Best towncar service from MCI ??
Sorry, have always used DME out of MCO. - mrsincredible  769.2 #6 6:38PM
ME, rent a car or we get a cab service and the past few years we have used Orlando MTS. - mmddgp  375.2 #18 7:52PM
We have used a Mears shuttle and it was pretty quick. If you have more than 2 people and a toddler it would be more cost effective to use a cab or town car. - kayxobelle  156.4 #48 8:23AM
Agree. We use mears when it's just the two of us but the cab service if it is the 8 of us - mmddgp  375.2 #18 8:45AM
Town car round trip is around $120.00 & you get a 30 min. grocery stop. The car would only seat 4 adults. So with a larger family it would be more for a van or SUV. I just find them cleaner than a cab and usually nicer drivers who usually speak English. - lghr  35.8 #110 2:01PM

How far is it to walk from the closest hotel to the International Gateway? Is it beach club of boardwalk ? I think I'll take a taxi from Pop and enter there since it will be mid afternoon before we can get there. Do they have ECV's there?
Beach is the closest, and I think they have rentals just inside the gate on the left side by the shop. - Andrea84  625.8 #7 10:33AM
It's less than a five minute walk from the Beach Club lobby to the gateway. - Andrea84  625.8 #7 10:35AM
I absolutely love that walk, day and night. Beach Club, Yacht Club and Boardwalk are all right there. - mrsincredible  769.2 #6 11:38AM
Not sure if they have ECV's at the side entrance, maybe someone else knows. - mrsincredible  769.2 #6 11:39AM
Soon you'll be enjoying the run from Beach Club to Epcot! #bottleneck - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  803.2 #3 11:47AM

Do you gals do your marathon run by BC? - disneycm  531.2 #10 1:31PM
Yes, the 12 mile marker is right in front of BC. We will be so ready to be done by then (speaking from personal experience)! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  803.2 #3 2:07PM
Oh cool! I didn't know that. That's where we are staying. πŸ˜€ - disneycm  531.2 #10 2:20PM
Well, it will probably be around 1 am at that point! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  803.2 #3 2:23PM
I was just reading up on the race and saw that. You gals will be up until the wee morning hours. 😳 - disneycm  531.2 #10 3:05PM
Probably will be in a hurry so will do the taxi to beach club. Our flight from Atlanta is at 10:30 am. So I hope to be checked in at Pop by 1:30. We have dinner res at LeCellierat 5:30. Thanks for the information - lghr  35.8 #110 7:36PM
Beach club is closest BUT if you want an ECV go to boardwalk right in the back of the hotel on the boardwalk is an ECV rental right across from boat to EPCOT, they are cheaper to rent their than at the park, if you need it a couple days, much more convenient too. I hurt my foot last Oct and learned about this place. Once you rent their you get a discount if you need to rent again. - Betsyboo  17.2 #163 6:33AM

Does anyone know if there is a CD available for sale of the music & choir at the Candlelight Processional? I love the whole program especially "What Child is This".
I think there is and what child is this is one of my favorites also. - mmddgp  375.2 #18 8:31PM

I need some opinions.....The Plaza at MK?? LeCellier at Epcot?? Lunch at Tusker House at AK?? Do you really like these or do you dislike and why ?
La Cellier was our favorite restaurant of our entire 10 day trip! - GrimGrinningAmanda  660.1 #237 6:49AM
I love lunch at Tusker House! The food is amazing and there are characters in safari wear! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  803.2 #3 6:58PM
Out of the 3 I would pick tuskar. We had dinner there and the food was really good. We also had breakfast which was character the food was great (jamba juice amazing) but I felt rushed with the characters - mmddgp  375.2 #18 8:38PM

My Disney Experience had been useless for me when trying to make dining res. I've had to go online or call for the last 3 days. I got one res at about 7 am Monday. And it hasn't worked since. I hope it works better for FP+ and in the parks for making changes and more fast passes. I'm just happy I have got mostly what I wanted. I just hope all the kinks are resolved by Dec.
If you have issues with it in the parks, be sure to call WDW. I was frustrated with it the first day or two of our trip (in March). Then, I called, and something was wrong with my account. Once I called, the problem was fixed, and then it worked great! Good luck with the rest of your planning! - BagGal  221.4 #31 2:47PM
Thats a bummer... For me, i do not have any issues with it at all! (Dining ressies i did went through properly, fp+ ressies went smooth). I just make sure i have a good internet connection! - otilegna  1746.4 #67 3:28PM
So sorry! I never had an issue with them in the planning stages. I love it for dinning. It was also good when we booked our FPs in march for 2. We will see in a couple weeks how it goes for 8. It was slow in the parks to pull up info tho - mmddgp  375.2 #18 5:29PM
I don't do FP til Oct 7. Maybe all will be well by then with My Disney Exp. When I log in to it, all my ressies do show up!!! βœ¨πŸ’«πŸŒŸ - lghr  35.8 #110 2:17PM
Oh and I think that when you use your original 3 you actually have to go to a kiosk to add the next - mmddgp  375.2 #18 3:10PM

If i do not want to see the afternoon parade at MK, where should I be and when to be able avoid the crowds and be able to ride rides? I always seem to get caught up and can't move until the parade is over.
Depends on what you want to ride! It starts in frontier land at three so from Splash mtn or rr you can take the walkway along water to HM and into fantasy land into tomorrow land. I would be where ever you want to be at least 1/2 before - mmddgp  375.2 #18 2:18PM

Who has ridden Seven Dwarfs? Are the seats very low and would be difficult for someone with bad knees to get out of?
Great question! - Pooh147856  163.4 #46 9:17AM
The seats are not too low but they are pretty small with individual seats and individual lap bars. If you are the second person to get into the car it would be a little easier. - Andrea84  625.8 #7 9:37AM
Ok thanks. I can't ride Space mt anymore, seats are so low. EE and Big Thunder are ok but I had heard that the seats on 7Dwarfs were small. πŸ™€ - lghr  35.8 #110 1:07PM
I've rode it on cast preview the seats are ok and not to low but the basket to put stuff is little so you can't put a backpack just small stuff .. - Disneymom36  62.4 #82 2:36PM

Question..... I know I'm not getting free dining during my trip Dec 6-11. If I purchase the dining plan, can they just add it to my existing reservation? Or do I have to make a new one? And should I buy the dining plan? I'm going with a 22 yr old grandson who likes to eat well.
I've never done the dining plan, but I believe they can add it to your existing reservation. Usually I would say its too much food to pay extra for. But, if you're bringing a growing boy who likes to eat...it's probably worth considering! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  803.2 #3 6:20PM
We did the dining plan with our daughter and 5 grandchildren. It was worth it to us to be able to let everyone eat what they wanted, try what they wanted and not worry about the cost of the meal. It was free for us, but I would pay for it in the future. It's so nice to not have to worry over money when it's already factored in. - ally  506.0 #11 6:25PM
I'll probably let him make the decision. I get to make res. June 9. - lghr  35.8 #110 5:44AM
I just added the dining plan to my existing reservation. I love that about Disney! You can decide to go and make your reservations and then tweek it along the way until it's exactly what you want..without penalty. - brittandkell  347.9 #583 6:11AM

Do u get magic bands in the mail before time to make FP reservations ? You need the number on the bands right?
No, you book FP+ 60 days out and the MagicBands arrive later. You just need to log into My Disney Experience. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  803.2 #3 7:30PM
I was reading on Touring Plans that you have to have a valid admission ticket confirmation number for everyone in your group and your hotel reservation #. - lghr  35.8 #110 7:41PM

I'm not sure if there are instructions on the website or not. It's pretty straight forward. If you are that concerned, I recommend just calling (407) WDW-DINE and letting them take care of it for you. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  803.2 #3 12:19PM
