Question to all: What are the pros for those who have got before. I know about it but would you say it was worth the $?
Last year I got the basic Photo CD and a Photo book. I found it to be worth it for us to get the photos only thing was my DD did not appreciate spending valuable park time posing for photos every 15 feet as we entered every park and during Wishes. When asked if she liked Wishes or our local Canada Day fireworks better she said she never saw wishes because all she did was pose for pictures. This year we won't stop at every one but I do plan to hit the main ones. The ones that I liked the most were at the water parks. They seamed to be everywhere and my DD didn't feel like her time was being wasted. As far as the Photo book goes I just love it and it was free as part of the package we got last year. This year I think I will go elsewhere and order a photo book for a lot less cash.

QOTD #1 No, I don't use a TA. I just book everything myself with my long distance plan I can call anywhere in Canada and the US for one low monthly price so basically calling Orlando cost me the same as calling across the street. I have also read to many stories on these boards of Disers not receiving their Mickey Mail until the very last minute from their TA.

QOTD #2 A Disney phone ring tone on my cell phone? I don't even own a cell phone. I spend 12 hours a day at work and the other 12 at home if I'm not at one try me at the other therefor I don't need a cell phone. I do have a ton of Disney music and podcasts on my iPod.

I leave in 2 weeks from tomorrow 11:30 am flight from philly.

Thanks for the new thread.
I had and am still having issues! I switched from ASMu to CSR a while back and the girl said the ME tags had not been mailed. When I got them, they still said ASMu. I called and was told to just use a black marker to block out the resort name and they would go by the bar code.

Now, I just added a day. I did the room before the flight. The first CM I talked to said I needed to call back with flight info to talk to ME and to them. She gave me the 800 number to ME but said that I need to update it through them too so it may be easier to just call them (they could talk to ME for me). When I called back, the ME updated it in their system but did not talk to ME. I asked him if I should call and he said it should automatically update. I asked about my tags since it says the wrong date and the wrong hotel now for the way home. He said I could talk to the new hotel when I check in. Does this sound right or should I call back? I don't want to wait until last minute and then have a whole ordeal that keeps us from our last day's festivities!!

TIA!!

We could start a FB group and post our trip photos and all to it. I post on another thread and we are all close and we have a FB group for sharing things we don't feel belong on the boards.

Hello follow August goers/obvious heat lovers!

Just found this new thread. The old one seemed like fun but I always felt like I was too late to join in (nothing to do with anyone else, just my own weird insecurities about popping in to conversations, lol). I'm just gonna jump into this one and hope I can keep up!

My dates: 8/25 - 8/30

My resort: Coronado Springs

My ADRs:
8/25: Wishes Dessert Party
8/26: LeCellier Steakhouse, 5:30pm
8/27: Cinderella's Royal Table, 8:30am
8/28: Kona, 8am
8/28: Liberty Tree Tavern, 5:30pm
8/29: Crystal Palace, 8:30am
8/29: Tutto Italia, 6:30pm

Other than when we have ADRs, our schedule is pretty much up in the air. After years of going commando style and planning every single minute we have decided to kind of leave a little of it open enough to go with the flow.

I seriously cannot wait for this trip! One of my closest friends is joining my mom and I this year. For the past twenty something years/trips it has just been my mom and I. So this year is going to have a bit of a different feel and dynamic to it. But I am sure it is going to be great!

As far as ringtones go: Mine is Good Life by oneRepublic which has made me think of Disney World since they started using it in their commercials (and did an adorable video for it set at MK).

I'd rather have time on our side.
I asked this on the transportation board but didn't get a response...do you think 5:30am is early enough for a 7:50am flight from LGA for 3 seasoned travelers who are traveling light? We're leaving from Tribeca, using Dial7 and flying JetBlue

I suppose I could ask my my SO but he's been so super busy with work and negotiating 2 job offers so we've had so many things to talk about other than Disney! And being in a temporarily long distance relationship,-we live 150 miles apart- we don't have as much talking time as we'd like. We'll be on vacation together in 12 days though and have oodles of time to talk about our next vacation...and other minor stuff, like finding a bigger apartment if he takes job #1 or moving across the country if he takes job #2! It's almost enough to distract me from my Disney planning. Almost.

So glad you joined us! LOVE that song and the video oneRepublic did! I've watched it every day this week! And you are right: Must love heat for August trips!

Congrats on all the exciting stuff going on!!! I like to leave 3 hours before my flight. That's my rule of thumb and has never done me wrong. LGA is a smaller airport, so I don't know how their security works. It may run slower because they will have less TSA staff, or quicker because there will be less passengers going through security. You should be fin, but I would probably leave at 5 just because I have OCD about being early and we also like to eat breakfast in the airport.
