December 2013.

Time for December 2013 thread. Yes it is still a long way out but, planning is half the fun. So anyone else pre planning their trips yet? Come on come on I can't be the only one.


We are actually going to come in on Nov. 30, 2013 but the trip will start Dec 1. It will be 4 adults and 2 kids. One little princess who doesn't remember her 1st trip and thinks she's "never going to get to go to Disney" will be 5 at the time. The other will be gulp 9 (that is hard for me to say and he's my nephew I hate to see what his mom feels like)

I am trying to plan a December trip.. want to find out what week will be Pop Warner before I set my dates. We went on our first Disney trip this past March and loved it I can't wait to see Disney at Christmas, it must make the magic even more special.

We are planning on going back in 2013 also, in early December!! I don't want to go during PopWarner week (because of discounts being unavailable and it will be the first time we'll be staying on-site). We are a family of 6 so discounts or free dining would definiltely help us out - I know they are not guaranteed but I want to plan for a week when there is at least a chance of some savings.

Anyway...I was looking at past dates and in 2002 the calendar for Thanksgiving/December exactly matches 2013, and so I looked at the dates for Pop Warner in 2002 to hopefully have an idea of when they might be there - the dates for 2002 were Dec. 8-14. I am SO hopeful that this bodes true for 2013 as well, because the first week, right after Thanksgiving, is really the best week for us.

We are going in December 2013 also. I am truly excited to see all the decorations. The dates that I will be there do coincide with Pop Warner. We are going on a Fantasy cruise 12/14-21/13, so we were going to stay onsite a couple days before. This stinks. I did not realize the football/cheerleaders would be there. I guess no free dining for us that week

I was at ASSp in May when it was cheer competition of some sort. The cheerleaders were EVERYWHERE I vowed never to do that again. Oh well, I guess I have to...gotta be home for christmas to spend with the rest of the family or I would just stay onsite after the cruise.

Anyhoot, I am still excited to be going!!!!

I'm right there with you. I think we are going to stay at the new art of animation or that's what we are saying right now.

I'm so glad there are others planning a trip 18 months in advance! We are either going to DL in Sept 2013 or WDW in December 2013. It will be a while before we know for sure so I'm planning two trips right now!

If we go to WDW in December, DS will be 9 and DD will be 5. At this time I'm planning to rent DVC points and stay at BLT. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we can make it happen (financially).

We're in Texas so we're going to drive to Orlando. I'm planning our trip for the week before Christmas - so December 15-21, 2013.

I'm so excited, I can hardly stand it!!

I see that they have released free dining for December of this year. I hope they do this again during the time frame that I will be there next year! That would be awesome to have FD!!!

Hi everyone!

Gosh a December 2013 thread! I didn't expect to see one of these!

I'm Laura, 29yrs old from Paisley, Scotland. This will be my 5th trip to the world, but first time in a mod & first time with the DDP. I will be travelling with my mum (3rd trip), brother (3rd trip) and my dad who will be a first timer.

So we arrive on December 4th 2013 staying 8nights in Port Orleans Riverside with free QSDP, checking out on the 12th December & heading to Port Canaveral for our very first DISNEY CRUISE!!!!! We will be doing the 3night Bahamas Cruise on the Disney Dream.

Sooooo excited & I am having to stop myself planning already!

Looking forward to planning with you all

L x
