Planning two disney trips!!!! Advise?????

Hi! My name is Ariel (Yes, that is my REAL Birth name, what can i say... my parents love disney... and so do I! Woohoo!) Anyway i am currently planning 2 trips to the Happiest Place On Earth: Walt Disney World.


1). 7-Days of Disney Camping with best-friends and family!
The first trip is fully planned already. This trip is for my parents (everyone else will receive a fake disney-themed name!) Tigger AKA Dad () and Eeyore AKA Mom (), my brother Peter Pan, his best friend Pluto (who are both 12), my best friend Snow White (17) and my self (Ariel-16). We are staying at the Fort Wilderness Cabins for the first time. I reserved ADRs at the Hoop Dee Doo Revue Dinner Show for Eeyore and Pluto's Bdays, Crystal Palace Lunch for the kids only, 1900 park fare dinner, Garden Grill dinner, and dinner at the Sci-Fi Dine In theater. The rest of our meals will be counter service or prepared at our cabin (YAY for cooking!). We are staying from 06/14/11-06/20/11, and are spending only 5 days in the parks. Since this trip is fully planned i don't need much help, but if you have any suggestions please let me know!
**ALSO: For 3 of the 5 park days it will be just the four kids so if you have any tips to keep track of two twelve year old boys that you think would benefit me, PLEASE feel free to let me know! I will be VERY grateful




2). SPRING BREAK AT DISNEY... WHEN 6 HIGHSCHOOLERS TAKE OVER DISNEY!
Ok I haven't started to plan this trip yet so I could really use A LOT of help. I think we will start booking in September, but until then I would love other imput for Hotels to look into, Restaurants, and other activities we may enjoy. Here are the things I know:
-Mid March 2012, for 7 nights and 8 days
-6 girls: Ariel (17 then), Jasmine (17 then), Pocahontas (19 then), Belle (18 then), and Mulan (18 then). **** 4 of the 6 will be newbies to disney... and the 5th one hasn't been since she was 5.
-We want at least 4 days in the parks.
-We want Deluxe Dining
-We want to KEEEP THE PRICE DOWN!!!!

Other ideas:
-Park Hopper and water parks and fun options? Will we have time?
-Thinking about the All star music... your thoughts?
-La nouba... Cirque de soliel show?
-Day trip to universal studio/ Harry potter world
-Spa day
-Best places to eat for breakfast/lunch/dinner?
-Other ideas?


Obviously we will not be doing EVERYTHING... these are just ideas and i know that many many MANY things will change before March next year. I am just really excited to share a week with my best friends in the happiest place on earth, before we all disperse to different colleges. And the only think that is REALLY important, is that we have fun!

Thank you for reading,
Love your Fellow Disnerd

Ariel

I figured that while I was at it i would post a little bit about my previous trips, which have all been just with my family (Tigger, Eeyore, Peter Pan, and Me- Ariel) and the first trip with with my grandma ("Nanny") who is no longer living.
We have gone 3 times before:
-In 1999 when i was 5 and my brother was 1 (I don't remember too much from this trip)
-2006 we stayed at AKL and it was AMAZING! I was 12 and Peter Pan was 8.
-2008 we stayed at the Hilton in Downtown Disney (on property) when i was 14 and Peter was 10 (that was our best trip yet!!!!)

I am SUPER excited to go again in just over a mounth!!! Wooot!

If you've never done La Nouba, I would highly highly highly recommend it! I went twice, once with my parents and once with my husband and everyone loved it.
About your second trip, I would say you'd have time for the water parks. Especially since you've been to WDW before and know some things you may not want to do again.
Wizzarding World of Harry Potter... omg, have you been yet? Are you a Harry Potter fan? It's amazing, so much like being in a movie (if you close your eyes to the shorts-and-tshirt tourists everywhere )

About your first trip, camping sounds fun! I hope you enjoy both

I am planning two trips myself - and need to get my act together to do a ptr as well!

You'll have to let me know how your teens only trip is working! I teach classes for homeschoolers - and was thinking about doing a trip to the world as a field trip for my geography class (and taking the Disney YES class on cultures) - but was not sure of the logisitics of adult to kid ratios in the rooms!
