I loved that you loved the BWI and you are also a normal family. Because we just changed our reservations for May and we are booked Deluxe CL at the BWI for 8 nights. The one thing that I was afraid of is that we are 'very' normal people, we don't do designer anything (probably wouldn't be able to tell you if something was designer... ) and that was what I kept picturing. It just looks so fancy.

So long story short, I'm here.
welcome! I am very glad my son's meltdown were nearly nil this trip verses the last one. And even since the trip they've almost eliminated.. he's growing up :-)

BWI looks fancy but have no fear..you will be fine. We are uber normal and yeah I am not a label person so forget designer...lmao.. you are gonna love it!

Awesome!! I had told DH I was afraid that the kids would break something. Not that my kids are monsters. They are actually pretty well behaved especially in public. But that comes with teaching kids manners and the like. lol Not sure some parents still remember what those are.

Declan and I are going to start planning out our days and meals soon so once the baby is here ( they will be living with us 2/3 of the week) it doesnt get forgotten..lol

Just found my reservation receipt for my 2000 trip to Disney...moderate resort.. standard view $124 a night before taxes. People always say how much more expensive it is now.. I'm paying $174 or 191 a night now.. 13 years later.. IMO not that bad of a price increase. Only thing I liked better back then was your first night rate was locked in for the whole stay..so you paid the same no matter what night..

Following along. We are at pop for 14 nights. We also booked bounce back. We are on the verge of upgrading to a moderate but the extra 1000.00 seems a bit steep. I should just get over it. But that is our spending money as well. Choice choices.

Totally understand..for us it was 1 room or 2..1 being cheaper at POR over 2 and a dining upgrade at POP

I'm in! I haven't been on these boards much since my August 11 TR, but we've got another August trip planned now so I'm back. I was going through my TR looking to catch up with everyone, so glad to see my fellow "meltdown kid" mom is planning another trip.

I've never booked this early either, but at least it's January, only a few weeks away from ADR time. I can't even book my airfare yet which is freaking me out a bit.

Very happy to hear that the meltdowns have subsided. I am hoping for the same result, but the kid is still moody so we'll see.

Taejan has grown up even more since this trip and I have confidence meltdowns are a thing of the past with him.. good luck!

Just finished reading your last TR and enjoyed it very much. We are going in Sept (first time for that month) and staying at BWI CL, so I was glad to hear you enjoyed staying there. We booked room only(to get CL) early but was wondering if/when FD offers will be available for Sept? Any input? Denise

gonna say it was just before the 180 day window last year. No guarantee it will come out though. From what Ive read the bounceback this year is for a % off thus far NOT FD.. I am so glad we booked the BB in September!
