Sorry - not sure how to do multiple quotes in one post yet.

I looked into Garden Grocer and I'm not sure that we will make it through a 12 pack. We are only there 6 nights and we are on the dining plan so I have a feeling that we are going to be stuffed as it is and I don't drink that much and we are planning on having some boat drinks at SAB.

How does the cost of the Gardern Grocer compare to using a personal shopping service? DD has a peanut allergy so I'm planning on packing most of our snacks but I think that we are going to need some juice boxes, water, cereal and yogurt once we get down there.

Have only eaten at Brown Derby (and that was back in the 90's!!), but this year we are planning on trying Yachtsman since I am traveling with 2 carnivores.

So THAT'S why they have the time out corner there!

I live in Binghamton! I would never consider driving to WDW because I can't stand being in the car for more than 3 hours! Our flight for May 26 was only $280 R/T.

I'd pick Brown Derby over Yachtsman although I like them both.

Airfare has been purchased!!!

Though of course it went up $80 from last night to this morning when I booked it. Story of my life!!! Funny thing is that when I went in a few minutes ago to take a look the same flights and times were $100 more so I guess I should be happy that I booked it this morning!

Relieved that part is over!!

Keep looking. If it's with Southwest, you can get the difference in the form of a credit if the price goes down. No fees either. I just booked four flights yesterday and used credits from past flights where prices had gone down after I booked them. Those credits helped bunches.

I didn't know that you could get a credit for the difference. That's great to know. Needless to say the flight we have booked have always gone up instead of down

Absolutely no problem on the separate quotes, but I wanted to let you know that I have a "How do I" section on page 1 (Other Useful Info) and multi-quoting is one of the topics if you want to give it a try. I know some people have issues if they try to multiquote from their phones, but I can't help there):


How do I...

Multi-quote more than one post?
There are 3 buttons on the bottom right corner of every post. The normal Quote button, the Multi Quote button ("+) and the Quick Reply button (scroll and quill). Click the middle Multi Quote button ("+) on all of the posts you want to quote. The buttons will backlight red when you select it. When you have selected all of the posts, go to the bottom of the page and click on the POST REPLY button. You will be taken to a Dialog box where all of the posts will be quoted, ready for your answers.

Make a ticker?

Post a Photo on the DIS?

We have a slight change of plans, but all for the best, I think DD5 really wants to stay at AoA in a LM room. I'm a resort snob. I admit it and am ok with it For me, the resort and amenities are a big part of the vacation. Values don't cut it. BUT, she's 5 and I thought about how in a few years she might not care much about the LM so we booked AoA for 8/14 and 15. Still waiting on AP discounts, but seriously considering BC or YC CL for the next 3 nights before we go to VWL. Even if we don't do CL, we'll still be at BC/YC because I think the kids will love Stormalong Bay. I love CL! DH can take it or leave it, but I think with young kids, it's so convenient in the morning. Never stayed CL at BC or YC so that's exciting too

You have to go to a hotel and transfer.

When I wanted to do this a few years ago, I went into Guest Relations at Animal Kingdom Park and asked how to get to Downtown Disney. They said there is no direct bus. They said that the best bus to take is Coronado Springs. I had thought the best option would be Animal Kingdom Lodge. They said no because there are two bus stops within Animal Kingdom Lodge.

I waited for the Coronado Springs bus. Some people got out of the line and switched to a different line, but I didn't think much of it.

I got on the Coronado Springs bus. I was surprised to discover that I had to stay on for 2 stops before getting off to wait for the Downtown Disney bus. I asked the bus driver. The bus driver said that’s why other people got out of line for the Coronado Springs bus and got in line for a different bus.

I never did find out which hotel would be the best.

It's like planning a flight - you want to go from Animal Kingdom Park to Downtown Disney with just one stop and a short layover. You don't want multiple stops. But you also don't want each leg of the trip to be too long just to avoid the multiple stops.
