    Club 33 and WDW? Wow, this is a big month. I'm Jealous.

    Best advice I ever got: Don't worry about seeing it all, just enjoy what your doing while your doing it.

    Have Fun!

    My best hint is... AVOID park hopping as much as possible so you can maximize the time you spend daily at each of the WDW parks.

    Re: Countdown to my first trip to Florida!!!

    First off, have a great time!

    Now my advice:

    1. Always go where the crowd isn't, unless there are big signs that say, "Employees Only," because you aren't allowed back there. LOL
    2. Bring a light jacket, this time of year the evenings are cool.
    3. If it's sunny and/or cloudy you can still sunburn so be mindful.
    4. Bring a pen.
    5. If you have a camera, bring extra batteries.
    6. Have a great time.
    7. Don't rush it, accept the fact that you can't do it all.
    8. Ask to sit in the front of the monorail whenever possible, best seat in the house. IMHO
    9. Have a churro, turkey leg, Figaro fries or a dole whip. Have at least 1 or all 4 if your feeling adventurous.
    10. Wear comfortable shoes.


    That's all I got, have fun!

    Yeah, I was a little surprized myself. Heck with Disney, I made my own Year of a Million Dreams come true!

    Thanks for the advice. I definitely have certain priorities straight on what I need to see. First, my mom said, "Go on the stuff we dont have!" Then she told me, "Go on the stuff we have to compare!!!!!!" Ok, that covers, I dont know....EVERYTHING!

    No park hopping. The night i get there (meeting a family friend and another one who is leavingthe next day) and going to Contemporary for dessert. Next morning, we take the other friend to the airport, and I want to see the resort christmas stuff that day (gingerbread house, trees, etc.). Then sunday, it's ON! MK on sun, we'll go throught the parks on by one, and the days left over are for anything we may have wanted to go back over, or anything we missed, Downtown Disney, outlets. i come home the afternoon of the 23rd. YEAH!!!

    Re: Countdown to my first trip to Florida!!!

    My WDW advice

    First, Never fight or argue, let things go and always be the bigger person, say you love them and that you're sorry, even if it is their fault. I hate to see family members saying evil things to each other just to get back at them while inside a Disney theme park.

    Second, Take time to sit down and rest anywhere, socialize and just take in the sounds of your surroundings.

    Third, Why not treat everyone in your party to something edible and something that is new to your taste buds while visiting Epcot's World Showcase. Your friends/family will remember that moment the entire trip, so will their stomachs!

    Fourth, Think about buying a very nice pin and trading it with a child. You'll make their day and make for a great Disney moment. Take a photo of the trade and remember their grand smile.

    Super jealous and can't wait to do WDW Christmas next year!
