Our first trip was last year, and my son had just turned 5 a month before. We had a wonderful time and he still talks about it. Yes, there were a few rides he couldn't go on, but it was amazing to see his reaction to the characters. At the younger ages, they truly believe in all the magic! When we met Woody & Jessie, that was really them. The first characters we met were Pooh & Tigger, and it was so funny. The characters are so good at interaction with little ones. Hope you have a fantastic vacation!

I just started working on daily touring plans last weekend. I'm hoping to have a rough idea for each day before April 22, which is our 180 day mark. Right now we're planning 'Ohana breakfast, Coral Reef, Tusker House breakfast and Sci-Fi Drive-in. I really want to try BOG too, but think we'll stick with QS lunch. I also need to figure out what night to buy MNSSHP tix for.

My magical date is April 9 so I am getting close. I have a general idea set up and will talk to my parents, also in the party, this week to get their openions on meals. I know some of the ones I was thinking of are Tusker House (last breakfast seating to go into lunch), Cape May, Garden Grill, MM for Fantasmic. But.... need to get the rest of the family's ideas also. I need one for MK and want to BOG but will prob just do lunch.

Just coming back to update my dates for this thread. I previously advised I'm be there 2 - 8 October.

I'm now straddling across September and October. ADR opens up in about 4 days.

Checking in on 9/29 and checking out 10/7. I'll be at the Beach Club Villas. Looking forward to it.

Hello All...Nine of us will be traveling Oct 26-Nov 3 and have ressies at POR in the Royal Rooms. Am hoping that Disney continues the Military discounts on rooms again. Our reservations specialist sees no problem since Disney has done it for several years. That will give us a great discount on the rooms.
What does everyone use for planning their trips. I am new to this and want grandkids to have a GREAT trip.

Planning ADRs

So, I have one slot left to fill for dinning reservations and I am trying to choose between Jiko, California Grill, and Flying Fish. We are a family of five (DD -7,7,9) staying at Poly, early October. Any suggestions/thoughts???

We're military as well and I'm so nervous! I'm sure that they'll continue the discount, but we can't reserve rooms until they announce it, which makes me nervous!

Hi fellow October Dis! I just found this thread - can't believe it has taken me so long as I have been planning/saving for our first family trip for like 2-3 years now, been on the DIS for about 2 years?!?!

We're going October 18-27, staying at POR - GV (currently, might change if a good discount comes out). I've been on the Oct discount thread a lot, and lurk on Disboutiquers too.

I used to worK at WDW as a CP in 1995, but other than a quick side trip to Marketplace (DTD or DS) in 2000, I haven't been back since. I am SO excited to be going with my family - DH has been to MK only once when he was little and this will be the 1st trip for DD and DS. We'll be celebrating our 10th anniversary, and a belated 5th and 41st birthday for DD and DH.

Just finished laying out our ADRs (4/21 is our 180 mark) after looking at the park schedule and switching a few parks around. Some of these will likely be cancelled if we don't get FD or a discounted DDP:

ADRs:
Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus (bfast - Epcot WS touring day)
Via Napoli (dinner- Epcot WS touring day)
Boma (dinner - non-touring day)
Biergarten (dinner - Epcot FW touring day)
'Ohana (bfast - late morning following MNSSHP)
Mama Melrose's Fantasmic! Dining (early dinner - Fantasmic! and dinner only HS, day following MNSSHP)
Crystal Palace (early bfast, pre-park opening - MK day)
BoG (dinner - MK day)

Other:
Big River Grille & Brewing Works (arrival day, TBD)
Cafe Tu Tu Tango (Orlando, HS day, early park close)
TRex (AK day, early park close)
Sassagoula Floatworks - POFQ (bfast, departure day)

I think the discounts they give are great. I hope they continue them as well. My SIL & BIL took advantage on the tickets when they came down with us in December. Do you know when they announced it last year?
