Sorry I dropped out for awhile, but I am back just in time for the end of one trip and ready for the beginning of the next PTR.

I have a good excuse I had a nephew to get married in Arkansas. Then another nephew graduated from Ga. Tech(mechanical engineer). Plus all the Christmas planning and decorating, make for busy days and not much Dis time.

Once again I loved going to Disney with your family by reading your trip report. I look forward to the upcoming PTR.

Love the best of the best.

CSR is a great moderate with deluxe features. You get all the in room amenities of a deluxe, separate shampoo and conditioner, lotion, real cups with the coffee maker and queen beds. They have a food court and a sit down restuarant as well as the grab and go. With the dining plan, you will get the best bang for your buck at Pepper Market.

As far as resorts you have deluxe inside with a moderate outside and price.

I look forward to hearing all about the experience.

Is there any way you could work out a 'fly down Friday night and fly back home Sunday night' weekend trip or maybe take a Friday or Monday off only and be able to do both trips? If time is more the factor than money is, maybe you could work out both and just make two shorter trips. Just random thoughts.

We are hoping to maybe meet Trent up in Panama City for a weekend in late May. If we get to do that, that will make the long stretch from March to July so much nicer.
Oooh, I like your "dual trips" idea....good thoughts. It is both a time & money decision; but as I sit here and think it through, if I go down in May I might not spend the $$ on park tickets and just explore the resorts and DTD. Hmmm, there's an idea!

I am honestly leaning more towards 4th of July time. We're going on the Dream in February, so it's not like I won't get a Disney fix then. I am going to talk to my sister and brother over Christmas this week and see what their thoughts are. I am thinking that if plane tickets are a good deal, we'll fly; otherwise, we'll make a road trip of it and make the trek down from Iowa. I like road trips anyway and it would probably save me about $500 in plane tickets, at least.

Now I am off to find the price on a room at Pop and check the DVC point charts, in case we would want to rent points. What are the chances that a Pin Code or a promo would come along for July? Well, a girl can dream!

I could take a no parks trip and be very happy. There would be shopping in DTD and resort hopping, and you could even ride the monorail though Epcot and at least feel for a moment that you were in a park. You could see animals at AKL andwatch Wishes from the Polynesian beach. There's lots to do. You could even pay separately for Blizzard Beach or Typhoon lagoon, if you like to do those, and that wouldn't be as much as a park ticket. You could go over to Fort Wilderness and do the campfire & movie and see the horse barns. There would be plenty to do that would make for a much cheaper but still awesome trip, and you'd get to have the DIS meet with Anita and Jackie!

I thoroughly enjoyed your travels, was so great that you went to WDW instead of the beach.

I hope that you & your family have a wonderful Christmas & the snow that is coming won't stop everything in Atlanta!
