Explodo, Headed your way! The thing I love about vacation planning with my fam is my wife is equally into it with me. And now our 5 yr old son is really into it as well. It sure makes the time pass alot faster when we can plan and chat about it constantly. The only problem now is that my son wants to do all the coasters, and i'm just not up for them, good thing my wife is!!

If it weren’t for being able to head out to the house for lunch, I’d miss nearly everything around here. So again I say: “Crud…”

Hummm… “Crud…”, just might need to become an accepted one word post for anyone around here that is just so slammed by life that the can’t even take a break long enough to even check in. I doubt it’s a good enough idea to declare a Man Law, but it perfectly fits my mood when I’ve had enough of the rest of the world.
My employer isn't quite that strict on internet usage. In fact, I'm typing this from work right now. That said, this thread is out of control. The only way I could possibly keep up with everything going on here would be to put all productivity on hold for about 15 minutes every hour just to read posts and get caught up in the DIS Dad's Club. I think we need some sort of Cliffs Notes type post every few pages just to summarize things as fast as this thread is moving.

Looks like Don had better get to work on DIS Dad's Club VI, because we're on pace to outgrow this one in a hurry.



and by the way...

Yeah...how do you think I do it?

Well guys, I'll do my part to slow the thread down. In 45 minutes I am out the door and on my way up north. (That's where Wisconsinites go on vacation when they can't get to Disney Wolrd - "up north".) I barely get cell reception at my sister's cabin, and that's just fine with me.
The cabin is about 30 minutes from Little Bohemia Lodge - the site of the infamous shoot out between the FBI and John Dillinger's gang. The scenes in "Public Enemies" were shot there, after the movie crew restored it to what it looked like in the 1930's. If everything goes as planned, we'll be having dinner there on Friday night.
Have a good weekend everybody!

Dilemma. I just checked Southwest for flights from Norfolk to MCO... and they have flights from Sep to Dec for $59 each way. That would be just over $400 for the 3 of us to fly to Orlando. I am soooooooo tempted to book something... especially with free dining available until Dec. Unfortunately, I have already agreed with DW that major spending is on hold until Feb. I need to play the lottery some more.....

With 500 members and counting, I don't think it's realistic to keep up with every conversation. Just dive in if you see something interesting. That's what I do.

LOL... I started on But DW was pretty firm when she said we need to tighten the spending. Single income is hard sometimes! But when a 5 day trip can be had for less than $1500 (all inclusive)... at the holiday time, I pause to think about my options. What's the saying... "It's easier to ask forgiveness than get permission"?

Coincidentally, I have just recently started reading his TR and learned about said spreadsheets. Sounds like a lot of work, but I might have to steal... I mean borrow this idea sometime.

Welcome!
Emma's Dad will be around to give you your number soon enough!

We're pretty easy to persuade... or not persuade as the case might be.
