We have dinner at 1900 Park Fare on our arrival night (may be a moot point if we are already at MK before this), and planning on the pirate cruise one morning for DS at GF (figured it'd be easier/better than POR or CBR so we could shop or something while he's doing that?). Thoughts?
Koh, I would choose "A"

Note: If you are not staying at the GF you have to park in a lot far removed from the entrance. Found out this out the hard way..

And yes, I believe it is a 3 hr window for having a car at a resort (when not a guest there). If you want to go to a park afterward, perhaps park at the TTC and take the monorail to the GF.

I was going in mainly for value season and being able to afford BLT. I guess with Easter so late in 2014 the season time frames could change drastically too. Ugh.

Sorry I am sitting in the car waiting for Sarah and taking a break from Steven and all his schoolwork and needed the distraction

HUGS,

Melissa, I vote for keeping the Feb dates for now... you can always change them when you know the value season dates for 2014. Although since F&G usually begins around the same time in March (second weekend) sure Disney will be moving from value to regular for that event.

Plus you know the weather will not be to hot.

And as you all live close to Disney, perhaps plan a quick weekend trip when the attraction is open... If DH can't get away, come with the kids.

He actually wanted to send me to a cardiologist over it, but we don't have health insurance.
Wookie, definitely follow up (and it stinks that you do not have insurance. )

I think I would go with A as well. ;-) yes, we have the car if need be, but I'd rather use Disney transportation unless it's super busy and we're waiting a long time...

How are the hotel rates? I thought I saw somewhere that you have group rates or something?

This might pacify me if we don't do Disney next year as a family...? :-)

Yes, it does. If we can find someone who is willing to insure the DH (due to his height/ weight ratio) it's a crazy amount per month. I'm right on the cusp of having the same issue. Even without the DH on it, since the DH is self-employed, insurance is a lot. Luckily, I found a doctor that works with people without insurance. His doctor visits are only $35, EKG's are $10, and blood work $50.

Sorry but we aren't allowed to talk about any money/costs on the Dis .... all discussions of financial matters are done on our FB group page. If you'd like to pm me I'll be happy to talk to you about the trip. I would love to see as many of the RC ladies as possible go!!!

Well, my baseball jersey I ordered nearly 2 months ago showed up today. It'll be my costume for MNSSHP come October. The entire thing is hand made, the hand chain stitching on the embroidery is amazing.





Just need to get a pair of Ivory/Creme baseball pants, and I'll be set.
