You're welcome! Best of luck to you! Yeah, the Ranchos are quite a ways back there. Needless to say, I'd go back to CBR just for the beautiful resort! The quick service restaurant/buffet is a bit strange, but very good food!

Yup! This is exactly what I was going to say.

to the group! I have added you to the first post. I just Googled Star Island because I've never heard of it before and WOW! I'm really glad you posted it. It looks amazing and the prices are even better!!! I think that place may very well be the winner for us! Our trip in October will just be me and DH. I've been looking for a good off-site hotel/resort that is cheaper than staying in a value on property.

Booked a Bounceback

Before leaving POP last month I booked a bounceback offer!

Heading back to the World, October 20 to 26. Going solo but meeting up with friends.

First time travelling without hubby or kids.

I can't wait!

Count us in for October 5-12! We are staying at the Wilderness Lodge and hoping for some kind of discount to bring the price down! We are celebrating my mom's 60th birthday, my birthday, DD's 9th, and DD's 6th! Yes, 3 of us have October birthdays and 1 mid November. I could also celebrate my 11th wedding anniversary, but DH is not going, so we can have a girls trip.

We are going October 2-11. Me, DH, DS5 and DD6. It will be our little ones first trip. We've been a few times with our older son (19). First time onsite, we are staying in a LM room at AoA.

Excited and overwhelmed. So many things to think about beforehand, like ADRs (planning on just 3 or 4). And FastPass+ has me totally confused but I have plenty of time to figure it out with the help of DISboards.

October at DW!!!

Planning a trip for October 5th - 10th and staying at Art of Animation. Hoping for a deal though to upgrade to a Deluxe resort. We have 5 in the family, still young enough to share a single room, but it limits our options.

Very excited to start the details of planning!

Edit.... just changed the room to the Poly. Still hoping for a "deal" though, of course.

Please add us in! My DS6 and I will be heading back for our 2nd trip, October 19-26. We're staying at CBR, which I'm so excited to try out. We plan on going to MNSSHP, and want to book ADRs for 'Ohana breakfast & Tusker House breakfast so far. I'm going crazy waiting for Southwest to open their flight schedules, so I can get another part of the trip set and paid for.

This made me giggle b/c I live in VA and by no way would I think of "hopping down to Fla" it's not all that close. LOL But I guess if you are traveling from the other coast (not sure where you live) then yes it would be closer. Hope you enjoy your time in VA. What general are will you be in?
