You know someone else is going to say it immediately again. Will they fall again? There would never be any autographs or meets or anything then.

I'm starting to put my touring plans together for each of the parks. Way back when we went to DL my sister and I went counter clockwise around the park just hitting the headliners like Star Tours, Space Mountain, Materhorn, Splash Mountain, BTMRR, HM, POTC, and Jungle Cruise. Then when we got through Adventure Land we'd head back hitting the lower priority rides and shows. By the time we got back to Tomorrow Land the lines were much shorter and it'd be another lap just hitting headliners. I'm thinking of doing MK and AK the same way. What are your thoughts?

I think I remember them saying something about that plane in their joke telling. Good to know.

Hmmm. I think it depends on what you want to do. The story goes that it is better to start at the back of the park and work your way frontwards, as most people start at the entrance and work their way towards the back.

In MK, we have done went thru the park I think in most all the ways - Adventureland, Tomorrowland, Fantastyland, started from CP and CRT with 8:00 ADR. I usually don't start with Frontierland land, because I like to do Splash Mountain when warmer or close to when park closes. I think we have just alternated in different years. For whatever reason, when we start in Adventureland, we somehow won't get all of Tomorrowland done. And, I don't do CoP anymore because it stinks too bad inside.

In Epcot, I ride SpaceShip Earth towards the end of the day as there usually no crowd at the end of the day. Our usual plan there is to ride Soarin immediately, Soarin FP, then the land, seas, and figment, Soarin,and then over to Test Track and Mission Space. We may jump up to for Mexico or Norway boatride, but we try to save the walk around the WS to later in the evening.

In DHS, we usually do TSM first. Although with the Star Tours, we may head there first. I really liked the new scenes last time. Then, we go around DHS based on show times. I've never figured out how to get every shows/ live events in, so we pick the ones we want and tour in that order.

In AK, I haven't figured out a good one. Kilimanjaro Safaris is essential. So, we go their first and get a FP for it.

We do it that way, although I agree with Norm about doing Splash Mountain later in the day or last since you really don't dry out completely, that can be a bit uncomfortable

There is a theory behind this, if there is a choice of Right, Left or Straight - Left is usually the less taken direction, majority of people are right handed and tend to vere right, others will keep going straight, left would be the lesser chosen path, it doesn't stay that way for long, you might have a hour tops before the crowds start to catch up

We usually head right to do Tomorrow land and then go left and come through the middle of the castle, go eat somewhere and either park hop or eat. We usually do a pre-RD breakfast at CP as well.

I plan AK and DHS around the shows and Epcot I do FP runs, starting with Soarin and just go around counter clockwise. I have not done WS rides, I just go for the food

Got some good and unusual news today, my wife told me that our friends down the street are going to WDW, and guess what they are arriving the same day we areMy son will be so surprised, their daughter is my son's best friend and they love to hang out together

They are no strangers to my touring methods we have taken many day trips together, They are all WDW 1st timers, so this is kinda of a unusual pairing a Extreme Commando & 1st timers, but they know the drill, Plan is we will tour from RD till about 12 or 1, then they said they would rest till after dinner and meet back up for the evening till closing, on days that we are going to non Disney parks they will rest up and do some touring of their own

Not sure what to expect, I'm sure I can make it a positive rememberable experience and cover all that needs to be covered, plus I work cheap (for cocktails) OK maybe not that cheap

Well, It is a small world after all.....
I would be afraid I'd get stuck with my sons BFF if that happened to us.

That would not bother me, it would make our group a even number, the only thing I'm worried about is being on time when we meet up, I'm not one to wait around, I give a small window after that we move on and then you would have to catch up to us, somewhere in the park

That will be fun. Just how good of friends are your son and their daughter? My oldest just graduated 5th grade. There were some girls and boys who are boyfriend/ girlfriend crazy. Thankfully, mine is aware of boys but not as much as the others.

They play almost everyday, I'm not too worried about the boyfriend/girlfriend thing since he will turn 8 on arrival day and she turns 6 in July, I think I have at least a couple more years before I need to worry about this
