Lots of detailed planning, and my favorite - a day off in between. I will second the CR for EWP. When we have stayed at BLT, It starts there at 9:30 PM and makes it way over. I'm not sure if the time changed for June. But, if you parked at MK, walked to the CR terrace for Wishes, and then down to the dock for the EWP, that is a great view. There is also a beach behind the CR where you could get some chairs, but you couldn't see the castle from there.

Be aware of potential lung soreness if you've never breathed in compressed air before breathing from a reg and air from a scuba tank. The air inside the tanks is compressed and very dry, and can inflame the lungs if they are not used to it. Once you get used to it, your lungs are fine, but it's something to be aware of, especially if you are flying. Take this advice from an x scuba diver. Scuba diving is amazing, and have had some incredible experiences underwater over the years, before I had kids.

It's been kinda slow on the Dis scene with Rumors & News lately so being a little bored, I'm trying to complete my Sorcerer Card set, I got some trades in the works and if everything pans out , I'll only need 1 more card to complete the set, of course once I complete the 60 cards you can get in the park, then the challenge is to get the other 10 cards, I already have one but these a tough since you would only get 1 of these cards with the game you buy at $14 and there is no way of knowing what card is in the game

Then I have to find the MNSSHP card but I have the MVMCP card to trade for that so it might not be that hard

I hope by the time August comes around I have the set completed with all the cards

For those of you that are collecting the Sorcerer of the Kingdom Cards, I found a Great Thread here on the Dis Boards to trade cards, I've made some trades and I'm down to the last card to complete the 60 card set

The name of the thread is Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Trading, so if you have some duplicate cards and still need others give it a try, it's a good source of Disney Magic in the down time.

There is also a couple traders who have Transportation Cards, I've also made a couple trades with them

Hello Commando's
I'm back in Disney mode. I have updated my PTR and would like to update it some more. The only thing is, I would like to begin to add photos. Does anyone know how to do this on here? I see we have people posting plans, that is wonderful. It is super helpful to see what everyone else does. With school I am noticing how now I have to put everything on a schedule or I just don't get to it, that includes my Disney planning Hope everyone is well.

First, get a photo upload account like Photobucket. There are others out there that are free. Then you upload your picture to that site. Then, copy the IMG code and paste it here.

Thanks for the picture info. Your list reminds me I need to make sure to have WPE and EoS on our itinerary as I have some items I want to try. Have you reserved BOG yet? I would do so asap, it has been filling up ridiculously fast.

Yes, yesterday was my 180 day mark. I couldn't get the +10 to work on the Disney website, App, etc so I called. I was hoping to get it around 6:00 PM, but I did get the day I wanted. It fills up quickly.

I'm waiting for my 180 mark to hit so I can start booking ADRs. Here is what the calendar looks like right now.

Monday: Fly in, DTD in the afternoon/evening
tuesday: MK, BBB at 8am, CRT late breakfast
Wednesday: EPCOT
Thursday: AK
Friday: MNSSHP
Saturday: Switch resorts, pool day, Anniversary dinner
Sunday: Cape Canaveral/Gatorland
Monday: DHS, Hollywood & Vine lunch
Tuesday: IoA
Wednesday: Whatever park we want to do again
Thursday: MK
Friday: Chill out
Saturday: Fly home

I still have a few days I can tweak it. I'm actually thinking of switching Wednesday and Friday around on that second week. What are the Commandos thoughts?

Getting he ears and the like. I will keep you guys updated on how much commando stuff we do and take pictures of the new fantasy faire. If anyone has anything else they want to see let me know!

You were at WDW in January. I haven't been to a Disney property since 96. No reason to be jealous. Plus we've been saving for this trip for over a year now.
