Thanks again Dee for all that you do

Tomorrow would have been my dad's 80th birthday. This is the 1st one without him and I was struggling a little today but looking at all the pictures on page one made me smile and think of happier times so thank-you
Sorry to hear about the bittersweet day today. I hope there are more happy memories than sadness as you remember the wonderful times with your dad.

Thanks! I'm still crossing my fingers and toes (and eyes) that you will end up where you belong in July!

A girl can try!

1. Jiko
2. Aritist Point
3. Flying Fish
4. Cali Grill
5. Le Celiar

His birthday is the day they check out so they will have breakfast at Chef Mickey's! Other breakfast's look like Club Level, Grand Floridian Cafe, Donald's breakfastfari (Sunrise Safari). Lunch one day will be 50's Primetime and Columbia Harbor House (Keys to the Kingdom)... and that's as far as we have gotten so far.

The planned tours will be:

Sunrise Safari
Key's to the Kingdom
Epcot Around the World Segway Tour
Illuminations Fireworks Cruise

I'll post more as it all unfolds 327 days from now!!

Nannette- you plan the bestest trips!

Probably get raves from all of the kids. Except one!

Despite all my whining and complaining ... I am really looking forward to this trip!

Hi - just had to share my excitement even though it's probably not that big of a deal! We switched to CL, but we were only able to get Standard View with the 30% off discount. We wanted Garden. So I've been checking on line daily to see if it popped up and this morning it did. So I called and made the switch. Then I just checked again and it's gone again so I must have timed it just right. So excited!!

Thanks. Definitely lots of happy times together-think I'm just getting emotional today because I'm taking my mum out tomorrow and know I'll have to be strong for her and my youngest who is off school and misses his granda alot. He said today he wished he was here to watch Toy Story because it helped Granda have a wee doze

Nannette- you plan the bestest trips!

Bet the kids in your group do waaaay more than the others due to your WDW expertise

Thanks for the advice. I moved around 3 ADRs, but I feel much better knowing we won't be near MK during that time. It's cool that the President and Romney are going to speak at CR. I'll just watch from afar.

My son woke me up this morning to tell me that there are now 12 more sleeps until our Disney trip! I think that we all need this vacation so much. I can't wait! Although we have been to Disney several times, this will be our first Yacht Club stay and our first Star Wars Weekend.

Thanks so much to everyone for all of the info on this thread and its previous versions!

Exactly 5 months!!!

A week from now, I am on vacation, and will be packing...but not for Disney. Heading to Chicago for our 8th anniversary and then to southern IL for my niece's high school graduation. I'm not sure how it happened, because I'm pretty sure she just started kindergarten yesterday.

Northern Italy, where my DHs father is from. Tons of family there... We also have friends who moved to Slovenia last year so we might go there. I'm a bit overwhelmed with the thought of this trip with kids but the relatives are not getting any younger!

The first birthday (well the first anything) is so hard. I'm hoping today is not too difficult and you can keep thinking of happy memories.

Feckless it will be great. We took our then 8 year old to Holland, Sweden and London last summer. She did great and loved it. We bought her a smallish backpack (she is supper tiny) and everyday she carried her own water, snack, camera, itouch, jacket and whatever else she wanted. Never complained. We went to tons of museums etc Your kids will love it!

Good morning, BC/YC fans! Yay for the new thread and many thanks to Dee for setting up our new home again! Happy Threadwarming!

Theater performance weekend here (Dee knows how that goes) so just stopping by for a minute, but wanted to mention that I love Nanette's daughter's ADR list!

Hugs to lovepoohandcompany.

I'm hoping for some Pixie Dust as we just booked a pre-Christmas trip (Dec. 9-16), but BCV was not available. So, we got BWV, but waitlisted for BCV. Sure hope it comes through soon. We are going with friends and once they book, we will stick with whatever location they book their room. Would love to show them our favorite BCV. No matter what though, we'll be there to visit, as my husband's favorite dining location is Cape May Cafe. I sure hope this time we can finally meet Teena too.

As we get closer, I'll be looking for some advice on touring with friends.

Sorry folks, but I am not much of a post-er. I do read every link, though, and especially loved the recent Feckless daily reports. They made me feel like I was there. I was just in the hospital. Caught a bad bacteria and missed the last few days of pages before the new thread. But, I appreciated the way the first pages of this thread still contained all of the basic info (and priceless pictures of Princess Lilly when she was new!). We have been to the YC before, but there is always something new to learn. My something new today was the YC/BC DISer pin. Are they still available? Could I get one for my daughter? She loves pins collecting. Could someone fill me in?
