Hi all! Welcome to the final chapter of our 8 parks in 9 months trip report! To recap, our cast is me, Alyssa, my DH Mike, and our DS, Joel. We're longtime WDW AP holders (since 2002), and DVC members since 2004. We've been waiting for DVC to open up at DL, and we're very excited to be visiting the GCV! We also haven't been to DL since 2006, so we've been ready for a trip back. Our first 4 parks were WDW back in January, which was a trip of mishap after mishap. Our next 2 parks was our trip to DLP in June, which was cut short because Joel was sick We're really hoping for an uneventful trip come September- uneventful in that no one gets sick, spazzes out, loses jewelry or runs away! Here's part II of the report! http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2439987 Anyway, we're just over 3 months away! The flights are booked, as is a car rental (which I'm sure Mike will change a gazillion times before we leave), we have passes for Universal (thanks coke rewards!), and we just have the summer to get through! We're going shortly after Joel's birthday too, so we'll probably do some celebrating there. Today we're celebrating Mike's birthday! We're starting to think about dining plans, and what we might want to do. We've never done a character meal at DL, so we might try for one or 2. I also just read the height restrictions and Joel is tall enough for Matterhorn, so we'll be able to ride as a family! Woo hoo! Anyway, thanks for checking out the TR, for more details, be sure to check out our DLP report too! Stay tuned!
