  1. We just used the Kid's Nite Out service tonight and thought I would share the experience. The lady from Kid's Nite Out showed up right on time. She had some quick questions about the kids (any allergies, any medications, if they were allowed to watch TV or play on electronics, bed time, meal time, etc.). Our oldest is 11 and does good being helpful so we also told her that. So we gave her our numbers and left for our ADR. We got a text about 30 minutes later from the caregiver says that it was her number and we could contact her if there were any issues. We got another update about an hour later says everything was going good. We got back after 4 hours and 45 minutes. They were all happy and content. She made some notes on what they did and ate on a carbon copy form so we could see and keep one. Our two youngest loved that she brought Barbies to play with them. She also brought some stuff for the kids to make necklaces and the girls made tiaras. The kids seemed very happy with the experience and it was very weird for us to not have the kids for a little while! The service was $29/hr with a 4 hour minimum. Anything over the 4 hours they charge to the next 15 minutes at the same rate. There was a fee for them to travel here, but it must have been reasonable because I don't remember it. They are also allowed to take a tip, but you cannot add it to the fees paid by credit card. They dont need a firm return time so that was nice to not have to rush to make a specific time. Overall a good experience and I think we will keep this as an option on future trips.
  2. I have a Class C and have been looking at TPMS. Any suggestions on an affordable system? Are the external as good as the internal? Leave for the fort in 8 days so I'm not sure I will have one by then.
  3. We have a trip planned for June and were planning on taking our adult niece to help watch our 4 kids and give us an adult night out. She now cannot join us but were looking for a way to salvage our night out to celebrate our 15th anniversary. Has anyone used the Kid's Nite Out service? Anyone have another suggestion to accomplish a night out?
  4. Here is a map I found today. I liked all the coloring on it, seemed to give me a better idea of what it all is. I am wondering since the resorts will practically be the same place, will guests be able to use pools and amenities at both? I do like that it looks like they will have their own bus terminal. https://dvcnews.com/index.php/resorts/reflections/4462-plans-reveal-new-details-on-reflections-resort#prettyPhoto
  5. Is this thread old? On MDE they list late EMH Wednesday night and again the next few Wednesdays.
  6. Does anyone know if this is still the case with Walmart? Another website said Disney will no longer allow Walmart to deliver because they won't allow it to be dropped off in plastic bags. This information was posted sometime in February this year.
  7. We are looking at an upcoming trip and trying to plan our park days. A couple questions came up. 1) Is there still an opening show at the Magic Kingdom and 2) if there are AM extra magic hours, does this change the opening show at all?
  8. My family will be going down in June also. We were looking at the 300 loop. Does the 300 loop have any advantages over the 100 and 200 loops? What made you look at the 300 over the other preferred sites?
  9. We have done grocery pick up before, just not sure our 34' motorhome will fit in the pick up spaces.... 😁
  10. We decided to make it a trip we do every couple years due to the price. We also got the Disney Visa card and for our trip this summer we have enough points to cover our 11 nights and some left over for tickets. There are 6 in our family and we are bringing my adult niece so staying at the fort is the only way it is affordable for us.
  11. We are looking at taking our motor home out for a vacation this year. We live in Iowa and would like to keep it to a max of 2 days travel each way with a week at the destination. We are not set up to tow a vehicle so we have been looking for ideas of places we can visit from a campground on foot, bikes or on site transportation. We have 4 kids ages 2, 4, 7 and 9 when we will be traveling. Here are a couple ideas we have: Washington DC - we have found a campground that has transportation on the city bus system so it would be easy to go visit places from the campground. Six Flags St. Louis - there is a yogi bear campground 1/4 to 1/2 mile for the gate to the park. We would be able to get a season pass really cheap and visit daily if we wanted. We are not set on either of these so please share ideas and experiences!
  12. One thing I noticed when we were in the parks that the upsells were not in my kids face. By this I mean that I never once had to tell my kids we couldn't do something they saw others doing because it cost extra money.
  13. We did a trip in April with 4 kids (8, 5, 3 and 1). We did 8 days at the fort with 7 of those days in the parks. We are looking at our next trip and would like to spend 7 days in the parks but with the kids we are going to do 1:1 ratio of park days vs hanging out at the fort days. We did take advantage of extra magic hours when they were offered so staying in the parks until 1 am was awesome for getting lots of attractions in a short amount of time but it was not fun the next morning heading to another park.
  14. We bought a Class C in 2015. It was a 2013 and only had a couple thousand miles on it. It looked brand new and we paid about 55% retail. Our biggest problem was getting good terms on the loan, apparently my wife and I fall into a high risk category because of our age.
