Input needed.please.

Ok. Ive been crunching numbers here deciding if I want the dining plan or not. Its 693 for the quick service or 917 for the regular. If I get the regular, I have to pay a tip everyday, If i get the quick I get a refillable mug, 2 snacks and If I add in TREX, Chef Mickeys and Boma, (pay out of pocket) I would be just a little more than the 917. I am leaning towards getting the quick service, My kids will still be happy, the still get to go to TREX and a character meal. What do you guys think???????

At MK they can ride everything except the following are 40 inch requirment, Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Stitch's Great Escape! So not too limited there either. I'm getting so excited and can't wait until April. I woke up yesterday morning and was so happy and I woke Bryant up and said "I had a dream I was in Disney and it was FUN!" and he said so what!!! Not like he really cares hes not going, I keep forgeting. Boy am I going to miss him, but not that much!! I'll probably miss Disney World more.

Your planning on Boma's? I thought tip was only 6 or more people?

6 or more people and the gratutity is added in automatically. But, of course, even less than 6 people you're going to tip at every TS meal.

Sorry I meant you can tip what you can afford and not 18 to 20%. So even if you tip $5.00 its not that bad. You can plan for your tips instead of wondering what your bill is going to be for each place.

Now I guess I will post day 3 which my family is planning on going to Epcot to do Future World this day. It will be morning EMHs so arrive around 8am. I want to do Future World for most of the day and eat lunch at the Electric Umbrella (counter) then around 2:30pm-3pm go towards Worlds on let the kids do the Kim Possible Missions and just check out the Flower and Garden Festival. I'll try and make my ADR for Spoodles for around 6:45ish. Walk to the Boardwalk for dinner and check out the entertainment on the Boardwalk. Back to Epcot for Illuminations at 9pm. I have it all mapped out with details and character spots, I'll post details when they are all done with real ADRs.

I think your friend meant that even with the ts dining plan she would have to pay a tip in addition to the $917 as opposed to the cs dining plan where she wouldn't have to factor in tips for any of those.

My kiddos are much smaller than your friend's (I'm hoping DD will be 35" to get on Barnstormer!) but there are lots of things to keep them occupied while others ride the bigger rides or if there is a show that the older kids aren't interested in, maybe that is when they can do those rides while the kids see a show. In AK, the dino dig area is a great area; I'm going to let DD and DS do this. This would be a great way for them to spend some time while others ride Dinosaur!

Yes I understand! Heres were I'm coming from, if your going to get the CS plan and still pay for TS meals then why not just get the TS plan. Besides that her kids CAN EAT. I think all in all she will be buying more food than she is planning. She is leaning for the CS plan because of extra snack and refillable mug. The mug is nice but it only cost $12 per person but you only really need one or two, and it only be good at the resort just another thing to carry around the parks beings we don't have a stroller. Also the days we eat table meals together as a group we can split the tip 3 ways.

As for the Dino dig area I've hear some very good things about it.

New Stuff!!!
The Magic Kingdom will be having two new shows or entertainment I should say. Stitch's Supersonic Celebration which will be in Tomorrowland (street party) and Move it! Shake it! Celebrate it! (street party) in front of the castle. They look fun my kids love to sing and dance. Just another thing to look forward to.


My daughter has a tumor in her foot and has been in quit a bit of pain these last couple of days. So I call the Ortho doctor who said "Sheyann has a tumor in her left foot but it doesn't look cancerus so lets not mess with it unless its really bothering her" I should have gotten a second doctors look at that time but didn't, anyways I call him and say she really having issues with this foot and her ankle is starting to swell. They say he will not see her (I have a different insurance now) and she needs to go to a children specialist at the Univeristy of Chicago. Find its about an hour drive but a specialist is good right!? Yes its good if you want to wait a month to see a doctor I mean the girl is in pain (shes only 11 years old) should I tell her to just relax and deal with it?!! Maybe I should just take her into the ER and see what they can do.? Or do I just wait patiently for our Feb 19th appointment?

Yea, I am leaning towards getting the quick service, because I do know how my kids CAN EAT....... Heres how I look at It, if I get the regular, then I KNOW I will have to buy more snacks and drinks throughout the day PLUS add in a tip for 7 days which will add up to well over $900 and if I get the quick, I get 2 meals, 2 snacks, and Mug for each(we dont like to drink off one another) plus 2 sit down meals which will be the $900. I havent made my decision yet but I am going to make some reservations on Monday and if I have to cancel then I will ASAP so another family can have it. But maybe it might turn out to be about the same amount of money and I forgot that the kids will have their own moooolllaaa so I can make them buy thier own snacks. Now that I am thinking.... almost $1000 to eat for a week!!!!! No wonder I was reading on the budget boards that some people were talking about bringing sub sandwhiches into the parks.... I know I dont want to to back to the room to eat(maybe only breakfast) so I WILL figure out what I am doing because I AM GOING TO DISNEY and I AM GOING to EAT SOME GOOOD FOOD>AND HAVE A GREAT VACATION!

Sounds like a good plan to me!

I thought I should post a pic of me and the hubby since I posted the kids! We have been married for 10 years it will be 11 years April 10th about a week before we leave him home all alone to fend for himself!!


Don't we both look so happy (not) we were at the Taste of Chicago with Dawn and her DH it was sooo crowded. Crazy!!! Stevey Wonder was there so the people just flocked from every where. Maybe more crowded than Disney!! Elbow to elbow horrible never again!!
