I'm happy for you that this great idea you had, is a reality.
The only Walt Disney World trip I recall was in April of 2004 which was the worst month to go to the Magic Kingdom in Orlando because it happened to be College Spring Break Month, great scott! Every attraction we attempted to go on was crowded with long lines of visitors waiting their turns to experience the magic, so to speak and we did not know about the FastPass kiosks either, that's where you insert your passport into the machine, a slip of paper comes out informing the time zones of when to be in line to use the coupon. That way when Cast Members call out "Anybody or anyone with FastPass coupons?" and if hands go up "Please come to the front of the line" and you would get to move to the front of the class, that is to be FIRST IN LINE to get on your favorite attraction.
So the only attractions we got to experience were...
Haunted Mansion (Magic Kingdom's Liberty Square)
Pirates Of The Caribbean (Magic Kingdom's Adventureland)
Hall Of Presidents (Magic Kingdom's Liberty Square)
Carousel Of Progress (Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland)
Time Keeper (Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland)
Spaceship Earth (EpCot - I rode this attraction alone)
Test Track (EpCot - I rode this attraction alone)
Body Wars (EpCot)
Universe Of Energy (EpCot)
Honey I Shrunk The Audience (EpCot)
Tram Tour (MGM Studios)
Great Movie Ride (MGM Studios)
MuppetVision 3D (MGM Studios)
Twilight Zone Tower Of Terror (MGM Studios - My brother and I rode together)
It may be another long time before Jason (my younger brother) and I go back to WDW to re-live the attractions again or we might decide to experience the magic of Disneyland instead since we've been to that theme park 3 times, i.e. 3-peat (1986-1998-2000)
I just came back from WDW Nov 16 after a whole week there! (Nov 9-16) WOW!!! The weather was perfect, our hotel rocked (Port Orleans Riverside) Hardly any lines, 80 degree weather all 7 days, except we didn't ride Space Mountain or Haunted Mansion b/c it was closed. & SM b/c we were exhausted when we got back to our hotel after being there ALL DAY 8 am til 9 pm-our blistered feet thanked us when we went to bed. (our is my madre y yo-mi mom & I). day 1 @ MK, day 2 Epcot (except a 3 hr wait for Soarin-which was awesome!-we had 2 go back a 2nd day 2 ride it, plus Test Track & other things) We ate @ Spoodles, Wolfgang Puck, & the Polynesian Luau (which was tricky for my mom b/c she's a vegetarian & they have meat, which was heavenly, but the chefs brought her salad). Our trip was soooo awesome b/c this was our 1st trip w/out our family (6 people in my family, me, my mom, brother-in-law, 2 nieces (5 & 1 yr old) & sister! Wonderful trip indeed!
front page has Epcot on it, I took it myself! New pics on other pages!

We had the BEST time! I had heard a lot of negative comments about the Ohana breakfast at the Polynesian Resort but we went anyway and I have to say it was GREAT!!!! Each character came to our table 2 times and my kids LOVED the parade around the restaurant...even the good tasted good to me and my family. We had a total of 10 of us and they got us in quickly and kept the food warm the whole time! Stitch even took my daughter by the hand and took her on the parade!
Magic Kingdom on 2 days the 15th and 20th and the 15th was a little busy but nothing like summer. The 20th was very short lines...no waiting except for maybe 10 min on one ride. Wonderful weather and we saw many, many characters. So many that we ran out of room in our autograph books!
We went to MGM one day it was not busy either and we had a great time....except for the Bug's Life playground was crazy and we lost one of the kids for 20 min and my brother in law was freaking out!!!
We went to Animal Kingdom also and it was not busy either...great time and lots of fun!
We went to the 1900 Park Faire at the Grand Floridian and the girls went crazy over Cinderella! Everyone was wonderful and all characters came to our table 2 times....it was AWESOME.
My daughter was disappointed because we didn't see Snow White or Belle...does anyone know where you can see them????

Looks like you had a blast oh and the kids also (smile). I can't wait to go in June....
April 23rd, oh yeah it's gonna be ON!
I had the Ohana dinner, i LOVED IT, though it was kinda chilly & my mom couldn't eat some of the food, the chefs made her a salad which she was very happy about. The food was delicious, nutritious, & dessert was so good, I wonder where the recipe for it is.
P.S. I'm glad you had fun on your trip! Where are those photos?

Disneylady,s Nightmare/dream Holiday
Where do I begin........................This is what happened on my last visit to Disneyworld in October ................The flight takes about 9hrs................well about 2 hrs before we were due to land in Orlando my Husband started to feel really ill & by the time we got to Orlando he had collapsed, so as soon as the crew got all the other passengers off the medic crew dashed onboard ( they were fantastic ) .it was like something you see on the tv or movies..............anyway they got him off the aircraft & into an ambulance & we had a Police escort (sirens wailing ) & I had to sit up front with the ambulance driver....ambulance sirens on too.....She said bet you never thought you,d be riding in an ambulance!!.......I said " No, I thought my first ride in Orlando would have been in Disneyworld,s "Splash Mountain".I had to make a kinda joke or I,d have .
He was in Sandlake Hospital for 4 days & it was an ulcer that caused all the trouble so all our plans had to be set aside when he got out & we took it easy day to day as he felt very weak & not up to more than a few hours at a park at a time.
But we were determined to enjoy what we had left of our holiday as its not like you live an hour away & can go back any time.....................Oh & to top that ,I had no luggage!!!!!!!!!!!!!from the Friday evening ( when we got there ) till Sunday night .............late at night ................when I finally got the Airport to deliver my luggage direct to the Hotel.
When I left him at the hospital it was like 2.30AM IN THE MORNING and I called a cab & thought I,d wait outside the main entrance ......by 3..30AM still no cab .& to be honest I was getting really frightened at that time of the morning standing in the dark..........so back into the hospital I went & they rang for me again & finally at 4am I got a cab to check into my hotel. NIGHTMARE.
We got to all the parks during the following 2 weeks and even got to a " Halloween Party " in Magic Kingdom.& went to "Dixie Stampede" dinner show ...I highly recommend it .
Had loads of photos done & made the most of the situation .................. now I can,t wait for Nov/Dec this year when we hope to do all the things we weren,t able to do last time.
Oh & one more little thing that went wrong..as we left"Epcot" we bought our photos that we got done in there that day.....four lovely ones. Somehow we lost them on the way back to the Hotel...........so back we went to "Epcot " the next day & luckily I had the photopass & the receipt & were able to get them done again............I said " These are the most expensive photos I,ve had done & the lovely man said "no charge mam" Thankyou Disneyworld.......there are some nice people around.
You never think in a million years that something like this can happen to you on your holiday good job we had the right kind of insurance...the many bills came to over 26thousand american dollars........................ FRIGHTENING.
Thanks to anyone who reads my "Happy Holiday "review lol lol

I just came back from a trip and of course it was awesome!!!! I was down there and met up with some of my friends. They hadn't been on crush and gusher yet, so we went on probably like 50 times. You have to go on the coconut track though. It is the most fun because it has a double drop that you can get some awesome air off of. Something to note is that they were testing new fireworks while we were down there. I'll post more about my trip a little later

GO RED SOX!!!!
Some people say I'm A.D.D., but I HEY LOOK A SQUIRREL!!!!!
i have got to say The Magic Kingdom at night was a very moving experience for me! i stood in the circle opposite the castle and to see all the crowds with the statue of one of the greatest men that ever lived was like a religious experience.
