Because we are a chatty bunch and I can't find the page where it was disscussed, can someone tell me what site I can order groceries from if we wanted to buy a few things?
garden grocer and wegoshop I think are the two most common

We used Garden Grocer last year and were pleased. A little pricey but very convenient!

ANYONE and I mean anyone who may have heard, read, seen or otherwise attended parade days that might have some words of wisdom for me, please share your opinion or knowledge of what parade day can be like...
We won't arrive to MK until after 2pm. Will parade taping fill park to capacity? Do I need to cancel my ADR? Can I even use my ADR if it's closed due to crowd level??

Haha gotta love Valgoof

I have NOT been on parade taping day. All I can tell you is what I've read. I haven't read anything about capacity closing, only that (obviously) Main St is heaving. They hand-pick the families/people who stand on Main St to watch the parade.

I have also read that a lot of people avoid MK on taping day so, the rest of the park away from Main St is ok.

There was a thread about it ... let me see if I can find it

I can answer this part, and it's no. If you are not in the park before capacity is reached, you will not be let in just because you have an ADR, and if you gave a credit card guarantee you will still be charged if you don't show up.

However, I very much doubt they will be at capacity.

I liked CSR but not loved it. To be honest, the Casitas part of the resort is less Disney-like than the rest of the property. It's more large hotel and the lesser themed-looking than the rest of the sections. But like I said, it's there mostly for the conference travelers. I think if we end up there again it would be Cabanas 8A/B or 9A/B for us.

I feel for you. The only other trip I've got on the horizon is to the TESOL conference in March. Good networking opportunity, but SOOOOOO not as fun as planning a trip to Disney!

Maybe I can talk Dad into going on another cruise this summer since he loved the one I took him and Mom on in June so much..............umm........is there a support group for people who are addicted to planning vacations?

Where were you when I was debating resorts a couple weeks ago? LOL I have realized that Casitas look a lot like the condo we stayed in offsite last year and others that we stayed at while I was growing up. I think that is why I am drawn to them. Cabanas look nice, but I doubt we use the pool much if at all, so closeness to it doesnt help me. I decided I didn't want POP, so we could have a little respite from everything Disney. My budget decided I couldnt have deluxe. Maybe I will completely throw caution to the wind and not make any requests.

LOL, that was during my hiatus (days off, LOL) and when I came back and started catching up, I saw your question and sadly, you'd already made your decision before I could comment. It was funny because as I read what you were asking, it's was like a slow motion "noooooo" came out of my mouth...

We actually ended up at CSR because we wanted not to do POP. I loved the value of saving money and really, there aren't bad things said about POP at all (more positives, really) but we have older kids and I knew they wanted a better pool... Ironically, we spent less than 2 hours at the pool the entire time because it was just too hot!
