Hi Everyone! Welcome to our new home.
Tomar: So sorry about Nana. I pray that you get there in time. 2009 does not seem to be the best of years so far. I hope things will turn around soon. Just so much bad news.
EE22: Thanks for starting the new thread. I guess we finally got some attention! When did we start the last one, 2005 or 2006? Either case we have been running for a couple of years now. Nice how we have all remained friends through it all.
I think since 2006, but I'm not sure.
My adrs went great again this morning. No issues. The numbers are long...12 now, but giving them out at the end really does seem to go faster.
I hope everyone had a good day.
Tomar...you know your Disney buddies are saying prayers for you.
EE22: I am glad you got everything you wanted. So I guess they changed the process. I started looking into what we want but waiting for those park hours still. I guess I have to wait until May 1. My hardest to pick is Epcot. Try something new or go with the favorates. I want to try new things but everyone wants lots of steak. Not too many options but I guess Tepan Edo and Le Cellier work. I have to find some other locations with steak on the kids menu. My kids won't eat mac and cheese and chicken nuggets get old fast.
Tomar - I am so sorry to read about your mom Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Sending that you are able to arrive in time to see your mom
EE22 - Congrats on the ADRs We are leaning towards going in Aug for DS's birthday (need a melting hot smiliey) . This is during free dining so I need to figure out the dates of our trip and make a plan to be ready to call in to get the ADRs. We've had good luck in prior years during July but this is our 1st Aug - free dining time frame trip
Thanks for asking about me wreck I am getting better every day, the trip to the ER - not so much fun.... I'm just thankful I wasn't hurt to bad. Lucky really compared to what could have happened
Not sure about the kids menu - but the steak on the adults menu at Coral Reef is excellent. Actually my favorite steak in the parks
Minnie...glad to see you are getting better.
TP2...I'm not very good with Epcot either. Le Cellier can be tricky, but I think if you are open to lunch or dinner times you'll do okay.
Don't forget about some of the places at the BC and YC for steak.
Once the May hours come out we can put our heads together for days to hit each park.
Hi everyone. I was surprised to see the thread closed but glad a new one was started.
I went back and looked at the other thread. It was started by TP2 on 5-4-06.
Well things are difficult here these days. Work is so stressful and I feel I am falling into depression. I don't feel well (my stomach is not handling the stress well) and I don't feel like doing anything. I want to sleep all the time but I am not sleeping well.
I am sure eveyone can relate.
Tomar - I pray you get to see your dear mom before she passes. It can be hard because you want them to hang on but I am sure you also don't want her to suffer. I will include you and your family in our prayers daily.
With FIL - I was sorry he passed while we were away but it was better since he had started to suffer and I did not want that for him. I still don't feel like we have dealt with it yet.
Otherwise, Happy Easter everyone.
Can't believe we got closed down. When I saw my emails / notifications thought we did something wrong, or where contraversal. But we are just long winded.
Tomar Good luck with your flight. So so sorry. Thinking of you and your family.
EE22, Thanks for the notice. Congrat's on your adr's. You are right about the steak at YC / BC. **** if you don't want to dress up >> eat in the "bar" next to yachtman's [is a little cheaper too] >> you get the same meat.***** We actually prefer it. More casual and friendly, not stuffy.
TP2, You might get lucky, but we where very NOT impressed with Canada this last time. Bug, has put her foot down and said that's it. They are off our list now.
Candi, sounds like post traumatic stress disorders. You made it through the hard part and then your left with depression and residual of what you are all going through. Grandpa, work lay offs and work stress, etc... .. All adds up and can come down on you quickly. Plus, the physical stress of travel on top of it. Get some rest, eat good, and try to relax. If it keeps getting worse, call your doctor. Hope your feeling better soon. I had this, after our hospital became open shop union > then some RN's went out on strike for 3 months. During our busy season. It was a terrible, hard time & alot to go through. The whole town was divided. Plus, the added stress of working. I did ok, at the time of the strike > then afterward, the same thing. I was tired, irritable, sleepy, no energy, emotional, ... . It took a while to clear up. But, it was a daily thing to deal with, and try to get over.
I called and did our adr's this am. That is an ordeal. I got up 1 hour early 4:45am > washed, dressed for work, and ready to go. At our 6am, I called immediately & was "on hold" for 10 minutes. Then got through and got everything we wanted. I didn't want anything hard except, the gardenview tea, and chef de france.
Anyone want to do a July pool, for ap rates? I am guessing 2nd week in may.
MKY - you are probably right. I am trying to deal with it and see if it works itself out. I know if I go to the doctors it will be antidepressants he will prescribe and I would rather not but I will if necessary.
I just wish I could turn to liquor but I am way too strict for that. I have two rules. If you "need" a drink - don't and no drinking alone.
I was also a little worried about Bug when we met up with you. I think the stress of trying to get into meet us set off her attach and I felt really bad about that. If I had only known we would have met up at your hotel.
Maybe Tomar and I will need a trip to Disney to recover. I just hope it all works out okay. Hang in there.
Candi...hope you are feeling better and can rest soon.
MKY!! Good deal on the adrs.
DD and I are doing the tea too. I went for 2:00. I think I'm going to just order some sweets ala cart because of my allergies and DD can get what she wants. Too many things I cannot eat so I will pick a few.
AP rates...someone rumored 4/20. That's not a good day
it is payday, but it's also national *** smoking day, anniversary of Columbine, and senior skip day. Didn't know if I could post the green stuff word...green when it grows...not idea in the form people use.
I'm going with 2nd week of May with you...history repeats itself although someone said they are 2-3 weeks ahead of norms. However, I think they are packed and the 4/3 deal sold a lot of rooms.
TP2: May 1st hours should be out
mky...I did the same thing. I got up at 5 am...took a shower and had my Cheerios and coffee...eating away by 6 am so I could leave for work right away afterwards. I didn't know how long it would take. The first part took a bit longer than the second bunch. I was able to do the second half our of split stay too all at once.
Candi, Bug's asthma had not settled down from the winter, and then we had just gotten into that weather for 1 day, she had not adjusted. Any weather changes and it sets her off for a while. We thought it might of been the cleaning stuff in the food court?, or the pool chemicals, sometimes just being near alot of chlorine sets her off to. She needs to carry her inhaler more. But, she did 2 treatments that night and was more settled in after about 2 days. No problem after that. One nite in august last year, the air was very heavy and humid, the fireworks set me off and could not breathe by time we got to the CR. Comes out of nowhere. You never know.
I so hope you like the tea. It is a fun and relaxing thing. Kinda different. Hopefully, the crowd there will be good. Sometimes they are a bit stuffy but we just ignore it and have fun. Remember, all teas are available in "ice tea" versions. i love the sandwiches have her try them. They are very good about allergies, etc... and always ask there. For Monday the 13th we got GF's cafe after 5pm. We thought about narcoosee's or the buffet, but like the cafe. Its a short trip for us, so we are just doing our favorites, nothing new.
Hope everyone has a better week. mky
DL11 and I will secretly make fun of the stuff shirts if we have too. She and I are also doing the Cafe for breakfast. We have that before the Keys to the Kingdom Tour. She is so excited. Maybe since she's 16 this year. I'm old....
13th...we are doing the buffet at Park Fare and then WISHES ON THE BEACHI think there may be some friends there that eveing
248 till we are done again
Hi Everyone. Hope all is well. Seems like there has been so much bad news lately.
Tomar There is not much else to say. You are in my thoughts daily.
Candi and Minnie: Hope you guys are both getting on. Minnie: I also thought you were a wreck, not that you were in an accident. How awful. I hope you are doing better.
EE22: I hope you have good news. I can't take much else.
We had to change our dates once again. I am starting to feel like we will never get to Disney again. I was trying to leave on Sunday the 16th but the flights are a fortune to travel on a Sunday so I switched to Tuesday. So now we are leaving on the 18th of August instead of the 16th. With only buying 3 tickets it was a difference of over $500. Now on a Tuesday I can purchase all 5 tickets, save our credit card miles, and still save a couple of dollars.
EE22, Your right, we are once again zipping along. New thread no problem. I was a good sister, and even let the bug know we got restarted.
Tp2, Hmmmm, I am so sorry. I know you have been waiting like crazy. But, knowing you >> you can offer up your over booked seats and get free tix for your next trip? Or, did you guys consider driving? Would you get any extra time doing that? Driving down is not bad at all >> its the coming back part that is torture. But, we are once again considering for October. It would be so nice to have our "own" car there. I hate worrying about rentals etc... . From here: if we leave right after work 4pm should get to wdw at about 1pm if straight thru or after 6pm if stops. flying arrive anytime the next day. We are flying in july after i get off of work which will be an 8pm flight and with time change 12am landing? That makes for a long nite. But, coming home it is soooooooooooooo much nicer to get on a plane & car ride home.
Driving home, your already tired and certainly not excited about going home. But we usually set up to stop and get home with a couple of days rest at home. It will cut out up to 4 wdw days. We usually toss the idea around and then wind up flying.
Tomar, Thinking of you. Hope your doing ok.
minnie, hope your feeling better soon. You have had a rough couple of years now.
Well, I can give some good news finally. Had my repeat upper endoscopy today and ulcer free [for now anyway] Yesterday, was mom & dad's 59th wedding anniv. That is a long time. We went out to dinner. Mom, was pretty good yesterday.
Hope everyone, is enjoying there thursday, mky
MKY: Wow!!! 59 Years!!! I will be married 13 and that seems long. 59 is a lifetime, that is for sure.
So happy you had good news from the doctor. Finally something good. Maybe this is the turnaround.
I have considered driving for a couple of reasons. After DD got sick 2 years ago I felt so trapped. If we had our own car we could have gone home at any time instead of staying there. Also, we would not have had to put her on the flight. Not to mention all the germs traveling on the plane. Plus we would have our car when we got there. Problem is DD10 gets car sick so not sure how 20 hours would work out. Maybe give her something to sleep. Plus DH thinks I am insane to even think about that long of a car ride with 3 kids. I look at it as an adventure. And I know you are right about the way down being easy and the way home being torture. That is always the way for us. The farthest we usually go is 10 hours. I was thinking of stopping midway in both directions. I would need to get DH onboard. Right now he is not there.
