POP is great! June is hot but that week is pretty good for crowds and kids make it better

The waiting game is killing me;; I can't wait to convert my resort only into a package, I can't wait to make my ADR's, I can't wait to get there already...I can't wait !

Everyday i'm on the dis for countless hours reading restaurant reviews, trip reports, etc. I have a pretty good idea of what type of experience I want to help create for my family and I since our last trip, our first trip, was a little too on the go for my mom. Minus the 2 travel days we were only there for 6 full days and we also had to work in the water parks since we'd purchased the water parks and more option. This trip will be different!

With 8 full days and no water parks and more option we will be able to get a lot done at a leisurely pace and still have plenty of down time...i'm sure mom will be pleased or this will probably be her last trip to the World! I plan to divide my time between the parks with 2 days at MK, 1.5 days at Epcot, 1 day at DHS, and 1 day at AK. The rest of the time will be spent touring other resorts, relaxing by the hotel pool, or at a park taking our time enjoying the full Disney experience!!!

This time I plan to make more ADR's than the last too! We traveled as a party of 10 so when making ADR's I tried to be respectful of everyone's budget so we only had 4 ADR's which for a 6 day trip and a full kitchen at the TH Villa's wasn't oto bad, but still I would like to have made more! I'm trying to narrow my growing reservation list down to between 8 and 10. From last trip I think we'll return to Tusker House - Donald's Safari Breakfast and maybe T-Rex! I'm definitely trying Kona Cafe', Via Napoli, Sci-fi Dine Inn, maybe Crystal Place and maybe Cape May Cafe'! There's a whole bunch of counter service restaurants I want to try too like Columbia Harbour House, and La Cantina de San Angel. I want a Lapu Lapu, a cupcake from Staring Rolls and Grey Goose or Grand Marinier Slushi!

I can't wait

You can make reservations directly with Disney via phone now. No package rates though.

For all of 2013? I might have to call if that's the case...

I'm not sure, but I believe so. Wouldn't hurt to call. You can only make room-only reservation.

I believe room only can be booked 499 days out but of course the rates will be the current year and will be adjusted when the new rates are released.

Hey everyone! The list updating will be delayed for a while. We are getting ready to go on vacation!!!! (not Disney ) So if you have posted and haven't seen your name added don't worry I will get it added when we get back.

I really hope when we get back we will be within a week or so of 2013 packages being released. I really hope they come out in June like they did last year.

So I will talk to everyone when we get back in a week and half!
