The one thing I could also see is if you like eating out and really can't pull you away from it, many places have meal deals or specials during the week. For example, one of my favorite places, Buffalo Wild Wings, has reduced priced wings on Tuesdays and free Children's meals on Wednesdays. While its better to just cut the whole thing out, resturants are feeling the bad economy too and are willing to give you great deals as well.
As an idea for future recommendations, maybe we should create a "Bang for your Buck" list at the various parks. In other words, what places to eat and things to do worth it without spending too much money.

I enjoyed reading the article but there was no “real meat” to her answers…. Just my opinion, so don’t be frustrated bob…..
Published: November 17, 2009 at 12:22 PMHey, we live in a world with widely available, affordable sunblock, yet millions of Britons fry to a crispy crimson each year in Florida theme parks - theme parks where the most popular question is "what time us the 3 o'clock parade?"
In other words, I never assume that folks know what they need - or if they do, that they will act on it. Many do, but some don't. :-)

I'm off to cut out a picture of Manta...
Published: November 17, 2009 at 11:35 AMFor my last trip and because I was writing a report on the Boardwalk, I went to Disneyparks.com to see what was really there in regards to information. I must say that I have never seen so much information on WDW going so far as repeating themselves two maybe three times. I even called in and personalized my call by making me answer questions about when was the last time I was there, how many times I have been there, etc.
And yet we still see the families who have not idea how fastpass work or when the 3pm parade starts.
