4th family trip to Disney, 1st in 4 YEARS! AUG 2013(we leave August 9th!!!)
Ok, we last visited Disneyworld in 2009. It was our 10 year anniversary and we wanted to do it again even though we were all happy we decided to move away from Disney for a bit till the kids got a little older. Now we are planning on heading back. We plan to reserve a hotel probably this weekend and then comes to reserve dining for the few days that we do that would be next week I think because we can do that within 180 days. I'm very intrigued this time because well, the last trip my son's were 8 and 6. This summer they will be 12 and 10. Scary how they get old so fast.
Our first year we flew from Philly to Orlando and that was cool and we stayed at All Star Movies. That trip was awesome, we had a great time but the day we got there and the day we got home we felt rushed.
The 2nd year we stayed at All Star Sports and that trip was awesome too, except for the first day when as soon as we arrived in Orlando my younger son decided to throw up and we were only 15 minutes from Disney and then he was ok and then threw up again after swimming for 30 minutes(thankfully it ended there and it was an awesome week)
The 3rd year was probably the best because we drove again(no one got sick) and every day we drove our car to every place except Magic Kingdom which meant we never waited for disney transportation which wasn't too bad in the mornings but in the evenings when we just wanted the kids to sleep it made things hard.
So here we are 4 years later. We are looking back trying to figure things out for this year's trip. Things are looking to change this summer and the experience should be totally different. For one we are going to include water parks this year. We have never visited the water parks in other years because it was an expense we didn't need to have and the kids had plenty of fun at the parks. It seems like we are going back to All Star Sports. We loved pop century last time but since it's been so long we figured we'd go back to All Star Sports. All we do now right now is our dates for our vacation Aug 10th-18th and the probably hotel. As more plans come in we will post.
