I am glad to hear you are coming down for Studio 20! We had a great meeting with Disney operations and they told us some of the really awesome things they have plans. It's all about the cupcakes, Baby!!!
I saw it on MouseSavers and thought the same thing. Too bad, 'cos the deals look fantastic. It's too bad my guys have inflexible work schedules. Plus, Will graduates Dec 21, so that's out. I could swing a long w/e Oct 10 - 13 (we get Columbus Day off), or Nov 9-12 (we get Veteran's Day off). I was supposed to go to DL Nov 7-12, but those plans might fall through. My friend's job is ending Oct 31, so I don't think she'll want to go, which is understandable. If she lands a new job, then maybe we'll still go. Or, we could switch and go to WDW on this deal, but I doubt she'll want to go anywhere until she lands a job.
Have you seen the thread (News & Rumors) about the 2009 free dining bounce back offer? It has my wheels turning, but I am wondering if that's when you are thinking about going with your friend from NJ?
