Thumbs up Hotel Suggestion

Hi
We are going for the first time, yes I know that may be hard to believe, in December and we are confused on hotels/resorts. We want a nice hotel, clean with comfortable beds, not too old since remodeling, but would prefer not to break the bank. Any suggesitons? Family of 3 with an 8 year old. Thanks :

Welcome to the DIS!!

We always stay at Pop Century. It is Disney's newest value resort. There are 3 pools and a very nice food court. The resort is decorate nostagicly (I am sure that's not spelled right) with themes from the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's & 90's. You will see things like giant rubic's cubes, Mogley & Baloo from Jungle Book, Roger Rabbit, Mr & Mrs Potato Head. If you go to allearsnet.com you can see photos of all the resorts and try and make a decision there. We are not big hotel people - the only thing we use it for is sleeping & showering - the rest of the time is spent in the parks and in the pools...If you want more elaborate, then you will need to move up to a moderate or deluxe. But in my opinion this is a excellent bang for your buck!!

Smile First trip!

WoooHooo - all paperwork is finally in place..our first visit to WDW is coming up in 18 days - We are booked at POR for 10 nights/11 days - Oct 28 to Nov 7th. It is our first visit for any of us - my husband and 2 boys (10&6). It is a surprise for the boys..we aren't telling them until we show up at the airport.
Is there any absolute "Must Do's"?

We did the same thing to our 2 DD in 2003 when we went on our first trip. Both were stunned when we told them because it was also our first ever out-of-state family vacation. My DD(17 & 16) and I are now Disney Nuts. We love going and set our countdown every year as soon as we get back. DW is slowly starting to understand the magic.
We are now days away from our 4th Family Disney Vacation!

You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality

Talking Can't Wait!

[COLOR="Red"] 35 days and counting until this year's trip to WDW. We are taking our son's girlfriend for her first trip anywhere and we are all so excited for her! Took my first trip to WDW 30 years ago (does that make me feel old!!) and we enjoy it just as much now as we did then. Surprised our youngest son (the one whose girlfriend is going with us) and 2 other kids one year with a trip to WDW for his 4th birthday. He pouted and pouted because he wanted to go to Chuck E Cheese's for his birthday. He still hasn't lived that down! 35 days

Canadiangirl,

We just went on our first WDW family trip this past Aug. We also stayed at POR. I really liked it for our first stay. The pool is great. I know you are prolly trying to figure out how to see and do all that you can while you are there. I know we tried it too. It was not realized however. Still lots for us to return for.

I say take an afternoon out and relax by the pool at POR. It is a very nice pool area.

We took 3 DD's (13, 8 &6yo). They LOVED shopping at the disney store in DTD. We got them each thier own disney gift card. I even asked thier grandparents to contribute to each gilrl's funds. That way hubby and I could relax about finances while we were there. I told them they had thier gift cards money and when it ran out...well.... it ran out. End of money discussion. It was such a wonderful way to show them that money only stretches so far then it is gone. My middle DD got a hoot out of keeping track how much was remaining on her card after each purchace. It was funny.

Our best friends also went with us (they took thier 2 DS's- 16 & 12 yo) They really got a kick out of Pizza Planet games @ Hollywood Studios. Not sure of the draw but thay liked it anyhow. I found it sort of expensive (but I can not remmeber exact prices though-just that it was more than it was at home). I suggest giving them a limit as soon as you board the plane--unless money is not an issue for you all. It was for us.

Oh! And don't miss the 3-D shows. They were more impressive than I thought they were going to be-my picky techie hubby was even impressed. If your boys are big Star Wars fans then do not miss the Star Wars ride. I even enjoyed that one. I didn't even suffer my usual motion sickness either. I was shocked about that blessing.

From what my hubby and his BFF told me and my BFF (hubby's BFF's wife ) I think your boys may really enjoy EPCOT. My BFF and I didn't see much of EPCOT though as we had plans at the GF Spa that day for an Aromatherapy Massage--80 mins of heaven.

Don't miss Soarin either.


My faves so far (and this is not particular order):
Rockin Rollercoaster
Tower of Terror
Soarin
Haunted Mansion

Have a great trip to the World!!!
