Postponed trip

My husband found out for sure that he will be overseas in October. He leaves July 1 and won't be home until February.

I think we'll probably go the end of April 2014. It seems so far away!

I hope you all have a fantastic trip in October.

I'm so sorry to hear that! I'm assuming military? My family would like to thank him and your family for his service and sacrifices.

My bride and I, along with our matron-of-honor, her husband (one of my groomsmen) and their 2 kids will be heading to WDW for our honeymoon a few weeks after our wedding. We'll be there from Oct 30 to November 9th. I'm really hoping we can hit MNSSHP and MVMCP while we are there.

So is this also the place where we discuss trip planning and park strategy? Or just say "hi - we are going in October as well?"

If it is the former, I am wondering if the F&W offerrings at Epcot mean that one would not really want an ADR for dinner, but would rather roam/graze? Do the TS restaurants have little CS booths outside associated with them during this time as well? Or do the TS restaurants do something fantastic inside that cannot be had at other times?

Thanks,
Sydnerella's mama

This is absolutely the former! I would love for everyone to chat about their plans. The F&W festival is booths set up around World Showcase, nothing different in the restaurants. They are like kiosks of sorts. If I had planned on doing the F&W offerings, no I would not have a dinner ADR. That would be WAY too much food!

CSR Opened up for our dates

I just did a search for CSR and out dates were open for the 2QB rooms. So we were able to switch from POR to CSR. My wife is on .

They have standard and preferred rooms available now. Has anyone stayed at CSR? The preferred are closer to main bldg, is that a big plus?

That's great! I have edited the first post for you. We stayed at Coronado Springs last time and I would have paid the extra money to be in a preferred room closer to the front had I known that being back in the Ranchos was so far away. We were close to a bus stop, but it was quite the trek to the main building, which I got very annoyed with by the end of our trip. I had put in a room request and it was certainly not met. Other than that, the resort was absolutely beautiful! My only other complaint was that the kiddie pool area had a lot of leaves in it. It was kind of strange, plus the kiddie pool had a "lip" on it and my little guy tripped on it a few times.

We're first-timers, when can we anticipate park hours to be released for October? The OCD part of me is dying to start planning out days & dining, but I can't do much of anything right now.

Thank you for sharing. We have requested 8B, its close to a bus stop and the main pool, but we are afraid of getting like Ranchos 7A, it doesn't look to be close to anything.

Parks hours are typically released about 180 days ahead of time, so park hours for October should be released around mid-April.
