View Full Version : Last minute questions

Morning Everyone,

I have some last minute Questions if anyone can help.

I can't find any lime green ribbon anywhere. Has anyone found it in Walmart?

Anyone back recently- Have the shows which were cancelled on some days been reinstated yet?

Anyone know for sure which nights Spectro will be on?

What are the Security Queues like at the moment?

Time to start getting excited but I'm never happy until we get to MCO and board the shuttle to hear "Welcome to Orlando International Airport. We hope you enjoy your stay". It beats Gatwick!!!!!!!!!

Carol x p.s. We'll say one for Leechie while we're there

so looks to me like MGM on a Sunday or Wed is your best bet for seeing all shows.

Click here for park hours and fireworks info from Disney (http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/waltdisneyworld/parksandmore/parkhours/parkhoursindex?id=SEAllParksLocationCrit&date=32002)
you need to click on each date in each park to find out about parades and fireworks etc - it's a bit cumbersome, but it's the 'official' hours

Have a super holiday, I'm sure Leechie would be thrilled that you are thinking of her while you are away,

The show days at MGM are the same as when we were there, so we tried to go on days when they weren't both on hoping it would be quieter, too many cheerleaders for that!!

The last Lion King at AK was also 2pm, but it leaped from 4 to 8 shows (last one 4.30) for Presidents Weekend, so hopefully it will be better for you!!

Don't miss Jungle Jammin'!!

Have a great time, too late to send you my ribbon now!!

Thanks both of you. That is a big help. Both DD & I have health problems and not much stamina so when we do get to the Parks it helps to know when the special things are on so we don't miss them.
As is now traditional we will start with Walmart on day 1 so hopefully I'll get my ribbon there.

Hearing the shuttle voice is one of our "we're really here!" moments, too :)

Hope you have a fantastic time (and what a nice thought for leechie)
