Same here,my mom's the only one but at 70 years old I can't push her too far. Most of the people I work with don't understand why I'm so into disney. They think I should go other places but there is no other place I care about. Anyway, I can still visit Japan,Germany and Italy without leaving the US. Well, have to go do the grocery shopping. Catch up later

Oops! Two of you have the same avatar and I thought you were commenting back about the Villain party. On Touring Plans I rechecked an the days they are showing higher crowds are the days with EMH's. So, I guess we can avoid parks with those hours and not have to wait in line.
The Avi's make it difficult sometimes! LOL. I looked again at TP and the highest I saw was 4.9 on 9/28 during our stay and that day is slotted for DTD. Even so, 4.9 is not bad at all. SO excited!

Good morning Joe and Pluto - thanks for all of the updates. If the general release date is confirmed for 5/9 as expected from all the chatter, do you know if the Disney Visa release date is confirmed now too? Is it 5/6?

It wasn't the release date that was confirmed, but the fact that it is on for September. TAs have been receiving their materials. What Pluto was trying to say was, the pieces that have to fall in place are falling in place.

1. Disney decides the dates and puts it into their system on the back end.
2. Disney sends the information out to the TAs a week or so prior to launch.
3. Launch

WOOHOO! OK, then I have a question for ya'll. Now that we were planning on spending ~4200 on 10 days paying for DDP, if I wanted to upgrade to a Mod or Dlx, which would you suggest? I want ease of travel between parks (we usually stay at Pop because of the dedicated buses) and something the kids will enjoy. I was thinking AKL but that nakes me pay 500 more so that seems silly but I am not sold on the Mods. Anyone have awesome experiences with any Mods?

Your suggestions.......go!

Last trip we upgraded to a mod. It was nice to have a sit down restaurant on site, but honestly we never got around to eating there. The pool was nice, and so was the hot tub. But honestly I'm quite happy with my Value resorts. If I ever upgrade again I would go to Dlx, but have a hard time paying that much $.

Love love love Port Orleans Riverside, but the buses can be on the slow side. For whatever reason, the higher up you go in resorts, the sower the buses can be. Regardless, they have two sinks in the bathroom, and the rooms are larger. Now the deluxe rooms are fantastic, if you don't mind paying the price, and you can walk to Epcot from those resorts, or ride the monorail from the magic kingdom resorts, so transportation to some places become much easier.

Ya know, I have had such great experiences at the Values, that I have never wanted to try a mod. Afraid I would be disappointed for the money. But, if I had the money would jump right to a delux. Poly has always been my dream. As a kid we stayed at Contemporary and am sentimentally attached. I was doing some recent pricing at AKL and was surprised it was more affordable than other deluxes. Do love the idea of mono resort for convenience. Good luck with your decision!!!

Thanks for another confirmation. Got to admit I was hoping Pluto was going to say that Joe was right but that they were going to include end of August as well. I know it was a longshot of hope, but what can you do. Happy for the September travellers but we're going the last week of August. With 2 kids who are now Disney adults, it will be no DDP and no buffets this trip. I guess on the bright side we will have more park time since we will have less time spent in TS restaurants.

So now that the confirmation has been leaked all we are waiting to hear now is the official DVisa date! I vote it be Thursday, May 2. Do I have a second?

We have stayed all levels value, mod and deluxe. All Star Sports, CBR, POFQ, WL and Contemporary. My favorite was WL. However, I still enjoy the values just as much as the deluxes. Maybe I just haven't picked the right deluxe yet?

That would be nice, except there is no Thursday, May 4.
