Ok. Trip of my dreams!!!! Accommodations are tough. It's a toss up of bay lake tower, beach club or animal kingdom lodge. 2 weeks. 10 day park hopper passes. We would finally take advantage of the water parks, we would really use our resort and we would take our time. Probably go sometime in January/February. Would love to do a tour of each park. I know people think we are crazy but we absolutely do not under any circumstances use any type of touring plan. It takes all the fun out of it. As for dining, we would eat at all our favorite table service locations (Boma, O'hana, cape may, France, Germany, morocco) plus we try the tons we really want to experience. We would fly...first class. All of that is just off the top of my head. Did I mention I get on the website every now and then and plan this trip? So much fun!

Here is another great source of skirts: http://www.sparkleskirts.com/

They are expensive but wonderful! I have 2 different ones and love them, the built in shorts do not ride up and have awesome pockets. The skirt itself has a zippered pocket big enough for my iphone 5

OKAY!

DREAM Disney trip would start with 3 days in Disneyland, staying at the Grand Californian & a night in the Dream Suite. Dinner & dessert at Club 33.

I'll be enjoying first class as we hop from Santa Ana to MCO.

Then I'd have 5 days in WDW. Grand Floridian for 2 nights, a night in the dream suite & then to the Wilderness Lodge for the last 2 nights.

Grab your passports, ladies and gents! Because now we're headed to the OTHER Disney parks, via the 12-day Transatlantic cruise! First stop is Disneyland Paris for 3 days.

Just long enough to see the park & some of the city's sights before we go the long way home, with a 3-day stop at each Hong Kong Disneyland & Tokyo Disney.

Well, if I can't get this trip done by 2015, we'll have to add Shanghai Disneyland & wouldn't that just be terrible?

Oh, and then back home to see the kids.

I'm just kidding, I'm pretty sure I'd take them with me. If they could hack it. That's scratch the Disney itch for at least a couple months.

I second the nomination for Sparkle Skirts. They have a couple that are Minnie themed. One or two of them even have a cute Minnie Mouse tail off the back! I have a "Sparkle Tech" in Tiara Blue, and LOVE it. I am 20lbs overweight, and it still is flattering and comfy for a run! Also they have great customer service and are a local to Florida, Made in the USA business!

Ooh! I need to catch up! We have an upcoming trip for November 12-18. Christmas will be up!,

Fave villain....I think Ursula because I watched Little Mermaid the other night. But i also love Cptn. Hook because he's mean but funny too.

Dream trip...hmm. I love it!

First, it would be ten days. I would stay the first half in the Grand Floridian and the second in either WL or Poly.
Definitely would have free Dining, and go to every one of my favorite restaurants. I'd do the Keys to the Kingdom...always wanted to do that!
I think I would do something new, like rent jet skis or go to the campfire sing along.
It would have to be in early December since I love Christmas

Btw, I got a email with free dining for spring also. It was not tied to the Visa.

The skirts work just as well for walking around the park as they do for running, they also dry pretty quickly which can be a plus in the park.

I'm joining in! Better late, than never, right?? This is my second time applying for the MP and I'd LOVE to have the chance to do this! The hardest thing about this is that I use an old email for my Disney account and I rarely use that email on a regular basis! I keep forgetting to check it! Maybe this thread will help me!

My Once in a Lifetime trip? Hmm… I think it would be the week OF Christmas at Beach Club! We'd fly in- first class of course! Santa would visit us right there in our hotel room (and somehow the elves and fairies would get it ALL packed back up and sent home…).

We'd have Breakfasts:
  • 1900 Park Fare
  • Tusker House
  • Crystal Palace!
  • Kouzzina

We'd have dinners at the following locations:
  • Cinderella's Royal Table (family)
  • Le Cellier (Family)
  • Cape May (family)
  • Victoria and Albert's, Chef's Table (Clearly, date night!)
  • California Grill in time for Wishes! (family)

We'd catch La Nouba and maybe play some miniature golf…

Our trip of a lifetime would be:

2 weeks at WDW - because 1 week is never enough! We would do a split stay, 1 week at the Wilderness Lodge and 1 week at Bay Lake Tower. A night or two in the castle wouldn't be bad either!! Park hoppers and Deluxe Dining, of course. We LOVE to eat! Some of our favorite places to eat:

Breakfast:
Crystal Palace, Chef Mickey's, Akershus, Cape May Cafe

Lunch:
50's Prime Time, Sci-fi Drive in Theater, Tony's Town Square, The Plaza

Dinner:
Whispering Canyon, Teppan Edo, 1900 Park Fare,

Also, I'd love to throw in a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique package for DD and Pirates league for DS!

Isn't it fun to dream!!

I had all of my detailed answer typed out but it got erased.

Anyway, my dream vacation will be one week at a Grand Floridian in a new DVC Grand Villa with the extended family the week before Thanksgiving (low crowds, nice weather)
Then the week of Thanksgiving taking just my family on an eastern Caribbean cruise on the Disney Fantasy in the Walt Disney Suite.

I was considering catching an ABD in Europe, then the last Mediterranean cruise back to back with the Transatlantic on the Disney Magic then ending up with a week at WDW, but that seemed greedy, even in my imagination.

I just looked at them and they're super cute. They're short so you'd want to wear them over shorts or capris but I don't see why you couldn't wear them in the parks. :-)

I'm definitely putting the Minnie skirt on my Christmas list. I have a long-term goal of running the Princess half but there's no reason I have to wait until then to get the outfit. ;-)
