    I'm hoping we'll get to play Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom when we go in March! That makes an entire new set of cards I want to collect!!

    Hey guys! I'm definitely a commando. It's nice to see a group of others like me here on the boards! :thumbsup2 My friends and family are always teasing me about my constant planning for Disney, but they always seem to have the best time following my directions! I'm going to attempt to do all 4 parks in 24 hours on leap day. Check out my Pre trip report plans here and feel free to comment or add any ideas. :goodvibes

    :welcome: You are member #183 :cool1: I would really love to be at WDW on leap day:banana: The one thing I'm not clear on, are all the parks open 24hrs or just MK:confused3

    The last day of our trip last year we did the 4 park 1 day thing, There were no EMH at night that day so we did it between 8am - 10pm, We spent about 2 1/2 hours in each park, had certain things planned, even hit DTD and stopped back to the room quick in that time:eek: I do have to say it was the best day we ever had in the parks, we hit all the main things, I was in 2 shows, & completed
    finding all Transportation Cards that were available:woohoo:

    You should have a blast with the extra time:yay: I'll have to check out your PTR:thumbsup2

    Just MK, so I figured we'd hit up the other parks during the day and then do MK all night:0) But it would be really special if ALL the parks were!

    Wow! That is amazing! :worship: You really know how to get things done!

    Yep! They are doing beta testing and a small amount of people have been able to try it out but last I read by searching online is that it is set to debut Feb 22nd. I couldn't figure out the site that had pictures of several of the cards but here's a different site I just found: http://www.insidethemagic.net/2012/...neer-offers-closer-look-at-role-playing-game/

    ETA: Found a site that has a checklist for the cards for Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom! http://destinationvinylmation.com/2012/01/sorcerers-of-the-kingdom-cards-checklist/

    Wow 70 cards:scared1:, And they give you 5 cards, Now that's a challenge trying to score all those:eek: I'm sure you will try it a few times, even if it's just to get the cards:confused3, maybe later in the year we can start something for anyone who has dups can make a trade:confused3 Best of Luck getting as many cards as you can, looks like you are our guinea pig on this one:thumbsup2


    That was pretty cool, BUT it kinda seemed like a waste of time since she really didn't do much at the parks:confused3, now the flight was kinda like a time warp since Cali has a big time difference, so she gained a lot of time, It was cool but I think it wasn't planned out that well:confused3

    Yay a bunch of commandos. My husband thinks I'm crazy, but he does enjoy the results.

    My only confession - we don't always make the rope drop, but that's only b/c we are already eating breakfast inside the park before it happens.:thumbsup2 or we were at the MK until 3am the night before:eek:

    I am in the preplanning stage right now. Have done hotel, days at which parks, waiting for ADR window. Trying to adjust for the new FP rules. :sad2:

    We will definitely be working in the Sorcerer's game. My son has already watched the video and having done KP missions a bunch, he really wants to do this. Of course, he wants to be Finn the Kingdom Keeper too, but that's another story.

    :welcome: You are member #184 :cool1: If your out till 3am missing a rope drop is totally understandable since you more then made up for it, IMO the later it gets the more guests go back to the resort, and you pretty much just walk on everything:woohoo:

    As for the Sorcerer's game, I'm glad that Shandale will be one of the 1st if not the 1st Commando member to do it, I can't wait to hear her insight and any tips she might have about it:thumbsup2

    Hi everyone. What a great club! We have always thought of ourselves as park commandos because we love to spend a lot of time in the parks and really enjoy staying in the MK after midnight. We confirmed we were commandos when our touring plan did our family in on a trip we took on 2010. We were only taking a short weekend trip that allowed for only one day in the parks. By 6:00 pm on the first day at Disney my husbands family went back to the hotel for the night due to exhaustion and chaffing. :scared1: We could not comprehend calling it quits on our one and only day to visit the parks! So my hubby and kids and I headed back to the park and stayed until 2:00am. Headed back to the hotel for showers and a 1 hour nap as we had to be at the airport by 5:00 am. :rolleyes1 My in laws still think we are Disney crazy. :laughing: I think they are crazy, they couldnt even hack it for one day! :lmao:

    I promise to make one as soon as my ADR window opens. I wouldn't want to make one, change it, change it again, and again and again and scare all the nice people.:eek:
