I've been doing the same thing with my DH too.
Hmm. I think I need to quickly get a countdown chain going, maybe that will get him excited. I didn't do a chain figuring the kids already were excited, but to get hubby excited...SO worth it! LOL

So, no free dining for us, but still getting a wonderful discount.
Holy cow!!! 50% off!!! I need to get friends like that. Lucky you.

I love the idea of a count down chain to get those stubborn men in our lives involved
I'd have to hide ours though if we did it because its a surprise trip for the kids.

I am also very LUCKY and BLESSED to have a college roommate and his wife who are cast members, and they're helping us with our November trip (40% off - O.M.G.!!!) I will be closing on my house at the end of October, so this trip HAS to be on the low-budget side of things. Like you said, no free dining, but the savings sure does make it worth it!!

I'm sure I'll have my friend help in 2015 - that's when I've decided to FINALLY stay at either Polynesian or Contemporary for my 40th anniversary of Disney World vacations (1st visit in 1975!)

Woo hoo!!

The way my day is going, 60 or 61 wouldn't matter. I am planning to leave for the airport anytime now and my counter says 68. A sleeping bag waiting for my flight would be better than dealing with this situation.

What is most frustrating about today is I'm afraid it's going to effect my leaving in November. PLEASE!!!

Maybe when DH gets home I'll hand him a suitcase and say, let's leave now and drive down.

Ok thanks for letting me vent!
I'm better now.
