The 5 fingers seem to be a love/hate thing with people. They feel different, yes but in the most wonderful way. If it was socially acceptable (and not gross) to walk around barefoot, I would. I have lousy knees and ankles from years of gymnastics and I feel very sure footed when I wear them.
It is very important to get the right size. They explain how to measure your feet on the Vibram website and you may wear a different size in different styles. The material around the toes is like a substantial pantyhose material . I don't notice it at all, but some people can't stand it.
They tell you to wear them for short outings and work up to all day wear. My legs were sore the first few times, just from using different muscles to walk. Now I love them.
I've been wanting to try these for a while. This may be a good excuse! How are they in the heat and if they get wet? I do like my feet to breathe and with those August thunderstorms I like a shoe that isn't going to be uncomfortable when it gets wet.

Looking at the discounts thread and the historical discounts I think I'm out of luck on a discount for this year. I was kind of hoping for a FD discount so we could move into a suite at AoA but I don't think that's going to come out for the dates we're going. Last year we went the week of Thanksgiving and fell right between the discount windows (no surprise) and it's looking like the same will happen this year. The next promo ends on 8/14 and the one after that I'm guessing won't start until 8/25 if the past two years are any indication.

We booked under a free dining bounceback that was valid for check-in dates of 8/18 and beyond. So it's possible they could release a public free dining offer for the same dates or ones close to it. I would still hold out hope!

Yeah, I had that BB last year and didn't think we were going to be able to come so we didn't book it. I'm kicking myself now because it would've worked out well for this trip. We will look at the BB very closely on this trip. We're planning a return in June 2014 so I'm hoping that there will be a BB for then.

For some reason, I thought bouncebacks are not usually offered for June (because it's a peak season)? I've never traveled in June, so someone else may know better!

I saw that current bouncebacks at the resorts are for room-only discounts through the end of the year:

There were room only discounts for the entire month of August the last two years - it's just that the second half of the month didn't come out until May. Don't give up hope - I'm sure there will be something for the last half of August! (found these discounts on Mousesavers)

Looking the same stuff I see the same thing however, It doesn't change my excitement at all, just makes it more budget conscious

I got my lime green Skechers Go Walks today! They seem super comfy! I'm going to wear them out and about for some errands tomorrow to see how they feel. I don't normally even like my feet in something and wear flip flops most of the time, but I figure this will keep the kids from stepping on my feet!

QUESTION OF THE DAY
Has anyone ever had a dream about Disney?

Last night I dreamt that I was walking with my 2 daughters into MK, we were surprised to be there. It looked more like a small airport with a people mover and Disney posters. We were the only ones there and it was so cool to be there when it was empty. We got to the castle and I wanted to take a pic with the girls by the bronze statue of Dumbo, but had trouble finding it around the castle...anyway DD7 was dancing around a fountain and fell in! She can't swim. She couldn't in my dream either. It was deep and once I pulled her out she danced in excitement and fell in again. There were CMs all around with their feet in the fountain.

Crazy dream! I day dream about disney all the time but I'm not sure if I've dreamt about it. Probably at some point!

I had a dream about Disney once or twice before our last trip. But I fall asleep thinking about Disney just about every night!
