    JennaDeeDooDah My oh my what a wonderful day!

    Loved reading these! Learned some new stuff and got the warm and fuzzies being reminded of others. One comment I wanted to make about number 30, though. I, too, prefer the front or middle, but my husband is ridiculously tall (6'8") and he needs some leg room. On Space Mountain, the front seat has the least amount of leg room and the back row has the most. He is terribly uncomfortable in the front or middle row.

    I do disagree about Akershus. My absolutely favorite character dining experience.:goodvibes

    Loved your post! Wish I had the $$ to stay at Beach Club but we are going in early October with (likely) no discounts at all and the BC is filled for our dates anyway! WOW. Hope to try it someday.

    I'm going to use your tip for the stairs at Soarin'!

    Had to comment on this though:

    Don't know how it works at WDW, but I worked at a buffet as a teen as well as a full-service restaurant. I worked equally hard at both because at the buffet, we bussed all our own tables and omg do people make a mess when they eat at a buffet. I also did everything else full-service including keeping drinks topped off, bringing anything extra needed, and handling checks/money.. really the only thing I did differently was NOT bring a plate of food (and that was offset but not having a busser!). Not to mention at the full-service place I worked at, we often had food runners so I didn't bring the food anyway. Most importantly, I still also made only $2.13/hr at the buffet and was dependent on my tips!

    I hear people complain about tipping at buffets so often and I just hadta throw that out there!

    My husband is tall also...6'5"...he is scared on SM....loves coasters but I don't know if it's the dark or what...thinks he is going to hit his head the whole time and spends the majority of the ride ducking! LOL Does your husband get that? One time we rode TTA and Space was down and totally lit inside. We rode through it in the light on TTA...he is even more nervous after seeing it in the light! LOL

    OP...awesome post! It looks like you had a wonderful time and made plenty of memories! Great for you and your family! I love reading these...whether we know any, all or none of these tidbits, it's fun to hear someone else's take on things! Keeps me going til my return! So, again, thank you for that! Also, the middle of the row thing...that annoys me and I will be using your tip this fall! Your writing is fun...would love to see a full trip report if you do one!

    I agree that 18% tips for large groups is way too much. It is just totally discouraging for people trying to do a reunion at WDW. Their food is already over-priced. It really kills the magic having to out 18% on top.

    I loved your tips... it didn't matter if I knew some of them... it was the way you wrote them... very entertaining to read. Thanks... I giggled on a few of them.

    My DH has tried to do this...his thought is I lined up first I shouldn't be stuck with the crappy end seat. It always embarrasses me so I have convinced him to at least let people in front of him when lining up to position himself closer to a middle section and this was our happy median. Good grief!

    I, and most other people I know who have tried it, disagree with you, the frozen is much better.
