I am currently in the early stages of planning my WDW trip...any of you Cali-MWer's have advice? :) PS TeenMickey is back.

I've never been but welcome back!! - VeloMouseGirl  549.8 #371 8:32PM
stay at the disney resort and utilize the extra magic hours :) - otilegna  2678.9 #48 8:58PM
πŸ‘† this!! It's awesome too because they'll send a shuttle to pick you up from Orlando airport (mco) and you can utilize the shuttles to get around the property so no worries about transportation during your trip! :) - SarahLovesDisney  85.2 #3836 9:24PM
πŸ‘†good point, having the shuttle service from the airport is going to be great...the only transportation I'll need is a cab for a one day trip to Universal Islands of adventure!!! :D - TeenMickey  388.9 #579 10:14PM
agree with sarahjoshdisney. the Disney magical express is a good shuttle to and from the airport (if you are not planning to rent a car). In my opinion, getting a taxi to Universal Studios, maybe take a shuttle to Downtown Disney and then get a cab there, so that it is closer to Universal... - otilegna  2678.9 #48 11:53PM
Harry potter? 😜 - bluefairy  643.8 #313 1:59AM
Rent a car for islands of adventure. Our car rental was 15 dollars for the day vs my friend who went a week before I did and spent 80 dollars for a cab. - PrincessTianaCM  221.0 #1720 6:45AM
We stayed at the Carribean resort and took the shuttles everywhere but for one day we rented a car for our day trip to Island of adventure(universal). There is an Alamo car rental at the dolphin resort. It only cost us $40 for the one day car rental (that was for a full size cuz i have kids) but there were cheaper rates for the economy size vs the cab ride of over $80 round trip. - dznymom  49.8 #4791 8:04AM
YAY on both accounts! (WDW and you being back!) I wish I had advice for you... But I don't so I'll just say have fun (duh) ☺ - SPandEvLover  4531.8 #29 9:08PM
I went to Disneyworld for 7 days last December!! Anything specific you wanted to know?? πŸ‘ - Dland_guy123  20.9 #7175 9:10PM
When ecavtly are you going? I went with the family last year for the first time in August. Main advice for the summer is wear flip flops and shorts! Its gonna be really humid and chances are it will sporatically rain multiple times on a given day. - Fade2blk  303.0 #890 9:14PM
I'm thinking February or like April-ish! - TeenMickey  388.9 #579 9:19PM
Hey you! Let me know if you want any tips for the CM discounts - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 9:16PM
I'm currently looking at the discounts right now!!! :D - TeenMickey  388.9 #579 9:20PM
Of the value All-Star Hotels...which would you recommend? Movies? Music? Sports? Or Pop? - TeenMickey  388.9 #579 9:39PM
I've stayed at all 4, and I liked Pop the best. Honestly, they're mostly the same... it just depends on your room location within the hotel. Personally, I would want to stay at the AoA if I could swing it. Brand new value resort. It's gorgeous! - thelittlestmouse  95.4 #73 10:09PM
Another vote for Pop Century right here. Aside from it being totally FUN, they don't share a bus route with the other value resorts, which means you get non-stop service from the resort to whichever park you opt for. This makes a huge difference at night, when you're exhausted, and you just want to get "home." - susieQzee  555.8 #366 10:12PM
I would stay away from the Sports or the Value ones if you are going the 2nd weekend of March or last weekend of April.. there are very very big cheerleading competitions around those times and the value resorts get full of energetic cheerleaders being loud and crazy .... - sunshinegrl  348.8 #678 10:25PM
between the four, i will go and vote for Pop Century! it is closer to EPCOT, Hollywood Studios and Downtown Disney. Also it is a spacious area and they have a Jog Trail/Lake! - otilegna  2678.9 #48 11:55PM
Stay at a Disney resort, dining plan, make reservations ahead, magic hours, poncho, flip flops, sunscreen, water bottle-fan, water parks if you have time! Have fun:) - dznymom  49.8 #4791 9:45PM
My family & I went for our first time this past April the weather was incredible...breezy/sunny/and only a couple of really hot days...we stayed @ Pop century and had a really great time! Of the value resorts it has it's own shuttle buses which is nice because you don't have to share it amoung the other resorts..we rarely had to wait to long! We had a really great experience there! - ceeceecue  20.6 #7234 9:47PM
Sweet I'm glad to hear things went well for you at that hotel...i love movies so I'm like leaning more towards the movie hotel haha - TeenMickey  388.9 #579 10:37PM
I'm a WDW cast member! Do you have any specific questions? - thelittlestmouse  95.4 #73 10:03PM
Umm well I've been in discussion with the other MWers in the FL lounge but we have been talking about the dining, hotels, attractions and such. - TeenMickey  388.9 #579 10:12PM
The FL lounge will be super helpful! One big thing is that we don't get cast discounts on quick service food at WDW. (I'm assuming you're a cm from earlier comments.) Only in Animal Kingdom. I'm sure the FL lounge is giving you all the answers but if you're stuck feel free to ask! :] - thelittlestmouse  95.4 #73 10:39PM
Yeah they have been super helpful! They actually pretty much answered all the questions I had on my post in their lounge - TeenMickey  388.9 #579 11:46AM
Where have you been??? Welcome back! - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1190.7 #145 10:08PM
Stuck at work! - TeenMickey  388.9 #579 10:13PM
Hey TeenMick! Are you still a teen? Lol - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2593 10:41PM
Hahaha Rickey! Where have you been TM?? Good to see ya! - Zipitydoodahdad  270.0 #1164 10:51PM
Welcome back TeenMickey! :) - Ericksenator  377.7 #596 10:55PM
Welcome back teenmickey!! (: I remember meeting you back at the mousewait 2.0 reunion O_O! Enjoy your trip! - daniPLUSkevs  23.0 #6832 7:38AM
Lol that was forever ago!!! - TeenMickey  388.9 #579 11:45AM
@TeenMickey I know righttttt?! - daniPLUSkevs  23.0 #6832 2:53PM
Welcome back! - misschurro  6362.1 #17 2:59PM
Everything above plus: Really look at map when you pick which resort. 1st time I staed Animal K Lodge awesome/fantastic but needed a shuttle to everything. Next trip Boardwalk Hotel and could walk to 3 parks, big time saving difference. - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 3:00PM
Sorry more: the water parks are amazing! - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 3:01PM
Get on everything we have here. It's cool to see the differences. - philliprocks  1319.2 #132 3:07PM
