ESTA done and approved, with 6 more sleeps!

I'm going to surprise DS6 with a new DS game for the flight, not going to I've it to him until we're in the plane.

I think I'll be utilizing the inflight entertainment system, as DH has already claimed the laptop to watch movies and DS will likely use the iPad when he's not using the DS.

I'm off to work today, last working week before we go

I have a new dilemma

I'm trying to decide if we should hire a car to get back from the port after the cruise (we're wanting to go to Kennedy Space centre that same day also) and hold the car for our stay at WDW.
We're staying at Coronado Springs, so could rely on WDW transport, but i'm just not sure how reliable the transport really is.

So hire a car, or use the transport available?

We may want to go offsite at times for shopping or other things, what other transport is available to do this if we don't hire a car?

If you have the funds, then keep the car. Having a car is always handy to get around. It will be particularly handy if you want to run to another resort or to DTD just for a look see. An if you want to head out off property, then it will be worth having.

The bus transport at CSR is reasonable. From what I remember, it doesn't share with any other resort.

Thanks for your thoughts, I thought of it today at work and figure it's a small price to pay for the convenience of our own transport.
After bringing it up to my DH I think he also thinks it's a good idea.
I'm just not sure how often you actually have to leave the bubble of WDW

Look at it as an incentive to head back to the resort in the early afternoon. You can then plan a trip to any one of the outlets or head to the Florida Mall. There used to be a M&M shop at the Florida Mall (not sure if it is still there) if you need to entice your kids there.

Sure....I'll go with a 4 or 5 day countdown to this question.








The answer.....


But have a great time at 'home'.
