Alright! The only thing that is the exact same for us is the breakfast at Tusker House. Maybe we'll run into each other if we decide on Animal Kingdom for the same day!

Also planning a Christmas 2013 trip. Although one of my bosses at Target thinks I may need to quit and then get rehired to get the time off. This is gonna be my dream trip though so I'll do whatever it takes.

I will have to recheck my plans, but if I remember correctly (I have changed the itinerary over 275,000 times ) our AK day is either Monday, Oct. 17 or Thursday, Oct. 20. We will of course be shooting for an EARLY ADR!

It would be totally cool to meet a fellow DISer!

We have the same dates too - Oct 15-22 at Villas at Wilderness Lodge (also DVC). I am also a compulsive planner but, since we are normally at WDW for a fortnight and we only have a week this time since we are cruising our second week, I have had to accept that we can't do EVERYTHING. I'm determined to squeeze as much as possible into those first 7 days though

I hope to bump into some of our fellow October travellers while we are there

Your ADR's look yummy!! I LOVED Tusker House breakfast onour last trip, so I am paying OOP for it (we are doing QSDP this time). We had an 8 am ADR, but I think if you have an ADR anytime before 8:30, you can be done and ready for RD! That's our plan anyways!

Your ADRs sound great. We will be eating off-site a lot this trip but still plan to eat at T-Rex, a must-do for the boys, and Whispering Canyon Cafe. DH and I have only ever eaten there without the kids so no fun for us. This time we will be in a big group (there are 9 of us) so we are hoping to get to see some of the antics WCC is famous for

Can't wait to read more about your plans. Caden is so cute, I'll bet he will be so excited when he realises where you're going.

So glad to have you along. It's exciting that there are so many other people with the same dates! It would be totally cool to run into fellow DISers while there! Do you have a PTR? I would love to hear more about your plans!

ONE DAY....I hope to have DVC....ONE DAY!

No PTR as yet - we are travelling with two other families (both from the DIS) so I am hoping one of the others will write the trippies - as you can see from my sig, it's usually my job so it would be nice to have a break.

Hi Stephanie

joining in your Oct planning fun...My hubby & I are going on a no kid anniversary trip the 16-20 of Oct too...staying at BLT (DVC) like Michelle (exwdwcm)...

I have 4 children that will be home w/ Grandma and my youngest will be just a month shy of turning 5 while we are there in Oct...she LOVES Disney World to pieces

your son is so cute and I love the you can go when you are 4 story...

great planning thus far and so sweet your grandparents and hopefully Mom are going too...we took all 4 GP's w/ for our kids first WDW trip back in 05 too...if you can plan some special time though for just you, your DBF and son to create some special memories alone...

good luck driving and so glad to hear your not pushing the envelope and trying to go to a park on arrival day...

love all your ADR's and going for all the character meals...we love them!!!

Julie

Hey Julie! to my PTR!

How exciting for you to be going kid free AND to be celebrating your anniversary!

We will definitely set aside some special time just for the 3 of us. My grandparents will also probably take some alone time with just Caden which will leave Wayne and I some time to enjoy the magic of Disney just the 2 of us! I am SOOOOO excited!

I think I am as excited about the character meals as Caden will be. So fun!

Stay tuned for more....

Magic Kingdom MUST DO's!

I can't get Disney off the brain...go figure! I am on Spring Break this week and am starting today out with NASTY severe thunderstorms and the possibility for tornadoes. I guess there's nothing better to do than hang out on the DIS, right?

I though I would share the list of our MUST DO's in each park. Let's start with one of my 2 favorite parks....Magic Kingdom!

Magic Kingdom MUST DO's:
WDW Railroad
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
Pirates of the Caribbean
Space Mountain
Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
It's A Small World
Snow White's Scary Adventures
Peter Pan's Flight
Mickey's Philhar Magic 3-D
Tomorrowland PeopleMover
Haunted Mansion
Main Street Electrical Parade
Wishes Fireworks

Items of Interest: (we won't be upset if we miss them)
Jungle Cruise
Tom Sawyer's Island
Liberty Square Riverboat
Enchanted Tiki Room
Dumbo
Magic Carpets of Aladdin
Swiss Family Treehouse

(Items in italics are those that Caden is too short too ride or I think will be too intense for him. We will utilize rider Swap and/or my grandparents so Wayne and I can ride these)

We only have 1 day in MK (1.5 if you count MNSSHP) and I know we just can't do everything! I know some of you are probably thinking that I am CERTIFIABLY CRAZY putting Dumbo, Aladdin & Tom Sawyer on the "secondary" list since this trip is for my 4 year old son. :P There IS a method to my madness...he's not a huge Dumbo or Aladdin fan and there are SO MANY other rides that he is tall enough to ride and I think he would enjoy more than just going in circles. As for Tom Sawyer, this will become a MUST DO if Caden is breaking down and just needs to run off some steam...otherwise, we will just fit it in if we have time.

I would love to hear your opinions... REALLY! Is there something on the MUST DO list you think I could ditch? Is there anything on the secondary list you thing should be a MUST? Did I leave anything off completely that you think we should consider?

Call me crazy but this time Country Bears Jamboree and Tiki Room are actually on our must do list. I've never done them myself and want to make sure the kids experience them since I don't know how long they will be there.

I think your lists look good. I will say that my son has never seen Dumbo, but it is still a must do for us. Kids just love it for some reason. In our family it has always been a tradition, so maybe that has just rubbed off on him.

I also think (though I am not positive on this) that Snow White's Scary Adventure is closing soon, as part of the Fantasyland refurb, but I don't know for sure when.

I also heard they are changing the Tiki room back to the original, or something closer to it.

It's a great idea to have your must do list, it helps prioritize.

It's kind of funny that you mention the Tiki Room. I have never seen it and for some reason I REALLY want to see what it's all about. Country Bears Jamboree on the other hand I think I can pass up... LOL

Truth be told...I think my aversion to Dumbo and Aladdin has more to do with me than with my son! I can ride roller coasters and thrill rides all day, but you put me on something that goes round and round somewhat slowly and I get super motion sick. I guess if Caden wants to ride...Gi-Gi or Paw-Paw will have to ride with him.

I had heard that about Snow White as well, but was unsure about when it would be closing. I already had to take all of ToonTown off the list since it's history. I hope Snow White is still around in October.

I am using Touring Plans (though I haven't got in detail with that yet) and I figure without a must do list we're going to waste time just wandering around.
