    Hi, I'm from northern Canada and haven't been to DW in 17 years. I had always told myself that when I had kids I would take them. I have 2 girls(8&4) and a boy(2). I also had a weak moment and invited my twin nephews(10) to come along. So my husband and I are packing all of us in the family van and driving 36 hours! Crazy? Yes! We are spending Aug 1 to the 6 at the parks. We are staying in a condo offsight. I'm super excited and can't wait. National Lampoon's Disney Vacation!

    Hi Stell and a warm
    Wow! a 36 hour drive! In a strange way I`m rather jealous, as a long driving trip in the US/Canada is one of those things I`ve always wanted to do.

    You will notice a big difference since your last visit, so you`ve found the best place here for all the latest info on WDW.

    See you around the site.

    Hi stell and welcome to Secrets.

    We have lots of Canadian guests stay at the villa and they often drive down and just stop en route in motels etc.

    I'm sure t will be the first of many trips for you.

    We'll be there at the same time as you :-)

    Enjoy planning your vacation and being part of the Secrets family

    Thanks for your kind words everyone! This is a great forum and I have been reading and learning a lot. I am looking forward to seeing the different landscape across country..I think that'll be half the fun. Anybody been to Dw this summer already? If so, how are the crowds? How is the weather?
