    I understand baggage handling and flight check in at MCO are very different if you use Magical Express. We've stayed away from DME though due to the extra time you have to set aside to meet the bus on arrival and departure. The headaches we experienced flying out of Orlando since 911 can absoulutely ruin your day. With no curbside checkin, the long lines at the ticket counter and security checkpoints are ridiculously long and maddening. Its no way to end your "magical" trip to the World.

    Flying in and out of TPA in early January 08 was a breeze and the travel time to WDW is only about 40 mins longer than from MCO. Well worth the drive to eliminate the frustration experienced every single time at MCO. The only bad thing about sharing this idea is the possibility of people actually following our advice and switching to TPA. Lets just keep this between us, OK?
    Don't worry, I hate to drive on vacation... may look into a shuttle from Tampa to Orlando, if that exists... will run the numbers for both before booking our next MCO flight, thanks for the tip.

    There is a bench with Goofy at the MK. But I am pretty sure he laughs whether or not someone is sitting on his lap (it happens automatically).

    when I went to MK last time during the day he didn't laugh automatically. We had to sit next to him to make him laugh (and I think I remember his flower sqirted too)
    Quite a scare for my bff
    I was laughing so hard

    I went in May of 2008. and I was there before the park opened cause I was doing the Keys to the Kingdom tour. Guess they hadn't fully turned him on yet.

    Re: Your best WDW Secret!!

    I haven't read all the 80 pages but I'll say some of the ones I know. Sorry if there are repeats.

    End of the night and you want to get out of the Magic Kingdom with a crowd going on? First, go through Casey's and you can walk all the way through the stores to the main exit. That is the fast way than walking through Main Street. The second part is take the Resort Monorail instead of the Express. They both go to the same place but most people who visit don't realize that.

    On Buzz, in the scene with the giant robot toy (it's in the begining) there is a target on his left arm. It is worth 100K a hit.

    Don't be afraid to ask for a table at a place you haven't made reservations for. You never know. Amy and I got to eat at Chef Mickey's breakfast that way.

    Re: Your best WDW Secret!!

    I have looked at this site several times and haved decided to join. I love Disney World and tell my 1st graders it is not just for kids. This is my first post, and I wanted to update you on one of the secerts posted on the first page of this forum.

    I was just in Disney World Nov 7-14, and the General Store on Main St. in Magic Kingdom is no longer there. It is now a glass blowing shop. The phone that you could pick up and hear the "party line" has been moved to the Chapeau. The phone is now located in the back part of the Chapeau(where they momogram the hats) on the right hand wall. Right now it is sort of hidden behind a small christmas tree in the shop.

    Re: Your best WDW Secret!!

    I saw on one of the pages in this forum about the Singing in the Rain umbrella myth, and if it is true or not. Can you explain the myth? I haven't heard this one before.

    What myth about the umbrella? That it exists? It does. Not sure what your confusion is over.

    The umbrella isn't a myth. It really is there, and really works.

    When I was reading through the previous pages someone stated that there was a myth about the Singing in the Rain umbrella. I had not heard about the myth and wanted to know what it was.

    I must have skipped a few pages because after I posted the question, I found another answer that said it is an umbrella on a post that rains when you pull on it.

    Anyway, I have never seen it. I will have to look for it the next time I go.

    Re: Your best WDW Secret!!

    I've never seen it either, but then I've never bothered to look for it. DHS isn't my favorite park, so the couple of hours I spend there are on riding the attractions I want to see and then heading toward the exit.
