When does your Mickey Mail usually arrive? I'm waiting very impatiently. Does anyone know if you pre-ordered photopass+ if that info comes with the MMail? When we paid, it looked like the price reflected the pp+ addition, but it didn't have it as a line item on the receipt anywhere.

By the end of the week we will only be one calendar page flip from our trip!!!
In Oct our pp+ came separately from our MM. Haven't ordered our yet this go around!

I hadn't heard about the "back door" so I called to make my final payment. I told the automated system I wanted to make a payment and I did the whole thing pretty quickly using only the automated system. It even told me I was "Paid In Full". It was quick and easy.

Ironically, it was like my fifth final payment. I keep adding stuff. POP is the only resort I didn't make final payment for. I booked CSR standard room with tickets and made final payment. Then switched to POR with King bed and made final payment. Then added DDP and made partial payment and then a few days later final payment. I added my last day back and made final payment (wow, Debbie, you are on it...I haven't even posted that change on this thread yet but you already have the list updated...your awesome!) I added PH yesterday and made final payment again. The more OT I work the more money I make and the more money I spend. It's a vicious cycle. I guess I have an allergy to money in my account or the thought of actually having spending/fun money while on vacation.

My house would love to have some of this money dumped into it. I was looking at my main bathroom and I am just ashamed that other people will have to endure it while I am on vacation. I gave DH quite the lecture about being a lazy home owner. I even thought for 1/2 second that I should cancel the Disney portion of the trip to redo the bathroom, but luckily DH told me "Uh, HEdoublehockeystick NO! Thank goodness my DH is so rational

Any who, after all that. The automated phone system was an easy way to make a payment. And I don't normally have anything nice to say about automated phone systems.

You know, I hadn't thought that I minded the new website too much, it's kind of cute and all, when it works. But when I brought up that link I was almost giddy at seeing the "old" site again. Now I miss it. The new one definitely seems a little less Magical in comparison.

For some reason I still can't bring myself to PIF though, not sure what's holding me back It's going on our Disney Visa anyway, and we'll use the 6-months financing. But it still seems like an awfully big commitment. I have one more week until I'll have to take the plunge!

We're in the same boat house-wise. Lots of little things that need done since we'v e been here 11 years now, stuff is starting to go. A little tiny part of me (the un-fun,responsible part, lol) keeps thinking how we really should be spending this $ on the house, not vacation. BUT, then I think - I bust my butt working 3 jobs, am prone to depression (having an upcoming vacation is the best antidepressant in the world for me), and my kids are only young once; in 10-20-30 years would we look back and have fond memories of the new bathroom sink and/or tile backsplash in the kitchen? Is getting up every morning looking at new wall ovens going to keep the depression at bay? If i die next year, will i die happy that we spent all this $ on refinishing the floors? NO, NO, and NO!! Must keep the priorities in order.

Our philosophy also. Luckily my DH is just as Disney crazy as me if not worse. We say enjoy it while we can, while the kids are young. They aren't going to look back at their childhood and remember the boring things, they will remember our vacations. Don't work to pay bills I say, must have something to work FOR.

Oh well I'll be excited for our ME stuff.

Actually had two, one lunch and one dinner. But since the menu is the same all day, I cancelled lunch (which, of course, was on a different day). We've eaten there every trip, even the trip we planned in less than two months. Persistence is the key to getting an ADR there if you really want one.

Well, actually all we got was our Magical Express stuff since we're in DVC. But it's better than nothing! It made me quite happy seeing "Contemporary Bay Lake" on the luggage tags.

51 days.....and it can't come soon enough!!!!

My kids very rarely get sick, but boy oh boy, my little one has been struck down.

She has had a fever since Saturday and is just plain miserable. Normally, DH would stay home with her because he gets oodles of sick time (separate from his vacation time) but he had a meeting today that he could not miss. So, I am off today with my sick little.

I get 6 weeks of vacation time, but I hate to use it for sickness.
