Good Monday Morning everyone! I hope everyone had a nice weekend and Happy Easter to those that celebrated. We had a quiet weekend which was nice. I cleaned for the better part of yesterday, I HATE to clean, but for some reason my house does not clean itself My kiddos have one more day of spring break then finally back to school tomorrow.

Jen - I re-read my reply to you last night, WOW lots of auto correct words, LOL! I definitely did not mean CL folks As a wonderful enabler, I think you should pull the trigger and book for you and DH Especially if your mom is willing to watch the girls!!!

LuLu's Mom - have a wonderful trip!!!

Janet - sounds like you and Sam had a great time!!!!

SueM - oh yeah, I forgot that I did send a quick email to the CR IPO noting our room requests as well.

Koh1977 - CR, CR, CR, CR

MAGIC - I could go for a chocolate bunny right about now

Wookie - cant wait to hear about your trip

Jeanette - I am so happy to hear you finally got some sleep, I am sure you need a lot more to even come close to catching up, but 9 hours is a good start! Sorry you had such a rough couple of nights in the ER I hope everyone enjoyed the Easter picnic yesterday!


Hi KOOK, Dani, Candace, Miss, Lacey, Ginny, Linda, Shelia and every one else


Melissa

We have stayed at Poly twice, Contemporary once, Animal Kingdom (when we could fit our youngest in a pack n play) once and Old Key West once...would prefer to try something new..

Any RC suggestions out there?? If this was our last trip to DW, which resort would you suggest??
Welcome!!!! It sounds like you definitely fit right in

If you are looking for something new and a room for 5, I would say BC or YC for sure!!! You can request a room with a day bed and the rooms are decent size. We loved staying at YC and being able to walk to Epcot and take a quick boat ride to DHS. Stormalong Bay is also amazing and a must do at least once!

We love CR for the convenience of everything being under one roof, but LOVE the atmosphere at YC

to the RC Thread

I think one of the Epcot resorts would be the better option given your family size. You don't say when you are going but the Epcot resorts tend to be discounted 30% during the Disney Promos so they can be a really good deal. I am partial to BWI myself

JanetB: Woohoo glad you guys had fun at the Taylor concert. I'll bet Sam was over the moon.Can you believe I've never watched Cake Boss, I've never heard Taylor sing, and I am totally clueless of who the Ed dude at the concert is????? Youth marches on!!! Ok, going back under my rock (well, my sofa) now...

Imhall: We like YC for the balconies, but I'd say pick BC with kids just because the shop with quick serve is closer at BC. Definitely pick a Epcot Resort. Now if you say it was your laaaaaast, trip... I'd say Boardwalk Inn.

Lulu'sMom: You're going to Disney World!!!! Have fun!!!!

sjs314: Well, ya know... It's Hip to be Square!!!!! That was a little Huey humor there.

pas130: Packed? Pas-mobile ready?

Babyberger - hahaha re: CR. Any opinions on Garden Wing vs Tower? Garden View room is slightly cheaper than the Poly, a deluxe garden view is about the same price, and the BLV room in the main tower is slightly more...

lmhall2000 - welcome!! I loved the Poly and am thinking about trying the CR this time around, but if you're looking for something new, I did really like the feel of BC (which we stayed at last year). And if your kids are older, being close to Hollywood Studios might be nice. I don't know that it's much more convenient to get to Epcot from BC, YC, and BWI than the monorail resorts (poly was nice being close to the TTC), but if you go during Food and Wine, it would be great since you're right there at the World Showcase. Like I said, I LOVED the feel of the resort and the view of the lake when you come out the back of the place, but I thought the Poly was so much more convenient to get around. Your kids would probably love SAB though at BC/YC!! :-) I wish we would've had more time to play at the resort last year for sure!

*waving to everyone else* Hope you had a great Easter if that's your thing. Otherwise, hope you had a great weekend regardless! :-) Today's my last day off from work. Then back to the grind tomorrow. BUT discounts released to the GP tomorrow!! Woohoo! I don't have to second guess my Disney math anymore! And that should mean I can get some ADRs set by the end of this week! (We have yet to officially book anything and put a deposit down so I hadn't done any ADRs yet, but I told DH we need to get moving on it!

Also still trying to figure out the whole not telling my parents thing...DH doesn't want them to invite themselves along, which I understand, but I don't think they'd go in August anyway even if they'll be retired at that point. FL summers are too hot for them. But DH thinks we shouldn't tell them at all until we're there pretty much. Tell them he surprised us with the trip and we had no clue. But we're driving, and I would know where we were going. I hate lying to them. Besides that, is it that awful even if they do decide to go? They wouldn't need to be with us the entire time...one meal or so wouldn't be the end of the world would it? Aarghh...idk...

Hi Ladies! Hope all of you who celebrate had a very Happy Easter! Ours was nice, but Martina got strep throat, so it was different. It was nice just being our family of 4 for a change though! She is feeling better today, and has a sprong in her step again!

We booked a trip to Disneyland!!! We are crazy, and will be there over 4th of July weekend, but that was the time that worked for us, as my parents will be taking the kids for a couple of weeks, so we will be meeting them with the kids in LAX on July 4. Normally, I'd never go over a holiday, but since it will just be Brian and I, so we can go at a slower pace and be fine. I'm hoping some RCing will occour...it has been my dream to stay at the Disneyland Hotel, but it was over double the offsite places. As of now, we are at Anabella Hotel....If there is an opening on points at Grand Californian or a discount at Disneyland Hotel, we would switch, but being the Holiday weekend, we wanted to get something booked so we aren't sleeping in cardboard boxes somewhere. I am so excited to see Disneyland...I was there once for a day back in 2003, but I hadn't been "bitten by the bug" yet, and was pregnant with Martina at that point. I'm excited to go back now that I understand the history and won't be so exhausted (and can ride more). Now to come up with a game plan. Our last few WDW trips have been pretty "go with the flow", but I want to try and focus on the things that aren't at WDW or are a lot different in Disneyland this time.

Nurses are so under-appreciated. I'm sorry you have to deal with that junk. (When I was in the ER, I made sure to use my manners -- well, as always -- and joke as much as I normally do since I'm sure you guys appreciate an "easy patient" now and again.)

How was the cookout? I love that idea.

Also adding these:

And for our Lulu'sMom and Mousemommy, too.

While the DSs are taking showers, I'm downloading the pics from our trip. I didn't take any pics of the German food b/c it was not a good experience. Tomorrow, I'll let ya know how the trip went.
Welcome home! Yikes about the German place.

Sam was in heaven!!

Before the concert, we were to Carlos Bakery, home of the cake boss. It was mobbed... fortunately we pre-ordered, so it was easy. Otherwise the wait had to be about 1 1/2.

Hi to Everyone else! Have to get moving for work! Be back on line later!!
Yay, glad you guys had a fabulous time! Please, do tell, what delicacies did you get from the bakery?!

So I have been poking around online and can get a good rate for flying down on Aug 29....not so great for returning, but I do have a credit with AirTran. Thinking I would book Room only at Pop and maybe apply AP discount if it comes out. DH is acting clueless, asking me where we would go.... really?

Anyhow....I feel an impulsive move coming on. I may just pull the trigger on this. I know this is what I do....I could talk about this kind of trip forever but never do it. This time I might actually take action! Phew....just had to get it all out. Once again I am making my own head spin.
Oooooooooooooooooh! I love the sound of this impulse coming on!

Hello and welcome. I'm putting in my vote for an Epcot resort -- for ease of walking to two parks and the Boardwalk activities/wealth of dining options there. My personal preference would be either YC or BC, though only because I've not stayed at BWI; we do love Stormalong Bay. A lot. A lot lot.

I'm right there with ya, Magic. I only vaguely know of Taylor Swift from reading about the Kayne West interruption incident. I had seen a couple of snippets of Cake Boss cake assemblies though. I am out-of-touch with lots of popular culture stuff. Got room under that rock?

Koh: I've done Poly twice (once Garden View and once GV-CL) and Contemporary in the tower many, many moons ago. Our current booking for October is for the Garden Wing. I'd say, if the price isn't of much concern, go with whatever resort-feel appeals to you more? The big draw for us to book the Garden Wing is the walking to MK. It was the big draw for us to switch our "favorite" over to the Epcot resorts (well, along with Stormalong Bay).

Okay, back later to chit-chat... off to Target for me.

Magic, you always get me laughing!! Until a few months ago I had not heard of Ed Sheeran either... having a teenager helps keep one in touch ... His music is soulful, very intense, and I have really grown to like his music....His big hit A Team was nominated for song of the year at the Grammys (deservingly so). We have followed Taylor for a few years, she has a great songs herself and I bet you have heard her music without realizing you were listening to her.... her big 2 songs from her new RED Tour are "Never Get Back Together" and "Trouble". Sam wants to see her again, maybe in Chicago with her friend....

And I didn't know that Carlos bakery was home to the Cake Boss!! Never seen the show but heard of it.

From the Bakery... Lobster Tails....(flaky pastry with light cream filing, they look like their name), dark chocolate mousse cake and Carrot cake...all yummy... also chocolate covered cannolis, red velvet cupcakes....massive calories...

BTW, the parking situation was insane! Being Good Friday just added to the chaos...but I was determined NOT to pay for parking, told Sam we were circling around until I found a spot! Finally lucked out after about 4 go arounds.... Oh just brings back memories of my days in NYC!!

Give our Miss M a few years and she have you out from under that rock....... young girls really like Taylor, she has a good message.... one of my favorite songs from an earlier album is "Mean" ... it's become a somewhat of an anti-bullying anthem.

Pas, thanks for updating us on Lulu'sMom! And totally understand the mental health day my friend... you certainly need it And Universal in just 2 days (we didn't change, right?)

lmhall2000, Welcome!! Too many great deluxe choices!! How about BC/YC for something new? SAB and Epcot/HS and BW so close...Also, would you consider renting points??... AKV, OKW, BLT offer the sleep chair... BLT has 2 bathrooms...

Koh, I am like you, would want to be upfront about the trip……perhaps mention the trip to your parents and say that your DH surprised you with this vacation idea….if they do invite themselves along you can suggest they come in for a few days at the beginning or end of your trip (your choice), citing that you would be happy to see them but you also have other plans in place that you will be doing with just the 4 of you, as you really need some alone time with the family after getting back into the work force. Sometimes directness is the best way. Can you plan other fun stuff in the summer and include them in those plans?

Jen, Mom's on board to watch the kiddos? Don't think twice.. just do it!!
