I believe there are people who have changed resorts on their way to the resort. And even after checking in.

For a package this is true. Room only reservations do not charge a fee to be changed.

I'm sitting here laughing .... because I know you don't plan this far in advance and you must be thinking what have I gotten myself into!!!

Had to quickly pull over to the shoulder so as not to get rear ended when I completely lost all power. Couldn't even put my hazards on.

DH came and called a tow truck to get it o the dealership. Still under warranty so it should cover it. They are pretty certain it was the alternator. It went out and so I was running completely off battery and when that was used up, the car was done. Charged the battery up just fine, and the alternator should be ale to be changed out by Tuesday. Until then I get to drive DH's car. :-)

Good Morning Everyone!


We finally made it back.....




The trip was wonderful and very relaxing....weather couldn't have been more perfect. Of course we made 100s of pictures no shock there. Spent most of our time in bathing suits by the pool/beach. Rented a golf cart one day and rode around Isla Mujeres...very cool. Did the dolphin swim which the kids loved....boys did some tarpon fishing in the lagoons (with huge crocodiles...which made me very nervous!) And enjoyed a plethora of fruity drinks





Spent yesterday washing clothes and unpacking. Have lots of catching up to do on the Boards since I only pulled my computer out twice while on vacation.

Now back to reading....

Heather: Welcome back! Sounds like a fab trip! What a beautiful place.

Sue: glad to hear you are getting your suttures out, and count me in as wanting to see the puppy pics too!

Jeanette: BLT...awesome! Sounds perfect to me!!Is that it now?

Wookie: I saw that about Star Wars land too! 2018 is so far off though!

Melissa: Hope the appointment went ok, and you have some time for yourself today. Check in when you can.

Janet: Thanks, DD8 was really proud of herself, she was also in the girls relay. This was my girl who as a little one was soooo shy, nervous and anxious. She has changed into a confident girl now not afraid to try anything.

Candace: POP sounds great for you and your BFF, why spend a lot of your room when you will hardly ever be in it? I am sure you two will be shutting down the parks!

Miss: All the songs I like right now have some sort of inappropriate lyrics too, UGH, usually I just end up playing then anyway. The DD's always seem to get the words wrong anyway! It 's hilarious!

Well, not too much going on over here. Have to do some major last minute running around today for DD8 (soon to be 9 ) birthday tomorrow! I can't believe it, not that she is nine but that I am not finished shopping for her!! She didn't want a big party this year, just her BFF sleeping over on Friday and a BBQ. I must say I like that. I am sort of over the big parties.

Also have to get new tires on our van, my parents are coming over so hopefully I can convince my Mom to chauffeur me around to get more presents!

Have a great day everyone!

Jen

Thanks!! And you shouldn't have said that ...I could possibly bore you with more. You have no idea how many pictures we get when on vacations Like in the 1000s no lie.... (my dad and I are a bit obsessed)

I know exactly what you mean! We were super excited that DD7 didn't want a party, and wanted to go to WDW instead....works for me!

Good luck with the tires...never a cheap endeavor.

Linda, several of my Disney friends have done the TOT 10k and it is usually hot and humid. It would still be fun for you two ....but I think you should go for the half in January. It would be perfect for you and Janet!

First time poster on this board

You can see my by sig that we have had many trips to WDW. Our next trip is just DH and me, mid September for 5 nights, with FD. We were going to go on a couples retreat with our church in the fall, but when FD came out, we said, hey, we can go to WDW for not a lot more, so that was the plan. Stay at the POP, which we truly do love. However we love the water taxi and have looked into staying at Riverside. There is nothing available, and I have been looking for awhile. The theme at French Quarter isn't really for us. However Coronado Springs has room available at our time frame. Since we are trying to do this on a budget, we would have to not do the Wild Africa Trek if we chose to do this. We had lunch at the Pepper Market last year, and loved the resort. There are no conventions listed on the WDW site.

Good morning Have a few minutes so figured I would finally try to catch up.

Christine - LOVE your new avatar And happy to see you here on the boards

Heather - love the pics!!!! Looks like you had an amazing time Glad you got through the laundry and unpacking yesterday, I always feel like I am unpacking for days

Jen - I totally hear you, I love the fact that we are past big parties now. I hope your mom can chauffeur you around today while the tires are being done. Doing things for myself today, but taking Sarah with me as I cannot leave her home with the boys, she fights with them to much

SueM - YAY for being able to take a real shower I do totally remember that! Before knee surgery I had a cast from ankle to hip to immobilize the leg and showering was impossible If you want, I can try to walk you through posting a pic or you can email me the pics and I will post them for you. Just send me a PM.

Wookie - I hate the discrepancies between the Disney menus and the apps, not to mention all the websites have something different posted. With the Wave, the menu is constantly changing based on local ingredients and the chefs, so it is hard to plan that one.

Miss - I am still cracking up about the lyrics. My kids are exposed to some pretty bad lyrics too I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that something opens up at BC or YC

Got to run, didn't get as far as I wanted, too many interruptions. But wishing everyone a happy day


Melissa
