    DHs one request was Tusker House for breakfast. I want BOG but I will prob just do lunch there. We are thinking Cape May (for the seafood), and Tepin Edos and possibly MM for Fantasmic Dinner package. Still thinking about other places.

    12th - 19th. Can't book our resort until next Tuesday.
    We are celebrating my DDs birthdays. One is in September and the others will happen while at WDW. I'll post back with our resort when we nail it down!

    Officially booked! Same dates of Oct 6-10 but at BLT (BWV did not have availability) So excited!!! I am just finishing up my Dec TR (I actually just did a marathon update of 4.5 days) I am going to start a PTR for this trip and include my Jan 2014 trip as well. Now just need to wait on ADR's opening up!!

    I have decided on 3 dinner ADRs at Flying Fish, Citricos and Artist Point. I figured one night of just World Showcase food for dinner. I also want to try BOG for lunch, Kona Café and Kouzzina (maybe?) for breakfast.

    So excited!!

    Finally bit the bullet and bought Annual Passes today! The vouchers should be here within a couple weeks. I also called WDW today to make a payment, add our room requests and add Magical Express flight info. Woohoo!

    Now to figure out some daily plans, before the 180 day mark and MNSSHP tickets go on sale. And, hoping they'll be some type of AP room discount that comes out closer to the trip. Come on pixie dust!!

    Hi L-Harper! I remember you from the September 2011 thread, it looks like you're doing just as great managing this one as you did that one! Congratulations on your move to Florida, how exciting!

    We are headed down 10/6-10/13, staying at POR in a Royal room. We haven't booked yet, trying to hold out for some kind of discount, but will def book by 180 days to make our ADRs.

    I'm a little jealous of your little guy being 40 inches--mine is only 36 right now (despite being a year older) and I don't think there's any way he'll grow 4 inches by October. ;)

    After our week at WDW we are headed to Marriott Lakeshore Reserves for a week with my Dad, Stepmom, Brother, and Sister-in-law. We don't know yet if we'll have any Disney days with them, so we had to make sure we get our Disney in ahead of time!

    We are really looking forward to FW and MNSSHP again.:yay:

    Hello October planners!

    We just booked AofA today for Oct. 11-14. We are flying in for three crazy days!
    We have never been to Disney in October and the reason we booked in October is to attend MNSSHP! We also hope to spend one day in Epcot! So excited!!!
