Brian, I came up with a rough morning plan for HS, if everything works in our favor we can get it done in no time

Rope drop head to Jedi training sign ups, once the wives and kids are in line we head to TSM for FP, meet them at Star Tours hit that, if they are able to get the 1st Jedi training do that and hit Star Tours again after the show, by that time it would be nice if our FP was ready to use, head to RNRR get FP's then use the TSM FP, after TSM head back over to RNRR, if the FP is not ready to use do TOT, even if we are delayed I'm confident we could have all the major stuff done by noon You in

That's a lot of running. But I am in. Gotta make sure DW is cool with that, as she doesn't ride TOT or RNR, maybe she will take DD to animation academy during this.

It's really not that bad, considering everything is really not that far apart, as compared to AK where everything is so spread out

YOu tired me out just reading that. Good thing about DHS is that it is not that spread out. Bad thing is that it's impossible to hit every show. The times overlap too much. Plus, the FP end time frame is impacting my strategy.

Hi All! I got back from my WDW trip on Sunday but I managed to come down with a nasty sinus infection so I hadn't checked in to fill you in on what I did and didn't do. One of my son's (DS9) was suddenly nervous to ride several rides and the time change (which happened on the day we arrived- so we really lost 2 hours because of the time zone difference) apparently made him extra grumpy! I had to deviate from my original plans but it was ok, I didn't want to deal with a grouchy pants kid all week.

Here's the short-ish version:
DisneyQuest...... Even with the discounted tickets I got, I don't think it was worth it at all. The most fun games had lines and as it turned out, my boys wanted to play the games like Air Hockey or Skee ball that they play all the time at home when we go to pizza places or Main Event. We didn't even do 3 of the better rides because the lines were so long and/or the game/ride was closed for whatever reason.

Characters in Flight.... I liked this alot but with the wind speed that day we waited for about 45 minutes because they were taking less than 10 people up at a time. I hadn't counted on that long of a wait.

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom..... I'm so sad because we did not do this at all! Both of my kids literally said "Do we HAVE to do that?" I was way pouty and said "YES!" but I could tell they were gonna be party poopers so I skipped it.

I've decided I have to take a solo trip!! My kids didn't cooperate with my Commando plan this trip. Now I'm suspicious that they are not really my kids....

My daughter is not very adventurous.

On our first trip, she was 6. And EVERY attraction, she was hesitant to ride.

I always got the exact same questions:

Is it Fast? Does it go High? Do I have to go on it?

I reassured her that I wouldn't put her on anything Fast or High, that would scare her.

The WORST was a couple of days in, and I had enough of hearing it. I thought by this point I had earned her trust to not put her in danger. But we went to The Jungle Cruise, and she FREAKED OUT while boarding. She didn't know what it was, and it was like I was killing her. I couldn't let her "not go on", because that would be her crutch for the rest of the trip (so I apologized to those who rode with us in our boat), but after that we had a "talk". I told her she didn't have to go on anything she didn't want to, but assured her I understood her hesitancy, and wouldn't hurt her. But if she kept up the drama, no one would have a fun vacation, and we probably wouldn't return. Needless to say from that point on, she was an angel and had a great vacation.

we didn't like Disney Quest when DW went there on our honeymoon, so have not taken dds there. Dds and I liked character in flights, but we had no line and beautiful weather. I was glad we did it, but probably won't again. I want to try the eat in movie place.

Hope your feeling better:good vibes

Sorry to hear that the kids were giving you resistance, go figure you would think they would want to more then us I bet they will learn there lesson real quick if you start saying to them they aren't going next time

Characters In Flight - you are much braver then me, no way I'll go on that I'm a zoo pass member and I can go on the one at the zoo, but that's one thing I will not do

What is your input on the new FP system, does it work in our favor, mess us up big time, no big deal

Do you mean Sci-Fi Dine In Theater at DHS? We ate there last year. I liked it mostly cuz I loved the car tables and old movie trailers playing!

I like sci-fi. Food is not great but it is really cold in there. A great place to cool off and rest. I was thinking about the new dine in movie place in DTD. I think it is AMC? You get to sit and eat dinner while you watch a new movie release.
