Thank you all so much!!! You saved me a phone call and some stress!!!
I believe they recently changed this. The princesses were not available at dinner prior to June (it was reserved seating for WOC instead). When Carthay opened, I believe this changed. The princesses are now available at dinner and the reserved WOC seating was shifted to Carthay. - LilSterner 4663.4 #18 1-1-13 12:15PMLikeReply
I just did Ariels grotto at 6pm last night (dinner time) and the Princesses are AVAILABLE! Around 8:00pm when we finished eating, they are there. Like what LilSterner mentioned, the WOC seating is now for Carthay, the princesses at Ariels Grotto is now avail Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner - otilegna 1842.3 #71 1-1-13 12:18PMLikeReply

I haven't heard anything yet in Adventureland. I'm sure after holidays it will change. They wouldn't change it in the middle of the busy holiday season. It didn't happen before so I'm guessing it will happen after. - IDVandalSkipperCM 2204.5 #53 12-31-12 11:41AMLike(1)Reply
Oops that's supposed to say FP as in FastPass!

I also read that this was going to start taking place in January. I've been wondering the same thing if they are going to actually atart enforcing the FP times. - WLAlbright 18.2 #6772 12-31-12 11:24AMLikeReply
We have many great CM members here on MW and if this were to come to fruition, I'm sure they would be among the first to report it to us. - Linzee 896.6 #173 12-31-12 11:28AMLikeReply
Wow thank you everyone!!! U r all awesome! So helpful 4 my upcoming trip! I actually have the sit n stand stroller 4 my kids. My son is 2 and daughter is 6! I want 2 have it 4 my daughter cuz she's actually still really little and get More...
Use whatever stroller is most comfortable for you and your kids. Personally, I'm too tall to push an umbrella stroller and my daughter couldn't recline to sleep...plus there was a huge lack of storage. - Linzee 896.6 #173 12-30-12 9:13PMLike(1)Reply
We have used a double jogging with our 2 girls. It's harder to get through tight crowds, but it's worth it to only have 1 to keep track of. - tikiwhip 205.4 #1816 12-30-12 9:14PMLike(1)Reply
We use a double stroller, but it is not a side by side, so it is just as easy to maneuver as a single stroller. For me , banana strollers are good for short trips, but not too comfortable for a full day at DL! Hope this helps! - 7mouskedoodles 355.0 #587 12-30-12 10:17PMLikeReply
We've tried both ways and we found it was easier to keep track of one stroller. It is easier to keep them together and we've never had a problem maneuvering around the parks. - 2princesses 233.4 #1446 12-30-12 10:28PMLikeReply
Another tip is to edit all your photos and add several different frames/backgrounds to each shot before you order the CD of your pix. I will take approx 100 photos and turn them into 500 by applying various Disney backgrounds in the pix. That way, I can print out or order what I want later on at a much cheaper cost (through Costco, for example) than what Disney sells the prints for. - MeridaFan 3429.8 #29 12-29-12 2:00PMLike(2)Reply
I love using the photo pass photographers! We always get the Photo Pass Plus, too. It includes all the pix from the rides that snap your photo, plus any restaurants like Ariel's Grotto and Goofy's Kitchen where you pose for pix, too. Fun! - MeridaFan 3429.8 #29 12-29-12 9:29AMLikeReply
Best choice we've ever made!! Over 200 pics in four days for 99 bucks! Especially since there are two of us, and usually we'd have pics of locations without us in it or pics of just one of us. (And we hate getting our pics taken or bothering a stranger to snap one!) We even used a pic for our Christmas card this year!! - PeachKay 311.1 #751 12-29-12 12:34PMLikeReply
It's really nice. We did add borders and such to many of the photos. One CM even had my daughter hold her hand out palms up and later tinker bell was added to the photo. It looks great. When we get the disc I'll post that one here. It's really cool. - CheshireCam 197.0 #1911 12-29-12 2:12PMLikeReply
Only bummer is our boys aren't tall enough for the radiator springs racers but our girls are. Makes me sad cuz the boys both LOVE Cars!! My son actually calls it "MaterQueen"!! He puts it together and it's the cutest thing ever! Can we More...
Go straight to radiator Springs at open.. Usually shortest wait them.. Or get in the fast pass line for it then head to toy story.... - sunshinegrl 348.8 #600 12-29-12 1:44AMLike(1)Reply
use mw for times on attraction. so about toy story the wait time is usually abrout 40 minutes even on the slow season.one of the best times to go on it would be during the woc lines can be as low as 10 minutes.radiator racers good average is 60-90 minutes.if you have little ones who cant ride get a parent swap. g to the cm at start of the lin and tell them parent swap please,they will ask hows staying and whos riding.so the party members go in line somebody stays behind with the kids that cannot. when they finish riding the attraction return to the cm with the pass with one other and ride the ride with little to no line. this parent swap works in both dca and dl in attractions that have height requirement and not on rides that an infant get get on like pirates. welcome to mw by the way => - pikarich 3114.3 #34 12-29-12 2:24AMLike(1)Reply
What we do is get a fast pass for RSR and them head to you story since everyone heads to RSR so you story isn't too bad. Then we ride the roller coaster and whatever else back there and then head back to cars land. My kids aren't tall enough for RSR either so we take turns. One stays off with my son and takes him on maters while the rest go on RSR and then we switch. That way my son is entertained at the same time :) I would suggest Peter Pan first thing also or very late at night. That's going to be one of the longest lines all day! - brodysmommy 371.2 #548 12-29-12 8:14AMLikeReply
