Aww, this makes me want to stay at BC! Maybe if DH and I ever take that couples' trip.

We did not spend enough time appreciating Epcot last time because I was hell-bent on listening to as many storytellers as I could. Major mistake.

Love the tip on R&C.

Was considering Narcoosee's as a back-up for CG. Is the food good, at least?

Thanks for posting this! We have never been to EPCOT but will be there in less than 2 weeks. Will a newbie get lost following these directions?

Awesome post! I have always wanted to stay at the Poly when I can afford a deluxe, but you may have just converted me.

I have to agree that the people who just plop in the middle of the theater while the CM's are trying to fill the seats in order drive me nuts.

Loved your post and I agree wholeheartedly about the tipping. Even 10% of the ridiculous prices they charge for buffet would be a gracious plenty of a tip for what the servers! One can certainly understand why some of them have been there for over 20 years!

24b) And really listen to me: Skip the Wand thing at Ollivanders (sic), or whatever the heck it's called. Absolutely wasted an hour of my life from 9:00-10:00pm in a line that snails along, and then your in a little room for what seems like 2 minutes to hear an old guy talking about...whatever the heck he was talking about..and then it's over, and then they have the gall to usher you through a shop to buy these wands for $30. Yikes...stay far, far away from this. If you don't you will only say afterwards "I should have listened to redc !!
Except when you do it and your 19 and 16 year olds are selected by Ollivander! Granted we went early and there was minimal line...but they were both chosen (and yes we bought two wands) but it was great when the older kids get back into the magic of HP!

One thing we learned was don't skip the line at HP and the FJ. We were in line, doo dee doo dee doo, and then there was a fire alarm. We had to get back out and when it was safe to go back we were waiting at the area where you go into line for my DH. A "cast member" asked what we were doing, and we explained and they said "Go in <this other way> and told them that <CM>" sent you. We thought "great! we get to skip the line (as we had already waited once before)"
We went on that ride again later in the trip and went through the line...it was so awesome.
...From Day 1 to the End! RIP VMK

Thank you OP!! This was very entertaining, and I especially like #28.

We hope to have just as much fun on our trip!
