This will be our first trip and we are surprising the kids DS (11) and DD (7). It is actually a surprise birthday present, we will be down there for their birthdays and our anniversary (13 years). I am very new to disboards but I am already addicted!! I am so excited and I'm already having a hard time keeping the secret, it will really be hard when we get close to going.
I just wanted to say "Hi" and welcome to the DISboards. Your right, the DIS can be very addicting! I'm glad to hear that the health problems are in the past - you have a lot to celebrate on your first trip! We are also planning our first trip to Disney, staying at POP the exact dates as you ..... looks like we have a lot in common. Have fun planning your first trip - you will find so much info here on the DIS. Are you going to MNSSHP?

Also "Hello" to all the other new October planners! I don't know about all of you but I am still counting down the days until July so I can't start finalizing some of our plans. We're thinking about going to MNSSHP on October 8th. Hopefully we will have our airfare booked this coming week ..... it is hard when you are planning for a group of 11 ...... getting everyone to agree that this is the best price, what time to leave, what airline, etc.... I just want it booked! (Yes, I need to work on my patience! lol)

We will be staying at the Polynesian and attending MNSSHP on October 6th.
Wow! Lucky! Enjoy the Poly ! What are the dates of your vacation?

Ditto!
Having trouble planning too. I am stuck until the hours come out. I think I have my days pretty much planned, MNSSHP date set, but with F! only going on part time!

The TOT 13K is going on while we are there. Anyone know how that effects DS?

Hello all! First off, let me start by saying i am sooooooo excited to be going to Disney this year! My parents, and DBF all really, really, wanted to go on a cruise with carnival Things like this do not interest me! BUT! I have made a deal! We're all still going on the cruise, but DBF and I are going on a short 6 night 7 day trip in early october since the cruise is in august!!!! YAYYYYY!!!!!! I will definetly be taking advantage of the Free Dining again this year so im looking at sept 26-3 or oct 3-10. My birthday is on oct.12th but it looks like we're going to miss it by just a hair! shucks! Anywho, happy planning to all! And i may be asking questions about the new ADR system! Has anyone used it yet???

Just booked October 21-26 camping at The Fort. We've been to Disney many times, but never camped so I'm super excited about this trip!


We surprised our granddaughters with their first ever trip to Disney as a Christmas gift...the trip was in January of this year....and since we were able to take advantage of the special military ticket offer, we have two days left to use. We've never been to AK, so that's a definite for this trip and then we'll probably do some park hopping to hit our favorite rides and just enjoy the campground. We have a camping trip already planned for the week of July 4th and my 4 year old granddaughter already has her bags packed for it....if she starts packing for Disney now she won't have anything left to wear!

Count me in!

Count us in for Oct 24-31! We're staying offsite in a vacation home since we'll have 10 people traveling. We're taking my husband's parents, his siblings and their families. It will be our 7th trip, but everyone else's first. Should be interesting planning for such a diverse group!

We're headed to WDW with the military tickets too! Weren't planning on coming back so soon, but it was the perfect excuse to celebrate hubby's return from deployment!

We went last year at the same time. The weather was really nice aside from one very chilly (record low-setting) day. The crowds weren't too bad either!

Good news about the weather! We've never been in October, but we're from Georgia so I'm sure the weather is similar to ours. I hadn't even considered MNSSHP when I made the reservations....now we have to think about whether we are going to add it to the itinerary.

We live in Texas, so the weather was pretty comfortable for us, though Orlando gets more humidity. The cold day wasn't really TOO cold - maybe a high in the low 60's, but we hadn't had any cool weather at home so it was a shock to the system!
