Loving the report so far. Looking forward to reading some more. I am trying 3 of the same restaurants (WCC, CP, & Biergarten) on our June trip as you are on this trip. Please make sure to give a report. Would appreciate to hear your thoughts on them.

Baylor's valentine box turned out terrific! Tell him he won first prize in my book and won a dole whip float. Just have shocker pick up the tab! LOL

Enjoy your trip!
Tcr! You're here! Yippeeeee! I hope the weather is nice enough for that dole whip float in March, it was too chilly in Oct.....

OK, Wigd....I am hoping that our hopping won't be as hectic as yours sounds!! LOL I did buy the hopper on the advice of all the great disers, but we are just planning on leaving one park, taking a mid-day break and going to a different park on certain days! I'll also admit, being not only a newbie on DIS, but being a first timer to WDW itself....your pretrip report confirms the reason I have no ressies...and you know, I'm really OK with that!! LOL I know we will be giving up some of the luxury of GREAT meals, but I'm not sure I would be able to get from point A in Park B to point C in Park D by catching the monorail to the TTC and then boarding a boat and then walking across Park D to get to a TS in time!! I look forward to a more "relaxed" pace with "junk" food on our first trip down!! Who knows we may even luck out and get a good TS meal here and there....if not, you can think about us when you are enjoying yours!! You guys are GREAT and have taught me so much. Look forward to your next post. Heck, I am even learning what some the jargon y'all use means!!! LOL

I can remember our first trip walking by some of the TS, looking in the windows wishing we could get in.....and we had adrs for each day! If you decide you want a really good meal, try calling the morning you want to go, it can't hurt to try and someone might have cancelled

[B]Before HDDR or on your final day seem to work for this.[/B]

If anyone has any suggestions on how to make these days go smoother please oh please share your ideas
OK wigd...here goes some of my ideas to make this all go a bit smoother for you. First off let it go, you are not getting a rental car....Disney Trans will have to do, breathe in breathe out.

So now that you've embraced your "freedom" from a rental car try this: take the bus to MK for your WCC dinner, then take the boat over to WL. It will be more fun, relaxing and pretty effiecient. Getting to your resort bus by 4 should be plenty of time, even if you just miss a boat.

Bonus tip for Baylor and Disney freebie for shocker: Drivers on every mode of Disney Transporation have cards, kind of like baseball cards for their vessel type. Baylor can collect these from every boat, bus and monorail driver. I think a driver told me there are 8 different types of buses in the fleet, so even the bus cards can be different. A nice FREE fun collection. See what happens w/o a rental car?

By the way yes I'm still up and I hear the snow plows outside. Is it Friday yet?

Keep it coming girlfriend.

bd I can't recall if you are on the DP. If you are make ADRs and do so now, please. You can cancel them if you decide not to use them, but the reverse is much harder to do. If you are on the dp you chance wasting money and having a sad family, don't be "that guy". I'll help you plan some ADRs that are at resorts so it won't matter what park you are in you can catch a bus right to the resort.

What?!? Why did you not go to bed? I knew that I could count on you for level headed advise Baylor has a card from one of the boats but the driver came up and gave it to him. On the bus, does he need to ask? We have never been able to get up front on the monorail but there is always next time.
As for the rental car....... you are right, it probably won't happen but you can't blame a girl for trying.

I'm in agreement with Sept on this one

Paco is a cutie, but as they say, cute is as cute does and he doesn't do very cute
We have covers for our macs so they really are silver on the inside, shhhhh don't tell anyone
Look for the photo pass share on the budget boards. I hope you find one
I am sooo excited for 1900 Park Fare, we are planning a special surprise there

Yes, you'll need to ask the drivers. It was our boat captain who gave Zeke his first one. We did get to ride up front in the monorail and that driver gave us cards w/o asking.

So did Zeke get the bus cards too? Did he have to ask? We will try for up front in the monorail, I'm thinking that before much longer Baylor will think he is too old for all that stuff, so we need to make the most of his youth!
