    Hi, we sooo love you Joel! HELP! We started our vacation as 4, now we are up to 8.. Only 2 kids, Boys 9 & 5, now the rest my inlaws (Peeps & Bro w/ wife).. What to do together? BTW, everyone in different resorts & diff. meal plans. Sept 1-7, U

    Hi, Teresa! Thanks for the love shower. 

    They say good fences make good neighbors, right? When vacationing, different resorts make for better inlaws. Am I right or am I right?!

    Two years ago, we happened to converge on Disney World at the same time as my inlaws. Staying at different resorts was pretty awesome. It allowed us to enjoy our vacation as an intimate family and plan get togethers with the inlaws on our own terms. We dined together about every other day and then did a few attractions together before and after said meal. On the off days, if the inlaws were going to be in the same park as us or wanted to follow my awesome park touring schedule (it was pretty awesome,) then they were welcome to come along. If they had somewhere else to be, well, who was I to hold them back?

    When it comes to redeeming different dining plans / meal credits, cast members can pull it off in their sleep. Let dining plan coordination be the least of your worries. Spend more time worrying about how to land good coffee once on property. For reals.
