you would think ziploc would come out with an ad campaign showing 1001 uses for a baggie. we use them for any and everything in our house. in fact, we keep the heavy duty gallon size ones in the glove box as a porta-pottie for our boys. it's saved us from disaster on more than one occasion.

You certainly can't blame Disney for that and even those were few and only at MK, where it seems people are the rudest anyway. Hey, there's an idea for a thread... why are people so rude at MK and not at other parks?! But I digress...

Maybe my expectations aren't as high as some people's, but I've been to Disney many many times in my lifetime and I just don't see the magic going downhill.

Hi jmm476!

Glad you had a great vacation! That's always good to hear. We stayed at WL and didn't like the room so we moved to YC. We had a fantastic time, the YC is awesome.

Anyway, where did you stay, if you don't mind me asking? Yes, I can agree with you that some guests can be rude.

No.

BLT, Kandani, Space Mountain Refurb, HH Refurb, PC Refurb, TSM, AIE, EE, Nemo Musical, Nemo Ride, Kim Possible, Sum of all Thrills, Via Napoli, FLE.

We just invested $50k in DVC (490 points at BLT and BCV) over the past two years and LOVE it!
You say no, but your avatar betrays you.The fix me for the yeti on expedition everest has been quite a hot button topic on these boards and quite frankly I believe would fit well in this thread.It is another example of something disney has let go and should be repairing in a little more timely fashion!

I agree totally. All my liquids travel in ziplock bags so there are not unauthorized leaks. I even carry EXTRA ziplocks as needed plus especially large ones to carry home icky laundry or wet swimsuits for example.

How on earth did Christopher Columbus cross the Atlantic without ziplock bags and duct tape????

I agree.

Don't forget Disneyland's new (2009) Fantasmic Dragon. Head fell off during dress rehearsal and was out for ALL of the summer - even though the new Fantasmic dragon was the cornerstone of the summer's advertising.

That would be an ...... OOPS.


(and I agree about Betty the Yeti. I'm getting a little tired of Disco Yeti).

Hey Brunette:

The "snack" size bag is perfect for paper money. You can find them most places....Giant supermarkets, Wallyworld, Kmart.....even on the shelf in the Dollar Store.

You can also get a variety of even smaller sizes at Michaels. I take a small cocktail of meds + vitamins. They have teeny little zip locks which fit my daily pills perfectly. I fill up enough to 1 1/2 times the days I'm gone.....then put them all in snack size bag.

The teenzy ziplock bag assortment in Michaels in on the same wall with all the glues and glue sticks (don't know why).

Enjoy,
ZLP

We pack our clothes in ziploc bags-1 outfit/day then I punch little holes in them and repack with dirty laundry for the way home.

So, if I went with my DH and inlaws, would it be cheaper than, say just the two of us going? Sorry bout all the questions! LOL!

Brunette
I worked our vacay out and the 40% off room was WAY cheaper than the dining plan for two people for us...

Has the Yeti worked for more than an hour or two since they opened EE?
