Well, I've only had that short day a long time ago so I'm practically a first timer which makes your questions difficult for me sometimes. Not this time though- one thing I will NEVER do and will NOT be sad about is Honey I Shrunk the Audience. I have a serious rodent phobia and the thought of it freaks me out.

Great updates! You are getting close. Love all the organization tools. I agree with Leanne on the parade watching spots since I use hers As for if I missed it it would not ruin my day
Never seen Stitch-don't want to
ditto with Honey I shrunk and Bugs
Ellen's Universe-unless I am napping-parts scared the girls

I will say we enjoyed the Conservation Station Saw Pocahantus and the cool vet area.

I can really only think of one off the top of my head... Stitch's Great Escape. I've never been on it but I haven't really heard of anyone liking it so I'm not too concerned about making time for it! Maybe one day, just to say I tried it, but probably not this trip.
It is so amazing how quickly this trip is coming up!! It does not seem that we have been talking and planning about it for this long already.

Stitch is a definite no for us too! Well, if others want to go on it fine, but Lilian and I will not be. We will go do something else.

Skipped/missed ride that I'm not sad about? Definitely agree with the above poster, Stitch's Great Escape. I went on it once, never again! I'm also not a fan of Mission Space or Honey I Shrunk the Audience so I won't lose sleep if I miss out on those either!
I know!! Your trip is coming up very quickly as well!!

Stitch is a definite no for myself and Lilian. I don't want to traumatize her!!

Summer sure is flying by here too! Really can't believe it is August already - kids to back to school 2 days after we get back from Disney! Cut it a little close but oh well, that's just the way it worked out!

Congrats also on finishing up your summer classes! Too bad you only have a week or so break - hope you enjoy it though!

Karen
Hey Karen! I hope to get by your PTR today. I am slowly working on getting caught up on my threads. Your trip will be here so soon!! Two Weeks!!

Summer has flown by for us too. Lilian will actually miss four days of preschool while we are gone but we knew this will probably be the only year we will travel for her birthday while she is in school.

Thanks! Classes ended well (hopefully, still waiting on grades).

DHS: American Idol-Hate the show, can't imagine the attraction to be any better!
AK: Conservation Station-The train broke down once and we were stranded there for hours and missed an ADR at Yak & Yeti!
It is insane!!!

I'm not planning HISTA either and I am not sure if we would make it to Captain EO either. Not planning AI either. Conservation station is most likely off the list for this trip too.

Hi Michelle! Thanks for answering! I want to see HoP. We are history lovers and have not seen the changes.

Not sure about Universe of Energy, HISTA I don't even think will be up and running, which I am not sad about.

LMA I am not sure if the guys want to go see it but I am not planning. Other priorities with Lilian.

Conservation Station is probably off our list too. At least I am not planning it.

I feel the same way Hope, though it is more of an issue with snakes with me. I am not planning it either.

Hey Mary!

Thank you. I need to update my chart with the hours since MK has had additional hours added to it. Good to know you like Leanne's viewing spots too.

Stitch, HISTA and Bugs are off our list too. Universe and Conservation are very slight maybes at this point.

I don't mind missing (and will skip if I'm allowed to get away with it):

MK -- Stitch and Laugh Comedy and Carrousel of Progress
Epcot -- Mission Space (will NOT do)
Studios -- Sounds Dangerous, Lights Motor Action
AK -- I can't really think of anything, but we've never done any of the shows there (hope to change that this year)

Hi Kathy! The only thing that I may do on your list (besides the shows at AK) is CoP if there is time or we need to cool off!

Transportation: How to navigate the World Effectively

I am hoping to get thoughts from you all on navigating around the World.

Specific questions I have:
--how easy is it to drive from park to park?
--have any issues parking before at the parks or other resorts?
--should we drive to the parks the mornings we have ADRs? I am leaning towards this as I do not want to be late.

Here are my thoughts:

I think that anytime we have to be at another resort, and we are traveling from CSR, I figure we will drive. With being able to park at the other resorts for free, this just seems to be the best option rather than allowing an hour or longer to get from CSR to another resort on time.

I am worried that we will be late to our morning ADRs if we depend on the bus system. Unless you all think this will not be an issue, I will have us driving the mornings we have early ADRs or BBB. That means we will drive Monday, Tuesday, Thursday mornings to the EP, MK and AK respectively. Is this crazy? We will also most likely be driving Tuesday again to 1900 PF so we can rest until we have to be there for dinner.

What do you all think? Thank you for any and all advice you can give me. We have never experienced going to any other resorts nor have we eaten at any resort other than food court at the one we stayed at.
