You guys are in for a fabulous time!!! It is awsome there. You do become a kid yourself. I suggest keep reading these threads. They helped me out allot when I went for the first time in 2006 and now we're going back in June of 2008. Good luck with the plans and all...

Have a great trip... Everyone will love it!!!

Congratulations! I have goose bumps being so excited for you all. Once you get there, you'll see why so many of us are addicted. CSR is where we stayed our last trip and we loved it there. Make sure you ask for a "first trip" pin at the concierge desk when you check in. Both of my boys wore their pins every day the week we were there - they didn't want to take them off.

Enjoy getting ready! That's part of the fun!

Hey, my husband is from Yukon, Oklahoma!!! He graduated from Yukon High School in 1991. I've been there to visit my in-laws more times than I care to count. Are you a big Sooner fan like he is?

Congrats on your upcoming first trip to Disney -- that is wonderful!

Oh Boy as my friend Mickey Mouse says. Have a blast. We have stayed at Coronado before you will love it. When you ride the monorail ask to sit up front with the driver. Have fun!!!:banana:

Will they really let you do that? I have a 6 year old daughter that would love that.

Have a great time, we will be there around the same time as you.

Make sure you stop by guest services at the MK and ask for a first time visitor pin. It is a nice momento to have.

Enjoy the magic, I know I will I feel like a kid everytime we go.

Yes they let you do that. All you have to do is ask. You might have to wait if someone has asked before you, but it would not be much of a wait until the next monorail comes around.

Okay - so you know about Dole Whips (the best treat in the park) and first time visitor pins. One of the best (and cheapest) souvenirs is straight through the castle, first shop on your right after you exit. You can go in there, pick up a pair of mouse ears and be delighted and amazed as they sew your name on right then and there. On the bridge between Main Street and Tomrorow land is a great spot for a photo. You'll see it; it's marked as a photo spot with the castle in the background. Off that walkway is a great little-used path for a break from the crowds. If you decide to eat in one of the resorts, breakfast at the Kona Cafe is great (Order Tonga Toast or Pineapple Macadamia pancakes) but if a character meal is what you want, then you can do the one at O'Hana and still ask for either of the two great breakfast treats from Kona - they'll bring it to you. Don't be shy about telling cast members it's your first visit either - they'll make it special in all kinds of ways.

Need a great place (IMO) to see Wishes? We like sitting at the tables outside of the bakery area or at the table by the Noodle Station. The view is mostly unobstructed...maybe a few trees at in the way of the castle, but after a long day, a nice seat beats the ground. We liked watching Spectro in Frontierland. We sat on the porch near Country BEars. We also liked watching the 3:00 parade by the walkway to Splash Mountain. The parade begins right there!
Remember to bring some crystal light mix ins if you want to save some $ on drinks...just ask for a free cup of ice water at any CS.

I guess you're almost on your way...I'm jealous! We have to wait until Aug! HAve a great trip!
