If needed I will send the rest of the crew ahead and I and the baby (4mo old and nursing) will stay behind at the resort to do the application and then catch up with the rest of the crew an hour or two later.

There are 16 of us going and staying at Kidani (we r DVC) from 9/12 to 9/19. At last all the planning, shirt making, packing and 3 more night shifts before then is keeping me from dwelling on it too much.
I feel very similar to you! We leave this Sunday, and I will be bringing my laptop. We are staying at CBR and then move to AKL. 9/9-9/17 This is our first time at the animal kingdom so we are super excited! Hopefully it will bring us extra pixie dust to apply from there!

Monday would be awesome... leave it to Laura Spencer to do something crazy, like open it on a Wednesday. I love the speculating. It is all part of the process!

I figured it would be Monday, I think it's been the Monday after labor day for a few years now. How am I going to get anything done this weekend!? I'm already mentally answering questions in my head in preparation for Monday.


BTW~I am totally a spreadsheet mom, I even have backup spreadsheets! When you have little ones, especially when they are potty training, you're schedule always goes a little bit off course.

I'm torn about if I want to read my answers from last year. They were good enough to get me to round 2 but I am not sure if they will inspire me or get me caught up thinking about them over and over! Either way I'm excited and hoping to make some new friends along the way!

Don't do it! You don't want to obsess over what you did right or wrong last year right before you have to do it again!

If monday is the day, then I'll probably try to keep myself as busy a possible so I don't obsess over it.

My opinion on round 1 is not to rush it. This is when the most people are in it, so don't make any grammatical or spelling mistakes. If you want to use Word to check what you wrote, copy from the window, then paste into word, and make the changes in the window so you don't paste back.

Also IMO, any question that allows you to type in an answer, instead of just clicking on yes/no, true/false, etc., is an opportunity to show your personality and passion! Use that space!

Good luck everyone!!

I saw this... Very Interesting :o)

I figured that the date would probably be soon. I am not sure if I will apply, after year 5 last year, I am almost inclined to believe that it is not for me.

However, having said that, the whole process is interesting.
