    ok.. I guess I will just start by putting down my ideas.... please feel free to put down ANYTHING you think Ive missed, or anything which you think I should include.

    At the moment it will be Me, Toño and Tatiana, who will be around 18 months old...

    Hotel: The Temporary.... that is.... if its still there... Dawn,, what do you think are our chances??? hahahaha....
    why? I want to stay close to MK, because I have a feeling thats where we will be spending most of our time, and I love the fact that its within walking distance from the park... I also like the idea of not having to travel in the wee hours of the morning for Chef Mickeys... hahahaha.....
    But, I was thinking staying IN the main tower.....

    Things to do: Im open for ALL suggestions, I have no idea which characters she will be into in 8 months time, so no clue there right now... One thing I DO want to do is get her hair cut at the MK barber shop...

    Stroller: We have a Quinny Zapp... its light, easy to fold, and comfortable but it doesnt recline.... my parents have a MacLAren triumph, which does recline a bit.... which one do you think I should take? or would it be better if we rented one at the parks???

    well.. thats all I can come up with so far.....

    Take the reclining stroller - baby diva will need to nap, and maybe more than normal. The park strollers are hard and look uncomfortable for smaller children.

    Think you'll be safe with the Temporary. :D

    Are we talking a summer trip? Make sure the sun protection for Tatiana is comprehensive - stroller cover, hat, sunblock, you name it, make sure she has it.

    We're talking.... either september or november... hoping the crowds wont be as bad as they are during the summer...

    I also had the idea that park strollers were very hard... but I have never actually used them.... hahahaha

    November would be better weather wise I guess. September can be very humid and is in hurricane season. Though I've no idea what you are used to in Mexico. :D

    The baby always rests better in the stroller they are used to.

    If you come the last week of August though you'll get to meet me, Johnie, Annie, and Dizneyblond (and assorted kids and significant others) :D

    We'll babysit for you and while I know it's a tough job, someone will just have to do it :D:D:D

    OMG!!! A new trip to plan!!!!

    18 months, huh? Biggest piece of advice? Don't be surprised if she's TERRIFIED of the "big heads" :wink: You might want to ease into it with "face" characters such as the princesses and such....

    Defo recommend a character breakfast...they seem a bit calmer and laid back...she can sort of have them on "her terms."

    I'd vote for September/October. Parks are quiet, humidity is good, weather is still warm and there is the food and wine festival at Epcot and MNSSHP, there might be free dining, I don't know if it has been advertised for US yet, I've lost track. Oh and the other thing is Chris and I will be there then as well :D so will Johnie, Becca and hopefully Mr and Mrs Slowhand :D
