    You've asked the impossible. It's like asking someone to teach you history. There are just too many variables in there. You might get better response by asking specific questions. Good luck!

    My favorite potty is in the Tomorrowland Noodle Station, stall 3 (from the entrance on the left side.) I'm there all the time enjoying a Pad Thai.

    (in the Noodle Station... not the stall...)

    Oh jebus.... you're too funny Taggart! I guess my favorite potty is in Fantasyland near Columbia Harbor House, it's kinda tucked away so the lines arent' as long. haha...

    ^^ Oooh yeah.. that is a good one. The line is good there and if you don't see anything wrong with "using without dining," the bathroom upstairs in the Liberty Tree Tavern is pretty clean and good.

    And yes, I took out a second mortgage to support my full time Pad-Thai eating job.

    Soaring is probably NOT the ride you want to wait. Fast pass it. Probably the same for Everest.

    Fastpass Splash Muntain as well. I find that line to be one of the most miserable to wait in.

    Try to get the fastpasses as soon as you can. From what I've noticed, they are usually gone by Noon.

    How do you think the crowds are going to be during that week? I hate running for fast pass in the morning, it just starts me out all wrong... (I just feel dirty)

    Not quite, as the Everest stand by line has a lot of show elements that introduce the storyline for the ride, and I would advise highly that anyone riding Everest for the first time, get a FP and immediately head for the Stand By... There are numerous hidden jokes from the Imagineers, interactive things to do, a lovely bamboo forrest, yeti Museum and many more expedition type preshow exhibits..
    On the other hand... the stand by line for Soarin' can only be compared to standing in line at Chicago's O'Hare Airport in the middle of a blizzard where no one is moving anywhere. It's torture to say the least. You *MUST* FP 'Soarin' at all cost. But get there early because FPs go fast at both EE and 'Soarin'.

    Re: Oh, it's on! countdown tips and hints

    I would suggest FPing Test Track too, since that line, after a while, will make you want to beat senseless the first person you see. THe music is loud and obnoxious, and it isn't that intersting. Also, with the preshow, the line isn't continuously moving, like many others, but more of a stop and go, which I depsise. Same with Soarin. The Rock and Roller Coaster is the same also. Hate those lines more than any other in WDW.

    And for the record, my favorite potty is the one by the old skyway station in Tomorrowland. Nice and big, and never too crowded, since no one ever wants to walk that far out of the way. But the Ones behind the citrus stand in Fantasyland aren't too bad either.

    In Epcot? Best ones are behind the Imagination pavilion--No one knows they are there...so perfect!
