Our view today



I once again beat DH this morning at TSM . This time I beat him by 11,000 points so he can't even claim he was close we shared a cinnamon roll from Staring Rolls and it was wonderful. There was a bit if An argument with some line cutters prior to opening of SAB and some guy went off. He then preceded to set up camp for his family by asking 10 chairs and a table for his family of 4. Someone said something to him and he said he needed sun chairs, shade chairs and a table for lunch. Wonder why people can't find chairs. Lol

Anywho , last night we were suppose to meet Dis people at DTD at 9:30 for snacks and a drink but DH and I fell asleep for three hours. I was so upset to miss three prime hours of WDW fun. It was 9:15 when we woke so no DTD for us. We spent a a large portion of the day at SAB so we were tired I suppose . We we t to beaches and cream and shared a No Way Jose so it wasn't a total loss

Well that's all for now. More later

If you attempt to go in the regular entrance you are told to get in the regular line but can still sit in the reserved area. The problem with that is that they start letting anyone sit there 5-10 minutes before the show so it could fill up if there are a lot of people in the regular line.
Good to know. I think at one point I heard they discontinued the special entrance and had the people with packages having to wait in the very long line with everyone else. People were not happy, so sounds like they reopened special entrance. We haven't done the Fantasmic Package in a long time.

Dee yay!!

Great pic, I can't believe the ignorance of some people. Did the CMs let him hog that many chairs?

That's like 2.25 chairs per person...which means our family of 5 gets 12 + an extra table..."for lunch"

Starting to think about all the things I need to get for our trip in August. Just wondering if my 4 year old is allowed to use water wings in the pool or do I have to get her one of the life jackets they have there. Also, is there a height requirement for the slide there? TIA for the info....

The tuna is on the bar menu at Hurricane Hannah's . It is not available at the food ordering side only at the bar. There are nice chairs and a counter to sit and eat there now

That looks delish. Can you use QS for that?

Too bad there isn't a place to study the Tag Fairies in their natural habitat, eh?

Me too! I have read most of his books, but not Joyland. Maybe I'll add that one to my Kindle for my plane ride.

I second this. If someone in your family is picky about the taste of Florida water, you could either bring individual packets of Crystal Lite to dump into the free cup of water, or bring a Bobble and put the cold water into the Bobble so that it filters as you drink it. You can pick up Bobbles for about $8 at either Targer or Walgreens.

I was going to ask the same thing. We used to fly out of Logan, but since we are pretty much the same distance from either Logan or Manchester, we prefer to fly out of Manchester. Quieter, faster, and less traffic and hassle.



As of yesterday, our countdown is in the single digits! Woohoo! I started getting my act together yesterday: making my lists of must-pack items, buying odds and ends like umpty-leven bottles of sunscreen, and dragging out our luggage and carry-ons. I'll be spending most of today scaling Mount Saint Laundry. Hmm....I think I need another iced coffee!

Hey you guys! Reading all the live reports are making me so excited for our trip! A week from now we should be landing and heading towards the DME!

I have a question that I'm sure y'all can answer better than anyone

After we check in, I'll need to pick up my pre-ordered annual pass, our photo pass + card, and buy the TIW card. Can I do all 3 of those at the International Gateway or do I have to go to the front of the park? I know we've picked up the photo pass at the front of Epcot before, but was hoping to get it all done at one place.

Thank you!

Could be a problem with that plan. I think Stephen King is only releasing Joyland in actual book form- as a way to recognize the contribution of book stores to his success. I didn't even see it at Sam's Club last time I looked.
