Fall (September - November) 2003 WDW Trip Reports


Kris Jones - October 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Personal car
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Standard rooms
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookies
  • Comments: This trip for Kris and family turned out to be more than they ever expected. More Disney World, more fun, more important to their family. It is a relatively brief report for the length of stay, but full of the energy of the first time visitors.

Kim Howe - October 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Car rental
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Timeshare suite
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: Kim and Paula had such a great time on their trip last year, that they just had to do it again. Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and the Food & Wine Festival top the events of this trip.

Sheri Niklewski - September 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Personal car
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Standard
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: Making her fourth trip of the year, this time it is just Sheri and her husband. Money's a bit tighter and they are without annual passes for the first time in years. The plan, though, is to just enjoy every minute, even if a tropical storm makes things a bit unpredictable. As a reward for reading all the way through, though, you get a bit of a central Florida nature lesson.

Rob Patterson - October 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Personal car
  • Resort: BWRV
  • Accommodations: 1 BR Villa
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent, DVC member
  • Comments: Wanting a free sandwich results in Rob and Tara buying into the Disney Vacation Club last year, and this is their first trip using their own points. While there were some hiccups it was a great trip. Included is information about the Food & Wine festival.

Cathy Sowa - October 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: PORR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Child, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent
  • Comments: Cathy and her "travel partner" sister have a grand time making their third Disney World trip together. This time around they have quite a few highlights as they attended Mickey's Not So Scary Holloween Party, the Food and Wine Festival, made it to the hot seat, and took the Backstage Magic Tour.

Robin Goble - November 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: CR, PR, BCR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room, Concierge
  • Ages Represented in Group: Child, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Frequent, Veteran
  • Comments: With her nephew, Michael, getting older, Robin isn't sure how long these November trips to Disney World can continue, but while they can they'll have great times.

Mark L. Fendrick - November 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Personal Car
  • Resort: ASMuR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: Mark is back with his first trip report in a while. He and his family continue making this their traditional time to visit Walt Disney World and find plenty of things to keep them busy, a new ride, a new show, and the Super Soap Weekend.

Janice O'Hanley - September 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: Offsite
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group:Infrequent, Veteran
  • Comments: Though this is published after her last report, this trip was before the one with her sister in October. A long time in the making, this trip was a chance for Janice and her daughter to experience Disney World with Janice's oldest friend and her family.

Janice O'Hanley - October 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: CBR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group:Infrequent, Veteran
  • Comments: It has been a long time since Janice and her sister had gone on a trip together and they figured it was time. Using some of her cast member benefits put a trip to Disney World within reach of the two and their oldest daughters. There was some frustration when the FCC decided that the air was too crowded with planes, but as always (almost), it was a wonderful trip in the end.

Sue Holland - November 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Personal Car
  • Resort: BCR/Magic
  • Accommodations: Standard Room (BCR), Disney Wonder
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group:Veteran, DVC Member
  • Disney Cruise Experience Represented in Group: Frequent
  • Comments: A long trip (and an epic trip report) for Sue this time. A seven night cruise on the Magic with four nights at Walt Disney World to start. A plan like that is a pretty good way to turn 45.

Dana Avery October 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Personal car
  • Resort: CSR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent
  • Comments: One of the benefits of home schooling is that you don't have to wait for one of the official holidays to go on vacation. In her first trip report, Dana recounts taking her 8-year-old daughter to Disney World for the second time -- and learns that 8 really is a great age for such a trip.

Robin Black October 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Personal Car
  • Resort: CR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent
  • Comments: Their last trip was so much fun that Robin and her mom (two Disneyland regulars) just had to go back for their second trip in a year. Disney magic prevails even when day-to-day life isn't going all that great.

Kim Gouge September/October 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Shuttle
  • Resort: ASSR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Elementary, Teen, Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Rookie, Infrequent
  • Comments: For her first trip in four years, Kim planned everything for six people from two families. She learned some lessons (3:30 is awfully early to get up for a plane) and some values (meal vouchers off eBay aren't) and they all had a great time.

Robin Goble September 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, Rental Car
  • Resort: ASMoR
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Veteran
  • Comments: In her trip report from last October, Robin mentioned that she started the expensive habit of twice-a-year visits to Disney World in 2000. So, rather than wait for her scheduled November trip, she decided to also add a third trip this year in September. But this time she was going to be on a budget. See if she kept to it inside.

Steve Simmons September 2003

  • Time of Year: Fall
  • Travel Method: Plane, shuttle
  • Resort: AKL
  • Accommodations: Standard Room
  • Ages Represented in Group: Adult
  • WDW Experience Represented in Group: Infrequent, Veteran
  • Comments: Steve, his wife, and a friend decided to pull out all the stops for this trip. So, for them it was concierge level at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Lots of fun was had and there is plenty of good information here about some of the back stage tours.
