We are booked!

We were able to officially switch everything over this morning to June now. We will be there from June 7th - June 13th. We are staying at the Coronado Springs again and booked a King Bed. We are hoping for the same building again because it was close to the dig site pool, and close to a bus stop but we don't know if they have the king beds in specific buildings or not.

I have our touring plans set to a degree but we are going to keep it kind of low key as well because it will be warm and humid and I know we will need more breaks this trip than in Jan. I will post our touring plans later along with the ADR's we chose.

Off to work on laundry right now though. Be back later.

changes yet again

So due to some various reasons we have decided to take our trip in June for Star Wars weekends. We will be going from June 7th - June 14th. The pricing is about $750 cheaper than we were looking at in October. We know our shifts now compared to October and there is the possibility of black out due to a release. So with that said, we have a crazy couple of months ahead of us. Here's the newest ticker.

We are booked!

We officially booked today after getting our deposit back for the cruise. We are going from Oct 22nd - Oct 29th. We are staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort.

It's so exciting to think I will get to go to Disney right after my birthday. It will definitely be a memorable trip. So excited to see the party for Halloween and taste the yumminess of the food and wine festival.

As we make our plans I will be sure to update here. Not much else to report on. I was sick from Friday to yesterday. I had a horrible cough and slight fever, achy and just felt like crud. We went to the Dr and turns out I had a sinus infection and an upper respiratory infection. They put me on an antibiotic and some strong cough meds that have a decongestant in it as well. I'm feeling much better today after I got some good sleep for a change.

That's about it for now.

Food & Wine Festival and Mickey's Halloween Party!

So I'm sure you are curious what plans we made with removing the countdown for the cruise and this title.

We did some talking and decided that since this will be the last big vacation we take for over a year that we wanted to do something bigger than a cruise to places we have already been numerous times already.

We tossed around the idea of flying to Florida and taking Disney's new ship the Fantasy and going to the East Caribbean. We also looked into the opportunity to go to the Food & Wine Festival that Epcot has and also go to the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party instead. Well as the title says it, we chose another trip back to Disney after comparing pricing on both. We are going to stay at the Caribbean Beach Resort this time. So it gives us a chance to check out a different resort. Woot!

We were discussing things we know for sure we want to book for dining reservations as those will open up in two months. Hard to believe that.

We know we are going to do Kona again for breakfast and we want to try it for dinner. We are also going to try and book O'Hana for dinner and possibly look into the Spirit of Olaha Show at the poly for dinner as well.

We are thinking of having one day that we spend just at the hotel and utilize the resort pool all day and then go to downtown Disney for dinner that night and Disney Quest.

We know we will get tickets for the Halloween party one night that we are there as that is a separate ticket. So excited for this. We are going to put we are celebrating birthdays as well since mine will be that month and Ian's will have been the month before.

I have a bit of time before I will start planning out our days at which parks. We are thinking of going a Monday to a Monday this time because it's cheaper for airfare and going the Monday after my birthday and coming back the following Monday.It will be a little difficult as we generally will do a shift swap in August/Sept so no idea what our shifts will be so I will likely put in vacation requests when Oct becomes available with what my shift is currently and then just change the dates once we get the official shifts in the future.

We know we are going to take a week and a few days this time again as well. Probably the day before and two days after we fly back unless we just naturally have like Mon/Tuesday off...Only time will tell in the future.

So if anyone wants more information regarding the trip let us know. We are always game for others to possibly join us.

That's all for now.

Back to reality

What better way to come back to reality than booking the next vacation. We booked today for the Disney Magic cruise out of Galveston, TX that will set sail on October 27th. We decided to go the cheaper route and just booked an inside category. We booked the highest in the category but it was around 800 cheaper and that money can go a long way. Our cruise will take us to Grand Cayman, Costa Maya and Cozumel. We are only going to do an excursion in Grand Cayman with going to 7 mile beach this time. We have always done an excursion to the stingray city sandbar but not this time. We are all about relaxing on the beautiful beaches here and partake in some shopping. We plan on staying on the ship in Costa Maya and then will take in the shopping in Cozumel some. Then spend most of the time on the ship just soaking it all in. I plan on doing an update regarding our recent trip soon. I will post pictures as well but just haven't wanted to sit and take the time to do it yet.

Removed countdown calendar as we changed our plans....
