Hello fellow DISers!! This will be my 5th TR but it will be our first time at F&W and MNSSHP. Our previous TR links are listed below. A little background is in order. Before 2009, DW and I had each visited WDW and DL several times with our families before we were married. After we were married in 1982, we had trips to WDW in 1985, 1997 & 2007. As our children started leaving the nest, we were looking for something to take up our time and we discovered DVC in late 2009. We were hooked! Our first purchase was a 50pt contract at OKW. Before our first DVC trip, we bought another 50pt contract at BWV and the dreaded "addonitis" DVC disease was firmly entrenched. In total, we have bought and sold 7 small point contracts (40, 50, 75 or 100pts) at OKW, BWV, BCV & AKV. As it stands right now, we own at BWV & BCV. I emphasize "right now" because the lure of the new DVC resorts forthcoming at the Grand Floridian and the Poly could very well draw us in! Now to the upcoming trip...DW and I will leave our little bedroom community of Petal, MS on Friday, 10/18 around 2pm and drive to somewhere in FL and spend the night. The next day, we will arrive in WDW with reservations at BCV from 10/19-10/27/13. Here is our scheduled itinerary... 10/19/13 (Sat) - Check in at BCV. Go to Customer Svcs and get PAP (we purchased the special DVC deal last year), TIW discount dining card and check on our Photopass + and MNSSHP purchases as well as our Magic Bands. Originally we had no dining plans for this day but I read where Chef Remy is leaving Les Chefs de France on 10/24/13 so we made ADR's at 4:40pm in time for his 5:20pm appearance. 10/20/13 (Sun) - MK today. Using My Disney Experience, we have FastPass+ reservations at Meet Mickey, It's a Small World & Enchanted Tales with Belle. We have never experienced any character greet and meets so we will try to do that as much as possible this trip. We will head back to the BCV later for an ADR that night at Cape May Clam Bake. 10/21/13 (Mon) - DW has an early massage scheduled at Mandara's in the Dolphin resort. I will take my camera and try to make rope drop and get some "empty" park pics. Later we have FastPass+ reservations in EPCOT at Soarin, Mission Space & Test Track. We have F&W reservations at the Italian Regional Luncheon. The rest of the day will be spent "grazing" at F&W. 10/22/13 (Tue) - To start the day, we will tour the new DVC villas at the Grand Floridian. We were invited to do this on 10/15 so I had to edit this post. During the day today, we will probably go to DTD and do a little shopping, ride the balloon flight and try Earl of Sandwich for the first time. Later, we have reservations for our 1st MNSSHP! DW and I have Top Gun-Maverick & Goose costumes to wear. Trying to find adult Halloween costumes that weren't TOO "adult" for WDW proved to be more difficult than expected. DW's flight suit would never pass a REAL military inspection as it is a bit short Colored Spanx hopefully will make it somewhat more comfortable to her! I didn't see anything wrong with it at all but maybe that's just a man's perspective? 10/23/13 (Wed) - This is a DHS day. We have FastPass+ reservations at Tower of Terror, Rock n Roller Coaster & Toy Story Mania. We are going to try and do the Animation class for the 1st time too. We will return to Todd English's Bluezoo that night for dinner. 10/24/13 (Thurs) - Another 1st for us today...we will take the Wild Africa Trek in AK this morning! I'm looking forward to this after many other DISboard TR reviews. It is a 3 hour tour. We have FastPass+ reservations that afternoon at Expedition Everest & FOTLK. I hope to ride one of my favorite rides, Kali River Rapids, in time to dry off before our ADR at Tusker House that night. 10/25/13 (Fri) - Not much planned for this day. We have an ADR at Yachtsman Steakhouse for late tonight but nothing planned during the day. We are thinking about visiting a water park, playing putt putt golf, a couples spa massage or more food grazing at F&W. Any suggestions? 10/26/13 (Sat) - We have a reservation at the F&W Cheese Seminar @ 10:30 today and then one of the highlights of this trip...we will meet DISboard member MEK and her husband Denny at Rose & Crown this evening for dinner! Woohoo! 10/27/13 (Sun) - Head back to Mississippi. It is about a 10-11 hour drive, depending on the number of pit-stops. I'll have to listen to satellite radio to hear my beloved Saints play at noon vs the Buffalo Bills so if you see a dark gray Tahoe with erratic driving somewhere along I-10, you'll know it's me!! Those are the plans fellow DISboarders. Any and all suggestions will be welcome. I'm not sure how much I will post prior to the trip as we are making our plans for our scheduled trip next June, 2014 when we take 2 of our children and their spouses and then as soon as we return from this trip, our 11 month window opens up for us to make reservations for a combo DCL cruise with a WDW stay! Gotta get as many trips in as we can to use those Annual Passes and the TIW card!
