A Room With A View- July 2012 PTR - And we're off!

Hey there! Hi there! Oh there! You're as welcome as can be!

Welcome to my ptr, new comers. Welcome back, dis friends.

Our traditional July trip is in preparation. Well let's just say that when we come home from a trip we get into preparation mode even though we don't book until around November.

Our best ever trip was in December 2007, and my mom and I both know it will be very hard to top. But oh well, we are trying. And it'll take as many trips as it has to

This trip started out with just my mom and I. We had originally booked POR. We have stayed there on previous trips and love the mansions part. Our absolute favorite is the CR, but in order to try and save some money, we decided to be reasonable and book POR.

Well..... our first idea was this:

July: My mom and I would go and save some money by staying at POR. Save money for what?

December: For Christmas we'd go as a family (my parents and I, since I'm an only child), and might stay at the CR.

Well come January, my dad decided that he wanted to come too. So we booked his flight and when it was time to add him to our room ressie he decided we'd be staying concierge at the CR.

So let's just say that for now, there are no talks about going in December. But I'm so not complaining. I am happy to go along with what they decide. Whatever it is, I'll follow as long as I get to Florida and WDW.

So we are going to be in WDW July 15 to 25.

And we are flying Air Canada from the Montreal airport.

I'm here!

We always fly Air Canada, but with all the problems they've had lately (impromptu mini strike, Aveos, etc.) we are thinking of trying something new next time...

Signing up.

Contemporary is one of my dream resorts.

ADR's looking great. Some friends just came back from a DWD trip and Via Napoli was their favorite meal.

Hello! I'm here! And our trips totally overlap, by the way. We fly in the 19th and we are out the 26th. Perhaps we'll have to see if our paths are going to cross at any time. I would love to say hi!

I would love to stay at the Contemporary...and MK view with concierge...well, that just sounds like heaven!

Hey guys.

These past days have been crazy here.

The weather was unlike anything we've ever seen.

More about it here: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montre...eal-storm.html

So anywayz... the school basement was flooded. So we had an unexpected day off which was great. I managed to be productive: Had brunch with a colleague, did some trip shopping, some cleaning and now I'm going to go grade papers.

I would have liked to have tomorow off too since I've been feeling ill for a week or two (head aches, tummy aches and nausea). Most of all I think it's from the heat and just being plain tired.

But 45 days from now I'll be in WDW and I've got 16 work days left. Gotta power through.

I'll soo post about the cast of this upcoming trip and some fashion buys for the trip if ya'll are interested

You know what.. we did the MK view a few times without being concierge and we loved it. But last time we got Bay Lake side and noticed we preferred it. Why? We can actually spend some time on the balcony since the sun is not always blazing on that side. And the lounge is on MK side, so it fits us
