O.k., well techinically it's my 2nd visit. It was 20+ years ago, I was 12, and had to spend one day in the park with my least favorite cousin.
I'm thinking about taking my DD (17 by then) on her first (surprise!) trip to WDW in Jan '08. I now, it's a long ways off, but I have to budget and want it to be just right. We've done DLR several times.
Is the first week in January a good time to go? We both have that week off, but I'm guessing a lot of other folks do too.
I was thinking Jan 1-6 with four or five days in the various parks and using the dining plan. Is the dining plan worth the money? At DLR we are able to eat outside the park most of the time.
Anything we absolutely must see/do? I don't remember much of anything about the whole trip to FL but Space Mountain and finding a lizard in the cooler...lol.
We are only in our room about long enough to sleep and shower so we'll go with one of the value resorts. Any recommendations on those?
If I book online through Disney, can I make payments on it like when I book for DLR?
How late can we arrive at the airport and still use DME? Does it run all the time?
What's the weather like there that time of year? We'll be coming from Phoenix.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
