    I swore I replied to this, but I guess it didn't go through... :headache:

    That's so cool that you're doing a cruise to the Bahamas too! I've never been, but it looks awesome. No matter what, it's still a cruise, right? Soooo much food!

    And the surprise trip to AKL Villas sounds awesome too! You have to tell me how they are after you get back, they looked amazing, and I'd love to rent points and go.... maybe in a few years. :wizard:

    Just in case you miss it on the other thread...you guys are welcome to join us for the Safari GG if you'd like. It's probably sold out but I have two seats that won't be filled. My sister and her friend have a different date now and wont be there on the 27th. I'd have to change them to your name and info....it's gonna be F U N ! ! !

    I was reading back through you PTR...you have to show us the Axl pics. :lmao:

    I love the shirts you made...those are really cute. Those envelopes are fun too but I do not allow those people in my room! EVER! :goodvibes Pop is the best value. I've stayed all over and it's one of my favorites!

    Awww, I wish I could... but that's the night we're doing Fantasmic, and we don't have two extra TS credits.. Darn my planning to use every single one! :sad2:

    As a consolation (or at least something for you to laugh at), here are the Axl pictures.

    So today was a gorgeous day up here, and my family decided to visit Lou at work. He got us all free tickets onto the boat (saving us over 100$ - :woohoo:)
    and we had an awesome time!

    [​IMG]

    We all got SOAKED too - we sat in the back, in the "Wet Zone"... Here's the family before:
    [​IMG]

    Here's Lou working:

    Here's pictures after the soaking:

    I thought this was a really cute picture of my brother and Lou:

    And here's one of everyone:

    Here's the boat:

    And here's the scrapbook version that I made of it:

    I saw you in the free dining thread... your signature line quote caught my attention - my daughter has autism - and it brought a smile to my face. :flower3:

    You've spurred me into making my own pre-trip report for August, my family is staying at the Pop one week before you, August 15th to the 25th. :yay:

    Aww, I'm glad you smiled - it makes most people cry! Did I mention my brother has autism? I forget.... but yes, that's why I have the quote in my signature.

    I'm glad you're making a pre-trip report, I'll read it! Just send a link my way and I'll hop onboard! Only 2 more months for you!!! :dance3:


    NEE - Thank you! The great thing is that for once, I'm actually in the photos!!!! (Can't wait for Photopass...)


    Goofy- I'm glad you were able to get an ADR - did you just make it, or did you make it 90 days out? The one Coral Reef reservation I have is for 8:45, which is going to be a pain... but I'm a little worried, because it says that the Coral Reef's hours are only until 8 or 8:30..... I hope our reservation is okay.

    Yes! I did just make it! Maybe coral reef is open later because of free dining? I know last year chef mickeys added lunch because of free dining so you should be fine!!:thumbsup2Also I have 2 nephews that are autistic one is 2 1/2 and the other is 8 soon to be 9. It can be very challenging at times! the older one has it a more severe form than the younger they are not related though! The 2 1/2 yr old is my oldest sister's son Colin and the older one Wyatt(8) is my husband's brother's youngest child. You hear of autism so much more frequently these days.

    OK, I admit it... I was smiling with tears in my eyes. I clearly remember my daughters first word at the tender age of four. Our family was playing in the bouncy balls section of Burger King and at the count of three, we would toss her into the balls. On a particular toss, the three of us counted, "one, two...." and held back. My daughter said, ever so quietly "three" and was rewarded with the biggest freaking cheer you will ever hear in a fast food play section and a hearty toss into the balls!

    By the way, I love the mousekeeping envelopes and will have a great time with the kids choosing which ones to use. I love finding stuff like that. :thumbsup2

    Hi!!! How's everything going? Now that everything is almost wholly planned, there's not much to talk about! I bought some shorts for Florida today, since I needed more that fit.. I gave a lot to my sister last summer.

    There's only 75 days left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Everything here has been a lil crazy! The weather has been really crappy! Stress at work with all these budget issues since I work for the state and the new budget needs to be approved the very begining of July if not there maybe more days w/o pay! and DD and Ds are closing in on the end of the crazy school year! DD has had Finals all week so I've bbeen on her tail to get to bed early to make sure she gets enough sleep! She has one final left tommorrow world cultures which really is meaning less since she already has an A! and then mon is a half a day to make up for the snow day they missed! Crazy! I can't wait only a lil over 2 months and it will def be needed! :)

    Aww, thank you! Glad you came over! Are we in any groups together? I can't remember... (I'll check my list after I eat). And I love going in November, I'm jealous!

    Oo, I need to do that... I've heard you should bring your own conditioner and shampoo. We're going to go on a shopping spree the weekend before, I think. Poptarts, shampoo, ponchos, etc. I already have a bag out in my room, and as I buy things, I put them in, so that they're all in one place and I don't lose & double-buy anything. :thumbsup2


    Now, I must make the announcement: we're going to do the Magic Kingdom Dessert Buffet the first night we get there! I'm so excited for this. Lou said he'd pay for us, which is very nice. But it still has to go on my credit card for now, so I'm going to wait until a little later in the week, to hear reviews from people.

    I also have changed some of my dining reservation hours - I will update them later.

    We're almost at the 2-month mark!!!!!! :scared1:

    I know the 2 month mark is creeping up!!! :woohoo: I purchased some Tanks tonight online! In between DISING and CLEANING and LAUNDRY:lmao: I've heard about that Dessert thing I can't wait to hear some reviews! What hours did you have that you changed them? Were they too early? Mine are thesame just did away with one GG because we all went back to reg dining instead of deluxe! But even still I have I think 3 2 TS credit meals and I'm keeping them! They are things you don't always get to experience and Tip is included so it works! :thumbsup2 We're doing the Safari GG and the Epcot International Celebration GG and we're all doing HDDMR on the same night we did the last show 9:30pm because you get upgraded to tier 1 seating! So we'll be doing a late lunch that day! I really can't wait for August! My DD and DS are excited to then I remind them that when we return from vaca only a few short days later they return to school! Then they were like ohh well we can wait! LOL!
