Sweet! Successfully booked an AoA Suite for November 2-11 at the CM Friends & Family Discount of 40% off. Contrary to rumors Disney is still doing Dining Discounts on the Friends and Family plans but they release them periodically. Right now they are available thru end of May. I was told to check back August/September for my my November dates. Better still, by going this route I am able to get a Dining Plan without purchasing park tickets so I can grab tickets from Shades of Green. 191 days and counting!

Five more days until I can make ADRs! Squee!

I'm still deciding about Le Cellier. I really, really love their cheese soup but can't decide whether it's worth 2TS credits - especially when the Food & Wine festival is on, and I could just buy little cups of it from there! But what if they don't have it?!

Oooh, the decisions!

We are not doing the DP this trip so all Signature places are out for us. Since F&W is going on I seriously doubt we will be too hungry any way so I am thinking Via Napoli and maybe the new place "Spiced Road Table" during Illuminations if it is open by November.

15 days until we can make ADRs...and I can't wait!! I seem to have unusual times in mind, so I'm hoping that helps with our group of 12.

I'm sure the Cheddar Cheese Soup will be available at the F&W Festival....it has been the last several years.

Disney in November

Hi All!

I just found and started following this thread. I'm hopeful that I can collect a bunch of great hints and tips to help me plan a great vacation for my kids (5&8) and me. A couple of years ago my (now late) husband and I told my kids that we were starting to plan a Disney vacation. So now I find myself in real need of some Disney Magic and a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth.

We will be at WDW Nov 10th - Nov 16th at AoA Finding Nemo.

I'd love to join the facebook group, but seems I need to post 10 times before I can send a PM.

I've never been to Florida in November, will the pools be warm enough to spend time playing in them?

Just how hard is it going to be to get ADRs? Should I let my kids see the options and pick where they want to go or should I just surprise them so they don't get disappointed if I can't get the ADRs for where they want to go?

This is my family. I found it, all on my own. Is little, and broken, but still good. Ya. Still good.

Just finalized my plans for all of my ADR's!! On my Animal kingdom day I'm wanting to have breakfast at Tusker House hopefully for the earliest time slot. I just noticed that it will be an EMH day, I was hoping to stay clear of all EMH's. Since it is an AM EMH should I still try and get the earliest slot at Tusker House or maybe wait till 9 or 10 for breakfast?

First, I am so sorry for your loss. I have met many great people here on the DIS and I become close to a few. We've all had a variety of experiences and if you need a shoulder to lean on (especially mouse-ear shaped), we can be here for you.
We can help you as much as we can! I am going to send you a PM in just a few seconds.
Yes, the pools are heated, so they will be warm enough. But have the towels handy, because the temperature change from the pool to the air may be a bit drastic.
ADRs are not as hard as everyone makes out. Your 180 day mark is in about a week and a half (I think). I sit down with my family and ask them where they would like to eat. Sometimes, I help steer based on what decor I'd like to look at or what park I think we'll be in. For example, my daughter wants to eat at Coral Reef this trip; so I am making that happen. As for how hard they are to get: only two restaurants I know of completely book (or at least seem to) at 180 days. They are Le Cellier (the steakhouse in Canada) and Be Our Guest (the new restaurant in Fantasyland). Since you are staying at a Disney resort, you will be able to make all your reservations for your entire trip at 180 days from check-in. ***If you need more help with this, feel free to respond to my PM and I can try to help in more detail.

If it were me, I'd probably use that first hour or two of EMHs and then eat breakfast.
