If you grocery shop in NC you will understand how important that is.
We are looking at NC... What's with grocery stores?

I am going to be moving to the Bradenton/Sarasota area.
I lived in Bradenton for a bit

So far we didn't have to change our park plans. But I'm happy that we are able to do all of the PM EMH days! The only thing that I missed out doing is getting an ADR for 50's PT. I waited too long to make our ressies and now they are booked for 12/2 . We had to settle with H&V for dinner.

Maybe something will open up We still might take advantage of PM EMH - our MIL will watch the kiddos (who will probably crash around 7) at night. However, I'm betting on being in Resort Lounges enjoying wine and grown up time... Although Epcot is pretty inviting at night, good drinks, food and great atmosphere in the World Showcase!

I've been looking online and so far nothing has opened up for 50's yet. It's still booked. I doubt that I will be able to get that for us.

I am so confused! A few of you have talked about getting the trip paid off and that it has to be paid off by a certain date. When I made my resort change the other day the CM said my balance was due by Dec. 1 (the day I check in). Am I missing something?

You must have a resort only booked. If you book a package through WDW, the balance of the trip is due 45 days prior to check in. MYW tickets, resort, and in our case, free dining is included in our package.

Packages have to be paid 45 days before check-in. Room only have different rules.

Where I live we have a couple of Food Lions - if you lived in Bradenton maybe you are familiar with Food Lion leaving Florida a while ago? We also have Harris Teeter - quite expensive. Just can't compare to Publix or Wegman's. Maybe I'm just spoiled.

Theme Park Attire

If it's cool enough for long pants, do you all wear blue jeans? I'm trying to think how to ask this delicately......and there just isn't a way to do this. Does anyone wear stretchy pants? So we'll be on the DxDDP and I'm sure to pop a button on my Levis! I mean I come home from work, take off my shoes (and anything else constricting me) and I throw on some black, pocketed fleece pants and a tshirt. I'm trying to figure out a way to add some nice-looking, comfortable pants that will be "giving". What do you wear?
