I'm trying to catch up but not every page is loading :-/ signal is spotty on the interstate. Our stop-over was a welcome break (I hate being cramped up in the car) we stayed at a Fairfield Inn which was really nice. DH and DD were so excited they were drinking hot cocoa in the lobby at 1.30am whilst I was sleeping haha. We set off an hour ago and Agnes (she's our gps) says we have 1hr 25 left. She can be quite bossy, that's when I call her Nagnes . Quoting is too much of a pain on the phone sorry. @Lcaemom sorry to hear about the accident but so glad no-one was hurt. @mom2travel so cool you got to meet cybrkitn!!! I hope I meet some of you! @tofubeast how are you feeling today? Hope you're getting better xx @everyone else, hope you are all well and I miss you x

I took today off to get this all dealt with...right now, nothing more I can do but, just wait.
I told the kids...just 6 more hours and you're all on vacation...I need to try to get back to that mode. I have my Starbucks and I don't go back to work until 12/20!!!
So, getting back to the Disney plans...were at T minus 44.5hours!
First things first...another proposal clue...DBF said that he has a FedEx delivery coming today...he has tracked it and it is on the truck and will be delivered before 3pm and will require a siggie and that I can NOT open it!!!! He asked if I would not go out...and to please wait for this delivery, as it could change the fate of our entire vacation!
We had looked at engagement rings on Amazon a few weeks and I added this ring to my wishlist...and got a notification the other day that it is no longer available....Hmmmmmmmm COULD IT BE???????
Gorgeous!!!! I hope it's that!!!

Not sure of the room category as we paid for a King room.....our view looks beautiful so I will venture to say it's a Garden view. REally excited to see the resort!

We're in a RR Have a great trip!

I need some advice here - I've been contemplating in the last few days whether I should surprise DBf with an upgrade from POP to POFQ. DBf is a big fan of POP, especially the food court. But the queen size beds at POFQ sounds too good to pass on! I'm not sure if he'll like the food choices and the decor at POFQ. It will cost us $300 if we upgrade but I can't help but thinking that the upgrade costs as much as two 1-day ticket to US/IOA and a ticket to MVMCP (we will be going to both MVMCP and US/IOA so we already spending a lot of extra $$). What should i do?
I would stick with Pop. You know DBF likes it, and you aren't sure about POFQ. Also, you are right, that's a LOT of extra money when you've already laid you a lot extra for US/IOA and MVMCP. I'd save a moderate resort for another trip when you don't have so much going on!

Well, I just got an email from Alamo and curiosity got the best of me, so I clicked it and saved $60 on my car rental. (The other rental was with Dollar which made me a little nervous, anyway). Looks like the rates have really dropped now that I'm less than a week out, so if you haven't left yet, might want to take a look at your car rental ressie. I couldn't believe how cheap it was.

Subscribed to it! I'm going to start loading my trip pictures (all 2000 of them!!!) onto Photobucket tonight so I can start my TR. I'll post my link there once I start it, as well as some of my favorite pics and tips from my trip to help those going later this month!

Thanks for the advice M&MGirl! I know I should be grateful for a last minute trip and I should not be greedy! I will have to make a decision latest by the end of this weekend when I have to order the botteled water from staples.

I agree. I debated a similar switch for months!! Actually, up until I got laid off 3 weeks ago, I was still considering switching to POR. The queen beds would be nice. That is my biggest issue with POP. But I have heard how great the food court, CMs and busses are so I think we will be happy with Pop. If you already know you like Pop, I would stick with that.

So excited you are almost there! I also have my GPS named! He's Finn and he's Australian.

I am feeling a bit better today. Went to the clinic this morning and got some stuff to take care of it. At least I tested negative for strep and it's not the flu. Just some post nasal drip action! FUN!! Hoping to feel better before we go in TWO days. Yikes!

Have fun! Can't wait to hear about your trip!

I only have four more days of work (counting today) until we leave for Disney World! I'm going to leave right from work next Wednesday, so I'm sure I'm going to be super jumpy. Ha!

However, tomorrow I have to be out the door by 4:30am to catch a plane to Michigan for the weekend. Blah!!!

Haha! We usually take the Megabus there, but there were cheapish flights and my partner's mom was buying.
