8 Parks in 9 months aka my 1st attempt at a trip report (with part one deleted) III

Hi all!
Welcome to the final chapter of our 8 parks in 9 months trip report! To recap, our cast is me, Alyssa, my DH Mike, and our DS, Joel. We're longtime WDW AP holders (since 2002), and DVC members since 2004. We've been waiting for DVC to open up at DL, and we're very excited to be visiting the GCV! We also haven't been to DL since 2006, so we've been ready for a trip back.
Our first 4 parks were WDW back in January, which was a trip of mishap after mishap. Our next 2 parks was our trip to DLP in June, which was cut short because Joel was sick We're really hoping for an uneventful trip come September- uneventful in that no one gets sick, spazzes out, loses jewelry or runs away!
Here's part II of the report!
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2439987
Anyway, we're just over 3 months away! The flights are booked, as is a car rental (which I'm sure Mike will change a gazillion times before we leave), we have passes for Universal (thanks coke rewards!), and we just have the summer to get through!
We're going shortly after Joel's birthday too, so we'll probably do some celebrating there. Today we're celebrating Mike's birthday! We're starting to think about dining plans, and what we might want to do. We've never done a character meal at DL, so we might try for one or 2. I also just read the height restrictions and Joel is tall enough for Matterhorn, so we'll be able to ride as a family! Woo hoo!
Anyway, thanks for checking out the TR, for more details, be sure to check out our DLP report too!
Stay tuned!

Just saw that TSM will be closed while we're there but on a happier note, I might have to change the TR title to 8 parks in 5 months as we plan for a potential November WDW trip

Wow, I'm jealous of how much you get to travel!!! For us to go once a year (or so) is a major production that almost didn't happen this year!! I'm looking forward to seeing how your DL trip planning & trip go!!!

We've made a reservation at the Sheraton Anaheim for 9/25 to free up some points for that November WDW trip that keeps getting closer and closer to being booked!!! Keep your fingers crossed for the TR name change!

As much as I don't want the summer to go by fast, I still can't believe we're 9 weeks from tomorrow away from leaving!!!

It's time to start thinking about our ADRs too...it's too bad you can't book the DL ones online like you can for WDW.

NEW NAME: 8 parks in 5 months! WOO HOO

Exciting news (for us!): We have booked our flight and OKW for November! WDW knew we couldn't stay away for almost a year, so we're taking a short trip before Thanksgiving.
We are at 60 days to DL though, which is very exciting as well. I'm still trying to decide if we want to make ADRs for places like Blue Bayou or Ariel's Grotto. We did get restaurant.com certificates for House of Blues (in Anaheim, Orlando, and Boston) for $2, so we'll be going there for sure!

I've been checking out the menu for the Celebration BBQ in Frontierland. Anyone ever been? The menu looks decent...6 weeks to go today!
