Thanks Pat. I just got to the point last week where I just needed to know one way or another. If I didn't get the job I was ready to move on and intensify my job search. I'm glad it worked out the way it did.

Absolutely. October and F&W is just perfect for that. What I wouldn't give to go back during that type of weather.

You and me and probably everyone else. I can smell the burning embers in SE as soon as I see those pictures!

Really? I figured he was someone, I just didn't know who. Thanks for identifying him. It's always cool to watch people getting videotaped at WDW.

I just love that ride. I have always been a fan and I never tire of it. It's just so classic and it fosters that feeling of anticipation.

well, I've been reading, but haven't had a chance to comment.

YAY for your new job Mary Ellen! I'm so glad for you - I'm sure that's a huge weight lifted off your shoulders!

and DOUBLE YAY for managing a WDW trip this summer!!
I'm sure it will be a little different off site, but you're still at WDW!!

Cynthia - I hope Kendall's soccer stuff goes well! I can't imagine what that would be like - trying to figure out teams, trips, scholarships, college stuff...I guess I will find out soon enough! (well, not the team part, my kids aren't in team sports).

Love Spaceship Earth - it's just cool. Nothing else to say about it.

I'm pretty sure I tried that ravioli dish too. I am lagging in my TR - hopefully I will get to the F&W stuff soon so I can relive my yummy memories! I'll have to dig out my "passport".

I got an email from Disney VISA about the lounge but I think ( MNdisneygirl? maybe ) someone posted on the DIS FB page about the special viewing area for IllumiNAtions, but that part and the fact you had to pick up a wristband for it early did not fully register. Until it was too late of course.


Hopefully they will do it again this year.

I agree with Jill... Mary Ellen you deserve a dancing banana dude in congratulations for your new job offer!! ...And one of these special guys!

I love how you just can't stay away from Disney! It has its own magnetic force that sucks you in - yep, pretty sure it does.

Yay for Kathy still getting to see you!

Back to your TR...How do you get such clear amazing photos in SE?? You must know how to use a camera! Me not so much! I like to say that I'm from Turkey or Switzerland (Turkey & Swiss! ha!) that way my photo flies far far away.

You know way too many people NOT to have a random or planned Dismeet every day! That's so cool.

I love being an NP. I actually decided it was what I wanted to do because I loved the NP I took my kids to when they were little. I never scheduled with the pediatrician, always the NP because she was so awesome. So I know exactly what you mean.

It really was good and nicely filling. Sometimes those different foods are very tasty, but not very filling. This was perfect.

I am so happy, too! And, hopefully, Denny will want to join us for breakfast. Now that my brother's family is not going he's stuck with just me. He really enjoys CMC and is starting to get used to DIS meets. He's not 100% yet, but he's definitely getting closer. Mark and Glen did a good job of breaking him in last summer!

C ordered it first and I remember thinking "why not". It was definitely a good choice.

I love Trip Advisor, too. I won't stay anywhere without reading the TA reviews. The reviews here were mostly glowing (like 98% positive). I think the only potential drawback will be the longer drive, but we'll manage!

Spaceship Earth is one of my absolute favorites. It reminds me of when my kids were little. They absolutely loved that ride and it was a given that we had to ride on every Epcot visit.

Perfect combination, isn't it? I just can't say enough about F&W. It was such an awesome experience.

BTW - How is you family? I hope all is going well with you!

We really were not planning to go this summer. But my brother practically begged us to go with him. Originally they wanted us to book again on points and pay our annual fee, but we just didn't have the points. I suggested VRBO for them. Because they found a great 4 BR property they asked us to stay with them, so we said yes. I think once you get in your head that you are going, its hard to give that up. I hope we like the resort. I am up for one off-site adventure. One and one only!

Since we were planning on staying off-site right from the very beginning on this trip I'm fine with it. I have it in my head that its that way and I have an open mind. Plus I like to try new things, so we'll see how it goes.

You have to put your camera on the Tv setting (shutter speed) Then lower the shutter speed to let light in and you'll get some clear pictures.

Glad to hear things are beginning to fall into place and hopefully your life can become a bit less stressful now. Keeping my fingers crossed everything works out as you hope it will!

I am sure your june trip will still be fun, even with not staying on property. The fact that you can step foot inside the parks is good enough.



I think I would've chosen the Illuminations viewing spot, as well. Can't wait to see if you took some photos, because if you did, I'm sure they are great.

I'm with you. This is the first card I've had with a fee....I'm trying to justify it that the bonus points will outweigh the fee. It did the first year, with the signing bonus; we'll see going forward.

Yay MEK!! The stars aligned!! The stars aligned!!!

Congratulations on the job and the June trip! I think I am still going to miss you...by a day...but at least you get to go!

Love the SE pictures..I really did imagine myself riding it. We always make stupid faces when it asks us to take a picture. One time...I had a mohawk...

F&W from what I understand. Just flash your Disney Visa and you're in! The lounge is a nice little hang out!

I am very excited to have this June vacation to look forward to! I know you stay off-site and you make out great. I do think it will be nice to have a bigger place. I am also glad we are not staying in a strip hotel. I stayed in Kissimmee once before and I found the access easy. Of course, that was a while OK, but I think it will work out fine.

I am using it all up! I am so happy that we will be vacationing in June! I want to have some free time before I start my new job. I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks! I got my credentialing packet in yesterday so I hope everything goes through quickly! I am shocked at how much paperwork it is to apply for a job and get credentialed. I've been at my current job for 11 years and I don't remember it being anywhere this labor intensive. I am really looking forward to a June vacation.

IT really is a nice little perk. I'm glad I found out about it and I'll be flashing that Visa next year, for sure!

I need to check to see if I got my signing bonus.
I didn't upgrade to the premium. Denny doesn't even really want me to use the Disney Visa because we get better rewards with our AAA Visa and there is no annual fee. For example, its straight 2% back and then for three months this winter it was 5% back on gas. How can you pass that up? But I like using the Disney visa just so I can have a little bit on a gift card. I'm going to let it roll over and use it in October.

Signing bonus IS important!

You said that perfectly. That's exactly how I felt. I would wake up every day and feel that weight and it didn't feel good. I'm nervous about starting a new job, but I am so happy to have one.

I'm sure it will be a little different off site, but you're still at WDW!!
It will be a little different, that's for sure. But honestly, if I like the resort and can settle in then I'll be good. It's going to be a further drive, but I think we can handle that. As long as the pool area is relaxing I'll be good. You know I love my pool time!

I really hope it all works out well, too! It's a stressful time when a kid wants to play a sport at the college level.

That ravioli dish was excellent. I have no idea what I did with my passport. I am going to do better next year keeping track of it. I'm glad you said you were behind because I know I haven't read one of your updates in awhile. I want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

I don't remember getting that email, but who knows? I get so many darn emails. You know how that goes.

Too late? bummer - sorry you never got to do it.

Yup - it sure does. And when you live on the east coast its just so easy to go. 2 hour flight and there you are! I think DVC and Disney in general really targets people living in the mid atlantic region. We just flock there.

I actually put my camera in the Tv mode and adjust the shutter speed. That helps get the light in. As long as the camera is relatively still I can get a decent picture, even though I have to lighten them up a bit.

I'm not sure about every day , but I love having at least one DIS meet per trip. October was wonderful because of all the DIS meets we managed to have.
