This is fun!! I have 3 littles 6,3,1 1/2. Brody (6) is the only one tall enough for the 'bigger' rides so he loves radiator springs racers and at wdw he really liked the mine train and dinosaurs. Brooklyn (3) is all girly stuff. Her favorite ride is Ariel! But she's also a Sofia, tink and Minnie fan along with the rest of the princesses. Every few weeks she picks a new movie to watch. This week it  More...
Good morning Gayle, thank you for this. I was just wondering the other day about everyone's family's and such. I haven't been here as long as some of you guys.i wanted to send out some surprise  gifts but didn't know much about some of yas. Well I have 2 crazy lovable boys ( ages 13 and 7) we all love disney, we go as often as we can but it sometimes a few yrs between trips. Both my boys like doing he pin traders. ( we just started Nates on our last trip....he was addicted  right way)I love anything about a disney trip, the rides, the food, the atmosphere. but I guess the top of my list is the time with my family. It's absolutely magical to be able to get away and have all you worries dissappear and get to enjoy one another. My boys ( including my hubby ) are all about the food first then the rides. Not so much the mushy stuff that I love so much. Thank you for this - jamiesli  33.6 #126 9:10AM
I figured we haven't done it for a while and we have so newer MWers so we would just play catch up. Is Nate the 7 yr old? My oldest grandson who is 20 now was my biggest pin trading addict and he was @ that age when he started. I totally agree, I feel I am in another world when I'm there and my biggest worry is where do we eat next!! - mmddgp  618.5 #10 6:10PM
I also think we should do a Christmas in July secret  santa!! That would be fun!! - jamiesli  33.6 #126 9:11AM
Oh yay I love getting to know our MW family better!! For those who don't know my name is Dwan, I have a wonderful husband who supports my Disney addiction though shaking his head at times lol. We went on our honeymoon to WDW, he is my Prince Charming!! I have two children who I stay home with a daughter Haley who is 6, a son Riley who is 3. We live in southeast Texas.  Haley's favorite character is princesses usually Cinderella  or Elsa, Riley's favorite is Woody. The hubby likes Grumpy cause well he can be πŸ˜‰ and since I was a kid I'm a Mickey fan!! I do like Cinderella and Merida(I relate to the crazy curls lol), but Mickey is #1.  My first trip to wdw was in 2007 and I've been hooked ever since. We took Haley for the 1st time on her 4th birthday in 2012 and just came back a couple weeks ago for Riley's 1st trip with my brother and his family. We are going back next June with Haley's dance studio, so excited to see my baby dance at Disney world! Thank you Gayle for doing this AK!  - txdisneymomma  112.7 #65 9:07PM
This is awesome! My name is Heather and I live in Central Ny. I work at the New Hartford American Legion. I have 2 kids and 1 granddaughter. My daughter Kirsten is 21, my son Ethan is 13, and my granddaughter Adelyn will be 1 in a few weeks. We all love Disney! We try to go at least 2 times a year. Our first visit was 2009. I absolutely fell in love with it! A lot out visits it's just my son and I. He loves to go to Epcot and try all the different foods. He loves to cook so I think he's looking for new things to try to make. My favorite is Elsa! Hope to meet her this visit. My son loves Donald, my daughters favorite is Belle, and my granddaughter shows quite a liking for Doc McStuffins. I'm super excited for our trip which is 4 weeks from Saturday. We are staying our first 2 nights at the Contemporary. I've always wanted to so I decided let's just do it! Thank you and please add me! - disneygrandma1  33.7 #125 10:19PM

We have stayed at both. We picked pop this last trip because of the bus. But we saw that all the all stars had their own bus, they didn't share anymore. So I would say stay at the all stars and save $ and use it for something else. 
We normally stay at pop. We really like it there the one major pro is the have there own buses and don't share them with any other resort. But we are trying all stars sports in april. So we will see. Happy planning! :) - jamiesli  33.6 #126 9:04AM
One good thing about sports is you are first on the run so that is good - mmddgp  618.5 #10 9:06AM

When we just went in January all the all star resorts had their own bus. And we tended to see them come before ours (pop).  - brodysmommy  406.0 #510 6:41PM
Love the theming of both but the busing is much better at the pops - mmddgp  618.5 #10 9:05AM

I agree, the plaza inn chicken is really good and good priced. Can even split the meal and just add another piece of chicken instead of 2 meals. That's what we tend to do. Or just a simple corn dog at the corn dog truck. We also like the flat bread pizza at pinochio's place. There's great pasta at the pizza port (or something) by space mountain. And then there is baked potatoes and lobster rolls a  More...
What's the budget? Big Thunder Ranch BBQ is all you can eat and delicious, but it's $30pp. Probably the best bang for your buck is the Plaza Inn fried chicken dinner. 3 HUGE pieces of chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, and a biscuit for approx $13-14. - DisneyCREWmom  123.3 #3055 1:59PM

Baked potatoes or soup bowls.  The potatoes are huge and completely loaded.  The soup bowls are very filling.  They in a bread bowl.  Potatoes are 8.99, soup bowl about 9.99.  My husband and I liked to get potatoes and then get the half chicken plate from Rancho del Zocola.  Lots of food and costs about 30.  - PrincessAuroraMomma  551.6 #344 5:07PM

Better chance going on a Thursday. Then he has a better chance covering a, lot in one day. Especially starting as soon as the park opens. Friday and Saturday is going to be much more croweded, since a lot local residents will go after work on a friday.  - islandgirl58  323.8 #22 10:14PM

No matter one day or two, or park hopper, they should get there early , the lines are short the first hour or so. If a hopper,they  can run and get a FP for DCA Carsland racers right away, then run over to GRR and get WOC  FP, (WOC does not count towards regular FPs) keep an eye on return time, run over to DL and get a FP for  a must ride attraction, then get one for Fantasmic if the timing is right that day to do both. If they always check the time on the bottom of the FP, it says when they can get another. Splash gets very hard to get a FP for as does GRR on a hot day but it's also warm enough at night to go on them and the lines are short. The canoe boats are something I tell everyone to do but they close about 5 , they're the only ones in any parks that do not have motors so you really paddle! Fun if you have a good Guide too! The  fireworks are at 930, you can squish in places at the last minute, but not in front of the castle. If you stand near the hub or tomorrowland side you can see Matterhorn and castle which is awesome because there's a surprise! (Don't want to spoil it) but you can watch fireworks from rivers of America or IASW or Main Street is and see the projections so it's a tough choice! Hope that helps! Free ice water at all the food places except carts too do they stay cool. If there is a line for bathroom there's always a shorter one close by.  - secretagentangel  1695.4 #87 12:21AM
