    We loved Pop, but after the trip last year DH seems to have a mental block about staying there. When we talked about resorts this time he said anywhere but there LOL (Apparently there was a stomach bug going around Disney so we spent a lot of time in the room with sick kiddos) ;)

    First thought would be just call and cancel and get a refund for his ticket price. But, since he is an adult, I can see where it may be worth it to keep his dining. Not sure how they would know he's not there, since the dining would just be a total number they subtract from. Maybe someone else will know for sure??:confused3

    You would simply call Disney and have the child taken off of the reservation and they would credit you the difference.

    That was a great story! Yup, gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes. I was close to my dad too, typical daddy's little girl. The memories I have with him are ones I cherish every day. Thank you for sharing that :)

    We have definitely had good luck with the All Star buses, but we always travel in the off season. Also, they have more dedicated buses for each All Star resort than they used to. The possibility of occasionally "sharing" a bus has not deterred us from staying at the All Stars and I think Movies will always be our kids sentimental favorite :-)

    Well they certainly cost as much as a support group...I can remember when a four day trip for two was $800 with tickets and dining plan.

    Oh I can just see you sitting in the office sobbing, and everyone else thinking "what a strange person".

    And once again I must ask...what have I started?

    That is one way for sure - but don't you get penalized (as in a change fee) if your package amount is less than what was originally booked if less than 45 days out? I was thinking we could just keep his ticket since he will still be a disney adult when we go back for Spring Break in 2014. It would be nice to have one ticket already paid for on our return. Would his ticket still have his child (disney adult) dining credits that could be used in April if the original reservation was for September?

    Thank you Black562 for sharing your story, and yes, you've got me bawling too! At the risk of starting more waterworks on this thread, I'll share my dad story:

    My family came from meager means, but my father was determined that he was going to bring his family at least ONCE to WDW before we all grew up, despite the cost. He felt the Disney magic and pixie dust was something we must experience before we all went our separate ways into adulthood. So in 1989, he took out a loan from the bank (borrowed against the house! :eek:), and we all went on our one and only family trip to Disney World. I was 17, my brother was 14. It truly was a special, once-in-a-lifetime trip for us. We had lots of laughs and made lots of memories. Then my dad, like yours, also tragically died in a (car) accident in 1999. Fast forward to 2007, when my DH and I brought our 3 little ones to WDW. It was awesome, yet bittersweet, being my 1st time back since '89. Now I'm happy to say we're going again in December with the kiddos, and we're bringing my mom along! She's 68 and it's been almost 25 years since that family trip. It's going to be very special to relive some of those memories with her at WDW again! I know we'll both be laughing and crying on "It's A Small World"; my DH will think we're crazy, but we know better-all those inside jokes from 23 years ago! ;) Like another poster said earlier, no one take away those Disney memories and magic!!! :littleangel:pixiedust:
