The trip we did, they lost our reservation and had to put us in a temporary room..that turned into our permanent room...but house keeping didn't know... Anyway, so I am hesitant, but I would really like to be close to the Classic Hall...and on a top floor. I think a good chunk of the resort is not refurbed...so maybe that wont matter as much. (except in the 50's since I read that is not done yet)

I was worried about not getting a request if I asked for one and then being disappointed. This way I'll just be surprised. And with the things I've heard lately, I worry about requesting too much. I'm not sure if you read about this on the Dis or not but a lot of people who were staying at POP last week got called a couple days before they were supposed to leave saying they were being switched to All Stars because POP overbooked by 400 rooms due to a computer issue. But some people were upgraded to CR and SSR. Others were switched to preferred rooms at All Stars. I haven't seen anything regarding this about the time I will be there but still keeping an open mind just in case.


I would be worried too. I have no experience with Happy Limo...so I can't help you there, but it does sound prudent to order with Garden Grocer...just in case.

I decided it would be easier and cheaper if I brought the poptarts and some snacks from home. Then just get the rest like sodas and water at the grocery stop.That way if it is a Hess, I won't have to worry about finding the things that we want.

It will be a busy week for you. In case I don't get a chance to wish you a good trip... Have a good trip! As I mentioned, I can't wait to hear all about it! (you are doing a trip report, right? )

Yes, I will be doing a TR and thank you. And if I don't get a chance to tell you before I get back, have a fun trip, too!

As for the school issues.. I am battling with that myself. I can't believe school starts up so early this year. That combined with work (I will have over 40 hours this week) and planning/getting ready for the trip, I am struggling to get the two younger ones ready...and Zoe will flat out miss some of the first days.

I actually took care of the school stuff today. They gave me the school schedules over the phone and were really nice about the kids starting late and had no issues with it whatsoever.

This day's plans are nice...they look laid back and very enjoyable. I think you were right on the ADR change too. My dh is kinda "whatever" when it comes to Disney too. So when he shows an interest, I jump on it. Plus...I think TD will be a better dinning option. I ate at Chefs last trip and really...I wasn't all that impressed.

I hope you still get your dinner reservation for Le Cellier! I will keep my fingers crossed for you. For your Planet Hollywood, are you planning to use the voucher in the trip docs? I have never used that before. Just for aps might be a good use of it. I had never thought of that (assuming you can use it for that)

Well, as I said...enjoy your trip!!!
Thanks for the Le Cellier wishes. At this point, I feel lucky to even have an ADR there at all. I ate at Chefs before, too, and it was ok but not memorable like other places I've eaten at WDW.

I was going to use the voucher for PH. I believe the only restrictions are that you can't use it on alcohol drinks, souvenirs and with the DDP. Other than that I think it's pretty open so I decided on using it for apps as a big snack/light lunch.

I think your final ADRs look great, but I'll keep my fingers crossed for that Le Cellier ressie for you too. Your to-do list is do-able packing drives me nuts.... I'm a leave it to the last second kinda gal.

I hadn't heard about the Pop computer glitch! I love the Pop.... I wouldn't want the All Stars switch but the CR or SSR upgrade would be sweet!

If I don't get back here before you go.....

Have a FABULOUS trip and say hi to Mickey for me!

So here we are, 8 hours until we are boarding the train and on our way to Disney. We will arrive Saturday morning around 10:55am. So far only Haylee has been getting much sleep tonight. Thursday morning, we ran errands, packed, had lunch and then took a nap until late evening when I made dinner. We did an easy laid back dinner of pepperoni pizza hot pockets and tater tots. Then we did more packing, more laundry, girly beauty prepping like painting our nails, and watched "Bambi". Now I am debating as to whether I should take a nap or not. I am thinking it would be a good idea since that whole 6 hour layover in Raleigh but just not sure. Plus Alleyah can't sleep due to being excited and worried that we might oversleep and miss the train. I think we will be fine when it comes to that. Our train leaves at 12:57pm. I plan on getting to the station at around 11:45am to check our bags. The train station is small so that still gives us a large amount of time. Plus the train station is only 1 mile from our house. The only things I have to left to do before we leave is pack my phone and charger (since phone is charging), make sure we all have blankets for the train, pack cooler with drinks and snacks for the train, pack DFi's extras like contacts and meds, give MIL our reservation and hotel info, and feed the cat (MIL will feed him while we are away). Thank you all so much for reading along and commenting. I can't wait to share our trip with you when we return. I'm sure I will have lots to tell you. See you when we get back on Aug 29th!

Hi state neighbor! I just got caught up reading your whole PTR! I've enjoyed reading it.
That is so cool that you're taking a train to WDW, I would love to do that! I hope you take plenty of pic of your train ride.
My daughter, Lexi & I, are HUGE Twilight fans too!
I loved looking at all your trip purchases. I bought the Bath & Body hand sanitizers for our trip this past weekend.
I hope you have success with your CNA job hunting. It can be miserable working at a job that you don't like.

You're in WDW right now, I'm jealous! I hope ya'll are having a great time!
Take plenty of pictures to post & I can't wait until you get back & read your TR!

Here is the link to my TR: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....5#post38036065

I won't be able to post much more today since photobucket is being super slow with uploading my pics. But I should be able to post more tomorrow.
