We will definitely keep an eye out for you.

I was told to be sure to ask for ketchup and additional napkins while we are dining at WCC.....I hear the waitstaff does crazy things when the customer gives certain trigger words. Have you experienced this? I'm thinking this sounds like a place that my girls will enjoy.

Hey folks!! You don't really ever have to leave WDW. My friend Eddie went to Disney World in 1988 and has never returned!! If you're at Ft. Wilderness, say hi to Eddie at the front desk.

I hope when my DH retires, I can join him... although I'd like to work somewhere there is shopping!!

First, I wanted to say how sorry I was to hear about the monorail wreck and the CM that passed away. His poor family; I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers.


Jmskinner - that is a terrific idea! I wish that we had some to see right now! That would be neat seeing pictures of ourselves through someone else's camera.

Oh, and we have only 8 days until we leave!!!!!

Morning everyone! I can't believe it is the Monday before my trip! I am tooo excited, and a little stressed! Rethinking some ADRs and times, thinking about driving vs. busses while we are there.... But it's all good! I read something on someone's post a while back, totally butchering it here, but it was essentially don't mourn because it's over, rejoice because you did it. I am going to try to take on that attitude!

DH's plantar fasciitis started acting up at the end of last week, he'd been pain free for a year, so of course it's time for him to start limping! UGGGGH!!!! I am trying everything I know to get it better, but I told him that if he can't walk I'm leaving him in the rooom! He said he'd rent a ECV before he missed out on my trip of a lifetime! He's going to the dr. this afternoon to talk about maybe getting a cortisone shot later in the week...

Been checking out the 10 day forecast on weather.com. 93 degrees anyone? YIKES!

We've been 3 times and never asked for extra napkins, but ketchup has always been requested. The last time I took my Mom and didn't tell her anything about the restaurant. She kept wanting to get up and look for ketchup, I just told her "Jacob needs to learn to ask for himself!" Just in case you don't know what they do I won't tell you her respoonse, but it was great.

Also, haven't gotten to try it, but ask for the restroom and extra tea also.

Thanks, but not an original idea, there is a thread where people have been posting crowd pics with dates so you can look for your yourselves and I just thought since we are all going during the same month we might be more apt to see ourselves.

Had lunch at 50's Primetime (walk-in). Had our pics taken with the UP and Monters, Inc. characters. Saw The Little Mermaid, the 3:00 parade/show (can't remember the name), and AIE. Looked in a couple of the stores. Left by 5:30. The longest waits were 50 minutes for RnR, which we had FP's for and it was having some issues because we watched several trains go through without people. And TSMM was at 50 minutes late in the day, 30 minutes in the morning. Really strange day. I walked around all day and kept saying "Where is everyone?"
That is great news - I hope it stays that way for the next few weeks!!

It will save me the time of re-reading about 50 to 75 pages. Lois
Lois - Thank you for keeping all of us organized. I really appreciate the work you and Nikki did with the "Whos going" and "ADRs".

To the Disney July brides - Enjoy your days!!!

I can't believe we leave in less than a week!

My family and I will be visiting Disney from July 16th through the 24th. We are celebrating my girls birthdays. My oldest turns 13 this weekend. My youngest turns nine a week after we get back.

This year we're going to stay in Port Orleans Riverside. I requested the mansions so hopefully they'll be able to find one for us as both of my girls fell in love with them from the pics on the Disney.com site.

I made all of my dinner reservations in April. We didn't take advantage of the dining plan last year. We mostly at CS or out of our cooler, although we did make a stop at Tony's, a favorite of mine from my visits in the late 80's. After reading tons of reviews, I think I've made good choices....the only one that worries me is Restaurant Marrakesh but I think we'll be okay. After all, who doesn't like shish kabobs and couscous, right? Lol!

This year we'll be eating at
Liberty Tree Tavern on 7-17 @ 7
Boma on 7-19 @ 9am
Restaurant Marrakesh on 7-20 @ 7
Whispering Canyon on 7-21 @ 7
Chef Mickey on 7-22 @ 9am
50's Primetime also on 7-22 @ 7
and then dinner at O'Hana's @ 6:30
before starting our long sad drive back to Indiana (are there any other adults that feel sad when they leave Disney? lol! DH thinks I'm nuts!)
WELCOME!!! So glad you decided to post here!!

I added your ADRs to the list on page 67. Happy planning!!

(And I totally get the sadness! I'm starting to get sad already that it's going to be over soon and it hasn't even begun yet!)

I just bought a little over $2K worth of Disney tickets. Yikes! At least they should last us a few years. I talked DH into getting the 10 day hopper, water park fun and more, no expiration. Even he had a hard time arguing that we may not go back.

Yay My last day at work - Just 12 hours to go.
Of course I have to take CPR tomorrow and I have a leadership class for 2 hours on wednesday. But that will all be easy breezy.

I plan to do as little work as possible today

That is a great Idea and a way to keep this thread going for a while after we all return.

You are more than welcomed. I just feel bad that life got in the way and I have missed some folks. However I have offered to add anyone who PM me with the info and have not gotten any info.

Please, if you are not on the list of Who's going and want to be added please PM the name of the resort and the dates you will be staying. I will get you added.

It is very sad about the accident at WDW. The driver who passed was only 21 years old. His life had just begun. I feel for this family and the co workers. Also for the witnesses as I am sure this stay with them forever. I too have kept this situation in my prayers. I hope that they find it wasn't human error because everything else can be fixed.

I am now at panic mode just 48 hours before getting on the plane for our vacation. Got to get busy. Lois

I am just a tad bit excited!!!!!!! Frantically packing today and yesterday and of course, NOW is when the sun and nice weather all show up here in New England. I want to be outside!

Enjoy your trips to all who are already there.

And I feel such sadness for the monorail driver. How tragic.

And a big BOO to every family member who showed up at our cookout yesterday and announced right in front of my 9 year old "DID YOU HEAR THERE WAS A MONORAIL CRASH???????" thanks a whole freaking lot.
