Laurie -

I'm glad you figured out a way to work AKL into your itinerary so that you have to go there. From what I've seen, their edible holiday display is one of the most interesting ones! I would have even suggested that if you were not doing the Boma meal to make sure to stop in AKL at some point on your AK park day - just to be sure you saw it for 5 minutes.

Now I have a question. We are all, of course, crossing our fingers that the IRS will come through for you - and most importantly, that they will come through in time for you to solidify all of your plans and start paying for things!

I know we don't want to think of this scenario at the moment - and I am still expecting everything to fall into place for your WDW trip because it just has to happen - but what IF the IRS doesn't come through in time to make the WDW trip happen and to book flights, etc., but they send you the money later on (which is what happened last year)? And let's assume that the other money you are expecting does not come through yet.

Would that mean that you might consider bringing the family to DLR for a holiday trip if all else fails? Of course, part of the whole miracle of this WDW trip was that it was, in some ways, going to be a cheaper trip than a trip to DLR. So a DLR trip may not exactly be less expensive in any way, and there are not as many things to do at DLR for the holidays as there are at WDW, but, as you well know, you don't need to have things planned and booked nearly as far in advance for DLR as you do for WDW.

So if it is looking like things are down to the wire for WDW and it's going to be too late to book things, but the money comes through a bit later - would you try for a DLR holiday trip, or would you just skip the holidays at any Disney park entirely and plan your Disney trips for next year?

That is the magic question.......so it would make sense to do that.....but emotionally I'm not sure we'd be in the right frame of mind. It would be a huge let down, after planning for 10mths and having to cancel.......and the other factor here~~~we'd have a hard time "celebrating" when we'd be across the country from Derek. This trip started as a family trip, but then Derek got in the College Program at WDW and now it's even more important for us to go.

So I'd like to say......yes but I really don't think our heart would be into it.

Hi everyone....sorry for my absence on here.....life has been busy and I've been working on my new adventure. I now can help plan and book trips to places "we all love". Can't say more on here, so if interested in knowing what's up....message me or friend me on facebook!!

I'm hoping I'll have a little more time to catch up on everyone's trip reports.....I feel so out of the loop!

I'm also guilty, guilty, guilty of being glued to the Olympics......it's a good thing they're only on every 4 yrs.......sheesh!!!

I re-did our main bathroom too..........

I have Disney accessories in our bathroom upstairs. No shower curtain becuase we have the sliding doors. I love the Disney touches. They put a smile on my face.

Me too and I need a smile. Scotty had some regular blood work done at the Drs office and his prostrate numbers are too high. Hopefully it is a false high. He had to be tested again and if he is high again he has to go in and get a biopsy done. I have been real worried about him.


But, on a high note Kacy has an interview with Costco on Tuesday. It starts at $11 an hour and is a guaranteed 25 hours. I sure hope for her she gets it.

Thank you.


Yeah I am thrilled for her. That is a great starting salary for a 19 year old and it comes with benefits. She had kind of a phone interview and then she has the formal interview on Tuesday. They are interviewing her for 3 different positions. I really hope for her that she gets it.

Love the Disney bathroom! I really want to do that for Seth's bathroom. We got him a Mickey towel with his name on it from WDW, and it would go so well with some Mickey bathroom accessories. Thinking of hitting up ebay soon.

Also, checked out FB. Very cool.

So sorry to hear about Scotty Michele. Hope it turns out to be nothing. Will keep you all in my thoughts.

Thanx Andrea!! I'm hoping to find some Mickey wall clings......I know they're out there, but they're getting harder to find. Let me know what kind of prices you find on ebay......I might be able to go pick stuff up & mail to you again cheaper. (would just need the money up front.....since I'm so poor)

Keep me in mind if you book again!!

Please update us Michele when you find out anything....we'll be praying!

I would definitely pay you up front if it came to you sending me something. I totally understand that. And I so appreciate the offer.

I will definitely keep you in mind for booking. I still need to book for the girls trip, so I might be needing your assistance soon. Now that I am making some decent money, I might actually be able to afford to go! I really hope that you can too, if you need someone to stay with to make it cheaper, Jessica and I have room at the HoJo. Also if it helps you out to book, I can cancel my room at the HoJo so you can rebook it.
