I love the fact that you can reserve the WoC picnic online. But, then I wonder why. You know what I mean? Are they going to reserving all of the meals online and get rid of all of the customer service cast members? That would really tick me off.

I think they're treating those as tickets which you can buy online.....the food is just a bonus?? Not sure but don't think they're cutting down on the customer service. Maybe it's easier for people to go online to see pictures of the meals & the list of what's included vs having someone read off the entire menu over the phone.....I'd get lost in the choices........lol

You know I think you may be right on that. I hadn't thought about that.

Laurie didn't you go last year? I thought you did? I feel like I've been talking to you forever and it was 2009 that I met a few of them on our last trip. Determined to see you this time.

No, I've never been able to go........In 2009, I also had a very short meeting with them during the Dole Whip for Bawb picture at the Tiki Room.....we were on vacation at the same time as the girls trip.

I've just been following the thread & keeping in contact......this time I told Mike I WAS going......lol and wa-la.....I am!!!

This Diva's trip sounds like something right up my alley. Too bad I have plans for late Feb. already with the family. I am already dreaming up a trip for my b-day in Oct. and maybe a mini diva trip of my own with my 7th dd in Nov. These AP are crazy and my year is filling up with dreams of Disneyland trips. But, you know me.....I'm trying to take it ONE trip at a time.

Keep us posted on what's new. Looking forward to all the great pictures the Papparazi Princesses will be taking!!
You know...you could always stop in for a quick day trip during the ladies trip to just get to know some of us, even if you can't do the whole thing!! The large group can be a bit overwhelming, it's wonderful to know people before you start out!

That's exactly what I plan to do. I only met handful of girls in 2009, it was still really nice. I wish I could do one of the big group pictures with everyone but we leave on Saturday and that's when I think you guys do it.

I have never done the PFF and have always wanted to. With only having a little boy with me the princesses are always a no go for us.

I decided to add a few surprises every evening during our stay at the PPH. I called Vacation Planning to see about modifying one of their "In Room Celebrations".....but they are unable to make changes to them, so I decided not to go that route. I was looking at the Mickey & Minnie in love one but wasn't interested in the spa basket at all & was hoping to go with something different. Oh well........ But I did add a few goodies:

On Monday evening when we return from dinner at the Napa Rose, we will find a Balloon Bouquet & 2 Champagne Glasses with Sparkling Cider. We're not champagne drinkers & may already have had a cocktail at dinner.....so figured cider was the way to go.

On Tuesday evening when we return from our late dinner at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen, we'll come back to find a tray of Tuxedo Strawberries. Now I'm not a big fan of putting chocolate & fruit together....but I really wanted to try these & figured this would be a great time to do so.

On Wednesday evening when we return from watching the World of Color show, we will find Mickey Rice Krispy treats & milk waiting for us. Hopefully this time we actually get the rice krispy treats......in 2009 when we stayed a couple nights at the DLH.....I ordered this & we ended up with the Mickey shortbread cookies. They were ok, but a bit on the dry side & definitely NOT rice krispy treats......YUMMO!

So now I really need to stop planning.......trying to make the trip with Mike a little more relaxing!!

Have you ever thought about using some of that refund to get a couple of webcams so you and the girls can see each other since they don't do the phone? Your new laptop might even already have one built in.

My laptop does have it & so does my sons who is coming down to stay with the kids....unfortunately he won't be able to bring his computer with him....his fiance will need it for schooling. We're thinking about getting one for our home computer.....my son was suggesting us learn Skype so we could video chat with the twins.

Is it easy to do?? The thought of being on camera while on the computer creeps me out.....lol Not much for being on the front side of a camera.....like being behind it.

Not hard at all and you still have over a month to play with it so you will feel comfortable besides you will be too busy looking at the girls to care about being "in front of" the camera. Hey you might even consider it a tool to get them to interact a little, you never know what will work.

Hi ... I've been enjoying reading your TR's and just wanted to chime in on Skype. I don't know much about computers etc, but we downloaded it on our computer and the grandparents put it on theirs and my kids just love "talking" to them via Skype. My DS5 usually won't say more than 2 words on the phone, but is more than happy to see Granny and Grumpy on the computer and has a lovely chat with them. Give it a try! And I hope that your trip is as wonderful as can be, you certainly deserve some time out.
