8 days until I'm at the World! Couldn't have come at a better time either. Life has been way too stressful lately.

As per usual with me, I have nothing ready. I need to print out menus for my menu binder, press penny checklist, mark off the ones I already have, find my extra vinyls and pins for trading, pack, etc. My grand accomplishment thus far is I have bought 3/4 memory cards I will need. :lol:

glad you are going to be able to relax (maybe?) when you are there. Maybe throw in an extra memory card, just to be safe ;) What is your menu binder? To choose what you would like to eat before you get to the restaurant?

I agree when we were there in February people were queued across the bridge from 10am to get in for lunch. I am sure dinner is slightly different as it is reservation only but if it is something you really want to do book well in advance.

Gaston's tavern in a walk in mostly drinks although they do a few snacks and of course the lamb shank.

I might be wrong, but I think Europeans get better travel deals than we have access to...at least on bigger packages like that. I would guess the free dining is the same deal we can get right now here in the states though.

Amy may well be right about the packages, however we did check out the wdw website for holidays and they were showing the same deals but for selected dates.

Have a great time! I spent 2 nights at the Caribbean Beach a few years back and had no complaints.

It just seems like you might get a bit of a break on tickets and also having a gift card included ~ but since I haven't ever booked through a travel agency, I don't know for sure.

Caribbean Beach is really nice if you can get a building close to the lobby. I recommend Martinique if you can make it a preference. If you get far away it can really change your experience.
