Canon has really cornered the market on P&S.
That's the one I was looking at on Amazon. Might check out the A2400, but I wouldnt want to spend more that that. I just dont take a lot of pics besides on vacation.

So that leaves me to plan!! I am really really considering dropping DHS now and just going there late evening. Thanks for feedback earlier.

Does anyone know how late they do the Disney Jr show? I guess I can consult the internets for that answer. The more I think about it, I love the first park day to be at MK so DD can have her first (non merry go round) ride in Fantasyland. I am going to be a bawling mess so it also gives me more time to ride with her on Dumbo, Pan and Small World over and over again.
This sounds like a WAY better plan. The kids all were done with HS in under half a day on our family trip in 2010, And they were actually old enough to like thrill rides then. For a little kid fantasyland is going to be a lot more fun and interesting than HS! Not to mention it just wouldn't be a trip to Disney World without going to MK first, well at least not for us!

I have 3 Nikons...

The battery on it is rechargeable too mine lasted five years before I had to replace it because it didn't hold a charge anymore. Great tough camera well worth the investment!
Thanks. Will check those out.

Good thinking! A snack will be needed during MVMCP. Surely it will be open.

Does DTD come alive before noon? I'm guessing the stores open at 10am? I know the boat service starts at 10am (I think I read that somewhere).....but do the buses run earlier than that? It looks like we may have to get our fill of DTD on our first full day while at POR, which is okay to ease into our vacation. We'll have late EMH at DHS the night before so it'll be nice to relax a little the next morning/afternoon. The next day it's gang-busters MK day RD to MVMCP

DH and DS were watching the game while I was catching up here with 4 pages to read. I heard DH yell, "YES!" NYY won!

DS was mad when he found out that Lou Ford is with the Orioles now. He was part of the Long Island Ducks not too long ago. DS got his autograph when DH took him to a game.

Wow! Page 240 and just 10 pages to go. We will definitely be on the 3rd incarnation of this thread before the weekend is out.

OTOH, I am trying to watch what I'm eating so I don't gain anymore weight. I'll be making sure to try to use portion control for both DS10 and myself while in Disney as well as drinking a lot of water. DS is overweight for his age and height, although he is starting to lose the extra weight he gained over the summer. So it's a start
Soon, my oldest started preschool and seems to bring home a new illness every week... Blah! She's a toughie it's my 15 month old that turns into a cuddly little beast!!

It's a life style change- gotta try your best and since you physically can't exercise the diet part is great! I find that harder than exercising.... Well hopefully everything starts feeling better soon like 49 days soon!!!!

So all this camera talk has me excited to bring my DSLR this trip. We moved to picturesque NH and I stopped taking pictures (lots of emotional stuff, losing my dad, PPD, just life has been off for 6 years) So still working through stuff but trying to do some things I loved before. So, my big dilemma I don't want to carry a large camera bag but I have 3 lenses and a flash... It's tight though... So my big debate, larger camera bag (no!) 2 lenses ( ) or stuff it in and go with it?

I made all of our ADRs at 180 days so we have an 8:35PM ADR for PTC. We've never eaten there so I'm psyched! Already know I'm getting the sampler.

I'm pretty sure it's about 10. We have walked around waiting for things to open before an 11 am lunch while visiting with family from the area.

DS hasn't had a good start for this year either. He broke his wrist over the summer and couldn't play gym until 3 weeks ago. Then I had to pick him up from school last week b/c he was throwing up a little bit (turned out it was from the post nasal drip due to his seasonal allergies). And on top of that, last Thursday, he went to a classmate's b-day party and sprained his ankle . He couldn't participate in gym this week as well as next Monday. After Monday, he can participate again.

As far as dieting, I'm still trying to lose the 4lbs I gained back in April when we went to PA for a few days. Eating out everyday caused me to gain weight.

I wish we could've made them that early. It was hard enough trying to convince my mom and brother that this is the way it's done now. I screwed us up by waiting too long to try and make an ADR for 50's. Everyone is ok with not doing it, except me. I really love the atmosphere and the interaction with the CM's. I'm still not too sure about H&V, even though we did the Playhouse Disney character breakfast there back in 2006 when DS was 4.

TOFUbeast...

Since we are getting close to the limit on this thread, could you put a link to the 3rd thread when you start it (if that's possible since this has been moving like wildfire lately)? I have a feeling it might just get there tonight or by tomorrow morning if this keeps up.

Thanks!

VERY good idea! Our dinner ADR on our MVMCP night is at 5:30. We'll definitely need a snack between then and midnight! Fingers crossed it'll be open!

I'm annoyed right now, but nothing to do with our trip so this is completely off topic. I'm supposed to be out with a friend listening to another friends band play in 10 min but her DH is out and not home yet so we can go. So do I go alone or just sit in. Grrr!

Happy thought, happy thoughts!! WDW is 51 days away
