I love the look of AoA; but not for this trip.

Well you can take me off this thread. We have definitely decided to go end December/January 2013/2014.

I know it will cost more in flights and accommodation travelling at peak time but this time of year suits us much better for a number of reasons:-

I work school terms and the end of year is very chaotic, knowing I had a disney trip to look forward to would be heaven
Daughter in year 12 and would of missed two weeks of term and probably should be studying during the break.
Time off with no pay - not good
Pressure from work to not take any time off during work terms
Arriving home from holiday with only one day until back to work

I feel very relieved we have finally made a decision, our 20 year wedding anniversary is also close to this trip so will celebrate while away.

So add me to the Dec/Jan thread when one is started

We're hoping to do something similar wiith our trip. We will be leaving New Zealand on the 21st of October, so will have one whole week to soak up the Disney Halloween goodness! Depending on how long we can stretch our trip out we might catch a glimpse of the Christmas overlay as well

NEWS FLASH!!!

I have just arrived home from a week away to my husband announcing we are going in September He'd been speaking to a friend while I was away who has been to Disneyland in January and said he would avoid it at all costs due to crowd numbers - so looks like September it is.

I'm thinking we will cut down our time away by 5 days so 11 nights in Anaheim and 5 nights in Hawaii to fit in with the holidays. I might leave work one week before the school holidays so I have a couple of days to recuperate when I get home.

So please re - add me to this thread!!! I'm actually really excited it's just over 1 year away so let the planning begin.

I'm tossing up between Desert Inn and Suites and the Tropicana for accommodation does anyone have any ideas? We are a family of 5 and would like a bed for everyone not a sofa bed if possible.

Hey tap dancer that is awesome!! Will add you back in when i get back to my main comp (using the phone app right now)

On the phone to carlo's brother the other night and i ask if he is happy to extend the trip a few days and increase the budget a little so we can stay a few days longer. Sure he says. No problem he says. Just as long as the trip is no more than 3 weeks. Right now its 3.5 weeks, edging towards 4 with downtime when we get back... Oh no. That wont do he tells me. He gets 3 weeks annual leave only. Ok but with weekends added that increases the time we can be away...right?

Oh no. 21 days from the date he last works to the date he returns to work including downtime when we get back and a day for him to travel interstate to get back home.

*facepalm* now my wonderfully preplanned trip is out the window and i have to create a new one. Oh and my 7 night cruise on the fantasy.. Also out the window.

Back home around 30th November.
