2013 Planning thread

Okay .... thinking of 2013. I have a cruise on the Wonder out of Miami on March 11th, but I'm leaning towards any free dining offer in early March or February. Any theories on 2013? This is your thread!

Attention ted in halifax

We are going on the fantasy march 2 2013. my last two trips to orlando ive banked vacation days and driven to bangor and portland. this may not be an option this time. My boss is planning retirement thus I am actively looking for a new job. Thus the quickist in and out is priority. I live in moncton. Have you ever seen 900 return for 2 people out of moncton going to orlando. when does air canada typically put on sales. is it predictable or just whenever. all help greatfully accepted.

2013 planning here as well

We are heading to WDW for our third trip in August 2013. This time we will stay 14 days. We are considering buying into a DVC. It would be great to get free dining during our 14 days of celebration. This is going to be our tenth anniversary and my 40th birthday extravaganza. DH has suggested deluxe dining, maybe a fireworks cruise. So excited to be planning this one.

Early March 2013

Looking to fly from Detroit early first week in March. I hope the tradition of free dining will continue. Do you think they will offer the "Great Canadian" discount? I am ready to book! Bring on the offers!! Looking for some pixie dust!

Talking 2013 planner

I have a family of 4 and we are also bringing 4 more members of our family in June 2013. I am looking for free dining around that time.

We are planning for December 2013... It is looking like it will be December 7-11. We stayed at the Polynesian in April, and we are hoping to stay at the Contemporary or Grand Floridian on our next trip. Can't hardly wait!

Wow, you guys are on the ball!
So far I've booked a week of the family timeshare outside WDW and paid the deposit for the March 14 Dream cruise. We plan on driving, unless i can get a smashing deal on air. I'm not holding my breath...
Otherwise I'm still trying to find a good deal on a quick AI trip after Christmas to get us to March break. Always planning something
