    I also have a Grandson named Austin, but he will be 7 when we go. It will be fun reading about what everyone will be doing. I know we will all be going to the Hoop Dee Doo Review. We go to that often, the kids really enjoy it. Plans are still in process so I'll be back.

    So tell me about this Hoop Dee Doo Review. I have not done this. I need all the details please. I so want to try some things I have not yet done. I want this trip to be a vacation my grandkids will never forget. This may be our last time with them unless we go with them and their kids.

    I am going to try to balance the things to do with time allowed to really enjoy them. The plan is to pick what we do carefully so we get to enjoy the most without feeling too much pressure to get it all done. It just will not be easy.

    LET THE PLANNING CONTINUE!!!!

    This show is so much fun to go to. It's over at Fort Wilderness at Pioneer Hall. I think in the middle of summer like this, they do three shows a night. I think they start around 5:00, with the next show being around 7:30 and the last show for the night is in the 9:00 area. We're not sure which time we'll choose yet. With little ones it may be the early one. It's on the dining plan if your on that, but it is 2 credits per person. The food is chicken, ribs and corn on the cob with strawberry shortcake for dessert. Oh, and baked beans. There are three different prices for seating, but if your on the dining plan and you want to use that for the show, I'm not sure how that works. We always pay cash for it instead of using our food credits. The show is just a Hoe Down very corney comedy show with lots of music. We love it. It doesn't matter how many times we go we still get a big laugh out of the show. As many times as we've seen it, we should no it word for word, but we don't. I'm not sure what the three different price ranges are for seating, I'm going to have to check that myself. We haven't been since they started that. We went to Mickey's Backyard BBQ a couple of years.

    I really don't think there is much difference in the cost over the whole month of July. Might be worth checking into. They are offering some special birthday gifts. If you go early and are regester you can get a special fast pass for up to 6 member on the day of your birthday. Or they will offer you a gift card worth a one days admission (about $75.00) to spend in the store of your choice on your birthday.

    I still have some checking to do before I decide what Beth is going to shoot for. If it is an all day repeated use fast pass that will be what I want but if it is one fast pass per fast pass attaction I am thinking the gift care may mean more for a 13 year old. Just can't decide.

    I am so sorry I didn't mean to step on anyones toes, please forgive me. I have just found that doing this really helps me to learn who everyone is.

    How bout I keep it up in post (I think) 39 and you can update post 1 from the information there. I have a feeling that it will be easy for you to get busy with your own plans and life. That is what you should be doing. Maybe there would be a way for me or another to use post one to keep this information.

    If you don't mind I would like to take on this task for now. You are very welcome to assist as you see fit for you and the thread. What do you think? Lois

    Oh I didn't mean it like that...NO toes were stepped on here. I just didn't want you to think I was stealing your idea. I always liked seeing who was going when too...but when it was just the 3 of us it was pretty easy to keep up with who was going when. The only way to change post one is to use my sign in info...or be a MOD. I have no problem doing it...Just if you see that I have missed something...say HEY PENNY...You Missed so and so.

    Then how bout I keep up the list that I started and you can keep the one in post one and we can keep each other up on all the info that needs to be kept. You may catch stuff I miss and the other way around. I have no issue with working together. Lois

    I heard of the birthday fast pass but i never heard of the gift certificate! that would be awesome!!! I am definitely going to look into changing my dates- just have to clear it first with the DBF because the ressie is in his name.
    I agree with the fast pass thing- is there a way to find out ahead of time if its one you can use repeatedly or just one per attraction? I guess we can just keep checking the disboards for people who have recieved one on their birthday.

    I haven't made my ressies yet, but I plan on being at Disney World July 2-5. It will be me and my dad, just a quick trip to see the fireworks. I plan on booking at POFQ. But hopefully I will have the money for my deposit soon.

    Thanks!
    I just checked to see if I could change my dates and it will cost about 300 dollars more. Do you think its worth the extra money to be there on my birthday? sooo confused :confused3

    Well if you took the gift card it would only be worth about 75 dollars so I say NO! You can give yourself the 300 to spend for you birthday and come out ahead. That my 2 cents worth. Lois

    Well, I decided to keep my dates and not go during my birthday. See, my DBF isn't home- he's currently serving in Iraq and is not sure exactly when he will be coming home. He thinks late June sometime- so I think it would be best to go late July just in case he comes home later than expected. Plus he said he already has something else planned for my birthday :goodvibes ...... Anyway hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

    I think you have made a wise choice.

    Can you do me a favor? Please tell your soldier THANK YOU for me. Every service person and everyone who love them give so much so we can have what we do. Much of those who live in this counrty do not understand what it takes to be a miltary family.

    I will continue to pray for their safe return. It can't happen soon enough. God bless him and those who love him. Lois
