I'm about to make our reservation for the shuttle from MCO to the Hilton (for anyone interested - each person, roundtrip is $34 - but you buy roundtrip in advance. If you buy one way tickets then it's $21 each way = $42 roundtrip per person)

Still need to pack, drop our Golden off at doggie daycare, eye appt for me, mani/pedi, DBF's mom's birthday dinner and um, get to Austin... I figure if we make good time we can be in Austin by 10pm... plenty of time before our 5am wake up call...

yay for Disney tomorrow!
Is that from airport shuttles dot com? I'm still deciding that we may be better off just taking a taxi to Royal Paciic.

Does anyone have the link to the Christmas Mousekeeping envelopes? Now that I'm looking for it, I can't find it.

Only TWO days until we arrive.

Ok, this made me laugh. I just assumed that you were a ways off.

Is it "hair on fire" time now? *rotfl*

Quick note for anyone planning in eating lunch at BOG: I did yesterday, and the food was fantastic, but be warned they close off the line around 2:30-2:45 to enter. It took about 20 minutes after getting in line to even order, then eating time, and they need you out to set up for dinner. So don't wait too long to get in line for it!
Awesome! Thanks!

Oh well I still get to have breakfast in the castle that morning and we'll hit any MK things we missed the night before and head to HS. And if we get HS done on 12/5 we'll hop from AK to MK on 12/6.
Here's the link.

I'm really glad now we decided not to go to MK on the 5th. After they cancelled MSEP I was afraid there might be other impacts. I wonder why they closed Mickey's Philharmagic.

That was from the Mears Shuttle website. I went to the Hilton's site first and they gave an estimate of what prices run from MCO to their property. Taxi is about $55 each way. I wanted to have an idea before I started looking around at shuttle prices because I didn't what to expect. I went with Mears simply because I feel like I know their reputation better.

... or that I'd throat punch him if he procrastinated anymore! Thanks, Wedgie - that's my new favorite thing to say!

And actually, you're more right than I am. "Allegedly" he's been bidding via priceline for the last few days (but did he tell a sista? nope, just kept it to himself) and finally today his bid was accepted. Would it have been nice to know he was at least trying to make a plan? Um yea, it would've been nice to share... but that's just me...

Oh No!!! If you have time you may want to try running to a Minute Clinic or Urgent Care or call your doctor and she if he/she will send a prescription to the pharmacy for you. The same thing just happened to my sister. She woke up with no voice, assumed it was a cold, STILL had no voice 10 days later, FINALLY she went to the walk in clinic and got antibiotics and was better 2 days after that.

Is that taxi quote per person or for the two of you? As you can tell, we don't get out much.

Thanks for putting such a great thread together. I'm sure there's a lot to read and learn to preapare ourselves for the busiest time of the year at WDW.

Our trip starts on the 19th too! We'll be just across the lake from you at AoA! Only a couple more weeks left to wait!!!

I just came here to post about how we leave a WEEK FROM TODAY! And, I realized that I never properly introduced myself. So here goes:

Your 3 sentence biography: I'm a 20-something who is a relatively new Disney World fanatic. My Dbf enjoys the trips, but doesn't get nearly as excited as me. We're gamers who love good movies and travelling. I have a special affinity for Tigger, and Dbf's favorite Disney movie is Aladdin.

First time or Zillionith trip to WDW? This will be our 4th trip in as many years. We both went around age 2, but I won't count those since we don't remember any of it!

Brief background about your upcoming trip (include dates): We're staying Dec 7-Dec 12. First night offsite, then moving to POP for our first onsite stay. I won 4 - One day park hoppers from My Coke Rewards, so we've got 2 park days and 2 days to enjoy the resorts, DTD, and do some outlet shopping.

Why did you choose December? We've been in August, May, and June for Star Wars Weekends. I swore I'd never go again in the heat, so it was only natural for our next trip to be in December. Plus - Holiday decorations!!!

What are you most looking forward to? The castle with all it's lights, new Fantasyland, and Pin trading for the first time.

My most cherished upcoming ADR: Boma. Dbf and I like to eat unique foods, so I made an ADR here for our first trip. We ended up eating there again before we left, twice the next trip, and once on the third trip. Boma is sooo yummy...can't wait!

Favorite Disney snack: School Bread! Closely followed by the Grand Marnier Orange slush.

My Disney touring style - Commando or Turtle? Commando. It's just the 2 of us, so we make extensive use of fastpasses, crisscross the parks, and try to get everything done.

My upcoming trip is: planned down to the second or going with the flow - I am a big big planner for everything. I've planned a lot for this trip since we have so little time. In the end, our main priorities are seeing things specific to the holidays and doing our favorite attractions in each park.

How you might be able to find me while at Disney: - Walking around with my jaw open, gazing at the wonder that is Disney World.

The Disney character that is most like me and why: I see little bits of myself in Rex from Toy Story, Minnie, and Tigger (especially when I'm at Disney and bouncing off the walls!)


I'm also noticing there are quite a few of us from the Atlanta area. That's pretty cool. Hi all you Georgians!
