Been a while since I have visited the thread. Glad to see so many "Disney Dads" on here ! Quick question....Anyone have any experience in having to coordinate a trip for 21 family members to WDW ? We are going the week before Christmas with a free dining pin. What are my chances with getting everyone in the same restaurants TOGETHER ???
We are doing one Grand Gathering breakfast so that should be no problem. I'm just wondering about the regular ADR's.

Yeah, I was checking the other tread myself, wondering why no one was posting. Thanks for setting up "the deuce!"

We leave in October, and my 90 day window for ADRs opens on Thursday. Unfortunately, we're staying with my in-laws for the first week that we are there, so I have to call every day to set up new ADRs - no 90+10 for me.

march is good as far as weather. the only thing is spring break. it can get a little crowded. in the 80s we would go every year in march and stay at crb. i love it but the crowd level was high. now maybe it changed in 20 years, i havent been back in march in a long time. old port royal is the main "hub". the food court etc... alot of people like staying as close to that as they can.

Thanks to Emma's Dad for letting me know aobut this new thread! I wondered why I had not gotten any e-mail notices lately for the Dads Club.

Has anyone started a Dads club on Facebook yet? I think that might be cool too.

Hey, I never knew this thread existed! Our kids are all adults but I'm still a DIS Dad! In fact, our 28 yo Navy son will be heading down to WDW with us in October. We'll be taking advantage of his Military Salute at POFQ.

dvczerfs: Where are you located? We're in Williams Township, just south of Easton.

Oh, cool, hey there neighbor! (We live in Whitehall)

Our daughter turns 7 on the 30th of July. This is our second trip this year, and I'm hoping that visiting twice in one year doesn't become an addiction, LOL. With my love for Disney, I could see that happening very easily!

Just printing out some dining reservation info. For my Trip in 3 days.

anyway I noticed this in all the "Guest Polices"

"Party of 8 to 26: Please call Group Dining at (407) 939-7707."

Hope that helps.

That sounds like an awesome surprise! Make sure you have the camera ready to capture the moment!

WOW! I can't even think of 21 family members I'd like to have at WDW! Sorry... don't have any suggestions, but I do wish you good luck!

Woohoo! Another trip coming up! I hope you get the ADR's you're looking for.

I thought about a cruise, too. But I'd rather spend more days at the world than out on the water. Maybe one day I'll try another cruise. Haven't been to the World in March... but I hear it's BUSY!

Welcome to the new thread! Yeah... I can't believe what happened to Kevin's dad. You hear about these things happening every once in a while, but it's crazy when it happens to someone you know.

No problem! It was a confusing couple of days for the DIS Dad's Club.

I don't have the info with me (and I can't get to FB at work), but I started a DIS Dad's Club on FB a little while ago. Haven't done much with it yet, but it's there

HAHA! You said "addiction". We don't use them type of words here, Mr.

I'm sure that you guys will be pleased to hear that I added on to my upcoming AKL stay with 2 more nights at the POFQ. Somehow in the process I also got an ADR (online) at Le Celier for that Monday.

Fired up!
