Wait, what? JB=Jet Blue right? That is who I have. I assumed when I booked non-refundable flights that was it. If the price drops on the same flight I'm on I can request a future credit? How?

Like the other poster, I never go anywhere either.

I actually am still looking for your Ohana on 11/15. Let me know if you want me to look for anything else.

And believe me I'm not bored; this just means maybe some time can be devoted to things that needed to be done, like laundry and cleaning my house!
Congrats in the extra day. I had Ohana at 9:15 on 11/15 but my hubby didn't want to eat that late so I cancelled it weeks ago. Of course we would have been in a great place for the 9:30 Holiday Wishes fireworks. We now have whispering Canyon at 6:50 for that evening then we are going to tour the monorail resorts so we can figure out where we want to stay next time! Hopefully we won't have to wait another 3 years.

I always feel bad for the people I see out walking their dogs when it is in the 90's or below freezing. I'm too lazy for a pet, I have enough problems keeping my kids watered and fed.

A HUGE storm just passed by here so the temps just dropped considerably. I still have the air on though because the humidity is still up.

Well, the goal here is to get the kids to exercise the dogs and kill two birds with one stone. : ) we do have Abigail yard to run in though so I guess that helps.
Speaking of, I guess I'd better line up the kennel for our trip. Thanks for the reminder. : )
guess the storm headed your way after passing by us. It has been calm ever since. We still have our air in too..,I hate humidity!

It came and went here. Maybe 15 minutes at the most. The sky turned dark gray and got so windy. Hopefully that's it for today!

It wouldn't be a cost-effective solution if she was paying but since they're free it's not a bad idea. The other two hoppers would still be expensive though.
Yeah, I see. Thanks!

Well, we're not doing ADRs this short trip but I booked the Barber Shop for DS11. I think he'll get a kick out of it and I realized that its a dollar cheaper than getting his hair cut at the mall. Go figure.

Now I have something booked. It feels like a real trip. :-)

On an unrelated note - we seem to be having a major thunderstorm event her in MD. :-(

I think most people on the east coast of US and Eastern Ontario are getting a storm of some sort

Just heard more thunder....

Aaaw thanks! The main ADR I am looking for right now is Akershus dinner for the 16th or 21st. I had scheduled lunch, but after looking at reviews, it seems like most of the negative ones are regarding lunch. I guess breakfast would work as well, but I kinda wanted to try some foods I wouldn't normally try. : ) Let me know if there is anything I can look for for you too!
What is everyone else's thoughts on Akershus lunch vs dinner?
I'll keep an eye out for you. We have only ever done Akershus breakfast and we love the cheesy potatoes; we aren't adventurous eaters so lunch and dinner there are out. Did you get your Ohana?

I hate the heat and the kicker is that I didn't even really want a dog, mainly because I am lazy and didn't want to walk it. Just like you, it's a struggle for me to keep up with the DH, kids, and the house, and I really didn't want another responsibility. But I really do love her(see my avatar) and honestly she is the best dog and just as lazy as me! She loves her walks but if we didn't take her, she is content to sleep all day. And she doesn't like the heat either; whenever we put her out in the yard she just sits by the door waiting to come back in to the A/C.

TG the in-laws agreed to watch the pup so no hefty kennel fees. And no signs of a storm here outside of Philadelphia. We need something to break this humidity.

So, wild question I'd prefer not to ask on a rabid MDE thread ;-): we are staying off site, but I do have an ADR on MDE, is there anything particularly good or bad about linking my tickets, which are the plastic card type, onto MDE as well? All opinions welcome. :-)

I heard thunder between 1-2 but never seen the rain. hmmm
It's pretty humid so my AC and fans are cranking.

I'm ready for Fall weather! Just bought a new coat. :-) It will make a nice jacket to wear as we are going to the airport so that I'll have something to cut the chill if the forbidden cooler weather finds us at the World. But I'm really banking on the even lighter jacket.

I've always loved seeing your avatar of your dog! Of course I work at a veterinary hospital and volunteered with a husky rescue for a while, so I guess I'd like any dog. : ) That's awesome you have a dog-sitter...I feel so bad!
Hmmm. It's funny, because I called my husband when the rain downpoured, worried about him as he had just left, literally 3-5 minutes prior, on his motorcycle! The storm did not catch him either so it must have been pretty patchy on our side of Philly as well.
I did get an 'Ohana, for a different day, but not the 15th yet. : ( I'm still trying. I'm hoping at the 45 day mark, when people have their final payment due, some will open up. Not that I would wish that others vacations won't happen, but I'm sure there will be some anyway.
That's good to know about the cheesy potatoes at Akershus...I'll console myself with them if we don't get a dinner reservation, and can get a breakfast one instead! At least they both seem to be good options!
