First Trip - Oct '09 So Excited!! (Pre-Trip Report)

The Cast:

Myself - 23 - First trip

DH - 30 - Second trip (last time was 20 years ago)

DS#1 - 2ish -first trip (celebrating 3rd Birthday at WDW)

DS#2 - 2ish - first trip (celbrating 3rd Birthday at WDW)

DS#3 - 2 - first trip


sub in's

MIL/FIL - will be staying at their time share partaking in some of our activities.

When: October 18th - 23rd

Where: Wilderness Lodge

Why: Two reasons really. The main reason is we won the trip through Roger's Publishing House. They are flying our family there and back. 5 nights in deluxe resort. 4x 6 day magic your way passes. Signed up for transportation from airport to resort (and return).We are responsible for food and our own spending money. Second reason...we set the date so we can Celebrate the twins Third birthday in the World !!

I am so excited. We have been planning a trip to WDW for a while now. But we were going to wait until the kids were older. When we were told we won we were definatly taking advantage of it. It will be so nice to see the kids reaction. They have no idea where we're going. The plan is to not tell them until we get there. It will be so nice to watch the magic in their eyes.

So far we have our room booked. Flights should be booked within the next week or two. I'm looking into CARES for the airplane ride. I am borrowing an ERGO to help manover with baby (who will really be a toddler by then - but I'm not ready to admit that ) Plus we are looking into a couple Stroller Swaps. Plan is to get a double and a single that way I don't have to wear baby all the time. Other then that we have no idea of where to start. Dh says its to early to plan but yet everyone on here says it's time to start. So I'm starting.

Yes it was a great package. I am very happy. Plan tickets have been purchased officially! We are one step closer. Now I need to figure out what else I can plan now.

Your trip sounds great. The boards are really a great place to read all about and look at pics of your resort. Allears.net is also very helpful.

Ok so Resort - booked, flights - booked, CARES & Ergo - arranged, Double Stroller - booked.

Still have the single stroller as interest.

Now it's time to decide on MNSSHP and start thinking of Reservations at all.

After that - packing lists.

What else am I missing?

Do you have an idea of what parks you want to do on what days? Are you going to do MNSSHP? You can buy tickets for that May 1st (next FRIDAY!!)

I have no idea what parks to do what days lol. And as for MNSSHP we're undecided. DH really feels it's to expensive for just him and I as the kids will sleep through it. I was going to see what prices are like on May 1st and decide from there.

I will be at Wilderness Lodge the same time as you - from Oct 17-20. I'll be at WL all by my widdle self, and then on 10/20 my BFF comes to meet me and we're moving on to Animal Kingdom Lodge till Oct. 26!

I highly recommend MNSSHP. I'm going by myself on Oct 18 and then again with the BFF on Oct. 20. It is just amazing and I need two nights to do everything!

I hope you update soon!! Have you done any additional planning? Got any ADRs tentatively planned? I'm definitely eating at Whispering Canyon and Artist Point!

I am still stuck on what to plan so early. I am waiting for my Birth Certificate to show up so that we can order passports. DH is still not sure he wants to go to MNSSHP so as of right now we're not going but I am hoping that I can get him to change his mind As for any other plans - nothing really has been made. I have looked into the possibility of a grociery delivery. I have no idea what to get for ADR's. I need to still look into that a bit so that we're ready to book them. I know we want to do a character meal on the Monday (twins Bday) But other then that I have no idea what the plan is. I don't even know what character meal yet

I'm in! We're taking our 2 year old for her first trip in Sept!
How about showing pics of your family? You could also start looking at menus and decide some places you want to eat!

I spend hours here looking at menus: http://allears.net/menu/menus.htm

Crystal Palace character buffet is awesome. I've never done Chef Mickey's or Cinderella's Royal Table or 1900 Park Fare but they look pretty sweet too!

Thanks I'll start looking at the menu's. Cinderella's is not really appealing to me as I have all boys. But I'm sure now that I have the menu's I can get something rolling.
