So glad to hear your ankle isn't broken. I hope it is healed up soon.

I think the 4-parks-in-a-day tradition sounds like fun! The most we've ever managed is two!

As far as a different ADR than Cape May ... what is available for that night?

California Grill is available, but not until 9:30 at night. Flying Fish Cafe is available. I'm thinking about doing that one. Just because

The four parks in one day is fun, but it can be exhausting. LOL!

Wow. I guess we'd better make an effort to get to that as well. If it's even still there when we go!

Glad to hear the flying fear is fading. Also glad to hear you didn't break any bones in your ankle!

Can't imagine doing four parks in one day. Do you hit your favorite rides, or are there specific rides that are part of the tradition, or how does that work, exactly?

I like replacing Cape May with Flying Fish. Similar theme (well, in the vaguest sense of theme ) and location, yet totally different experience. Have you been to the Flying Fish before?

We hit our favorite rides in each of the parks.

In MK we hit the mountains. This time we want to add Splash Mountain to the list. We've never done it before so it's a must do this trip.

Epcot, we do Spaceship Earth, Living With the Land, Soarin, and DH & DS do Mission Space.

AK- The Safari Ride and Expedition Everest.

MGM- Rock N Roller coaster, Star tours and The Great Movie Ride.

We have never been to the Flying Fish before. this is going to be a trip of a lot of firsts for us. Lots of first places to eat and lots of rides to ride. Have you ever eaten there? It sounds good and the atmosphere looks great..

Ouch! Sorry about your ankle, I hope it is feeling better already. I'm known for not watching where I'm going and I can't count how many times I've run into this one short cubicle wall in my office.... it's a joke now that anyone who sees me blurts out "work comp!"

FF sounds like a wonderful place to dine - especially if you are trying some firsts this visit. I hear such great reviews for that place. Probably a smart move to not risk Cape May - even if it would make for an interesting dining review if you had to make a quick trip to the ER we don't want to see that happen!!

I've thought about having a totally commando day where we do 4 parks in 1 day but no one from my family is up for that! Hmph! Apparently sleeping in is valued above getting an early start at the parks.

I am far from caught up, but just wanted to say sorry about your ankle. I swear, one of these days I am going to trip over one of my cats and have a serious fall. I get the whole tripping over a dog bone.

It's unfortunate that when doctors offices have bad receptionists, it colors the whole practice. I find that reason enough to switch.

What? you started packing! I feel like I so behind I am still working on my binder.
It sounds like you needed a new doctor.

So glad buddy seems to be getting better. I hate when my fur babies are sick the fact they canít talk makes it so much worst.

We love the FOTLK but arenít big fans of the Nemo show. I am not too exited about Avatar land I wish they would be doing something different.

It sounds like you are all ready to fly now! How sweet of DH take you there so you can check it out. I step on my dogs bones all the time. I am convince I have to teach them to put them back on the toy basket once they are done. I am glad you ankle is not broken.

Thank you for the well wishes on my ankle. I've been taking easy and it's feeling better already. LOL!!

Yeah, FOTLK is going away. At least according to everything that I've read here. That's why I have to make it to see the show at least once. LOL!!

FOTLK is one of our must do's on this trip. I can't wait!!

Thanks for the well wishes on my ankle. It's feeling much better now.

I've always been a klutz. LOL! Either twisting my ankle or running into things. I can't tell you how many times I have run into walls. LOL! It's pretty embarrassing!

Yeah, it would make for a good dining report, but not a good trip. LOL!!

Yeah, I've read a lot of good things about FF.

My DS and DH are commandos to. Although my son is a bit less so since he's gotten older, but he still knows that when we are at Disney it's commando all the way. LOL!!

Thanks for the wishes on my ankle. I have tripped over a lot of my dogs stuff. I gave myself a blood blister on my big toe once because I kicked his knuckle bone. Talk about hurting. I saw starts for a bit. LOL!!

It does color the whole practice. It makes me wonder if she knows what's going on.

I started packing basics. Like my gift cards and my shirts that I had done. I still have a LOT left to pack.

Buddy is definitely getting better. He is walking much better. i know that he will be glad when he is able to finally stop having to be muzzled.

Yeah, I feel much better about the flying now. LOL!!

I wish I could teach Buddy to put his stuff back. It would be a small miracle. LOL!!

I'm rather annoyed tonight.

Why? I shall tell you why. Well, I'm worried about our early morning ADR's. I have a few scheduled for breakfast. Well, I'm worried about the buses running to the parks. I have some of my ADR's for 8:05 in the morning. Now, I've read that the Disney buses start running an hour before park opening. So, if the park opens at 9, then the buses will start running at 8. That's definitely not going to work with my ADR's.

I don't want to get charged no show fees. I emailed my TA and am waiting to hear back from her. I'm in my panic mode.

We decided against renting a car and are going to be using Disney transportation only. So this is why I'm panicked.

I'm sure that others are in the same boat, but I'm just freaking out.

DH is getting annoyed with me. I'm getting annoyed with myself.

Still waiting to hear back from my TA on the cake. I think I should have done it myself.

I think it's that time of the month for me. Because everything that everyone does is just annoying me tonight. I think I'm just going to go to bed and maybe I'll have answers in the morning.....

Have you heard back from the TA yet?

I've never done early A.M. ADRs, but from what I gather you are right - the buses start running 1 hour prior to park opening. Any way you could maybe get some later times?

Sounds like you need a couple of these Hang in there, friend!

I did hear back from her this morning. Well, actually late last night.

This was what she told me. I copied it from the email that she sent me.

Great question! You will need to touch base with your resort concierge upon check in to see how your resort handles this. Sometimes they have a bus come for you and sometimes they personally drive you. Do not worry though they will make sure you get there. We do 8AM reservations all of the time and we always have been able to take the bus. :-)

So maybe it won't be so bad. We are an early morning rope drop kind of family, so we like to do early morning ADR's.

Thanks for the hugs. I know that everything will be fine, but I need to not stress over everything. I know that tons of people have early ADR's and they use Disney transportation and they get there fine.

Plus reading other posts here I've seen that others have been fine.

No news on the cake yet. I'm getting worried and wondering if I shouldn't try and contact them myself. She has been trying to call to see how it's going, but she said that the phone has just been ringing and ringing and no one is picking up.....
