I've been perusing your messages that last few days, and you have given me some great ideas. Thanks for having these forums! Here's my question (in a roundabout way)...
I will be visiting DL Oct. 11 & 12 for my 4-year old son's very first visit. I grew up in SoCal so have been many times. This is my first time actually having to stay in a hotel (I miss being so close). In addition me and my husband, another couple going with us are celebrating anniversaries.
I am seeking advice on helping to make our visit (especially for my son) more memorable. We may look into AP's some day (I hope).
Here's what I already have planned:
-Get "First Time Visitor" button at City Hall
-See if my son can "pilot" Mark Twain
-Have dinner reservations at Blue Bayou with notice of 1st timer & anniversaries
Anything else other than trying to relax and go with the flow?
I went 2 years ago when the park was transitioning from Halloween to Christmas, and I loved Haunted Mansion (just for something different). That was the first time I had been in over 15 years (yikes!). Looking forward to this trip, I'm acting like a schoolgirl all over again. I can't wait to share this day with my son. He's going to be blow away!
Thanks again to all you Disney fanatics. You're helping me relive the magic all over again!
