I was looking at the calendar based on Maroo's response above and I'm not sure I understand your Oct. 3rd day. You are saying the lighted parade is extended, but the caledar has MK closing at 7pm b/c of the MNSSHP. So if you want to stay late you would need the MNSSHP tickets. I'm new, but that is the way I understand it. Please someone correct me if that is wrong. Do they start to kick people out at 7pm??? (I've never been there) To see the parade and wishes on the 3rd you would need those special tickets???? I think.

If you are looking to maybe going to MNSSHP on the 6th then maybe you can switch your Sunday and Monday. On Monday Oct. 4th MK is open until 10pm with the electrical parade at 9pm and wishes at 10pm. That is according to the calendar on the disney site.

I hope that helps. Please confirm this w/ someone b/c I'm not an expert and have never been to disney.

Dance to the petals on the streams running down,
they're there for you singing, just to lose that frown.
Dance from the song you feel beat within your heart,
it beats within you naturally loving from the start.

!!!! I kid you not I am getting blonder by the day...

http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/hours...sttimeout=1000


http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/hours/octfw10.cfm


OK I now know what I was doing wrong, I was confusing the electric parade with illuminations.. so TBH atm I'm not sure if sched is right at all hahaha

I did swap some things around and will double check everything tomorrow
luckily we have no real prefrences in what day we do what, DS(wish kiddo) says he doesn't mind which days we do disney and which days we do universal because he is excited about both as long as he gets a chance to get to a few rides and see the imaginations pavillion

I will continue to remind myself to ... Goooo with the flow
all else we will have some wicked good laughs cause as a rule of thumb this irish family sure does keep murphys law alive and well.. what can go wrong will and for that we will just laugh :}

LOL and now i need to figure out if you can have tickets to MNSSHP to use by itself or if your suppose to use it to extend a ticket that your already using .. because that will also change the days we do what on hahaha

Someone on here said that Honey I shrunk the Audience is no longer playing at WDW. It's the Michael Jacksons 3D show. Sorry I forgot the name. I know Disneyland did the same.

"Honey I Shrunk the Audience", the 3D movie, is no longer showing at the Imagination Pavilion in EPCOT. It is now Captain EO starring Michael Jackson. There is a playground in Studios called "Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set". It is a playground...be sure to stick your hand in the dog's nose and listen!

Bless your heart! Those calendars are confusing!

When you post your new schedule, make sure I look at it. I can be spacey and miss the post altogether. And I will double check it against the DIS schedule and Tour Guide Mike and make sure we are not missing anything.

Actually, I think this must have changed. We just got our info. We're getting two day two park hoppers for Universal so we can hop from park to park on the same day.

Hi! Just had a quick look at your must do list. You didn't include Toy Story Mania at Hollywood Studios. Its one of the best rides there and really popular. Just thought I'd mention it in case you hadn't heard about it.

Looks good to me.... this coming from the person who has not looked at a schedule at all! I would def take that vacation - in a heart beat!! (you can throw me in your luggage!!! )

I noticed the MNSSHP thing too... but Maroo beat me to it as usual.... so I just didn't respond at all instead. lol. It's been a long 2 days! Both kiddos home for right now and both want full attention. I can only do so much.

I haven't been to the restaurant you picked out. You'll have to let me know how it is. I want to try to hit Disney for a day when we go to Universal, but I dunno. It's an expensive one day trip there! It's be easier to do a one day universal on a Disney trip- cheaper too.... but DD wants the Harry Potter trip.... so I dunno.

Be careful of the ant at Honey I shrunk the kids playground. It attacked Steven. He slid off the ant and hit his chin and bite his cheek pretty good. He had a nice boo boo.

Sounds like a great plan! What is the wish flight party at GKTW? Is that something new? I have never heard of it.
