just realized i've done the rude thing and have been posting w/o an introduction.

Me: designer/producer, planning our third trip in 5 years to the kingdom. Getting pointers from you seasoned veterans. Looking at making an early november visit (but perhaps late october depending on how the fall discounts pan out) In tow will be my lovely wife of 20 years, a tween & a teen.

Welcome awesome Btw, wrt your planned WDW Fall vacation, my advice (if possible) is to stay at one of WDW resorts. They have great deals during that time of the year, it really makes it convenient (early entry into selected parks, free Disney transportation), and adds to the magic of Disney.

I would also start getting the family involved in the planning/selection of meal reservations. If there is a special event that you guys are celebrating, make a reservations at a nice restaurant to cap the occasion.

Anyways, welcome aboard and have fun with your vacation planning mickey

Welcome, Sputnik!

Fall in WDW is the BEST! How are getting the kiddos out of school without the administration being pesky? Fall Break? Or are you leaving them behind? Either way, you're gonna have soooo much fun!

We're glad you're here, and can't wait to hear more about your trip!
