Anyway, we're sitting here at the dig site pool while our kids play in the water and we're contemplating dinner. Some of the pics are on Facebook, and the rest will come when we get back.

Tomorrow we hit the World at rope drop.
Gotta love the Earl.

You will have to let me know if rope drop is worth getting up for, that's something we have never done.

I set up the stream on Moodio.com and then pointed my Blackberry to the site and used the cassette tape thingy connected to the headphone jack.

I've got DIS radio, Radio Disney and about 4 other Disney audio streams setup on my Moodio account. Nothing like streamin' the Mouse!

That's awesome! I've got mine set up already, but I was a bit confused when I started the "Disney Holiday" music and they were still playing Halloween music. I mean, my Christmas lights are up, so it must be Christmas, right?

I thought the same thing. If Mickey's got the Christmas lights up then the Christmas tunes should be playin'.

All,

Just found this thread on the forum and I think I found the perfect place to ask my question.

I'm taking my family down to Disney World from 3/13 - 3/20 next year. Many of you other dads will recognize that as the first week of the NCAA tournament. I expect my Xavier Musketeers to be in the tournament again this year and wanted to know where some good places would be to catch the games that my Muskies will play in the tournament.

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Welcome to the thread! The first place I can think of to watch the games would be the ESPN club over at the Boardwalk. Should be plenty of TVs tuned in to the tourney there.

Maybe we can get the luck of the draw with my Cincy Bearcats against yer' Musketeers.

Rope drop is absolutely worth while getting up to go and see. I think that should be something all Dis Dads should go to at least once.

Can I get a Man Law on that!!!!

Congrats on the safe arrival, I thought the 7 hours of nothing after you get past Fayetteville was boring in daylight, can't imagine it in the dark.
