No dates as yet but I'm thinking a week in SFC and a week at DL. This last trip was my second WDW visit and as much as I love it, I've realised I love Disneyland that little bit more.
Looking forward to watching everyone else's plans progress.
Welcome back Luisa! Looking forward to reading more about your trip. Really interested in your love for Disneyland over WDW.

I'm still squirrelling away money for our trip. ALthough I did win $30-odd in Tuesday's OzLotto the $30M I was hoping to win last night just didn't happen

I'm still deliberating over the southern road trip or drive to Chicago and fly to Montana. After looking at what we want to do in Orlando after the cruise and the time we have left before getting to Montana for Christmas I'm worrying we won't have enough time. So we're wondering if we just have Christmas on the road and be in Montana for New Year's or severely cut the road trip part. Still waiting for flights to open up to see the prices yet though.

But I also hope to find more work this year to pay for it all

ahh I am dying to jump on board and am wishing every night for a December 2013 trip to come true! The bf is giving me mixed signals as to whether it would be feasible or not
If not then I will be patiently waiting for everyone to share their wonderful plans & TR's!

I hear you on that! My Aus-US flights are booked and paid for but I'm a week or two from being able to book my first internal flights. And I want to get on with it so I know my magic express luggage handling etc is locked in lol.

Can I ask what your dates are? My TA said she can't book yet as our return dates are 21/1 or 22/1 and it's too far out at the moment.

Our return dates are a month prior to yours, 2 - 27 December. Different airlines open up at different times too, before they did their recent changes Virgin opened before AirNZ, but now I notice AirNZ's flights can be booked earlier than Virgin's. I only booked a couple of weeks ago, as soon as AirNZ opened (almost to the hour lol!).

We are looking at a return of possibly 22/1/14 so we'll be waiting a while I guess

It stops in at Auckland. But I'm from NZ originally so it's kind of like a quick visit home (even if only the airport lol), and I've booked skycouch, and I'm looking at it as a nice break in a long flight for kids (the actual flying time is only an hour more than direct), and it's a night flight which works well for the kids too so I'm looking at it as a win/win situation. The flights were cheaper than direct too. It's possible that between now and then there'll be sales, but I don't imagine what I could save is worth more than the peace of mind of knowing we're booked at a price I'm happy with now kwim. Better than me somehow stuffing up and being forced to pay $9,000 closer to the end of the year lol!
