    I had and am still having issues! I switched from ASMu to CSR a while back and the girl said the ME tags had not been mailed. When I got them, they still said ASMu. I called and was told to just use a black marker to block out the resort name and they would go by the bar code.

    Now, I just added a day. I did the room before the flight. The first CM I talked to said I needed to call back with flight info to talk to ME and to them. She gave me the 800 number to ME but said that I need to update it through them too so it may be easier to just call them (they could talk to ME for me). When I called back, the ME updated it in their system but did not talk to ME. I asked him if I should call and he said it should automatically update. I asked about my tags since it says the wrong date and the wrong hotel now for the way home. He said I could talk to the new hotel when I check in. Does this sound right or should I call back? I don't want to wait until last minute and then have a whole ordeal that keeps us from our last day's festivities!!

    TIA!! :goodvibes

    We could start a FB group and post our trip photos and all to it. I post on another thread and we are all close and we have a FB group for sharing things we don't feel belong on the boards.

    Hello follow August goers/obvious heat lovers! :wave2:

    Just found this new thread. The old one seemed like fun but I always felt like I was too late to join in (nothing to do with anyone else, just my own weird insecurities about popping in to conversations, lol). I'm just gonna jump into this one and hope I can keep up! ;)

    My dates: 8/25 - 8/30

    My resort: Coronado Springs

    My ADRs:
    8/25: Wishes Dessert Party
    8/26: LeCellier Steakhouse, 5:30pm
    8/27: Cinderella's Royal Table, 8:30am
    8/28: Kona, 8am
    8/28: Liberty Tree Tavern, 5:30pm
    8/29: Crystal Palace, 8:30am
    8/29: Tutto Italia, 6:30pm

    Other than when we have ADRs, our schedule is pretty much up in the air. After years of going commando style and planning every single minute we have decided to kind of leave a little of it open enough to go with the flow.

    I seriously cannot wait for this trip! One of my closest friends is joining my mom and I this year. For the past twenty something years/trips it has just been my mom and I. So this year is going to have a bit of a different feel and dynamic to it. But I am sure it is going to be great!

    As far as ringtones go: Mine is Good Life by oneRepublic which has made me think of Disney World since they started using it in their commercials (and did an adorable video for it set at MK).

    I asked this on the transportation board but didn't get a response...do you think 5:30am is early enough for a 7:50am flight from LGA for 3 seasoned travelers who are traveling light? We're leaving from Tribeca, using Dial7 and flying JetBlue

    I suppose I could ask my my SO but he's been so super busy with work and negotiating 2 job offers :cool1: so we've had so many things to talk about other than Disney! And being in a temporarily long distance relationship,-we live 150 miles apart- we don't have as much talking time as we'd like. We'll be on vacation together in 12 days though and have oodles of time to talk about our next vacation...and other minor stuff, like finding a bigger apartment if he takes job #1 or moving across the country if he takes job #2! It's almost enough to distract me from my Disney planning. Almost. ;)

    Congrats on all the exciting stuff going on!!! I like to leave 3 hours before my flight. That's my rule of thumb and has never done me wrong. LGA is a smaller airport, so I don't know how their security works. It may run slower because they will have less TSA staff, or quicker because there will be less passengers going through security. You should be fin, but I would probably leave at 5 just because I have OCD about being early and we also like to eat breakfast in the airport.

    Seriously, I cannot get enough of that song or that video! Thanks to that video and the Disney ad campaign that song went from just being one of my favorites to one of those songs that makes me think of Disney and get all choked up. So for me it is the perfect ring tone. Takes me to my happy place every time my phone rings.

    And as for the heat: The friend that is going with me has been to WDW several times already, but never in August. She was a little concerned that the OMG HOT LIKE FIRE heat + the OMG it's like breathing in soup humidity would be hard to handle. But once I explained how crowds are so much lighter then when she usually goes and that the heat just gives us a better excuse for mid-day naps and/or pool time she seemed to warm up to the idea. I'm hoping that she jumps on the August bandwagon by the end of the trip.

    I love that video too!
    oneRepublic is such a fun band.
    I am a singer (Starr is my real name tho :) from Phila. and we played with oneRepublic at the National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony show in DC this past December. :) The best part of the entire event was meeting KERMIT tho' - I am still excited about that one, LOVE THE FROG!!! The First Family didn't even excite me as much as the frog. (sorry mr president LOL)
    Here's us backstage with Kermit before the show... http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2205737593910&set=t.534309337&type=1
    And here's oneRepublic meeting Kermit, too :) http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2213935118843&set=a.2213925998615.2099855.1561507828&type=3

    I too, am not looking forward to the Aug. heat, but think we just had a good preview these past several weeks. POFQ pool get ready, cause here we come! YAY!

    QOTD #1: No TA. I booked myself, I have never ued a TA, don't think I could give up control....:I always book on my own...it is so easy! I love being able to make a change whenever I decide the mood strikes....which is every few days! The TA would not like me for 2 reasons: I will be annoying and I will know more than them:)

    QOTD #2: I have no ringtones :( I need to fgure out how to get some on my iPhone, I am technologically challenged....lol I have no ringtones but I may be upgrading to an iPhone next month...no use trying now to have to figure it out all over again next month! Where's a teenager when you need one!
