This will be my husbands 4th trip to WDW and my 7th. I came by myself in 2009, and twice off property as a child. My obsession with WDW began in 2000 when we took our 3 kids for the first time. They were 8, 10 and 10 at the time. It was incredible and I came home to 2 weeks of what I now know is what is referred to as "Disney depression." They only way to combat it was to dream and wait until we had enough money to go again! Here is my plan:
Sunday, September 23. Flight out of Harrisburg at noon! Welcome Frontier Air to harrisburg! Thanks for the non-stop. The flights weren't as cheap as Air tran. $350/pp. Oddly enough, it was only 12 bucks more for the flight down to be bumped up to "business class" Our bags fly free and supposedly more room. I will let you know. it was $200 for the flight home, so I declined. We are taking DME from Orlando to POFQ.
I had booked this trip back in february before free dining was offered. I paid for dining. I had done alot of research and was happy with my POFQ choice. Once the free dining was offered I called and was told there was nothing available for that package at POFQ and would I like to switch resorts. I declined, and was told to call back and keep trying. Guess what? I only took two weeks of trying and I got it! They also refunded my purchased dining plan! Pays to be persistent!
Sunday-Fultons ADR, late evening at MK
Monday-MK day. We are participating in the new fastpass trial. I will let you know how it goes. We are using our counter credits this day.
Tuesday-AK Day ADR at Tusker House for lunch
Wednesday-Epcot day. ADR at Teppen EDo dinner.
Thursday-Studios. ADR for H&V and fantasmic. It will be our first Fanstasmic!
Friday-Fly home. sigh.
So here it is, 13 days from now. The planning is done, I can't stand the wait.
