Usually before holiday weekends they run the 4x specials. I think so ppl are more likely to grocery shop there and get gift cards and then get their gas. Pretty smart thinking! !!

People always tell me I have an accent but I don't hear it. Whenever I say I'm from Jersey, people think everyone from Jersey is from @ NYC. Now they have an accent!

As close as I am to NJ growing up only 10 mins across the bridge, I will never get it. South Jersey is actually the middle of the state, they don't have to pump their own gas, and anything in Cape May County may as well be it's own state. (disclaimer: my twin sister lives in W. Cape May)

My grocery store does fuel perks as well, and I used gift cards to pay for my trip, but can't get myself to buy them to us at WDW. Cause if you lose it you're done, that's it your money is gone. Where as if you do room charging if you lose your KTTW you can get a new one and no money is lost. You know? Ugh, I just hate to miss out on those fuel perks. :/

One family has yet to book. When the trip comes up the adults get testy, mean, snarky, and generally unpleasant. SO when free dining came out we instructed our TA to move us to a moderate if price was comparable to get the discount. This decision was made with myself (the Disney nut) and the other two families who have booked.

Fastforward to today when dh had to inform other brother we did make the switch to secure discount. The brother knew it was a possibility prior too and my dh tried calling and texting him Saturday when changes happened. His brother didnt answer.

The 3 families are going and doing just Disney. The other brothers family is planning on stopping at mammoth cave KY, doing sea world for a day, universal for a day and then meeting us at Disney. So obviously cost isn't their issue!

But the brother freaked out on my dh and is just being nasty about the whole trip. I am worried about tuem ruining the trip...

Whew feel a bit better at just saying it all. Any ideas? They've got their daughter excited about going but we've stressed since day one its a big expense no one needs to do it if they aren't wanting too....
Sounds to me like they were very well informed of all of your plans. I would not worry about it or them if you can help it. Just my 2 cents.... :-)

OK - I travel with my family often. It is very hard when people have different ideas and styles. I suggest being very straight forward and put it all out there.

I would say that it seems that your choices have make the person uncomfortable, and that all you want to do is have fun. Suggest that they make the plans that are best for his/her family and you can all meet up when it works for all involved. Maybe suggest a few dining opportunities that include all - but that people can decide to be part of if they want. The message that you want everyone to be happy and have fun can be heard and then they can do what they will. Control is hard when there are many cooks in the kitchen...no matter how great the people are who are involved.

When I have done this in the past, it seems, everyone ends up doing the same thing but once they choose it rather than feeling they must, things go more smoothly.

Good luck!

I know! Here's the best though....

If you are from south of Trenton, more than likely you root for Philly teams...

North of Trenton, NY teams.....

Sadly....the only population that seems to root for our very own Jersey Devils are the ones in the Pine Barrens.

Funniest thing...as a newlywed living in GA...I pulled into a 'Smile' gas right off I-20 and sat there....waiting for someone to come pump my gas. Someone finally said to me...you gotta pump it yourself....I had no clue how to do it!

I know; I grew up in NE Philly and never understood this either!

Did you get your dates? Saw you were looking for POR too.

LOL. I grew up in Philadelphia so at least I know how to pump gas. Albeit I'm a little out of practice now.

What are your dates for FD and where?

Yes, I did get the dates I wanted! It sounds like almost everyone that was persistent enough got what they wanted. Have you seen more families of 5 looking for POR in the past couple days?

Now, I have a lot of ADR's to adjust, which, at this point, means I will have to call everyday to get for the times I want. Of course I probably won't get to do that anyway until the kids go back to school....is it the 26th yet?

I got free dining! (Actually, on the first but it took me a while to find time to post here.) I am sooooo excited. I'm going to arrive on Oct 29th (from California), stay near Universal for three nights and do two days there, then on Nov 1st it's over to Pop for eleven nights!!! And, I got tickets to the Halloween party on Nov 1st and the Christmas party on Nov 8th. Wahoo!!!! (Did I mention I'm excited.)

I can't remember, are you north or south of Trenton?
I don't think my sister from Cape May knows how to pump gas....seriously. I think when she was up here recently visiting and needed gas, my other sister pumped it for her!

I saw a bunch of postings on thread #2 for families of 5 that wanted POR. It was a make or break deal for us if we wanted to stay onsite. We had two rooms at ASMu booked which was almost $1500 more!
