We use a white noise app on our phone or IPad...God forbid we sleep in a SILENT room in my family!!!

I bring a small hepa filter and that helps for white noise and to freshen up the room.

trishadono - congrats on getting everything together and finding decent rates for room and air! It really is tough to coordinate two school schedules with the Holiday rates - we did the same one year and waited until after the 1st for the better deals.

I wish I could help with the tickets, I am clueless about the new rules for Magic Bands and FPs. We usually buy our tix through Undercover Tourist if we do not have/are not buying APs, it is usually the cheapest option.

Syndrome - We take ear plugs with us, in case anyone needs to block out the noise. At the UO resorts, we are able to ask for fans from Star Services, but I don't think we've ever asked at WDW - not sure why! You could ask this question of IPO, if you do so please report back!

PrincessDisneyMom - what type of Hepa filter do you use? I'd love to be able to tote one along, but didn't realize they were in portable form.

Thanks K&A&C's Mom. I wonder if our tickets need to be attached to our "disney experiences" and if so, will tickets purchased elsewhere like UT will work?

Hmmm has to be someone that knows

Well I am going to UT and price compare. Last time I did it was about the same but worth looking. Enough dissers use it so it must be reputable.

UT is a WDW-approved seller - very reputable, we've used them for years as have friends. Your best price will be when you subscribe to the Mousesavers newsletter, they have a designated link to UT that gives lower prices. They have good UO tix prices, too.

Have you checked out the Theme Parks Board for your FP/MDE questions? They have the best info, Cheshire Figment works in GS and is able to help with most tix questions. They may even have a sticky for this subject, I haven't been over there lately so can't say for sure.

Be home for Christmas

And have time to visit with friends

And not pay the ASTRONOMICAL rates at the end of December.

Problem was VGF only bookable 10/23-12/31... Until finally opened up for January!

So we taking jetblue direct on New Year's Day (Wednesday) and dh and ds16 will fly home Sunday 1/5. We got the VGF 2bdrm lake view and rate reasonable for all days except the 1st. We still can see some of the holiday decor and will have less crowds for parks too!

Then dd18 and I were able to use points for our return only if we flew home on the 8th. so we just have to stay a few days for our girl time. I am going to watch for a deal then with hopes of finally getting RPC! If not maybe Hawaii again or maybe even try BWI CL.

Phew! It is hard to find reasonable airfare, room to accommodate our fussy guys, reasonable room rate and everyone's schedules.

Couldn't do it without everyone's help.
Sounds like an amazing trip.....glad everything is coming together nicely .

My brother is a champion snorer! When we used to go together to our moms condo to visit, I made him buy those strips you put across your nose. They worked. Otherwise his snore could take down walls!!

I happened to notice someone mentioning signing up for mousesavers just this morning and signed up. Good to hear a second opinion from a reliable source.

I have never been to the Theme Parks Board but I guess I am getting desperate. What if some people in the party have annual passes and others don't? Just when we think we know what we are doing..BAM, now it is a whole new ball game with these MagicBands!!!

Didn't find any ticket info over there but now I must have the Vera Bradley for Disney bags

Going back to the DVC board they seemed to have some good info last week, it was just getting so long I got lost

Well at least I have time to learn, only 160 days.

Oh and I got Tea Room for DD and I and of course our 2nd time at BOG!!

I like Tea Room the best. Chocolate covered strawberries and champagne here I come. DD loves the scones!!
