    Thanks for the good vibes on air! I hope it is released soon...I never really relax until air is booked.

    Yeah...we are paying $539 at Anabella, Disneyland Hotel was $1295 for the same 3 nights. Paradise Pier was just around 1100. I forget what GCH was, as I know it was more, and the one I really wanted was Disneyland Hotel, but I just can't see it at that much more.
    Awesome news on your cruise! You will love it!:thumbsup2
    Congrats on the great YC deal for your friend!
    ADR's stress me out! I look at EMH days and pick the park with the morning EMH for the day. I look at crowd calendars, but don't focus on them too much, as that usually goes against the morning EMH, but we are early birds, so it works for us. We aren't doing a dining plan in Nov, since it is F&W and I am looking forward to not being tied to ADR's as much. We will make some, but won't have to worry about losing credits if we want to cancel something.
    Yum!!! Looks good to me! Esp. since you said you are on deluxe and like to park hop.
    She is so smart!
    Glad you are having a great time!
    For $40, I think I would make that change too!
    Nope, I NEVER had a "furure husband" :blush::lmao:

    Just wanted to pop in and say hello. I hope everyone is doing well. Things are their normal crazy around here, which includes JM getting suspended from school for a few days. If only those 157 days until we check into the BC could just fly by.

    Luckily it's Friday, .and I have a 12 pack of Strawberry-ritas cooling in the fridge waiting for the DH to get home.

    Jeanette: Glad you were able to also take advantage of that rate at YC!! And I am happy you and hubster had a nice couple of days. Hope you are refreshed and re-energized.

    PigletsMommy: Have you all done a DCL before? If so....share!!:goodvibes

    Linda: Did you get the info on the TA that you needed? I can also PM if you want.

    Dani: That is so cute about Lily, my youngest pouts quite frequently too and just says "I want to go back to Didney".

    Minnie&Nana: Did you decide on dates and resort for your May trip??:wave2:

    SRiley: Sounds like you fit right in here!;)

    Well, I will pop in later, I am on my own tonight. DH's band is playing a fundraiser concert tonight for a friend of a friend who is battling cancer for a second time. He is only 40ish, with a wife and two small boys. They were trying to save for a trip to Disney (this brought tears to my eyes.) when the cancer returned and the drug treatments are just eating away at their entire finances. Hope tonight will raise some much needed funds for them. I will try and post a link about them...

    Hope this works:

    Thanks. I just hate it because he has been doing so well lately.

    On an awesome note....
    When Joey got home from school, he came right to my room. He has been a real rear to get up for school this week and has been giving me attitude. As he was leaving school, he bought me a chocolate chip cookie and a chocolate milk to say he was sorry. He got his dad a chocolate chip cookie to apologize for giving him attitude the other day. I am so proud of him that he knew he needed to apologize and wanted to do something to make it up.

    Lily is SO flipping adorable :cutie: (to use a Miss-ism :goodvibes) but it's all true. She is quite the princess and knows what she wants!! :goodvibes

    Wookie, so sorry... at least it's friday and the drinks are chillin'... I assuming this has something to do with the recent problems he's been having at school?

    And just read your follow up post... Joey is quite the young man, to come to you that way to tell you straight off... and bearing chocolate too...:hug:

    Jen, thanks for sharing the story link...so sad for that young family. How thoughtful that your DH and his band members (and others in the community) are joining in to help him. Hope it raises a bunch!!:goodvibes

    I'm thinking of doing 3 nights Disney 2 nights Universal. I'm not sure though. I think if it were a longer trip I'd be more open to doing it.

    Good morning all fellow RCers!!

    DD was miserable yesterday with diarreah, and although she seems better in that department, she's awfully crabby and whiny. It's going to be a long weekend...

    No RC news although my TA did get ADRs set up. Most of them are what I wanted. O'Hana dinner is just a bit later than I wanted...8:00 at night...may have to tweak a few things if we decide to let DS do a pirate adventure cruise thing or if we do the Pirate and Pals Wishes cruise then...

    Have a good day! DD is being her RH self right now and wants me...I'll be back later! :-)

    :grouphug: I'm BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKK:grouphug:

    I am going to attempt to catch up, I am at work...of course, but my YC trip is on shaky ground. RPR was wonderful, US/IoA was SO much fun...I am SO :faint: torn. Unfortunately the funds will not support a split stay...so for now I have both booked:rotfl2:

    I am not feeling the YC love.....RPR was AHHHHHHHH (think Poly universal style......)

    Thanks Candace, the weather was improving as we left. The temps are decent low 80s. We prefer swimming weather but for kiddos there were a handful swimming. It rained, but no lightning..and now we own HP ponchos....YOU ARE ALMOST SINGLE DIGITS LADY!!!!

    :hug: It was great to come home, but back to the grind....

    Oh YUMMY! Didn't even consider that...funnel cakes and pizza too!!!:woohoo:

    :hug:

    :dance3: Pop rocks, and CSR looks nice...win-win either way!

    :hug:

    :hug: OH BOY!!!!

    :hug: Hello my RCer Family! :goodvibes I'm back from my BC trip, my Dad is still in the hospital - high acuity unit / one step down from ICU. His surgery seems to have been a success, but he has a long road to recovery ahead of him. We received more bad news Easter Sunday, my Grandma passed away. Let's say the last 5 weeks since Allan's accident have been a blur! It's been the month from hell, one we won't soon forget! Hopefully April brings not only May flowers, but New beginnings for us! One spot of happiness in the last month of chaos is I booked my leave from work for the DL DIVA trip next FEB 26-March 2! I also have the BEST roomie (our very own MinnieNana/ Christine :lovestruc) also Linda will be there with her lovely daughter Jessica! I am looking forward to getting away for some much needed girl time!
    My son is trying to weasel his way into my trip with his BFF.... He wants me to book him and his friend a offsite hotel and let them go do their own thing (they'll be 17&18) but I don't know how I feel about them being off site and on their own in LAX -- I'm staying at the GCH, and could book them a room near me, but this trip is for me to get away for some girl time. I just am not feeling like saving for extra people and bringing anyone else along -- I just want the DIS DIVA experience! I'm going to have a hard time saying no to my son, he's promising to pay for himself, and his BFF pay for himself, but really-- I just kind of want those 5 days with the ladies, to make new friends, strengthen new relationships and just be one of the Girls! ::yes::

    PIGLETS MOMMY: I am so thankful we are getting a great deal on our DIVA trip at the GRAND $200 per night is a steal! I wanted to stay at DLH, but the pricing onsite is crazy!! I will happily stay with the group deal onsite at the GCH (my second choice) to save hundreds of dollars! Onsite pricing without discounts is definitely :faint:

    Marie :wave2:



    LINDA: DC is my one guilty pleasure! ;) I have a hard time giving that up, I've tried many times -- but it's a lost cause!
