    Yes you do have to use the park ticket before you can get a FP with it.

    Thank you, I was hoping I could get over there and get FP for sometime later (since they go quickly anyways) and let DD and grandma chill and go closer to out lunch time

    ‘Morning all…

    [vent]
    Going to be an interesting few days… my immediate manager resigned and we now have about ten or fewer days to transfer all that knowledge and processing responsibilities on to two or there other people (being as they don’t plan to bring in any one else to fill the spot). This will be the fifth time I’ve had to take on more work and almost certainly mark the fifth time that extra responsibility and requirement came with no extra compensation.
    :faint:

    Don’t know why I’m complaining, no one here has received so much as a cost of living adjustment since 2007.
    [/vent]


    Now then, as I was sayin…
    ‘Morning all…


    Good to hear.
    May the rest of the trip be even more enjoyable. :thumbsup2



    Nights like that make for very long days.
    Get some caffeine in ya’ and keep moving.
    :surfweb:


    And a happy birthday to Ryan.
    It’s good to see you with a little extra time to spend around here again.
    :goodvibes




    Now I suspect I’d best be getting back to work.
    There’s much to figure out.
    Y'all enjoy the day.

    Morning Gents.

    My team had a great soccer win last night. We needed the win to secure the 4th and final playoff spot so we went out and demolished the 2nd place team 7-2.

    Today I am staying home with DS as they have no school because of a PD day that DW was awfully excited to be attending.:rotfl2:

    Tonight I leave for a conference for a couple of days in my hometown. I wonder if I can avoid the family :rotfl2:

    Have a great day all and Happy birthday Ryan.

    Gotta validate the ticket before using the fastpasses. This is one reason I am intrigued by the fastpass plus thing. Have fun regardless!


    Well that just sucks...I hate this workplace trend, to get people to do more jobs rather then hire someone else. It'd be nice at least for you to get a raise...

    Happy Birthday Ryan!

    Hey guys! Aaron posted this up on FB... and thought I'd pass it along here. Southwest is having a 40% off sale today for dates in the DDC Convention timeframe. I just saved over $200 by booking today!

    Hope this helps someone else too!! :cool1:

    Happy Birthday Ryan.

    We stopped at Poly yesterday for Captain Cooks. Tried to PM you.

    Still loading pics. Photobucket is stinking like some type of bucket.

    Congrats on win and stay at home day.

    They absolutely are the best. We had our usually seat over on the bridge to Tomorrowland.

    Thanks Don for all the work. Good luck Randall.

    I use Tango when I am out of town with family and really like it.

    Well, it's Tuesday morning and I'm still trying to recover from the weekend. And no, Andy, the Packers blowing a 21-3 lead wasn't the worst part. (But it was a nice little salt in the wound)

    I had planned to take the van into the shop on Saturday morning because it was leaking coolant from a place that I didn't want to try to have to reach to fix by myself. Turns out that problem was a small hole in the radiator. The bigger problem was badly corroded coolant lines that supply heat to the back of the passenger compartment. The shop told me that Mazda issued a recall on this for states that put salt on the roads in the winter (Hello Wisconsin!). We bought it used, and I'm sure Mazda sent a post card to the original owner who promptly threw it away. The kicker is that, that recall expired in 2010 and we were on the hook for $900 for some dealer-only parts to get it fixed. Has anyone ever heard of recalls expiring? :mad:

    The bigger issue was when we woke up on Saturday the house was cold, and the furnace was blowing cold air. I couldn't get it running, so I called a service guy. We knew when we bought this house 10 years ago that we were on borrowed time with that furnace, and it chose this weekend to kick the bucket. $3200 for a new one. :headache:

    Then, to top it all off, our mainframe system at work decided to freak out Sunday night and lose connection to half of it's disks. So I had to deal with all of that mess Sunday evening and all day yesterday.

    I could really use a Dole Whip about now.

    Bright Side - I was able to use that 40% at Southwest to book some sweet airfare for the DDC! :woohoo:

    That bites! I have never heard of a recall expiring, I would contact Mazda itself and complain. Sometimes this helps get back some of the cost if not all. Are there no after-market parts they can use? I just had a Chrysler dealer tell me that I needed about $2000 in parts and labour on my truck. had a friend get me the parts and a private mechanic do the work and it cost me less than $500.
