You can add us to the list, we'll be at AKV from March 26th to the 29th (that might change when the 7 month window opens up) and then we'll be at the Grand Floridian Villas from March 29th to April 5th.

My family and I are trying to decide if we want to stay at POR again next March....or......do we want to try AOA in a Cars family Suite. We love POR, but think we may like having 2 bathrooms and 3 beds for everyone to spread out. PLEASE give me some advice.

Excited to be able to join this group! We are doing just a short (mini-trip as I call it) vacation next March. We will be at AKV from March 21-24.

This is our first time at AKL, and my first time renting DVC points (or staying in a DVC room for that matter).

We probably won't do any parks this time, just make it a relaxing couple of days watching the animals, swimming (if it's warm anyway) and enjoying the great restaurants at AKL, that we don't get to very often, since it's so out of the way.

After we leave Disney, we are going to spend a couple of days over in Cocoa Beach at the Kennedy Space Center, I haven't been there since I was a kid, and both my kids are space nuts so I'm excited about that too. Then DH will fly home, and I'll go visit my parents (who live in Naples, FL) for the rest of the week.

The Disney part of the trip actually came about because I mentioned that maybe on our way back to the airport (we'll fly out of MCO) we could have breakfast at the Poly, since meeting Stitch was one of the few things on my "list" for our last trip that we never got to do. One breakfast quickly grew to a night (or two...) at a Value Resort, then to 3 nights at a DVC resort. Things like that tend to happen when Disney and I mix But with all the talk of construction at the Poly, I hope to goodness that Ohana is open in March

Since I've already rented the points, and can't change anything, I'm not quite sure what to do with myself for the next few months, no obsessing over discounts, or whether we should switch the resort, or our dates... although I am still on the lookout for airfare (will probably wait until SW releases theirs) and I'll get to do our ADRs in September.

Wonder if they will have the mine train ride open when we go? Also wondering if FP+ will be in effect?? Dont forget that packages are supposed to come out July 10! Can't believe June is already over and we are into July. Anyone want to talk about the restaurants they want to book? I think only a few more months till we can do that!

We will be in WDW from March 1-8...camping at FW. We haven't done the camping thing since our August '10 trip, but I think the weather in March is going to be measurably better.

Would love to be added to the list!

Any word on when the F&G Festival starts? It was going on the last time we were there and they had some amazing topiaries!

I am using Swagbucks to try to earn some gift cards for Landry's restaurants - Rainforest breakfast and T-Rex dinner. We always do Rainforest for breakfast. I was also thinking of doing T-Rex this time. (never did it before)

Still saving $ (money already set aside to pay for the trip, saving food $), waiting till I can buy airline tickets and book my package, reading trip reports and waiting for March!!

We ate at Rainforest last month! We really enjoyed it - lots to look at to keep the kids entertained and the boneyard kept them occupied while we waited for our table!

AOA or POR????

Does anyone have any advice to offer about choosing AOA family suite or POR? We are trying to decide which resort to stay at for our March trip. We have stayed at POR and loved it, but think we might want to try a family suite. Any suggestions, thoughts or ideas would be helpful.
