Back from my weekend trip to the Great Northwest aka Seattle with DD! DD is thinking of moving there when she finishes her Masters in Aug .... she's just not an LA girl .... so can mama be far behind???? We had a wonderful time with DD's friends .... can't say enough about how beautiful the city is.

I did catch up on our thread but am just too tired to multiquote ... up at 3 am to catch our flight .... DD needed to get back early to work.

Welcome back to all that were traveling, glad to hear that most of the kiddos are doing better ... I just don't know how you mamas manage with non sleeping kids .... what a strong bunch of ladies you all are!!! No individual quotes for this sleepy lady but just know I've read each and everyone of your posts ... I'm cheering for all your celebrations and sending pixie dust for those in need.

wookie His neuro had suggested it. I hemmed and hawed about for about 4 months but decided to try it. It is NOT the end of the world. I've given it to Lily a few times. There is nothing wrong with it. If you can get him to swallow pills, do that. The liquid is NASTY.

[COLOR="green"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"]That is a hard one, but it would depend on a few things...
1. Did you pick CSR because of the resort, you felt were in your budget, it was your favorite option, or was it just your favorite option. If it was just your favorite option, in what you felt your budget was, I would change. If it was your favorite option, despite the budget, I would keep the CSR.

2. If you do not have the business class, will you eat breakfast? If you do eat breakfast, will paying OOP for it be a budget buster?

3.Are you planning on going back to the resort every night to be able to eat the snacks, or are you going to be at the parks until they close? If you don't eat breakfast and the snacks everyday, I don't see it as much of a bonus.

4.I know you said that the $700 could be spending money, but is this money strictly souvenir money or would it be used for other thing? If it's 100% only souvenir money, then I would go ahead and splurge on the Deluxe.

If you answer more of those leaning toward the Deluxe, than I would change. If not, then I would keep the CSR.

When we initially booked CSR it was based on our budget at the time. We enjoyed our last stay at CSR & the fact they were offering the business class now, pretty much sealed the deal as far as the mods go. We've been spoiled with CL on our last 2 trips so we definitely will take advantage of breakfast in the lounge each day. I can also see ourselves getting drinks in the evenings before or after dinner most nights. As for the spending/savings...the savings would not be just souvenier money. The biggest hangup I think I have is that I'm not thrilled that there isn't really a place in the lobby to sit & escape the heat without having to go back to the room. DH says I'm just over thinking everything & I admit I probably am.

Glad you enjoyed your visit to my part of the world, sorta we are a 3 hr drive north of Seattle. It does rain here a lot not nearly as much sunshine as Calif. but when the sun shines, there's no place better!
