    Thank you! I knew that this would be a place for attaboys and pats-on-the-back :thumbsup2

    My DH loves the fact that I am willing to save up for a wonderful vacation (I wasn't always a saver - but he converted me :darth: ) However, given that it will take another year to reach our goal, he does not like having to listen to me talk about the vacation that is over a year away yet.

    isyt - you comment about ADR's got me thinking and talking and DH was like " do you realize you are talking about menu's for places that we can't make reservations in for another 6 months and we won't eat in them for over a year? "

    I tell him planning helps to pass the time. He says to plan quietly :laughing:

    Hopefully, they'll change the DDP back to the old format of '07 and that'll be an added bonus. :yay:

    They say planning is half the fun !!!! Don't forget to sign up for mypoints and you can cash in RainForest giftcards and use them at Yak & Yeti in Animal Kingdom. I just used $75 in gift cards there.
