NO PRACTICE? Good thing you took Tyler
I wish you were on this one, Too!
Thanks, having a ressiee just in case is a good idea
Thanks! I had originally wanted to surprise them both, but that didn't work out. Maybe another time....
Hi Sharon! SSR is a nice resort- it gets knocked alot, which is a shame, but to each their own, I guess. Thanks for following my TR!
I'll post that next- I had a very busy PTA couple of days-and of COURSE I am SO GLAD you are here!!
Hi and thank-you! I only used my Canon water camera- only took 15 pics with my DSLR this time- I just wanted to focus on my kids and not carry around the big camera- so I'm glad the pics are ok! But I DID take alot with my smaller camera, so there's LOTS more to come!!
AWESOME!! Thanks for coming along!
Hi Katherina! Thanks for being here!
Yea- this is not a fun week for Pods OR us...but he got SOOOO much done in the past two days, he was able to take last night off and watch the Yankee game. The end is almost here....I can see the light at the end of the tunnel......
As promised, here is ALL the excitement of Tyler's Disney surprise...not exactly that magical of a moment, but what can we expect from a 13 year old boy??
CLICK TO PLAY
Hi Pinkpixie! I would love to try ALL those sammies on that EOS board, but I always have that Original one- just LOVE it!! Thanks for reading along!
I can't believe you never stay on property! It's SOOO much fun- and it makes the whole Disney experience complete- although I know there is a TON of competition out there off property, and some great places can be had. It's just....when you stay at a Disney resort, you are completely submerged in the whole Disney thing. Did you see Kara's response to you? She in the Queen of Upgrades, it's crazy!
We only had one hot day- the day we left. It was cooler the other three days- definitely needed a jacket at night. But what a switch on Thursday!!!
Can't wait to see you!!!
Hi there! Usually, they are- either the week before or after- but this year, with Passover & Easter so late, everything kind of scattered. Breaks are all over the place. My DS16 goes to TCI in Verona, they are off next week. And yes, we are going NJ week, that's when we always go- this year we arrive Nov 9 and leave Nov 14- staying at BCV. Where/when are you going?
Hey Drea!!! Thanks for coming along!!!
That's a good idea- to book it just in case. You ALWAYS have great advice, Katherina!
I love watching those Disney Surprise reactions on Youtube, I always tend to get a little misty-eyed. How cool of a surprise would that be!!!
Boys tend to show their excitement differently though it seems hehe.
He did seem quite surprised and happy to me
That's funny, Ellen! He could hardly contain his excitement!
In reply to your post from "over there", "Mickey's Not So Scar...", we are going to Disney twice this summer. Sarah and I are going from June 26th until July 1st. The class she is attending is "Wild by Nature" and I am really looking forward to it. Sarah is also but she is still unaware of how cool it is going to be. Then we are taking a family trip in August (12-20) to celebrate Rob's birthday (my excuse to get to go again). During the August trip Sarah is signed up for another "YES" class, "Ocean Discoveries". Rob wants to accompany her to that class so I guess I will sleep-in or something.
Enjoying the TR! DH and I spent our honeymoon at SSR back in 08! Ahh the memories..LOL
Tyler was so ecstatic he was speechless Teenage boys. They are all the same! I am so glad he was able to join you, because, you're right, next year the fun starts. The - you can't miss any school until you graduate - fun!
Yeah to the springs! I hoped you liked SSR. I think the furniture needs an update, but I really do love the complex. It's so pretty.
I can't wait to read all about your trip.
My VWL contract finally passed and I made my first reservation for December. We are actually going to take Nick out of school for a couple days, so its basically a 4 day weekend. Better than nothing. Darn school interferes with everything.
yah--what he said...what a great quote!
I love the way his eyes about popped out of his head when you told him
Awww that was cute! He's such a 13 year old boy! But a good 13-year old boy! At least he didn't react like the kid who thought they were going to ****'s house....
My favorite is how excited you were when you told him!
Wow- so you book Disney properties on Expedia and get rates like that?!?!? I'll have to check that out. And then upgraded on top of it! How awesome!!!
I'm still paying for the one time like 5 years ago we got a PIN for pretty much any Deluxe for $199/nt (inc. AKL/Savannah view- which is what Ron wanted) but I overruled him b/c I had always wanted to stay @ the Contemporary..and this was before the reno and it was butt ugly back then. It had scary early 90's looking bright & bold urban patterns on the bedspreads and draperies! Of course no upgrades for us...we had a Garden Wing Parking Lot view willy. LOL!
Hopefully you can rub some of your upgrade luck on us. We've never gotten one, not on land or sea.
Yep, lol. Well, we don't *never* stay on property (that sounds unbelievably grammatically incorrect!)... We have stayed @ the Contemporary (pre-renovation see above ) , CSR (which we loved), and Pop (which we enjoyed but we can't all fit in just one of those rooms anymore...double beds- ick!). I am totally cool with trying out each and every resort. The ones I am most interested in are BC/YC, AKV/Kidani/ of course BLT, and the retroist in me wants to try the Poly since I didn't learn my lesson @ CR. I just have to deal with Mr. I'd-rather-be-on-a-cruise...
Jacket?!?! You silly goose! I've been in shorts since December!
It was horrid hot at DHS last weekend I'm hoping I don't melt in May!!!
Can't wait to see you either!!!! Just a few weeks now, where does time go?
OMG I am cracking up at Tyler's reaction! And then listening to Timmy in the backseat made me laugh even harder!!! I guess I'm sooooo not used to boys, young TEENAGE boys, at that, cause little girls just go nuts!
BTW, what was Tyler looking at in his lap? Was he texting?
Is there two different threads to this or am I crazy?
Hi there! We are going 11/10-11/15, I'm not sure where we are staying yet I've changed my mind several times already. My ds19 attends the Developmental Learning Center in New Providence. We went through the guardianship process it was'nt the easiest thing emotionally speaking, but easier than what we face next year when my ds graduates he will be 20 in June. I have a friend at work who has dvc ownership at SSR and loves it. I added Earl of Sandwich to our list for restaurants in November. I'm looking forward to reading more about your trip. Linda
Love the reaction! Really he was all happy dancing on the inside.
I went home on Sunday, and you were there the next day. I did come back Wednesday though with dh for his convention. we were over at the Ritz again, poor poor me.
I know you had great weather, and the days later, started getting too hot.
