Help!
Call them! Call them!

Blame it on us. Tell them the weird people on the internet want to know.

Thanks for the advice!

I actually waited 1 whole minute after posting to call them.

I got all my ressies so far except for Ohana. They said they are still checking on that one. I'm sure I could fool around with dates to get that one, but I got everything else, including LeCellier and CA Grill!

I'm so excited!

Should I really push for Ohana for dinner? Is it really, really good? We are staying at the Poly and have ADRs for Kona (BLD) as well as Spirit of Aloha. What do you think?

Hey everyone! We will be staying at ASM family suites July 10-18! This is our first trip to the world and our first long vacation. We usually take severel 3 day vacations, but since our girls are now 5 and 3 I thought they were at the perfect ages for some Disney magic. We will also be driving from TX...My DH loves to drive and because of a nightmare of a honeymoon flight (long story) we decided we would drive and take our time driving down, we are leaving the 9th and planning on 24 hrs for the drive! I'm just to excited to care

So excited for you!! Welcome to out thread! Any advice you need or questions you have as a first timer, don't be afraid to ask! There is A LOT to know about a WDW vacation so read as much as you can on all the forums here. If you don't know, I'd definitely say you're next step is to start thinking about where you want to eat and make some ADRs (advanced dining reservations) asap!

The drive will be fun!! I want to hear the honeymoon flight story...but not until I get back from mine!

How exciting! Our first family trip was last year and we drove from NJ! It went a lot smoother then expected, so don't worry too much!

Welcome! I'm a fellow Texan now living in Florida. Drive isn't too bad, we drove separate cars, one kid, and three dogs and we made it. We did take our time though. I didn't recognize your towns name, what part of the state? And 5 and 3 are wonderful ages for the princesses to be at WDW!

Anyone know what kind of rate you can usually get on a deluxe resort with the AP discount in July?

I think last summer it was about 35-40% off. We paid around $275/night at the Boardwalk. That was July 3-10.

Hi! On our first family trip two years ago we stayed in the ASM family suites and loved it! We would have gone back again there this time but the inlaws are coming too so we got two adjoining rooms so we call all be somewhat together!

Welcome to the thread! We will be at Allstar Music with you. Maybe we will run into each other. Since this is your first trip down please feel free to ask any questions about what you might expect or how we plan for our days. Please ask away. I would love to have yet another reason to talk about anything Disney. Lois

WELCOME!! I'm so excited for you since it is your first family trip to the World! That is the best feeling ever!! It's definitely magical!

I have never driven down myself but I'm sure it will be fine! Disney is definitely worth the drive.

We live about 45 min SE of San Antonio. My girls are so excited! Tonight my DH found this green laser light and was shining it on the wall in the living room all the sudden my girls looked up and started screaming that it was tinkerbell. It was so cute we hard a hard time not laughing. They tried to chase her and finally she said goodnight. I'm sure she will appear severel times before our trip!
