I know what you mean......I spend the whole year worrying something will happen.......but I`m a worrier....it`s what we do


We`re all sat watching what for some, would be the most boring thing on the planet.

F1 Grand Prix starts this month and we are sat watching them testing the cars in Barcelona. Love it!!! Looking out for my brother who works in F1.....not a driver though unfortunately

Tonight got some friends coming around for pizza and wine night. I`m making homemade so hope they turn out ok. We have pizza menus at hand if needed!! Last time I made pizza the dough rose about 3 foot in the oven It was not great! It was funny though.... as everyone reminded me for months!!

Hope everyone`s good, have a great weekend

6 weeks today I`ll be arriving in New York

to dizzi, our newest homie !!

so glad you came to the darkside, we love new homies.


I hear ya about the coffee addiction.
i'm going nuts cutting back on it due to some new meds.
caffeine withdrawal is miserable.

there are no balconies at HRH or RPH.
there are some at PBH.

you can get good park views and pool views at rph and hrh depending on the location of your hotel room and type of room.

you can also get a good rate with the FLO code as you are a floridian resident.

weekend rates for the hotels run a tad higher than during the week.
right now for the month of October, rph is the highest, then pbh and hrh has standard rooms for $202 a night. but, the FLO code will bring the cost done.

of course, this could all switch around on hotel rates.
do book a night or two for onsite when you know your plans.
check the website for rates frequently.
if your rate drops, call and request it be modified to the better rate.
(i do this all the time)


there have been a splattering of standard rooms at rph for october with the stay more, save more public code but you need 5 nights or more to get the $177.xx room rate per night.
when oct. ressies are cancelled, those standard rooms are going back into the pool.
i'm still trying for the 15th as right now that night for me is at $389.xx


rooms open up frequently but you have to catch them right away at the rph right now. i'm guessing that by May, there will be more availability at rph.

the other two have plenty of open rooms to book.

i live for HHN.
i am completely and totally addicted to it.

your daughter will love it.
do you think you will tag along or will she go just with friends?

doing hhn will surely make up for any unhappy birthday event.
you are a great mom to do this for her!

Saturdays for hhn is very crowded.
less crowds on thursday nights.
sundays used to be crowd free but has grown due to the popularity of hhn.
fridays are less crowded than saturdays, but more crowded than sundays.
in mid october, wednesdays are added for hhn.
stay away from Hell Week. it's when the schools have a mini break and all the teens hit the parks...

all the above is in Mac 101

don't worry about mickey.
i'm sure if he could get away with it, he would try hhn also.

i do split stays.
i do the motherland on site for a week then switch to the darkside resorts.
they both get my money.

i am sure others here in this thread will give their thoughts and suggestions to you.
we all experience hhn and the hotels differently.
just sharing my opinions on them.

we are a friendly bunch of homies and like to help others.

I Plan on going to HHN.
.
I just hope i can get through it

I dont like horror shows or movies. Her Dad will love it, and she is horror film junkie.

I am sure i will have lots of questions between now and then.

I know we will want to go on the slowest time possible. Just not sure what dates that knowwill be yet?

I dont know how long we will b staying since we will be taking other kids and i assume they wll have to miss school to do th better days.

Since we do live only 2.5 hours away i am thinking the first day i will pick the kids up as soon as they check in to school so they ar counted for that day.

That would get us there by 11:15. ish.

That is the only plan i have so far......

i haven't bought my plane tickets yet.
i have my darkside hotel finalized but not the motherland portion yet.

i want to be in orlando on the sunday so i can meet up with youse and the family, that is my priority.

i have not found very good schedule for the flight on that weekend, but a decent one on the monday.

i'll keep searching the flights and that will determine the date i will be in orlando and seeing youse!!

i usually have my air purchased by now but an unexpected situation happened and i couldn't.
i'm just now starting on the air portion of my trip.

i'll get the motherland portion for a resort done by the end of the month.

as usual, i tell all my homies here my vacation dates and plans and then tell Mr Mac when i will be gone.


6 weeks and you will be back in ny.
wow!

i bet you won't be sleeping much on that vacation.
but, you can sleep on the flight back home.
sounds like a plan.

Hi dizzi!

Welcome to the Dark Side!

I am know by our local haunted houses as "She who can not be scared" so I will give you my one and only HHN personal experience. I didn't find it scary Yes they have some great "surprises" but I was more intrigued by the wonderful attention to details and found the scare-actors fun. If you approach it looking for the little details and just enjoying the scenery and energy, I sincerely believe you'll have a wonderful time. I hope you and your family enjoy yourselves!

lol......that sounds like me........love it........even if I`m jumping higher than a bird with fright.

My DH still says his best HHN moments were the first and second years we went and I was gripping on to poor Todd like my life depended on it....especially since the first time I had just met him half an hour before He would have loved to have it on camera!!

I`ll try and be good this year

Dizzi.........you`ll love it


Pizza and wine night last night went great........all the pizza`s turned out fine and had a really good night. Tired this morning as last ones went home around 2.30am.......late for us!

Beautiful day here today......should do some gardening......or maybe not.

carole - lol Todd is a good sport! I always try to position myself behind tall guys in the house conga lines

can't say i've ever had pizza & vino...beer, that's another story. have a groupon to use up before it expires for a place called beernutz, so cold i can't bring myself to leave the house. think a call may be in order for takeout.

how cold is it? tried to call and get appt to change oil at one of those quick lube places and voice mail said they were closed due to extreme temperatures.
