I don't know how many meets we'll go to on our end but we'll definitely make it to a Dole Whip meet!!! I tried to make a home made Dole Whip... it still just didn't taste the same... so my hubby told me, "I guess we'll just have to go back and get one from Disney World." ahhhhh those are words a wife just wants to hear

My sister's trying to throw a monkey wrench in my plans! She was talking about going with me next year. I'm talking to today when I got home from work and she asks me if I think she should get an underwater camera? I asked her for what?? She said her trip to the Cayman Islands. I asked when we're going, since I've always wanted to go to the Cayman Islands. She tells me June! That's when her friends always go. I think it will be the week after Gay Days. I'd love to go on both but not sure I can swing the vacation time. I'll have to see. It'd be a tough decision if I have to choose.

We have it on our radar for next year!! Trying to find a "tolerable" group of friends to bring along. Just have to wait until our 7-month window to make DVC rezzies.

Saw this so I thought I'd post it here.. hope the link works!

http://networkedblogs.com/68Dpu Gay Days added the crowd calendar for 2011. The dates are estimated for now...

We've never been around Gay Days being that well we are a straight couple so we never thought of going around that time plus we generally travel to Orlando around Labour Day for the extra free day off ... I thought it started on the Saturday? The 2nd is a Thursday (which they list as a Gay Day)... what's your experience?

Gay Days always starts on Thursday. Gay Day at Magic Kingdom is Saturday.

If you want to take advantage of an extra free day off, there's Memorial Day. I love when Gay Days is the weekend following Memorial Day because it saves me a vacation day. I usually go down Memorial Day weekend and stay until the following Monday. There are kick offs and other events the entire week. But as for the parks, it starts Thursday with Animal Kingdom.

I will tell you there is no way we could eat enough Quick Service for the plan to be worth it!!

For adults you HAVE TO eat a minimum of $12 worth of food at EVERY meal and use EVERY snack credit at $4 to break even. If you don't want/need 2 drinks at breakfast and dessert at every lunch/dinner (some of those Quick Service desserts are vile) then you are better off without the plan. Trust me. I knocked my brains out over this issue.

We use the TiW card for table service but I seriously considered the Quick Service plan. In the end it would have cost DOUBLE what we ended up actually spending on Quick Service meals and snacks.

The problem for us is that the regular meal plan is too much food for us. the portions vs what we are used to at home + added heat we just don't eat that much and struggle to use the credits. I suppose I could stack reservations with more 2credit dinners or something Who knows... maybe a split stay and have regular dining on one portion of the split stay... hahaha I have quite a few months to mull this over!

I'm already jealous of everyone who gets to go next year. Who knows, maybe someday I'll change jobs.

Then, why not just pay OOP? If you're struggling to use the credits then you likely aren't saving any money with the DDP.

I agree with this. You really have to eat a LOT of food to make any of the dining plans worth it.

we are OK with the QS one, the regular one can get tough for us... but we are celebrating hubby's bday so I may get regular for a portion of the trip.. who knows.
