Is it too late to book your trip to Disney? 

As you all know, if you have been listening to our weekly radio show / podcast, Marie is visiting Mickey right now with her family.  I’m sure she’ll have lots to report on her return.  What I do know is she booked her trip 2 weeks out and got a really great deal on  Shades of Green is always a great start too if you are wanting something not too expensive and on the resort.

If you are thinking about Disney World, here is a some great info I rec’d via email recently:

Note:  We visited the Disney All-Star Sports resort a couple of years ago.  The husband left for sea and two days later we left for 4 days at Disney.  Yes, without him.  It was great because he would have NEVER picked such a kid friendly place.  He prefers room service at 1130pm (or later) and the amenties of a fancier hotel.  My son LOVED the huge football field that we had to walk down every morning on the way to the parks.  The pool was in a “baseball field” with HUGE baseball bats against the buildings.  I think there is a time and place for a fancier hotel at Disney if you so desire, which we did when the husband came home….(being stationed just a few hours from Disney World helped)….however, for the kids when they are still at that “magical” age…..I highly recommend All-Star Sports.  I haven’t stayed at any of the other value resorts so I can’t speak for those, but I’m thinking they are just as cool for the kids.
