Thanks! I had seen the other ones so I guess they will all be similar. Just trying to occupy all of my free time obsessing over our July trip!

Having a newly remodeled room will be sweet though

That's a great idea - I'll be sure to do that :-) I'm figuring something is running since guests have to have some way of getting to MK for early AM ressies.

We’ve been doing the same thing since our last visit in December! Even thought this will be our 4th trip in a year, we are still excited and I do obsess. The DIS and EasyWDW.com make it all the more “easy” to do so.

I made the a slight change to our ADRs last week and now have nothing left to do…

I totally understand! This is our third trip in a year... And I get so much of a high from planning! My DH says that I am always at my best when planning a Disney vacation! This will be our first CL stay so I am obsessing over that part now!

So, by the end of October, roughly how many of the longhouses should be completely redone?

If they stay on schedule, I believe the last of the longhouses should be completed at the end of October

When I was there last June, and staying at the Polynesian, the Poly was the first stop.



I can't tell you the order the bus went after the Poly though.

I have about the same amount of time to obsess! We are hoping that the IPO comes through with a BOG reservation for our last night... if that miracle happens then we will be switching a few things around... I tweek our plans each night... adding a bit to our "planner" that I created... today I added information about the cabana rental...
Needless to say, I'm going to be a real mess when this trip is over and I am no longer planning it!

I'm beyond excited! My in laws have been taking all of their kids (they have 8) and their spouses and children on a wdw vacation. Since we're Dvc and ap members, we're one of the last. We just went to AAA on Monday to book (I know, we could have saved about $300 if we booked with my ap discount. Mil didn't want to) and she booked the poly!! It's my dream hotel and I'd pretty much given up hope of staying there. We leave May 15th. Can't come soon enough!

Any special hints, things to look for, etc? Thanks!
