Hi to everyone here on the Resorts Board! My family and I just got back a couple of days ago from the August 28th Disney Magic cruise! It was originally a 7-night cruise but was extended to a 10-night cruise due to Hurricane Frances. I have to say, we are extremely impressed with how DCL handled everything. The ship is absolutely beautiful and every single CM we came in contact with was wonderful. If you have any specific cruise questions, I'd be more than happy to answer them! But now onto my resorts-related issue! We were supposed to stay at the Polynesian resort last weekend, after the cruise. But we were on the ship instead. So.....now I am thinking of planning a short Disney World trip for next summer. Maybe second week of July; Thursday July 7th till Tuesday the 12th. Can anyone tell me what the weather and crowds are like, right after 4th of July?? Would we be better off going a week later, after the July 4th crowds are gone, or would it be just as crowded? Our anniversary is July 8th, which is why I first thought to plan it so we'd be in WDW on that date, but it's not crucial. Also.....since we'd be staying for 4-5 nights, now I'm wondering if we should go with the Wilderness Lodge, rather than the Polynesian. I know this decision is up to me... I know all of the good things about each resort already from prior research. While we really want to try the WL at some point, my DH is mentioning the Polynesian, since we didn't get to stay there last weekend. I'm leaning towards the WL because it'd be less $$ for the resort, especially since this trip would be right after another cruise, next June. Anyway....I am trying to look at this in a positive way, as an opportunity to plan another Disney trip!! I'd LOVE another Disney cruise but we're already booked on Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Seas for next June (we're traveling with siblings and their spouses, and they prefer RCI). Thanks for reading!!
