Rome

Thu, 2017-07-13 14:14
I know this seems random but I was wondering if anyone had any restaurant recommendations in Rome. (Not GA, like Italy Rome) My parents and I will be there approx. 3 days before hopping on a med cruise and having never been here trip advisor just seems like a vast array of restaurants I know nothing about.

FP+ and traveling with a baby

Thu, 2017-07-13 13:40
With the new FP+, have wait times actually gone up? I was reading a trip report that complained about the waits and technical problems with MDE. We'll be travelling with a group of 6 adults and a baby. Scheduling a FP with a time limit seems like a scary proposition right now.

We will hit the parks early and take turns going back to the hotel at naptime. I'm guessing DH and I (the grandparents!) will stay in the parks until about 4, then head back to babysit evenings. I read about the baby swap, and am trying to figure out how to best utilize that.

With the baby, we need to be able to "play it by ear". Wow, did we pick the wrong vacation for that!

Happy Dance! :)

Thu, 2017-07-13 03:46
Got our preliminary plans set and no BRIDEZILLA showed (well, except for the time I jokingly mentioned one of our family friends should propose during the trip. I managed to don the fireproof suit before the flames spewed forth though. ;))

Now to just wait it out and hope that we can get what we want, and everything falls into place. Which means, I get to start planning my fun for the week after - when everyone goes home and I stay to relax.
