My job is going well. I've finally figured out what I'm doing and today I had EVERYTHING finished before I had to leave the office!

One of my jobs is opening mail. (Have I mentioned that this is an entry-level position????) Anyway, I opened something today that made me do a little dance. It was an invitation for a seminar hosted by DISNEY. Now, this wasn't anything to do with my job, but still, it was nice to have that Disney logo sitting on my desk for a while. I don't think I've ever seen a Disney healthcare seminar, but you know, us Disney lovers come in all forms!

Oh and a PSA for all of you. PLEASE for the love of Popcorn do NOT staple your check to your statement. I HATE having to pull those stupid staples out and they HAVE to be pulled out without causing much damage to the checks….
So glad to hear that everyone is doing great and jobs are working out

The other day I scrolled down further then Disney stuff on Disboard... and found a thread on Universal...

and

jenseib - had done a great trip report on their Universal Trip... Her pictures were fabulous so I decided to put Universal in our trip plans now. One day... Park to Park - as they call it.

So excited about you deals on airfare!!!! and your new plans...
Always fun when you get another day in Disney!!! I hope you get "Be Our Guest" so you can send us lots of pictures of it... I'm so excited to see it.

Have a super day!!!
92 days!!!
I'm 419 days til Disney
148 day's til I cruise.

I know!! I was really excited about the flights. Of course, it just added to the upfront cost of the trip, but we will somehow make it work!

And I'm anxious to hear my news on Monday as well! Jenn will probably have to give you a little teaser, since she'll be the one that is actually booking it for me! I love having a TA this go round! I know I could do all of this, but where we are at right now, it's so nice to have another "brain" working on this trip for me!

Thanks!

Christen..I see you skipped plans for Thursday on your list. I know thats Thanksgiving, do you plan to just relax more that day. I'm sure you said it somewhere, but I can't remember right now off the top of my head.

So… I'm doing some research, but these are my questions… If you know the answer, please chime in!
  • Where do I find the movie schedule for November? I know I have seen it before… I'd like to know what they are scheduled to show the night we get into AoA. That might be a REALLY fun way to start the vacation for Cortlyn!
  • What is the Mini-Kitchen stocked with? If anything? Do I need to pack paper plates and such or will they have something for us to use?
  • Have any of you used Garden Grocer? I was really close to using them last trip and I think this trip we will use them.
  • Should I rent a double stroller? Not the Disney strollers, but from one of the offsite places? I had one, but I've moved and it was a casualty of a too small truck and a cross country move!

That might be a REALLY fun way to start the vacation for Cortlyn! I love the movies at the hotels! But usually the schedule isn't released until the beginning of the month.
  • What is the Mini-Kitchen stocked with? If anything? Do I need to pack paper plates and such or will they have something for us to use? No help here
  • Have any of you used Garden Grocer? I was really close to using them last trip and I think this trip we will use them. We've used them before and we thought it was great. When we were getting off the plane, I turned on my phone and already had a text message from them saying the food had been delivered. Exactly what we ordered and early!
  • Should I rent a double stroller? Not the Disney strollers, but from one of the offsite places? I had one, but I've moved and it was a casualty of a too small truck and a cross country move! We've discussed, but I think you should.
Goody luck on the BOG ADR!

I can only answer the Garden Grocer question. We have used them several times and will be using them again next trip. The groceries seem a little on the high price side but we went to the grocery store in Kissimmee one year instead of ordering and their prices really weren't much higher than buying the items yourself.

When you order, you give them your approximate arrival time and a "while traveling" contact number. Each time we have ordered, they called to see if we were there yet and to let us know that they were leaving our order with Bell Services. Bell Services will keep everything for you until you either pick it up yourself or ask them to bring it to your room. Oh and the cold items will be kept refrigerated by Bell Services.

Jenn is the BEST and was able to get through this morning and get me a ressie for 5:30pm on Wednesday night! I'm sooo excited and ready to get going now!!! I got the text from her MUCH sooner than I anticipated! I had saw on another board that the phones were crazy this morning before I left for work, and then before I pulled into the office I had a text from her!
