I got my Disney mail from AAA via Fedex. Luckily the kids didn't see me grab it! I just "packed" a bunch of stuff and put it out of view. DH thinks I'll crack and tell them about the trip but there is $100 on the line. Whoever holds out the longest gets it - and when we are talking money to spend at Disney, I can keep that secret

My Disney diet starts two weeks prior to the trip. Each time we go to Disney, I make sure not to eat any sweets two weeks prior to going. I eat fairly well as it is but I do run 5 to 6 miles a day so I allow myself one small dessert (like a scoop of ice cream or a cookie) per day. But I've found if I cut out the sweets (and I can only maintain that for two weeks), I crave a lot less when I'm at Disney. I'd love to eat an entire cinnamon roll but I'm happy to share it with the family and enjoy the bites I do get. Oh, but Dole Whips are ALL MINE and NOT TO SHARE. Everyone must get their own

Of course, as many of you know on this thread, I save my calories for poolside libations I need to go buy a spork...

We (me and DW Tracey) will be there starting the 24th! We're taking the Amtrak AutoTrain down the afternoon of 23 October, and will be staying until 29 October when we board the Disney Magic for a 7-night Western Caribbean cruise.

Maybe we'll see you at the Poly.

We are in Tahiti 1029 close to door on beach but no traffic it is a quiet spot close to TTC and not too far from GCH. We had a GV room and we only requested ground floor near transportation.

The view of the castle from our room is great!! Ready to watch the fireworks in a few minutes.

My feet are killing me from three days of non-stop walking!

My sister gave me a great tip. Bring Starbucks VIA. You can add them to the cup and just run the coffee pot with water.

Checking in live from the Hawaii longhouse! We were greeted as soon as we stepped off the ME bus by a CM who walked with us to bell services to drop off our carry on stuff and then walked us to Hawaii. Check in was super easy and we had a delightful CM. Even little Lily got a lei! My parents are really enjoying themselves and are amazed with the resort and everyone they have encountered. Think I have them hooked!

We just left WDW as of Sunday afternoon. Stayed in the Hawaii longhouse from the 9th-18th. Had a few bumps in the road, but the resort was beautiful and some of the cast members were excellent. Especially, Jake in the lounge. Fantastic CM - always a smile on his face and always wanted to help. Stayed in room 3519 and had some very creative mousekeepers this trip. Loved the hanging monkey and turtle towel animals.
