Oh ok! I have read about that. I'm worried about how hard it can be to meet the villains after that. I'm going to try to get us to one of the showings of that early so we can get in line for Hook. I'm just afraid my 4 y/o son won't want to stand in line even if it is for Hook. We'll see!

They're nice costumes but there's not way I would pay that much. It's not that serious. And my friend is doing just as good on mine. And I only paid $35 for my materials!

It took me about 3 months worth of looking & researching before I was able to come up with an idea that worked for all 3 of us. I was getting to the point of telling my son he would be the only one dressing. But, my friend saved the day.

Thanks for cheering me up guys!


He said he spoke to HR and it is their final word that I can't be paid unless I use my vacation time. Out of my 9 sick days this year I have been paid for ONE. Isn't that absurd? I really need to find a new job.

The good thing about this yucky illness (seriously not being able to eat?! cruel!) is that I am home with my children

Dani, I heart, Padawans! Yes, all those wonderful reviews are making me hold tight to my ressie....I gotta try out the POLY and I hope to fall in love

I wasn't speaking of LV specifically, but rather, CL and Poly rooms in general. Don't change anything, ignore me, I'm just a Poly alarmist.

I have to admit, the change was prompted by a better discount. We prefer the BC room decor, but love the lobbies and CMs on both sides. We split our stay and added 3 nights at GF, too.
What a great split and perfect reason to switch

Very nice cha cha change!



What JC said, KOOK!!

Oh, you and JC are in cahoots, but I'm happy you both like my change to that place where I won't have to prime the pump or rub sticks together. Now that I put that in writing, it sounds kind of boring over at the YC.

I'm with you on the post Poly rehab visit

Always good to chat with all the sweet RCers. You guys are the best!
Either writing implement is perfectly acceptable, as long as you have plenty of WhiteOut, (which I've almost run out of from using so much on the calendar on my fridge).

You're the best, too!

That's too funny, I've used the line, "That's a home shirt and not a vacation shirt." It's always shirts, isn't it?

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...
Your DTD experience sounds much like our dear friend's LuvLuvLuv.

Resort days are so relaxing and it's so much fun exploring WL. Don't forget to go over to VWL and take a look at the Carolwood Pacific Room and lobby area

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
I feel so honored to have rockin' nicknames - that's so 80's.

We want JC smiling as much as possible, so I hope it worked. I love your parasol idea - perfect!!

Exclamation points!! Love them!! Well, that brings another Seinfeld to mind .... Jake Jarmel would of been wise to use a few !!! when taking messages for Elaine!! (double exclamation points!!)

After Elaine broke up he said, "I'm leaving!" He made sure to put an exclamation point at that end of that!

Dani: hand foot and mouth is not fun, my kiddos have had it twice...I am sorry! Your boss is a dink, please find another job. I am all for the trip to sort him out. Still don't see how this is legal.

Miss: I love your costumes! And the Jesse one is adorable, and looks super comfy.

Pas: It sure is a hard balance trying to give enough attention to everyone. Our DH's kind of get left out sometime, and they find such interesting ways to tell us don't they???

Heather: another lovely pic.....

Basketlacey: We loved Via Napoli....yummy!! And their Sangria isn't bad either!

On a side note, I cannot believe what happened in Colorado. So so awful. Very sad.

Have a great weekend everyone...

Kook You are correct, I had it last year, but it was at the Grand. Lily got sick with it and passed it on to me.

Jenny you're not kidding! I have it much worse this time than last time. My mouth hurts so bad and I am STARVING.

Well, this thread is moving like lightening again! We had another busy day in the World, starting with Hollywood Studios and then dinner at Biergarten...we were going to go to MK for EMH's tonight but the girls wanted to come back to WL and hit the pool! It was definitely July HOT today after such a cool start.

Well, it's official...We were discussing our April 2013 trip and where to stay (the girls would like AoA) but DH said he can't imagine staying anywhere but WL. He LOVES it, and he hasn't felt that way about anywhere we've stayed....so DD8 suggested a split stay for April (5 nights AoA, and 5 nights WL)...so we are thinking we might do that.

Oh, and we hung out at BC today...it was nice, but loud and busy...we actually preferred the WL...who knew????

Well, time for pool! Hope you all have a wonderful night!

MM see!!! I knew once you went, you'd LOVE it! Great plan for 2013...lucky you to have another trip to look forward to! glad you are having such fun

Dani: I'm I can't believe with 9 days sick leave accumulated, you can't Use it? How is that possible or even legal? Do you have a human rights complaint board in the US? That is not right, and you know what? Your boss SAYS he's talked to HR, I wouldn't trust his word as far as I could throw it! I'd contact HR or head office, or whoever was above his head just to hear it myself! There has to be someone who can fight for you and YOUR rights! Wish I lived closer so I could offer you some support, and join in on that Boss invasion! ooooo I'm mad at his treatment of you!
for you!

Oh I don't have 9 sick days, I've had to call out 9 times because of the kids being sick. I haven't been paid for any. It's unbelievable.

Kook we have to meet at SAB or something. You have to throw down some snacks from the CL... I use to say that to Disneybride (Shout out to Diana, come back Disneybride we miss you.)

I have a "situation". I'm finalizing my touring plan and I have Sanaa scheduled for Friday at 6:50 (I've heard so many good things about Sanaa). We will be at AK that morning and MK that night for EMH's. Friday is the night we want to stay at MK until they throw us out so we thought about going to AK in the morning, chilling at the resort int he afternoon and then going over to MK in time for Wishes and EMH. We wanted to have dinner right before we went to MK but that means going to AK int he morning, then back to YC, then BACK to Kidani, then MK. Is that CRAZY? My other option is to switch Sanaa to Thursday when we plan to go to DHS in the morning and just hanging out at the YC thurs evening. I have Capt's Grill scheduled that evening since we will be at the resort BUT, we can take our time getting to Kidani and getting back to YC on an evening that we don't have a park scheduled. We may miss the movie on the beach though. We were going to walk on the boardwalk thursday evening. HELP me because I'm thinking that if we stayed at Kidani, it would be easier......just saying....
My DH is still asking about Poly (can you believe it??!!) I just read that during our stay that GF is going to be HEAVY into renovations and using Poly pool so...Poly is officially off the table for me...

I'm rambling because I can't figure out my dining/resort/park plans for Thursday and Friday of my trip....

my vote (FWIW) is to do Sanaa on the HS day when you are just planning on the resort at night. Might be a little too much traveling around if you attempt it on the MK EMH night.

Although...it may be easier to just stay at Kidani like you said. Really I am not much help at all!! But

WHOOHOO for 3 weeks and 5 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with Kidani being easiest!

2 weeks and 2 days until I can forget all my troubles with a great big Lapu Lapu! I'm really worried that my boss is trying to fire me. A friend told me she overheard him whispering to the assistant manager today.

Mousemommy: That's great that y'all love WL! And the possible split stay for 2013 sounds perfect!

stepdisney: I think I'd move Sanaa to the DHS day. And a big for your trip getting closer! It'll be here before you know it!

Are you kidding me??? is this co-worker a trusted friend of yours? I have to be honest and say I don;t really know what type of work you do, but is there a way you can try to find a new job? If not, somehow you will have to rise above all this....hold your head up high.

DANI: I'd say your boss is certifiably CRAZY! I haven't met the man, but I already can't stand him!!! I agree with Jenny....I know jobs are hard to come by, you work in a bank, right? .....if there was SOME way you could transfer? Or look for another job??? I know, easier said than done, but I hate for you to be sad all the time and work in such a toxic environment! You deserve better! I want to see you happy! I hope your upcoming trip is relaxing, and magical and just the medicine the DR ordered for ALL of you to rejuvenate! You need this break.
