Do they go up every aug? Has anyone bought from undercover tourist? Do they send them to your house??

We've -- finally! -- made a decision -- I think!

The kids want to go in August next year and take my 13yo son's best friend on his VERY FIRST DISNEY TRIP!

They said that would be better than staying on-site...at any resort.

So it's back to Windsor Hills for us! August 15th through 24th!

Bring on the heat and humidity!

Not necessarily...you never know when the prices will increase. I'm expecting them to go up this spring when they roll out the Magic Bands, but that's just my personal suspicion.

Haven't bought from Undercover Tourist, so I can't help you there. We buy them direct from Disney about a month before our trip and have them sent to the house.

I got my tickets from Undercover Tourist for my last trip- they were great. It was a last minute trip so we got express shipping and the tickets right away! They are paper tickets, but can be added to your room key (or whatever it will be when you go!). I would recommend them.

How exciting! I love going with first timers - it makes you see WDW in a whole new way. I'll update your info on the list.

Well, since I'm no closer to deciding on where we're staying in 2014 at WDW, I'll share where we've decided to stay at Myrtle Beach this year! We're going to stay at the Dunes Village Resort. I'm so excited - it looks gorgeous! We'll be doing a two-day drive down with a stop in Asheville, NC on the way, then a two-day drive back with a stop in Gatlinburg, TN on the way home. We've never done a driving vacation this far before ... pray that we don't kill one another!

Sorry, I know it's totally ... just wanted to share my excitement.

Dunes Village is nice!! We stayed there in December of last year for an extended weekend. Kids loved the indoor waterparks (there are two) although the youngest was disappointed it was too cold for the ocean!

You can't beat the location! Dunes Village is just a few minute's drive from Broadway on the Beach, and there's so much to do there (aquarium, restaurants, etc.).

Happy planning!

That's great! That means you're that much closer to time for your trip! Are you still planning to stay at CSR? We need some details!

Once you've decided for sure, please post so I can take you off the list.

I see you found the link! to the group! Glad you decided to join us!

I know you said in the other thread you have booked already - where are you staying and what are your dates? Celebrating anything special?

If you have questions about anything, please do not hesitate to ask.

Is the Tinkerbell marathon new? I knew there was the regular marathon/half marathon in Jan; and then the princess marathon, but I didn't realize there was a Tinkerbell one, too...
