    I decided to create this because ....well why not?

    We will be going 7/14 to 7/21 - staying at AKL for 6 nights and ASMo for 2 nights.

    We live 20 minutes from Disneyland and have been there countless times but this will be myself and my DS5's first trip so we are THRILLED!!! We hope to get the chance to meet some of you and create friendships while at the happiest place on earth!!

    :cheer2:

    Now is the heat REALLY that bad? I survived 3 summers living in Vegas. And have been to Florida in summer before (Tampa). Granted, I am a spoiled weather SoCal girl, but is it honestly THAT bad? And my dad lives in Atlanta, and he says, as for the rain, "if you don't like the weather in the South, wait 10 minutes." Does this ring true for Orlando summer downpours?

    There's no 'warm' in a Florida summer, just HOT ;) . But in Disney, there are so many air conditioned shops, and indoor rides, that the heat is very bareble :thumbsup2 . If it truly was THAT bad, we wouldn't be going to WDW in the summer for 4th year in a row :cool2: .
    As for the downpours, you have heard exactly right. It will be a bright, sunny day, not a cloud in the sky. Then, a huge cloud will come by, lots of thunder and buckets of rain for about 10-20 minutes, and then back to sun and clear skies :thumbsup2 . The only thing is, when it rains, the humidity gets pretty bad. :rolleyes:

    Hi I'm joining, we will be there 7/18-7/27 were staying at the BC, we are so excited :banana: I just booked the room this morning, now all I have to do is just PRAY for a discount code for a "room only", if not another year gone with no code offer. either way I'm real excited.

    Me, DS13, & my parents always make this vacation in July, I think my DAD (64 year old baby) is more excited them me. It will be my moms birthday so we will be celebrating that as well.

    O.k. now on to the dining.....this year I will be making ADR.

    will be there 7/14-7/18 staying at POP. I am so excited feeling like a kid again. Since other than with the marching band in 1990 this will be my first time there where I can do what I want when I want.

    Book them fast. I just called and did some research online - can't find anything less than $900 and I'm coming from SoCal - hopefully you live closer and can get a better deal!!!

    Allegient air flies out of our local airport & offers rates ranging from $39 to $200 each way. Their reservation system isn't offering flights for July yet-I think they open up 6 months out. But you betcha I'll make them as soon as they open up!

    :cool1: Our plans just changed! Now we are staying at the Grand Floridian instead of the Polynesian! :cool1: We are also going to have a 'bonus' day, staying at Port Orleans before we go to the GF! :banana:

    To think, we almost didn't think we could even GO this year, and now we are staying at the GF! :lmao: :dance3:

    200 more days...:rolleyes:

    Thanks! How long are you staying at each resort?

    I have been in a very Disney mood lately. I have been listening to live265 (which I haven't done since before our last trip), and I have been on the boards at least 5 times a day. Finally we are in the 100's (199 more days!). It's so far away, but it feels so soon! :rotfl:

    I know! My DS5 is a Toy Story fanatic and he REALLY wanted to stay there, plus it'd be nice to say SOME money by staying there for 2 nights. I originally picked AKL but after a lot of research, I decided to go with WL. WL has lots of recreational activities plus it's in the MK area and not all alone by itself!! I hope it's worth it!!! It's our first trip so I can't wait!!
