I am so excited to be on Crescent Lake for F&W One week from tomorrow and I will be there!
That will be so perfect for F&W! I highly recommend popping over to EPCOT for the orange dole whip with crθme de cacao (sp?) and the shrimp taco!

So, I had a temporary panic... like total. flippin'. freak-out. I went and logged on the look at tickets for the party because I still haven't bought them. (Didn't want to spend the extra dosh until the furlough thing hopefully ends.) Looked at the MNSSHP calendar with ticket pricing and it has the WRONG DATES ... 28th instead of 29th like I planned ... AND it was SOLD OUT!

... and then I realised it was the Disneyland site.
This is totally me right here! LOL

HELLO!

It's so funny you downloaded the music! I have the Disney Parks album the 'Happiest Celebration on Earth' (2005) on our iPod. It drives DH CRAZY when I decide to listen to it because it messes with the 'random' setting on shuffle. Usually, we get a blend of the most listened to songs/artists... then ever so often we'll hear "Ahhh, my siestas are getting shorter and shorter" or "One little spark of inspiration..." DD loves the album so he's forced to suffer through, even when I'm not there!!!




Congrats but I am SO JEALOUS! If I can find a SV at YC for military rate, I might have to jump on it! We LOVED YC and would book again in a heartbeat. They only had water view and CL available, so I'm content to stay at WL.... for now!!! Enjoy the location!!!
We loved AKL. The only night I felt like it was too far away from everything was coming home from DD. But DD is far from everything except the resorts on the lake (POR, POFQ, OKW, SSR)! We didn't do much back and forth that trip but we also don't mind the bus rides.

I almost bought that cd with all the ride music too! That one is next on my list!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So last night, dd1 was giving me a hard time again for going to WDW without her. She is off school from yesterday mid-day through Monday and she wants to go down soo bad. It just isn't happening this weekend. We have too much going on. And airfare is ridiculous (yes, I checked!). There are some great airfare deals for just before Thanksgiving but we would have to go mid week and she can't miss school. SOOOO we are looking at 2014. It is the first year the kids haven't gone in 5 years

BUT, we talked about next year. There is a 4 day weekend in February and luckily, its not Presidents' Day! My other two would have to be pulled out but it is so much easier for them since it is elementary and middle school. Then, in July, we are staying a week at the Gaylord for a national dance competition. So if we have APs, we can pop over for dinner, fireworks, a ride etc. We are possibly planning on being in FL for two weeks total. Original plan was one week at the Gaylord followed by one week on property but given the temps in October, I am not sure I can do July for a full week. Still debating..... THEN, we could do one more trip in October for F&W. So that would be three trips!!! I don't know if dh will go for all of that but I am noodling it.

I should get the Wishes soundtrack. I have Four Parks, One World which I LOVE, as well as Illuminations. Both get heavy play time in my car.

Well, I can concur with your logic. Think of it as an investment in the vacation fund!!! And totally refundable. I have one last final exam..and I am gonna start the thread.

False alarm....Systems all a go at GF....I was getting a little cheap in my head

I've got a good deal, I've got a good deal...I have to keep repeating this. It's only $190 more than our 10 nights at YC!!! I've got a good deal....
