Also what type of coffee makers and how many coffe pods do they give u each day (and what type?) I like decaf and flavored and DH likes bold caffeinated ones!
Thanks
Oops, forgot to respond about the coffee. It was the cuisinart pods, and I believe we got 4 of them per day. I like stronger coffee, so I brought my own Melitta pods.

Oh, yes, Illuminations is not to be missed, you can't get the meaning if you don't see it at Epcot with the sphere and all the lighting.

Yes, I highly recommend seeing Illuminations: Reflections of Earth at Epcot itself. While you may be able to see parts of the fireworks portion from AoA, it's really a musical show to be seen at Epcot itself for the full experience. Fireworks are incorporated but it's not a traditional fireworks show.

love fireworks, and everything Disney...but seeing Illuminations with 2 young kids is not really a must do. They won't get it, and the waiting around sitting at a spot for the show to begin is not fun. Maybe try Wishes at MK, and save illuminations for when they are older? Just our experience and opinion. Others may say no way its a must do....this is coming from going to Disney every year since our boys were babies.

I've been in Sept. and it's a wonderful time to go, but the last time I did, on two different days the heat was the worst I ever experienced. One day it was so bad I got heat exhaustion and my family had to get me into the pool before I passed out. (luckily there was one nearby.) I now take a kerchief like you're describing and it helps a lot. Have a wonderful trip!

Well, it's one bottle for me and DH and our trip is 11 days. It's for having a beverage in the evening while the kids are swimming or watching tv.

But it has been a hectic start this school year. I'm the computer teacher, and on day 1 I had a kindergartener who wouldn't stay in his chair. I asked him to please sit down, and he put his hands on his hips and yelled, "NO!"

Sigh.

Storage

I'm wondering how your finding the space for luggage, clothes, extras. We going to be a group of 23 with 4 suits going for two weeks. I'm wondering if were going to find were tripping over luggage and disorganize belonging with teens. Before we did AStars and put all the suitcases into the closet. But now there really isn't a closet out of the way....

Well, I hope you and your DH enjoy every drop of it.
As for the kindergartner, that's just lovely. I'm a pediatric nurse. Isn't it sad to see how some children are being so socially and morally neglected? They aren't being taught manners and more important, they aren't being taught to recognize and respect authority. * Big Sigh.*
Have a wonderful trip.
