I am sooooo stinkin nervous

We dont leave for 2 months...but we only just decided to do this trip a week ago.

Last time we booked almost a year 1/2 away...

Now I feel like I have a million things to do...but yet still don't.
ADR's for the most part are done,maybe just one more (famous last words right) but so far are not too shabby

Room/ tickets - done and paid for
Flights done


I think I'm just so stinkin excited that DH said yes...

Sorry just babbling

Morning all

good to see im not the only one freaking out..fortunately its not over the money portion, i have been penny pinching for a whole year and seeing our balance after we paid off the trip really made me happy. What i am freaking out about is that the school told me today if she misses more than 5 days we could be subjest to a penalty!!!! Has anyone had this issue?

we HAVE to get ours approved, After 5 days, they need a dr note and because my kids will be missing 6 days (5 for the trip) and one because we get back at 10pm sunday night THEN still need to drive home I am not sure if the kids will be able to go the next day!.... poor DH HAS to get up and go to work the next day bad planning on my part. good news is since I need the truck, I can unload it in the morning

Goood morning! 60 days til Disney!!

Rooms & dining are paid off
Purchasing MVMCP tix next week and i'll have our park ticket money next week, too
Still need to purchase Photopass+ and gather spending money, then i think we'll be set

I feel like i should be doing something Disney planning related, but can't think of anything that needs to be done at this time. Luckily, i've got a birthday party, Halloween party & Thanksgiving Dinner, among other things, to organize while i wait to finish packing.

I was freaking out yesterday kind of over the same reasons but DH kept assuring me that all will be ok.

Tell me about it! Both younger DS and I had a couple issues the past few months and the medical bills are ridiculous. I got an $800 bill for just one test at the hospital.

For those concerned about spending money, see if there is somewhere else you can tighten your belt. I am taking $ out of our regular budget in several areas and we're just getting by on less between now and our trip. From here on out, I'm staying clear of the Disney store and other online stores so I don't impulse spend. I am pretty disciplined, but occasionally I have been known to splurge.

Have a great weekend everyone!!
Very good advice!!

Mine are only missing 3 days, so i told the K teacher that i know school will contact me, and she said she'll give them a heads up and they may not contact me.
The few high school teachers i was able to talk to thus far about my oldest were fine with it, but the high school doesn't contact us about absences as "fiercely" as elementary.

Our district policy is after 8 days unexcused, the truancy officer gets involved. Excused is with doctor's note or principal's permission. Parent notes (Johnny stayed home because he had a bad cold...) are not excused, but they are required when they return to school if you don't have a doctor's note or advance permission. I sent in DS's request for an excused absence for the 5 days he will miss the other day, asking that they be excused because of the educational value of the trip. They approved it within 48 hours! What a relief, since he'd have been more than halfway to his 8 days if they hadn't. He only missed two days last year, but he missed 8 the prior year.

On the other side of the scale: My friend's daughter recently moved here from her mother's house in another district. She'd missed 46 days of school last year! But this only resulted in calls informing the mother of the absence, which she was somehow OK with, chalking it up to headaches (probably not the case most of the time), and no notes needed. It seems this district allows the kids to substitute community service work for time absent from school, up to 60 days, so all she had to do was spend this summer working with a church mission group and interning for my office, and she's free and clear, thanks to good test scores. I am still astonished by this. But it goes to show how much these policies vary.

Please, do not feel that I am 'rubbing it in' and if you do, I apologize in advance! But after reading of many peoples nervousness about funds, on this and other threads, I feel much better than I had previously! And want to share my good feeling! DH is disabled and we live on a very tight yearly budget of just my income so I am a huge worrier when it comes to money. We have been saving or this trip since our last one 3 years ago, so I'm feeling really good about where I am at.

I paid off Disney 6 weeks go, bought plane tickets 8 week ago, pre-purchased photopass +, rental car reserved, Harmony Barber Shop reservations made, all ADR's made (using DDP), new suitcases and clothes for everyone AND have just over $2,000 saved for spending money (which I WAS worried about not having enough)!!

I am READY for 11/1! Yay!!!

Sounds like you might just have to accept the penalty, if the school chooses to enforce it. What is the penalty?

Here, if a high schooler misses too much school (8 days in one sememster, I think), they have to attend "Attendance Recovery" classes on Saturdays or before or after school to make up lost work. Also, if they miss more than 13 days in a semester, they are ineligible for participating in sports the following semester.

Elementary and middle school are not as strict- there is a rule that if a student misses more than a certain # of days in a year (20, I think??), they might not be promoted (I have never heard of any child actually not getting promoted bacause of this rule, though).
