So I'm trying to do this touring plan for the friends...and my two "go to" apps are Undercovertourist free app, and touringplans.com (paid subscription) and in the world I use the Disney official app for lines.
So for those "techie" commandos which apps are you using & why?
I am like you, I use those same two for making my plans. I don't typically use on in the parks. I just have not needed to.

WOW, cool new fact. I have a question if anyone has every watched the show "Full House". . . I know in the show when they had the beach boys on, Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) and he played the drums, but am I imagining that in the real Kokomo vid he was in it as well?

That is John Stamos in the video, he often tours with them playing drums, the Beach Boys were also the 1st guests to stay at The Grand Floridian

So glad that I found this thread! I am a self-admitted commando and love to plan everything!! I think that I sometimes I kind of scare people though because I start to talk fast and get excited and and my excitement just kind of bubbles over! Anyway, I have planned quite a few Disney trips for others including our own. Can't wait to keep reading all of the responses thus far!! I have finally found my own people!!

You are member #225I can relate to sometimes scaring people when someone starts to talk about a Disney trip and getting excited, but after they talk to a few people they usually come around and really want to hear what you have to say, it might be more then they can handle, but then again not everyone is a Commando

After searching Restaurants.com I found many great places to eat in the Orlando Area. Since I'm going to have a few days next trip that we visit other places I think I might give at least one of them a try, these are my choices maybe someone has been to one of these

My leading choice right now is
- A Land Remembered (A Legendary Orlando Steakhouse), they have Chateaubriand at $125 (haven't seen that on a menu in a long time)

My 2 runner's up are
- Everglades Restaurant at Rosen Centre Hotel
- BB Kings Restaurant & Blues Club

Fried pickles don't sound weird at all, my wife loves them, we found a great BBQ place by us she always gets the pickles, a onion loaf & mango pork chops, I go for the rack of St Louis ribs

Do they serve the pickles in wedges or chips

They are chips. My fave besides the pickles are the catfish nuggets and friend green tomatoes. Yes they have regular catfish and ribs as well, but the nuggets are so tender, umm umm good
