I'm a little nervous because usually we have been going in Dec. or Jan. -- haven't been in July since I was a little one. Now I have little ones of my own DD (6) and DS (4), and work around school schedules and a DH who is very reluctant to have EVERYTHING all planned out.

My main plan is to go to parks early, CBR for afternoon pool and naps, and parks late. No dining plans this time -- we've been there, done that with all the character meals on previous trips. Plus we have plenty of Visa reward points to use for meals.

I just hope the crowds are too bad

HI and welcome!! CBR is my favorite place in the world. We went there at that time last year and if you go to the furthest pool it is always empty. Its espesially good for the kids because you can watch them however I am sure they will want to play in the pirate pool!

At night you can watch the fireworks from Old Port Royale so thats always a plus!!

It's Illuminations! And you can hear them too!! We were in our room early our first night and were watching TV and all of the sudden started hearing loud bangs. After a while, out the door (we were on the second floor), walked around the corner and I could see the fireworks! It was awesome!

Time to join in I guess. We will be on our 3rd WDW trip June 30-July 7 staying at ASMovies. We won our room from LMT, so we will find out just how bad July can be ( We have only went in the first week of Dec!) At this point it is a girls only trip ( and believe me I am scared!!!)

Hi y'all, we will be there the last week of July. The 29th is my DD's b-day. She was just hospitalized for a week and I promised her a Disney trip when she got better. We will be staying off site () with our time share...we need to conserve our funds for our DCL cruise in Jan. We're pretty excited!

So, how hot and crowded does it get in July?!?

Looking for positive thoughts!! Man I really thought that winter was over but NO I am now looking at up to 4 to 8 inches of SNOW!!!! I so want winter and the cold white stuff to be done. For anyone already affected by the storm hitting the midwest please stay save. For those effected by any of the other weather issues my prayers are with you. Lois

it gets hot and crowded. But, to me, it's quite doable. Just remember that it will be hot and it will be crowded and plan accordingly.

We were just there last Dec. and got to do everything we wanted then. So I figured this will be a more leisurely trip filled with Dole Whips and waiting in line
