One.... that it will be sunny and no crowds :rotfl:

Two.... that EE will have "surprise" rides for us when we visit DAK :scared1:

Three.... that Buzz will finish its refurb early!!! :flower3:

Less than 3 weeks to go :cool1:

Anyone else hoping for the same things?!?!?!

Hi! My family and I will be there at the same time too! Like you, I wish for the same things ESPECIALLY about Buzz! My kids were really looking forward to that ride and I've never seen it either. We're there 2/1 to 2/7....thinking of adding a few days.

We'll be in the World 1/26-31, so I agree! Good weather of course, and I would *LOVE* a sneak peek of EE! They're letting AP & DVC on while we're there, and I'm hoping they extend that to all (or at least me!). :)
Have a great trip, and may all our wishes come true!

Hi!! My Dad and I are going for a long weekend 1/27-1/30, not long enough for me, but now that I'm a working girl that's all I can do!

We were just there the first week in Dec. and it was a tad chilly... so let's wish for it to be sunny, warm and not crowded for us all in three weeks!! :)

We'll be there from 01/26 thru 02/03 and are soooo bummed that TT and Buzz will be closed - I've been wishing and hoping that they'll magically open them while we're there. Those are the 2 that my DS really wants to ride. And of course, wishing and hoping for good weather - goes without saying! And lucky for me, we'll be there for my birthday (1/31) - how magical is that?!?!?! So I guess even if a few rides are closed, I'm still getting my childhood wish - to spend my birthday at the World! Took me 36 years to do this, but hey - better late than never.

Good wishes to all of you going!

Be sure to go to City Hall in the Magic Kingdom....on the Left as you enter the park and ask for a Birthday Button.....It will make your day even more magical!

Happy Early Bday!

I am turning 37 on the 11th, and we are celebrating in Disney this year!! It's my birthday present. Really everyone knows we are NOT to celebrate on the 11th! I actually have decided to celebrate on 2/1. special dinner with lots of family meeting us at BOMA Yippee

So happy birthday to us January babies!!!!!!!

I'll be there for my birthday too!! The BIG 40!

Will any of you be doing anything so we can recognize you as DISers? I'm thinking of putting a ribbon on our strollers!

Since I'm such a newbie here at DIS is there a secret hand shake we do when we see each other :rotfl: Special hand sign? :flower:

I'm also wondering about whether or not the DISers will be doing anything special to make themselves stand out.

I'm sure we'll ALL be waiting in the same line at AK :)

DIS tags-----Go to Home Depot, grab a Mickey Head ALIEN GREEN paint sample, and write your on-line name on it. Then wear it while at Disney!

OR ---You can also wear a lime green ribbon.

Either identifies you as a DISer. Look for others around the parks.

Sounds like there will be LOTS of us there.

Our trip will be Jan. 21st through the 28th, staying at Contemporary. I can't wait to see my 18-month old son's first reaction to everything. This will be trip number 4 for my 5.5 year old son and trip number 3 for my 3-year-old daughter. I'm hoping my daughter will also enjoy seeing the Princesses this year. Last time she was there she was only about 15 months old and really didn't care about much but LOVE the characters, even the GENIE!

I'm also hoping for some nice mild weather (coming down from Maryland) and hoping that EE will allow some previews for the regulars. I wish Buzz would open early, but if not that's okay. My son will finally be able to get on a few new rides. I'm debating whether or not to take him on Dinosaur, since he'll be big enough.

I'm right there with all of you. We'll be there from 1/31-2/6!
I'm planning to pin a Home Depot lime green Mickey to my backpack diaper bag, with "DISboards" and "2poohbears" written on it. I've also got some lime green bandanas from WalMart to hang on the handles of our 2 strollers. Hope to run into some of you there---in sunny, perfect weather & riding Buzz since it will be completed early! :wizard:

The temperature here in Philadelphia dropped 30 degrees today and with the wind chill it is freezing. Perhaps this is to add to the excitement for our upcoming trip 1/27 - 2/04 which will be here in 13 days. I am hoping for nice warm Florida weather for all who are going soon.

Yes--Home Depot. Go over to the paint station. There is a Disney section where all the paint chips are shaped like Mickey heads.

Hi Mmiller, yes I am in Philadelphia and also had the power failure thing last night. I hope your long range forecast is even close to correct as it is freezing here now. We will be there 1/27 - 2/04. I need to know about this green tag idea, is it real.

As for the pictures, click on the line User CP near the top left of the page, then click on edit avatar for pictures or edit signature for your signature information. I haven't done this yet, however, it should work. Enjoy your upcoming trip.

We have reached 12 days to Boardwalk.

Harry---

I met several people on my last trip BECAUSE of the green tags!

Go to your nearest Home Depot....raid the Mickey Head paint samples that say ALIEN GREEN on them. Write your on-line name on them and WEAR them during your trip to identify.

Last time I safety-pinned to my fanny pack or collar....this time I found some green yarn for them. (to wear around neck)


YES, IT'S REAL!!!

We'll be there 1/28 to 2/3, staying at OKW, so we'll look for you in the Parks!!!

DW, DS (9) and DDS (twins 6) love to see how much stuff can be shoved in my backpack. They also enjoy my DIS board fun.The ability to combine the 2 and meet others is priceless. I will look for you and hope you have a wonderful vacation.

We were able to do all our favorite rides and used FPs like crazy. Had a great time and can't wait to go back! :sunny: DD6 was very sad to leave.

Weather was perfect, except for a little rain on Monday.

Hope ya'll had a Magical Time!!!

Well, for the most part. The weather was ok. Our first full day, 2/2, was beautiful. Friday 2/3, it rained all day & we got drenched. Saturday was quite chilly. After that, the weather was good. Monday 2/6 was beautiful & even got a little sunburned.

Crowds, well, I have nothing to way against. It didn't seem bad, but more crowded that I expected. The worst was definitely MK near Splash MT. & Big Thunder. Very congested.

Got to ride EE & that was awesome!!

Didn't see any green Mickey's. I lost mine on the third day...

We got back home on Monday night (2/6). Had a GREAT time...it was our 1st trip with our 2 y/o twins, who absolutely LOVED WDW. With the exception of a few meltdowns (to be expected), we had a great time. (Apologies to anyone on the ASMovies buses for crying twins on nightly returns to the hotel. :rolleyes1 )

I had my lime green mickey on my backpack and a lime green strap on one of our strollers, but no one from the DIS boards approached me & I didn't notice any DISers myself. Maybe next time...

It was a bit more crowded than I expected as well, but we didn't really have any problems getting into attractions and we ate early meals to avoid lines. We got to ride EE and Buzz, so we were THRILLED! Gotta love the Yeti!!!
The rain all day on Friday and Saturday morning was a bit of a bummer, but we just donned ponchos and stroller rain gear and still had a blast! I cannot wait to go back...already trying to convince my husband to go back next FEB!!! :banana:
