I've heard, but one of those bands I have to see before they're all gone!! However, regaining my sanity is more important.

Have you heard that WDW is converting from paper tickets and/or key cards to wrist bands? The wrist bands will get you into the room, into the parks, and store your photopass numbers from what I understand. But shortly after they are going to implement "FastPass Plus" that will also be stored on the band. Basically instead of the standard fastpass system you would pre-schedule a few rides each day before you leave. You can't use it with the standard fast passes either, once you decide to go for one system you lose the other. But you can use your fastpass allotment for special seating at shows now too. The rumor is that eventually the regular fastpass system will go away. Anyways it's highly debated and I'm curious to see how it will shake out, but I'm nervous about trying something new right before our trip

Doing the Happy Dance!

There were too many posts to quote!

Yes, I might need a chiropractor...After Disney. I'm looking at all things Disney lately (Laptop, Kindle, iPhone, Desktop). Plans made months ago and now at the 11th hour, I think of a million and one things after reading these posts.. Breathe!

1st trip to Disney in over 15 years. Celebrating DD 5th birthday. Checking weather daily. Checking crowd levels daily. Checking menus to see if any changes. Practicing breathing techniques...Emails starting to cause mild panic attacks. Just kidding... A little.. Dreading another closer or refurishment. Sad about Mad Tea Cups and Disney Junior Live, not sure about Festival of the Lion King (closing) due to new Avatarland... Then friends decide to come to celebrate birthday. TA informs us all value & moderate resorts are booked 2/4-2/9. I know various cheer events going on over the course of several weekends in February, crowd levels haven't changed, 3-5. So what's going on?

23D until I'm at the happiest place on earth. Breathe...Do not want to be like Clark Griswald in National Lampoons Vacation...

Is my ticker broken? Why not 3 days.

Gosh! (said in best Mickey voice) Take a few days to recoop and everyone explodes with Disney excitement! Not that I'm complaining

That sounds like an A+ way to entertain yourself while sick. My dad's finally "in the right mindset" for Disney (where did I go wrong with him ) so I spent most of my couch time answering questions for him.

We've never ordered before but someone suggested Gardengrocer.com. It looks pretty reasonable when compared to a $30+ trip to Walmart and back.

Mini Sunmaid Raisin boxes!! One: I love raisins; two: they're great to share and fit well into a carrying bag; three: they keep me hydrated enough while walking around the parks. They're usually pretty easy to find in a 15-ish-count package at the local market. My mom plans on packing her own 'trail mix' blend, too.

YEARS ago, but it's one of our favorite weeks to be there. The weather is just warmer enough from the cold PA air and we get back in time that it starts warming up around here. Plus it's my folks' birthdays. There were a few crowds but never anything unmanageable.

This Northwest PA-er feels the same way as Northeast about the weather. Except I do love snow. I just also like to escape it for a week.

Welcome aboard, Mr. Toad! We'll be overlapping but staying in the new Cars Suites. I hope you get the R&R you're looking for.
