Thanks for the welcoming. The reason I plan on going around Father’s Day is because I turn 18 the day before Father’s Day. Going the week after Father’s Day sounds possible too (I get my driver’s license on the Monday after Father’s Day and my schedule is flexible as long as I don’t get called in to start working). Last time I went (in March), I stayed at Pop Century which was nice, but I was planning on staying at a nicer resort if I could afford it (Coronado Springs or Polynesian). Do you have any advice as far as crowds and how to keep from letting the weather effect our trip? Basically, I’m trying to figure out the cheapest way to go (I’m the only one with an AP the others would probably get Magic Your Way tickets or AP’s if it is cheaper / they aren’t going to want to go if its going to cost them alot [we are teenagers afterall]). I also plan on getting a DDE card so that should make food cheaper (however last time I went with my parents, not too many places gave food discounts in the parks). Also, do you know how much it costs to upgrade an AP to a PAP? Thanks in advance.
[Edit #1: I don’t think I can stay at Shades of Green because I only get military discounts for tickets. I’d have to get my parents to come (which they don’t want to) in order to be able to get a room at Shades of Green.]
[Edit #2: Also, We live near Pensacola, FL (Northwestern most point of Florida) and I was wondering if you think carpooling or flying would be cheaper. We could fly from Pensacola Regional Airport straight to Orlando International Airport or drive there. If we drove there, we would have our cars, but if we flew there it would be a much quicker trip (flight is about an hour to two hours, drive is about eight hours).]
