First post! Hi everyone!

Hello from Iowa! Soooo excited for our upcoming trip #4 to the World Our very first trip to WDW was just our family of five's regular summer vacation (1998 - Dixie Landings). And now this will be our third trip made due to our lifelong love of all things DANCE! We have done the Disney Magic Music Days performances with our old studio twice with the entire family going (2001 - ASMov and 2004 - ASMus), and this trip will consist of myself with my youngest DD17, she has her dance Nationals at the Coronado Springs Resort July 1-9...we are tacking on a few extra days just to be sure we get in everything we want to do and see, so will be there June 29-July 10! My oldest DD24 and her DBF also decided to come along separately on their own self-sufficient (woo hoo, that feels great to say! lol) vacation this summer from July 2-9...so my dilemma then has been my poor middle DD19 who is (was??) currently being relegated to staying home with my DH...we are trying to do this trip on the cheap as it was a totally unplanned for expense, and really probably have no business doing to begin with. It didn't take too much arm twisting by my daughter's fellow competition dance team friends to get us to also come along so they could compete all their group dances, not just solos. I am a sucker when it comes to Disney, so we are going for it!!! But I just feel sad for the middle DD. It wasn't going to be too sad at first to leave her behind, because she does A LOT of traveling with her university's dance team, but now, heartbreakingly she is not going to be able to continue being on the team for the upcoming school year, so doesn't have their summer camp/traveling and rehearsals and the like to soften the blow of us being gone. Sooooo, since her birthday is July 11, I have secretly gotten her an airline ticket at a grrrreat price, and am going to spring for the extra 10 bucks a day to add her to our room ressie...all she has to do is pay for her own PH-er pass and her food...which is very doable with the rest of the birthday money she will get from her grandparents plus a little of her own paycheck from her nannying job! Thankfully she put in a time off request with her nanny family for the week that we will be at Disney as she and my hubby/her daddy were going to take a little car trip to Chicago for the weekend to at least do a little something special while the rest of us are living it up in Orlando. However, now I have to break the news to my DH that I have gone and done this secret add-on trip for DD19, when we are really trying to be budget conscious. He will be okay with it, I know, because I would have spent close to the same amount I did on her airfare/lodging as I would on any other birthday gift I got for her Right??? Right???? Please think of me as I break the news to him sometime this week, hahahaha! Anyway, I am very excited to spring the surprise on DD19...love spreading the Disney Magic! (Oh, and don't feel bad for my DH not to be joining us, he got to do DTD and Epcot while at his annual national meeting in January, whilst the rest of us were stuck in record cold and snow here in the "tundra"! )

Here is to a successful Nationals for DD17 and to our all around fun time I know is in store for us!

Well, that is my story so far...and I am sticking to it! I have been reading days of posts on a couple of the forums...so glad I have that to give me an outlet for my constant thinking of our trip!!! Great info, love it, even though this is our 4th time out of the gate

Looking forward to chiming in now! (gotta figure out how to do the tickers, siggies, and other cool stuff I am seeing everyone else doing!)
TIA for allowing me to introduce myself!

Hi everyone! I am brand new and earning my ears. I have joined this site to aid me in planning the ultimate Disney vacation. We are hoping to go late Sept. I am looking for advice as to the best place to stay, restaurants, etc. I heard you could rent Disney time shares, but how? Which monorail hotel is best for a family of three?
thanks!

Welcome! You won't get many answers to your questions in this thread. Take a look around our Forums and you will find specific boards for the things you are looking for. We have a DVC Specific set of forums that you can look at for Renting Points and Disney Resorts Board will all sorts of information on the different resorts. You will, however, find that there are fans of every resort so you may want to look at our www.wdwinfo.com site with descriptions of each one, and the FAQ threads on the Resorts Board and see what you think will fit your family best. What one person loves, another may not-- you will find a huge variety of opinions on these boards!

Not that I know of. I have about 1500 on my list. You might ask about this on the Technical Support Board found towards the bottom of the main page.
