Ok, we have a family of 7 going to WDW in July 2011.
Me, DH, DS(15), DS(27) & DW(25), DS(25) & DGF(22). Five of us are arriving on Thurs. and the married two kids are arriving on Sat. We are renting DVC points and have opted for the DDP. Here are my questions. Any advise or suggestions needed and welcomed.
If you go with a large family or group, do you all go through the parks together or do you go off and do your own things? I am hoping we will all do the parks together and go off on our here and there.
Do you eat all your meals together or choose one meal to meet up and dine? This is if you all go off in different directions each day.
Because two are arriving two days after the five, we will have 4T/4C/4S to play with. What would you suggest?? As of right now, we haven’t sat down to discuss where we all want to dine. A suggestion was put out that everyone choose a place where they want to eat and go from there.
I know I must seem like I am all over the place but I have this going through my head constantly. I am so use to planning for just DH, DS and myself. They just sit back and enjoy the ride. Last trip we had DS(25) with us and he had an absolute blast. This trip we will have all the boys and their better halves. I don’t want to come across as being too pushy with making plans, but I know what goes into planning these trips and being we are going during a busy time, I am starting to panic.
Oh, and I have already ordered the Vacation DVD for the kids and the Passporters are on pre-order. Just wanted to throw that out there too. And, I’ve texted everyone to let them know that we have 250 days to go woohoo!!! DH already received his first WDW countdown note today:)
