We Have Our 1st Official Commando Club Mission

We Have Our 1st Official Commando Club Mission

A quick breifing to get a idea of anyone who would like to partake in this mission, before I give all the details

I was talking to Debbie, author of WDW Document Of Secrets, I'm sure alot of you know what I'm talking about, those who don't you will soon learn, I think it will be fun and if nothing else you might learn something

Over the past couple years the list has grown so much, it is almost impossible for 1 person to keep track of what is current, with WDW changing things all the time

This is where we come in, Debbie has alot of resorces of new info, but no one really talks about things that are not current anymore, so our job would be to let her know anything that is outdated, so it can be striked from the document, making it as current as possible

IMO this Document is better then any book, and with our way of planning, for myself I can say it has made a big differance

So any WDW Commando or Dis Dad Member who would like to help Debbie clean up the list please post, and I'll get Debbie to come to the thread to give futher info (what we are looking for, info how to get post, contact etc)

I myself will be helping Debbie anyway I can, Anything worth doing is worth doing right

I hope between the WDW Commandos and the Dis Dads we can form a hell of a Team

T-Together
E- Everybody
A- Achives
M-More

I'll let Debbie know tonite that we are off to a good start putting together members who would like to help

1st thing I recommend, even if you already have a copy of the Documents (since it's updated all the time) is get a new copy


How to request the Documents

The Best & easiest way is to send Debbie a PM
Her DisBoard name is ---- Dcanoli
Remember to include your email addy, so she can send it to you
It will come to your email addy in 2 parts
I must warn you, it might be in index card form (I don't know how my wife does it, but it can be changed to regular form), also when you go to print, make sure you have a good supply of ink & paper, it's alot of info.

csmommy - not to put you in a panic, but I think your trip next week is going to get alot more interesting

PS when you send for the Documents, let Debbie know you are a WDW Commando and would like to help cleaning up the Documents


I'm working on the best way for everyone to relay all the info dirrectly to Debbie, without making it confusing

I just got done printing out the Documents

I had my wife change the format from index cards to full page

Just to give anyone who doesn't know how large this file is

Part 1 was 28 pages
Part 2 was 23 pages

I really would like to get a copy of it from Debbie, but don't feel right about it, since our WDW trip won't be till Christmas 2014 (at least I'm hoping that's when it's going to be). This D@@##$@M DL trip the end of Sept has set me back saving for a few months, and this could mean the difference between Dec/14 and Aug/15. We'll just see how it goes. I have to have a min amount of money in my savings account by the end of 2013 in order to plan the WDW trip. Having seen DL during Halloween time over the past 2 years, has me seriously hankering for a Christmastime trip to WDW to experience it first hand. Otherwise I'd be more than willing to help out a fellow DISer. Have a great day!

I'm going with my DD (adult) who just spent a day in DL and emailed that she's looking forward to lots of pool time in WDW...hmmmmm This is SO against my nature not to be in the parks as much as possible!!! This should be interesting.....

Your DD sounds like my wife (she wants a 4hr down time) I will do it, but I hope it wears off after the 1st day or 2

I've PM'd Debbie for the document, and am eager to see what goodies it has inside. Forgot to budget for greyhound sitters for the WDW trip, as our current sitter is going to be too elderly then to deal with the hounds. Told DH since I'm the saver of the two of us, the kennel expenses are his mess. Will check into the greyhound rescue group we belong to closer to the trip to get some advice for a good dog sitter locally for our furkids. Have a great evening everyone!
