    Touring Plans Crowd Calendar... not a big difference between dates in July and August?? how?

    oooh - i like that answer! if i could just wait it out and do last tail end of that last week of august i would - but being i'm a teacher and sis my husband, it'll be a real pain... so perhaps it isn't worth the 'pain' for the lower estimated crowd... thank you!

    Can you purchase the dining plan at the Swan or Dolphin?

    Just curious if you can purchase the dining plan while staying at Swan or Dolphin? And, if it's during the Free Dining plan program, is it offered?

    First trip to FL/WDW - should we also do Universal?

    And, I have an insane Lego-fan - so a friend recommended one day at Legoland. But then honestly, it seems like to do all of that - regardless of how much time we have... we are off all summer... but to do all three parks, would it water it all down? seems to take away the magic a bit...

    First trip to FL/WDW - should we also do Universal?

    Thank you. I was originally thinking to do 5 day tickets at Disney -- for the first time. Then if I decided to add in Universal it would be an additional two park days. Not take away a day from Disney. I'm sure 5 days is actually not enough for getting a lot in at Disney anyway, but I thought...

    First Time Trip Summer Timing Advice Needed...

    Thank you so much! Yes - I'm thinking just Swan or Dolphin now. Seems like a good balance because I can convert some Marriott points to them.

    First trip to FL/WDW - should we also do Universal?

    So we are currently planning a trip for our two boys to WDW this summer. Dates are still up in the air. I think this will be our only trip to Orlando... so my boys will be 9 and 10 - or 8 and 9, depending on the dates -- I'm wondering if we should do two days at Universal. Not sure if that...

    First Time Trip Summer Timing Advice Needed...

    I'm assuming the crowd calendar on touring plans are pretty good -- i did sign up and pay for the access, not that i think any one plan can really predict the future... but looking at pure numbers -- the third week of august, say 20th - 29th -- there are lighter days but only some are really...

    First Time Trip Summer Timing Advice Needed...

    Great - thank you. I'm so confused -- I joined that "touring plans" to see the crowd trackers, and see that honestly, it seems like the difference between july - like the week after july 4th, vs. late august, the numbers in each park vary by not so much... the big difference is between say the...

    First Time Trip Summer Timing Advice Needed...

    oh, wow - thank you all so much. yes, i've looked into the DAS pass system a bit -- I think that will be helpful. love the information you all gave. oddly enough i know three people who are booking the week of august 17th, so i was thinking, maybe the "quiet season" has gotten out -- ad...

    First Time Trip Summer Timing Advice Needed...

    Do any of you think this summer will be different due to the pricing being out there right now? when i look at july day to day and august day to day, i can see the difference in pricing by say about between 0 - 10 dollars a day for a five day ticket... i'm not looking at that for anything but...

    First Time Trip Summer Timing Advice Needed...

    My husband and I are both teachers in the same NJ district. We can't take any time off during the school year... and we have two boys, ages 8 and 9. They have never been to Disney, nor on a plane, or on a real full on vacation before. I' writing to ask about crowds in July VS August... not...
