Why would you want to do that? I stopped running from ride to ride and just walk from ride to ride.

It looks like my next trip no matter where we are I'll be looking for some kind of card, badge or trinket
WDW is going to kill me...but what a way to go

I'm still into pin collecting and that's over 15 years old...then cards, now badges...Disney really knows how the feed the addiction . (please feed the monkey/mickey on my back!!!!)

Ok, dumb basic question here....I'll get an answer faster from Commando's then looking it up online, so with 7 day ph- is that only at the four parks or can you use a full day at a water parks (or is that only a plus tix?)

Although to be fair, he did let me play the Agent P game in Epcot. We tried it in France, and only got halfway through the game before our device stopped working. He made me turn it in and said he didn't want to play again! Until we had some time to kill in Norway later and then he let me play there. So maybe one day he'll let me play the Sorcerers game at MK and this new game at AK.

I am like your husband, always too busy going from ride to ride (although I can stop for good food )

I missed the joke because obviously if I stop running from ride to ride, I will be walking. . . briskly!

Yes, only four parks with PH. The Water Park and more option is what gives you full days at the water parks. . . ALSO, you only get one water park per allotment. Even if you have PH AND the water park and more option, you cannot hop from water park to water park. Example, you have a PH w/ Water Park+ for 5 days. . . Day 1: MK, Blizzard Beach, Day 2: Epcot, DHS, Day 3: Typhoon Lagoon and mini-golf, Day 4: Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. . . you have used 2 PH tickets (days 1 and 2) and all five Water park+ options (days 1, 3 and 4). Hope that helps

MWY tickets with or without park hopeer can only be used in the 4 parks.

WP&M can be used at Water Parks, Disney Quest, or Golfing... You get 1 "gate admission" to the WP&M per #of days on the MWY ticket.

Well it looks like Eduardo will be leaving Brazil soon for his WDW trip, he is not the typical stereotyped Brazilian from a tour group, He is a Brazilian WDW Commando the only one known & recognized by this club, I know that you are ready for your mission, you have done for homework, made your lists and checked them twice

The only 3 thing I want you to remember is

- Be flexible (don't plan everything down to the minute,you never know what you will encounter)
- Go with your gut feeling
- Most Important Have Fun

Have A Great Trip & GodSpeed

Hi guys! Thanks for all the tips!
I hope to have absorbed most of them or at least copied them for easy access!

I'm leaving tomorrow for Orlando! I started a TR today after passing most of last year on my PTR!

And Ron, I'll try, but I don't think I'll be able to score as many transportation cards as you always do!

So far out of the things I've seen listed for Limited Time Only (and there's not a lot out there about what's going on) Fri Sept 13th looks like a Great day to be at HS with Unleash The Villains Fri, that will last till 1am the 13th hour, I'd love to be there for that just for the M&G's alone villains are usually a hard meet & great to find

The friends that I'm doing the ADR's & trip plan are booked through AAA, -how (and how does it work) do they get Storytime & preferred fireworks viewing? vouchers/ressies etc?

They are also staying Club level AKL- is the sunrise safari only to be booked through concierges at AKL by email or ADR's?

By the time they get the info in their packet it will be booked up, but I know how to do it,, It can be booked 180days in advance (earlier the better), The Disney # to call for AAA is 407-939-7946 (pretty sure that's the number), you need the reservation # from the AAA invoice for the trip, they will also help book any ADR's or any other reservations around Disney

Then when they get the packet a few weeks before the trip it will have vouchers that they will need to bring with them.

Very important that the call is made ASAP since it has limited days and times, and gets filled up quick

Yes the sunrise Safari needs to be booked through the club level concierge.

I want to do AKV Safari. One of these years, we'll do that, we stayed there a few years ago and really enjoyed the resort.

I booked our August trip through AAA today, BUT a few things have changed, to get the $100 GC the trip would have to be more then $3000 (fell way short of that), and I'm not going to get Storytime or the Fireworks perferred viewing since you have to have a complete package (room, tickets, meal plan)

But what I did get was 10 nights/ 11 days at All Star Movies with 8 day hopper passes for 3 for under $2100

Meal plan would be a waste since I'm going other places for 3 of the days there, plus Shula's on one of our Disney days
