Question We are Soarin' to Disney;We're back! TR started! LINK pg 127

WE FINALLY BOOKED OUR 2010! DISNEY RETURN!!! Dayne has requested that we go on his Sr. spring break!! It just so happens to fall on what is suppose to be a low crowd time in WDW We are leaving Sat April 24 and returning home May 1...we are

We were suppose to return in Nov 2010; but, we Dayne has requested we go again when he can join us. So, we were than trying to plan the last week of May (before Memorial Day--to join some of our disser friends) but, Dayne's Sr trip is that week. So, we have decided to go the last week of April--due to testing LA has decided to try something new with their spring break this year; this was also reported to be a slow week (one of the slowest of the year) but, it seems to be picking up according the the UG CC.

Our list of characters!!

For those of you joining that have not met me and my family this past year let me start with introductions:

First, there is me, Connie 41, I'm the Disney addict!!! I could live there if they let me. But, I also love to visit other places around the country
DH, Danny 44,he is our beach bum; he would move to the coast if it were not for his ailing dad and of course his job!
DD-Gwendolyn 21,she is currently a college SR. (but on a five year path); she doesn't talk about traveling but if we don't include her she would be soooooo diappointed
DDbf - Joe 23, retired marine; currently living w/us as he is building a home
DS - Dayne 17, a HS Sr. and at the point he just does not know what he wants to do ; he too rolls his eyes and teases that I'm addicted. But, guess where he wants to go on his Sr. trip.... you guessed it WDW!!!
and DS - (for now we will call him) Peter Pan 3, loves everything Disney, dinosaurs, and safari animals...just the sweetest little man I could have possibly been surprised with
(my current dis friends know our little man/but we'll start with a nickname till a later time)




WE ALSO HAVE A NEW TAG ALONGS: Dayne has invited his friend, Luke. This is Luke's first visit to WDW and US/IOA (we had planned a trip with his parents back in 2002--but, his sister was killed in a car accident about three months before and the trip did not take place).

Hi Connie - count me in! I chose CBR and December 5th - solely on the fact that that is where we are headed and will be there this year on Dec 6th. I have never been to CBR but I think it has a little bit of everything for your family - the beach for your husband (he can lounge on the hammocks) and the NEW kiddie Pirate Pool should be right up "Peter Pan"'s alley!

Looking forward to seeing where this goes

I'm in for this one too. How exciting. I did choose 11/28 even though I had previously said 12/5. I can't commit. Of course I chose CSR because of the queen beds. I love this cast of "characters".

I'm so glad you started a PTR so I'll have somewhere to write.

Hey girl, I am joining in. I voted for Janurary only because it will get here sooner . I think a trip in November would be fun, because you can make it a Christmas trip. I am hoping we can go at Christmas this year.

I meant January 2010!!1 I would love this one!!; because it is so close. But, don't think it will happen. As Danny said we have to go to the beach BEFORE our next Disney tripa girl can dream and hope can't she!!

I hope ya'll are able to fit in a Christmas trip this year. If I know Danny we will probably do either the Nov or Dec trip because of the Christmas decorations and I have been saying for three years I want to see it. Although, Danny and the older kids want to do Universal for Halloween one year so Sept is pretty close in the running!! It will be hard to decide.

Hoping to get some input on the dates; along with why people would choose the dates...crowds, weather, etc.
They are the cheapest times of the year that I was able to find when pricing room only options.

Pretty smart thinking on your part. I guess by the end of the week I will do Day 2 at DHS. It's a good thing Marissa is gone so she can't get on to us.

If you (or me for that matter) can hang in there until Mid-December I'll be able to give you a great review of weather/crowds/CBR/etc. I went in 2006 during the second week of December and I honestly could not complain. The weather was great and the crowds were near non-existent! However, this trip was my very first, so I have nothing to compare it to. We were also traveling with 3 children under 5 so there were a lot of rides that we opted out of. I was also the nanny along to help with the kids, so I didn't have much say.

So, hang tight and after our trip I'll be back to tell ya all about it! Until then, let's sit back and enjoy watching the minute hand tick ever so slowly!

MY PLAN FOR NOW IS THIS:
TO LISTEN TO ALL THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF MY DIS PALS...
THAN sit with Danny and make a decision. I do think in October I am going to book two rooms. somewhere just so I can start paying on them. I can always swtich to a package and a different resort after we make a decision.!!!

SO, I'M HOPING Dana will bring back all sort of info about POP incase we need to go value--ASSp was nice it was just crowded and noisy--but, our room was very quiet, comfortable and very nice!!! for as long as you are in a room.

I am also hopping to hear about the park experience for each of the weeks we have chosen....Jen (Dec.)is going during one of those weeks and Dana (Sep) another., Heather is also going in Sep...BUT I AM HOPPING LURKERS WILL COME OUT AND SHARE ALONG WITH US!!!!

AND i WANT TO PLAN SOME DINING THIS GO ROUND!!!!

I chose Sept because of free dining and CSR for the queen size beds.
This Sept will be me and DH's second trip at that time in two years. It is also our anniversary. Yes, it was kind of hot but there were hardly any waits. We did ASSp last year and are doing ASMo this year to save money but I really hope to get to CSR one of these times.
Only 34 days left for me!

I voted Jan 30 2010 and POFQ.

I think in Sept you have a high chance of a TON of rain. Dec of 2010 will be BUSY! That leaves Nov or Jan. I voted Jan cause you get back sooner. (unless you met Jan of 2011 in that case I change my vote to nov )

Hi! Shannon!! over...

you think the first week of Dec would be busy???

and yes, I meant Jan 2010 but in reality I don't think Danny will let me swing that one...THAT IS MY VOTE!!! after that I don't know which one to go with...
I do wonder about Sept and tropical weather; I am watching to see what the tropics do this year and going back to see when it stopped in 2005/2006. Being from LA it is usually NOW - till about the middle to Sept. But, I do remember going all the way to the beginning of Oct before.

stop by again...
your trip is right around the corner
so excited for you...
Connie
