Booked for 8/10-17!
Well, I called and made the reservations today for my trip for August 10th-17th! I am taking my mom along with me and possibly a friend. This is my favorite time of year to go (especially Aug/Sept.) as the crowds are lower. I would have liked later in the month, but that wasn't very doable this time; still I think the crowds will be manageable.
We're staying at the Royal Plaza (soon to be "B Resort") in DTD again because of a very good rate, for one. As I mentioned somewhere else, this hotel is being renovated, but I was told the area I booked (17th floor DTD view) would be completed along with most of the hotel by then as work has been ongoing. I will definitely let you all know what I think of this hotel's update after my trip.
