Oh hi guys!

Hi everyone!

So, I'm already technically "put down" for this thread, but I wanted to formally introduce myself. I'm MainStreetFireman and iloveeeyore's daughter, referred to as Belle in the trip and dining reports. I will be the 18 year old on the trip. Can't wait to meet you all!

jennyf2,

you're officially added! Welcome! So now we need some tips from you about deluxe dining! I will be posting my ADRs for August on my dining review (linked in my signature below). Would love some input from a deluxe dining veteran!

Just modified our resort stay, we are still staying at the Poly but instead of checking in on 8/28, we are now checking in on 8/27 and will be checking out on 8/31. I don't want to wish Summer away but I am so excited, I cannot wait .

152 for us! I'm not sure if we are going to do 4 nights at the BC first or not though. It depends on what I can get with my TA rate.

I think it's 150! for me!!!

I am having a really hard time counting because my ticker is in months and weeks instead of days.

Dani, let me know if I need to change your arrival date in post #2. I got the feeling from the Poly FAQ thread that you might be staying at the Poly longer than you planned! That would be FANTASTIC!

Have you stayed near Epcot before? We did a little tour of the Boardwalk Inn a few trips ago and it is really lovely! I think it would be cool to stay there or the YC for a few days. I'm a new big fan of the split stay!

We plan to visit one year for F&W when both kids are 21 (hopefully DS's 21st Bday trip) and hope to stay at an Epcot resort at that time. After this trip, we will have 1 or 2 kids in college every year until then, so, we're probably looking at values and mods, IF we can go at all, for the foreseeable future! Going to drink up every moment at the Poly this year!

I've never stayed at an Epcot resort before. I'd like to but I'm turned off by the lack of CS choices. I'm so torn. Of course we have a few ADRs schedule so it's not too big of a deal. Idk I have a couple of weeks to decide.

I don't know if any of you rent a car when you are at Disney. We always do, just like the convenience and use it to go to DHS, AK, downtown Disney, etc.

Anyway, over on the transportation board I read about a great discount you can get if you sign up for KLM's frequent flyer program. It's free and the car I wanted from National went from $487 to $238 with the discount.

Just thought I'd share with my Poly buddies in case it can help any of you. Let me know if you want to use it and I'll give you more details.

BTW, many people have called National and KLM and have actually used it at MCO already so it's all legit.

Have a great day!
