Congratulations on going back next year. We usually go in early Dec, but I home school. My parents have been near the end of May and thought that was a good time to go. I don't think I could handle the hot part of the summer. But, if that was the only time I could go I would find a way to deal with it.

We were the "bad" parents last year and took ourdaughter out of kindergartenout for a week in December. She didn't miss a thing at school and we had no wait times all week. We had the best time. We thought that the VMMCP was too crowded. We won't do that again. have fun planning.

WOO HOO! Another trip! Sweet!

Well, here is my 2 cents as far as your dates are concerned; I would say if you're OK with pulling Ally out of school, how about say late April? The weather would be nice and then you'll be in between most of the spring break people and the end of school travelers.

But I also vote for Christmas time...as I'm sure you know we're going this Christmas and it's WONDERFUL! Yes, it's crowded but to me, nothing beats seeing the World all decked out for the holidays!

Sounds like you have a busy week - take care!

Yay for the hubby saying he wants to go again next year. :D

Personally, I would go over Christmas Break...weather is nice and mild, christmas decorations are up...just gorgeous! Sure, a bit crowded, but when you're at Disney who cares, ya know?
Next Trip:
December 2015!!!

We've already decided to go back the week before Memorial Day next year which is the 22nd-29th since that will be after school gets out and before the big crowds. We were thinking of checking out free dining but both girls will be in school in 2010 so that wouldn't be near as easy to work out. As Lindsey gets older it is getting more difficult to plan during school - seems like they are testing for something all the time. Maybe we'll see ya again next year!!!
GREAT NEWS!!! seems this year was a winner for return trips for all!!!

the poly looked great; but, I'm into this new thought I want to try them all what other resort do you think ya'll may like. The Grand Floridian looks like a great place to take little girls--it looks so victorian.
Good Luck! with your search and decision

Ok, officially signing in now.
Can't wait to read more.
I don't know that spring break is more or less crowded, but we are planning the beginning of March as my husband has a winter break on top of the spring break, so we are going that week. I heard March weather is very nice.

Hi Jessica!!! Thanks for joining in! I'm so glad that you found my TR--especially since you live sooo close!

Ladies--be patient with me! This has been a BUSY week and I'm frantically trying to put together my Photopass photobook before my pictures expire! Hang in there--I will be updating soon! I promise!

Hi Becky...

Take your time getting back to us and your TR...we'll be here!

I know the feeling, my TR is dragging out...w/ my busy schedule...I'm about to start Day 5) of 8 and we went the end of March...

Can't wait to see your photo book....please post pic's after you get it!

Wonderful news about the pre-planning of another trip next yr!

I wouldn't over worry the school thing too much either...K is easy to pull from, it get's harder as they get older.

I like the advice of planning around school vacations and such and maybe just pulling for a day or two. That is what we plan for our trip next year November. but when my twins (now incoming 5th) were in K, we pulled them out for a week to spend their 6th b-day there in May.

I loved the Poly too...but I also think it is fun to experience other resorts too.

Can't wait to see what you decide and plan, plus the end of this trip.

PS just a TR tip....in your title (from your original post) when you post new posts to the TR...if you add New and the date....it can help us know when you've updated better....JAT.
