    Are the PM EMH's really crowded? I thought the point of having those was to give disney resort guests more hours in the parks with less crowds. Aren't there some nights the park is opened like 3 hours after closing- are there that many people who stay in the parks past 1am? I am most definitely a night person so I would love staying in the parks really late, but not if the lines are just as long as they were during the day.

    When we ate there in September 08. The CM that was there informed us of that. Unless they have gotten alot of letters it was going to stop. I don't remember when but I think it was before the 1st of the year. Only time will tell now. But I was sad to hear that they were going to discontinue the character dinning experence. Lois

    It thins out some...and the later it gets it thins out some more...But nothing like the AM EMH's...but that is just my .02. But I have always went with younger kids and so staying out late was not really a option for us.
    This year I know that me and my DD15 stayed a couple of nights and my DS8 and DH went on back to the room. Worked out well and all was happy.

    Yes, the morning extra magic hour runs from 8 AM to 9 AM. The Evening Extra Magic Hours run for 3 hours after the regular closing of the park. I have never been about to stay up long enough to enjoy the extra evening hours. Lois

    Since we make ADR's in like 2 months I've been trying to figure out where to eat. I'm getting stressed because there are so many places we would like to try! We are on the deluxe dining plan so we have 3 meals a day, but we aren't big breakfast eaters so we are going to try a couple signature restaurants.
    What are the places you think are " a must" for first timers? ( this is my dbfs first time not mine ) In the past I've only eaten at Prime Time, Kona Cafe, and Alfredo's. Any recommendations?

    Yes, that's true...BUT I have gotten more done in that one hour then 3 hours in the evenings sometimes. But you will have fun regardless...so don't stress about EMH.

    I can't really say for sure as we have not done any of the signatures...mainly becasue of the kids...BUT I would love to do HDDR...and maybe the lula.
    I am not a big breakfast eater either...so I understand that 100%! I think a fun meal for a 1st timer would be: Sci Fi and/or 50's PT...chef Mickeys, & Whispering Canyon. We have others that we really like too...Coral Reef is one of our favorites too.

    I love 50 PT but my DBF refuses to eat there because I told him about the whole "act". He doesn't like the idea of the interaction with other people while eating lol. We are gonna go there and get a drink at the bar because I can't go to Disney without going there at least once!
    We will probably try SciFi because it seems really cool.
    Its just the two of us so we probably won't do any character meals- I would love to but not sure if DBF would like to lol.

    I will leave the thread for you all and any newbies that decide to join the thread but I think I am going to be leaving...sorta. My TA just e-mailed me and if we change our dates by just 2 weeks were going to save nearly $700...and I just can't pass that up so it looks like were going to change out dates to June now. That buy 4 get 3 free is paying off. But feel free to PM me if I can help ya out with anything. I will still check in with ya every once in a while. Be sure to let me know about how your trips were!

    Count us in. We'll be there from July 1-11 and we can't wait. We'll be there with both our children and our grandchildren. We try to do a trip like this at least every other year. It's always so much fun when all of us are there together.

    I am sorry to see you move your dates. However, if my grandadaughter did not need Summer School you could bet I would be with you. But going in June isn't an option for us this time. Saving money and less people is why I perfer to go in the fall. We have combined DCL with WDW 3 times so far. Next year is the first year we are not cruising in 6 years. I am going to miss it.


    Welcome, it is great to have you join us. I could use the help in my planning.

    I thought it might be nice to keep a list of who is going when. Might make it easier to remember who we might want to try to connect with once at the world. It will be interesting to see if any of us plan to be in the same park on the same day. If anyone prefers to be kept off the list please PM me and let me know. Lois

    I think I look forward to just talking about what everyone wants to do most. That way I may get new ideas and fun things to share with my grandkids. Austin is 15 and Beth will turn 13 while at the parks. We are planning to be at Hollywood Studio on her Birthday.

    One day closer and still counting. Lois
