Ahahahaha I am not surprised.

I have just been chatting to Nik about if we should request a specific area of CSR. We stayed in Casitas last time and I'd prefer somewhere different. He likes the look of Ranchos, but I am more inclined to leave it up to chance, and if we end up in Casitas then it's a bonus as best for buses.

We've only ever had a preferred room, so had prime placement for bus stops, when we've been without a car so feeling a bit anxious about it all. I absolutely refuse to spend another penny though so definitely not upgrading.

We have a preferred by default but I prefer the look of Cabanas. Iím worried that weíll miss having a preferred next year but itís about £300 more.
I think with the new bridges nowhere will seem far away, a bit like CBR so from that point of view I would leave it to chance. They all have their advantages.

Wow!
Just caught up with your pre trippy. Have to admit ours is a bit like yours with all the chopping and changing.
It's our FPP day on Monday and we'll be driving the M6.

That would stress me out! Mine is next Monday so Iíve taken the day off! To be fair I work my hours across 4 days and can be flexible but I was prepared to use annual leave .

I think I like the look of Cabanas best too.

Every year we request a room facing the car park hoping it will be convenient for getting to the car, we've never had our request and always had a pretty resort view. I guarantee you this is the time we'll be walking out to a car park view in the morning

It's so awkward having to explain to work why I need days off specifically to book Disney things You've reminded me to get my request in for my FP day!

I generally ask for an upper floor, corner room and go with the flow. Weíve always had one pretty close to the car park and pool and been happy with location every time. The only time we look out the window is to see what the weather looks like anyway!

Iím lucky I still work shifts to a certain extent (Iím a nurse manager but still do clinical work) so I can manipulate my rota for things like FP day. If I worked Monday to Friday though Iíd be using annual leave!

Well Marie has just discovered QSDP includes alcoholic drinks. She thought it was only TS. I think this may have changed the holiday for her!

Lisa has your ticket reappeared in MDE yet? Mine has been gone for a while now but Nik's still showing.

Thanks!

I wasn't overly concerned that it wasn't showing but when it updated to show our new resort and was still not showing my ticket alarm bells started ringing.

Good luck with FP this week! I am definitely going to be in a funk when September rolls around and we won't be off alongside you.
