The kids have said they would like to eat at the T rex cafe so we are making sure we do that as a definite but other than that we will just be eating at what ever place takes our fancy at that time I guess.
We are the same way with ADRs. Hard to justify the price when there are so many other ways to meet the characters. I've had a hard time trying to include one in our budget. For now we have decided to skip them.

Star Wars weekends aren't until later in the month. And also wouldn't have much of an effect on MK, just DHS, I think. I think May 4th is simply a better day to be at other parks because of it being a Saturday, show times, EMH hours wherever they are, etc. Josh at EasyWDW usually explains it pretty well.

This is our arrival day and I will be in the MK anyway! But we won't get in until around 4, so we will probably go for just a few hours and get one Land out of the way (likely Tommorrowland) and eat dinner. I just can't fathom introducing my girls to WDW anyway but with a first glimpse of the castle.

KangaT and company will be there 23-30 May. The crew will consist of DH, DMIL, 2 out of 3 DSs and one boy's girlfriend. She's not quite the Disneyholic that the rest of us are, but we're working on her! And dear friend Katie, a Disney intern, will be taking a night off to join us. Already vibrating with excitement! Oldest DS will be celebrating college graduation and DH will have his birthday while we're there! Must - not - explode!!!!


Whoops! Forgot to say we'll be at CBR - a family favorite. Anyone else?

Cautiously joining this thread. We're waiting on final approval for vacation time at work (crazy making!!) but we're shooting for May 5-10. No kids, just the two of us. Neither DH nor I have been so this should be interesting LOL! The trip will be our birthday presents to each other as well as our anniversary gift. Birthdays, 5th and 22nd, anniversary 11th. I'm so tempted to ask for buttons, but worried it may be poor form since only 1 birthday falls in our dates.

We'll be staying at ASMu and winging the food thing. DH is super picky and I just can't seem to find TS places that have food he'll for sure enjoy. I've looked, but never seen an answer about how the restaurants are about substitutions/leaving things off. No sauce, no veggies, mashed or fries, nothing weird...it is hard LOL! I'm assuming it won't be any bigger deal at Disney than any other sit down place.

Sorry...rambling. I'm so stinkin' excited!!

Congrats and I'm a little jealous. Of course I'm too old for the college thing, but that would be awesome to do!

Just changed my reservations, now at Pop from May 7-11, as we are going to spend our first night onsite at Universal. Had the discount applied, standard pool view room for 4 nights, $475, taxes in. The Universal hotel is my big splurge for my 30th birthday - doing it solely for FOTL access.

76 days until my vacation!! We are definitely doing one full day at each of MK and DHS. Wondering whether or not to buy PH and try to fit in all three parks in 3 days...wondering whether or not we even want to do EPCOT or AK, maybe another day at MK?

First world problems. haha

Hello everyone!

Don't think I have posted here yet as I didn't see my name on the list.

But my family (myself, DH, DSD7, DSS5, and DSS5) are visiting our favorite place (Disney of course) May 26th - June 1. We are staying at POR.

I am a Disney veteran, spent many nights in CR with a MK view , thanks to the many basketball tournaments held in FL.

We took a trip with the step-kids in July 2011 but we only went for 2 days, MK and AK (stayed off-site). It was their and DH's first trip. Last year DH and I spent our Honeymoon at Disney and stayed at Bonnet Creek. I think I have converted him!

Anyways, this will be our first on-site, full on Disney vacation. We are so excited!! 95 days to go!!
