Not sure about swimming. I haven't taken a dip at a pool at WDW in years (I do like to swim but have never found time to do it).

As for wait times, they weren't bad at the attractions we didn't get Fastpasses for (30 minutes at the MOST).

We only used Fastpasses for Buzz, Peter Pan, Big Thunder Moutain (mom, aunt, and brother only because I'm "ride it once every one or two years" kind of person), Space Moutain (again, mom, aunt, and brother only), Test Track, Soarin', Toy Story Mania, and Tower of Terror (mom, aunt, and brother only becuase I've ridden it twice and am just not a fan).

I actually think I waited longer in the lines to meet drivers at Daytona Fan Fest on Thursday (especially in Tony Stewart's line becuase he was running on "Tony Time" and was late).

Arrived yesterday and went to MK at around 5:00. Walked on teacups, new little mermaid, buzz (x2), HM. Met Merida (30 mins maybe). Also did CoP (DD LOVES that song), Laugh Factory, IASW, tomorrow land speedway (10 minutes..maybe less!). Dinner at Cosmic Rays (family favorite/tradition).

Didn't think that was all bad in 5 hours. Especially on a Marathon night! Left at 10.

Going swimming today and HS later.

Can anyone tell me if they received a bounceback offer while you were there this month? DH and I will be arriving next week for our January trip, but my mom and sister and I are thinking about doing a girls trip later this year. Just wondering if and what our bounceback may be.

TIA!

4 days and wake up!!!

So ready for warm weather but I'm sad because it will be over before I know it and I don't know when I'll get to go back, hopefully if this solo trip goes good I may say and go next year and stay longer but happy I'm getting to go

Dh and I were talking about that just last night. I envision all 4 of us crashing on our bed and watching tv until 3 am.

I have started to gather stuff, but have not packed yet. Might start tonight.

Where are you staying? We are at AKV.
