I have a 4S. Is the feature already there, or do I need to download an app?

You'll need to update your phone to iOS 6 when it's released, probably within the next week or three... Or you can try out one of the existing panorama apps.

With no coffee maker in the room and "free" coffee requiring that I get dressed to go get it, it's a simple solution. We are driving so it will be easy enough to throw in the car and bring along. With early starts planned it'll make for a much happier daddy!

iOS 6 drops on Wednesday. You can activate the panorama feature in the camera options.

That is the best idea EVER! We're flying, but I may have to make some room in the suitcase!!! =)
At the very least I'm going to pack some non-dairy creamer for the Disney coffee.

My DH would soooo love to have his coffee maker in his room! We never drive down, so I guess that won't happen.

Question: Is anyone going to do Pick a Pearl at Epcot? Has anyone done it before? I was just curious as I was reading a thread about it. They said to pick an ugly hairy one. (Probably the only time you'd be encouraged to do that!) We watched them doing it last September when we were there and saw some beautiful pearls being discovered.

You can ship things to the resorts too, depending on how important it is. Another alternative is the Starbucks VIA instant coffee. They work with hot and cold water and are good for an instant coffee.

I haven't done pick a pearl at Epcot but I did it somewhere else with my kids before. The pearl is neat but the catch is that they want to sell you a setting for it to turn it into jewelry. Just seemed like a bit of a scam to me. Others may have a different opinion though, that was just my experience.

Pick a pearl is a must do for us!!!!

Last time my boys picked 2 each...

I ordered 4 Cinderella carriage cage necklaces from eBay, and they gave them as gifts!!!!

1 to each Grandma, 1 to DS's Teacher, and the silver one to ME!!!!

DD11 did it last trip in Japan. I had bought her a Cinderella carriage cage on eBay for her to put it in so there was no discussion of having it made into jewelry there. It was fun; they make such a big deal out of the process. A pretty, cheap souvenir with a fun experience to go with it. She probably will want to do it again, but not sure what we would do with another one...
