I have no problems pulling Megan out....I give the teachers plenty of notice, ask for homework and make sure it gets done!
plus, travelling to me is a learning experience, yes even to Disney! and having that time with our kids to so important too!

so where do you think you'll stay Cassey? if we love POFQ like I think we will, that will probably be our choice...Megan also wants to stay at the Poly, so maybe we will get one or two nights there depending on how much $$ I get saved up.

I'm not sure where we will stay. I was thinking of asking Julia what she would like, but then she really likes the deluxes so maybe I better not.

I love POFQ, really quiet at night but plenty to do. The pool area is cute, and I loved soaking in the hot tub after coming back from the parks.

We have never done a split stay so I am thinking we might try it, depending on how much I get saved. I wish I could purchase my airfare now, I have enough miles for 2 free tickets. Trying to see how I could justify another trip soon.

Megan wants to stay at GF for a WHOLE trip....not going to happen, told her she'd have to pay for that when she's grown up!

split stay was easy....the bell services came picked up our stuff, they transferred it, we headed over to get checked in, when luggage arrived they brought it up....the only bad thing is having to pack up twice!

justify a trip to disney that doesn't need any justifing in my book!

GF for a week would be nice!!! But it's not in my budget!!!

Julia says maybe Contemporary again or maybe Poly, she likes the monorail. I keep hinting about Epcot resorts, but she's not interested.

I keep playing with the numbers in my budget, but with Josh in college I can't make it work right now. I need to check into how long my miles are good for. If I am really good, I might be able to swing a trip next year....

We have stayed at All star sports, Contemporary(only b/c I got a really good deal) and POFQ. The next few trips are going to be seriously budget trips but we loved the sports resort so it will be good no matter where we stay. Julia is addicted to Disney as much as I am.

This is going to be a really great trip!!!

I can't wait to start planning, my family thinks I am obsessed! There are still so many things we haven't done yet and I try to fit a few more in every trip.

I hope someone likes to ride rollercoasters, the last trip they made me queasy. Julia loves them so I try to do them at least once, on our trip in 2010 she made me ride splash, BTM, splash, BTM, and then splash again. I couldn't wait to sit down for awile.... I used to be able to ride them all day, I don't think I like getting older.

we will ride them with her....love EE, BTM, Space Mtn, haven't done RnRC as of yet and Megan doesn't like the drop on Splash and we haven't done ToT either

we like to try new things/restaurants too and since we don't go (usually, this year is so different) but every three years it always seems new to us. and Fantasyland will be complete by our trip too, so will have TONS of new stuff there.

Megan was really mom 2 years away ....this is fun planning with our friends and will help pass the time too!

I can't wait to see the new fantasyland expansion!! We have been lucky to be able to go the last few years but we will see what I can swing in the future.

We like trying a few new restaurants each trip too. Julia has decided she loves Ohana for breakfast, she says that is a definite.

I rode TOT once with Julia, I had to sit for awhile afterwards. RNRC does alot of twisting and loops upside down, makes me , but I always ride at least once with her. I don't mind the drop on splash, but the combo of that and BTM so many times in a row left me queasy for a loooong time.

maybe we will have to send the girls on a couple of the rides together!
we did Ohana for dinner, but would be in for breakfast!
are doing just QS for the coming trip, so will to do TS again in 2013, will want to try the new restaurant in Fantasyland, think its Gaston's. We really enjoyed Les Chef in Epcot.

We'd more than likely be at a Value. I'm too cheap

DH wouldn't let me go without him, so I'll be bringing him...

Morgan's school always has W,T and F of Thanksgiving week off, so if we do F to F, she'll miss 3 days. If we do T to T or T to F, she'll miss 4. I don't care.

Megan is off early W, then T, F...not sure yet what days !

We are off school W, Th, F so we would probably leave on Friday evening or Saturday morning before Thanksgiving (only miss two days of school/work). Then we would probably return home on Thanksgiving weekend probably on Saturday (depending on flights). If I am lucky enough to swing this trip with money and two days off work around a holiday that is. I am going to hope, but that might be as far as I get I will be honest, I am not even going to mention this to my DH for probably a year. Have to get the trip we are planning on going to this spring under our belts first.

ETA: We will ride anything . My DD9 thinks the bigger, the, faster, the scarier, the better. DD11 is not quite into the thrill rides (doesn't really like upside down) but she will ride some of them. I love everything! Would love to see the Fantasyland!!
