I just realized that you guys are going to be there pretty much the exact same dates as us! Maybe we'll see you around.

Check in, grab a quick bite, hopefully our room will be ready. If it is we will get settled in, of not I will let Xzavier have a swim in the pool until it is.

6:00 pm--->Head to DTD, shop and eat at.....


Yummy.... I will get:

So....final decision is made.....We will be staying 09/17-09/29 at





I lov the look of AOA, but cannot justify more money for the same size room....we get to stay an extra day for the same amount we would pay to be at AOA instead. Plus Boo loves Toy Story, and Sorcerer Mickey.

Now fingers crossed free dining is released and it includes values....this wold save us over $600.00 after we upgrade to DDP!!!

Keep your fingers for us.....(although we are going either way....lol)

Looks like a fairly packed schedule, which sounds like what you like. I love the fact you get an extra day for what it would have cost to stay at AoA. I would have done the same thing. Sounds like a great trip.

Love all the pictures in the report! So excited for you that your mum is maybe coming! I say book for 3 - it's easier to go smaller later if you have to.

Day 4!

Today we will be going to


This will be our first time here....so I need to spend some time looking at


Not sure what strategy should be employed here so this day will be trial and error....my first priority is

This looks so cool! Xzavier is determined he cannot snorkel, so we will be practicing this summer. After this we will try to hit some big slides to get them out of the way


This looks so fun! And we can go together!


This looks fun as well!

After we get the big slides done, hopefully before there are too big of lines, we will spend some time

I Lazy Rivers! They are so relaxing....

Next we will spend some time in

Wave pools are a great time! Cannot wait to see the big waves. Boo is a rough and tumble boy who has been swimming with no help since he 2, he will think they big waves are amazing!

We will eat lunch here at some point, and try the mini donuts, since I have heard nothing but good things about them. After we go back to the resort and get freashened up, we will be heading to




As much as arcades give me headaches Boo LOVES them so we will head over to

to spend a couple hours.


We will try to hit up some of the major games before we leave for supper at

This meal is at Boo's request. It will be out of pocket, since I do not plan on having dessert here and my meal will be

Which is on the appitizer menu but is MORE then enough food for me!

Since we are not having dessert here, where could it be?

for some yummy ice cream...

Does anyone know if you leave DisneyQuest and go back does it count as 1 WPFM entry or 2?

This will be a jam packed day but it should be fun!

What a great PTR. I am also planning a trip solo with my young son (he will only be 4 on the trip). I look forward to hearing more of your plans.
