Okay...this is hilarious. We are at Disney World this week. LOL I probably won't go again. We have Dollywood about an hour away and the lines here are crazy. It is expensive and there haven't been many rides at the parks we have been to so far. We have gone to hollywood studios and animal kingdom so far. Hollywood studios was a complete bust. Danny hated it. Animal Kingdom was better but I had to reassure him several times that this or that wasn't real because he would get scared. He LOVED the Finding Nemo musical though. It was awesome.
BTW...you have to wait in line for up to an hour to get autographs from the characters. They mark off the line and won't let you close to the character unless you get in line, then they take your picture and rush you on. That is tone thing that aggravates me. Danny really wants to see Mickey and we have waited in line 3 times and they have swapped out characters before we got to the front of the line everytime. We are still going to a water park, magic kingdom, and epcot so I will let you know how those go.
It takes SO much planning, but there are a couple helpful resources... first handicapped children go to the front of the line (or so is Disney's policy) for all rides (no idea about characters) and you can find online sites dedicated to tracking the best days to go so that it's not crowded. We're going next year and it's a lot of planning, but I think it's going to be really worth it We're a bit in the air though, because there will be so many rides that my girls can't do (cause they're so young) we're thinking a good alternative would be a Disney cruise

I've been to both Disney World and Disney Land a couple times. Actually liked Disney Land better. We've never taken the girls. Rick hates roller coasters. But maybe it's time to go....maybe spring break. (if we can find the money)
Magic Kingdom was AWESOME!!! The water park was pretty cool too. We went to Typhoon Lagoon. Epcot was okay. They had a Nemo section which was pretty much the only thing Danny liked. We LOVED magic kingdom though. Yes, kids with disabilities go to the front of the line for rides, but not for characters. If I go back I will get 2 days at Magic Kingdom unless I have only older kids. The older kids can enjoy the other parks a lot and can enjoy Magic Kingdom as well. We will see what happens. I will post pictures after I get home.
