After enjoying following the threads for Sep/Oct this year from the initial planning to the count down and now the trip reports I was hoping to have the same camaraderie from some Aussie/Kiwis planning a trip next year in November or December.

Has anyone made any plans?

So Louisa looks like it is "me and you, just us two"!

I will say after reading the recent trip reports I am really happy we have decided on November when it should be a little cooler, I don't like high humidity.

What dates are you thinking?

Of course! I guess you are stuck between the Sep/Oct thread and the Nov/Dec thread!

Any plans yet on where you are staying? For how long etc..

We're looking at leaving mid October or thereabouts, Legoland and maybe going to Palm Springs then Arizona, up to Las Vegas then down to our cruise then onto Disneyland for 5 nights.

Staying at Disneyland Hotel and Grand Californian, other than that not a clue!

Our cruise is the Mexican Riviera and we'll be spending Halloween on board, might try to go to one of the Halloween parties at DL too

I'm thinking first or second week of December- I love the parks done up for Christmas. Will probably stay at Pop again (budget solo traveller), I really liked that resort.

First 2 weeks of November for us too!

Our plan is to arrive on November 2nd and stay till the 18th (16 nights) at WDW then onto Washington DC from 18th - 21st (3 nights), then New York from 21st - 28th (7 nights), then hopefully a stop over in Hawaii for a few days (depends on prices).

At WDW we are staying in a 2 bedroom apartment at Saratoga Springs Resort, we decided to stay there because we wanted some space and we liked the relaxing sprawling grounds. The travellers are my husband and myself, our two girls who will be 5 and 6 at the time and my parents. Originally we were looking at 2 rooms at POFQ but by staying in an apartment we will also have a kitchen, a washer/dryer and a lounge room which will be great once the girls have gone to sleep for the night!

I know Saratoga isn't a popular choice but with 16 nights I am happy to be a bit further away and a bit quieter. I also love the idea of the beauty spa, the community room for the kids, the new pool and walking to DTD

We will be going to Kennedy SC one day and spend another day outlet shopping, and along side the park days I want to have a few down days to sit back and relax.

Accommodation wise for the rest of the trip no decisions have been made!

It will be Thanksgiving in NY when we are there so we want to see the Macy's parade and then indulge in a little (or not so little) Black Friday shopping.

Loving the planning

We are thinking of heading there around that time next year too. My daughter will be just over one and hopefully walking, would be so magical seeing her meet the characters. And I love all the Christmasness that happens at WDW

Hi all. Joining in if I may!

My DD and I will be off to DL for 2 fun filled mother and daughter weeks from the 27th October through 10th November. We are not too sure where we will be staying yet, although would love to spend the last few nights in one of the Disneyland properties. We were in Anaheim for 3 weeks last December and stayed the whole time at the HoJo which was terfiific, so may stay there again to start with.

Our plan is basically to live at the parks for the whole time and of course attend a Halloween party! Can't wait to see the park done up for Halloween!!!
I know we will also be doing the Happy Haunts guided tour. We did the Christmas one last year and it was just wonderful! Will also be doing a couple of character breakfasts and am tossing up doing Fantasmic dinner again.

We are buying annual passes again, so will have an excuse to use them again the following year before they expire! We found them the best option last year as we were there for 3 weeks and saved loads with 20% discount on merchandise!

Looking forward to counting down with everyone! It's great to have the company of other "Disers" and makes the wait so much more fun!

Take care

Sue
