Congrats on the milestone.

The Poly discount is only 20%. If you're partial to monorail resorts, and considering those three, I think I actually like Wilderness Lodge the best. The Contemporary does have the one benefit of the ability to walk to the MK (and perhaps more importantly the ability to walk back from the MK). But WL has boat service to the MK, and I think it's a much better-themed resort than the Contemporary. I also think it has better restaurants, and it'll be somewhat less expensive as well.

We may actually do part of our trip at AKL with the room discount. We also love the theming there. And it would just be for the last part of the trip, which inclues our day at Animal Kingdom.

I ordered both until our fearless leader decides which color to pilfer. Yellow was introduced since it is the color of gold, but black is for our Jolly Roger when we "Raise the Colors!".

It is James' birthday. That can be his gift - choosing the colors.

You do know that you can go to the pool and enjoy yourself and not go into the water. They have these things called pool bars.

When I was a kid they made me go into lakes in the Adirondack's. I was younger then and thought it was fun. Now I am wiser and know better.

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.
She hasn't seen me in a while so no she is not mad at me.

That could work. Depending on when you leave the other side we could meet up for a meal or in a park. Open if you have any ideas.

The kid wants to do the whole 24 but I don't even want to go to the MK that day. We will make rope Drop though.

Do you know what the discounts are for on each hotel?

CR
WL
AKL

What about the Mods? Are they offering discounts at POR? POFQ?

I'll go in and run some numbers tonight to see what works best. 20% at Poly is not all that enticing. Thanks.

From what I had seen on FB it looked like Team Dolewhip had claimed the gold and Team Beverly the black. I got one of each of those and have not yet declared a side. I guess that would leave red for Team Sparrow. Someone else can jump in and correct me if I got that wrong.

To me it seems pretty obvious.

Dole Whip = yellow
Beverly = red (logo is blue, red and white)
Sparrow = black (like the pirate flag)


The fact that team Beverly claimed black just kind of baffles me.

And the whining, "c'mon dad", didn't work?

You are applying rules of logic to this group? What does that say about you?

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.
Here is the cut and paste from another thread..

This was the complete post on Mousesavers:

New!Disneys Visa Late Summer Savings Offer

Disneys Visa cardholders can*save up to 30% on Walt Disney World Resort hotel stays, most nights 8/15/13 9/28/13.

Discounts off*rack rates:
5% off -*All-Star Movies, Animal Kingdom Lodge (Savannah view), Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas, Bay Lake Tower, Contemporary (Club Level)

15% off -*Art of Animation (family suites)

20% off All-Star Movies, All-Star Sports, Contemporary (except Club Level), Grand Floridian, Pop Century, Polynesian

25% off -*Caribbean Beach, Coronado Springs (standard rooms only), Port Orleans-Riverside

30% off Beach Club, Beach Club Villas, BoardWalk Inn, BoardWalk Villas, Old Key West, Villas at Wilderness Lodge, Saratoga Springs, Wilderness Lodge, Yacht Club

Ft. Wilderness campsites, 3-bedroom villas and Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation Resort are not included in this offer.*As with all Disney promotional discounts, some resorts, room types and date combinations will not be available. Its important to be flexible if you want to book a discounted package.

This is a room only offer, but tickets and dining plans can be added (which will change your booking to a package, subject to*package rules).

This offer is expected to become available to the general public on 5/9/13.

Book by 7/31/13.**A deposit of one nights room and tax using your Disneys Visa card is required at the time of booking.


Alas, we don't have tons of $$ to spare, so it'll look like the POP again...
