somebody stop me.....
« on: April 20, 2016, 11:31:07 AM »
....from booking another trip in December.

I'm off to DLP in 11 days and I'm going to WDW next year, but for some reason I woke up this morning thinking I really want to do Disney at Christmas again.

My DS starts school next year, so this will be the last year I can go out of school holiday time.  His birthday is in December and I've just priced it up and can get 5 days at the Cheyenne for 291 and separate flights with easyjet for just over 100! 

I'm supposed to be saving for WDW.....so I really shouldn't ....but I really want to!

Do it! We went last Christmas and are going again this year. It's meant that we've had to do a bit of scrimping and saving (no more eating out or takeaways for us), but we've booked and I can't wait!

Nothing we say can really change your mind.
Can I hijack this thread to ask why you chose the Caribbean Resort for next year and what you thought of the Grand Floridian?

Of course!  I could only really afford a moderate this trip and really liked the look of CBR.  Plus my son loves pirates and the pool theming looks great.   I was originally looking at a pirate room but everyone said that they are a long way out so not to.

The Grand Floridian was amazing.  It is a stunning resort and I couldn't fault it.  I'm not sure I would stay there again however.   I'd love to try wilderness lodge or Polynesian if spending that sort of money again.

Yeah, the Caribbean Beach is a huge resort. I'm thinking of going to WDW in 2018 and Grand Floridian is on my short list haha

Do it!

We went 3 times in the year leading up to our daughter starting school.  Now we can only go once every 2 or 3 years with the increased costs of school holidays time only.

Ah we won't be staying onsite, we find WDW's DAS is a bit of a nightmare for us so will probably only be visiting each park for one day each! I don't think I actually could choose a place to stay if we did do onsite though - I loved the look of the beachy area that was near the Studios (I think? or Epcot, my memory is shocking)
