Care to share info on your awesome deal? We're going to US/IOA a couple of days during our trip this time and I haven't bought tickets yet.

I will happily share
Although I think it's only a good deal if you're only going for one day like us.

On dreams unlimited they have a 1 day/2 park ticket including round trip mears transport from WDW hotels.

for $85.99!

Not bad when you consider the 1 day/2 park ticket on its own is $89.99!

Thanks, but you're right - that may not be the best deal for us as we will have our vehicle and won't need transportation. Thanks for sharing, though!

I wanted to eat at Raglan Road and listen to the duelling pianos, but no one else wanted to.

I don't think there are dueling pianos at Raglan Road. The live entertainment, which does start at 9:00 p.m. consists of their house band "Tuskar Rock" and their Irish dancer.

Dueling pianos can be found at Jellyrolls at the BoardWalk.

We are spending 2 weeks in Disney for our honeymoon in October, and we are soooo excited!! This is our first time using our new DVC points, and to top it off we are spending the first week in a Bay Lake view room at BLT We will be in The World October 12-25: first 7 nights at BLT and next 6 at BWV. We are planning on MNSSHP on the 18th, and we have lots of other plans and ADR's on the books- including Cat 1 seating at Hoop Dee Doo!

The best ticket deal that I found, was undercover tourist. The link was thru Mousesavers. If you sign up on Mousesavers, they send you the link.

Ok, question for anyone going near Halloween... we were planning on going to MK on Friday, October 30th. This would be our one and only MK day while we're there, and it fits best into our touring schedule. However, I just read that the Orlando public schools have an inservice day on the 30th, so kids will be out. Would you avoid MK on a day when local kids are off school? Should I try to rearrange our days?

I would perhaps re-schedule, but then Friday is meant to be a pretty good day for MK so if it compltely throws out your plans then don't get too worried.

As long as you get there good and early and use fastpass I'm sure you'll have a great day.
