Awesome, I booked at SSR for Dec 5th. - 9th, When do you think they will release MVMCP dates?
Yes! Poly seems perfect for that vacation tropical feel. For me, Contemporary feels like home and we LP. The theme park view. Definitely another trip so you can experience that!

I think the MVMCP tickets typically go on sale sometime in May or June.
Thursday November 29th- Arrival Day
Work and school for 1/2 day most likely. Southwest has a non stop that leaves around 3:30 and arrives in Orlando around 6:00. I'm hoping this gives enough time for an O'hana ADR for around 8:00-8:30. I'd love input on if this is doable or not. I feel like it is but I'm not sure.
Dinner - O'hana 8:00 pm
No Park Day
Friday November 30th-
This should be a MVMCP day so that is in the plans. I have park tickets for this day right now but I might drop down to only 3 days of park tickets and just wait to head to MK at 4:00 and relax at the resort for this day. If its nice we might try to reserve one of the cabanas at the Poly Oasis pool. Originally I thought of an early BOG breakfast and in the park for a couple hours then resting until dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern. But now I'm not sure, I don't want to be tired and not enjoy the party. We aren't big on waiting in lines for character meets so won't wait in the crazy Jack Skellington or Seven Dwarfs lines so that isn't an issue.

Southwest has a departing flight at 5:55 right now hopefully the schedule remains the same for early December. If that works we will need to be back at Poly by 1:30 - 2:00 for Not so Magical Express. We should be home by 8:00 pmish. And, back to work and school by Tuesday.
I've never taken my son out of school for a vacation, except his Kindergarten year he missed the last 3 days of school because of make up snow days and we already had a cruise. He's a good student so I'm not too worried about it.
Since you’re staying at Poly and you do online check in, it seems doable to me as long as there’s no delays on flight. How do you know the schedule for southwest? I’ve tried looking up past flights from previous year but no luck.
I always fly Southwest so I'm just guessing based on what flight schedules were for December this year and the flights I normally take.
Late to the party, but we had ZERO problems with transportation from AKL in october, there were more busses for there then when we went to CSR the second half of the trip. We also rented DVC points and it was amazing, so easy and so much cheaper! I bet he will love waking up and seeing animals outside the windows! Truly my most favorite resort!
AND....now that i caught up see you are at the Poly and that's an amazing resort too so forget above love your plan list too!
I was going through some pictures today and came across some of our last December trip, 7 years ago! It just makes me even more excited!!!!
I thought I'd share a few of my favorites.
In planning news I talked to my DS last night about if he'd rather do the Rivers of Light Dinning Package and see Rivers of Light or if he'd rather leave AK early and go to Hoop Dee Doo Review. We haven't done either. I was kind of hoping he'd pick Hoop Dee Doo but I'll let him pick because as of right now our AK day will be his actual Birthday. He picked Rivers of Light darn it!
On another planning note, has anyone ever done one of the in room celebrations? I'm thinking of doing that for DSs birthday.
I didn’t do the in room celebrations BUT I did do a special cake order that was delivered to restaurant at same resort we were staying at! It came out awesome! Yay for all the birthdays while y’all are at Wdw
If you haven't seen ROL its worth it, I really liked it, my DH not so much. Now the real question is Tusker house or is he "adult" enough for Tiffins?
I was leaning toward Tusker House we've never had dinner there. He is a very adventurous eater so maybe I should check out the menu for Tiffins. Thanks!
