    As for Soarin, it is not bad at all. I don't like thrill rides at all and I'm a pilot. I don't do roller coasters. When on Soarin, just sit back and relax. If you get a little scared, just close your eyes for a sec. Just don't miss out on the last scene, it will take your breath away!

    Since you plan to take disabled people I would recommend renting a car. You can use your state disabled placard to get handicapped parking. You need a car in WDW as you can then go outside and eat cheap or shop at Wal Mart for clothes, food and stuff you left at home. A car can be had with some internet sleuthing for about $250 a week.

    I and my mother who was in her 70's rode Soarin in DCA on the west coast. The ride does not really jar your back but the idea of being lifted 500 feet or so it seems into the air is very scary to some people. My mom is a little afraid or falling or heights and said she would never go on it again.

    If you are taking disabled or older people do your research.

    It has been a while but I love the welsh store that sold a dandelion in a glass globe. It was in the United Kingdom area. I spent most of a day shopping in Epcot.

    Hi 2tinners, My wife and I have had reservations and came early for our dinner, and they sat us as soon as a table opened up. I hope this helps. It never hurts to ask for an earlier time. :-)

    Thanks MickeyspalJim. I will do it. Everyone has been so nice about their advice. My husband and I have never done the priority seating as we always had the kids (young ones). Boy, these restaurants fill up fast for the character side.

    Hillo, If you book Your october trip on or before october 4th, the price would be the value season price of $79.00 a night. The price of your first night of stay will be the price of each other days stay, even if the other nights move into the regular season rates.

    One of our 2 times a year to WDW falls in October, and We always make sure it starts early during the last days of the value season. With being annual passholders, we usually get the rooms for $59.00 a night. So if You are staying at a moderate resort You can usually get the rooms for $79.00 a night. After so many nights, the passes pay for themselves. Other discounts come with being a annual passholder too...

    We have to go Oct. 11-16 because of my brother's fall break. There is no other time we could go. It would be nice to have the cheaper price though.
