Thanks Jenny. I hope with the extra hours, maybe it won't be as chaotic. Wishful thinking I'm sure but hopefully we will be able to make it to the late show if needed. Luckily the next morning is not too early (9:15 ADR).

I'm really hoping someone recommends some good Disney music CD's because that's on my souvenir list, too!
Hey Christine. I hope it does too, but if we don't make it to F! I'm sure we will have plenty of other wonderful memories. Meghan recommended a few if you did not see her post yet.

I think you'd better plan on a later B&tB show! You will be rushing to get from PHD to B&tB. PHD will be a good 20 min at least and then there is the hearding of the people out of the theater afterwards! VOTLM is right across the courtyard from PHD. Maybe you can see both of those then head to B&tB. There are also character meet & greets with Little Einsteins and Handy Manny right outside PHD and characters in the animations studios building next to PHD. It might work out better to see PHD & VOTLM while you are in that area, seeing the characters in between the two shows! Just a thought! Did that make any sense?

Sorry Emily was such a poop today! Hopefully tomorrow will be better so we can get some shopping, I mean, walking in!!
I posted above but I wrote down the time I want to anticipate getting to BBL not when the actual show starts. I tweaked my card to note the difference. Of course all the times could change. Luckily the WDW Lines App gives the show times too. I also am wondering if we might be able to knock out RnRC and ToT before the 9:40 PHDL show. What do you think?

Ahh!! I would think they would let you exchange it as long as you have not unwrapped it and it is close to the purchase date.

I really want the 4parks one world CD-have heard nothing but rave reviews!
That is one of the cds I am eying. It seems to be really popular.

I have the "Wishes" and "IllumiNations" cds and I adore them! Perfect for when I need a Disney fix. I'm hoping to buy the "4 Parks One World" cd on this upcoming trip.
I love the soundtrack of it! I was listening to it this morning when I was working on things. Thanks for the cd recommendations.

We've never seen F! (or many of the other nighttime shows, for that matter!). I hope you get to see it and it's great!

It was my only goal for the night that when the kids were in bed, I would catch up on your PTR! And I did! That was a lot that I missed!

I love all the itinerary cards! You're going to have such a great time!

Those mousekeeping envelopes are AMAZING. So very cute! I love it!

Those wristlets are really really cute! I hope you get one so I can see which one you picked!

I don't think Fantasmic is that scary...we took DS last time, and it was fine. Guess you'll know if you see it!

I can't believe you leave so soon! Sadly, I'm keeping time for the next few weeks based on Syd's surgery, and since you'll be back before her surgery, I know it's all very soon! I hope you're not stressing and that you're taking care of all the last minute details!

Hoping to take a trip this year, but also contemplating buying DVC, which would involve skipping this year and using that money for the downpayment. We'll see where the year takes us.

One of these times I bet you will get to go too.

You're too funny Christa!! I am glad you stopped back by and you caught up. I know it was a lot to get through.

Thank you!! I hope F! is not going to bother Lilian so I am just going to reassure her if she does (and we get to see it).

I know Syd's surgery is coming up so quickly. I am praying it goes well!! I'm sure it well.

Hard to believe, but today we are in the single digits until we leave!!! We started planning this trip about 20 months ago so for it to be almost here, it is just amazing (to us). Since it is another day, we have moved to another item on the countdown…

9. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!!!!




Next to Soarin’ this is probably my other favorite ride in Disney, definitely my favorite in MK. I’m looking forward to taking Lilian on this rollercoaster, as she is tall enough!! I’m not a huge rollercoaster fan but I really enjoy this one. It probably will be the only one I go on unless I decide to brave Goofy’s Barnstormer.

I think it would be fun to be able to ride this at night too. I believe it runs during MNSSHP, so it might be possible. Can anyone confirm this?

For those who want to relive the experience, here is a video we watch in our house, BTMRR

It absolutely runs during MNSSHP! I always make sure to do this ride twice: once in the day and once at night. Two totally different experiences; you'll love it! So excited for you!!!!

WOO HOOOOOO FOR SINGLE DIGITS!!!

Oh my, I absolutely BTMR!!!! I have never been on it at WDW because we just haven't taken advantage of baby swap yet. I'm thinking of trying it out this trip, though. At least for one or two rides.

Here is my last itinerary card—hard to believe. Thank you for all the invaluable advice and information you have given!! I have enjoyed reading the responses to my questions too.



What advice would you give someone venturing to Disney for the first time or in a very long time?
