we might not have childcare now for our anniversary trip

so we may bring them with us.

My ds (7) is so cute, he told me I could take the money out of his piggy bank to pay a babysitter when I was crying after my parents said they didn't want to watch them.

Hope all works out and you still have a nice trip.

I'm sorry about your parents, Fliminivanmama. That really stinks.

Ds's 5th bday is in 2 wks! Woo Hoo! He was all set to have a Secret Agent Party, but then yesterday he changed his mind to Peter Pan after watching it tuesday night. He's also decided he needs a Peter Pan costume to wear both at his party and at wdw. Only 81 days to go!

I am back! We had a great time and everything worked out well with the kids. They ddi great. I am so grateful to BIL and SIL for watching them. When we go to WDW and DCL in may we are getting them a room with points the night we get off the boat and got them AP rates for the nights before the cruise. Sorry you had some stress over who was going to watch yours.

I wrote a trip report on it, but it is rather long to post here. If you want to see it just PM me.

Long story short almost everything went great. Good weather, good timing and luck with things. pretty low crowds. Board Walk Villas was great. The only down side is we both ended up with sinus infections/bronchitis the whole trip. It was a virus that we thought was getting better and started getting worse when it was too late to do anything about it until we got back. We were at the Doc the next morning after we got home. DH is doing better, it is holding on a bit longer for me. We did bring meds and such with us and it didn't stop us too much. We still had a great time, but the flight was difficult on my ears.

It really was strange being there with out the kids, but we enjoyed ourselves. I think we might of missed them more then they did us. I felt the need to tell people we had kids, but this was our trip. Man it is so much easier traveling with just adults though. We both were amazed every step of the way how easy it was.

We loved the keys to the kingdom tour and were able to do all the things we can't with the kids and enjoy 3 great sit down meals. It was wonderful.

Have a wonderful time, you and DH deserve a great break.

We really had a lot of fun. DD thought the haunted house was a comedy ride... she laughed and giggled the whole way through. She hated the Buzz Lightyear ride. She loved Pirates. One of the nice things was she could go on most of the rides so we could go together.

We learned that things that go woosh scare her ala the doors on the monorail and flushing toilets. I nursed her in the mei tai in the line for the monorail and on it. I also nursed her in the line and on Pirates, but she very quickly decided she wanted to see the show. I nursed her all over the parks.

Sometimes the lines were awful, then they were fine. We re-rode small world because the line was so short. We dang near walked on the haunted mansion, then went and rode the Winnie the Pooh ride, which we also nearly walked on, to come back and fine a 45 minute line for the haunted mansion.

I'm ready to go again! Maybe next time we will try WDW.

We went to WDW once in august and we were pretty miserable. Never say never, but we don't see ourselves going back during summer months again any time soon. It might have just been a really bad /rainy summer (I think it was 2003.) Still we stick to winter or early spring months.

flminivanmama isn't your trip soon. Have a wonderful and magical time and stay healthy! :

since this is an "adult" trip LOL

any special suggestions for drinks in EPCOT? I've been gathering some from you know where... but figured I'd ask here too.

plan to have a drink and or a snack and or a candy in each country

and am also planning on doing half the countries one day and half the second so as not to make ourselves sick

I've been twice to WDW and once to Disneyland in the summer. It was bad. Bad bad bad. Never again.

We're trying to decide between the last week in November (2008) and the first week in December.

Hello! Major Disney fanatic here. We have Disneyland APs and go at least once a week.

I haven't been to WDW yet, but I am hoping to plan a trip for next year. DD really wants to go, and so do I. We are thinking April/May or October.

60 more days!!!! Yahoo!

Ds woke up this morning and climbed into bed with me and spent the next 15 minutes hugging me and telling me about the dream he had-about WDW. I feel like the next 60 days will never ever pass. We need to get away in a major friggin' way around here.

So here's a question...What's a good way to get a case of water into the world? We're staying on site, flying in and using DME. We won't rent a vehicle. I really am opposed to paying 2.50 per bottle, since we are HUGE water drinkers.

Also, (and I suppose I could post this on the "namesake" forums, but I'm very intimidated by them for some reason) when should I get my Disney Visa rewards transfered or whatever that is?

http://gardengrocer.com/ - they charge a $12 delivery fee

http://shop.goodings.com/ - min. $50 order plus $20 delivery fee

There are probably others, but those two have both gotten good reviews. They will deliver water/food/snacks to your hotel room.

You may want to check if they are in the area or if they deliver to the hotels, but Albertsons delivers.

Oh, and at Disneyland a 20 ounce bottle of soda/water is 2.79

I don't belive they do. We used them in Jan and had great service. I highly recomend them (it was 10$ delivery fee then.) The prices are pretty good too. I gave a tip on top because I thought they did great, and we had a big order.

I was reading [edited to avoid UA violation: somewhere else] about nursing toddlers and using Diva Cups and wondered how many of the posters were MDC mamas!

I am planning a girls only trip for next April with DD and my mother. I will attempt to make reservations for breakfast at Cinderella's castle, making the call at 7:00 am 180 days in advance - has anyone tried to get these ADRs? Is it as difficult as I am expecting?

...psst it is against the UA to talk about other boards, period, that is how we lost our last threads.

As for Disney Rewards, there are places on site where you can cash them in.
