This is Grizzly... The only requirement that I had for this trip was that if my mother was going along, she had to rent a scooter to get around. So, this is just another reason for going during a lower season, I could only imagine what I would hear if we went during Easter, the summer of Christmas. Just under a week to go and we are starting to make our plans for the trip. Of course with a 3 year old, we plan mornings only and fly by the seat of our pants for the evenings since our little beast still takes 3 hour naps. But the hope is that this will give my mother some down time and since the little guy goes to sleep early, we might be able to do some later evenings to see more stuff . We being any combination of 2 out of the 3 of us, with the remaining person hanging out with the sleeping child. Our biggest excitement about this trip is that our son will likely be big enough to reach the 40" mark for a lot of rides, opening a whole new world of opportunities for our little guy to enjoy. Plus, I am admittedly a huge Beauty & the Beast fan, so seeing the new area is exciting for me. Stay tuned for more...

Looking forward to your report. We've had MIL tag along a few times and we lived. Admittedly she was with us when we were newbies and basically "winged" everyday. I doubt she could keep up now with our kids being older trying to hit every ride 2 or 3 times a day as well as make all of our ADRs.

Can't wait to read your TR. I also have one of "those" MIL's. This is my 2nd marriage and my previous MIL and I still have a great relationship (so I know it is not me). I always try to view my current MIL as entertainment. I tell DH when we go to her house that we don't just get dinner, we get dinner and a "show". Try to keep a sense of humor and I look forward to your adventure!

Hmmm....Grizzly seems to have trip report bombed my trip report. Not sure how I feel about that, but considering I am the one who sort of stole his Dis account I suppose I will let it slide. So if all goes according to plan, this is what our trip might look like. In past trips we have been thwarted by several beastly incidents including Tigger getting sick on the monorail, Tigger never waking up from a nap until 3am the next morning, and other Tigger related calamities that have caused us to throw plans out the windows. I am not attached to this plan in any way, but I think it's always nice to have a game plan. As Grizzly said, we have no evening plans because last trip we only made it out of the room twice after nap time, but MIL expressed interest in only one thing, 'the fireworks'. So we will make sure she gets out to see all three main shows, Fantasmic, Illuminations and Wishes, even if it is without Tigger. So here is our plan:

Sunday 13th: Flight is 7:55am with arrival at 10:40.
Pick up Rental car and drop Tigger and Mom off at DHS so that we can watch Playhouse Disney before it goes down for refurb the next day
Grizzly and MIL continue on to hotel to check in.
Fingers crossed room is ready or MIL will be peeved despite telling her checkin is actually 4pm.
Pick up and figure out scooter rental
ADR: Jiko 5:30 (Not sure how this will go with Tigger, we avoid restaurants here, but he has recently developed a love for coloring, so maybe it will be okay)

Monday 14th: Rope Drop at Epcot
Rides to see(not necessarily in this order): Test Track, Figment, Soarin, Finding Nemo, Turtle Talk with Crush
As nap time approaches, Dad and Tigger head back to hotel, if MIL is up for it we will tour the world showcase and drink some.

Tuesday 15th: Breakfast 7:30am at Kona Cafe (will try to arrive early in hope of making MK opening ceremony)
(Does anyone have any suggestions on car/scooter logistics?) Should we park at TTC then take monorail and scooter to restaurant? Or drive to Kona, leave scooter in car, then drive back to TTC and park before going to MK?
MK 9am (Hoping to make rope drop/opening ceremony)
Rides to See Without rushing MIL: Tea cups, Dumbo, Peter Pan, IASM, Barnstormer, BTMR, Pirates, Jungle Cruise, Tiki Room, Buzz Lightyear, People Mover
Grizzly wants lunch at Be Our Guest, so we will probably try to go early around 11:00, hopefully we will be hungry despite breakfast. We probably won't be able to hit all our rides this day either.
Back to our hotel to nap by 2pm

Wed 16th: HollyWood Studios Rope Drop 9am
Rides We Care About: TOT, RRC, Star Tours, Great Movie Ride, Back Lot Tour, Honey I shrunk the kids playground (Tigger while MIL on Great Movie Ride)
Back to hotel to nap by 2pm

Thurs 17th: EMH MK 8am
Finish list of todo's from previous day, but start with new fantasyland and Little Mermaid and Story Time will Belle
Maybe watch a castle show or a parade
Nap time by 2pm

Friday 18th: Animal Kingdom 9:00am
Things we care about: Safari, Expedition Everest, Triceratops Spin, Bone Yard, Animal trails

Saturday 19th: Happy Birthday Tigger!!! I'm thinking of having Mickey Mouse call him to wish him Happy Birthday.
Return flight at 11:55, plan to be at rental car return by 9:00am so as not to stress out MIL.

I love touringplans.com, so we will be using their touring plans or a custom touring plan from their ap to guide us through the parks each day. This trip is mostly about MIL and making sure she had a good time. I think she will have a good time if the following happens:
-She can maneuver through the parks easily with her scooter. (She has had double knee replacements and while she can walk, can't walk nearly enough for Disney)
-We don't wait more than 15 minutes for any attraction
-She can ride some rides with Tigger and hear him laugh and see him smile
-We go at a slow enough that she doesn't feel rushed and she can see and look at what she wants to look at along the way.

I think now is the perfect time for her to come because Tigger has no sense of urgency, and no sense that as he sits and SLOWLY eats a snack lines are just getting longer and longer. I'm sure they will make a good pair because while Tigger snacks or looks at ducks or whatever, MIL can look around and relax too. In a few years she would never be able to keep up!

Ha! I laughed when I read "so I know it's not me"! I'm pretty sure it's not me either as Grizzly totally understands all my complaints. Yet Grizzly only makes the situation worse because he kind of eggs on MILs anxiety issues. Just the other day he was telling her about how strollers get stolen all the time. I almost killed him later. She's the type of person who will skip out on riding something in order just to watch her locked and INSURED scooter to make sure it's not stolen. She has done this at our local zoo, and refused to go into an exhibit so she could watch the stroller. The same stroller that we leave all by itself every time we go into that exhibit at the zoo when she is not with us. Silly lady!

Dinner and a show! I like that too!

So things are looking good. I sent my MIL an email (yes, this is our primary form of communication with one another) with a grocery list and told her to star anything that she would also like, and to add anything to the list that she wanted. This is a subset of her response:

Drinks:
Whole Milk
Bottled Water *
Seltzer
Beer (Sam Adams and Something else) ************************************************** ************************************************** ********************

Her bazillion stars on beer made me smile.

I can't wait to hear how your trip goes! It sounds to me like you and your husband both have a great sense of humour about MIL though. I take it you are DVC members since you mentioned points? At least you know you will have many more trips to WDW in the future if this one turns out to be one you'd rather forget.

My husband, two daughters and I will be arriving on the 19th with my MIL, FIL, BIL, his wife and my niece and nephew. None of them have been before. We have been many times and are DVC members, so we will have many trips to come. It is my MIL's 60th birthday and she is paying for the whole trip! My MIL is the best, never interferes, very easy going, but has difficulty making a decision, mostly due to my FIL who can be over-bearing. Hubby and I plan on giving everyone a copy of our plans, park hours etc., and its up to everyone if they want to join us or not. We have a few meals scheduled together (and some scheduled just for us). We also got tickets for MIL and FIL to see La Nouba. I am happy to play tour guide, and am really hoping that my in-laws have a good time. I am a little worried that they won't "get it" the same way we do, but on the other hand I have to remember that not everyone does. I'm sure hubby and I will just drink a little more than usual and we'll all get along just fine!

Welcome! I hope you guys have a great trip too. You summed up my plans exactly! We are DVC members, so we have plenty more trips in our future if this one is awful. For me this trip is all about playing tour guide in such a fashion that MIL can enjoy the parks while being the least irritated by things I know irritate her (crowds, waiting in line, poor restaurant service). I bolded your last line. We rarely drink at home. A case of beer can last months in our fridge, and the only reason why it doesn't last longer is that MIL has a beer when she is babysitting (after our son is asleep of course). I will definitely be drinking more than usual this trip. MIL is fond of Sam Adams and Mud Slides, so we'll have some fun with that.

One good thing I can say about MIL is that she doesn't interfere with our parenting. We have very strict rules about TV and sugar consumption and she follows all of them. I know she doesn't agree with the fact that I send my son to daycare instead of being a stay at home mom like she was, but she has never said anything about this to me. She also never gives any unsolicited parenting advice. Quite a dream MIL from that perspective.

Oh no! Anybody order a wrench because we might have a bit of a wrench here. Yesterday Tigger was odd. Overly snuggly, followed by periods of seemingly fine and jumping around. Checked him for a fever this morning, he was fine so I sent him to daycare. Well I picked him up and he had had the same kind of snuggly followed by fine day except lots of crying which is extremely rare for beast child. Well he said his mouth hurt so I took a peak in there and there is the most awful looking sore under his tongue. Think wolverine came and took a chomp out of his mouth and then painted the inside white. I feel so awful for him. I've never seen anything that looked so painful. It's almost dime size. I'm really hoping it's just the world's worst cold sore, but I'm worried he has hand foot and mouth. No other symptoms except that he looks dreadfully ill, very pale and his eyes just look sickly. Lot's of tlc for this guy. I'll see what the doctor says tomorrow if he'll even see me.

I am laying here laughing thinking of my recent trip to WDW for Xmas and NYE. We had a wrench... Day before we go DD8 gets fever.... Ugh... We ended up falling like dominoes during the two week trip. We got home yesterday and of 8 of us we have 1 pneumonia, 4 case of bronchitis, 1 double ear infection and a plain old cold. We also had the MIL join us and yes she is one of those MIL's and I sworn she would never ever join us and taint my/our happy place.... But apparently the good Lord had other plans... My FIL passed away suddenly 2 weeks before we are supposed to leave... Our usual cast of characters for our bi-annual trip is me, DW, DD13, DD8, SIL, BIL and niece and we go every 2 years ... So when FIL passes I am left with 3 choices, 1) Stay home 2) Go and leave MIL go fend for herself and have DW and SIL worried about her 3) invite MIL to go with us against all instincts. We had a quick family meeting and decided 3 was the only real option.... Again despite everyone's concerns.... Well as you might imagine given the illness, circumstances before the trip, and nature or MIL to begin with this was not going to end well... And you'd be right.... Our normal group has all asked for a do over... Which makes me laugh, we began our count down to our new trip 713 days, while still on this trip and for the first time I was glad to board ME to go home.... The beautiful thing .as pointed out in another post is that this only one trip and it stinks for now, it is sure to be remembered as "that trip" in the future. There will be new DVC adventures..... Yippieeeee!

Based on all I have read in your post it sounds like you will have a great time.... If it gets hairy think about the trip I just came off of,,,, it can be lots worse. Yeah we had to insist on the MIL getting a scooter too... Can not tell you how many ppl she hit and we apologized on her behalf to.... Time for more meds for me..... Lol

Hope the little one feels better soon... Always a bummer when they are feeling punky....
