Just thought I'd post and reintroduce myself as I can see I'm going to be using this forum a lot over the next year or so.

I popped in last year and got some help choosing when to plan our 2010 trip to WDW and now I'm gearing myself up for the serious planning and booking stage :yay: So I've spent the last few weeks reading through all the old threads and learning lots:worship:

This will be my first family trip to WDW with my DP and our two children DD7 & DS6 (although they will be 8 & 7 by the time we go). I've been to WDW once before back in 1994, but that was a totally unplanned trip...well I had planned to go but all I did was turn up at Fort Wilderness with a tent and buy a ticket...no pre-planning at all:scared1: Of course that was back in the dark ages pre-computer days so no resources like this available then anyway!:rotfl:

So far I have decided on dates (14 nights starting around 20th October 2010) and staying onsite at a value resort...thinking probably Movies due to the theming and the age of my children. I have looked at packages but think I'll probably go down the DIY route if I can get a good price for flights.

So that's me if you see me posting and asking questions over the next year or so.

Luv Suzy

Lol! Wish I was going then. Our next WDW trip will hopefully be October for Halloween but unfortunately it won't be 2010. :(

Haha, I think I'd be the same to be honest! I'm sure they'll be just as excited being able to join in and show you things they'd like to try out! :wizard:

I love all the planning and getting the children all excited about it before hand is all part of the fun :cheer2:

Although, saying that, one day I might spring a Disney suprise on them. This summer when we were driving around Paris on our way to the south I spotted a Disney sign and did wish we had planned a couple of days at Disney on our way down or on the way back. So maybe the next time we head down to the South of France I'll spring a suprise visit to DLRP on them :cool1:

Welcome:flower3:

October is my favourite time to visit Florida - the weather is lovely, all the Halloween celebrations and decorations are out and it's a little quieter than summer.

Happy planning:surfweb:

Hello Everyone:wave2:

I am hoping that the weather in October (last 2 weeks) will be right for us. DD & DS need it hot enough to go swimming/water parks etc, but DP can't stand it if it's too hot. He moans if the temp is over 28C and can't function if it goes above 30C. :sad2:

Obviously hoping that the crowds are not too high so that we won't have to spend hours in long queues. I'll be checking nearer the time for strategies to beat the queues, but does anyone know where I can find the info that I've heard people talk about that tells you how busy the parks are each week?

Luv Suzy
