WOW - crowded thorough Wednesday. Geez - we are going to be hitting the two busiest Jan weekends - the marathon and MLK weekend. Oh well - we will be in DISNEY with our FAMILY and that is truly what matters. PLUS we do not have to battle the heat and humidity of summer in Florida. Being from New England - I am NOT a fan of humidity, although right about now when they are talking about perhaps 16 inches of snow (give or take) a little heat would be welcome to turn it all into rain ::

Me! I'm going in Jan of 2014!

I hope they start letting us book online soon. Sorry if someone addressed this already. I haven't read through all the posts yet.

Looking at January 2014 for a BFF trip - hoping for FD or a room discount code!!! Mostly, FD ... Can someone tell me when Jan 2013 FD was announced? Also, what are the dates of the marathon and MLK weekend in 2014 - sorry I'm not from the States these days!

I'm subbing. We're trying to figure out our Jan/Feb vacation for next year and it will come down to free dining for us. Otherwise it's another cruise

Subbing! We are starting to plan out January 2014 trip for baby's first birthday. Since we did for one we really should do for two. .

Normally we travel in the fall so January will be new for us and in the past I haven't paid attention to any deals that weren't for when we would normally be going. Glad for this thread so I know what to be looking for!

Happy planning everyone!

Subbing! My bf and I are looking to take a trip in 2014 because we're not taking one to WDW this year. It's either going to be in January or May, we'll figure this out soon (hopefully). I have the opportunity to take a trip to Germany with my school, so when I find out if that is happening or not we will really start planning. If we do end up going in January it will most likely be during the 2nd or 3rd week. We went in January two years ago and the crowds were light and we had a blast.

I'm in! planning for January 2014 - 5th January trip for us but will be the first trip ever for DIL and (then) 2-year old DGD. So excited about this trip, but frustrated that pricing is not available. A good deal could mean a bump up from moderate to deluxe!

The only way to book room only that far out is to call. Unsure when you can book online. It may be when they release package prices this fall?

I am planning for January 2014 as well. Probably just for myself, Januay 10-13. Meeting friends there who are doing the marathon. I am hoping for a room only discount.

What? Surely they release packages far before that? Discounts would be coming out in fall I would think..? You can make dining reservations at 180 days too...?

Dug a little deeper. Looks like the package rates come out any where between mid-June to Early Aug.
