    "We will definitely be returning here. In fact, we're trying to get a lunch ressie for Friday before we fly out!"

    Barb,

    My sister and I will be at WDW July 30 - August 5. I am considering helping out if you need reporters for those dates.

    Could you possibly PM me with a few details about the process? I don't want to commit if I don't think I can fulfill my duties! :goodvibes

    Thanks,

    pennyplanner

    Hi pennyplanner!

    Check out the first post of the thread to see if that might answer your questions. If you still have any other questions, please feel free to send me a PM and I would be happy to answer them. I do have an iPhone, so if you also have an iPhone or iPad then sending your updates (pictures) by iMessage is quite easy and would have no effect on your phone data plan.

    One other factor regarding your trip dates is that I'm leaving on a non-Disney vacation on Aug. 3rd. I will be taking updates (and posting them to the thread) through Aug. 2 and then Rachel (rachel09985) has graciously agreed to take over the live thread while I'm gone. So if you decide to be a live reporter for us (and I hope you do :thumbsup2 ), you will first report to me and then either switch over to Rachel for the last three days of your trip or conclude your reporting on the 2nd.
