Liking this idea! Is prep too young for schoolies?

I told my sister I'd do something similar with her and a few of her friends if they wanted to, but as soon as her friends found out the drinking age is 21 they said no. To quote my sister "you can get drunk off the happiness at Disneyland" but drat I just realised it'll be a few extra years before we go haha

We are booked on the Fantasy for December 7th 2013 with a week at WDW before that. We have about 8 weeks in the States planned; we had 7.5 weeks over Dec/Jan this year. We are me, DH, DD & DS who will be 13 & 12 at time of sailing. It will be our second DCL sailing.

We are all booked. DW, 2 DD and I are jetting off to DL, DW and NY in Nov and Dec 2013.

First stop Grand Cal then the Yacht Club for half our stay at WDW and the rest at WL before heading to the big apple and then home for Christmas.

Its Never Too Early to Start Planning.

Trying to organise a similar trip with DD -except will probably do NYC for a week and 4 days at DLR. (only a pipedream at this stage)

Would like to ask my sister and her DD to tag along - and maybe mother too.

Noone else knows my plans, but if I put it out there, it could happen.

Planning a surprise vacation for November 9-15, 2013 for our DS's (they think we may go in 2014). DH and I are super excited about being at Disney to see the Christmas decorations. We will stay at POR because it feels like home to us. My oldest DS told me a few weeks ago, "Mama, I really miss Disneyworld. Do you ever get homesick for it?" How could I not start planning!?!?

JnD4eva - let me know if you meant to be included here, we're an Aussie/Kiwi group and you might not have picked that up! But hey, if you can handle planning with an accent...

Looks like I might be able to squeeze in here maybe! Less than 6 months after returning from our first trip to WDW we have now started to plan returning hopefully late Dec 2013 for at least 3 weeks. So far we have me, DH, DD who will be 7 and turn 8 over there, DD who will be 3, BIL, maybe my parents too.

Bump!

I've booked the Disney side of our travel, though of course it's always open to change... plenty of time to work out the rest I'm sure!!
