Great idea

Can't believe we are 3 weeks away Now if I can only find the time to pack without the kids figuring out that we are going on vacation

Its been a while so I will repost here (not to mention that I am bored while I recover from the flu).

Fish Extender list is below. No change since last post.

I have changed the primary sort of this list from stateroom number to section (forward/midship/aft) then stateroom number. I have done this as the length of the fantasy is so long, it makes sense to deliver by section than by deck. This comes from experience as I think it took me as long to deliver 25 FE gifts on the Dream as it took me to deliver 125 FE gifts on the Magic. The distance between midship and aft is crazy long.

I will have a dry erase board and extra copies of the FE list (room 6566) - if you change staterooms or take an upgrade, please write it on my board.


Latest FE list (please let me know if I have any of the information wrong):

I should be arriving at Boardwalk Villas at about 8pm the nite before the cruise. I was planning to just run over to Epcot to get on the new Test Track. Maybe we need to run over to MK... check out the pink castle then head over to Epcot (we are doing MK on the day we get off the ship).

MK closes at 10PM
Epcot 11PM

Decisions... Decisions...

Test Track was refurbed for several months. The track layout is the same, but the the queue, theme and lighting are all different. Has more of a Tron/Neon feel to it... more futuristic

Pink Castle came from this link that jandj524 posted:

Now, I'm wondering what other things I don't know about

I Know the following:

- Splash Mont. is being refub
- New Fantasy Land - Need to see The Beast Castle (planning on lunch at Be our Guest and Yummy cinn. Buns at Gaston's)
- Might stop in at the Walt Disney World Pro Soccer Classic at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex (DH and DD are big soccer fans)
- Kali rapids might open back up that week (but might be too cold anyways)
- I'm in tears that the Main Street Bakery is Closed and that the BoardWalk Bakery is going through rehabs (WHY AT THE SAME TIME WHY? WHY?)

- Heads up (but you most already know) Luna Pool will be closed. A shuttle can take you over to Stormalong Bay

But what else is going on????

Thank you Sil for arranging the FE list - that is very helpful!

We'll be in HS on 2/14 and MK on 2/15. I also need to figure out how to pack without DS knowing and asking questions.

I would say either when he is in school (if your not working then) or late late at night after he is down and out for the night. GOOD LUCK and Happy Packing!!

We were in WDW in December and were able to eat lunch at Be Our Guest and ride the 'new' Test Track. We really liked them both

For BOG you do have to line up outside (took about 20/25 minutes when we joined the line at 11:45). The dining rooms are beautiful! Definitely use Fast Pass for the new Ariel ride (the lines were extremely long, and we didn't think the ride is worth an hour plus wait). My kids really liked 'designing' their car for Test Track.

Happy planning!!

Be Our Guest opens for lunch quick service at 10:30, so if you really want to get inside quickly you can arrive by 10:20 and get in.

I agree the Little Mermaid attraction isn't worth a long wait. We rode it multiple times at California Adventure (it's the same ride) but it was a walk-on every time. It's a nice attraction, but I'm not waiting more than 10 minutes for it. (The DCA version doesn't have FastPass.)
