KOOK, the monorail tray won me over and Tokyo Dining it is for my next Epcot dining pick. I will order a kids meal just so I can eat out of one of these bad boys!!!! I am soooo there for our Anniversary trip... if I can wait that long.

Well then, it looks like my dining choices are set for March:
  • At Epcot: Tokyo Dining and that awesome monorail tray.

  • At MK: DH wants to do CRT this time since we've never done (and I suspect he thinks I will enjoy it).

  • As for DHS dining: I will not change from HBD since I have always wanted to eat there and never have.

  • At AK: We've bee AK heavy the past two years so we should change things up and do this one on checkout morning and go EoS at DtD for late lunch.

  • And on miniature golf night (it's become a tradition ): we'll do Cali Grill.

Now I should start thinking about dining for the rest of THIS year's WDW trips!

He's toying with my emotions, LOL! Now he is saying DVC is not the way to go. Eventually would like to get back to cruising, etc. Oh well, I will look into financing and watch for good resales at BLT and hopefully present him with an offer we can't refuse, LMAO!

Candace - int rate with DVC right now is 11.5% with 10% down, 9% with 20% down. Not bad but with home equities rates so low it doesn't make sense to pay those rates. (those are their best rates with excellent credit of course)

Ugh! Yeah, those rates are high!!! Considering I pay 1.9% on our cars and 2.75 on our mortgage.....

Wish those rates could be a little more in line with that, lol!

It's time for a ch-ch-change! Adding a few days on while I'm at it.

We are now doing Poly CL 8/7-8/12, YC CL 8/12-8/16, and POR 8/16-8/17.

That last night at POR probably won't make the cut after discounts are released after 8/16.

I've had to keep the kiddos on lockdown indoors today after soccer. That pollen is a killer. Even double dosed Zyrtec isn't cutting it! My poor babies are so miserable

Jen- Yay for your DD having a good day! Sorry I bailed on you right away last night. DD is going through the fighting bedtime routine again and I'm so over it

babyberger - Have you brought up the idea of buying enough points for just every other year? Maybe he'd bite on that?

Magic - Your plans look great!

My Mom and Step Dad just started their Disney trip today. Got a brand new room in the Somoa longhouse at the Poly, I'm insanely jealous. Wish I could be down there now, but I got to wait until the end of October.

Joining you all. I don't usually qualify as a changer. I am pretty loyal to GF and AKL. However, this loyalty conflicts with my desire to stay at every WDW resort. We stayed at the GF in the fall and decided that it is getting a little cramped for 3. DS is almost 19 and needs some more space. Two rooms at GF strains the budget beyond the comfort level. So this summer, we decided to try a villa. We started with a one bedroom at BLT and were pretty excited. Our five nights were going to be about $3200. Then, the summer 30% room only discount came out. We called to apply the discount to our reservation and found that for a BLT one bedroom, the discount was only 5%. The CM said we could save $1000 by switching to a one bedroom at BCV. That seemed like a significant savings, especially since we are doing a major renovation on our home this summer. But now I am consumed with doubt. Will we like BCV? We've never stayed at an Epcot resort before. Will we miss the monorail? Would it be smarter or cheaper to reserve two rooms at POR---another place I've never been but would like to try? DH seems pretty enthusiastic about staying at BCV. DS doesn't care. I suspect we've got a really good deal, but I want to be sure. Is this the life of a newbie changer?

Whoa!! Just rescuing us from Page 2!!!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!! Today is Greek Easter, so we've got big family celebrations going on today!!!


ToodyCat -

It certainly sounds like you are living the life of a resort changer!!!

Make a decision....read a review...change your decision...commit to another resort...a deal comes out and you switch...but, just maybe your first choice really was the best option....so you switch back, and you are DONE! (And may even pinky swear on it)...but are you done??? As a resort changer, you just never really know where you'll end up.

nice!!

Miss. I love the Lesportsac small world patterns, and I got a few in small sizes for wdw. They are nice & light. Then I got the tote for flights.
I don't carry a water bottle but do take my mug to the parks, I usually have coffee in it on the bus, then I wash it out at park, attach to the strap of the purse with a caribener and use it for ice water at the parks.

I used to use the cross body Bagalini, letter carrier but its too bulky for me.

Happy Easter MM

Beautiful Day here, Bob finally felt good enough to venture out so off to Target we went, only thing from being bed redden since last Monday his back and knee were acting up to the point he could hardly walk. Says hw will call the Dr. Tomorrow.

I decided to bite the bullet and buy our return tickets as they are at $251 down from $280 ea. Should have just bought them the first day they went on sale. Anyway right after I picked the seats I lost my connection so the purchase did not complete. Maybe an Omen not to buy now? Thing is I want The last flight and it is usually more$$$. What to do? . If it goes down I can get a credit which will be an excuse to go back to WDW

He will be on the bus starting on Wednesday. I am thinking about talking to the bus company and the school district. My mom says that if I don't she will. The bus driver asked my oldest DS either, "Why does your brother have so many evil thoughts?" or "why is he so evil?" I have to double check with Joey, but either way she shouldn't have said it to a child. Plus if she's talking about my son like that to my other son, she's doing it to other people.

I think it's always better, when possible to not be on a bunch of medicine. When it's needed, that's one thing. However, when you can get yourself off of it, that's even better.

You could ask her a question about the chocolate cup cake. Is it overly chocolatey? I love chocolate, but not if it's too much. For example, if I buy chocolate milk already mixed at the store, I have to add white milk to it, because it's too chocolatey.

DD loved her presents yesterday and the Minnie Mouse balloon. :-) She already had the Cinderella toddler doll, so we got her Snow White (her second favorite) and Belle and some doll clothes (pjs) for all 3. Needless to say, they all went night night with her :-) and I'm sure she'll be doing all of their hair when she wakes up...(Minnie mouse beauty/hair set)

Have a great Saturday! I am off to clean for the party tomorrow!!

I haven't stayed at either POR or BCV yet. We are staying at the BC this September. Are y'all planning on spending much time at the pool? If you are, I'm sure you'll love the BC's Storm Along Bay.

They simply use a different calendar. Sometimes Greek Easter is on the same day, sometimes weeks apart. Father Andrew (at the Greek Orthodox Church we attend) was explaining it a couple of weeks ago but I will fully admit to not really paying attention. I am catholic. But DH and the kids are Greek Orthodox. The Greek Orthodox Easter has to be after Passover, the 1st full moon and spring equinox according to the Julian calendar....versus the Gregorian calendar that Catholics use. Same holiday, different date.

[QUOTE=Mousemommy1;48305723][QUOTE=letthewookiewin;48305003]He will be on the bus starting on Wednesday. I am thinking about talking to the bus company and the school district. My mom says that if I don't she will. The bus driver asked my oldest DS either, "Why does your brother have so many evil thoughts?" or "why is he so evil?" I have to double check with Joey, but either way she shouldn't have said it to a child. Plus if she's talking about my son like that to my other son, she's doing it to other people.



I'm not sure where they are with the floors, but this weekend had been amazing!! The inlaws left and won't be back until some time on Monday.



Thank you. I can't wait for it. I know it will be. The days have been melting away.



I think it's always better, when possible to not be on a bunch of medicine. When it's needed, that's one thing. However, when you can get yourself off of it, that's even better.



That sounds like an amazing idea!! Can it include a version of SAB with a bar where we can get Lapu lapus and "adult" Dole Whip floats.



Send some our way as well. We are about 8 inches short of what we had this time last year and we were in a drought last year.



That it does. Thank you, but at least I do have the MNSSHP tickets on the way.



You could ask her a question about the chocolate cup cake. Is it overly chocolatey? I love chocolate, but not if it's too much. For example, if I buy chocolate milk already mixed at the store, I have to add white milk to it, because it's too chocolatey.



The pics are amazing!!



Thank you. Luckily the school is working with us. Now I just need to handle the bus driver situation.



I'm glad her party went so well.



Well maybe you can tempt him with being able to rent the point you aren't using?



I haven't stayed at either POR or BCV yet. We are staying at the BC this September. Are y'all planning on spending much time at the pool? If you are, I'm sure you'll love the BC's Storm Along Bay.



Happy Greek Easter? Just curious (because I love learning about different cultures and religions) why is there a different date?

They simply use a different calendar. Sometimes Greek Easter is on the same day, sometimes weeks apart. Father Andrew (at the Greek Orthodox Church we attend) was explaining it a couple of weeks ago but I will fully admit to not really paying attention. I am catholic. But DH and the kids are Greek Orthodox. The Greek Orthodox Easter has to be after Passover, the 1st full moon and spring equinox according to the Julian calendar....versus the Gregorian calendar that Catholics use. Same holiday, different date.
Thank you for explaining that. I had always wondered the difference and that makes sense. I grew up going to a Southern Baptist church and have always found different religions extremely interesting.
