Wow.

That's all I can say.




Okay, I lied. You are a planning genius to keep this all straight and pull off a trip with such a large group.

And you can't count out the fact that they are getting part of college for free.

I wonder how he will react to being back in more of a high school setting after distancing himself last year. Maybe it will be a lot better, considering he will have experienced what else is "out there" and he will be able to handle it better.
I really hope so! Most, actually ALL of his friends graduated last year so I hope he can reconnect with guys actually his age. And yes, it is free, if they actually transfer depending on what you decide to do. I guess in his case, if the AA is out, than it doesn't matter as much if they transfer but still, if it shaves something, that would be cool. Jeff is more worried about him actually getting in and going to college at this point more than anything, it could be a rather stressful year on that front. The SAT has been abysmal to say the least and we are getting zero support from his mom.

You did a great job planning it!! I can't wait to hear the details.
Thanks! See, I don't think it looks all that confusing laid out.

there was a LOT of FDM and yet it still cost an arm and a leg, I must be bad at math. Or quit early in HS

well, it wasn't boring that's for sure. It was kind of wild that things were booked, I'd planned a rather leisurely booking process and instead it had some serious fend for yourself moment!

I swear, I was getting dizzy reading all of the changes and it was completely entertaining! Thanks so much for that--it's by far one of the best posts ever!
And it was your idea! I confess, when you first proposed it, the idea overwhelmed me but as I wrote out a departure day update it occurred to me that I hadn't quite set the stage...

So thank you and I"m so glad you were entertained!

We will get to Harry and the gang (and butter beer and so many many other things) but it will be a bit as it's towards the end of the trip. I have a LOT to share on it...I know it's the dark side and all that but....

Things ALWAYS work out. That's just a general life philosophy for me. We did miss Doug. He must come next time I think!

So I'm curious. How did everything go with your departure flight? I'll tell you why I ask, but later. Now who's keeping who in suspense?
well there were a couple of factors beyond what was in the update. First being the mods were doubles so those were out and Jeff REALLY wanted to stay at WL. So that's what happened.

Departure to MCO, the red eye? I think that will be 2 updates away....I may have to PM you! Or I can PM you my email addy oh miss antiFB. LOL. What specifically is the question?

We really are long lost planning sisters

I'm sure everything worked out wonderfully and it was all worth it in the end!
OMG I was reading your GRAND update and seriously, I think we are. though you are going to beat me in the surprise and over the top category, by a landslide!

Though I still chuckle when I think of the "Long Beach, NY" aspect of the Cali trip surprise

So funny, I was looking at point charts all night tonight.....I think I have at least 3 different DVC spreadsheets going at the moment.

Can't wait to hear more, especially since I got in on this close to the beginning.
I'm so glad you are here! And REALLY glad he took that spin on things, we needed those days!

Nah, not so much. it might sound really really odd but this is kind of the normal modus operandi around here. It's a lot of planning with 4 kids and the blended family and well, I like planning. So thankfully, it's a good thing. The Sandie Paul factor was high maintenance at times but other than that, not more complicated than daily life.

Thanks for typing all that out. Our PTR has been a huge mess with all the changes we have had and now I see I am not the only one with multiple changes. It helps me see that everything will turn out ok with our trip, so thank you!

Actually, it was from my complete lack of sleep last night! Added to plans I still can't wrap my wee little brain around, and I'm toast- and it's not Tonga.

I remember reading all of this as it was happening, but Gosh! When you put it all together on one page.... WOW!

It's a wonder you didn't lose your mind.

All I can say is, "You go, girl!!"
