We are now expecting some great pix from your trip....

thanks brother.

Oh if you're wife needs one more thing to plan. I don't know if you've done this with your previous trips, but I did a trip journal during my 2008 trip. It really helped when it came to writing my TR. I wrote mostly notes and thoughts about each day...

Just more stuff to think about....

Wow! Oregonmommy/daddy - seriously, that load of stuff is incredible! Congrats on the new camera Am I the only one that does not get everyone new clothes for a trip? We purposefully take mostly clothes that we wouldn't mind leaving there - for suitcase space issues when we come back with souvenirs

I have a system for the souvenirs, I pack all of the clothes into the medium black suitcase, I then place the medium black suitcase into the large black suitcase... I then use the large suitcase to bring home the junk, oh I mean souvenirs...

Hey now, THAT's a pretty good idea I wonder if I could do that and still stay under the Delta/Alaska luggage weight limit

Jordan, if you're like any of the guys I know, 4 shirts a couple pair of shorts and a new pack of undies (wether you need them or not) and you've got a new wardrobe.

Winkers, I do the same thing... I love me an empty suitcase...

And for those of you counting, yes I normally have 2 empty suitcases to bring "stuff" home in...

If you do Crystal Palace, the restrooms inside the restaurant get pretty busy from what I understand. If they are, go to the ones in between the CP and Casey's Corner.

Jordan... I expect a full report on every bathroom in Disney World... I want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly... I have a few digestive "issues" as I like to call them... And I am always making sure I know where the nearest potty break is...

I woke up this morning and was not thrilled to see that the park hours are not up yet... Don't they know that I have 18 lists to make between the time they post them and June 17th our ADR date... Those lists take time people... And since we are on the Best Coast, oh sorry, I mean West Coast... I have to wake up at 4 am to call Disney Dining, and since our trip is 14 days long, and I can only book the first 10 days, I get the pleasure of waking up at 4 am on the 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, and 21st...

Terry is waking up with me on the 17th, so I have backup... I am really hoping we are able to get the Le Cellier ressie... I scheduled it on the 10th day of my 90+10 rule, so I thought that would make my chances better...

My hubby is sleeping in today, but when he rolls out of bed, we will get this show on the road with an update...

With all the bathroom hints you give, I think maybe you need to see a doctor about all the trips you have to take.
