Good morning Between DS' paper and my trip report I never really made it back to finish catching up. Everyone else is still sleeping and hopefully will stay that way for a bit.

Miss - I know I missed this a few days back, but big to you for all you are going through with your mom. We are always here to lend you what ever support you need and give you lots of cyber HUGS!!!!! On a positive note, what is the latest planning for DH's bday trip? Are you still thinking CR garden wing?

MAGIC - oh boy, that is going to be a dangerous drink for sure, yummy, but dangerous

Candace - looks like you had a great time last night! We haven't been to Disney on Ice in over two years Did you get through much planning before you left for dinner?

Wookie - I agree, if you can do the suite and still have money to play with, then that is the way to go. I really do like the idea of the room layout and the extra space. If we go back in the fall, we may give it a try.

Jeanette - DH's car has service included too and I am always so jealous that he knows when he takes it in that he has no cost. Although he goes through tires like crazy and those make up for not have service costs How are you feeling? Getting back to your self?

Oh so since it seems like a lot of you are thinking end of October, you need to start coordinating so I can make one trip up Our AP's expire Sept 15 and we are not sure if we are renewing but it looks like I may have to make a very strong argument to do so

Hope everyone has a great day!
Melissa

The show was super fun!!! Still made me cry!

The planning we did was to actually book a YC room only for BFF w/the spring offer and cancel the package she had booked. She is afraid they won't get their income tax refund in time for their 3/4 package payoff date, so the room only is the way to go. She will likely end up buying the tickets through UT instead.

We also decided that we will try to get reservations for the dessert party because I think her DH would be much happier up above the crowd versus right in the crowd, so I have advised IPO and they will let me know when dates open up.

They told their kids, and the kids are soooooooo excited!!!! I'm excited to see Disney through them since they don't get to go as often as our kids. Even our kids are somewhat "overexposed" at this point, lol.

The RC itis is in your blood I am sure you will end up at the Poly, but is always nice to know what your options are! DH and DS did say last trip (and walking through the Poly) that they think they could handle staying at the Poly but prefer CR.

HOLY COLD!!!! I am sending you some warmth and sunshine stat!!! I meant to comment the yesterday, we stayed at AS Music a lot because it was what was available with the AP disc. We honestly don't remember the difference between Music, Sports, or Movies, LOL! I am sure the preferred room will work out great and you will have a great time! Good luck to your granddaughter! My dad is a pharmacist and finally looking to retire but he honestly loved his job for as long as I can remember.

Melissa- the jeep has a trip to Disney too, but for us that would be 2300 miles! It also had a 1600 round trip to take B back to college!
Well now I don't feel so good about my mileage We haven't done any major trips like that. Glad I found you on FB! Always nice to put a face with a name

I really like the flexibility of the RO bookings. We have done a package a few times when we have added dining, but the cancellation policy and payment in full 45 days out instead of at check in just makes it worth a second look. I have heard that UT is a good source for tickets too. Do you have the TIW card? As a Passholder you can buy one and use it for all of you, that would definitely save some money on the food too!

BB I agree on the room only. I cancelled my interline room at WL and rebooked it with the BB offer. I'm not so patiently waiting for my refund. I was thinking about doing with the YC reservation since the AP rate is about 35% off. I'm going to see how long the first refund takes. I always get nervous waithing for large amounts of money to be refunded. I already paid off my CC so I would just have to turn around and pay off the RO or leave the 4000 credit on it. Makes no since. I could shoot myself for paying off the packages early. The advantage though it would be easy to change my reservations up to the last minute.

Marie I was perusing the DL AP site. I noticed they suddenly dropped the AP discount from about 10% to 25% for the next two weeks. Hopefully that is a good sign that the "no discount idea" is not working out so well. Rack rate at Dl is somewhat reasonable if they bring back the 30% off discounts during the off season maybe you'll get your club level. I think the problem Dl has is that there are too many offsite hotels within walking distance of DL for them to keep their prices so high. I could be wrong, but that's my thinking.

PAS I like your Oct/Nov idea or did you change that already? It does take some time to save up for these trips that's for sure.

Speaking of AP's I was pricing out the Poly GV CL for 4 nights In May. 2700 bucks.I can't wrap my brain around spending that much on a room at the Poly. I'm guessing that's why the GF and Poly reviews on TA are always so bad. If I was paying that much I would expect absolute perfection, and maybe a foot rub at the end of the day. My hats off to anyone willing to pay that.

Yes, we will be using TiW.

I made an ADR cancellation today....got rid of CRT breakfast. Couldn't really justify spending $175 on breakfast, other than the fact the DD8 requested it for her birthday, but recently she's been saying that she really doesn't care if we eat there or not...she's more excited about Beast's Castle.
So, I emailed IPO to cancel our CRT ressie, so we should get the refund on that because its prepaid.
We've eaten there twice before, so I'm not sad about it....just trying to decide if I should pick up another breakfast ressie. We are not breakfast people but sometimes a hot breakfast is yummy.

we found that the Princess breakfast at Akershus was amazing...more time with the princesses and the photo at the beginning before you are seated with Belle is included with your breakfast price...we loved the food and the variety and the atmosphere was amazing...just a heads up

Unfortunately, we very much dislike Akershus.

Bad experience there...

I am thinking that we would replace it with a non character breakfast as even my kids find character meals to be of poor food quality, and chaotic, lol!

I wish akershus would go back to non-character buffet. The only time we went was before that and really enjoyed our lunch

Hi Padawans! Discount would be so great! I've narrowed it down to Embassy Suite South for Sunday, Mon, Tue (Knotts Berry Farm, and Universal those days), then we'd move over to DLH for Wed, Thur, Friday for our Disney days. Then departure would be Sat Feb 8, 2014. That's how I'd like it to go anyway, but hotel costs are up there.....even Embassy suites are $200 per night. It would be great to get CL with our DLH portion, but as of this moment, I'm not willing to pay an extra $600 for three nights!
Fingers crossed prices come down a little.....or a lot!

Melissa, hope you got Stephen's papers in order (can you come help me with my paper mess? )

I'm much better, thanks! And my mind's been drifting back to FL with those great temps and my time with you. Did you get your packing finished?? started? Just 2 more days!

Wookie, that would be fantastic!!!

The reason for Movies and French Quarter not on the list...is because these are very popular resorts and usually fill up without a discount...so they didnt do those..

We also "CHANGED" two of our dining reservations...

OY OY OY..

have a good day
Pumba, our first Disney resort was ASMu, preferred, calypso building. We really liked being so close to the food court, and we were right around the corner from the pool. It was a great location.
