I always enjoy all your posts.
But your ‘NEXT WEEK AT DISNEY WORLD’ one is especially special when I’m finally going back to WDW NEXT WEEK!!!!!!
WOOOO HOOOO!!!!!!

Jeff I’m glad to know SOMEONE reads “Next Week”! Have a great visit. These “Next Week” posts, while not widely useful (except for those going next week!) are a great way for me to keep my finger on the pulse of operations, and gain a sense of what is normal, and what is not. I have years of them saved, so it’s easy for me to go back and find out how things were the same week a few years ago.

Even though I only visit once a year, I also always find it interesting to keep track of the hours WDW keeps.
