I have never understood that whole thing, but I know alot of wheeling and dealing goes on where passes are concerned!! I am amazed at what some people are able to do trading up their passes. Good luck!

Are you kidding? I wouldn't miss 'em for the world, and I'll actively participate in them whenever I can!

Thanks! So happy to hear it!

Well hopefully I can help create some of those shenanigans May 15!

ABSOLUTELY!!

Hear, hear!

Beth
Beth- it was so nice to meet you on our cruise, and to spend SO much time in Palo with you!! I hope we do see each other again on one- there's always May 6th... Kara will be booking our cabin one week from this Saturday!! I can't wait to add that to my ticker!!

Thank-you so much!! I am thrilled you enjoyed it and I'll be looking for you in our May trippie- if you're bored in the meantime, I have a slew of TRs from other trips...the links are at the bottom of my sig....

I feel VERY lucky!! We usually go to OBX (or at least we have the past 2 years) because flying anywhere around Passover/Easter is INSANE! I love that vacation- but this year, all the families are doing other things, because the 2 main families that started the whole trip are going on Allure of the Seas. So then I thought I would just take the boys to Washington DC for a couple of days- well, hotel rooms are at a premium because of the Cherry Blossom Festival....and it dawned on me that maybe the cheapest place for us to go would be WDW, because we already have the points. OMG, I soooooooooo love my DVC!!! If Tyler could have gone, we would have flown out of Atlantic City- Spirit Air has flights for $49 each way!! All three of us could have gone for $406!!! But...Tyler made the travel team for baseball (the one that is replacing the middle school team) and he HAS to be at the practices...Timmy was already commited to playing games on the weekends for his travel baseball, so it only left the weekdays- we are going Monday morning and coming home on the last plane on Thursday night! I have promised to eat counter service to save $$, although we are going to one TS dinner- because it's Timmy's Bday on the 19th, so I really want them to fuss over him. I made an ADR at Kona Cafe...but who knows if i'll change that 100 times before we go!! I figure we can take advantage of DTD staying at SSR, and eat as often as possible at EOS & we'll get to try that breakfast pizza at WPE.

Well...I have to say, I have some very, very sweet sons. I had not mentioned a thing about any of this the past couple of weeks when I was investigating it, and then it became clear Tyler could not go anyway. But yesterday I asked Tyler if he would mind if Timmy & I went to WDW for a few days while he was at baseball practice. He said, "No, i wouldn't mind- it's only for a few days, and I'll go another time. Have fun!"
And then I asked Timmy if he would want to go to WDW with just me...he got the sweetest smile on his face and he sadi "Sure! I would like to go to Disney with you!" When I asked him where he wanted to have his birthday dinner he said, "You pick- I'm good with anything!" Could it BE any better than that??

You have such sweet sons. I think it is great they are willing to travel without one another and to support one another's happiness when they cannot travel due to other committments.

Thanks so much- I agree, I am very happy with their behavior! Especially Tyler- he is being so selfless & thoughtful!

Hey that's awesome...we were going to go to DHS this weekend but we held off until April...Would have loved to run into you and Timmy but if it's the weekend of 4/2 and 4/3 we can't make it over there cause Savannah has dance stuff going on! I think pretty much the only time we can go in April is the 10th because of dance competitions and baseball (busy busy lol). Our passes are blocked out Easter Week (Spring Break, we must be the only county in FL still dong it around Easter).


Have a BLAST! Sounds awesome!!!

that is awesome that Tyler was so good about letting his brother go. I feel for him. I had to stay home one year when my family went because of track practice (this will be sooooo much funnier when you see me run in May---and of course we will have to run someplace ) Have a great time and how could you not pass up that airfare.

Why, oh why am I always playing catchup here?

But this time I finally made it to the end - great last day and I just love that you get to go again so soon and then in May again! (Actually being selfish here - 2 more trip reports for me! )

Thanks for the trip reports, Ellen! I really REALLY LOVE them!

Well...we are there Monday to Thursday night, so that wouldn't have worked anyway. Timmy has baseball games on the weekends, Tyler has baseball practice Mon-Thurs. Kids' activities make it difficult to do ANYTHING anymore! ANd next year Tyler will be in High School, so it will be even more challenging then. I know it sounds crazy that Tyler is missing a Disney trip for PRACTICE, but practice actually begins that week and the team is kind of a big deal- it replaces the Middle School teams, which we lost this year due to budget cuts. So he really understands why he isn't coming, he's very happy to be on this team.

Well...we ended up taking the plane out of Newark and not AC because it was just two of us- and the AC plane would have had us in WDW about 1 1/2 days less arriving late the first night and leaving VERY early Thursday morning. When you factor in paying for a suitcase and driving 2 hours each way, it wasn't that much more for the convenience of Continental out of Newark- which is only 20 minutes from here.

Thanks, Rosie!! I am so excited to spend one on one time with my youngest!! Especially since I know what's coming soon- his teenage years! I'm hoping he'll do some kid stuff he wouldn't do if Tyler was around- although, they will do anything for Sean, so I guess there are still a few more rides on Dumbo in my future!

EXACTLY!!! I am VERY happy with Pods, too- I should definitely recognize that fact! Not that much fun to be around here for tax season, and he knows that- he also knows that the window is closing- Timmy will be on that same baseball team either next year or the year after....I'm lucky to have a Pods for a DH!

You? Selfish? Well, I suppose you wanting me to go on vacation so you get a couple of TRs is the most selfish you would ever be. I'll TAKE IT!! I'm so, SO glad you love my TRs, Karin! I love all 300 of yours, too!!
