    Wowwee, it's been a long time since I stepped foot onto these boards. Over four years in fact, when we had our Fairytale Wedding. I made a lot of friends back then that are still amazing friends now, and I hope to find some more as we plan this trip!

    Here's a little bit about us...

    I'm Sara-Jayne and my husband and I are hoping to take our boys to WDW in late October/Early November this year. Our boys will be 3 years and 8 months, and 20 months old. We're hoping to stay at our favourite resort, Wilderness Lodge for one week, and Art of Animation for two.

    If you have any suggestions about anything along the way, please chime in... It's been a long time since I've done this, and it will be a long time until we do it again. All help is greatly appreciated!

    Thank you so much! They were taken by Misty Miotto (the Disney ones) and Cristina Barton (the non-Disney ones). They are both so talented!

    You will have to tell me all about your recommended ADRs... It's been 5 years since we were married this August, things have changed so much! No Pre-TR?! LOL

    Welcome Back :flower3:

    The prices you got sound really good for three weeks, Was that through Disney Direct? Is dining included with that?

    Something that has changed that I found out a couple of weeks ago is that theres now a free phone number for ADR's or you can do it online :thumbsup2

    Thanks Laura! I loved the YCG...and I'm looking forward to your plans! Where did you book flights from? I am searching at the moment :)

    Aw, thank you! I'm going to be watching your plans like a hawk!

    Thank you for that! Online ADRs would be so much easier! My quotes were from Complete Orlando; I have an American travel agent checking the prices for me now too, she's great,especially as I'm clueless! :)

    Well hello mrs,

    I will be following along with your plans and I hope that the boys will have special made t shirts for the trip and may be even a few costumes.

    October please say you are going to MNSSHP? When in Ovtober are you thinking?

    Xxxx
