If that is a big reason for going? It'll be early march so I expect some of the crowds to be lower but not by much and as of right now there are no ADR for BOG at anytime , still hoping to get a dinner res for BOG but not betting on it
I'd get CRT as early as possible. Then get there 20 minutes before your time. We were at CRT on Tuesday 10 minutes before and it took at least 30 minutes to get seated.

You also have to worry about the ever changing park hours. They might just change the opening to 8am.

Maybe get a smaller cheaper one for the few weeks you are there?

Didn't think of that in the planning huh! How about finding a reason to be busy for that weekend. Maybe a show or something. We are going to see three performances this year....Grinch(Thanksgiving weekend), Christmas Carol(Dec. 16) and Blue Man Group. Maybe spend the money on that and then let them know you'll get a tree the weekend of the 15th.

Tree farm/lot not open yet? Obviously have to avoid driving by.

Discuss getting an artificial tree this year and plan to go to the store later.

Distract, distract and distract.

I know. First I thought 'Hey, Randall isn't so bad' Next thing I knew he was beating me into a pulp.

I got him back by giving him a SM FP though. He was screaming like a girl on the ride.

A few 8gig cards would do the trick. Them just transfer them to your external when you get home.

I was kind of thinking along the same lines. Just be busy that weekend for some reason or another. Finding something fun to do to distract them would be a great idea. I think the hardest part will be keeping it going though since Thanksgiving is kind of early in Nov this year. Not counting the weekend of Thanksgiving, you'll have 2 whole weekends at home before you leave on the 15th.

It might be worth it to look into getting a tree somewhere... I don't think I'd want to leave the house for a week and a half with a live tree in my living room, regardless what I paid for it. Just too much of a fire hazard to leave it unattended. Maybe see if you can find a decent deal on an artificial tree to use this year.

You can buy all the Yuengling you can but can't get a cocktail.

Tell them they were bad this year and you are canceling Christmas.

I think procrastination will be the best way to go in this situation. Or just buy aa artificial tree. At least there will be one up when you get home.

Tim is close enough to Jersey that we could make him disappear in a cloud of snooki, never to be heard frm again

I agree. If you look for deals around Thanksgiving, you can get an artificial tree for pretty cheap (either pre-lit, or w/out lights). It might be a good compromise for this year, and you could use it as a second tree for your kids in future years if you like having a live tree as your main one...

Tossed me to the ground, and started to stomp on my back, legs, and ankles.
If he was doing it right, he was yelling "This is for Carl!" the whole time.

I was expecting more too. A foot the the neck is better than a foot to the back.

The GM is in charge. I can only hope CJ has that sweet Sean Connery accent in January.

Come on Carl, I stopped a full size pickup truck dead in it's tracks. You think a golf cart is going to stop me? Please....

Because no one will look at the corn farmer from Indiana when a few semis full of corn go rolling through a residential neighborhood.

No, I didn't. There are people around here who said they felt it. I know I was laying in bed watching football and I'm pretty sure I was probably asleep before 11.

Well, after this year, a corn farmer from Indiana should be one of the last people you'd suspect of having a few semis full of corn.

Big Thunder Mountain to be a TV show?

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/tvnews.php?id=96989

I think perhaps a big-budget movie might work better... but this sounds like a great idea for a Sunday night family show that could pair up with Once Upon a Time on ABC...
