DANI! you just need to catch a break from all this illness! I hope this clears up in time for you to enjoy your trip! You sooooo need the break! Praying healing thoughts for ALL of you!

Just for fun, I decided to price some changes/ new resorts (I am a RCer, right! ) just to see if there where any better/ similar things available for my dates.....you know, with our Sis MM loving WL CL and all.......I got a little wheels turning in my head!"....................OH WELL, didn't take long to put the brakes on any ideas of change! every scenario is $2,000 to $3,000 more than I am paying for my FD Poly CL pkg! Anyone who tells me FD isn't a good deal at a deluxe will be getting the look.......because, this Yr it's the BEST deal out there for us! It is literally saving us a heap! Approx $1600 or more! I am so glad I booked when the Canadian offer was out, because if I'd have waited, I'd only be able to get it starting on the 30 of Sept! THE CdN offer was earlier into Sept, so I got it for our whole stay from Sept 28 to Oct 4, so it really worked out better for us.....even room discount doesn't come close to the savings that FD did!

I guess I can officially say I am done looking at other scenarios for this trip I've been settled at the POLY since about Jan now......and I'll be staying put Such a hard problem to have , eh?

Sarah, please stop beating people up at the hairdressers...seriously, glad you are OK. Rest my friend...some healing vibes coming your way

I have several rockin' nicknames for our Lodge Tempress

I can just picture Sarah smiling as she reads this

I liked FWC also, but I'd rather do AoA...not that I'm encouraging anyone to change....

I love this split....




Those walking sticks are neato...but it wouldn't match your GF decor at home...maybe a parasol

No reason is insane...keep calling! Something will open up!!!!!

You did fine IMHO, and she will be A-OK. She may be a hit with boys though watch out...

We did Oct. 31...it was great!!! But, alas it was 2003 I think. Sold out...not crowded, free chocolate. Great parades, fireworks, characters, short lines...only problem. DS was asleep in the stroller by 915pm and a little rain...so our night was cut short.


No worries, I'll copy & paste as it updates...and save it to page 1!
About time heather JK, I was starting to worry LOVE the Poly pic!

You are the voice of reason on the Poly thread...don't stop posting, sis...but I totally understand....here, GF, WL the only safe threads on the Dis...and some VIP TRs of course...

I get mad when I see my family getting attacked...I go into Mommy mode



I am SO bad with pinky swears..but step, you have a heart felt promise that I will subscribe to your TR
You know I love ya!

It's becoming a dilemma in my mind for 2013.

Poly vs GF

Highly recommend the GF thread

And I am very sensitive to those little grouchy comments, I have to breathe, and really think of a reply that is not nasty, and diplomatic (yes I get nasty when I am mad)

We know where to find you! Don't be sorry, we all get busy....I just wanted to be sure you knew where our new home is!

Dh and I fought for an hour last night because I don't give him enough attention....I still feel sad this morning....

I liked hanging at Pop too...All Stars not as much, so glad you had the opportunity to hang at WL....

Now I am late getting out the door...

Gotta run, but I wanted to mention I got a flyer from Loews yesterday...40% off rooms at any Universal hotel Aug 15-Dec 15th.....why can't WDW send me one. Now HRH wants a split stay
pas I am always getting deals for lowes but I don't think I got that one, have to go check I think that would make me change to PBR

That's a nice discount, Sheila! If I wasn't already getting an amazing manager deal for our HRH room ( free upgrade to CL and a deluxe queen room) at $159 per night! --- I'd be looking for that pin too!!!

THIS we HAVE to see!!! Will Danimal take a pix for us?

Marie: Dress up as much or little as you would like for MNSSHP. A quick outfit is a hippie, a tie dye shirt, comfortable jeans (have the kids use sharpies and write some flower power sayings on them, headband, glasses, some peace signs, and you are good to go! Don't sweat it, you will look great no how or little you dress up!!

Amanda: Love your costume ideas!! I'm sure you all will look fabulous ... how nice of your friend to make a costume for you!!

Basket Lacey: Love the pirate idea for MNSSHP!! We went to the Pirate & Princess party a few years back and loved it!! Of course we went as Pirates! Arrrrrgh!!!

No, we have never dressed up...we haven't gone with little kids and if you knew my husband you wouldn't ask that We bought the CD years ago of the Party Music, so I have the Hallowishes music and the Boo to You Parade music loaded on my iTunes. If anyone wants me to make them a CD, just PM me your address and I will send it along. It is so easy to do and it would be my pleasure! I already made Janet one...warning the songs are addictive!
And I listen to it almost every day ... it never fails to make me feel better! Thank you again dear Sarah!! So happy you are feeling in good spirits today!!

We were talking about maybe going to US and staying @ PBR in 2013 but a good discount like that would have me there this trip. Even with FD I just hate to spend $500 a night for the room, ya know? It still breaks down to $400 + a night since there are only 2 of us getting FD.

LOVE it!




What a nice grandma. Sophia is so lucky to have you.



Right? How do you squeeze everything in?!



Universal really is the dark side.

Don't be sad sis. You're a busy mama providing for your family.
Dani Sending you lots of healing thoughts.....did that Boss of yours give you the Evil Eye or What?

Yes, that's a great discount! and I love the dark side too......soo much fun and the resorts are top notch
I can see what you mean about FD for 2, it worked out so well for us this year because we are 4 adults!

Whoa, look at all I've missed!

Good afternoon to all! It's Friday, Friday, Friday... (imagine that in one of those 'Monster Truck' voices for the right effect.)

This sounds like a glorious split. Enjoying both MK and Epcot.

Yeah, we had to take time out from the party because we hadn't had enough to eat beforehand... that and not seeing Captain Hook at the Villain's Dance Party are really the only things I'd do differently. It's such a fabulous time any way you slice it though.

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!
I adore this idea! Please post pics if you can!

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!
Adore this too! I hear ya about Etsy. Some very cute things but some can have outrageous price tags.

I vote for Leia. The white dress... maybe a home-sewn with not as high a slit?

They have some really cute shirts in the shops at Halloween. The past two years I've *almost* bought one but have held back. Each year they've had at least a couple of quite attractive shirts to choose from.

-----------------

All this talk of parties and dressing up! Getting me excited. Nothing fancy, but we went as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles last year and the kiddo went as Jessie. Ours were quite simple, just costume t-shirts and regular shorts so we could stand the heat. Hers was an Etsy creation in all cotton. This year, I'm going as a Gryffindor student and hubs is going as Harry Potter -- not a cape for him but a t-shirt and Quidditch goggles. At least he'll have an authentic accent. I gave kiddo the option of Snow White or her Jessie costume because she had mentioned wanting to wear it again... she picked Jessie. Makes my life easier! (Until she changes her mind at the last minute. )

Don't laugh too hard, okay? (That's okay... laugh because I will be):

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.

Thank you so very much for your replies, ladies. I truly and really appreciate it. Sometimes I second-guess my approach with my kiddo or how I've handled something -- so it's especially nice to have you experts to run my thoughts or mothering-unknowns by. Sending love and thanks out to all of you.

Thanks for the well wishes and kind words everyone. It looks like boss of the freakin century isn't paying me AGAIN. What the french toast? When exactly do I qualify for sick time if this doesn't do it either? I'm really getting fed up.

Dani, do you have any recourse?? This IS sick time. Can you fight it?

Miss: Love the costumes!! Simple yet it's perfect and effective ... and well suited to the somewhat H&H days days of Sept.

Okay, LOVE your idea for this year!! (we are big HP fans as you may recall). My DD went as Hermoine last Halloween (yes, I was the sucker that bought the robe at Universal last year ... got 10% off, so that's better, right?) She can't decide what to do this year ... be Katniss from the Hunger Games OR Merida from Brave ... she's leading to Brave .... she has the hair but not the right color.

And sorry, missed quoting our "miss" about the advice on being yourself ... you gave the answer I have given to my DD ... some of the things she's worn to school, won't be ME, but she is comfortable (and it's not offensive) so it's all good AND about them being their own person and comfortable with who they are.

WHAT!? Is that even legal? Sick leave is for sickness! That boss of yours is crazy and I think he's bordering on employee abuse! Is there someone higher up in HR you can take your concerns too? Because this is flat out Balogna! I feel for you Dani focus on getting well!

There is a Villains Dance Party? How did I overlook this? I am really trying to find out when/where we can meet Hook to take our picture with him.

Thanks! I have been able to find some adorable things on Etsy that were very reasonable. But, man, some people are beyond proud of their creations. I told my friend who's making my costume that she should make like 10 while she's making mine & sell them on Etsy for $100. That would be a bargain compared to the other Wendy dresses on there!

This year, I'm going as a Gryffindor student and hubs is going as Harry Potter -- not a cape for him but a t-shirt and Quidditch goggles. At least he'll have an authentic accent. I gave kiddo the option of Snow White or her Jessie costume because she had mentioned wanting to wear it again... she picked Jessie. Makes my life easier! (Until she changes her mind at the last minute. )

Don't laugh too hard, okay? (That's okay... laugh because I will be):

I love y'alls costumes! Y'all look so cute! And I love the HP theme for this year! We're big HP fans here.

That's insane. I'm sorry to hear this for you.

Dani I know labor laws can vary from state to state but I was in personnel and did payroll for years but if you have sick time coming to you that poor excuse for a "Boss" can not deny it to you, now depending on your company's policies he may be within his rights to request a Dr's note but to just not pay you is not right!

Poor Dani. Who's up for a trip to NY for a RCer 9-to-5-style Boss-Hogtie intervention? This dude seriously needs it. After we're done, we can all head to Crumbs and celebrate with a Baba Booey cupcake. (and some wine.)

She can't decide what to do this year ... be Katniss from the Hunger Games OR Merida from Brave ... she's leading to Brave .... she has the hair but not the right color.
Thanks. (Knew you'd like the HP theme! HP robes are good, whether they're 10% less or not. Did you nab a wand too?) Oh, both of those ideas are spectacular for your DD! Seriously love Katniss... and I'm sure I'd love Merida, just not seen it yet. Oops. Would you let her put that temporary colour in her hair? I was considering some 'Streekers' (from Ulta) for kiddo's Jessie 2.0 this year.

Yes, same here! Didn't know it existed until after the party. So much for reading the map and schedule. I think the proper name for it is the Villains Mix & Mingle. It's on the Castle Stage and afterward, they come down into the crowd and we MISSED -- all three of them -- it last year! Not this year though, fingers crossed.

Seriously, she should! I think I've seen the dresses you're talking about too -- after my endless 'Disney costume' searches.

Thank you a ton, Janet. Love all of the RCing mommy-wisdom y'all are willing to share.
