UGH (in a good way), more to think about!
The Florida parks are EASY to navigate. It's literally a case of "Go up to the split.... decide if you want to circle the lake/lagoon clockwise or counter clockwise".

So Universal announced today the expansion to WWoHP today. Diagon Alley opening in 2014. So in the time it's taking Disney to open the Mine Train, Universal is opening Transformers: The Ride, and whole new Harry Potter area and I think Despicable Me as well was under construction and completed. Disney needs to step their game up.

Okay, I have a silly question to ask of all of you. I mentioned party and dancing as the fun at my reception and got negative comments regarding having dancing. Some were to the extent of "oh, aren't you two too old to have dancing at your reception?". and. . ."fun? Isn't a wedding a solemn experience?". If these comments were from really old people I would just ignore them. One was from a 30-something and the other from a 42 year old. Wow, when did having fun become an age thing. My question for all of you is, would you question someone at my age wanting to have fun, dance and party on her wedding day?

I know the answer but can't wait for the rhetoric. . .love you all.

What? Lol. Jeez. I haven't been to many weddings. But I'm pretty sure dancing is like mandatory. If it makes you happy Darcy, have the dancing. It's your wedding after all. I mean. Don't we sometimes get flak for liking Disney even if "it's for kids!?" Just my two cents

I don't know how old you are but I'm going to be 36 and I couldn't imagine a wedding where there was not dancing and since its a happy occasion I would expect you to be having the time of your life! It was your special day, live it up!

Oh it's Totally a solemn experience.

We are planning on playing this as Rachel walks down the aisle, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyFyAqLtHq8

And everyone will be wearing black, including her veil.

We want to make sure that it's a super-serious affair and that everybody realizes that this is not a moment to be happy about, celebrate, or generally have any fun whatsoever with anything even remotely related to this totally solemn experience.

Okay so I pretty much knew the answer to this question, it was fun to ask. I am still floored that people said this to me. . .2 people to be exact. . .out of 100.

Uninvite them!

But seriously the dancing is my favorite part of a wedding but even if it weren't it's YOUR day so you should do what makes you happy!

??? seriously. someone said that

geez, at my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary party, people danced all night, and took up a collection to get the band to play longer..

heck, it's your wedding day, if you want juggling monkeys, you should have juggling monkeys, if people have an issue with what you want to do at your wedding, tell them to talk to The Pyrate... don't let anyone rain on your parade
