Disney World Here We Come!

And I don’t know if I’ll be able to contain my excitement!!!

We made our room reservations today. Well, we made our second set of reservations today. We went a couple weeks ago to the travel agent on base and he made our first reservation at the All Star Music Resort. However, every time we had questions, we had to go back to him (we tried calling Disney and they wouldn’t talk to us the minute they saw we booked through a travel agent). The problem was all the travel agent would do is get on the phone with Disney and was literally the middle man.

So, Tony called today to see if we could re-book rooms on our own. At first she said they had nothing available (not that they didn’t have anything in the park…we were looking for a room at the military rate and they only have a limited number of rooms available at that rate). While he was on the phone, she suddenly had an opening pop up…at the Treehouse Villas! The resort doesn’t even open until 1 Jun, so we’ll be one of the first people to EVER stay there! And the best part…everyone will have their own room (there are 8 of us going…my parents, Tony & I, and the 4 younger kids, unless Ashley decides to come then we’ll have 9 people). We’ll also have full kitchen facilities and a washer/dryer in the room.

Next step is to plan where we’re going to eat so we can make our reservations. I’ve been combing the website trying to figure out exactly what/where I want to go. Anyone have any suggestions?

Three months, 28 days to go!!



  1. Yay for Disney! I’m not sure where to tell you to go since our trip to the T-Rex restaurant was a bit much for my toddler.

  2. Are you going in September so you can get free dining? Is the new resort one fo Disney’s? We’re going to try and book a trip this summer, too!

  3. Ok, so I went back and read your ticker. You’re going in June. Did you know you could get free dining the last week of August through September?

    If you haven’t taken the girls to the dining room upstairs in Cinderella’s Castle, I would highly recommend it! The food is excellent, and they do a little show with the Fairy Godmother and dancing mice, all around you in the room while you’re eating. Plus, seeing the inside of the castle is awesome.

  4. We stayed at the old tree house villas like 15 years ago, before there were kids in the mix. It was awesome, congrats on the good timing. I got no tips on the food reservations, we usually go cheap when we’re doing the Disney thing, but I think you’ve got the right idea.
