This is our 4th Sept/Oct trip, the later in Sept the better.
Anywhoo..we're at CBR. Can't wait to see what we're able to get for dining ressies. Hoping for Crystal Palace this year, couldn't get it last year.
Welcome to the group!!! I have you added to our list on page 30. Mmmm Crystal Palace are you hoping for breakfast, lunch, or dinner?

You are in the right place! I totally understand the info overload, but you are starting early and that is awesome! Lots of good advice and experience on the disboards. If I may throw my two bits in...learn as much as you can, but don't expect to be able to do everything in one visit. Happy planning!

Oh my gosh, absolutely do not try to do everything or you'll ge so stressed out! My biggest piece of advice is just to roll with things. Even the best laid plans don't always work out...for instance, we didn't plan on MIL passing out last year, or my FIL almost chopping off his toes 6 weeks before their first trip with us, but we managed to have awesome trips anyway. Have fun!!

Yay for HDDR!!!!!
Dh didn't want to make the change. We are planning on doing 3 Wp days and he just don't want to have to leave early to go to ADR's. Then we would have to loose the WP&F option off our tickets for the upgrade. So we are staying put.

So I know we all have a while to go but I know I'm getting excited. My DD talked me into putting in our video from last September so I'm sitting here watching the parades and getting more excited! I hate to rush the summer but I have to admit I can't wait to get back.

Woohoo for the September repeats!

Although in 2013, it looks like we will be going back to our regular December vacation slot (maybe November). So I'm not sure if or when we will be back in September. But it is nice to see the same faces--ok screen names--from one year to the next!

I miss MVMCP! We like to go mid-December for the same reason--we get our Disney Christmas fix without actually being there during Christmas! That cruise sounds awesome. I really hope the Fantasy does shorter sailings at some point because I would love to see it. It's just so hard to get off of work for that long!

I'm also a first timer, been researching since New Years Day just to figure out where to eat!!!!! Now I finally feel like I have that covered, and with the schedule, trying to figure out which nights to do what based on who is open late, etc. It should be an interesting week for sure!
