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.
You are member #148 Your next trip in Dec 2012 will be filled with NEW adventures, most of the things they are working on now will be done by then

I leave in 23 days!!

Anyway, anyone have anything they'd like me to find an answer to?

Anyone with kiddos that would like a post card? I saw this on another thread and thought it was a cute idea. I think my sister who has better handwriting can probably copy Mickey's name easily. If you want me to send one, just sent me your address via PM.

Changed it up again. lol! I'm trying to make it a bit more logical. Managed to cut out a tiny bit of travel time on the 28th. Good thing I've got 6 more months to tweak it!

Sept. 27th - arrive around 1 or 2, swim, then head to DTD to shop. Supper at WPE. Early to bed because we have a 'butt-crack of dawn' early flight that morning.

Sept. 28th - DHS - early lunch at Starring Rolls
-dinner at Toy Story Pizza Planet

29th - EMH at MK - eat quick at the hotel before we go, no time to waste!
- grab lunch at Casey's, again no time to waste.
Back to the hotel to rest/swim. We'll see if this works, and if DS will actually sleep. Today will decide how rest time will go the rest of the week.
-back to MK for the Wishes dessert party.

30th - Eat then head to MK for the morning.
- lunch at Crystal Palace
- head to hotel for rest/swim
-quick bite to eat somewhere, then stay for Halloween party if it's on this night. Last as long as possible. lol!

1st - DHS EMH
- lunch at Sci-Fi Dine-In
- rest/swim after the parade
-head to MK for dinner at Columbia House (or another CS place) and catch the electrical parade.

2nd - AK -early day starting with breakfast at Tusker House
-lunch at the Yak and Yeti counter service place
-we'll stay until closing, as it's early.
-head to DHS for dinner at Mama Melrose and catch Fantasmic!

3rd - Epcot - breakfast at Akershus
- lunch at Chefs de France (DS loves Ratatouille, so I will try my best to catch Remy)
- rest/swim
- maybe head to MK for EMH

4th - Epcot - morning snacks from Boulangerie Patisserie
- cancelled Le Cellier, we'll do CS and snacks. I'll try it when I go without the kids one day.
- rest of the day will be rides, sight seeing, and snacking around the world....

5th - Breakfast at 1900 Park Fare...love me some Mary Poppins!
-Animal Kingdom day.
-evening shopping at DTD.

6th - EMH at MK! Right now I have breakie at the castle, but because of EMH, I might try to switch it to Tuesday so we can get into the park early.
- early rest time
- early supper at 1900 Park Fare with Cinderella! then either the halloween party again, or early to bed. we'll see how it plays out.

7th - breakfast at Ohana. We'll decide during the week what our 2 favorite parks were, then do both of them this day and eat CS and snacks all day, lasting as long as we possibly can! I'm thinking we'll most likely end up at MK for the later part of the day; if there's a party and we're not too tired I might splurge again Just cuz I can.

8th - breakfast at the hotel, swim if it's nice enough, then head back and get picked up to fly home

Yah, I looked up one or two of those threads. lol! I think I've got it where even if we don't get in until 5-15 minutes after our ADR time, we should still be able to see him. Crossing my fingers.

The dining reservation site is screwing me up tonight. Not sure if it is my horrible computer, or the site itself. i cancelled Le Cellier and changed the day for CRT, but after that, nothing will work. I have a reservation for Wolfgang Puck Cafe, I just got the email, but it's not showing up on my reservations list. I'll try it tomorrow.

Have you considered a haircut for your DS at Harmony Barbershop, 12noon is the best appointment (hint,hint)


At the 1900 Park Fare Breakfast my fav is The Madhatter, he can even cross his eyes The Strawberry Soup is a must to try

Going to have to think about this one

I could put together a mini challenge (5 things, characters & places in the parks that are mostly overlooked). If nothing elseyou would have some great pics that others would be like where or who was that

Saw the name of the thread and had no idea what it was about. Made me scratch my head to tell you the truth. So what do I do to fit in best around here? Going again in November with the family and my kids believe they are never to old. My wife decided she is going to sit at the Resort but more fun for the rest of us (she is a bit of a party pooper).

Well hello all.

I really wish I could check out the Star Wars weekends; maybe next time. My kids aren't big Star Wars fans anyway
