Rosie plus Five and Free Dining !! September 2009 Pre Trippie
 
Well many of you already know me from my solo trips and reports !!Well this September the 6 of us are going !! A little back ground into the whens and whys !! Originally we were all going this May , but a friend wanted to go too and talked DD into September , which was okay as I was expecting Free dining !!I decided I still wanted to go in May and I am as a solo!!
Well to cut a long story short the friend is now going in August and to be honest we are happy to just be going ourselves !!

The cast of characters ( and we are )
Me ... Rosie a 62 year old Disney Freak , the planner , shopper ,organizer , the maker of ADRS and flight plans etc !!!!!!

DD 35 year old Mom to 3, hardworking gal who shares my love if not my "FREAK" of Disney !! She totally leaves the planning to me and just says schedule in some potty breaks pleese Mom!!

DSIL 35 year old Dad/stepDad to 3 . This is his first ever trip to Disney, work interfered the last time !!He says he'll just follow me .. we will seee!!!

DGD Samantha age 14 She's our Bookworm her fav ride was RNRC last time and she can't wait to try it again,this time with DSD, her sister promises to go on it this year too !!

DGD Stephanie age 14 ( Yup they're TWINS) The MySpace texting Queen , Her favorite ride is HM go figure !!!!:lmao: She has said she's doing it all this time !!

DGS Kyle age 7 Tall for his age looks 10 and is as smart as a whip!! Loves Dirtbikes, skateboards ,hunting , fishing etc Hmmmm did he get that from DD.
His fav.was (this should be no surprise) LMA!!!!!:lmao:

The When.... Sept 12th thru 20th

The Where .....Pop Century ( where else)

The How ... Hopefully SWA still have to book those flights !! At least they are up and not to bad a price !!

The Why .. that's a no brainer The Happiest Place on Earth!!

A little more background I am not the most computor litterate person so pix are not plentiful but I am going to post a few here and there !!

I booked thru AAA as always my TA is awesome !! So we originally booked with basic park tickets for 7 days, 8 nights at Pop ( 2 rooms) basic dining ! Then when Free dining was released my wonderful TA camein early to work to make sure we got it !! Saved us about $1700 :banana::banana:
In up coming posts I will be planning the adrs , which days at which parks ( I joined TGM)m Iwill be looking for all your ideas , tips etc sooo jump on board as Rosie plans another !!:banana:

Oh Rosie this trip really looks like a lot of fun!
You're DD is having Gastric Bypass done? My cousin had it done a few years ago and it turned out just great. He lost half his weight and is now a healthy 185lbs.

englishrose47 04-20-2009 10:56 PM

She 's havinthe lesser band one !! But she seems to think she will hardly be eating I know she has to be careful and eat small amounts more often She will be fine using snax credits for helathy stuff for the in between I have been lookng at menus and I think all the places will have stuff we can share with her!!I'm sure th kids will :rotfl2:sacrificveggies for her!!

Jo you are the BESTEST :worship:You posted the link for me !!!:hug:

I am hoping that DD will be less camera shy this trip!!

I will keep on DD to load some more pix I will hunt for our 2007 trip cds and have her load them plus the Girls bedroom ones too!!

Good news I did book the flights today , the price was very good I thought $1675.20 for all 6 of us round trip and Non stop !!Iwill be looking for DINGS cuz any savings will pay my flight in 2010

Quite possibly the best meal I've had at Disney. :cloud9:

Grace and Mickey 04-21-2009 09:25 AM

Hi Rosie:)
I so happy to meet your family!!!!:goodvibes
Our dates are the Same Thursday Sept 10th thur Sunday Sept 20th :banana::yay::cool1:
And staying at Pop's :woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo:

Let the planning begin!!:dance3:

Congrats :cheer2: on the great price for airfares:cheer2:

We are still trying to decide about driving or flying:confused3

Southwest out of Cleveland is $79 each way, and not non stop.
I did see flights out of Detroit and Buffalo for $59 that would be about 3 hr drive from home. A rentral car would ran about $300 for 10 days.

I looking at some of the same restaurants as you:thumbsup2
Chef Mickey's
Narcoossee's to celebrate our 35th anniversary
Teppan Edo I wonder how many at a table?
Le Cellier
We are also thinking about Hoop Dee Doo
Do you have a favorite building at Pop's
I 'm not sure we want to close to the pool. and would like a quitier spot.
Looking forward to making more plans and see what tips you get from other Diser's on your PRT.
Have a magicial daypixiedust:pixiedust:
