We do have a decent pic from 1900 park fare, but I didn't buy the digital copy, only the print.

I lost this thread for awhile! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We did ~ and now reality has set in that it will be Christmas before I know it! I am very behind in my shopping.

My husband and I finally booked our 10 year anniversary trip for January (our anniversary was in June, lol). We're going to Jackson Hole, WY ~ I'm excited and nervous. Will be the first time we have left all 3 girls for an extended time. And, living in AL, I don't do well in the cold! Couldn't convince DH for an adults only Disney trip!

But, I *think* I have finally decided that we will definitely stay off site on our May/June 2014 trip. I'm nervous, but it will be fine. We are going to do it as budget friendly as we can (hey, it IS Disney!). But we'll get a condo, so we can have plenty of space, b/c I want to stay at least 8 days, hopefully 10. Besides Disney (probably just 5 days), we'll do Seaworld, a day at the beach, and my DH and oldest will at least do one day at Universal (and maybe on those days I'll take the younger two to MK) ~ hmmm, that's not going to be very budget friendly!! But, really, we'll try. And I've really been itching to go back to Disney at Christmas time, so we'll go sometime around the holidays in 2015 and stay on-site, maybe even splurge for monorail resort again so we can easily see all the decorations.

Oh, we will not be driving anywhere, lol! We are very much looking forward to it ~ it will be something we have never experienced, that is for sure! We have a few things scheduled...we'll do ski school one day, and 2 tours ~ a snow mobile to Old Faithful and one to the hot springs.

And we looked into Lake Tahoe ~ but decided against it b/c we did not want to rent a car to get there from the airport. The airport we'll fly into is in Jackson Hole and the hotel shuttle will get us where we need to go

We flew into Reno and took a shuttle up to Tahoe, it was the scariest moment of my life!!! Zipping and zooming up into the mountains with all that snow and slick roads, all vehicles are required to have chains on their tires, but even with those it is still treacherous. I was scared to death! Once we finally got to our resort we couldn't even go anywhere... one morning we attempted to walk to breakfast in snow up to our waists! But I have to say it was the perfect trip for alone time. We had a nice fireplace and a huge suite.

Does anyone have any opinions on room requests for BWI CL? I asked over on the BWI thread but haven't gotten any replies. Would love some advice!

This thread is right up my alley. I haven't stayed at the same place twice. I've stayed at All Star Sports, Poly, WL, CR, YC, BC, and several off site locations. Next week will be the first time at a moderate resort (POR) and October will be BCV.
I love the Epcot resorts the most so I guess I will have to hit BW someday.

Enjoy POR! I agree, the Epcot resorts are great. You would love the Boardwalk I'm sure.

That's fantastic Erika!!!!! We recently got back...so now we wait until the end of August

I just changed our resort from GF GV to YC CL...I love the MK area...but with SAB and the fact that the kiddos have never stayed on the Epcot side...it'll be a fresh new trip for us

Was finally able, after 27 calls to get through by phone. I know this is close. DH and I were there first of October without teens, this is sort of a way to make it up to them and i could pass up the discount for AKL!

Actually considering CS only for this upcoming trip. Holidays = large crowds, last minute reservation means poor ADR availability, plus we will have three teenaged girls with us. Jeff actually said we may even venture off property if nothing looks appealing!

That's why I decided to do YC...I am a true GF lover, but it's not all about me . DH and I did CL at WL in August..and I took the girls last month. But Summer will be a full week in WDW, we haven't done that since 2009

We are a CS family..mostly since our kiddos are young. I prefer it ...JMHO...can't wait to hear about your trip
