    Oh no! Hopefully she gets rested up soon!

    And your weather clears up! Mom's flying in from Midway on Friday....looks like there's snow in the forecast. We're hoping since she's flying midway and not ohare it won't impact her too bad! Or that the snow won't be bad! or both!

    My preparing to be gone from school for a week is a little more complicated - I have to prepare work for the substitute for everyday. Luckily I have 2 great subs covering my class. The other problem is I have to make sure none of the other teachers stow-away in my luggage.
    We have to meet on the cruise, my wife and I are HUGE Goofy fans, in fact we have traveled with our little plush goof around the world and have taken his picture in front of many famous sites (I know, we're crazy).

    Anyway, looking forward to meeting another Goofy fan!! See you real soon.

    Re: It... is... Time! The Final Countdown!

    Well, we leave on Friday and now have just about everything packed and ready to go. First time flying with an infant, so this should be interesting. Trying to use only clothes not going on the trip so to not disturb the packing, hopefully we can make it work then next couple days. Flag is done and door decorations are getting close. These next few days a work are going to be the hardest, tick tock tick tock!!!!

    Let's go!!!!!!

    Don't get me started on Goofy. My license plate is Goofin, and the front plate is from Test Track and says "2GOOFEE". I'll have to bring all my Goofy pins, also. What cabin are you in? We are in 7690. It's always great to meet someone who appreciates the "Goofy" things in life.

    We can meet up at the sail away - I'll be wearing the Deck 7 Cool Kids black t-shirt and the Goofy hat - probably the tall green one.

    My wife isn't as "Goofy" as me, however, she is an enabler of my habit - she purchased many of my items on eBay

    Here are a couple of pictures of my collection. And it all started with a Burger King toy from the Goofy Movie.

    My Goofy costume at school. I wear it every Halloween to hand out candy, and always get lots of pictures taken.

    We are staying at BWV post-cruise. I haven't done the on-line checkin. I'm so so on using it. Since the slide at BW is being rehabbed, we supposedly get to use Storm Along Bay at the Beach Club.

    Paul- what's your hesitation with online check in? We did it for both BWV and BLT last year and loved the time we saved. In both cases we did make special requests and were allowed to check in early and actually get into our rooms.

    Storm along bay at the beach club is neat!..... has an old pirate ship that is a slide.... and there is sand in the bottom of the pool to cushion your fall..... My grandkids had a blast there 18 months ago.... cool place!

    Re: It... is... Time! The Final Countdown!

    Final countdown has final reached 0. About ready to go out the door to the airport. Will be at WDW about 5p depending on Magical Express. Couldn't do the online check-in, the system wouldn't let me do it. I guess I have to do it the old fashion way and wait in line. See everyone soon.

    Not Paul, but I have had 'issues' with online check in.

    At SSR it seems to work just great

    At BCV, it was not good. I checked in on line. Showed up at 11 as I had indicated... at 5 PM I finally asked to see a manager since I had no room and they had no idea WHEN I might get one. Basically with online check in I was "assigned" to a room and would never be "moved" to the first available there even though I had been there for hours. So folks who just walked in after me got a room while I waited and waited and waited. Turns out the folks in "my" room damaged it and apparently I was just suppose to wait until it was fixed. Manager did move me immediately to another room (actually he gave me a choice of FOUR empty units which really made me MAD!) He promised to work on the issue, but IMHO I won't risk it there again!

    Wow....in BOTH cases we did it so far (at BWV and BLT) we did on line check in. But because our preassigned rooms were not ready and we wanted to put our stuff in our room versus store with the bell services we were able to get assigned to other rooms no problem. It did make check in take about 5 minutes longer but that was it. At BWV they could only do for us and not for the friend traveling with us for some reason - I think they didn't have anywhere else to move her. but she just stored her stuff in our room. At BLT her room was ready, it was just ours that was not - but again - they moved us and we both got rooms right away.

    Packed, and suitcases are in the car! We fly out of Toronto tomorrow morning at 6:20 so we're staying at an airport hotel tonight. So technically we leave tomorrow but I like to think that the vacation starts today Sister is flying in from school in Ottawa so the fun can begin tonight!
