Awww, thank you, Gayle! 😘 This trip is already very special going from not planning to do anything at all for our 10year anniversary to all the surprises and magic that have happened since we decided to book a trip to WDW. It almost brings me to tears already and we aren't even there yet! - mrsincredible  807.8 #5 1:29PM

We had some qs left also because the one day we only had bagels and muffins for breakfast but we were able to get chips,candy bar and drink in its place at the food court.
Hmmm just thinking though...we did do 3 character meals and some other great table service! Idk how you know... - brittandkell  371.9 #526 9:41AM
We love the dinning plan...we get ot for the convenience more than anything - jamiesli  12.2 #204 9:49AM
That's a really good point too! And it was nice not having to think abt a food budget. I like getting everyone's thoughts on it because I truly can't decide. - brittandkell  371.9 #526 9:59AM
I know this sounds crazy, but we like the Deluxe Plan...  not because we love to gorge ourselves on food (okay, sometimes we do - it IS Disney, lol!), but because we can go most anywhere we want and order almost anything we want, and not have to worry about paying for the food after every meal.  Our trip is essentially paid for with the exception of souveneers by the time we get there.  I like not having to worry about that.  Normally, we would just get the Deluxe plan if there is a large group of us, like for example, my sister and I aren't doing it in November, and we didn't do it in April either.  But, because it's a special anniversary trip, I decided to upgrade to Deluxe with Mr I.  This way, we can enjoy nice desserts together and he can order steaks or whatever and we just don't have to worry about the cost when we're on vacation and celebrating.  Any snack credits we don't use, we load up on snacks and take home to enjoy after our trip! - mrsincredible  807.8 #5 10:58AM
Interesting for sure! - brittandkell  371.9 #526 11:51AM
We're on the Deluxe plan for our upcoming trip.  We are also flying from CA, so we have "extra" 'credits because we won't be on property until about 11am on check in and leaving around 2pm on check out.  Those credits are handy when booking some signature stuff like Le Cellier and the Spirit of Aloha show.  I could even book another 2credit place if I wanted to and just eat snacks up to the time of the reservation.  I think this will be the first disney vacation where we gain weight lol - GoofyMom77  474.3 #384 1:13PM

We have been sept oct and early nov and during the day most days it is warm enought for the water parks. It is at night when the sun goes down that it may be too cool but only when you get out because the water is heated at the hotels. You will be fine.
I think it's a good move not pre-purchasing water park tickets. If it's hot enough for you to go, you can buy them there. If not, you didn't waste the money. - TinkWannaBe  54.5 #88 9:08AM
That's what I was thinking. We have never been there in nov so I wasn't sure. But then I started second guessing myself. Thank you! - jamiesli  12.2 #204 9:16AM
I agree with this...  October 2011 was very chilly when we were there, way too cold to swim, but last year, October 2013, it was very hot.  You just never know that late in the year. - mrsincredible  807.8 #5 11:17AM
Crap! Now I'm nervous. We pushed our trip from sept to oct because sept looked TOO warm still (from AZ, I don't want the heat on vacation). Now I'm worried oct will be too cold for water parks :( - timonT  256.0 #26 2:03PM
We are going to pack our suits. - mrsincredible  807.8 #5 2:07PM
timonT, any temp below 100 will feel cool to you coming from AZ, lol! - jacdanfan  6728.7 #7 2:15PM
We are too. I'm just worried because we already paid for the water park option. It will be a waste of money if we don't end up going. I like to think we would have bought the hopper option anyway, so water parks was only an extra $26 - timonT  256.0 #26 2:16PM
Very true Gary, but ours is a dry heat. SO different than FL! - timonT  256.0 #26 2:17PM
Ok now I'm glad i didn't get them in advance! - jamiesli  12.2 #204 2:23PM
We were at Movies in 2011, not sure if that pool is heated... Jonah and Mr I swam, but it was too chilly for me. I'm sure it's just personal preference. - mrsincredible  807.8 #5 2:55PM

When my kids were small we usually visited in October /November - they always loved to have a swim when we got back to the hotel after the parks. The air was cooling but the water was warm and you could see the steam rising off the pool. I remember one night when the lifeguard made a comment - you must be English ... Or Canadian ! - rink2  76.5 #74 2:43PM

Sept has always been great for us but I think with all the new stuff going on it has been busier than normal. We for many years were down there at this time for hubbies birthday(20th) and our wait times if any were around 15-20 min.
We went the week of dec. 4 a few years ago and there wasn't a crowd at all! It was a little chilly though. I think most rides were 10-15 minutes long. - disneyworldsbiggestfan  54.1 #89 1:41PM
Sounds HEAVENLY!!!! We are here now and I have already started saying we should come back for My little one's bday Dec 10... - brittandkell  371.9 #526 1:43PM
That would be a good time! I think we flew home on the 19th which was when it started getting busy!!! - disneyworldsbiggestfan  54.1 #89 1:44PM
We've always had great luck in very early January. Even with the marathon weekend - timonT  256.0 #26 1:59PM
The very first part of September is not busy, if you went the 2nd week, you went a week too late to experience low crowds.  I found that only the 1st week in September is low crowds, the 2nd and after start picking up. - DizneyGirl  600.2 #8 5:26PM
I always heard jan/feb was a great time to go. My husband and I went during Memorial Day for our first trip. We didn't think it was bad at all (but it was just us 2 and we were young) :). We went the first week of December in 2009 and didn't think it was bad then either. This time we are going in January, during MLK weekend. But we will be there for 9 park days so even if the crowds are a little heavy over the weekend we have plenty of time to do it all. We are used to walk to wall people at times at DL so the crowds we experienced at WDW were never as bad. But we always use fp and don't wait in lines longer than say 20 mins or so either - brodysmommy  334.8 #627 5:36PM
