I cannot thank you guys enough! I love the detailed advice so I really know what to expect!
I was also able to pick up a copy of the Unofficial guide to Walt Disney world from a friend.
I ended up changing my hotel reservation to port Orleans French quarter. We normally stay at the grand Californian when were at Disneyland so after reading Many online reviews I decided not to chance it and FQ seemed to get some good reviews for a moderate.
We are planning to utilize the bus system as much as possible but are fully prepared to call a taxi for several occasions
Epcot is something I really want to see and want to spend a lot of time there. I jut want to walk through different parts of the "world" and really take it in.

We are looking into taking the 4 day carrabian cruise on dec. 8th so we may possible be there for an extra night which we will probably stay at the pop since we won't use the room the last day other than to sleep before the cruise. I'm hoping we go!

If anyone has any advice on anything, the cruise or if they think this plan is crazy please let me know. I'm here for advice! Thanks again to everyone who responded with great insight on "the world "
