As a matter of fact DS barely had any friends this year in his class, but he made new friends of course! DD and her BF we were not together this year either, but she barely skipped a beat as she turned to me and said, there are only 2 people I dont know in my class and that is becauase they are new this year. She is my social butterfly and knows everyone. Kids are resilient and I am sure DD will bounce right back!

Candace So out of the blue DD wakes up this morning and says to me that she made her decision and def wants to do her bday again at Disney. She must have felt those New England vibes in her sleep last night You may have to bring down some Parker’s maple syrup for me. Now lets just hope DH and the kids love YC as much as I think they will so I can book it again for April

Happy Monday to everyone else! Enjoy your day!

Melissa
Ooh I hope they do!!!! I'll have to make a New England care package for you!!!

How often do you check?

Okay so I was playing around with my Oct reservation and realized if I could manage to get a garden view instead of a water/lagoon view at YC I could save about $130 for the 2 nts, the problem however is that there are only water/lagoon view rooms and higher at both YC and BC for that weekend (as well as many others). Our original weekend sat in a higher rate season so it was only a $40 diff between GV and WV for the weekend that was better for DH so we jumped on it. Do you think I have any chance of a GV or even standard room opening up? How often should I check?

Melissa

Happy Labor Day to everyone! Big week coming up for lots of families, schools are opening, at least in our area.

Jennyjinx, so glad you and DH has a great weekend. Good luck with school and the girls, they will be fine, it's you waiting at home to find out how things go is the tough part! Now then, single digit dance for you The Polynesian awaits!



missoutandabout, love the luminaries, I am so impressed , and I may just get to see them in person

gwynne, congratulations on being a grandmother again. So exciting

Dani, so happy for you that your work environment has improved. Sorry about the TA restrictions, but maybe that will change.

taraPA, am I correct that you were the one who stayed in a BC deluxe room and helped me with pictures of it months ago?! If so, I requested one of the two rooms with the oversized balconies, fingers crossed!

babyberger, you can always check but there is no answer to the probability of a room becoming available. The fact that it is an EPCOT resort during F&W probably lessens your chance, but hey, you never know!

pas, hope you are feeling better and getting around better! I assume the kids are all going back to school this week?!

janet, I know we chatted but wanted to let you know I have been thinking about you. Hope you had a wonderful family weekend!

To everyone I missed

Can I just start this post with a big whiney "I wanna go back to Disneyyyyy!!!"


Okay, so we go back to school Thursday. Not really looking forward to the early mornings. Now it's back to only "sleeping in" on Sundays (which is only around 9:30 anyway ).

Wednesday we are going to the Rainforest Cafe in Menlo Park. Danimal was saying how sad is he to be missing Disney so much and I mentioned we have a Rainforest Cafe just like the 2 in Disney. He asked if we could go and of course I said yes. Wednesday night kids eat for $1.99, so we will be going to give us some Disney spirit.`

Yeah I was thinking that too, but maybe I will get lucky, I'll just keep checking.

Enjoy your ALMOST Disney dinner



Well I booked April after DD told me that she does definitely want to celebrate her bday in Disney again. I just wish her bday fell during a value season It used to be that taking her to CRT and BBB was cheaper than a party....but now that I am on a deluxe stay roll, I think we would have been better with a party So for right now we are booked with Candace at YC. But who knows if that will stay once DH realized how much money we have spent on Disney trips

Wishing all those who start school tomorrow a big good luck!!

Melissa

Yes that's me!!!! We were in 2557...but 4557 also has the HUMUNGO balcony (is that a word!???!) We had 6 people out there one afternoon & could have easily fit 6-8 more. We couldn't have picked a better location (for us) - we LOVE LOVE LOVE the BC quiet pool, and I do laundry on vacation & that's right there at the quiet pool too. Plus it's thisclose to the IG, we'd send the boys over into Epcot just for snacks, drinks or lunch & they'd be back with it in 15 min!

When are you going?!? I haven't been on the BC/YC thread for awhile. I did get to meet Teena a few times while down there.

I can't believe the summer is officially over! I am sending my DH off for his 2 week European adventure in England in 4 days, then when he gets home, it'll be only 5 days until my boys and i leave on our Disney adventure!!!! I managed to get some US texting time, so Jeanette and Janet, I'll be able to say HI to you in "Disney real time" when I am there

ONLY 1 more day and my DS16 is off to GRADE 11!!!!!! where did time go!??? it slips by so fast! One more reason I want to cherish my time with my boys on this trip! MY oldest, DS 20, just came home from his red eye softball tourney (he played at all hours of the day/night the last three days)-- and he plopped on the couch, while he ate some quick supper and said to me "are ya getting excited for parasailing, MOM?" ME: uhhhh, yes, I'm trying to not be too scared and get excited!
JOSH: well I'm stoked!!!!
ME: glad to hear son! hope I can join the excitement when the time comes! ** as I quiver inside,

Thanks Melissa! I actually remembered what you said about tues/wed and was checking airfare at 6 am. Still no drops! :-(

Unfortunately jet blue doesn't fly from anywhere near here either! But, I feel better about it.

We told our kids about the trip over the weekend. We have decided that if prices don't drop, we are going to drive. It's 12 hours which is doable and we will extend our stay by a day as well. Dh even said we could keep our Cali Grill ressie and leave right after dinner. We will drive several hours and then get a room and drive the rest of the way on Sunday. I still may try and score Cali for another night and then we could leave after our Cape May breakfast or maybe after lunch. We have to be home by 2. I think it will work!

The kids are super excited and are working on tweaking ADRs and planning park days. I am more excited now too because I am not frantic about the airfare.

Yay for telling the kids!! We are telling our girls one week from today! I wish we were within a 12 hour drive....try double that for us....boo! We have been talking about doing a big drive for our summer trip next year and DH wants no part of a big drive. He thinks it would be pure torture if the DD's bicker too much.

So....as of this morning, DH is saying if it costs the same to vacation here he would rather go to Disney in May. I think we will reassess after our trip....which by the way is in...
8 days!!!!

I received an email from Southwest today saying I was getting advance notice on a 25% off sale .... should start tomorrow. Very limited dates and I believe it's thru Dec 12th. Hope this helps someone!

Hello lovely, crazy RCing ladies!


Jen & Candace: for first day jittery moms. Y'all are pros at this by now though. Hope they all have great first days at school.

Jeanette: How's the ankle? Hope you're doing better.

Sarah: Joining you in dancing with Jen! Love that pic!

Candace: I love your latest change! Epcot & MK resorts, best of both worlds.

Thanks, ladies. I finished up the letter from Mickey & Minnie after doing my Martha Stewart impersonation with the luminaries. I'll make sure I take pics of the set-up when I'm done that afternoon, Sarah. Just got to come up with a good plan to get the two nosy ones out of the room .... hmmm. Maybe an, "Oh, I left my camera in the room! Be back in a few minutes" sorta thing?

She assured me that she hasn't even read my file because she wants to give me a fair chance and isn't evaluating me based on other people's opinions. She is a very nice woman, and I do really like her.
I'm so happy to hear you like your new location... and even better, your new boss!

I hear ya on the sleeping in thing. I'm seriously wondering if my kiddo will ever learn to sleep in. Have any of you mommies ever had kiddos change from early-risers to sleep-in'ers as they got older? As well as the weekend, she had yesterday AND today off: 7:00 on the dot. (Sorry, except for the one morning she slept in 'til 7:15... Eesh.)

Might want to place that call soon as I'm now down to the kiddo's portion on the attire spreadsheet (the hubs can fend for himself.)

You can do it, you can do it! (You are a brave, brave woman!) Your trip is mega-close too. Hope your hubs has a good time in Ol' Blighty, we were just there in May visiting the in-laws.

Missoutandabout all you have to do is tell one of the Concierge CM's what you are trying do do and I know they can help you think of something. The BC CL CM's are great, they love to help with this kind of stuff. And if you are feeling shy I will talk to them with you!
