When did you send in your request?
Thanks for the hints on how to get my boyfriend to go. I faxed my request in on a Monday for a Friday check in. I hope your request works out as well as mine did.

Tee Shirts!!

Sooo I decided to totally Disney Geek myself out for this trip and I made some tee shirts! I used this board: DISigns!

I made three for myself and two for my cousin and one for my friend!

These are all of them:


The Phillies one is for my friend, the Chip & Dale one and the Steelers one is for my cousin, the other three are for ME!

These are mine:


Surprisingly, I really like the way the blue one came out!! I can't wait to wear them!

My sister is a HUGE Steelers fan, so I'm definitely going to get that shirt for her for when we go in November!! Do they have all the NFL teams? I'm going to go and check out the link right now, thanks for posting that! I hope you have a wonderful time in Chicago and and out west! I only have four and a half more days until our vacation at the Outer Banks!!! Hopefully, the weather will cooperate, but right now, it's saying rain for four out of the seven days we are there! I really want that to change!

Hi Kelly!

Love the shirts! I'm thinking of making myself one for MNSSHP...

And I'm totally thinking about upgrading to an AP when I'm there. I figure, even if I just go back one more time in the next year (which I plan to in Oct '10, with my niece), it'll be worth it. Do you know if there are AP room rates for all the resorts? (Sorry to interrupt your thread with AP questions!)

Though, from reading your report so far, maybe upgrading to an AP is a bit...dangerous?

Hi! Umm...the AP is a little dangerous, but in a good way! And this past year there have been room rates for the moderates (I'm saving 40% at the CSR! ) and values every time it's released. The deluxes are a little different. Wilderness Lodge and Animal Kingdom Lodge are always included. Sometimes Saratoga Springs and Old Key West are included. And maybe once? this year other deluxes were included. If you're looking at staying at a moderate or value, you're definitely covered. Oh, and you can book an AP rate without actually getting the AP yet. You just have to produce one sometime during your stay. Feel free to interrupt at any time if you have any other questions!

My boyfriend and I went out last night around sunset to a restaurant on the Erie Canal. So I practiced taking dusk shots with my new Gorillapod

I think they turned out pretty good!







I was practicing last night because I leave for Chicago tonight, then onto California on Monday. It might be awhile before I post again! Have a great Memorial Day everyone!!

Thanks Norybell!

I'm still out here in California. I really want to steal our rental car and head down the coast. According to the info we got from the hotel, Disneyland is only a mere 8 hours away. Totally do-able. But we start wine country tomorrow! And I don't really want to miss that...decisions, decisions

My brother's birthday is tomorrow, so I can tell him that for his birthday I'm buying his share of the QSDP. I'm terrible at keeping secrets, so I'm having a hard time.

Thanks so much I'm editing my photos from "wine country" right now. I only used my gorillapod once though...to take a family photo Looks like it'll get a proper introduction at Disney.

We're all systems go for Disney now! On Monday I'm adding my brother to the package officially! So he'll just need his ticket. I'm putting him in charge of in-park transportation, sunscreen, ponchos and to-the-airport transportation. I think he can handle it!!
