#1- the baggalini is great for organizing but really hurts your shoulder.. there is a metal piece that adjusts the strap and really is uncomfortable. I guess the search is on for the best bag again..:confused3

#2- crocs are awesome! No blisters at all. We were dorks and wore socks with them, but no hot spots... :)

#3- getting ressies @ rose & crown pub at 7:55 pm was perfect! we were out on the patio in the best seat to view illimunations. Nothing better than not having to deal with crowds!
while everyone was trying to leave after the show, the kids were eating desert :)
The food was pretty good. both my mom & I had pot roast, very tasty. DH had fish & chips and enjoyed that as well...
although my DD (7)had mac& cheese and thought it was nasty and my niece(5) thought the pizza was too mushy.. but enjoyed the make your own sundaes!
It was a little chilly for the girls- Here they are trying to keep warm..lol

#5- The DDE card only works if you actually present it when dining! I would forget to use it, and not remember until we got back to the room. ps-I can't find any of my receipts..

We have today & tomorrow left on this trip, we have yet to finish 1 park..today looks like thunderstorms, so we won't get to see much but I learned that no matter how much planning you do, you can't control the weather, air travel or stomach problems. You have to have a plan B.
BTW---Yea... we didn't have a plan B...lol

I tried a Healthy Back bag last time I went and was really comfortable but kept slipping off my shoulder if I bent over. Annoying! I leave on Mar 1st and this time I'm taking the Timbuk2 Metro bag which is a mini messenger bag. I actually use this pretty often as a purse too. You don't get to design your bag with exactly the right colors like you do with their small on up messengers but it's really comfortable. You can also get a strap pad, strap cell phone holder and strap accessory bag. Has big interior pocket and organizer pocket. I can easily fit the junk I'm taking to the park I think.

Thanks for the tips.

Now I know I'll bring both the baggalini and the fanny pack and see how it goes.

Thanks for the baggallini tip! I was considering this bag just to see what all the hype was about. I think I'll stick to LeSportSac (LOVE LOVE LOVE their bags) or a water resistant backpack from LL Bean (the smaller variety).

I love my overland Equipment Donner Bag, Just the right amount of pockets and the strap is comfortable. I wear it over the sholder or across the chest.

I also have a Timbuk2 metro bag that I think is great, but I use it around and find the donner bag better for disney.

I think it's got to depend a lot on your particular size and frame. So I'll take the baggalini and the fanny pack, and, as Tim Gunn says on Project Runway: "Make it work!"

Such decisions! I guess I can just buy a couple of more bags and alternate. :rolleyes1
