Lots of rain here in MD. Stay safe everyone in Sandy's path. Don't really know if we will be leaving in four days now. Will have to see how Sandy goes.

Staying dry and dreaming of Disney!

So far we've got lots of rain, but not the crazy sheets of water that came with Irene. Apparently the worst is yet to come.....but we're doing okay so far. Hope everyone dealing with Sandy stays safe and dry!!


Now that I have the ADRs in place (mostly - there will be tweaking, I'm sure).... I started checking Disney dining prices. ouch!!!

We have the DDP (family of 3, 2 adults and one 6year old fairly adventurous eater) and we're considering upgrading to the DxDP.

We actually aren't big foodies (no Victoria & Albert's for us!) but there are a few places we really want to go. Keeping our crew happy definitely involves regular food consumption, and with a week of WDW park hopping....

We have CRT and the HoopDeDoo revue already booked, CM, Crystal Palace, Akershus, 'Ohana....plus some other TS meals booked with ADRs - seems the cost of the extra TS meals would cover the difference to upgrade, given the hike in Disney restaurant prices.

Advice and suggestions welcome.... !

Thinking of all of you in Sandy's path! Prayers being said for safety.

Last night we finished up our Mickey head ornaments (styrofoam is messy!) and I am in the process of ordering some custom family shirts for MVMCP. I still have not purchased that poncho I need. I have started the kids on probiotics and extra Vit D to try and strengthen their immune systems a bit. The week before our trip I will ramp up the Vit C. I am really happy with our ADRs, but am stalking for an am Akershus or pm Ohana for our last day.

Stay safe and dry everyone!

Just lost power here in south jersey, lots of rain and wind all day. Hoping it comes back on soon. We have never lost power in the 4 years we have lived here. So my 2 year old is having a good time making shadow puppets on the wall, while my 1 year old will not give back the flashlight and batteries are dying! The one thing I forgot to purchase Saturday. Thankfully we have candles and high places to put them. Hopefully my kids will eat sandwiches for a few days. We may try and head to my inlaws tomorrow if it is safe enough. Stay safe everyone!

Thinking about everyone who is being effected by Sandy. It has been raining here in Ohio for two days and the winds have been terrible. I can't imagine what you folks on the east coast are experiencing! My DD lost power around 6:30 tonight. Our other DD, who lives about 8 minutes away still has power. She's the one with the new baby, so I hope they keep their power!! I'm praying for safety for everyone. And, no, we don't want the storm to bypass us and hit our friends in Canada!!! Better just to blow out to sea and die down!

Since you've already got quite a few things booked, I say go for the deluxe! DH and I could never eat that much food in a day, but lots of folks love it and it is a great way to experience the signature places. Good luck!

Our niece's husband works for the power company and he has been sent to New Jersey to help out. He goes wherever there are storms and usually works around the clock and can be gone for as long as a month. I think he coordinates the workers, but not sure. Hope you get your power back soon!

My heart goes out to all who are being affected right now. We are on the west coast and watching the news and updates roll in and keep praying for safety for everyone. Hope you stay safe, dry, and damage free! And here's some pixie dust for all your travel plans too!

How did everyone make out with Sandy? We are in Braddock Heights, MD, and basically we got wind, rain, some stuff knocked over, but we still have power and I do not think we lost it at any time throughout the night. Right now we are watching reports of the area, and my thoughts go out to everyone who got hit worse than us.

I am hoping the airlines are back to normal by next week when we fly out (Weds the 7th). They should be, I think, since the rule of thumb is for every day there is a problem, it takes 36 hours to correct, so 2 days of problems (Mon-Tues) should even out by this weekend; but I hope everyone who had flights out of the area to WDW this week is doing all right.

We fly out of Philly at 6:50am on Monday morning... I sure hope everything it back to normal by then...

I wish we had refundable tickets, we would cancel our flight and just drive -- the 17-ish hours are worth it, if I know I will get there on time.

Now we wait....

We were lucky that aside from a little water in our basement (it's unfinished) nothing really happened to our house, and we never lost power... I can't say the same for the folks who live down the shore!
