Re: The Next Chapter: Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Disney Job for Me!

Congratulations! I'm getting discontented at work and did my own Disney job search this week. I started the application process but haven't updated a suitable resume yet...need to get on that. The employment history section which wanted info for the last 10 years was confusing when it asked for an ...

The Next Chapter: Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Disney Job for Me!

Some of you on the forums know that my husband, youngest daughter (attending Johnson University Florida) and I moved to the Kissimmee/Orlando area last August. It was an outstanding year. We traveled north in May when DD finished her freshman year and visited family for about three months and then r...

Re: Moving to be near the Mouse!!!!

Traffic in Kissimmee is bad....real bad. We lived in Kissimmee for about a third of our nine months in FL. It is much more "touristy", for want of a better word, than other areas. So many of the tourists stay right in Kissimmee; it is amazing how many hotels and restaurants there are in that area. A...

Re: Moving to be near the Mouse!!!!

I will second what Rich posted. REDUCE, REDUCE, REDUCE. After you do that, reduce some more. We have a 10x10 storage unit in WV (where we originally grew up and lived for many years). We have two 5x10 units in Kissimmee. And that's with NO furniture! When we sold the house in MD, we left the furnitu...

Eileen, Go to your User Control Panel (a link to it should appear at the top of the forum page where this thread is running. I sent you a private message. Thanks, Melanie Melanie: I would love to talk with you personally via email. I know there is so much I don't know about Orlando having basically ...

Re: Moving to be near the Mouse!!!!

Hi Eileen, I know the prospect of moving can be daunting but when it's time, you'll know it. I would be happy to share information with you such as who and where we rented, areas to avoid, etc. If you would like to contact me personally, just let me know. Be assured that there are soooo many great p...

Re: Just Priced Room, Tickets & Meal Plan and Almost Died

There are a couple of companies online that seem very good, and it not only makes the accommodations that much cheaper, some have full kitchens & a washer/dryer right in the villa. If you have kids, just the savings on breakfast everyday can help with the food bill! I remember when I was a kid, my ...

Re: 10 Year Anniversary Today!

Happy Anniversary. Nothing makes me happier than listening to the music on Subsonic (although actually BEING in the Parks listening to the music live is pretty great :lol: ). If more people knew this site existed, it would probably be overwhelmed with listeners! Thanks, Subsonic, for all you have do...

Re: Another MagicBand question

I second MmeLeota....you want to make sure you have the My Disney Experience app and that you link your tickets/MB to your account. The MDE app is awesome for making your FP selections (although my understanding is that you can't use FP+ through the app unless you are an AP holder or are staying on ...

Re: Any news on the shirt front?

Had a horrible, horrible experience with CafePress this past Christmas,as did thousands of other people. The short story: they were incapable of handling the Christmas rush, but kept taking orders. People started to get ancy when their orders still hadn't arrived the week before Christmas. CafePress...

Re: Just Priced Room, Tickets & Meal Plan and Almost Died

Foldmama, let me make a suggestion: the best move we ever made was renting vacation homes. We are renting a home on Lake Sawyer right now through Homeaway. The owner rents it for 750/week. We are renting it monthly for $2250...less than what your hotel is going to cost you! If you are interested, I ...

Re: Another MagicBand question

My understanding from the emails I've been receiving (I'm an AP holder) is that they are for AP holders only. BenB, I don't know if your kids are boys or girls; girls might want their own (I love accessorizing mine LOL), boys probably couldn't care less!

Re: Moving to be near the Mouse!!!!

Very interesting and definitely food for thought. Owning a house is wonderful except for all the money and hard work to keep it up! LOL That's exactly right. That became especially apparent when we sold our home in Maryland. We quickly realized the deferred maintenance that had piled up. We spent a...
