Yes, I found that out. I'm going to try and keep the secret for as long as I possibly can because I know they will be soooooo excited.

Change of plans!

We've upgraded to Port Orleans French Quarter for our Oct. trip!

Soooo, we'll be staying Oct. 2nd thru 10th at POFQ with 9-day park hoppers, and bounceback free dining. Havent decided on MNSSHP yet, we did it last year, I've done it a bunch of times now... but we'll see!

So excited... no, how about we fast forward to Oct!

This Oct trip makes our third stay at POFQ and our 2nd wedding anniversary. The charm of the resort totally won us over.

Alright Im in

All set for 10/29 to 11/7.....Yahoo
MNSSHP - 10/31 Halloween night

Staying at the Swan for 179.00 a night, unless Disney comes up with a better offer on a Deluxe resort in the Epcot area.

I kinda doubt it !!!

MNSSHP is awsome. Your DD6 will love it. ds3 might get a little tired...it's awfully late.

Celebrating our First Trip to Disney!

Hi to all-

Leaving October 3-9 with the family. I have a 5 and 7 year old and they can barely contain their excitement. We made them a countdown calendar, so they can keep track of how many days left. I have been to Disney 3 times in the past, but it has been almost 15 years ago. It will be my husband's first time also and he spends a lot of time reading and planning! This is our first trip, but I'm sure it won't be our last

Count us in !!!!!

We (me, DH, DD7, DS9, DS4) are going Oct 23-31st and staying at POR. Although I hope that FD comes out to disney visa again and we can stay at AsMu suites. Couldn't use 4/3 PIN on music. I haven't stayed at either, but think I would like music better. Worried about POR buses I guess. Anyway, we had Oct 3 - 10th reserved and then switched it to 23-31. Hoping I didn't regret my decision. We are hoping for cooler weather and lower crowds since it won't be free dining. Anyone go Halloween week before?

Not sure yet on MNSSHP. We went 2 years ago and LOVED it. It is just sooo expensive for all 5 of us to go. Still trying to decide. We really "weren't going to Disney" again this year

I'm 7 kinds of excited, I just got our MNSSHP tickets today!
We'll be there on the 22nd for the party, and then staying til the 27th.
On top of that we booked POFQ and it's our first stay at a moderate. So

I've been lurking for about 7 years actually,...lol and finally decided that with two trips this year, I pretty much had to start posting.

We'll be there October 2-11. Where are you staying?

Okay everyone, I have had FOOD on the brain for days...I can't make my ADR's until July 4 which seems like FOREVER!!

Here is my wish list:

'Ohana for dinner x 2 nights (this is our all time favorite place)
Kona Cafe dinner
Sci-Fi dinner
Yak & Yeti late lunch
Chefs de' France dinner
Teppan Edo dinner

Me too!!

I will be arriving on 10/17 and leaving on 10/24 and staying at the BWI for the FIRST time. I the BC when I stayed there a few years back so i am sure I will adore BWI as well.

We will be going to MNSSHP on the 20th and I for one will be dressing up...though the rest of the family will probably not!

I've never been in october and am SO excited to be able to FINALLY experience WDW in the fall!
