    Wow your dairy in the US must be so cheap! Here in Canada a 1/2 gallon at the supermarket is $5! Btw I had to Google how many litres a half gallon was ;)

    I'll gladly pay $3.19

    WOW!!! That's crazy. I'd go broke on buying just milk. We go through 2 gallons a week.

    For those of you that bring your beer, wine, or booze with you, how have you packed it if you are flying?

    I'm going to but haven't yet. I'm going to put it in my luggage between clothes so its cushioned. And hope it doesn't break. I'm going to see if the bottle will fit in a gallon ziplock bag too just in case. But I'm interested too to see if there's any other ideas.

    I'm guessing that you are thinking about a gallon. , not a 1/2 gallon. A 4L bag (just over a gallon) in my area (southern Ontario) is right around $4 (up to closer to $5 at Metro, Zehrs, etc). Although - buying a 2L carton is almost the same price, so I guess it's all about how you buy it.

    Bubble Wrap. I haven't flown with alcohol to WDW, but have to other destinations and needed to take a particular Michigan wine (don't laugh -- it's very good!) to a friend. Bubble wrap in a huge ziploc bag was the answer. It was in the middle of my checked bag amongst my clothing. Depending on how many bottles you're taking, watch the weight of your bag. (I just flew from Vancouver and I couldn't believe how many people had bags that weighed more than 50 pounds. Then they were repacking at the counter, holding up the lines. It was ridiculous.)

    Now, when we go to WDW, I order from Garden Grocer or stop by Hess. A bit more expensive but worth the convenience!

    Nope, 1/2 gallon (2 litres). Yes I do get the carton, and you're right the bags are better value but we don't go through enough and would lose it. A 2 litre carton at Loblaws is $4.79 and never goes on sale.

    I read today various comments about resort door decorating....is it allowed at POP or frowned upon by staff and other guests...I am aware of making sure there is no damage when decorating windows(I' m bringing along suction cups for my window decorations),but I am unsure about doors.....I had been searching sites such as ebay for magnetic mickey ears but they all state that these are for cruise ship stateroom doors only.
    If decorating doors is allowed at POP, does anyone know if the exterior doors are magnetic and where I could find exterior mickey ears to stick to the door.....another idea is a door wreath hanger, but once again I'm not sure if that would fit and allow the door to close properly.

    Any help greatly appreciated :yay:

    I always decorate our window at Pop ( I use suction cups too) and yes, the door is perfect for magnets.

    It sounds like you don't have a car (which is the simplest way to move); a taxi is second easiest. For that, if you have another adult and kids, you might want to consider having one adult and maybe an older child take the taxi and bags to pop to check in and drop the bags. The other adult and kids can just head to a park. Then everyone can meet up later. Otherwise, WDW makes it pretty easy. You can leave your bags with CSR and ask to have them transferred to Pop. You should do that early in the day. Don't expect your bags to arrive at pop until late (5:00ish). Then, you can take a bus to whatever park you want and transfer to a pop bus to go check in.
