Does Ace of Spades count for 2?

Nate ~ I think Princess Bride was added by GoofIsAsGoofyDoes. I definitely gave it a 2nd when I added Kelly's Heroes and Short Circuit.

We have 3 carriers (AirTran, SouthWest and Midwest/soon to be merged with Frontier) that fly direct from Milwaukee to Orlando. I'm on the email lists for AirTran and Midwest, so every once in a while I'll get notified of sales. SouthWest just started flying into Milwaukee, so I haven't had a chance to fly with them yet.

I check all three websites directly and book directly through their site. The prices always seem to be just a bit lower there than the online travel sites. Plus I'm eliminating the middle man, so there can't be any finger-pointing if something goes wrong.

So how about guys - what's your preferred method?
For Disney flights, I always check Southwest and Air Tran directly on their Web sites. I'm also signed up for email "dings" from both.

But the comfort of knowing Disney did the booking kind of puts me at ease.
Typically, we book our own vacations: room, flights, etc. We get room discounts through this forum; MouseSavers.com; or by a Disney postcard. We book our flights by checking Southwest and Air Tran's Web sites. We used to book a limo to/from the airport but the last trip we used the Magical Express and it was great. As for travel agents, I highly recommend Dreams Unlimited, right here on The DIS. They will get you the best room discounts, make your ADRs, and plan a whole itinerary it you'd like......all for FREE! They aren't really a travel agency, they are more like travel advisors, and it's a great service offered here on The DIS.

I have nothing against the Bruins, but could they PLEASE stop showing that Bobby Orr jump in the air goal where he put away my beloved St Louis Blues in the Stanley Cup finals.

Cinderella agrees to be home by 2 a.m. The appointed hour comes and goes, and Cinderella doesn't show up. Finally, at 5 a.m., Cinderella shows up, looking love-struck and **very** satisfied.

"Where have you been?" demands the fairy godmother. "Your diaphragm was supposed to turn into a pumpkin three hours ago!!!"

"I met a prince, Fairy Godmother," Cinderella replied. "He took care of everything."

"I know of no prince with that kind of power! Tell me his name!"

"I can't remember, exactly...Peter Peter, something or other...."

okay now thats funny.....I laughed out loud on this one.

The block was dead
Yo so I continued to A1A Beachfront Avenue


Nothing wrong with that.....

It definitely is one of the most well known hockey moments, though also very much overplayed. After the way the Bs played this year my head is still hurting...

Well...just slide me a beer and I have a story to tell....

The restaurant is great.....busy but great. We actually booked a room for August 15th at POP......but......it was a discounted and "on request". Well it fell through today. kinda disappointing but was not meant to be. We have season passes this year so we are definitely going in Jan but I was hoping to squeeze a summer trip in. We would just drive down. My wife is TA so she is always looking for deals......this could be very dangerous, especially when your wife is just as fanatical as me when it comes to disney.

Jefe: I have put many beautiful pinatas in the storeroom, each of them filled with little suprises.
El Guapo: Many pinatas?
Jefe: Oh yes, many!
El Guapo: Would you say I have a plethora of pinatas?
Jefe: A what?
El Guapo: A *plethora*.
Jefe: Oh yes, you have a plethora.
El Guapo: Jefe, what is a plethora?
Jefe: Why, El Guapo?
El Guapo: Well, you told me I have a plethora. And I just would like to know if you know what a plethora is. I would not like to think that a person would tell someone he has a plethora, and then find out that that person has *no idea* what it means to have a plethora.
Jefe: Forgive me, El Guapo. I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education. But could it be that once again, you are angry at something else, and are looking to take it out on me?
