Maybe we might want to do Raglan Road early on while Fran and I are at VWL, or not. Like I said I have not even started to look at my spreadsheet. That's when I finally start to figure out what is good for which night.

We are definitely not good for going out on the night we arrive. No one wants to see Fran that night. I mgiht be OK, but not really good. Best that the two of us eat something in the room that I cook from our grocery delivery service!

This is all very exciting! Yay! planning is beginning!
Lets just see how it all works out. But that sounds like a plan. If I had to drop one, it would possibly be Cape May. We still have to fit the cook-out in between everything.

I just booked the night of October 2nd to add to the other dates, so now I have the 2 to the 6th booked. I will be leaving WDW on Sunday.

As I was playing with the on line booking, I noticed that the Sunday night was already booked, whereas the Wednesday was available. Because I didn't want to have to move, even if I was willing to, I decided to take that night and I would deal with my schedule when I get it.

Seems like you've added a night!


Maybe we could all do fantasmic! dining together. That would make 4 of us on the pontoon; if Fran and Alison don't want to do it. I could check around; there are other Aussies going to be there at the same time.....maybe we could drum up enough interest.

I have always booked Pontoon boats with Disboarders & it has always been fine. Another option for wishes is the Pirate Dessert Party if you don't get enough others to share the cost of just the pontoon boats, but it is pricey in itself.

http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/tou...eworks-voyage/

We have done it, the interaction with crew is hilarious.

I would only stay another night if I get a T/Th schedule. I hope we can plan the cookout, and either Boat or Fantasmic within the days I am there. I think a MNSSHP is another possibility, and if I have to miss something, that would be OK, because I really do enjoy them, but they are walking intensive.

I think my itinerary is firming up. I haven't posted on my PTR yet but it will look something like this.

13 Sep: LA/Anaheim (4 nights)
17 Sep: Sedona (3 nights)
20 Sep: Grand Canyon (2 nights)
22 Sep: Page (2 nights)
24 Sep: Monument Valley (1 night)
25 Sep: Durango (4 nights)
29 Sep: WDW (8 nights)
7 Oct: Universal (2 nights)
9 Oct: LA (1 night)
10 Oct: Depart for Melbourne.


DH's cousin and his wife (from Dallas) will be able to meet up with us in the Durango area; but only in late September. So, we're going to maximise our time time and hope to get to Universal after Disney.

I think I've worked out what I want to do in the Sedona through to Monument Valley component.
Time to start looking at Disney!

I think since we are staying in DVC villas, we have members & guests, we can go to the Top of the World at BLT. You get a different view of the fireworks, they pipe in the music, it's a nice lounge. If there was a non park day, that's a great way to end the day, with Disney magic!

We are determined to make it to a water park this trip. We've not made time on any of our visits so this is going to be high on our priority list. How do we get access to Top of the World?

I think we're there for 7 full days and I was thinking of getting a 7 day PHWFandM ticket. I had assumed that even after the water park, we would want to have the option to get to a park afterwards. I don't know if I'd rethink the ticket if we then dovetailed a trip to BLT afterwards.....

Bobbi - I was just looking at the calendar (*smacks hand on head*). DH is celebrating a birthday on the 3rd of October (no one take that as a hint for present giving!!). How about we try for the Wishes pontoon on that night? It's a Thursday.....I wonder how late the parks are opened to? The alternative is Wednesday the 2nd, which will be the 3rd in Australia.

I once celebrated my birthday at WDW and we celebrated for 2 days. Looks like we might have to do the same again for DH.

I have to add that the pontoon would depend on when MNSSHP is on. We'd love for DS to experience it.

Fantasmic is not with the pontoon. That would be Wishes, and I would still be interested in doing that. I hadn't talked about it lately since it was just the six of us doing it, but if we got some Aussies interested that would bring the cost down. I've never booked it, but it sounds pretty fun.

We would love to have you join us Bobbi. That would be sometime then either Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, or Saturday for the Brown Derby. We are leaving Monday and I plan to book our flights this weekend. I've just been wrestling with the logistics for our cruise out of Galveston. We would never have booked it if we'd known the problems of getting to that port!

I sense a new PTR coming on!

Sounds like the same dates will be open for our cookout. That would be sometime then either Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. We will probably pass on MNSSHP, the cost of a hard admission ticket doesn't seem that worth it for us, since we aren't all that into trick or treating and I'm not sure the parade is a $70 draw.

The itinerary looks good. I've booked two nights at the VCG, but after Sunny's little incident, it might be hard to get Fran to want to stay out there. I booked the 15th and 16th in a one bedroom. I can always cancel as late as August. I don't know how that works in your plans.

We arrive at WDW on the 29th as well, but we are at VWL for the first three nights. I'd be up for something during that time possibly meeting up for a trip through a park or a meal, but definitely planning a lot of the hanging out once we're all at the BCV.

We can definitely celebrate DH's birthday somewhere in there!

Did I say Fantasmic? I must be tired.

You're right. I'm thinking of Wishes pontoon. Preferable a pontoon with piped music. If you and Fran are interested, that would make it six. I haven't asked any of the Aussies yet because I don't know if Ed might be interested, when he's joining us etc. Is the pontoon HA? Will Fran be able to transfer... I've been googling to find out and I'm not sure.....

I'd like to be able to check out the schedule for MNSSHP. I think we might only have one party night during the week we are there and I'd really like to take DS to it.

Okay. You, Bobbi and I overlap on the 4 nights.

We already have MNSSHP to juggle around; and it seems like we have 3 things we'd like to do together:
  • The cookout
  • Brown Derby
  • Wishes Pontoon


Seems like we're starting to cook with gas here.

My plans for DLR are to stay in the area from 13 - 17th. I know you hang on to your VCG points because you go so often; but just say the word and I'm more than happy to see if we can work something out!!!

Alison - I think I did know that you had booked those days at VGC. I've checked my notes. I've got Disney days written down for the Sunday and the Monday. I'm going to need to sort out tickets soon.....

Fran is doing much better, so she should have no problem getting on the boat. She plans on tendering in Grand Cayman so if she can do that, she can get on a pontoon.

Are you meaning did you want to rent points at the VGC? Actually we have a lot of VGC points because they canceled F&W so we don't have much reason to stay out there. If you do speak quickly. The seven month window has opened up for your trip and the resort is almost booked on points.

I was going to take care of your tickets for you. Just let me know the number of days you will be going so that I can reserve them in our allotment.

I will be off the computer for a while. Darcy and Jim are here and we are going to 1st street to do some work.
