Jen: Wow! Your trip is sounding FABULOUS! Way to go on that Pixie Dust... I guess WDW doesn't own the rights.

Magic: Sorry about the Universal stay. Was it just the hotel or staff or everything?

Ginny: I love those changes! You've done CL at BWI before, right?

Candace: Wooooooooooooooooot on CR! The "quiet" sold me on booking there... well, until we switched. (Kinda miss having that as our upcoming resort. We'll get back there one of these trips.)

Kook: Gremlins. There are Gremlins in your washing machine. Mine's been acting up since yesterday. Just hope it's not this one...



Heather: We got our flexi-rods off Amazon. (They need to pay me commission, I swear.) They've got packs of 6 for around $4 each in differing diameters; I think the brand is named Diane or somesuch. Very soft and lightweight. Is the house all back in order?

Sheila: Still holding strong at the Poly?

Wookie: Things still quiet at your house, I hope? Go go Swan Booking! Looking forward to hearing how you like it there. Looooooooove the location.

Marie: Glad you enjoyed your mini-vacation!

Trishadono: Those tricksy passholder rates, they'll get ya!

I'm so excited that I had to come and tell y'all.... we have the Swan booked and our WDW trip is totally paid off. If that wasn't enough reason to be all I talked to Donnie at the bell services at the Swan and he said they would be more than happy to transfer our luggage to the AKL for us!! WOO HOO!!! As Phil would say, "I'm happy, happy, happy!!"

Now, I'm off to create a new ticker to include the Swan stay.

I know there are a lot of rides I won't be able to do, due to me looking like Kermit's twin sister when I get off of them. Then the DH will spend the entire day making me feel bad because I'm not riding something with him, that I know will make me sick, or being mad (and embarrassed) that he tried to ride something and couldn't fit.


Quote:Wookie this sounds familiar my DH has the same problem. He refuses to go back to cedar point because of it. Well not realy into coasters myself I prefer rides like pirates
We only go to uni for WWOHP

I tried being a good mom and rode those awful bone shaken, neck lashing, stomached curling rides on one trip and that!!!! Was enough

Now Harry is my fav and will go back for gringotts rr ride when it opens next summer

I didn't mind Hard RockHotel but it just isn't disney.

If you want, I can pick the DH brain about yours. I just need to know the year, brand, and exactly what is it or isn't doing. He may be able to narrow it down to a few things with that info.

Yes it has been quiet, and I hope it lasts at least a few more days. I know we'll love it since they have the Heavenly beds, but we won't be there long. We'll hopefully arrive not much later than midnight and will be checking out no later than 11 AM the next morning.

I just managed two loads this afternoon with no problems. Where's some wood to knock on? *knocks on skull* I will definitely take you up on the offer if it starts acting wonky again.

Okay, so you'll have to let us know if the "Heavenly" bit lives up to its name... being on the Boardwalk, y'all will have a good time -- even for just a night.

I swore I'd never complain about gas prices after living in Europe (was roughly $8.50-ish a gallon when converting £ to $ and litres to gallons). I will break that promise now... my last 3 fill-ups were at $4.50/pg, $3.95/pg and the last was an el-cheapo fill up in Michigan at $3.79/pg. Hope the Petrol Gods shine favorably on your trip.

Miss - NO BLT not even deluxe! If I can convince DH to go it will be POP or POR. I haven't even mentioned it to him and my concern is the heat. I'll keep you posted.

Ah, but you'll be THERE! (And you'll have BLT next year.) Have you guys stayed at POR before? (So far it's the only Mod we'd be willing to return to.)

**knocks on skull** Just a little extra luck to keep it in working condition.

I'm pretty sure they are the same kind of Heavenly beds that have at the Westins. If they are, they do. We stayed at a Westin in San Antonio, TX for our 6th wedding anniversary and we just wanted to lay in bed and watch tv and not move.

And there I thought our gas prices were bad. I only put the cheap stuff in the minivan, although I know I should put the high octane in it. I think the last time I put gas in it was $3.49. I know the last time we drove to WDW, gas prices were cheaper in Orlando than they were at home.

I know I have been neglecting everyone and I will be back after I clean up from dinner, but.....


WE ARE GOING TO WDW Labor Day weekend!!!!! Waiting to hear back from David's cousin to see if they are going to join us. If so, we will most likely staff off property at the Lake Buena Vista Resort Village and share a 4 BR. We have done that in the last and have such a good time. If not I am going to push for POR but it is $50 more a night than POP and I am trying to sell this as a cheapy weekend

Lost art indeed and not so good when the creek runs dry. Yes, yes, I know I'm suppose to buy a new one, so says DH and you, but will they take away 4 if I buy a new set? You see, the house came with a set and I moved in with a set and well, I'd be pleased as punch with a new red pair, but not if it means I then have 6...

So a little side trip on over to MK while she was launderizing? Or at least that's my interpretation.

Thanks for asking about Miss M! She's off at her second day of GS camp. Hopefully she won't come back with too many skeeter bites today. They zeroed in on the spots I missed yesterday. Bad, inadequate bug-spraying mommy, that's me.

I got some flexi-rod curlers for her hair, to try and do some proper spiral-like ringlet thingies. She went to bed looking a tad Medusa-like. Looked very cute this morning when I unwound them.
Fun with hair! She is definitely BBB material.

So the story is legit? I thought Jeanette the Amazing posted that she was only going to WDW with the girls. Are you saying the boys didn't know or she agreed to do laundry while at the park so that she could go? Either way, this is nuts.

Availability changes, and with the military discount, I think it changes frequently. Good for us resort changers, we can always pick up the phone.

And thanks, Kook for your sweet words about the furlough. It's annoying to dh, so we try to go out and enjoy lunch together, or visit someplace new. Thankfully, I'm not writing tuition checks or having to make plus loan repayments anymore. In our case, this is doable. If our kids were still in school or college, it would have been a different story. Still, it's not right. I keep hoping someone who understands how wrong this is will speak up. It's time for a good person in D.C. to lead the way toward compromise.
I hate that this is happening to so many and may continue for years to come. But, I'm so happy you have some trips planned. It's great to have WDW to look forward to

We loved your comment - so true! Only a true WDW nut would understand what 8 hours early means to a person



It's too bad you aren't close to us, you wouldn't have to wait for an appliance guy all day. I would make sure my DH was there at whatever time you wanted him there.

I thought of you when it wouldn't drain this morning. I really do need to move back to TX.

No, sorry the WDW military tickets and room rate is only for US active and retired military. But, they do have those FD offers for Canadians, don't they? Or is that only for UK?
