Well...Trip 3 of 3 in the books

I have a trip booked for the end of August for 9 nights,but...

I have a four day weekend at the end of September
I have some points available
I have an annual pass
Flights are only $186
I only need a studio for Mrs Colonel and myself
I hate to miss F&W festval - it's been about 10 years

Such is the train of thought that led a maniac to make a four night ressie at Boardwalk
F&W and MNSSHP here I come again

You can always use an annual pass to justify another trip laugh

I haven't been to see the Christmas Decorations since 2006. I have some DVC points and an annual pass. So I booked another trip for mid-December. It only makes sense, right? It's only four nights. A long weekend. I'm entitled.

See, this is why I need an annual pass. So I can justify going to WDW more often.

I'm only there for four nights, so I plans on one night at HS, one night at Candlelight Processional, and one night at MVMCP. That should get me in the Christmas spirit. I hope it works out.

The day after tomorrow. It's finally here. The first of three trips this year; 1. The Anniversary Trip 2. The F&W/Halloween Trip 3. The Christmas Trip.

I pray to the Weather Gods...keep us dry. From rain anyway, I expect to sweat a bit. Especially on 9/4, I need good weather.

ADRs in place:
Sat 8/31 BOG-Dinner
Sun 9/1 Raglan Rd-Dinner
Mon 9/2 Yak & Yeti-Dinner
Tue 9/3 Kona Cafe- Breakfast
Wed 9/4 Private Dining at GF
Thu 9/5 Sanaa-Dinner
Fri 9/6 Brown Derby- Fantasmic
Sat 9/7 Le Cellier-Dinner

I ordered some groceries and adult beverages from Garden Grocer. I think everything is in place and all systems are go. Let the Magic begin.
