I think it depends on the chapter. They gave us a check and we just deposited it right into our checking account. I've heard others say it was a debit card.

I realize we're supposed to let them take care of it all, but I am naturally a planner and we are wanting to extend the trip on our own expense, as I have seen quite a few folks have been able to do! So please bear with me as I learn more about forums and what I'm supposed to do and I'm sure I'll be asking tons of questions! And yes, I'm from Texas!

I am stressed out with Luke's trip this week. We were approved to take a third adult along to help with the trip. Unfortunately, the dates didn't fit into dh's sisters work schedule, so she can't come. Long story short, we have asked over five people to come along and no one can make it work. I really do not want to change our dates, our next dates would probably be december or January. I am frustrated, we are offering up a free vacation, but our son is hard to chase, so we have age and experience requirements. College students are out because it's an exam week, and it's not a paid nursing position so I can't offer a salary. I will have to call my maw chapter on Monday and see if they have any advice.

I know one or two months difference in dates shouldn't bother me, but I really don't want to change dates! I just have to accept that if we are meant to go, we will find the right person. I hate waiting patiently for God to show me His path. Patience is NOT my special gift!!

I'll go

Yay for hopeful prospects!! I hope you have a peaceful night and good weekend!

We are doing well. E's been sniffly for about a week and a half. It's seeming to be just allergies but I'm so paranoid we're all going to get some sort of sicky bug just before our trip! I told DH that we need to start inhaling copious amounts of vitamin C between now and then! He's diabetic and has sworn off all sugary drinks (doesn't even drink diet!) so I guess I'll have to make him take it in pill form??

As far as Disney dreaming, I had a monster headache earlier so I took advantage of E napping and I laid down. Well, I laid down fretting over hotel bookings and ended up dreaming that I was helping a SWIM TEAM?? Yes, they were having their first evening match and apparently the pool wasn't lit so they had GLOW IN THE DARK TAPE on the bottom of the pool so they could see the lane markings. Weird. I also forgot to pass out the playbook (yes, this was a dream..I know there is no playbook in swimming!) to the team and got in trouble for that. I think the glow in the dark stuff came from reading some Disney tips on here about bringing glow sticks for the kids....

Does anyone else have crazy dreams when their minds are so active? I paraphrased the above...it was weirder than that!

Happy Friday to you all and I hope you have a great weekend!

Disney crazy is a good name for it! You know we worry about our kids staying healthy and keeping them calm in the hospitals. So when we finally have something nice to look forward to and you want it so bad to go perfect. I am glad I am not the only one that knows what I mean though Good call on the Wal-Greens shopping. Picked up spinners for both kids and some glow in the dark bubbles. They look pretty awesome so I am excited to try them out.

No specific disney dreams but a real life nightmare today when discovery cove claimd we had no reservation despite my reservation number and that they had charged my card.... but of course it was really there and just hiding.

sweet dreams everyone!

So does anyone know if there is a magical list somewhere of what you should pack for Disney and carry with you in the park? We have never been and I am afraid we will forget something important. Can you tell I tend to worry about everything
