Planning on going August 23-31, 2013! It will be myself, DH, DS6, and DS4 (ages at time of trip). This is actually the first big trip we are going on with just our core family so it's going to be interesting. We usually go all over the U.S. and the world (Philippines, India, Caribbean islands) with either my parents/siblings or my in-laws so no babysitters this time. We're excited, though, to just have time for the four of us.

The last two trips to Disney we stayed off-site because my parents swapped their Aruba Marriott timeshare for Orlando, but this time we want to stay on-site. We are 99% sure we are going to stay at Poly. DH used to stay there with his family as a kid and he really wants to take our kids there. I'm not complaining! I haven't booked yet, but will definitely book prior to Feb so I can start booking ADRs. I'm just hoping they release room only discounts again for next year!

Planning on aug 23rd - sep 1st at AoA! We have never been in aug before usually go in oct, nov or jan but oldest is in middle school and doesn't want to miss to much school. The last two years we've gone in jan and the weather was really unpredictable so at least with aug we will be able to swim everyday! My DH is a little worried about the heat but I would rather be hot there than at home!

I am considering go in August 2013 or September 2013. We went at the end of August before and it was less crowded with most of the northerns back in school. My main concern is getting two rooms or one, with teenagers they like to have their space..

FYI, I live in CT & not sure if you consider that north, OK I know it is from NC but we don't go back to school until the last few days of August-usually the Wed or Thurs before Labor Day.

Keeping my fingers crossed for some free dining pixie dust

I am hoping for free dining for the third week of August next year as we were able to get it for that week last year (2011)

Free dining (the public offer) was only made available for the very last week of August this year, so I am hoping for some major pixie dust for 2013 and that the powers that be at Disney will include more dates in August next year so that my family can stay onsite at a Disney hotel again.

We are planning for next August as well! We just returned and I decided instead of being sad about being home we will plan for next year! We are planning an AoA/Poly CL split for about 15 nights.

Congrats... we were just there from 8/11-8/20 and wanted to book the FD bounceback for next year so bad but couldn't because of how late it was starting. With my oldest now in college and my youngest playing sports in high school, we'd have to be back in MA by the 19th. So, I'm hoping for another pin code discount - was lucky the last 3 years in a row, here's for wishing my lucky streak continues as we'd like to plan a return trip 8/9-8/18/2013!!
