just looked at the calendar ..... 31 days until we are Welcomed Home again!!!!

We are not telling the kids until the day we leave. I am so excited, plan to start packing in the next week or so.

We are usually at Disney in the summer, can anyone tell me the best type of clothes to pack? I am thinking mostly summer clothes, maybe a sweater or two in case it gets a little chilly at night.

Some advice from all you May WL Vets would be great.

TIA,

Robin

They have expanded as much as possible but there just isn't any more room to make it larger.
Thanks for the info!

I told my DD-11 last night about getting the WL bunk bed room and she screamed! She is so excited!

"We are not telling the kids until the day we leave. I am so excited, plan to start packing in the next week or so."
I think I did this wrong ...I was trying just to quote this part of the sentence...
Anywho


That is so cool!!! I always wanted to do that but was never able to pull off the surprise. I tried 2x but couldnt hold back like a month before or so: O.K. I think my husband and I might like Disney more than the kids I am sure there is a nice 12 step program for me somewhere..."Hi my name is Robin and I am obsessed with Disney" As far as what to pack we usually go the end of April or early May and summer clothes and a few sweaters and maybe some capris or leggins would great. Maybe 1 pr of pants for the night for the kids. I hope you have a great trip and good luck with the surprise for the kids!!!!!

Robin

There are two months that I feel that are the perfect times to visit here in Florida May & October. The weather is perfect:
Avg High 88
Avg Low 66
Our daily torrential afternoon thundershowers usually start toward the end of the month with the most precipitation on average occuring in June. You will still need to bring rain poncho's because we will have some showers.

You will not need sweaters maybe a hoodie or long sleeve shirt.

Have a Great Trip.

This is good to hear! We'll be there in 18 days (April 28-May 5) and I am really hoping for better weather than my first trip which was last September (lower-mid 90's and HUMID) It didn't ruin our trip..but I wish it would have been a bit cooler and a lot less humid!

May is just so nice, the crowd level is down because all the Spring Breaks are over and it is to close to the end of our school year for many locals to take their children out of school.

When I was still working it seemed each day in May I would tell my friend, "WOW this is a perfect DISNEY DAY." May was always the hardest time of the year to go to work everyday knowing WDW was 2 hours away.

Thanks to all of you for the advice. I am having a hard time not blabbing to the kids, but DH and I are really trying hard. Hopefully we can pull it off.

It is 70 degrees her in NY today.... perfect WDW weather

I too am like a Disney addict! When I got the Little Mermaid tattoo, it pretty much confirmed my disney addiction!

Looking forward to staying there in November.

And now...back to page 15 of this thread. Maybe by the time we check in, I will be through this whole thread!
We'll be there at the same time-in the same view! We stayed at AKL last time too (our 1st trip). The lodge looks amazing, doesn't it? I'm so excited!

Just back from our first trip ever to WL & absolutely loved it. Thanks so much to the original OP for all the information in this thread. It really helped alot!! The only issue we had at all was that we couldn't find our room.....LOL!! We had a ground floor courtyard view out by the pool, but when you leave the lobby you actually have to find the elevator that goes down to get to the room & that was the challenge!! Room was great, first time we've ever managed to get a king size bed (and we didn't even request it) in all our onsite stays!! Loved the night time water parade which we viewed from the windy/cool beach and the view of the fireworks from the beach. It was spectacular. Never got a chance to get in the pool - wanted to try the hot tubs, but they were always packed with little kids (some in diapers) so we gave it a pass!! I'm sure we'll be spoiled now & never want to stay anywhere else - it was just so convenient to everything!!
