    (pre trip report)Brent has gave the word.. time to book a trip :)

    ok.. here is the deal... i'm so excited i couldnt sleep last night..

    i can book a week trip to disney or i can book a cruise.

    well here it is.. cruise cons are.. i looked at all the fun shore things we could do and anything we woud be interested in.. says the kids have to be like 7 or 8 and up.. so that knocks tayen out so i'm starting to think i maybe should wait a lil while on a cruise.

    my con about the world is all the work their doing there..

    but either way this is a nice problem to have..

    but i believe i'm leaning more to just going to the world because of the fact alot of the shore trips say she needs to be older.. because her dad isnt going just to lay on a beach.

    so now the next question is... when to go..

    last year when we went it was so super busy.. so i wanna pick a slower time and it says after labor day but before food and wine so i'm thinking the week of the 11th.. which means we will be flying out on 9/11.. eek a lil strange.

    i have been waiting to here about maybe some discounts on dinning or maybe discounts on kids sailing free or something..

    but this is where i stand on the trip.. i know if we go to the world.. i'm going to be looking in to the extra things there at disney we can do.. i wanna take it nice and slow and we will also be heading to the spacecenter one day.

    but as i plan more i will be adding my info.

    i'm going to disney world

    again

    I am a fan of September. You can walk onto just about everything. I thought they already announced free dining for September??? Could be wrong.

    Understand the construction, it is ugly. Downtown Disney Photos are horrible.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Super excited for you!!! We just got back from the World on Sun and the construction is plentiful!! But in true Disney style it is mostly hidden from view. I cannot wait to go back and see Fantasyland!!
    I have to agree with Sept/Oct! We went every year over Halloween until the kids started high school - then they didn't want to risk missing days of school and getting behind....blah blah blah....where did these crazy kids come from?? I would have skipped a month of school if it had been offered!!
    It's FALL?!? Already?!?!

    Re: (pre trip report)Brent has gave the word.. time to book a trip :)

    lol... thanks kate

    so i found this ad in my AAA mag and says something about kids play staying and playing for free if i book before the end of this month.. so i'm going to go in a check this out..

    i think i have come up with the idea of flying in on sunday 9/10. getting a rental car from the airport and then driving to the space center. enjoy just being away that evening. then get up the next morning 9/11 and go to the space center then head back to relax or go ahead and drive back to orlando and get a room or something.. i dont wanna waste a disney day..lol but then monday morning 9/12 check into all star movies. stay with disney until 9/16 and catch the magical express back to the airport and back home.

    i'm thinking this is the plan.. thinking..

    thanks guys

    well i got my trip booked

    we fly in on the 10th then get a hertz rental car and drive to a days inn on the beach near the space center we will either go to the space center that day or the next then drive that evening to disney and check in at the all star movies!!! i really liked that resort when we were there.

    we will be staying there sun-fri!!!!!

    i plan on this trip being more lady back and slower paced thats why i picked so many days

    nice extension to your vacation
    You doing Halloween party? I'd say Halloween party could be your Animal Kingdom or Epcot day guessing by last years first party date!
