I really loved POP, and that sounds like a great plan. I wouldn't want to waste that $$ either. I'm doing the pizza too...once we check into the pool view on the 11th...It sounds delish..so info about that will be much appreciated too!

Have a great afternoon everyone...hoping my Bruins pull out a win tonight..even if I am at work for most of the game.
I'm going to assume this is the one the person used, since it says it's in the Disney area.

It looks like sunburn but only on the spots I sprayed her with the bug spray. So, up to rinse her off (again) with some Cetaphil and slather on some Caladryl lotion... and a dose of Benadryl tonight before bedtime. She's feeling fine... it just itches like crazy so I'm constantly having to tell her to leave it alone.
Hopefully, her itching will stop soon.

Both my DS like the Clone Wars. I just think they like Star Wars in any form they can get it.

So I just got chastised for buying what DH called junk - 2 pool noodles, goggles for DS, and penguin travel pillow for DS since he's obsessed with penguins...definitely not the time to mention the pirate themed things I've been collecting for the reveal...

Sounds like my DH.

I'm like your DS, I love penguins!! When we went to Sea World, we spent an hour (easily) inside the penguin house. The youngest DS held his nose the entire time because he said "it was stinky".

We all really liked it. There were a couple of things I was exactly happy about, but since you haven't seen it (and it would give to much away), that is a conversation for another time.



Well, as long as there isn't a baby still in the crib...



With that, you can put down your deposit once they release the 2014 package prices.

Stick around as long as you like. After this trip, we for sure aren't going back until after Star Wars Land opens up.




Super cute!!



Only 76 days and I will be there in person.



I hope you took flares in with you in case you get lost and need to signal a search party.

ok, so I'm just full of questions today....maybe it's the whole putting off taking my final.

1.Split stay questions
I finally convinced the DH that with us getting in at midnight and leaving by 10 AM the next morning it was a waste to spend close to $250 (once you add in taxes) for a stay at the Swan. He opted for the Pop Century instead. Since we have never done a split stay, how does it work with getting them to transport your luggage? Do we just call bell services the morning we are checking out of the Pop, they will come and get it and then it will magically appear later in our AKL room? Do I need to allow time for bell services to come and pick up the luggage? In other words, we need to stay with the room until they do pick it up and I need to make sure to allow enough time that we are out of the room by the 11 AM check out? Then do we stop by the Pop front desk before heading off to the AKL? Finally do you think it would be ok to just leave the minivan overnight in that front parking lot (where you park when you check in) since we'll be getting in close (or after midnight) and checking out before 10?

2. Pizza delivery
So, after looking through the Food Porn thread, I found out that Giordano's Famous Chicago Pizza will deliver to the AKL. We love a good Chicago stuffed pie!! I called the DH and told him about it, and he approved my idea of having on delivered the day we are hanging out all day at the resort before MNSSHP. Well I have had pizza delivered at hotels and had one of two things happen. 1) when the delivery person arrives at the front desk, they call your room and make sure it's ok to send them up 2) when the delivery person arrives at the front desk, they call you, and tell you to come to the front desk to pick it up. Does anyone know which way it is handled at Disney resorts?

3. 20th wedding anniversary
I am totally convinced that we NEED to go to WDW for our 20th wedding anniversary, especially since the England or Aulani trips I want to take are really looking out for now. After all the recent problems with cruises, I don't really want to take a non-Disney one. I am thinking the DH and I can drive to WDW stay only a couple of days and stay at the GF. Then we could do something else, like a beach, in Florida. I was thinking maybe Key West, at first, but now I'm thinking that may be too far of a drive. It may only be about 7 hours to Key West from the Orlando area, but it's about a 24 hour drive home. Any suggestions of places to tempt the DH with? I'm thinking if I can tempt him with some deep sea fishing, he may be willing to go to WDW for a few days at least.
ETA...ooooo or maybe we could do DL and then tour CA's wine country.

Queen of Split Stay here .... To transfer luggage just call bell services and they will come to your room, tag and load up your luggage. Now my only advise is to make sure that you have everything you'll need for the day with you (swimsuit, sunscreen, etc) as your stuff probably won't make it to your new resort until between 3-4 pm. Your luggage will not magically appear in your room. You will have to call down to bell services and they will bring it up to you. You will need to be in your room when they pick up and deliver your stuff. I usually allow about 20 minutes or so at both ends. Hope that answers some of your questions.

Just one more question about it....
Since we will be driving, we will have a cooler. What do you think the best way to handle getting it to the AKL is. Should we do it ourselves, and just hope our room is ready so we can put it in the room before heading to the MK, or will bell services take that as well (there wouldn't be any ice in it, but there would be drinks)? In case it makes a difference, it's the kind that can roll and has a handle like luggage.

I hate when that happens. Before I figured out how I could fix my problem with that happening, I would just get so frustrated that I would have to walk away from my laptop.

All is good here. Hopefully, the guy working on installing the new shower will get it done today. He was having some issue early and had to leave to get something he needed. The mil was saying that it was something about an issue with the welding.

oooo, and super funny story to share about the DH.
The DH is an appliance repair man. When he is on his way to a customer's home, he calls them, let's them know he is on his way, and approximately how many minutes until he arrives. Well, he is used to women calling him "honey", "sweety", "sugar", so at first he didn't think anything about it. According to him, the conversation went something like this to "his last customer".
"Female customer" - Hey baby (in a very sexy voice)
DH - Hi, this is David, with (insert company name), just wanted to let you know that I am on my way to your home and should be there in approximately x-minutes.
"Female customer" - What do you want honey (in a very sexy voice)
DH - To fix your appliance
"Female customer" - What do you want sexy (in a very sexy voice)
DH - (At this point the DH thinks something is off) To repair your dish washer. I am with (insert company name) and I have an appointment with you to come out today and look at your dishwasher.
"Female customer" - (who suddenly lost her sexy voice) Just what number do you think you called?
DH - Looks at the ticket and repeats the number he thinks he called
"Female customer" - Sir, you have dialed the wrong number. This is a police sting number with the purpose to catch men looking for (thinks of Disney way to say this) paying for love.

Moral of the story, check the number twice before you dial.

Looks like your DH and I learned the same lesson. Tell him not to dial 800 instead of 407 when calling the WDTC

Well, I've offficially lost my mind...just changed BACk to Beach Club! The Grand /monorail resorts were calling my name, but so was club level. GF club was a bit more than I wanted to bite off, Poly and Contemporary sold out. I know we will love Beach Club though. I've been following that thread for months and I've learned so much from those great folks
Leaving in TWO days!!! Checking into POR for the night on Thursday and into BC on Friday! Can't wait!

That had to have been even more of a shock than him trying to call a customer. It really scare him, when the male officer started talking. Luckily, they both believed that he had dialed the wrong number, otherwise, they said they could have arrested him. Which would have been really bad, considering the work phones are in my mil's name.

I would have bell services move it .... usually I just point out what items need to be refrigerated and they handle it. I've had them move milk, butter, yogurt, water and sodas .... everything has been fine!

Luckily, we won't need anything to be refrigerated since the drinks are only for the ride there and home. Once we get to WDW, the cooler is just used to basically store the drinks.

JM asks me everyday how many more days until our Disney trip. I am glad someone in this house is showing excitement for this trip. Even if the only reason he is looking forward to it is all the candy he thinks he will get from MNSSHP.

Just stopped at the Five Below which I actually really like and got 2 noodles, some goggles for DS, a hair thing so I can try putting my hair up in a bun some days instead of always a ponytail when we're there, AND a penguin travel pillow for DS! (He has a dog one, but this one is a penguin so I couldn't pass it up. Figure I can use his other one in the car). :-)
I just order 2 inflatable noodles from Amazon, for floating around SAB
