Hello All! This will be my first trip report although I have been on the boards for over a year. I went to Disney last December and was planning to write a report, but since I went while 8.5 months pregnant, I had a little arrival shortly after that kept me quite busy. My husband promised me we could go to Disney if the 4/3 deal came around again. And it did!!! Yipee. So I called to book a room. We booked a room at the Poly, concierge. I was very very excited. A week later, my mother and father in law came for a visit. My sister in law is in school to be a Physicians assistant and is staying with us for a month while doing a rotation in our city. Her husband flew in for the weekend so we had a big part of the family together. My SIL mentioned that she wished she was going to Disney. I naturally invited them all along. And much to my excitement, they said yes! I love my in laws. So now we have a group of 10, 9 adults, and my dd who will turn 1 on our trip. I am currently working on reservations. My husband and I will be going for a week and taking advantage of the 4/3 deal. The rest of our family can only come down for 4 nights. So they are going to get a 2 bedroom villa for their stay. (Anyone want the extra 3 nights. hahaha. Actually we are crossing our fingers that a room only deal will come out that they can apply later.) Myself, DH and DD will be getting studio. We are debating between AKLV and BLT. The total cost actually isn't that different. We love the convenience of BLT but much prefer the feel and theme of AKLV. We stayed at AKL on our babymoon trip in Dec 08. We also love the restaurants there and know we will want to eat at all 3 (Boma, Sanaa, and Jiko). In fact we are planning on doing the deluxe dining plan. With no car it would not be easy to get from BLT to AKLV 3 times over the course of the week. Thoughts? Also has anyone done any of the grand gatherings?. I'm debating on which ones to reserve. I'm doing all of the planning for this so I'm excited and nervous. They are interested in the DVC and talked about going in together to get enough points for a 3 bedroom villa that we could all go together each year. So I need this trip to really win the over. In the next week I'll post the cast of characters as well as our tentative schedule and dining plans. Oh and I promise lots of pictures of my DD who is now 8 months. Her name is Carrington.
