Terry,

What type of ticket media are u purchasing? Hoppers? Waterparks?

Just let your wife know...if she doesn't already have 3 alternate itineraries..since it is hurricane season that you may have a few days where you have rain all day or even worse the parks will be closed and you are confined to your room.

I would have contingent plans just in case you have a few days of rain. At deluxe hotels with indoor hallways they allow you to roam inside during a hurricane. At mods and values, you are warned to stay in your rooms, you may want to prepare and have snacks available and have things to do if you're stuck in your room. I've read if you wait til there's a hurricane warning, the food courts get jammed with people trying to stockpile food.....

Have u done Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach...I'm a big fan of TL myself......

We will be there part of the same time as you (SEPT 10th thur Sept 20th) and staying at Pop's too

Your family is beautiful I love reading about families who are able to take their children to Disney when they are young and can see them enjoy the magic.

I was 51 on my 1st trip (in 2006) and my daughter( 28 and 24)
This time we will be taking my 2 1/2 year old grandson
I too am waiting patiently for Sept hours
Like your Adr's
We planning a Chef Mickey breakfast, and Garden Grill and others.

I too was a "internet shy" but it didn't take me long to get to like being on the Dis and talk to so many nice people, and learn so many awesome to make our trip so magicial. I just be came a DIS vetern a few days ago
Have a good day!
I am glad you joined me on my journey. I like Grandmas ... I love hearing from other people about their planning and trips as well. Sept is such a great time to go. I am on my way towards the veteran status, but it will be a while.

We have purchased 10 day park hopper with the water park and more option. We have to plan for 3 non-park days, so if for some reason something happens and we do get stuck in our room for some reason, we have options... My wife is a HUGE planner, and I think she actually has about 7 different plans to fall back on... I relayed what you said, and she said worst case, we will ditch Florida and come down and stay with you, and hit Disneyland instead ...

I love TL a lot... I really enjoy the swim with the sharks... It is awesome to float and see all those fish so close to you... I love the wave pool, but I really love the relaxing float around the slow moving stream... I do have to say, I am a huge fan of the Summit Plummit, and can do that ride all day long ..

Watch it Daddy... you are close enough for me to throw a shoe at the back of that pretty little head of yours...

Although, from what your Mom tells me, your head was never small...

I am on board for your pre-trip reports. The pictures of your children with the characters are adorable. We are also going in September and staying at POP from the 10-19th and with the dining plan. Our Ds and his family including our 6 and 2 yr old grandsons will join us two days later.

Your choices for meals are good. I love the Le Cellier and the recommended Cyrstal Palace for breakfast is great. We are only 9 days away from making our adr's and I am so excited.

Looking forward to reading more of your planning and perhaps we will meet at the POP while we are there.

Sounds like you have a fun trip ahead of you as well (like you can have a trip to WDW and not have it fun )... We tried to get into Le Cellier last year and never did get in, so we are really hoping this year to get it reserved... We have heard such great things and want to try it... Thanks for joining us... We are like 16 days out from ADR's so I know how you feel...

  • Magical Express Envelope
  • Dining Tips (Of course each one is personalized for each place)
  • Mousekeeping Tips
  • MNSSHP Ticket Envelope
  • Other Misc Envelopes

My DW's planning binder (for all of her lists she makes )
Stroller Stickers to identify our's
Window Decals for the hotel room to show that we Dis!
Homemade Autograph Books
Epcot Passports
Lanyards with Pins for trading
Buttons to wear on us while in the park to show we Dis!
Pressed Penny tubes for what else, the pressed penny machines










Thanks Amanda aka BentleyGirl for letting us use your designs!

Another west coaster joining in! There aren't many of us on the dis so we have to stick together.


The pictures of your daughter as a baby with the characters are so precious! They brought a little tear to my eye and made me want another baby.......but then I came back to reality and remembered that I quite enjoy sleeping through the night and a diaper free house.

I love Crystal Palace for Breakfast....we've been there for all three meals and I think breakfast is the best. Plus, if you get an early booking, like 8 ish you get into the park before the herd and you can get great pictures along mainstreet and infront of the castle ........I call these butt free shots.

We've done that twice and it was great. We were always done by the time everyone was let in and were a little ahead of the pack.

You weren't kidding when you said your wife plans for disney 26 hours a day! I can't believe how organized you are and all the cute creative stuff! That's like drugs to the disney ocd sufferer.
