The parks have been less crowded than my other trips in October. Pretty much walked on Soarin, TT, and all the MTS at MK. We won dream fast passes at MK but I didn't even have to use it!
MNSSHP was a blast and we stayed until the very end.
Well...off to have fun or get sore feet!

Sounds great! I hope the parks stay empty until after we leave. Have a great vacation!

Mousekeeping

I know that many people when staying at a Disney owned resort make Mousekeeping envelopes. I always have in the past.

Do you make MouseKepping envelopes at Shades or just lay the tip in a spot that they'll see?

It is obvious they did not order the onion rings

Evergreens + Onion rings = Satisfaction

I've got to remember that. I've never had them. Maybe I could just get an order of those and skip the sandwich. I'm always so full after the sandwich.

I do make the mousekeeping envelopes still. I figure it can't hurt to make it really clear that we are intending to leave a tip for them . . .

Sounds like several of us are getting ready to go at the end of October. We'll be there Oct. 18 through the 30th. Have a great trip, everybody!

I have done that! You can either get a 1/2 or a foot long of onion rings, they are the best!

Girft shop photos?

I am wondering if anyone has any photos of the gift shop at SOG... I'm sure that I read that it's quite small. Do they sell Disney pins, jewelery (such as earrings), mouse ear hats, t-shirts? Or do we need to go to the Poly for that sort of thing?

TIA!

I am planning to wait until we get to SOG to pick up diapers for my DD. They do sell them in the gift shop, right?

I don't have any photos, but they do have T-shirts, and I think some jewelry. I don't remember seeing mouse ear hats, or pins. They could have had them though, I may have missed it. They had some great snowglobes, my dd collects them that's why I remember that. Also, most of the T Shirts said Florida, not WDW on them, if I remember correctly. If you are looking for more "straight from the world" stuff, check out the other gift shops, but the SOG shop is definately worth browsing. Hope this helps.

I'm sure they had them, just keep in mind it's a limited supply so they may not have the brand you usually use, or the large packages.
