Good luck to all of you that are as foolish as I. Enjoy your 4th!
Well, at least she had the grace to be ashamed, most aren't.

Here's to you, with my resort mug raised (not the new fangled generic mug but the old school resort mug with the resort logo proudly emplazened upon it's side) filled with Barqs Root beer straight from the refillable mug station! May you find a mid day spot at the pool that is truly cool and refreshing where you seek the strength to return to a park for a second round. May you get to all your Priority seating arrangements and have good service. May all your fastpasses be completed without getting to the fastpass line just a few seconds late to make the window. When the sweat pours out and the kids are frustrated, when the lines are unbearable, your feet ache, when the yahoo from Timbucktoo breaks in line....remember....Walt loves you, and your fellow Disers love you. Trudge on my good friend... trudge on.
. Love it

At WDW now for our 2nd annual 4th of July trip. I usually stay in January with my husband and bring my daughter in July. It really isn't that bad as long as we use the crowd predictions for planning our daily park.

Thanks OP - and I'll forgive your avatar (Go Gators!) in deference to your kind words!

Actually, we go to WDW almost every year for the 4th, so we're not scared. Of course, we also hit a park at RD that morning for 2 hours and get out, never to return that day. That helps.
