Had an amazing vacation and wish I was back :-( Yes, we were in Downtown Disney during the tornado watch/warning timeframe. Freaked me out a little. My friend from the Orlando area was with us and her children for the day and she acted like "no big deal". Of course, she would probably freak at the thought of a blizzard warning, whereas I will drive in almost every snowstorm. ;-)

We just got back last night, To everybody still going: we got to do everything we wanted without outrageous wait times! We got to parks right after 9 am. I was just happy the crowd levels were alright. Enjoy!

Have any of you guys gone during February for President's Day week? I have a feeling it's slammed that week. Just thought I would get your opinions.

I went in Feb of '08 and the temps were warming in Mass then there at points of the week trip. We ended up getting stuck in Florida because there was a snow storm in Boston so we couldn't fly out. There are worse places to be stuck but we had 4 kids with us and NO money left and just wanted to get home so I personally won't go during Feb again.
Just getting ready to leave to go back today so not sure yet if end of April is much better because forecast for the week is RAIN. Will have to get back on this time.
Good luck on your planning

I believe when we were there in Feb we were there for President's day and I wouldn't say it was slammed but there were waiting for rides and a lot of people there but that was also in 08' so things might be different now.
I personally won't go back in Feb because it is cooler there and having to worry about snow and delayed flights living in MASS. But that's just my feelings on it.
Happy planning

That's my problem. The heat. I don't know if cooler weather will help DH, but the shorter hours will at least help me not plan too much.

We'll probably go in December 2014 for DH's birthday, or January 2015 for our 6th anniversary.

I was hoping to do our 5th anniversary this year, but it's looking more and more like I'm pregnant....hopefully we'll know for sure next week.

We went in Feb 2011 for Presidents' Day week and did not find it to be "slammed" at all.

We would go in Feb again for sure.

Yeah...but at least the fairies were the whole week. DHS will probably be slammed that day...


So....I'm not pregnant. The only positive spin is that I didn't feel well enough to go with DH to his parent's this weekend (it doesn't take a lot...). So I'm husband and child free for 2 days. I'm actually thinking about painting DS's room, because it needs to be done (we've had the paint for like 5 months) and will be so much easier without the two year old around...to "help."

I'm so excited I'm leaving for Disney at 4 AM although my flight doesn't leave until 7. I almost can't believe it's actually happening. It feels like a dream to me, hehe a dream come true.
