    Hi. My DD is always cold and had one of those North Face fleece (thin one) sweaters with her all the time. Once or twice it was chilly at night -- nothing that a light jacket wouldn't fix. But we were moving around alot -- if you are going to sit for an hour or two to watch the parade & fireworks, I would definitely bring a jacket. It was pleasantly warm, but not hot or humid while we were there. Perfect for us, since we run around alot and the heat and humidity really slow us down.:)

    Weird thing -- when we left home it was 60 degrees and rainy. It's supposed to be 90 today!:scared1: Really unusual for us, especially since it's warmer than Florida!:rotfl:

    Thanks taylor3297 & lissiesmom for the information about Pop Werner Football at WDW. That is what I was hoping but it is good to have it confirmed.

    Carlix30, taylor3297 is correct - UG stand for Unofficial Guide.

    HI everyone, I have a question for those of you who have been to MNSSHP, I hope someone can help! I know the tickets go on sale May 1st, but the park hours for September won't be posted until June. Do I need to buy the tickets right away, or can I wait until June when I can plan my whole week? I'm thinking they won't sell out right away, especially for September. What do you think? Thanks!!!!:flower3:

    I'll be there with my husband, son (6), and daughter (5) on Friday for a week - I'm so excited! We will be by the pool every afternoon and I'm the girl with the tiger tatto on the upper left part of my arm - and the one sipping yummy poolside drinks :rotfl: I hope to say 'hi' to everyone that will be there!!

    Several people have responded about the Disney Crocs but I wanted to add my two cents :) They sell them just about everywhere! I don't usually like Crocs (and yes, I live just miles away from where they were created and have their company) but the Disney crocs are super-cute and I noticed they fit my daughter better (more snugly) than regular crocs. I especially like the ankle strap that you can use on it so I'm not as worried about here tripping or walking right out of the shoe!

    Welcome back EVERYONE!!! Sounds like everyone had a magical vacation :)

    We've gone this time of year for the past few years and usually you don't need warmer clothing BUT if you are going to hang out on the beach at night, have a light jacket or if you go to really late hours at MK - definitely bring a jacket! We love the 12 - 3 am hours at MK but you do get a bit chilly. I've only brought capris for longer pants and have been fine. I am thinking of wearing jeans on the plane this time but I doubt I'll even where them when I am there - but I might put the capris on for 12 - 3 am hours!!

    Thanks so much for the "hope for an upgrade"! We booked on the last day of the buy4/get 3 and the CM I booked with said they had many LV still open. At full rack rate now, I hope it's a possibillty!

    I did mention the anniversary when I booked (I think I was a bit gushy about it too :laughing:) so they know it's a special one. I plan on booking a gift package from Disney Florist as well so I hope they really get the hint :thumbsup2 . Thanks for the tips!

    Keep my fingers crossed!

    To those just getting home... Welcome back!
    For those on their way Have a great time!


    Does anyone have any experience using the Itouch at the Poly or at the parks? I wonder how the reception is. I do not have the Iphone, which I think would work better:confused3

    I am so excited for my Trip in August... I can't wait for it to get here but booking it that late has a downside too.... it means the end of Summer!
    I can't wait for my trip but I don't want to rush through the summer either... KWIM? :hippie:

    Although it wasn't in the 80s when we were there, I will say that that wind at night was rather chilly if you were hanging out on the Poly beach. I'd recommend something warm to wear if the wind kicks up while you are there. We were unprepared and had to all buy hoodies at WDW.

    Sorry to go off topic but...
    Have you taken the auto-train before? I am just curious of your experience and how you pass the time. I have looked into it occasionally but could never get my head wrapped around sitting in those seats for 20 hours (even if you can get up and walk around).:scared1:

    Thanks

    I was looking at the FAQ, the picture of the bathroom shows a hair dryer on the counter top.

    Does the rooms at the Poly include hair dryers? My very soon to be wife would like to know. If she doesn't have to pack her's that's less in her suitcase.

    Yes there are hairdryers in the rooms. If you look back a couple of pages, you can even see a close up of the dryer. :rotfl2:

    congrats on your upcoming wedding!!!!!!:goodvibes:goodvibes:goodvibes
