ouuuuuuu! Two days at Sea World.....me like! All of the shows at SeaWorld are worth seeing but they are scheduled and located in a way that makes it hard to see them all in one day and go on rides.

Hi Tracy!

That would be awesome, wouldn't it?

Ed is partial to getting down there on Friday night (10/30) so that we don't have to travel and stay up late for MNSSHP on the same day (Sat.) Unfortunately, I won't be sure of our dates until I can make our DVC ressie on 3/30.

If we do add an extra night, I'm hoping that we can arrive late Fri. 10/30 and check out on Sat. 11/6.

But, we won't be able to do the extra night if we get our first choices of BLT or VAKL, because we wouldn't have enough DVC points.

I'm trying to view this at this as a WIN-WIN situation!

Hi Heidi!

I'm guessing we'll have it a bit easier b/c our gang won't be as interested in the big thriller rides...just shows and exhibits.

I'd like to go earlier in the week so that, if we fall in love with it, we could go back for half a day later on.

But, my DNiece loves thrill rides and may want to drag Tricia (or me!) on a few so that she can do them! In which case, we would need to do some serious negotiating.

Now, Tricia is asking about doing Typhoon Lagoon instead of Sea World! (We've never done a water park.) Let the begin!!

Oh boy! Decisions, decisions....

I have never been to Sea World, but I have heard of people getting some discounted tickets before through some links on the DIS. I have no idea where though. $70 is pretty steep, but for 2 days, well, that makes it a little bit more doable! Of course the Disney Fuzzy Math is a factor here....getting your "value" out of those $70 tickets by spending more time in FL all together! Love it!

Okay...Tricia just found out that she can feed and pet dolphins at Sea World, so now We are so going to Sea World, Mom!

Thank goodness!

I really have no desire to walk around TL in a bathing suit all day!

Well if you get BLT without the extra day then you can do Typhoon Lagoon. Win-win there too. And if you end up with the extra day at OKW you can do Sea World. You can let the DVC Ressie gods decide your fate!

Here's me in 2007 with one of my new friends

I Almost Forgot to Tell You!

I took Tricia shopping this weekend (with DSis and DNiece, Caity, who will be going with us in October.)

We went to a new premium outlet complex by them and..... they have a Crocs Outlet!!

I bought Billy his first pair of Crocs: Black Caymans!

Not much of a Disney Jibbitz selection, but I was able to get him Buzz Lightyear and Tigger as starters!!

He loves them!

Oooo... new crocs!

You didn't get Billy lime green?

I bought Alex a new pair recently - shoebuy sent me a $15 coupon!!! Just to convince me to "come back" - not that I had gone anywhere - I just hadn't purchased anything from their website recently. Luckily Zachary's crocs still fit him - we had to buy him a new pair late last summer because his old pair had broken. No lime green here either... red for Zach and blue for Alex!

Hi Again! Ohh, I wish I could get on DIS more often, I'd so love to post on your report more often. I'm not sure I know anything about Sea World at all. It does sounds intriguing, though, after reading more about it.

I'd love for you to read through my TR. Yes, it's about a year old, and it was my first attempt so it's not as elaborate as my next one will be but I do hope that if you read it, that you will find something interesting

I'm going to start my PTR in a few months for my next year's trip. I'm not sure how early is too early to get it going, but I can hardly can contain myself.

Anyone that has planned a trip with as much detail as you and many of our fellow DISers, are experts in my book!!! Your trippies are SOOO much fun to read. They are VERY entertaining!!!

While planning our trip I was trying to decide if we wanted to add Sea World in the mix. I think that we are deciding against it, just because this will be our FIRST Disney experience and we don't want to take too much time away from it. I can't wait to hear (read) how your experience with Seaworld goes!!

Well, after reading your responses regarding Sea World (thanks!), I am really starting to lean further and further toward making it a part of our trip!

I figured that I might as well just hear it from the horse's mouth, so to speak, so I called Sea World Guest Services and spoke to a very nice woman who answered my questions. Turns out it was a perfect match....I'm a Sea World Newbie and this was her first day on the job!!

The answer to my burning question is, YES! Sea World does have accommodations for those with special needs (autism) that is similar to the Disney GAC. Just need to stop at Guest Services first, just like we do at WDW.

Now I am really going to do some Sea World park research in earnest!

But......

(You see this coming, right?)

To make the one-day park admission more of a value, I may want to take advantage of their "second day for free" offer. Not such a bad idea, actually. From the looks of the on-line map, Sea World is pretty big. I wouldn't want to be temted to rush around trying to do everything in one day.

But....

(Here it comes.....)

I don't want to take away time from my precious WDW!!

I wonder if we should try for the lower-point accommodations at OKW so that we could get an extra night???

Hmmmmmmm.........

Perhaps this would be a good "consolation prize" if we are unable to get ressies at either BLT or VAKL.....

Kathy
