Unfortunately when I did it the girl in the wardrobe room asked if any of the kids that didn't get a part wanted one, then immediately walked us in the next room without asking if any adults did, so I couldn't get a part.

That is why I am happy to be checking luggage this trip! I went on a few short business trips this year with only a carry on. So excited to just stick everything in my suitcase and not think about what size it is. Good luck with your stuffing!

The problem with being a Type A planner, is an inability to change directions (unless the change has also been planned for). But I was afraid if we didn't go we'd regret it. DS has only been pin trading for a few days but it seemed like such a special opportunity. So after confirming that I could easily fit Osborne into our AK day, we went. Grabbed a bus from Epcot to the Coronado and we were off.

The experience was intense. We timed it well as they opened an hour early and we were within probably the first hundred people. Im a bad judge of crowds but if you told me there were a thousand people there, I would not be surprised. Very few kids or casual fans. Almost all hardcore traders or ebay sellers. It was intense. I let DS choose 4. Then when we got to the end of the line we added one more.

It's hard to describe just how intense it was. By the time we got done DS10 was nearly in tears and I was totally overwhelmed. We didn't stick around for trading. I emailed DH to make dinner plans and we headed back to Epcot to decompress.

But we got 5 awesome pins. It was totally worth it.

We were there as well but didn't get there until right at 5:00 and by that time the line stretched clear back to Terre Haute (intentional Christmas Story reference). We waited for about 2 hrs & 45 minutes to get our pins. Luckily we didn't have plans for the night as it was our MK day for the FLE opening and MVMCP was that night. We got 5 pins: 2 of the 'I was there' pins, an Enchanted tales with Belle, a Little Mermaid and a Be Our Guest. LONG wait but worth it. We'll have those pins forever!

Looking at next week's weather. Don't fret about thunderstorm potential, it means rain for a few mins and then it's long gone. The cloud may not even pass over WDW.

You will throw tomatos at me, but I wish it was going to be cooler. (I live in Ft. Lauderdale area so.....) I was hoping to be bundled up a bit during the day. Wah!!! (ducks and hides)

But at least today I can say...

TOMORROW TOMORROW I LOVE YA TOMORROW YOU'RE ONLY A DAY AWAY!

We will be at MK that day too

I would keep it as is...you will get a lot done in terms of rides and popular attractions in the morning if you go at RD. You may want some down time to escape the crowds. Both are great ADRs. Have fun

I am a happy happy girl! Not only did I snag a lunch time ressie for Le Cellier for Dec 27 earlier today, but I just got a dinner ADR for Coral Reef on our last night (jan 5). I have never been to either and I very glad I was able to get them as our trip is last minute.

Now all that is missing from our ADRs is a BOG, but I am not hold my breath on that one!
