Ooh, there's an idea; I bet they'd get a kick out of that one. And I'd love to take a peek at Wilderness Lodge.

Wrong again! Me, I mean. Technically, my vacation does start 180 from today, but my first day will be spent driving to the airport. lol! We're so far away that it takes 8 hours just to drive to the city. So tomorrow I'll be on here before work.

I guess that would be a dry run, I know you'll be ready tomorrow

Then I shall continue to lurk. I believe people with young families who only get to go to Disney once or infrequently need to be a bit commando. We are happily in a place now where we are DVC and kids are grown and we can just stroll around the World......but (and please don't tell the Desperadoes) ---I still have my WDW list of things to pack.

Woo hoo! That was too easy! I ended up with everything we wanted, except Ohana, because it's 11 days after, so I'll book it tomorrow. I cancelled Tony's and booked a breakfast at the castle. I know we're doing Akershus too, but we really want to eat at the castle. So I'll pay OOP for one of the cheaper meals.

Also booked the Fantasmic! package. Just need to figure out how to get the Wishes dessert buffet, and we're set!

That's Great Early bird catches the worm

For Wishes Dessert you have to call to book, have a CC handy

Now you get to plan your day's around your ADR's

I have now eaten one of every meal at the castle and I love eating there. For me, it is the most awesome meal.

Love doing this. New to this thread but commando in spirit. 1st trip 4 years ago and 2nd trip last week. Hope to go every other year from now on as new DVC members. 4 kids and even though I've been pretty commando so far planning on getting better (worse?) as the kids get older and can handle longer/earlier days. Also count me among those who feel flexibility in a commando is huge. I feel like I have to know EVERYTHING available in each park and the best way to do everything so that I can have any given day planned but then adapt to what the group wants to do as circumstances allow. We tend to start the day with a hard plan for the morning but then go with the flow as things move along. Next trip will hopefully be for Dec 2012 and I'm already saving notes in my phone for things to do next time.
