I believe I can take the bus... when I am at AKL !!! And there is so many activities if you dont want to leave the resort... they have stuff going on at 4PM.. did the culinary/dessert tour at 4PM at Boma one afternoon... they have the stuff going on every afternoon by the big fire pit outside... and if you like going to the GYM on vacation... please do check out the health fitness place by Kidani Awesome location and View... great CM's at Mara

I hope this help ease your mind a bit

hehe...I get all of my exercise at Disney walking through the parks! I love to work out but sadly I don't have the time that I used to! Thank your for all of your insight..makes me feel better! I have been stressing out over making breakfast ressies and worried about how early we would have to be at the bus stop in order to make the ressies. Last year was our first trip and I wasn't disappointed.Can't wait for this year! Thank you again!

You know that feeling you get when you’re standing in a high place with a sudden urge to jump? I don’t have it.
I take it plain

youre vry welcome.... how old are the kids... make sure to get the schedule of their activities... they have the story telling and playing of music instrument that the kids get to parade all over the lobby in the afternoon and face painting and the night safari which kids uswe those night goggles to see the animals at night... great for kids from age 10 and below IMO

October seems so far! But the summer will fly by and before we know it, it'll be September and that means only one more month!

Right now, I'm at an 80% chance of going to WDW in October from the 18th to the 24th. More than likely staying at POR.

So, 176 days happy dance anyone?

...and a Disney commercial just came on as I finished typing this.

My daughter is 4 and my son is 2. I didn't know about the activies. Sounds like fun! How does the night safari work? Do I need to get a special ressie for that?

no.. no special ressie// just check with CM around 4ish and check where they are going to meet... and youre kids will enjoy the instrument playing/parade for kids... its nothing spectacular for the eyes of the adults but for those getting to parade in the lobby with the choice of instruments is exciting...

I will dance. That's when and where we are going. Here's some pixie dust for that 80% to reach 100%

Oh! Count us in!!! I will be bringing my two DD's who will be 8 and 4 in October. We're staying @ POFQ from the 11th - 18th and have tickets to MNSSHP for the 13th!!! This will be my DD's second trip to DW, but first time to attend MNSSHP.

We are meeting my parents, DS & her boyfriend, DB, DSIL, 3 DNephews, and DSIL's family. There will be 17 of us in all!

I can't wait. Thank goodness I am a teacher, and I now have all summer to plan, re-plan, and scratch-that-plan & plan again!!! Happy planning, everyone!!

I'm a bit frustrated that September Hours took so long. I have to call on our ADRs on July 4th, so I guess I'll have to hope for the best. I wonder how close the last week of September will be to the first week of Oct?

I'm got to make mine on the 2nd July I'm going to make mine without park hours - I am hoping the lines will be nice and quiet as everyone will be waiting for park hours to come out

I get to make my ADRs on July 4th also. I am hoping that people will be too occupied with the holiday to worry about their ADrs...haha...here's to hoping.
