We went to DL in Oct and rode the LM ride and honestly I wasn't impressed. If the line is short enough we'll ride it, but I'm not going to make it priority.
Our DD is an Ariel nut so we have to make sure to meet her again in her Grotto and do the ride at least once. I guess the best way is to head there after one of our mornings at RD.

I just thought is was odd that Disney is now making us upgrade to My Disney Experience and talks about Fast Pass+ for our upcoming trip.

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

Have you made it WDW yet? I can't believe your ME bus broke down. That can only mean the trip has to get better from that point on.

That's what I was thinking as well. Hopefully that is the only bad spot in your trip.

weather.com is not looking so good anymore for those dates! We arrive on the 5th and that day should be good, but I'm seeing rain the following 3 days. Urgh. I am trying not to be too sad though. Even if it rains I am sure we will find a way to have a good time, and Florida weather is crazy - by the time we go the forecast might end up being sunny....fingers crossed!!!!!

I knew your name looked familiar...I remember chatting with you about weather worries in Philly before a trip 2 years ago around this time! That was one hell of a flight for us- we got stuck with engine troubles and de-icing for 3 hours in Philly before being one of the last flights to leave before they closed the airport. Gotta love those surprise snowstorms! At least you don't have to deal with that this time. HAve a great trip!

Just out of curiosity, did they do anything to 'make up' for your troubles?

No they did not, I did hear others suggesting that they get somethingwe started at AK and then over to DHS made the 8pm fantastic with great seats, the left overs for the dining plan. Snacks, Osborn lights and back to resort to unpack and cocktails. Buses have been great so far..

Have you looked at accuweather? Rain wasn't in their forecast until the end of next week but with warmer weather. Now I am going to have to check out weather again today. HEre's hoping we all leave PA on time this weekend and have warm rainless weather in FL.

Just took a look at the weather and it does call for some rain. Coming from SF Bay Area, I'm used to the rain and not much else as far as winter goes, though it has been pretty cold lately (well, cold for us).

We're driving from Illinois and will be staying the week of the 6th. Glad to see I'm not the only one stalking the weather channel. Luckily we're driving, so we can pack clothes for all weather just in case. Art of Animation here we come!!!!!

Just bought a few pairs of legging style capris for next week's trip. Thinking shorts would be too chilly? Still can't decide on tops. I think it's easier to go in June. LOLOLOL
