Mrs Grumpy, I hope you don't lose your job! That would be just terrible! Sending good thoughts your way and hoping everything works out for you. My husband just recently got a job after 22 months of unemployment, so I know how scary it is, wouldn't wish it on anyone.
I will take all the good thoughts you have! I am a really big worrier also so that doesn't help. I just hate the unknown. I am very comfortable in my job and am content to stay there forever. I have been there for 12 years so far. I just keep praying every night that everything will be OK.

To keep myself from obsessing too much this early I have been working on some crafty things to fill some of the time. My first item of business was to create a planning journal/ smash book! Here is what I have done so far!

That is the front cover. Tried to keep it simple on the front, as I suspect it will be getting a lot of handling!

The back cover!

My favorite page so far! You can also see the little tabs I made from some of those Disney paint samples.

I have a bunch more pictures if you want to see more. It has turned out so cute so far! I think my next project is going to be a countdown calender of some sort! Anyone else done anything crafty for their vacation?
I love it! Would love to see more pictures.

After cancelling this September due to baby on the way...we changed to May. And now after thinking long and hard, I really LOVE September...low crowds, MNSSHP...possible free dining...I am thinking of postponing May and doing September!

This will be DH's and our new baby's first trip so I am hoping for the best possible experience.

We don't have any dates pinned down yet, since we just decided to switch months. But we are leaning towards Pop or a Mod. Just not sure yet.

princessmommymouse------LOVE the planning book!!
Thanks for joining us! Congrats on the baby. I hope you can share some pics.

Got a little grumble that I have to get out.

My SIL has decided that they will not be joining us at Disney world.
That's fine, their loss, no skin off my nose.

However, instead, during the same dates, they will be going to Disneyland. And guess what, they are paying for my in-laws to join them!

SO ANGRY!!!!

We have been planning this trip for almost a year now, and my in-laws were fairly certain they could save up the money to join us. My husband is still in school, so we don't have a lot of money, and if we could help pay we would. It makes me so angry that just because my BIL makes five times as much as we do their kids get to experience Disney with their grandparents and ours do not.

Anyone else have someone like that in their family? Someone who has to out do you? Someone who has to take your plans and try to ruin them?

We don't have anyone in the family, but my boss seems to take my vacation ideas and books them about a month before we go. Happens every year.

I'm sure you'll get another chance to get everyone to Disney World. The in-laws are just going to the Land, ya'll will be experiencing the World together. I would think they'd be way more wowed with Disney World!

We've booked for Sept 11th - 15th at the Polynesian. Can't wait to celebrate our 25th anniversary there.
OOPS...I'm booked Sept 8th - 13th, I was thinking of our Feb trip that may or may not happen (long story)

Just mad that they would decide not to join us AND book a different trip the same dates. If they were going any other dates I would be totally fine with it, but they HAD to choose the same ones. We have already requested time off, and booked our trip, so changing our dates is much more difficult. Plus I chose them for a reason, it has our unofficial anniversary during those dates, is low crowds, and value season prices, with a chance of free dining, and we get the Halloween party that my son has been asking to go to for TWO YEARS. My MIL is not super healthy, so scheduling it within two weeks either side would still mean they don't join us. They live in another state, and that was going to be the only time that year my kids got to see them.
Darn SIL just has to get everything her way, and she has the money to do it.

And seriously TEN DAYS at Disneyland???? That is just a recipe for boredom! You can almost do everything there is to do in three days during that time of the year! Spending twice as much, for half the parks just doesn't makes sense to me.

Just feel bad for my kids. They were looking forward to seeing Grammy and Grandpa even more than the Disney world part!

Princessmommymouse - I agree, 10 days at Disneyland will have them bored.

Smile_4213 - We hope to see you there. Maybe we can meet up at the pool (or bar) sometime that week.

Hi All! Newbie here.

We're booked at the BC - Deluxe Club Level from 9/21 - 9/28. This is our first trip and we're already excited, a year out!

I did College Program at HS (then MGM) in the summer of 1992 (Great Movie Ride and Keystone Clothiers)...so 20 years since I've been back! Wowza!

DH's head is spinning with all the information I've thrown at him over the last couple months, deciding on dates, resort etc.

The boards are an AMAZING resource! Thanks to each of you that post tips/tricks....your knowledge is so appreciated!

Hi there! new here looking forward to trip planning. I haven't been to wdw since i was a kid and looking forward to going with DH and my 2 boys!

Looking at 9/15-9/21/13.

CBR looks like a good fit for our family.
Would prefer a room only discount as my kids eat like birds and we can try to do yes program tix, but worst was we will do free dining.

Unfortunately will probably do offsite if we can't do either of the above. We are flexible with dates, so I am optimistic it will work out!

Looking forward to getting to "know" you all!
