I have a good excuse I had a nephew to get married in Arkansas. Then another nephew graduated from Ga. Tech(mechanical engineer). Plus all the Christmas planning and decorating, make for busy days and not much Dis time.

Once again I loved going to Disney with your family by reading your trip report. I look forward to the upcoming PTR.
Ah, congratulations to your nephews! We are brainwashing Connor to attend GA Tech! We even bought him a Yellow Jackets shirt for Christmas! LOL! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

Looking forward to the PTR. I can't believe you already have a title! That's the hardest part for me. I'm working on one though!!

Wishing you and your family a very
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
Merry Christmas, Sheree! It took a lot of thinking and brainstorming to come up with my title, but I think I really like it.

CSR is a great moderate with deluxe features. You get all the in room amenities of a deluxe, separate shampoo and conditioner, lotion, real cups with the coffee maker and queen beds. They have a food court and a sit down restuarant as well as the grab and go. With the dining plan, you will get the best bang for your buck at Pepper Market.

As far as resorts you have deluxe inside with a moderate outside and price.

I look forward to hearing all about the experience.
Hi, Pat! We stayed at CSR (before the refurb) in 2008 and really liked it! I am looking forward to being at the pyramid pool again! LOL!

I am honestly leaning more towards 4th of July time. We're going on the Dream in February, so it's not like I won't get a Disney fix then. I am going to talk to my sister and brother over Christmas this week and see what their thoughts are. I am thinking that if plane tickets are a good deal, we'll fly; otherwise, we'll make a road trip of it and make the trek down from Iowa. I like road trips anyway and it would probably save me about $500 in plane tickets, at least.

Now I am off to find the price on a room at Pop and check the DVC point charts, in case we would want to rent points. What are the chances that a Pin Code or a promo would come along for July? Well, a girl can dream!
Planning Disney trips is so much fun, isn't it, Katie?

You could even pay separately for Blizzard Beach or Typhoon lagoon, if you like to do those, and that wouldn't be as much as a park ticket. You could go over to Fort Wilderness and do the campfire & movie and see the horse barns. There would be plenty to do that would make for a much cheaper but still awesome trip, and you'd get to have the DIS meet with Anita and Jackie!
You make me want to head down to Disney right now, MeMom! LOL!

Thanks, Doris! Merry Christmas to you, too! We did have a wonderful Christmas, and the snow didn't make things too rough here in Atlanta. Not like the ice last week.

Merry Christmas to you all!

We did get our white Christmas! So exciting! The kids and Charles had a great time making snowmen and pelting each other with snowballs. I had the camera so escaped the worst of the snowballs. LOL!

Yes, Charles was shamelessly bearing a Mickey sticker. Maybe next trip we can manage some Mouse ears for him!

The PTR is starting soon -- a veritable geek-fest of Star Wars allusions. LOL!

Stay inside and stay warm, Jen! I was watching the blizzard yesterday on the Weather Channel! Crazy!

I am pretty sure about twenty heads spun in our direction, but since my entire field of vision was bathed in the red glow of fury, I can’t be completely sure.

Suffice it to say, my own voice dropped about ten notches becoming all throaty and low as I said, “Go take it off right now. We are leaving.”



for real... L-O-L

I actually made it over, in time to get caught up, to have it end!

Sigh. Such has been the last 6 weeks of my life!

What a great trip. I love love love your summary and oh oh oh feel the pain of those teenage girl "moment's!" so exited that we get to go straight into a PTR!

Hi, Cynthia! I totally understand the craziness of the past six weeks. It went by in a blur -- in fact, the library told me I had a book that was due on December 7 which I was convinced I had renewed only to realize after I pitched a diva fit that they were right -- I had never renewed it.

Teenage girl moments are something else!

Thanks, Katie! I know what you mean -- we loved our couples trip in October 2009, but going with the kids adds so much more -- sometimes not so good, but overall wonderful!

I am actually a tad bit worried about this next trip -- it will be hard to top the summer trip!
