    Hi fellow Disney fanatics! It's me @MySmallWorldof4 and welcome to my first Pre-Trip report @figmentfan423 , @ajrwdwgirl , @MinnieM123 , @21stamps , @Songbird76 , @Zipitidoda , @betty rose , @donaldtoo , @MOXOMUMD , @Courtney6682 , @Mr Ferret 88 , @Goofyernmost , @imahistorygeek , @Scoppin @Tony the Tigger , @TheMouseFan , @Ciara @Tuvalu @StarWarsGirl @Gabe1 and everyone else that I know I am forgetting. Sorry don't mean to forget. Too many of us crazies on this board.;)

    Here are the basics for now.

    Who is going Me, My DH, DD(15), DS(13), DD(9), and DD(6).

    Here is a pic of my brood in front of the train station at MK before they put up the barrier. Taken in 2013

    Here is a pic of me and my used to be little guy.:arghh:

    You may not be seeing me again, as I am generally the one taking the shots.;)I don't look any different, I swear! :D

    We are staying in The Cabins at Fort Wildnerness. This has been a favorite of my kids since 2015. They love driving around in the golf carts. This will be our 3rd stay there.

    Our tentative plans are:

    We are driving 13-14 hours from PA after DH is done with work on May 18 and sleep over in South Carolina, or we will leave here at 1 or 2am and drive straight through and hopefully get on Disney property by 4pm on the 19th.

    Friday May 19
    Arrive at Disney Springs. We have a 5pm at Raglan Road. Hopefully we get to see the Irish dancers.
    Check into FW and go enjoy the pool.

    Saturday May 20
    EPCOT
    Fastpasses
    Test Track
    Living With The Land(mine and my DH's favorite place in all WDW).
    Spaceship Earth
    No ADR's on this day. We plan to try the food from the kiosks or grab something for picky eaters along the way.
    Maybe play some mini golf at Winter/Summerland after. Pool in the afternoon.
    For dinner, we will try Territory lounge. The fondue sounds awesome!
    If we are up for more roaming we may catch the MK fireworks at Poly or GF. If we are too tired we will just call it a night.

    Will continue plans later.

    Thanks for reading!:)

    Thanks for the tag!!! We stayed at FW in 2010. We really enjoyed it except for one thing....we didn't rent a golf cart. We decided if we make it back we are definitely getting a golf cart. So beautiful there. Excited to read more!!

    Fellow PA'er here (Berks county)!

    I hope you get into Pandora and come back with some observations. I'll be there in July.

    Have a great trip!

    I could not imagine staying there without the golf cart. It is way more enjoyable with it. Totally worth the extra money.

    We used to go into Berks a lot when we lived near Bethlehem. Dh had been working in Reading and we considered a move there. Loved Austin's restaurant in West Lawn.

    Thanks!
    Yes, definitely hoping for no traffic. Fridays can be a bit more trafficky.
    Are you going the week after when Pandora is officially open?

    The week before you arrive. But we are also going back in late June and plan to see Pandora at that time.
