Ginny: What happened?! Was everything okay in the end?

Linda: I love that story. It gives us hope.

Jen: Awwww. That is so sweet. Make sure you get lots of pics when they open them up on Christmas. You too, Candace! Very exciting. Wish my kiddo was into dolls. Will they be opening them last?

Melissa: Love LOVE the pics!

Candace: I'm doin' a Rah Rah cheer for her. She'll kick some butt in that game... Careful in the snow!

We're staying at the Yacht Club in Jan... a brief transgression from our BC obsession. Doesn't count against us since it's practically the same place, right?! (We were originally staying at AoA when it was supposed to be a family get-together but once the rest of them wimped out, we swapped to YC to be where we wanted. Haven't told any of them that we're still going. I figure since none of them are coming now, they don't need to know. Bad, I know.)

I_Heart: Soooooo? Any decisions?

Pas: Ooooooh, what a conundrum. You know which I would pick. Your kiddos are definitely rockin' elementary school.

Wow, I guess everyone is having a busy Saturday. Spent the better part of the day at Epcot, then back to CR to rest a bit and have some dinner and watch the castle light up from the lounge. Now we are back on the monorail heading into MK for a few rides.

Oh and I guess it was decided today the we are definitely staying at CR in Feb, kids LOVE it!!!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!

Sounds fabulous! How is everyone liking CL?

I've been a busy little bee today taking a page out of Miss's book and buying out the Target dollar section. Fun day, but yours sounds just a tad better!

Refunds - CRO vs WDTC

I figured y'all would definitely be in the "know" on this question:

Do refunds from CRO seem to take a bit longer than from WDTC? Yes, we're making changes AGAIN and I cancelled our BWI for February (room only). The refund hasn't posted in the same timeframe the deposit for a package usually does - so I thought perhaps it takes a little longer for RO refunds.

Thoughts???

My RO refunds generally take 3-5 days but I have been told they can take longer. How long ago did you cancel?

Oh no, do you need a shock collar too??? Stay away from the dollar section, LOL!!!!We are totally enjoying the CL!! Bit with the tower club being shut down after the first if the year, atrium wis very hard to come by. We were lucky to even get a room during our Feb time frame, it was near impossible to find dates with rooms in the tower. Glad I booked it when I did!

------

We are back in the room, kids are crashing hard. So glad I cancelled the dessert party, that would have been a nightmare. Time to make a drink and get some balcony time and maybe watch Illuminations if we are lucky (we have a clear view of Epcot).

I'll try to get all my pics over to Flickr so I can post them.

Hi all. We just returned from a great stay at the Grand California. Its very similar to Wilderness lodge, but not as nice, and at at GF price. We got upgraded to a theme park view. If I could have jumped off my balcony I would have been at the entrance to Soaring. The location makes it worth the price.

Disneyland is just so much better than the magic kingdom at WDW. Space mt(100 times better) Pirates(100 times better), Splash(a few more drops), Thunder mt(actually goes fast at Dl), Its a small world(no comparison), haunted house were all better. The monorails were all new. I love the way they redid the haunted house for Christmas. The Christmas decorations were great, and I didn't have to pay extra to see the parade. Indian Jones was closed.

California adventure may be my new favorite Disney park. I loved Carsland. Toy story has no fp so there was never more than 25 minute wait. They don't enforce the fp rule in Cali so that made it great to go back at night.

DDD was fun. No need for ADR's. It reminded me a little of city walk at Universal.

I still prefer Florida for a vacation, but I think both parks in California are better than anything in in Florida except Epcot.

It was a totally different type vacation then our trips to Florida. In Florida we spend most of our time at the resort. At Dl we spent a lot of time in the parks. It was hard not too because of the short walk. 10 minutes from hotel room to toy story.

I'm glad we did it. Now I have to rethink all my vacation plans for next year. I would love to squeeze in another trip to Dl.
