We're going on the 14th. I usually try to spend our first full day in MK. A few years ago we didn't start at MK and it just didn't feel right to me. Ever since then I've had to start there so I figured I'd just do the party that night too. We're doing MK at least twice so we can always do whatever we missed on the other days. Have fun!!!! I've never been so excited for winter!

Here is a link to something that will explain it all: https://www.facebook.com/#!/notes/di...50650931518325

I printed the page out and have it in my binder for quick reference.

Hope this helps!

Out of the two weeks we went last year (the week of and after Thanksgiving) we had only two possible days we would have swam. I remember the week of thanksgiving was freezing!! I believe there was a storm in the area and we were catching the higher winds because of it. Hopefully it will be different this year!

We went for Thanksgiving 2010 and it was 85-88 the whole week. Out of the 5 or 6 times we've been in November I think we've used the pool every time except for one. Hopefully it will be the same this November

We went last year for two weeks in December. We swam everyday the first week, then two days the second week and the days I had hoped to do blizzard beach were too cold. It's unpredictable in the late fall/early winter but odds are good of you're there for a week at least a few days will be warm enough to swim. (And being from Hawaii we're wusses for cold day swimming).
I'm hoping we'll get at least two good weather for pool days this trip since we're at BCV plus would like to try Blizzard Beach since it's included on our AP, but ya can't control the weather ...

So we decided to do a split stay this time so we are doing AKV Kidani village for 11/30 to 12/2 and then switching to BLT for 12/2 to 12/8. We have always wanted to try AKV and thought this would be a good way to give it a shot and see how it is. Can't wait to see what animals are out the window!

Also got all my ADR's after a rough start yesterday. I couldn't get the on line system to work at all so had to wait until 7 am to call. Got everything I wanted, even BOG although not the date I wanted. There was only one day my whole week that had a open spot.

We are doing:
Ohana - first time for dinner
Raglan Road
Teppen Edo
Crystal Palace - before park open
Grand Floridian Cafe
Rose and Crown - first time
Biergarten
Mama Melrosa - first time
Garden Grill - first time
Be Our Guest - first time

We are probably also going to do the Backstage Safari Tour. Any one else done this one?

I know that I posted this before or I think I did but can't find it. We want to go MVMCP but I need to know which week night would be best . Our dates are 11/10 - 11/17 and I'm trying to decide between Monday or Thursday. Any suggestions?
