I completely agree! I feel like I've been waiting for the discounts to come out for months and months...oh, wait--I have! I see on other disboards that some pin codes for early 2013 were released yesterday (20-35% off room rates, depending on resort level), so I'm feeling particularly antsy now!

The current discount for Disney, which is a room discount for select dates Nov-Dec 2012, expires Oct 31st. I hope that doesn't mean that we have to wait until November.

I have a question on ADR. I booked one ADR for our February trip, but I haven't bought a dining plan yet. Once I buy the dining plan, when and how would I use the DDP on the reservation. I had put a credit card down for the dining reservation. We plan to make more reservations this week.

I believe most if not all of the pools are heated. So swimming should be do-able!

Everyone says that the weather is totally random in February, so who knows. I was kind of hoping it would be Blizzard Beach weather in early February but I heard this winter is going to be rough for the east coast.

No worries, when you are at the restaurants you tell them if you're using the Dining plan--generally at the beginning of the meal, so they ring it up correctly in their system. I believe that if you have a dining plan then you don't need to secure reservations with a credit card (I know it keeps you from having to prepay at Cinderellas Royal Table, not sure about the credit card thing, however)
If you make reservations now without a dining plan you don't have to go back and change your reservations over to the dining plan later, or anything like that. They just want your credit card # to make sure you'll cancel unwanted reservations ahead of time (by the day before, I believe).

Jannel - can I get added to the group? We are going with daughter's 4th grade class during Mardi Gras as part of the Disney Y. E. S. Program - dates are 2/9 - 2/16. We are staying at All-Star Movies, I believe. We haven't had our officially meeting, that happens next week.

I will pm you with my fb info...so very excited about this trip. Been several years since we've been back and have never done the Y. E. S. program.

Thanks for the information. That works out perfectly then because we plan to finish making all of our ADR's in the next few days but aren't planning to get the meal plan until later.

I went ahead and got booked our airfare since SWA is having a super sale right now. I have a feeling that FD won't be offered until November and I don't want to lose this airfare.

Last year in February was an awesome trip weatherwise. Only rained our last day and that night got really chilly...great excuse to buy a couple of Disney jackets we decided. 143 days to go...to soon to start soft packing?

We are going with another family for Mardi Gras break 2/9 - 2/15. It'll be my family's 2nd trip in less than a year and the other family's first trip. Staying at villas at WL. It'll be my first time staying "off monorail" so I'm a bit nervous about us getting around with two 4 year olds and one 2 year old ...

It's never too soon to start packing!
I started throwing things in my Disney box of stuff. (ponchos, dollar store toys, glow sticks, etc.)

Good. I'm glad I'm not the only one doing that. My sister thinks I'm crazy!

I think of it as getting prepared.

Last time we spent a small fortune on glow toys for my DD. This time I'm coming prepared. She's still young enough not to notice/care that it's not a "Disney" glow toy.

Thanks for the support! I'm already planning to head out this weekend to get my girls their new backpacks for the trip. And all the little things I would onlly use for Disney...hooks for shower curtain rod to hang bathing suits on, etc. I get giddy just checking in here and thinking of our trip!
