    Does the timing of this event have anything to do with Dapper Days scheduled for September 8th at DHS and the Boardwalk??

    See you all there!! I’m entering this belly dancing contest… but only BEFORE I eat my body weight in baklava. That could get gross with a baklava belly.

    Just signed on for a subscription a few minutes ago in anticipation of our September trip! Hope to see you guys on Friday!

    Although Lines is telling me that Epcot is “a Park to Avoid” that day. Hmm, is this a trap?

      Haha, good point. It’s a test to see how many people actually follow the park recommendations 😉

        Yes, good point. It was a test…and you passed. However, we are still going to Epcot 🙂

        One thing we are very interested in is people’s opinion on what defines the size of a “crowd”. Early September in one of the best times of the year to visit. We’ll see how the crowds at Epcot measure up while we are there.

        September after Labor Day has always been our favo(u)rite time to go. It’s still plenty warm (I mean, it’s still Summer until the 21st), so we can make full use of the pools and water parks, and the daily deluge of rain seems to clear the parks out for a golden hour or two, allowing us to virtually walk onto rides. Come prepared for the weather, I say!

        Looking forward to meeting everyone. Now to get an ADR at Epcot for Friday night; San Angel Inn and Tutto Italia are already slammed for dinner hours! Yikes!

    Hi, on your touring plan for Sept 7 EPCOT is the park to avoid. I planned to spend the day at Animal Kingdom because of your recommendation. However, I did purchase park hopper tickets for the first time for our September trip, so count me and my grandson in! We will hop over for 4pm. See you all there!!

    Our plan has us in DHS that day, but I’ll try to free an hour to visit the makers of my favorite touring plans!

    Okay, Fellow Touring Plan Pals –

    Dinner reservations that night at Chefs De France: 5:40 or 8:00 pm? These are my current choices. Which would be more conducive to hanging out with everyone?

      Whichever you like Ken, we’ll be there for a while before and after the meet I am sure, stop by anytime.

      Hi Laura, I will be there from Sept 1-8 so perhaps we will have another opportunity to meet. We usually try to post our location on twitter, follow us @touringplans if you don’t already.

    I am both thrilled and afraid to say I will be attending. I will be fresh off of a plane and no doubt cranky and in need of one of Fred’s special hugs (which he gives to all that ask).

    See you all there!
