I've been the week leading up to easter and the week following easter. and really its not that bad! As long as you head to the park for opening you are all set! Leave after an early lunch and rest back at the hotel. We usually would hit the counter service places around 11:15 and eat before the crowds came rolling in. We used easywdw and avoided the parks that are NOT recommended and had a great time riding and seeing everything while enjoying BEAUTIFUL weather!

noooooooo! I don't want to be that sick or have my kids/husband go through it! I teach dance and I am constantly wiping the barres off with Lysol wipes YUCK! I had one of my 3 year old students in ICU for the week of christmas. I just want to stay healthy and have April come NOW!

so back to my ticket problem, would it be better to keep the hopper option and just pay the difference for 1 day at BB? I am confused by the person that said it was cheaper, 30.00?? for the 5 of them to do it that way? is that per person or for all 5? Or just drop hopping and WPM, and just pay the 55 per person for the day at BB?? I didn't want to be paying for options that we are only on intending on using 1x. We really could take or leave the hoppers.... it could save us money to drop it

DH's boss went to Mexico during Christmas break, and they all started coming down with the flu the day before their vacation. They went ahead and left for Mexico, but ended up coming home 4 days early b/c they were all so miserable, and the trip was a total bust. That was what convinced me that we are going to add the trip insurance this time! The kids and I have had flu shots, so I'm not terribly worried about that, but there are so many bugs out there... it would be a real bummer if it happened on our vacation but at least with the trip insurance we could try again in a few months.

The reservation I cancelled was for Kona Cafe, but I was second guessing it. There isn't much on the menu my mom would eat, and I feel a buffet is more suited to her tastes and probably a better use of a dining credit. I booked 1900 Park Fare (for a 10 am breakfast so we can sleep in), because it's a extensive looking buffet with characters we both really like and may not otherwise see. What do you guys think? Anyone have any experience with 1900 Park Fare? Is 10 am too late or okay?
We love that breakfast, and we book all of our breakfast ADR's for around 10:00, its perfect because the crowds are dying off by then. Its DD's favorite, and the food is pretty good too.

OMG, every year I GO germ crazy starting 2 weeks before. I am always germ crazy, and have passed my phobia on to my kids, but dont let anyone come over to our house and go overly germ crazy right before. This year Easter is 2 weeks before we leave so I already started stressing about my "always sick" niece and Nephew getting us sick. I thought I was the only one that worries about it....

You girls aren't the only one. I freak out about that stuff too.. In 2008 myself, dh and ds all got the stomach bug on the way home.. I started feeling sick on UHF plane ( horrible feeling) my little guy threw up as soon as we landed and dh got sick once we were home.. Last 2 times, I brought about 5 packages of wipes. Every time we got off a ride I wiped our hands and if we sat somewhere for a long time I wiped down the area too.. Yes, I have passed on my obsession to my kid too..

My mom rarely gets sick so I don't worry about her getting sick before the trip, but I do get sick more frequently so it's something I worry about. I tend to get sick right before my exams, which are about 2 weeks before my trip this time, so I'm hoping that'll be it and then I'll be nice and healthy for the trip!

I agree with all of this! If you are willing to get up early spring break is not as bad as some people seem to think. If you get to the parks at noon, well... then I guess you are asking for long waits!

We don't really use the touring websites though. I know my dad looks at them sometimes but we don't let the predictions dictate what we're going to do.

I came down with the flu on my last disney trip and was INCREDIBLY sick the first four days of the trip. Disney has a darn good assortment of medicines for that sort of thing lol. I started puking just 2 hours after arriving on Disney property.... great timing, eh?

Double digits, double digits!!

I am sitting here with a sick DH next to me with the flu...who knows if/when the rest of us will get it! But, I do keep thinking at least we are getting this out of the way before our trip! Trying to stay positive! I have also been thinking a couple of weeks before we leave no gym daycare for the kiddos! But then how am I going to get those last couple of pounds off?? I hope everyone stays healthy for their trip!
