I've been trying to figure out a daily schedule, so I'll post what I've figured so far and please chime in with any thoughts.

9/3: Monday - Arrival Day.

- Leaving Baltimore at 7:25 am to arrive in Orlando at 9:40.
- Using DME and should be at Jambo House by 11:00 am.
- Check-in, if rooms not ready, will have some snacks at the CL and give Richard and Melanie (R & M in the future) a tour of the resort.
-Hollywood Studios has evening EMHs (9-midnight) so that's where we'll head as soon as we're ready.

9/4: Tuesday

-Breakfast in the CL.
-No evening EMHs so will let R & M choose the park today. There is no way in the universe they will be getting up early enough for morning EMHs so that is not even being factored in.

9/5: Wednesday

-Breakfast in the CL.
-Same as Tuesday, no evening EMHs so will let R & M choose where they'd like to go. I do not think it's necessary for them to buy Park Hoppers this trip since they haven't been in so long.

9/6: Thursday

-Breakfast at Boma, 10:00 am.
-Planning on this to be a pool day. After three full days I'm pretty sure they'll be ready for a break. I have run this idea by them and they think it's a good idea.
-Perhaps mini golf in the afternoon or a movie in the evening.

9/7: Friday

-Breakfast in the CL.
-Epcot has evening EMHs (9-midnight) so that's the park for the day. I'm pretty sure we'll have to take a break halfway through. Epcot has a lot of walking and I don't want them to get too tuckered out.

9/8: Saturday

-Breakfast in the CL.
-Will let R & M choose the park.

9/9: Sunday

-Breakfast at Boma again, 10:00 am. I made two reservations because I feel sure they'll want to go again, but if they don't I can always cancel it. Of course, mom and I could go alone also. I'm just going to play it by ear.
-Magic Kingdom has evening EMHs (9-midnight) which is where we'll head whenever we're ready.

9/10: Monday - Departure Day

Will be having as stress free a last day as possible.

-I'm going to request a late check-out which I'm hoping won't be a problem, if they aren't able to we'll work with it.
-Do airline check-in
-4:15pm DME pick-up for our 7:15 flight.
-No park today, I'm just thinking it would make the day a bit too rushed. We can either go to DTD for some shopping and lunch or enjoy the pool/resort. I will not be letting R & M go off on their own, they are almost always tardy to family functions and will not risk them missing the pick-up.

I'll go through each park later and chat about what are must do's and ok to miss.

Hi Tanz! Glad you came over No worries, you can always read it if you want, I posted links to each update on the first page.

How is the job hunt going? I hope you were able to find something.

We've been OKW owners for a loooong time and have stayed there over 30 times. We love it, and no other DVC resort even came close - until we stayed at Kidani. We love it, too!

Your plans look great. I always wanted to go to WDW the week after Labor Day. I think it has to be the lowest crowd week for the whole year. Congrats on the CL booking. That's awesome. Love Boma for breakfast!

Would you believe I had no idea it was Labor Day until I booked it and it suddenly hit me. I almost thought of pushing it back a day because I was worried flights would be outrageous. But after a little research found that it shouldn't be bad and thankfully it wasn't. Only $88 each way which I was happy to get. I'm really hoping for low crowds, it would make things much smoother. The only kink that I hadnt thought of is that it will probably be muggy. Hopefully it won't be too bad. Should probably do a bit more research on the weather.
