Thanks for the correction. I have made it in Post 39 page 3 and the last post I made. I am far from perfect but it is what I work toward!!! Progress not perfection is a saying i attempt to live by. Lois

No one is perfect.

Perfection is boring

I kinda wish it was my first time though. I'd like to rediscover it again. But i discovered it the first time at age 2

Perfect would be very boring but I still try my best and believe that trying repeatly is what makes us all winners.

I have found that if I watch the kids (everyone's kids) I can rediscover the parks each time I go. I see them through the awe of the little ones. I have also seen things that I have missed in the past. To see a kids face light up at first sight of a character just lights up my heart. I am traveling with kids this trip but they are 13 and 15 so you bet I will be watching the little ones as we go by or stand in line.

Most important the parks allow me to feel like a kid again and let go of the stress of day to day life. I just wish we could be maling our ADR but alas we must wait not one, not two but three more months than we expected. Now back to trying to figure out what I can do to cut the cost to save more to spend at WDW!!!! Lois

What time does MK typically open/close in the summer?
If I make an ADR for 7 or 8pm at a resort restaurant do you think that gives me enough time to go back to MK and watch wishes?
I wish I didn't have to wait another 3 months to make ADRs but now it gives me an excuse to plan even more.

I found last years hours posted on the Dis web site nd it seems it is open until at least 11PM most nights but who know what they will do this year. If attendance is down they may close earlier to save money. If you fo to DIS Home and then click on hours. You will need to go down through the monthes until to see July 2008. Open that and look for the dates/days you will be there this year. That should give you some idea of when it will be open. The parks all four of them open at 9 AM unless they have EMH then they open at 8AM. But those parks tend to be busier than the others on those days. Lois

Thanks!
So, if the hours are the same as last summer, Wishes will be at 10 and the park closes at 11. I want to try and make ADR's for around 7 so that should give us enough time to get back to MK for wishes. Anyone have an idea to what time the spectromagic parade is? ( im not even sure if thats what its called lol) I think when i was there three years ago it was at 9 but i could be wrong.

The only nights it was recorded to be open later in 2008 was the 3rd, 4th & 6th of July. You will have EMH which will afford for a later night. You can use last years calender to get an idea but I trust it less for EMH than I do for an idea of what the park hours might be. I just hope that the hours from last year might help with the planning. The hours for the parks in July 2009 should be posted around April 1st. So for me the wait is on!!! Lois

Disney annouced that they are offering 40% room rates for military and discounted park tickets!
I would have to downgrade to basic dining to take advantage of this offer, but the price of my trip decreases dramatically! DBF had his heart set on deluxe dining so I have to see what he thinks.
I'm just very happy Disney has finally offered something like this to the men and women in the military!
