How are you getting your boarding passes for the return trip home? That just occured to me. Will we be able to print them 24 hours in advance like we are for our flight TO MCO?

We arrive in the afternoon but our first FULL day we have a 7:05 am ADR for Chef Mickey
You can get the concierge desk at your resort to print your boarding pass for you. You just need your confirmation number for your ressie and they will take care of it for you!

You would think there is a little mouse running on a wheel to keep their server up and running!
I hope you make a miraculous recovery and will be snot free for your anniversary

Where's a like button when you need it! Besides, I'm sure no one is going to disappear until after we all know how Val likes her new job at the very least!

I know! The $81 for a balcony seat at the Fox for Book of Mormon is NUTZ, but sissy was threatening dragging me to NY next year just to see it, and that would have been WAY more expensive, so I didn't complain too much!

Still not sure how I'm going to sit through some parts of the show with Mom there, but I bet I'll manage somehow

I have a Nikon DSLR and an Olympus Tough shock and waterproof compact camera. I love the Olympus and it is about all I take on most trips anymore. Being able to take pics on Kali and Splash (not to mention underwater in pools and the ocean) is so much fun, and I don't have to worry about it if it rains or I drop it. The photo quality is not as good as the Nikon, but the prints even at a 16x20 size aren't grainy, so it's not too shabby at all in that respect.

Yes, you are right, it was SAT887! Yes, you must try it. I also saw the waitress bring out regular ice cream for someone, so if you hate it, I am sure she would bring you just ice cream. Lupa lupa is a "must do".

We will have wifi at the house, but I don't know about a printer. We can just print at the airport. That is what we are doing tomorrow, since my laptop that connects to my printer is already in FL with the in-laws.

Did you buy PhotoPass+? When are you going to turn in your voucher? I would like to have it for our Tusker House ADR, but I don't know if the shop in AK will be open by 8:20.

We borrowed my Brother-in-law's Olympus Tough this summer when we went to WDW. It was great on all the wet rides and in the rain. We were able to get a really cool video of the big drop on Splash Mountain. We were sitting behind the kids so we were able to get their reactions.

Unfortunately, my lovely DH lost it while we were in the lazy river at Blizzard Beach. He set it in his lap and then 10 or 15 minutes later asked me to pass him the camera so he could take some pics... I said: "Ummm, honey... YOU have the camera". We ditched the tubes and walked the river 3 times, no camera. Someone must have picked it up right after he dropped it. Not a good day. Needless to say, no one turned it in and it never made its way to Lost & Found...

Sorry for the tangent - but it really is a great camera!!!!

The sx260 is actually the one I have been leaning towards. How does it do in low light?

I looked around after!!! I noticed Jamie too! I needed to sit down and chill out though too... We waited a while and my kids wore me down- especially after my DH was absent for golf this morning.... So I have about 70 pages to catch up on... Eeek!

This may have already been answered but I'm not caught up on today's posts...
A hair wrap is the colored threads wrapped around a small section of hair. You can get one at DHS near pizza planet, at AK near where Stitch is (and DVC). Some of the resorts have someone available to do them also
