Woa, get her on there!

My daughter (Lisa/Rapunzel34) will probably not be coming but leave her on for now. I am not reserving a room and so will need to find a spot in someone else's room.

Thanks Stacie for getting Dashing Divas signed up for MouseAdventure! Can't wait until Sept. 29!

You know I will! And I think I'll join you Saturday night As of right now. I may be kidnapping a friend that weekend so she can cheer me on and have fun in the parks after both events. I'll let you guys know.
Sound good!

Boo, just realized I'm blocked Sunday too. Guess I'll have to spring for a block out ticket. Anyone know what they cost now?

So long story short Jessica and I will be there in Sept of this year .... so Oct 2014 for F&W is almost a must do!! We maybe staying onsite, resort or DVC but we may also be staying in a timeshare. Please post dates as you firm up your plans .... I'm pretty flexible on dates and would love to meet up with some Divas!!!
We're not to the point of picking dates yet. Since we will most likely stay at one of our timeshares off site, we'll probably be picking dates close to January.

Do you recall the price? I can't make it out on the tag.
I didn't pay much attention, but they are usually in the $4 to $5 range.

I miss the coast. Beautiful 68 - 70 degree days. Aaaaahhhh..... It's 100 degrees here today and slightly overcast. Yuck. Plus, I forget until I've been up there for a few days how NOISY it is here. Traffic. Trains. Neighbors' hell hounds (that had a barking tantrum at 12:20 the other night). The A/C unit. The Spouse. It's a constant assault on my poor ears. I like QUIET. Sssssshhhhhh! LOL I'm trying to figure out when I can sneak back up there again....

Hello Everyone!

Well turns out I am sneaking another little trip to DL in. Thank goodness for miles! A friend of mine called and she and her son have annual passes too, so we are all going together. Surpising the boys with one night PPH concierge level. My son will be thrilled! Then was able to get the other two nights on bonus time at Dolphin's Cove, which we stayed at last time and really enjoyed.

Anyhow, planning on some pool time for sure. Anyone else going to be around? Anyone working? I'll come visit you My friend will be so impressed. Actually trying to convince her to go on the Diva trip.

We arrive Thursday around midnight, and then leave Monday night. It is going to be super fun, but super exhausting, I am sure!

Tracey

Hello, ladies!! I just realized I haven't been over here in awhile. It's been busy around our house with back-to-school stuff, and when I do get online I've been on Facebook.

I see I haven't missed much.
Hope everyone is doing well!!

Have a great day.

I've stayed twice at Dolphin's Cove. That's where I can use my timeshare points. I like it, but I like being closer to the parks more. LOL

Well, hubby had a job interview in IOWA today. In the southeast corner, right near the Mississippi River. He's back at his hotel in Moline, IL. We were on the phone for much of his 90 minute drive from Moline to the job site and he saw lots and LOTS of corn farms. He says he knows why people that live there don't want to leave. He said it was quite pretty. Yeah. Until a tornado blows thru. LOL No, we are NOT moving. It's a 2 year job and he will take it if the money and conditions are right and we'll just see each other once every 6 weeks for 2 years.... but I have Mickey to comfort me, right? With nobody to complain, those little 2 day jaunts down to Anaheim would be super easy to get away with! LOL There's my silver lining. I have a bridal shower to go to this weekend for one of his cousins. Two weeks from today I'll be at mom's up in Portland for a few days. The fun never ends. LOL

Serra is house (and bird) sitting at my parents' while they're at the coast for a week, so I stopped by to check on her last night. We chatted about the trip as I was a bit concerned about the meet & greet menu. She's super picky and I wanted to check with her to see if she wanted me to ask if it was possible to replace her dinner with chicken strips and fries or something. She said no, she'll try whatever the menu is, she doesn't want to ask for anything special. This is kind of a first for her, she very rarely tries anything new, maybe she is finally growing up?

Anyway, we also talked about rides, some of which she has refused to do in the past, like California Screamin', She has assured me that she'll try it once, but if she hates it we're not going near it the rest of the trip. I think I can live with that, she loved Rock n' Rollercoaster and I swear it's exactly the same ride, just outside.

I'm getting super excited about being able to have some time with her away from the rest of the family. It's so tough to get her out of the house lately, and we don't get any one on one time. With her turning 18 in October I'm starting to get all nostalgic and stuff. Yikes!

OK So i realize that I am several months late on this (I am going back and resolving to at least skim each and every page and am only on page 69) but REALLY? There is NO WAY you are 50! I didn't ever get to talk to you on the last trip but I did see you (and I went back to the page near the front with all the photos) and all I can say is NO WAY! I figured you're younger than I am!
