I wish I was going in April. We originally were for Spring Break but due to my DH's schedule we had to move to May but my oldest will have a birthday on that trip now so it makes it special. Can't win them all I guess
Briefly switched to WL, but back at the Poly CL!

Welcome!!! We have a lot in common!! We are both from New England, hello neighbor! . And it looks like our dates overlap!! Depending on airfare, we may end up coming in on the 19th...but well see...

We, too, are celebrating a birthday. Our oldest DD will turn 9.

So, my fellow April travelers....what are you planning for meals??? Our 180 day will be on October 22nd....not that I'm counting

This will be the first time we are going without a dining plan. We've had one the past three trips but came to the realization that its too much food and too much work getting to all of those ADRs (for a vacation anyways). We are only planning to make 4 ADRs over the 9 days.

We want:
1) Be Our Guest dinner
2) Ohana Dinner
3) Kona dinner
4) Tusker House breakfast


How about you???

There are sooooo many wonderful places!!! This is your first time, right???

Some of the restaurants that I would recommend as a must do for a 1st timer are:
1) Cinderella's Royal Table - decent food (not fantastic food) but AWESOME atmosphere...I mean, you're eating in Cinderella's castle!!!
2) O'hana - delicious, delicious all you can eat meat...how can that be wrong? Unless you're a vegetarian... And all in the beautiful surroundings of the Polynesian Resort
3) Le Cellier - this is a personal family favorite - great meal and atmosphere
4) Sci Fi Diner - I never thought I'd be recommending a DHS restaurant to anyone, but the burger here was excellent and the atmosphere was really neat.

Hey hey better late than never right???

We're going with a group of 15? I think lol 14-21st.

My parents, 3 brothers and I last went in December of 08. ((LOVE Disney at Christmas))

This time we'll be: ((DEEP breath))
Parents, 47&49
Me 27, DH 31, DS1 2.5, DS2 will turn 1 on 4/25 (celebrating while there)
Brother1 25, GF 25, DS1 3.5, DS2 18months
Brother2 23, GF 23, DD 23months, DS 11 months
Brother3 19

We're staying offsite as my parents have a timeshare. Its nice to have all the space and kitchens and whatnot but I'm really bummed not to be staying onsite.


SOSOSOSO excited. This will be the first visit for all the kids.

I'm currently on the ADR planning phase of our trip since I've been unanimously nominated to organize our trip I'm pretty sure this will be the hardest part of the planning process since we aren't planning on doing too many of these. I'm thinking: Tusker House. Maybe Crystal Palace?

Hi! My name is Monica and my daughters (ages 10 & 11) will be staying at POP April 6-14.

I had planned on staying at AoA (we were there in September and loved it) but I couldn't justify the cost of a family suite for just the 3 of us. And we all agreed the Little Mermaid rooms were too far of a walk from the main pool and food court. Sooooooo, I booked POP and couldn't be happier. We've stayed there several times and just love it!

My ADRS include

*Crystal Palace with Pooh and the gang (our tradition)
*Tusker house for breakfast
*50's Prime Time for lunch
*1900 Park Fare for dinner (so excited to meet the Tremaines)

I'm hoping to get Wishes Dessert Party ressies when it opens. And I considered Be our Guest for dinner but decided to try lunch first. My 10 yr old loved T-Rex so we may have to head back there; it really is a fun place.

It's so great to have this thread so we can all share the excitement!

I'm Jenn, and I'm headed down with my husband and boys from April 11-19th. (the little one turns 8 the day before we go)

We're staying at POFQ. Honestly, I'm a little worried the boys won't love it, since we stayed at All Star Sports last time, and they loved it there. This time I wanted a little more space, so a Mod is the only thing I'm insisting on.

Going back and forth on the dining plan. Since my big one is a Disney Adult and a rather picky eater, I know the DDP doesn't make financial sense. Planning on paying OOP, but having a hard time justifying character meals without the plan. Ah, what fun is going to WDW without a little obsessive planning and re-planning?

I've made some ADRs and figured out what parks we want to do each day...now what to do with the remaining 169 days before we leave?
