I don't think the cost of the fridge woul;d be any cheaper than buying 2 kids breakfasts a day.
We also bring down granolas for fast breakfast, then load up on lunch.
Is there quiet a bit of food on the kids plates? I was worried if we do decide to get breakfast sometimes I would have to get adult meals even for the little ones.

Hope you have a great trip!!!!
WOW, I just browsed the garden grocer site and the prices are cheaper than what we would pay for things up here in Alaska. I was going to pack a suitcase with goodies, but I think now we will just place an order! Thanks for the link

I've only been to Pop, but I asume it's pretty much the same. Be DD and I often would share a CS kids breakfast. We didn't need alot, but some days it was just enough for us and even somedays we gave some of it to DH too. Again we did bring a few other items as well, like granolas for her. And some days we just went straight the park and ate an early lunch. Also there were times we saved dessert and at that later in the day or for breakfast the enxt day.

I've heard folks complain that they are expensive but they don't seem much more than prices here in MA so I'm not surprised to hear the prices are better than AK.

Does James eat much now? Won't you be able to use his credits? You will also have all adults credits except for your youngest. It really is a lot of food. I think you'd be able to share some credits at lunch and use them for breakfast.

At Pop last November my friend would use a CS credit for something like a bowl of oatmeal, piece of fruit and drink.

I know it has been said a lot already but I think you'll be very surprised by how much food you'll get on the QS DDP.

James still has his feeding tube, but we always try to entice him with ice cream and funny enough, he will eat lettuce! Sometimes even a cookie. I hadn't even thought about using James' credits. Plus were going to GKTW one day, and we'll eat there, so we have those credits too. I'm actually pretty excited about this!

There are elevators and accessible rooms. If I'm correct, the majority of the accessible rooms are king bed rooms.

I have booked a preferred section. Can anyone tell me which building is closest to the food court? I tend to use the refillable mugs quite a lot and would love to be as close as possible. (I know I am lazy, but the less people I have to encounter before I have had my morning coffee the better)

The three preferred sections are Toy Story, Fantasia, and 101 Dalmatians. Any of them could be really close to the food court, and some sections could be farther. If it is that important, you could put in a request to be close to the food court. I was in the back of Dalmatians, and it seemed really short to me, but then again, I'm not a coffee drinker!!!

Do all of the showers have the shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispensers? Just thinking that is 3 less things I have to pack if so.
