We arrived on the Monday after Thanksgiving and I was surprised at the crowds at the MK both Monday and Wednesday (of course they were the only 2 days that there was no Christmas party this week). Tuesday at MK wasn't bad however.

We only do the parks for a little while each day- Monday we were going to try the New Fantastyland but got into the park about 11am and it was absolutely crazy- a 45 minutes wait to get into BOG for a QS lunch, long waits for everything else in this part of the park. We did Pinocchio's for lunch and then were going to try the Haunted Mansion (30 minutes wait time listed so we skipped). We got our room number at this point so DH went back to the room and I played a few rounds of sorcerers of the MK. We came back to the park for our 4:15 BOG reservations and waited a little bit to get in. I had requested the West Wing, we were not originally scheduled to be there but our hostess noticed the request and changed our table. The grey stuff is a sweet cheese (thinking marscipone) with a cookie and cream flavoring to it.

Tuesday we headed over to Mk again and went to New Fantasyland- they did a wonderful job with The little Mermaid ride- it is beautiful and a great ride. We also visited Ariel- a well done line and set up to get you in as fast as possible. We then headed over to see Belle- what an amazingly done attraction- definitely lots of fun and very well done. I can see parents buying photopass just for these photos as they have a photographer taking photos of the whole show and you get a card that has all those photos on it. Again the way they developed parts of this is fabulous- I believe they have it set up to have up to 4 rooms of 45ish people going at a time without it being too obvious. Lots of fun and definitely be in the show if you want a photo with Belle.We got out of storytime at 10:20 and got into the short line for BOG lunch opening (10:30am) so we went to lunch and sat in the side room that is not open for dinner. Love the way they do lunch here- it really helps move people through the line and is fun. Besides lunch on nice dishes is always a nice counterpoint to the normal QS. We spent the evening at Epcot and then a late dinner at Narcossie's.

This morning we headed over to the completed Storybook Circus (I had been on barnstormer since it reopened but had not seen all of the new area). We rode dumbo- the play area looks like it would be a lot of fun but the ride was walk on at the time so no one was inside the area. We also saw all of the characters and there areas are very well done and lots of fun. The water play area looks like it will be fun and very wet for anyone who decides to play there. The gift shop is also lots of fun.

I spent more time playing sorcerers than anything else and moved up to the medium level- I found the biggest difference is walking to more portals since it takes at least 2 to complete the spells against each villain or henchman. Also I didn't get one but they do have some shirts that you can buy to enhance you power during the game. Another fun item I found was a scavenger hunt book that has photos of places around WDW and you guess where it is (the answers are inside the front cover of book).

I'd love to go, but we won't have a car. I'm not sure we'd be able to get there unless we did it on a day my sister comes and I think that's before you get there

we won't have a car either...probably have to cab it, something else to figure if it fits the budget or not!

Had not planned on it- we will have our deluxe Aps through the following March so unless we get an amazing ticket deal we probably won't head back to Universal until after that. DH can't ride roller coasters or any of the rides with back injury notices so there is not much for him to do at Universal. Renting a car for a day might be cheaper than taking Mears type service which is definitely cheaper than a cab. They have a few rental places right on property and some of them will even pick you up and drop you back off at the hotel to pick up the car- so you could do a 1-2 day rental to go to Universal.

WWOHP is amazing!! If a few families plan on going, a one day car rental would be cheaper. I know there are several car rental places in DTD. Just an idea. They are adding a lot more on too, I don't know when it will be complete yet?

Guess what?????
We are BOOKED!!!!
A of A-Cars for Nov. 21-30th!!
We may shave off a couple of days and go the 23-30th depending on the free dining dates, but that's what we have for now. Lisa-DH said we will go back to Universal for at least 1 day next year...and we will have our minivan.

We rented a mini van. It was easy peasy. We called them up. Set up a pick up time for the next morning at 8am I think. They picked DBF up took him to DTD got the van, brought it back. he took it back the next morning. and they brought him back to the resort.
