Is it possible to post a link to the picture of the town name in MA? Seeing is believing and I have got to see this one!!!

I think Annette has been in 142 episodes.

So, OK, I suppose Annette is now a regular. I suppose. :-)

Multiple ADRs
Authored by: jcodirewolf on Wednesday, August 12 2009 @ 09:01 AM CDT
So having JUST done this. You don't have to be sly or anything to make multiple overlapping ADRs. I used the online system yesterday to make overlapping ADRs for an upcoming trip, both where in my cart at the same time. The ONLY thing that happened was it showed me a warning that my ADRs overlapped. But I didn't have to use 2 email/phones or anything. The system clearly knows I made reservations at Chef Mickey's and Crystal Palace with 30 minutes of each other.

Now everyone put down the pitchforks and torches. At the time we are doing this our party will be 10 people, it's 2 reservations for 5. Everyone can get what they want, assuming there isn't a large shift from one to the other.

For the same upcoming trip I made 2 ADRs that overlapped since Mama Melrose at the time didn't have availability but later it did (and that overlapping one I did call and cancel.)

Chris from Illinois' blog (mentioned near the end of the show) is http://blogdumush.blogspot.com/.

His comments about the recent podcasts (referred to by Newell) can be found near-ish the bottom of the home page.

For the next 3 months he has a poll about which Disney Podcasts people regularly listen to (on the right-hand side).

At the minute, it's a close heat between WDW Today, Running to the Magic, and something called WDW Radio Show, whatever that is.

Free Dining is still a better deal for my family of 5, than Buy-4-Get-3-Free and purchasing Dining, by about $300. I know everyone knocks Free Dining, but is the only way for our family, who only goes to WDW ONCE a year, and likes Dining. We like to eat at a sit down restaurant once a day, to take a break and relax, AND do not want to eat counter service meals all week long. An annual pass is not an option, so this is the best money saving deal for us, especially since one of our kiddies is now an "adult" at 10.

I have ran the numbers multiple times and it is the best deal for us. I also priced the reduced room only packages, and free dining was still a better deal.
Thanks for the shoutout

Park Bag - I highly reccommend the Overland Donner. I am Pooh Sized and thie strap on this bag is easily adjustable so it can be slung across the body. It has two mesh pockets, one on each side, that we use to carry 2 24oz bottles of water. I carry water, my Passporter, camera, cell phone, small sunscreen, band aids, excedrin, and chewable Pepto in my bag easily without a lot of extra weight. On many rides I do not need to take the bag off, and when I do, it fits easily in the storage areas of the ride. These bags can usually be found at a discount at the Sierra Trading Post website, REI Outlet, and E-bags.
