    Heres is a fast run down about us ..
    Let’s see where do I start …
    [​IMG]
    My hubby Jason and I have been married for going on 9 years in May, we are both Disney NUTS. from our Disney honeymoon to us moving to the orlando area & living 5 Mins from Walt Disney World for 5 1/2 years. along the way we had two Great kids. James & Alexis !! They love Disney just as much as we do. James’ 1st trip to Disney world was at 6 months old & Alexis’ was only 4/5 weeks old when she started going. Back then we would go aleast once a week because we had APs tickets, With us living only 5 mins away, we had it made back then , But we have moved back home to GA, Now we take a trip to orlando aleast once a year, Because we miss disney so much.

    Loving page one!!! Since you crazy plan like me I was wondering if you keep the binders. (I make one for every trip and they are slowly consuming my house.) :rotfl2: Anyway, WDW.com now has the menus in PDF online. Sidney printed all of these for me and I stuck them in the planning binder. That one has all of my resort maps, menus, and stuff you'd plan with inside. I LOVE it! I used to depend on AllEars for those menus but Disney outdid themselves this time. They don't have every single menu but most are on there. We upgraded to deluxe this time (meaning 39 table service meals!) I want to try out a bunch of different places.

    You don't want to do a Pirate room over at CBR? I wonder what they did to those bathrooms? They didn't redo the Nemo bathrooms! The place they could have done so much with the theme and they skipped it! :confused3 The kids are going to love those pools. The old one was just refurbed and the new one rocks!

    Can you make me a new one of those stick families for 2009? I wish I could find the one you made me from 2008. I'd like to put it in my book.

    Can't wait to see the plans! :thumbsup2

    Hey girl thanks for join me here.. No i don't make binders, I should but i don't , Yep i'm a big planner.. I plan everything about our disney trip..
    We don't really want to do the pirate rooms Mostly due to where they are at.. plus the kids love nemo... and the pool area looks like a little water park from the photos.. so the kids are going to love it ..
    I think i still have your stick family from 2008 . i'll get it off my other computer. and yes i will make you a 2009 one.
    thanks again for coming along for the ride on my pre trip report...

    I bought a big huge pack of them at Costco or Sams...can't remember now. One of them, Costco I think has a pack of 250 sheet protectors for like $11. I have to go get me some more! It's $4 for 50 at WM. :yay::woohoo: I hope you still have it!

    Make sure when you get there to take your ticket off the "package". Do this at one of the guest services in the park. All you need is your ID's and from there they do your AP's. You probably know that already but just in case. :goodvibes I'm so happy things will work out. Now we'll be hanging out a lot more often! Wanna go the same time next May? If there's a bounceback this time I am so going to do it again! Probably the first 10 days it's offered. Then Christmas in 2010 again.

    Don't do that. I don't want the kids names on Dis. Email it, k? Sidney wants to go this May. The only two definite trips paid on right now are the two weeks in August/September and the 7 nights in November/December. We hope to make that one a 10 day if they offer a nice AP rate. The code I had was only good for seven nights. Your ADR's look good.

    September AND December???? You LUCKY girl, can I come back with you?!

    Looks like a good list of ADR's, but what do I know...lol! This as I have said will be my first time onsite and first ddp so ADR's are new to me. It is proving to be quite a daunting task to try and figure it all out.

    Can't wait for more.
