Your plan looks good. We didn't plan a single park on the same day! Ah well. We'll probably see you hanging around the resort.

It's late and I need to head to bed. I'll probably comment more tomorrow.

The only comment I can really remember is about your AK day. If you aren't watching the parade at 3:45 you need to be strategic in your leaving. You said leave around 4. On our first trip, I left before the parade began to get something from the room while DH stayed behind with DS at the Boneyard. Then we were going to meet up at Epcot. He got caught in the parade traffic and it was a NIGHTMARE. He is pretty adamant on our upcoming trip that we be outta there before the parade for our afternoon break.

Happydog, your ADR plans look good. As far as going against TGM and Touringplans, they usually pick their best parks in part due to which parks are not having EMH in the morning or evening. We have gone against touring plans' advice a couple of times -- just be prepared for more crowds -- it probably won't bother you too much.

Your ADRs look great! We totally enjoyed our dinner at Sci-Fi. And how fun to have a romantic evening out with the DH!

Oh! Nuts!

Well, again, you are right! We will be at the resort at the same time! Maybe we can meet up at the resort? I would enjoy that!

I was up pretty late last night, typing all that out.

So much depends on if we will be able to get the ADRs we want... I am a little nervous about that... Your comment about AK is a good one and I will put it into my spreadsheet -- which I have been crafting

Okay, I am going to be a "believer" here... okay okay... I figure the am hours will be busy, but we'll get out of there just as the reinforcements start to arrive. At least that is the "subject to change if it looks like rain" plan, plan... And thank you for the ADR voice of confidence... I think the ADRs will work. I doubt very much (after everything we have read) That we will get Le Cellier.... you know, we have been to your beloved AK... Ate at Boma, and loved it. Did you end up making reservations at the new place, is it in Kidani Village? I remember you mentioning this on your PTR...

Yeah, I hope so. We almost made it to Sci-Fi in Nov. We were so wiped out, we ended up just going to hang on the boardwalk instead. What I did this time is make a plan to have dessert. After the boardwalk -- we'll walk back to the park. I think it will work...

BEACH CLUB VILLAS??? Wow, what a great time for me to finally realize you have a PTR!! There's gotta be a story for BCV!!! I am so jealous!

Remind me to have a chat with you about the Auto Train. I won't do it on my very first post, but we should "talk" a little about it.

BCV's....at Christmas, too.... I can't believe it.

HI! Yeah well there is a story there. I can't believe it either... we rented points from an owner... VERY inexpensively. And do you know whose idea it was?!?!?! Brace yourself. My DH. He is really good at knocking me over in my chair these days... I think he is keeping me distracted because I have recently told him that we should start thinking of baby #3
And I am NOT kidding about that... But that is a whole NON DIS story!!! OFF TOPIC, OFF TOPIC But for now I am too excited to concentrate on anything else but June. And of course everyone else's plans, and YOUR race on SATURDAY!!! We had to pounce on this or it was going to be gone...

AnyHOO, re the car train, sure! Lets talk about that -- umm but ONLY if you don't have some sort of horror story, b/c if you do, you cannot, must not, tell me that!!! I am already angst-ridden!
