Magic: No kidding that was seriously the best picture ever!!

Candace: Congrats to your DD on the last day of kindergarden! That is a milestone for sure.

Willows: Congrats on WL!! I bet you will love it there!

Sheila: Ooohh cruise or WDW?? What a hard decision. We should be picking one or the other too.


So even though I am stuck in this resort limbo for November I am super excited because in 25 days DH are flying into Boston for our trip away!! Maybe I should make myself a new ticker!!

Hi friends!!!! I will miss a ton with this - I have been reading. Trying to comment from memory:

Miss E - congrats to DH - how awesome!

Janet - woohooo for DD! That is so exciting. My soon to be High School DD is starting to make friends at her new school through dance team and I am thrilled. She wasn't going to know many people.

Marie - crossing fingers for DH! I hope he gets all the feeling and movement back.

Candace - congrats on graduation for DD!

Jenny - I would definitely sacrifice deluxe to get two trips in. Especially since you have the cruise first for this trip. Maybe if you do value or mod this year, you can do deluxe in May???

Pas - hope your day is better today! We might have bacon and waffles tonight- that sounds delish!

Sheila - I vote cruise!!!!!!!!

Hi to Linda, Magic, Christine, Willow, Koh, Wookie, Ginny, Heather, Dani, Luv, I heart, Sue, DetTigsGirl, and everyone else!!!

I started out my planning so innocently using Marriott points offsite, but it is actually MUCH cheaper to stay ONSITE with a RPR Package (go figure, but ). So far I have:
  • RPR (either Club or the King suite, same price)
  • Univ only Tix with Express Pass (no IoA this time, no time)
  • Cinematic Spectacular movie combo w/meal at Lombards (my DB will love that)
  • Meal/Mini Golf package (I am the mini golf sucker)
The packages will almost act as a dining plan and will allow DB order whatever he wants without being so buzzkill budget conscious. And either way we go we need tix since we are on a FL resident blackout time. For 3 adults the total price isn't coming in toooo bad... Should this thing at Univ not pan out, we'll still do WDW. Still holding the Poly CL for now but DH suggested GF for my DB since he's never experienced it. I also have WL in the running. I may have to chomp my own popcorn for this one.

Also, I am sorry you are having a difficult week. I hope it gets much better for you. Things here have been very sad and stressful lately with mom and dad.

Miss, first belated congratulations on DH's promotion. Very cool for you. I skipped about 20 pages trying to keep current.

Next, HOW AWESOME is that pic of DD at the StarWars thingie!!!!! OMG I hope you don't mind but I keep it up on screen since lately I need a good hearty laugh pretty often. It is the funniest thing I've seen in a long time.

Next, yep... we all like the thin Chicago pizza too. Ssssshhhh. DH's whole clan does the thin, too. Maybe once a a year we do deep dish. Giordano's also has thin crust, but they keep it on the down-low

I agree 110% with pas130... first POLY , then cruise .

Little rainy right now, sitting on the balcony waiting to go to Narcossee's with the husband. The boys went golfing this am and I hung out at the pool. Ran- ok monorailed- over to MK to buy some stuff with the 20 percent off before 1pm coupon and had lunch at the Bakery- Starbucks.

Janet- we are along looking for volunteers, you can come hang out in New Milford 😊

Think of Sarah when I pass by the Cafe.

Would it be worth a room only night at CR (deluxe garden wing) or Poly CL, or BLT 1BR villa? (At the end of our trip)

Hi Ladies....enjoying a glass of wine with DH and discussing things about our trip. Conclusions DH has come to:

A. I am a brat.
B. I am spoiled.
C. If I don't get my way, I will pout until I do.

I cannot argue anymore. It is all true. But the reality is this, I will not be getting my way with our Nov. trip. I will be holding onto the BC reservation until either an AP discount or GP room only offer comes out. I will then be switching to POR. Period. If it it not available, I will then be switching to ASM or POP 2 rooms. Double period.

I just knew in 2011 when we started off our onsite visits staying DELUXE it was going to be a problem. And it is. And doing CL this past trip did not help.

Okay, enough about that. Hope everyone is having a good night. Come chat with me!!!

Jen- we, too, are spoiled. We have only stayed deluxe and one time CL. DH is the one who always wants to book the Grand and he never wants to know how much anything is ...I'm supposed to make it all work. We are going to the dvc open house tomorrow pm, it will be difficult for him because they will actually say a price!!

It's ok. I think we are all a little "bratty" when it comes to Disney.

DH knows approximately how much our trips costs, yet when I suggest ways to lower the cost...going back to mod/value or dropping CL
I am met with futile resistance....so who's the diva, I ask him??? I think he's become as much of a brat as me now...

Yes exactly. As much as he says do it on the cheap, he would love it if we could stay deluxe again. So, where are you guys planning on staying in August now? I can't keep up!
