January 2013

We are heading down for a 5 night stay Jan. 18-23 staying at AoA LM room. My in-laws are staying in LK suite with my BIL and nephew. My parents are staying in king room at CBR. My DH and DD (both 8) went for 7 nights in Feb 2012 and stayed at POP. We saw AoA in the distance and are so excited to be staying here this trip. We still can't believe everyone is coming with us. I was able to make ADR's for all 10 of us. I changed some of them to things I knew our nephew would really enjoy (or at least I hope he will)...

Fri-Epcot, no ADR
Sat-HS, dinner at Whispering Canyon Cafe, MK at night
Sun-AK, breakfast Rainforest Cafe, HDDR dinner, MK at night
Mon-Epcot, HS, Mama Melrose Fantasmic lunch, Sci-Fi dinner
Tues - MK, Chef Mickey's late breakfast, O'Hana dinner

We did some of these last visit but mostly they are new places. We did every princess dining experience last time, so we didn't need to do those again this time. Hoping the last night we get to Poly in time to watch fireworks on the beach and then go to 8:30 reservations. I've never been to Poly for fireworks, but I've read about so many peopel doing this. Hope it's worth it and fun and works out with ADR.

It's hard making all the plans for everyone in a party of 10, but they're all leaving it up to me. It's a lot of pressure b/c I don't want anyone to be disappointed! Anyway, anything that stands out as not being a good idea or maybe an idea to make things better, please let me know!

Thanks!

Sorry it took so long. Like I said before, the DH just insisted that I play SW:tOR with him all weekend. The only time that I really stopped was Saturday night, when my youngest wanted me to make the mushroom risotto from Le Cellier and I had to go to the store to buy the stuff and then make it.

We stayed at the Pop on our trip this past June, and every time we drove by AoA, I wished it had been open for our trip. It just looked so cool!!

If anyone's flying down on southwest, the price of our flights down were reduced today, so I was able to ER a credit of about $36 per person! They have no change fees!

Hi! We are going Jan 2-9 staying in a family suite at All Star Music. This will be our family's fourth trip and my youngest DD's first trip. It is going to be a surprise for Christmas for our older two, they know we are going sometime next year but don't know when. We are planning another trip in June of 2013 and that is when they think we are going, hehe!

We can't wait to get back, it has been 2 years since our last trip!!

When are you going in June? We had to move our January trip to June, since our oldest DS wants to try wrestling this year. I just got the DH to realize last night, that we are going back in June 2013. We'll probably be there June 10-14. The WDW part of our trip this last year was a surprise, and they were just like, "oh, ok...cool". This time, they'll know about it and I'll let them help pick a few of the ADRs.

NICE!! I'm not flying Southwest but it's still good to know there aren't change fees for future travel where I might use Southwest!

Glad to hear that your flight went down. Ours keeps going up.

We are flying on points and ours went down too. We got points back. The only thing that sucks is that we had to buy extra points, which I would not have had to done. We just have extra points for another trip.

With southwest, you should be able to just do one, and not the other. That's what I did. My flight home went up so I didn't touch that one.

We have our resort chosen, tickets and dining part of a package and even have photopass share paid for...but we're waiting to book a flight on Virgin America between LAX and MCO. Saw that there's a 20% off sale today, but it doesn't cover our dates of travel. I'm hoping for luck that a 20% off promo code is released like last year...and hopefully that I can use that on top of a Cyber Monday sale after Thanksgiving!

Even during the waiting period until a Disney World, there's still waiting to be done.

Now that is November, all of us can say in two months we will be in Disney World!
I can't wait to see sunshine again, I am hoping the sun finally breaks through Sandy this weekend.
