I have dreams like you, no really! Just much less touchy-feely. They mainly happen somewhere warm and sunny....

When is your birthday? March Madness falls around mine every year and I love it when my bday is on a weekend so I have extra celebration. Mine is March 18. Are you a fellow Piscean???

Awesome!! We definitely want to stay there one day with DVC points.

Glad I read this thread again, forgot I was going to have the girls ask for Disney gift cards for their bdays. DOH! Guess I will save one of their gifts for Easter and get them the cards myself.

254 for us! I'm ready to get this show on the road! I put the ride music from Soarin' on continuous play while I ran this morning, and smiled the whole time. I just can't wait to get back!

@lindap we are the same, our zoo in St. Louis is amazing, so we don't spend a lot of time at AK. And, my little guy and husband hated the lion king show. I do think the safari is neat, but that's about it for us...just my opinion.

Subbing - because for some reason I forgot to

And I sent a pm to be added to the FB group.

How many are running the 1/2 on the 10th? I was supposed to run 2 halfs this summer with a friend of mine but I broke my foot so I've been laid up the last 5 weeks. I know I won't be able to run the June one we had planned, maybe August but I thought November might work well so I would have all summer to train. Are there any discounts if you run the race?

I think I have most of our ADR's figured out, roughly anyway. My kids are weird - they don't want to do any character meals! So no Chef Mickey or Tusker House for us. I told them they are eating at CRT and they're going to be happy about it! Other than that, I'm thinking T-Rex, Via Napoli, 50s Prime Time Cafe and 'Ohana for our table service meals.

Just waiting for the MVMCP dates to be official so we can figure times and stuff out!

Yeah, my hubby didn't like it either, but my daughter (who was 4 at the time we went) absolutely loved it!

A) Because its new, and well built so there is high demand which means they can command high prices.
B) Because the rooms are larger, so the idea is you can put more people in a 1 bedroom suite, which is cheaper than getting 2 rooms at a moderate.

Disney is responding to demand from larger families who want to stay in rooms together ... personally I think if you're a larger family or group you should just go DVC, renting if a purchase of a contract isn't for you (and for many, it isn't). Or if renting DVC is too expensive, then there are some great off-site condos, too.

But I hear ya. Despite the fact that I adore Bay Lake Tower and the Epcot resorts, I would love to stay in AOA a night or two on either end of our trip (and we Nemo, too), but its just too darn expensive.

I know it is expensive, but ...

We stayed at AoA for four nights in JAn in the Lion King section and just loved it! We got a rate of $200/night. We normally use our DVC points but ran out since we did a Dream cruise with them, too. And I really wanted to try this. It is the "mini-DVC" of Disney. Absolutely loved the theming...the extra room was great...the 2nd bathroom was a big help...we ate breakfast at the table, which is also a Murphy bed, then my girls each had their own bed at night. Pool is awesome...playgrounds fun. Best was that DH and I had a door between our rooms so we didn't have to go to bed early when kids did.

I highly recommend it, even if you can only do for a split stay. We found ourselves coming back from the parks early to enjoy the resort.

Hi! I'm new to this thread. We're planning a trip for Nov 2 - 9th. Didn't realize that was the marathon weekend, but I guess the crowds for that won't bother us too much...I'm hoping everyone arrives for that on the 8th, or something. Wishful thinking! We are renting a vacation home in Indian Creek. We want some space this time!
