We called reservation, booked YC with AP discount and hoped on ME with no wait it was awesome.
An extended stay - that's pixie dust!

I had a nice walk around world showcase and had Fish and Chips in England for lunch followed by about 4 hour at SAB! Dinner tonight was at Flying Fish and I highly recommend the diver scallops mm mm mmmm! I am now laying in a chair on the beach watching illuminations while the movie is playing! Perfect end to a great first day!

For those who asked about water a few days ago. The market sells 1 gal containers for $2.95 they also have 1.5 liters for $3.95.

If anyone wants to know anything let me know I'll be glad to help if I can.

Movie time!

So sorry for your friends' loss. Kudos to you for turning it into a fabulous solo trip!

Nannette, thanks for answering my questions! Glad to hear there's not much concern for TS Chantal. I forgot you said you were at BCV. Enjoy your fridge!

Have fun at your tour tomorrow! If you're interested (and still at WDW), I'm doing the Undiscovered FutureWorld tour next Thursday morning by myself while the kids are at their Y.E.S. class with DH. Would you care to join me? This offer is also open to anyone reading this! I might even be able to get you the tour at half off.....and it looks like a fun tour. Feel free to join me!

I have an admission to make.....I'm a Disney Store CM. I'm really excited about the possibility of getting Magic Bands for our trip! I'll keep you guys posted if we get them or not when we check-in on Saturday.

Any advice, Ninja?
This is a toughie! Can you talk him into thinking that a solo or girls only trip would be good for you? That way you can get him thinking that the expense would just be for 1 person.

To explain your absence you can just tell the kids you are running away from home because they won't pick up their clothes or they are leaving dishes around the house. After a couple of days with you being gone, the little wheels inside their heads will start to turn and they might actually believe that unless they stop making a mess you won't be coming back.

On the day that you return, you will call them and tell them that if they learn to do laundry and keep their rooms clean you'll come home. By this point they will be desperate and totally sick of frozen Pizza or kibble from Pet Smart or what ever it is that your husband has been feeding them and they'll be desperate for your return.

Now if your husband is one of those guys who works all the time and is allergic to child care you can drop the kids off for the week at your local Fire Station. They have laws on the books that state that all unwanted children can be turned in at the fire station with out penalty. Usually this applies to babies but they never did put an age limit on that law and when things get a little hairy with the boys here at home I have been known to throw them (AND my Husband!) in the car and do a drive by of the fire station and mention that all they would get to eat would be beans and chilli for the rest of their lives because that's all they serve at the fire station. This is usually enough to stop the bickering until one of them Googles "abandoned children and fire stations" and the jig is up on my end.

OH NOES!!! I'm gone for 18 hours and the interwebs blows up with this fridge debacle! At first I thought they were replacing the fridges with those new beverage coolers like they put in the Values. These beverage coolers don't have "freezer" compartments (Har, Har like that area ever got cold enough in the old fridges!) The fridges from the days of yore had those freezers and thus they were much less energy efficient.

Now I'm getting the sense that the fridges are failing because they are cooped up in those cabinets and they don't have the proper clearances etc for proper thermal exchange. I know when we were in POFQ last Feb 2 out of three rooms had new fridges/beverage coolers that were not getting cold.

So this brings me to the critical question:

WHAT WOULD NINJA MOM DO (WWNMD)

I'm going to have to get creative with this one folks (Shocker!!!)
First I'd take all those ponchos we are buying and fill them with ice. Then I'd drag them to the room and toss 'em in the tub. Think of it this way.... you now have a GIANT fridge but you are out one shower. BUT you can shower in the locker room at the Fitness center! (Yeah, like that will be attractive! I can just see the thundering herds with bed head and morning breath forming the conga line on their way to the fitness center in the morning to shower).

I'd bet that they might be handing out those dollar store styrofoam coolers for people who need a place to keep their stuff cool and advising them to use the ice machines. That's just my guess though.

You are darn tooten* on that one! I'm also going to buy up all the ponchos and then leave my "No Fridge" tips on the budget board to start a run on the market!
(*Tooten = Fire house chilli reference!)

Dave, when you posted on that fridge thread about how them removing the fridges was part of limited time magic and that next week they were removing the air conditioners I laughed so hard and for so long I couldn't catch my breath!

Yes but what will the children eat????
Or are you using the cookies as bribes, oops I mean "behavioral modification tools"? I have always found that you can bribe teachers with chocolate, especially around report card time! During those Parent conference meetings when things start to go south you just whip out a batch of chocolate chip cookies or one of those giant Hershey bars and all is forgiven! Those teachers have a hard time remembering things when their eyes are rolling back in their heads and they start to drool over that chocolate. That's the best time to rip up those police reports and make those changes in the grade books.....

Drum roll.....

I'm registered for the Princess Half Marathon!!!!

I'm excited, scared, freaking out, but mostly very happy. Lots of training to do to get ready, but I've got lots of lead time (8 months). I'm also going on my own - very tough decision. DH and I agreed that having the kids there would make it tough to get the rest I'll need pre and post race, so a solo trip it is. Never thought I'd do Disney without the family! There is a chance that one of my best friends may join me. And if she is, I may consider getting a room at BC. I just can't justify it on my own, especially when we'll have just been there in October, but if it's split two ways...? That might work. It honestly would be so nice to be able to walk back for a restful afternoon at BC after the race is done. If my legs will be able to carry me there by then. :D

K... off to bed if I can quash the excitement enough to fall asleep...
Congrats! Let us know if you and your friend do ending up booking the BC

I have always thought about staying here but with the kids and my mom, it is easier to stay at CR. DH isn't really a Disney fan...GASP! I know! But I thought with just the two of us doing more adult things, this resort is the perfect choice! This thread and the pic thread really helped clinch the deal!

We will be checking in August 15th!!! SO excited!


I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list on Page 1



Please let us know if you have any questions.

There are only a handful of YC CL GV rooms. Most have a view of the wedding gazebo (lovely) and possibly a sideways glance of water. The other room(s) overlook the YC back entrance courtyard (lakeside)

Don't think you can go wrong with any of the rooms in this booking category.

Happy Anniversary!

Yup, another teacher lurking here, anxiously awaiting my BC trip - 10/10 to 10/14 - and really enjoying this thread and its predecessor. While everyone here seems really nice, I especially have to send a shoutout to NinjaMom! You are completely hysterical in the most awesome way. I totally admire your child-management techniques, and wish more of my students' parents were like you...it'd make my job a lot more fun some days. :grin:

Thanks for all the info (and laughs) everyone!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.

Doing the single digit dance!!!!!! 9 days until I can smile for a whole week! I will say it is most definitely needed. If anyone is around July 24-27, feel free to stop by and say hi! I'll be the one in the blue Nike swim trunks sitting alongside SAB with a margarita in one hand and my nephew in the other!
