I just want to say I really enjoyed your TR! I laughed, I chuckled, I had a good time! Thank you very much for sharing. Its good to see that a full Disney vacation can still be achieved even while being offsite! I am now going to dive into your PTR for all the plotty goodness!

Welcome - thanks for coming over! Glad you are enjoying the Pre-trip report ... hoping to have some news finalized soon to update that again!

Thank you! She loves it and it is fun to dress her up ... plus I figure we only have so many years when she will want to do this and then we will be missing it

We were pretty shocked by the crowd levels our entire trip - it did ease up a bit later in the week but still more than we had expected. We've gone in October in the past and it was way more crowded this time. Definitely do as much as you can during the week - when we hit up F&WF on Thursday compared to the first Saturday it was soooooo much better.

They were nice - and unexpected as it wasn't a Disney resort!

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it and had a good time! You can definitely have a full Disney vacation staying offsite. Definitely is a bit different though - and I think the fact that we were so close to being on site helped. Definitely trade-offs but having the space was worth it for us.

... that said, our upcoming trip in August we are staying on site
