PostSubject: Another Short Trip For Doc   Fri May 24, 2013 5:03 pm

Hi All

Due to my DD entering High School in the fall and it is frowned upon to pull kids out for family vacations and that and she will probably be playing on the Volley Ball team so.........

Wednesday November 6th to Sunday November 10th (NJ Teachers Convention). The kids have requested Art of Animation (No Love For Dad and CSR)

Right now we are in a standard room but if we can find the free meal plan for this trip I am going to surprise them with the Cars Suite

We have two days with Park Hopper for the parks.

More to come.......

Sounds good! We toured AoA and the place is amazing to look at, that's for sure.

You'll be there the same time as us again! We want to come check out AoA on one of our down days- it looks so cool! We do the same thing- plan vacation around baseball & band schedules, and so it's not during testing weeks for school. Thankfully we've never had a problem and teachers have been very accomodating.

Tried to make reservations for California Grill. Said due to refurbishment they are not taking reservations. Thought the refurb was supposed to be done by now. Any inside scoop on when it will be done and reservations will start again?

California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort has opened reservations for select Fall dates

You'll have to keep trying because they will eventually open more dates in your timeframe.

Keep an eye on your email. A lot of Free Dining pin codes went out over the last week. Unfortunately not for me...

Had to cancel our big trip to Punta Cana due to The Mrs's Dad's health. Thank God for Trip Insurance.
Disney is going to be it this year unless you count going to Maryland for the DDs Softball World Series.

Sorry to hear that Doc. My DW's dad isn't doing well either. Hopefully both will be fine.

Hope your DD does well in Maryland.

Trip insurance for the canceled trip has paid off...Thank God. That's a big chunk of change coming back. Not to pleased that our Jet Blue flight time has been changed to a later flight. we were flying out at 630 from Westchester now it has been changed to 1044. GRRRRRR. Purposely took the early flight so we could have more time on this short trip. Oh Well.

With all this money coming back I may have to upgrade to a suite and surprise the kids.


The DD did great in Maryland. Total she was 4-8 with 2 doubles and two singles, 7 walks and 8 RBIs. Her one double missed going over the fence by inches. At 215 feet in right field it would have been out at her middle school field (185ft). Played 1st base and outfield the whole tourney and had a blast. She just made a new 16U club team within the same organization as she aged up from her old team. Today was her 1st official day of HS. GULP Shocked

That's awesome! Your DD is doing well.

The suite sounds fantastic and should be a big surprise.

Oh wow, a suite would be great! I'd highly recommend the Cars section.

Congrats to dd going to Maryland and doing great.

Did you go to Comic Con this year?

Did you see SW Celebration Anaheim is in 2015 in April?

Sorry about your fil, but I'm glad some pixie dust will come of it.
Don't know how much extra you got back, but the kids might like the MVMCP, plus it would give you extra park time with virtually no waits.
Congrats to your DD and hope the kids are enjoying school. "C ya real soon"- like less than two months!!!

Tink.

Only went to Wizard Philadelphia this year. I am also going to Jerseyfestfair this weekend. You can check it out here: http://jerseyfestfair.com/
A friend of mine is coming up from Florida as a dealer, Garage Kits US.
Thinking of Going to CHILLER in October. Would still love to hit one of these Star Wars Conventions. Though I will be attending STAR WARS WEEKEND with the Mrs. as part of my 50th Birthday and Our 20th Wedding Anniversary.

Sounds like some great fun ahead.

SWW will be a great way to celebrate your 50th bday and 20th Anniversary. Will CSR be in the works for then?

I would be all in for that....the wife is a bit of a cheapskate so I am sure she will try and talk me into a value resort.  
But may have to do CSR and not tell her until we get there.  Would like to try the Wilderness Lodge someday too.
Funny thing is I have this 5 gallon spring water bottle 3/4 full of change. I am cashing that in to pay for the trip!!!!There has to be at least $2000 in there!

So Doc, I'm unfamiliar with this "Jersey Week" I've seen mentioned here and other places. What does it mean exactly? Is it like everyone from New Jersey invades WDW and it's really crowded? We went a week later last trip in 2011 and it was not really crowded at all. I also noticed that free dining is not offered the week we're there this time- you think that's because of this? Thanks!

We stayed at CSR for our 20th Anniversary. It was nice. But I'm fine with Pop too. Our next trip is off site.

LOL....No Jersey week was dubbed so by my wife and some of her friends as well as I guess other residents of NJ. There is a NJ Teachers convention every year in November where the schools have a half a day Wednesday and off Thursday and Friday. This makes a great week for a vacation at WDW as the kids don't miss much school, the weather is bearable and the crowds are waaayyyyy better that peak season. The Dining plan isnt offered as it is the Food and Wine festival. That is the only drawback to this time frame.

Sydney...where are you staying this trip?

Thanks for the response. I saw it on the DIS boards too and I didn't want to ask there and get this response Sad I'm not that big of a Disney expert so I thought I was missing something.

Free dining doesn't work for us since we're getting military discount on the resort and tickets, so that's ok. Because I was two days late in realizing the discount came out, we had a choice between All-Stars for about $200 less (DH doesn't want smaller beds, and I think the kids would hate that too- they're getting too big), CBR for about the same (but same thing- smaller beds), CSR club level for $300 more, or AKL for $600 more. We decided to take the plunge and do AKL! It is Taylor's senior year and probably last big family vacation so it'll be worth it. Plus we have some down time planned to enjoy the resort. But we plan to stop at CSR on our way back home for our last meal!

BTW- it's a surprise- the boys don't know we're staying there! They freaked out when we surprised them with CSR, they'll really freak now!

I forgot to ask before what days you will be at what parks. Maybe we'll all run into each other.

Wed. we're at Epcot - mmmmm... F&W Festival! and emh
Thur. we're at MK
Fri. it's a down day to do mini golf, resort hop (AoA is on the list), and probably DQ at night
Sat. we're at AK the MK for our last night
Sun. we'll maybe take a swim, pack up, say goodbye to the animals, and stop at CSR for lunch on the way home

What is your family's itinerary?

Got online Sunday about an hour after the flights opened. Looks like The Mrs. and I will enjoy some alone time in Disney. No Better 20th Anniversary/50th Birthday gift. Booked the flight for June. $500 total round trip for both of us.
We are planning a day at EPCOT. With the kids we have never enjoyed that leisurely stroll around the World.
And of course Disney Studios for Star Wars Weekend.
