Maybe we should always have a sunken treasure in hand and then that will just think we have had too many!!

I am so hoping for that because then she can enjoy SAB, etc. Any tips on touring WDW in a cast? Thanks in advance!
Oh no...speedy recovery wishes...

Jim and I are going on a trip the end of September to relax at my happy place. I need to avoid stress as much as possible as that tends to make the tremors much worse. Good thing Jim shares my love of Disney!!

Anyway, we will be at the Wilderness Lodge in just 58 more days and I just got an email saying my dessert party is booked!!

It appears that my new RA med is working (YAYAYAYAY )!!!! Finally, after 8 previous tries, looks like we got it right! Just awaiting the labs to see, but fingers crossed that this one doesn't stop working for a *VERY* long time.

I also got permission to taper my steroid, after WDW in...what's that??? TWO WEEKS...YESSSS!!!!

So happy...was very worried when we booked this trip in April that I would be in a scooter...but nope not this time!!!!

Sorry about those kiddos HubbDave and Karebear...
Great news for you both!!

Okay, my husband thinks I'm crazy, but I know all of you would understand. We just got back from Disney World last Wednesday. School starts for my daughter on Aug. 21st. We have premier passes because we upgraded our Disneyland premium passes when we were in Florida. I want some use out of them before they expire on Dec. 28. It is hard to plan during the school year, even for a weekend trip, soooooo....I thought it would be fun to slip in a mini-trip to Disneyland from Aug. 13-16th. We would drive (6 hours) and stay in a cheap motel to keep costs down. Is that crazy or just normal for someone who hangs on the Disboards?

Hope this helps.
Thanks for the response! I guess online checkin is not necessary!! I can't read the pic due to the blurriness but I haven't even figured out how to upload a pic on here so I give you credit!!

Not crazy at all We just went in the beginning of July and after some good luck, we are set to arrive on Sunday another few days
SW provided us flights for free using points so we are pumped.

If it were me, I would not get on this bus, either coming or going, without a little something in my refillable mug! That's why it's a good idea to throw one of these in your back pack or string bag.... you never know when an Sunken Treasure emergency is going to come up!

Now picture this... you are on the bus, which is circling every Disney property... But YOU don't have a care in the world, because buried in your refillable mug is a ice cold Sunken Treasure.... Ahhhh.....

Sooooo not crazy! If only I could drive 6 hours and be at Disney! I live in Canada. I drive 9 hours, and then fly 4 hours
Hope it works out or you! Enjoy

If this were a poll, everyone here would answer not crazy. But, when you ask all the patients in an asylum if they are crazy, they'd also all say no.

I'm about 3 hrs away from WDW. We have annual passes and are trying to do at least one trip a month. So far we have not missed it. But, like you, school is starting soon and kids are moving to upper schools, so even harder to plan. We are all still going to try! When you mix someone that loves Disney and a cheap bastar... you'll want to get every penny's worth of those tickets!

Besides, enjoy life! you should go! I know I would be for sure!

Just Back YC CL LV!

Hello! I just had a wonderful trip to YC. We had booked SV CL(only thing left, I was told at booking) found out at check-in we were placed in a pool/lagoon view room (5149.) We arrived at around 11:30 from Universal Studios. We were taken right up to CL and checked-in. Our room was even ready! It was our first time staying CL and it was fabulous. We ate breakfast every morning from the offerings in the lounge. The tables were always busy, so we brought our stuff back to the room. This was a relaxing trip (we were just at the BC in April) for us and we spent a lot of time at the pool and so we were able to take advantage of the club offerings throughout the day, which was nice. The staff was very courteous, always asking what they could do for us. We did have a fridge in the room and saw boxes of fridges in the hallway on our first day, as they were already replacing them.

It was good that this was a relaxing trip for us, because Disney was very busy with long wait lines (and I'm a christmas/easter time girl!), but I wasn't expecting it to be that busy. We went last summer in August right before DD's school started and I think that had helped with the crowds.

Overall, we had a great trip! Loved getting my Disney fix in. It was DD's first time to Universal and she agreed it just could not compare to Disney's magic.

Just sayin....

NM you crack me up.

Hey all..
Quick question...
Are standard (non CL) water views at YC possibly of the quiet pool? Or is it a safe bet that they'd be of SAB or the Lagoon?

Thanks!

Glad to hear you are feeling better! Chasing down neurological issues can be frustrating. Glad to hear you have some quality time coming up in your happy place!

Sounds completely normal to me! I am going to pick up a premier pass myself in DLR for a four day weekend in advance of our 12 day trip to WDW in December. DD won't be 3 until the second trip so we only need one. Trying to figure out if we can BB in the spring to get the most out of the pass... It's not crazy, it's Disney math!

We're in Northern California too, near Sacramento! Hi, neighbor. Thanks for the support. I agree, it's the smart thing to do to get our money's worth. LOL
