RCer friends are the BEST, and I know soon, my Disney days are only going to be solo or with my Dear Disney Friends -- so hopefully some of you won't mind sharing time with me in the future, I don't want to be lonely at my favourite place in the world!!!
Marie, one of these days we will meet up! It would be great! RCer friends are the best!

BWI might be lovely for a couples stay or a solo stay in the future though! (maybe I'll be able to meet up with my Dear Christine and share a room at BWI in the future ....so many possibilities I definitely want to stay there one day! )
Marie, both resorts are awesome! Kidani is so peaceful, we loved our stay there in 2011. you can't go wrong with either one.

Praying for some good news!

Have a Happy Hump day everyone!!

Love you guys
Marie, keeping your DH in my prayers as always.

CR...what? Who IS this kid? I looked at rooms. Meh. I'm not sold. I DO like that it is always the first freakin stop. I can't even begin to tell you how annoying it is staying at Poly or GF and waiting for a bus that finally arrives and it's packed. THE WORST, especially at GF as it is the last of the 3 stops. The monorail is always packed in the morning as well. I think the CR would give us a good edge on the competition.

He also says GF is too fancy. Uhhh, what? This year he was begging for GF. Next year it's too fancy. Is he going through puberty early or something?
Dani, face it, you gave birth to an RCer!

When she gets nervous about school I tell her to pretend she is going to Hogwarts
And will there be butterbeer? Cheers!! Good luck to DD at school and safe travels!

Hi guys. I have missed more than I've read I fear, but Wishes that you all are having a fun end of summer.
I'm thinking I missed the BIG deals on cheaptickets.com and Orbitz big deals, but I will def keep an eye on them. Thanks, guys, for mentioning these deals.

__________________ ____________________

sjs314: Big hug to you.

Minnie&Nana: Hugs for you and safe travels.

pas130: Congratulations on the new job! I am so glad to see you here on the DIS 'cause that means you have a wee little bit o' time for yourself. Loving the pics of DDs at GF.

disneydreamin247: It is so nice to see you here. Hoping for good outcomes for both Daniel and your BFF. With you in their lives, they have lotsa love and strong support. Enjoy the planning for next year.

Mousemommy1: Good you got your UT tickets so fast. So more resort ch-ch-changes? You go girl, CL! GF SL.

SueM: Glad you are having a nice trip, and enjoying Pop, GF and YC.

Missoutandabout: I was just in Detroit and the Killers are coming there in a couple weeks. Glad you enjoyed NY and the show.

Grumpy Grandma: I am sooo out of the loop about the FP+ and all that. I can't wait to hear how you like it all when you are there soon. You trip sounds like a real wild and fun ride.

wookie: Your trip is coming so fast. I know you really need this one. How was San An?

chimo2u: I like reading all your "plannings" for your next trip. An Aug 2014 trip sounds like just what the doc ordered. Speaking of doc, best wishes to you and DH next week.

jennyjinx: Glad your cruise is all paid up!

trishadono: I missed your CBR trip. Hope you had fun. Best wishes to DD on her big adventure.

JanetB: Howz it goin'? Please hook me up for a pg 1 Aug 2014 trip to BWI (yep, a RC ch-ch-change already away from Poly)! You know I am gonna book both of these date ranges, but the early line on dates is either Aug 17-21 or Aug 21-25. (disclaimer: subject to lotsa minor tweaks). I just adored our BWI CL room last year but our buds don't like CL, so maybe a BW view compromise. Lots of time, we'll see.

Gwynne, babyberger, i_heart:

Christine:

Marie: Best wishes for good news next week.

Trisha: Safe journeys!

Pas: How flippin' CUTE! Forgot to mention how much I enjoyed the Pas Girls' Christmas pics a few pages ago.

Janet: Our Pop QUEEN! When does Sam head back to school? Or is she back already?!

Ginny: Loving your plans, as always. I'm already dreaming about that Banoffee tart they'll be offering at the Scotland booth.

Candace: I know that's gonna change... but lemme tell ya, so you can calm the fears of the smell: unless something has changed since June, it smells just like BC/YC in the lobby now.

Jen: So... so... BWI?

Melissa: Are you still at Target?

And another gentle

You know, that was my only slight against AKL -- the busses. Everything else was so wonderful. They really should've made it walkable to AK. That would've given it some added bonus.

GF was amazing. So happy I had the opportunity to stay there. Got pool view in Boca Chica.

We are now at YC. Love it here. We stayed at BC before. So wanted to try YC! We have a standard view room, looking out front. Our first room was roofs of convention Center and service area, bleck. I couldn't take 12 days of that. So asked if there were any other rooms. So now we have a better view, but one of the large shared balcony looking. I would prefer a private one, but this is an improvement
Glad they could change your room! I didn't even realize there were shared balconies. Our view there was of the lovely bus stop and a dead tree... and that was GARDEN!

Added benefit of walking back if the monorail goes bust.

I have the distinct feeling that I will be creating monster(s) come this October. Our first F&W.

Magic: Sweet, another trip in the works! [I only wish we had been to NY. It was MD (and DE beaches).]

To everyone I've missed, sorry! I'm trying to do too much on my first day back to freedom -- also known as The First Day of School.

's Thanks guys for DH's best wishes! I will for sure let you all know how it goes

Candace: wow! the GF!!! That's exciting! I think you will really enjoy it, and somehow, I agree with you -- it sounds like it might just be your best choice for this trip! I am also really looking forward to hearing how you enjoy POFQ! It's one mod that's held my interest, and maybe for a solo trip / or a girls only trip, it might just be the ticket if I want something a little more cost-efficient for a future trip! I will be excitedly reading your review!

Dani I agree! we'd have a blast!! I will definitely be joining you one day, and your sweet munchkins too I'd love to share a trip with you guys! Your Danimal sure knows how to pick the resorts!! CR, hey???.....well, I agree with him! that monorail that runs through the lobby sure makes it look like no ordinary hotel nice taste young man


Janet for sure, I intend to meet you one day! That will be wonderful, I just know it!

Sheila I love AKL .... so it is still a front runner for me I should know not to mess with perfection by now, trying all these other places that haven't lived up to my AKL LOVE!!!!

Magic -- I would love to go in August , but alas, I'd probably melt from the heat!! I don't do well in excessive heat and humidity! It is looking like Oct/Nov 2014/ or Jan 2015 for me, depending on when my youngest gets into the military this upcoming year.... he's in grade 12 this year and plans on applying around Feb/ March 2014. We shall see how long the recruiting process takes....if he is around still in oct/ Nov or Jan, he'll be coming, if he's in basic trg. it'll be just hubby and I probably, and that means a whole different trip style! Maybe BWI CL??? we shall see......

Happy Thursday Everyone!!!!

Marie

Well I survived college move in day!

Having last week at CBR really helped.

Knowing we staying at VGF in January is my goal.

I know that that will be an awesome trip. 2 bedrooms will be nice.

Obama visited buffalo so exits were closed when we arrived and caused problems.

Then on way home he headed to Syracuse and our 3.5 hr drive took 6!!!

Home with Estancia Cabernet Sauvignon so all good

Love and kisses to all! Thanks for giving me something to read and feel each day. You a great bunch of ladies sorry for those who need TLC

You will be at WL with Dani and I...RC happy hour for evening offerings I can't believe how big my girls have gotten in 2 years looking back at that picture
Jeanette The girls look so happy at GF You can tell it is their Happy Place

Bob says no GF too, he thinks it looks snobby Thing is he loves BWI and the decor which is similar in fact he loves the look of BWI Lounge so I could talk him into GF I think
