    Alright, let's see if this works... I put together a little slideshow. Just click on his face if you want to see it. (That also brings you to the actual photos so you could just click through those too) :)

    I know, I was annoyed at that, but I couldn't figure out how to slow it down..

    That's a good plan... that's what I was going to do if I hadn't gotten mine.

    Also, I need to remember to call Disney about the Magical Express today... I forgot to yesterday.

    I called my TA this morning to ask her about our Magical Express stuff and she says, "hold on I'll check your file". She's chitchatting about how she's leaving for Disney herself tomorrow (good thing I called her today!) and then she says, "oh here it is, it arrived last week" ........ :headache:

    Hello!? One needs to know about Mickey Mail the instant it arrives!!!

    Uhm, I booked online, so I got a packet with my vouchers (arcade, Planet Hollywood, Sea Raycer, etc), the luggage tags, a little breakdown of everything that we get with a Magic Your Way Package with Dining, and receipts (at least, I think it's a receipt).

    It has a picture of Mickey and a surprised little boy on the front, I can take a photo and show you if you want?

    So everyone remember when I said this? Well, my wish has been granted!!!! :wizard:

    I was over Lou's house this morning, to watch the shows "Wipeout!" and "I Survived a Japanese Gameshow" (he Tivos them because I only have basic cable and no tivo for when I miss shows). And after that, we were going to go shopping. But first, he was hungry, which turned out to be wondeful, because that meant I checked my email.

    AND I HAD A PIN CODE FOR A FREE UPGRADE TO A DELUXE VILLA RESORT!

    Of course, I didn't have my reservation number on me, so after I stopped dancing around his house, his mother drove us to my house, where I grabbed all my information and was on hold as we drove to the store to go shopping. Right before we went in the store, I was taken off of hold, so I had to stay outside and arrange everything.

    We had the option of Saratoga Springs or Old Key West, and after looking at things, Lou decided on Saratoga Springs (I let him pick, and he chose the one I liked more, which is good). So I told her which resort we wanted, and then she asked me if I wanted a 1 bedroom villa or a studio. Now, in the email, the only option was a studio, so I was momentarily struck dumb. I asked her which one she would recommend, and she said the "1 bedroom, of course." So I was like "Ok!" Later, after looking at it, I was really glad I went with that one - it's amazing!

    However, I didn't tell Lou about the upgrade from studio to 1 bedroom. He still thinks we got a studio. That's going to be the big surprise, because he found out about the cake. He doesn't know what it's going to look like, just that I'm getting one. He found a note in my calendar that said "Call for C. for 1900", and I guess he was able to piece everything together... because he snooped! :headache:

    But this surprise is so much better, I've been doing a very good job of being upset about the fact that other people got 1 bedrooms ("because they must have called before us!!!! :sad1:") and that we got a studio. Although I told him that the studio is still amazing.

    I also fixed my Magical Express stuff while I was on the phone. However, I haven't received my confirmation email, but everything is right on the Disney Website when I check "My Disney Vacation".


    This is an amazing surprise, just a little over one month before we leave!
    ..I need to go find out information about Saratoga now! :cloud9:
