[QUOTE=tinker2222;1008539]So true! I think they are the must have of any WDW Vacation:laugh::laugh:
I am going threw that exact thing w/ my in-laws. There’s about 5 familys going in June and only 1 of the 5 are staying in Disney. I just don’t get it:blink: They think they are saving a ton staying 5 min. away:huh:. Wait till there collage age sons start eating in the parks!!!
OR how about dinner! I’m just going to sit back at my snobby fancy resturants at night and hand over my DD card and watch my sister have a stroke when she gets her bill:laugh::laugh:. I tried explaining all the perks but noooooo no one wanted to listen to me!![/QUOTE]
OMG I would never go without a ddp. Even if it was just the Counter Service Plan, it’s still at least something. One thing I loved when we were planning last time was going through the menus and booking the pricest places to go. It’s amazing how it all adds up.
Honestly if I went down there with a group and they didn’t want to stay on site I wouldn’t be waiting to meet up with them. I might say ok, we’ll meet for dinner or lunch but I’m not letting them hold me back.
But ok… you know your a Disney Freak when even when you’re talking about maybe going a year from now and you start to obsess about Orlando Temps and WDW crowds for that time of year. You start to plan out ADRs and look at airflights.
You’re 22 month old starts to hoard change so that she has something to spend down there. Last night she went crazy because I wouldn’t let her go up to her room to put a penny in her Disney Princess penny bank. Once I saw the little shiney penny in her hand I let her go though. And you start to praise her for picking out the same Disney resort (out of a book) that you want to stay at.
Would you believe that I’ve already put in an order to have an Princess dress made for when/if we go just incase I get an ADR for dinner at the Castle.
I’m actually picking out her clothes for next year that would work for going down to WDW. I found my Santa hat that says ‘Princess’ so I put in a special spot so I don’t loose it before I pack to go… if I get to go.
