I love the FQ as far as moderate resorts go- it is very nice. I know we will be staying at BLT (my birthday and that is where I love to stay) so if things stay the same with the lounge we can bring a group to the lounge for the evening and fireworks either Sunday or Monday night.

I an just being impatient as usual. I am itching to plan a trip, not sure about next year yet, have to see how finances shape up.

With the room rates being so high for the week of Thanksgiving, I am thinking of doing room only. Julia just does not eat the way the dining plan wants her to. So dining will be out of pocket so she can eat what she wants, which is usually an appetizer, salad and desert to split. I will probably purchase park tickets sometime in the next few months and put them away till the trip. I have done this for the last couple trips and it works out pretty good as long as I put them in the same place all the time.

I need to call and check on my miles, if they will still be good, that will be our airfare. I offered the miles to my mom and dad to fly them here for Christmas but my mom says dad will not fly. This will be the first christmas we will not see them.

I will have to be patient for awhile longer for the planning process.

I love "The Mixed Nuts". I'm thinking a bunch of different nuts with little Mickey ears on them for our t-shirts would be fun.

I'm not sure if DH is going to let me do the on-site thing. I may have to stay with my folks. They have a place in Winter Haven. Dad swears it is only 20 minutes to WDW, but it is not like he has actually gone to time it.

I'll find out how long it really is this Thanksgiving. We are meeting up with someone special and their family in DownTown Disney.

I need to figure out airfare, tickets, food and car rental. I don't have any idea how to plan airfare. Does it rise with a regular percentage? This year it is $268 per person round trip into Tampa.

Love the t-shirt idea, so cute!!

As for airfare, no rhyme or reason to the prices as far as I can tell. They claim to raise prices due to fuel costs but prices differ at different times of the year for the same flight.

I got round trip tickets for the three of us this Thanksgiving for under $650. *That* is what clinched the trip this year, free dining was just a bonus However, that is us flying on Thursdays...

Wow, that's a huge jump!

I'd better get our CA flights booked today!.....think I'm going to sneak in a weekend to DLR before we go visit our friends, Cheryl and her family will be there at that time....since my friends wedding was postponed until spring we have a couple extra days.
