We have rebooked our Anaheim/Disneyland trip for the end of May(originally booked for Spring break when I was 38 weeks pg)! We leave May 23 (Saturday before Memorial day) and are there until June 1(Monday after Mem day). The baby will be about 7 weeks (depending on when he arrives!).

Some babywearing/carrying questions - We will have the infant seat/stroller, but will probably leave the seat at the hotel and the stroller will carry the "stuff". I have a Moby Wrap, but have never used it yet. I also have a ring sling and a solarveil ring sling. We have a baby bjorn too, but that is only because dh will wear it and doesnt "get" the slings for him. Which should we pack? Only 3 days in the parks, but will be at DTD for a few days too. Long trip, but taking it easy

Hi everyone!

I'm a huge Disney fan. We have managed to take one family Disney World vacation so far in Jan 08 with our kids now 6 and 3 years old. We have another family trip scheduled for this fall, but will probably have to move it back to Christmas-NewYear's. Our original plan was to celebrate both DD's 4th birthday and DH's birthday there; between Halloween and first week of Nov. Timing won't work out for that though so we are considering pushing the trip back 2 months. Has anyone ever been to Disney around Christmastime? Is it crazy then? Are we crazy for just thinking it?

TIA,

Angie,

I'm partial to the wraps. If I could only bring one carrier, it would be the wrap. Especially for a newborn you might be wearing all day long.

Also, the ride Soarin'. Is it wonderful? Would my DS, almost 7 like it or would it possibly be scary?

TIA
I'm not sure about Easter either, but I think your DS would like Soarin. My DS rode it when we went Jan 08 and loved it. He had just turned 5 two weeks prior. We stayed in the cabins at Fort Wilderness. It was a great experience. The cabins were a little smaller than I expected, but other than that it had everything we needed. Have a great time!

Just poppin in to say hi! DW and I are going to Disneyland for Easter. Easter Sunday is her birthday. So far we seem to go every year on her birthday. Should be fun!

We've booked a half-land-half-sea trip for Disney World next January! Can't wait! We're doing 3 days at World and then the 4 day Disney Cruise to the Bahamas! It'll be my first cruise ever and I can't wait! ::::

It'll be my first time enjoying Disney World in a non-holiday time. We've been for Halloween and Christmas.

We are going in September for 9 nights with free dining. I upgraded to deluxe dining too! This is our first trip (although I went in 1985). I am so excited I can hardly stand it! I read all of the boards everyday and am planning like a mad woman!

Ooooh awesome! That's what we did last year for our honeymoon, last September! The deluxe dining was amazing and SO MUCH FOOD it was crazy, but also pretty darn great! What restaurants are you planning to dine at? My absolute favorite is Jiko's at AKL (two credits, though). What resort are you staying at? Have a great time and tell us about it afterward!!!

We are staying at Port Orleans French Quarter. Dh and I honeymooned in New Orleans 13 years ago so it will be nice to have that theme. DD will be 4 1/2 and Ds will have just turned 8. I hope these ages work well. We are getting a stroller for DD.

We are planning to eat at a few 2 credit restaurants and we like sit down meals so we went with deluxe! Jiko's does look interesting. We want to do Cinderelle's Royal Table, Narcoosee's, Kona Cafe, Chef Mickey's, California Grill, Crystal Palace, Coral Reef, and the 50's place (I forget the name). I am sure I will be adding more to the list as I do more research. I am so excited about the trip and about the food - Dh and I LOVE dining!

I DIS! I'm Kristina (I'm sure I've introduced myself befoer). I have 4 Disney World addicted kids and a Disney souvenir on the way. We were in the World Mar 8-15th and we're book for Dec 17-20, but I'm now due Nov 30th. So we're looking at Sept to take advantage of free dining.

that's so funny that you'd say that. I want to name our first boy Orlando, but DW is not 100% on board.

We have a friend named Ursula and we always call her The Sea Witch.

Doc adjusted my edd to 12/5 so we cancelled our 12/17 trip and rescheduled it for 9/24. Free dining and pregnancy go hand in hand! lol
post #759 of 819
That sounds good! We may be there the same time!

I'm off the walls to be planning my next Disney trip with my (will be) just over 2 year old. If this week is any indication though, I'll also be going while pregnant, eek!
