Love a good competition! My dad and uncle were in a corps sponsored by the local Vikings Lodge back before I was around. Wish I could have seen them in action.

Newbie here! I have three kids (DD7, DS3 and DD1). We're about 242 days from our next trip (hoping the crowds aren't too bad in April - heard mixed things about that) staying at SSR.

We live in Western MA so hopefully don't have to worry too much about Earl, Fiona, etc.

Almost over...12 days until my "Hilton Vacation", 17 days to home....

Trennr...

Have fun, lemme' know what you think about the Dames Point Bridge...you can see Naval Station Mayport to your left, City of Jacksonville to your right---and possibly our cruise ship--also to your right...

That's just one of the bad reasons for going in September. We've been 4x in September in the past, and always were watching something. Thankfully they either moved elsewhere or never picked up enough steam to be more than just tropical storms. Hoping it all works out for you guys. You've been waiting for this one, I know.

I just cam across this thread, and love the idea, I did not go thru all 100+ pages, but I am a dad and love Disney.

We live just outside of Chicago and my wife and I have a 4 1/2 year old daughter. Our next trip is Oct 24-Nov5. We are driving down, have grown to love the drive down. We are staying the first night at pop (arrival night from straight thru drive. Then moving over to Bay Lake Tower for 3 nights then to the Beach Club for the final 7 nights. This will be my daughters 8th trip, yep 8th and shes not 5 yet. My wife and I honeymooned at Disney and bought into the vacation CLub on our Honeymoon, we own at the beachclub. I do all the planning for our trips, from reserving, to ADR's to which days what park. My wife just sits back and enjoys the ride. She always says if I die she will have no idea on how to plan a trip.

So either way just wanted to pop in and say I love the thread idea, as it seems on most threads its the women planning and conversing on the boards.
WELCOME!! Glad you found us. Each new thread has sure helped guys see that it's not just the females that are into Disney and planning and such - as well as just chatting and having a great time talking about anything else that comes to mind. Five threads - nearly 1200 pages combined sure attests to that!

We honeymooned at WDW too. Stayed at the Grand Flo. I so wanted to join DVC back then, but it took a long time until we could. But oh we are so enjoying it now.

******


BTW guys .... 4. That's right just 4 more sleeps until my DD and I head out for our Daddy Daughter Adventure! at AKV.

Welcome to the club! If my math is right, you're arriving the Saturday after Easter. I would think that the crowds would drop off pretty good about that time. But I've never been there in April before, so I'm really just making things up as I go. Good Luck!



=========
Well, we dropped DD5 off for her first day of Kindergarten today. She's about 4 inches taller than most of the kids in her class (she turns 6 in October), so DW is a little more at ease that she won't be pushed around too much. (She's also build like a middle linebacker, so that helps)
We spoke to her teacher at the open house last night and mentioned that she would be going to WDW for a week in early December. The teacher didn't have a problem - in fact, she asked if she could come too!

Exactly. DW called me to say the water is going quickly off the shelves. Wonder when the gas will be gone?

According to your ticker looks like you're heading at the end of April. That's when we normally go and have pretty good crowd levels. Check out my trip report for more details (link in my signature). HOWEVER... since Easter is late this year, I have a feeling there may be more spring breaks occurring late in April.
