Enjoying the pre trip report so far. Popcorn: You guys are going to have so much fun! My little guy was 2 1/2 when we went in May. It was wonderful.

Your plans loo great so far! I just have to ask, why are you not taking the magic express? Id nothing else the luggage service makes it soooo awesome.

The only other suggestion I have is for animal kingdom. I had planned to do the safari at rope drop but it turns out thy was everyone's plan! We ended up grabbing a FP for the safari doing the trail next to it, then riding the train and ended up finishing it all just in time for the safari. It needed up being a perfect crowd free impromptu plan!

Thanks for following! I need to figure out the links thing. Lol bare with my ummm blondeness.

We aren't taking the magic express because of our crunched schedule (magic express makes you leave 3 hours prior to take off time). Also, I have to stop at the grocery store to pick up at the least water (very picky parents) and organic whole milk ( very picky toddler only drinks one type).

Thanks for that tip!!!!

That makes sense! Our toddler is picky about milk. We gave him non organic milk once while we were moving and it gave him the worst stomachache! If you want to avoid a trip to the grocery store Garden Grocers delivers to Disney resorts and they have a lot of organic options!

What a cutie your son is! I'd love to see photos of the party and your new outfits! I'm not sure about ears outside the parks the first night but I'd just go to bed early and get ready to go early the next morning. The Chapeau on main street is the only place I know where they add Micheal's name but save it for when he starts getting hot and needs a break.
Hmm, best spots for:
Mickey Bar - there is a booth right in front of the castle
Dole Whip - in adventureland on the way to the Pirates, the line is long though
Mickey Pretzel - The Lunching Pad in Tomorrowland
Turkey Leg - a cart near the riverboat in frontierland
Looking forward to hearing more!

to be honest when we went in Aug of 2004 I planned everything for a year out, and I do mean everything it was the first trip for my stepson who was not quite 5 at the time.... it was HOT and BUSY and miserable, but we got everything on my itinerary done... we were worn out and have not and will not ever go back in August, but my stepson talked about that trip for 3 years til he went back again! and I always plan meals by the park will will be in that day, but my husband hates being on a schedule, and the truth is since I had surgery in 2009 I can not concentrate long enough to plan everything out, so it works out better for everyone

Was it busy in August? I almost would brave the heat and humidity (both of which I don't mind and neither does my son but not until he's older) just to have a less crowded park. I don't have rides and attractions scheduled just parks. We are on such a crunched schedule its needed or we will just end up wandering around I think. I'm already afraid he will only get to ride 5-6 rides tops if lines are really that bad.

The first half of August (before school starts back up) can be pretty busy.

I can't take the heat. The year we went in June was awful. Yes, we still had a great time, but the heat was oppressive and we just didn't do as much as we usually do.

I much prefer the fall. It is still hot...but not as hot or miserable as June/July/August.
