    Definitely won't be there for SB, I think we made that mistake last year. I hope if I wait until the following it's still cool, but yeah I could probably get two of the rides at Epcot, but doubtful RR at DHS but I'm not gonna sweat it, heck I might not make it til evening.

    In my opinion they could dump Drew and Idol and maybe backlot and they could always build up creatively, since some studios are in high rises or a few low rise buildings.

    I agree it does look ill-conceived and I must say that a lot of the CMs that work their don't come close to the job MK CMs do in putting best foot forward. clears throat, Kelwyn, manager, really.

    DHS definitely too me has room for improvement and maybe they will and maybe they will expand Sunset Boulevard. Here's an idea, how about some star homes virtual tours in a building like you're on a tour bus.

    Our spring breaks around here are mid to late March and Easter is earlier this year. Our first IL University goes on Spring Break not this weekend but the next and the rest follow through the month of March. It was frustrating having my two kids in college and on different Spring Breaks yet both in Public, State Universities. One down, one to finish.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    That would be frustrating two children on different spring breaks especially spending time together.

    They are going to have to do something with all the new attractions Universal is putting in. Fantasylands two and Tangled Bathrooms are just not going to cut it. The one thing that Islands is doing that hurt them before is putting in family friendly attractions, they finally realized that park wasn't family friendly for the younger families.

    My kids are 5 grades apart and had very little in common until the second one went off to college. DS took his sweet time getting through and also did a college program at Disney in 2007-8 and then transferred Universities, they should not have overlapped in college, but so much for that financial plan.

    I have to agree, I mean we need some thrill rides too. And I've always felt that most of the rides at MK really aren't family friendly anyways, their stark, dark and kids crying scared.

    Hospitals and clinics in the areas impacted by Hurricane Sandy are seeing an increase in women with due dates in late July and early August. As high as a 30 percent spike. Wooba.

    Lots of conflicts with Birthday parties in a few years! Need a teaching job, in 5 years that area will need to add a few.

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    I'm winding up!

    In a time when state and federal funding to local school districts are being cut drastically, the 'lets move' inititive will be funded how? We all have grand ideas but how to pay for them is another, especially at 60 minutes per day.

    Says 'some schools will receive modest grants to help start the programs.' After hammering out school budgets for years, those three underlined words are very troublesome. Not to knock physical exercise but when we are making class sizes larger, cutting reading specialists because funding has disappeared, a reality check is needed before we receive any more unfunded mandates. Do districts spend money on educating children toward no child left behind and test scores or 60 minutes of day of physical exercise? Does anyone hear me screaming?

    Church bells in Northern IL will ring at 1pm to signify the Pope officially not being a Pope any longer.

    For almost 45 minutes TV shows have been interrupted to watch the Pope board a helicopter to go 15 miles and has been in the air already for 13 minutes.

    Have to say I like the election process for a Pope though, we could take some lessons from that, no hanging chads.

    Or boring as all heck too for a child who is not aware of the stories or be able to comprehend the message of a Small World or the analogy of PP flying over the villages. Not all preschoolers correlate that. My kids got a kick out of Seuss Landing and ET.

    I really like Tokyo's version of Pooh, it is more engaging.

    Pope watch-his helicopter finally landed.

    Long time to go 15 miles. Good thing that pilot isn't a medi-vac pilot.
