I think as we grow older and start families of our own we then realize the true value of family.

Thanks Jen! Good luck at the Ortho... both my Kids had braces, DS Paul was especialty dificult as he had so many fears/anxiety about those visits. Hope all goes well today!
Sheila.... you will love the Poly atmosphere!!! ...no second guessing .... all trips are wonderful, just let yourself go with the flow and it will end up perfect!!
Yeah, well I blubbered in 1980 and still do occasionally (well mostly its an internal blubbering.... )
That Travel agency (them that must not be named!!... okay does this sound like Harry Potter..any fans out there? ) ... they have some amazing deals! Happy you were able to book that great deal.
Hope Bob can get his med issues under control before november.
And Sheila for yesterday and everyday ....
so sad and much too young....Sam, and I have been saddened by the death of one of our favorite Glee Stars, Cory Monteith over the weekend....so tragic and senseless.
Jen, so nice that you and your DB have gotten closer again. Getting older (and having kids of your own) do have that effect.
Janet I was shocked when I heard that Cory had been found dead so sad
Yes... and his life had been going well recently...
Sheila, just wanted you to know that Sam and I will continue to remember Jason and Shaun while at Disney.... I think a Disney (NY Yankee) pin is in order for a child
We do this for Toby, Dani's sister, for a Dad of a DIS friend of mine, and now of course Sarah. In January I gave a child a Brave pin in Sarah's memory... seems the perfect thing to do.
This cracked me up "holding reservations here and there!!! Really??? So glad that you were able to find a time that you and Sam can go!!! Mother/daughter trips really are the best!!!
Sheila: Big, heartfelt hugs to you. (Sorry I didn't realize the date due to my signatures being turned off.)
Janet - SO excited for you!! Same time we're there! Did we ever figure out a date, time, location of an RC meet?
Hugs to everyone else! Life is so short when you think about it...definitely time for a Disney vacation!!
Hi Rcers! I layed out in my yard in the grass on a beach towel this morning like a teenager. I could hardly get up, but it's all good. Our pool cage lanai keeps the sun out and I need to get my upper legs a little tan before OKW.
I think I will have a "file" started on me at Univ soon, too. I just can't decide where to stay. The swaying factor to stay at HRH now is that the CL at HRH is on floor 7 and CL rooms are also on floor 7, which makes sense to me. With the others 2 CLs, excepting for a "request" to be near the lounge, CS reps said our room could end up anywhere on any floor of the hotel and not remotely near the PBH or RPR CL lounges. That seems silly to me.
Miss: So, did the dog wash YOU?
sjs314: Part of the Poly experience is the awesome array of dining option right there just steps away! Take full advantage and IMO don't change a thing. Oh, and I am still ROTFL that you left Bob propped against a wall at Wishes Dessert Party.
Koh1977: That is an excellent book and schedule you've made. Wow!
JanetB: You are the bingo QUEEN. Dole whips for everyone!! Hey, wanna meet at Cap'n Cooks at Poly for dole whips??????????????
SueM: I hope your week is a little less busy so you can R&R your knee.
Pas130: Soon, soon, but when do you leave NJ and check in to PBH????
babyberger: Yes, when the whole fam-damily is around the last thing you need is an RCer to make your head spin even more. Your early-line on ADRs looks great! Hope you get them all.
Where'd you go, Minnie&Nana ??? Hi to Kook, Wookie, GrumpyGrandma, Mousemommy1, Chimo2u and RCers big and small....
MAGIC - when will you be popping over to Disney then?
I feel like I am late to the party!
How come I never took time to read here? Probably because I am too busy changing my resorts and dates
Tentatively we have 1/1-1/2/14 at GF in Sugarloaf
Then 1/2-1/5 2 bdrm at VGv lake view
Then dd18 and I stay on 1/5-1/8 at AOA mermaid. (Doubtful but back up plan)
I have kept my VGF for 1/1. For the huge holiday price I was thinking land at 6:30p, arrive GF by 8p. We can monorail hop/shop/eat and get desserts 8-10 in lounge. Then morning I can check in for VGF and either move our stuff (us or bell services)eat breakfast in lounge. Then go to parks come back and if room ready great , if not we still have lounge access to 12 midnight! Dh does not like all 4 of us in one room but.... Since a holiday and only one night maybe I can convince him it fun. We will save enough $ to pay for dh and ds16 park tickets.
Dd wants RPC but yikes! holiday price is
I usually don't mind paying for a room even landing at 1am but the rate for that one day is so huge I think this may work better.
I will still watch for passholder rate for 1/5-1/8 for dd and I but I keep reminding her we got 2 bdrm so she has a bed not sleeper sofa and can't have EVERYTHING.
I made her a 18 magical years of disney photopass book because she has 38 trips in 18 years. Guess I created that disney monster
Glad to be here
My new accessory for the next 3 weeks
It's not broken, just a severe midfoot ligament sprain that really, really hurts
Ouch!! Take care!
Finally sitting down, going to try to catch up.
Wookie - hope you and JM had a nice quiet afternoon yesterday! Thinking of you
Koh - love the autograph books!!! So creative!!!
Shelia - I am so jealous of your Poly cabana day! That sounds so relaxing And with all the Bob stress it sounds like you need it!!! And big to you!!!
SueM - glad you made a quick recovery with DD! Sounds like we need to keep a roll of tape handy for all these RC surprises
Heather - hope the painters finish up today and you can get back to your normal routine
Janet - YAY! So happy that you and Sam are going to Disney!!!!
Jen - hope the ortho consult wasn't to traumatic! I know I have missed so much lately. What are your latest Dis plans? Still cruise then BC? Or did you switch to POR
MAGIC - glad you got some sun this morning! It is a rainy day over on this coast. about the file at Universal!
Trishadono - welcome!!!
Hello to everyone else I am missing!!!!!
Ugh, Andrew just called, he took my Target RedCard to buy Steven's bday present (Wii U) and said the cashier looked at the card and wouldn't let him use it. Looks like I need to make a trip sometime this week
Hope everyone is having a great day!
Dog is still dirty. Passing storms saved both myself and the dog from embarrassment. I'm not sure what excuse I'm going to use today...
Janet: Yaaaaaaay for booking!
Melissa: Ooooooh, poor you. Can you paint it in some girly colors to make it a bit more fashionable?
Jen: Hope it's good news from the orthodontist.
Magic: Must be an FBI mugshot-like montage of all of us up in their call centers.
All of this talk about kiddos and flying... I was 10 when I flew alone for the first time. (Actually, it was my first time on an airplane, too. ) Remember Piedmont Airlines? Back in those days, we all had to Flintstone it up the runway.
I do remember Piedmont We used to fly Eastern Airlines, another one long gone. So did the dog finally get a bath????
Ohhh, love the idea of making the boot pretty, especially after what I paid for it...different part of insurance with its own deductible of course
Sent from my iPhone using DISBoards
Thanks Linda .... And you were with me when I was making up those BB dates!...
Thanks Krystal! Not sure if a date was determined but we will do so before everyone leaves for Disney
no topless sun bathing??
Sure! I've never had a dole whip!!
Melissa.... this accessory DEFINITELY need some accessorizing!
How about some hidden Mickeys???
Thanks Melissa! We are very excited!!
Thanks Miss!! And Sam's flight is a commuter plane.... (but she knows and is okay with it).
trishadono!! Here no one is ever considered late to the party....btw love the Disney photopass memory book covering 18 trips!
Janet You are so sweet to remember so many during your trips
Sounds painfull ouchie!
We check in on FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Leaving early on the 26th
And it may be Poly for ME in 2014....for my 40th birthday party in August!! Kiddos and I decided we should stay at least 8 nights
We have stayed all three, Portofino is by FAR the nicest onsite hotel, and quietest! HRH was our least favorite, but the pool is neat-O. But you can pool hop so it's all good. We liked PBH better than GF
Wow! Good save, LOVE the book Krystal!!!!!!!!!
I agree with the acoustics at HRH, RPR is lite Polynesian-lite
Sounds fantastic to me
The dealers ALWAYS charge too much in labor fees...and BTW Candace...I know it is taking a lot for you to come back and post here...what's done is done....moving forward
2 more sleeps....well for me 1..I am working tomorrow night
I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy for you and Sam
Hope it was all good news Jen
One of the reasons I am not too sad we won't do CL. I know exactly where the lounge is, last trip our rooms were right by the Beach pool, and it would've been a pain to go back and forth...easier to order from the pool
We are the party that never stops!!! You may be our first VGF RCer
I was looking at April but HOLY CANNOLI I could book 2 RPC rooms for that price I look forward to getting to know you and hearing all about your family, plans, and of course ch-ch-changes!
I have 2 of those baby's Melissa Sorry my friend! Feel better
A huge for everyone I've missed.....BTW DH has started packing
Why is it that every time I consider not booking CL, the sounds of my kids yelling "I'm hungry!" jars me back into feeling as though I need it.
