Hi everyone. I'm a newbie but so excited about a big family trip we are taking this summer. We are taking the auto train and will arrive at ASMUSIC on July 1. We will be staying for five days. We are going with 22 members of our extended family. I would appreciate any tips for a first time trip . My kids will be 16, 13 and 9 by July.

That is awesome! You will have a great trip. It is looking more like we are not going to be able to swing another trip in July this upcoming year..

If things change will jump back on the board. Looks like Thanksgiving and Spring Break will be it for a while..

Looks like our July trip might. It happen now either! We spent a lot of money renovating our kitchen and downstairs this past summer and with our anniversary trip, it would be smart of us to save our money. We will have to see, but it's probably a no go.

We are also in panic mode over Hurricane Sandy. We are suppose to leave in five days. School has already been closed for us form!onday and Tuesday. My mom was coming from NJ to watch the kids, but if the storm is really bad then she may not be able to get here. Ugh! Was so looking forward to this trip! Not sure what will happen now. Feel like this is all going to be a big mess!

Booked POR-Riverside for July 10-16th. We are a group of 9..my mom is picking up the tab for us. This will be 3 of our groups high school graduation present..and us parents get to come along for the ride.

I am going to book a room at Hard Rock pre-Disney and treat my mom to HP.. ( and also because my 21 DD swears she will leave Disney one day to see it )

I am so excited I have already became plannerdenise! ..and my poor hubby has asked me ever so nicely to stay off these boards and spend time with him.

Anjalee: My thoughts and prayers are with you. I hope Sandy will not be as bad as predicted, and that it will not interfere with your travel plans.

Nancy, thanks for the well wishes. I am really worried about my dad in NJ right near Atlantic City. He is riding out the storm. As of this morning, he still had power so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

At this point, the trip is just a secondary worry. I guess we will go if we can and if not, we will reschedule.

Hi I'm jumping on this board. I was on the April board but the flights were ridiculous!!! We are sad b/c we like going that time of year but we can stay longer in the summer so that a bonus. No restrictions to get back for school.
We haven't booked anything yet- waiting for SW flights to come out. We know we're staying at the Hard Rock CL b/c DS15 and DH didn't want this to be a just Disney vacation. I was extremely sad about that but just happy to be going again. We'll be doing a day at Disney to make me and DS11 happy. I had even made a BOG ressie for April before we decided to cancel. So I know that will be our 1 park ressie when we go in July.

Thanks. We are supposed to leave first thing Friday morning. I know the storm will be gone by then, but we don't know what the power situation will be like for the next week if we lose power. Plus, my mom in NJ is who was going to watch the kids while we go out of town. May not be able to happen now. We will see. Keeping my fingers and toes crosses. Here is hoping you stay safe as well.
