Woo Hoo! We will be at BC - when are you going?



I don't think Disney has...some PINS, but I am going to assume the PP may have gotten an *** deal, like so many of us going in August have.
I am such a newbie! What is a *** deal?

Hey Team August! Sorry for being MIA. I started a new job (with better pay, benefits, and hours) and I have been busy.

Anywho.......back to planning.

We are getting ready to book adrs. Since this is an all girls trip with my youngest dd, we are planning lots of signatures and new places. Debating on upgrading FD to dxddp. I think this trip will be quite different and I am looking forward to some alone time with my dd!

He won't be joining us on our trip, it's going to be 3 generations of girls. He just isn't into this level of planning for anything really.

Hi Everyone! We are contemplating squeezing in one last Disney trip in August before the youngest turns 3. Hubby said, if I can save the money, we can go! Woo hoo! We're moving so things are a little up in the air right now. I just hope I can pull it all together! Right now I'm planning on August 11th-16th. Thinking of Wilderness Lodge if we can swing it or maybe Port Orleans Riverside.

The main thing I'm worried about is the weather. We normally go in Dec so it could be a shock for us, although this past December it was at least 80-90 our whole trip!

Congrats on booking your first trip! Is this your first time at Disney and universal? The reason I ask is because there is a lot more to do at Disney than universal, but I'm sure you have other things planned as well!

Start surfing the Dis... all opinions are welcome. Talking about your upcoming trip only makes it better for you and for all of us.

I am obsessed with the DIS have found it very helpful and have learned so much! Can't wait to join in the planning, I just love pulling everything together, even though my dh rolls his eyes as soon as I say the words "guess what I found out on the DIS today " lol he does appreciate it when we are in the world though.
