Making a change! We've decided to stay at the Boardwalk instead of Beach Club!

Anything I should be particularly aware of in May?
What are the crowds like then?
When does the MK expansion open? Do you think it will have an affect on the crowds?
Posted this almost a year ago, figured it was time to come back and update....

We got the official approval for vacation time at work today, Whooooooo HOOOOOOOO! I have done all the research and prep, so just have to call in with our deposit info today.

As of right now we are staying at AoA Lion King suite May 9-13, POR May 13-17, heading to the beach for 2 days after that. Birthday celebration kicks off May 11 with breakfast at the Castle. (<----- that's me, not her, she doesn't know we are going yet)

Hi! I'm new here!

I am SO excited to be posting on this thread!

DH and I are all booked for May 11-21 at POR! We thought we'd have to go value this time because of money, but with the spring discount we are able to stay in the resort we loved so much on our honeymoon! We are so incredibly excited!

Our story... we live in Southern California and have been Disneyland annual passholders for a few years now. All of our best memories - our first date, first kiss, first Valentine's Day, times with our closest friends - have been at Disneyland. We didn't get engaged at Disneyland, but hey, we went there right afterwards! So it only seemed right that we'd honeymoon in Disney World!

We got married June 12, 2010 and spent our honeymoon (June 13-20) at the World, staying at POR. We never dreamed that we would be coming back so soon!! I'd always thought we wouldn't be able to make it back for many years, definitely not until we had kids, but here we are - another trip for just the two of us before kids come along. We will be celebrating our 3rd anniversary (a bit early, haha).

Anyway, we are SOOOO excited!! We haven't told too many people we're going, so it's nice to be able to share our excitement on here!!

We've made our ADRs - even though this trip was sort of last minute compared to a lot of you (just booked a week ago!) we were able to get everything we wanted except BOG, but we expected that. We'll just go there for a QS lunch. We'll be eating at:
Liberty Tree Tavern
Teppan Edo
Whispering Canyon Cafe (a favorite from last time)
Le Cellier (another favorite! Disappointed that it's 2 meal credits this time, though!)
50's Prime Time (probably my absolute favorite)
Via Napoli (wasn't open last time, but we love pizza!)
'Ohana (mmmm I have been craving those dumplings and noodles for almost 3 years..)
Sci Fi (SO excited to try this!!)
Nine Dragons (Has mixed reviews, but we love Chinese and World Showcase is our favorite place at the World!)

Anyway, this post is super long but I am just really excited (if that wasn't obvious!)

117 days!!

Hi!

How exciting! DW and I stayed at POR for her 40th birthday and loved it! Such a nice resort! It was on that trip we bought DVC so we now stay at DVC resorts but we love the atmosphere at POR.

Congrats re 3 years! Some lovely dining ressies! We didnt get BOG either but like you will do lunch. We saw it in the fantasyland review before it opened in November. Wow! It is beautiful! Welcome! :-)

May 18-25 - Wyndham Bonnett Creek

Count us in! Family of 10 - DAd, Mom and mom's husband, me, 3 sisters, one brother in law and a niece and nephew. We arrive at Wyndham Bonnett Creek May 18 - 25, 2013 - two 2 bdrm condos.

Anybody else toy with the idea of staying onsite due to the Spring promotion? I ran the numbers again and again. Staying at a value we just about break even. Our deciding factor was comfort.

It's my 1st time offsite and I'm a little nervous. If I don't like it at least I can say I tried it.

ADRs :)

Hi all!! I think I've got our plan all set, but would love any feedback/ideas... We're staying at BWV and here's what I have so far:

5/4: Arrival; EP; Dinner, Garden Grill
5/5: HS; Breakfast, Hollywood & Vine
5/6: AK; Dinner, Sanaa (This is new to us, any advice on getting a window seat? Do I request it earlier or when we show up to our ressie? )
5/7: MK; Lunch Crystal Palace (New to us)
5/8: EP; More family arrives; Dinner R&C (New to us)
5/9: AK; Lunch Tusker House
5/10: MK; Dinner BOG (new new new!!)
5/11: HS; Dinner Coral Reef (New to us, Same questions as Sanaa )
5/12: Hop; Breakfast Cape May Cafe (This is new, too... any thoughts? I'm on the fence with this one... lots of mixed reviews out there. Thought we would get breakfast and then hop to different parks. )
5/13: Hop; Breakfast Chef Mickey; Dinner Tony's
5/14: Departure - No ressies; probably shop away my depression at DTD

Thoughts? Ideas? We're not really rope drop people, but may attempt getting to some EMH. My core family is myself, DH, and DS(5). We stay for the duration of the trip, and my extended family (4 adults) will be joining us on 5/8. So some ressies are 3 and some are 7 (they depart on 5/13).

Even though this is not our first trip to the world, this is our first trip in May, as DVC, and at the BWV. The world is my home away from home, but I'm very excited to continue to try lots of new things!! (And I'm loving this thread!!!! Everyone is so positive and helpful!!)

I see there are a few of us going around the same time, and we must have all been using easy WDW to plan ou park days. I think I've mentioned my plans before, but I will also be arriving at the world May 4th, like the previous two posters!

Arrive May 4th, no dinner reservations. We'll go over to MK, because I can't NOT do MK on arrival day. But we'll take it easy, and maybe just go through Tomorrowland and eat at Cosmic Ray's. We may ride the monorail loop and check out the Poly, etc., b/c we've never been in any of those.

May 5th, HS day. We have ressies at 50's Prime Time for dinner

May 6th, water park day. We'll do Typhoon Lagoon, because we like it better and it will take us longer. Then we'll head over to the Boardwalk and walk around. We have dinner ressies for Cape May at the Beach Club.

May 7th, MK day. Ressies at BBB for my girls and dinner ressies at CRT, woo hoo!

May 8th, Epcot day. Dinner ressies at San Angel Inn for my MIL who LOVES Mexican food.

May 9th, AK day. B'fast ressies at Tusker House. No dinner ressies this night. We might pop over to DTD and eat a CS, or if we're too tired we'll just head back to AoA and eat dinner at LoF.

May 10th, we'll use the AM to do the few things we like at Blizzard Beach, because we have the water park add on. Then we'll head over to MK for our last night, and we have dinner ressies at Crystal Palace.

May 11th, go home If we didn't make it to DTD Thursday night, we might head over for a couple hours before we drive home so the girls can see it.

Our trip feels so close, yet so, so far away!

However, when we were thinking of going last year, AoA was not open, and we both though Pop was really cool. We can still visit there even if we decide not to stay.
We are there at the same time May 5-11 staying at A0A!!

I hope using easy WDW doesn't change the predictions! It's all about chance, I guess... and tour groups!
