There I am, at 6:55am on a bench, with all my DIS stuff laid out around me making my ressies. I start with my first one - Akersush Princess Breakfast, and the lady says "you have to secure that with a credit card" WTH...I totally forgot that part. So, I make all of them except that one. Ride all they way (down hill this time) back to our campsite, get the credit card, and ride all the way back (uphill) to get that one and also the Segway Tour scheduled. Way too much exercise for making ADRS.
Glad you didn't have to stand on top of your car. Did you get everything you wanted?

Almost everything. I wanted TRex for Saturday 17th for dinner. The only opening they had was at 4pm. I took it. Hoping to get something later.

We just planned a spur of the moment trip for October 8-13th. We're doing MNSSHP on the 8th for sure. I thought we weren't going back until Christmas 2010 but this is just what my planning OCD self needed!

we made our T Rex ressie months ago since you can make that one more than 90 out. Glad you got everything.

You are in Plainfield right?

ok so i've been getting really excited leading up to my 90 day mark (this thursday - only 3 more days!) and as i've been planning my days i've also been starting to think about what i am going to pack. i know i'm just a *tad* ahead of myself, but i can't help it. i've never been to florida in october before, and i was just wondering what the weather is like in terms of what to wear. is it hot enough for shorts? maybe i'll pack capris or bermuda shorts - in between long pants and shorts haha.

We have been several times in October. Usually mid and late and it has always been very warm. 2006 they were having a heat wave and it was in the 90s! We alway pack a pair of jeans and jackets and have yet to use them. Some evenings can be a bit cool but I would count on warm weather.

Sometimes no matter how much research you do, you just miss something

I live just west of Plainfield - between Belleville and Monrovia.

SO excited! Made our first ADR this morning for Rainforest Cafe! Yes, I know I could have called weeks ago, but I wanted to use this opportunity to use the internet reservations and figured it wouldn't be a hard ressie to get. This begins my week of making ADR's and I'm going to be so excited for each morning!! (we're staying offsite so have to make each ressie at 90 days)

We are flying out of Indy and our flight is an early morning flight so I have been looking at those hotels that you can stay 1 night and they take you to the airport. Some of the hotels are in Plainfield and I didn't know if that would be close? I am a little lost since they moved the airport entrance!

Plainfield is about 2 seconds away from the airport. Just jump in I70 - head east and it is the next exit. Super simple! The INDY Park and Fly is right there too. Let me know if you need any info about the area. Be glad to help you out!

On a different note.... I called TRex Cafe directly and I got a 6:15pm on the 17th! Now I am complete.

Premium Wishes Cruise - Wednesday, October 21

I am hoping to make a reservation for a Premium Wishes cruise for Wednesday, October 21. Last year my husband and I did this and had eight people we found on these boards join us and had a magical evening. We are hoping to do the same thing this year.

The for the boat is $300 and tip ($60) is $360 so divided by 10 it is $36 a person or $72 a couple.

For those who haven't done this before we would meet at one of the docks (I'll know which one in a few days) at 7:30 p.m. and leave at 8:00 to go out to the lake and watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks. It's a wonderful trip.

If you are interested or would like more information please let me know.

We are a couple in our 50's -- all would be welcome --
