That, and Bobby Clarke's toothless grin. I'm sick of seeing that guy and his bad dental work.

Now Melrose's mullet and Cherry's wardrobe, can't get enough!

Before or after dinner would work out great. I'm looking forward to a few frosty beverages poolside or If I can come up with a minimum order from Garden Grocer maybe more than a couple I am very excited about our first stay at a moderate, I may even have to hit the hot tub no matter the weather.

Let me know how to find you.

Well which one is it.... Arch nemesis or Mortal Enemy?

OK here is what my henchmen are going to look like..

LOL Can I get in on this plan?

No red shirts involved.... Unless it is a Boston Su--- shirt!

For those of us that fly to WDW, what is your favorite method of getting tickets? Do you use sites like Expeida or Orbitz?
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?
I was going to say kayak.com... But prattpak mentioned that one already. We are jetblue flyers but we have to fly out of Whiteplains, NY or Newburg, NY both about 1hour 15 minutes away. Good thing is Jetblue is starting Florida service out of Bradley (Hartford) this fall!!!!

Exactly what we do!

UT has the best prices.. as someone else mentioned if you use the link in Mousesavers you get a few more $$$ off. I have a story to tell you about UT, I have to find it first. I'll be back....

OK back taken from my October 09 TR....

Melody's brother and his wife dropped us off at the airport. We made it through security and stopped at the bathroom. Our flight was already boarding! We got settled in the plane and we were waiting to leave. Everyone was on the plane and we were just sitting there. After 10 minutes of sitting I went numb. I turned to Melody and it went something like this:
Me- "OH MY GOD!"
Melody- "What?"
Me- "OH MY GOD!"
Melody- "What? What's wrong"
Me- "I left our park tickets in my top drawer"
Melody- "You are joking. You are joking right?"
Me- "No I'm serious. I left them in the top drawer."

I bought tickets from Undercover Tourist in the summer before the ticket prices went up. I put the tickets in a safe place..... a place where I wouldn't lose them. Apparently this place was where I would leave them while I was on a plane headed to Disney!!!!!!! I have no idea how I did this. I felt soooo bad. I was even nauseous.

The door finally shut and we were taxiing to the runway. I kept telling Melody I was sorry and I felt horrible, and I would fix everything once we got to Orlando. I managed to snap a few pics on the plane.


Jump ahead...
Melody & Juliana went to look in the gift shop and I stayed with the stroller in front of the restaurant. I went to check the time on my cell phone and I noticed I had a voicemail. I looked at the number and it was a Florida number. I didn't know if Melody's cousin was trying to get a hold of us so I checked my message. Undercover Tourist (the place I bought our park tickets from) called me back and wanted me to call them. I called them back and spoke to a very nice woman and I explained what had happened. She said she had all my info and to call her back when I got to guest services with a fax number. She had copies of the back of my tickets and would fax that over. SCORE!!!!

One more jump....
We hopped back on the monorail back towards MK. We got our bags checked and I headed over to guest services. The line was pretty long but was moving quickly. I got up to the window and quickly explained what was going on. I got the fax number and called UT. They send the fax over. The CM and I were waiting for it to arrive. The cover letter came but no second page. We were waiting & waiting. I called UT again and asked them to send the second page over. While I was on the phone I saw the CM go over to the fax machine. The second page was stuck inside the fax and it was crumpled and not legible. A moment later my fax was coming through!!!! Our tickets were reissued and we were ready to go!!

Point is...UT has some of the best service around.. and the best prices. Their prices include TAX & SHIPPING! We have bought tickets from them 2 times and will most likely be buying all our tickets from them. If you ned the mouse savers newsletter PM me. I'll email it to you.

I'm 44 yr old Father of two boys 11 and 8, Married 16 yrs to my lovely wife. Live in Southern NH just below Manchester, I was brought up in a Suburb of Boston and I'm a fan of the Bruins, Red Sox and Patriots, not a fan of Basketball.
Things I'm geeky about besides Disney. Jimmy Buffett,Mustangs, Jeeps, Bugs Bunny 70 and 80's Rock.
as posted in DDC IV, i now own a 2011 v6 mustang. Sure, it's an automatic (please don't judge too harshly), but it's still my first Mustang.

Even if you WERE right, that'd be 1+1+2+1, not 1+TWO+1+1.

It's in pretty rough shape right now but I hope to get it restored some day soon(if I can stop spending so much money at Disney )

I'm a ragtop man, had a '85 LX 5.0 vert many years ago, went through almost a couple decades of sensible cars (did my time in the minivan!) and now have an '08 GT500 vert. Trying to talk my wife into a new 5.0 but she's just not into cars
305 hp is enough. I'd kill myself with a 412 hp GT.

On a serious note, how do you guys book your vacations to The World? I ask because for our Disneymoon we used a local travel agent, but for our last two trips, we've booked through Disney's site. Anybody have experience with Mouse Fan Travel? Or any other reputable Disney travel agent? I have a feeling we could save a lot of money booking through an agent than booking straight through Disney. But the comfort of knowing Disney did the booking kind of puts me at ease.
We stick to the Disney Website. I know it's less expensive to do some other sites, but that's what we do.

From the STL. I used to be a Blues fan, but fell out of love with Hockey. I want to see a hockey game, not "I went to the fights last night, and a hockey game broke out."
