I would hate to have missed your fine example of "good Pooh" and "bad poo"
The changes just make me giggle

After the week I have had this is a great reminder. I will need another next Friday too please.

You got it!!

Just got my 3 personal days approval today by my superintendent! (Good thing since flights are booked non-refundable...) Put that together with the 2 days off of school for deer hunting season (as big a holiday as any in this neck of the woods) and the 2 weekends as the bookends and we are in for a nice Disney stay!

That is really nice! Yeah, I was hoping mine wasn't going to deny my leave either. We also booked our non-refundable airfare mo ths ago. That would have been really ad if the time was denied.

Hope your weekend goes better than your week!

I joined DIS in 2010, even though we'd been going every year for a while at that time. There is always something new to learn. And it's just so nice to talk to people who love Disney the way I do. I've met a lot of super nice people on the boards. And especially on this thread!

Really? Kids get 2 days off school for hunting? I've never heard of that. Sure helps when you're planning a trip to Disney! So glad you got those extra days you requested. You really have to step out in faith when you buy those non refundable airline tickets, right? What a load off your mind the approval must have been! Enjoy!

Time is FLYING away from us! I cannot believe I'm at 79 days now. And to think I started planning slightly more than 500 days out. I already know what I need to pack, but of course it's too early to start packing! When do you guys start to pack? I mean the serious packing? For those who are flying into MCO, how many pieces of luggage do you take with you?

We're at 54 days today! I've been talking about our upcoming trips so much in the carpool that one of my friends has had to book a December trip-- and her family just went in June. She called me at lunch yesterday and asked me to talk her off the ledge. She had been on the WDW site and found a good deal for early December and wanted me to talk her out of it. I told her I wouldn't because it WAS a really good deal!
I feel like I've performed a public service!

I know what you mean!! I've made a list of all the things I will need. Info about reservations and insurance, etc. The lists gets longer and longer!

We're all a bunch of enablers!! She'll thank you for it later.

I usually don't start packing until a few days before. But then, I usually go in September and am wearing my shorts etc. right up until my trip. Since I won't still be wearing those summer clothes, I'll probably just pack them instead of putting them away for the season. It's just DH and I so we usually just have one VERY LARGE suitcase. But we're flying Southwest for the first time and don't have to pay for bags, so we'll probably each take one. I know there are some on here who have already started packing...you know who you are ...so whatever works for you, just go ahead and do it. No judging here!

Universal Studios question

For those of you taking a side trip to Universal - what have you found out about tickets? Cheapest sites? Is there something similar to a "fast pass" approach for Harry Potter? Someone had told me you could pay extra for front of the line access or something like that. Wondering if there was any group info people could share. Thanks!

Hi there. We're checking into a Universal hotel after we check out of Disney. That will take care of our Universal Express passes. However, you can indeed purchase Universal Express. You can buy it at Universal itself or online. I'm not sure how much it costs but it will take one big worry away. We opted to stay onsite simply because of this perk. There are a few rides and attractions that are not covered with the Universal Express. I believe The Forbidden Journey at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is one of them. Everyone will just have to wait in line for that. But those staying onsite will be able to enter The Wizarding World of Harry Potter an hour before the rest.

The express pass at US is expensive. We went last August and the wait in the line was as good as the ride. Don't miss going through the line at least once! I hate parks that let you buy passes like that. I like Disney's that let anyone no matter rich or poor, same chance. We live 40 min for Cedar Point in Ohio and they just started that. I feel so sorry for families that save up and then get there and can't afford express passes.
