I just wanted to say "HI" and to tell you how much help this site has been for me. My first trip to WDW with my sons will be this April and I'm so excited... I've found so much information here - It's great
I was active here on the disboards 2 years ago while planning our very 1st cruise ever on the Disney Magic. It was GREAT! I felt like an experienced cruiser when stepping aboard the ship---it was so wonderful to get the most out of our experience by knowing so many of the "ins and outs" beforehand. Then I spent some time here afterwards, helping out others about to cruise, just as I had been helped out so much myself
After that we went on 2 more cruises, but on another cruiseline, so I hopped over to a message board that was involved in that line. And since I have another cruise booked, I still spend time there. But for this summer's big trip we have decided on going to WDW for our 1st time ever! (family of 5 here) I'm happy to be back here at the most friendly board on the net---the Disboard. And I know I'll benefit greatly from all the valuable advice, trip reports, hints, etc. that I will gather here in the upcoming months. So, you can see that although I look experienced as far as post counts, I'm not experienced with the many WDW forums---just specifically with the cruiseline forum. And I am completely "clueless" when it comes to planning a trip "to the world". So, thanks in advance and I'm glad to be back!
Just wanted to say HI. DH and I are heading for DW this Saturday and am so excited. I've been reading these forums for a couple of weeks and can't believe all the wonderful information I have come across. Thank you so much.
we are taking a vacation in a few months, and have set up the deal through the disney vacation planner to have our meals payed for as part of the package deal. has anyone done this before, and If so, what did you think about it. was it worth the extra expense? was told it was something close to 80.00 per day. 35/day each for myself and my wife, and 10/day for our DD.
Charles and Valerie
PS...were does everyone get the time count down tickers at?//?
K8, I think this site says that the parks cover 51 square miles, but I think that's not all parkland. The main disney site, http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/ , says it's 44 square miles of resorts and attractions.
Hi, all, I'll post some questions of my own as we refine our plans. Right now, we (my wife and I) are going for 5 full days (although I'm going to be at a conference for most of two of those days), with our three year-old daughter. Suggestions welcome!
