Evenw ith the kids you should be able to make it, just keep a-moving!
Don't mind...I actually love the input...thanks. Glad to hear someone else that has done both in one night.

We thought about leaving the park for food...but the kids didn't want to. They would like to just stay there day and night...lol.
As it worked out it took about 40 minutes to eat and we left at 8:02 which got us mixed in with the front of the general guests. ST since it was MM went from 45 minute wait to 75 minutes may it was 5 longer or shorter. We were in the FP line which took 10 minutes and had a return time of 10am.

The question is really about how fast the kids can eat when characters are coming up every few minutes and the forks are set down each time.

Just keep an eye on the clock and if you don't want to buy your group picture taken on entrance to the Plaza Inn, skip that and it will save a few minutes.

Thanks so much. Will keep that in mind about the pic.

If we had left today as originally planned we would be on our way right now. BUt, as has been said...the crowds have been pretty crappy the last couple days and probably only gonna get worse.

No kidding. The line for ST was crazy that day. When we got our FP on that Tuesday morning during MM, the standby wait time was already at 75 minutes. You were right Matt that we had to wait close to 10 minutes just to get a FP for ST. Luckily, we got a good returning time then a very late time.

Well, nothing has changed this week. We will be down to 3 weeks tomorrow. Hope it hurries up. I am getting behind in my classes instead of ahead. This last week has been hectic at work(4th of July guests) and hubby is home for 4 days and doesn't like me to be on the computer the whole time. SO instead of being way ahead I am working on a week and a half ahead. Maybe after Wed I will be able to get going again.

Going to go shopping this week for our clothes for the trip. I know I bought a few things already but still need to get the luggage and I want some new clothes. Still have to get the things to make shirts(I think I am gonna do this option.) Also need to buy ponchos and soda and water.
Ok off to work. Hope everyone has a great 4th.

Your welcome. I would enjoy the most as you can during MM and don't worry about riding it since I bet the lines would be quite long during MM. If you get to the ST FP queue about 5 minutes before the park opens, you and your group will get your FPs before that crazy mob of people come over to TL and get their FPs.

I hope that everything goes well for you and your family as you get closer to your trip.

Thanks so much. I am stressing that something will happen and we won't get to go. I guess I will finally stop when we are loading up the car to leave town that night.

I bet you're super excited for you trip, it's coming up soon. I'm really hoping that by the time we go on our trip. ((In Nov)) the ST hype with die down a bit and we won't have to wait in line forever. I'm also hoping the crowds will be minimal.

Will keep on eye out for updates, and hope you'll share pictures with us later.

Well under the 3 week mark. I have been so wrapped up in homework since Monday that I can't even get on here to sneak a peak.

I am done with all but my final in MOS and have a few more quizzes and the final and essay in MEA. Hubby(taking the same classes) is done with MEA except for final and essay and has 3 more assignments in MOS and then his final project. Can't wait to be done.

We went shopping today. I bought myself an Eeyore shirt. It's cute. Still don't have all I need. Did manage to finally get luggage. Forgot to buy ponchos. Bought the girls some more Disney shirts(need to see how many they each have now).

Ok well, I am off to do some more school stuff. I sure hope to take a REAL break soon and read some TRs.
