I don't really get cold so with the pools heated to 80-82 I will probably swim as long as it is above 50.
I'll be there in 63 days too!!

That's how I feel about the weather here in Eastern Ontario...lol

The Mrs. & I are taking the reindeer out for a spin on November 16th. We will be at the All Star Music but the team will be boarded at a super secret location in AK.

On the 23rd we will head to Ft. Walton for a week so the reindeer can talk smack to the dolphins about real jumping & flying.

FYI: There are a few of you that have been naughty so far this year. Better straighten up! :

Solo trip

Thanks everyone for the encouragement.

Once February Discounts are out, I'll have to make a decision.
And explore the solo thread more.

I'm assuming if I get my room and for some reason a friend or a break happens that DH can come, I can just add him to my room and all the rest will kick in???

Again THANKS!

Maybe we will see each other at the airport on 11/13, we get in a little before noon. Which days are you doing each park?

The last two years Halloween was canceled here. In 2011 it was because we were hit by a huge snowstorm that hit before the trees hardened so trees were down everywhere taking out power for a week. In 2012 it was because of Sandy, followed by a snowstorm. We were without power for two weeks then and most streets were still impassable and had wires down on Halloween. Part of the reason we are going when we are is we don't want to take the Halloween curse with us.

edited to add: We had a snowstorm in 2010 for Halloween too, but it wasn't quite as bad as the other two years.

So I am second guessing our trip, if anyone cares to give your opinion I'd appreciate it!

Going with DH, dd6, ds2 nana62. Nanas first and she says only trip. Staying at AoA

We only have a few days...arriving on 11/10 Sunday, get to resort mom babysits while DH and I go to Cali grill
The plan is to have a resort day on Veterans Day, avoiding crowds and whatnot. Ohana dinner at 5, going early around 3 to have a drink and sit on beach. Also have to return rental car by 10am.
Tuesday MK rope drop til we drop, Wednesday AK, probably DTD in the evening, leaving it open.

Now I am thinking we don't have enough park time! We can't add days and money is an issue. However, I work for a blog and I qualify for media tickets from disney. I am going to try but I hear they often give two tickets. SO do we use the tickets, buy the other two, and...
1. By hoppers for my mom and dd, use our day passes to go to Epcot after animal kingdom for a few hours
2. Ditch the resort day,go to the parks (Epcot or magic k? Not sure) from probably 10 am- 3 then do Ohana.
3. Try to get refunded one of the adult tickets for our current plan (not sure we can do this?)
4. Try to do the Xmas party Monday, switching Ohana to thurs morning instead, our ME bus leaves at 11:30


Am I causing issues by doing all of this? I am just anxious once we are there, after an hour or two we are going to wish we were in the parks, and I want my mom to see Epcot too. I am thinking of number one to keep the resort day..of cours ei have no rain plan for Monday yet. DH and my mom don't have an opinion right now.
WWYD?

Up here in MA we had the same weather. We now own a generator.
They didn't cancel Halloween, just postponed it. grrrrr I really don't like Halloween. I always end up sitting outside because the doorbell ringing constantly gets my son upset. And some costumes scare him. Plus the stairs are not all that fun to climb, so I freeze. Although the last two years something came up I couldn't be here and the respite providers loved being here as their homes didn't get 200 kids.

WWYD?
First, #1 won't work. You have to have hoppers to visit different parks on the same day. 2 park tickets won't work.
I would ditch the resort day.

I don't think we will be able to secure support for my special needs son for my husband to go with me again after November and at this point the girlfriends are not as Disney excited as I am. So considering a solo trip but not sure yet.
I've had 4 solo trips so far, and let me tell you - THEY ARE WONDERFUL!!!

Eat what you want!

Ride what you want!

Watch the shows, parades and fireworks that you want!

Stay up, sleep in, whatever!!!

I absolutely LOVE my solo trips. I always meet very nice people while in line - whether they be solo people, couples or groups!

I'm going back in November with my girlfriend, but I guarantee you that I'll be taking a solo trip in Spring (before school is let out). Talk about a GREAT way to recharge the batteries!! It's like being a big kid let loose in Disney World... because I am!

Highly recommended.

Mike.

I would also not do the resort day. That seems like a waste to me but my family is one that is always on the go! Our 2nd fave park is Hollywood Studios. You could actually do Animal kingdom in a half of day and then go to party.

My 63 day countdown doesn't include the day we leave....lol...I'll be there the 14th. And we even get in late....that was my dilemma - to count the day we're leaving or not

I'm not sure which parks we'll be at on the days (my friend is planning the entire trip). It'll be my first time at wdw!!

Dear Santa,

Sounds like a great trip. Please make sure the reindeer are very well rested as I love them so much. I'll add you to the first post!
