Arrived back home at 1:30am today (Sunday).

It was sooooo awesome! The heat & humid really did me in (literally). In the past I've always gone later in the fall, because the humidity was at 97% it really squashed the commando out of me. So I didn't get to see everything that I would have usually like to get to, but it was still great, and have many new experiences.

LOVED, loved, loved AKL, thought the new restaurants that we tried (Artist Pointe, Tutto Italia) were great, alittle disappointed with the lobster I had at Narcoosees, but place was great. And for my leftover TS credit we went to..... Sanaa...very good DH loved it. Boma was great as usually.

Blue Man Group was fantastic!!!!!

Price will vary, depending on how early you book, if you have AAA they over a discount, and if you get coach or sleeper.

You pick it up in Lorton VA (about 10miles outside DC) it leaves at 3:30pm and arrives in Sanford FL around 8-8:30 (39 miles from WDW)

It might take a couple hours longer then if you drove straight through, but you can relax an sleep on the train and be fresh in the A.M. for WDW, where if you drove you would be wiped out

Price wise we try to book early, for the 3 of us with a AAA discount and a oversized vehicle, in August it was $849 round trip, for Nov we booked later it was $1039 round trip, but unlike flying you have your car with you and you can pack as much as you want

We did go to Epcot on the 30th birthday- they gave out 30th anniversary buttons at the gate. They were selling speciality pins & merchandise at MouseGear but the line up was 3hrs to get in....so no way I was waiting that long to buy stuff the I got in Epcot 27 yrs ago. They also had special fireworks but we had dinner at Narcoosee & then went to MK to caught the ELP- I haven't seen it since they updated it. Disney took my favourite parade & made it better!
I asked for more transportation cards on boats & monorail, but I kept getting the same answer "nope, all out...haven't seen any recently"- I think cuz there were no kids with us, they were holding out on us.

About a month before a trip I like to visit What Do You Think Threads, I just read them don't post since being a Commando most likely you will get blasted and these threads are how The WDW Commando Club came to be

Anyway the reason why I visit these threads is to see what others have planned, with this info I know whether the plan I came up with is Golden or needs to be kicked up a noche, 95% of these threads are textbook, seems like a lot of people are afraid of thinking outside the box, but knowing what everyone else is doing gives me a upper hand

A long time ago I used to post on some of these What Do You Think threads, trying to give fellow guests some info that they may not know or that might be helpful, but that can backfire big time, some have such a stereotype of Commando's that anything we could add is just crazy, but then again you mock what you do not understand

Although being stereotyped sometimes is not all that bad, since we are stereotyped as those who run around the parks like a chicken with it's head cut off, or non underwear wearers, oh if they only knew, it's nothing like that at all, we are just planners who want to make the most out of our trip and have a full day of touring trying to experience all that WDW has to offer, I guess we are just a different breed of cat

Totally agree!!! Had a great time at the Monroe, WA swap meet, but it was huge!! DS8 was terrified of the heavy crowds, so I had to give him constant reassurance the entire time we were there. Bonus was finding a Sonic Drive Inn close to the border YAHOO!! Don't have them up here in the Great White North. Am start to think of getting a GAC for him when we do visit WDW, as he's got a variety of learning/language problems. It mirrors Down's Syndrome in many ways, yet he shows no outward appearances of it. Heavy crowds and long lines over 30 mins really bother him, so it might be an idea to get one when we do visit. We don't treat him any differently than our DS9, but there are at times with his behavior that I notice it more. Cuteness is his self defense mechanism, and he's got all the teachers at his school wrapped around his little finger. It's our Thanksgiving up here in Canada, so I'm off to prep the turkey. Have a great day!!

I received my Unofficial Guide to WDW 2013 edition yesterday I am completely ecstatic!!! This is my first time purchasing any Disney travel material and I love the book already. It's making me super excited! I'm looking forward to several trips with the kids and I haven't even booked/ finished planning the one hunny and I are going to do solo, lol. By the way, the day before the book came I received a call for an interview. It's a little while off but I will keep you all posted, thanks to all who wished me well.

I loved the UG, we bought one 2007 edition for our last trip and it was pretty helpful!
I know several things have changed since then (specially Toontown turning into New Fantasyland), but after the massive planning using my knowledge of the parks, the Disboards (and WDW Commando Club! ) and all other sort of free online info (wdwinfo, allears, disney food blog...) I'm unsure if I should buy the new Unofficial guide.
I believe that the planning tips probably won't have changed much, am I correct?

I've never read any of the books, but that is only going to be 1 way of doing things

If you go with multiple sources of tips, info, encounters, touring plans etc, and take a little from each, you can come up with a Awesome plan of your own
