JANUARY 2013, Who Else is Going?

I searched for a Feb 2013 thread and didn't find one on the DL board. If I've just missed it, please redirect me. Otherwise, here goes!

Anyone else planning on, or thinking about, visiting the happiest place on earth next February? I was trying to do an October trip, but it just won't fly for us. So I rebooked our retro rate rooms at the Hojos for January 11 - 15. I know some things will be down for the holiday removal, but we're still excited. Thought about February, but I'd have to miss to school, so this works out perfectly.

What about you? When are you going? Where are you staying? What are your plans?

We are going late Feb or early March. It's tax season so we should have enough money to do everything I want. We are planning on staying at the Grand Californian, and I hope not too many rides are down!

Well, nothing definite, but I almost always go in January. It's my birthday month, prices are lower, and the parks are quiet. I love treating myself to a DLR trip for my birthday! And guess what...I leave dh and the kids at home

larina, do you fly or drive from Sac? I usually fly.

Am I the only one amused that so far the folks who have posted here about going in January are all from the Northern/Central California area (close to Sac). Interesting...

We drive down. As a family of 6 (my parents usually come, maybe just my mom, making us 5), there are just too many of us to fly. Besides, we are sort of a crazy driving family anyway, so its not that big of deal to shoot down 5. Less of an ordeal than the airport with baggage, kids, and flights to catch. If I was going alone, or making a girl's trip, I'd fly though.

In February, my oldest daughter may have a couple of friends go with us. They are 18 and older now and will be paying their own ways. We're going to catch half their room cost, but tickets and the rest is on them. This will mean taking two cars and caravaning down, which may be sort of fun for us (told you we're driving fools) in the end.

Another Sac person going in Jan LOL.

We are actually driving down on the 29th of Dec and staying at Univ and going to Grinchmas on the 30th and then will be staying at the Staybridge since there will be 6 of us AND it is the holiday week so TOO much to stay on property. But we are going to DL on NYE because it is my daughter's 13th birthday. I have ALWAYS wanted to do NYE there at least once and since it ALSO my dd's b-day we thought it would be a lot of fun.

We know it is going to be a madhouse but we plan to go and stay in the parks even if we have to go find a place to take a nap LOL. We are taking dd to Blue Bayou for dinner and I plan to order a cake so it should be a fun day.

Then we are going to Pasadena on New Year's day to see the floats. NOT going to the parade itself since we will have been up WAY late the night before and we have seen the parade twice already but thought it would be fun to go to the viewing afterwards.

Then spending the last 3 days of that week at the parks hoping to get some good park time. Know we won't get ANY on the 31st LOL.

We also plan to go the end of february because I am part of the ladies trip group so I am going for that and it also happens to be my daughter's cheer comp so we will be going one way or the other for that. So exciting!!

Another Northern California poster. (about 2 hours north of Sac) And I am so happy to have a reason to post to THIS thread. Just booked our flights so it is official. Me, 3 of my 4 girls,(25,10, and 8) and my DGD3. Staying at the DI&S. (Unless DLR runs a special I can't pass up.)

Hey all! I just got back from our best DL trip we've ever taken (Sep 1-8) at the GCH. Because of our long dates there we bought AP's so we are going again in January when there aren't blackout dates

We are going Jan 10-13 at the GCH

So jealous! I love seeing people who like Disney as much as I do. We don't get to go with your frequency (only one trip per ~2 years for us), but maybe one day I'll get to that trip rate. That is awesome.

It's been an AWESOME year

We had a 16 day trip in March/April which was so amazing. 5 days in Hawaii (we got married!- and visited Aulani which we loved), then 2 nights in VGC, 7 night Disney cruise and a night at PPH. Trip report in my sig.

Then 7 nights in GCH a couple weeks ago (our most amazing Disney trip yet- I am planning to write a trip report for that one this week!).

Our Jan trip is just to get use out of our AP's. I am bummed about only 3 nights (4 days) though. After 7 nights/8 days it will be hard to spend so little time in DL!

Our April trip is to Aulani (4 nights) and then to the North Shore where we stayed earlier this year (Ke Iki beach bungalows) for 4 nights.

We will prob try for another quick DL weekend trip in the summer too to get use of our AP's (they are unblocked the 3rd weekend in Aug...).

Yay for a year filled with so much Disney goodness! We have been blessed. We even did our family photos there a cpl weeks ago http://sarinalove.com/2012/09/disney...amily-session/
