Janet - SO excited for you!! Same time we're there! Did we ever figure out a date, time, location of an RC meet?

Hugs to everyone else! Life is so short when you think about it...definitely time for a Disney vacation!! :-)

Hi Rcers! I layed out in my yard in the grass on a beach towel this morning like a teenager. I could hardly get up, but it's all good. Our pool cage lanai keeps the sun out and I need to get my upper legs a little tan before OKW.

I think I will have a "file" started on me at Univ soon, too. I just can't decide where to stay. The swaying factor to stay at HRH now is that the CL at HRH is on floor 7 and CL rooms are also on floor 7, which makes sense to me. With the others 2 CLs, excepting for a "request" to be near the lounge, CS reps said our room could end up anywhere on any floor of the hotel and not remotely near the PBH or RPR CL lounges. That seems silly to me.


Miss: So, did the dog wash YOU?

sjs314: Part of the Poly experience is the awesome array of dining option right there just steps away! Take full advantage and IMO don't change a thing. Oh, and I am still ROTFL that you left Bob propped against a wall at Wishes Dessert Party.

Koh1977: That is an excellent book and schedule you've made. Wow!

JanetB: You are the bingo QUEEN. Dole whips for everyone!! Hey, wanna meet at Cap'n Cooks at Poly for dole whips??????????????

SueM: I hope your week is a little less busy so you can R&R your knee.

Pas130: Soon, soon, but when do you leave NJ and check in to PBH????

babyberger: Yes, when the whole fam-damily is around the last thing you need is an RCer to make your head spin even more. Your early-line on ADRs looks great! Hope you get them all.



Where'd you go, Minnie&Nana ??? Hi to Kook, Wookie, GrumpyGrandma, Mousemommy1, Chimo2u and RCers big and small....

I feel like I am late to the party!

How come I never took time to read here? Probably because I am too busy changing my resorts and dates

Tentatively we have 1/1-1/2/14 at GF in Sugarloaf
Then 1/2-1/5 2 bdrm at VGv lake view
Then dd18 and I stay on 1/5-1/8 at AOA mermaid. (Doubtful but back up plan)

I have kept my VGF for 1/1. For the huge holiday price I was thinking land at 6:30p, arrive GF by 8p. We can monorail hop/shop/eat and get desserts 8-10 in lounge. Then morning I can check in for VGF and either move our stuff (us or bell services)eat breakfast in lounge. Then go to parks come back and if room ready great , if not we still have lounge access to 12 midnight! Dh does not like all 4 of us in one room but.... Since a holiday and only one night maybe I can convince him it fun. We will save enough $ to pay for dh and ds16 park tickets.

Dd wants RPC but yikes! holiday price is

I usually don't mind paying for a room even landing at 1am but the rate for that one day is so huge I think this may work better.

I will still watch for passholder rate for 1/5-1/8 for dd and I but I keep reminding her we got 2 bdrm so she has a bed not sleeper sofa and can't have EVERYTHING.

I made her a 18 magical years of disney photopass book because she has 38 trips in 18 years. Guess I created that disney monster

Glad to be here

Koh - love the autograph books!!! So creative!!!

Shelia - I am so jealous of your Poly cabana day! That sounds so relaxing And with all the Bob stress it sounds like you need it!!! And big to you!!!

SueM - glad you made a quick recovery with DD! Sounds like we need to keep a roll of tape handy for all these RC surprises

Heather - hope the painters finish up today and you can get back to your normal routine

Janet - YAY! So happy that you and Sam are going to Disney!!!!

Jen - hope the ortho consult wasn't to traumatic! I know I have missed so much lately. What are your latest Dis plans? Still cruise then BC? Or did you switch to POR

MAGIC - glad you got some sun this morning! It is a rainy day over on this coast. about the file at Universal!

Trishadono - welcome!!!

Hello to everyone else I am missing!!!!!

Ugh, Andrew just called, he took my Target RedCard to buy Steven's bday present (Wii U) and said the cashier looked at the card and wouldn't let him use it. Looks like I need to make a trip sometime this week

Hope everyone is having a great day!


Melissa

Dog is still dirty. Passing storms saved both myself and the dog from embarrassment. I'm not sure what excuse I'm going to use today...

Janet: Yaaaaaaay for booking!

Melissa: Ooooooh, poor you. Can you paint it in some girly colors to make it a bit more fashionable?

Jen: Hope it's good news from the orthodontist.

Magic: Must be an FBI mugshot-like montage of all of us up in their call centers.

All of this talk about kiddos and flying... I was 10 when I flew alone for the first time. (Actually, it was my first time on an airplane, too. ) Remember Piedmont Airlines? Back in those days, we all had to Flintstone it up the runway.

I do remember Piedmont We used to fly Eastern Airlines, another one long gone. So did the dog finally get a bath????

Ohhh, love the idea of making the boot pretty, especially after what I paid for it...different part of insurance with its own deductible of course

We do this for Toby, Dani's sister, for a Dad of a DIS friend of mine, and now of course Sarah. In January I gave a child a Brave pin in Sarah's memory... seems the perfect thing to do.
Janet You are so sweet to remember so many during your trips

One of the reasons I am not too sad we won't do CL. I know exactly where the lounge is, last trip our rooms were right by the Beach pool, and it would've been a pain to go back and forth...easier to order from the pool

Why is it that every time I consider not booking CL, the sounds of my kids yelling "I'm hungry!" jars me back into feeling as though I need it.
