only 3842 hours till we go home to WDW, Ok that doesn't sound too exciting, only 160 more days till WDW, ok that still doesn't sound that great Cabin Fever setting in, it's getting depressing, need to cancel a few months between now and Aug, hey clock goes ahead a hour in a couple weeks, awesome making time already

Ok, see now for dancing human sized animals who wouldn't get excited?!

If I went to one of those count down by hour sites I would go seriously coo-coo and not for coco puffs. What do you need to cancel There you go, positive thinking

If say the months of June & say July (get rid of the 4 letter months) got cancelled that would bring me like 61, 62 days closer, they cancelled Halloween this year in NJ so it could be done

My vote is for July & Aug, when it get's hot and humid!! I know the agony of the wait, as my DL solo trip is not till the end of Nov. It's turning into a Commando trip, as on Thurs I won 2 tickets to Knott's Berry Farm, which I now have to squeeze into my trip schedule somewhere. I've never gone to Knott's, so am looking forward to seeing it for the first time. I know nothing about it, so am doing alot of research on it via the net at the moment.

Commando planning is not limited to WDW, Commando planning is a way of life!

I love our motto, and it's perfect for the way we plan trips. To me knowledge is power, and the more research you do, the better your trip will be. By doing the research, you avoid the basic mistakes that the average person makes when planning a trip. And you end up accomplishing a great deal more than the average tourist. Safe to say that since I know very little about Knott's I'm doing tons of research, so when I do go, I'll know exactly what I want to do. So that I'll accomplish everything that I want to do there. It's the Commando way!

Purchased our Seaworld Entertainment platinum passes, now when I need a Commando fix, I can go to Seseme Place, Sea World, Busch Gardens (Williamsburg or Tampa) and any of their watermarks, along with preferred parking, until 12/31

Of course in August we will be taking advantage of BG Tampa & Seaworld along with the water parks, that will pay for the passes on it's own
Any visits to Seseme Place and BG Williamsburg will be freebie's and I intend to wear the pass out until the scanner at the entrance says "you again"

Well you know how the song goes " can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street" My answer is Yes, Yes I can, it's in Langhorne PA, it is a Sea World owned park, it's a water park, has regular dry rides, shows, parade & character meet & greets, it is about a hour from us so it's a great place to go to get away for a little while

The Busch Garden parks the last couple years have built smaller versions of some of Sesame Places rides, and now do meet & greets with some characters

Thought you guys would get a chuckle out of this. My foray into a non Disney park (Knott's Berry Farm), has turned into a fact finding mission for the Christmastime thread for the Disneyland forum. So I'm going undercover to get current info on what Knott's has in the way of decorations and entertainment, and what has the park has to offer during Christmas. The DL board's Christmas time thread doesn't have anything current regarding this, so am going to do up an elaborate trip report for it once I get back from my trip, loaded with pics. Time to get out the long trench coat, spy glass, and the secret decoder ring. Have a great day everyone!!
