For all you July regulars~ how is it?? We've never been in July before. We will be there for the 4th.
We have however been in April several times. I hear that spring break around Easter is much worse. What do you think?

In my honest opinon I think it is the time in July that you go regarding crowd levels.. We went towards the end of July and only ran into one night of a large student tour group that chanted throughout the park, I don't know how they did not lose their voices.... Anyway after that night we did not run into anymore of them.

The weather was HOT, I mean really HOT!!! I allowed myself to get dehydrated one day and that was not pleasant. I learned one must drink lots and lots of water in that extreme heat.

We followed the touring plans guide for crowd levels at each park and that helped. Also going early was a big advantage.

Have fun!

Thanks I'm not to worried about it b/c we are early people. And we've gone a few times in August so we know how hot it is. I'm sure we'll be fine.

We just got home late last night from our 10th anniversary trip. It was so much fun and dare I say, relaxing. With the kids, it's a whole different experience..a great experience, but a different experience. We had a wonderful time. We ate at Narcoossee's for the first time and it was wonderful. We got to do everything we wanted to do in just four days.


Now, we are still debating whether we can a really pull off a July trip this year. I really thought we would be able to do it, but it looks like it's really up in the air. We will have to decide soon.

I will try to update the list soon for our new additions now that my focus is off of our November trip.

Hello - First couple of years DD and I went during Spring break, not to fond of Disney during March .. Then the past 10 years we vacationed during my Birthday in July. That's alot of fun, celebrating my birthday for 7 to 8 days.

We both really love WDW in July. We are from Texas so the heat does not bother us... Yes, it can be a bit crowded at times. You may think we are weird but we love the crowds and the tour groups don't bother us. DD and I really enjoy watching people / families having a great time at Disney.

Can't believe you have all your days planned our already. Sounds like fun. We are almost 100% sure that we are cancelling our cruise...but not sure about our Disneybstay yet. We will have to wait for after the holidays to figure out if we can go for sure.

Love hearing about your plans though.

Thanks! We will ask for her. Our plans are upon landing and checking into our resort heading directly for DHS and then have a dinner ressie at Sci-Fi diner, as it would not be a Disney Vaco to us unless we go to Sci-Fi at least once for dinner or lunch. Since this was a last minute trip we were only able to get a dinner ressie, which is fine! We also plan spending a day at Universal Studio's this vacation. Sure wish we were going to be able swing the trip in July, but looking pretty dismal at this current point in time. However things change! I am glad you all are allowing me to follow along on your trips!

I am sooooo jealous, hope you can post some pictures for all of us having Disney withdraws..... To bad, you can't call into Sci-fi and request Sarah in advance??? Never tried before.

As far as thanking the group, i think I can speak for all of us. It's a pleasure to share with you our plans and excitements. I'm glad you are on this thread...


WOW - DD got her braces today..... You talk about Grumpy!!!!! I have to walk on egg shells.. BUT - LOVE my DD...
