I think you'll all have a wonderful time. Sorry to hear about your DD, but I think Disney is a great place to forget your troubles and have a grand time!

I can relate to being excited. I think your family will enjoy it. Congrats on your daughter doing better. Hope all goes well.

Welcome Tink -
Here's to having lots to celebrate on your Disney Vacation :thumbsup2

We will actually be at WDW around the same time as you. We are arriving on Dec 1st and are staying at Shades of Green, which is the military hotel.

The best place, besides the internet to find Disney helpful information are a few books: The Unofficial Guide to WDW and the Passporter. Both of these books offer information on the best days to go to the various parks and all the information you could ever want. The Passporter also has space in the back for you to record information about each day. We used this for our DD's first trip and recorded all the events of the days. It's great!

You're going during a slower time of the year (except for the Thanksgiving day/weekend), so you'll have plenty of time to see everything.

Enjoy Enjoy Enjoy!

thanks for that phantom728!!
are you doing mvmcp ?

03-29-2006, 10:16 AM
Welcome!! We'll be there at similar times. We're leaving on 11/15. There is just a ton of information out there about WDW. I was very intimidated about it all at first. Just take your time and have fun planning!! :)

Hi Tink - we are definitely planning on doing the MVMCP one night while there. We've never been over the holiday season and I'm looking forward to seeing snow on Main St USA :teeth: From what I've seen it's a blast, so it should be a great time. We'll have to watch for the posting of dates and times for when they are doing this. I believe they are announced during late summer, so we have a few months to wait.

Hope everything turns out alright!! Have a magical trip!! :thumbsup2
