Thought I had mentioned it beforee but I guess I didnt.

We changed our BOG to 4:30 pm. Same date just a different time. Thought an early dinner would give us time to ride while folks are watching parade and visits.

Just checking in...... I like to see what my ticker says.

Kids still don't know. I'm DYYYYYIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGG to tell them. Watching Disney Jr. with YDD this a.m. and a WDW commercial came on and she said "I LOVE Disney, I want to go so bad!"

A little while later watching AFV with ODS and one of the clips was a WDW reveal and DH said "I wonder what you would say if that was you" and he's like "I would be like YAAAAAAYYYYY!"

It's physically painful holding this secret in, lol.

We had week 5 (i think) of our Weekly Disney Movie Night this weekend and it was Lion King. So far we've watched:

Alice in Wonderland
Lady & the Tramp
Cinderella
Bambi
Lion King

Funny part is every single week they've picked Cars out of the bowl and every single week they put it back in and draw again. Neither of them wanted that movie on the list but I added in since we're staying at AoA, lol.

I think once I reveal we're going to have to do a Twice-Weekly Disney Movie Night in order to get through them all!

You have way more self-control than I do, lol! I never would have made it this far with that kind of secret. Just keeping normal Christmas presents a secret is almost more than I can bear

We are trying to do some Disney movie nights, I have a whole list I want to get through. DH is being a pain and says it's too many though I think DS will do better with the characters if he knows them already!

I think the only reason I'm able to keep it in is because I can still talk about Disney all the time with them - the rides, the character meals, etc. (I'm a Disney TA). I just make like I'm talking about a client -- "hey, DS, check out this hotel my client's staying at, doesn't it look cool?" "DD, my client's going to eat with the princesses; which princess dress do you think she should get for her daughter?"

If I wasn't allowed to talk about Disney at all, I'm sure I would have burst and told them long ago, lol.

yay!
I wish we would get a refund instead of owing. I need to get off my butt and change the withholdings on some of our jobs so maybe next year we will at least break even.

This may sound like crazy but how do you check when the refund is supposed to be in?
We did our taxes and I am anxiously waiting for it to be in so I can officially book our trip( driving me nuts Bc I need to make adrs!! Lol)
They said it could take up to 21 days but is love to see a date when it should be deposited
Thank you!

Question for you!!! Do your taxes include mortgage interest and student loan stuff by any chance???

I haven't bothered to do our taxes yet, because per all of the financial articles, you can't file until late February if you're filing those forms....

But, if you can, I'm going to do it!

I know you weren't asking me but there is a website called "Where's my tax refund" you can google it, but you enter your information and it's all in there.

That would definitely take the edge off.

From my research, there really isn't anything out for April yet (at least nothing I qualify for).We're planning on one for only a few days though, so I need to be able to rent from one of the places on the Disney property. Right now, the best I can find is around $40/day.
