We ended up saving around $500 this way and added a day onto our trip as well I told DH to look at this way. We stay at a Mod and and spend the extra $500 OR we get a new laptop and go to POP w/ an extra day added With us flying now there was no way I was going to attempt CBR w/o our own car My kids are so young they are more attracted to the Values at this point anyhow. Hopefully in the end it all works out!

I'm so happy to read that you enjoy POP so much! We stay at Sports our last visit and I have no complaints. We were hardly ever in our room and it did its job!
I'm sure it will all work out. Glad to see you got your reservation fixed the way you wanted. The extra money we save by staying at pop we do things like T-rex and build a dino. One of my girls requested to do BBB and the other be a pirate. Pop has a great pool for the kids and Goofy pop up jets. I wanted to go back to a modeate but my girls were asking for pop. We fit in the room fine right now. But when they get older I can see up going back to a moderate or one of the new suites.

Your children are darling! I have 2 girls (3rd grader and preschool)
and a boy too...but our baby boy is 14 and like 5'8". However, there is a lot of similarities between teenagers and babies...

Can't wait to see if you enjoy the choices for meals - we are doing the deluxe in April and picked many of the same places - CRT, askerkus, Le Cellier.

Beautiful kids and pics!

Updated INFO

So we are 24 days away from Disney World now and MY how time has gone by. I cannot believe we are almost there! I have the girls costumes bought and ready for BBB! Lillian decided upon Jasmine and Vi choose Cinderella again(shocking, I know lol). They still do not know they are going to BBB OR eating in the castle. I've also ordered the chocolate slippers for the girls for when we go to CRT for lunch.

I'm still debating upon ordering a cake. The practical side of me screams NO because I know we are totally going to have WAY too much Disney Desserts on the DxDP BUT the curious side of me is screaming YES to compare them to the cakes back home Need to make up my mind soon here!

I think I am most looking forward to getting away from the snow at this point I've been going to the tanner this past week and totally dream of FL when I feel the heat from the bulbs frying..I mean, tanning my skin I'm not one who is into this sort of thing but I know that IF I don't do this back home then I will totally be paying for it down there and who wants to spend their trip miserable and in pain from being burnt? At least I will avoid it this way. Which reminds me I need to pick up some baby sunblock from the store for the baby and kids.

Ohhh the baby! I have to give ya'll an update on PJ. HE IS WALKING now Just turned 10 months and is into everything and goes EVERYWHERE. He also says a TON of words. I just can't get over how much he has grown. This trip will be bittersweet since afterwards he will be turning a year


I've started packing bags as well Still have to make up our lists but we are pretty much ready to roll here!

There's nothing wrong with coupons! I've been coupon crazy for the last few months, trying to save as much as I can!

hi! Where in Michigan are you? My moms side is in Marshall and battle creek.
haircut- we last took my ds at 9 months. U wanted to get his hair cut but he didt have any. So now he is 2 years and I am still saving his first haircut for harmony. Thankfully we are just a couple months away. And thankfully his hair is curly because this haircut is long overdue
he was our easiest last trip. I have a Moby too and it definitely was helpful at times. I'd consider taking a stroller from home. It really made the airport easier. You've got carryons and jackets and bags to entertain the kids and tickets out and it's just easier not to have to carry the kids too. You can roll your stroller all the way down the gate ramp and the agents them put it under the plane as you board and it's back out there waitin for you when you step off.

Yay our trips are getting so close now! Only 20 days for me. I know what you mean about clipping coupons, I'm going to have to start doing some serious coupon clipping what with our trip to Disney, college tuition next year, and that new laptop I'll need for college as well! Can't wait to hear about your wild Disney dream! lol
