I swear we must have some sort of appliance curse when traveling to Disney in November

2 years ago right before our last November trip my washer died and now my fridge has bit the dust

Granted it's 24 years old but the timing is very suspicious

Then last night our Fios stopped working..internet and TV. Repairman just left hoping no other surprises in the next 17 days

I am trying to find solutions to a possible rain day. I lived in S Florida so I know a full rain day is rare, but when it happens it reaaaaallly rains.

We plan on renting a locker for rain gear if the forcast calls for more than the usual 30% chance......

Do not fret, they will get it fixed, but be prepared to put aside an hour of your day to se it through. Tell the CM you want to give them your phone number in case you get disconnected, and stay on the line until it is fixed. Of they tell you it will take a day to do it. Ask for a supervisor, and tell them you want their name/number and a call back when its done.....sometimes you have to let them know your not going to walk away from the problem....

My DH is the only early riser. He is often up and out of the room at 5:30 am while the rest of us (try to) sleep. We get really cranky if he wakes us up. We have to come to an agreement every night about what is the earliest he is allowed to make noise the next morning. Our inlaws are coming with us this trip and I've already hinted that maybe he can sleep in their room a couple nights!!
It my DS that does this already at 11. He wakes by himself at 6-6:30 everyday. He has the sam rules not to wake his sister or me or wifey. Its better these day because he can make his own breakfast. When he was little man did it stink!

Oh man. I can't believe I didn't know this. We are arriving 11/11 and hope to attend the party that night (NOT using a park ticket that day). In my excitement to be able to do FP+ and not being sure which parks we'll be at on a given day, I booked 3 for our party day, knowing we 'd have regular park time from 4-7. I guess I need to cancel them. Don't want to use up 3 and have to go a full park day without later.

Anyone checking in today? Wondering if the October 27th rumor for not getting KTTW cards is true.

Love the shirts Xipotec, we will definitely look for you on the days we over lap. I plan to take pictures of whomever gets chosen as the Grand Marshall just in case they are a fellow DISer. I'd love to come to the rescue with pics of the event.

Oh no, I am so sorry. I would want to cry too, well actually I'd want to yell since I'm more a yeller than a crier, but I still empathize. Do you have a complicated reservation or something?

Yeah, me neither, best intentions and all, but I doubt we could pull it off. Besides, I love my mother-in-law, but she is not a smiler - AT ALL. My FIL, and middle guy are early risers, my youngest usually is but may be extra tired on this trip so who knows, my MIL, hubby and I can fake it without being cranky, but my oldest needs a bomb to go off to make him wake up.

I think if you link your party tickets to MDE you may be able to make the extra day of FP's, but make sure if you do that that you use the actual tickets to enter the park and not your MBs, sometimes the computers mess up and take a day off your regular park tickets instead of using the party tickets if you enter between 4-7. It can be fixed, but who wants to waste the time.

Yes!!! We arrive 1 week form today and this morning my CM friend was able to sprinkle some Pixie Dust on our vacation. We originally had a 40% Room Only F&F deal. This morning she was able to get us a 50% room and $46 person/day dining !! This saves me $500 !! Now Daddy (me) can stop sweating the budget.

So sorry. Forgot I mention on a pp that in the past 2 weeks, not only have my washer and dryer, and furnace needed to be replaced, but my extra refridgerator broke in my garage. I hadn't been out there in about a week so you could imagine the smell from the freezer that had at least 4 packages of rotting chicken in there.

Rain? I heard it never rains at WDW. Oh please. I'm so not up for another thing to plan. Instead of getting excited it's getting closer, I'm getting more tired. Tired of all the other things I have to do instead of focusing on my Disney plans. hmmmmmm

Nope not too early. It's more the combination needed. Especially getting there 2 hours earlier and being happy and excited in the process. There was a time when I would have been all over the tshirts, tiaras, 2 hours early and been very happy about it all.

Can you believe I had to just ask my husband if we were at day 19 yet? sigh
I obviously am losing it. I was only off by a day though so.......

Almost there.!!!

My 11 yo DS is the same way and ALWAYS has been. I was excited when he started sleeping past 5am. Now that he is older though he can occupy himself it just boggles the mind why he gets up that early

Canadians in the House (of Mouse)

No, not all fridges are back in. Building 5 seems to have them. Some random guests are getting them if they put in a request.

Wifi is apparently spotty all over WDW but within the parks mostly.

I don't have any insider tips other than with a young family, I'm a fan of the afternoon nap time. Works out well for us. We go back to same park or park hop later. We also extended our trip two days so we could add in two resort days where we can swim, tour and eat at other resorts.
Great -- thanks for the scoop on fridges. Sounds like this is a moving target...we'll see how things go when we arrive, and will request a fridge if need be.

Good tip on nap time. With DD5 and DS3, we're planning on building that into every day's schedule. I also like the 'resort days' idea. e paid for park access for all of our days there, since extra days come cheap on long stays. We may do a few half days and incorporate the resorts that way.

Getting chilly in Ottawa, and I hear they've had snow in Calgary. Can't wait for some Florida sunshine!
