The *really* last trip til 2020 pre-trip report (aka- ya right, okay, you keep saying that) 😑

Ya, ya... I said I wasn’t going and that May was the last til 2020.

My husband and @Tuvalu shared a laugh about that at our meet up in May.

He already knew he was going to have me book for Mother’s Day. Sneaky fella, but awesome fella to go with me as many times as he has. He loves it but not to my insane degree.

So, my name is Disneygigi- I am an addict. Some people are addicted to drugs or gambling. I am addicted to Disney. Whatever... lol

The Who- (Not the band) Us.

Just Myself and B -

After all the kazillion vacations with kids, we finally realized we kinda, really like just us vacations.

Much to my children’s horror probably!

It will be our 27th wedding anniversary- we have spent so many there for it, I have lost count of the years- but a lot! Only one has been spent just the two of us though.

The When- 8-18 - 8-24- * new dates are 8/24-8/30 at Disney, followed by 5 days at the beach to chill and relax.

The where? Coronado Springs, of course! I did not choose the Tower though. I am sure the rooms are beautiful, but I would rather stay in Casitas. I still like the more spread out of rooms, than say like Bay Lake Towers, and such. It seems more hotel like than resort to me. We do have a late dining booked at Toledo, and can’t wait to see the fireworks views from up there. Coronado was a hidden spot to me for years for fireworks. Still shocked it took this long to build a building with views from this resort.

Debating on adding dining, because I liked not having a table service everyday.

We do have a Crystal Palace breakfast. Pooh. Nothing else needs to be said, lol- Mama Melrose Fantasmic, And Toledo booked.

I debated for 3 seconds going during the opening of Galaxy’s Edge- but no. I don’t care to see it right off the bat and fight the crazy crowds. If Marvel Land was coming to WDW, that would probably be a different story because Marvel is my thing!
I actually added the 18th to be able to see GotG show at Epcot.
They do run it that last day right?

Fastpasses in 3 1/2 weeks. Anybody notice if that glitch is still open to book early? Wanna say I made mine around 65 days or so for May.

The only part I hate is summer will be winding down when we get home. I don’t know why I don’t live farther south than I do.... Oh ya, my kids, and grandson! We so should have moved when they were little lol!

Can you hang out at CSR until late afternoon on the 24th? Asking for another addict. 😉

The FP glitch is gone, sadly. But you can always keep checking just in case!

And put on your party face cause IT’S SUMMER!!!! ☀

That's great! Another You and B trip! 😀

If I finally decide on my first ever WDW Solo Trip, it "might" be Aug 26 - Sept 3, so I'd be missing you guys for just a couple of days 🙁
Our original plans would be more those dates because of our Anniversary the 28th. I am just to afraid of the Galaxy Edge chaos. 😑So we are doing it earlier this year.

Yeah, that is one of the reasons I haven't decided yet. If I make this trip, I plan to stay away from HS and wait till Frank and I visit in Dec. After all I am a Star Wars fan, but Frank is hardcore Star Wars.

I chose those potential dates, so that I'll be back home by Sept 11, our Anniversary.

It’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind ... and I’m glad you did 😀
I tend to do that quite a bit lol!
But....
Will there be quac????

Following and happy anniversary! The 28th was my P’s anniversary.
Thanks! I am sure B will have some guacamole! 😂 He eats it all the time!

Following! We will be down the same time but over at Poly. 8/16 - 8/24. Crowd levels look low right now - calm before the craziness sets in a few days later! I am reallllllllly hoping for some soft open afternoons perhaps?!

Happy Early Anniversary!!
Thank you! It would be cool if they did have a soft open while we are there. We always go by the Poly to Ohanas or at least for a drink- maybe we will run into each other.
Fun and happy early anniversary!
Thank you!! :)

Well, I just changed my dates... B wanted to go while Star Wars is opening. 😑 As much as he goes along with my Disney addiction it isn’t like I could say no.
New dates are 24th- 30th and we will be there for our actual anniversary and get trampled at DHS the day after!!

After a late night last night- not for us but the neighbors having a karaoke, on the porch til 2 in the morning party- 😑 B told me, he does, in fact want to go to DHS on the 29th.
Anybody on here, going that may want a friend- let me know. I will accompany him to the gate and hop a bus, Minnie van or boat, to Epcot and eat. 😑😳

I would've gladly join you, but I changed the dates for my Solo Trip too, in part because I (like you!), started to worry about the GE crowds!
I'll be at WDW Aug 19 - 27.

Frank too, felt a bit uneasy about me going by myself under those circumstances 😐

I believe that a few here will be at WDW in August (?)
