It's tough keeping track of both. It's making hard to get anything done today.

Will do! We are digging an underground tunnel from New England to Kentucky. The lobsters will be walking all the way. We'll have to figure out where to make the connection.

Have y'all seen this? More info on the fastpass+ system. I'm not sure I like it. It's like, as soon as I figure how to get a leg up on the rookies, they make it easier on the rookies.

Steaks sound good. What is the bubbling smokey toilet trick? Sounds like what I leave behind after eating all the steak.

Welcome sir!

While you’re at the store grab a couple cases of beer.
The clubhouse fridge is getting a might low.


We’re glad you decided to tag along on this adventure.

I'm still kind of skeptical about some of this, but will wait to see it in action. While I think the idea of controlling everything with your phone, I for one prefer to disconnect for long periods of time and leave the phone in the room. Otherwise I'll be getting calls from the office and customers all day. I do like the bracelet idea.

Really hit home with how little time we get with our kids and how important it is to really take advantage of every moment. It also emphasizes the point that "kids won't be kids long, you should probably hurry up and take them to Disney".

yeah I try and have talks like that now. Earlier this week I graphed it out for him. Level of effort pre and post graduation. IE work hard now while your in school and over the course of your life in general things will be easier. Take it easy in school and in general you're going to have to work harder for less for the rest of your life.

I wonder how they'll educate the public on this. I've been trying to follow this, but I'm still fuzzy on the details.

Some of the benefits are just for on-site guests. More ammunition for my pro-DVC argument with the wife.

But the first two you mentioned are the ones laid out for us in Scripture by God Himself, so that seems like a great place to start! Outward behavior reflects the desires of the heart, so it's the desires of the child's heart that we need to address. Do you want what's best for you, or do you think about others first?
I think it comes down to what values do you want to teach your kids. That's part of the reason that I like Boy Scouts so much. They work these core values into the scout oath and scout law in a way that you can build on as your conversations change from "don't hit your brother", to "be respectful of kids on the bus", to "be trustworthy in your actions".

I just got off the horn with one of the Disney operators about our trip next month, and she believed they would have this new system fully in place in about 2 weeks.

Right now it looks like it will give a leg up to guests staying on property for the fastpass system. I guess they are randomly selecting guests to use the system.

I think I like the idea of being able to plan your fastpass selections as part of your day, as I spend a good chunk of the day running to various fastpass locations... I guess there is going to be some kind of kiosk system as well as a mobile app you can use to make selections.

This is my first visit where I can't collect fastpass's in the morning and use them all day, so any leg up on the rookies is welcomed!

Again, Personal Management merit badge! Helps to have someone else hammering these points home. Takes a village as some say!
