I'd be in except the thread creator probably wouldn't appreciate that considering he is in WDW.

We've already added quite a few pages today.

Last year my family tried to get there after 7 and the lot was still closed. So they had to go with the instructions I posted before. Park at MK and take the monorail over. Tell her to allow plenty of time- my family missed me last time.

What, not just the damn bridge?

Since we are showing Cindy's place, I thought I would throw out this pic of the "cute little castle" on the other coast. Crash is looking forward to doing a Coast to Coast sometime and run down the first Main Street.

This is on the bucket list. Never been to the west coast on vacation or to DL. It's definitely something we need to get done before the kiddos are out of the house. Nice pic!

We've never seriously talked about it, mostly because it would cost so much to get out there.

All traffic will be directed to the Magic Kingdom® Park Parking Lot where they will be transported to Epcot® via monorail. Traffic will not be affected for the Disney Family Fiesta 5K featuring the Three Caballeros race

I don't think they have Busses that head over to Epcot from the resorts until after 8:00 that morning. Best bet, unfortunately, is to do the monorail from the TTC.

From here it is not that bad. The one time we looked it was only about $450 more than Florida for the flights. The problem is the whole changing planes thing. Don't really like it much. Direct flights are a lot more expensive and FL is a lot closer. Not sure what the prices are now, but it's definitely something we would like to do eventually.

The wife has relatives in Oregon. Maybe we'll use that as an excuse. Fly to Oregon(it has to be cheaper than CA) and then find a cheap way over to DL for 4-5 days and then either home or find a cheaper flight from another state and visit there as well before leaving. It's worth a shot.

Just hop out, do you business and walk back and hop on while it's moving....

I guess if we drove to Portland Maine like we normally do, we could probably get a reasonable price. Hmmm, time to rethink the summer trip maybe.

As long as it's only jail and they don't ban you from the parks, everything will be OK. Just text Randall, he'll bring the penguins to help bail you out.

Don't give it to them Carl! The bacon is too important. Keep it for yourself or use it for the race this weekend. I bet if you dangle it in front of the guys they'll beat there best times. How fast can you run?
