It's weird what they latch on to! Though, very grateful I found out about it BEFORE booking BWI... that was our original rezzie for our trip last year until I (shocking, I know) changed it.

SOOO Excited for your trip!!!

Just going down my packing list; cubes have now been thrown in the suitcase. A few last minute things'll have to wait until the night/morning of. I really loathe having to check 2 suitcases but the party creates costume havoc with my minimalist packing preferences. 2 suitcases and a carry-on, backpack, purse; it feels like I'm going on an expedition. At least DME takes care of it from the airport.
WOO HOO!!!! Home stretch!

That is my EXACT issue with AKL. I have been trying to convince myself that distance doesn't matter... but then I picture my little Peanut being so tired and the ease we would have of taking the boat to WL...


~-----------------------------------------------------~
So, this happened today:
DH and I were watching TV and the new commercial for Disney Parks came on. Suddenly, he turns and looks at me.
DH: "I heard you, you know?"
Me: *puzzled* "Heard me?"
DH: "Last night... on the phone. I heard who you were talking to."
Me: *still puzzled* "Umm... who? when?"
DH: *scoffs* "You know! 'Resort reservation.... modify reservation'. I know you called them"
Me: *bemused* "Yes, I did. I wanted to see what they had to offer."
DH: *feigns hurt* "Am I not good enough for you? Can I not offer enough magic for you?"
Me: *pats DH* "Sorry, sweetie - you have no pool or great view options."
DH: "It's always a mouse, isn't it!"

*shakes head* What a nut!

That is my trouble as well. We want to be on the monorail, and CR is $$$. Poly is now out. That leaves us with the Grand.

CR CL is more than GF Sugarloaf but still less than GF RPC if that makes sense.

And since I'm not allowed to book a non-CL trip, I have to take that into consideration.

Morning all

Been busy so only reading and not posting but this came up and my be helpful.

Crazy as it sounds I have a res for 11/8 then 11/9-11/11 at GF I have 2 sets of MB's for me and dh. Then 1/1 at GF then transfer to VGF 1/2-1/5 then just dd and I 1/5-1/8. Yesterday MB's showed up to customize for our 3 January trips.

I actually have 5 colors personally. Not sure why they are doing that

FP+ hasn't shown up yet for those dates but we are annual passholder's and you can see the calendar will let you get FP at 60 days out.

I check everyday and I was so surprised to find the MB's last night. Last time the FP showed up first then MB's.

Have a great day

Ok, it is official. I have left my former agency and signed with a new one! I am VERY happy about this and confident with this decision. It wasn't an easy one, but it ultimately had to happen for my own professional future and for my happiness with where I am.

The magic band thing is crazy, isn't it? Between dh and me, we have 8 bands. He suggested we use them to decorate the Christmas tree.

Sheila, Your timing sounds great! Good to know it worked for you, too, GG. We can't wait to go back there for lunch. We're kinda late lunchers, though. We made a 2:50 reservation, and got a table just behind the window tables. Great view, even there.

Pas, I remember how she took all the challenges she faced (including that awful storm, Sandy) one day at a time. She was a great life teacher. Her sweet posts are so missed.

ginny Love the MB tree idea

If we plan another trip for next year I have decided US PBH or a Studio Villa @ GF

I fell in love with the fountain in the VGF lobby
