    Getting more and more into the history and secrets of the parks! First visit was in the 1980's as a kid.

    Didn't return until last March....then again about a month ago!

    Hi Sandra....I am in Ohio.

    I am beginning to plan a grand gathering for 2013 or 2014! If 9 people count as a grand gathering.....

    Any hints?

    Thanks

    Gosh, that is forward thinking :yes:

    I had an enquiry for 2012 and thought that was a long time ahead but it's never too early to start planning.

    LOL! Well.....2 couples are experienced, 1 first timer. Right now, there are 2 new-born kids in the mix as well, so we're thinking by the time they are 3 or 4, they will be ready to go.

    Plus, it gives us time to build up the free disney dollars!

    Oh I see.

    Yes, it will be a nice time for them and they'll get much more from the trip if they are a bit bigger.

    Enjoy your planning and ask away, I'm not great at knowing all the Disney stuff but there are lots of people here who know loads

    Thanks! I am accumulating a lot of information, but anyone with grand gathering experience would be helpful!

    Wow, a grand gathering! That's awesome! I wish I could help, but my biggest party involved 3 people. All adults. I think it's definitely good to plan ahead. :D

    Oh and Welcome!

    3 and 9 are way different, that definitely means planning your meals, and having some sort of organization to the visit. Have you been delegated to plan everything?

    Planning is why I am on it! I planned out our last 2 trips and both went well. I am going to start shooting ideas and working out discounts on resorts, sending food ahead, fridge swaps, etc.
