Forgive me if these things have been asked before, but we're in the less than a month making sure all our ducks are in a row frenzy...

We're trying to decide whether to order from Garden Grocer...we're taking ME, so no grocery stop, and don't really want to take the time to take a cab somewhere once we get there...

Main essential is water- we go through a lot of it, and it's so expensive in the parks. Do they have any bigger bottles of water in the Marketplace, and if so is there an actual savings over the smaller bottles?

We sometimes order breakfast stuff (and would pretty much have to, to get to the minimum order!)- do all the rooms have a fridge, for putting milk and stuff in?And if so, what's kind of capacity?

Thanks!

Oh and earlier in the day we could hear the summer concert series from the American pavilion clear as day from our balcony

Johnny Depp is currently focusing all his attention on me
Tell him I'll see him on the 13th! Is Johnny Depp the big surprise guest at the meet on Sunday?

Here's my water in the parks tip.....go to any place that sells fountain pop and ask for a cup of ice water. It's free! It will also save you from lugging around heavy bottles of water around the park.

All rooms at YC/BC have fridges. They are small-ish but a half gallon of milk will fit. Cans of pop fit as do leftover desserts (which incidentally make a wonderful breakfast!),

I can't imagine it would ever be less expensive at the Marketplace!

I've heard Teena mention that some walk to the Hess station not far from BWI for water, but if you're into getting some breakfast munchies, then I say go for GG. And yes, all rooms at BC have a fridge, but here's a tip. I truly don't remember where, but on one of our trips to WDW, we filled the fridge....went into it the next day.....and realized that housekeeping had for some reason unplugged it, thus we lost all our food.

I have seen several people come down with shoes in hand, so my unofficial answer would be probably not. However, much of the pavement that you are crossing is shaded, and there are so many wet people crossing, the pavement is wet as well. My girls (and I) have done fine without water shoes. I am going down to pool in a bit, and I will try to find an official answer.

On to other news...We watched 4th of July Epcot fireworks from within the park. It was fabulous, but very, very busy.

We did the Wishes dessert party on Wednesday night. Saw Teena and Robyn's family. We had a wonderful front row table to enjoy the castle while eating sweets, and then stood on the railing to see the fireworks. Like Teena said, it was WET!

Gonna wing it for dinner tonight...I'm taking a day off from parks, although my DH is at HS with girls. Just got pics with Wreck it Ralph and Incredibles.

Tomorrow is our last day

I am frantically searching for airfare now! There may not be availability at the resort but I am perfectly willing to install an inflatable mattress in the laundry room if that's what it takes!

Thank you also to those of you who are posting live reports and sharing your trips! Those of us who are missing "Home" and those of us looking forward to upcoming trips really appreciate a little taste of a Disney vacation!

This is what I do too, and I have a Mio that I use too.

I may have mentioned Sorin has opened here, called Fly over Canada! So excited. Last night I just bought tix for all of us for daughters birthday at the end if the month. Did I mentioned I'm really excited?
Her birthday is a week before we leave for Florida!

I really don't want to wish July away, cause I love summer and don't want it to move fast, but on the other hand, I can't wait till our trip!! But then when it gets close, I already start to worry that soon it will be over I think I need help!
