a while back someone had mentioned some sites that they used to do mystery shops or something like that to get extra $. Anyone remember what those were?

I am behind on my to do list. We've been under the weather here for almost 2 weeks. I need to finish my window decorations--not much left to do there but wrap up odds and ends. I need to spray paint my mickey head ornaments and attach hooks to those. I am normally one to be done ahead of time, so I'm feeling the pressure! I'm looking forward to getting my Mickey Mail, but am worried about the kids seeing it before I do (and revealing the surprise). It will be a relief when it gets here and I do not have to worry about that anymore. I still need one more poncho. I hope to check that off my list tomorrow.

I know today is only Thursday, but I wanted to wish an early Happy Friday to all!

Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. At least you got some things done!

Today we actually got a few things. We got the kids some Disney shirts, glow sticks, videos for the ride, and a couple games for the ride. Happy just to have some things bought. I told DH we should start making our packing list while things are still fresh in our minds. Enjoy the rest of your planning!

My opinion is if you're going to sit down for the meals, then why not have the characters there ?!? Especially with your little one.

Good luck! We might bump into you at the pool

Thanks. Hope to see you there. We were thinking of doing Disney last year but thought our youngest was too young. Now he's 3 1/2 so I'm hoping it will still be as magical for our older son.

I have 2 meals a day scdeduled every day so think I went overboard. Thanks for the feedback on coolers! Any feedback on groceries? How many days do people generally do each park?
We are using garden grocer this year. I've read good things about them but have not used them myself. We usually do 2 days at mk, 2 days at epcot, 1 day at dhs, 1 day at ak. We are staying longer this trip so we will do more days at mk.

We love character meals!!

Same Day ADR?

So I'm planning a trip for 10 (2 families) and the other family has let me have complete control over the ADRs, with the one exception of requesting a Coral Reef dinner. I got a facebook message last ngiht saying I can drop Coral Reef in favor of something else since we are also doign the Cape May Clam Bake.

There's nothing available that looks great to me right now.

What are the chances of getting a good ressie (I'd LOVE Ohana) while we are there? Do I just keep checking online or call the restaurant directly the day of?

5 weeks until we leave. Our official arrival is 36 days out. 34 days seems to be the magic number for MM, but for us that is on Sunday, so I'm guessing either tomorrow or Monday for our MM to arrive. The wife is finally starting to get excited as we're getting closer. The next month is pretty much booked solid with stuff so it is going to go by quick.

Hope everyone has a great Friday!

Crazy question. We've received 2 sets of ME tags now but nothing from the resort. We have the package with dining and tickets. Should I be expecting more mail?

Puzzled

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for this thread, we are really looking forward to our Nov. trip!

BUT....I'm confused.....we are arriving on Nov 10th staying at POR until the 18th. We aren't planning to hit the parks until the 12th due to the crazy crowds that weekend. (I'm aware of all the activity going on that weekend, F&W, Veteran's Day,Jersey week, Golf tourney,etc.)

According to touringplans and easywdw, crowds look light/moderate most of the week. But, I was playing around on the WDW online reservation site and noticed all the resorts are booked, even mid-week. I asked a CM, but she had no information except that the resorts were full. Should we expect the parks to be packed? We often visit this time of year and the parks have been very manageable (never empty, but nice) .

Does anyone, maybe a CM reading this, have an explanation. There are even rooms available over Thanksgiving week still available and the parks are crazy full those days.

Thanks for any information

My luggage and resort packages came separately. I got my Me tags via UPS and my resort package came regular mail about 2-3 days later.
