Google maps says 28 minutes. I kinda wish we were flying out of Newark because I know that airport so well, and when the Holland tunnel is moving along easily, it only takes 20 minutes to get there from the apartment.

Oh well, I'll probably just switch the pickup time to 5:00 or 5:15 and be done with it. We'll likely end up having extra time at the airport, but DS is excited about the airport in general because it's a new one to add to his list.

Happy Birthday!!!

I'm having a hard time keeping up with you all!! That darned work thing has me away from the Dis, can you believe that? Ugh! So, if I don't comment on something one of you has said, please know that I've read it and am thinking about you guys. I just don't seem to be able to comment on it all!!

I have 28 days to go. I'm going to start packing some stuff tonight using the ultimate packing list from Mousesavers. No Mickey Mail yet, though.

Oh, and I just looked at the resort list and I'm not on it.

I'm staying at Carribean Beach Resort August 17th through the 28th. I know One Bad Apple is also staying there. Can we be added please??? Thanks.

I think 5:30 should be good. Assuming you leave at 5:40 that puts you at the airport at 6:10-6:15 (again assuming minimal traffic at that hour), giving you a good 90+ minutes.

ADRs....these still need some work as I need to add some breakfasts. Not too worried about it though because we always seem to be able to walk in to Captain's Grille, and CRT is so crazy expensive that it's a lot more available now. (Remember when it was easier to win Powerball than get a CRT ADR???)

8/25
Jiko 7:30pm

8/26
Captain's Grille 8:00am
California Grill 5:55pm

8/27
Tusker House 9:30am
Brown Derby 5:30pm

8/28
Akershus 9:30pm

8/29
Crystal Palace 9:30am

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. :-\

Yep....I have the monorail "stay away from the handrails" speech and "Part of Your World" from Little Mermaid

Doesn't mean I wouldn't, if I felt I'd be getting a better deal, but with the tips I've gotten from the DisBoards, I think it would be a close call
I have booked myself and then transferred the reservation to my TA. There's a slight discount and she usually ends up having something delivered to our resort for us. It's cute, but yeah, I do all the ADR's etc. I'm a control freak!

QOTD #2 A Disney phone ring tone on my cell phone? I don't even own a cell phone. I spend 12 hours a day at work and the other 12 at home if I'm not at one try me at the other therefor I don't need a cell phone. I do have a ton of Disney music and podcasts on my iPod.
I wish my husband didn't have one sometimes! I text way more than talk on mine ~ usually it's one of my boys needs a ride home and I'll get wherever and text to say "parked out front" or whatever, LOL.

I still have a dumbphone and I'm cheap so I get my free ringtones off phonezoo. Doesn't have everything under the sun but I've found plenty to make me happy.

Too funny! When we were visiting family in March, my sister in law handed her brand new iphone to my 14 yr old son and said "teach me!"

Happy Birthday! Today is my hubby's birthday too ~ he hasn't been home for his birthday since 2006 with all the deployments! I just realized I have to make him a cake...but if I leave the computer I'll get too far behind!

Too funny! I didn't realize other people refer to their phone as a dumb phone too! I'm totally with you on not being able to justify the cost! I figure I'm a stay at home mom so it would definitely be a want, not a need in any way. While other parents play on their phone at soccer practice, I play games or watch movies on my Ipod Touch.


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!

29 days for me and no Mickey Mail either. I was thinking of starting packing too kinda. I bought special socks that are really thin yet have some cushioning too and I don't want to wear them before the trip so pairs don't go missing. So I wanted to stick them in a suitcase to keep them safe.

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!

Oops forgot to mention I don't have any Disney ringtones. I have to use a regular ringer type of ringer because my hearing is odd. Whenever I have a ringtone that is a real song I don't hear it if the TV or radio is on. Not sure what type of hearing problem that is.
