I'm planning on hitting Epcot our first day (Saturday the 8th), so I will definitely pop in here and give you a report!
Sorry, yes, Test Track: "Presented by Chevrolet"

Looking forward to your review!

For gawrsh sakes, can you get a Fast Pass? Wheel chair? VIP pass?! Can't wait for your review, too and will you be doing the FLE and BOG?

Did you get any numbers? We got one so we won $4 - minus the $2 for the ticket, so we're $2 ahead!

The Yellowstone suite is the sweetest suite this side of Ft. Wilderness. It's actually the Presidential Suite, room 7123 in the South Wing. We were honored to stay for 11 nights in August 2011. I have many (pre-rehab) photos HERE and HERE.

Yeah, FP might be a better option for TT!

I did FLE last month when we were there, they had a dress rehearsal twice while we were in MK, it's awesome! The theming is just simply amazing. Ate as Gaston's Tavern, rode Under the Sea & Enchanted Tales with Belle. I've been looking every day for an opening at BOG but it's booked solid. I'm thinking I might just avoid that area in 2 weeks, it's going to be a madhouse with the official opening on the 6th. This is a super short 3-nt trip tp surprise my cousin, who will be there with her daughter & the school band. My cousin didn't know there were other parks besides MK - so I felt I HAD to go down & help her navigate LOL!! Family duty, right?!?!?!?

Another quick question. What is the easiest way to get to the monorail? I think I read that there is a bus to the CR from WL?

Hop on the boat to Ft. Wilderness/CR. Get off at CR and voila! The monorail.

Candace, are you always logged-in? - thanks for the quick reply.

summerrluvv, the boat to the CR is the Blue Flag boat. If you don't want to take the boat or want to try one method there and one method back, you could also take the non-stop bus to the MK and walk right over to the CR. Going back on the boat from the CR can be uncomfortable in the summer because there isn't any shade on the dock at all and if you just missed the boat, waiting 20 minutes or so in the direct sunlight on a dock can seem like a long time after a long day.

Oh, your cousin needs lots of help and lots she will get from a seasoned WDW traveler like you - she's lucky to have you around to avoid all those pitfalls of not planning out your first trip.

I completely misspoke yesterday - not only did I not win $4, I only had one number which wasn't the Powerball so it looks like I'm $2 in the hole. I told DH to buy the winning ticket, but...

Ha! Technically, I think I am, lol! My iPad never logs out of the Dis since the last iOS update. Strange....

But always glad to help.

Thank you! We are going next week, so I don't think it will be too hot

One more question! Do I have to fold up the stroller on the boats? I can't remember from the times we went to the Poly, etc. from the MK

I believe you don't have to fold up the stroller on the MK (Red Flag) boat (it's the yellow colored boat), but you do on the blue flag boat. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
