I'll be there in August. I just hope the crowds are really low. This will be my first time going with one under three.

Just 7 Days and I will be in Disney. Still tweeking ADRs in fact I was lucky and picked up a 4:30pm ADR for Sci-Fi last night, Bob wanted to eat there but the only time I was able to snag previously was for 3:10pm and I have a 12:15 MM (Bob's request) He could eat Italian 3x a day so unfortunately no 50's this trip. I dropped my BOG in favor of keeping LTT, we have never ate at LTT and I just was not feeling the menu at BOG been there done that ya Know. I wanted to try lunch but since I could not make a FP for it not standing in a line for 45-60 minutes. I think this will be a good trip if I can just get everything done before I need to leave
It was a nice surprise. The inlaws won't let us leave the boys at home without getting their "approval to watch them". Which I don't understand since they don't have to actually watch them. We had less trouble getting date nights when they were in diapers than now. If we lived in our own house, we would have no problem leaving them home alone.

I don't blame you. I wouldn't want to stand in line that long for lunch either. Well, I might if I hadn't eaten there before and couldn't get a dinner ADR.

Crowds have been very manageable (except for our little jaunt over to check out F&W yesterday evening). Weather is gorgeous. Only just got hot enough to notice around 2pm. Here's Miss M's first meeting with the white rabbit:

That is it in a nutshell, since we did eat there last year and LTT will be new for us

It is amazing how much you can fit in a Heys I can fit in my 20" as much as I did in my old soft side 24" as for the lock I really did not bother to set it I just left it at the factory setting of 000 my past two trips.

Until this headache goes away, I think I may just watch The Walking Dead. While I was watching it, I didn't notice a head ache at all.

So I have a question about saving money for food expenses. How much should I save up? I know we are going to eat at Le Cellier, Yak & Yeti, and Crystal Palace, so those are easy to budget for. Since the people I am traveling with aren't sure what CS we will do, should I just budget $20 a meal that is non-TS?

MissPackingCube: Gorgeous! I have a feeling you're going to have a hard time picking just one for the Christmas card this year...I'd go with a collage

Good to hear that the crowds have been lower than last week. Will we be getting some BWI photos on the thread perhaps? Enjoy!
