Hi step, my Royal predecessor! It is so funny you mention CR. I actually called my TA to change to BLT this morning but I miscalculated the total so it was a wee bit more than I wanted to spend The Poly I wouldn't advise right now. You all loved YC so it's always a choice right? AKL is really amazing, and as far as I am concerned you can't go wrong with any of the Universal resorts Things may open up in the 30 day window and they will And is tomorrow the 30 day dance????

LOVE WL!

The most magical milkshake

WOOHOO!!! Fingers crossed that he does well next weekend.

Another

Kook Disappeared from my multi-quote.... Not to get emotional, but this RC thread is making my day! I love the YC upgrade, but I am aggravated by a less than magical check-in for you. How nice of you to switch rooms at WL. I can't believe the family wanted cookie delivery...However, judging from past interactions with CL CMs they would totally do it IMO. You are WL Royalty through and through Sad about Randy, but it sounds like it's a change he will be happy with. And it's great to see you home!!!!!(here) And you were first on page to on the last thread or my TR...
Jeanette have you ever stayed at BLT? It is on my bucket list. I agree AKL is fantastic, it even met picky Bob's approval.

I was going to try to multi-quote but there were just too many and I am feeling lazy this morning.

Hope everyone has a terrific day today!

Morning all!

Hope you are all having a fab weekend. I promise to be more than just a pop in here on the new thread....so nice to see everyone stopping in! Kook that is a wonderful pic you posted of SAB! No changes report here.

Even though we are not doing many table service for our family trip, the kiddos requested we book Sci-fi for lunch on our HS day. So now we are reserved at Sci-fi and Via Napoli. Yummy.....Sangria!

Hugs to all

Jen

I haven't even posted any of this yet to the WL thread, but since this is the RC thread, I can tell all of you that after our upcoming Christmas trip, which was booked as a special "thank-you" bounceback of sorts by the GSO, DH plans to RC to CR/BLV if Randy isn't managing the OFC. Stay tuned.
An RCer hubby, I think it's awesome! But the lure of OFC, can you resist.... That BLV is SO pretty!!!

Been running around all weekend but tomorrow is a quick trip to Six Flags so that my brand new one year old can splash around and soak up some attention!

to all!
Have a wonderful day!

No I haven't and I have always wanted too. If it was included in the discounts we would SO be there!

Hello, everybody!

As promised, I am checking out the new thread as soon as we got home from our weekend getaway. It's so good to see everyone again.

While we were out of town this weekend, I (of course) found a Disney outlet store within an hour of our hotel. Stocked up on some new shirts for Reid and a couple of things for myself. But, it just made me even more anxious for our upcoming trip. 90 days from today we'll be arriving in WDW!! These are the resorts we have booked:

10/4: POFQ
10/5 - 10/11: SSR (1 bedroom villa)

So excited!

Kook! I haven't been around in months ...quite honestly, it had been over three years since my last trip and I am sure you can imagine the toll that takes on a former AP holder (of many years). Missed you all but the DIS was making me sad.

The trip with Sophia was rather last minute - we stayed at an offsite condo (first time offsite in 30+ years!) because we took our pups along. The condo was so close that we pulled out and were parked within 10 mins. Most of the drive was on Disney property...but that first morning, parking and paying (!!) made me teary for sure. Drove down for just four nights - what a trip with a 5 1/2 yr and two pups! Next time we go for a week or not at all! (Want to plan for a January trip but dread staying offsite again.)

Sophia had been to the MK twice with her mom and dad so this was not her first time visiting. It was wonderful to see it through her eyes...see her excitement, hear her giggles. Yep, pretty magical! We had dinner at WCC as we thought it might be fun for her (my first time at WCC!). She and DD LOVED WL- dinner was just okay. Apparently our waitress was not having one of her better days.

Headed over to Polynesian so I could see what was going on at "home". What a mess! Sophia and DD walked around outside just enough for Sophia to fall in love with the resort - guess it runs in the family.

It will be awhile before we'll be able to stay onsite again because we will not board our pups and have no one to puppy sit. Yep, the fur family takes a WDW vacation as well! :yes:: Definitely prefer onsite but that is all we have ever known.

Looking forward to lots of pictures from your trip - love the upgrades!

Awww....thank you!! It feels good to be back!

I most certainly have purchased my MNSSHP tickets! We're going October 5th. In fact, I already have the costumes for myself and Ed completed. I just need a few more things for Reid's but it's pieces that he may grow out of so I'm waiting until September to purchase those.

ick, I am so sorry. I'll keep my fingers crossed y'all don't have any more unforeseen expenses.

Hey, there, my CA friend!
With as many people that travel with fur-babies, you would think Disney would build a resort for people wanting to travel that way.

We had a good weekend. The DH and I saw Deliver Us From Evil and then took the boys to see Transformers today. I'm such a dork that I still get teary eyed when I see Optimus and Bubble Bee.

I am too tired for multi quote too

We have stayed at BLT 3times. 2 times in a 1bdm and once in a 2bdm.

We loved the space and modern feeling and most especially the extra bathrooms

Let me know if any specific questions. We would definitely stay again.

good morning to everybody else!

*Pop Century with free dining
*Back to Universal hotel
*Back toPop with upgraded free dining

*Universal Hard Rock 2 nights with WL courtyard free dining 6 nights
*AoA Cars suite with 2 nights Hard Rock

Great a new thread and I love the new title .... : ) I'm actually not sure I posted my most current changes on the last thread? So there's my sign I've switched things around to much! Animal kingdom lodge club level November 9 - 19 & November 19 - 22 at grand Floridian RP club level. I shouldn't even write these words BUT I think I'm all set and happy : )
We just got back for Las Vegas a few days ago and so fun to play some slots with free drinks and with our comps we got our room free only paying for the resort fee so that was nice. Also new is we have a trip booked for Disneyland July 21 for 10 days and will be taking our twin grandsons who just turned 14 yrs old a few weeks ago. Will spend 4 days at Disneyland and California adventure, then an evening at an Angel's baseball game and 1 day at universal studios, a beach day and dinner at the beach as well as visiting with family for a few days. ( so easy to go to Disneyland planning wise which is good or I'd be changing things around I'm sure there too )

Hoping all you resort changers had a great Fourth of July holiday weekend and have a great new week ahead ... Any ongoing trips or soon to be trips for anyone coming up?

BLT looks awesome! And it is available for my dates, I just can't justify to DH or myself the extra 2500 bucks to change to there...if only it was included in the RO offers
