Going to Florida for 2 weeks, so excited I can hardly wait :bounce:

Post by maggie on Sat Jul 23, 2011 3:41 pm

My dad just called this morning and asked me to get 3 tickets to Jacksonville Florida to see them, then we'll go to Disney and Tampa so we can see my mother in law and some of my husband's family.
I am sooooo happy, the kids are sooo happy! I just had to share.

BTW who lives in Florida, I know Linda is in Jacksonville but I remember her being in a camp ground or something like that.

I thought your hubby was in Canarias. Question I'm soooo jealous of your trip to Disney. We went to Disneyland Paris 3 years ago and I enjoyed like a child. ¿Me escondes en tu maleta? Razz

I'm all the way down in Naples, Florida, so I don't think we'll get the chance to see you. Have fun, though. For once it's cooler here than everywhere else.

I'm in Orlando, too! Have fun on your trip!

It's hot here, not as hot as it's been up in your area - still, the 90s is hot no matter where you are from, so bring your water bottles to Disney or you will be hating life.

hahaha, when I think of mouse I think of all the mouse traps lol You mean the BIG MOUSE???
btw, we want to stay in one of the Disney hotels, do you get transportation the any of the parks, how does that work? It will be a lot easier to stay on site because my dad is not going to be able to walk too much and if he wants to go back to the room before we do he can and we can go later. Still not sure how the whole thing works.

Hahaha Angela, I have 2 suitcases, I bet you could fit Smile Muy impresionada con tu espanol! cyclops

LOL LInda, that's what I meant but I thought you were in another city.

Thanks Sunrise! It's been so hot here in CT so it won't take long to adjust to FL climate.

There is bus transportation from all the on-site hotels to pretty much anywhere you want to go on property. If you want to stay on-site you need to start calling resorts NOW. This is peak season and they fill up fast.

Also you might consider renting a wheelchair for your dad. There is a LOT of walking when you are in the parks. You can rent a chair in the same area they do stroller rental, right at the front gates of each park.

Yes! Get him a wheel chair! Itill be so helpful! The parks are huge, and even healthy people get tired. Definately stay at one of the disney hotels. When we go, we park the car when we arrive and never look at it until it's time to pack up. The disney transports are great. . .they have so many different buses they go wherever. Call quickly, disney fills up fast any time school is out. Plus do your best to get dinner reservations ahead of time, they fill up wicked quick too. I'm so jealous! I wish we were going. . .have a blast for all of us.

Thanks for the info on the resorts, we have been there many times but never stayed on-site. I think the bus deal is awesome.

I was looking at the prices and WOW it is soooo expensive but if that includes the parks then that's a good deal. Do they have a fridge and stove, that is a must for us since Amanda is lactose intolerant and my dad needs to follow a specific diet.

Thank you so much for all the tips, information and well wishes, I really appreciate it!

SOME of the hotel packages include Lenght of Stay passes which include tickets, make sure you find out when you book if park admission is included. Often, if you add in park admission and one of the meal plans, it ends up being cheaper than just buying the park tickets at the gate.

My PERSONAL feeling is, the lower end resorts and the high end resorts are almost the same as far as the ROOM is concerned. So looking at All Star or Carribean Beach resorts can be better deal than the resorts that are right next to a park. They all have buses that run to all the other areas of property.

Thank you so much, I'll have to check that one out.
So how does the meal plan work? you get a certain amount or dishes from the restaurant you can order?
