    OK... I was bored and I had a thought come to mind: What is most expensive WDW trip you can book online?

    My first try at this I came up with the following:
    - 8 Adults
    - 15 days/ 14 nights at AKL
    - 2 BR Suite - Club Level
    - 10 Day MYW tickets - Hopping/WP&M/No Expire
    - Platinum Dining Plan w/ Wine add on
    - No airfare (That could really vary it)

    Price: $50,759.86

    :QUOTE=Emma's Dad;32789470]I know I'm probably missing a few new requests to join the club... I'll get to those in just a minute. I have to inform you guys of a conversation I had last night with DW. As most of you know, I'm working on DW to increase her interest in future DW trips. Well... I'm sitting on the couch last night snacking on some plain M&M's (my DD calls them Emma M's :)) and out of the blue DW says, "You're probably going to think I'm crazy... but I was just wondering why we haven't booked our trip to WDW for next year yet?" I about choked on a blue M&M when the words came out of her mouth! After regaining normal air flow again, I tried to be quick thinking and said "Well... I was thinking more like a mini-trip in the fall since they still have free dining...." (just testing the water here). And she's like "...well how much would that be?" :cool1: Oh yeah! We just might be taking a trip sooner than I thought was possible. She's starting to get it. :yay: I do believe we are going to have to do a DVC presentation next trip......[/QUOTE]

    :thumbsup2 oh,nice work don!!! oct 7 - 17 sounds like a nice time to go. i think free dining ends in sept. BUT, if you drive,stay at pop or one of the all-stars for a week? with food and some spending you could probley do it for 23-2500.00? :woohoo:

    The Party Bus knows no boundaries. In fact, we'll strap some empty 55 gallon barrels to the sides and mount a 200 horsepower Evinrude to the back, just in case we need to float that thing overseas to pick up some more dads.
    And then we can drag race the ferries from the TTC to the Magic Kingdom. Water skiing on Seven Seas Lagoon! Long live the Party Bus! WHOOOO!

    Hey Dads this is OT but im at my wits end and need some help. I have a chocolate lab (named Daisy). She is almost a year old. Several weeks ago she began constantly barking at night. Almost as soon as the sun goes down and untill the the sun comes back up she is constantly barking. As some of you might know, I am always on the road with my work. My DW is on the verge of getting rid of my dog:scared:. Does anyone have any suggestions that might help bring her barking down to a minimum.

    I've had both of my dogs in obedience classes, and while they are far from well behaved, I (and they) did learn enough make them productive members of the family. A quick Google search found this: http://www.perfectpaws.com/bark.html. Basically, it will take a lot of patience to train them not to bark. Also, dogs like labs really need exercise. Lots of it. Good long walks will be very difficult for DW and the kids while you are gone. Do you have a big yard? 30 good minutes of having the kids run around chasing the dog (don't teach the dog chase the kids, though), throwing balls, etc will really help. See if there are any dog parks in the area that she can go to to socialize. I know it sounds odd, but dogs are naturally pack animals, so they usually respond very well to play time with other dogs. Check out www.dogpark.com and www.dogparkusa.com to see if there are any in the area. Or check with your vet.
    Good luck with Daisy!

    Oh, yeah! The don't tail gate sign might be a bit redundant after the first use of the hole. I'm guessing that car will never tail gate anyone ever again.

    Would she notice Ny-Quil in her water bowl? :rotfl:

    Sorry, I know that's not much help. I'm not a dog owner, but I like the idea of trying to tire her out during the day.

    Inside dog or outside dog? I don't think that dogs start barking without reason. Any other dogs in the neighborhood acting differently?

    I'm also in for the party bus! I'm surprised that from this group the suggestion wasn't "Limo.... make it a stretch. Wait, no, make it a SUPER STRETCH!" You know, something that will go from 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds with a CD player full of Aerosmith tunes?!?! :laughing:

    Most school buses are already about 40 feet long, so that should qualify as a super stretch. It may not go 0-60 in quite 2.8, but it will backfire and belch black smoke when you hit the gas hard. So yeah, a sound system will definitely be needed to cover up that noise. CD, Cassette, 8-track, LP, iPod dock. We can wire it all up!

    She is an outside dog, always has been. None of my neighbors have dogs. The last time I was home, (Two weeks ago) I sat on the patio and listened while she barked but couldn't hear any other dogs barking or any noises but her hearing is better than mine. Its very strange because she only does it after it gets dark. As soon as the sun comes up she gets quiet. We have a large back yard and the kids play with her during the day.

    I just found this thread while I was looking for info on dad traveling alone with DD and DNeice. Wow! I just thought I was a Disney Dad until I read the 119 notes on the first posting but the essential part is ... I love Disney and I'm a guy ... so sign me up, fellas! Two trips planned for 2010. I'm going on an anniversary trip with my wife in January and taking my DD and DNiece in December.
