we try to get there early too! hope you can stay on EST time...it can be done, I did it the opposite way when we went on DCL in 2005...we had dinner at 8 and was in bed by 1030pm with DD (5 then) so was 730 for her, then we were able to do am stuff with little to no issues.

Hello!
I just got the green light from the hubby, thinking April 15-18. Haven't booked anything yet, trying to get a feel for what's going on.

Any idea on SoCAL's actual spring break dates? Are they early spring breakers, too?

all school have different spring breaks - you should be pretty good with your dates since its later in April and away from Easter week

Hopefully this helps, looks like you are going at a relatively low time for SB:

We are going down same time as you April 16-19 though & it's our first trip to DL, been to WDW several times! I'm hoping this timeframe will be good as well, we originally had it scheduled for the week before, but decided to push it back incase any schools were still on break!
Guess well see you there!!

Me! Me too! I want to jump in here, I am so excited.

I can't wait for our trip time to roll around.

We are arriving April 18th after 7 hours in the air in addition to one layover for 2 hours in Atlanta and will be hopping between the parks for 5 days through April 23rd

Our trip looks like this:

4-18- arrive, go to Huntington Beach, shopping for water and snacks, then Dinner somewhere in Downtown Disney

4-19 - early admission for DLH guests at DCA- RSR here we come- wide right make way for the Jacobs Family!!!!!! Junior is finally tall enough to ride!!!!

Lunch or dinner at Flos V-8, stay as long as my East coast DS7 can manage to walk and be awake and not look like the walking dead

4-20- early entry DLH guests at Disneyland - lunch on the run as will be dinner, again stay as late as we can manage

4-21- sleep in a bit if junior isn't up at 4am pst since this is his regular waking up time at home EST when it's 7am, then parks- swim maybe if warm enough and I can get him away from the park rides for a few hours- this is also laundry day so if DS is up at 4am then I will wash our clothes then- it's all good!

4-22- early entry again, parks all day

4-23- last day to play so again early entry- we hope to play all day but might squeeze a little nap in there if needed then we will close the parks down for the night

4-25- 1pm flight home

I haven't planned a lot of table service meals as we are more of go with the flo kind of family, and I am hoping that the DL guide for WDW vets is correct and we may be able to get seating if the mood strikes at a nice rest.

lol, thanks. I actually commented there, too! After I saw this thread last night.
They predicted relatively low crowds for the days we'll be in the parks.

Getting excited!

Tropicana, you may be hard pressed to find a close place for a spring break trip, I know it was tough for us.

Carousel is a good hotel, we stayed there 4 years ago.

Hey all, sorry I've been MIA, i was away at training all week. We can start making dining requests in 4 days! Still frustrating that the darn calendar isn't up that far, but what can you do.

Can't wait, just 9 more weeks!
