When are you going? How many in your party? I can tell you the way I figured to get all the meet & greets, parade and fireworks done if you like, I think it will work I was not able to complete since I went back to the room ill, but my wife and son left at around 11pm and pretty much got everything done, minus a couple of meet & greets that my son just didn't want to do

At WDW I carry with me a small pocket memo book, it has all the info you need about what's going on in the parks, it also has the days we are at the parks broken down to hours. but all those pages are blank till the end of that day Why, I have so many plans in motion when we get there that no one plan can be followed, it's a lot of quick thinking and paying attention to what's going on around us that we thrive on

So this is some of the notes of our Nov trip

Sun Nov 4
- got to All Star Movies around 10am checked in unloaded car
- ate lunch at the food court
- around 12:15 arrived at AK
- did all trails around the tree and any other small trails we found
- Flights of Wonder
- Dinosaur x2
- Pics with all the Dino statues

- 3pm take bus to POR, then water taxi to DTD, hit Lego store before our 4:55 ADR at Bongo's (was not impressed)

- After dinner bus to Contemp then Monorail to MK
- Picked up Sorcerer Cards
- Jungle Cruise
- AAA viewing for Wishes
- Stitch's Great Escape
- Buzz
- Space Mountain
- BTM
- park closed at 10


Mon Nov 5
- Epcot
- Mother Earth
- Jamminators
- By the fountain there was a meet & greet for Pinocchio & The Queen
- Son had to go to the store in Japan (money was burning a hole in his pocket) while there he got his Agent P to color and gat stamped at each country.
- Grabbed a snack at the Bakery in France
- England Alice M&G
- AAA Storytime with Mary Poppins
- piggy bank game
- back to England for Guy Fawes Day & Pooh, Tigger M&G
- Saw the British Street Performers version of Roxanne, never saw these guys before they were a riot, a must see show while doing WS
- Off to france for the street performers, it was a chef that blew a whistle with a acrobat waiter, never saw that show before either but it was pretty good
- Duffy M&G
- Back to England for the next street performance show this time it was Romeo & Edna
- around 4 we head out to get a bus to the Poly for a 5:10 Adr at Ohana's
- walked around resort checked in at 5:09 we were seated got a Great seat right were the guy that does all the entertainment is, so we were basically in everything he was doing
-about 6:30 get to HS for the night EMH till 11pm
- Sorcerer Mickey M&G
- Star Tours
- Did some pics
- RNRRR
- Met up with Tim who was waiting for us at the exit of RNRRR
- Tim toured with us the rest of the night and 2 things noticed at the HS EMH a lot of dead space between attractions that are open Star Tours& and it's hard to find a adult drink (did find beer, but was looking for something better)
- Star Tours
-TOT
- TSM
-Star Tours
Park Closed

Tues Nov 6

- HS a quick 3 hr tour opened 9
- TSM
- Wreck It Ralph M&G
- Donald & Daisy M&G
- Sully & Mike
- Army Guy
- Cars
-Phinieas & Ferb
- Muppets 3D
- Star Tours
- 12noon boat to Epcot
- Had to go to the store in Japan again
- Did some shopping before our 1:20 add at LeCellier, Food was great, this will most likely be our last time there, I would never pay 2 credits to eat there, portions are not that big and feel they are a bit overpriced for what you get, If we do go there again it will be out of pocket
- Living With The Land haven't done this in years my son really liked it
- Chase photo
- Mission Space Orange
- visited the chase lounge (nothing great free soda)
- Universe of Energy (nap time)
Left caught monorail and headed for MK
- Got more Sorcerer cards
- Jungle Cruise, son got to steer ship and got a guest skipper card
- BTM x2
- Got into the new Fantasyland, sweet bonus, Did the Ariel & Belle M&G's, toured Be our guest (awesome looking place but wasn't impressed by the menu, might be passing on this one)
- Rode Ariel's ride (forget what it was called)
- Space Mountian
- Buzz
- Jungle Cruise again
- BTM x2 again
- Last ride of the night Jungle Cruise (guess you can tell by now my son favorite rides)
To Be Cont. starting with Weds

Well, you could go back and look at these two threads and gauge it yourself. the bag you sent must have had a whole in it. It's empty!

Nov trip cont

Weds Nov 7

- 10am Seaworld Total stay 4hrs, we got through the whole park a lot of things closed, did our favorite show with the pirate sealions, they had a new turtle movie that was 360 degrees that was really cool, did some photos and was out of there by 2

- back to the resort drop off van catch the bus to Epcot
- ADR at Teppen Edo at 4 was seated promptly great dinner as usual

- caught the 5pm show in England for the street performers they did Knights of the round table, as you can tell we really liked this show

- Then it was MoRockin we were in the front row, I was happy to see it was my favorite bellydancer , at the end I tried to get my son to take a pic with her but he was being shy, so I got my pic with her instead

- Then we saw the Dennis DeYoung (from STYX) concert, it was great to see that I'm not the only one in the song Come Sail Away that has the need to play air guitar at one point It was a really good show

- did a little shopping and watched Illuminations

- EMH time 1st we headed the M&G
- Nemo
-Turtle Talk
- Figment
- Mission Space
- Mother Earth
- Back to the resort

Next up Thurs

Hey Commandos

Ron, I love the TR, it sounds like you guys packed in so much. It makes me feel like the plans I have in store for my trips (prayerfully next year) aren't so bad. If your son can go all day like that, my mom surely will be fine (she's been a bunch of times, to say we went a lot when I was a kid is a understatement). I know that she likes to relax however, so it's cool to see that I have not over-packed our days.

I just thought I would share this with you guys. . .
I was at the mall bus stop waiting in the ridiculous cold that is Michigan winter; when I saw. . . wait for it. . . a refillable mug!!! There was a guy reading a book and listening to his CD player and I saw him take a sip and BAM, mickey splashing! lol I had asked him where he had stayed and he said POP. Now, perhaps I should not say this on the DIS, but we both went on to converse about how they know where you purchased the mug from resort to resort. It was just really cool to see a piece of Disney here at home.

I didn't know they knew what resort the mug came from We got the mugs free last trip it was included in the package, I ended up filling them around 6am for breakfast, got my wife coffee but she really didn't like the brand, I got coke and mixed it with some rum as a morning wake me up before we left Unless you plan on staying at the resort all day at $15 I really can't see them being worth it since you can't refill them at the parks

We got a stroller for my son after the 1st day, just so he could take cat naps along the way, he was full of energy but he did bomb out every once and awhile, that was shopping time, he is 7 but I really don't want to have to carry him around when he got tired, my back would have been shot
