September 25-October 3. October 2 is the night we have Rose and Crown booked. I think the Electrical parade would be a nice ending to our vacation.

LOL - I had to laugh........... we hemmmed and hawwwed for over a year about DVC - after about 6 trips to the lodge, I told DH how much money we could've been saving ----- once he ran the numbers, he was convined - as we won't stay in anything less than a deluxe - NOT that we are resort snobs, but we like our space!!! LOL SO - HI Neighbor - Welcome Home!!!!!! You will absolutely LOVEEEEEE Kidani - it is beyond words!!!

OMG - our boys sound JUST alike - I think DS has been going through an "eat everything" stage for about a year now!!! He's 10 as well - I remember though, that my older boys did the same thing..................
My DH is a big guy though....... so, I'm sure he'll fill out like the other 2 - he's just so short (like me - I'm a runt) that he just looks like a little butterball right now!!! LOL

Wouldn't you think that since WDW is having to resort to all these promotions and discounts to fill the rooms it would be smarter for them to just cut their prices??!?!?
LOL Elin ............. I know - I saw awhile back the free dining for dec, but of course we can't get it staying on pts. BUT - the actual week we are going was blacked out anyway - but, from what I gather now, even that has changed!!! It's crazy

When we originally booked ADR's, we booked one night at Chefs de France (I don't know how good the view is from here, but we thought maybe we could see some if we are seated by the windows), and one night at Rose and Crown, hoping we could get the patio. At that time, we did not know they would be extending the run of the Main Street Electrical Parade, and it's only showing on nights when we have already things planned at that time. I have never seen this parade.



On the itinerary Don from AKL CL sent me yesterday, it specifically states Rose and Crown does not take seating requests (I already knew that). I explain that to DH last night, and he decides to have a fit about how we will see Illuminations from a good location with a seat and a tasty beverage, and I just keep telling him we will figure it out.

UGH!!! I almost spilled it last night, but I did not.

Vent over. Thank you for listening. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
LOL - well, hold steady and be strong and DON"T TELL!!! Just keep saying, we'll figure it out!!!

Ah the joys of keeping secrets from our significant others! If we didn't live them so much, they wouldn't make us so crazy. I lost count of the different times I've been keeping a secret from my wife and been tempted to ruin the surprise because she is pestering me. Maybe I just have bad timing. It seems whenever I have something planned in a few days, she complains, "when are we going to do X, we never go to X!" guess what ! We are going to go see/do X, Y, and Z, but it was suppose to be a surprise... Happy?!?!

So instead of having lots of surprises this trip to the AKL, she's well aware of what we are doing (for the most part)!

When we went to the Rose and Crown in November, we checked in early and requested a patio table to see the fireworks. They came through with one on the very end, with a fantastic but very breezy view.

I never went in Sept/Oct. Would love to but school so we usually pick the last week in August before school starts. We are ending our trip with the Wishes Dessert Party. I think we will do Fantasmic the first night. The second night 8/30 we will do the Electric parade even though we will see it the night of the wishes dessert party. I don't know if the view is that great from tomorrowland to see the parade.

Yes and no I'm really just keeping an eye out to see if our already paid for December flights go down in price. And if they should happen to, then we get a credit and that could be dangerous

HEY!!! WE are doing Fantasmic on the 29th. We should have a Fantasmic, hurry and get your seat meet. We are also doing Electric parade on the 30th. Oh...and my DS is 9 (boosted him up to 10 this year because the DDP for the kids is a joke for him). We are METS fans.......(and Boston fans....).

That sounds like a plan. You know that they start lining up at 6:45 for an 8:30 show.

We have Fantasmic dinner package that night at 4:45!! Maybe we can pick a place to meet about 6:00. That way we can pick up snacks for the 8:30 show. (my DS's will be ready for a snack by 8:30). Are you eating at DHS that day?
