    WOOHOO after trying every day to move this trip by one stupid day, I was finally able to do it! Since the rates changed I has figured that I would proabably cost me about $40 (if I was lucky and not be subject to the new weekend rates) based on the newweekday rates, but nope she was able to keep my rates in place and just move it the one day :worship: So now the kids will miss 3 days in a row which is what I really wanted! I am so happy :goodvibes
    :goodvibes


    Now to go replan my days and ADR's :eek:

    Glad to hear you made it back safely and enjoyed your time! I am really contemplating switching to either YC or BC but leaning more towards YC. We have stayed at the Poly the past 3 yrs so I'm ready for a change, plus we spent the majority of our time in EPCOT so BC or YC would be perfect!!

    Happy Monday everyone!!! This is my first full week of work since the 2nd week of December, I hope I make it through, LOL.

    Safe travels and have a magical trip!!

    For some reason, when I read your post I thought, "What kind of baking is Grand Floridian baking?" Then my brain returned to my head.:lmao: Hopefully the GF stuff works.

    Sounds like it was a great trip!!

    Your DH needs to rub off on mine. Although mine was really willing to talk about the trip this morning.

    I just wish I knew which week in September to pick for our trip. The date options are...
    1. Sept 3 - 6 (or 7th): We would check in the day after Labor day and the DSs would only miss 4 days of school.
    2. Sept 10 - 14: To be there for the special Friday the 13th Villian stuff.
    3. Sept 17 - 21: Talk Like A Pirate Day is on the 19th and I'm thinking this is when they would have their special Pirate Week and the whole family loves pirates. I just hate booking and not knowing for sure if that is the week they are doing it as it is the only reason I would book that date.

    Any thoughts? I'm have to wait until the DH gets home to ask him what he thinks.

    Only two cookies went missing from CL that afternoon. :rolleyes1 :laughing: So, ya all packed now?! :banana: The forecast looked REALLY nice for the upcoming days. Got the appendages crossed it stays that way for you guys. :goodvibes

    Thank you! :hug: That bread looks yummmmmm-o by the way. /drool. You know, seeing the Osborne lights kinda puts us in a bit of a conundrum... Halloween or Osborne Lights?

    Thank you. (I'm a reformed Poly-addict. Keep this a secret so no one hurts me, please. :thumbsup2 ) You'll love either, I swear. Have you stayed at the BC or YC before? After having tried both, I'm not sure I can decide between them... would have to let the discounts dictate which, I think. :laughing:

    We've gone in September the past 3 years. That's tough. For us, since the crowds were kinda a factor... we always went toward the middle-end of September. For me, given what you posted, I'd go for the 13th. Are they doing something special during a MNSSHP that night?! popcorn::

    That brings up some of my own questions...

    Christmas or Halloween? Crowds, discounts, oh my... makes my little brain hurt. :laughing:

    This is why we loved going in September so much: huge hotel discounts and low crowds. And, because we love the pool so much, heat heat and more heat. And, the Halloween Party.

    But then ... this trip happened.

    Why did the Osborne lights have to be soooooooo nice?! :confused3 :love:

    I didn't even think about MNSSHP.

    The Villians thing is at DHS. Here is what was on the Disney Blog about it...
    Unleash the Villains: Friday the 13th in September 2013 is a special day, so Disneyland park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are staying open until the 13th hour (1 a.m.). Maleficent, Captain Hook, Jafar and other Disney Villains host a dance party, complete with limited-edition collectibles and other nighttime mischief.

    However....if they have MNSSHP on Tuesday and Friday nights, like they did September 2012, then the 13th would be a MNSSHP night. That would be such a cool way to spend Friday the 13th. I'm gonna have to dress up again like I did in 2006. I may see if I have my maid of honor dress from my sister's wedding here at the inlaws and go as the Blue Fairy again, or buy a Minnie Mouse costume and get some yellow Converse. Miss, I think you are right. I'm gonna call right now and change the dates.

    Erica! I do, I do, I do want to stay at YC!!! :banana: thanks for the picture!

    Melissa yay for being able to secure the date change you wanted!

    I just woke up.....yeah, taken down mid-day by a darn migraine! :sick:
    It has been awhile since I've had one, and my medication wipes me out. I had to leave work and go to bed. :headache:

    Oh Erica, I meant to say as well, that your hubs sounds like mine (though probably without the British accent ;) ), in that he did our spreadsheet for our April trip, and the last thing on there is "Get on Magical Express and start planning the next trip" :lmao:

    Wookie: That Villians thing sounds so. very. cool! I think they've done the Friday thing for the last two years now so it's probably a safe bet. During our party in September, because it was a washout during the first bit, they had the Villians out walking around instead of doing their Dance Party thing so we got to see Jafar anyway. Shame we didn't get close enough to Maleficent.

    Candace: Bahahaha! Yes, this is apparently where most going-back plans happen? Sorry about the migraine. :hug: All better now, I hope?

    So...

    You know what, ladies? I'm a total and complete DUNDERHEAD... and I'm telling all of you going so you don't make the same mistake we just did. So, I'm not sure if this is just a recent thing and perhaps you already know about this, but I was kinda looking around the room for a BB offer. Never anything left, yadda, yadda. Today, I'm going through the stuff from Disney, trying to file stuff away and I take out the packet/folder they give you at check-in. The folder I never look in? Yeah, that one... the one with the 35% off Room Only Bounceback Offers for most of the rest of 2013. :headache::rolleyes: I can't believe it... :sick:

    The flashing is gone, only a dull headache now, but just in that wiped out stage. I feel exhausted. :guilty:

    Oh well, hopefully after a good nights sleep tonight, I will be back to 100% tomorrow. :)

    I read that somewhere about the bounce backs now being in the packets!! On another thread...didn't think to mention it here. Where did I see that??? :confused:

    Hi Miss! Ok, I am sick for you missing that BB offer! Is there some way you might be able to call and get to use it? Sorry if not....:sad1:

    So we will have to make sure and make time for Fantasmic this trip! Sounds like it is a must do.:). Glad you all had a great trip, and you are making me excited to see Osbourne Lights too!

    Thinking of Sarah tonight ....:angel:

    That's hilarious because I also thought the same thing at first! I guess I have too much Disney on the mind, but really is it ever too much?? :rotfl2:

    Nope, never stayed at either resort! I think it's definitely going to be either the Poly or YC! I love the idea of walking to EPCOT!! One thing I thought of is we can stay at the Poly and then visit the YC to see if we would like to stay there next year. Decisions, decisions...I'm still deciding, lol. popcorn::

    Oh no!!!!! I would be sick at my stomach!! Well, if it makes you feel any better...when we stayed at the Poly September of 2011 we had a BB offer for 40% off the next September. Well......I said the dumbest thing of all times...."let's just wait, I think we'll go elsewhere for vacation next year", yeah right!!! Of course I was ready to go back! Needless to say we ended up with something like 23% off when we could have had 40% off!! Blah! :sick:

    I have done that same thing with the bounce back! Last trip, I decided I was going to just book and I could change it later. But, the dates didn't stretch into fall so I didn't!

    Hello my RC brethren. I think we are going to be in Disney 8/14-8/20. I think we are decided on AoA for one week and Poly CL the second week. But that's all subject to change of course. :rotfl: I make ADRs in 30 days. I have a huge list, but I guess it's ok because we have 14 nights to squeeze them all in. ;)

    Good morning RCer's!! I hope everyone has a great day!! I am going to spend the day with my birthday Monkey at the Sea Life Aquarium. Then I'm going to make him Le Cellier's mushroom risotto for dinner with rosemary pork chops. For dessert, we'll have his chocolate birthday cake that has cookies and cream filling.

    Well, after going back and forth and back and forth and "deciding" on the Beach Club, then "deciding again" on the Yacht Club, we have finally decided and actually booked the GF again!! :banana:

    It's going to be my DH's birthday celebration, so we figured, okay... we're already postponing our trip from 2012 to 2013, so it'll give us more time to save. Well, then Disney Visa dazzled me with a discount, so that was just a wonderful incentive!! So now we're at 144 days to go!! Weeeee!!!!:yay:

    Does this mean I'm going to get kicked off the thread because we decided for sure ? :confused3 Can I still come and visit?
