It was worth the wait.

FD was the key to going this year. If it didn't come out we would have canceled and planned for another time.

I've been to WDW a few times before but I'm really excited about this trip. It's just the 5 of us... no extended family, no I'm with a group thing. I checked the availability of dining locations to set the dates and we're only staying 3 nights. Got into Akershus, CRT, and T-Rex


Did I say I was excited about this trip?!?!?

now I'm off to work to pay for this vacation

Dh says he doesn't want to hear about the trip until we go. He refuses to "join the crazy."
So you all will have to deal with me instead.

We are doing the same thing. We are at Pop with free dining four nights and then moving to Poly for the last two nights with the room only because we want to see what it's like. The CM was super helpful with us making the res and told us to arrange with the concierge at Pop for our luggage to be moved.

Hope you have a great time!

My POFQ was not available with a King bed for my dates (21-28) so I had to book Coronado Springs.

My husband is the same way. He likes for me to "save" all the details until about a week before we leave :-)

You can check in as early as 6am. Of course you cant check out of the other one until then,too. They can just hold your bags until your room is ready.

Same here - he has put a ban on me talking to him about my plans - specifically dining ones haha!! Told him he better not complain even one time about the plans I was making if he was going to ban talking abut it - and he was fine with that

So does mine. Then he wants to change this ADR time or "why are we going to X park today?"

Yeah, about that...

Only really works if you're going to the parks in the morning and then back to the room. You'd basically have from 3pm on, so is it worth it for that amount of time?

At least mine doesn't try to change things.
He will be happy to go, and he likes free dining, and he enjoys the parks and seeing the kids enjoy stuff.
He just, for some reason...and I know this is hard to believe...doesn't like to do things like talk about dining menus 6 months out or look at pics of a resort 4 moths ahead of time.
