Hi everyone -
I used this board back in 2008 when we planned our first Disney trip with our son, and everyone was really helpful. He was only 8 months old at the time, so things were pretty easy...
Now, he's almost 3, and we also have an almost-3 month old. We'd like to get to Disney before he turns 3 in late August (23rd to be exact), and make sure we don't have to buy him a ticket/meals etc...but from what I've seen just lurking about, a lot has changed!! (And I've done Disney 7 times now!)
What are ADRs? Advance Dining Res? Also, can someone explain the dining plan? We got it for ourselves last time - but it included the 1 sit down/1 counter/1 snack for the two of us since the baby didn't eat anything yet. I remember thinking at the time that I didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for pizza and pasta, but he's a picky eater.
Recommendations for planning? We'll be driving as well, from Wisconsin. I'm hoping to stay at a Value resort unless someone's got a better suggestion, and we may/may not get the dining plan. We'll also be doing park hoppers, obviously.
What's the weather like in August? I know it will be hot...
How are the crowds? Is there anything else someone can think to suggest? Has anyone made such a long drive with two kids? We'll be stopping every 2 or so hours to nurse the baby and stretch legs, go potty, etc. I am planning on buying a portable DVD player as well for the 2 year old...
