This sounded like a much better day. I am glad that you got to ride Soarin together and all the treats looked and sounded delicious.

R went through that as well. A very frustrating phase to say the least.

It definitely was. Halfway through the trip and a turning point for sure. They found out they could figure out the buses on their own which led to more independence on their part.

It seemed like we were constantly eating that day, it was great!

Oh no about the strawberry shortcake! I had read good things about it too, so when we went to SS, I got it and it was marvelous! Very moist and delicious. Maybe it was an off day

I had thought about your mom when I saw the beet salad on the menu

I don't think i've ever seen that slushie with sweet milk on top! But it looks really good! Does it only come in one flavor?

I've been meaning to watch Ponyo, so i'm glad you mentioned it. I haven't heard much about the movie, so now i'm anxious to see it.

It must have been an off day because everyone raves about it.

That salad is so good. We both love beets. I pick them in the summer at a 'pick your own' farm. They have a beet salad at Jiko which is fabulous as well.

Oh no, there's a few other favors. Orange, cherry, and melon I'm pretty sure. I think the sweet milk is just condensed milk but boy is it good. It's a little stand to the left of the temple in Japan. Never would have even noticed it except someone on here had one in their TR.

Ponyo is a must watch, it's wonderful. A twist on the little mermaid story.

A ballon?!!! What in the world? I'm super surprised that a cast memeber didn't take it away. I think I read somewhere that if you bring one back, the CMs will keep it at the desk area...or something like that.

Glad to read that there was no drama with your family And getting FPs for Soarin in mid afternoon is unbelievable!! Love that ride!!!!

Well everyone, my little traveling heart is broken. My boss is going through this years vacation requests and denied my June dates. That was my BCV trip. someone else requested those dates first and it's first come first serve.

I didn't remember doing it but I had put a second request for the weekend before which she approved. Of course I didn't book anything for those dates so I'm now in a quandary. I've already canceled the BCV which made me very sad. I'm trying to decide if I should just stay home with Conner or try to go down. This trip was booked with banked points so I have to use them or lose them. Everything is available except BCV and BWV. 1BRs are available but I'd have to borrow some points which I'm not crazy about. VWL are exactly the points I have but is so far from the waterparks I think it would be inconvenient. Or I could break it up into two weekends, taking one in late July. The problem with that is that they would be super short trips. One four days and one three days. I need some input. I keep going to the website and almost booking something but then don't.

One good thing is that she approved my whole March trip which is now 12 days since I added one to the beginning. Instead of flights for $307 I found some with AirTran for $115. I already booked VWL for that night.

Thank you

I feel a little like a spoiled brat complaining since I have so many things in the works but I'm still disappointed. Getting closer to a solution but not quite there yet.

I am sad to read your troubles with the vacation...

I have been trying to get David to do some small trips, so we can relax, and just hang out. I think a 4 or 3 would be great for that, I would not try to do all the parks for a three day, but would do CL and be lazy and visit resort and do a spa day. So I guess it is up to y ou and what y ou want out of your time there.

I would at least try and waitlist for the resorts that you want. If you don't need to book the airfare right away you never know what might come up for that week in June.

I don't remember your exact dates or the ones that got approved, but if it's during Gay Days, you could probably have a lot variance with availability (no offense guys if you're out there, but you know how changy spur of the moment you can be! said with love :flower3)

You can always make the decision later and stay home with Conner, but it doesn't cost to make reservations as long as you cancel 30 days in advance. Heck I just booked a Grand Villa for one night for our band weekend at DL in November!

I am sorry that your leave for June was not approved, but I am glad that everything else was approved and that you got a bargain on your flights.

Thanks for all the input, I really appreciate it. As of now I've shortened it to a 4 day vacation instead of the six I have off and booked a standard 1BR at Jambo House which happened to be the exact points I had to use. This way I'll have a day on each end to spend with Conner and still use up the points. After some thinking I didn't want to split it into two trips because who knows if those dates would be approved. That trip will be 5/31-6/3, not sure how that corresponds with Gay Days.

Today I got the second half of the years requests and I'm going to have to cancel the October cruise and my September trip to DL will now be the first week instead of the second. I thought I was safe putting in all my requests last August 16... Thankfully DVC is so flexible with bookings, and I can still change things if I want to.

I think I'm ok with the cruise. I was really excited about the itinerary but it was a little pricey, $1650 for 5 days and the January one I'm thinking of moving it to is $1027 for 5 days so that's a big savings.

So Alison, my official DL dates will be 9/3-9/9.

Thanks for listening
