My first trip was alone with my daddy at age 15 (1979).

He took each of us 4 kids on an alone trip when we were to turn 16(he impatient we all went at 15). Of course I picked the Magic Kingdom

Not surprising that I now do mom n me trips with my kids

My dd18 has been 36 times. Yes we have a problem.BUT we live in cold NY and visit family and then only a few days at disney most times .

I just made my 180 day ADRs for our Feb/March Bday & Anniv trip. I tried to keep them FWC centric since we are still hangin' tough in the woods!!!!!! So far I've got:
CRT breakfast, whaaaaaat!? DH wants to go. I think he just wants to see the inside of the Castle, or else he's a closet Princess perv.;
BOG (for DH to try, his first time, although he isn't crazy about going);
CG again for if he decides not to do BOG. We'll decide soon;
ChefM dinner (a good buffet? I still can't believe how good it was in August);
and Mickey's Backyard BBQ (should be nice in the cool, dry weather... and convenient to FWC).

I'm supposed to be putting away my truckload of groceries but I took a break to hide in the potty and check on my favorite friends. Don't tell on me! I left the kids watching Doc McStuffins and snuck away for a minute.

My first trip was in 89 for my 5th birthday! There was 5 of us crammed in a tiny Days Inn room. Maybe that's why I have a propensity to stay deluxe. I'll blame it all on my parents. My next trip was when I was 12 and for one part of it we were AGAIN crammed in a tiny Days Inn, this time 6 of us and I was relegated to sleeping on the floor!

Janet I am jealous your DH wants to do CRT, Bob has given the thumbs down to character meals

Bob actually requested going back to BOG and wants to eat in the Ballroom, we were in the library ? Last time ? It was dark is all I know lol

Okay I will play!

I was 35 on my first trip in Oct 2010 and we stayed offsite in a rented house which was way too much work for me Next trip was Sept 2011 and we stayed at the Poly, Sept 2012 Poly, May 2013 BC and our first taste of CL.

DH was 12 on his first trip, he actually didn't enjoy himself that much. The trip was geared more towards his 9 year old twin sisters. Now he is a fanatic too.

Hope you are all having a Good Friday night!

Jen

Disneyland???

Okay Disney World vs Disneyland.....discuss!

Our cousins are trying to talk us into DL over spring break, March 15-22. I would have to give up BLT obviously, and we would have to switch from a low crowd week at WDW to a high crowd week at DL. Just don't know if its worth it.

Sheila No, we were there on February for my birthday and it actually snowed! lol It was SO cold out and they were selling out of sweatshirts because it was the end of Feb/beginning of March so they weren't expecting the cold snap.

Melissa My vote for DL is only if you sedate the kids for the 6 hour flight

Ladies, we were on page 2

Okay, so my Easter plans are scrapped and I'm starting over. I thought Easter was the 27th. WRONG! Turns out Easter is the 20th. Now I'm reworking my calculations. Stay tuned.

STILL going for Easter. Now I am pushing my plans back a week and running the budget. May have to scale back a few nights and do 11 instead of 14.

When we went to DL in 2007 there was never any question DisneyLand Hotel All the way, and it had to be in the original Main Tower!

I would love to go back there now since the remodel but I doubt that will happen. I do have to say there was something very very special about staying in DL Hotel, walking were Walt did and looking at the pictures in the lobby of all the famous people who stayed they as guests of Walt

Plus I was on such a high finally getting there after waiting since I was just a little girl.

Oh, you make it sound wonderful

Don't know about main tower, guess I need to research

My dd always writes about disney for school. Her first paper at college, yep about Disney.
