Well, on the way to school IN THE CAR, she says Mommy my tummy really hurts I think I am going to throw up! AND SHE DID! IN THE CAR! so gross! Poor kid! she is in the tub right now blowing bubbles! I had to cancel all my daycare kids for the day and now I have to go clean the vomit out of the car before it freezes! mmmmm frozen puke! Hope everyone else is having a better day than I am!
I did the exact same thing last week. DD7 woke up with a tummy ache, but we had to take DS11 to school for his student council meeting so I told her to go ahead and get ready for school and she would probably feel better after we had breakfast (I take the other 3 to breakfast after we drop of DS11). Well she promptly puked as soon as we dropped of DS11. Fortunately, she is a pro at puking in the car and we always keep extra shopping bags handy since she is prone to motion sickness (like her mother). She ended up being fine the rest of the day, but threw up once more around 1am the next day so she had to stay home for 2 days. Of course, DD3 then came down with it the very next day. I've been making all the kids wash their hands as soon as they come in the door from school so we aren't sick at Disney (hopefully)! Good luck to all of you who are trying to keep winter illnesses at bay!

I haven't read the whole thread now, but you have to right click on the design to save it to your computer. Then insert it into a Word document, or any graphics program to print it. If you're using the "clear" transfers, you have to print them as a mirror image. If you're using the white (for dark color) transfer, then DON'T do them as mirror image. I just printed out a bunch last night.
Thank you! I knew the snowbirds could help

Hey Sharadoc - I see that you have the ASMu Family Suite - did you have to call to book that? I've not seen them as an option online. And do you know how many there are? We're considering that for a future trip if we have one or two extras with us (like a grandparent) and really don't know much about how to get one.
TIA

I also need to do some research for this...apparently once everyone found out I was going to Disney I became the go to person for future trips and a family at much church needs to either have the suites or are looking to stay at the Fort Wilderness cabins!!!

I'm also helping a friend of my mom's and her boss with tips on how to plan a good trip LOL!!

Not to mention I'll be planning my next trip (before Christmas) HEHEHEHEHE... I'm so excited!!!

I too have found out tons of tips on this thread. What would I do without all of you? As for that wallet, it was with all the other wallets, but it had a clearance price tag on it. I believe it came in white and black as well. I snatched up the last pink one at my Target!

I have officially given up on looking for those mini M&M's. I looked at Target, Walmart and two different grocery store chains. Nothing. I'm a little bummed to say the least.

What about at a gas station or corner store? That's where I found mine

Hi everyone,
Working No more disney planning for me. Though an DC at DS party was telling DH about them buying into DVC. SO NOW HE is intrested. Of course, because somone else told him it is a good deal. That is always the way with him. he sent for the DVD.
Hope everyone is getting ready for their trips. Many of you will be leaving soon. Enjoy it, is goes so darn quick.

Please tell me not to panic ! I just called CRO to see about upgrading to either CBR or WL just for grins and was informed that there was no availability! The only Mod or Deluxe that availability was POFQ. This really worries me about the crowd levels when we're there! Did I mention DH & I hate crowds? I know it is all good since we'll be in Disney, but I really wanted lower crowds in Jan. At least we won't be roasting, right?

Of course DS10's definition of "warm enough" for a water park is about 50F...for me, more like 80F!



We are! We're in northern VA, so a tiny bit farther for us. We're leaving Sunday morning and stopping for the night in GA, and plan to be at WDW early Monday afternoon. I like the idea of a LGMH for the van! However, that would require 'fessing up to my DH about the DIS. He knows I've been planning for the trip, but I don't think he realizes how deep into it I've gotten! Of course, I'll have to tell him anyway, when I tell him that the next item on our agenda is to go to a Snowbird meet!
This cracks me up! My DH came home the other night with some "tips" on Disney from a coworker who had just returned. I told my hubby that his coworker was only legit if he knew what a LGMH was. This meant I had to explain the LGMH to DH who then looked at me with raised eyebrows, pats me on the head, and tells me "it's o.k. to be you." I think I scared him ! Good luck with your "true confessions".

There could be a bunch of reasons for lack of availability, including the type of package you have. I wouldn't worry too much about crowds in January. The one thing we've learned from our last two January trips is that a busy January beats a busy July (In terms of both crowds and heat). So stay calm, don't panic, and like you said "It’s all good since we'll be in Disney."

Thank you, I can breath now! FYI...our package is MYW base tickets with basic dining for 7 nights.

It will be fine! Maybe it's just the amount of people in your party, the package deals, etc. It absolutely can't be that crowded! The only days it will be busier will be MLK weekend. Just because people have time off. We were there last year for that Friday and it was busy, but we were able to ride what we wanted. Longer waits on Peter Pan, but that was it. You will be fine- it will be DISNEY!!!
