It is 27 degrees right now. Yuck!!! Tomorrow I think the high is 12, but then it's supposed to be in the 40's later this week. I miss the palm trees!

Nothing lined up yet, unfortunately. My mom came over last night and was talking about our whole family going to WDW. No word on when, but at least there is a trip in mind!

No word here either. I really would like to go back after T-day- if it's not late in the month again, that was the slowest time for us. Leaving around the 29th or so and coming back around the 6th or 7th. Maybe we will still have good offers. Dh said- maybe we'll skip 2010 and come back in '11. My poor little Kipper liked to fell out!!! He was horrified!! He said NO Way!! We gotta go back in at least a year!!!

I have my birthday trip, but I'm upset I didn't think to use my bounceback for the three days I'm not doing a package!! I hope a really really good AP rate or maybe free dining will come out to make it a little cheaper come the time. I'm going to be booking the room in March but I'm crossing my fingers for good deals to pop up during the summer!!!

I'm going with a fellow DISer and friend and meeting up with another DISer so it should be a lot of fun...I'm looking forward to the trip and celebrating with the Mouse!!

We have a trip lined up!! ah . . . but it's nearly a whole year away Better than no trip, though.

I'm trying to decided if I should book again through AAA or if I should go with Dreams Unlimited or Magical Journeys. Anyone have experience with DU or MJ?

Take a look at my signature - I'm going back in September on a bounceback. Although there is the possibility that if a good AP rate or other rate comes out for the 2nd week of December, I'd rather go for my birthday. As noted earlier in this thread (sometime around December, I think . . . ), having a December birthday can be tough - I never get to celebrate it on the day!

Maybe this year I will!

I wish we would have taken a picture last Monday with Sheree. We took one together on Thurs at DHS when we ran into each other again.



I was in the line right next to him too!!! What a coincidence!

So last night, I was totally pricing out another trip. My DH thinks I'm nuts and says we're not going again this year. Here's my thinking....maybe WDW or Visa will offer free dining again this fall. We could totally do that!!!!
That is way too funny ! LOL I guess him getting all those FP distracted everyone around him lol

Just to let everyone know they are extending the 7 for 4 deal for travel dates through Aug 15th! Nothing can be done until Monday Feb. 9th when it's officially released!


Was looking at dates....I just don't know about that heat...especially after going in January.

I'm *thinking* of going back in late-April/early-May for Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival [depends on what the AP discounts are]. I definitely want to go back in early December for MVMCP and all of the other wonderful WDW Christmas-y things [my Christmas present to myself]. Gotta use up that AP!

We'll see...I've been strategizing ways to pinch as many pennies as possible...

Well I have a new ticker...Easter vacation 2010...I volunteered to take my cousin and her best friend for their senior trip. It will be busy but that's okay...I would rather be in line at Disney in April then Cedar Pointe in July.

Return Trip...
Our Bounceback was for Deluxe or Villas only. We couldn't afford it for the dates even with the discount. I am kind of upset we didn't at least book the room only. Amazing they didn't even ask us?
I did get a PIN yesterday via email for March It is super cheap for Values- time of year is just not ideal.
I also priced out August (Back to School trip) for CBR - Mommy and Me only trip for dd and I.

I am really unsure about any other time of year as we always have done Jan.

Anyone else have comparables based on their other trips and this recent snowbird trip?

As for comparing months. . . Mid-May is less crowded than the week we were just there in January. But May is a lot hotter than January. So it all depends what is most important to you. I liked the lower crowds in May, but I also liked not being so hot and not having to drag the kids around in the blazing heat in January, so it's a toss up for us.
