Anybody explored options for getting back to LAX after post night stays yet? I know last time we did this we did a town car. What are the best options? Don't want to have to get to LAX 3 hrs early like magical express makes you do at WDW so it may be a town car again.

This made me realize that I have a "technical" chat question. Is there some sort of app that will let you log in to chat from an ipad or iphone?

You can get a "flat rate" taxi voucher from GC's guest services counter. Last year it was $80 (plus tip) to LAX. For those flying out of SNA it's $32.

We took supershuttle last year from Disney to LAX. It's $16 per person, I think. It DOES pick up about 3 hours before the flight time, but takes about 45 minutes to get to LAX. Last time we left out of LAX the bag check was over an hour long at SWA - we were staying at the airport Marriott and got there two hours early and just about made our flight, so I am perfectly fine with the three hour pick-up. I've run through enough airports in my lifetime - I'd rather get there early.

As soon as I book flights I'm booking Supershuttle also. And it is $16 per person. I don't care what time we leave. I won't have tickets and by then I'll be ready to get home.

If you book your extra nights through ABD, but if you have booked your own post nights then you'll need your own transfer.

I'm in the central time zone.
I was wondering the same thing. Would like to do chat tonight, but not sure I want to be in the other room away from my hubby on the old PC.

Kevin's hosted chats don't start until next week - the 28th is the date he gave. I suppose if enough people decided to come by tonight we could start a week early...but I wasn't planning on joining in.

Hi Folks,

I chose to start our chat nights next week, as I have my yearly eye exam later this afternoon.

I expect that my vision will still be fuzzy. Because of the eye problems I have had, the drops the DR uses last longer than normal.

All that being said....you are welcome to start chatting without my being there.

Just use the ABD chat room. Another group uses the main chat room tonight per the regular schedule.

I will be there next Thursday at 8ish EST.

Thanks,
Kevin

Duh that was just me being a dork & not reading the message closely enough to realize that it starts next week.
Anybody know the answer to if there is a way to get to the chat via iphone?

There is a way to chat via iPad, but I dont believe there's a way to chat via iphone.

Chat moves far too quickly for such a small screen.

actually, the iPad chat app (123FlashChat) can be used on the iPhone. I have used it in a pinch. I agree with Kevin that it is not a very satisfying experience.

When you are asked for the "chat id" enter 135.
