25 hrs! Yowza!

We are in N. Texas & a family of 3. I think that, as long as we can afford to fly, we will. DH only gets a certain amt of vaca days/yr and having to take a day off on each end to drive is tough.

We do a 12 hr drive when we visit my family in N. Alabama. I've never mapped how long the drive is to Disney from here (When I lived in AL, we only ever drove to WDW and it seemed like for.ev.er then! Ha!). This will be our 2nd time to fly (exactly one yr apart!) to Disney. The first was DS's Wish Trip so we are on our own this time! Exciting and yet kinda scary at the same time!

We're only there for one night on 11/10 then switching to POR on the 11th to take advantage of free dining. I have not stayed at either resort before so this is pretty exciting. I love the look and the size of French quarter but my son's not to thrilled at the menu at the food court. He loves breadsticks with marinara sauce and POR is the only one that has that regularly. Can't believe we finally got the fd and he wants 3$ breadsticks.

I wonder if we will have the opportunity to do a bounce back in nov . POFQ is not participating this year and that's where we are in nov with the fd. If they offer it we are taking it . Have fun joe

You got that right!

And with the way things went this year, September may be the best (only) bet for free dining next year!

LOL... just got the email from Disney inviting me to participate in Magic Band testing. Odd, because the email says that I have several weeks to personalize the bands before they will send them, and yet our bands are sitting here on my counter because the on-line personalize-by date passed a week ago.

Same thing happened to us. We got emails and UPS 2nd Day Air letters and our Magic Bands were sitting on the counter.

We drove 11 hrs last Feb. It wasn't bad, actually kinda nice to have family time. Life is so busy; gave us time to talk. Southwest had awesome flight deal this summer...$613 for 4 of us round trip. It was just too good to pass up!!! Enjoy your trip

Hello! We have a FD package booked starting Nov 12. I booked 2 nights room only before the package starts...the CM I talked to orginally said we have a pretty good chance of getting our tickets when we checked in, today the CM I talked to said we would not be able to get our tickets until the 12th. Has anyone experienced this...doing room only before a package started...we're you able to get your tickets when you checked in? Thanks!
