Things will be different that’s for sure, I can’t remember the last time I used the standby lines unless the waits were less than 15 minutes. I’ve moved away from ADR’s the past couple of trips and just wing it so that part won’t affect me much.

I sorta locked myself in on our August trip today by booking our flights and broke down and borrowed points for a BLT theme park view to fill in that missing night. Kinda embarrassed to admit I booked it to watch the fireworks from Top of the world lounge before realizing there won’t be any fireworks.:rotfl2:
No you didn’t!!! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️
I bet if you called and explain, they’d help you out. Hey, at least you’ll have a beautiful view sitting on the balcony with a beer in your hand! I know that’s where I’d be!

I saw and now have less certainty about our trips in the fall and winter. There are just so many questions and so few answers at this point. I looked at MDE and my dining reservations are still there for September and early November, but I know those will be wiped out in the coming days. I also have tickets for MNSSHP in September and November, but not sure what will be happening on that front either. We're supposed to be there for New Year's Eve into early January, but I'm starting to wonder if there will be any fireworks at all this year.

What are others thinking in terms of whether you'll wait out the uncertainty vs. just decide this year might not be in the cards?
I still plan on going. I have 6 trips booked in the next 11 months and if Disney is open I’ll be there and make the best of whatever is going on at the time.

:rotfl2: Yea I did.

I was looking at availability, screaming into the kitchen telling my wife what was available. She said book whatever I wanted. So I booked BLT, and yelled into the kitchen that I booked BLT for the fireworks. After calling me a few unflattering names she reminded me there were no fireworks.:rotfl2:

I’m alright keeping it the way it is, by then I’ll just be happy to be there.pooh:

    That's a great outlook. I'm thankful I have a couple of months to see how things play out. I'm sure you'll have a blast with a theme park view at BLT even without fireworks!

    We also have NYE plans, first at BLT for fireworks viewing on 30, then BWV, BECAUSE we go to Epcot on 31. Even without fireworks, i think we’ll go. I booked a few days at VB for after that, we were supposed to go on a Fantasy 7 night cruise, but I think we will cancel that. VB seems safer to me.

    Good morning NJ! I'm so happy to see a nice sunny morning for a change. I think it's been a week since the last time it was so beautiful at this hour in the AM. I'm going to see my DGChildren today so that is also making me very happy! Happy Saturday!! :tink:

    We have a wren family trying to build a nest in my geranium plant that is right outside my window off the kitchen. I guess it must be the color that is attracting them but that is not a great place to build a nest. As much as I would enjoy watching the whole nesting process I still have to deadhead and water the plant. I can't imagine the havoc that will cause the birds each time this has to be done. Watering would like being in a flood and deadheading will "OH NO, the MONSTERS are hear again!" I hope they see the "light" before they get the whole nest built and have eggs...

    Last year they tried to build a nest in the wreath on my front door. Crazy birds! :rolleyes2

    I’m also considering Christmas/NYE weeks if we change our minds about August. Just need to get all the details first. Just all seems so disappointing right now.

    Good morning NJ! Looks like another beautiful day, enjoy the sunshine!

    I see so many go to WDW multiple times per year. In some ways I'm envious of you. DH and I only go to WDW once per year, my DH told me a few years ago that if I want to make him hate WDW I just needed to make him go more than once per year. It's not that he doesn't like WDW but he's not the huge fan in our family. We do go for two to three weeks when we go so I'm ok with only going once per year. Over the years I have been able to experience WDW at different time of the year and I guess the one that works best for us in Jan/Feb. So to all you lucky people who go multiple time each year, enjoy! pixiedust:

    We used to be a once a year or once every few years type of family until 2018 when we joined DVC. That lead to “Well it would be cheaper if we got annual passes” which lead to “Wanna go to Disney we have extra points, and already have park tickets” which lead to “We need more points!!!!!), and everything kinda snow balled from there. I guess my wife is lucky that I enjoy Disney as much if not more than she does, now if I could just convince her we need more BWV points. pooh:

    We joined DVC in 2000 and we used to do multiple trips per year and yes we added on 3 times all at BWV. Those multiple trips is what led to my DH saying I was going to make him hate WDW if I kept making him go so much...we always have a good time but there are other things to see and do. I would add more points but we really don't need them as I tend to work with extra points being available each year. BUT if I had more points I could stay longer on my one trip per year and still carry extra points to the following year for those large family trips!!! DHs not buying it...LOL. ;)

    Good morning! It’s crisp and sunny in Cape May.

    DH got up early and brought fresh bagels home, and said Happy Anniversary, he remembered! 52 years:love:
    Happy Anniversary! Wow 52 years that's great and he sounds like he's very thoughtful to go out and get fresh bagels. I hope you enjoy your special day. :tink: DH and I will be 47 years this month, time sure does fly when you're having fun! :thumbsup2
