    Gwynne, we sure liked it. But then we are pretty big CR fans. Not everyone is. The CR CL CMs (that's a mouthful!) are pretty darned good IMO. And the size of the room, that view, and the offerings are all fine. I like the both side Tower rooms just fine. It depends entirely on my budget as to which I'd pick for any given trip. , As mentioned already here, you can't go wrong on room choice with that swell CL lounge view.

    We do similar season-based resort choices. :thumbsup2

    Then we can say Howdy Neighbor! [​IMG]

    Glad to hear :goodvibes I hope you guys can swing a trip. The doctor surely would approved ordering a WDW trip for relaxed healing.:wizard:

    We have. ::yes::

    Glad to hear POFQ is emerging as your defendable fave. We are also doing CRT for our next Anniversary trip. DH's idea! :faint: We were walking under the Castle and Dh said, "What's this?" He goes over and chats with the nice Cm at the podium, and he proclaimed it a must-do. Well, if we must!!!:joker:

    :tinker: It REALLY is Disney at it's finest.

    We're planning Cabins for next March. :thumbsup2 I can see DH now in his snazzy racing fire suit revving up the golf cart!!! :lmao: Actually should be more his speed anyway!!! :moped:

    Me too. Love vintage Disney-ana. :lovestruc ...As for tent camping... there's rugged and then there's rugged. ;) I like the "idea" of rugged by staying rugged sounding and rugged looking Resorts. [​IMG]

    Bummer. Hope you feel better soon! :)

    Have fun in So Cal. ...New plans means lots of time to anticipate the Diva trip next year. Fun Fun! :cool1:

    CONGRATS!!! :banana: That's a great idea! Love it! :love:

    Yes, but it was a while ago. We got a good coupon on restau****.com back then and decided to try it. I seem to remember Pluto or Goofy or both. Sorry I'm not much help. The food was fine. Lots of it and lots of variety. And yes there are different night with different themes.

    Sorry I wasn't on here much for a while. What are you doing your schooling in?

    Like I said, signing and dancing on the tables with lampshades on head...:rolleyes1

    :woohoo: Dani, do you have dates?? :goodvibes

    :rotfl: OK, you must get a pix of DH in his souped up golf cart ... Maybe he can add racing stripes (removeable kind) to make it a little more formidable?:teeth:

    Yes, Magic, show us how it's done!! :rotfl2:

    There are a lot that look good over there, and many of them offer a DVC discount. I'd love to try Bluezoo if Brian and I get an evening alone.
    :lmao:
    have a safe flight and a fun trip!
    :thumbsup2
    Cool! The menu looked good, and I want to try something different. The kids love Chef Mickey's but I want something new. Will have to look for coupons too. that will make it even better!

    I love the possible future plans of Magic...itis and Piglets Mommy!!

    Janet-You are too funny!!:rotfl:

    Thanks, Melissa! I contacted the IPO's yesterday. That's usually my tell tale sign that I'm done RCing....at least for this trip. :rotfl2:

    Kook-It is Regatta Club. That is a standing request from dh, unless I just can't make the #'s work. I was moving resorts and dates to make sure we'd get the discount for most of the trip. It's set now. 5 out of 7 nights, Yes! I will hop on the Contemporary thread tomorrow. I have a lot of reading to do! :cool1:


    Wookie, I hope you get to take your San Antonio trip. :goodvibes

    Jen-Were you able to work out the best way to handle this? 2.5% would drive me crazy, too! :headache:

    Have a lovely trip, GG!:goodvibes

    Missout-Love it! You certainly know us well! :rotfl2:

    Pas- Miss you, too! :hug:

    Koh-POFQ is seriously wonderful! It is our favorite mod. THose goofy mask faces in the food court really aren't scary. They just look strange in photography. And then there are those delicious beignets...:thumbsup2

    Haven't tried there. Another possibility- Captain's Grill at YC. It's a nice place, good food.

    Janet-Thanks!! So excited!!:woohoo: About kids-they certainly do. Keeps us moms on our toes. :hug:

    Dani-Yay! :yay:


    Magic
    -Thank you very much! I so appreciate all the suggestions and information from RC friends. :goodvibes

    Can't wait for Idol tonight! I gotta get busy, get those bratwurst cooking.
    Waving hi to all the RC friends! :wave:

    Thank you both. I just made it to class and I think I shouldn't have gotten those chicken nuggets from Chick-fil-A. They are not sitting too well on my tummy. Hopefully, I can make it through class and the hour drive home.


    If I wasn't feeling like something that was ran over by every bus on WDW property, I would so want to be at your house tonight for dinner.

    I hope you are having one as well.

    Sitting besides me in class is a 7 inch Red Velvet Cake Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. Since I have been sick and are in class tonight, I didn't get to make my DH anything for a birthday dinner. His birthday is today. WOO HOO!! We both turned 37 today!! I don't admit being a year older from January 10 - March 11, since he teases me about being older than he is doing that time.

    Our WDW trip is still the same. Tomorrow morning is ADR day. I can start making them at 7 AM, Mickey time right (which would be 6 AM my time).

    On our tax return, I found out there was a hold up. It seems that every return filed before February 26, that had an Education Credit, would ping the IRSs computer system as having missing paperwork, even when all the paperwork was present. The problem was not fixed until March 9. Since we filed ours on February 2, ours was one of the ones with this problem. The IRS didn't start processing ones with Education Credits until February 14th. They are sending the returns to the ones in order of the day they were accepted. Since mine was accepted on day 2 (February 15th), it shouldn't be any longer than 2 weeks (per the lady at H&R Block) for us to get our return. For now, all I can do is check the IRS mobile app for keeping track of your return. It would get us the money in enough time to go to San Antonio (if we get it in the next two weeks) we are just not going to count on making the trip.

    Awww HAPPY BIRTHDAY WOOKIE!:cool1::cool1::cool1:
    It was also my Dad's b-day today too, we just finished up Chinese and cake!:goodvibes

    On a sad note, it is being reported that the 13 year old that was found unconscious in the Pop Century Pool on Sunday has died. So so sad for that family, I cannot even imagine the pain. :sad2:

    Thank you, but technically mine was on January 10th. I just don't admit being a year old until today (the DH's birthday). :lmao: Which reminds me, I need to change the DH's age in my siggy

    That is so sad. My heart truly goes out to the family.

    Just in case my goofy post confused anyone...Idol is tomorrow. I don't know what I was thinking. That's what I get for attempting to multi-task while multi-quoting.

    The story about that 13 year old boy who lost his life is so sad. Prayers for him and his family.

    It really is. My prayers really are with that family and anyone who was at the pool at the time. I know it had to have been hard for anyone there at the time.


    The DH says "thank you". I brought him home a Red Velvet Cake Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. He's not happy with me "for getting him sick on his birthday", but the cake did help an iddy biddy bit.

    I am really excited!! When I tried to get the DH excited about it. He pointed at his runny nose and said, "see this, I am sick."

    Anyway, I'm off to bed. If I had a night like the last several, it'll take me an hour to get to sleep (thanks to coughing), I'll sleep for a couple of hours, wake up coughing, be awake 4 - 6 hours, before going off to sleep again. However, tonight if I wake up during the night, I'll stay up so I don't miss making our ADRs first thing. If I'm awake enough after I make them, I'll let y'all know how it went. If not, I'll let ya know after my nap.

    I would, if my kids were young. And I did make them wear PFDs. I still have their little PFDs hanging up in the basement!! Hmmmm, time to do some house clearing!
