    Once while eating at the SiFi on the DP we told the waitess that we were too full for our deserts and she suggested we offer them to the family accross from us, we did and then did the same at several TS meals.

    We used to take our extra CS desserts (still wrapped) and quietly ask the parents at another table if they and their kids would like them.

    When did Universal start charging for their tap water. I went last year and they never charged me. Is this something new?

    Yes, people never get drunk at (or before going to) the parks. :sad2:
    My thoughts precisely.

    We met Aurora in France and there was NO ONE else around.

    Also, we were entering Epcot one morning and everyone was lined up a dozen or more deep at the center turnstiles. The far right one to the right was empty. We went over to it and the CM remarked that he loves the mob mentality!

    Same with us! They were so happy to see us! :laughing: She is a bit tucked away in the garden.

    We also saw Snow White with a small line just before.

    Unfortunately, we just missed Mary P in the UK. :sad1:

    "...and it's good training for my kids..." :thumbsup2

    BRAVO, BRAVO -- APPLAUSE, APPLAUSE!!! I'm giving you a great big standing ovation, Erinch!

    The world would be a better place if more parents took the time you do to think about how their actions affect their children. While your kids may not know now what you're doing for them, some of your fellow parents in the world do...and we applaud you. :flower3:

    Actually you are...one turns opposite of the other....if you are on the left you turn one way if you are on the right you turn the other way....thas in itself makes it a different ride....It feels different to turn a different way....

    Just my opinion

    HALLELUJAH!!! I can't wait to meet her. I get so picked on about this at home, but I've loved Sleeping Beauty since I was 3 and saw it for the first time :):)

    It was 3pm or a little before.

    We left Epcot at 3:30pm, so it was just before. Ask any CM when th characters will be out. :goodvibes

    Is that the tree with all the big fruit/pod type things hanging down? I have always wondered what that tree is. It is really cool.

    Not a CM, but my best tip (especially for a week like Easter). Always arrive before the parks open so that you are one of the first ones in the park.

    At MK, if you have children that want to do the attractions in Fantasyland, ALWAYS go straight there. Have one parent take the children on Dumbo and/or the Carousel, while the other parent goes and gets Fastpasses for Winnie the Pooh.

    At Epcot, most of the party waits by the fountain while one person goes and gets Fastpasses for Soarin. After that person comes back, go and ride Test Track. After riding Test Track it may or may not be time for Soaring. If not, you can do Imagination or Living with the Land while you are waiting.

    Not a cast member, but right spot at the right time tip... We were hanging out in France in Epcot charging up the camcorder in a little area behind the bookstore. Its like a dead end/courtyard area with a privacy fence. We didn't know that it was where characters came in and out! One of the Masquerade people came back there and played with DD5 before he went to change or whatever. THEN!!! Belle and the Beast came out!!! They played with DD before they went into the bookstore and we got some great pics. The CM/handler asked if she wanted to walk into the store for the character meeting. She proudly escorted Beast in on his arm and Belle next to her. Got a free 5x7 pic, too! princess:

    I don't remember what time we saw Aurora, but it was in the afternoon sometime. I made my son, who was almost 9, have his pic taken with her. She told him to act like he was drawing his sword. I'm surprised he did it!

    Good luck, I hope you see her!
