Wife and I had tusker breakfast on our honeymoon. Great breakfast buffet!! Tons of characters, goofy, Donald, daisy, I think Mickey and Minnie showed up, too!

Hi everyone!

First of all I would like to give a huge, excited 'yaaaaaayy!!' for everyone who will be enjoying Walt Disney World in November, I'm sure you are all as excited as I am to be visiting Mickey and co later this year!

I will be flying out on the 17th November and coming home on the 6th December, I cannot wait!! With me will be my wonderful little princess (she will have not long turned 4 when we go!) who cannot wait to get back to WDW and my other half who is coming for the first time ever!!! It has taken me over 2 years to talk him into it but he finally cracked when our little darling looked him in the eye, little tears coming to her face and said 'please daddy, I want you to come on the pirate ship (Pirates of the Caribbean) with me to sing the song!!' Heehee!! We are staying at POFQ and decided to go for the free DDP offered with the package, I have never stayed at this resort or done the DDP before so it's all very exciting!

I am so excited about my holiday and can't wait for the MVMCP dates to be released so I can start planning properly!! Woohooo!!!

Welcome to the group! Hopefully, your DH will fall in love with Disney like mine did on his first trip there. I never thought he would be a Disney fan, but he sure is. Did you book free dining with a bounceback?

Hi! Thank you for the welcome!!

I'm sorry but I'm not sure what 'bounceback' is

In the UK if you book a package and stay at a selected resort hotel you get a free DDP for each night of your stay and $100 'disney spending money' It's a limited time offer and as I was booking anyway I decided to take advantage of it! I usually stay at the Boardwalk and don't bother with the DDP but as we are going for a longer holiday (usually I would do 12 days) I thought I would try it out! It's free afterall so why not?? :D

That's great! The UK offers different deals, so that is how you got free ining. Bounceback is when you go to visit and there is a special offer in your room for you to return for another trip. Often the offer is for free dining.

We love Tusker House!!! And we really like AK, too. I just enjoy walking around and the music they pump in.

Week Before or After Thanksgiving

Hi everyone! Just got back on Feb 2nd from WDW and booked a bounceback for Nov 17th thru Nov 23. This week is the full week before thanksgiving and we would be out of there the Sat before. Wondering for any Disney veterans out there, how the week before compares to the week after.Would love to see Christmas decorations and go to Christmas Party. I know there is more at Epcot the week after thanksgiving, but DD's birthday is on Nov 19th and it is the actual first year her birthday does not run literally into Thanksgiving week. Would love to have her turn six out there. ..........Question is, since Thanksgiving is later this year, do you think more resort decorations would be up during the week of 11/17-11/23 or do they still wait until after Thanksgiving? I do not need to go to CP in Epcot but care more about seeing resorts decorated especially WL Tree Osborne Lights. Also, the bounceback I got was for the whole week of 11/17 thru 11/23 and if I picked the week after Thanksgiving, the bouceback goes 11/30 only until 12/4 and then you pay regular the rest of the week. There is also a charter plane leaving a direct flight from my hometown airport that same week of 11/17. I keep hearing the week after Thanksgiving is less crowded and I can tell you the end of Jan is supposed to be less crowded too and there is no way the week I was out there that the crowd levels were 2 or 3's. It was CROWDED.....Anyone ever go the full week before and be out of park by the Sat BEFORE thanksgiving?

mklovesdisney,
We have gone the week before Thanksgiving 2 times and this coming year will be our 3rd. We love this week!! The crowds have been low to moderate both times we have gone. The weather has been really nice to. Usually in the 70's. Also both times we have gone Christmas decorations have been up by the middle of the week. We stay at the WL and the decorations are AMAZING!!!

THANK YOU! I really hope to see the Wilderness Lodge Lobby more than anything else. I am thinking the crowds can't be more than what we endured last week.

Welcome! I think you will like POFQ. The pool should be perfect for your dd. The waterslide is for younger children. There is only one bus stop to deal with and nothing is too far from the lobby/food court. We had a beautiful garden view corner room when we stayed 3 yrs ago in Bldg 2. I hope your dh loves it, too! We are taking a good family friend(34) and she likes some disney movies but not much else disney and we assured her that she'll love it anyway! Now that your dd is old enough, I highly recommend Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. You can book 6 months ahead. My dd just loved the experience of transforming into a princess and then eating at Akershus(Norway in Epcot) one year and then Cinderella's Royal Table last year. Have fun making all your plans!
