My dd's birthday is Nov. 21, 1997! I guess it's a small world after all!
I hope you all have a fabulous trip - these little princesses and pirates grow up awfully fast.

Thank you! I will definitely see if I can get that book! I hope you have a wonderful trip too.

9/3 - 9/8
1 adult and 2 Disney adults (11 year olds)
BC w/ FD
6 day tix w/ PH and Water Parks
$3169.84

airfare BWI to MCO on AirTran
$779.40 (the most we've ever paid )

Total: $3,949.24

It sure was a lot cheaper to go when the girls were 9 and under. Then I would pay for the dining plan and use room discounts. This time it was $200 less to use free dining and pay full price for room.

You're welcome! Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney film. My birthday cake was topped with a big white chocolate Belle. You're going at a good time. I remember that the crowds kept on getting thinner each day after thanksgiving, with the exception of Christmas parade filming days.

Honeymooning at WDW on 9/25 - 10/5

$3127.20 for Coronado Springs w/ Free Dining Plan plus 8 day MYW Park Hopper tix. The reason for only 8 day tix is we are getting there late afternoon on 9/25, doing a Downtown Disney day mid-trip, and then leaving early on 10/5.
