    Hello Everyone! :wave: I haven't posted or even visited the site for over a year. It's been too depressing having to cancel trip after trip because of one thing or another. (The past few years have taken a toll on our family)

    But FINALLY it is official, and barring any unforeseen, terrible, horrifying crisis...I AM GOING BACK TO DISNEY WORLD!!!:yes:

    We've not been since 2008 and I have been wanting to go back soooo very badly. We are booked for November 1-7th at POR...our first time at a moderate.:thumbsup:

    Hoping to also hit IoA to do WWHP if we can work it. Want to do as much as possible since this may be our last chance in a while. Jordan will be nearly 16 and adulthood is lurking.:unsure:

    So...just wanted to share my wonderful news. Anyone else going to be there in November?

    Took care of that for you! :D

    So happy for you to be able to be headed back to WDW. You've had a heck of a year and I can't think of anyone who more deserves a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! :yes:

    :thumbsup:Thanks for fixing me up, Tink!

    And Isafari...notice the countdown. :wiggle:

    It's so nice to be back and have such a warm welcome.:yes:

    And today I have even MORE good news. Checked out flights yesterday and was not happy. Prices have gone way up and it looked like it was going to be around $900 or so for the 3 of us. :eek3:

    But this morning I got an email from AirTran...SALE!!
    :bounce:
    I just bought tickets for the 3 of us for less than $600.
    :happybounce:

    Things seem to be going my way this time.

    I actually booked way back in March...got an awesome postcard PIN code and Johnie got me booked (in spite of Disney's denial that said postcard existed...everyone here knows Johnie is AWESOME that way). :wavehands: I've just been afraid to believe it was real this time.

    Lol Disney was adamant that there was no such postcard. I think they just gave me the discount to get me off the phone lol

    Yes, Donna...sure seems like forever. We're leaving for VA next Wednesday and will be there through July 7th...maybe we could squeeze in a mini-meet for dinner or something. Not sure how much time I'll have yet. Marcus' mom passed away December 2010 and we've done next to nothing with her house in Vienna...Marcus' sister moved in and was keeping it as a shrine...wouldn't let us touch anything.

    And now his sister passed away in April...we're coming down for her memorial service on 6/30 and we're hoping to get some work done on the house. But I may really need a cocktail to make it through the week.

    Ok...New itinerary to take advantage of the FREE dining plan.

    11/1 Thursday Arrival early afternoon...heading to MK with dinner at Crystal Palace (a 1st for us) at 3:50pm and sticking around to see MSEP and Wishes,

    11/2 Friday Off to EPCOT for the day with lunch at Le Cellier at 2:40pm. Then back to MK in the evening for MNSSHP.

    11/3 Saturday All day at AK with dinner at Tusker House (1st time) at 5:15pm

    11/4 Sunday EPCOT for the day with dinner at Coral Reef at 4:20pm.

    11/5 Monday Off to DHS with a mid afternoon lunch/dinner at Sci-Fi (1st time) at 3:20pm. Fantasmic!

    11/6 Tuesday is our undecided day. Would love to try to go to Harry Potter at IoA. We have a LATE dinner scheduled at Ohana at 9:15pm but not sure we're going to keep it. Was the only time I could get ALL week, but not sure we want to eat that late.

    11/7 Wednesday Headed home in late afternoon...may head to DTD for some shopping. No ADRs planned.

    Any comments or advise?

    I hope you enjoy Tusker House as much as we did. :yes:

    I'm not a fan of 'Ohana, so I'd be changing that one. :)

    Enjoy!!!!

    Figment....I think you will be so happy with the choices...Sorry Sister Tink, we kind of like Ohana...cousin...hehe

    Now about the teenage thing...if yours is anything like mine..you still have some time there. DD wanted to spend her 21st birthday not in a bar, or beach hanging out with her friends (not that she doesn't) but with her mom, and dad at WDW....so hang in there.

    Oh yes, many folks so love 'Ohana. Just commenting that we don't care for it.

    Oh, and Dan, that's "col ceathrar!" ;)
