Took advantage of AP room discount for 7/5 thru 7/14 family trip to Caribbean Beach, super excited for family to experience Galaxy's Edge and Skyliner especially Rise of the Resistance. My wife was with me in Oct to celebrate our 20th anniversary so she experienced GE and Skyliner but not when I went solo in Dec for a few days to experience RotR and my kids haven't experience any of those yet. Not sure who is more excited , me or my 3 kids!
Added to roll call!

I am going to miss CBR this trip, it's turned into our favorite resort at this point.

    Anyone happen to know around what time happily ever after started in the past summers?

    Add us to July. 21st-30th AKL Jambo. We’ve gone twice before in the last week of August (2011 and 2013) so not worried about the heat but am worried a bit about crowds in July. I’m a teacher too so it limits the options. First trip for us without the four kids, who aren’t really kids anymore since the youngest is 18. We‘re celebrating our 30th anniversary as well.

    We're going July 1 - 15 All Star sports. We've been several times in July, so know what to expect when it comes to heat and crowds. We also do the waterparks, which we love!

    Pre-cruise ADRs done. Still waiting for Space 220 and potentially Woody's Roundup. Booked 2 Beaches & Cream, Skipper Canteen, Rose & Crown, and Boma. One B&C and probably R&C will go for 220 and Woody's. Yesterday's Smugglers Run FP announcement threw a monkey wrench in March's planning but helps July a lot!

    Changed our plans yet again! This should definitely be the last time since we booked our flights as well. If you wouldn't mind updating the roll call we will now be at the Polynesian July 9th-15th!

    Great choices - though I haven't tried Beaches and Cream yet. Do they have larger tables there? Looking to book my party of 7 and saw nothing, not sure if it is because they can't accommodate a larger party at one table.

    I am definitely curious about Woody and Space220. We have some wiggle room in our plans so if either menu is appealing and prices not too scary we might try them.


    After reading about the Pirate League makeover's closing in late July I started reading more about them and am thinking off signing my youngest up for the mermaid package. We never did the whole BBB thing because my girls never liked getting their hair done. But a makeover sounds fun and my daughter liked the mermaid pictures I showed her so we might be adding that on. But I also don't love the thought of spending $50 on makeup and then she sweats it off immediately.....

    I guess it’s time to officially add us to the roll call! Me and the gf will be back at the Poly July 2-5 for a quick holiday weekend trip to enjoy the festivities. Our big blowout CL trip is in May but the AP discount was too tempting. She thinks I’m going on another solo trip, but I’ll be surprising her with an AP upgrade on the May trip! The worst part will be keeping it to myself.

    I'm home from our January girl's trip. We had SUCH a good time and I was able to try some new things like the Skyliner, Rise of the Resistance, and tried quite a few new to me restaurants.

    Today I need to keep catching up on laundry and messes around here, but tonight I will go through and update roll call.
    We went down on the 17th as you were coming home :goodvibes I hope you had warmer weather than we did (I think you did) because even as New Yorkers we froze our butts off lol. Had on 4 shirts, 2 pairs of socks, gloves and hats!!! I'd done the skyliner before but DH tried it for the first time. We did a new to us restaurant, one we hadn't done in years and some old favorites!
    We have Beaches and Cream booked for the 3rd too! We're celebrating Alex's birthday on this trip and he requested it (along with Crystal Palace).
    Cool! What time? I don't even remember what time ours is offhand lol
    ust in time for me to change things again! 😂 On the last day of free dining I found a reservation for BWV, so I grabbed it. Moved our dates by one day- now 6/27-7/7. And I found BC open too, so it's now a BWV (6/27-7/2)/BC (7/2-7/7) split
    Man you leave BWV right before we check in :( but we're still both in the BW area yay!!!
    So frustrated trying to plan. 180 days is this weekend. Park hours are showing only for the first 4 days of our trip.
    Have you looked at Kenny the Pirates site? He has the hours out for the whole month I believe

    Ours is for 6:15. Im not sure if we'll keep it, though. We're talking about possibly doing the MK fireworks dessert party on 7/3 and seeing Epcot's fireworks on 7/4 since MK does theirs for 2 nights. In that case we would reschedule B&C, as we wouldn't want to eat a bunch of ice cream then go to a dessert party!

    Of course! But it should still be pretty easy to cross paths since we're staying in the area. Can't wait!!

    Honestly not sure we're keeping it either lol. Chris really wants Narcoossee's that night! Good idea about the fireworks; we saw the MK ones from Narcoossee's on the 3rd last year and then left MK around 8 on the 4th to go see the Epcot ones and we loved those so much more! Considering the dessert party on the 4th but I don't know if I'll be sad to miss the Epcot show.

    I know it's about time :cheer2:

    See, so you should rearrange and join us at MK on the 3rd and Epcot on the 4th.:P

    We've only done Beaches & Cream with groups of 4-6, but I'd think the new expanded restaurant would have room for 7. I usually just book 4+3 or whatever I need and ask when we arrive if they can seat us near each other. Since we don't know how our HS and Epcot days are going to look with the new rides, I figured it was easy to head to B&C for lunch from either park.
