But, when it's just my family and no friends, it's easier.

Miss E - the margaritas are cracking me up!

Hi to Kook, Melissa, pas, Janet, Jenny, Linda - who am I missing?
Welcome Back. I took couple months break also. My trip is close now. I'm back into posting and changing of course.


MM Congrats on getting the room you wanted. No more changes.I need to stop too. I also need to start thinking about that Sept trip.

Marie Good luck. I want you to make that trip to Dl. Have you priced out Club level at GCH?

No more changes!

I'll be paying off the ressie on Friday, so no more....though I was PIF before today's change so I guess that means nothing

I decided to skip Universal this trip since I upgraded to CL. I've got to save for September. I booked 3 nights at embassy suites for 126.00 a night. Free cooked to order breakfast, cocktails, free parking etc. I think we are finally going to make it out to Kennedy space center. It's a quite a bit less money than the 4 nights at Universal plus tickets I had planned. Universal will always be there. I'm kind of looking forward to something different that doesn't involve rides.
I would love to pay mine off, but I'm afraid. I have one more night to book at Disney. I don't know weather to keep trying to get Poly Cl for that night or book somewhere else like Akl. No matter what I do I'll change my mind the next day.

Hi Padawans! OMG! GCH prices are NUTS!!!! If I can get a rental Dvc villa at GCH, I don't think they do Club level -- I'd have to stock up on some snacks and pop for the room! But if I do DLH, I'll definitely pay for club level with those 2 teen boys!

morning..
Still no AP rates yet for May ...but I dont care...as long as we are going to Disney ..I am happy..
We did our air last night and got pretty good rates from Maine to Orlando..343 per person round trip..
That means we are one step closer to DISNEY...and warm weather...

Yesterday the weather here was in the 50s...made some of the snow melt and be muddy in places...tomorrow is another snow/sleet deal...YUCK...

Hope everyone has a good week

Pumba aka Marie

I made the switch and couldn't be happier!!!!
Congrats Candace that is FANTASTIC

Have a kiddo staying home with me today for whatever various reason they have off school today. She's making me "margaritas" so it's all good!
Miss M making Margaritas so cute! Glad DH is OK

so......all this DL dreaming is hinging on the fact that I get a bigger salary to afford another trip next year!!! fingers crossed

Have a marrrrvelous Monday my friends!
Hope that call comes soon Marie!!!!

Have NO clue about DL but I know offsite can be just as close to the parks from what I've read...saving LOTS of $$$$

I CAN'T WAIT for AP rates I'd love to do a May trip again this year...but we are opting for a longer vacation so this kiddos won't miss school..we are most likely driving. I've been watching airfare ...let me restate, watching airfare go up

We have 3 tickets, leftover from when I left my husband and sons home and took the girls...and I've been stressing losing that money...luckily Frontier changed the dates...qualifying me for a full refund giving me more $ into my WDW budget...who knows where I'll stay though

It's quite muddy here as well...I heard possible snow tonight but it'll probably be too warm.

May is SO close...but you know that already

My mini-margarita bartender is back in school. (She made mine in an old sippy cup from her kitchen set yesterday... complete with a Disney glowcube. )

... oh you guys. I need ideas.

Hubs 40th is this October. I know we talked about waiting to go back until January but ... ya know. I can't NOT do something nice for his birthday, right? Whatcha think? It'd have to be something short-ish. The thought of the Halloween party is nice but not ON Halloween since that'd be crazy-busy and we like the lighter crowds. Maybe I should look at alternate locations... Seattle? I keep going back to Disney in my mind, obviously.

Marie- I think I said this before, but we really enjoyed the grand Californian when we stayed there a couple of summers ago. It was connected to DCA and DTD wad out the other gate. It was beautiful and the location couldn't be beat

I just noticed that I was I unsubscribed for a day... No wonder I didn't have much action yesterday

Vegas was my first thought as well. I've been twice with the DH, the last time was over our 10th wedding anniversary. We loved it!!

If you want to keep it Disney, and don't want to do WDW, you could try DL. If you want to do something romatic, without the kids, there is a place in Mexico I want to try. It's called El Dorado Royal. It's an adults only resort and spa. They have rooms called "swim up suites" that inside them have your own jacuzzi and king size beds. Ouside you have two lounge chairs that are in water on the edge of the lazy river. Basically, what I have been told, is that you can use the lazy river to get to the main pool and then use it to get back to your room. You could always just walk, but why do that when you can float in a lazy river.

Us RC'ers have to stick together!!! If one goes down, we all go down.

But, I also agreed with you.

Mousemommy - YC CL!!! I think you are going to love it!

chimo2u - Keeping my fingers crossed for you! I hope you get good news very soon!

Missoutandabout - Miss M makes margaritas? You are one lucky momma! Of course I vote more Disney for hubby's 40th!

padawans - I am also at that place where I need to reign in my next trip so that I can afford the one after that too. I realized I will not be able to resist taking a 3rd trip on these AP's. At least I'm being honest with myself.

pumba - Yay for getting airfare booked. One step closer!

pas - Offsite? I've been pricing both Bonnet Creek and Windsor Hills for us. For the money and the space.

Our best trip yet was when we got the upgrades to the 2br suites. My poor DS6 really needs his private chill out space. Last trip he spent most of our non-sleeping room time coloring in the closet I think it may be time to trade the rest of the family's wants to give him what he needs.

I looked at some of the DVC properties too, but I don't think I have what it takes to be a renter. I swore after lucking out and getting my NYE non-refunable Dolphin ressie canceled that I wouldn't play with stuff I can't cancel anymore. Somebody please remind of that if I start going down that road!

Hi to everyone else! I hoe you are all having a great day!
