    How likely are we to get our waitlist resort requests over Thanksgiving?

    My DW and I are taking the entire family of 6 adults, 2 kids, and 1 infant to WDW over Thanksgiving this year. The last time we did this was 5 years ago and we simply made reservations at our home resort of SSR. This time I chose SSR once again just to make sure we have a reservation and to...

    You can have any WDW meal/food item RIGHT NOW, no matter where you are. What is it?

    Well...I'm sitting here at my desk right now eating an apple when I'd much rather be munching on a smoked turkey leg while walking around the Studios!

    Call me crazy, but ...

    Well... Call me crazy, but we've seriously thought about doing this ourselves.:p My DW and I talked about just enjoying the resorts without rushing through the parks. We’re empty nesters now and don’t feel the need to spend every minuet on rides or in shows. Maybe a trip that would include a...

    Alcohol Question

    Hmmm That's what I was thinking. Someone once told me that you can buy spirits at the gas station across the street from DTD...If we go there Saturday night I might check it out.:shrug:

    Can we stay at one resort and relax at another?

    Pool Hopping??? Pool Hopping is ok only if you're a DVC member. It does not however include all of the pools at all of the resorts. The beach club is one of the pools that's off limits unless you're a guest there. Pool hopping is one of the perks for being a DVC member and is advertised that...

    Driving stright down are we crazy?!?!

    Well... The last time my DW and I drove down from PA we stopped at a Hampton Inn in Emporia VA the first night, it was a new hotel and a great place to stay. Then the second night we stayed in Hardeeville SC at a horrible Comfort Suites. You can't always trust what you read on Trip...

    'Ohana Opinions

    Just a thought here... If you don't mind going out of the park to eat, then why not consider Artist Point in the Wilderness Lodge. It's just a quick boat ride and you'll find it hard to out do the at-mouse-phere...:slurp:
