    We had a very similar situation last fall. My DH didn't know if he could go until very close to the trip - an we were celebrating our 10th anniverary!
    I totally sympathize HalloweenNut. I know first hand how stressful this is. I hope everything works out and your whole family gets to enjoy your vacation together!

    'Ello Love! :love:

    You? Change resorts? LOL!!! You are going to have a great time, I'm so jealous you are going so soon. I've got months to wait still. Be sure and take Lapu Lapu pics, and leave me a spork! ;-)

    Carl, your Poly pics always brighten up my day.

    We booked so early that it seems like our trip will never be here! At least there is only 41 more days until I can make our ADR's:thumbsup2

    Halloweenut, I hope everything works out so your whole family can be together in WDW.

    My DD15 keeps saying she would rather stay home than go, such blasphemy! She needs to get in the Disney spirit. I want this to be a family vacation. After this trip, if she still wants out of future trips I will give her a pass.

    Thank you very much!! They brighten my day every day! We even loaded some as our screensaver on apple tv! :rotfl2: really I posted that last one because it was slow on here and I love to hear what is going on at the poly!

    I noticed you have a DD15 and you said she would rather stay home. :sad: get her on dis, let her read my DD17 Pre-trip and trip reports. Maybe let her take a friend with her. Disney is something all my teens look forward to. I offer them the opportunity to get involved in the planning. Show them videos on YouTube and offer them their freedom to go to a park on their own. (with cell check-ins every hour or so) if this is her first trip she may think its all about the dumbo ride and knows nothing about the pool, the resort, the massive droves of other teens, and all the French fries!! :rotfl2: NO ONE IS TOO OLD OR TOO COOL FOR DISNEY! My teens become full fledge 9 year olds the minute our driver shows up at the door for our trip to the airport!

    :cool1: Just gearing up for trip.....have really enjoyed following everyone's conversations here - it's nice how you all seem like "family"...:wizard:

    It's been years since we stayed at the Poly - can't wait to get back - this trip is just us two - looking forward to relaxation and trying some (or all) of the drinks at the pool bar:rotfl2:

    Keep the pics coming and I'll keep dreaming......I tried to look back and see who else is going to be at the Poly the first week of May - I'd love to share a toast with other poly peeps:grouphug:

    Can someone re-post the recipe for the evening punch in the CL lounge? I clicked the link on page 1, but I can't read the font, it's too small.

    My daughter and I did a little happy dance last night. This will be our third Poly stay since Sept 2010, but our first stay CL. We're ridiculously excited.

    There will, however, be no more tanning bed tanning before our trips for me. I had three spots taken and biopsied yesterday, with more biopsies to come later next month. :-( I abused my skin too much when I was younger. If I want to spin this positively, however, I guess I can use the need for shade as a fantastic excuse to rent a cabana! LOL How's that for lemons into lemonade! :cool1:
