I have been a larker for awhile and decided to today to register. I am planning my family's 2nd trip to Disney. My family consist of me, DH & DD 11.5. We have reservations for Poly Oct 2 - 7 for a garden view room. We didn't do the dining plan. We have park hoppers with water parks. We didn't do park hoppers or water parks before so this will be new to us. This is my plan. Please tell me what you think of it and how the weather & crowds will be during our time. We stayed end of april/beginning of may 2005 so a comparison in weather and crowds would be greatly appreciated. Oct. 1 - Mon -- Leave Tennessee for drive Oct. 2 - Tues -- Arrive approx 12:00 - check in, eat lunch head to MGM. We have dinner ressie at Sci Fi. It's our 15th wedding anniversary. I have this noted on our ressie at the Poly. Oct. 3 - Wed -- Magic Kingdom - no ressie. My family is a counter service type so we will be eating on the fly. Oct. 4 - Thurs -- Epcot - no ressie Oct. 5 - Fri -- AK -- no ressie Oct. 6 - Sat -- Both water parks (is this doable??) Oct. 7 - Sun -- Leave early for drive home to Tennessee I have budgeted the following: Food $850.00 for 3 people. Meals - Mon (driving day) $70.00 Tues $120.00 (including Sci Fi dinner) Wed - Sat $95.00 eash day Sun & Mon (driving days) $65.00 each day Snacks - $30.00 per day in parks so x 5 = $150.00 Gas $180.00 I did AAA mileage and gas trip site Souvnirs (however you spell it) $150.00 ($50 per person) plus I will have another $120.00 for something big for our house. Hotel going down & back $250.00 (I have ressie at one for the way down) I have all this saved up so I should be good for money. My package is also paid in full. What ya think????
