Well i'm looking forward to Christmas very much. God has been good to my family and so I am very grateful this Christmas, especially for my Disney trip. And I'm grateful for you all and this wonderful thread. I hope that everyone is having a wonderful holiday season and that all are celebrating with health, and family. I can't wait till we can say "I'm going to Disney this year!!" I'm looking at my Disney coasters and Disney wreath bought in the world and anticipating a wonderful summer. Happy Holidays to you all whatever the holiday you keep, safety, love, and knowledge of true joy to you all.

what a wonderful message!! Our family has had its trials this year, but all in all we are together and that's all that matters. I also love my Dis family and wish everyone health, happiness and Disney in this coming year!!!

Hello and wishing you all the happiest of holidays!

I'm Gina and new to this thread (not the site!). A few months ago, I booked my family's WDW vacation for August (15th-18th), with a stay at Pop Century. This is a big secret; our sons (ages 11 and 8) know nothing about it.

My husband was in Florida in August years ago, and was miserable (rain, mud, mosquitoes), but I suspect that had to do with camping in a tent off property, lol. I've never been to WDW in August, so I'm going to lurk about and read what others have to say about it.

Also, I've never stayed at the Pop, so I will have to check out the threads dedicated to it. Looking forward to booking dining reservations! Want to take the family to someplace cool, with great eats. PS: I have not added the dining package.

Have a great day, everyone, despite the terrible weather!

Welcome Gina!!! I loved our last trip in August. There are always ways to beat the heat and I don't believe you will find mud or mosquitoes in the parks. I've never stayed at POP but it is on my to do list during one of these trips!!

Hope everyone had a great holiday!

There's a foot of snow outside, and all I can think about is when can I book my ADRs and my flight!! Feb. 4 can't come fast enough!!!!

Gina - Pop is a great place to stay and your boys will probably love the pools! Going in August, you almost certainly will see some rain at some point, but on our last trip we found it totally manageable. (Just watch for slippery shoes!) No mosquitos though, thank goodness!!!

Welcome Gina!
My son and I were just at POP this past August. Not a single mosquito but plenty of rain the first few days since Isaac was making its way past. Didnt stop us, we just put on the ponchos and went on! lol. Was very very humid, my poor asthmatic lungs weren't very happy sometimes but I use an ECV so made it much easier. We loved POP, we were in building 1 pool view. We were only a short walk to the food court and bus stop and we absolutely LOVED the tie-dye cheesecake!

Think I got everyone updated on the resort list. Let me know if I left anyone out or if there are any errors.

I'm in!

Just got back from a December stay a few weeks ago and can't stop talking about it, so...

We literally booked late last night. We both work in public schools so our December trip was a one time deal for time off. Back to August we come!

We will be staying 20-26th at the Poly (1st timers there). We have continued with our tradition of resort changing for each trip.

Our December 2012 group was so much fun, so definitely looking forward to trip planning with you guys!

Hello! I am joining in. We are going to book once I narrow down where we want to stay since AKL is no longer a choice with my two year old turning three next month. We are planning on arriving 8/18 and staying through the 22nd or 23rd.

Hi everyone!! I am so excited to be joining this thread!! We just booked our August trip for 8/18-8/27. We are a family of five with three boys (16,14, and 12). We always go in August and realized this may be our last end of August trip since my oldest will be off to college at that time in 2014. I decided to split our stay since he has always wanted to stay at the Poly (ever since I took him at age 3 to sit on the beach and watch the EWP one night during a stay at a different resort). I haven't stayed there since I was 16, so I figured this was a good choice for the first half of our trip and then we will move to the BC. So we have two rooms booked at the Poly from 8/18-8/22 and then a 2BR villa at BCV from 8/22-8/27.

I am going to try to catch up on this thread to get to know you all....soooooo excited to start planning this trip!!!
