I don't know if it's because I OVER planned last time or what but we are going in 6 months (EEK!) and I really have nothing planned.

We have basically nailed our park days down but plans on what to do within the park have me going "ho hum".

Wow - sounds hard with so many kids with different tastes! I think I'd just wing it in that case. And let everyone know (if you expect them to stay together) that everyone gets to choose some rides, so you either go on them cheerfully or you wait outside patiently.

Our last "real" trip was booked on Sunday and we left on Friday. So, no plans at all. We had a fun time, although I was a little stressed at the lack of plans. :)

I'd recommend sit-down breakfasts (especially character buffets). Breakfasts are cheaper than other meals. You can see the characters without taking time away from the parks (standing in lines). Plus, you can either schedule them early - before the parks open - or later, so it could be more of a brunch.

I hope you have fun planning as it gets closer. And don't stress too much in the meantime!

Other than which park, which day and our ADR's (we never have more than 1p/day) I don't plan much at all.

Thanks everyone!

I think it just felt so "we can't do anything until we know X" type of thing but we did find out Grandma is coming with us!

Woo Hoo!!!!

Becky,

I was just thinking about you this weekend, and here you were :)

I am glad that you aren't stressing so much.
