And, that's supposed to be the high for tomorrow! Good thing we packed all our winter weather accoutrements; I was decked out in my wool beret, gloves and scarf on the walk over to POFQ. (I might freeze to death when we return to the frozen tundra.) Book the cruise, Dani... book eeeet. I'm so far behind there's no hope for me to catch up but I'll do my best once we're back in Chitown. to all you gals.
Yes, 47 is still considerably warmer than the snowy, cold Illinois flatlands! :-) I believe today was one of the coldest in history up there in Chitown. glad you missed it! Safe travels on your return trip!

So they have a handful of GF rooms at the great rate left...do I snag one just in case? Or do I not worry about it since there's a good chance I won't be able to use it?

Hi RCers,
It's another day in what feels like Antarctica. DH had a snow day yesterday, so that was nice.
It's bitter cold today, and quite windy.
Sending stay warm wishes to all the friends that are dealing with this miserable cold.
I spent most of last night and today dealing with some frozen pipes. Fun, fun, fun!

Miss-Sure wish the weather was warmer for you. Hope you're having some yummy dinners. Enjoy your extra days!

Pas-I am hopelessly behind, but love your change!

Jenny-I know what you mean about BWI. We stay other places, and then we always return. It's like home to us.

Janet-Glad you've got some warmer weather headed your way.


Time for me to go back upstairs and check the pipes, hugs to all the friends!

RCers rarely discourage reservations....
Do you think there's a pretty good chance you'll be able to go? If so, you might want to book.

Need help...

This past weekend, DH mentioned how much fun he had on our F&W solo trip last October and how he wished we could finagle another trip like that this year. Well, let's just say that I found out today that I have a R/O offer that covers quite a few dates this year including the last two weeks in October . Sooooo... I priced out 3 options for 5 day stays:
1. CSR, business class, 30% off
2. CR, Garden wing, std vw or garden vw, 35% off
3. Beach Club, garden vw, 35%

The dilemma:
CSR would be the "practical" choice as it is $368 cheaper than CR std view and about $460 cheaper than garden view at either deluxe. BUT if we do end up at CSR then we would definitely rent a car as I hate depending just on buses so I'd be looking at roughly $200 for the car thus closing the savings gap some. The BC location is ideal for F&W and it is close to HS but we since we've stayed there a few times already, wouldn't mind trying CR, just not sure if we'll like the Garden Wing bldg. WWYD???

Hi Ginny! yes the BW was so nice, but alas finances and a possible second 2014 vacation is motivating me to keep our costs down and stick with POR. I will not switch, I will not switch!!

Oh I think I would do BC if I were you. So close to Epcot and easy access for stumbling back to your resort. If you had have stayed there then you know you like it right??

BTW jealous of your adults only trip!

Whoa, DL?! Oooooooo. Jeanette, can't wait to hear all about the plans!

Hope all of you guys are staying warm up yonder. Poor Marie has the absolute worst of it.

Deena, I promise, it'll warm up as soon as we leave.

Jen: Seriously, I'd be tempted to stay... except we miss our pupster.

Miss M (very reluctantly, I might add, due to extreme shyness) was picked as a boat captain this afternoon on Living with the Land. Here's her fancy new hat:

Somewhat random question...if you could have only 3 days and the fast pass rules now, would you do PH or no PH? How would you spend those 3 days? (Which parks)
