I'm hoping to book the same - only it would be either April 16-21 or April 13-18. DD's 5th b-day is the 17th and trying to figure if it's best to celebrate our first day or last (probably go with first!). Still trying to convince DH on the trip... Then I have to pursuade for the Royal Room...

MMS1125, I checked into OKW, and while the rooms look huge and it has 2 queen beds....I am not sure about the location? Seems kinda blah?? I could be wrong. We passed through that area on the Disney bus going to DTD and it seemed just like I thought " A golf course" Unless someone can chime in here and prove me wrong? We have stayed at Dixie Landings 1x, POFQ1x, and enjoyed the boat to DTD waiting for 2013 rates!!! ughhh

My husband says we should have the money to go in April 2013. We were planning to go in September 2012, but life got in the way. I am not sure when to go in April. My sons will be 5yo and 2yo. My husband wants to stay at AOA in a regular room. The last time we went we stayed at AKL in May 2008. I have only stayed at Poly and AKL. My eldest son will be in school when we plan to go. He will be attending a PPCD, Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities.

So happy to find this thread!!! We are tentatively planning for April 20-27, possibly adding a day or two on to one end if there are discounts offered. We were originally thinking of staying at the Contemporary, but I think we have mostly settled now on Beach Club, mostly because DH wants to be close to Epcot for dinner every night

This will be our 3rd "big trip" as a family, though I grew up taking many smaller or day trips, as did DH since we both lived in Florida for a while as kids. And sometimes we squeeze in a "mini-trip" when we go down to visit my parents who live in Naples, FL. But it will be DS's first trip - he'll be 2.5 when we go!!! (I was 6 months pregnant with him last time we went) DD will be 9.5. So, no coincidence that we're trying to get one more trip in before it gets much more expensive, lol!

I just wish they would hurry up and start letting us book packages - after they released them so early last year (and I had no trip to plan) I was very hopeful that we would be "official" by now.

My husband and I are planning our vow renewal and will be visiting April 14-20th 2013. Its SO far away and I'm perturbed with WDW not having the package rates available so we can get this show on the road but we are VERY excited to be coming back to my home away from home! Looks like the FL refurb will be a WONDERFUL anniversary gift! Now...if I could only be patient enough for April to get here!

Joining in.

We will be staying at WBC (Wyndam Bonnet Creek) so off-site I guess April 10-18 then DCL on 18th. I am very excited and after several long waits for trips I know it will come eventually but it seems so long now.

Hello all!

I've never posted on the DIS boards before (and just starting to read more) but I am so beside myself excited for my trip next April that I had to post because I know you all understand me!

I went to WDW twice as a kid and my husband and I have been twice as adults with friends and without any kids.

Next April my DH and I are taking our kids for the first time. DD1 will be 8.5 and DD2 will turn 5 while we are there. We're going with my in-laws who are DVC members.

Going April 14 - 20, 2013 and staying at the Boardwalk.

SO EXCITED and trying to not make my DH crazy with whatever new fact or idea I have each day.

We will be glad to keep your excitement growing! Warning, when your husband's eyes start to glaze over, it is time to stop talking and do some more DISing.

Be Our Guest

I'm back to do a little jumping up and down about the "Be Our Guest" restaurant. I see that they've announced that they will start taking ADR in August, well ahead of when we need to make ours in mid-October and I just saw the menu as well. Yay!!!

So EXCITING!!! LOL!
