Plenty of schedules

Who knew that you could spend days, weeks, even months planning your Disney vacation? Apparently there are things that need to be planned exactly 180 days in advance, like character meals etc. We won't do any of those, but I can't imagine calling at 7am on the dot, 6 months before the vacation. The advantage of our off-season trip (no, the kids don't have vacation, but they are in kindergarten and first grade) is that the parks should be less crowded.

I subscribed to this really cool program Ridemax, that helps you plan out your days at the parks. It tells you which rides to do first, and where to get the fastpasses. They also have a lot of 'secrets' and other useful tips. After doing all of this, it makes me wonder how anyone can have fun/do it all, without the planning. The main difference is that I will never wait more than 15 minutes for any ride. That should help with the fun level.

We'll be at Disney for 5 days. Each day we go to a different park, except Friday, when we go to the Magic Kingdom again. We usually go home for naps and lunch, to rejuvinate. The only day we won't do that is when we go to the Animal Kingdom. That park closes earlier (5pm) so you have to cram everything in one sitting.

Anyways, just wanted to update everyone why I haven't written much lately. Also looking at a new video camera on ebay, and souvenirs on outlet stores (so I don't have to pay $25 per T-shirt at the park)

The more I read the more jealous I become. Can you pack me in your suitcase? Hope the chaos of planning eliminates the chaos once there!
