I live in my flip flops . I keep them handy all year just in case we get a warm enough day in the winter where I can sneak in a day to wear them .

I can't believe Christmas is just 3 weeks away.....it seems like we just had Christmas and started a new year.....the days/weeks/months are going way too fast . Good luck with your shopping. I'm with you on the winter GF stay in your stocking....can I have one???

Congrats to all who have recently booked stays at the GF. I'm sure you will have a wonderful time.
"Leftovers" is only a dirty word to my kids . . . I think they have been turkeyed out! LOL But it has got me out of cooking a couple nights!

Love that letter to Santa, mariamouse! Alot of us probably sent some good ones Santa's way!
Good Luck with the shopping! Before I started teaching online I used to take a day off from work just to shop during the day when there were less crowds. Now I do the majority of my shopping on-line . . . No crowds there! LOL

It seems like they are making this transition fairly quick. It almost looks like a weekly thing. Keeping my fingers crossed that you still get your gold card!

On a separate topic, I am happy to report that we have canceled our extra back-up Poly reservation as of last night and are now fully committed to the GF for our stay in 1.5 months! We are so excited and just couldn't help feeling that the combination of the Grand being a better cold weather resort and the Poly construction potentially being a burden made the Grand the better choice this time around. Can't believe our trip is so soon!! I'm sure it will be here before we know it with all of the impending holiday craziness!

Hope k&a&c'smom and the rest of the GF FAQ gang are doing great and had a lovely Thanksgiving! You can expect to see quite a bit more of me on here in the coming couple months.
Hope that you and your family had a happy Thanksgiving too Maria... what a cute story..October 32nd..love it! WTG on choosing the GF for your upcoming vacation..I agree it is so nice to visit in the winter..and the spring..summer...the fall...lol...

DS is still waiting for his first choice for college. Got into his second choice. I'm getting ready for Christmas. Just finished putting away Thanksgiving stuff!

Any news on how the new mug system is working at Gasparilla's?
Congrats to your son! Hoping that he gets his first choice too! Bet that air ressies will available soon... No idea about the mugs..but I will be happy to check for you when we are there!

k&a&c'smom Sorry that the kids were not able to be home for the holiday... I am a fan of those no cooking eating left over nites too!

MickeyNut THREE weeks... till Christmas...I don't even want to think about that!! lol... Yet...

DisneyDmbNut Hope that you get your GOLD card!! ( I know thats only yellow...LOL...but actually the "gold" cards really are mostly yellow).. Love the proposal MBs! What a wonderfully Disney way to pop the question!!

PrincessM I think online shopping is whats easiest for most of us these days... I especially like the Disney store online shopping....gives me a bit of a Disney fix..I's sure that you understand!

I bet that the GF is fully decorated now...I can almost smell that gingerbead... I wonder how the VGF is decorated..Inquiring mind here...LOL...

Hope that everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday!

You said a mouthful there - the year just seems to fly by. Thanks about the kids, it was weird without any of them, but we had a nice day.

I do the same thing, keep my flip flops out all year. Even if it isn't all that warm, I wear them out to the garage, when I take the dog out, etc.

Same here, I haven't had to do much cooking until the last couple nights. Leftovers, then turkey tetrazzini, which was then a leftover as we have no kids here to gobble it up.

I agree about the MB transition, I didn't think they were even finished with the test phase. Not keeping up, obviously! lol

Me too......I use any excuse to put those flip flops on .

Count me in the group not keeping up on the MB transition . I guess I'll look into it and see what's going on when I have a trip coming up .

YAY, we will be there at the same time.

We are supposed to arrive Saturday around 1, but the weather here in Dallas is about to drop 40 degrees and unleash freezing rain and sleet

Does anyone know if we need to contact ME or the Grand if our flight is delayed... or canceled

I hope you have a great trip without any flight delays or cancellations . I can't help with your DME question as we've never used it, but hopefully someone will be able to answer about whether or not to contact them in the case of any changes.

Please elaborate as this is nothing I have ever come across when reading LTT reviews


Been there and was great. Family style and great home feeling comfort food

Only 3 weeks, gaaah!!

LOL about finding out when you have a trip coming up - that has been my philosophy, too.

Just 3 days to go. I hope you are able to get out ahead of the bad weather.

If you are delayed by a couple hours, no need to contact anyone unless you want to. If canceled, I would definitely call the resort and they will likely update the arrival time in the system. It shouldn't be an issue either way, as there isn't really a spot reserved for your party, if you know what I mean. And I think the new ME system tracks flights, doesn't it? I know it was much easier when we used it the last time, we didn't have to go to the counter or anything.
