Brand New to this Site

So glad I found this site!!! It's getting me so excited for our trip!!!

Will be traveling to Disney World in May with my DH and my 2 college DDs. Last time we visited was 2001 and the DDs were 6 & 9 years old so this visit will be TOTALLY different!!!! Don't think they will be filling their autograph books this time!!!

Looking forward to this vacation and experiencing the parks with adults!

welcome DH and I are also going in May! WDW has lots of things going on then, Flower & Garden, Star Wars and......24 hours of Magic to celebrate my birthday rolling Can't wait to hear more about your upcoming trip. Going to the bubble with your adult children is totally different from going with your childish children. laugh

Welcome Marbooks! Hello from getting-sunnier-by-the-day-Pennsylvania! Where are you from?

Adult trips to WDW are amazing. I've only ever done a trip with children when I WAS the child and I have way more fun now than I ever could have dreamed of then. I hope that you and your family will have a wonderful time together in May, too!

Thanks for all the kind greetings!!! After 20 years in Pennsylvania we headed south & after a brief stop in North Carolina we now call Tennessee home....well most of us do- my youngest DD attends college in North Carolina.

We will be at WDW for the last week of the Flower & Garden Festival and can't wait!!!!!

Hi and welcome! How fun, I'm so excited for you guys! And I can't wait to hear how different it is for you traveling with adult kids vs. kid kids! I went a bunch of times as a child and have taken two adult only trips now and it is a completely different experience. Now our next trip I'm taking my DD for her first time! biggrin

Another hello and welcome from Pennsylvania! Hope you enjoy your trip in May, but I see absolutely no reason why your DDs can't fill up an autograph book this trip. laugh I look forward to reading your trip report.

Newbie here-
Headed to WDW April 8th, last minute decision- First time trip for three grandkids. ( 9,7,5)

Too late for the things like Breakfast at Royal Table- granddaughters would have loved that !
Best I could reserve is Crystal Palace character lunch...

Staying at Disney Caribbean Beach Resort.... two full days at Magic Kingdom, one at CBR swimming, etc...

Ant tips for first timers at MK ?

welcome welcome welcome

don't rule out your daughters filling up autograph books as at the age of 25 I got another autograph book (I was 6 the last time) and I'm on a mission to fill it once again!!!!

looking forward to hearing about your trip!

Welcome!

Some of us never outgrow our meet and greets with autographs! Smile There are some amazing tips on the forums about meeting the characters along with a thread on "best character interactions"

Any new adventures in the works or Old favorites on your must do list?

While my oldest daughter hasn't been to WDW in 6 years (she got married 6 years ago), my middle and youngest daughters (22 and 19 yrs old) will still grab autographs. They will always be children at WDW.

welcome From sunny Florida beach .

Ditto on the autograph books, my DD are a little older than yours and they still get autographs when the lines are small.

Cheers

welcome from North Carolina!! We are going in May too. In fact, just 4 more days we will be there. Our DD went to college in NC too. She is now married and just returned from honeymoon trip in WDW. We took her several times with us as an adult. Totally different kind of trip with her not being a little girl. It was fun and different. biggrin
