...and what are you doing to help keep you and your family PATIENT?
DH and I are taking advantage of the free dining plan and are going in September. We are so excited, the last time we've been to Disney was in 2005!
I had a dream about it last night. I just want September to hurry up and get here! I can't believe it's still 5 months away!:sad1:

We will be there for free dining 9/19-28. There are so many things going on over the next few months for us that I hope it will help get us through until our vacation. Oldest son will graduate from college, youngest son graduates from high school, and we are in the process of building a new home...but I still plan for our trip and live on the boards.

DH and I will be there 8/31-9/8 and I can't wait. We were just there in January but it feels like forever! Hopefully it will go by fast. We have a trip to VA beach planned for end of May and I really should be planning that but I haven't done as much planning for that trip as I have done for the Sept. trip. I just can't stop thinking about it. DH and I talk more about it than the VA trip. Just can't beat Disney!! I can't believe how obsessed I am with WDW. It kind of scares me!!

DH and I CAN'T WAIT to get there in September! Last year, our trip was sort of unexpected and we only knew about the 8 day excursion three weeks ahead of time, so there was hardly any waiting- we got really spoiled! We booked this year's trip about 3 weeks ago, and it already seems like an eternity! We just keep surfing the Dis, planning, and watching travel channel specials to get us through all the waiting! One other thing we have decided to do (maybe this makes us weird) was to write out a list of special purchases we want to make for this trip and then buy one item each week between now and then. Gives us something fun to do and still feel like time is passing along!

We are going for a girl's only trip with cousins. Sept. 23-29 Free Dining Bounce back.
I am the impatient one.
My DD9 never says much about it and DD2 can not be told, yet.

To help with the waiting, I go on the website and "pay down" my balance.
I have a plan as to how much I need to pay each week to not owe anything before we go.
I am also scheduling a very busy summer and working a few more hours each week to keep my mind busy!!!:)

I seem to be the only one excited at this point. I get my DISboards lunch hour fix every day to keep myself patient! :)

We will be there Sept 6-13th. I'm the one that needs to be patient. My DGD doesn't understand the concept of time. My DH and DD's (13 & 15) act like it's no big deal. :confused3

my DH and I arranged our September trip a few weeks ago and I have been lurking on the boards ever since. This will be my eighth trip and his 4th... He is a good sport and indulges me in my Disney addiction.

To make the wait go faster - DH has been changing the screen saver on the computer every couple of days with pics from previous trips. The pics continue to bring back the memories and good feeling of vacation. :goodvibes

:cool1: I can feel your excitement! Last year my dd, then 9, thought we were going to Virginia. The expression on her face when she found out just before boarding our plane that we were headed for Disney was priceless! Dopey me forgot to have my camera ready:sad2: Wishing you and your family a magical time!!:dance3:

We will be there from Aug. 24th through Sept. 2nd. We took the boys last year during spring break and they loved it. We had so much fun that they asked to go again and with the free dining offer I could not pass it up.

We are going 9/9 through 9/16 and we can't wait either! We go every year at this time. The heat is bad, but the price is good (especially with free dining) and the crowds are thinner so it's worth it. Right now we are planning our days and getting excited. One month before we leave we have a "countdown party" and the kids play Disney games and make big countdown calendars. They mark of the days until the big day arrives and it's time to go. It helps make the last month pass a little quicker. We are also looking for pins on Ebay (each child gets to pick three to start with) so they will be ready to trade when we get there! :)

Free dining Aug 27- Sept 1st. The best part is DD doent know. Dh kept saying NO to disney this year, he didnt want to go. So I planned November without him. I was booking all the details and he said too bad we couldnt go this summer. I told him about free dining and we booked it in under 10 min from conversation to putting the deposit down.

So DD will be so excited!!!!!

We are going Sept 13-20 with free dinning. We are doing a grandgathering with our very bestest friends and their children who have never been to Disney. They have charged me with planning everything because they don't have any idea what they want to do or where to eat...so of course I have planned the ultimate experience with BBB and Character Dinning! FUN FUN FUN

We will have 6 children between the families and to break the news we had a "planning" party where the kids got to help me choose some of the resturants and activities. Since then we have started a treasure box and when one of them thinks of something they want, or I see it on sale at the Dis store online, we grab it up and put it in the box. I have told all the children that they will get a "goodie" bag the day we leave out for the trip.

Also, twice a month I host a "work' day in which the kiddos can pick up rocks, pull weeds and help with other household chores to earn Dis Dollars for their own Dis Wallet!

Finally, like the pp mentioned, we are having a kick off party the first last weekend in August to make final plans and such. I have fun Disney inspired activities that I want to do with them. This is a surprise though so...shhhhhh....

Happy Planning...131 days to go:banana:

It's going to be hot - stay hydrated. It makes a huge difference. Don't forget all CS locations will give you a big cup of ice water, no charge. This is colder and tastes better than the (blech) bubblers. Also a misting bottle (with or without a fan) can't be beat.
