    last minute hurricane detour!

    Had plans to go to Myrtle Beach 9/7-14, didn't feel gambling with Dorian. We start driving in 6 hours, staying Clearwater-adjacent and got tickets for Tuesday MNSSHP. Got a throwaway campsite night and a Liberty Tree "lunner" for 4:45 (I think... though that makes no sense with our FP+ - anyway...

    last minute hurricane trip?

    Had plans to go to Myrtle Beach 9/7-14 but now looking at the Gulf Coast (as close as Clearwater and as far as Perdido Key) and possibly driving into Orlando to do the Tuesday MNSSHP - are we crazy? Is that something we can decide on Monday, pending weather reports? Last time we went to WDW I...

    Podcasts for car trips?

    I listen to loads of NPR-type podcasts (your This American Life, RadioLab, Serial) but DH would rather poke himself in the eye with a rusty nail. He really liked How Did This Get Made? and so looking around for comedy podcasts we might listen together tonight while the kids are asleep. Anyone...

    Disney road signs

    Random I know but: we are driving down to FL this weekend (eeeeeeeeeekkkk!!!!) taking 75 south from Ohio, staying at Windsor Hills. Kids don't know we are going and we don't plan to tell them until they figure it out or we are at our first park, whichever comes first. Mostly because we haven't...

    re-thinking Cali Grill for Wishes

    We currently have a 9:05pm ADR for 6 on 8/23 and have several problems: 1. we were planning only dessert as that is too late for the kids (ages 6-10) to be holding out for dinner 2. the guilt of knowing that ordering just dessert and drinks is not really the done thing... 2. DH isn't likely to...

    August trip instagram

    Will be going 8/20-28, it's a surprise for the kids and also will be juggling grad school assignments because I'm a genius with scheduling like that. Thought easiest way to share my excitement with... anyone, would be to send my grams out, insta-like. Started an account for our trip today, so...

    What is Pokémon go?

    My phone is ancient and stupid so I don't think I will ever get it either. Which sucks only because my newsfeed is full of memes that I'm sure are funny(?) and it sounds like a good way to get the girls out of the house. My friend says her BF has had their kids out all over town all weekend...

    take home snacks

    Not sure what we will do with all our snack credits. Long story short: the DxDP makes sense for us based on the meals we have scheduled. If history repeats itself, I think last time we had something like 16 snack credits to use up on our last park day = came home with a bunch of stale popcorn...

    Epcot 2 day do-over

    You . Guys. :help: I thought I was all done. I really wanted to be done because I have a paper I should be writing but can't focus. Long story long, Frozen FP+ had us changing our itinerary a little, but maybe for the better in terms of overall vacation pacing #iaintmad. However, this has us...

    drawing class at AoA

    We missed out on taking one of the drawing classes when staying at AoA in 2014. Wanting to try to go on our break day this time, I don't think you had to be a resort guest to do it. Is it worth looking it up on the schedule during our week?

    TS recommendations at resorts or D Springs

    Trying to move some things around and looking for TS dinner recommendations outside of the parks where we can use 1 DP credit/person. BoAtHoU$e was recommended and has 6:30pm opening, but am confused if it is 1 or 2 TS credits. TIA

    Joy & Sadness at park close

    With Frozen FP+ availability sucking before noon, am now considering late arrival Epcot day 2. We'd RD TT & FP+ Soarin' one day, use day 2 for sleeping in, swimming, and evening WS wandering, FEA and the Joy/Sadness meet on our way out. Anyone know what waits have been like at the Not That...

    today on my newsfeed and I can't stop laughing: Picture caption, in case the picture is hard to read after trying to edit out people's names: Super aggrivated because we drove over an hour to Dover so we could see this beach, it's nowhere to be found. Probably in another state. No one here...
