Hi all, first post on this forum. I will be at TDR for 3 1/2 days with my DS13 in mid-November after a business trip in China. That works out nicely that we will already be time zone adjusted.
I am a lurker and sometimes poster on the DLR and WDW forums here. DLR is my home resort (born and grew up in SoCal). I go to DLR about once a year with my family and we usually stay a few days. Have been to DLR many times over the years.
I have been to WDW twice (2006, 2008) and DLRP once (2007). This will be my second trip to Asia and first to TDR. I have been lurking here for a few weeks and reading posts from recent months.
I bought Kevin Yee's TDR book and decided my best bet was a TDR official hotel. The business trip just came up two weeks ago and I was short of time and unfortunately going to TDR over a holiday period in Japan so rooms were hard to find and pricey. I did get a room at the Sunroute Plaza at a higher rate than I would like. But I was glad to have any room at all. First choice would have been Hilton or Sheraton but they were booked even at the very high rates.
All I have at this point are flight and hotel reservations. Kevin Yee recommended the "limousine" service from Narita and I am planning to do that. No restaurant reservations yet. Planning to buy park tix at the hotel upon arrival. Based on what I have read I think we will spend two full days at TDS and 1 1/2 at TDL.
In any case, I am an avid Disney forum reader and will be glad to share my pre-trip and post trip perspectives and read yours as well. Some dialog would make this trip more fun. Feel free to share any and all thoughts and advice!
