After doing a few calculations just to compare the 2 plans. I think the QSDP w/ one character meal is definitely the way to go for us-- especially, since we are leaning toward a character breakfast on our last morning. We really liked all the snack credits and the refillable mugs on the QSDP last time and not worrying about saving out extra money for tips was less hassle as well.

If I was going to stay Value....and remember with a family of 5, it's not really an option....I'd do POP. I fell in love with it looking at all your TR pics!

T-Rex sounds great especially with the boys! Mine are a little big for the whole dinosaur thing, but I think even they would enjoy it!

When you fly out of Syracuse, shout really loud and maybe I'll hear you! It's only an hour from my house!

Can't wait to hear more!
I agree!!! I'm very happy with our plans! Even if we are only able to tackle 2 parks this time and only be there for 5 days. I'm just thrilled that we can go back for any amount of time!!!

I can't say it enough!! Pop is such a fun resort!! I'm glad you liked looking at all my Pop TR pics because I plan to take a ton more this trip!!!!

Right now, I think we may have narrowed it down to either an Ohana's breakfast or T-Rex. When we visited DTD last April and walked inside T-Rex so the boys could do their Build-a-dino. Noah was just in awe of all the dinosaurs he saw everywhere. He couldn't look at them long enough. It was so cute!

Oh you've got me seriously thinking about it now. I really do love the character meals and there were a few I wanted to try for the first time this trip, but if the free dining isn't extended.... Can I still make ADRs if I haven't purchased the dining plan by the 180 day mark? (Sorry to hijack Angie!)

How much longer is the walk from the 50's to the Classic Hall than the walk from the 80's section? Is it pretty much the same?
We loved the 50's section better. When we were in the 80's/90's section we walked across the parking lot to get to the Classic Hall and the buses. Our rooms in the 50's section were literally 10 steps to the Classic Hall. Really. I counted. It was our luck to get that location in the 50's building, but even if you were to get a farther room, I'd recommend it also for the bowling pin pool. It was less busy than the other pools.

It ends up being an extra $100, which sounds great at first but then you have to add in the price of tips for each of the meals and extra money for snacks since we use the snack credits for breakfast plus the refillable mugs. (DH has to have his refillable mug) The quick service plan will give us 2 CS and 2 snack credits a day which allows us to use one snack credit for breakfast and then another for a snack at the park later on that night. The boys also like the fact that they get their own refillable mug with the plan.
That does sound like the best plan. You're swaying me....

Angie! I'm so happy for your unexpected April trip. I enjoyed your TR and am thrilled you get to go back so soon as I know you didn't think that would happen. PIN codes are the bomb!

We'll be heading to the "Land" right when you get back from the "World" (well actually the "Adventure" but...you get the idea )

Keep trying on the ADR's, I am sure something will open up.

2 days....I take it you don't plan a whole day at the WP then? DQ is a couple of hours, I would probably lean towards one more day. One thing to consider but it only makes sense if you are not doing DQ is that when we priced it, on the multi day tickets the WP tickets alone were cheaper than the "and more" add on. But I think if you plan to do DQ then it makes sense.

What a lovely time to be going there!!! I flower and garden TR's!

YAY!! I'm so glad you liked staying in the 50's section. The boys are really excited to swim in the bowling pin pool. It looked much quieter when we were walking around the resort last time. Which is good, because as fun as the Hippy Dippy pool was-- it was soooo busy. It felt like I was constantly ducking...either because I was being sprayed by the water sprayers or dodging balls that were flying past my head.

Yeah...gotta love Ohana's!! I could really go for some of their yummy juice right now!!

Yay! I'm so glad you found me and decided to join in!! I was so thrilled to get a PIN code!!! I should actually thank you because before my August TR ended, you suggested checking out the Disney website and looking into a trip and then saving it. I don't know if that's what did it but if so...THANK YOU SO MUCH for the idea!!

I decided on booking only 2 days as of right now because our flight doesn't get in until late afternoon on Monday. (later flight= better price) Anyways, I figured we wanted a full MK day, a full Epcot day, A waterpark/DTD day. The boys want to go to Disney Quest...me not so much. (I'm really not an arcade kind of person) but I have been holding them off for the last 2 trips. I figured we would do the waterpark in the morning/early afternoon. Then DTD/Disney Quest that night. It's really the last day that makes me wonder whether we should add an extra park day. We need to be on the DME around 4:00pm. I'm not sure it would be worth it?? or even what park to choose...probably DHS since we went to AK last time.

We can't wait to go back for the F&G Festival!! It's so beautiful!

Hi Tracy,

Thought I'd jump in...You can make ADR's without having the dining plan. So at 180 days, if they still haven't extended the free dining but you want to book a few character meals just in case, you could. However, if you ultimately decide to do the QSDP later on, then you can always cancel. (is that what you're asking??) If not--maybe Missy can jump in and help. When did they extend free dining last year?

Hey...I just noticed your new ticker!!! Love it!!!

Well, I went back thru my PTR and found July 26th as the date they extended the free dining into November/December so there's quite a while to keep my fingers crossed. My ADR date is the beginning of June so I think I'll go ahead and book them and then cancel if need be. Thanks ladies!!

I couldn't help it! I needed the ticker . I haven't booked yet, still putting numbers together .... Universal is officially out - over $400 just for park tickets and then there's transportation, food...

I sure thought that I had posted a day or so ago but apparently I didn't. I think that your boys will like Disney Quest. I am not a gamer either but even I had fun when we went. There are things for all of you to do together and that makes it all the more fun.

You already know that we love the water parks. I can't believe it took us so many trips before we ever even went to one.

Good morning Angie! Is it raining where you are today?? UGH...rain and mud, I'd almost prefer snow!

Just wanted to chime in on DisneyQuest. I am not an arcade girl either....actually find them very boring! That said...I really enjoyed DisneyQuest. There are a lot of interactive games that the whole family can play....the Buzz Lightyear game, the Pirates attraction, Aladdin virtual reality game, and the virtual create-your-own-rollercoaster were AWESOME! They also have a cool interactive pinball game and a Jungle Cruise attraction that is pretty neat. Of course, the regular video games are there as well, but we didn't spend a whole lot of time on those. All in all, I'd go back. We spent about 3 hours there on the first night we arrived.

Feel free to go back to my TR for some pics and a look at how much fun we had!

Just my 2 cents! Have a great day!

Sending some pixie dust your way that they extend free dining this year!! (I'll keep my finger crossed as well.) I know how much of a difference it makes on the price....and it really is so nice to be able to look forward to a sit-down meal after a long day in the parks. Hmmm...I wish they offered it for April!! Oh well...

Sorry, that Universal is out. An additional $400 just for the park tickets--wow!! I think that is one of the reasons I keep changing my mind about going to Sea World for one of our days because I know once you have paid for anything over a 3 day pass at Disney it's only a another $25-$30 extra to add on another park day. It's hard to dish out that extra when I know that just by staying at Disney I wouldn't have to.

So, glad to hear that you enjoyed Disney Quest. It was the one of the things I was least looking forward to this trip. But, the boys have been begging to go since they heard about on our first trip. I can't hold them off any longer...trust me I've tried.

Your TR water park pictures are really helping me get excited to go. I'm still not sure about the water slides but you all look like you are having sooo much fun riding them.....I may reconsider.....well maybe.

Hi Missy!! It is raining here today. It's so depressing! There is nothing worse than rain and mud....yuck!! The only bright side is that I am seeing a little grass finally after a loooooong 2 months. Spring can't get here fast enough!! On the other hand, since it's been so cold, we haven't been able to get outside much this year.We've wanted to take the boys tubing but haven't had a chance yet. So...Let it snow! (it's going to anyway)

So happy to hear another positive review on Disney Quest especially coming from a non-gamer like myself. I went back and checked out your DTD/Disney Quest night on your TR this morning and it does look like so much fun!! I had forgotten you had all been chosen as "Pirates of the Day". Did you by any chance....make it over to the Disney Songmaker or Animation Academy while you were in there? Hmm....now they sound fun to me!

Thanks for the info!! Hope you have a great day too!!!!

Itinerary and Random Stuff:)

Hi again!! I hope everyone is having a great day so far. I started my day with a smiling Minnie staring back at me!! (well, from my coffee mug..that is!) It was a nice reminder that we are officially down to 76 days. It also reminded me that I need to get into gear and think about a countdown calendar for our upcoming trip. We offcially start counting down at 50 days. Last year I got a cool DISign from the Design boards that said "2009, Counting down to our Walt Disney Vacation" or something like that. I stuck some post-it's right smack in the middle of a Mickey head numbered of course from 50 days down to 1 and each night the boys would pull one off. I also added Disney jokes, trivia or whatever to each page just to make it more fun. I like the idea but I'm thinking of doing something different this year.....Anyone got any ideas??? Oh...I almost forgot..at 25 days we make a countdown chain. Yes...we like to countdown here! Can you tell?

I thought that I would share a more detailed schedule of our trip and see what you thought. The only thing I'm not sure about right now is the EMH days. We loved them last April and if you happened to read my last TR you would know we are early birds anyway so they work perfectly for us.....except.....well you'll see.

Monday, April 12th
We'll be leaving our house around 8:00am. We decided to opt for the later flight on this day because of 1. the price (much lower) and 2. The first day is always so tiring between the 3 hour drive to the airport, the 2 hour wait before we take-off and then the almost 3 hour flight. We don't seem to get much accomplished anyway.
We should be arriving at Orlando Airport around 5:00pm. We'll proceed to the DME counter and off toward Pop Century we will go. Thought we would check in and grab a bite to eat, maybe do a little shopping, visit the arcade or even take a quick swim. (although that will depend upon the weather)

Tuesday, April 13----EMH/Epcot day
Rise bright and early and grab some muffins, fruit etc in the food court. (using our snack credits) Head to Epcot for EMH. We went for EMH in August and loved getting to the park just as the sun was coming up. It was very beautiful. I'm sure it will be even better with the F&G Festival going on. We may decide to head back to Pop for a couple hours in the afternoon for a quick rest. (depends how the boys are feeling?) Then back to explore WS and watch Illuminations!! YAY!! I'm so excited for this! Believe it or not after 3 trips this will be our very first time seeing Illuminations.

Wednesday, April 14--Water park/DTD/Disney Quest day
We plan to hit the water park (TL or BB?--not sure yet which one?) until early afternoon. Then to DTD for dinner and Disney Quest for a few hours.

Thursday, April 15---EMH/Magic Kingdom day
Same as day 2...bright and early, muffins , fruit etc.,etc. Then head to Magic Kingdom for EMH. This is the day that makes me unsure of going during EMH. In Epcot, it's a pretty sure thing that we will probably take a quick break in the afternoon. But, with Magic Kingdom I would like to stay as long as possible....maybe no break. We would really love to see the afternoon parade this time. (another thing we haven't experienced yet) But, yet I hear that EMH afternoon's are horrible and this is Spring Break remember? I never feel that we have enough time in Magic Kingdom and even if it's just exploring Tom Sawyer Island, or finding a place to sit and relax and people watch. I just really don't want to leave the park.....although we may have to depending again on how the boys feel.

Friday,April 16---Last day....Character Breakfast????, Miniature Golf?, DTD??? OR another Park day?

This last day is the day I am most unsure of. Do we take it easy and go to a character breakfast, and then maybe head over to Winter Summerland for some miniature golf (the boys love playing miniature golf!!! )Then if there's time head back to DTD for some last minute shopping. OR do we just add an extra park day?? Honestly, I'm leaning toward the first option right now. On our last trip we spent our last day at AK and although it was so much fun! In the back of my mind I was always aware of the time and if we could do this or that. Plus we were late getting back to the resort which caused alot of stress on my part. I guess I'm hoping to avoid that this time. But on the other hand I'm sure I would really miss not visiting AK or DHS if we could. Hmmm.....

There's the itinerary so far...at least a rough draft of it anyway. Any suggestions...or thoughts??

Random Stuff

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We kept busy here and even decided at the last minute on Saturday to take a 2 hour drive and go shopping to visit one of my favorite stores....Target! I'm sure that's not what you were expecting!! But, for someone who rarely makes it to one because it takes 2 hours to get to (yes, 2 hours) it's exciting! I ended up picking up each of the boys a few Buzz Lightyear journals from their dollar bins. I figured it would be really cool if each night while we were in Disney to write down a few favorite moments from the day.

We also hit Old Navy and were very happy to find that they were having 50% off their clearance prices!! Love a good sale!! Got a few shirts and the boys and DH each got a zip up hoodie to bring down to Disney in case it gets chilly at night. The best part....they were each about $ 4.00 a piece. We stopped and had a nice dinner before we came home which was nice since we don't splurge very often. Noah and I shared a brownie dessert....ice cream, hot fudge, caramel sauce...oh so good..but bad idea since I'm hoping to lose a few pounds before we leave.

So, yesterday after watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. (it was cute movie by the way) and sharing some buttered popcorn. I decided it was time to dust off the Wii fit and start getting busy.....and not to brag but I'm still the hula hoop champion!!! (at least in this house anyway!)
Overall, a great weekend!! Hope yours was too!!!

I can't wait to hear what countdown ideas you get. Ours was a calendar we crossed off every night and I'd love to borrow an idea for something different.

Your itinerary looks great! Love the relaxing travel day. You can't beat it and the Pop has so much to do.... it's nice to ease into things. Your Epcot day sounds good too -- you will love Illuminations!

For your water park/DTD/DQ day, have you considered that Blizzard Beach has the miniature golf right there? And I can't remember if you've tried Wolfgang Puck in DTD but I'd recommend it if you haven't! We went to their TS but I've heard great things about the CS too.

I've never gone during Spring Break but we've never taken breaks during EMH days in the parks, and I've not really noticed a difference in crowds. I'd plan to go for the day and like you said, people watch or go to TSI if you need a break. I've also heard really great things about the Contempo Cafe CS in the Contemporary Resort. You'd be leaving the park but its just a short monorail ride over and back and would be a nice relaxing thing to do.

Taking it easy on your last day sounds good too. A character breakfast and DTD shopping, swimming and packing.... BB is close to the Pop right? I think so... maybe head back there too for the mini golf. You can always add more time to AK and DHS next time!

Too funny about Target. I'm in southern Ontario so it takes me 2 hours to get to one too! Yay for the journals!!! Wii fit -- sigh, good idea.

Hey again Angie!

First....love the plans! As far as the MK day goes, it IS spring break so you'll have to keep crowds in mind, but maybe just sitting on the dock on Tom Sawyer Island will be enough of a rest for you guys. It tends to be less crowded there and it's shady. With only one day, I know you'll want to get as much in as possible.

For your last day, I'd stick with your original plan. I hate to have to watch the clock at a park so we get back to the resort in time to make the DME bus. It's just not fun....take the time to enjoy the little time you do have!

I am at your Hula Hoop champion comment! I am the *****puted Hula Hoop Champion here as well! Yee-Ha! I am also the ski jump champ, the marble game champ, and the bubble game (the one where you go down the river without popping it) champ! I am so competitive...if one of the boys beats my score I work hard to beat them back!

Oh...a countdown idea. Have you thought of using the Mickey Heads from Home Depot to make a calendar...then you can put cool stuff on the back like trivia, etc and turn one over each day. There are some great ideas on here...do a search and see what you can find. We just do the chain, but you already have that one!

Hi Angie! I'll be curious to see what ideas people have for countdowns. We did the Mickey head countdown last year - 30 or so days?? We put Disney themed stickers over the number on each Mickey head. We've done the garland thing too... the kids really love pulling off a ring each day. Not sure what we'll do this year, but we probably won't start until Easter. We only leave 18 days after Easter so I may end up starting it earlier, but I don't want the kids getting too wound up about it. I'll let them look forward to Easter then we can move on to Disney!!

I'm also anxious to see what you decide about the waterparks... I still haven't decided which waterpark we'll be visiting.
