I will try the early check in first (if need be), worst they can do is say no.   I think the year I tried it was Thanksgiving, so that may have added to the crowd issue.   Crystal Palace & 'Ohana are generally in demand places, so you just never know.

It is nice that it is close to the carousel, that line usually moves fast.   I remember one year they had someone in the area with bubble guns, I have pics of my DDs post BBB/pre CRT running around as princesses trying to catch the bubbles.  It was sweet.   So you are right again on the photo ops.  :smileyhappy:    And, I would rather have too much time than stressing.   BBB can be really bad at times as far as waits.

It doesn't look so bad to me. Next time we go to Branson (planning for December)- we're staying at the Southern Oaks Inn. It's a place similar to this that we saw on HGTV on one of those Hotel makeover shows. We usually stay at a "name brand" place but we're going to give this place a try to support the family that owns it. Just think about how you are probably putting money in the pockets of the family who runs it. :smileyhappy:

Yea, I wouldn't choose it either but since they are staying there I would too. I think you will have fun, no matter where you stay. :smileyhappy:

I would want to want to bring all the kids too and Mom would be helpful and I bet she would enjoy the competition. :smileyhappy:

That makes perfect sense to me. Sounds like D might have been bored anyway.

They did?  I'll have to go look.  They really were out last week when I looked - but if someone says they are now out, I bet they changed something.  Or at least there are a couple of days I hope they changed.  

Thank you dear TA - I'm off to look!

I was just on the DIS and I saw someone say they "released" them yesterday. ???? Maybe they just noticed them yesterday. :smileywink:

Kim, if someone on disboards posted they just released them - I would think Disney had them up, then pulled them down - then put them back up.  Would not be the first time they have done that.    I had looked on the 7th - just because I was fidgety while waiting to hear about our ADRs, so I know they had them up at that time.    I was hoping they had MK opened a little longer on 3/6th - but it's still only until 8:00 pm.   The crowd level predictor has MK at a really low #, so I guess that may be enough.  We get there at noonish, and have dinner ADRs for 6:30.   Since we have a sunrise safari the next morning - staying out late wouldn't be all that wise for m kids anyhow.

Tawnya - YAY.  I would love to hear about Tusker House lunch.   OOOOOOH.  Since they now have characters I wonder if I should have booked that instead of Yak & Yeti for our lunch!   HA!  I've not had my ADRs for a whole week and questioning myself has already begun.  BTW, LOVE your ticker!!
