Nevermind.....I finally saw how the corals are separated out. Ed will be in Coral B. If you get bumped up to Coral B, you should look for him. He'll be wearing black running shorts and a very BRIGHT yellow running shirt. Seriously, it's so bright it almost glows in the dark. And it says "Crescent City Classic". Also, I'm putting yellow LED shoelaces on his running shoes. He shouldn't be too hard to miss.

I will look for him.. it would be wild if I saw him. The disney sports rep said "probably would move me to B" I take to mean.. if too many people show up ahead of me to get their placement changed and have similar times it might mean C. C would be ok too. Still... thinking B would be better and so another 10k might be nice to run. The only one though might have a ton of hills and hills and I are not yet friends.

Yeah, I don't think I'd be ready for a run with hills.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get moved up to "B" with Ed!

Seriously you are burning through this PTR now. I saw you posted Fridays stuff yesterday and was going to put our Friday plans in and come back today and you are already on Saturday! I'm rethinking my Saturday plans of going to Epcot only because of opening weekend of Food and Wine. I'm so indecisive!

I'll post Room 2's Friday and Saturday at some point today.

When it comes to saturday, I am indecisive too!!! I don't know what to do! I certainly can't plan to sleep all day... but I am so afraid of overdoing it. maybe a lounge by the pool kind of day? I never take those... maybe that will be one of those firsts?

Mini rant

So I am a bit frustrated with myself right now. Last year this time I couldn't wait to get to WDW. I was counting down the days until our december trip. So I was constantly "doing" something productive for the trip. One of those "things" was I purchased a ridemax subscription. Did I need it in September? No. I wasn't even able to use it right away since my dates did not get released until mid to late october.

Fast forward to this trip where I didn't even get a countdown calendar done. The trip is totally sneaking up on me. I feel unprepared. I was however thinking I still had my one year subscription to ridemax. Kira started tinkering with ridemax and making plans. (those first couple days) However, as I started to try and tinker I noticed it was not showing dates past 9/29. At first I thought it had to do with later dates not being released yet. But that is not that long from now. I would think that they have dates released. Now I think it has to do with when I ordered the subscription

I sent an email asking, but I am pretty sure the answer I am going to get. Maybe I will be wrong though. (it has been happening lately) I think they should allow me access of use up until the date I purchased... but maybe they only let you have a little past? (I purchased on 9/17)

What gets me is really the fact I should have waited to order last year. I couldn't use it for some time...so those were wasted days.

Oh well.... rant over

It does seem to me like you should at least be able to use the ridemax through the date you purchased. Hopefully, they'll have good news when they email you back.

I feel like our trips are starting to come faster now. I need to start making packing lists so I can make sure I write down everything we need & so I can make a list of all the things I need to buy.

Oh - and if it makes you feel better, I still have some crafty things I haven't finished yet for our trip.

Sunday 9/30 - Day 6

Sunday 9/30 - Day 6

After such a late night, I will probably want sleep in while the girls will head to AK. This is probably going to be a bit of a challenge for Kira since she will have had Zoe for so long and getting Zoe ready in the morning can be a challenge with her L tube and then cathing etc. I am sure Kira will be at her point with it. So I may end up getting woke. AK opens at 9am. So I am sure even if they go without me (which is what I hope) I won't be far behind them.

I imagine I will be hungry once I get up. I had planned to just get a cupcake at Kusafiri Bakery and use a snack credit. Now though, I am wondering if it wouldn't be better to get up and have a big breakfast.. I suspect Betsy's plan is to sleep in longer than I will. So I went ahead (just now) and made an ADR for 1 at




I am actually pretty excited about this. I am sad no one will eat there with me and a bit of trepidation over whether or not I may feel up to making my way (alone) to Epcot and then heading over to BW to the restaurant. But... thinking about it... I could go to DHS and then the boat would take me right to BW. That sounds better and quicker, right? What I am really excited about though is the menu!!!

My ADR at Kouzzina is at 10:30am. I think the girls can plan on using sc's to purchase those cupcakes (or pastries).

With the start to the day done and breakfast had, the girls and I will synch up at
where we have an ADR for lunch at 12:30. Now, I know... I will have ate and then immediately will go to lunch? No. What I plan is to just get something simple and pay oop for it. I didn't want Yak and Yeti anyway. I didn't enjoy my meal there either of the two times I have been and where Betsy has a lunch ADR for is not better for me. Since I also will have paid oop for my breakfast, I will bank a ts credit

Our afternoon will then be spent at AK. I am not sure what we will accomplish. Since the girls will have been there since rd, I don't want them to have to go back to do anything just for me.

After we finish up in AK, we will go back to POFQ to get our costumes for MNSSHP. What costumes are we wearing? It is a bit up in the air yet. Originally, we planned to all be a different princess. Then there was talk of an overall theme for each room. Then Kaylani decided on Jessie from Toy Story and then Shelly decided on something completely separate from the group. So to simplify things, Kira and I thought about costume aprons (easy to pack easy to change into and easy to wear on rides) Betsy isn't into the apron thing, so I am not sure what she and her cousin, Lisa will be doing. I also wonder if the aprons will work since someone on Etsy has to make them and then ship them (not to mention the added cost). I got to thinking that Dalmatian tutus would be easy and cheap (since I still have a ton of white tule from the wedding) Amanda and Kira are not so into those though. So who knows what we will end up with!

After we get ready for the party, we will head to MK. Dinner will be at


I really like the sandwich there. I can't wait!

Before the official start of the party, we will have to get inline to see some Dwarfs. I kinda failed at that last December at MVMCP. I can't let Betsy down again.

The party will be fun and we will do our best to partake of all the activities before calling it a night.

Room 2 - Friday, September 28th - Day 1

Shelly, Kaylani, Lisa, and I will be meeting at the airport for our 7:45am flight on



Lisa and I will be traveling to the airport together and Shelly and Kaylani will be as well. We'll be checking two bags each (thank you Southwest ) I spent the $10 on early bird check in for myself. I'm going to get only 24 hours in advance to check my cousin in and Shelly has a kid 5 and under, so the plan is for me to grab our four seats. I have some strange plane phobias and have to sit on a certain side of the plane and sitting too close to the front makes my head hurt with the take off and landing. So Lisa, Shelly, and Kaylani will come whenever they can and head back to where I have our seats.

When we get off the plane, its probably to the restroom and then headed off to:



Where we'll head to POFQ to check in to our handicapped accessible room, Shelly had both knees replaced so this will be helpful for her. From there, we'll probably drop off our bags to the room or bell services and hopefully we'll all head to the WWOS. If Lisa decides on something else that's fine. Hopefully we'll get there around the same time as Ann and Zoe. Then its off to pick up our bibs and hopefully get our corral placement changed. I"m not sure what Lisa, Shelly, or Kaylani are going to do, but I'd like to spend some time checking out the expo.

From there I thought I'd take the bus over to Beach Club/ Boardwalk? Whatever the deluxe host hotel is so I can go to Cape May for dinner. I'm hoping Ann and Kira will agree to switch Cape May and Boma days.

Being that we'll be getting up super early and getting up for the kid's races tomorrow I think I might be going out of bed early tonight? But who knows!

All of y'alls plans are sounding great!

I do hope you get to rest some that Sunday morning. I am really jealous of your breakfast ADR at Kouzzina's. I have been wanting to try breakfast there but it never seems to work out. Sorry to hear you haven't had good meals at Yak & Yeti. Seems like I usually hear good things about that place. I'll probably make us try it.....one day.

MNSSHP on 9/30....another possible day we may run into each other! I think the Dalmatian tutu idea is cute.

Plans are moving along well. I know how you feel though. I'm just not into the planning as much (I usually have redone my itineary at least five or six times by now, and I've only done it twice ).

I really want to try Kouzzina one of these trips. I'm sorry you didn't like Yak & Yeti (we loved it there the time we ate there).

Bummer about the Ridemax subscription. I hope you are able to get the additional days for your trip.

Kouzinna has a really yummy breakfast. Everything on the menu looks amazing. Good luck deciding.

And good luck on deciding on costumes.

yeah for SWA and two bags. I love SAW and I am happy to be flying them in October.

Great plans ladies!
