    August 23 thru Sept 1 - 9 nights at the Yacht Club, club level.

    Now to try to figure out flights.

    I've only booked room and tickets, is there free dining and how do I get that too?

    We are looking into aug 18-24. We are also planning a cruise for 2014 so we need to double check that we can pull off both. If we do one this August, we may also invite the in-laws:scared1: Either way, i'm just excited to get my disney fix :)

    I just booked dining today.

    We aren't on the dining plan so I just booked 2.

    Chef Mickey's for dinner on August 3
    Whispering Canyon Cafe for August 10

    We were just going to do CM but my soon to be 12 year old wanted to eat the WL again.

    FYI, 6 months from today, my feet will be walking thru MCO right now hopefully on the 1st monorail ride to baggage claim & DME.

    So exciting!! How are you going to surprise them? We are going August 18-27, kids are excited for that but I'm also surprising them with a cruise on the Dream in May!

    As of now nothing has been offered. Typically if they offer it it's been announced between march and may.

    It's coming fast! We call the monorail to baggage our first ride too :)

    Made our ADRs this morning! Was able to get Be Our Guest for 7:05pm! Funny the only one we wanted but couldn't get was T-Rex... switched it to Raglan Road, we've never been there, any opinions?

    How is everyone doing on their ADRs?

    I'm surprised that BOG ADR's are at giving late dinner times 180 days out. Or maybe I shouldn't be surprised! Making mine on Friday morning! Can't wait!

    For some reason I am unable to make any ADR's at the 180 + 10 day window for resort guests? Or do they no longer offer this? Thanks!

    They do still offer this, as I just did ADRs for our trip last week. You do have to link your resort reservation on the ADR page though, or it will not allow you to do the +10.

    We'll be going from August 1-3 to celebrate both of my boys' birthdays. We're trying to keep it secret from them, but we're having a hard time doing it. They know that once we move to Florida in June that we'll be going to WDW more often. This will be the first time we'll be staying on property for a few days instead of just going for a day trip once we move.

    The ADR's I've made:
    *T-Rex for dinner
    *Garden Grill for dinner
    *'Ohana for breakfast

    All of these will be new to us! We've done 'Ohana for dinner, but never for breakfast. The boys like the movie Lilo and Stitch, so it should be pretty fun for them.

    We're not booking rooms until we get moved and get our AP's, I'm just hoping a room will still be available at AoA. If not, then we'll probably stay at Pop unless there is a good deal on a Moderate.... which I'm highly doubting with the time of year.

    Any words of advice for going during the busy season? We've only ever gone in March and September before so it wasn't very busy at all. Most of our waits were under 15 minutes, most just walk-ons. I'm a bit nervous of the crowds.
