BTW....


for those of you who either haven't seen him, or haven't seen him since the October meet.... I thought I'd share a couple more recent pics of Baby Gus-Gus.








As you can see.... Even as a baby he's being surrounded by all things Disney.

Thanks!
I'm right there with DC's great advice, as I think he hit the major points including the dining plan ...

Although I've yet to do solo, I spend a lot of solo time while down in WDW and have checked out most of the resorts. If you're looking at a value, I'd recommend POP. If you can spend a little more cash, you should take a look at the Port Orleans resorts. If I end up doing my October trip solo, I'm probably going with Port Orleans Riverside.

As mentioned, there's looking to be another SSC meet sometime in October. Possibly sometime around 10/19-10/20 or 10/26-10/27??? Somebody/anybody (Darcy???) needs to lock in a date

Last year's meet was a blast, and it's a great way to do a solo vacation, as you can do your own thing, or meet up with other DISers for miscellaneous havoc

Awesome pics! Nothing wrong with starting the Disney conditioning as early as possible

If it was mentioned at all.... I'm pretty sure the bottle of rum I killed wiped it from my memory.

(Obviously though it wasn't a pirate though, since I was handed a bottle of rum and told to drink it, instead of having to steal the rum myself)

Oh and I have something to say. . .CTNurse and TheBigE throw an awesome partay. . .lol (yes I intended to spell it that way). They make it easy to never have to leave the party site (or make it absolutely dangerous to leave the party site without a designated walker, driver, hand holder. . .etc. I had the best time.

Oh, and as for Pyrate Parties. . .I cannot comment as I have never been to one. . .I've only organized WDW and DLP Parties. . .or group meetups, whatever you prefer. . .lol.
