My husband and I went to WDW in January 2007 and found that I filled my camera to the point that the camera would turn itself off before my laptop could download all the pictures. We popped into the Kodak Kiosk in MK and talked to a CM about DLing our pictures onto a CD. The Kiosk machine was crazy expensive, (12.00 per CD and only 100 pictures per CD), the CM mentioned she had another machine behind the desk she could try cause you could get more on the CD for the same price. We had over 300 pictures and was able to get all the pictures on 1 CD with her help and it cost us the 12.00 dollars for the one cd instead of 36 for 3.

My other tip is to keep a small pack of Post it notes in your day pack to cover the little "eye" on the automatic Toilets. It has scared my niece when it would flush when she is still sitting on the seat. With the post it over the eye, it won't flush til you remove the paper. It has saved a few clothing changes when we've incountered these toilets in shopping malls in our home town.

When being chased by a bear, you don't have to outrun the bear. You just have to outrun the other guy.

Where are these kiosks? Is there at least one in each park, and if so, where? So you know whether there are any in any of the resorts as well? I really don't know the capacity of my camera but I don't want to find out the hard way that I don't have enough room for everything I want to take pictures of!

As always, thanks!!

The one in MK is in the first building on the right after you pass under the rail tracks when you enter the park. I can't remember what it is called now, but it is a Kodak Shop right inside the park. I believe that all the parks have a Kodak shop, though can't confirm that at this time.

Ironically, we don't have the problem with the eye on automatic toilets, but with the eye on the faucets. For some reason, most of them don't register well for my boys, so they needed assistance with water. We use a paper towel to block the sensor (i.e. make it go off), so the boys could wash their hands by themselves.

My advice is to just buy a memory card or two ahead of time. On my 4.1 MP camera, I just got a 1GB memory card. I can take 1300 pictures with it. The memory cards are cheap (the 1GB was $25 or so), and can be used over and over.

The best tip I used from the Disboards was to bring Ziploc bags. We used them for our wet bathing suits at typhoon lagoon, and I put my camera in one there so I could take pics of the kids on the waterslides. But it came in most helpful when my son started throwing up while we waited for the bus at the hotel. I was soooo grateful we weren't on the bus already.

Second I think would be to buy extra memory cards for my camera, and the rechargeable batteries. I always carried extra batteries, but the rechargeables usually lasted all day. I took over 600 pics, and it was nice not to have to go through them every night and delete them to make more memory card room.

The last week in November and the first of December Meijer, Wal-mart and Staples seem to have a compitition on who can make there SD cards cheaper. We got 2GB cards for $12 at Wal-mart. I filled up one of them at Disney World and part of another.

They make really awesome Christmas presents for those with digital cameras too!

Hi Lynn~
Was it a lot of money to get hair done, I don't think we'll need a hair cut at the time, but will want to do Princess style , and I'm leery about taking dd7 in there not knowing what to expect and then for her to be upset because I might think it's to exspensive.

Staying at POP...got in on fridge/coffee maker swap

Staying on site...got 40% off POP,

Biggest question...park Hopper, or not.

KKB~
How did you save 40% off of staying at Pop Centry? When is your trip? And yes on the Park Hopper! Also suggest if your doing the dining plan you need the park hopper in order to go from one park to the other to get to your priority seeting resturant if it's not on the same property your going to that day then you won't be able to get to it. I had to figure this out myself, the Disney people don't always tell you everything in detail about how things work, most of the time they do, but this is one thing they didn't. I love Disney and everything about it, not putting it down. Thank The Lord above we had already gotten the hopper. It also it gives you the chance to go from one place to another, if that's what you think you might do then you'll need it.

I don't think the Main Street Barber shop does styles, just haircuts. My hubby and DD5 got theirs cut and had red hair gel with "pixie dust" confetti put in. I think it was around 12-15 each. If you want a real princess style, you will want to go to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Downtown Disney Marketplace. The cheapest is $35 for hairstyle and makeup. Check out the thread below, it has great pictures and tons of info.

Not missing a beat, the CM replied, "yes, Ma'am!" and acted like he was putting in a call to Mickey. DH and DD took the luggage to the room, and I went back out to the car for the gift bag and let the CM know that we'd be right back to get it. As we left for the park, I persuaded DD to check back in with the CM, and she was SHOCKED to get a package from Mickey with her name on it written in "Mickey's" handwriting (Disney font!)

I hope this helps someone looking to make even more magic at the most wonderful place on earth.

Oh yeah, almost forgot the most important tip. Its been said already, but needs to be said over and over. Take time to sit and enjoy and drink in everything!
Kelly~ I loved your post!!!! Great ideas! How did you get to the Mickey font to print out on a bag? Oh, what would you suggest for my dd7 (about to be 8) for a gift bag from Mickey? Or maybe because she LOVES Peter Pan and Tinker Bell I could make a bag with fairy dust! "Here's a little Pixie Dust to start your magical stay here in WDW"!

I think mine would be to make an early ADR for either CP or CRT so you can experience the park before opening. We were at WDW 3/17-3/25 and during the day it was NUTS! So the early AM times with no one around was super special! We were done eating by 8:45 and waited for the rope drop at 9 and were the first ones on Haunted Mansion. There were 6 of us total on the ride!

Also, make a late AM ADR for CM's at CR (11:10 for us). Do the parks early, then head out for "brunch". The crowds there are low and character interaction was AWESOME!!!

A couple of months ago codes were sent out to people to get 40% off...so we booked the last week in Oct. I think each of our 2 rooms is $75 w/ taxes. (Mom is coming & there are 5 of us besides, so needed 2 rooms...)
Really wanted AKL as DS7 is an animal FREAK, but couldn't justify $1500 more!

I was NOT going to do DDP...but I realize for not a lot more $ we can REALLY enjoy our dining experiences & not worry about prices to be frugal. Plus I think a TS each day will force us to slow down & take a break!
I am thinking the hopper would really make things easier. Again, just so there are no worries...we can go where we want when we want!
