In my opinion, it's not that hot. You have to take into consideration that I live in the south, though. Wait times depend on the park and events. During Star Wars Weekends, they can be very long.
Hey, thanks! I live in the UK where it's always freezing so I'll probably be melting but hopefully i'll be having too much fun to care! we are going to be there for SWW, I'm going to stay away from that area though, neither of us are SW fans so shouldn't be a problem.

Going back!

Hi all! I have not been on the Disboards in a very long time as I was devastated when I had to cancel our last trip. I am praying that such an issue does not arise this time. It has taken me a while to finally be able to get excited and plan a trip again. So send some fairy dust my way! We are planning on going May 19-25. This is our first time going in May so we are a bit scared of the heat. It is the only time that works for us though because I am currently in nursing school and will have the time off for a vacation and actually be able to enjoy it. Lets just hope I can concentrate on school in the meantime while I am thinking about going to WDW and hugging

I have the broad strokes figured out but for the most part I think that after doing Disney with the precision and planning of the Normandy invasion, we're going to more or less wing it and relax.


114 days to go!!!!

Aside from our Disney days the rest is not planned. We have ideas of what we want to do, we are still deciding if we want to use our 2 day tickets to IOA or not. They were free so if we don't use them or only use 1 day it's no big deal. But here's a rough plan:

4/29- Arrive 9:30, check in Marriott Cypress Harbour room will be ready! Food shopping and then one of 3 options:
1. DTD, dinner at T-Rex
2. IOA
3. Resort day lounge at the pool

4/30- MK, lunch at BOG, dinner QS- wherever

5/1-Typhoon Lagoon, dinner at 1900 Park Fare, watch Wishes and EWP from Poly beach.

5/2- HS, lunch QS, dinner Sci-Fi

5/3- Clearwater beach, DH am fishing trip, me and DD's beach, afternoon Clearwater Marine Aquarium to see Winter the dolphin.

5/4- IOA or resort day

5/5-5/6- Sanibel Island

5/7- fly home
