I'm back home! After two weeks of being in Virginia helping my DD move and bring Baby Caroline home, I'm back and ready to rejoin my November family. I'll go back and read everything I've missed, but just wanted to say a quick hello.

Oh, and to say our trip is paid off as of yesterday!

And one more thing:
We're all going to Disney World!!!!

Will save have a few $$$ anyway, every little bit helps. We requested Oak manor and to be near elevator. thanks hope this helps.

Phew! took me a long time to read all the posts, but I loved it. I'm taking it easy today before diving into things that need done tomorrow. DH had the house a clean for me, so that's something I won't have to tackle.

It's so nice to be missed...thanks, guys!

So glad to be reading about everyone's Mickey Mail arriving. That is so exciting!

I know this was posted a while back, but did your DH lose his job after all? I hope not! It does seem as though when it rains, it pours at times. Hope things are better. I see in your later posts, you're still really excited about your trip, so looks like you have a great attitude. Good for you!

I'm not too worried about it though but I just have to watch what I eat during our trip in Nov.
Good luck on your post Disney trip surgery! Hope you heal quickly and enjoy your next trip too!

We are down to 39 days! I am so excited. I can't wait till we all arrive and I can spill our 1st secret with the girls that we are in one of the Royal Princess Rooms!! They are going to be so excited!! When they enter will be surprises for them both from Disney florist for Sarah's graduation and Rachel's sweet 16.

Then a day or so later come the next surprise, a family carraige ride around POR. Never done this and thought it would be a nice treat for them and us.

My daughter is like jumping out of her skin. I talked to her last night- she lives in Pensacola as she goes to school there and will be driving down with her dad as I didn't want her to make that 7+ hour drive by herself. She is so thrilled to be going. For us it has been since 2004 since our last trip to Disney way toooo long!! So many changes and we are set to do some real cool things too.

Come on November!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Did you decide how you're going to get them from FQ to Riverside yet? It won't be long now.

Congrats on paying off your trip! I like to give rainbows for the occasion, so here are yours:

Going when the holiday decorations are up is a wonderful time to go! We saw them in 2010 for the first time and it does not disappoint! If you have time to go to some of the resorts, they are awesome as well. Grand Floridian and Wilderness Lodge come to mind as outstanding. What fun to be surprising your kids!

QUOTE=kaileighbug;46366372]Changes.....

Delta canceled our outgoing flight and put us on a flight 2 hours later and our seats were split up.

I called them because of the seat thing and happen to ask if they had an earlier flight they could put us on. I was able to get us on a flight 2 hours earlier than the one I booked with no charge....

So now instead of getting to Orlando around 3 we will get there a little after noon. I can't wait now. Things are starting to fall into place. Hubby just earned 5 more days of vacation and now it looks like he can take the 21st off with me to get everything done. Now we can pick up our daughter at school and go to the chiropractor and head straight to the airport to stay the night.[/QUOTE]

Whew! I thought it was going to end badly. So glad you got that earlier flight!

I've lost a lot of weight this year, so I need to go shopping for clothes to wear at WDW. I have one pair of jeans that physcially don't fall off me, but they are still too big. I want to lose 10 more pounds so I'm holding off on shopping until the last possible minute.
Congrats on the weight loss! Good reason to go shopping!

We do La Nuba every other year and did it in 2011, but at those prices, I may be tempted! DH and I love that show! Thanks for the tip.

That being said, there are situations where credit cards can be used responsibly and perks can be awarded. The Disney card is one of those. We use ours for our monthly bills that are drafted each month. We pay them as they come in and earn the Disney Dollars as a result. We'll have earned over $300 in Disney Dollars by the time the trip starts. We've used part of that already to purchase our PP+, so again, it's like getting it for free. We also get 10% off of purchases of $50 or more at the Disney Store, parks and disneystore.com. It's a small savings of course, but it will be handy on this trip. It also gets us into the M&G at Epcot for cardmembers. All in all a great card to have for Disney fans.
DH and I feel the same about credit cards, but, for all the reasons you listed, keep our Disney Card. If you are disciplined to pay it off, it can really work in your favor.

There's nothing available that looks great to me right now.

What are the chances of getting a good ressie (I'd LOVE Ohana) while we are there? Do I just keep checking online or call the restaurant directly the day of?
Yes, keep checking, both online and calling Disney Dining. For that large of a party, you'll be extremely lucky to find anything. Don't let your Coral Reef ressie go until you get something else. Besides, Coral Reef and Cape May are totally different experiences. I think your party would be please with both.

First time visits are always so fun! I hope you ordered your personalized maps of the parks. If not, make sure you take a book out of the library or buy a copy of the Unofficial Guide so you can look at the maps and familiarize yourself with the layout of each park. That will help guide you and cut down on the amount of time spent figuring out where the attractions you want to ride are located. Failing any of that, get the park guides at the front desk when you check in and take them with you to the bus stop and go over them while waiting. I hope you have the most magical trip ever!

POR does have laundry facilities. I think in each building. I've never used them, so can't tell you how much it costs, but it probably won't break the bank. Definitely bring your own detergent and dryer sheets!

Yes I think so, when my DD and DH pull up at the FQ, I will say to him.....Ummmm i think we're in the wrong place, then DH will say, "you know I think you're right" we need to get back in the car for just a few more minutes. I WILL have Rachel with me but I am hoping to distract her long enough by asking her to go to gift shop and walk around while I quickly go over to Riverside and check in then buzz back- then when rest of family get there head over there asking them to cover their eyes- which I know won't work but I can at least try and then get them to the door (which will be decorated by Disney Florist as well as room) and when they open will see that they are in Royal princess room all decked out- I can't wait!! I just hope it goes off ok

So I found a Biergarten ADR on teh day we wanted to drop Coral Reef. It looks like it will be fun for everyone, and I've read reviews on theDis and people seem to like it!

I will keep checking to see if something pops up somewhere else, but if not I think we'll all be OK with Biergarten.
