Thanks for the tip about the Mary Jane Crocs! I am on my feet a lot so I might just get a regular pair. Your hair is so cute!

thanks! green is my favorite color. everyone thought i was crazy for painting my office that color, but when they see it they love it. and if/when i ever get pregnant (probably a very long time from now), this will become a nursery and i've already decided i'm doing a peter pan theme....boy or girl!

THANK YOU for all the tips! as far as a cooler, we rented a fridge from pop for $10/night, so no worries there.

as far as walking to BW from MGM, this is where i got the idea:

http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...32&postcount=6

it's a response to a question i asked about getting from MGM to MK. i'm thinking it may not be too bad b/c it's just me and DH, so no kiddies to worry about dragging along against their will!

tusker house - i can't do the chicken-on-a-bone thing. i've never been able to. it just grosses me out. i know they have other stuff, but none of it looks appealing to me. besides, we're going to narcoosee's that night so i'm sure we'll eat light for lunch.

there's no way i'm doing flights of wonder!!!!! i don't care if there's a glass wall between me and the birds. ain't gonna happen! i'm telling you....my fear of birds is completely IRRATIONAL! if there are birds lose in a room and i'm in that room, i will NOT be in that room very long!

oh, and i did add festival of the lion king after getting responses about it. so we're totally doing that. the AK nemo show is gonna be a "if we have time" sorta thing.

I am the exact same way about snakes. I can't even see them on TV. Flame Tree BBQ is really good! The pulled pork sandwich was awesome. I had a hard time getting use to a drink without a straw or a lid at AK though.

OK, yea, read that... tHEY LIE!! Trust me, we stayed at BWV - stand in line for the boat from MGM to Epcot - please, I'm begging you do NOT walk from MGM to EPCOTS monorail... I may be old, but by golly there's a reason, I do have some wisdom!! TAKE THE BOAT... and then get off at EPCOT... enjoy the boat docking at those resorts... talk to people around you... and when you get to Epcot, walk thru the turnstyles, head left... after Canada stay left, past McDonalds take the path left, its the rose walk... then start heading right - then straight, then down again... you know I wonder if I can find a gps map w/ mileage to convince you - MGM to MK walking is not what you want to do...

heck, make out in the boat!! relax, enjoy - then when in Epcot, get some adult beverages - England, canada...

Now for flights of wonder... be careful on the walkway they have the owl out to introduce you to the show... and on one of the trails you can skip the bat enclosure - do... it fascinates dd but it would give you nightmares!!

and one year, come with us to AK we'll be protective of your bird phobia, but you have to hear how the show set up is - it totally takes into account your phobia...

$10 a day for a fridge, or buy one from Walmart for $50 for your next trip... but do bring some goodies to store in there either way - I reccommend champagne!!

I think she's walking from MGM just to the BW, and then taking the bus to MK from BW...I don't think she's planning to walk from MGM to Epcot and take the monorail....

Anyway, Dawn, we'll be there the same time, I'll keep an eye out for you. We leave in 6 days for Key West, then heading to Disney 4 days later (5/6). CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!

oh, heck no! we're not walking from MGM to MK! that would be an experience! we were going to walk from MGM to the BW, then catch a bus from BW to MK. so let me make sure i'm getting this right - you're saying instead to take the boat from MGM to epcot and then get on the monorail to MK? that sounds fine, except i'm worried that we wouldn't be able to get into epcot since we'll be leaving MGM after fantasmic (we're going to MK for EMH that night). would that be a problem -- getting into epcot after 9:00 pm? i looked at the calendar and epcot closes at 9:00 that night. lemme know what you think!

You won't be able to access EPCOT after 9PM - just stick with your original plan to catch a bus from BW. Your other option would be to take a bus from MGM to the GF, Poly, or Contemporary and then take the monorail from there to the MK, but that's a decision I would make based on crowd size.

I love, love, love your pre-trip report! I can't wait to read how your trip was when you get back! Here is my question for you. I have seen the crocs, my sister-in-law has a pair, but, are they really comfortable??? They certainly don't look like it! My feet sweat, not gonna sugar coat it, they sweat a lot, as do my knees. Again, not fibbing, who the heck ever heard of someone's knees sweating, BUT mine do. So lady-like I know. I just love how attractive it looks. Anyway, I am so worried that my feet will start sweating because they are after all plastic/rubber type of material (not sure exactly what they are made of, but you know what I mean) and am afraid that everytime I walk, my feet will slide forward and be jammed into the front of my shoe causing problems with my toes. Also, I have always been overwieght, most of the time just 15-20 pounds, but sometimes more. Are they comfortable for plus sized people? What about arch supports? Anyways, I am pregnant now and after I have the baby in October (God willing, 4 failed pregnancies in the past) I will be doing the diet and am definately joining the disappearing peeps board!! Anyway, I really hope you had a great time and can't wait to hear how it was!!

crocs ROCK!!!!!!! the only complaints i've ever heard about them are the ones that don't have the orthotic foot bed. go to crocs.com and read about the different kinds. i have the mary janes (which i love but don't walk in all day b/c they're not as comfy) and the caymens. also, do a search on the DIS for "crocs" and you'll see what people here think about them. most people love them.

as far as your feet sweating, because of the holes in the shoe you get lots of ventilation. i've never had a problem with my feet sweating in them and i don't lack in the sweating department! my DH has a pair he wears to work that have no holes in them and he says when he takes them off his socks are moist, but it's because there's no ventilation holes. i opted for crocs during our WDW trip because i didn't want to wear sneakers and get a "farmer's tan" (i tend to soak up sun really quickly and easily) and i didn't want to do flip flops because of the thong part in between the toes. i LOVE flip flops, but not for 12 hours straight!


anyway, welcome to my TR! and congrats on the baby!!!!!!!

I'm all caught up, and your hair looks great! I am getting mine cut Saturday and colored the Saturday before we leave. I can't wait! Don't you just love a fresh cut and color?

YES! it makes me want to sing, "i feel pretty" and do ballet leaps around the room!

my bangs are a little shorter than i like them, but that's okay b/c my hair grows REALLY fast so by the time we leave they should be okay.
