I understand that the parks actually have free wifi now. Does anyone have any experience using it? Does it work everywhere or just in certain hotspots?
I haven't had any trouble using it at MK, Epcot and DHS. Sometimes it drops but picks right back up. Also used it at Boardwalk and Beach/Yacht Club. It's got a pretty good range. Only dropped for a few minutes when I walked between the resorts.

ADR Advice?

Okay, I was finally able to access my ADRs online (I have been trying all day). Our travel party is myself, my DH, and DS (9) and we fly in at noon on 12/25.

We have eaten everywhere below before except for 'Ohana, Tusker House, and Cape May. I'd love to snag a Le Cellier lunch while they are still 1 credit and a Be Our Guest!

Here is what I have so far. What do you think? Keep in mind there is skim pickings right now

That's what I do, as well. Lots of times I'll park it in an area where we're going to be in & out of places and I just don't want to deal with it. But it made a HUGE difference for me, once I got over having to rent one in the first place.
That's great to know about the Target coupon! Guess I will be making a run there tomorrow. With the DxDDP I estimate we will have over $100 in tips and I will definitely stand in line at the front desk at AoA looking like an idiot to save 24% on our expenses!

Good to know about the EVC too, sissy found out from the podiatrist today that she tore her plantar fascia. She's in a boot now and SHOULD be ok by the time we leave in 2 weeks, but if it still hurts her to walk I will be renting her an EVC regardless of her being worried others in the park will just think she's lazy. Funny thing is, my littlest niece broke her foot three days before our 2010 family trip and was in a wheelchair the whole time!

You might have noticed that my boyfriend glitters. It's just something that he does in the sun. Don't worry about it.

Just back from Target and they didn't even bat an eye. DH went with me and we were able to do 4 transactions. So tomorrow I need to find another computer to print off of and get another $50 card and then I'll have $50 in Target GC and turn around and put that onto yet another $50 disney card!!! Woohoo! $300 in gift cards for $250. I can handle that!

I have one more load of laundry to do. I packed all of DH's undies, and he says he's going commando. :P

The stomach bug is still going around our school. One of the teachers suggested Airborne and Emergen-C, so I'll go out tomorrow to try to find those.
lol! I thought I was the only one who packed their kiddos in ziplocs. My SIL thinks I'm nuts but one day when she has kids she'll understand.

Don't know if everyone else knew this but I just noticed that the Castle light show runs twice - just before and just after Wishes (on nights with two parades).

Kathy, was it you that asked about wine for sale? I just saw a few bottles for sale in our resort store (Boardwalk). Might be an option to check for a quick bottle.

There is a sticky thread over in the disABILITIES forum all about ECV rentals, which have changed somewhat- only three companies deliver to the Disney resorts' bell services now (many of them did previously) so you don't have to be there when they drop it off. I'm renting from Apple, I believe beatlesblonde is as well. As for looking lazy, I don't look sick either, but I don't really feel like I get the stink eye from anyone. People seem pretty nice about it, I guess they figure I have my reasons.

Aargh! Just realized The camera card reader is in the bedroom. And I'm afraid to go in there in case DS isn't totally asleep. *sigh* the trip is huge fun so far. Just wish I didn't feel quite so frazzled. I clearly need more sleep.

Unrelated question - I have a Nikon D40 and I accidentally turned on the histograms. Now when I look at the pics I took they're completely covered and I can't figure out how to turn it off. No idea what I even hit. Any ideas?

Another random note - got an email today from Flying Fish about a Veuve Cliquot (champagne maker) wine dinner. We get these all the time but since we live in DC they're not particularly useful. But this one is next Friday. Our last night.
