Unofficially I’ll be calling this series WDW Wednesdays though I’m not sure how long it will last.


Yep, it’s true! We are going to WDW once again!!


I have to say Disney wasn’t even on my radar this year. We planned to take a year off, let the dust settle from Magic Bands/FP+ going into full effect and paper fastpasses going away (should be the end of this month), but with the new spring discounts and a Christmas gift towards a trip made it possible. I am SOO beyond excited.  Going to the Flower & Garden Festival is one of the things on my Disney bucket list, so getting to go sooner than I thought, is just awesome.


We considered these two moderate category resorts:


Port Orleans Riverside~

port orleans riverside Source


Coronado Springs Resort~

coronado springs



Both look so pretty!  They are both similar in terms of size, proximity to parks, etc.  We hemmed and hawed for several hours last night before picking…






We stayed at the sister resort, French Quarter, on our 2012 trip so we are hoping we will enjoy this resort as well. We know it’s quite close to Epcot where we plan to spend a lot of our time.


Now I’ve got to get working on scrapping our 3 previous trips. EEK!


Next step in planning is our dining reservations. We are trying to wait for details of the Festival before making too many plans, but I don’t want to miss out on any reservations either since we are booking less than 180 days in advance. I won’t be posting exact dates of our trip to maintain our privacy of being away but you will know when I’m back since I am hoping to blog trip reports soon afterwards.  I also plan to still blog our last fall trip. I’d like to get those details into posts so I have a good reference for the scrapbook!


Thanks for visiting!
