Bouncing Back to the Bayou --- an August 2013 PTR Ok I am just DYING to tell someone, ANYONE, about my plans. I've finished up my TR from 2012 (and within the one month time frame I give myself from returning home) and it's time to start planning again!!! The family thinks we are going to CBR next year. Nah, nah!! I changed it to POR, the Alligator Bayou section and preferred so hopefully building 14 -- that's what I've requested. NONE OF MY FAMILY KNOWS ABOUT THIS AND I'M NOT TELLING THEM UNTIL THE MAGICAL EXPRESS DROPS US OFF!!! My familly and I were all were talking and that seems to be everyone's favorite. I also found out the whole resort has been renovated in 2011 and I looked up the pics. I am paying for preferred as I just don't want the walk we had last time around to the food court. It was WAY TOO FAR to keep refilling the mugs. By the time we walked back to the room from refilling them, they'd be empty again as we were drinking along the way. I am also planning on flying out of Portland, ME this time around, too. Driving to Manchester really wasn't all that fun, especially landing at 9:30pm and still having a 3 hour drive home. UGH. Also, Peter's SW Rapid Rewards can be transferred to Air Tran A+ rewards And Air Tran flies out of Portland. Would you believe we already have enough points for one round trip ticket or two one-way flights?? Peter keeps using that good old Southwest Visa for EVERYTHING! Of course he pays it up every month like a good little boy! I'm hoping he uses it enough for us to earn another flight. I think it's very doable! Yep! And I've already made up a Garden Grocer order!!! That is going to be so convenient for snacks/breakfast type items. I've subbed to the POR Riverside thread and the August 2013 thread, so that's all set. The POR thread suggests to fax my room requests to POR 5 days in advance, so that date is already marked (and the fax already written and saved in my computer) in my calendar as well as the date I can make my ADR's. The one I really want is Be Our Guest at MK. I'm surprised it's only 1 TS credit for dinner and it's considered CS for lunch. So Cool! With the next paycheck I'm planning on purchasing the PhotoPass Plus on the preorder special. It's a $30 savings and the plus is so worth it for all to get all those dinner and ride photos! Yep.....how's that for planning????
