Chip and Dale are no longer there. It'sDonald now.
Also Pooh is at 1900 PF for breakfast.

So it runs from middle of March through the end of May. So it will be my moms and sisters first time so I would want to fit both of their interest.
I would aim for the second week of March. most of the flowers will be out and ready to look at. The crowds should be less. I'm not sure when easter is, but I wouldn't go anytime with in 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after. Crowds will be insane.

I've only stayed at Pop, but it is very affordable. And you can see fireworks if you walk to the back side of the 50's buldings . Epcot and MK's. Then you have more money to do other things.

Something special would be to to the keys to the kingdom tour with your sister, but there is alot of walking with it. Also the segway tours are supposed to be really cool.
I suggest getting a book like the unoffical guideor passporters to learn all there is. The unofficaly guides goes on and on about there touring plans, but thats not for me, so I would block that part out of my brain and just read about the different activities. We can have a plan like a touring plan, when we never know for sure what time my little one will wake up. But it still gives alot of valuable info.

Thanks Jenseib we will be going in the end of the second week I think we are going to be in a crowded place but we will manage The Keys to The Kingdom sounds great I will see about the pricing and the walk. Money for other things sounds great. Maybe I wont tell mom so she won't think negative about it. She says Disney is alot of money.

I'll try to help with any questions you have... although I've only been to Disney 3 times. I don't know it all! I will re-read through your thread to see if there are any specific questions you might have that weren't answered.
Thanks anything will be helpful. I am thinking of starting a PTR for this trip I just want to get more ideas and actually come up with a plan before anything happens.

I second this. We've been to Disney the last 2 years the first week in March. While this year was busier than last year, it still wasn't bad. They are just starting to get ready for the festival during the 1st week. I can imagine that by the end of the 2nd week most of the flowers would be out. We were also in Disney this past October 19-24 and it was REALLY busy. We are thinking about the 2nd week in March next year as well.

Last year the first week of March was the ultimate. the slowest it's ever been for me when I have gone. LOL! I think becuase of when Easter fell last year, it made things out of whack and many spring breaks for colleges were earlier.

Thanks I will see if I can talk to mom and convince her that maybe an earlier trip may be a good idea. It's just with my sisters last yr and her graduating I don't think my mom wants to take her out of school earlier because she wants her to study and gradute on time.


GOOD NEWS MY SISTER MADE THE HONOR ROLL ALL A's ONE B.

You know where to go to see some character meals suggestions.

If you like Mickey you can't go wrong with Chef Mickey's. Or 1900 Park Fair dinner for Cinderella, prince, stepsisters, and the stepmother is a great character dinner too!

LOL Yeah I know I have a couple of ideas. Funny you just said that I was just rereading you trip report I just can't have enough I have to show my sister your Trip report so she can choose from your list. Thanks for all the help.


What about the guides to Disney? I don't know which one will give me more information. I bought the Disney World Savings guide from the exemployee. Do I need more? I was thinking about a special book if my nephew goes I might need it he had ADHD and he has Autism.

We also wanted to check out Tusker House Donald Safari Breakfast in AK. I've read that this is a good one. Plus if you can get a 8:00am ressie, you can be done around 9:00 and jump right on the safari.

I think you know my opinions on character dining too. LOL! We love it. I guess you should also see what characters your family is most interested in seeing. That may help narrow down where to go.
We love MK. but my mom,dad and sister went in Feb and that was their least favorite park. They said it was too much for kids. I disagree, but everyone has different interests.
Passporters makes a good guide. And the unofficial guide is good too, though I haven't had time to read the whole thing. The only thing I don't like about the UG is that it talks about their toruing plans alot, and we don't do a strict plan. And they suggest being there for rope drop, something we can never do.
But all the other info is great, and I ignored the touring plan talk. But I know some follow it to a T.

Birnbaum has great pictures, but even though they are supposed to be the official guide, I have found not all the info is accurate. They seem to be way off on the prices of things too at times. I think UG had the most accurate of prices.

Hey Lizet, hope this helps:

My favorite parks are:
Magic Kingdom is definately number one because of all the different themes and rides. Epcot is my second favorite, because of all the countries and test track and mission space. It's a tie between animal kingdom and MGM for me. They are both great.

For rides, you def. need to go on Expedition Everest in Animal Kingdom. Great Ride. Also, hit the three mountains in MK. Test track and mission space in Epcot, and RRR and TOT in MGM.

For restaurants, my favorite is Tepan Edo in Japan in Epcot. yummy. Also, Sci Fi in MGM. Another one is Cape May Cafe for dinner. Wonderful seafood! Cosmic Rays and Pizzafari are my favorite CS. Also, Raglan Road in DTD is sooooooo good! Please go there!!!!!!

Katie
