I was very glad to see that I'm not the only Disney obsessed dad out there. I just won a Disney polo on an eBay auction that I will wear with pride on a golf trip in a couple of weeks. It just sucks it's not going to be at Disney! Need to plan to do that sometime.

Looking forward to getting to know you guys a bit more, this forum is great!
Welcome!

Looks like at least the RO discount will happen for our trip. Won't save us as much as the FD would have, but we'll take at least something. DW and I are considering taking a personal day Thursday to get things booked

The way theme park tickets are going, I think we are shying away from Seaworld now, it'll be between $300-400 for what will amount to half a day or so? Might just take the day to relax, and hit DTD instead. Kids would love another pool day too....

But what if the temps are only in the 70's? Do you have alternate, cold weather plan?

Could you have at least tried to say that with a straight face?

Don't worry, we don't haze the newbies here.

In fact this is the best bunch of guys I've met on the interwebs.

Did you see a rumor or info that the RO discount will be offered to the public? Did you get a PIN? I am thinking we may go with a different hotel if its a room discount. Maybe a MK view at CR. Hopefully we'll know before ticket prices go up. If no FD, most likely will skip the package and cut down on the sit down ressies. May as well make the most of it. Looks like it will be a couple years before the next trip.

We already have DC at SeaWorld booked. I have a friend at Budwieser that helped us out with that one. I figured DC was basically a pool day other than the dolphin swim which is about an hour from what I heard.

Are you sure it was frustrations with classmates and not family?

I'm thinking the 22nd might be a good meet-up in the afternoon / evening. I'm assuming that the dark side won't keep our interest past 4pm or so and then we'll most likely head back to the sunny side of town somewhere.

Ummmm.... I figured with the heated pools he'll be fine. So long as the parka is sitting pool side for when he comes out.

I'll get my itinerary up when we finalize. For now, just know I'm watching.

RO discount and free dining discount should open for the public on Thursday. Looks like the best RO discounts are at Beach Club, BoardWalk, Wilderness Lodge, and AKL/Contemporary Standard View rooms. Shoot me a PM if you'd like some more help on this.
