last year my hubby and I got a room discount and it saved us about 350$ which was AWESOME! Since there is a discount being offered during peak summer days i'm feeling more hopeful that the discount for not peak travelers will be pretty good.
Also I hope the wristband thing works out well. I like the idea of not digging around my pockets or purse trying to find my husband's and my swipy cards. I hope they do stay on strong though cuz I would be so sad if it flew off on a ride or something. Also, I wonder, if you were to pay more for the personalized one, would you be able to reuse it from year to year, cuz that would make it way more worth the extra money! And I would get one then lol. IDK just me thinking silly I guess.

He did not ask too many questions because he didn't understand and he was on his way to a business trip....and he never booked a trip to Disney before, so he may have been confused? I think he may call back to see what they were offering at a later time
Do you know if your friends have signed up for the Dining Plan at all? It sounds like the CM may have been trying to get them to add the Dining Plan, which claims to save up to 15% versus paying OOP. But if you find out anything about other deals, it would be really interesting to know!

(Went thru many shades of testing lol) Also redesigned the font a bit so more of the image shows thru. The printed size as is comes out to about 9.5" wide by 7.5 inches tall. Since they are a .png file they resize pretty well so you should be able to print in any size.

They are fully customizeable! Just let me know what design you would like and I can usually have it ready for you in a day or so. I'll use your forum user name by default, but if you want something different just let me know! Also if you want, I can change the background to just about any character but realize that some may not work well with the shape of the text.

So here are this year's 2013 Team August LGMH's!

Mickey and the gang!


Princesses


Villians

I would like one of these for our upcoming August trip with Mickey & the Gang on it. Would be nice to spot any DIS-board members also wearing these and vice versa.

Yes, they did have the dining plan already included. I am going to suggest he calls back for more information.

I haven't seen SenecaWolf around lately. I hope she's OK. Don't think she is ignoring you if you don't hear from her soon, she's been ill earlier in the year and I worry that she's ill again.

Is she the one who also runs the Facebook group? If so, then she also added me there. If she is ill, praying for a quick recovery!

Man, I just got an email from Touring Plans saying they updated the crowd levels and best/worst parks during our stay and now I'm stressed! I can't change dining reservations around anyways, and I also look at Easy WDW's calendars but it still stresses me when we're hitting a couple of the worst parks (as rated by TP) on a couple of our days. I wonder why they updated their site? Maybe because of the discount that was just released? Final park hours don't get released until a month before or something correct? So it shouldn't be that.

I got the same email and I did another trip itinerary based on the new best/worst days. I made reservations based on the new plans. I kept the old as well. That way, when it comes closer to the trip, I am prepared with two different plans. I will cancel whichever doesn't seem to work a few weeks before our trip.

It did cause a great deal of stress though for a few moments.

I'm not subscribed to touringplans but I did look at easywdw again. The calendar looks like the crowds will die out while we are there, which is nice, but for the most part the list of recommended parks doesn't line up with what we have planned.

Our idea was to start and end with MK on Sunday and Thursday (18th/22nd), probably have EP, then a break/WP day, then HS to fill it out. If we followed the recommended parks guide for that week to do what we wanted we would have to go HS, EP, MK, MK, WP/break. That doesn't really jive well for me since we wanted to have the break in the middle and start/end with MK.

We don't have any ADR's (yet) although we are considering a breakfast ADR at Akerhus for our EP day so we can be flexible if need be, but we also don't have PH so we have to pick a park and stick to it. That worked out really well for us on our last trip and that was the week of Thanksgiving, which was significantly more crowded than this upcoming week will be.

We're also content that this is a bonus trip for us, as we didn't think we'd have the money for this before. We also know that we'll be back in June 2014, so if we miss something now we likely can see it then.

Talking August 12th- 18th

Hello All. Me, DW and 2 DD's ( 7 & 5 ) have a trip planned and are ready to go. I'm waiting for the drive down from NJ. We're staying at AS Sports MYW with QS Dining but looking for Dining Pin Code to upgrade to the Regular Dining Plan, my DD's are wanting to eat in Cinderella's Castle and meet all of the Princesses. I keep calling each week to see if they've attached a code to our names, but nothing yet. Hope to see many of you there and I would love to get 4 of the Lime Green Mickey Heads, 3 Princesses 1 Characters. Thanks to everyone here and may you all have a Magical Day.

There has been alotta speculation and some doubting about if and when there will be free dinning this year. I am still hoping, many are not planning on it.
We discuss so much here, hope you enjoy it all!

QUESTION OF THE DAY

So it's August, and the sun will be out shinning bright. Do you bring spay sun screen or the old lotion kind? Do you have a SPF level minimum you use? Any favorite brands?


I am photosensitive due to meds, so I am really worried about burning.
