Looks like a pretty solid itinerary to me! It's too bad we are going to just miss each other!

I think it's a good mix of rest, fun, and alone time w/DH.

He absolutely loved how our trip went last time, so we'll try to recreate that as much as possible!

So....do I????

Those of you following along already know that I have some severe resort changing tendencies.

I will tell you that I am very happy with our current reservations ~ ahem ~ YC CL, in case you forgot...which wouldn't be hard...

But, I do admit to calling CRO last night to check on availability of Poly CL...is that bad??? Should I just let it go??? Thus far, there is no GV room Poly CL available under the military discount - only TPV. Maybe this is a good thing, a sign even....why can't I leave well enough alone....

I have the urge to just.keep.checking....

Someone tell me to stop, someone tell me it's done...I think I need therapy.

Your plan for YC CL looks great. I've crossed paths with you for a while on these boards as I am a Poly CL lover. I know from what I have read that you really are drawn to the Poly. I envision your family fitting very well at the resort--CL or not. But I can see you having the ultimate vacation in the Hawaii building--Wishes every night of your trip!! Whatever you decide, you seem like a wonderful person and I hope you have a fabulous vacation!

Aww Shucks, Thanks!!!

Yes, we have crossed paths quite a bit!

I have to admit that I was shocked when I saw a post of yours the other day about switching to an AKL villa! I know what a proponent of Poly CL you are!

We'll get there one day...I suppose it doesn't hurt to keep checking, does it...and if it's meant to be, it will be...

You'll know when the time is right and when it is I am sure you will love it.

We stayed in the CL building 2 trips in a row. Poly regular GV rooms several times before those stays. The rooms are spacious no doubt. The lounge area is a bonus and we need the space. But, 10 nights with 5 people in a room still gets a little close for comfort as the kids get older. And, in August it will be nice to have the washer/dryer in room. We are trading, space, laundry and new resort for CL. Believe me, it was not an easy choice. But, I am actually looking forward to it now.

For a family of 5, I think the villas are an awesome option. I'm sure you will appreciate the extra space to spread out. I can't wait to hear how you like it!

How did you know I was on it????

No seriously...I am at work, it is MLK day, very sloooooooooow....I had to occupy the time!!!

Still no Poly GV CL available....and I am fine. YC CL lives to see another day!

On another note, I made another ADR (for a Captains Grille breakfast one morning), and I did it through the new website (first time using new website to make a reservation)....Love how it shows up in my reservation list 7 times....

All the same details....just shows up seven times. I won't even bother to be annoyed by that...

I know! I've heard such great things about their breakfast, so I'm going to give it a go! I'm actually excited to have a meal where there aren't characters coming to the table every 5 minutes.

My Dorky Updates!!!!

Well, I can say with almost 100% certainty that I will be sticking with YC CL!!!!

The reasons for this may be considered laughable:

The main reason is that tour dates were announced for
THE PACKAGE TOUR

What is the Package Tour??? Well, one thing I did not disclose is that at 34 years old, I am still a HUGE NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK FAN!!!

Yeah, I enjoy "Hangin' Tough" and having "The Right Stuff"

In summer of 2011, my girlfriends and I went to two concerts in one week!!!

And today, NKOTB (yeah, I just used the abbreviation) announced tour dates for this summer, and we are going to buy tickets for the 5/31 show at Mohegan Sun!!!!

So...basically the $500 that it would cost me to upgrade to the Poly is now going to feul my Donnie Wahlberg obsession...the obsession I've had since I was 10 years old. Yay!!!!!


On another note, last month we refinanced our house for the 2nd time down to a 2.75% fixed interest rate...and we just got our escrow disbursement check today, to the tune of $1500!!!! Now, our spending money for Disney is all taken care of!!!!

Today is a good day...
