Funnily enough, I happened to randomly click on this PTR sitting inches (centimeters for you correct folk) above mine since it was roughly the same timeframe as mine. It wasn't until I finished and then saw the username that it was you

Sounds like a good time is brewing so far!

Allan, glad you stumbled on to my ptr! That is funny And don't worry I use inches! I'm constantly having to go back and forth between metric and imperial. The Bahamas, Canada and The UK all use both. In England everything is metric except when driving and then it's in miles. Then they measure body weight in stones!! In Canada they use mainly metric, but sometimes they will use imperial, like grocery stores will use both measurements! In The Bahamas it is imperial, but since we used to be British there is metric too, and in school we used English textbooks for Maths. Then there are things like the US gallon and British gallon and driving on the left and driving on the right. Needless to say half the time I want to hit my head against a wall

Today marks 3 months until Disney!!!!!

Really can’t believe how fast time is going I need to start finalizing my plans!

Now for the details of the trip.

WHEN:

Mike and I - September 21 to October 2
S & H - September 21 to September 28

Where we will be staying:

Pop Century
Mike & I and S & H will spend a week here,from September 21 until September 28. We will be getting 2 rooms, so hopefully we will be near each other.

Wilderness Lodge
Mike and I will head here on September 28 until October 2.

Mike & I and S & H will be staying at Pop Century for the first week. S & H will head back home. Then Mike & I will switch resorts and spend 4 nights at Wilderness Lodge. We decided to splurge and since Mike will be celebrating his birthday while we are in Disney, we thought why not


The plan is to all fly down together and get to Orlando Friday evening. This is S & H's first visit so I really hope they like Pop. Mike and I stayed at Coronado Springs last year and loved it, so a little concerned that I won't like Pop. It has nothing to do with the actual room and not being a moderate etc, I just like quiet. Mike and S though, are in my opinion, 2 big kids and have endless amounts of energy, so I really do think they will love Pop

Dining Plan:
We are a bunch of foodies, and well Mike and S love to eat. Think it’s their favourite thing to do!! So we have upgraded from the QSDP to the DxDP. So of course we have lots of dining reservations to make!

In december, we did a split between Pop and WL too! I really enjoyed it. Pop is high energy... so starting there but finishing at WL was PERFECT!

Wow!! I can’t believe I started this PTR and then totally neglected it. I have only one excuse, Life got in the way The summer has flown by and has been soooo busy. I am sure many of you can relate to that. Now that the trip has been paid off, Mickey Mail has arrived and we only have 1 MONTH TO GO, thought it best to really get going


Well since starting this PTR I am happy to say a lot of the trip has been completely changed. I do love to tinker and I am sure there will be more changes and additions as the days go by


The biggest change is our Resort


Originally the plan was to stay at Pop with S&H for 7 nights then transfer to Wilderness Lodge Resort for the last 4 nights after S&H had left. At the time this option was very appealing, a chance to experience a value and a deluxe. The more time went on though, the idea of moving to a new resort started to appeal less.


Since the free dining promotion had ended for our travel dates, I wasn’t sure if we would be able to change resorts. We didn't need just 1 room, but we needed 2! The first time I called there was no availability, and the second time, and the third time and who knows how many times after that. At this point I really thought we wouldn’t be able to switch. So as the 45 day mark was approaching, I thought I would just try it one last time. If we were supposed to switch resorts there would be availability


So I called, got a wonderful and helpful CM named Donna, and began a very long phone call to WDW! After being on the phone for almost an hour and a half we had our resort changed to


Port Orleans French Quarter with a river view!!!!!



I did not have time to discuss options and moderate resort choices with S&H, so just made an executive decision and booked what I could. But I am sure they will love it! POFQ gets rave reviews. Fingers crossed that they love it! As they have never been to WDW before I am sure they will.


Up next - Day 1 Plans

Woohoo!

I got my Mickey Mail just the other day... I should probably consider adding that to my PTR, but this week's been a bit...hectic.

At any rate, yay for changes! And I happen to think that POFQ during that timeframe is a super good idea
