BEST part is Doc and Sofia were there (complete with character wrangler and we got pics with both so one less MUST do for Sept!!! DD would love to see again but not a do or die situation now... just E&A to knock out.

*HUGS* and happy changing!

My friend didn't think her daughter was safe there, so she tried to get her out. Long story short, she was in court today trying to get her daughter back. Luckily, they did, and they are seeking help for her at another facility. I have been stressed both by being left alone with a house full of kids (with no help) and trying to be supportive of my friend. I can't wait for the next 25 days to fly by so we can be on our way to DL. It's some much needed family time.

On the good news, my fil's birthday was on the 15th. We took him to a Texas Rangers baseball game as his gift and had a great time. Especially since the Rangers won!!
Sorry to hear about your friend's daughter, and a house full of kidlets Less than a month until DL

Thanks RC buddies!

Hi Janet, Once I get the list sort of finalized, I will post it.
I can't remember if I gave our fall trip dates to the Great Keeper of the List.
Oct 24-Nov3. BWI.

Now I need to go downstairs and figure out something for dinner... Hope some inspiration hits me.

Krystal, my vote is Poly SV / WL CL split. Like the idea of CL the second half of the trip ....I think we tend to have more energy at the start of a trip, so hit the parks early and often and relax more the second part of the trip.

Does it matter that the first part of the trip would be over 4th of July, so watching fireworks from either CL lounge or Poly beach? :-)

Forgive me, forgot what scenario we are working with okay, so would you arrive on the 4th? Still like having CL second half. How about DTD and TS, either at Poly or GF to watch wishes? Although that 4th of July weekend is sure to be busy....

Yes, it matters...remember where that construction is Krystal right by the Hawaii building. You can still look straight out to the castle, but sit in the lounge and look at all the construction. No thank you, not this girl. There's something very special about fireworks from the beach as opposed to being indoors...IMO

I did it - I am all registered for the full Marathon!

Trying now to decide if we want to do AKL for that trip. I know my husband would love a Savannah & he really loves AK, but it's a lot of riding buses. I guess since he's supporting me, I should do something for him!

Has anyone stayed in AKL for Marathon weekend? Wondering how that is for getting around (esp to the race at 3:30 AM)!

I promised I wouldn't obsess over the hotel for the Jan trip - so I have to do it secretly on here with you all!

I've never done Marathon weekend, but I LOVE AKL. I think the buses will be just fine The tradeoff...animals!!!

That stinks. Maybe you can grab lunch there? The friend I am going with in September didn't want to eat there, so I haven't had to try and get an ADR there since this last September. I was really surprised I was able to get an ADR on the night of MNSSHP.

I would love to be on a balcony over looking that view with a nice glass of wine right now.

Love it!! I would love to get one just like that when I am in WDW in September.

Sounds like it's time to crack open that pink bottle of Duck Commander wine I have in the frig.

WOO HOO!! I have never gone for Marathon weekend, so I'm not sure how that changes the transportation at the AKL. As far as normal transportation, we didn't have any trouble with it when we were there in September. I just love the resort!! It's definitely tied with the WL as my favorite resort. The first thing I did every morning was walk out onto the balcony to see which animals were out. Then as my DH and DSs were getting dressed, I would sit on the balcony watching the animals and taking pictures.

Thanks. She really is a great girl. I just found out today that she has been purging. I should have known she was doing something since she only weighs 95 lbs.
