I mentioned the term 'Hooray Henry' to John and he hadn't heard of it.

I have never heard of it either - had to google it:

Meaning:
A loud-mouthed but ineffectual upper class fool.

Origin:
This sounds very much like a phrase of British origin - possibly from the pen of P. G. Wodehouse. In fact it's an American phrase, coined by Damon Runyon. In a piece for a 1936 edition of Collier's Weekly, Runyon wrote:

"He is without doubt strictly a Hoorah Henry, and he is generally figured as nothing but a lob as far as ever doing anything useful in this world is concerned."



Hmmm, you learn something new every day.

Well, there you go!!! I would never said it was an American phrase. They always say we get everything from accross the Atlantic!!!

Welcome crushonjessica! You will be joining a great group of DISer's!

I just booked five nights precruise at POFQ with a 40% off room code that I got in my email. Now all I have to do is purchase park hoppers and watch for good airfare when it gets closer to Sept. Does anyone know the cheapest place to purchase park hopper tickets? We booked our vacation through DU. TIA.

I told DH that, if I find a great deal on Spirit in September for this cruise and it requires to leave before the 11th... I'm taking it!! It's so nice to have a house that I don't need to worry about a Hotel.. I already know my room will be ready whatever day I get there..

Plus, then maybe I can meet up with some of you Before hand!!

Question

We are thinking of not renting a car as we will just be flying down on Friday this time. Is it a major pain to handle transportation without your own car? We haven't booked our flights yet.

We took Magical Express to our Friday night accommodation--Old Key West. DCL buses pick up there so we went straight from the Hospitality House to the Port. It was a nice way to travel, very restful.

We did not get to the port early as some enjoy doing. BUT, when we got there we found no wait for check-in or for boarding. We had plenty of time to eat, explore, check out the scenery and swim (that is when the phone went swimming....) before life boat drill.

I got a PM from GaCruisers with permission to share. Financial constraints are hitting a lot of folks these days.

I signed up for emails from disneyworld.com. From what I understand from reading the DIS though, is that not everyone gets them. Some people have received postcards with pin numbers. Some people get nothing. My son's gf got a postcard with a pin number because she has been to WDW in the past. Sorry, I can't be more help.

Aww thats a shame.. But.. it's true.. The economy is in a crisis right now and cruising or vacations is NOT on the top of priority lists anymore..

Saving a house or a job is the #1 concern for most right now
