Ok, this is a fun game to play, so I'll join in again

Aristocat 65: August 28-Sept 5 Wilderness Lodge. I thought 8 days was enough, but is it ever enough?

PS Tagsmissy, did you ever find your unofficial guide? (I think it was you who lost it)

Yeah was me... never found it and of course none avail that I could find at the library.. they had of course 2008 which I own though have lent to my brother's family so they can prepare for their first trip. LOL They have only ever done DL so they will be shocked at WDW -- we have tried to explain the vastness but I think you really need to experience it to truly understand.

LOL they have made wishlists/things they are dying to do:

Nephew -- Expedition Everest
Niece 1 -- CHURROS!! and not freaking out and bailing on the Haunted Mansion
Niece 2 - "Am I tall enough for Rock in Roller Coaster yet?" We measure her ever other week at her request lol she's at the point that with shoes we think she'll be over the height requirement. And Dill Pickles -- anybody know if they sell the big dill pickles at WDW like they do at DL? I've never noticed.
Brother-- Expedition Everest and Dole Whip -- we're going to introduce him to Dole Floats
SiL -- Just seeing her family happy and making it clear she isn't riding the teacups
Hubby -- Rock n Roller Coaster and Splash Mountain
Me -- Just watching the kids and enjoying every moment of it and -- avoiding the teacups

You should have a lot of fun with all your family. They're lucky they have you to show them the ropes.

Our first time at WDW was for my 40th and when my DS in Texas heard we were planning to stay offsite ( we were DL vets-we didn't know) she luckily brought her family along, we all stayed at BWV and had a great time

Have a great Trip

8/20 - 8/23 POR
8/24 - 8/29 WL
leavng in 2 weeks for Ft. Lauderdale.

What airline has the direct flights? Wow! Because we are going to spend a couple of weeks in S. Fla, we are flying into one airport and leaving from another, making it a multi-city fare. Don't know why it cost extra to do this. But I haven't seen any direct flights at that price from SeaTac to Ft. Lauderdale or from Orlando back to SeaTac. We change in Atlanta.

Alaska Airlines has the direct flights (2 per day each way) SEA-MCO, MCO-SEA. They also code share with Delta, so some got a Delta ticket, but they're flying Alaska. In past years we have usually paid more for the direct ones, but they had some great sales this year. They don't fly direct to Fort Lauderdale though. (possibly Miami) I think the connecting flights while usually cheaper have more taxes/airport fees as they are paid per segment, so that can add a bit to the price.
