So, last night I started working on a shirt. It's a "hand me up" - my oldest got the shirt when we were in Disney in '09 and it doesn't fit anymore so I pulled it out of his "donate" pile and kept it! Hope this link works: Tower of Terror shirt The design had some cracks in it from wear so I used some white fabric paint to touch it up and I'm planning on going over it with glow in the dark paint. Not sure how good it'll turn out, but it seemed like a fun idea!
I always refer to it as a dumb phone.

I love that shirt.

Im trying to add myself to the resort list- and failing miserably. Could someone help me? When I try to add my info and click submit, it tells me that my response is too short---story of my life

1st of all there are NO dumb questions on this Team! I just recd a personalized brochure yesterday- a booklet, if you will. Themed in Toy Story style. Pretty cute! Kind of bummed I didnt get any luggage tags, since our ressies are all room-onlys. I will have to use my old ones

Meanwhile I am back to trying to talk my DH into a Value resort. I would love to stay at AKL and I see his point of view that we haven't gone anywhere in a long time and its my first time so we should go all out, but I'm just worried the money thing will dampen my spirits. I got the credit card statement yesterday...

I am in on joining a facebook group too. That will be an easy way to share pics!
I've been throwing things into a duffle bag that I know I won't need until vacay but don't want to forget! And seriously, my kids have not put their clean laundry away for a week- I may just start throwing their clothes into a suitcase just to keep their rooms neat!

I can see both sides of your argument- it would be awesome to stay at AKL. And you totally deserve a wonderful vacation!! Check into moderate resorts if you really are going to worry about the money- POR or POFQ are gorgeous, romantic places to stay if you both decide to switch. (I'm always on the "go all out" and deal with the consequences later side though. True story. )

Good idea about your kid's clothes.

I thought about a moderate but it wouldn't save us much money. The AKL room is discounted because its a non-view room and makes it literally only 5 dollars more than POFQ and 15 or 20 more than POR which would be my choice of Moderate. So I decided that moving down to a moderate wouldn't be worth it. ASMu however would save us over $600. I know it would be smaller and less romantic but saving $600+ would sure make me feel better. But my husband will probably not go for it. He wants to stay in the Contemporary so he feels he is already compromising on a non-view AKL room. I wonder where he got his champagne taste...

That is why MY husband does not have the checkbook either!

I guess I should just do it and deal with the consequences later. That's not like me, but who knows when/if we'll ever go again.

Doesn't work LOL! Last time I had everything packed a week before and had a crazy amount of lists. I still packed until 1/2am the night before and then the last hour before we left I was still repacking. I am awful! Keep thinking of stuff and jumping up to do it.

Hahahaha - I would probably be the one to switch to a Value to save $600. I actually had a way to get us into SSR for only an extra $200+. It was a UK deal and my brother lives there and I figured he could help us make the payment, etc. I wavered for a long time and finally decided to save the $200. Also, we could have gotten a mod for an extra $200 but again I decided to save the money. Figure $200 is enough for a frugal overnight trip - and I love our weekend trips!

Wow this thread really is moving fast! I'm trying to keep up with everyone's ADRs so I apologize if I missed anyone's posts. Feel free to PM me, that might be easier.

Also, as I'm adding more times, I'm noticing a LOT of similar ADRs so be sure to check and see who you might be dining with!!

DS wants me to add CRT (he loves anywhere that he can actually talk to the characters and have them talk back, plus he's kind of a sucker for attention from lovely ladies ) and after seeing a great family video on youtube, he wants to go to 50s PTC, although I don't think he'll eat anything there. :-\
