Hi all, I guess I could tell you who we are for starters. We are the Queen's. (Isnt that such a great name, at least for DD and me, not so much for the boys in the family). I am Connie (mom 33), then we have Chad (DH 35) and the kids. They are Christian (11), Chase (8) and Ciara (2). As you can tell we have a thing for names that start with C.
I have planned a busy trip for us. We have the Deluxe Dining Plan so we wanted to do lots of Character Dining.
We arrive Friday Sept 4th at CSR and leave Sept 13th. My sister and her hubby are getting a room at Port Orleans for the 5,6,and 7. They only live an hour from Disney and my other sister and her stepson are going to come up and visit us also for the same time and probably stay with them.
The 5th is when our actually package starts. Here is how our trip looks so far.
Friday the 4th we arrive probably between 7 and 8 pm. We are driving from NC.
Saturday- CRT at 9:55 and then we might do a little in MK and then go and meet my 2 sisters and see what they want to do. Then we have dinner at Whispering Canyon at 7pm
Sunday- (really busy ADR day) This is our DHS day
8:15 am is Hollywood and Vine
2:05 is Sci-Fi Dine
7:35 is 50's Primetime We wanted to try them all.

Afterwards we will spend time with family and then head down to DTD
6:45 at Planet Hollywood
Tuesday Boys have a 9am Pirates League reservation in MK

My sister is going to watch the kids so DH and I can go to Narcoosee's at 8:45 and hopefully we can watch the fireworks also from dinner.

We also have MNSSHP that night. DH is prince charming, I am Cinderella, DD is Tinkerbell and DS 8 is Snakeeyes from Gi Joe and DS11 is an army guy.
Saturday This is Chase's 9th bday
8:30 is 1900 Park Fare
This is another open day.
5:35 Chef Mickey's. Most of my family lives in Lakeland (about 50 miles away). My dad and my sister and her stepson and my other sister and her hubby and maybe my other sister and her hubby will be joining us for his bday celebration.
Sunday We leave. So sad here.
This is our first actual vacation when I think about it. Most of our vacations of always been in Florida but we have always stayed with family. I have never been to AK or epcot but have been to MK lots of times and was DHS when it was MGM and even saw a taping of the mickey mouse club. My DH has never been anywhere there except to typhoon lagoon last summer. My boys have been to MK but the last time I was pregnant with DD.
That is it so far. I cant wait to go. We leave in 5 days.
I hope that you and your family have a magical time at the world

Sounds like a great trip with good planning too. The only thing I see missing is, that you're not attending Illuminations at Epcot. The day of Chase's birthday might be a good time to do it. You should finish over at the CR and Chef Mickey's by 7:15 or so and can take the monorail to the TTC and transfer there to Epcot for Illuminations. I think Illuminations is at 9 pm this time of year as the sun is started to set earlier. Might have time for a snack or just explore the World Showcase prior to the show. It's a must on any WDW trip. I go to it at leat 2-3 times on each trip annually. Good luck with the rest of the planning.
