you should be ok, i think technically they dont allow you to bring your own alcohol on board but they allow it in practice. i think with these rules, they dont normally have a problem with pre packaged stuff, its just fresh food that they dont allow. you should be fine.

i've changed my idea for my main FE gift, i've been buying stuff over the past couple of months, a bit here and there, and its piling up in the corner of my living room!! but come up with something more practical than my last idea, i'm trying to source the bits at the mo. i'm going to try and personalise them so i'll have to find out all the names for the rest of the group, once i do i'll let everyone else know, just in case you need them.

have you seen the photos of the BLT grand villas? http://land.allears.net/blogs/jacksp...ake_tower.html they look AMAZING, check out that view!

garys working tomorrow so i'm actually looking forward to having a day to myself, still havent decided what to do but it involves having a lie in!!

The online ADR system is available through Disney's travel agent website right now. I think they're testing it on us first but are probably going to release it for everyone to use via Disney's general website. Who knows when that will be though? If I get any updates on it, I will let you know. Good luck with your BLT reservation, hope you get it!

it would be amazing but thats a LOT of money for one night..............

well 9.40pm on a friday night and i'm about to start my ironing...... oh the exciting life i lead

We are trying for a one week stay, May 2 - May 9, 2010, and the one bedroom for the week is 334 points, so what we banked for 2009, and what we have for 2010 that will cover the stay. This trip will be Bob, and my best friend, Jeanne since we were 3 years old. We are calling the trip "Fifty is Nifty". Jeanne just turned 50, Bob turns 50 on May 5, 2010 and I turn 50 July 29, 2010. The goal is to get Bob the view he wants in the one bedroom, so he can sit in the room's hot tub and watch the fireworks with the music piped into the room. That is his birthday wish...well that and eating at Le Cellier for dinner on his B'day.

The Disney Doorway to Dreams store here has the models for Bay Lake Tower, and when we saw them, that was it for Bob...sign us up on the dotted line! They are very cool and spacious. I love that it has a washer and dryer in the room...and with the couch coming out to a bed, and two bathrooms, it is going to be tons of space for the three of us.

Karen, when you brought up pre-packaged stuff... don't ask me why, but I suddenly remembered that you live in the UK. If I sent you money, would you do me a favor? Bob has a thing for Jelly Babies, which are really hard to get here. I have a co-worker who's hubby is also from the UK, so when they go to visit his family every year she brings me back some. Since they are not going back until after our cruise I was going to order them over the internet, but the shipping is ridiculous. Would you be able to pick me up a couple of bags of them? I could PayPal you some money if you want.

i've just officially paid off (ie: paid off my credit card) the cruise and the 4 night AKV stay!! and i've called disney to change our all star reservation to 8 nights instead of 12! just got to decide on our dining reservations now

plus i realised that me and gary now have less than 15 weeks til we leave for florida!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good morning!! Ugg, Minnie was sick this weekend. She was fine on Saturday, but then on Sunday she woke up and couldn't open her left eye. That was all that was wrong with her and she seemed fine, but then she threw up on Sunday night once before bed...then at 2:30 in the morning she started throwing up a lot (10 times ) so we took her to the emergency vet -- they are nice, but expensive there!! He took a look at her and said she seemed fine, gave her a shot to help her stop vomiting, and it was $126!! Love the emergency vet, LOL. So now I am at work to get my computer -- of course, she gets sick the one time I leave my laptop at work for the weekend, go figure!! Now I am going home to work to stay with her and make sure she is okay. She hasn't thrown up in over an hour, so that is good. Poor doggie.

Other than that, we went to Michigan again, which was fun. I also found a 4GB memory card on sale at Target for $14.99!! I thought that was a great deal, and I can take higher resolution pictures with it, I want our cruise pics to be awesome!! Alrighty, It's time to drive home now. We are having bad storms with torrential downpours -- so much fun to drive through in the pitch black!!

Good morning everyone!

Sorry to hear about your dog Mary. Poor thing. I hope she's feeling better.

I went to see UP this weekend. It. Was. Amazing. I think that's the best Pixar movie to date. They just keep getting better and better. It was funny but some parts of it were really sad, especially the first 10-15 minutes. And I love, love, LOVED the dog and Russell, the little boy. So cute!! Everybody go see it!

Other than that, my weekend was uneventful. I had to help my brother move on Saturday and I was exhausted after that. They seemed so disorganized. I walked into their apt and they still had stuff hanging on the wall and their computer was still hooked up. Didn't seem very prepared to me! But I like things organized, that's just me.

When are the September hours being announced?? I was hoping today, c'mon Disney! I want to plan!

mary, hope minnie is ok

i'm on the lookout for september hours too, not too hopeful though as august's were at least a week late, think it'll be next week before we see anything.

i've been soooo tired today, i couldnt sleep last night, think i got about 2 hours in total if that, so i've been walking round in a daze today. hoping tonight's not the same, it'll kill me if i have another night without any sleep!!!

I'm hoping they will be announced this week. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

I don't even know how you're still awake. If I were you, I'd be passed out right now!
