That's the exact same think Mark said about parades. Is that a man thing? Perhaps thats why Denny and Nick never got off their chairs to come over and watch?

Just wanted to let you know that I am still here, but I am just insanely, obnoxiously behind on your TR so I still have a lot of reading to do. I hope to catch up on your TR soon so I can comment. Sheesh, this must be what happens when I sub to so many TRs!

Well, it did take 7 years so hopefully it won't take another 7 to get to 20,000.

Is it wrong to be excited about getting 10,000 posts? I guess it is a little obsessive!

I hope you are able to catch up. When I get really far behind on a TR I just start from the most recent and read backwards. Hopefully the links will help. Just catch up when you can and thanks for stopping by!

Great update, I love your parade pics! It looks like such a fun parade, I kind of wish we stayed at AK long enough in December to see it, but with me being sick, it just wasn't possible! Maybe next time!

Congrats on 10,000!

It is a great parade. Sorry you weren't feeling well enough to see it. I get you would have liked it! I think the non-Christmas version is pretty good too so maybe you will get a chance to see it in May!

Seriously. Even when you know there will likely be some kind of discount, it's becoming overpriced WITH the discount at times. I hate moving that much but I agree, it can be hard to swallow some of those prices at times.


Congrats on your 10K!!!!!!!!!!

I decided just to use Denny's Carlson points on the arrival night. We won't get out of the airport until 9pm. There's really no reason to stay at a Disney hotel because we'll check into SSR first thing in the morning.

I also think I am going to waitlist for BWV for the last night. I'll have to borrow for that night, but it makes more sense.

You'll like this - I have been on the cruise boards researching what room I want on the dream in Oct 2013. I have decided to use all my AAA certificates towards the cruise and book through AAA. Why the heck not?
