i could give you a good deal on fixtures but the shipping would be a bit expensive. stick with amercan standard and delta!!! toto makes a good toilet also. the only non power assist toilet aproved by the state of new jersey!! and if its good enough for the state of new jersey, its good enough for the rest of the country!!!

Wow, another 7 pages. At this rate, Version 5 will be shut down in 36 days. You all need a weekend to keep you busy and stay off the Dis. Or, I need a better job. Anyone hiring?

For those of us that fly to WDW, what is your favorite method of getting tickets? Do you use sites like Expeida or Orbitz?
We have 3 carriers (AirTran, SouthWest and Midwest/soon to be merged with Frontier) that fly direct from Milwaukee to Orlando. I'm on the email lists for AirTran and Midwest, so every once in a while I'll get notified of sales. SouthWest just started flying into Milwaukee, so I haven't had a chance to fly with them yet.

I check all three websites directly and book directly through their site. The prices always seem to be just a bit lower there than the online travel sites. Plus I'm eliminating the middle man, so there can't be any finger-pointing if something goes wrong.

So how about guys - what's your preferred method?

can you guys get skyscanner....i used to sell holidays and this was always a good way to get the best priced seats

Well as a matter of fact, looking at my itinerary (detailed and color coded by park and meal type of course) DD and I have left the afternoon and evening of the 11th open to spend at the Dig Site. We're gonna try to do rope drop at DHS and stay till lunch at the Sci-Fi (our favorite!) after that we thought we'd just lounge. We'll have GAD passes so should be able to get done early. Before or after dinner would work out great. I'm looking forward to a few frosty beverages poolside or If I can come up with a minimum order from Garden Grocer maybe more than a couple I am very excited about our first stay at a moderate, I may even have to hit the hot tub no matter the weather.

Let me know how to find you.

We have used undercover tourist more than once and never had any trouble. We use the special link that is in the mousesavers.com monthly newsletter. That link gives you a little better pricing than just going through the link on the mousesavers page or directly to undercover tourist!

At this rate, I'll be posting every 10 pages. Slow down guys!

On a serious note, how do you guys book your vacations to The World? I ask because for our Disneymoon we used a local travel agent, but for our last two trips, we've booked through Disney's site. Anybody have experience with Mouse Fan Travel? Or any other reputable Disney travel agent? I have a feeling we could save a lot of money booking through an agent than booking straight through Disney. But the comfort of knowing Disney did the booking kind of puts me at ease.

Is it wrong that as soon as I read this the following went through my head:

Rollin' in my 5.0
With my rag-top down so my hair can blow
The girlies on standby waving just to say hi
Did you stop no I just drove by
Kept on pursuing to the next stop
I busted a left and I'm heading to the next block
The block was dead
Yo so I continued to A1A Beachfront Avenue

Yes you should. To make amends you must now go and listen to at least 3 AC/DC and 2 Metallica songs. As for me I'm now going to go and beat myself in the head with a ball-peen hammer until I've erased the horrible visions of Vanilla Ice videos playing through my head.
