I guess "One time at band camp" is more of a lifestyle, than a t-shirt.

Band geeks rule, haters drool!

They actually sell it just like that. It's in the cheese section of the grocery store hanging with the bags of pre-cubed/ sliced cheeses. Disney actually has quite a few grocery items now! The other day I made Mickey and friends shaped pasta!!

Another former band geek jumpin in for this PTR. I was a high school band member a few moons ago playing flute, piccolo and occasionally percussion/misc. Many of my classmates were in the PCC Tournament of Roses Honor Band (I was first chair and I never did it, was afraid I would mess up on tv), I sure wish I had auditioned now that I look back. I have nothing but great memories about band, we were all a family.

Love your hidden mickey in the fruit pizza! Your kiddos are sure cute!

Welcome!!! I'm hoping to get lots of band geeks on board.. I'm sure there will be lots of band-o references

I have a good friend who worked with the color guard for the PCC TOR band for many years. Too bad you didn't get a chance to march. Don't you hate looking back at mistakes you made in High School?

Glad you're here!!

Need Stroller Advice

So.. it's time for the stroller debate You all were looking forward to this, weren't you?

We will only have one child in need of a stroller this trip. And I am thanking the stroller Gods every day that I no longer have to push around the double stroller BEAST!!

When we took our quickie getaway in September, we just used the cheap, Wal-mart umbrella stroller for Shae. This time, I'm debating using a Disney stroller for her. Let me share my thought why:


Why I support taking the umbrella stroller only:

SAVE MONEY
We can use it for the walks back to BCV from Epcot
SAVE MONEY
Smaller and less intrusive to fellow visitors
SAVE MONEY
Can use at the resort as well

Why I support renting a Disney stroller:

Lots of storage possibilties (cup holders, etc.)
Sun shade (umbrella stroller doesn't have)
Sturdier
Don't have to drag on buses/boats/monorails
Lots of storage possibilities


Please share your opinions or ideas!! Thanks so much!

Hi Sooze! Just wanted to weigh in on the great stroller debate! I sooooo hear your point on the saving money!! Being that the umbrella is so small and compact, I would bring it especially staying at BCV because if you walk to Epcot and DHS that might be too much for little Shea's legs. Then maybe when you go to AK and MK you can rent one that way you aren't spending as much money as if you rented the entire week. Just my 2 cents of course!

wish i could weigh on on the stroller debate..but i have no experience with strollers

Just from what I saw, I think the sun is a HUGE deal. The Disney ones have super shading abilities, and I would just get nervous if your other one didn't shield from the sun very well.

I guess, since we're driving, I could always throw it in the car to use around the resorts and walks to Epcot and DHS. We DO plan on coming back to the resort often, so it'd be helpful. Great thoughts! Thanks so much!!

I feel the same way... I have never been during Spring Break with a child, so I don't know how bad the sun/heat will be I do like to have the shade, especially when she's sleeping in the stroller. Thanks for weighing in.. you had a good thought, even with no experience!

Those two reasons right there are my big ones. Leo hasn't really needed a stroller for the MK, DHS or AK in years, but if he was tired at the end of the day, or early in the monring, it was a life-saver at the resorts.

How much would it cost to trick out your own stroller with a clip-on sunshade and cup holder/s? I'm betting less than the total cost of WDW rental. I like the neoprene bottle holders with the snap closure - I think they're designed for attaching to your belt loops. But I use them on the stroller - work great! Also, I got a net "basket" to attach to the back of my old carppy umbrella stoller for like $8 at Babies R Us to hold diapers, snacks, sweaters, etc.

Yay! You're going back!

You're driving!

The stroller debate... it's been awhile... (I'm old, remember?) but I vote for bringing your own umbrella stroller. Those big blue WDW strollers scare me.

Love the pic of the kids. SO adorable. You're a lucky mama.

the stroller that we got at babies r us, ruled, we loved it, so light and compact when not using, it had a foot thing that you could kick over and fold up, also had a detachable attachable thing on the top for the sun visor...also had a nice mesh pouch on the bag thta we liked there are a couple of good pics you might have seen in our TR.

i am against paying for strollers there, we used it everywhere on property and so glad we had it.

and for under 20 bucks, we didnot care if it did get stoller or damaged on the under belly of the plane.

And this is why I love the DIS... super ideas! I think next weekend I'm going to price some 'better' umbrella strollers that come with a sun shade, then add extras, like the net 'basket'.

Thanks for the thoughts, V!!
