Woohoo!. Remember you can get in the park 15 minutes before your reservation. Use that time for some good photo's/video on main street before the park opens.

Beverly of a Monday. Worked 7:30a to 6:30 last night non-stop....no lunch hour.

Couldn't even leave to pick up my sick DD from school because my co-worker had already left to pick up his DS from school!

On that note - I do ask for your prayers. My DD has a recurring issue and the pediatrician is thinking we may have to go see a specialist. I'll know more tomorrow after the labs come back. She seemed to be in better spirits this morning and went back to school (thank you antibiotic!).

Hope everyone has a great day!
Praying for you and your daughter.

So we're looking at non-Disney ( ) trips for December. We're looking at either a trip to somewhere cold like Vail or Park City, but DW doesn't ski so it seems pointless to me. We're also looking at Aruba. Does anyone have an great family trip ideas for December? DW has tasked me with figuring out where to go, but the cheap guy in my head just keeps yelling "we have annual passes every second of vacation should be spent at Disney."

But did you mention you will be puling her out of school regularly to visit Mickey Mouse? Good luck! Glad it went well.

Ryan,

If I'm not at Disney - I want to be in Aruba. DW and I went there for our honeymoon and long to go back.

Awesome island - friendly people. Great food!

But I understand your dilemma, having AP's and all!

No, that was the team that won. High school defenses know that they should at least cover the other team's receivers.

This is funny. I have been tasked with the same. You do know that you were assigned this task so that in the event everyone has less fun than Disney that it is your fault for planning the vacation, right? We have had numerous, "I want to go somewhere other than Disney" discussions. My response is always to go ahead and book it and we'll go. Response back is always- Because you always book the vacations. But we all know the real reason. Everyone will say they would have rather done Disney and it is my fault.

With that said, Aruba is a great spot if you enjoy swimming and the beach. The weather is always awesome. The Florida Keys is nice in December if you want to stay in the US.

If you want to use those passes, how about California. You could do San Diego or San Fran with a side trip to DL for a couple of days. Satisfying, yet slimy. You get to make that cheap guy happy, stay warm and do stuff other than Disney. I think I just solved my problem as well. Woo-hoo!

Our rule for non Disney vacations are, go south in the winter and go north in the summer.

Thanks for the feedback on Aruba. Which resort did you stay in? This is our first year with AP's and I don't know how many more times we'll get them. Makes me really want to use em while we got em.

We've done the Keys and San Diego/Anahiem. La Jolla was really beautiful and we all enjoyed DL and DCA. Those are both great suggestions because we enjoyed them both.

I'm pretty sure catalytic converters aren't necessary I can just shove a rolled up sock in the exhausted pipe the next time I go for an inspection.

We stopped in Aruba on a cruise and it was one of my favorite stops. Beautiful beaches, good food, and casinos. All wins in my book! One word of advice, if you are taking a rental to see the natural pool.. rent a jeep not a tracker and bring water.
