2013 Roll Call

So.....I thought it might be fun to have one thread for all of us planning 2013 trips . A place where everyone can see when their fellow Canadian Disers are making their trips to Orlando, where they are staying, etc.

So........2013 planners, what are youR dates?

(and yes, I should have posted this in January for all those who made the pilgrimage in the past couple of months . If you did, feel free to post your 2013 travel dates anyway, so we'll all know you've been and returned!)

I'll start us off :

Friday, August 23rd to Saturday, August 31st

Staying at Sheraton Vistana Resort (first time ) in a two bedroom, two bathroom villa.

Doing both Disney waterparks, a trip to Cocoa Beach, Downtown Disney, Showcase of Citrus, and a whole lotta shopping. I have also promised the boys at least two "resort days" to enjoy all the amenities at SVR and get some much-needed relaxing in.

Flying from Syracuse, NY via Jetblue.

Fingers crossed for no hurricanes .

We're in WDW from August 20 to 31, 2013. We arrive in Florida a few days earlier to check out Cocoa Beach and Islands of Adventure.

We're coming from Victoria, British Columbia. It's a long way, so this will probably be our only Florida trip while my daughter is young.

We will fly out of Seattle, but I have yet to buy tickets.

We have rented DVC points to do a slightly kooky split stay: Animal Kingdom Villas (Jambo), then Villas at Wilderness Lodge, then Beach Club Villas. It's a tour!

Tim

We're driving down in April and will visit/stay with friends in Panama City, St. Augustine (FABULOUS outlet mall there!!), and Tampa before settling in at POFQ for 11 days Apr 22 to May 3.

We've just started kicking around ideas for our fall vacation and have decided that it is time to head back to Europe. Probably visiting places and friends in Italy, Germany and France. Right now the idea is to start in Rome and fly home from Paris. Which would mandate at least 2 full days at DLP at the end of the trip!

We're heading down on March 9th-16th and staying off-site this time at Sunset Keys in Windsor Palms. We've never rented a condo before but this one is owned by one of my music parents so I know it will be good. I can't wait to see the castle!!
