Awesome! That's our plan now too. I was considering changing everything around because I didn't want to be in such a crowded place, but now that I know it's sort of contained to a certain area - we're definitely keeping with the plan! Although if Nick Jonas is present, I may just oogle him for a few seconds too!

We are driving down, so I would have my own car ~ strollers on the bus wouldn't be an issue.

What would you do?
My initial thought was - two kid under 5, no way. but with the trip already planned, I would go and take things very slow.

What about taking a babysitter? A friend's teen or something. My sister went once in high school as a mother's helper. Free trip to Disney World and she got time in the evenings to do her own thing. Just a thought.

I've been following him and @SOTMKblog. Their conversations are hysterical.

Plus you can ask him questions on the spot. Turns out there's a jalapeño cocktail at WL I want to try.

For anyone interested, I'll be releasing a 7:50 dinner ADR at Liberty Tree Tavern for Monday, Dec. 3rd for two people. Not sure that would be in high demand given it's a Monday and there seem to be a few times open already but just wanted to share.

Can you please add our resorts to our dates? We've finally booked them!

Dec.14th-15th: Art of Animation
Dec. 15th-22nd: Cruising on the Fantasy
Dec. 22nd-24th: Fort Wilderness Cabins

We will be attending MVMCP on 12/14. We are celebrating dd(18)'s high school graduation, dd(22)'s college graduation, and my birthday (which happens to be on 12/23). I just love being at WDW for my birthday and Christmas! So magical!

Of course, it might be different this time if I book a BB.

You know, DSis keeps suggesting we should make a surprise trip in Oct. But I'm out of airline points and there's just not room in the budget. So of course she started talking about last-minute fare discounts and whether we could travel on two days notice. (My inner planner just cringed.) But I found myself saying, "If we did it, we would have to go later than our usual time so that our APs didn't expire mid-trip next year." That would mean early Nov. Its still outside the budget. but If my in-laws cancel; I am going to be in so much trouble.

You can see the fake snow at Osborne Lights.

This may be a silly question, but wouldn't it be cold to be walking around WDW in PJs in December?

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?

Ok, so after an hour of trying to convince myself I could switch to WL, I decided to stay at CSR and keep the preferred room. I made the last payment. NOBODY LET ME CHANGE!!

I know! It just wouldn't be the same with someone else! I think she said when her next trip is, but that someone had already started a roll call. Maybe October?
