On the luggage thing: No scale at the moment. I really don't want to buy one right now. :P A friend who flies regularly told me earlier that it would be really hard for us to go over the weight limit just with clothes, but now I'm worried!

We're flying Jet Blue; we get one checked bag each (50 pounds). So we could take an extra bag if we want it, but we only have three suitcases!

Another question: We thought we were getting length-of-stay tickets, but DH misinterpreted something. We have one day less than our stay. Now, this isn't a problem if our eight days of tickets start the first day we use them (we weren't planning to go to a park the first day), but it is if they start the day we check in (we were planning to go to a park our last day).

DH emailed the travel agent and didn't get a clear answer (she just said we could add another day). Which means I have to call because he won't. Or does anyone know?

They start the first day you use them...no worries.

Thanks! I thought that was the case. We should be good, then.

It's snowing heavily here. Ugh. :P The trip can't get here soon enough.

Its easier than you would think to go over 50 lbs. Even with just clothes. Think what pp said that she took out 3 pairs of jeans = 10 lbs. If thats the case just 15 pairs equals 50. Plus, the suitcase itself has to weigh at least 10 so really we only have 40 lbs. To use, lol.

I was able to find a limo co. To take us to MHT for a reasonable price so yay! The kids love going in a limo.

I'd be safe and borrow a scale to weigh your luggage. We purchased luggage that won't allow us to go over 50 lbs...we hit 40 most of the time...mostly clothes, and my wife will add 2 liter bottles of soda from time to time. Each passenger also gets a free carryon with Jetblue. I've seen some carryon's that look like suitcases LOL.

Also if you did choose to add to your tickets, it shouldn't be that expensive...perhaps about $5-6 per day...just can't add to them on the last day i think. Check out Cheshire Figments ticket thread to be sure.

Hope all goes well

I just got an email from Southwest Airlines, with a subject header of "Your Trip is Just Around the Corner!" This would be exciting, except that the only flight I booked on Southwest is our return trip home.

So after opening it, the message says, "Are you all set to go to DENVER?"

Nooooooooo!!!!! THAT part isn't supposed to be "just around the corner"!!!

Ah, darn! I forgot about those fun emails from Southwest!
This is our first time not flying them, we are flying Jet Blue...I don't think we will get one of those.

Also, my sisters and friends will be checking on him every every evening. They have authority to bring him to the vet if they feel he needs help. Between your daughter next door and a pet sitter, would you be able keep your April vacation?
We cancelled last year because our dd was too busy to come over often enough. Now the dog needs even more attention. Someone has to be there the minute Lady wakes up and get her outside or else we are cleaning the rugs. So we actually need someone to live in for us to go away. Dh keeps telling me we aren't cancelling, but April 7 is quickly approaching (the day I have to cancel in order to not lose the deposit). I'm really glad you found someone to take care of your kitty while you are gone.

I am at 13 days and my TA at AAA called me on 3/18 to say they had my Mickey Mail and which AAA did I want to get it at. A week later, they still didn't have it. Emailed my AAA agent and said it should be there by Tues or Wed this week. Now Thursday and NOTHING. Getting freaked out. DH only has one more day off (besides Easter) that he can go to the AAA and get it all before we leave.

Freaking out at the moment....

I have to say from reading all these AAA reports.....sounds like they SUCK!!! What is so hard about getting MM to people? Disney sends it out about 30 days before....whether to you if you booked directly, or to your agent. Your agent should then send it RIGHT OUT to you so you get it 1-2 days later! Not that difficult!
