Well the order was placed on hold until I fixed the problem with the cc. I just had her cancel the order.

Seems like you got a run-around ... I'm just not understanding why Disney would do that. Seems like a lot of work.

Sorry you had to deal with that.

January Trip in the works!

Hey guys! Well I have officially made the decision to take another Disney trip and this time I will be taking a first-timer with me!!!!!

We are still not sure of what dates we will be going. We would like to go for a week, sometime between Jan 3-17th. I saw that the Marathon will be on the weekend of the 13th. I am wondering how that will affect things? Also, when will most of the New Years crowd be out. We are hoping to hit a low crowd time.

Any input would be GREATLY appreciated!

We are looking at staying at either CBR or PO-R

All I know is that I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!

I'm sorry that happened to you

My sil and bil bought me a Mickey cover for my iPhone for Christmas, but it was for a 3G instead of the 4 that I have. I tried to return it to the store, but they only carried the 3G ones in the store. They gave me a card with the amount on it and a thing to get free shipping, and then a gift card for my birthday. I got on the on line store and customized one, and tried to pay with the gift certificates that I had. Well it tried to charge my cc. When I called customer service they said that it was company policy that if you were paying with a Disney gift certificate on line, to charge your cc, and then refund the cc when they shipped your item. Ummm, no your not charging my cc, so you can just cancel that. I'll just keep my plain 'ol black Otterbox. Oh well, I guess that's about $60 that can go into the WDW spending money fund.
That is just crazy! What if you don't have a CC on file with them! Ugh

Angry So Mad!!!

DH told the kids!!! Long story short, my friend is going in June, driving down from OH and she is stopping here halfway, so I was telling DH and right infront of my oldest 2 he says to my 3yo 'Do you want to go to Disney World?' so she points to her princess tent and says 'this one' (poor child, lol) and he goes 'No, the real one! We're going in January' Well you could have picked my jaw up off the floor, I just stood there in disbelief! So now they know, but they said they'd keep it from 7yo DS. Ugh...........

I know the price goes up minimally furing marathon weekend. Other than that my decision to go the week before was, since I am not part of the amrathon, why tempt fate/bigger crowds. I like them nice and low. Oh and this way we will celebrate my bday not just dd's.

& added. When you have a more specific date or pick the resort, let me know and I will change it. I have never been in January before so I have no clue about the time frame that you are going. We are planning about the same time, depending on when you go. I need to look on Touring Plans pasts crowds calendars to see what it was like for the time that we are going (1/5-11).

I was wondering that as well. Oh well, that just more money for me to spend on stuff at WDW. hmmm, now should I put that in the total that is split between myself, the DSs and for family gifts, or should it just be for me all by myself? Besides, I should probably keep my iPhone in my Otterbox. A guy in the last class I took, had his iPhone in the same Otterbox that I have mine in. I'm still not sure how this happened, but some how on the way into class he accidently slammed his iPhone in the door of his car. The iPhone was fine....until he took it out of the Otterbox and then it was slightly bent across the middle where hte door hit it. The phone still worked perfectly. If he hadn't had it in the Otterbox, the glass on front and back would have shattered and it wouldn't have worked at all.

OMG, if my DH did that he would need to not sleep and have a food tester until I got over my anger, or he bought me something with diamonds or a new D&B Disney bag. Luckily, I don't have to worry about my DH doing that. He's as paranoid as I am that something will come up and the trip will have to be canceled. Neither one of us want to deal with that disappointment again.

My goals today include watching the latest Glee, getting a spreadshee made from the Touring Plans website on the crowd calendars from the last couple of years and hopefully it will include EMH information. I need to count the money in the Disney pig and update that spreadsheet. Then I hope to at least start ADR draft 1.
Oh and I got an idea from the November 2012 that I had been on (when our trip was scheduled for that time). They started a FB group for that thread. I am going to start one with this one. It'll be a secret group, so no one can see our posts, but us. In order to be in the group, you'll have to friend either myself and/or Marshay (started and keeping track of a January 2013 on another part of this site) on FB and then we can add you to the group. I am just waiting on Marshay to accept the FB friend request and then I can start the group. If anyone has any idea for a good or goofy name we should use, let me know.

Welcome!

Since I leave tomorrow!!!, I've been following what has happened this January very closely.

The first week of January has still been quite crowded this past year from what I read on DIS for those people who take off over Christmas and New Years and add a few days to their schedule. So 6-10's.

The 2nd week of January was not really busy at all. (TP = 3-5's)

The 3rd week of January is MLK week and picks up again. (TP currently predicts 7's for MLK weekend).

The 4th week of January shouldn't be busy at all -- this is the week I'm going and we are 1-2 mid week and 5-6's on the weekends.

The various marathons and cheerleading camps and Brazilian tour groups all do add to the mix but you just got to zig when they zag.

Ugh, sorry he told the kids but on a positive note, now you can hold him to the trip!! And it just means he is excited about going, too!

I've ready many threads on DIS where one spouse (usually the DH) just doesn't like Disney and it is sad for the other person.

Maybe not a lot of consolation but ...

On the subject of spreedsheets I really want to make one but I'm not sure where to start. Does anyone have a format they are willing so share? Or just a list of items they include on theirs?

Thanks in advance

This is my problem with my DH. He will tolerate WDW and does enjoy himself, but he would rather go some where else. Yesterday he was at a customers home (he's an appliance repair guy) and they gave him brochures and stuff for these travel companies that they use to go on trips at different locations around the world in all the time. I was looking through them last night, going "oooo I wanna go to Russie" or "oooo, I wanna go to Machu Picchu" or "ooo i wanna go to (insert a lot of other locations around the world)". Then my DH was either brave or stupid enough to suggest that after I get my computer programming degree and get a job that I, "forget all this nonsense of going to WDW every year after I start working and travel the world." I was like "umm, heck no. We can do one week at WDW and one week non-WDW". Then he kept going on and on about the great prices of these trip in the brochures. Sure the prices are great, but I don't think any company would let me take 30 days straight off of work b/c I got a great deal on a vacation to Australia/ New Zealand.

Which is the main reason for our trip being a secret. Plus it's kind of like Christmas. With Christmas my favorite part is that I know what is under the wrapping of their presents and they don't. We still have to work the kinks out on how we are going to tell them. Which ever way we do pick, they won't know until the trip is 100% paid off.

I did make the FB group. If anyone wants to join, just PM me the name you use on FB and I'll add you. If you don't want us to have your real name, you can always make a FB page with your DIS username. I'll have to add you to my friend's list, and then you can be added to the group. When you PM me here, I'll PM you back with my name, so that you know the request is from me. We made the group secret so not everyone can see it, whose in it, or what we post. The only people that should be able to see the group at all, are the ones that are in it.

Sounds fun, the Sept 2011 fb group was fun, live updates made it exciting for the people like me that were going at the end of the month.
