That, along with the customary seasonal change of restaurant menus, reviews, people changing dates, ADR's and other people joining the roll call...

Part 5 might be aiming low.
Perhaps we have found our next contest!! haha

We are arriving on 12/9 and staying at the movies resort

This will be my 20th time to Disney and my kids 3rd trip!!

I really dont know what I'm more excited for...Pirates League (yes I will be joining the kids in the transition ), BOG, MVMCP or Fantasy Land.

I am a Disney junkie and love knowing I'm not alone in my obsession.

I'm a little shy (even online...go figure ) and have wanted to get more involved in the discussions...I think this is the best way to break the ice.

Thanks

Try to get a few business cards when you get to MCO.
That's the only reason I had the car to begin with .....but it was $160 and I was only wanting it for 2 days. . We figured it was cheaper to take the airport shuttle to RPR then taxi from there the next day to POR. Plus at RPR you have to pay a $14 parking fee PER DAY!

Ditto here. I'm sitting in my Bioethics lecture (which is the most interesting we've had this semester), but I can't help but keep checking here to see what's going on.

Especially since the line to get in there will probably be longer than the one for Space Mountain!

I could have used this last year!! I have many, many pictures of blurry Osborne lights and some really odd ones of the Main St wreathes. Not sure what happened there. Ok really, can he just come with me and take pics?

YAY!!! I was so sad to have a game that I couldn't play. But if they are there for CS too....I want the chocolate cupcake!!! Guessing DH will get the strawberry one so I can try both.

Ugh, outside life issues have made it so hard to keep up lately!

My grandmother is still not doing well. Her BP yesterday was 88/40. Not good.
On top of that, my oldest is having a hard time in school & it's very frustrating for all of us!
Is it time for vacation yet?! Please?!

Watch this YouTube video of a short little ditty that they did when EPCOT was about to open 30 years ago. Dare you not to get the song stuck in your head!

"We're getting ready for you......"

Car sounds like a good plan. Wishing you well with surgery and speedy recovery!! I think it is good to plan conservative, and if you don't need the EVC, you don't need it.

No reason to be shy. We are a friendly bunch. Plus we need your help to have a Part Three of this thread! Welcome

and a big WELCOME to our other new Roll Callers as well!
When will you find out about hubby taking off work? Lots of well wishes going his way today!
