    Welcome!!! :welcome: Where are you staying? And I'm glad you joined. I'll add you to the first post by tomorrow morning (I'm on borrowed time right now. lol).

    Running in the marathon!....I am so jealous. I have just never had that kind of stamina. When I was younger and we had to run the mile in school, I was the kid that walked half of it because of stitches in my side. And ran across the finish almost last if not last. ;)

    Happy planning!!!! (with us, of course)

    DH and I finally settled on dates we will be there 11/22-11/30! We are staying at Bonnet Creek for the first time we are super excited! The reason we are off-site is all Disney's fault really. In 2009 we were booked and happy at Pop, BUT Disney overbooked Pop and we were among the ones that got our choice to move to either SSR or OKW! We choose SSR. It was like we won the lotto! But now we are spoiled for space and we could never afford to pay for the Villa's on property so we got the next best thing for us! Sorry this is long, I am just SUPER excited and we aren't telling anyone even our girls right now. I feel like I am going to burst!! So for right now this is our little secret! :grouphug:

    Lol, I was that kid six months ago!:rotfl: I used to say I would only run if I were being chased by a porcelain doll, or maybe a clown. :joker: But, after giving it a shot, I'm hooked! And we're staying at POR. :thumbsup2

    Welcome to all the newbies for November. A few of you have sent PMs about joining the FB. I either found you (if you sent your name) and sent you a friend request or send you the link to me. You have to accept my friend request to join the group, as it is a private group (some people are having surprise trips, so this will keep it a surprise)

    Once you accept the friend request then I can add you to the group.

    You can add us to the list of November (into Dec) trips as well. We are booked at the CSR for 11/29-12/5. If Disney releases a promo such as free dining or a room discount we will change the CSR for either the Poly or our favorite resort, WL. It's been way too long for us and can't wait. :hyper:

    Wow!!! So many new people (and those updating me on their info)!!! It's so exciting!!! :woohoo:

    Well, I have been extremely busy between wrestling and the new "job". You wouldn't believe it, but the payroll/hr person decided that I was there to replace her and just decided not to come in anymore. LOL I can't believe that....especially since that is so far from reality. However, I have stepped up in the consulting gig and took over payroll, plus packed up all her personal items, plus am handling a lot of things (like a Bureau of Labor Statistics census) that she just left lying around. Would you believe I found a DOL census that she was supposed to complete in May 2011 and never did?!? UGH Just annoys me.

    Anyway.....been busy, busy, busy. But I am happy we are all moving along with our planning.

    As for RVinMomma, I won't be there during Thanksgiving to eat at Trails End, so I can't comment on that. But, I have to admit, I think I'm really looking forward to eating at T-Rex. (that is, if free dining comes out)

    My family of 4 is hoping to check into either POFQ or POR on the 14th and check out on the 24th. These days might flucuate a bit depending on Disney discounts and flights, but it will definitely be around then.

    My girls (6 and 8) dont have school on either Friday the 15th or Friday the 22nd so we can go for 10 days and only miss 4 days of 1st grade/4th grade.

    What points?!? Did I miss something? *slaps forehead* I always miss something!!! :rotfl:

    I would love to have my dad and grandfather at least come for a day at Disney, but I don't think that will happen. Unfortunately, my dad and I never seem to be able to take vacation time at the same time. And my stepmom is just awesome! She would love to see her grandchildren in Disney.

    I'll pencil you in at either POFQ or POR and you can just let me know when you narrow it down. We've stayed at POR the last two trips and we just love it. So quaint and quiet. The food court is awesome!!!! I can't wait to actually walk over to POFQ this trip. There's so many little things I want to do this trip.....

    Hi All!! It's been awhile since I've been on the boards, but excited to be back and start planning with everyone! Question, we are trying to make our reservations and need opinions. We got quoted for a room only w AAA Discount from outside agent and we have also gotten AAA quote on package w tix/DP but its a lot and was told by them the only way to save $ would be to get DP. My parents don't eat much and I'm not sure i want to be boggled down w reservations w my two little ones, 4 (will be almost 5 when we go) and a 2 y/o and so I feel we don't really need DP Unless. It's free of course!! Anyway...do we skip dealing w AAA (haven't been impressed w service) and just get room only w AAA discount?? But if FD comes out can we chg our reservation? Any negatives for room only resse? Any help is greatly appreciated want to get this trip booked!!!!

    I booked with AAA twice. Neither time was a very good experience. Not that it was *bad*, but both times the TA who booked us left in the middle of our booking and getting travel documents. I had to actually go to AAA and bug our agent to add free dining to our reservation in 2010. She insisted, it was not available, which it was. DDP does not necessarily save you any money,unless you get it free, so them giving you false information to begin with might sway me not to use them.

    If you book a room only now through someone else, you would just need to cancel that and make a new package reservation if free dining came available. It sounds like a big hassle, but really it isn't. The only negative is you would have to pay a new downpayment and wait to get reimbursed for your old one. I have read that takes 2 weeks or so.

    mypoints.com. It's one of those sites where you shop at retailers through them to earn points. And reading emails and answering surveys too, I just seem to get the most points shopping.
