We are actually leaving here tomorrow and checking in to Shades on Friday. We could make the 17-hour trip in one day, but we are old farts and need to rest.

Thanks! I checked the 10-day forecast and it looks really good. A bit hot (in the 90s), but no rain. We don't drink beer, but I will def check into it for everyone.

Will be trying to post here daily. Off to finish packing up the car. Leaving bright and early tomorrow.

Have a happy and safe trip! . I'll be watching for your post from SOG, my trip isn't until August and the wait is just awful but I'm gonna live vicariously through all those going to WDW soon.

See it never changes!!

Gotta love them though

RE: Family SUites - There are 7 of us going in August and the suites were not available. I spoke with SOG and they said the suites are reserved up to a year in advance and hard to get. They normally give these suites to large families.. I think like 10 or more people.
I am not sure if you will be able to snag a room but call and ask. It can't hurt
The family suites only sleep up to 8 people, so they're not reserved for large groups. They're pretty much first come first serve. If you book a year in advance, your chances of getting them-even if you're only a group of 2-are much better even if a group of 8 called 2 days later.

Today's photo of the day. Me being goofy. Well, maybe not Goofy, but goofy. Not really hugging him...trying to take him home.

That's what I figure. We may have my parents or my sister and her family along, so I was hoping to get the big suite. I am procrastinating calling.

The suites have the kids sleeping area in the living room, correct? That always makes me nervous because my ds has a history of running off, even at night. We have to be careful that he can't get away. That's another reason the Palm Suite appeals, I believe the kids room does not have a door that opens to the hall, is that correct? And it costs about the same as the cabins at Ft Wilderness. We are going to have an infant, and with the waking at night to nurse, I think we have to have at least 2 rooms. I don't want cranky sleep deprived kids on our trip. I can just get by with more coffee.

So there's refillable mugs now?

I've been thinking about upgrading one of us to an annual pass so we'd get free theme park parking, and we can get the Tables in Wonderland card. Has anyone done that? Do you think it saved you some money? We are planning for a 2 week trip.

Has anyone done a split stay with a Disney Resort? How did that work out?

Yes. Refills will cost you extra each time.
