Sugarglider - we are staying at SSR too, we needed something with 2 bedrooms (living area, kitchen and washer/dryer were a big bonus) that wasn't too expensive. Having never been there I have no real idea of how far away from everything it is but I am looking forward to the spread out quiet vibe people say it has.

Well all my ADRs are made! I had to get CRT for lunch on our last park day rather than dinner because when I put in dinner it kept saying their was an error and please check the time. So I went for lunch instead which I have now decided will be better. On that day the Main St Electrical Parade is scheduled to run at 9pm and Wishes at 10pm, I would love to go and watch them so if we go to CRT for lunch we can go back to the resort for a rest before heading back to MK for our last night.

I feel so relieved to have everything booked - and I got every restaurant we wanted at good times. Hope everytone elses ADRs are sprinkled with Pixie dust.

Congrats Dabecs! All done! (now just have to wait until time to go......)

A villa is a good choice for multiple bedrooms. off to SSR and the horsey theme!

Just booked our flights. Am so happy - we got flights to Orlando with Qantas and United for $1533 each!!! Just a few weeks ago I was quoted around $2,200 to go with Qantas. DH said 6 months out was the magic time period and he was right. So the trip is definitely going ahead now. So far we have our flights, accomodation for 14 nights at the Wyndham Bonnet Creek and our RCCL cruise booked. Need to get on with day to day planning so I can book any dining we require.

Hi Everyone...

I am feeling absolutely devastated at the moment... After 648 days of thinking, dreaming, planning and PAYING for our trip.. I think I have to cancel... Hubby has come home saying he is now retrenched from his job that he has been in for the last 16 years and I know that he won't have a problem getting another job but it's just the timing.... When he starts his new job there won't be any leave available. Every thing is so up in the air at present. I feel like I am in limbo.

omg hon, i'm so sad for you. i have my fingers crossed that a new job comes along soon -- hopefully they will honor the leave for your trip...

same thing happened to my brother, got 'retrenched' on the same day his son was born, 2 months ago. he's been on stacks of interviews and still nothing...

sending lots of and good thoughts into the universe for you

I hope your DH finds a job really quickly.
Some employers are great and will still let you have the leave but unpaid that's what DH is doing he only started his new job in March and they were fine with our trip because it was already booked just concerned for him that he would have no income for that time.

I am so so sorry this has happened to you and your family. It must feel very overwhelming at the moment. I agree with the others that perhaps he will find a new job very quickly with an understanding employer. Fingers crossed for you.

So sorry to hear this I can just imagine how shattered you are both feeling right now. I really hope that your DH finds a new job very, very soon!!

Hugs hugs and more hugs!

My husband started a new job just after Easter and his new employer was happy for him to take leave but it will be without pay - hope your husband can find a new job quickly and his new employer is understanding.

Hugs again!
