    Thanks for all of the fun tips! We leave in 30 days and this made me smile and even more excited for our trip if that's possible. SO looking forward to staying at an Epcot resort and being able to walk to the park. Epcot is mine and DH's favorite park so we are super excited. Sounds like you had a wonderful trip!

    THANKS for taking the time to write this out. I loved reading all the tips. This thread actually kept my attention. Most do not.

    Aww, this makes me want to stay at BC! Maybe if DH and I ever take that couples' trip.

    We did not spend enough time appreciating Epcot last time because I was hell-bent on listening to as many storytellers as I could. Major mistake.

    Love the tip on R&C.

    Was considering Narcoosee's as a back-up for CG. Is the food good, at least?

    Thanks for posting this! We have never been to EPCOT but will be there in less than 2 weeks. Will a newbie get lost following these directions?

    I have to agree that the people who just plop in the middle of the theater while the CM's are trying to fill the seats in order drive me nuts.

    Loved your post and I agree wholeheartedly about the tipping. Even 10% of the ridiculous prices they charge for buffet would be a gracious plenty of a tip for what the servers! One can certainly understand why some of them have been there for over 20 years!

    Except when you do it and your 19 and 16 year olds are selected by Ollivander! Granted we went early and there was minimal line...but they were both chosen (and yes we bought two wands) but it was great when the older kids get back into the magic of HP!

    One thing we learned was don't skip the line at HP and the FJ. We were in line, doo dee doo dee doo, and then there was a fire alarm. We had to get back out and when it was safe to go back we were waiting at the area where you go into line for my DH. A "cast member" asked what we were doing, and we explained and they said "Go in <this other way> and told them that <CM>" sent you. We thought "great! we get to skip the line (as we had already waited once before)"
    We went on that ride again later in the trip and went through the line...it was so awesome.
