Random question... Has anyone been to one of the hs pm emh in early December? We're not getting hoppers but I was thinking of changing our only hs day to Sunday because it will help us have more breaks later and we can take my ds3 to the dance party (he's a night owl) but I'm worried it will be crazy the whole day. We live near dlr so tsmm isn't essential to us and if dh rides rnr, it will be single rider, but we are not fans of the crowd madness. What do u all think? Is it still easy to get into shows or do you have to show up pretty early to them on crowded days? Touring plans rates it a 6.5.

And definitely notify the bank. and big lots has some cute Mickey wrapping paper and Mickey and gang halloween window clings

I say wear whatever you like! There are so many people there that wear so many styles of clothing. Wear what makes you feel comfortable. For cool days and nights I will wear jeans. I wear them almost every day so that's what I feel comfy in. Plus I like having pockets

We're going to be at HS on 12/2. I picked that day b/c of the EMH to give us more time to enjoy it. I'm hoping it's not that crowded (by that I mean the level of the summer-time crowds ), but we shall see.

I agree, wear what you like. Most people won't even notice what you're wearing. And if you're warm & comfy, they might just be jealous if they do

We're also on DxDDP so if I want to ensure that my blood circulates normally I will have to wear stretchy

I'm wearing yoga pants

Of course! I mean it's more of a health issue rather than a fashion issue, right?

Of course! I don't want to be blue from the waist up. People will think I'm a smurf .... then I'll be asked to leave for being in costume.

Talking of smurfs .... if you choke one, what colour do they go

I do like wegmans. I have very few choices in NH so I drive 50 minutes to a food co op (think trader joes/whole foods/wegmans) it's a bit pricey but the three local grocery stores are horrible (one is Walmart and the other two are expensive and as big as rite aid!) I remember only publix and Winn Dixie when I lived... Oh geez it was like 13 years ago?!

I have heard the crowds are a bit higher at parks with EMH but still nothing comparted to summertime hours. Maybe a 6 out of 10

We totally go for comfort when it comes to going to the parks - stuff that won't chafe/isn't too tight. We do t-shirts and pull-overs/zip up light jackets. And comfy pants (I wear well broken-in jeans). Shorts of course if we're going to ride a bunch of water rides. Lots of ladies wear stretchy pants or even sweats. Be comfy, be happy

I say wear what you like! If you want you could go buy some new clothes... I see a lot of cute outfits involving stretchy pants, leggings and yoga type pants!!

I a working on getting out of my comfort zone of jeans... I'm bringing a summer dress and sweater for a few date nights.....

I say a taxi will give you some options/less worry and still be cheaper than a car rental (plus less aggravation!).
I agree on the taxi being cheaper. You mentioned three possible areas of concern Even if they all become issues and you take a cab it should still be less.

We avoid all parks with PM EMH. But we are doing Epcot for an adults night out. We'll be at MK during the day though.

We have Food Lion. they were always kinda crappy but they did this weird split a couple years ago. Some stayed FOod Lion. Some went more upscale to Bloom. It's pretty much still Food Lion. Some renamed to Bottom Dollar. I won't even go into those on a dare. really, who thought that was a good name?

Sounds like we have it good. Our main grocery store chains are Giant and Safeway. On the upscale end we have Whole Foods and Harris Teeter. And we just got Wegmans. And some communities have smaller chains too. But everyone at least has a Giant and a Safeway. Those vary but some are quite nice.
