I'm a little late to the party... but joining in!

DH and I have taken our two DDs to WDW twice... both times have been in October. It's a great time to go! The weather isn't overbearingly hot and the crowds are manageable.

We did MNSSHP on our first trip and had a blast! The Boo to You! parade is fantastic and it's so fun seeing all the characters dressed up in costumes.

Love the shirts. I've been keeping an eye out for shirts for all of us too. Looks like you got some great finds!

Welcome!! I have been on one day trips twice in October and it's perfect. I love the cooler nights too. And I absolutely can not wait until MNSSHP!!

Thanks Kari, I only need to find two more shirts for my youngest daughter and three more for my son and the kids will be set for every day we are there

Glad to hear that you were able to still get everything you wanted with your ADRs even with the MNSSHP change
I was up early at my 180 day mark as well, and have now changed most of my ADRs!

I'm hoping this is a sign that Disney won't be very crowded while we are there

Disney Shoes!

I'm not sure if you guys are familiar with zulily.com, but they offer deals on lots of great kids items. A few weeks ago, I ordered some crocs for the kids for only 12.99! This is the cheapest I have seen them so far. I got them in the mail today and I LOVE them! And as an added bonus, the kids do too!! Here's a pic of the ones I got for the girls.

Thanks! We tested them out at the zoo and Ava got blisters, but I'm hoping if she continues to wear them then her feet will be used to them by October.

The Great ADR debate!

I knew I wouldn't be able to keep my ADRs the way I had them, so I changed them....and now I'm changing them some more

The day of our MNSSHP, I have an ADR for breakfast at Ohana with Lilo & Stitch. I was really looking forward to this meal, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized we should probably sleep in this day because of the late party that night. So I went ahead and made another ADR for lunch at Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge. Now I have two ADRs and can't decide which one to cancel.

So my question is, what are your experiences at these restaurants? Likes, dislikes? I've never been to either, so I'm sure we will have fun at either one, but I would like some more input.

Have never dined at 'Ohana, so I can't give any feedback on that one...

But we've had dinner at WCC and loved it! The Canyon Skillet is really good... every part of it was delicious. And the atmosphere was a lot of fun!

If I were giving my opinion, I'd say your idea of sleeping in and having your ADR for lunch instead of breakfast sounds best.

O'hana is our FAVORITE breakfast/character meal - haven't been to the other. We really enjoyed the service, food, atmosphere, etc. Will definitely go back!

I don't know anything about WCC, but we LOVED Ohana!! It was our favorite character meal and favorite breakfast!!! What time is your ADR for? Could you get a one a little later? (if any are left).

We've been changing up our ADRs as well. I'm going to have to update my PTR with all the changes we've made.
I've never dined at either 'Ohana or WCC, but we have an ADR for 'Ohana for supper this coming trip. I've heard great things about WCC too. I would agree with sleeping in on MNSSHP day, we are planning to do that ourselves on our day for the party.

After much debate, we have decided on a late breakfast at Ohana

Only 41 more days until we leave and I must confess that I started packing this week. I've been throwing things in my "Disney" bag for months now, but the weather turned cold in the midwest this week, so I got all of our warm weather clothes and started packing them!!

We have also been super busy! I counted the days that we have left with nothing to do (other than work) between now and vacation and there were 5. So if I don't start now, I may not get packed in time!

Do you guys have any packing tips for me?
