We are finally planning our Aug 2010 vacation, haven't booked it yet, still waiting for fiance to get the OK from his boss. We are planning on Aug 20-27 @ CBR (or WL, I can't decided!!!!!!) I am so super excited though because I got a free dining pin in my e-mail! I have to book before Feb 2nd though.
So some questions and advice is needed...
This will be our first time driving to the world from NJ. We are planning on leaving early on the 19th (7am). We have a 5 yr old DD so I imagine potty stops and stops to stretch are going to be frequent. I am hoping to arrive in WDW @ around check in time, so we still have time on the 20th to visit a park, is this possible time wise? We are planning a stay overnite somewhere.
Any tips on how to keep a 5 yr old happy in the car would be appreciated :)
Not sure which route we will be taking, but how do I find a good place to stay and nice rest areas?
I have never used the new on line ADR system, do you find it is easier to get ADRS through that? Can I try and make my ADRs @ midnight @ 180 days out or do I still have to wait til 6am when the phone lines open? Also, if you DON'T Get the ADRs you want, do you find you can get ADRs on the computer if you visit the site often?
And finally, what can I expect in Aug? I know the heat and humidity are going to be insane, but what about crowds? What are wait times like?
O, and hurricanes, has anyone been in WDW during a hurricane? We were there last May and the rain was crazy, just rained for days non stop and it was cold (huge fluke, but of course is happened while we were there haha, we just put on our ponchos though and kept going) but we figured if we could handle that we could handle AUg rains. What do you think?
ANY advice is appreciated!
