Welcome! What a great picture!

We stay at hotels that offer complementary breakfast. I tend to favor Springhill Suites. They offer eggs, waffles, bacon , biscuits/gravy. Changes everyday. Plus the rooms are larger. They have a couch area that has a hideabed. You can look online for details. They are Marriot, so earn rewards for future stays.  - Sugarbuzz  193.1 #1990 9:37AM

Awesome !!! We have five kiddos and we have done AP with our kids for almost 10 years. Welcome Β°oΒ°Stay somewhere like Embassy Suites and have a full breakfast there. Waking up early is worth it and you will save $$$.If you plan to stay for two or more days stock up on food before hand and have pool time at the hotel.This will help with food costs and give any little ones you have a chance to nap without the older ones feeling like they are waiting.You can bring any food or drink into the park that you can walk and eat so take advantage of that and the cooler sized lockers just outside of guest services on the DL side to store those items.Don't forget ponchos for water rides who wants to take a big group back to the hotel ;) Sandals with a back strap that are comfy and will dry.With out group of 7 we take lots of photos and have the kids collect buttons from shops around the park it's fun and free. Pressed coins are a great scavenger hunt and another great way to have collectors items for them to keep as well.Jus some things we have done over the years with our kids making magical memories.

Don't pay for water most restaurants will give you a cup for free, with or without purchase.  There is also a pass for parents with small children for switching places to get on rides.  - bbboldgirl1  6.4 #13770 7:31PM

I like the one at Fashion Show, but I have heard the outlet on the south strip has good deals.

Meadows mall will have the smallest crowds. Outlet mall has some good deals right now. - Itsallabouteeyore  38.8 #4947 1:06AM
I think the Fashion Show Mall has a nice store. The best deals are at the Disney store at the Premium Outlets.  - AngieC  234.8 #1460 1:07AM
I don't live there but we go often. The one in the outlets is cheap but it's not very cute haha (unless they've updated it in the last 9 months). - MellieKay  162.9 #2436 8:50AM
So many decisions. I think we will go to the south one for sure. We have to be there to go get our "new truck," and then to the airport to drop off the rental car. Then try to get to one of the others later in the day. Thanks so much for all the input.  - Sugarbuzz  193.1 #1990 8:54AM

Maybe let her lurk for a  year or until you feel she can handle the adult talk. Sometimes we joke at at a misspelled word or an old joke or something and some of the young ones took it as people making fun of them. Maybe let her lurk then build up to a post when you all go to the parks one day.  - secretagentangel  1555.1 #94 1:56AM

That's just crazy.  Stay safe, everyone!

If you are on Harbor, the chance of getting in is very slim. Once you get past the entrance of the resort, there's more people waiting. At this rate, they won't get in until 12 or 1am. And remember, us CMs are people too :) - BaseballMickey_CM  6965.0 #9 8:04PM
