    Staying in a Bay Lake View Tower Room at the Contemporary from August 16-25. Solo trip, and could not be more excited. Such a splurge for me, but I have a feeling it will be totally worth it! 98 days and counting!

    So I finally did my plans for our August trip-I never plan so this is new to me, ok I plan 2 ADRs on non park days!

    Dh, myself, dd17, ds14, dd12

    August 1-arrival day, Beach Club, hopefully I will be in the pool by 1 if not earlier, plane arrives at 10:30. Dinner was WCC but I just cancelled because I am concerned it will be too quiet. So we are going to chef mickeys instead which had made my kids happy! Thought of the hoop Dee doo but my dh said no. After dinner, not sure-I think just come back to the BC and maybe swim again or try to see parts of illuminations or Star Wars fireworks from outside the gate.

    August 2-DHS for the 7am opening. 50s prime time for lunch although I am not set in stone on that one. Pool time then Epcot at night

    August 3-my butt planted in a beach chair at the BC then swim, then back to chair...aka pool day. DS for dinner and if back early pool time.

    August 4- AK for thr 8am opening, Epcot and if I have awake people we can go back to the studios since it’s open til 12:30

    August 5-pool day, Trex for dinner although I’d rather eat elsewhere in DS but my son and dh want to eat here.

    August 6-Epcot in the am and finally the MK at night but we are switching resorts and will be at the Poly. Pool time in between.

    August 7-pool day at the Poly and will probably just eat all our meals there

    August 8-Epcot in am, mid day pool break and MK at night since it’s open til midnight

    August 9-pool day, not sure where we will eat.

    August 10-MK in the am, mid day pool time, then Epcot at night. If anyone feels up to it we can go to DHS after Epcot closes since it’s open til 12:30am

    August 11 pool day, departure day, well night. Flight leaves at 8-8:30

    We also have one water park day and I couldn’t decide which day but looking at this, I think we will vie on August 7th since no park has late night EMH that we are going to the night before.

    Need to book a cabana for blizzard beach for that day.

    Fast passes done over the weekend. I didn’t get slinky but I figure we will be on our way to the studios at 6 for a 7am opening and can walk over with the rest of the herd.

    Just booked my polar patio today.

    Now just need summer weather here in CT and I will be happy.

    My 11 yo daughter and I are staying at the Polynesian 8/18-8/26. I previously posted about staying at POP, but awhile back we changed from a free dining promotion to a package deal through a TA. Our countdown is now at 67 days!

    Staying at AoA starting on the 11th for the week. Booked all our fast passes last night, but couldn't get Flight of Passage or Slinky Dog. We might have to wait till the next time we go if we're not able to get those. We got passes to the parks for every day we're there, so we'll have to figure out some down time here and there.

    We leave a week from today - spending the night at the MCO Hyatt. Then we check into the Poly a week from tomorrow. DD is celebrating her 21st birthday. She is so excited to be able to finally drink at the Epcot food and wine festival!
