I would expect the lines to go something like this (from longest to less long):

1. Soarin' Over California
2. California Screamin'
3. Tower of Terror
4. Grizzly River Run
5. Monsters, Inc.
6. Mulholland Madness

The rest should be negligible, or at least, always have been for me.

It's been a while since I'd have been able to utilize singles lines, but if my memory serves, no, there aren't any.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, of course...

Hotwire is my personal favorite for airfare, though I keep an eye on Farecast.com, too.

Also use mousesavers, Disney.com, and others. I'll look anywhere for a deal!

Just bought the plane tickets today (got $99 each, round trip, incl. fees, from SFO to LAX!) and the countdown stands at 24 days, 7 hours, 39 minutes and counting until takeoff!

The Ghost Host may sound a bit scary, but he's hardly a villain. He's a tour guide!

My vote is for Captain Hook... I have a soft spot for pirates...

BTW, the villainness of Snow White is usually referred to as "the Wicked Queen."

The first six rides on my list are usually accomplished in the first hour we're at the park. There are no lines in fantasyland first thing in the morning.

Ohhhhhh my! OTHER OTHER OTHER!

How could you not include the cream-cheese filled Mickey-shaped pretzels from Coke Corner?! HOLY FRIJOLE!

Although, a good Dole Whip Float is a close second for me.

On the other side of this, I found the BoardWalk Inn to be a bit lacking in decorations. Across the water, the Beach and Yacht Clubs looked much more festive (though perhaps this was a grass-is-always-greener moment for me...)

Hehe this was exactly my intention in taking them :D

If they really are bringing a second upgrade to the XT line (XT -> XTi -> XTs) I may have to pick one up. Still love my XT though.

Not sure if I answered this thread already or not, but my last time was last May, for our honeymoon, but my wife got violently ill. We're going back friends (incl. esteed) in 61 days!

Hmmmm... maybe the randomness excludes Disney fanatics? I don't know... haven't been to DL since it started, but have been to WDW several times. Nada. Actually, the fact that people who go more often do not seem any more likely to win is evidence of the contest's true randomness. Going more days in...

Wow, my wife and I had a very, very different experience there. Slow service, bland food. There are at least four far, far superior dining options on property (Napa Rose, Catal, Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen, Granville's (I think it's Steakhouse 55 now)) and Hook's Pointe is NOT cheap. I could never ...
