Well I thought I would make a PTR since I am completely obsessed with this board. I actually cannot think of any more questions to ask! I come here and just keep re-reading all the posts..Is that pathetic? This will be a long babble of my thoughts since I am late in the game getting this done!! And , boy can I babble...IT's a gift. We are flying down November 1st and staying until November 6th...oh I wish it were longer!! Anyhow my dh and I went to Disney for our honeymoon back when Port Orleans was Dixie Landings. We loved it and had the best time..not to mention gained 1000 pounds with all the food we ate. Holy poop it was a lot of food! Back then, we were able to walk into restaurants My Dh and I have three children. I have 2 girls ages 12 and 7..and a little boy who will be 5 by the time we go...if you see a little boy that looks like the child from Jerry Maguire that week...come on over and say hi! Soooo we went back to Disney when the in-laws lived there...My son wasn't born and we just went to some hotel offsite for three days with dh's parents. It was great..but we didn't spend too much time there unfortunately. I was very pregnant..and miserable! It was July My ankles were 7 times there normal size...that is no exaggeration!! We got to go back down when friends from Pittsburgh moved down to FLa. We had moved to Maryland and decided to go down and visit them with our other friends from the old neighborhood in Pitt. We went to Universal ..and the rest of it just slips my mind.... So I am so excited to go back down!! My girls don't really remember those trips . We live in South Jersey now...oh no..did I lose you ? We are really not scary people! We are a very nice people. We were taking our kids to Medieval times a couple months back and dh and I were talking during the 2 hour car trip. We got onto the holidays and how stressful it has become . I was kind of complaining how my dd12 doesn't need anything this year and the other two ask for toys and they either break...never worked<darn those Pixos>..or they just stop playing with them after the first day. I had just given a ton of toys to the Amvets. I mentioned that it was too bad we couldn't just go some place for Xmas and have that be a "family" present to us all. Well Dh loved the idea and Disney world suddenly became an option!! Yes!! After looking into Xmas week(we were going to surprise our kids)..we were a little flustered at how expensive it was ..and then I found out it was the most crowded week of the year Sooooooooo we went with good Ole Jersey week! Both kids have three days off..so it works out perfectly. We were going to stay at Port Orleans with a family of five and go for the free dining. My dh and I ate at CRT on our honeymoon and really wanted to do it again. I started coming here to the boards to ask questions and I finally learned what an ADR was!! Do you know how long it took me to figure out all the abbreviations??! But thank goodness for the board because I managed to snag an 11/2 CRT ressie for 7:30..Yay! We planned on getting 3 day base tickets and going to Seaworld one day. My ds is in awe of sharks and whales..just loves them. They have even replaced dinosaurs..which is a close second. It is one of my favorite parks so we just had to go. I found out about T-rex and that is what we will have for dinner after Seaworld. DS will pass out from excitement. I started having trouble getting ressies since we were more last minute with this trip. I was booking places just to book and after checking out the menu..I became concerned. We are not adventurous eaters. I would order cheeseburgers at every restaurant until I was 21. I am serious. Even at a mexican restaurant..I would ask if I could have a cheeseburger. I finally became more adventurous with the eating..but I just don't care for "exotic". We are not hopping so I felt I was becoming a slave to the dp. FD is so great and would save us a bunch of money...but I started to question it.. Oh and then the dreaded bed bug postings came up...Oh I was so skeeved The whole thought of bed bugs and that were actual reports..I prefer to live in a bubble sometimes. That bed bug post gave me some pause..and then I read the h1n1 post Oh man...bed bugs and swine flu??? What happens if we get both? I had trouble sleeping that night But then it dawned on me..that I have to let this go.. I HAVE to . I won't enjoy my vacation. We will just check the mattress and take our vitamins. I have no control over it..so poop on it!! Theeeeen I started to wonder about the POR and the 2 double beds with trundle. I knew my son would say "Um no"to sleeping on the trundle.. He gets scared now and then. I knew this was going to be a tight fit with all five of us. My dd12 suffered a concussion last April ...it has been such a long road and very scary..but she is finally doing better. She only gets headaches when she does to much now and can settle them back down by resting..I am hoping she might be perfectly fine by November...but I was concerned about the size of POR . If she is still suffering ..she will need to come back to the room and it could be a big pain. The Poly fell into my lap. I got a great discount and it was actually cheaper then staying at the POR..but no free dining. Well I was having issues with the fd anyhow..I am saving 100 dollars between the hotel stays..Will we eat more than 100 dollars worth of food? Yep. But it just works better for us..and I am SO EXCITED !!! I now am drooling over all the Poly pictures and what it has to offer. I can't sleep at night! The Excitement is too much. ....to be continued!
