WDW Summer 2009!
« on: September 18, 2008, 09:29:24 PM »
YES YES YES YEEEEEESSS!!!

My dad says we're gonna book a holiday to WDW next summer, since its probably the last summer we'll be able to afford a holiday for a couple of years (at least until I'm 16, and have left school!)

But we were in the car today, and I'd just had the worst day, so I was just sitting in the back of the car, when my dad went "Oh, by the way, a brochure came today! Its from the disney company!" and I sat up and got really interested at this point. I was thinking "Paris? Paris!"

"So, I was thinking maybe we could go to WDW next year!"

I laughed so hard I started to cry! I'm so excited, but I haven't been since 2005, and I know everest was being built then, but are there any other things I should know about before we go? Any hints and tips about ques, or merchandise buying?

Hi I don't have any tips for you as I've never been to WDW, only Paris, just wanted to say that I'm really excited for you, I love to go, but I'd also love someone to pay for it for me (but that's not gonna happen lol!)

Be sure to let us all know when it's booked for  :)

Thanks! I have absolutely no idea when we'll book it, but we're already saving up like mad!

I forced myself not to buy any cookies at tuck shop today, so I'd have some extra change for my piggie bank!

Saved up about 10 already in my Tinkerbell bank! Hopefully I can get a lot more before next summer, so I'll have a lot of spending money!

Here is some tips about the parks and rides:

Disney's Animal Kingdom, Once when the park opens just enjoy the view and head towards either Asia or Dinoland USA where it is less busier as everybody goes on the Safari first thing.

Disney's Hollywood Studios, Not much to do but make sure you'd make up the time by serching for characters around the hat and watching shows.

Magic Kingdom: Avoid spending too much time at Tomorrowland, There is thousands of stuff that is really enjoyable but very long queues and durations.

Epcot: Spend most of the day around World Showcase so to look around or take a boat on the lake, When me and my family did this it took us 4 hours to walk all the way round and even eating, shopping and once more, Characters!

Restaurants to eat at:

Magic Kingdom:
Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe
Pinocchio Villiage Haus
The Crystal Palace

Epcot:
Eletric Umbrella
Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room
Liberty Inn

Disney's Hollywood Studios:
ABC Commissary
Starring Rolls Cafe
Hollywood & Vine

Disney's Animal Kingdom:
Rainforest Cafe
Tusker House Restaurant
Restaurantosaurous

And almost everywhere you look there could be a Character or a Hidden Mickey so buy the Hidden Mickey book to find the Hidden Mickeys, They are even in the Hotel sceneries.
