetBlue usually works out to be a decent deal. I do really like flying them, so I'm glad they fly out of this area!

Ok! A December update!

If I failed to mention it before, my cousin did the College Program with Disney, so she knows a bunch of people down there. She's trying to see if one of her friends can get us a CM discount on the room. After much debate, we've settled on All Star Movies, Preferred. (Sound familiar ) If her friend can't get the CM discount, then we'll just use my PIN. It's incredible, with either discount, we're probably going to be spending about $30 each per night for the room...or just shy of $100 for the weekend We thought about doing a deluxe, since the location would be awesome and it wasn't that expensive with us splitting it (around $100 each/night.) But $30/night v $100/night...hmmm...we went with the cheaper option. Figured this way we can do 2 sit down meals (thinking the Wave and one of the new Epcot ones) AND MVMCP! ...and probably still not make up that $200 difference!

So to wrap up, we've decided to stay cheap & indulge.

Although I'm not a fan of hte values, I think what you are doing is perfect! Extra food, tickets, etc.

What's funny is that I don't really care too much when it comes to rooms. I might have if it were a week long trip...then I'd splurge because I'd probably be using the pool, etc. But for a 3 day trip? Eh, as long as I have a clean place to shower and sleep, I'm happy!

It's funny planning it with her since she's a Disney fanatic too. I'm used to planning things where the other person has no idea what I'm talking about!

So...how about some October news? We got the email today for our Meeting down in Orlando. Our original "save the date" had the meeting going from Sept 27-Oct 1 (the week right before we were planning.) The email today has it from Sept 27-Sept 30 (Thursday instead of Friday.) So now I need to see if A) they'll pay for my plane ride back on the 9th and B) if I'll need to take Friday 10/1 off I'm in sales and I have a home based office, so considering I'd be out of the office for 4 days, I'd really need an office day at the end to get back to people/get caught up. So if I were home, I'd be using 10/1 as an office day. But in order to get them to extend my flight, I might have to take that Friday off I'd be hanging around my parent's place on Friday, with my work laptop, so it makes sense to me to just use an office day that Friday. But I might not be allowed to do that I sent an email out to my boss, so pixie dust & fingers crossed that things work out the way I want!!

In other news...apparently Rochester just got an earthquake (about an hour ago.) I didn't feel a thing and now I'm bitterly disappointed that I missed it.

Thanks! I'm anxious to hear the verdict!





For anyone else going during F&W, I found out through arbolita's PTR that the 2010 Food & Wine Thread here on the DIS has started: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2482006 Lot's of good information there, plus people who are F&W regulars that are very helpful with planning!
