Yeah that's what I was thinking too. Maybe there will be another DVC resort in the works at that point!

Now the Studio completely turned them off. They said the bathroom section that has the toilet does not have the sink. And in fact you have to walk down a short hall, around a corner to get to the sink. Then the kitchen area and the bathroom sink are right next to each other, sort of like a galley kitchen.

This doesn't make sense at all...why would you have to walk so much with dirty hands? Wouldn't you want to reach a sink within just a few feet?
Hi there! Wonderful PTR!

I couldn't agree more about the bathroom in the studio.

You have a beautiful baby girl with a beautiful name. Elizabeth is my name.

Hello! Welcome to my PTR.

It does seem very strange to have the studio bathroom sink so far from the toilet...but I haven't heard anyone else complain about this yet...

Yeah, another Elizabeth. Just curious...do you have a nickname? We are still trying to figure out what nickname, if any, to call her.

I do! My middle name is Ann. So I've always gone by Beth Ann. Elizabeth is when I'm in trouble. "Elizabeth Ann" ... big trouble! GL with a nickname.

Planning

Ok, on to some fun planning now.

Although I don't think we'll get to Animal Kingdom on this trip, here are the attractions we'll do if we get there.

Of course, any and all suggestions/comments are greatly appreciated...remember we'll have a 4 yo and 8 mo old (which reminds me I need to get a copy of the Unofficial Guide from our Library to see the kid's ratings for each ride).

ANIMAL KINGDOM
============


Priority - Kilimanjaro Safari

Seconds - Nemo or Lion King, TriSpin, Trails

"Go crazy and have fun" - Dinosaur Playground

Adult - Everest, Premeval Whirl

Food - Tusker House (TS), Yak & Yeti or Flame Tree


No plans for the parade at this time unless there is a EMH and we decide to go to the park later in the day.

DISNEY STUDIOS

Priority - Toy Story Mania, Playhouse Disney

(we were lucky to be able to experience TSM before it opened last year. My DD3 loved it and we definitely want to go again. However, if I remember correctly, Elie would not be able to sit on my lap but would be buckled into the middle seat. I'm not sure how secure this will be for her, esp in the spins...also not sure if the spinning would scare an 8 month old. We may have to Child Swap this.)

Seconds - Muppets (but again, this may be too scary for an 8mo old. DD3 has not done this yet), Little Mermaid

Go crazy and have fun - It's Tough to be a Bug Playground

Food - Sci Fi (?) or Commissary or ???

(I know this gets bad reviews but the atmosphere may be enough to keep an 8 mo old occupied (?) and my DH is totally into the old, bad sci fi movies.)

This parade might be a fun one to do if we are in the park. I doubt we'll get to see Fantasmic this time since it'll be tough to keep 2 small kids occupied for an hour wait.

Beauty & the Beast show, if timing works out.

This is a great plan! The tiger and gorilla trails are also great. (By Trails I was assuming you meant the character trails over at Camp Minnie Mickey.)

I had a much better meal at the Sci Fi in September than I expected. Your older daughter will like the part about sitting in the little car and your DH will definitely enjoy all the movie clips, cartoons, coming attractions and ads.

Chris and I LOVE Sci Fi. When you're there you totally should get a Marsha's Martian (see you share your name with the BEST drink EVER!!) Since you're still nursing Elie I know you won't really be able to have it but your DH can enjoy it.

Actually I meant the animal trails...totally forgot about the Camp Minnie-Mickey thing...yes, I definitely need to put characters on my list for each park.

I think it was your TR that got me thinking about Sci Fi...

What? You've never been to AK? I didn't realize that. I actually really do like this park ... esp if you can take the time to relax and see all the animals (if you like that sort of thing).

Maybe they can make a non-alcoholic one for me!

Glad to hear another vote for SciFi! We haven't been here yet and I do like to try new restaurants each trip.
