Some of our dates overlap too! While we're staying at POR unless something changes our mind with discounts, etc. we are probably sticking with POR (although we did toss up getting 2 connecting rooms in POP), but will probably check out POP and AoA on an off day... so maybe (big maybe) we'll see you both... maybe...

We are thinking of hitting MNSSHP on the 24th, with back-up dates 22nd or 25th. I've noticed last year the week prior to Halloween did not sell out right up to the day before the parties (online), so I am hoping the same is true this year. Anyone else taking a gamble and waiting until almost the last minute to buy MNSSHP tickets vs. buying them right when they are released? I'd rather go by the weather forecast and hold off as long as possible. Since we have some flexiblility in our schedule I would hate to buy tickets and then pretty much get rained out. Also shooting for a Thursday or Tuesday party should help, right? TIA!

Trip and adrs booked!

I need to change my ticker!

We have our room at POFQ and our ADRs booked for our week, October 11-18th!!

So excited to try "new to us" dining locales including Flying Fish, Be Our Guest, Yak and Yeti, 50's Prime Time, Tutto Gusto and Teppan Edo.

Planning a WDW trip of several firsts for us with the new restaurants as well as experiences -Mini golfing at Fantasia, MNSSHP, Food and Wine, and hopefully we will even get on Tom Sawyer's Island this trip...

Very excited to have plans in motion as I look at the SNOW outside STILL in mid-April......

The snow IS melting today, isn't it.... LOL!

Looks like we will just miss you this fall fellow Minnesotan! Did you get your flights yet? If not check out SWA, their flights just came down in price today while Delta and Sun Country flights are just... crazy!

We finally booked our trip on Sunday. We are doing POR for 7 nights. Oct 30-Nov 6. It was originally going to be me, DW, DD(11) but we have added out DS(20) on as well. If a good deal on flights out of Buffalo comes along we may do that, but if not we will be driving down. This will be our first time with 3 drivers and that will probably an overnight drive much easier! Now that it is official and we are going...We can't wait!

Yes, the sun is helping today - first time in over a week it feels like! Hope we don't get more snow as predicted this week....

I will check the flights as we have not been watching yet - thanks for the tip! We may have to go Delta as we are getting one of our 4 tickets from a FF miles donation from DG And we are ending the trip in Bradenton so need to see which airport is best to come and go from!

Enjoy the MEA break in FL - we are excited as we are used to Spring Break crowds on our disney trips...

So awesome how many trips are overlapping! We'll be there Oct. 18-27th! Originally it was later in the month, but it worked out better this way. Maybe we'll have some dismeets!

Very cool! I can't watch that show without thinking about the X-files and/or Twin Peaks, I wonder if that is intentional?

We are hoping to go to MNSSHP on the 24th as well depending on weather & ticket sales. I too am hoping to wait to get tickets. Maybe we will bump into each other

I am trying to decide between Hollywood studios and Epcot during our stay. Here is our itinerary as of now:
10/3 animal kingdom
10/4 magic kingdom
10/5 magic kingdom
10/6 Hollywood studios

Should we go to Epcot instead on our last day? What do you think about changing up animal kingdom? We are pretty set on MK day 2-3 due cinderellas Bfast, and fireworks. My girls will be 4 and 7. What do you think they will like best??

LOVE that show. The theme song is my ringtone. We saw a family dressed as them during Comic Con. Soooo cool.

Since
It's our anniversary weekend, thinking DH and I will go as a Day of the Dead or zombie bride and groom. I need a cheap "wedding dress" because it's going to get trashed with makeup anyway. I'm thinking DotD is less scary.

I just checked last night and the best flights I could find on Southwest or other airlines from Minneapolis to Tampa or to Orlando are $370 round trip - is this cheaper than they were or are you finding better deals?? Seems high, but our last flights were FFmiles paid so not sure what to expect to pay.

Thanks,
