Back from WDW and another great trip. I was proud of th family,they kept up the commando plan from 8:00 AM to 12:00 AM at Epcot. That's right, the 16 hour day. We found that going over to Welcome Home Wednesday was a nice way to give us a break during the day, and we did boat over to BWV, which provided some extra rest time.

Maybe we should go over there and start posting how bad it is. Will everyone cancel their WDW trips?

You know we don't use DP anymore, and I found myself eating would may be considered a snack credit for lunch some of the time and then dinner at 5. I know people say that is early, but that is our normal meal time with our dds. Also, oldest turned 10 this year and is considered an adult for the meal plans. We paid the adult meal price for her at the buffets, but at some of the other restaurants, they let her order of the kids menu as she really doen't eat that much and her taste hasn't evolved for much more.

I was keeping up with your trip report and I am so glad you 1) made it home safely and 2) your family had such a wonderful time. You all participated in things I had no idea about so I am excited to get more info when I go with my hunny, so we will be ready once we take the kids.

I wish all these evil people would cancel their trips I really was just shocked on several sites and forums where people just said whatever. I want a Fairy godmother who can turn them into something, I don't know what but something other than complainers. It's like "Hello, it's Disney! Get a Dole Whip and a smile and sit down."

I kept it out of my report, but I noticed there were some extra rude people there Sunday and Monday. I guess it was due to the holiday. It got better as the week progressed. I just don't get it. They are in the happiest place - be happy or leave.

I feel sorry for people who really don't understand the "Magic" of Disney. I love rollercoasters and fun activities a LOT. Nothing compares to the Disney experience tho.

Let's see what can make people rude during a WDW vacation, I can't really think of a reason, but maybe a lack of planning could play a factor here, once they realize how much there is to do, and how much they are not getting accomplished, or they planned all the rides down to the order & the minute and it's not going so smooth I can see the rude factor kick in, but then again some are that way all the time

Congratulations to all the members of The WDW Commando Club, we have passed over 100,000 views Over the last couple of years we have shared tips, plans, and basically how to get as much Magic as we can into our days at WDW

With hitting over 100,000 views I would think there are a lot of on the fence Commando lurkers, and it's time for you to come join us

We choose the Commando way of touring not because we have to, but because we want to and we enjoy all the planning that comes with it

Everyone has their own touring style, and there is no perfect plan, so all we can do is keep trying to improve planning strategies

Until the day of the PERFECT touring plan there will always be a Commando Club

Your're right. I felt that magic on our Disneymoon and then returning with our dds.

I don't think it's planning. On our Disneymoon, I didn't know there were 4 parks or that Disney had transportation. DW had looked some of it up, but she really had no idea either.

Norm your right it's not planning, it's the Lack of planning, without knowing much about WDW it is overwhelming, and could spark the rudeness, I have run into the other side though, the one's who are friendly in lines fishing for any info you are willing to give them, I like this type a lot better I'll give them a few really good tips that will put a little magic in their day

On our Disneymoon, my wife planned out the trip, she made the fancy folder and notecards, but once we got there it just wasn't panning out, it was years since I was at WDW but you can't take away what you know, and was able to salvage the trip, she said I have my folder and notecards I don't know what went wrong

Well back in the day when everyone was into their cars the saying was Chrome Don't Get You Home, So in a WDW aspect I guess you can say fancy folder's and notecards don't make magic happen, you can have all the info in the world but if it's not executed properly it's not worth all that much Since then she leaves 95% of the planning in my hands

I love coming up with new and exciting things to do on each trip, If someone says they have done and seen everything there is to do at WDW, they should be called out on that one since they change and add things all the time, just between our trip in August to the next trip in Nov, I already have a lot of new things planned that were not there in August

I've been trying since I became an official commando to find these pictures on the web. This is the link for the youtube video of this short cartoon.... it's totally all of us here! Especially when Donald is given his "assignment"
Enjoy everyone!

Amazing! I remember seeing those cartoons a long time ago!

Donald has always been my favorite Disney character and as seen in these cartoons, he is the ultimate commando!

Donald has to be our mascot - he isn't wearing underwear.
