Missing my day trips to Disneyland :(

Just booked my yearly trip to WDW on Tuesday! I am going to be there from May 9 - May 16th. May extend it a day tho. I am doing my first stay at POR because I've heard wonderful things about it and I REALLY want a hotel with a hot tub!

I've done the Grand Floridian, AKL, and ASMu. It will be nice to see how a moderate works for me. I didn't mind ASMu, since I really only need a bed when I am WDW, but this time I want to relax a little more and I have a special friend coming to stay with me a couple of nights.

I've only made two ADR's right now... I am following a tradition, my first dinner is at Via Napoli in Epcot. It has THE BEST food since my Italian mother was alive.

My company is sending me to a user conference at the Orlando Marriott right before this, so I driving down (from Atlanta) and extending my stay to include my vacation. Best thing is the company will be paying for my travel! I am probably going to hit Busch Gardens for one day before I go to Disney.

I'm so excited that I told my co-workers I will probably be insufferable for the next 112 days.

Not to bring the FastPass+ conversation/debate to this thread (I really have had my fill of the endless speculation on other threads, well, for now anyway), but has anyone heard if this will impact our May vacations? Will we just have to wait and see what happens at the 60 day window?? Just wanted to see if anyone had any inside info or thoughts on the subject.

Add us in! We are booked BC CL May 25- June 8. The count down is on...only 125 days to go! If y'all are anything like me the wait seems almost unbearable! Thank goodness for the DIS- somewhere we can all talk about our trips without driving our non Disney loving friends nuts!!!

Trying to decide which water park would be best for a 3 year old and two adults, any suggestions? The then 3 year old is pretty adventurous, she did Barnstormer in Dec and loved it! She is currently 35 1/4 inches tall. We adults would like to make sure we can stay together majority of the time.

Doing the HAPPY DANCE!!!

Was originally returning to WDW in November for Thanksgiving break but my husband promised my goddaughter that we would be visiting their family in AZ so I was thinking that our trip had gotten scrapped. When talking about it with the hubby, he said it was definitely still on but had to find another date that would work for both of us...so we decided on a short trip to get our Disney fix for 2013. We will be staying at Coronado Springs from May 25th (hubby's birthday) until May 28th. A short trip, but hopefully enough to get us through the year

So happy to be going at all!!!

Time to change the Ticker!!!

We always do our first dinner at VN, too!
