    Ok 7 days and counting :eek:hyes: So now comes the payback for all the help and advice I have taken from the group---Is there anything particular that I can check on for anyone?
    I can't promise that I will be able to manage all (if there is a big list) but I would like to offer to at least try and gather any information first hand if I can. I have my list of items to bring back for the rest of the family...I can easily add some questions to my list and try to get them answered. I won't have access to a computer while on vacation, but I will post either to the group or by pm and let you know what I found out.
    Thanks to you all again for making planning a bit easier to do.

    As many pictures as you can get of the new Fantasyland. But I'm sure that is on your list anyway.

    Can you see if there are any expected opening dates for the stuff in MK that are still under construction/ being refurbed (both dates for 2012 and 2013)?

    Also, unless somebody can answer without going to WDW, when shipping home items purchased in shops in WDW, can you save up purchases over the duration of your holiday and then ship them together? If so, is this less expensive than shipping items individually?

    I will see if I can get any time frames out of Cast Members about attractions that are due to open or that are on refurb. I'll have to ask at a shop about shipping...its a great question as I know you have to have your purchases delivered to your resort each day, but Im not sure if the resort would hold and ship a full vacation's worth or if the shops would have to do that. It's on my list of to do's

    I'm back...and I may have some answers ( I hope) Dates for Fantasyland are pending....varying from Sept of 2013 to Sping 2014...there will be soft openings along the way. Right now the new Dumbo is a single Dumbo (the double Dumbo...number 2 is under a "Big Top" and is not operating yet).
    I asked a few cast members in Guest Services and at package pick-up...they all agree that in general it is less expensive to ship a single package then to sending several pakages. This depends on weight/size and destination...but usually one shipment is going to be less expensive.

    I checked with the Cast Member at the Test Track ...the expected time frame is Fall of 2013 (they suggested September, but that is only a suggested time).

    Can you check to see if the Orange Bird is at Sunshine Terrace in MK? I read somewhere that he is greeting people, if you happen to see him, a picture would be awesome! Only if it is convenient though, of course :)
