    You get to have fun for longer then !! I think for staying longer at Disney, it would be TOTALLY worth having to go back and forth for a few days!! Do you have all your picks ready?

    I'm still debating Kona....I'm not sure if I should have done Ohana's, but everyone seems to rave about Kona (dinner)

    Yeah,,, getting ready to nail down our ADRs and other requests for June 2013. We will do CRT once for breakfast, Ohana, BOG and Marrakesh for dinners. We will also reserve beach chair space at Typhoon Lagoon and we will be doing DiveQuest, the DH and DD completely agreed after reading reviews about this adventure. Making reservations truly makes the trip even more real!

    Have you ever reserved the beach chairs before? I would love to rent a cabana, but I don't think the DH would go for it. I was thinking the chairs would be a nice compromise. I just wonder if, since we are a family of 4 /w 2 teenage boys, if we should rent 2 or 4. I'm worried that if I rent 4, they won't be together.

    Well our dates and resort have changed again. We are now booked June 10 - 13, 2013 in a CR TPV room.

    I have a question about an ADR. Is CRT better for breakfast or lunch? If you think lunch, will the youngest DS be able to pick items from the children's menu, even if he's on the adult DDP?

    It is worth going back and forth for a few days, it is just stressful for me because I want to make sure I get all my times. We always have got our choice times, I just have this weird issue that we will not.

    I do have a plan but I am always changing it.

    I also had the same issue with Kona/Ohana but the family loves Ohana and we are going to stay with it. I would like to go to Lunch at Kona. It just looks really good & I want Ohana. But DH doesn't like the menu for Kona lunch but he likes the dinner menu. Ohana is just a family favorite no matter what. I just do not want to give up our other choices for Kona.

    ;)

    We have not reserved the beach chairs before, this will be our first time at the waterparks at WDW. I looked at the cabanas and really could not justify this just for the 3 of us, since we will be running around doing activities. DH an I like to have a place to sit with DD continues with the frolicking. The price for the beach chairs seemed reasonable. You can likely make on set work as your group might not all be there at the same time, or can splurge on 2 sets!

    After reading reviews from experienced divers who thought this was fantastic, we decided it is a must do for us. We'll dive on 6/27. With the Disney Visa, their is a 20% discount.

    The IPO at Poly told us breakfast at CRT is much better, so we are going with an 11:30 ADR. Your DS should be able to pick from the child's menu.

    I have only been to the watermarks twice but we've never had trouble finding chairs or shade. Why rent them?

    Well, our plans changed and we aren't going to be at WDW for a week, so we aren't doing the waterparks now. The thing with our family is that my DH refuses to get out of bed early on vacation. 10 AM is usually the earliest he'll get up, with the odd 9 AM wake up to make an ADR. Then we would eat before we went to the waterpark, so we probably wouldn't be there before 1. I would assume that by that time, it would be hard to find chairs. I like the idea of renting them and not having to hunt for enough chairs for all of us all together knowing how late we would get to the waterpark. Plus, we were planning on leaving our over-sized towels on the chairs. With the rented chairs, you don't have to worry about anyone moving your stuff.
