The taxi cost is total - for as many as you can fit

If we were more than two people - a taxi would've been better since it's a group rate versus the shuttle which charges per passenger. Hope that make sense.

Last year we were 4 for Swan & Dolphin so we did the taxi. It was cheaper and faster than the shuttle,

zOMG 10 days over here. I can NOT keep up with this thread!

Trying to decide whether or not to do online check in. And my new shoes I got a month ago are not working out. Do you think it's possible to break in a pair of shoes in a week?
My backup pair of sneakers for Disney are starting to bother me. They feel great for a while and then there's one spot where they rub my toe. I keep hoping they stretch out a bit and maybe that will help. So far no luck. I'm going to have to mokeskin or something. I'd try to break a new pair in before you go if the alternative is going with shoes that aren't working at all.

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!
Welcome, and hello fellow Georgian! The gamers in the thread have already outted themselves. What's your poison of choice?

For sure! We're only 2 so roundtrip by taxi would be over $100 (using the estimated $55 per trip listed on the web) so with the roundtrip via shuttle only costing $68 we decided to go that way instead. I figure the difference will be what we spend on lunch

You're so lucky!! Those 2 hours are going to be long. Busy weekend, though? I'm following you on twitter. No pressure to provide the most amazing live trip reporting ever with tons of pictures, especially of food and NFL.

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.
Welcome!!!!!

I was productive this morning. I have more stuff I could do but nothing that can't wait 2 weeks.

Actually MIL and FIL want to see everything we're doing. So I've got serious pressure to post.

I'm actually really looking forward to the weekend. I planned the trip to avoid the parade taping so we don't leave until Monday. Definitely nice to have two days to pack and finish planning. Most stuff is done. I actually expect to spend some time gaming this weekend, to keep me from bouncing off the walks.

Totally agree. Our DHS plan involves hitting a few things early and getting out by 11. Probably do lunch at Beaches & Cream

I feel totally fine, so its kinda weird. We have an on-site clinic at my work, but they don't have any openings today. Oh well, I'm sure I'll be ok!
