Forgot to post that right now with your AP, a Disney Hotel discount is 20% off. Along with that you get a "character meal" for up to 5 people listed in your room. So, in May my girls and I are taking a trip, and we get a free meal for all of us! That is like $40.00 per person!


OK.... that is all.

Which hotel are you staying it? Which one are you considering switching to?

Today we went to an incredible Easter party at a friend's house! I have never seen anything like it! We had a great time, a nice dinner, some play time out side, I finished my book, and the kids are all packed except for blankys' which we will pack tomorrow. I hope you all have a great Easter!

Sounds like a fun time !

We originally had reservations at the Ayres Hotel which we would have to drive to and from each day. We got a decent AP rate however spending zero time at the hotel outside of sleeping /showering seems like a waste for 5 days. We are opting for the closer Anaheim Plaza Hotel/Inn which we can walk from..and we never eat breakfast nor will we have time with our plans. It will save us nearly $120 bucks which is alot when we are using the room to sleep/nap only.

We had to pay nearly 700 bucks in state taxes..and neither of us is really picky and have seen several people state it's fine for what we are there for. I'm just anxious to go already lol.

I have a beautiful 13 year old poodle baby whom I love with all my heart.

Now the important stuff...I am an Orange fan and I even have a lime green and Orange tie dye shirt that I made for my Disneyland trip in 2012...I am totally up for the pub crawl I cam do either beer or mixed drinks as long as there's no rum (we don't get along well)

I'm sure I missed something but hopefully you all can keep me on track.

Have a great night! I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better.
Hi Dawn! I too am new here and can't wait to join in on the 2014 trip. I live west of phoenix out by PIR.

Hello! I was just out there for a spring training game in Goodyear. My sister teaches in Verrado which is way west (or at least feels like it from Chandler)

It seems there are several of us here in the Phoenix area...cool!

Happy Easter, everyone! I am sure everyone is spending the day with their families. My boys are over at my dad's house... harassing him, no doubt. There are times when it sucks to be single and this is one of them! HOWEVER, I have had some time to myself to catch up and write a real post from a real computer so it's all good.

I am so excited for all the new (to this thread) faces (names, I suppose)... especially the PHOENIX area ones!

I am planning my first TRULY solo (not even the Divas to keep me company) trip in May. Really, the only planning I am doing is what hotel to book. I figure since it's just me, I can get away with the Anaheim Plaza because it's close and cheap... and I won't have to worry what anyone else thinks of it! I am thinking of a Wed/Thur/Friday trip because those are my days off and my parents would be willing to take care of the boys for me for a couple of days. It is GREAT that they are so close and so involved in the boys' lives. Their dad, while almost as close and an awesome parent, just can't work it out with his job to get them to school and all during the week.

Had a fledgling relationship crash and burn twice in the last month (I know, I know, how stupid can a girl be???? lol) so I am kind of turned off the whole "trying to date" thing. Who knows... maybe my prince will be waiting for me on this trip? I won't hold my breath!

Everyone have a wonderful day!!

Happy Easter! I noticed you stated you were staying at the Anaheim Plaza Hotel..we moved our ressies to there for our 5 day trip this week..we are low key and don't need anything fancy..never use hotel amenities anyway since when we are at Disney..we are AT Disney..lol.

Just curious if you have stayed there before ?

Hang in there on the relationship front! I know I had alot of bad luck with people for a long time but I can tell you have a great energy about you and things will be fine !

I hope you have fun in May

I have... once... this past October. It was, in a word, old. Perfectly sufficient to the needs of a solo traveler tho. The ironic thing was that they seemed to be in the process of replacing ALL the mattresses in the whole hotel.... the day we checked out.

I did enjoy its proximity to the parks and the PRICE, of course. And it was kind of nice not to be in a huge narrow hotel. The flowers and all the greenery were nice and the bathroom counter was HUGE... lots of room for all our stuff.

Thanks for your honest feedback! Me and DH are seriously non picky..as long as we can lay our head down..and saying over 100 bucks is HUGE on our last trip to DL as AP holders.....until December..lol

We probably will be in the room a total of 6-8 hours a day..and that's 99% sleep so it sounds like it will work ! I'll report back for you

Yes... it is essentially a place to sleep. I would imagine that with these new mattresses that should be even easier!

I will eagerly await your feedback. Have fun!!!

Mega multi-quote! Getting caught up...

Hello, ladies!! I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful Easter Sunday. We had a great day here. It was a day full of fun, family and food. I am feeling extra fat and happy right now. LOL

Tomorrow the Summer Fun exchange begins! I'll post once I get that thread up and running.

Have a great night, everyone.

Hi, Kerri!
Hope the driving went okay! I read about a 75 car pile up in another state, North Carolina I think. Pretty scary. But, they said it was in foggy conditions so... Still, stories like that make me almost rethink my road trip!

When in May? A bunch of the Divas will be there for MA, but I can't remember when...

As for your prince, he'll arrive, when the time is right. You'll find someone who will love you and make you truly happy. Just ask Katie and Amy S., two of our other Divas.

Tentatively planning on May 8-10. And my older son, Tristan (8) would like me to insert this smilie here:

As he says, "Do the dancing banana!"
