Planning for the last week in August.
It's been three years since we have went. I lucked out and got the Fairytale package back then. Here's hoping for a code and no hurricanes this year

We'll be at the Poly from 8/24-8/31. We went the same time in 2004 (Thursday-Thursday, not exact same dates.) Crowds were very light and we really lucked out with the weather (sandwiched between hurricanes). We're hoping for the same luck this time (without the hurricanes). It was HOT! but I'll take heat in place of crowds any day!

We will be at Saratoga Springs, Aug 13-18. There will be 12 or more of us. I'll take heat over crowds too, so I'm hoping crowds arent bad.

DH & I are going August 20- Sept 1, 2006. Going to celebrate our wedding anniversary on our own (as in , we will not have other family members planning a "party" for us this time for the first time since we married) for our 5th. 8/20-8/24 at BWV, 25th (our actual anniv) & 26th at either Poly or POFQ (that's the first resort we stayed at together in our 10 trips as man & wife) then OKW or WLV 8/27-9/01. We are really looking forward to this trip! We are going to go to Seaworld for the first time one of our days. DH wants to ride those rollercoasters and I want to see the shows. Not looking forward to the heat, but we are looking forward to all that time there!

Have sooooo much fun all you August travelers. I went Aug 28th - Sept 4th 2005 and it was AWESOME!!!!!! Absolutely NO crowds and really good weather. We only used fast passed for Soarin'. Everything else was walk on. The only down side to our vacation was that New Orleans was being ravaged by Katrina and people were starving while we were living "high on the hog" with the free dining plan. The outside world was not very magical that week.

I am a little concerned since the august operating hours are out, they seem longer than the past few years, and does that mean they are expecting large crowds? Anyone else get this feeling? I know august earlier is still crowded, just hoping not july crowded. ;)

We are in the 140;s finally!!!!!!!!!!!!

Would you all reply to my "August Poll" thread? I am curious to see when everyone is going and it's easy to see in chart form (I must be part-visual learner :teeth: ). What can I say.........I love charts! :teacher: :p The link is in my signature. Thank you everyone. :wave2:

We are going the last week of August and staying at the ASM. Being from Canada we had originally planned on going Feb. 2007 to beat the winter blahs but when the free dining promotion came out .... well we jumped at it. I went to WDW for only ONE day to the MK as a child and DH went once as a child also - although he has no memories of his visit - haha. I can remember the day vividly. We both went for one night/day when our DD was only 9 months old. I have been wanting to return for soooooooooo long and now that I finally am I'm just dying with excitement. I'm driving my DH, DD14, DD12 crazy with my enthusiasm. They all just roll their eyes at me. I am so glad to have found DIS board but of course now that I have I'm addicted to it. I have already made reservations for Cindy's, Hoop-Dee-Doo and the Fantasmic package, Coral Reef and Chef Mickeys. OH I just can't wait - the downside to this trip is that I am rushing away my summer. Did I mention I have our whole week planned out? Heheh. Can you tell I'm excited???? :cheer2: :yay: :yay: :yay:

I'll be there with 3 friends. We need a "mom's time out" trip without our husbands and kids.

August 11 - 16th Grand Floridian

Anyone else doing the Segway tour Monday the 14th? If you're not...you may want to stay out of the WS just to be safe! ;)


Under 115 days! :sunny:

We had originally planned to be there next week and had to cancel! :sad2: The good news is that we rebooked for August and now have free dining! :thumbsup2 I have to rebook our ADRs and start planning again but that is no problem! We have never been there in August and I am a bit worried about hurricanes and heat. On the plus side, hopefully the crowds will be light. Can't wait!! :goodvibes
