Yay! You're going to have a great time.

We stayed at Coronado on our last trip to Disney, I really liked it. Felt at least as posh as AKL to me...a great pick.

Count me in for August!
We are staying at Pop, Aug. 18 - 31....13 days, our longest trip so far, so I'm very excited! Flying out of Buffalo. It will be our 4th August trip in a row! Hoping for another great bounceback offer this year!

Have started a PTR on the dark side, if anyone is interested... http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3061939
Of course you can still play . Some of our favourite Orlando experiences have been non-Disney related (hmmmm....probably should not have said that out loud on the Disboards but oh well ).

We are always wary of the heat but try to plan accordingly. Lots of pool time, and all waterparks (no theme parks for us). We also plan a few indoor days (the official "Plan B"!) in case a hurricane skirts the area and drives us inside for a bit.

We LOVE the Orlando shopping . The Premium Outlets, the Nike Clearance Store, and the Florida Mall are all must-do's for us. We are also planning on visiting the Mall at Millenia for the first time this August. So many deals to be had, and air conditioned .

Heading over to check out your PTR!

Still finalizing exact details, but we will be at Old Key West or Saratoga Springs from Oct 13-Nov.1 for our 25th anniversary. Driving down so we can hit the Nascar race in Charlotte on the way. Our hope is to stay in a one bedroom for most of the time at OKW, then maybe a week in a SSR studio - have our Premium DVC APs that expire on Jan 1 - already went for a week Jan 1-9 and used them - so looking forward to our longest stay ever, and with just the two of us (for now, as I'm sure the kids might decide to come for a week or so if they know there's a free pull-out couch available).

We leave next week for a couple days at BLT, then the Fantasy, and then back at Wilderness Lodge. So can't wait!

Just made the dining reservations for our August vacation -- we're bringing 11 family members for a week at the end of the month, staying at BLT.

We are taking our vacation from Aug 1-27, with our DL stay sandwiched in the middle of two 5 day drives from Northern BC.

I think we are doing 5 days in DL & DCA, 1 day at Legoland, 1 day at Univeral, a morning at the beach, and some down time.

ETA: We have now booked our Anaheim days for Aug 6-17.

How awesome!! MNSSHP is on my Disney bucket list. Except that by the time I'm able to travel in October (read: when my DS is no longer in high school or college) I will be in my 40's, not 4 . Oh well, Disney is supposed to bring out the kid in all of us, right?
