Sorry to hear about the delay, praying things move swiftly and your refund is soon on it's way. How frustrating.

I love your pin display. I'm thinking of using your idea for my daughters pins since when someone mentions trading them she looks at them like they have three heads she figures why would she have gotten the ones she likes to just "give them away"..... Anyhow, trading is obviously not her thing LOL!

Thank you!!

Trading really isn't my thing either.....lol I pick my pins carefully and only trade off the freebies (or you spent enough for a pin for a buck sort of thing).....that is, unless I like them!!

I'm so excited!!! Derek (our son on the College Program at WDW) is joining us for 3 full days!!!

Of course that meant adjusting our ADR's to include him. I called Disney Dining figuring this would be an easy thing to do. Wellllllllllllllllll, it wasn't that easy.....ok, it was pretty easy on most, but not Cinderella's Royal Table. I figured since they probably didn't have a "table for 3" that adding a 4th chair to a table wouldn't be a big deal......but there's a fire code limit & we couldn't add one more body to the restaurant for dinner. This is a party night, so we need to be out of the parks before 7pm and there was a later dinner spot but we couldn't do that one. So we changed the other 5 meals (over 3 days) and left the CRT alone, hoping to catch a break watching online.

We did some time adjustments for adding the extra person. I will list out those 3 days in a moment.

I decided to look and see if we could do CRT earlier in the day and move our Crystal Palace to a dinner time. Well we found a lunch time for the 8 of us at CRT & a dinner time at CP.......so I made those changes!! So here's the updated agenda for Dec. 9-10-11!!

Sunday~Dec. 9th
Grab a snack at POFQ for breakfast
12:05pm Cinderella's Royal Table (originally a 4:15pm dinner)
5:15pm Crystal Palace (originally a 8:10am breakfast)

Monday~Dec. 10th
Grab a snack at POFQ for breakfast
12:30pm Tusker House (no changes)
6:00pm Boatwrights (no changes)

Tuesday~Dec. 11th
7:45am Cape May (no changes)
3:10pm Sci Fi Diner (originally 4:30pm) Like this better, we'll be done in plenty of time to catch Fantasmic!!
Snacks for evening at DHS or POFQ

I'm so happy Derek will be able to join us for 3 days (all in a row too!!)

That's so exciting that Derek can join you for a few days! It will be nice to have the whole family there for a bit! Glad you were able to get meals straightened out!

How is Derek liking working in WDW???

We knew he'd have a few days off during our trip, just so glad he was able to request specific days (he was interested in joining us) and got them approved!!! Now if Nick & Marie could join us, I'd be one happy mama!!!

Derek loves the benefits of working there......fast food (and not actually getting to cook anything) is the frustration of the actual job. He feels there's so much more he could be offering and seems a bit sad he only gets to hand out food. But he'll hang in there & put on a smile........maybe he'll get moved or he'll just put in his time and then apply for a different park job when his college program time comes to an end. I think he likes being there & he likes working for WDW......just not so much the actual job he has right now.

Oh sorry, I had forgotten that Nick wasn't coming. Maybe something will happen and they will be able to join!

That's too bad that he doesn't like the actual position he was given. Hopefully it will be something he can change a little later, or like you said, after his program is done. Glad he is liking WDW though! It would be so fun to work there! Does he get to enjoy the parks often?

The group he rooms/hangs out with tend to go to Epcot.......a lot!! lol He like's Epcot, but the only time he's been to the Magic Kingdom was during Traditions. He really wants to go spend a day there. The only problem with not having a car, is you rely on others or you have to have money for a cab.

He usually ends up spending one of his days off doing grocery shopping, errands, laundry and that leaves him one day for parks. I'm hoping he can figure something out so he can go more often.

Thank You!!! We're pretty excited!!! I'm glad I decided to look at switching the CRT to lunch (only time listed for the afternoon/early evening) and the CP to a dinner vs a breakfast. Now we're set (as long as the money gets here and we don't take in another kiddo). Scared to think what happens to our ADR's if we need to bump all of them up by one!!
