Awww, thanks!

I really hope DH can pull that one off with bonus $$ as all our "normal" trip budget for then will be eaten up by the E's school band trip to Ireland, assuming they are both still in band (it does seem unlikely they will drop out at this point).

I suppose the good news is that it does give my points a year to recover

Recovering a negative points balance is good news! This last trip put me into this December's points. I need more points and I need them at the GCV.

I have a question for you. Is Fantasmic the same at WDW as it is at DLR?

It's not the same. It has the same concept but Disneyland's is much better IMHO. If memory serves, we saw it only once in 2007, WDW's has a huge Pocahontas scene which isn't my favorite. The venue is bigger though and much more organized. If I loved it we would have done it again but we haven't. WDW's was a do-only-once for me.

Oh okay. I have a friend coming from WDW and she said she didn't think she needed to see it. I told her that I thought it was different. Thank you.

Most WDW people are used to being catered to and having a reserved seat. Staking a place and guarding it is more of a California thing. East Coast people don't seem to stalk spots like we do. That being said, most I've heard don't appreciate how DL's F! Comes from a place that all day was park and thorougfare and magically transforms into a stadium temporarily and then right back into the park.

Girl, why are you still awake? How's Kidani?

I prefer Disneyland's F! over WDW's, asphalt seating and all.

She's needs to see it. It's so much better.

I totally agree! Kidani is awesome! But today we switch. I'm looking forward to a monorail resort. We went to DTD and had a long ride home, takes a while for me to unwind when I'm that tired. I'm slept and ready to go. Neat sunrise, must take pictures!

Have a good move to BLT. Glad you slept. It always takes me a few days to unwind as far as sleeping goes but I'm a poor sleeper in general. I envy those folks you get a solid 8 hours.
