Add us to the list! We'll be there 11/21 - 11/29. Still in the early planning stages so trying to decide between Wilderness Lodge or staying offsite at Bonnet Creek. Any recommendations?

Welcome!!! I'll add you to the first post.

So....I have news. The place that made me the offer and I couldn't take has called me back. I'm not actually going to work for them for a couple of months, but consult for them. Which is just fine, because I'll do a schedule C for my taxes next year and be able to write off all my miles & tolls. I won't be able to get benefits, but it's still a great opportunity and I get my foot in the door.

Thanks for transferring me to the official, official Nov 2013 thread! We actually bought plane tickets tonight. I was just playing travel agentlike I do and an incredible round trip fair popped up. $325 per person from Fargo, ND to MCO! All 3 of us(plus baby) for less than 1000, dh said book it! So, our official dates will be 11/05/13~11/13/13.
We're sticking w/a moderate. In Nov '10 we stayed at POFQ(awesome) trip,
In Mar '12 we stayed at POR and were underwhelmed and disappointed. Tempted to just do POFQ again, but the great dig site pool at CSR along w/hammocks and beautiful scenery has caught our attention.

That is a great age! I'm jealous that you stay deluxe. I would love to, but just can't sqeeze it in. Plus, we really do like POR. And on that note.....

You are so very welcome! I'm surprised you didn't like POR. BUT....it is not really "Disney themed". It's more rustic, but I think that's why we like it. I would love to stay at POFQ, but we have a family of five, so that is just not happening.

And well done on the airfare!!! If only. That's why we are taking the AutoTrain this year. Before I popped on here, I took a look at airfare. Airtran and Southwest prices aren't available, but for US Air we'd be looking at over $400 per person...that means $2,000. And I thought I was saving money basedon $1,500 for airfare! LOL

Actually we liked POR grounds and especially their pasta bar!! Dangerous place, lol. YeeHaw Bob was also great. It was the fact that our room wasn't ready at 4:00 pm according to housekeeping. We were at the front desk for about an hour, then when we got to our room, it was the far back of Acadian house, bottom floor w/a staircase for a view. The room was dirty~trash on the floor, old candy/gum in the drawers, someone must have clipped their fingernails as we found those in a pile behind the phone, YUCK! So, we go to call the front desk to complain and our phone doesn't work!...we end up walking all the way back to lobby and in no uncertain terms we say we want a new room! Never Happened~Manager of housekeeping called personally the next morning and said they would do a magical cleaning and apologized. We came back to our room and there were 2 mugs & stuffed animal and the things I specifically mentioned were clean, but nothing sparkled. This was a refurbished room that was only 5-6 months old and it already showed wear because of it not being properly maintained! The first two days were really awful, but we got through it. We have good memories from the trip, though, too so we are excited again!! Going back to using a travel agent and paying for a water view room this time so it better be right!!

Hi, I'm kicking around specific dates, but was thinking of Nov 27-Dec 4th. We'll be staying at Caribbean Beach. I think we'll arive though on Nov 26 and stay offsite for one night. Does anyone know why Disney doesn't have MVMCP during Thanksgiving week?

You can add me to your list. Just started planning my trip nov. 9-16 to celebrate my mothers 70th b-day not sure weather to stay at POFQ or POR. Since my mother needs a scooter, which is the best as far as transportation goes? Hoping for FD since it looks like you might need to be staying at the moderate/deluxe resorts
