I always enjoy following along with your trip planning!
Nice to have lots of great options...but how to decide??

Maybe you guys might like a split stay one of these trips.
I am not writing him off completely, but it's more of a tough love situation. Once he is willing to commit to the proper therapies and not just go to a Dr. Feel Good who will write an RX to appease him, then we can work on restoring our friendship.

Disney will be fabulous. Lily will be 3 1/2 and Danimal will be 10 so it will be easier to navigate. Each year gets a bit easier, and Danimal was 4 1/2 when I took him solo the first time so I know we will be ok next year.

3. One stop to MK!
4. The grounds are lovely and nice views of 7 seas lagoon
5. We like the smell
6. Price for New Years at villa was
7. Only stayed there once and dd and I enjoyed the food and building, staff but lounge space blah so ate in our lovely room and balcony

The girls will love afternoon tea, scones and trifle
Now...I am considering GF again If DS has his issues in check next year it may be an option again!

Iheart: GF at 42% off?? Did I read this was thru Orbitz? Wow! Congrats!!

Pas, you know I always love seeing the Pas girls!! Beautiful hmmm still waiting on dates my friend... and hopefully Dani can join us too!

Wookie, love your Magic bands . Since Sam and I did not move over to POP our bands were not activated in August... but we have them as souvies and for the next time we go.



Dani, I understand It is not selfish at all. Stay strong.



Definitely an MK resort! Has Daniel ever experience SAB?



Me too Jen!



Jewels.. ALL changes count!! Before, during and even all the mental ones!! This bunch has made changes every step of the way!





Ginny, love your recent changes! (RC list has been noted ) I want to try both Sanaa and Jiko some day. Currywurst? hmmm never heard it.... so it's good huh? Hoping your tix snafu is fixed soon. So close my friend!!
----------------------------------------------------------

Hey - All August RCer's!! Count me in too!! Right now we are 8/22-8/27 and I may add two days at the beginning. FD starts 8/20 next year (and that's what I booked...at least for now...)

Hi Sue Sure you are having a blast!!
We must have been posting simultaneously! Danimal has never been to SAB. He scoped it out when we went to Beaches and Cream last year, but he wasn't even that impressed. He definitely wants to do a water park, so SAB wouldn't really matter one way or the other. I think he really wants to stay at Pop again too so maybe he will do 4 or 5 nights there first. I want him to be happy.

It's a slow morning for me ..... so I've been pricing out stays for Aug 2014 .... using the FD BB offer that I can book in 6 days!!! If I book it I'll probably book POR or CS. Then maybe a few nights DVC.

We leave for WDW in 16 days!! I am so ready for this trip!!

On a good note, the lady making the Minnie & Mickey Jack-O-Lantern appliquιs for our MNSSHP night sent me a FB message saying that she should be shipping them out Thursday or Friday, which should stop one of the things keeping me from sleeping. When I paid her through Paypal, I hadn't used it in so long that it didn't have our new address. I sent her a FB message with the correct address, but still keep worrying that she will forget about the new address and send it to the old one. I messages her about it this morning and she thanked me for reminding her and told me about the order almost being ready.
wookie 17 Days!

MM-We love UT, too, and ordering is so easy!

Sheila, I think it kind of depends on what kind of tickets you buy. (How much old backstock they have.) We got 5 day hoppers, they are the new green plastic ones. I know folks who have easily linked both the paper and the plastic ones into MDE. UT is helpful over the phone if someone needs linking tips for the paper tickets.

Iheart-42% off for GF? Congrats!!

GG-About FP+, I'm learning, too. I totally agree with just going with the flow. I am looking forward to hearing about your 5 resort vacation!

Dani
-I've missed you! Good to hear from you. Your beach plans sound like lots of fun, enjoy!

Jenny-I'll be at BWI/CL the end of Sept. If you have any qs let me know. BWI is really nice, convenient. Big lounge is a plus!

Trish-Thats too funny that your DD texts you with travel suggestions. What a deal on your room rate!

Janet-I might be one of those full circle changing people

Minnie- Always good to hear from you!

Miss- Who knows how they make those class lists, I'd wonder, too. I hope MissM is getting settled and meeting new friends.
About FB-I appreciated your tips about how to create an incognito account. I'm not crazy paranoid, I just have some wacky distant relatives that would probably drive me bonkers if they knew I was on it.

Marie-Hope your dh is continuing to heal, thinking of you all!

Melissa-Yay for F&W trip!

Kook-I am backreading your BWI thread, so helpful.

Jewels1916, welcome!


GG,Septembergirl, DznyCrzy, Wookie,Babyberger, -Your trips are right around the corner, woo-hoo!!

============================================
Dh and I realized we were really wishing we could dine at Saana and Jiko-both big favorites of ours. I was very lucky to get reservations..and to make it easy our first two nights are now at at AKL/CL.
I read one too many complaints about the evening offerings at YC...so we're at BWI/CL. We arrive at BWI the day of the soft opening of F&W, so it should be an extra fun day!

Just in case you didn't hear, starting Sept 1st Sommerfest in Germany is going to have currywurst!! This was a huge fav of ours years ago when we lived in Germany. I think we'll head right for that once we're checked in on Thursday.

I've been working with Disney's IT folks on a ticketing issue. I have to say they have been very helpful, and we are making progress. I hope it's all fixed before our trip.

That's about all from here, hope everyone has a great day!
gwynne Thanks for the tix info, right now still not sure if we want 5 day base, 6 day base or 5 or 6 day PH.......still tweeking ADRs since changeing resorts and I know we want lots of F&W time so we might need PH

Perhaps I will call before I order

That currywurst sounds good!

DH is just not at all into the "theme" at CR...not one bit...and that coupled with the fact that Chef Mickey's is right there (our most despised restaurant on property...well....)

What do we do?????
Candace Hmm I thought for sure you were going to go with CR but now not sure what you are apt to do

Dani Is the Poly out of the running due to all the construction? I am so glad I switched if I took Bob there he would have hated all the walls up. He hated them at MK and last March we went over to YC for breakfast and we went in one way, go to leave and had to turn around and exit a different way and Grumpy Grumbled

Sheila and Christine....you both have this pix, but thought I'd share with our RC family..... My mom's friend took this pix years ago at sunset and at first did not see at the image of the angel.

For Jason, Shawn and Toby ...
