August resort-hopping trip booked!
As of yesterday morning, my next WDW trip is booked. I will be going to the World with my friend Charlene and her niece Nyomi from August 9 through Augst 17. We're going to do four nights at Pop Century, then one at Beach Club Villas, and the last three at Caribbean Beach.
VERY EXCITED!!! :-)
I was also plesantly surprised to find that AAA got me 20% off each of the rooms. I thought it was only going to be 15% at the BCV.
I have one special surprise for Charlene and Nyomi on this trip - I want to book a Wishes Cruise for our first Magic Kingdom night. My plan is to not tell them about it at all, and just coerce them into leaving the park and heading to the dock at the appropriate time. This is something I've wanted to do for a while, and I think this trip will be the one. I'll be on the phone to WDW-PLAY at exactly 7am 90 days out. Please cross your fingers for me to get the reservation...
This will be 12-year-old Nyomi's first ever trip to WDW. In fact, Auntie Charlene isn't telling her where she's going until we get there. This will be my first trip to WDW involving a child. Any particular recommendations for me? I know we have to get Nyomi a First-Timer button. And I'm going to making dining reservations as soon as my 180 days open up (I'm thinking of Cape May, Yak & Yeti, and maybe Teppan Edo, none of which I've been to yet).
I know that Old Port Royale at Caribbean Beach will be closed while we're there, but as I understand it, there are like 6 other pools at the resort, so I'm hoping that doesn't matter too much....
191 days to go!
(oh yeah, and 62 days to go for my April Disneyland trip. :-P )
