So I'm here a WDW, arrived Sat. (just flight & hotel day) Boma's for dinner. Great! (btw- got free upgrade from Standard view at AKL to Savanna room )

MK today but was way too hot (100*)so we only stayed until 5:30pm- but I did get in a full game of Sorcerers of MK, very cool...new addiction I think,
also got 3 transportation card (all the bus ones).

Epcot tomorrow- for the 30th party...hoping it's not as hot tomorrow

I loved busch gardens when I lived in north carolina. It is still actually one of my favorite parks. We didn't do the haunt therebut did do the one at kings dominion which was fun. The people we were with were a blast and that helped. Glad you had such a good time. We got through everything at universal horror nights last night even with my friend needing us to slow down and stop.

I like to decorate my envelopes for mouse keeping... And make my lgmh to hang on my bag. And window clings for the hotel room (only for mod or value resorts, don't decorate at deluxe). Start a list of things you must pack. Make sure you have enough Disney clothes to wear on the trip. I'm currently in the process of buying clothes for my DD to wear on our trip.

You make a good point about the graphics side of it - I am in the middle of doing the various dining invites etc but I've run out of the clipart I want and now I'm annoyed with it lol... I've already chosen everyone's clothes, taken photos of the outfits with a piece of paper saying what day its for and what we're doing that day I have a full packing list done, ready to pack and tick off lol.

I do need to start on my custom journal but its an arduous task and I'm burying my head in the sand lol - I think I've just answered my own question!!

During my nothing left to do at the moment time (in it now) I hit the news & rumors hard, and make a list that you can check back with closer to the time you are going, a lot of the rumors actually pan out but might not be mentioned again

Also I like to make a list of the shows we want to see, you can find the current times of them ( they don't change that much) and then figure out what rides to do based on the show, this way you don't have to run around

For the shows in the World Showcase, they run crazy, they should do them on the hour or half hour, so you can start at Canada or Mexico and walk around from one country to another but they don't, and you can't see all the shows in one day, since some shows don't go on everyday, so to see it all you need at least 2 half days.

The way I look at it is if you have your ADR'S and you know what parades and fireworks you are goiing to, if you add the shows the rides fall into place, if it's a long line ride, get a FP or do it on a EMH

That is a really sensible suggestion actually, thank you!

Completely agree about the crazyness - the sheer volume of numerals printed on in the entertainment schedule irritates me beyond belief; 2:55, 3:20, 3:25, 3:35, etc - after about 2 minutes all I see is a jumbled mess of numbers and I just throw the sheet across the room!

I have a suspicion my DS (6) isn't going to be the slightest bit interested in any shows and trying to see them is not worth the battles I would have so that is going to be less of an issue for us this time round. Its disappointing as I would happily watch Off Kilter all day but its DS's trip too I suppose lol.

There is a rumor out there that after the end of the year FOLK might be discontinued , so if your going between now and the end of the year this could be the last time you see it

I also have heard that at Epcot during the Food & Wine Festival, Chase Disney Visa Card holders can visit the Chase Lounge, you can get free soda's + wristbands for special viewing for Illuminations & Concerts, this is exactly the type of stuff I look for to make for smoother touring, plus it's free and that's for me
