Quick question. We arrive Nov 17th and I know the Christmas decorations will be up in MK due to the parties but will the Osborne lights in HS & decorations in EPCOT be up yet?

I've been told the Osborne lights are scheduled to be up by Nov. 8th. . We arrive the 16th so I was wondering about that too!

I wouldn't give up hope quite yet - she could easily grow another 1/2 inch in the next three months, and most children's shoes will add an inch.

One year, we made a "Disney Stick" for our son with the top bar at 40" - a one by two from Home Depot with the top bar screwed at the 40" mark so it looked like an upside down L

Every morning, he would practice standing up straight trying to get the top of his head to hit the stick.

By the time we got to DW, he could do what the CM's called a "Head Butt" - the top of his head would just touch the measure bar and they'd let him thru.

Make sure you ask about rider swap. It acts like a fast pass so that let's say your husband took the boys on the ride first, you would then use the Rider swap to go on afterwards and it's good for up to three people so the boys could conceivably go again. My oldest LOVED that when our youngest was too young to ride :-)

they have a ride share type thing where both parents can ride 1 at a time without having to wait in line again. Plus the boys will get to ride twice. I'm pretty sure that's how it works. I've never used it so maybe someone on here can tell me if I've got the right idea.

Your dining reservations aren't connected to your room reservations. You will not lose them.

However don't forget that if they are JUST tall enough that depending on the individual CM and measuring stick sometimes they will qualify and sometimes they won't, even on the same ride. Prepare them for the what ifs. There have been lots of threads of "my kid measured 40 at home but not at Disney" or "one CM let him go with just touching the bar but another said he had to be above the line".

How does this work? We will DEF be needing this! My DS4 is JUST at the 42" mark so he will be able to ride just about everything but my DS2 will miss out on a lot! From what I read almost all the rides offer Rider Swap now, but how do you use it? Do you tell the CM at the ride who loads everyone? Also, my oldest will be able to ride twice? Once with the first parent and again with the second parent?

Does Disney have an offical measuring station? At a local park here they have a measuring station for kids with "close calls" where the park will make an "official" call on their hieght and give them a bracelet to wear showing other ride operators what the official ruling was. Worked great!

My husband is a police officer too so I get exactly what you are saying. He has never had a problem with taking her out of school, it has always been my hang up, but this year I decided what the heck and we are going! Can't wait!

Got in yesterday afternoon and have a prescription eye drop...no work again for me today or tomorrow. I wasn't too happy about waiting, they are closed on Fridays and when I called Monday the soonest I could get in was Wednesday! Never offered to call anything in for me either...had to be seen to be sure that is what it was. Thankfully I think it is almost gone but she told me I have to throw my contact lenses away!! So there is an unexpected expense.

Here's Disney's policy

That would be nice if Disney had that Typically they measure before you enter the queue and just before getting on the ride. We have never had an issue, but some folks have reported they were allowed in the line, but then denied at the ride for not meeting height requirements. There is some inconsistency.
