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!
Yes get better soon! I've been sick the entire trip - horrible sinus/throat/cough issues. Basically to make sure I'm ok I've been taking Advil cold & sinus every few hours... Not my style but I'm in Disney!!!!

So we went to MK today. It's busier than it was earlier in the week... We did enchanted tales with belle... Soooo awesome!!! We were going to go last night but it was so crowded at the gate we resort hopped/explored.

I really don't want to leave

We have done Hotwire a few times- never an issue and have ended up with Alamo most of the time!

That's awesome you were able to take advantage of the PP+.

I debated for weeks on whether or not I should prepurchase the PP+ and I'm kinda glad now that I didn't.

I looked at the few pics yesterday that we took using PP and out of 31 pics on my card, only 12 are of me and DBF! The rest are of other people/families! Imagine my surprise when I loaded the card and up pops pics of apparently long-lost cousins and their children! Like who knew this Hispanic girl had middle-eastern and asian blood!? joking of course, but clearly, they're not us!

Good thing that for every PP stop we made I asked them to use my camera also and they happily obliged... so not all is lost...

We named ours Steve.

So, 3 days to go, and my right foot is freaking out and hurting so badly I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I had surgery on that foot a few years ago and it is NOT happy right now. Why now?!?!

I suppose it's also good to keep a separate listing of each card and it's number along with it's special code in case one is lost or stolen. You need to keep the receipt if that's the case and they can be canceled and reissued. Any way, it kept me busy for a good 30 minutes and kept my mind from going nuts in anticipation. I'm going to go get 2 more cards later today just to have for "extras". That way pretty much everything will be paid for without having to use the kind of plastic that charges you interest if you don't pay it off at the end of the month.
And that reminds me - I need to run by Target to get another couple gift cards! I'm going to feel like an idiot standing there making the poor CM at the front desk add all these cards to our room account, but it saves me money so I don't particularly care!!! Although, I paid for all the GC plastic with "the other" kind of plastic to get the last 100 points I needed to get a $50 rewards credit, which will also help pay for the trip. No worries though, that rewards card is the FIRST thing that gets paid off at the end of every month!

Great to hear this! I went ahead and booked with Hotwire and got Alamo, which I'm very happy about. I've used them several times at MCO before. AND that's $110 extra I now have in spending money for our trip!!!

On a side note - I've noticed those emails are so random. Sometimes I don't get one at all and other times I get them days in advance. Really screwy.

An Excellent idea! The last 2 trips I planned to do a TR, but never got up the steam to start it...

So glad everyone is (relatively) ok. And I hope your adrenaline has settled from the scare!

Absolutely, it's vacation in FL!!
I never want to even think about the trip once it's over. Hoping this will motivate me to write stuff down. That will be helpful for scrapping later.

I don't know why I bother with my hair. There's fog every morning at RD so it's pointless. Trying to repair it now for the evening.
