...looking at the schedule to see if I have any time where I might be slightly hungry whilst at FLE........

ETA: I'm sure to be hungry during the MVMCP night........our last ADR is at LTT @2:40pm. Do you expect Gaston's Tavern will be open during the MVMCP? Surely I'll be hungry by 5pm

I just ordered my son the Canon Powershot A2300. It's $98 on Amazon.. Anything less than that and the cameras don't have a rechargeable battery. (Which is why we're replacing his old one.) For a little more you can get the A2400 line which has image stabilization and some other improved features. For $200+ they have the Elph line. But either way, you can't go wrong with the Powershot. Canon has really cornered the market on P&S.

I like my Panasonic Lumix camera. Nice features and good pics.


BTW, you didn't comment on what I put on your roll call entry.

DD is in bed and DH is going out to jam with his friend. I <3 my bass player.

So that leaves me to plan!! I am really really considering dropping DHS now and just going there late evening. Thanks for feedback earlier.

Does anyone know how late they do the Disney Jr show? I guess I can consult the internets for that answer. The more I think about it, I love the first park day to be at MK so DD can have her first (non merry go round) ride in Fantasyland. I am going to be a bawling mess so it also gives me more time to ride with her on Dumbo, Pan and Small World over and over again.

Exactly!! :-)

Hope their feeling better.

I wish I could start exercising. Unfortunately, I'm dealing with an inflammation in my left foot from a cortisone shot last month . My podiatrist just switched my anti-inflammatory meds b/c the other one seemed to have stopped working.

OTOH, I am trying to watch what I'm eating so I don't gain anymore weight. I'll be making sure to try to use portion control for both DS10 and myself while in Disney as well as drinking a lot of water. DS is overweight for his age and height, although he is starting to lose the extra weight he gained over the summer. So it's a start

Take out the EMH and that's our EXACT plan for our first day too - right down to the 50's Prime Time ADR! Great minds think alike!!!

I bought the Canon Power Shot SX260HS. It was around $300 when I bought it right after christmas......I do not love it, but I don't hate it either. I specifically bought it for this trip and I promised myself I'd use it so that I'd know the ins and outs of it.....but I always find myself using my dSLR all the time because it takes such fantastic pictures. On the upside, the new camera came with a darling wrap around short tripod.....I envisioned wrapping it around a tree or some fixture so I could take good fireworks pictures at MK. It's small enough to throw in my small cross-body bag but who am I kidding....I'll probably use my Rebel more than anything. I will try to make myself use this silly camera between now and December.....did I mention that I don't love it?

I think dh and I will split the sampler platter. I also think I will "try" the PB&J shake Oh boy.......I'm talking about food again, aren't I? We just ate a bunch of hot wings.....gearing up for the biggest game of the year! Yankees just beat the Orioles......I was actually pulling for the underdog birds.

Our second day, Dec. 2, I was hoping to take advantage of EMH at DHS which goes until 11pm.

Do crowds thin out on "school nights". Just wondering if it will be worth it to get back to DHS later that evening to watch Fantasmic!

That's good to know! We'll be there on 12/2 as well : We've got ADRs for H&V since 50's PT was booked.

Yeah I did. Somewhere back a few or 10 pages. I said something like " I just checked the roll call to see if you made any editorial comments on my resort."

Amazon has the Olympus stylus 8010 shock and waterproof camera for around $80 - it's a little pricey but the fact that it's waterproof has saved me from ruining mine many many times! It's great for the water rides - you can actually take a picture on the drop-down Splash Mountain. The battery on it is rechargeable too mine lasted five years before I had to replace it because it didn't hold a charge anymore. Great tough camera well worth the investment!

Aww I wanted the Orioles to win. Hope your Cards win. Moment of silence for my Reds.
