We have a busy brand new thread today! We’re already on page 6!


Kook –Congrats on Yacht Club CL decision! Excellent choice if I do say so myself! Inquiring minds want to know if this plan is written in ink or pencil???

Basketlacey, Hope you’re able to work out PL. It looks like loads of fun!
Missoutandabout-Loved your HGTV inspired writeup.

Missoutandabout and Jungle cruiser, It's so nice we can share ideas here! JC, What you said about going with your gut, but don’t let them embarrass themselves I think is spot on.
In some ways, I've found it kind of reassuring to know that they are always a work in progress. Just when I think I've got it reasonably well figured out, they are still growing, changing…even into young adulthood.

Stepdisney-I hearby pinky swear I will happily read your trip reports.

Always good to chat with all the sweet RCers. You guys are the best!

For those who want to throw in the towel on other threads - please don't let a few incidents keep you from enjoying the boards. I know, easy to say when you aren't "in it" and I have had plenty of episodes of hurt feelings or...well, let's just say it, anger!...from a scolding here or there for what seems to me so little. Overall, though, most of the posters are kind and eager to help, even those who are sometimes a little touchy. Try not to take it to heart.

For what it's worth, you are all welcome over on the GF FAQ.

Long story short, I am sooo lucky, have a scraped and banged up chin, cuts on my palm and sore wrist. Went right over to my oncolgists office and had the nurses look at me (one of the few benefits of cancer, you can always be seen right away!), they cleaned me up and made sure I was okay. Just sore and scraped up. I look like I was in a fight

So excited about the new thread. Please, please let me know about any changes. So far there are some close calls, my vote is for KOOK to change first, who is with me?!
I'm sorry I missed this earlier, I plead guilty to skimming. So sorry for your fall and, probably, scare. Glad you are mostly OK. I feel for you, I fell in the middle of Chicago while visiting my oldest son last month - so embarrassing and he and DD seemed so worried, but I was OK. Like you, a little worse for wear. Take good care of yourself, my friend.

Thanks for the heads up, Jeanette!

Hi, everybody! Sorry I haven't posted much lately! I do try to catch up as much as possible when I can. I have been very consumed with planning our trip for Sept/Oct. I think I finally have everything the way I want it. So, hopefully, I'll have more posting time!

I think a Friday party might be crazier crowd-wise..... so the 30th it was for us! Hope you get to the party, it would be a blast for your kiddos...... I even think Amandaw might be hitting up the 30th party too, we where talking about meeting up for QS at CHH in MK before the party starts getting into fullswing....I haven't heard from her for awhile, so I'll have to check and see if the plan is still the same
Hey! We will indeed be at the party on Sept 30th! I've already printed out party tickets! We will be dressing up.....I will be Wendy Darling, my DH will be Mr. Smee & our son is going as Cpt. Hook. I'm soooo excited for this party!!! We are spending the day at the resort. And will head to MK at some point after 4pm.

We're barely missing y'all! We leave on Sunday, Oct. 7th to head home. Are y'all dressing up?

Wow! I get home from work and we are on page 7? You guys are amazing! I just wanted to say a few things before giving DH some special attention...

Miss: I go through the same thing with the clothes. If it is really something I feel strongly that they shouldn't wear to school, I will tell them "that is a home shirt, not a school shirt". Know it sounds simple. But for some reason it seems to work over here. . I think we remember our own school time embarrassments and don't want our DD's to suffer through them.

Dani: Don't stop posting on the Poly thread! I need you over there! We can have our own secret code if you want!

Have a good nite ladies...you all are the best!

Ahhhhh....I see how it is....I go on vacation and you all up and move the thread!! (using exclamation points)

Hope you're all doing well! We did something today that we've never done on our Disney trips...we spent the entire day at the resort!!! Except for a couple of hours at DTD (my poor wallet)...

That is one thing we have noticed in our first deluxe resort...we want to be here more....and though we loved our value stays, we never just wanted to "hang out" at them...

I know exactly what you mean. We experienced the same thing when we stayed at CBR after staying at Pop. Then when we went deluxe, forget it. DS would spend the entire day at the resort swimming, playing, snacking in the lounge, and watching movies on the beach at night and the fireworks from the pool at the Poly. It's just totally different!

No need to get up in arms about changing threads. Your exclamation points are offensive to me.

I am so glad you are having fun! Hopefully your wallet will heal soon! Was it nice and relaxing? I wouldn't mind just relaxing if I was at a deluxe resort. I find deluxes to be more relaxing than hustle and bustle like the values.

The kids are going to eat the candy (and some adults too ), you stand a better chance of getting something healthy in them before you go!!!
Missoutandabout, it helps and I love it!!!! This is great information and I'm off to reconsider my ADRs right now - I think we need a bigger meal pre-party. (Amanda, I think I've done more ADR changing for that short trip than I've ever done before!)

JC, our boys are so excited about the parade that we decided to get to the early parade so that our youngest doesn't fall asleep and miss it AND so that our older boys can see it twice if they love it as much as they think they will! Love to hear that you enjoy it so much you've been four times! Did you dress up?

Love your thread - always so welcoming! After October, GF will be the only remaining deluxe on my bucket list - waiting for the construction to end and we'll be there!

Hi Amanda! Can't wait to see your MNSSHP photos - great costume idea! Did you find a Wendy costume yet? We're dressing up, too. At first, it was just the kids dressing up, then my mom said we simply MUST pick a theme and dress up accordingly. (My parents were at F&W last year and saw families in costume heading to MNSSHP.) So our oldest is the Mad Hatter, middle son is Tweedle Dee, youngest is Tweedle Dum and I'm Alice. My husband is undecided - he's rejected our Cheshire Cat idea and now we're lobbying for some version of the White Rabbit!

Mousemommy, keep having a wonderful time!

It seems like no matter how long or short a trip is, it's just so hard to decide on ADRs. There are just so many good places to try. And then, trying to get the perfect ADR time. It's just too easy to make changes!

I LOVE y'alls costume theme! I think the White Rabbit is a great option for your DH. Hopefully, he'll go along with it for y'all!

I could not find a Wendy costume. Well, I lie....I could but there were problems with the 2 I found. The first one I found on a costume website was for "sexy" Wendy. UH.....no. Then, I did find a real Wendy costume on Etsy. They wanted $185!! I think not! Thankfully, my best friend is wonderful & she sews a lot so she is making my Wendy dress for me. She found a pattern that had the basic silhouette of the dress that she was able to use as a basis. She's still working on it & I can't wait to see it all finished!

My problem with ADRs is that I want to eat at mostly EPCOT restaurants, and then I also like to eat CS so unless I do nothing but eat the entire trip, something just has to get cut!

Your costume is a great idea! I want to be princess Leia for the Halloween party this year, but all the ones I see are ummm ... not appropriate for WDW, or frumpy drape type costumes. What's a girl to do? Hmmmm perhaps I can find someone to make me one too! My mom sews......

It is very hard to narrow down where to eat in EPCOT. There are just too many good choices there. I had to cut Chefs de France off our list for this year & was quite sad that yet again I won't be trying it. Oh well....another reason to go back, right?

Thanks!

We were originally going to do Star Wars! Yeah, the skimpy Princess Leia costumes....I don't think so. I was going to go with the white dress fo hers from a New Hope but then I kept reading about how see-through it is & some people said the slit came up really high if you have short legs. So, I had to cross it off my list. I'm kind of glad I did because I'm really excited with our theme now. You should definitely talk to your mom about whipping up some costumes!

It got cut last year because we were just too tired and it was too hot to imagine walking ALL the way to France to eat soup. This year I am going if I have to sit on a skateboard and have my mom tow me on her ECV. Now THERE is a mental image for ya!
