    Today, our dedicated TA, Johnie, was able to rebook our vacation - with the free dining offer! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: All while on her OWN vacation! (Thanks, again!) I LOVE the fun of booking things on my own, but with my work schedule lately - Johnie has proved INVALUABLE!

    We saved over $1500 with this offer! DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MANY SLUSHY DRINKS AND MARGARITAS THAT IS?!?!?! :tralala: :tralala:

    While I'm here, I thought I'd share a birthday surprise I booked for Andrew (shhhhhhhhhhhh!). As most of you know, Andrew truly has a heart for all things Disney. "Nature vs. Nurture" be damned, I think he'd have found his way to Disney with or without me.

    On a whim, I called Disney Dining to ask if there was any availability for the "Dine with an Imagineer" lunch, something Andrew has always been interested in doing, especially at the Brown Derby (one of Andrew's favorite places).

    Well, GUESS WHAT???

    He's booked!!! September 25th @ 11:30 at the Brown Derby!! He is going to be so EXCITED!!

    Does anyone want to lay odds as to whether or not I make it to September without telling him?

    The best thing about it is...that's not even the MOST exciting thing we're doing that day!!!! Stay tuned!

    Sounds like a great birthday for Andrew. Brown Derby has really improved lately IMHO.

    Thank you! It is truly selfishness on my part. I love the thrill of telling people I've managed to get a discount and booking hard to get things. It's fun :)

    I absolutely loved Dine with an Imagineer. Andrew is going to have such an awesome time.

    I've given thought to posting it on the Facebook "Event" page I created and just seeing if he notices :D
