I am glad to see the banter has begun, ladies!

Do you know that in all my advanced years I have never been at WDW for my birthday. The closest I have ever gotten was once for July 4th and once for our 25th Anniversary which is also in July. Being there in July just does not excite me so much.

Laura will remember. But I think it is not for a few months yet.

I am glad I booked our Dolphin room when I did. The cost has gone up $25 a night since then. I am waiting to see if the packages that they offer will be as good a deal as last year's were. Laura made out quite well!

The Swan Dolphin Food & Wine Classic info was released in May I believe the Epcot F&WF info wasn't released until July......... but then with my advanced age, the memory ain't what it used to be!!!

Ironically, for all the birthdays I have spent at WDW (I'm early February which is a great time to visit!), I wasn't able to go the year Disney offered free admission on your birthday!!

Ah, Laura might remember!!!

I noticed the room cost has gone up too -- not that I obsessively check dates and rates (but, yes I do!!! the payoff is well worth the time to me! )

I agree with you there, July is hot, we went for 10 days in August one year and I thought I would melt right into the pavement.... Never again...

May was hot too, so I think October has become my new favorite time...

I must be getting used to it! The July/August FL heat doesn't bother me -- it's the crowds that get to me!!

Atlanta is a little warm in the summer too..

I swear it is what you are used to, when I lived in Alabama and Texas it never used to bother me, but now after living here in Maryland for awhile, I can't take the heat like I used to.
(that or it is my age...)

Oh, I know that's the reason!

I used to live in CO, MN, MI, ND, and SD and after being in GA for so many years, can't tolerate the cold anymore!!


(or maybe it's because of my advanced age!! )

I wished I was not used to the cold.... but it bothers me less and less every year... either acclamation or age

You should look at Dolphin - it's usually a little less expensive than Swan ($20-$30/night). There are different discounts available, which will ease the "ouch" a bit. We'll discuss if necessary!

You will most likely be able to get BWV or BCV at 7 months.

Everything will fall into place in the next several months!
