Wendy, I am starting to understand how you feel about the move to Hawaii. My son & DIL are in the early planning stages of a move to New Zealand. It will be for 1 to 2 years. I see a NZ trip in my future!
I was wondering if you were going to Camp Pendelton, that's not far from me.

Where in NZ are they moving to? It's a beautiful place we visited there about 15 years ago.

Thank you all so much for your thought regarding our friends passing. Hugs to you all. We will be at Shades of Green tonight for 5 nights then moving over to Beach Club and finishing off our trip at my beloved AKL. If any one has something they want me to check out at any of those resorts or in the parks just let me know. I'm happy to help as much as possible.

I am not quite awake, only got about 3 1/2 hours sleep. Hope I don't snore or drool on the plane. ROLFL. Hugs everyone.

Ann
Have a great trip Ann!!!!! Can't wait to hear about your husband's "surprise"!

Total(room only) $3,581.00

If I add on three 5-day base passes, it's an added total of $856.26, but I could get them at "UT" for $841.95 for 6-day base passes (or 5-day base passes for $808.08)! I still have to add on airfare and food....
Yikes! Makes me thankful for DVC!

I'd rent if I had the points and there were any availability!

This is not about AKL, but it is Disney and I think at least a few people here will understand my excitement. I just have to share with somebody or I will burst.

I have just received a serious amount of Pixie Dust. We got our room assignment for the November cruise earlier this week. Although I was happy with our assignment, it really annoyed me that I missed out on the Interline rate for a veranda cabin and a few days later they opened up again. Anyway, I decided to ring them today to make sure that the cruise documents go to my work address. I decided to be brave and ask if they would still let me upgrade and they said that was no problem. It cost me about $60 total to do so. Graham has no idea. I will keep this a surprise until it is time to go up to our cabin on November 10th. I can't wait to see his face.

Me too! But I am also hoping to be feeling better by next weekend: Our local Ale House is having their annual Oktoberfest and both our daughters are coming home! I want to feel good so I can enjoy my time with them.

Hello my friends, We arrived safely last night but a little late due to the storms in the south. Then we had to sit on the Tarmac because they didn't have a gate for us. LOL.
Today we got up around 8:30 pretty good for a first day and 3 hour difference. Had a quick breakfast in our room and headed to the Magic Kingdom. We were all ready for rain and not so great weather...it was a beautiful day. Partly sunny and no rain at all. Just rather hot and steamy. Hit all the big rides except for splash mountain...maybe tomorrow. Had lunch at Pecos Bills for the first time, amazing fixin bar!

The wireless is a bit here and gone. Hope this posts. I will go back and read to catch up. Hope you all are doing great.

Weather just said the weather tomorrow is rain in the afternoon then sunny through next week. Woohoo isn't that awesome.

Ann

Good morning Js & Ks! Happy Friday!


Elin - how wonderful that the girls will be home! Happy Oktoberfest!

Wendy - I know you are excited to see your little man again! Have a wonderful visit!

Corinna - Congrats on the upgrade and, I agree. A pic of DH's reaction would be priceless!

Ann - Thanks for checking in! We are all excited for you and your mystery trip!

Alison - I don't know where in New Zealand the kids are moving. They still have one more hurdle to cross in the application process (and according to DS, this part of the process costs about $2,000! )

Kathy - Hope you are feeling better.



One more work day here on the Base, then I am headed home tomorrow! Will have 3 whole days to get things caught up, then back on the road until 10/6. Then............ one day till WDW!!!!!
