Oh and BTW, my ME tags finally came today!!

I actually got them a few months ago (because I called ME directly) but my flight numbers changed so I had to order them again. I was getting nervous because now we are less than 4 weeks ago so that's a relief!

I also pre-ordered my photopass CD this morning so now all I have to do is transfer my reward $$......and a list of about 87 other things.....

Already went to my parents house in Jersey for 10 days. My boys stayed there for an extra 10 days and then my sister brought them home. She was here for 4 days and left but my nephew stayed here and we haven't figured out when he's going back yet. No plans to go anywhere else...I think. My bestest girlfriend's husband got orders back to Camp Lejeune, NC after spending 3 years in Okinawa so we plan to get together one weekend, just not sure when and where yet. Her oldest is heading off to college so it probably won't be until the fall.

Sent a join request. Thanks for setting it up!

DH & I went out to lunch at Cheeseburger in Paradise ~ yummy! I'd never been there before. I think the restaurant is 8 miles or so from my house. We walked out of there and it was really cloudy but still pretty bright. By the time we got home, it was thunder/lightning/downpouring.

I really want something small and light. And cheap. Anyone have any other suggestions? Or want to go halfsies with me on a set of 10?
These are great! I have a couple from conferences I stashed away for that very purpose! I would double check what you buy though as I've been on many a convention where the strings snap when stuff that is too heavy is put in. But many work - I know I usually throw my cellphone in one of those.

For our last trip, I didn't have this and just used a regular name badge holder for my kids.Doesn';t have zippered pockets, but works just fine for the KTTW and Photopass. I needed something bigger and used a tiny crossbody purse. On our cruise, I just got lanyards, got holes punched in our cards and we wore them that way. More than likely I will go this route for my kids as they want to wear their pins on lanyards anyway.

I'm having ADR indecision right now as well! I just added Beaches and Cream to my plans. I think we'll have the Kitchen Sink for dinner!! Then we're headed to DtD for DisneyQuest and will fill up later with apps at Planet Hollywood with our $15 voucher. I'm debating intensely with myself whether or not to keep my 8:15am ADR at Tusker House. At this point...I probably will just keep it mostly because if not, i'll be waiting outside the park for RD anyway.

We already went on our annual trip to Gulf Shores Alabama. So the only trip we have planned is our August Disney trip which the kids think we are going on another beach trip.

Wow this thread moves, must be AUGUST in the air

Living in an election swing state, I have to say I will NOT miss the horrible political attack ads from both sides that are constantly running in Ohio. Looking forward to escaping from those next month

DVC is definitely worth it if you go to WDW once a year or more.

The only thing we have planned that is fun is that we are members at our local pool. The kids and I spend 3 days out of the week there trying to get nice tans for our upcoming trip in 39 days . Unless something comes up unexpectedly, then I would say we probably won't be really doing anything until our trip. This past weekend we took our girls to an indoor water park resort for 2 nights (it was my DD9's B-day weekend and we took her there instead of having a party), and then in June my kids were visiting their grandparents who live 3 hours away for 2 weeks, so during one of the weekends, DH and I decided to do a spur of a moment trip to Disney which we have not yet told the kids and we probably won't either .

Who is doing photo pass? I was considering a share on another board but I am apprehensive about sending my money to a stranger and them having control of my photos online. I have a great camera and CM have taken some great pics with it so I hesitate to spend the $. Last time we had 8-10 pics on photo pass cards. Iseem to never see PP CM and I have never seen in any trip thise special magic shots. I think many of them I have seen of other families are not great anyway.

We always pre order the cd. We started doing it on our honeymoon. It's great when it's just two people! It does seem like a lot of money but when you look at how much just one or two photos cost, the cd is a great deal. Luckily this time I have some family that will coincidently be there at the same time so we're going I share.

We're the same way! No cell phones but we have 2 iPads and an iPod between DH, DD4 and DS6. With lots of podcasts including disboards, disdads for DH, etc...
