Welcome!

With saving $1000 a month for the next year and half, you are looking at a very nice vacation!

I don't think AKL Savannah room will be an issue. I've never stayed at AKL but when we went to eat at Boma there, there doesn't seem to be as many animals close by as I'm thinking you're picturing. Don't quote me on it though, I would go to the AKL thread and ask them more specific questions. As far as the hotel itself, it is BEAUTIFUL!
I suggest you look into restaurants and ADR's because if this is your first time and maybe only time for a long time, If I were you, I would want to make the most out of the vacation and there are great restaurants to try!

You should take a bus to TTC and then take the ferry over like PP said.

I think you will have a magical vacation and there are many threads out there so ask away!

Hello!!!

Hello all my name is Lisa and I am planning my first trip to WDW and am very excited. We are going June 1-June 7 of 2014; I know we are 21 months away but I have never been to WDW but have been to DL alot when i was little I believe my last trip there I was eight. My parents are finally healing from there health issues over the last two years and I thought this would be a great family vacation away from all the drama at home so our adventure begins.... Stay tuned for more of my plans

AS much as I love DL, being the original and all, you will be in for quite a shock when you see the difference in WDW compared to DLR. First off you must stay on the grounds.Whether it be a DVC resort or Disney hotel do some research on prices and which park you would want to be close to.

Thanks for the warm welcome to the group!!! I called and talked to a Disney travel agent and she gave me prices for 2013 staying for 6n/7d on the Magic your way plus hopper option we were thinking about staying at the AOA in a standard Little Mermaid room. I was also thinking about the Deluxe Dining plan; she also told me that I can book as soon as Febuary for 2014 that excited me which means I seriously need to look at some stuff. Very excited and appreciate all the help I can get from you guys.

I tried searching but could not find the answer. How do you change the title of a thread you started? Thanks in advance!

Hello

I've been a lurker on the DISboards for a long time and finally decided to jump in. I love listening to Pete and the gang on the DIS Unplugged. Veteran WDW visitor, although frequency of visits is not as often as I'd like. Looking forward to connecting with other obsessed people.

Newbie here too! I've been lurking for over a week but finally came out of the woodwork and decided to start posting.
I have very few people in my life who are Disney fanatics, so it's great to find thousands of them on the internet!

New to DIS but not Disney

Found this while researching for a surprise trip for my family in March 2013. I haven't spent much time searching yet for hints for ages 7,5,3 and new and the best way to please them all, but I will soon. Can anyone direct me to the thread that might help me out the best! Thanks!
