    I like the bright side :cool1: I keep talking about this thread to my family, they think I've lost my mind, but I told them about Teena!! I said (and it's a long way off) that maybe we will get to meet her too when we are there!!!

    :cheer2: Yeah for kids who are understanding, you are blessed!!! Now, may your DH make it home and your family will be complete once again!!

    I am truly so sorry that your family is going through this!!!

    On the bright side................you could contact a writer and have a book written??? Sell it as a "Suspense Novel, Disney Style" Think of all the future Disney Vacation funds you could make from it!!! Just kidding, hoping to crack a smile out of you in such a crazy situation.

    I do hope the rest of your vacation time runs smoothly.

    Well my friends,
    DH is in the air, kids are back to excited and I called the YC CL folks to inform them of our late arrival. I happened to ask if our room had been assigned and they said YES, that we were placed in a lagoon pool view room with 2 queen beds and day bed.
    Now - correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that a bit of pixie dust?
    I paid for a garden view room ::yes::
    Also, I had requested a day bed and that wish has been granted!

    Must be all that pixie dust you folks have been sending our way :thumbsup2

    Yay!!!! :cool1:

    I can't believe the emotional roller coaster you've been on. Far more intense that Expedition Everest.


    Double Yay!!!! Yay!!!! pixiedust:

    So once you get on the road, you have such a great room to look forward to and a wonderful relaxing vacation ahead.

    So glad to hear everything is starting to move forward and you will be enjoying your fun in the sun soon. :goodvibes

    Take your husband out for a grey goose slushie, or a stop at La Cava. He's going to need a drink after all he's gone through!

    Have a great trip!

    We are so excited because we are planning the best Disney trip ever!! I've always wanted to have extra time to enjoy the parks without exhausting myself and it looks like this year will be that trip. We are going with a friend for 8 days at Port Orleans Riverside, then my daughter and I are taking the 4 day cruise (our first cruise!), then we will be spending 5 nights at the Beach Club! I can hardly stand the wait!! I love reading this board and I look forward to hearing all about your trips.

    Hi! booking yc cl for next week. What gets better results, emailing the ipo your room requests or calling the regular disney phone number and having them add them? TIA I love YC CL and hope Shakira is there again!:cool1:

    I'm contemplating whether or not it really matters to go with garden view or not. I'm booked in a standard room at the BC right now for our split stay in May. Going Deluxe is a HUGE splurge already which is why I only did a standard room. It's only $40 more for Garden View, but I'm finding I keep saying that about everything and am afraid of it all adding up at the end.

    For those who have stayed both standard and garden view, did it really matter? Was the view from a standard room that terrible? Or did GV really enhance the experience?

    This is a really big trip for us and we are doing lots of things we normally don't, like the deluxe resort, and signing up for extras like the pirate cruise and pirates league and I'm hoping to have a specialty cake done up for dinner one night, etc. My usually very frugal self is starting to freak out-lol. :scared: I almost panicked and went back to staying moderate but I've calmed down now.

    So, what do you think? Is GV going to add to the magic?

    TIA
    Heather

    Teena is back on shore, and headed home. Hopefully she is getting her balance back after 14 days on the ship, but if you meet her in the next day or two and she seems unusally wobbly, you know why!

    I'm headed out now, but when I get home, I'll post the pictures she sent to me and some of her comments about the cruise.

    Yeah, what she said... and if Teena thinks she is at Pop Century while at work this weekend then just humor her until she completes the mental check in process after returning to shore.

    No more Chateaubriand, Caribbean pretzel bread or a big something chocolate delicious for her! It's back to the low life for Teena, peanut butter and jelly crackers and good old Florida tap water, yum, yum, yum! :faint:

    We have stayed both standard view and garden view. The garden views that we have gotten have been the side facing the trees along the Epcot side of the resort. I like that view because it is relaxing and a great shortcut to Epcot.

    We had a standard view room of the courtyard that faced the villas which was fine. We didn't have a balcony in that room so there really wasn't any reason to look outside.

    The other standard view room was a view of the parking lot above a huge flat roof. It would have been better if it was a higher floor because it almost felt like you were sitting on the roof. The nice part about that room is that it had a full balcony and it was very quiet over there. You couldn't hear any traffic or buses. And it was very private. No one was walking by looking up at you, which you often get in the garden view rooms.

    We have always booked either a standard view or a garden view and have gotten free upgrades many times. One time we got a junior suite!
