DH and I have been to MNSSHP on 10/31 for the last two years and thought it was great. Be sure to use photopass in the park so you can get special MNSSHP borders when you get home. It is full but not crazy busy and after 10 it quickly empties.

It'll be me, my husband, 1.5 year old and 5 year old (be there on his bday). Woohoo
Same time as us!!! We're staying at OKW and checking in on the 31st. I can't wait.

Gotcha on the first page!!!

I want to know when everyone is going. We just booked our room this past weekend from October 30 - November 6th at POR. Those going will be DW, DS(20) and DD(11). We are driving from Ontario to WDW, straight through. We have driven the last three times and as this will be the first time we have 3 drivers, the drive should be much easier.
My DD's best friend, also 11, and her family will be joining us in Disney. They are flying down and checking in the same day we are but they are staying two extra nights. This will be their first time to WDW. We will be doing MNSSHP on the 31st.
That is within our dates as well!!! We were planning on staying at POR, but our friend was able to get us a really great rate at OKW, so we switched. I'm excited, but nervous. Don't ask me why...I'm not paying any more for the villa than I would have the room, but I don't do well with change. Go figure....

Morning, everyone!!!!

My morning didn't start out so great (accident scene on my way to work), so I needed some Disney to get me in a better mood. Ugh!!! Accident happened right in front of me and, suit and all, I started working on the worst car. Poor guy in the driver's seat didn't even realize he lost consciousness. Not the finest start, but certainly not the worst either.

Anyway....first post is updated. I was also able to search for a few people that were at the bottom of the list and update their dates and/or locations. If you have any updates, please post and I'll make sure you are updated.

On another note: I am so excited I can make my ADRs on the 4th!!!! I have heard people are having issues with the "new" website, so I might try the backdoor to the old website and make my reservations there if I can. That is such a busy weekend for me: Friday we go and see Iron Man 3, Saturday at 6am I can make our ADRs, then all day Saturday is Free Comic Book Day (and, yes, I will be at my local comic book store ALL DAY!!! lol), and on Sunday my son is participating in the regional Jr. Maccabi Games. Busy, busy, busy.

So what is going on with everyone? I know most of us are on the FB page too. Hope everyone is doing well and that you all have a great day!

I don't know how I missed this thread, but I just found it. Yay! Dh and I are going to celebrate 30th anniversary, right now we're booked at asmu for Nov 16 to the 21st. But I'm waiting for airfare prices to come out. If's gonna be cheaper to fly out on wed we will. This will be our first trip with no kids since our honeymoon and first trip to wdw with no rental car.

So glad you found us!!!

A trip to WDW by yourself....that sounds fun! My husband and I have been trying to get down for a long weekend, but airfare costs seem to get in the way. (Maybe I need to convince him to move closer)

falcon - send me a PM with your real name, location and FB profile pic or your email address and I can add you to the FB group. We've got some great discussions going on over there.

And, as the countdowns get closer to 180 days....let the power-planning begin!

I'm not sure if the Disney site has them or not, but the TA calendar as well as Touring Plans both have the fireworks and parade times. Do you need links or want me to post it for you?

Just added an extra night onto the start of our vacation. We'll be picking my DH up at work @5pm on Sun Nov 24th and then heading down to Florida. We are checking into AKV Kindani on the 26th. Can't wait.

We are only doing three table services. Did I mention that already? Anyway....we are going to do Coral Reef for my 13 year old daughter (turns 14 right after we get home form WDW, so we're celebrating down there). I am planning on contacting the bakery and get her a two-tiered minicake for her dessert there. We always do lunch at Tusker House. We love the food and the fact that they don't rush us. It's going to be interesting now that it's a character lunch....that will be a totally new experience for us. And....I am saving up for dinner at O'hana. I've read the reviews and it looks like a great experience for us. And I'm hoping we can watch Wishes from the beach at the Poly after dinner.

So...that' our plans.

I'd like to see the dining rooms for Be Our Guest; I think seeing the snow falling would be cool. But the menu doesn't tempt me at all.
