I'm really looking forward to all the stuff they'll have! My baby, 14yrs old, is a Little Mermaid fan and I've read that AoA's shop is the place to find some great Ariel merchandise!

ETA: I just checked the roll call wondering if you had put any editorial comments.

I really should have done a PTR.
Um....I vote WL! It's my fav resort.....I've only stayed onsite twice, once at CSR during the summer and once at WL second week of December......it's unbelievable. This December makeshift third on-site stay.....at POR. I'm dying to see how this story ends!

Are you there when I am??? I should really pay more attention to that stuff.
Hah! Even an hour's too much on a Friday!!!

(Don't listen to me, I'm just giddy from it being a noon dismissal today and no school on Monday - 3 1/2 day weekend )

Yep. We'll be there the 19th - 23rd, so at the end of your trip. I seriously can't WAIT until next Friday when I'll be able to say I'll be at WDW in 2 months!!!

Huh........for my dates it was only $75 more that POP for a Little Mermaid room.......weird. I don't think I'll EVER understand hotel pricing!

Good good.

A little stress here and there, but we're making it work. She's MUCH more laid back and relaxed than I am, that's just our personalities. I'm the one waking up at 6:45 on the 180 day marks making ADRs and whatnot. Haha

Ok, December peeps, I am experiencing some trip planning angst this morning. I had compared the crowd calendars from touring plans and Easy WDW - and they were very similar - to determine which park to visit which day. Then, today, I looked at Undercover Tourist's crowd calendar and it is drastically different from the other two calendars and pretty much contradicts my park picks. Do any of you use the crowd calendars and which one do you find to be most accurate? I should add that last year we used touring plan and it seemed pretty accurate.

Does UT give any explanations for their numbers? I like easywdw because he tells you why he rated the parks that way. And then you can make your own choice, like an EMH park is always going to be not recommended, but if you want to do EMH, then you go into it knowing it will be more crowded than the other parks. I would say if TP and Easywdw agree, I would trust that.
