9 nights in WDW this July


#1

Last summer when we were cruising on the Dream we booked a summer 2012 cruise while on board to get the “on board” discount. We saw that the Disney Magic was going to sail out of NYC and thought it would be great because we wouldn’t need airfare & the Canada/New England cruise looked interesting. Well, fast forward 7 months later, and we decided to cancel the cruise. We were paying A LOT for 5 nights on the Magic, it was only stopping in two cities, and Daniel was convinced he was gonna be really cranky about not having an Aqua Duck (we REALLY got spoiled by the Dream. lol) :laugh:

We both realized that it has been a LONG time, maybe a couple years, since we actually had a nice long trip to WDW. Even though we go 1-3 times per year it’s usually only 3-4 nights at a time. Since were DVC members and already have annual passes I realized we could stay 9 nights in WDW with the regular DDP for almost half of the price (including airfare) that we were spending on the 5 night cruise. So, WDW it is!!

We’re going from July 6th-15th! Bay Lake Tower, Lake View Studio! :happy: I am excited. Also, with the leftover cruise money I think I am going to throw a little birthday party at the BLT rooftop lounge. :phone: Yay! Excited!

We made our ADRs this morning; Hoop-Dee-Doo, Grand Floridian Cafe, Whispering Canyon Cafe, Chef De France, Ohana, the Wave, Crystal Palace, & Biergarten
