We used our same strategy at DL that we do at WDW. DH is in charge of getting the FPs. He gets them from the beginning and keeps getting them when our time allows. We do not use them until after 2:30/3:00 when the crowds start showing up so that we don't have to wait in the long lines. The FPs do not expire for the day.

The one thing that I remember is that to get to Fantasmic from Wishes you go through Frontierland. Think Fs together.

Status Check?

It's eerily quiet on our little board.

What's everyone doing?

We're getting our last minute lists made and checked off, most of the bags have been "sample packed" to test for quantity, and we've been looking at the marinetraffic site to check the route of our future home... well, if only for a week.

DW and I are both teachers , so we're spending a lot of time at school so we can leave with less stress and worry about what needs to be done when we get back to get ready for the year.

Let's post our last minute thoughts!

Ben, Jenny, Lily, and Grandma Dot

Hanging out at Disneyland en route to Vancouver. Caitie's hit a wall today (not unusual after 4 days of non-stop park going). So she and I are having a quiet night in the hotel while the rest of the family are out riding rides and watching the World of Color.

See everyone Tuesday!

Lisa, make sure you have your passports, camera and a change or two of underwear. All else you can do without if you forget something.

How fun! We were hoping to change plans and leave early but with my mom getting sick, we nixed that idea. She has bloodwork today and monday just before we leave for the airport. Hoping all is well.

Have fun Lisa and thanks again for your help with the hotel. We get in Monday night!

See you in Canada!

Making lists and checking them at least twice. Will pack tomorrow, we leave Sunday morning for Vancouver. Still have a little work on FE gifts. Wish I was home now, this will be a very long day at work. After the heat and hunidity we have been having this week we are looking forward to some refreshing weather/temperatures. It has been "Florida" hot but not quite "Florida" humid.

Looks like the weather we are heading to is the weather we had here up until late June. low 60s and showers every day.

Someone on our other meet thread said that they just got back last week and the forecast called for rain everyday but it hardly ever did. Vancouver is going to be beautiful with the temps getting up to 77 on Sunday!!!

FL isn't as hot as NC lately. Today it says that the temp is 90 in Orlando with a heat index of 100. Right now we are at 95 with an index of 108. I am VERY glad that it will be early and a bit cooler when we show up at the airport with our jackets, the low is only suppose to get to 78. Looking forward to enjoying the cooler temps for a bit.
